It’s Never too Soon…

IMG_4733to start your Christmas Cards.  Yep, I’m always going to do mine early but you know how it is, there’s always another card to make first.

This card uses an adorable image by Scrapper’s Delight called ‘Fairy Day Dream.”  I had this great stack of Disney Holiday paper and was going to pair her up with a patterned paper that had Tinkerbell scattered across the page, but it just didn’t work out. It was way too busy looking. This one is a much more subtle Christmas print and I love how the colors go together.

So, how many Christmas cards have you done?

Don’t You Just Feel Terrible…

when you look at this poor little Dino? I wanted to make a card for a sick friend and thought this image from Scrappers Delight called “Draco Get Well” would be perfect. You can find him and his friends here and there’s even some Christmas images. My only problem was that I didn’t get done with the card before my sick friend got better.  Well, the thought was there and the card will be put to good use sometime in the future.  You can never have too many get well cards on hand!

Supplies:

The image was colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils. I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make the lines across the bottom.  I also used the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners.

LOVE Your Lip Sticks?

If so, you’ll love the new Friday Freebie this week over at Scrapper’s Delights Facebook Group.  To me this very sophisticated digital image lends itself to all kinds of Romantic and girly-girl card ideas.  Lets have some fun and see what ideas you can come up with.

Here’s my card:

The Digital Image is by Scrapper’s Delights and was colored with Copic Markers. I also used a .005 Zig Millennium Black Marker for the scroll on the lip stick case.  All papers were from my scrap box and the flowers and bow  are from Joanns.  The sentiment was printed on my computer… and I think it says it all!

For Your Readers…

Many of my friends and family are avid readers and I always enjoy making them new bookmarks.  Here are a few of my more recent ones. They make great gifts when something more than a card is needed:

The first one uses a cute “Edwin” stamp by Magnolia Stamps of Sweden. The image is colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.  I used a We Are Memory Makers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners. The ribbon and the charm were in my stash. (Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but they were all I had.)

Bookmark with Magnolia Edwin

The second bookmark is made by using a giant paper clip. I used the Stitched Oval Dies from Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and just cut them in half to make them into a rainbow.  The Stitched Sun and Clouds are also from Die-Namics. (The book was also a great “read.”)

LOVE Me Some Mermaids!!!!

Over the years I’ve bought some really cute Mermaid stamps, both digital and rubber.  Each year I would use one on a special birthday card for my dear friend.  She passed away several years  ago, but I still find myself buying mermaid images and thinking of how much she  would have enjoyed her next card.

This image is a digital one by another new-to-me artist Amanda Byron of Faery Ink Stamps. “Gabbie Frangipani Mermaid” Isn’t she the cutest?

 Supplies: Digital image by Amanda Byron of Faery Ink.  Colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.  The Shell die is a Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and the Seahorses and Branch are by Memory Box.  Flowers are From the Value Bins at Michaels as were the rhinestones. I used “Stardust” Stickles by Ranger and Wink of Stella Brush Tip Clear Glitter Pen.  Papers are by Core’dinations and “Journeys” by GED Studios. Others papers were scraps.
