Jaimie's Birthday Card

I made this card for my daughter, Jaimie :) I used a stamp from La La Land Crafts, my Copics and Spellbinders dies ... I think it came out super cute!

quill pen marci

I just love Marci from La La Land Crafts! so, I was thrilled when Irene came out with several new versions at the winter CHA show and bought as many as I could! lol ...

in the second version I used e50 and 53 for her hair, e000, r00 for her face and blush, r83 for her lips ... I used b37 for her blue hair pretties, hearts and trim on her top and on her sneakers ... for her cuffs I used y13 .. on the quill I used e42 and bg0000 ... on the pages I used n0 and n1 ... and for the book I used r83 :)

for the ink bottle I used e42 with w5 and bv25 ...

brand new from la la land crafts ... I just adore picture perfect marci!

in the second photo I used e43 and 44 for the frame, b34 and 37 for the blues and bv26 for the soles of her shoes :)

I used my favorite combination of e27 and 29 for her hair and my usual on her face - e00, e000, r00 and r83 ...

I hope you like her as much as I do!


Snowboard Marci

The first picture is of a Pansy that bloomed at my mom's house in January! Can you believe anything could bloom in January in NJ? Pansies are my mom's symbol for her mom so she felt that it was my grandmother watching over us and letting us know she is happy that we are all on good terms ...

I took that picture for inspiration for a either a card or maybe a framed piece that I will give my mom down the road ... I'm pretty happy with how the finished piece came out!

I used a huge selection of BV and V Copic markers with my PSX stamp, Brilliance Black Graphite Ink and Neenah Solar White paper from Ellen Hutson ... I almost forgot ... I also used my Atyou Spica glitter markers to give it a little extra something ...

I hope you like it ... and I really hope my mom will like it ... I will share the completed piece when it is ready to go :)


La La Land Mod Marci

I love this stamp! I think Marci is adorable with her guitar ... In this first one, I used E000, E00, R00 and R81 for her face and lips. I used E17 and E18 on her hair and RV91, 93, 95 and 99 on her outfit. I also used E15, 17 and 18 on her guitar ... I love the colors of her outfit! In person they're a beautiful plum/berry color :) I'm not at all happy with her hair. I suppose I just have to keep practicing ...

In this version I believe I used the same colors on her face. Her outfit is done with E71, 74, 77 and 79 ... I absolutely adore the color combination! I'm sorry but I don't recall what colors I used on the guitar. Most likely I used E35, E42 and B39 ... Her hair is troublesome for me. I believe I used E27 and 29 here ...

Please let me know what you think :)

Thank You Card for my Mom

This a thank you card I made for my mom for everything she's done for me ... I used my PSX Poppies stamp, Brilliance Graphite Black ink, Copic markers and Spellbinders French Frills dies with JustRite Ooh La La French Frills stamps ... Also, the green paper is from Teresa Collins' Fabrications line ... The red base card is from AC.

Inside the card I included a piece of vellum that I stamped and colored from the back ... A new technique that I tried and I thought came out pretty well :)

Christmas Card for my Mom

I made this card for my Mom using Marci from La La Land stamps, Copic markers, Spellbinders dies and the bow/flower are from Lil Inker ... My mom really liked it and I hope you will too :)

New Directions!

Hi everyone/anyone that might be out there! When I started this blog, I was completely addicted to my many Cricuts! I still love my Cricuts dearly but after so much upset and falling apart of the Cricut Circle, I became disenchanted ....

So, on I moved to Copic markers! I wasn't sure if I should start a new blog or just continue to post to this blog with my new adventures ... I've decided to just have this one blog ... I'm going to post my many Copic creations ... Whether they're completed projects or just colored pieces, whether they came out well or not, I'll be posting them all here!

I have a little backtracking to do as I have a couple completed projects done that I will post separately and numerous images that I have colored but haven't turned to cards or SB pages yet ...

So! I'm super excited about this new turn I'm taking and sharing it here with you ... I hope you'll help me learn along the way with your comments and I won't feel so guilty about my much-neglected blog!

The future looks bright :)
