You’re Yeti-rrific

Good morning!

Oh my goodness…there is so much cuteness in the new release this month from C.C. Designs!!  This sweetie is from the Cutie Yeti Clear Stamp Set.

This adorable little Yeti is WAYYYY too cute for words!  This is my first Yeti I have colored and I must say he was so much fun!

You're Yet-rrific

I stamped this little cutie patootie on X-Press It Blending Card with C.C. Designs Black Olive Hybrid Ink and colored him with the following copic markers.

~Copics~
Grays:  W6/5/3/2/1/0/00/White gel pen  Cheeks:  RV21
Scarf:  B97/95/93/91/B000/White gel pen
Pom Poms:  C3/1/00/Stardust Stickles Glitter Glue

You're Yeti-rrific2

Once the glitter glue dried I cut him out using the coordinating Cutie Yet Outline Metal Dies.  All of the cardstock is from my stash.  The shaped dies are from Newton’s Nook.

CC Designs ~ Joy

Welcome everyone!

I have another project to share with you from CC Designs October new release.  This sweet little face all dressed up in her reindeer suit is just simply too cute to resist!!

This adorable stamp set is called ‘Christmas Cuties‘…and I actually colored them all!  I will use the rest of them for Christmas tags for my grandchildren.

Joy

I stamped this sweetie on X-Press It Blending and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~

Hair:  E57/55/53/30

Costume:  E33/31/53/30

Joy2

I used the coordinating ‘Christmas Cuties Outline Dies‘ to cut out the little reindeer, and cut out the J and the Y with the ‘Olive You Alphabet & Number Dies‘.  The dies used behind her are from La-La Land Crafts.

The thin strip of red is just cardstock cut 1/8 inch wide and glued to the background.  I added foam tape behind the image and the letters for dimension…and of course a little red bling to the top to finish the card.

Hello everyone!

We are on day 2 of Previews for the OCTOBER Release at C.C. Designs.  This month it’s all about Christmas …and it’s cuteness overload!! The release will be available for purchase this Thursday at 12pm CST.

I think your “soda” awesome

Good morning!

I am back today with another retro themed card featuring ‘Car Hop Clara‘ and the ‘Burger and Soda Die‘ from C.C. Designs Stamps.  This was such a fun set to work with!

I had so much fun creating the burger for the sign!  I cut all the pieces out using X-Press It Blending Card so I could color them to look like an actual burger.  Once all the pieces were colored and assembled I tackled the hard part of figuring out where to put the completed burger.  I finally decided on a wall sign for the diner Miss Clara works in…lol.

I used the Quad Collage Die to cut out the sentiment and finished the card with a few coordinating enamel dots from the store.

C.C. Designs ~ You can do anything!

Good morning everyone!

Oh my goodness…I was SO excited to work with ‘Rosie Riveter‘ from the September New Release from C.C. Designs.   I immediately thought of war planes and was on a mad hunt for paper to make my idea work.

Rosie is such an iconic part of World War II.  The women had to help out and work in a variety of positions that were previously closed to them.  The aviation industry saw the greatest increase in female workers during our country’s time of need.

Rosie the Riveter2

I printed Rosie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following copic markers:

~Copics~
Skin:  E11/00/000/0000-R20/30  Eyes:  BG72/70  Lips:  E04-R32/30
Pants:  B97/95/93/91-YR23/Y15/Y11
Bandana:  R46/27/24 – white gel pen
Shirt, Socks, and Rag:  N2/1/0
Shoes:  N8/5/4/3

Rosie the Riveter1

I wasn’t originally going to fussy cut her out, but one of my markers wasn’t playing nice and blobbed on my image.  I had to take a deep breath and figure out how to save her as I only had her shoes left to color.  So…my plans changed and I am so pleased with how she turned out.  I call that a happy accident.  The airplanes are all fussy cut.

The paper is from a digi file I purchased on Etsy found here.  The dies are from Momma Elephant and La-La Land Crafts.
