#1882 Reindeer Silly



Well Hello everyone out there in Blog land.  It is a beautiful sunny day here in Sunny South Florida.    I hope you are all enjoying the great fall weather.  It will be turning cold soon and I will be basking in the sun even the cooler weather we get beats the Snow some of you will have.  (I hate Snow)  
Well last time I posted for Sandra Caldwell Stamps I told you I would have a secret to tell you so stay tuned at the end of this post you will find out what that secret is.  
Now on to the wonderful image for release this week.  This is a great way to get your Christmas cards done or started if you haven't yet.  He is one of the most adorable Reindeer's I have ever come across.  I have the perfect person for this card.  So without any more waiting here is "Reindeer Silly" by Sandra Caldwell. 

Well here is My Reindeer Silly.  He looks so forlorn like Santa forgot to take him on the Midnight run for Christmas.  I just love Sandra's stamps and love that they are digital, my favorite kind of stamps.  I am getting a good start on my Christmas cards how about you?  I love to make my own and not buy the ones in the stores.  I have sold a few that I have made so I keep on making more.  
I colored him with Copics and found these little embellishment in some of the brads I bought at a garage sale.  They are perfect for him.  I wanted to keep this one pretty simple as it needs to be sent in the mail to my brother in law who is a Mail man LOL  
So come on down to the Esty store and checkout all the wonderful Images Sandra has to offer.  Here is the link to her store , so go have some fun.  
So til next time everyone have a wonderful crafting day.  
 Oh I almost forgot to tell you the secret.  As of December I will be a full time designer for Sandra Caldwell Stamps.  She has invited me to join in the fun here.  I am so excited that I will be doing more and more of her stamps and I can showcase them here for her as well as on the Esty shop.  And I have to Thank Sandra for inviting me to be part of her wonderful team.  So there is my secret and now all of you know as well.

Pretty Lady Image 608

Well good morning to you all.  Today is my reminder day for you for Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge.  
This week it is anything goes.  My image is Image 608 as you see in the title and you can find her in the Esty shop for Sherri  Baldy here.
Now when you go there you will have to fix yourself a cup of coffee or tea or something to drink because yo will be spending some time looking at all the wonderful creations that she has come up with.  Believe me I an never there less then an hour or more.   She has so many different images to choose from and some of her newest ones for Christmas are just so adorable, I know you will love them.  Ok now for my card. I colored her with my copics and then I this new die cut that I won  and love it so had to try it out.   She fit inside it perfectly so had to use it.  The edges are very delicate.  The die cut is just a bit bigger then the 4.25x5.50 card cut so she had to be put on a 5x7 card.  With so much space to fill I decided to use the holographic paper and make her stand out that way.  The I tried several different corners but ended up cutting my own out of the same card stock as the base card.  Still not enough I added the two red gems.  Once I had all that on I was satisfied.  I like the plain and simple cards some time with out a lot of embellishments.  I didn't put a sentiment on as I am not sure what I will use this one for yet.  

I do hope you will come join the fun over at the challenge here.
You can find us on Facebook as well.  I hope to see you all over there playing along on the challenge so till next time Happy crafting!

Christmas Snoman

Hey everyone you want to go play in the Snow?  Well we have no snow here so I guess you will just have to play without me.  LOL  Anyway today I am posting the is wonderful image from Bugaboo for The Festive Friday Challenge over at the Outlawz Challenge site.  The have a new and different challenge each day that you can join in on.  Or you can pic a favorite and join just one or two it is totally up to you.  Each week Festive Fridays has 4 themes to choose from.  You get to pick which one you want to do .... This week as Christmas is fast approaching I decided to do the Christmas theme.   I seem to be getting closer to getting my cards for Christmas done.  
Anyway this image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is just wonderful.  I cut him out to look like he is coming out of the card.  I really wanted to keep this one simple as it will go through the mail and at Christmas it is harder to send cards if they have anything standing up on them.  I have  had a few that got torn up as I didn't protect the front well enough so Now I make sure they get protected and don't put so many embellishments on the Christmas cards. 
You can find this and many other wonderful images at the Bugaboo website here. So grab a cup of what ever and go spend some time looking around.  
And you can find our challenge here on the Outlawz along with all the other challenges. I sure hope to see you all join in the fun with us.  Lots of wonderful inspiration as well.  Plus we have a facebook page too so come on and join us there as well.  
So til next time happy crafting to you all.

#1921 Little Christmas Elfie



Good Morning everyone.  Today I am posting for Sandra Caldwell Stamps. 
This little lady is called "Little Christmas Elfie and you can find her in the shop on Esty here.
Please take a minute and go check out the store.  Sandra has  very whimsical art and I love it.  It is fun to color and to come up with the design that I think will go best with the image I am working on.   I am in the process (yes and a little late getting started) with my Christmas cards so this one is gonna be right up there at the top to send to someone special.  I sure hope you like her.  
Now without further ado here is Little Christmas Elfie
TADA
Now isn't she just the most adorable little sparkly Elf you have ever seen?  I know you can't see the sparkle on this image but rest assured it is there.  Her hat is sparkly and I love how this has turned out.  I decided to put the bow on an angle to go with the image. As I said before they are whimsical and I love to play around with different pieces to make them the best I can.   I love the challenge of doing just that.  The gems are another touch that I have never done on top of  ribbon but it just seemed to call out for them.  More magical  for the time of year.  I do hope you like my sweet image and will leave me some love to what you think of her.  
So for now have a wonderful crafting day and see you next week with another wonderful release, so come on back next week for another one of Sandra's wonderful images.  I do hope I have Inspired you to color up some of these wonderful images.  And next time I will share a little secret with you.  So stay tuned.

