Scribbles Designs - Guest Design - #833 Blue Police Booth

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas Eve!  This is my last Guest Design post for Scribbles Designs and I have really enjoyed playing around with their lovely digital images!  Thank you to the Scribbles Team for the opportunity!

I'm sharing a card with you that is so unlike any image I've ever colored before.  I saw that Scribbles Designs had this super cool Blue Police Booth.  For Dr. Who fans, this would be known as a "Tardis".  Now I'll be honest, I know close to nothing about Dr. Who, but I happen to live with two fans, both my husband and son. They like to talk about the show and I feel completely in the dark!

So, in the spirit of research, I watched 2 episodes of Dr. Who the other night.  I'm going to be honest..the second episode scared me and I had to turn it off, or I wouldn't sleep that night!  I did think it was interesting and found myself getting into it a bit.  

So here's my Whovian Creation, I hope you like it!  I've colored up a few, including a birthday card that I plan to give one of the boys this coming year!

Here are the Copic colors I used to create a close version of Tardis Blue

Thanks for visiting my blog, Happy Holidays!

Power Poppy Sunshine of My Life

Here we are, just a few weeks to Christmas and I'm posting late summer/fall cards!  Truth is, I colored this a while back and just never photographed or posted it.  So, with the cold grey skies and dropping temps, I thought this might be a warm, happy project to share. 

If you're not familiar with #PowerPoppy, I encourage you to drop in at the shop and check out all the beautiful images they offer in both clear stamp and digi.  This happens to be a digi stamp called, Sunshine of My Life and here's what it looks like uncolored.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll leave me a comment just to say hi!

Unity Kit of the Month October 2016 card

So just a short time back I became a Unity KOTM club member.  And I have colored up a BUNCH of these images and have spent no time at all turning them into cards.  So now that's what I'm about to do..starting with this one :)  I'm about to pop this one in the mail, so I thought I'd take a quick pic of it and get it blogged.  I'm sure I'll only be blogging a few of them, because this time of year it's all about cranking these cards out, lol!

FYI, if you've ever been considering becoming a Unity Kit member, well now is the time to do it.  In 2017 the prices will be going up, but as a current member, you'd be grandfathered in, at least through next year.  AND, you can purchase past kits at a this one!

This is the kit I used from October 2016, as you can see there are a lot of awesome images here!

So back to cardmaking and various other chores around the house this Monday afternoon, I hope you are having a GREAT day!

Bo Bunny Holly Jolly - Green Santa!

So if you've followed me a while, you may know what a huge fan of Santa I am.  I'm always on the search for the cutest Santa images, big ones, small ones, fat ones, thin ones!  This image came from a newer release by #BoBunny, called "Holly Jolly"

I've committed to coloring this guy 4 ways before Christmas.  This is card #2, my Red Santa posted a week ago or so.  I LOVE him in Green, what do you guys think???

I picked this set up from a friend of mine, Deana Benson over at her Etsy shop, you may want to grab Bo Bunny Holly Jolly for your holiday cards, it's so darned cute!

Other items I used to make this card:
Red and Gold Twine

Ornamental Newton by Newtons Nook Designs and Kat Scrappiness

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful relaxing Sunday!  I'm here today with Kat Scrappiness showing off an adorable #NewtonsNookDesigns stamp set #OrnamentalNewton that Kat has in the shop!  I used my Stampoholic Stamping Tool to get a perfect impression while stamping!

I copic colored the Newton Kitty, and cut him out.  Behind him on the white square layer, I floated in some distress ink in Peacock Feathers.  I cut all the square layers and sentiment circle out, using some of Kat's awesome stitched dies.  They cut so beautifully and are really a bargain!  I'll link all the products I've used below.  

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day!

Gina Marie Designs Poinsettia Die and 4x4 Circle Quilted Die

Hi all, just enjoying a lazy Saturday.  I got some housecleaning done and now I think I'll poke around on the internet for a bit before a little crafty time.  

Wanted to show you a new card I made using some of Gina Marie Designs new dies.  Gina has a growing line of quilt dies and this is her brand new one, Circle Quilted Die #4.  I'm going to be posting another card that I used this same quilt on soon, but I couldn't wait to show off these gorgeous vibrant Poinsettia Set 1 Dies!  I love the details on these and thought they looked stunning against the plain creme colored quilt pattern.  

GMD has 3 different poinsettia dies, if you'd like to check out all of them

Lastly I add Gina's Cursive Merry Christmas Die in sparkly gold layered on top of red in 4 layers to make it really stand up off the card.  I finished with some pearls and May Arts string.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Kat Scrappiness and Honey Bee Stamps Little Pickup

Hello everyone, I can't believe it's Thursday already!  My folks were here visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday and they just left yesterday to head back to Chicago.  I'm feeling just a little bit sad they had to go, so it was nice to immerse myself into a crafty project using this brand new set by Honey Bee Stamps called "Little Pickup".  Hehe, that's what I needed, was a little pickup!

So using some fun products from Kat Scrappiness, I was able to create this lovely christmas card!  I copic colored the truck, and my sentiment was heat embossed in Hero Arts White.  

Thanks for stopping by! 
Here's a link to all the great products I used from the Kat Scrappiness online store!
