Copic marker holder made from Starbuck's Frappuccino carton

My mom is so spoiled.  For her birthday she asked for a few Copic markers.  I purchased what I thought she needed based on my favorite color combos.  Since it is a starter kit, I could keep the "portable" copic holder small and useful.

Check out the following video to see how I created a copic holder for her that also stores her images in small folders.

Time for Fall with Tilda!!!!

This week a challenge at Sweet Stampin Challenge took my interest.  The challenge was to dust off the punches. When I first started with paper crafts, I loved leaves.  I purchased who knows how many punches of maple and oak leaves.  I still love them and I loved the Tilda image under the leaf.  So I started my project set out to use those punches.
The leaf punches are mostly EK Success, Marvy and some Sizzix dies.  I used K&company paper by Tim Coffey.  For coloring sweet Tilda, I used Copic markers.
Face - E000, E11, E01, R20
Sweater - YG91, Y38, YR12, Y17
Pants - B00, B34, B95
Boots - Y04, YG91, Y18
Leaf - Yr23, Y38, Y17 and YR31

I added to clock face with Tim Holtz spinners as an embellishment.  I kept the image free of glitter and sparkle since I will be donating to Operation Write Home.  It did take alot for me not to want to add stickles on the leaves.
The large circle was cut out with the Martha Stewart circle cutter.  Which I have my days of like and dislikes with this cutter.  It's great if you just want to cut a circle, but if you want to place a cut out - it takes come skill for centering.

The inside of the card is where the Tilda image is glued on a torn edge mat that has been distressed with Vintage photo.  I glued more of the smaller leaf punches around her boots.

When the card is standing, you can see the number of leaves I glued around the card for dimension.
I hope you enjoyed this week's card.  I love lil Tilda surrounded by the leaves.  It made me dig out my Fall sweatshirts and sweaters - well I guess the tempature drop to 45 degrees helped too.

Flower patch Tilda with the new Girl's Paperie collection

I was reviewing the challenges this week and I was able to use my Flower patch Tilda and new paper from The Girls' Paperie - Pennants.  I love using reds and blues in my cards.
 Tilda was colored in Copic markers.
Face - E000, E11, E01, E00 and R20
Shirt - R01, R29, R20
Pants - B18, B28 and B00
Hair - Y02, Y18 and Y 17.
I distressed around the circle with Tim Holtz Distress ink - Tea Dye.

The banner was created just by cutting out the triangles from the paper.  I left 1/8 in. on the triangle in order to gold over and glue to the jute twine.
The flowers are by Recollections and Prima.  (I hear that Recollections is a sub company of Prima for Michael's - not sure - I can't find anything on it on the internet).  Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and sold by the spool.

The sentiment is from Fiskars and stamped on the paper collection using a Fiskars punch.
The inside of the card is finished with the paper collection and a yellow flower as an accent.
I hope you enjoyed by finished card.

First Digi Stamp images from Bugaboo - entry to their challenge

This was my first digital image purchase from Bugaboo stamps.  I loved the stamps so much that I ended up purchasing the entire Halloween collection.  Bobblhall Frank is the image I chose to create the card.  I am also entering their challenge at their blog - Catch the bug - 3D Halloween.

I am "brand new" to the digital stamp world and I loved how all I had to do was print!  I could print the image in any size that I needed and as many times as I want.  I assured that I backed up the file from hard drive so that I don't lose any of the precious images!!  Check out Bugaboo stamps for the collection I purchased and then browse the site for the other images.  You won't be disappointed - and they are cheap!!.

So here's the card.  The card meets the 3D challenge since it is a Joy card (see the following link on a great tutorial Splitcoast Stampers - Joy card) and opens up.  The card front measures 6x6 in and the interior card measures 5x5 in.

The image was colored in Copic markers.
Face and hands - G99, G21, YG 67
Shirt - V15, V17
Hair - C1, C3, C7
Shoes - W5, W3
Pumpkin and Candycorn - Y38, Y17
I used the K&Company Halloween paper for the design paper and also my embellishments.  I cut out the words from the paper to add to the pages.

Inside of the card.  The edges of all the papers are distressed using Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress inks.  The inside of the card opens for a person to add their own message.

Tilda by the Sea for the Totally Tilda Challenge

This is one of the first Tilda's I colored with Copic markers.  So when I saw the challenge at Totally Tilda, - Glitter and Sparkle and Just Magnolia - sketch.  I dug through my images to find something that I could "bling up".
Here's the final product.
For the image I used.
Face and skin - E000, E11, E01, E00 and R20
Dress - B95, B97, B99 and B21.  I love these color combos for the blue.
Hat - Y17
Hair - E15, E19 and E53

I added rock candy stickles to the him of dress and blue stickles to her bows.

The embellishments are from Prima (flowers and the bing).  I created the tag with the sentiment "miss u".
I matted the image on designer paper by K&Company and used lace in the back as an extra touch.  The image and mat are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool.
An easy card that I created in less than 20 minutes.
Thanks for checking out this weeks projects and challenges I entered.
