Garden Daisy


Welcome to all.  Today is my day for inspiration for Ching Chou Kuik Digital Stamps. 

I  chose this beautiful Garden Daisy to work with.  I love how she turned out.  I used Copics to color her with.  and the flower is by Petal loo.  I used eye shadow to do the back ground and the base is white with  the black card stock to accent the image.

We would also love to have you join us on our facebook page as well.

Rose in the Storm


Hi Everyone I hope your all having a wonderful day.  Today is my day to inspire you.  I chose this wonderful image called Rose in the Storm to do for you today.  You can find her here in the Esty Store  . 
I colored here with copic and my favorite colors Green. The fan on the side is a die cut I got from an RAK that I belong too.  I added the lace for some bling.  Our theme this week is sparkle and shine so mine is the bling around the image.  The base card is 6x6 and a dark moss green for contrast to the light green.  I sure hope you like my card and will leave me some comments on what you think of her.  
I am also inviting you to our facebook page to play along and you can find that here.  
Our theme for this month is Bunch of Love so come join us for a chance to win some wonderful images by Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps

And also want to invite you all to our Monthly challenge as well and you can find that here

So till next time Happy Crafting.

Peony


Good Morning to you all. 
Today I am posting this gorgeous Peony by Little Blue Button.   You can find this image in the store here.   This is for the Challenge at Through The Craft Room Door Anything goes challenge.  For those who have not done challenges before that means you can make a card or mixed media or scrapbook page or what ever you want and enter it into the challenge that you will find here.
We also have a facebook page if you want to come down and join in the fun there and meet some really special people.  I am going to put the link to that here.
I colored this beautiful flower with copics a did two images so I could use foam dots to give it demention.  The paper in the back ground is from some I did with my Geli plate and it had some of the colors in it so I cut it down to fit.  The base card is hot pink card stock and on top of that just to make the background paper stand out I used white.  I did the corners with a fiskars punch and the sentiment is a fiskars punch as well.

I hope you like this one and will leave me a comment as I  do read each of them

Have a great Crafting day so will see you next time.

Inspiration by Linda "Bunch of Love"




Good Morning to you all!!  Today is my day for Inspiration for the Challenge at
 Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.
The Theme of our challenge this month is "Love All Around"  I used this image with the heart balloons called Bunch of Love for my card.  You can find this image at the Esty shop here:

I colored her with copics and mounted her on a white card base with the bottom layer a dp given to me by a friend that has passed away.  Then the next layer is just a piece of black to make the image stand out.  The hearts are from Fiskars punches, and the love is a sentiment from a friends punch.  We do share things like this but I use these a lot so I am considering buying my own.  The gems are just for some bling.  I hope you like my card.  I do hope you will leave me a comment on my card.

DESERT ROSE FREEBIE

Good Morning all today I want to show you a Freebie that was given to us at TTCRD to play with and to promote The Artist that drew it.  First let me tell you about the image.  We all think it is a different flower but to me it looks just like the desert rose.  I colored it with my copics and used the Red violet colors as this is the color of the ones I have in my front yard.  I mounted it on the darkest pink card stock I had and used some digital polka dot paper for the background to layer it.  I didn't put any bling on it as I wanted it clean and simple as I will use it for a birthday card.  
We will be giving this image away on our facebook page at Through The Craft Room Door for 48 hours starting the 4th of Feb.  Once that time is gone this will no longer be available so hurry over and join the fun.    Color the image and post it to the facebook page so we can see what you have done with it.  What fun to see how each person seeing an image differently.  You will see what all of us on the design team have done ours and all so different.  SO COME JOIN US!!!!

Playing Hockey


Today I am posting for Through The Craft Room Door.  This image is from Kenny K and is called Hockey Player.  I made this for my 9 year old grandson who has played hockey now for 2 years.  
Our Challenge over at TTCRD is always an ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE so you can use anything you want for an image or even do some mixed media or what ever you choose.  

The Prize for this week with the sponsor of Kenny K is if your chosen to win you get to go to their store here and pick out 3 images.  I know you will have trouble choosing 3 images as there are dozens of wonderful images to choose from.  I do have quite a few from there and it took me hours to choose what I wanted.  So grab your coffee and go over and check out the site, then get something made and join us at TTCRD for a chance to win those wonderful images.

I colored this image with copics and matted it to a Black 5 1/2 x 5/12 card base.  I didn't add any embellishments but the brad to represent the hockey puck as it is for a boy.  I know he will love this one.  The sentiment was computer generated and added to the card.  I do hope you like this an it will inspire you to come join in the fun at Through The Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge this week.

Winter Blues

Good Morning to you all.  I colored this beautiful image by Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps.  I fell in love with her as you can use her for so many different occassions.  I am using her today for a Winter card.  I have made lots of card with here and I used her as a Christmas card this past year as well.  Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of that card.  I just made this one for a friend of mine's birthday as it is this next month and she gets depressed with the cold weather.  I did talk her into coming down to Florida from Ohio to visit for a while to get out of the cold weather, which makes me happy too. 

Anyway I used copics to color her and a new die cut for the flowers.  That daisy is a tough one to do it is so many tiny pieces but I love the end result.  The small flowers there are punches but the swirls are I spellbinder die cuts.  The bow was made with my bow maker that hubby made me and the gems are by recollections.  The background paper is from a pack of paper that I got at Michaels that has several different cuts and colors like this one.  They are all 5x7 and fits so nicely.

I would like to enter this card into the anything goes challenge at Dies R Us Challenge "Winter Blues"  here.

I hope you will come join in the fun there with me.  You just need to do something for the Winter Blues and use die cuts in your creation.  I did enjoy doing this card as I am obsessed with die cuts and get one a month in a die cut monthly club through Paper Wishes. com.

So till next time Happy Crafting

CoCo's Friend

Good Morning to you all. 

 Today I am posting for my new DT position with Through the Craft Room Door.  
This image is by Sami Stamps and you can find their website here:  

I fell in love with this image cause it  reminds me of my sister and I in the winter when we were just kids.  
I colored them with copics and decided to do the stripe dp as it matched all the colors I used and is from Reflections.   I used a sentiment from my stash that seems to jump out to be used on this card.  The twine is from my stash and just a little added something to make it stand out more The gems are also from my stash and a purchase from the Craft fair in Orlando a couple years ago. 

Our prizes for this weeks challenge  is a $12.00 voucher to the Sami Stamps store.  What a great gift that will be as she has so many wonderful images to choose from.  

Once you get a card made for the Anything Goes Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door you can hop over to our blog here  and enter it for a chance at that $12.00 voucher.
