A Monday Morning Perk Up!

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Ink, Cup of Love, Coffee
Though I prefer my caffeine cold and fizzy, some folks need their hot coffee.  There's a blog hop that even celebrates this addiction.  You'll want to check out the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, going on right now.  A Jillian Vance Design is a Super Sponsor of the hop. 

If you want to read about this card I made for the hop, I invite you to visit the AJVD blog today for all the deets.

Make it a great Monday everyone!

Betty Belfrey

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Halloween, witch, Copic markers
Sometimes, I really like a card I've made.  This is one of those times.  SQUEEE!!!

It's Tiddly Tuesday and there's a new challenge on the Challenge Blog.  The challenge is "Anything Goes". 

As you know, I do enjoy making Halloween cards, so I just had to use the Tiddly Inks digital image of "Betty Belfrey".  I printed her onto X-Press It cardstock, as well as printed her onto masking film.  I masked her, and then had some fun sponging a moon with Adirondack Sunshine Yellow and the rest of the sky with Distress Ink Wild Honey and Adirondack Sunset Orange. I misted just a little bit of water onto the paper to activate the dye inks a bit.  I stamped the "Sleepy Hollow Tree" image from Rubbernecker Stamps with Versafine Onyx Black ink, along with the sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design.  Then, I carefully removed my masked and colored Betty Belfrey with Copic markers. 

I might not make a card for days.  Because I might just look at this one for a good long time, LOL.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  And do play along with the Anything Goes challenge.

Grateful Heart

AJVD, Kecia Waters, leaves, fall, sponging, Distress Ink
First Thanksgiving card of the season, using the wonderful Leaves and Petals Die Set from A Jillian Vance Design.  I cut the leaves out of watercolor paper and then had fun sponging various dye inks to achieve the gorgeous fall colors that autumn brings. 

You can read all about this card on the AJVD blog today!

Back again tomorrow with a wicked card for Tiddly Tuesday.  You don't want to miss it.

Make it a great Monday, if that's even possible.

Spell on Ya

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Halloween, witch
It's another Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog.  For my contribution, I decided to have some fun coloring the adorable digital image of "Spell on Ya". 

You know the drill...X-Press It cardstock, Copic markers, some shading with Prismacolor pencils. 

The sentiment is from a little miniature dollar stamp from Michael's, from many, many seasons ago.  The strip of patterned paper along the side of the card is from K&Company.

Make sure you visit the challenge blog.  The design team knocks it out of the park with each and every creation.

Colorful Posies

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, posies
More energy to color this week for A Jillian Vance Design.  I told you last week I was envisioning a card with lots of posies of bright colors.  This week, I can deliver this vision.

This card was made with the "Pretty Posies Stamp and Die Combo" from A Jillian Vance Design.  There's some Copic action on this, along with some Prismacolor shading.

I truly think this card is the result of watching numerous Alisha Burke videos.  Who is AMAZING, by the way. 

Have a fantastic week ahead.  Here's to good health.

Spooky Pup

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Halloween, puppy, Howl-o-ween
It's another Tiddly Tuesday!  (Just where did that three day weekend go?). 

Over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog, we have a sketch challenge.  You know I struggle with sketches, and with this card it was no different.  The funky background was a scrap from playing around with Pan Pastels six months ago using a Penny Black background stamp.  The strip of patterned paper is from K&Company.

But, what takes center stage on this card is the adorable digital image from Tiddly Inks called "Spooky Pup".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Sure hope you can join us for the sketch challenge.  Show me how it's done.  I know YOU can.

Pretty Orange Posy

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, posy
It's the last official day of summer.  Might as well send it off with a beautiful orange posy from A Jillian Vance Design.

This card was made with the new set Pretty Posies Stamp and Die Combo.  I have this vision of making a similar card with some more posies.  Some yellows, some pinks, some lavendar.  But, we are not even to fall yet, and I feel myself getting congested and sick, so I took it easy and made this very CAS.  Some other time, I promise.

Want to read about this card some more.  It is featured today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog

Cough.  Cough.  Cough.  GRRRRR!!!!
