Father's Day Snipit

So for once I am actually on the ball and have all my Father's day cards made ahead of time. Now if I can only motivate enough to get them in the mail on time I will be doing good. So I normally don't post cards until the recipient has received them, but I am making an exception because I decided to enter the card I made for my Father into the Tiddly Inks "Take it Easel-y challenge". I am super excited because the challenge uses Easel cards which are my favorite to make because easel cards are more of a little gift than cards. You can set them up and display their beauty for all the world to see. I am also excited because I used the stamp that helped me discover Tiddly Inks, it's called Father's Day Vintage Truck. I was looking last year for an old truck stamp and came across Tiddly Inks. Of course, I bought the truck stamp right away because I LOVED it, and then I started browsing all the other amazing images Christy has to offer in her webstore. I became a HUGE fan and now have tons of her wonderful images.
Truck Cardwm1I have to admit, The vintage truck is one of my favorites because it reminds me of a truck my dad used to have. I learned to drive in the truck and I loved it as much as my dad did. It was our "thing" I am so excited to give this card to him for father's day.
As usual, I colored this with PRISMACOLOR pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The card itself is nothing fancy, but that is just the way my dad would have it and I know he will love it.
Hope you all are having a great day!! Thanks for Reading!

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a card using an image I had the privilege of coloring for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps Nov. 1st New Release.  I couldn't wait to color this image us as I had inspiration for what kind of card I would make before I had even printed the image to color. I love those AH HA moments.
This was my second attempt at a shaker card. I am still trying to get the technique down without getting sequins and glitter stuck on the foam that raises the shaker layers. But, I thought this turned out really well for a second attempt. Here is a close up of my colored image. I colored the image with my Prismacolors using the pencils themselves as the blending agent on Canson Mi Teintes white paper. The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from a friend of mine from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Card Swap. Let me Tell you, I am so thankful for Alyce and Kit and Clowder. I look forward to all the coloring classes and group support you get from being apart of her group!

Julia Spiri Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All! Today I am sharing a project I made using this "Mask Girl" stamp from Julia Spiri's Digital Stamp Shop. I used to not be into the color purple, but over the last few years, it has really grown on me, and I thought purple would be just fantastic on this image. 
I colored this girl with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens then I accented it with stickles glitter.  The card base is from another project I'm working on and will hopefully share with you all in the near future.  The lace and ribbons and green stick-on gems are all random finds from our local Walmart. and I accented with some Mulberry roses from Hobby Lobby as well as a couple handmade roses from your's truely.  Here's a little closer shot of the card and image.
I am entering my image in the following challenges: Julia Spiri Challenge Blog #25 Anything Goes with a Twist of Tic Tac Toe Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog #134 Lots of Layers + a Stamp Crafting when we can #130 - No Square Cards

Demera Bashful Fae Scalloped Easel Card

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing yet another card I made with my Scalloped Easel SVG Template that I designed this week. Keep looking later this week for more info on how you can get that SVG for free.  For this card I used a freebie image from the Faery Inks Facebook group. I believe she is called Demera Bashful Fae. If you just LoVE this image check out more from the Faery Inks Shop. You can also join the Faery Ink Facebook Group as well.

One of my favorite parts about the Easel Cards is that they make the cards more like gifts than cards. I love to accent them with tons of embellishments as well. This one I acc noted the images with a variety of pink papers and fake daisies and a couple of my handmade roses, as well as some burlap and lace.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I am still very much getting the hang of coloring with alcohol pens, but I am pleased with the way she turned out.  I am super excited about sharing my SVG with everyone so keep checking…
