Thanks SNOW Much

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, snowman, thanks SNOW much
Brrrrr....it's cold!  How many days until spring?  Given the weather outside, a snowman on a card is still very current and acceptable.

This is a thank you card made with the Frosty Stamp and Die Collection from A Jillian Vance Design.  You can read all about this card today on the AJVD blog.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  Stay warm!

A Helping Hand

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Valentine, dog
Just one more day until Sassy Cheryl's has all of these fabulous new digital images in her shop.

Today, I bring to you the fourth and final image.  It is called "A Helping Hand".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The side strip of patterned paper was simply a scrap I have been hoarding.  The heart was cut from a punch from this same scrap.  The sentiment is from an old There She Goes stamp set.  I thought it was appropriate to get out the Baker's Twine on this card since it looks like something wonderful is about to be whipped up.

And there you have it.  It has been a blast getting to show you the January release for Sassy Cheryl's.  Remember, it goes live tomorrow morning at 6:00 eastern.  This release will satisfy all of you Valentine's Day cardmaking needs, don't you think?!

Forget Me Not and some Mischieveous Mice

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Valentine
Hello again!  And welcome to Day 2 of the January release from Sassy Cheryl's

Today, I get to share two more digital images from the release. 

The card above features the digital image of "Forget Me Not".  It will be available at 6:00 AM Eastern on Sunday, January 7.  This particular image was so much fun to color, especially that tree.  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  The die "you" is from Taylored Expressions and "are loved" is from Simon Says Stamp.  The heart is a punch.

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, mice, coffee, Copic markers
The next new image featured on the above card is called "Mischievous Mice".  Appropriate name, huh?  I printed the darling image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment and the two coffee beans are from A Jillian Vance Design.

Tomorrow, I'll have one more card to share from the January release.  Here's a sneak peek....

Share and Share Alike

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers
Get ready!  Sassy Cheryl's is releasing four new digital images.  They are so sweet and adorable.  You will want them all.

I am honored to share the first one with you.  It is called "Share and Share Alike".  It will be available for purchase at 6:00 AM Eastern on Sunday, January 7th. 

To make this card, I printed the image of "Share and Share Alike" onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from an old There She Goes stamp set and was stamped with Marvy Black dye ink.  I kept it rather CAS and just adhered the image panel to some kraft cardstock.  Sort of a vintage feel, if you will.

I'll be back again tomorrow with two more images from the release.  In the meantime, here's a tease for one of them...

Best Chapter of My Life

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, reading, books, Valentine's Day, Copic markers
We're back!  The Tiddly Inks Design Team got some rest and relaxation, but now we are ready to make 2018 a great year.

Our first challenge is an "Anything Goes" challenge.  You know, we got to ease back into things.  We hope you join us.  All of the details are over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

I decided to feature the adorable Tiddly Inks digital image "Sweet Dreams Wryn".  Doesn't she look all warm and cozy?  With this cold weather, I'm thinking she has the right idea.  I printed the image onto X-Press it cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I wanted this card to work for Valentine's Day.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  I hope you come back for more visits during 2018.  I do appreciate your time and comments very much.

Adornments

Penny Black, Kecia Waters, Distress Inks, watercoloring, Christmas ornaments
I'm LOVING this brushstrokes stamp by Penny Black.  It is called "Adornments".  It found its way into my shopping card during the Black Friday sales last month.

I put the stamp into my Misti, applied the Distress Inks of Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint and stamped onto Canson Watercolor paper. I added water with a brush to move the color around.  I stamped the tops of the ornaments with Versafine Onyx Black and watercolored with Distress Ink Watered Wood.  Distress Inks Watered Wood and Hickory Smoke proved the shadow.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from A Jillian Vance Design.  Using a Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen I brushed lightly over the ornaments for a slight shimmer.

LOVE!!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!! this stamp!  Or do I love the color of these ornaments?  Or both?

Cactus Valentine

Paper Smooches, Kecia Waters, sponging, cactus, die
So, isn't fun to make cards for fun.   That's what this one is.  A for fun card.  I've had this die from Paper Smooches for quite sometime and today I finally got to play with it. 

Simple die-cutting and sponging.  Some details to the cactus were added with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto kraft cardstock. 

A Valentine added to the stash days before Christmas.  That's impressive, no?
