Sausage Dog

Urban Stamps, Kecia Waters, dachshund, Copic markers

Just playing around with a stamp I bought earlier in the year off Etsy.  It is called "Sausage Dog" and was made by Urban Stamps. 

I stamped the dachshund image with Marvy Black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I created a mask with masking film and sponged Mama Elephant Ocean pigment ink.  I made a mistake on the ground, so I cut around the bottom half of the dachshund, and used a strip of patterned paper for the ground.

The sentiment seemed perfect.  It is from Great Impressions and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Got a little Valentine-ish by stamping three little hearts from Paper Smooches.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Speaking of Etsy...if I can get my act together again, I plan on dusting off my Etsy shop and trying to sell some of my cards.

Analogous Hearts

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, hearts, wryn
It's so fun just to sit back and color.  Love having some time off. 

This card is made with a digital image from Tiddly Inks called "Heartfelt Love".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.

The sentiment is from an old Close To My Heart set.  Seemed perfect, so I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black.

This card is a result of playing around with analogous colors for a Splitcoast Challenge.  I kinda like the result. 

Thanks for visiting my blog this Monday!  I sure do appreciate the time you take out of your day to look at the cards I make.

Bright Yellow Flowers

Inkadinkado, Kecia Waters, yellow flowers, thank you card
Flowers?  December 26?  Why not?!  The weather around here has been incredibly warm.  It feels like April.

This image is from Inkadinkado.  I colored with Derwent Inktense pencils a couple of years ago, when I just got them.  I came across the colored image accidently as I was going through some papers in my stamp room.  Seemed like it was finally time to put it on a card.

Sentiment is a die from Paper Smooches.  Rectangle and circle stitched dies are from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today.  I hope these flowers brightened your day.

Holiday Pup

Some Odd Girl, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dachshund, Christmas

Sloopy needed a card.  She seemed pleased with the outcome.

This adorable image called "Holiday Pup" is a digital image from Some Odd Girl.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Some Glossy Accents highlight the ornaments on the antlers.

Fleas Navidad!

Because of the Peanuts Postage Stamps

Kecia Waters, Christmas, Memory Box, Stampabilities
When I heard that the post office was going to make the Peanuts gang a part of their Christmas stamps release, I knew it was a sign to make a Peanuts Christmas card this year.

This is my official 2015 Christmas card.  It was a quick design, which was a bonus.  The stamp is from Stampabilities.  The sentiment die is from Memory Box.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog this Christmas.  May your heart be filled with love today.

Christmas Greetings from Santa

Paper Smooches, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Santa, Christmas
This guy is coming to visit.  Hope he brings you everything your heart desires.

The images and sentiment are from Paper Smooches.  The Santa from the set "Santa Paws" was stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut around the image. 

On a white cardstock panel, I sponged some gorgeous Mama Elephant Mojito pigment ink for the sky by doing a little masking.  I stamped three presents, also from Santa Paws, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the snow ground. Colored also with Copic markerss.  I added some Crystal Stickles to the presents, as well some Glossy Accents.  Santa's spectacles also have Glossy Accents on the lens.

The sentiment is a die cut from Paper Smooches.

Fun card.  Have a fun holiday.  Merry Christmas!

Ginger Girl

Penny Black, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Christmas, Gingerbread
I'm hoping to eat a gingerbread boy or girl this holiday season.  Yummy!

This card features an older image from Penny black called Ginger Girl.  I stamped it onto X-Press It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper from The Paper Studio and paperpieced the dress.  I used a red Viva Pearl pen to color the hearts.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  A couple of enamel dots puts the finishing touches on this card.

Stained Glass Candles

Kecia Waters, Copic markers, stained glass, UTEE
Here's a card I made using the A Jillian Vance Design die "Grandpa's Glass Candles"

I used the die to cut a black outline with black cardstock. I ran this through my Xyron and placed onto a card panel of white cardstock. Then using the same die, I cut white X-Press It cardstock.

I colored each piece of the white with Copic markers, and pieced together the scene like a puzzle using the black frame.

Once complete, I covered the put-together image with Versamark Watermark and covered with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I applied heat with a heat gun. This step was repeated three times to get the thickness.

I placed my finished "stained glass" onto a white card panel.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
