Lawn Fawn Critters in the Burbs

This is a stand-up birthday card. I used the clouds from Sunny Skies. The bush at the bottom with the bunny is the top of the tree. I do not remember the manufacturer of the Happy Birthday die.

I will link this to the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

One more Halloween card!

I just can't get enough of the these cute critters in "Trick or Treat"!!!

Happy Halloween!!


I love making Halloween cards!  So much fun! At the same time I took an Online Card Class for Copics. I learned so much about coloring these little critters!

having fun! with an angel!

This is a Phyllis Harris designed stamp by Unity Stamps. I used Copics to color the
image. I tried a technique of coloring the background by Jennifer McGuire (I couldn't find the video that demonstrated this technique but she does mention it here). I  went over the image with an embossing pen and then covered that with clear embossing powder and heated it.  I then was able to go in with Distress Ink to color the background. I wish that would have remembered to wipe my card stock with an anti-static because some of the embossing powder stuck to the card in front of her face
resisting the Distress Ink.  I will keep trying!!!!!

Day 12 - Copic Hacks - Copic Marker for Card Makers

I bought this 4 cup container from Land of Nod. I have touches of turquoise in my
craft room (it is my favorite color)! I certainly don't have many Copic Markers but perhaps I have enough (is there such a thing?). I have ordered a refill for the Colorless Blender and W1 so I really appreciate the information from this lesson. Notice I have the stickers (oh wait, this photo is too blurry to see the stickers!  LOL!!) on my markers.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Day 11 - Hiding Mistakes - Online Copic Markers for Card Makers

Okay so this is the same card as Day 10 but I have been trying to rescue it!
I used many of the same techniques as Kelli used for her critters. I replaced the sled's runners, I used black pen around parts and hid errors with a white gel pen.

Day 10 - Copic Markers for Card Makers - Finishing Touches

I used all the final touches that I could. I did the double blue shadow around the image. I used Heidi Swapp's Glitter pens.  I used Uni-Ball Signo white pen to add snowflakes and to hide errors where I could. I tried to go over the image with a black pen but it smeared badly so I stamped, cut out and pasted a new runner where I tried the pen work.
