Hello Winter!

Merry Christmas To All Of You! I hope you all can enjoy merry and peaceful Christmas holidays with your family and friends! <3 Now that the busy time comes to an end,  I'm finally feeling like being creative again. My creative mojo was hiding somewhere (probably behind the Christmas tree) for the last two weeks. I started several creative projects and they all went in the trash bin *sigh*.  But not so much now anymore! :-)  Here is a little card I made using the adorable 'Favorite Flake' clear set by Deb Davis   available at  Whimsy Stamps .  I stamped the girl from the  'Favorite Flake'   set onto Hammermill 100lb Color Copy Cover Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is my favorite cardstock for coloring with Copics. I prefer the 100lb over the 80lb because I like the more sturdy feel of it especially when fussy cutting my images. I colored the image with Copics (see list below) and fussy cut around it.  On a white cardstock panel I added s

Fairy Christmas Wishes

Hello Everyone! My creation today shows one of the super cute Marina Fedotova fairies available at Whimsy Stamps in red rubber. She is called Anna the Fairy . This card was published in the Making Cards magazine November 2018 issue, including instructions on how to make this card, in which Whimsy Stamps had a special feature.  I wont be sharing any details this time on how I made this card to not infringe with any of the magazines copyrights/rules. But I can tell you that I used distress markers to color this cutie as well as the sentiment is from the You're my Jolly sentiment set also available in the store. I also used different Whimsy dies available in the store. I have listed all Whimsy products I used below with direct links to the Whimsy store.

Watercolored & Die Cut Poinsettia Christmas Card

Hello everyone! It's been a while for me to post - wow over a month - but I took a break to be with family. Now that everyone is home again :-( I slowly get back on track. The card I want to share today has a beautiful poinsettia as focal point. I die cut the flower with the Whimsy Build a Poinsettia die  . I die cut the poinsettia from watercolor paper and colored the pieces with watercolors before assembling. I also drew a few poinsettia leaves directly on the background panel. The golden shimmer background was made by adding gold glimmer spray to a slightly wet paper. I sprayed it on as well as added the gold glimmer liquid with the spray applicator directly to the paper for a more drastic effect. The sentiment is from the The Nutcracker clear set. I stamped with Versamark ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. For a finishing touch on the flower I've added a thin layer Nuvo Crystal Drops Gold Coast to some of the the poi
