Inspiration by Linda Misty Eyes


Good Morning to everyone!  Today is my day for Inspiration  My image is called Misty Eyes, and you can find her here at the Esty Shop by Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps. 
Our theme for this week is Anything Goes and I decided to do mine in green monochrome I love this image and love how she turned out.  I hope you feel the same way and will leave me  a comment on this.  

We have a Facebook Challenge as well and I am inviting you to come and play along with us there as well. Here is the address for that page.  
Our Monthly challenge is here and our theme for the month is "Something New" so I am also inviting you to come play along with us there as well.   

I colored my image with copics and cut the image with a new set of die cuts from Spellbinders (it was  gift for me for Christmas to me from me).  The gems are from Recollections.  I kept it simple so not to take away from the image.  

I hope you like my card and will leave me some love.

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.

Good Morning everyone.   Today is my day for your inspiration. 

 My image is called Gingerbread Man Parade.  Our theme for this week is called "Add Some Sparkle".  

My sparkle is that I added glitter to lots of places on the image but unfortunately you can't really see it in the photo.  
I colored this image with copics and mounted it on some pretty turquoise paperI love the contrast of this with her dress.  The two brads are gingerbread men that I got at a garage sale bundle.

You can find this image in the Esty shop here. 
I know you will find a lot of wonderful images that you will love.

Autumn Moon



Hi All Linda Here and today is our monthly challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and the Theme is Bright and Beautiful. 

This is one of my favorite images.  And I love how she turned out.  I colored her with copics and cut the edge with Fiskars  edge punch. I decided to use the purple as a backing paper.  I had this green paper that I found in my stash and it was a perfect fit. I added the gems for the bling.  I hope you like how this turned out and will leave me a comment. 

You can find this image at the Esty shop here.
There are a lot of wonderful images there so take your time and look around.  Happy Shopping.

Our monthly challenge goes from December 1st till the 30th of December.  You have a lot of time to check out the DT inspirations and make your project.  The website for the challenge here.

Animal Friends

Good Morning to you all.  
Today is my first day as a new Designer for Through The Craft Room Door Challenge.
I am very excited to have been chosen to work with this wonderful group of ladies.  We have a challenge each month that is Anything Goes so you can play along with any image or project you want.  I love this idea because I have so many images and really don't need to buy more. (Although I still do, but then who doesn't right?)

Our Sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps and you can find all her adorable stamps here.

I have had this image in my stash for a few years and I do believe it is retired now because I couldn't find it on the website any longer but there are tons of wonderful images to choose from and I hope you will go check them out.
You can win a $12.00 store Voucher to the store if you win the weekly prize, so come join us at TTCRD here   http://ttcrd.blogspot.com/.  

I colored this image with my copics and used eye shadow (bought at the dollar store) to do the sky and background.  Once you do the eye shadow you must mist it very lightly with a fixative (I use cheap hairspray) so that it doesn't rub off.  I tend to use it a lot.  Then I die cut this adorable tree out with the butterfly leaves and cut a hole in the card just behind the giraffe an inserted it there.  I glued it to the card so it wouldn't move.  I added it to the green background paper, that I got from a friend to make it bright.  The base card is orange and the sentiment is one from my stash that I have had for ages.  This would also make a great card for birthdays for little ones.  I have a friend that loves giraffes so this is for her.

I would also like to enter this card into the Challenge at Artistic Inspiration Challenge blog here.



Till the next time we meet Happy Crafting to you all

Breaking Dawn









Hi everyone today I am posting a different cut for my card.  I found this one on pinterest and loved it so decided that my card for the Anything goes week at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps would be different.  I really like how this turned out.  The first photo of course is how it looks folded.  It is called the gate easel card. I used some glitter paper that had pink and black in it  for the card.  I got this paper from a friend who was cleaning out here stash.  I never say no to paper!!  I used the image Breaking Dawn (that you can find here).  Making the card was easy and I did download the dementions as well so I have them.  I used all the same papers front and back (it actually made the card thicker).  I used some flower stickers on the inside to stop the image when she is standing.  Plus on the belly band that keeps it closed and the two front flaps.  Other then that there are no embellishments, just lots of layering.   I love the simplicity of this one.  Just have to do that sometimes without all that bling.  My image is the main feature and that is what I wanted.

