Hi

Hello and welcome everyone!

Today I am sharing my inspiration for the NEW Color Challenge at Ink n’Splatter Stamps.

My card today features one of the super adorable bears from the Beary Whishes Pairables Stamp Set.

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

~Copics~
Bear: E55, E33, E31, E30, E50
Pot: BG49, BG15, BG23, BG11, BG10
Greens: YG17, YG03, YG01
Pinks: RV14, RV13, RV11, RV21
White Gel Pen


I bought this large font die a while ago and thought this image would fit perfectly with it. I couldn’t resist making it into a shaker card with lots of pretty sparkles.

To help fill some of the white space I die cut lots of little flowers and added dimension to the center of the flowers with sparkly bits.

HUGS for my sweetheart

Hello everyone!

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner?

This darling little Panda from Ink n’Splatter’s Loveable Panda Stamp Set was busy collecting beautiful flowers for her sweetie.


I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers and colored pencils.

~Copics and Prismacolor Pencils~

Dark Gray: W8, W6, W5, W4, W3, W1 – Pencils: 1067, 1065, 1063, 1061, 938

White Gel Pen


After I had her all colored, I cut her out with the coordinating Loveable Pandas Die Set and then set her aside to work on my card.


The gorgeous dies I used in my design are from Papertrey Ink. I started by stamping the word HUGS from the Lots of Hugs Stamp Set and then used the coordinating Lots of Hugs Die to cut it out. I cut the die cut in half to give room for the cute little Panda to be in the center of the card. The two white layers are from the Love to Layer: Rectangle Dies.

Dear Santa

Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sharing a this adorably sweet image from All Dressed Up Stamps called Santa Post. She finished her wish list for Santa and is mailing it to Santa in hopes her wishes come true.

I had all my Christmas cards done and mailed out for this year, but decided I should maybe start super early for next years cards..wink wink!

I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~

I used a minimal print paper and added a scalloped die cut frame around her. Once the frame was glued to the image I then attached it to the card base with and extra layer of thick card stock in between.

Pretty Presents

Hi friends!

Goodness..it’s been a while since I’ve created a post! Been busy taking care of myself for a little while.

My card today showcases this little cutie from Sweet November Stamps called Christmas Pixie Evie. What a sweet image!

Honestly they all are, so I bought all of them from the November Vault release.

This darling pixie was printed on X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

Reds: R89, R46, R29, R27, R24
Grays: W3, W1, W0 and C3, C1, C0 (Jingle Bells)
White Gel Pen

I added an embossed layer and lots of die cuts for added dimension. I die cut the presents twice, one out of red and one out of white paper. After I decided what color the base of each present was going to be, I then cut out the bow part of the opposite color and glued it on top of the base. I added clear Wink of Stella to several of the die cut pieces to add some shimmer.
