Sweet Bells.

I saw they were holding a guest designer call on Elisabeth Bell's Digi Bell team. Have to get the artwork up by 6 AZ time today. Now, that I have a printer that will print out digi images, and allow me to color them with copics, I had to throw my name in in the hat. She's one of my favorite stamp illustrators. So, here's my creation for the call. They provided two sketches to try, and you can use any Elisabeth Bell image. Crossing fingers! I saw some fab cards over on the site.

Supplies: copics, nesties, TAC Emma pattern paper, SU cardstock and ink, Making Memories felt flowers, primas, stickles, dew drops.

Flavor Of Fall TAC Blog Hop.

Joined in another TAC blog hop today. It's fall focused. Fall is by far my favorite season. I love the colors changing, and the cool crisp air. I grabbed out a stamp set by Mabelle R called Fall Harvest, that I hadn't inked up yet. I'm such a collector sometimes! This set is perfect for fall! I paper pieced my cutie, and popped out her flower. She's colored with copics, and topped off with stickles. My paper choice was Penelope SWIC. The clothes are paper pieced from a tag that comes with the set of papers. My sentiment is from a set called Laugh Lines. My ribbon is from Reese ribbon pack, and I used tan scrappers floss.
My sketch is Sketch 126 on Friday Sketchers.

Party Time Tuesday #17.

It's another open challenge at Party Time Tuesdays! You all really seem to love those! Just make sure you put your birthday sentiment on the front of you card! Swing by the PTT blog to see what the other designers created today, check out the prize that's up for grabs and to link your cards up so we can stop by and see what you've made!

Today's card uses a sweet Magnolia image. I had this cute image sitting there unused from a previous stamping session, and decided she was calling to me to use her for this challenge! Pulled out Basic Grey's Bittersweet and followed a sketch off Operation Write Home. It was a sketch made by Teresa from Enjoy The VA Sunshine. I also gave Amy's straight hair a whirl off the Color Me Copics blog. Singing just keep trying in my head! I love how Amy colors hair, so I'm gonna have to keep working at! (This is another post done in advance, so these challenges are fresh when I've made my card!)

Wicked Good Blog Hop-The Angel Company

Had to join in the TAC Savvy blog hop today. I've been itching to play with some darling new stamps that hadn't been inked up yet! I'm slacking on Halloween artwork and it's only a few weeks away. How cute is this witch? She's from the Delightfully Spooky set. I played with her Dino brother and butterfly fairy from the set, but not her yet. I used Hip Hop FWIC paper pack, and Miss Moxie SWIC paper pack. I thought the purple-blue sheet from the Hip Hop pack looked a lot like night time. And I love the bright colors in the Miss Moxie SWIC collection for Halloween cards. I added stickles to her hair, and tights. The caldron and frog are popped out on her. I layed up my punches just to give it more fun Halloween depth. The edges are dusted with Bordeaux Palette Ink pad. She's colored with copics.
My other card uses the same set. I made this card a few months ago, but haven't put it on the blog yet. Figured this is a perfect time to show it off too! It's another darling image in that set, and uses Miss Moxie SWIC paper pack. His dino head is cut out and popped out. He's paper pieced with different tags from the Miss Moxie SWIC. The rest of him is colored with copics. I also used nesties to cut him out. He also is touched off with a bit of stickles. His sentiment comes from Spooktacular set.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to join in the fun using your TAC products. Link your artwork up to TAC's Savvy Projects blog. Stop over there to see what other creations are up on there as well.

Party Time Tuesday #16.

Another day to party! Today's challenge at Party Time Tuesdays is to make a Fall card, with a twist to add pumpkin or leaf. Little secret, I had made my card, and saw the fall part, and somehow missed the leaf or pumpkin! Lucky for me, my sweet image from Susana's store by Victoria Case had leaves in it! Whew! Anyhow, love how this card turned out! I used Mellow from Basic Grey, which is a great fallish paper. The sketch came from I Heart 2 Stamp. Perfect sketch to use up some scraps of papers. I even used some brads I've been hoarding from Queen and Co. Added stickles, paper pieced her hat, and scarf. She's colored with copics. I tried my hand at the straight hair tutorial by Amy from A Thousand Sheets of Paper on Color Me Copics. I love how she colors hair, so I was excited to see this video. (I made this card back in Sept, so all this stuff was freshly new when I made my card! In fact, I'm making this post on Sept 12th!)
Anyhow, be sure to share with us your creation at Party Time Tuesdays. Check out with the other designers made by clicking on their names to the right, or going to the PTT blog! Can't wait to see what you all make! There's a prize up for grabs if you play every week this month so be sure to check out the info about that on the PPT blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: Basic Grey, SU cardstock and ink, stickles, copics, Victoria Case stamp, nesties, Verve stamp-sentiment,

Mojo Pumpkin!

My neighbor has been fussing at me because I've been blog-a-lacking! I've been reading the Harry Potter Books, and finished all 7 books in the last few weeks. All my free time has been spent with my nose in a book! I wanted to get them read before the last movie comes out. That and finishing up on Gabi's room, and cutting vinyl for school projects, I've been slacking on the paper crafting! But a fun card for today. Did the Mojo Monday Sketch for the week. Used their cute pumpkin set, and a fun pack of paper I found at JoAnn's last week, Tim Coffee's Halloween in the small pack.
I swear, his nose looks better in person. It's bothering me in the photo...oh well, what can ya do! I love how the sentiment nesties layered. They look perfect together.

Other supplies: nesties, copics, stickles, EK punch.

Heart Girl.

Here was another one I sent in to TAC. Such a sweet set! Gotta say, I'm a big fan of Mabelle R's sets. There are some darling new sets of hers in the supplement. One called Cocoa and Max, it's so stinking cute! You can view the supplement HERE. This set has 4 darling young ladies in it, and it's called Cheery Thoughts.
This little lady is colored with copics, and is paper pieced. I used Juliette SWIC papers for this card. Most of the TAC papers come with tags, so it's easy to add the sentiment right to the tag and add to the card. The card base is from More Mimi cardstocks. The edges are dusted with Versamagic spots.
Other supplies: nesties, Mimi ribbon, heart pearls from the Clear and Pearl Gem Collection

Darling Frankenstinelle

I sent in some cards for a card call TAC had for their upcoming release. This was one I sent in to them. This set is a lot of fun, and currently on sale since it's been discontinued, and you can view that list here. I used Miss Moxie papers, and DCWV cardstock. She's colored with copics, and the sentiment is from another TAC set. The edges are dusted with Palette Violete ink pad.
The newest supplement is out from TAC today, and I'm excited to say that one of my cards is in the gallery for inspiration! You can view all of that stuff HERE. The card I made is the little Santa Boy under More Amazing Ideas.
Other supplies: nesties, stickles, red scrappers floss.
