It has to be cold somewhere

Good afternoon!

Yes, I do know it is cold–somewhere.  But, not here in Florida.  We’ve been in the 80’s and 90’s forever!  It is October and do  you think we would have had some relieve from the hot–noooooo not here.  We just get hurricanes (my family is fine, we only got some rain and a little wind from Hurricane Matthew).  I don’t want the really cold weather, but a little lower temps would be appreciated.  However, NO SNOW!  I don’t do snow.  It’s pretty to see in pictures and on TV (when it is somewhere other than here).  I just prefer to watch it from afar.  Just saying….

Anyway, on to today’s card.  This card is for my Christmas card stash.  I just loved the mice (Lantern Warmth) in this image.  But, then again I love the House Mouse stamps.  I made it a couple of weeks ago and I am sooooo pleased with how it came out.  I really suck at using the Copic greys and decided it was time to sit down and tackle them with this card.  Usually, it will take me many tries to get an image “just right” for me.  I nit pick my color choices and the techniques to death (I know, OCD!) and I expected the same for this image.  Color (pun intended-lol!) me surprised when it only took 2 tries!  It must have taken me 3-4 days to work on it.  I would work on it for a little while and then step away, and do the same a little while later.  It didn’t help I was battling horrible pain associated with Multiple Sclerosis.  But, I eventually got it done.  YIPPEEE!

This card design is very simple.  For some reason I’ve had a block associated with card designs, lately.  So, I stepped back and decided this would be a basic design using the largest die in the Sue Wilson Belgian Collection – Brussels set.  Since the lantern image reminds me of Christmas, the sentiment stamp It beginning to look a lot like Christmas seemed perfect.   I have had the Spellbinders Ornamental Tags Three for a couple of years and still hadn’t used it.  I just had to cut off the top portion of the die and was left with the pierced oval for the sentiment.  The stars and snow were achieved using the Quickie Glue Pen, Fun Stampers Journey Sparkle Dust glitter, and Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle Fascination glitter.

Unfortunately, I didn’t take the time to note down the Copic markers used (sorry).  I can tell you I used the cool greys for the lantern, some of the pale blues for the glass, yellows for the candle glow and the violets for the cape.  The mice were colored with E50, E51, E53, E93, E30, E31, E33 and E34.

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  I can foresee more use from this stamp.

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful and peaceful Sunday!

Hugs,

K

House Mouse Friendly Dreams

Hi all!

Another post today to share a Christmas card I finished this weekend.  I’m actually getting a little bit of an early start.  The stamp is Stampendous House-Mouse Friendly Dreams.  Isn’t it cute?  I used many elements on this card and I love how it came out.

Of course, I used my Sue Wilson dies and my Copic markers.  The image, sentiment and the Poinsettia striplets were popped up for dimension.

I am entering this card in the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

Make a Wish

This weekend was my dear hubby’s birthday.  Every year I try to make something different for his card and this year I kept it clean and simple  He loves the cards I make with the House Mouse stamps.  He wasn’t disappointed with this card.  He loved it!  The stamp I used is called Make A Wish 02.  I tried to find one to link to this post, but this stamp is retired and the only ones I found were on eBay and Easy.    This stamp is so happy and fun and I loved coloring it.  Who doesn’t like a cupcake!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and used the Copic Multiliner to accent the fur and around the eyes.  The Copic Multiliner is great because it is compatible with Copic Markers and do highlight specific areas of the image.   I also used the new Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Inks in Barely Nude and Fosty Mink.  These inks are very easy to work with and using them with the new Creative Expressions Mini Smoothies.  These new smoothies are so much easier to work with versus other blending sponges I have used in the past.

 

I am entering this card in the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is A Day Spent with Friends.

Happy Father’s Day

I know this is a little late in posting, but things have been a little hectic around my home.

This is a card I made for my son for Father’s Day. I used my Copic Markers to color the image. This time I concentrated on using the warm grey colors. I have never really worked with them, so lately I’ve been forcing myself to work them more into my images.

Fathers Day

The stamps I used is from the Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle Wild Cats set. This is the perfect stamp set for the men in your life.  I also played with the new Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Inks.  I love them!

This is the list of supplies I used.  Sorry I didn’t write down the exact Copic colors I used.

Trying to start early…..

 

 

Last year Christmas slammed up on me quick and sent me scrambling to make Christmas cards for everyone.  Believe me, this took the fun out of card making.  This year I am trying (keyword is TRYING) to start a little early.

So, in the spirit of starting early a couple of friends and I got together and worked on Christmas cards.  We will try and do this at least once a month, hopefully—maybe if the moon and stars align and all that good stuff.

Anyway, last week I worked on mine.  I’ve had this poinsettia image that I colored last year and did not use.  Don’t know why.  Probably because in the frenzy I could not decide what to do with it.  So, I tackled putting this image on a card.

Another House Mouse – Chamomile Nap

You will find I love House Mouse stamps.  When I say love-I mean I have a difficult time passing them up.  They are just so cute!

The one I have for you today is Chamomile Nap.  I thought it perfect for a friend’s birthday card.  A birthday should be a day of rest and napping.  Well, it should–but we know it rarely is.

This stamp is colored with Copic markers and I am very satisfied with the results.   I don’t remember the markers I used since this card was done months ago, but in the future I’ll try and make a note of the markers I use.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to scan and cut the stamp.  There would have been no way I could have hand cut this to look this nice.  The scan and cut feature on the Cameo is awesome!

The card itself is one I found on Sue Wilson’s blog and really loved the design and thought it perfect to go with the stamp.  However, for the life of me, I cannot find it on her blog to link it here.  I would love to be able to give credit where credit is due and link to the instructions, so if you know the page where the instructions—-please, please, please place the link in the comments so I can post it.

The dies used are Sue Wilson dies, Classic Adorned Rectangles and the Weaving dies.  The weaving die were really fun to play with.  Just cut out the dies and weave the smallest pieces together from each set.  It is a little tedious, but I liked the results.

Here is a break down of what I used.

I would love to hear your comments on what you think on this card!

Have a great day!  And, don’t forget to try and put a little crazy in it, too!  It keeps people on their toes!
