MFT Merry Wishes

Tell me you didn't just go "awwwwwww"....cuz I sure did when I finished the card.  I think tho, it has a lot to do with these cute little creatures!  I've use MFT's "Merry Wishes" stamps and the paper is from Photoplay's Christmas Cheer 6 x 6 paper pad.  It's AWESOME!! 

I've coloured with my copics again....they're just so quick and easy but I should try my Zig Clean Brush markers.  I bet these images would be easy to use them with and super cute.  For some details I've added liquid pearls to the tree, stickles to the snow on the cabin and bird's pom pom and some glossy accents on the cabin.  All these minor details just add so much to a card don't ya think?

A closer look a that super cute cabin.  Oooooo bet it's so cozy inside with fireplace going, sitting on the couch with a hot chocolate and Bailey's and a blanket over your lap while watching snowflakes fall through the windows.  Sigh.....I wish snow gave me that amazing feeling year round.  不不

I hope you like this even tho it is a bit simpler for me because I'm enjoying making them.  It's nice to be able to get 2 of these done in the time it takes me to do 1 for my other style.  A few years ago someone had mentioned to me that a certain CHA was all about quick and easy.  At the time I couldn't understand ... what?  Why?!  Now I get it.  不不不

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Latte!

I needed a relatively quick card but I also wanted to play with my new Tonic Coffee Die & Shaker that I got from Scrap N Stamp Canada!  3 other shakers might have ended up in my basket too!  喫  So I had to go searching online for some digital papers when I stumbled upon the Graciellie Design online store.  There are some very nice paper packs as well as digi's there so I was pretty happy!!  This set of papers is Coffee Lovers Digital Paper pack.

I added some Picket Fence sequins from Scrap 'n Stamp but I don't think I'm done purchasing those either.  They have some new mixes and I'm likin' them a lot!  

I added some glossy accents to the Tim Holtz spoon then covered with distress stickles to make it appear there's still sugar on the spoon.  The little sugar cubes are real sugar cubes that I filed down to size to fit.  By the way, those sugar cubes are freakin' tough!!  I thought I might have to go through a couple of broken ones but nope!!  Just filed them down and voila!!

I hope you've enjoyed my card.  Thanks a latte for stopping by!!!

A Beary Mice Surprise

Just a card I had shared on FB but I didn't add it onto my blog.  As the title of the post says, this image is "A Beary Mice Surprise" from Di's Digital Stamps.  She also has a pre-coloured image if you're in a hurry or you're not into colouring so much.  LOL! 

I made a super cute confetti shaker card.  I cut the YUM sentiment 4 times in white and then once in teal.  I realized it needed a bit more zip so I added some stickles to the top.

I coloured this image using my copics and also learned some of my techniques form Kit & Clowder.  She has some really amazing classes.  In fact, I would say they are the best but she has some Create & Learn monthly classes where you can learn lots as well for a mere $20!!  Great pricing!! 

Enjoy your Sunday!  I'm off to colour!  YAY!

Wishing You Christmas Cheer

I thought I would join in on MFT’s sketch challenge this week. I decided to use the stamps from the “Christmas Cheer” set to create this little cutie scene. I’ve distressed the background using distress oxides which just happens to be my favourite background technique at the moment. I even enjoyed adding splats and have managed to keep them off my clothes and surrounding area’s now.

I tend to really think outside the box when it comes to sketches.  I've used MFT's "Cloud Cover" dies to use as snow drifts, which would represent the 2 strips under the main focal square.

Here are the colours I've used for my background:

Well that was fun!!  On to the next card!  Hee Hee!!

Hugs to all!

Print and Cut using SVG files and PNG digi images

Welcome back!!  Today I'm going to share a quick video tutorial on how to print and cut your digi images and SVG images.

For this quick and easy card I've used images and cutting files from the big Waddy and Wanda Penguin bundle.  This is so handy for when you're in a pinch and need something in a hurry.  Or, you can make it fancier by printing off the images and colouring them yourself but I opted for the pre-coloured images.

I printed off 2 layers of images.  The first one, I die cut using a circle die and the 2nd set I cut with my Silhouette and popped up with some foam dots for some dimension.  

I've used Polkadoodles Merry Christmas die and then adhered some black glitter to the sentiment using glue from a stick pen to make it easier.  It was still a bit difficult I won't kid you.  Hindsight next time I would use black glitter paper.  丹‍♀️

Here is my video to print and cut.  I hope it's something you find useful.  

Have a wonderful day!

Out of This World

HA HA HA OMG HOW CUTE IS THIS?!  I just love this crazy little guy!!  It's from Kraftin' Kimmie's clear stamp set called "Out of This World".   I paired this little fellow up with some papers from Polkadoodles called "Little Monsters" printable digi paper.  I made this card for a very special boy who turned 1 and is just the cutest boy EVER!  Ok, maybe a bit biased as he's my step-grandson but freakin' adorable!  .Had to add the googley eyes tho so he could shake the card even tho he might not understand the card.  Hee Hee

Sooooooo as a result of me having to buy some googley eyes, my sister was here and ended up doing THIS to my husband's truck.  OMG we laughed so freakin' hard and we had to be careful because he was home while we were doing it.  He did think it was pretty funny tho.  Good sport however, they didn't stay on for long.  He took the off before he left for work - damn him!  ha ha ha!!!

Happy thanksgiving to all my Canadian peeps!!
Have a great Sunday!!

MFT Squirrel

Just sharing a super cute card I made for My Favorite Things color challenge.

I've used MFT's "Squirrel" stamp set and their "Cloud Cover Die-namics".  I did add some blue at the bottom of the cloud but I think I would need to add a bit more so you can actually see it in a photo.

I stamped my images and then masked them off.  I covered them and did the background using my distress oxides which is always fun!!  Love doing that!

Here are the colours we're suppose to use:

I'm really having fun with these on layer scenes.  It's extremely relaxing. 

Have a great day!

Polkadoodles Boneshakin Shaker Card

Hi there!  Today I'm going to share a shaker card featuring some new Boneshakin goodies!!  I started by using the Grungey Slime halloween stencil but didn't actually make it that grungy.  Next time I'll try green or gross red.  LOL!  I first did the stencil in black distress oxide and then covered it with Rangers Stickles Asteroid glitter gel.  Looks super sparkly in real life.  I used a piece of design paper from the "Boneshakin Halloween 6" x 6" paper pad, which by the way, has a bunch of fun and very traditional Halloween patterns and colours.  Love that! 

I was on a tear colouring up a bunch of these cuties at the same time and used my copics.  I really like how her hair turned out!!  OH and speaking of "her", this is Best Witches Winnie Wednesday clear stamp set.  Isn't she cute with her little kitten?!  弘

I've stamped a sentiment from the Boneshakin Halloween Winnie Wednesday stamp set, on to some copic paper and then did a graduated colouring to add some colour.  They looked kind of plain when I had them on just white paper so I wanted to pump them up a bit.    I also put some foam dots behind for a bit of dimension.

Here is a little shaker video to see the movement of the shaker guts.  Yes that's a technical term "shaker guts". 

For those of you who normally have kids that trick or treat I hope something gets sorted out to allow them to collect some goodies.  I know it won't be the same as any other year but what is these days?

Hugs to all and thanks for stopping by!
