I purchased a kit from Krazy Kreations because I wanted to try out coloring with copics on glitter paper. I really enjoyed it. The glitter paper is quite expensive and I have read on some blogs and reviews that you can ruin your copics by coloring on glitter paper. I tried it anyway and I figure I can always replace the nibs if they get too worn out. Here is the card:
I adhered the shoes, broom and stars to the glitter paper, colored them with copics and then fussy cut them out. So what I learned from purchasing this kit is that I still love, love, love outline stickers, I can’t spend that much money for glitter paper, and using microfine glitter and burnishing it in and all that business is just too, too messy for this card maker.
I would like to participate in the following challenges:
Challenge over at SAS4KIDS is calling for cards for mom that would be coming from the child. Between the two hospitals that I ship for there are about 210 kids, and our faithful card makers never let us down. I had this peel off sticker purse (Elizabeth Crafts), that I had already colored using SAKURA glaze and glitter pens. The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps and the papers are from Stamps of Life.
Today’s card is for my niece Kate. Kate just turned 11 and she is a ray of shineshine. Her smile lights up a room. She is incredibly wise and talented in everything she does. And she wants to try everything. When she plays the violin she gives me the chills – “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is my fav. She plays baseball, basketball and her skills on the swim team are awesome. She also plays the drum and can carry quite the tune. Happy Birthday my darling niece Kate.
A simple card. Used Chevron paper from Recollections, Happy Birthday die cut from Stamps of Life, Birthday word is an outline sticker as well as the sequins.
My niece’s birthday was April 9th. I have to tell you a little bit about her. She has become an incredible young woman with vision, drive, tenacity, love, kindness and the most beautiful smile. She finished college early and is now studying to become a chiropractor. She is the oldest child of my youngest brother Bill and sister in law Linda. When Linda went back to work many years ago I cared for Bridgette her first year and I have to tell you she was the most pleasurable baby. Her smile and laughter were as infectious as they are now. Happy Birthday Bridgette. I love you. Stay the course. Here is the card I made for her: I used outline stickers from Elizabeth Crafts and colored in with copic markers. Those gems are actually stickers — from Dazzles. Thanks for stopping by.
The Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH this week is for fall cards. So here are a few I have been working on. Also, please forgive me but I am learning how to add links in my posts, so if it doesn’t work — blame it on the learning curve (I’m actually only trying it on one link).
For these three cards I used the adorable digi images from Sassy Cheryl’s Stamps. The little boy is Noah and the little girl is Sally. I used copics to color them.
The papers on this card are digi papers from Doodle Pantry:
This card I embossed the GinaK Design tropical flowers in black and sponged the background in Memento Morocco, punched the corners and layered on white, layered on black and layered on GinaK Design Sweet Mango card stock, my card base is white. I used tiny black brads in the corners. I think this qualifies as a “FALL CARD” because of the colors.
This last card I used the same flowers and black embossing and used MFT Dienamics Blueprints 3 (which I love, love, love) to die cut the shapes. I also like using the Elizabeth Craft outline stickers (pumpkin) which is colored with Sakura Gel pens on acetate.
Yes that’s right. I am in the process of creating Autumn cards for OWH. They will be due the end of next month. So I started with Sketch 182.
For the card I used score lines starting right to left (instead of left to right – by accident) and stamped the leaves in between the score lines. I used an outline sticker of the pumpkin on acetate, colored it with Sakura glaze pens cut it out with a circle die. Cut a slightly larger circle die out of cardstock and mounted the pumpkin with pop dots onto the cardstock.
