MFT - Polar Bear Pals

Helllloooooo out there!!  I made this card awhile ago but never did give it away yet so YAY for me!!  Stash for next xmas!  LOL!!  I used the super cute set from MFT called "Polar Bear Pals" and coloured them using my copics.

I've created the scene by adding Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Mountain" border die and the slimline die from Honey Bee stamps called "Honey Cuts".  The chipped sapphire and dusty concord distress inks were the only colours I've used for my water scene and then did some "splats".  OH and the cute ice they are floating on are dies from MFT's "Grounding Elements".

I'm entering my card into MFT's "Slimline" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Hello Frosty Snowman

Today I have a shaker to share using Hello Frosty Snowman digi from the new Too Cute Frosty Smiles collection.  

Since this is a digi you could also grab the pre-coloured image and BONUS, they come with an SVG file!  What I love about this collection is that some of them can serve double duty purposes as to me, this one looks like a Valentine's card cuz if you're like us, we still have snow in February!   I cut the circles for the shaker using the Posydoodles - Circles die set and filled it with some fun hearts, stars and sprinkles.

I have cut a total of 6 tags with most being papers from the Timeless Rose paper pad.  I also added a sentiment from the Sentimentals 6 x 6 paper pad, which is filled with multiple various sayings and handy for lots of different themes.  I even used a tag from the Posydoodles Basics Tags set.  My fav!!!!  😀 You can see in this photo where each layer is and I've even popped up a few of them using foam dots.

And a pic of my usual bouquets filled with a shabby chic ribbon, a twine box, and amazing gem and  some Wild Orchid flowers.

What kind of cards are you working on now?  Valentine's or are you starting with Christmas cards again?  I'm doing both!  I love this hobby!!  😀💕

Hello Bluebird - Feed the Birds

I needed a few thank you cards so figured I would start by playing with some new stamps I got from Hello Bluebird.  Well ... new to me because they are from the late November release but I just received them about a week ago.'s so hard to have patience when you're waiting for something so super cute!!  LOL!!

I started out with the "Big Mountain" scene die, laid down some distress inks, spritzed some water and then added some white paint splats to make the background. 

The set I've used is "Feed the Birds" and I'm looking forward to trying the girl image in another scene like maybe fall because even in fall, we can get some pretty frigid weather here.  

I've listed the copic combo's I've used below and even tho this looks like a simple card, it always amazes me how much time I spend on them.  I think it's the decision making process that slows me down but it's the process that I love so much.  

I know it's definitely a different kind of style for me but I'm really enjoying it.  I hope you have too!

Stamping Bella "Beatrice & Barbara are Besties"

When it comes to cards for my sister I really go to town.  The only problem that comes up the following year is ... "ok crap, how am I gonna top this?"  LOL!  I'm sure we've all gone through that.  Yet, every year so far I've manage to do it but I will say it is getting harder!

The stamp I used is from Stamping Bella called "Uptown Girls Beatrice and Barbara are Besties" and I used my Prismacolour pencil crayons to colour and create the rest of the scene.  This is what the image originally looked like.  

Don't they look like they're just enjoying each other but also seriously up to something?!  Such a great depiction of us!!  🤣🤣

I had this gorgeous heart in my stash so I added some berries and Wild Orchid flowers.

I've used some Laswerowe Love chipboard hearts, painted them with Tim Holtz distress paint and then covered them icicle Stickles.  

Hope you've enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Warm and Fuzzy Penguins

My mom's favourite colour is blue ... I think ... ha ha ha last time I checked anyway, so I thought it would be nice to make her an xmas card in that colour.  Besides, lots of xmas cards are in blue because of the snow.  😀

This is a Stamping Bella image called "Warm and Fuzzy Penguins" I coloured with copics.  When I was finished I added dots using Inkssentials enamel accents to create the snow storm.  Takes a lot to get your first ones down cuz it's like "ummmmm should I do it?  eeeeee what if I wreck all my colouring?"  So I just took the dive and PHEW it was successful!!  🤣🤣🤣

I love these sugared apples they're so fun for Christmas cards and anything glittery really!

Ok so I think this is one of my last cards for the season.  Did you get all the cards done that you wanted?  I didn't but this was such a weird year for everything that I suppose no one will even notice.  LOL!

MFT - Present Time

Well this was fun!!  I've used some MFT images and created a fun winter scene using Present Time and Cloud Cover and coloured with my Copics.  All combo's are listed below.  😀

Aren't they so so cute?!!  I've used my white pen to try and add some accents but I find it difficult to get a nice solid white line.  They don't seem to like being used over copic marker but if you have any tips I'd love to hear them!  😀

Well another card done for this year!!  YAY!!  Add that to the pile WOO!

Did you get as many cards done as you wanted?

Thanks for coming by!
