Another New Year Birthday Card

My great, great nephew celebrates his second birthday on New Year's Day.  I did pretty much the same thing for this card as I did for the one yesterday.  I used La La Land Luka Cowboy stamp, Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I rubbed Distress Ink on the folder before I embossed it.  Luka is popped with foam dots.

Thank You - OWH Midweek Throwdown

OWH midweek throwdown was to make a thank you card in honor of Dixie, the shipper who has retired from her position and passed it on to Caro.

Happy Birthday, Theresa

My granddaughter, Theresa, has a birthday on New Year's Eve.  This card is for her, using La La Land Marci.  I used the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder and dabbed Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distressing Ink over it.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

OWH #101

I used OWH sketch 101 as the base for this card.  I made it my own though because I wanted to use these papers to make it.

The paper is from Echo Park Splash collection.

House Mouse Valentine

Twas the day after Christmas and my thoughts turned to Valentines Day.  It is too late to send Valentines to OWH, but I have some personal ones to make.  I got this Lovin' Mousefull House Mouse stamp at a garage sale for next to nothing during the summer.  It's time to use it.

I used these Copic markers to color it: 

Mice - E30, E43, 110
Hearts - B00,G02, RV02, Y06, YR00
Dish - C1

ODBD December Challenge

For this card, I pulled out some really old Creative memories paper and an image a friend stamped for me some time ago.  The color is a little more subdued than the way it scanned.

Count the Waves

During the summer, I bought several Just Rite Stamps when Scrapbooking Made Simple had them on a close out sale.  I put them away to use at a later date.  Well, that later date came today. I chose this particular one because I am still making love cards for OWH.  I used Copics to color some and a combination of Copics and Bic markers for others.  I used My Mind's Eye for the scallopped ovals and Bazzill for the solid colors.  Scallopped Nesties and plain ovals completed the picture.  The ribbon is satin ribbon from Michael's.

OWH Sketch 100

I wanted to use the snowboarding Luka stamp again from La La Land Stamps so I flip flopped the image to give him room to do his thing.  I used Copics to color the image, a little American Crafts Silver paper in the back.  I embossed the square with Recollections Winter Wonderland powder.  I have had the snowflake paper for so long that I no longer remember the manufacturer.

Snowboarding Luka

I made this Christmas card for my 2 year old great-great nephew.

Masking Tape and Distress Iink Technique

I did this card for the CardMaker challenge to use masking tape as a background and then ink it with Distress Ink.  I just love this technique.