Halloween

Well good morning to everyone out there in blogland.  What a glorious day we are having here in Central Florida.  I hope you all are having a great day as well. 

Today I am posting for the Design team for Scrapbook Stamp Society.  Our theme is Halloween and and I am reminding you to get your entries into our challenge to win some wonderful images by Sherri Baldy.  She has some of the most beautiful images on the web.  She is a very talented artist.  You can find the challenge here.   You don't have to use her images but if you don't have any and want to purchase some you can go to her  Esty shop here and get what you want.  She also has coloring books for sale as well.  

 This is my card for the reminder and I sure had a good time with this one.  I colored her with my copics and used eye shadow for the back ground color.  I didn't want to make it to dark so that is why I chose the eye shadow.  The little ghosts are some that I got at a local garage sale last year.  First time I have had a chance to use them.  The image is mounted on purple glitter paper but is hard to see in the photo but looks wonderful in real life.  The bow is just something I added as that corner looked bare.  I do hope you like my little witch and she can be found in the Esty shop as well by searching for scan 006.  
So till next time have a wonderful crafting day.

I'M TO CUTE!

Hey Everyone how are you all this beautiful sunny morning?

Things here in Sunny Florida are just wonderful. 
Today I am posting my card for the new release for Sandra Caldwell Stamps.  The name of this beauty is "I'm To Cute"  What a great name for a great image.  She is just a sweetheart and I had a ball coloring her. 
I did color her with copics as they are my go to medium for coloring.  I have done pencils but could never get the look I can with copics.  So here is the sweet Image. 

I really love this image just look at those eyes.  She is covered with my butterflies and flowers for bling.   The background is done with eye shadow as I wanted it to be muted not bold.  I have colored her one other time but didn't like the way she turned out so I redid her and wala here she is all nice and pretty.  Yes we all make mistakes some are fixable some are not.  LOL  Anyway you can find this wonderful image in the Esty shop by Sandra and that link is here.  So I am inviting you to go over to check out all the wonderful images by Sandra as she is a wonderful artist and has images for every occasion so you can't go wrong.  

I would also like to invite you to the Facebook page for Sandra and come join the fun if you haven't already done so.  You will meet wonderful crafter's and see fabulous creations for inspiration there as well .  How can you go wrong?

Fall Leaves

Good Morning all.  Today is my day to post for Festive Fridays from The Outlawz Challenge.
We have 4 themes you can choose from and you can find them on the challenge site here.  
I chose to use this sweet image by Bugaboo Stamps.  They are our sponsors for each week and you can find them here to find this sweet image if you want this one to play with.  
I colored my image with my copics and cut it out with a die cut  then I inked the edges to make it stand out.  I cut a few small leaves to put on as embellishments.  The small ones on the image are part of the cut outs from the die cut if you notice you see they look like leaves so I used them on the image  as embellishments.  I hope you like my card and will come play along to win some sweet images from Bugaboo Stamps.   
So till next week have a happy crafting week.

Autumn

Well hello everyone.  I can't believe it is October already but it is still pretty warm here in the sunshine state.  It won't start getting cool till later this month.  And I sure am looking forward to some cooler weather as it has been a long September with the hurricanes.  I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to Halloween.  

Today is my chance to Remind you of the Challenge going on over at Scrapbook Stamp Society.  You can find the challenge here in order to join and I do hope you will hop over and take a chance to win some images from Sherri. 
She is a wonderful artist.  She has thousands of images to choose from.  You don't have to use her images to join in however.  But if you want to go take a look to see what wonderful images she has the Esty Shop is here.
I colored her with my copics and mounted her on a bright yellow card then layered it with a bright Orange (autumn colors)  then used a Designer paper from Recollections on top of that.  The image is mounted on the same yellow as the card base.  The flowers are from Heartfelt creations and is the classic rose.  I colored them with stampin-up inks and shaped them with the heartfelt creations flower shaping tools.  I used glitter glue on the edges for some sparkle and the centers are Viva bright yellow.  It is a pretty simple card but love how it turned out.  I do hope you do as well.   
So I am inviting you again to come play along in our challenge this week for a chance to win some images.  

Thank you for stopping by my corner of the world and hope you will leave me some love.  Till the next time everyone Happy Crafting to you all.

My Princess

Well hello all you wonderful crafters!

Today I am posting this wonderful image by Sheepski images.  She was a freebie and I fell in love with her so had to color her up right away.  I also have printed her a couple more times, one to use on a different card and one for my coloring journal. 
I was approached by a fellow crafter to come join in a challenge at a new Challenge Blog and that is called CREATEFUL HEART DIGI'S & DESIGN. And you can find them by clicking on the name.  So I said sure let me get one of my newer card up on my blog and I would be happy to join in.  I would love to see you come along and join the fun as well.  I love new blogs and love to support them.  They give digi images as prizes and who doesn't love digi images.  Please read there rules before you play.  It is an anything goes challenge which I like as well. 
 
Now on to my card.  This is a 5x5 card and is colored with my copics.  Basically all I use these days.  I mounted it on some cheesecloth and put some lace on one side.  The flower is by heartfelt creations and is the classic rose.  I used stampin-up ink to color it and the center is Yellow Viva pen.  I added some glitter to the flower but you can't really see it in the photo.  The gems are from Recollection's by Michael's.  I don't normally put a sentiment on my cards because I wait till I need a card then decide what to use. 
 
So I do hope you will come play along with us and until then Happy Crafting to you all.
 
Linda
