Watching the birds

Sorry I haven't posted anything lately but it is a hectic time of year which we all love.  I finally have a little time for myself so thought I would post a card.  Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and I appreciate all of the comments.  I used a Memory Box stamp with this card and after coloring, I glittered the birds.  The background paper is by Basic Grey and was in my stash.  The pine needles die is from Impression Obsession, the cat die from Cheery Lynn, and the window die from Memory Box.  Enjoy.

I love doing the sky areas of cards but haven't really gotten into it too much.  There are so many beautiful colors of inks out there to choose from.  On this card, I used an old retired SU ink  which is Cool Caribbean  I sponged it on white glossy cardstock leaving splotches of white cloud showing.  I then stamped the limbs on using an old stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  I then punched out a red cardinal using a Martha Stewart punch.  I embossed the cherry cobbler cardstock from SU and layered that onto a white card.  This was taught the other week at Paper Ink on the downtown mall and hopefully we will have enough people for another class.  Enjoy!

Loving Purple

Good morning Bloggers.  I got the idea for this card from the Penny Black blog and Pinterest.  I love the sky color and this Penny Black stamp.  I've bene playing wiht different sky colors this week and hopefully will get another post done soon.  I'm using different inks on the sky but mostly the Ranger distress inks.  I used Shaded Lilac plus another one on this sky.  Thank you for looking.

Summer daisies

 I did this card a couple of monthsago and it so reminds you of summer!  The stamp is by Stamps by Judith and my good friend bought it at the Chantilly show back in June.  I just had to borrow it and color it with my copics.  I attached a cheery Lynn butterfly and used a sentiment from SU.  Hope you enjoy this as we ride out the storm!  We can keep our fingers crossed that it is not going to do much damage and we won't lose power.

Hummingbird by Sparkle N Sprinkle

This is an old card that I made for Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I used copics for coloring and used the tear-ific tape that SNS sells to put two strips on the card and then covered those with purple glitter. 
This stamp set and the Tear-ific Tape can be found at the store of SNS at  The tape comes in several different sizes -- 1/8", 1/4", 1/2", and the large 2 1/2".  Enjoy!

Purple asters

This stamp and die set of asters was purchased last month from Heartfelt Creations.  The pack of paper had 24 double sided sheets and were made for the stamps and asters.  Plus, of course, purple is one of my favorite colors.  I stamped the image with Momento ink and colored with Copic markers.  I die cut the asters ,  colored the centers and layered them onto the image.  I only die cut the two larger asters.
