You Are Monsterific!

Quick post today!  This image is from Bugaboo Digital Stamps called "Make It Snappy- Monsterific".  Thought it might be a fun card to say "thank you" and to get someone to smile (I mean who doesn't love googly eyes!?)  Anywhoooo, the image was colored with Copics- sorry no specifics, can't seem to find the piece of paper that I wrote them down on...

I am entering this into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl- July Challenge- Anything Goes with the option of adding Stars/ Stripes
Loves Rubberstamps- Challenge #159- Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly- Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp- Wednesday Challenge- Furry Friends
Bugaboo July Challenge- Anything Goes

Cherry Bird

Quick post and color up today!  This image comes to you from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Cherry Bird.  She's a cutie and would be perfect for a card for a super cool friend- I will have to see if I have any paper that could really make this image shine (Who am I kidding?  I probably do!! He! He!)!

*On a side note, I am still sticking with my "I will not buy any new paper this year" New Year's Resolution!  It is absolutely one of the hardest things I have EVER done- especially when there is so much cuteness out there just begging for me to get a hold of it and create!

Deep breath...I have beautiful paper here and perfectly acceptable for a card...

All I have to say is come December- Watch Out Santa!  My list is gonna be huge!)

I digress...Here are the Copics used on this image:
Bird: B24, 01, W2, 0
Hat, Glasses, Butterfly: C10,8,7,6,5,1, R27, 24, Y38, 15 (White Gell Pen)
Greenery: YG09, G07
Branch: E35, 37, 39

Lulu Loves Poppies- The Finished Product

Recently, I have been working on the 30 Day Color Challenge found here.  I love this time because it forces me to do something I loooove and get a ton of coloring done!)  This colored image was shown at a previous post for the 30 Day Challenge, but the finished product was not.  I needed a card for my sister's bridal shower, but wanted something non traditional- I think this is it!

Copic Colors Used
Her hair has black gel pen on it.  The flower in her hair with the pearl and the pearls on the card are all Queen and Co.  The papers... OOHHHHH THE PAPERS!! They are from the delicious 6x6 stack from MME called Sunshine.  The black flower centers on her shoes are black pearl pen.  The ribbon in actually flipped upside down (the other side says "bloom" with bright yellow flowers- definitely not right for this card)- it was in my scrap ribbon pile.  The centers of the flowers have gold Stickles on them with black gel pen dots.  I love her and needless to say, it's perfect for my sister too!)

I could have put a sentiment on it, but for everything I tried nothing worked.  Finally, I asked my husband what he thought and he said, "Why does it need a sentiment?  It looks fine the way it is."  I tell you that guy is a genius!)

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly- Trio-Tastic (ribbon, pearls and a Copic colored image)
Simon Says Stamp- Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday- Challenge #379- Stars and/or Stripes
Seven Kids College Fund- Challenge #128- Anything Goes

30 Day Coloring Challenge- Day 24

A quick post today... I have a folder with images that have been stamped and/or printed and are ready to color.  While I've colored her before, it has been a while. This cutie is from Lili of the Valley Rubber Stamps.  I don't see her on their site anymore, but perhaps you might find something else to suit your fancy!  I think I'm going to cut her out using circle dies and mount her on an easel card (stay tuned!).

Here are the Copics used:
Dog: W6,2,0
Girl: Face E11, 00,000
Hair/ Shoes: E34,37,29 
Dress:  BG 10,11,13,15,18
Swing: E09,19,49,57
Grass YG67, G28

30 Day Coloring Challenge- Day 22

This weekend I carved out a bit of time to color this cute Wizardette found here over at the TiddlyInks store.  I had the markers out from my last coloring/post and fell in love with the paper I have (wait until you see that deliciousness!!!) and decided to color her similarly to the LuLu image I posted.

DISCLAIMER:   Let's just say I am not great at coloring hair...I've tried and this is a bit of an improvement from when I started Copic coloring, but for some reason it is so hard for me to get the added dimension that so many others possess in the Copic coloring world! It's a work in progress- perhaps I should leave the coloring a little lighter, I don't know...  I'm really not trained at this at all so, the practice continues...

The Copics used are shown here and the pencil you see in there is Prismacolor Sepia- ENJOY!)

30 Day Color Challenge- Day 20- LuLu Loves Poppies

I loooove this stamp!  It's called Lu Lu Loves Poppies and can be found at the Stamping Bella store.  She's not totally finished yet, but I thought I would share the process of coloring her (she still needs a little more pizzazz, but you'll have to wait for the entire card to see that!)  I stamped her twice, fussy cut the entire first image and fussy cut just the flowers on the second, added some dimension and...WALA! A super cool image!  I colored her specifically for some great paper I have!
  Once the card is up I'll give more details on the image!  Enjoy!

Get Well Soon!

Hey there- two posts, one day?!  Crazy right?  This one is for a few challenges...

There are cards I create and then save for the right challenge and this one seems to fit the bill for a few this week.  This image is from Digital Delights by Looby Lou called "Heroic Henry" and can be found here.  I actually made this for someone that just had surgery- the inside says something to the affect of "I hope you get your Super Powers back real soon"!  I colored it with Copic markers (if I can find the sheet that has the colors I will edit the post later) and Stickles were used on the emblem on his chest.  The sentiment is from the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons website found here.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl- June Anything Goes (Masculine Project)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #156- Masculine Theme
Papertake Weekly- Ohhh so pretty - gotta love those Stickles:)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Use Your Favorite Technique/ Product- I loooove Copic coloring!
