Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today with our July Challenge!!!

Our new challenge is sure to please you this month!!  Our challenge this month is Clean and Simple (CAS)!!  I love this style of card making.  CAS cards have a lot of white space and are east to create.

Check out the card I created for this challenge:

Hello Friend (a2z)

Here is how I create this card:

1. I used Stampin’ Up! retired Polka Dot embossing folder to embossed my card base.

2. I used My Favorite Thing Die-namics Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die to cut a panel for my focal point.

3. I stamped my images from Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower Stamp and Cut using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink because I was going to color my images with Copic Markers G07, Y32. Y35, Y38, R35, E25, Y06

4. I die cut the flower using the die from the set and adhered it to the steam of the flower with foam tape.

5. To finish off my card I rounded the corners of my card base using the We R Memory Corner Chomper Tool.

Nice Clean and Simple!!  Now its your turn!!

Not A Christmas Stamp 2…

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our November Challenge!!

This month’s theme is Christmas Images using Non Christmas Stamps!! This was a really fun technique. I had to really shop my stash to see what stamps I have that I could use for this.

This is my second time attempting this technique and I really had a lot more fun with it this time around.

Take a look at my card:

Be Joyful

I used a stamp set this is so far from Christmas you wouldn’t believe.

Here is the stamp set that I used to create this card:

Lifes JourneyI use the stamp that says “Enjoy the Journey”.  That circle image would be perfect for an ornament.

To achieve this affect, I just inked the circle and not the sentiment.  I did that three times to create the three ornaments.

I used my Copic markers and colored them in. I love purple and green for Christmas colors.

So what do you think?  I think you should try this technique for a chance to win a great prize.

We are delighted to be sponsored this month by The Artistic Stamper.


The Artistic Stamper is a shop full to bursting with fabulous stamps, stash and ideas galore!

The prize this month is this set of stamps.


I love these border stamps!!

PLUS:The Design Team will have a look at all your gorgeous work, and choose their Top Three….. and the overall Winner will get published in Craft Stamper magazine! Yes, the winning entry will appear in the UK’s number one stamping magazine! AND: The Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for an upcoming challenge!

So, a fab set of stamps, publication AND a guest DT slot? What are you waiting for?! Please join us this month.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Cute! Who, Me?

Hello everyone! I’m back today after all of the great news I had to share this week.  Back to work for me!!

I’m here today with the Muse Challenge #77.  The Muse this week is Marion Vagg.  Her card this week is so cute and simple.

Take a look at Marion Vagg Card:

I love her owl!  I do not own an owl stamp set, I look high and low, and my stash doesn’t contain an owl.  I couldn’t believe that.  I must get one.

So I went for my brand new stamp the Dragon from Sweet Stamp Shop.

Take a look:

Cute Dragon

Yes, isn’t this dragon the cutest little monster you ever saw!

Can you believe I colored him.  Yes, I took out my Copic Markers and sat and colored.  I need to do that more often.  It was so relaxing.  I need more colors too. I used BG49, Y19 and E37.

I colored my Stampin’ Up! rhinestones with a Copic Marker, Y19.  I wanted to use black enamel dots but ran out of them and I’m glad I did.  I think the yellow color looks so much better since its the same color of the dragons belly.

I thought I was done then, but realized I wanted to add and black frame around my dragon.  So I used my Copic Multi-Liner to create the boarder.

I wanted my card to be as CAS as possible so, I keep everything to the minimal.

What do you think?  I think my little dragon came out so cute!  Yes, you!!

I’m back again with another card today.  This time it’s for CASology week 91 and the cue word is NOTE.

I thought long and hard on what type of card to make and I decided to pull out my stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.  I used the Quinn’s Capital ABCs die and the Science of Love stamp set and die.  I had fun creating this card.  It took me a couple of trial and errors before I settled on my card.

Take a look:


I wanted to create a card that would be different then expected.  I love white on white, its classy and clean.  I die cut the word note out of my mask layer.  Then colored my notebook with my Copic markers and adhere it next to the word cue word, note!  Kreative, I must say.

I used Copic marker E15 and R46

Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 7 Creative Coloring

I’m so excited about today’s class because we learned how to do some creative coloring.  I love coloring because it is so easy to do and it reminds me of my childhood.  Back then we were not worried about perfection and was happy with what our finally project looked like even if we went outside the lines!!!

The card that I made is sooooo cute!!!  Kristin Werner taught us how to do simple Copic coloring.  I’ve grown to love Copic coloring but have been afraid to use them.  I’m not sure why, they won’t bit.  Sorry I digress, back to today’s card.

Take a look for yourself:

Smile Die Cut

Doesn’t this card make you want to smile and keep smiling.  Anyone who gets this card will have a brighter day.  I will definitely will use my Copic markers to create more cards like this.  The colors I used for my card are RV66,BV17, YR16, BG49 and YR23.

Please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my Copic Colored “Smile”!
