Here is one more from the Peddlers Pack stamps that I have created.  Most of the colors are from JennieB's stamping site and the info on her classes.  I have "borrowed" her color combinations.  Copics were used for the coloring, of course.

Blue ornaments - B21, 24, 26
Red ornaments - R22, 24, 27
Green pine needles - G20, 82, 85 and Y11
Yellow ornaments - Y32, 35, 38
Background - B000
I colored the garland with R27 and the applied red Stickles.

Here is one pic of the inside.

I used the Spellbinders die in Labels One and three different sizes to get the layering effect.  The phrase stamp is one from Penny Black.  If there anything other you would like to know just holler and I will try to answer.

Yes, Virginia there is a Santa!

This Santa idea came from Scrap & Bean again and it is beautiful.  Once again it is a Peddlers Pack stamp and if Kathy at Scrap & Bean doesn't have in stock, I am sure that she will try to get one for you.

He was colored in Copics (of course) and they are;
Reds - R35, 37; RV29 and E19
Skin - E000, 00, 11, 21
Beard, hair and eyebrows - W0, W1, W3
Eyes - B00 and a tiny bit of Y000 with the blender in the corner of his eyes
I used a fine glue pen and then sprinkled Glitter Ritz in Sahara on his glass frames.
I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to the actual lens of his glasses.
I used the Flower Soft in Polar White on the brim of his hat.

This isn't easy to see but if you click on the photo it will zoom in for you.  The "Yes Virginia" stamp is from the Penny Black line and I simply stamped and embossed. 

I kept this whole card quite simple as I wanted to showcase the actual Santa image.

As always, I would love to hear your comments and questions.

Christmas Sleigh

This is another beautiful stamp image from Peddlers Pack.  I know that Scrap & Bean had some so give her a call and if she doesn't have one in stock, she will definitely try to get one for you.

I have colored everything with Copics but I didn't write down all of the ones I used.  I do have a partial list for you though.

Sky - BG000
Sleigh runner and sleigh edges - E30, 33, 35, 37
Seat and back - YR12, 15, 16
Reds - R35, 37; RV29; E19
Anything else is missing from the list.  I forgot to write them down!  Thought I was getting better at that!  LOL!

Here is one quick pic of the inside.

The Believe was a Stampendous stamp and I simply stamped and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I would love to hear what you think of this one.

Snow Arrives

As it has now snowed here in Edmonton, it is appropriate that a "flake" card is shown!  This idea was one that I saw at the wonderful Scrap and Bean store.  They are located at the north west end of the city and the owner Kathy Hanson and her staff are absolutely fabulous.  They have many classes and a fantastic selection of stamps from lots of different companies.  The also carry the whole shebang of Copic supplies.  Check out their web site or give her call.  Kathy is super about finding product or supplies that you are looking for.

On with the card!  The stamp is from Peddlers Pack; I used glossy cardstock and colored with Copics.
B05 for the largest flake
B02, 04, 12 for the other flakes
Glossy Accents was applied to the largest flake
Scribbled Crystal Stickles on the background

I apologize for my hand holding the card but with all the gloss and shimmer my camera was rebelling.  I held the card at an angle and got it to work but there still some spots that are glaring.

I have one to show of the inside.

I don't like the snow and the cold but I do think that snowflakes are a miracle in themselves.  I thought the stamp was appropriate.  Unfortunately, I bought this many years ago and it was from PSX and they are no longer around.  Too bad as I loved their stamps. 

If you would like to know anything else let me know and I will try to help.  I would love to know what you think of this one.

Snowy Glitter

Hi!  I have a new card and post to show you.  This is little Tilda with lantern from awhile ago and she is colored with Copics.

Colors I used:
Coat, hat and leggings - BG11, 72, 75
Socks - BG0000, 000, 01 then I went over with C1, C3
Boots - C1, 3, 5, 7
Light in lantern - Y 15, 13, 11
Hair - E35; YR23, Y23
Skin - E50, 000, 21 and R30
Wood frame of lantern - I didn't write these down for some reason but I think they were E31, 33, 35

I went over the fur parts with liquid applique and as it didn't puffy up very much I went over those areas with Stickles.

Papers are from My Minds Eye, the white piece was embossed with the snowflake Cuttlebug folder, the shimmer swirl is a Tim Holtz die cut and then covered with the Glitter Ritz in Ice Blue, the flowers and lace are from my stash and the little branches are a Martha Stewart punch.

I am entering this one in the challenge at Just Magnolia which is Anything Goes with the option of lace and pearls.

If you would like to know any other details send an email and I will try to help.  I hope this inspires you.
