Are You Rolling With It?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search for October!!  I figured why not throw myself in the mix!!

I’m also entering the Paper Smooches Sparks: Anything Goes.


Sometime this week I received Paper Smooches Spiffy Scooters Stamp set and decided that I would use that stamp set to create a new card.   I was waiting for my new Copic markers to come in the mail so that I can practice my coloring.

Guess what!!  My Copic Markers arrived this morning!!  Yayyy!! I’m so excited.  Practicing here I come. Now I have 108 markers.

So without further a due here is my card:

Roll With It

I had a lot of fun coloring this little cute scooter.  It challenge me a bit.  I wanted to make sure I was able to do some blending.

The Copic colors I used were:

YR04, YR07 – the flame

B00, B02 – the scooter body

100 – the hub caps, seat, bottom of the muffler

Y21 – the wheel covers, head light

C3, C5 – the headlight cover, the handlebar, top light cover, tailpipe, back-light cover

R35 – backlight

T0, T2 – wheels, shadow

So what do you think of my coloring?  Please let me know.

Now here is another card that I want to submit for this search:

Just a Note (grapes)

I created this card a couple of days ago.  If you want to know how I created this card you can check out that blog post here.

I didn’t use Copic’s to color these grapes I used Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities.

I Love You Birdie!!

Hello everyone!! I’m here with a brand new stamp company based in Germany called Create A Smile.  They have fun designs, cute images and punny sentiments that you will love.


Over on their Create a Smile blog, they are having a Guest Designer Search for their September Release!!

How exciting is that!!  When I saw that, I knew I would love to be Guest Designer for them.  So I created a project with their free digi birdie to be included in the running!

Take a look at my card:

I Love You Birdie

When I saw this little birdie on their blog, I fell in love with him.  He is the cutest bird I’ve seen.  His big eyes pulled me in.

I used Copic marker Y13 and Y19 to color him in.

I fussy cut him out because I wanted him to pop him off of my card.

I created my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

I stamped my “I Love You” sentiment from Papertrey Ink Building Blocks stamp set in Versafine Black Ink. I added foam adhesive to the back of my birdie and adhered him to the tag.

I used my white gel pen to create eyes on my birdie.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag and add some retired So Saffron ribbon and Tempting Turquoise bakers twine.

For my card base, I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil to create a subtle background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and my mini distress blending tool on a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added foam adhesive behind my tag and WaLa, I was done.

So what do you think?  Will my card win over anyone’s heart?  I hope so!!

Let me know what you think below.
