Thinking Spring and Sunny Days

Hi Everyone! 

I am starting to get back into the swing of stamping and of coloring.  I played along in a couple of challenges using this super sweet Unity Image ~


I colored this beauty with Copics.  The scalloped edges were die cut with a small scallop die from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday~

I am also linking up to the fabulous Darnell's NBUS challenge.  For those of you who are not familiar with this, means using a never before used schtuff item.  My stamp is fresh out of the package and finally saw some ink!

That's it for me!  Have a blessed week!

Getting Back on the Horse

Hello Everyone and Happy New Year!

Yes, I am a bit late.  Truth be told, I hit some serious crafting burnout and have been avoiding my craft room for 2 months. Yesterday, I started to get the itch.  The itch to play with Copics, play around with techniques and color. So, I got back on the crafty horse.
Feeling a bit rusty, so I went to a couple of trusty challenges to get inspired~


I used the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch~


And the colors from Color Throwdown~


I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then masked it off.  I also masked off the diagonal edge of the background.  The background is down with Copic markers and then texturized with alcohol and burlap.  The image was then colored with Copics.  The sentiment was perfectly placed using my MISTI.

Thanks for stopping by!

Introducing Cocoa Sends Love

Hello Everyone! 

Cardmaking and blogging have taken a back burner here, as I am guessing it has for you as well, with all of the events and Christmas preparations.  But, I did make time for a brand new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Set, Cocoa Sends Love~


The set has multiple sentiments in it, ranging from love to Get Well, but it also works wonderfully for Christmas.  The image is colored with Copics, then fussy cut out.  I placed it in the middle of a large snow bank!  A forest of pines in the back was made with the Landscape Silhouettes Stamp Set.  I added touches of Christmas with the holly image from the new Christmas Borders Stamp Set.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Pine Stamp Set.  The elements are popped upon dimensional tape.  Sequins and some baker's twine finish it off.
I was inspired by the colors at The Color Throwdown this week~


Thanks so much for stopping by, and in case this is my last post before Christmas, 
Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Coffee Loving Snowman

Hello Everyone!

Today marks the beginning of Amy Tsuruta's Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, Winter edition!
Check out all of the inspiration- coffee, tea or hot chocolate style- and link up your creation on the blog to join her!


Not sure if it is the busyness of the Christmas season or if I am just worn out, but the MOJO has been sorely lacking.  CAS was the way to go for this warm beverage themed winter card~


I used the sweet snowman from Sweet 's Sassy Stamps' Snowman Soup Stamp Set.  He is colored with Copics.  The background snowflakes are 3rd generation stamping. The snowflakes are from the new Holiday Hugs Stamp Set. I pieced my sentiment together using the new Rebecca Script Alpha and some individual words from other stamp sets.
And this is a SLC, too!  It is not too often that I can do that!

I used the colors in the inspiration photo at Pinspirational Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by; be sure to visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog for all the details, including info on prizes!

Have a warm, blessed weekend!

Vintage Christmas

Hello and Happy Monday! 

Hope your weekend was a good one! 

Today's card was made with the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Stamp Set, Old Fashioned Christmas


This single stamp is a silhouette image, but with the MISTI stamping tool, it makes adding multiple layered colors to this stamp a snap.  I used various shades of greens and brown for the tree trunks.  Once the image was completed, I cut a mask for it and sponged in the pink winter sky. 
To create the snow fall, I spattered some watered down white acrylic paint. 
I embellished with pine cones from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Set, Christmas Pine

I am linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, 'Anything Goes'. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!

Lee Ann :)