For this week of the month our theme is Anything goes so I try to do something different each month.  

Our Monthly challenge is still on and you still have a few days left to enter so if you are interested in winning a nice prize come join in (here).  I would also like to invite you to join our Facebook group as well.  You will find lots of great people there and lots of Inspiration as well.  

So sweet followers I hope you will leave me a comment on how you think I did on this one and I will catch up with you next time.

Christmas Candle Angel


Good morning to everyone today!  
It is a wonderful day here in Florida.  Hurricane Matthew is gone and we are fine.  
This is going to be one of my Christmas cards.   I have been making Christmas cards for a while so hopefully I will have enough and not have to panic when it hits Dec. 15th.  LOL  

I colored this image with copics and mounted her onto some designer paper by Recollections Christmas pack from last years stash.  The Yellow snowflakes are from a new die by Darice that I got for my birthday.  I punched the corners with a fiskars corner punch which I love.  The lace is just a small piece from some that I got at a garage sale as is the small piece of yellow ribbon on the side. I hope you like my card and will leave me a comment on it.  I do read them all. 
This Beauty is called Christmas Candle Angel as you can see by the title.  Out theme for the second week at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps is Red or Green.  I chose green to compliment her dress.  It actually is a soft yellow but the computer shows it almost a yellow green but that is ok it  pretty like that too.  

Our Monthly Challenge at Ching_Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Challenge is Christmas and if you want to play along you still have a few days to do so and you can add your card to it and here is the link for that challenge Here

I would also like to invite you to join in  with us on our Facebook page if your not already part of the group.  

So till next time Happy Crafting and have a wonderful day.

Lily in Christmas



Well good morning to you all.  Today is my day for inspiration.  This is the card that I did for our Monthly Theme over at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Challenge.  Our Theme is "Christmas".  I do hope you will come down and play along with us for some great prizes. This is the link for you to go to the blog for the challenge here.

With this card I wanted something different and found in my stash this Mulberry paper that a friend gave me a couple of years ago.  It is a bright red and that is what I was looking for.  I decided to tear the edges to give it a bit of a shabby chic look and then tore the edges of the paper as well.  I had a small piece of gold mulberry paper too so I tore that to put under the read for a splash of color.  The flowers are from my stash and the sentiment is one I have had sitting in my drawer for years. I don't normally put sentiments on my cards till I use them so I can decide what occasion I want that card for so I knew this was gonna be a Christmas card so added the sentiment.  I love how this turned out but it really is going to be one of a kind because I don't have all those supplies left.  But that is ok maybe the recipient will feel special then.  

I hope you will come join us on Facebook as well for some fun and great ladies and inspiration.  Here is the link so you don't have to go search Here

Till next time you all and happy crafting too.

Inspiration by Linda Hummingbird Iris Flower

Good day to all you wonderful crafting followers.  
Today I am posting for Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamps.  This is week 3 of the month and our DT theme is "Anyting goes" so I did this beautiful image called Humming Bird Iris Flower.  What a wonderful image to have to color.  
You can find this image at the Esty shop here .

I used my copics to color her and then used an Martha Stewart Punch for the side of her.  I originally did both sides but didn't like the look so I cut one off.  This is a side step card as I couldn't decide what I really wanted to do with it.  The vine die cuts are an new die from Darice that I got while on vacation and just now using for the first time.  I really like it, but it is a corner die and I cut it apart.  I do that with a lot of the dies as they can be more versatile for you to use more then one way.

I would like to invite you to play along with our Challenge blog to win some wonderful images by Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamps.  If you use one of her images you get two chances to win, but if you don't have any you can use what ever you have to have a chance to win one.  The Challenge blog is here.

We also have a challenge on Facebook for you to enter as well.  I hope you will come and have some fun with us and let us inspire you.  
Till next time Happy Crafting. 
Linda
