Citrus Cards

Hello Bloggers,
Hope you all are enjoying your week.  We've had some nice weather the last few days here in Connecticut and it's so nice to feel the warmth and be able to wear short sleeves again.  Tonight I'd like to share a couple of cards that I recently made that remind me of warm weather.  They share the same layout, which was inspired by a card in the most recent Paper Crafts magazine, but have a different color palette.  I hope you enjoy them, I know I certainly enjoyed making them.

I used my new Martha Stewart border and butterfly punch, the flower is from Prima, I dyed the seam binding on both cards using my Lindy's Stamp Gang.  The heart stick pins on both cards are from Wild Orchard Crafts.  The stamped sentiment and punch on both cards are from Stampin Up.  The paper is a recycled mat stack from K &Company (Sunset Orange) that I got a few years ago on clearance from Wal-Mart.
Another Martha Stewart border punch and the same K &Company matstack only in Grass Green.  The little rose is from Wild Orchard Crafts.

Happy Easter

Hello Bloggers,

I've just finished up with the last of my Easter projects; nothing like waiting until the last minute.  I made the usual cards for my nieces and for my daughters, boyfriends daughter, but this year, I pulled out the cricut and made some matching gift boxes and filled them with Easter goodies.  They were so fun to make and I think they turned out quite nicely.  Both images on the cards are digital and I got them from Tiddly Inks and colored them with my copic markers. I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend!!

I used my new Spellbinders Nestabilites labels twenty to cut out the card and image. 

Used my new Nestabilities Lattice Rectangles to cut the mat and rectangles for the image.

I used the Tim Holtz Baroque die to cut out the card and the mini Baroque movers and shapers for the image.

Color Me Copic Club Challenge

Hello Bloggers,

Well, it certainly has been a while since I've posted.  Between work and traveling to Florida recently, I've been extremely busy.  In between though, I have been able to get a little bit of crafting in and will be posting those creations in a few days, in the meantime, I'm posting an entry to the 1st Color Me Copic Club challenge.  I've joined this club recently to learn some copic coloring techniques from some wonderfully gifted artists.  Our first tutorial was learning how to color skin with our copics.  This surfer girl image was drawn by the super talented Riku Yanki.  Check out her YouTube channel for some unbelievable videos.  I've learned so much just from the first tutorial and can't wait to see and learn more!
