House Mouse Challenge #63: Multi Fold Card

Great Challenge. I used a design that I have used previously on cards but it is my favorite multi-fold card. I stamped my image on Neenah Classic Crest - Cream cardstock with Tuxedo Memento Black. Colored the image with Copic Markers. Cut out and embossed with Nestabilities. I also covered the entire drink filled portion of the glass with crystal effects. It looks great. I love that stuff. Other Cardstock is Stampin' Up and the designer paper is BoBunny. The flowers are Prima and the silver hardware is from the SU! Hodge Podge collections. The ribbon is simple chocolate brown grograin. The sentiments are SU!

Magnolia-licious Challenge Feb 28, 2010: Pop-Up Card

My first pop-up card............I have been working on this card for two weekends. It was a little tricky to figure out how to make the Tilda "pop-up". I didn't get it quite right because my card won't lay flat....but she looks great when I open the card. My Tilda and Edwin are colored with copics and embellished with SU! Crystal effects on the wings, the Star, and the ornaments. I finally figured out how to use my Tim Holtz tool with the white pads to antique my images - as you can see I loved it once I was able to lay down the ink nicely. I used Nestabilities on the inside along with Prima Flowers and MLYB Brads. The cuttlebug has been busy all weekend!
Cardstock: Stampin' Up

Magnolia Valentines Day Card

I'm thinking about doing one more card today for the "Just Magnolia" challenge blog.....but was stalled a bit when I saw the "prize". It is two Magnolia stamps which happen to be two that I received in my winter club stamps. FUN. I used those stampes to make this Valentine's Day card for my husband - pretty girly but I loved how it came out. I spent some time last weekend watching Suzanne Dean's videos on you tube on distress ink coloring with your copic markers. I didn't quite hit the mark compared to her images but I was happy with how mine came out. She has a four part video series that is really fantastic. I sat and colored along with her. The cardstock is a mix of Stampin' Up and Bazzill Basics. The flower and brad is from Stampin' Up. The DSP is Stampin' Up. Glitter Paper is from New England Scrapbook Company (LOVE THAT PLACE) and was stocked with the Bazzill so it may be from that company.

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #19: Clean and Simple

I loved this challenge for a brief moment......I could NOT get my imaged cardstock to stand up as a card so I had to modify slightly to add a backbone to the card. My Mo's image is one of my favorite's called "Makin' Cards" and colored with my Copics. I used Green Satin ribbon and a Martha Stewart punch to finish the card.
