OCC Day 6 & 7

Hello everyone!

I know I haven't been posting much on my blog lately as we finally got the computer back tonight...Yay!!!!!  Our old one crashed so when we had the data transferred over to the new one we found out that the old one could be fixed.  So...that means I get the new computer!  **happy dance**.

Now on to Day 6 of Copics for Card Makers. I have a BIG soft spot for most anything Lawn Fawn, so when I saw these were in as the class practice images I was tickled pink.  I just love this pup from the Critters in the Burbs and the fox is just as adorable from the Critters in the Forest.







Day 7.  I love this little robot vampire!  He is just adorable.  Sandy took us through how to make the image look more realistic with shadows and highlights with difficult colours such as red, white and black.  She makes it look so easy and seamless but it's a bit trickier than it looks but super fun to do.




Here is what I did for the flowers with the reds and whites.


Thanks for stopping by!

OCC Day 5 Copics for Card Makers

Hello everyone.

Today we are learning to do hair and skin.

Here is my practice sheet for hair.  I have my browns on the way so I thought I would use some funky colours to practice.  My girls sure liked how it turned out.






Here is my sheet for the ballerina.  I was inspired by Kathy's colouring of the sweet little dancer.

Online Card Class - Copic Colouring for Card Makers Day 1 & 2.

Hello everyone!

I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog.  There were some family things I had to deal with and as soon as that was all taken care of and I finally had time to post on my blog again, my hubby's computer wasn't working.  So...with that said it's now up and running!  Thank you for being patient.

On to the newest Online Card Class that is "Copics for Card Makers"!  How exciting is that!!!!
I think I'm safe to say that I am NOT the only one who has been waiting for this class for a very long time.  It's still not too late to join if you are interested.

So for the first week will be about technique and getting used to what your Copics can do.  Sandy Allnock, Kristina Werner & Jennifer McGuire and guests are doing an amazing job at showing us that Copics don't have to be scary!

Here is what I've been working on the past few days...

Day 1,  I love the colours of the present now that I look at it from here.


Day 2...




I'm still having computer issues so I will add links to the teachers' websites in my next post (hopefully!)
That's all for today.  Stay tuned for Day 3 & 4 coming tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey pumpkin - Card

Hello everyone.

I have a card to share and it's my first Halloween card of the season.   I have to admit as much as I love all the Halloween stamps and decorations we are not much into the holiday.  


I used the SSS hey pumpkin stamp set, distress inks, LF sequins and Copics to color the kitty and pumpkin. I used Versafine onyx fir the sentiment and a Fabre castel PITT artist pen in size M for the lines around the image. I also used some embroidery thread behind the image to add dimension. The stencil is one I found at Michaels in a four pack of 3x3 stencils. The card is 4x4.25  and to finish it off I used Wink if Stella clear glitter pen but unfortunately you can't see it. 

I wanted to let you all know that I may not be posting much in the next few weeks as I have my grandmother who is in palliative care so I'm spending most of my time with her and my family. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawn Fawn - Thinking of you Card



Hello everyone,

Here is a card I made with the Lawn Fawn "Friendship Grows" stamp set.  I stamped the image with Ranger Archival ink and coloured in the sunflower with distress inks.   I used embossing paste and coloured it with distress ink and then I used Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil for the background.  

         I used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames stitched rectangle die to cut it out the panel.  I then cut out a piece of vellum and sewed it on the top and bottom of my panel.  I mounted that onto a piece of mustard colour card stock that came with an old SSS CK and I'm sorry but I don't have the colour anymore.  I then mounted all of that onto my card base which is Recollections 110# card stock.  I used the Lawn Ornaments sequins that came from another CK but they are no longer listed on the SSS website.  I also used Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Crystal Clear sequins as well.

         I then stamped the sentiment with Memento tuxedo black ink from the "In my Heart" stamp set, which is SO adorable!






Thanks for stopping by!

See you again soon.
