Color challenge cards

I made a couple of cards for the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers (SCS). Both using Copics for coloring.

I used images from Angie Blom Digital shop.  I so love her style!  I used Copics to color both images.

 The color challenge is Soft Sea Foam, Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia and Just Jade. You can use neutrals and then the dessert is AG (Anything Goes).  
 I used G20 for Soft Sea Foam, Misty Moonlight B97, Fresh Freesia V01 and Just Jade YG45 plus BG72. (I did not have BG72, so used BG70 tip to tip with BG75). 

Challenges TBA

SCS color challenge- Bright Holiday

I am Guest DT for the color challenge this month at Splitcoaststampers.  Mary is our hostess this week.

I do not have these cardstock colors, so used Kim Singdahlsen conversion chart, and used Copics Real Red=R29, Garden Green YG67 and Mango Melody Y38. Our 'dessert' is DP, so I colored a touch of each marker and tried to match it to DP. I used neutrals E43/44 Crumb Cake and N2 Smoky Slate. I added Nuvo shimmer pen to the star and the ornaments and added glossy accents to the star. I added shimmer pen to the die cut edge and around the edge of the sentiment.
The sweet image is MFT, My Favorite Things. 

Challenges TBA

Falliday fun

 Back from a weekend trip to Texas for a wedding and I decided it was a great day to make cards and catch up with my Zoom friends!  I looked at the list of Falliday challenges and got to work!

This is a mini-slimline card.  6.5" x 3.5" and the challenge is to make a pumpkin not orange.....  I used some retired SU DSP and used a tree punch to add a tree line to the background.  Then, I colored the images in using Copic markers in coordinating colors. The images are from CC Designs. 

The next challenge asked for a squirrel, and I was happy to break out this Kitchen Sink Stamps squirrel set and make a card for my husband, who is squirrel obsessed. He names them and enjoys watching them out of the kitchen window : )  The squirrels like to try to raid the bird feeders, which I am not the biggest fan of....oh well....  The simple pleasures!

 The next challenge was combined, Frosty the Snowman and Alpha B-Birds.  The original image- I wrecked by bleeding red Copic...., so I trimmed the birds off of that image and added them to the bottom of this image.  A quick fix and I am OK with it.  The die cut is a Simon Says Stamps snowflake. The snowman is by Bugaboo digital stamps, now out of business.

Winter Wonderland

 I have two posts for today, if you are looking for the Classy Card Ladies post, Click HERE

Hi stamping friends!  I had fun and created a card using a classic winter scene for the mid-month challenge post for Jan's Digital Stamps

I used the precolored trees from Tree Scene. The silhouette sleigh ride image and sentiment are from the set Sleigh Ride

 I am hoping you can see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella. The clouds were done using Soft Sky ink and a stencil by Recollections. I also sponged on some Soft Sky ink (SU) on the lower section of the card. A touch of shimmer was added to the boarder and all done!

We'd love to have you join us at Jan's Digital Stamps Blog for the November challenge!

Honey, I'm home!

Hello!  We are back home after a week of hubby's baseball and warmer weather : )  I was able to get a little ink onto paper, and Distress ink blending.  Here is what I created:
  For the Featured Stamper challenge today, I made a Winter version of Emma's Halloween card.

   The stamps are Stampers Anonymous and this was a Stamptember (2021) stamp set.  I just love this!  Distress ink blending and splatters added (water, ink and Wink of Stella).  Copic markers were used for coloring. There is a stencil for the moon included in the stamp set- I love this!

And, for Falliday, I made a set of tags. This is a sweet SU set- which I love : )

My curious kids always have to try to see what's inside their presents before Christmas... as I did when I was younger.  So, I number them instead of putting To: and From: labels on them.  I used Distress ink blending on these tags and splatters and wink of Stella and ink splatters as well. 

Challenges: TBA

Jan's Digital Stamps November

After a nice break, Jan's Digital Stamps challenges are back!  While we were on break, Jan did continue to release new images- check out her store for all of the New Releases. 

This set is called Baby it's Cold Outside.  The digi set comes with precolored and uncolored/black and white images plus sentiment.  For this card, the precolored image were used. 
 The swirly background is a 3D embossing folder, I swiped white pigment ink over the raised portions of the EF.  The ink on the BG is Marina Mist (SU).  I did not add much color to the lower section of the panel.  The ice pond and the fences are dies (CC Designs) and the trees are punched out.  The clouds are also dies (SU).  

 I hope to see you join in the challenge over at Jan's Challenge Blog
