The Card Concept #19

Hi stampers. It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept. Fall in the air around here and I'm so happy. I love the crispy morning air and all of the beautful colors...oh and football :)

Here is my card.

I don't think I could have gotten anymore CAS than this. I simply stamped my three leaves and added the sentiment. Now if my Christmas card were only this easy...haha.

Here is the challenge:
Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to some beautiful fall colors on your cards.

One Image Two Cards

Happy Friday to all of you. I thought I would pop in and share a couple of cards I made using one of the new Seasons Change images from Saturated Canary. I'm so in love with Krista's new images and the sketchy look she gave them.

Here are my cards:

I wasn't sure if the braid in her hair was supposed to be her hair, or a headband. I opted for the headband and really like it. 

I did color up the winter image a couple of days ago...while camping :) but I haven't had a chance to make it into a card yet. Maybe I can get to that watch for it. I usually list my Copic colors used, but I have lost the sticky notes with the sorry. If I find them I'll update the post. 

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and have a very Blessed day.

I'll Try That Again

In my last post I showed you a card I made using this technique I found at Sending You A Little Smile. Again, I will say view  her blog at your own risk..haha. So after I did the baby card I thought I would give it another try, but with flowers this time using Countryside Bouquet from Power Poppy. This is a digital image, but they do have rubber stamps as well.

Here is my card:

Again, it's hard to see the layers in this first picture.

Here you can see them better. I found these so much easier to do than the baby. There weren't so many layers on top of layers. There are a couple of flowers that overlap, but for the most part they don't.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'll Try That

Okay, so I'm always on the look out for new techniques and ideas to add to my card making. While in Pinterest Land..oh you know, that place that will eat up a couple of hours of your day in no time...I found something I wanted to try so I followed the link to Sending You A Little Smile.  I'll just say view at your own risk. You just may want to give this a try like I did.

Here is my card:

I decided for my first try at this I would use an image that Mariska did so I could pretty much copy what she did. I used Wee One from WeeStamps. Boy am I glad I did that. There is no way I would have figured this out on my own. It's hard to see from this picture, but there is a lot of layers and a lot of fussy cutting going on here.

You can see it better in this picture. Some of the pieces are cut out and then layered on top of the others. Each piece that you cut out is edged with a black marker. Then you use a stylist tool to add a little bit of a bow to each piece. Then using this special glue and a syringe you start to attach the layers. The end result is so amazing. I loved the process, and actually found it kind of relaxing, but I don't think I would do this on a regular bases. It look me just over 4 hours to complete this one card...crazy I know!

Thanks for stopping by.

No One Like You

There is no better way to spend a day off than crafting. I've been doing a lot of practice with my Copics and colored up this sweet image this morning.

I just love how her dress turned out. I'm getting the hang of pleats..finally. Thanks to Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her amazing classes. Well off to practice some more.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Card Concept #17

Hi stampers. It's time for a new two week challenge at The Card Concept. This time we have a great photo for you to get your inspiration from.

Here is my card.

I love doing white on white with a bold focal point. I don't think you can get much easier than this.

The challenge:

Being a CAS designer I fell in love with this image. I mean come on...look at all of that beautiful white. Granted there is no way I would ever think of having this much white in my house. I can see the wet dog feet on this already.

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what all of you create using this inspiration photo.

The Card Concept #15

Can you believe it's already time for a new challenge at The Card Concept? For the next two week's we are giving you a super fun color combo to play with. These are a couple of my all time favorites too.

Here is my card:

I started by stamping the flower off to the side. Then I stamped the flower and the leaves on a piece of scrap and cut them out. To give the flower a little extra pop I attached it to the card using my Dots. After attaching the leaves I gently pulled up the edges. Super easy and adds so much to the card.

The challenge:

As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you can find the time to play along. Remember you have two weeks :)

Wishing You Well

Today I decided to mix it up and color some flowers. One of my daughter's co-workers is leaving and she asked me to make a card.

This digital image from Power Poppy is simply stunning. I loved coloring this up and will be doing a lot more of them I'm sure.

Here is a close up for you.

Copics used:

Thank you for stopping by.

A Mermaid Birthday

Happy Saturday. It's been a little on the warm side here so we've been staying inside. You know what that means...craft time:) Today I found out my daughter and son-in-law are going to a birthday party tomorrow for his little cousin who will be turning 6. I offered to make the card for them.

This is Shelly from Wee Stamps. This was my first attempt at a mermaid and she was really fun to color up. Sorry for the yellowish color of the picture. I didn't want to deal with setting up my photo tent for one picture.

For My Daughter

Hi everyone. I thought I would stop in and share a sweet little card I made for my daughter this morning. I was coloring this digital image from Wee Stamps up last night, and I sent a picture of what I was working on to her phone. She thought it was just the cutest thing ever...her words:) and said it would be pretty in yellow and purple. So, after I finished the one I was working was peach and teal I starting right in on this on. This image is perfect for us, because we have always called her bug. No idea where it came from, but it stuck.

Copics used:
Skin: E21, E51, E000 & E0000
Hair: E44, E43, E42 & E41
Dress & Shell: V99, V95, V93 & V91
