This months color challenge at the Club Anime Blog is an assortment of Christmas colors. My colors are just a bit off, but this was the best I could come up with to match and still like the final product! I used papers from Bo Bunny's St Nick collection and Dotted cardstocks and Sandy is colored in to match.
Sandy is available over at InStyle Stamps. Isn't she absolutely adorable?!! I added a bit of Polar White Flower Soft to the fur on her hat. Ribbon is also by Bo Bunny. The sentiment is from the set "Merry Messages" from Stampendous.
My computer/printer connection has been acting up the last week or so and since I was running pretty last minute I kept the card simple, BUT I did manage to sneak in 2 cards! The next one isn't for the challenge but I was just in the mood to do something with the cute Kitty-Cat image!
Kitty-Cat is also available from InStyle Stamps. Mine is digi, so I blew it up quite a bit :) The sentiment is from a different Stampendous set, this one is from "Festive Fluffles". Papers for this card are from the Colorful Christmas collection by My Minds Eye.
Alrighty. My first Saturday with nothing planned in months. I have to get busy! Have a great weekend :) Thanks for stopping by, please don't forget to say hi! (And don't forget to start reading and following my new blog...click ---> HERE!)
I am stuck at home today with a sick little one. He came back from school not 2 hours after having left. Urgh. Not only am I not at work today, but I have to sneak off to do anything at home too. After watching Nickelodeon all morning he wants me to watch him play Xbox now. So much for productivity.
But I do have a card for you...More Tilda today! I got the privilege of coloring tons of new Magnolia images for Enchanted Cottage and making them into samples...so you will see a lot of Tilda! This is Tilda under Mistletoe. She is colored with copic markers and then I went back over the reds and her golden hair with Metallic rubons from Craf-T Products. They are meant to be rubbed-on but I colored with them using a blending stump. It ends up looking a lot like Twinkling H2Os without curling up the paper!
The background paper is also by Magnolia. This paper is simply gorgeous...really heavy-weight and textured. The sentiment is from a set called Merry Messages by Stampendous...I adore this font!! Ok, so thats about it. Have a great day and thanks for visiting! -Cyndi
Stamps: Tilda Under Mistletoe (Magnolia); Merry Messages (Stampendous)
Paper: gingham (Magnolia); white cs (Neenah); Kraft (Bazzill)
Hey to all my readers and visitors! Happy hump day! Some of you may have noticed that I started a Blogger blog as well and I am trying to slowly get it ready to do the big change. Cause hey, its FREE!!
So, in the meantime I will do my posts in both spots while I get all the little details ready. But, in the meantime. You can continue to follow me here at Typepad or you can go ahead and switch over to my new blog...The Scrappychick...and start following me there! I will try to remind you all again a few times to change your bookmark!
In the meantime, on to why you are actually here! This is Rooco Skate, one of the new winter images from Stampendous. I just adore their newest addition to the animal family at Stampendous! He is paired with a sentiment also by Stampendous. I got both of mine on cling rubber at Enchanted Cottage.
Rooco is colored with copics, of course...what else is there, right? I think my blending/coloring is getting way better! (I have been checking out more tutorials which have changed up the way I approach my coloring from how I was taught at certification.)
He is paired with the Eskimo Kisses paper line from Basic Grey and a bit of A Muse ribbon. All supplies are listed below.So, I am off to do a bit more Christmas shopping, wish me luck :) Have a great week and thanks for stopping by! -Cyndi
Supplies:Stamps: Rooco Skate, Skatin hi (Stampendous)
Paper: Eskimo Kisses pp (basic Grey); white cs (Neenah)
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We finally got most of the decorations up Sunday. Plus Grandma came to visit the kids and they loved that. Oh, and I forgot to tell you all that we had a baby this weekend...Rachael got to bring home the horrible whining electronic baby for "Life Skills". Geesh.
OK, on to the card for the day. You will probably be seeing a lot of Magnolias coming up. Our shipment of new Christmas images arrived at Enchanted Cottage last week :)
This is Silent Night Tilda. She was colored with copic markers, then cut out with LAbels 5 Nestabilties. Papers are from Magnolia. I used Polar white Flower Soft on the fuzz of her winter coat and at her feet for snow. Thought I would never like that stuff...but its really growing on me.
OK, thats it for tonight. Off to bed, I can feel a killer migraine coming on. -Cyndi
Stamps: Silent Night Tilda (Magnolia); Christmas Wishes (A Muse)
Paper: Kraft cs (Bazzill); white cs (Neenah); pattern (Magnolia)
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir; Ice Blue chalk cats eye (Clearsnap)
Friday morning and I am off to work in a few...but first, a bit of eye candy for you! This is Edwin (I think his actual name was Edwin in ski sweater ?) and he is perched atop the cutest ornament :) Both stamps are from Magnolia. The ornament was paper-pieced with paper from Bo Bunny. The top was colored with silver Smooch.
Edwin and his ornament are in front of a Labels 4 Nestabilites airbrushed with a red copic. Sentiment is by Stamping Bella. All other materials are from Bo Bunny. This was one of 3 cards in my first Magnolia/Copic class at Enchanted Cottage last month.
Well, enjoy your weekend! Thanks for visiting! -Cyndi
