Winter Wonderland

 Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today I have my card for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge to share :) and I absolutely LOVE this weeks sketch. 
For my image I used CottageCutz Reindeer & Tree Ornament, which I cut out using white card stock, and then colored using copic markers in G28(for trre), E31,E37,E57(Reindeer), BG000 for the swirls, but then I covered them up using polar white flower soft. LOVE the look of the ornament here.
For the branches I used a punch, and for the circles I used spellbinders. Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is the satin, and velvet. Dp is from American Crafts "Pink Paislee line" SNOW VILLAGE! I have to say I LOVE this Christmas Collection!!! Talk about beautiful design paper, it has so many to choose from, and the deer is one of my favorites :)

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Beautiful Poinsettia & Holly/Video Tutorial

Hello everyone,
Just had to do another card for Wednesdays sketch challenge on SCS, and do it without flipping the design...hehehe

 For my card I used the Beautiful Poinsettia CottageCutz Christmas die, and colored with copics  R37, R39 , E08, YG03 , YG95. I added some gold gala glitz to the center to finish up the poinsettia. 
The holly was colored using the YG copics listed above.
Design paper is Snow Village from Pink Paislee. LOVE this collection, its absolutely beautiful!!! Its an older collection from 2013 but still LOVE it!

 For my sentiment I stamped it in memento black ink, and then distressed the tag using brushed corduroy and barn door.
Ribbon is from my stash, its GOLD and I hardly ever use it, but when I put it up to this card, I knew it was perfect to complete this one.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!

Next for my image I stamped Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3329 Pumpkin/Autumn Vines precut set in Memento Black ink, and then colored the pumpkins with Copics colors-YR68,YR16,YR09, and E57 for the stem. Then I added some glue around the pumpkins to add Art Glitter in color 57 Nutmeg. LOVE this color and LOVE the look it gives to the pumpkins.
Greenery is from the Scrapping Cottage, its the CottageCutz Fancy Daisy Vine. I thought it would go perfect with the pumpkins.
Ribbon I used as the last layer in the Sketch. Its from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and so is the Jute I used through my button.

Fun for FALL

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to all!
My card for today was designed for Splitcoaststampers TLC challenge to use watercolor or any medium to color your diecuts with.

For my card I chose to use some older CottageCutz dies to create a FALL themed card. I love fall too, and just had to make something fun for fall...hehehe So I used the CottageCutz Mini HedgeHog, Filigree Leaf Pumpkin, and Mini Leafs all from the Scrapping Cottage.

While in California for a week, I came upon these paints and thought they would be perfect for paper crafting. So I used them and some water to color my CottageCutz leaves. I did mix them to give them a different look than just coloring one color. Love the look. Paints used- Lumiere Citrene , NE OPAQUE Yellow , and Red  

Also used some design paper that I bought at the warehouse sale this past summer. I got these packs of 25 sheets each for 1.20 each pack of design paper. Mind you they are all the same pattern, but what an awesome price so I bought tons of packs, and these were among those packs.

Ribbon is gingham, and the buttons are vintage and came from an estate along with the paints. I have listed the CottageCutz dies used below, and linked them to the store for easy finding.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
