Power Poppy and Mom

Hello Everyone! 

Spring seems to be officially here, weather wise.  I am always amazed how one day everything is brown, gray and lifeless, and it seems the next day everything is spring green.  My soul is certainly renewed this time of year. 
Spring weather and the end of April signals that Mother's Day is almost here.  I got busy making a card for my mom-

 I got inspiration from several challenges-

 Fusion for colors~

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Showers or Flowers!

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge-Spring

My Power Poppy image is colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I used SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles for my gray panel. 

That's it for me; I appreciate you stopping by and hope you have a blessed Sunday!

A Little Plaid, a Big Blessing

Hello All! 

It has been a very, very long time since I blogged.  Actually, it has been months since I crafted.  Thanks to all of you if you are still following me! 
I imagine that many of you have been where I have- absolutely no MOJO and even worse, absolutely no desire to craft.  Wasn't even sure I was ever going to ink up a stamp again. 
But, at least for now, I have had some desire to get out the ink, Copics and paper to craft. 
I started with a baby card and a fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

The Stamp and sentiment are both Unity Stamps.  And don't you just love the Lawn Fawn plaid paper?!  The images were colored with Copics, fussy cut out and then popped up on dimensional tape.  I used my Misti to get perfect placement of the image on the small white squares. 

Here is the sketch~

 And if you haven't heard, Lesley of Always Playing with Paper, is expecting her precious little one very soon!  I missed the official party for her, but getting in my Congrats for the new baby now.   So happy for you all, Lesley!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend; it is a beauty here in St Louis.

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!
