(Here is my ds who asked me to take this photo of him with the halloween baskets - just in case you wanted to smile)
I'm so excited because I got the new Ultimate Pen Storage from Crafter's Companion and got most of my alcohol markers loaded up in it on Sunday. I have a few more Copic markers and my Tim Holtz pens that didn't fit so I ordered a couple more racks to put them in. Look at how cool it is!!
It's not a great photo but I couldn't wait to share with you!! LOVE them!! (the racks I mean) I cleared off a good portion of my scrap desk and I was totally motivated to color and scrap! So I made a couple of cards. I've really started to get down to business with making my Christmas cards. Have you? If you haven't you are missing out on so much scrappy fun I pulled out three sets this week (yes, I said 3! lol) and stamped out my main image from the Strawberry Kisses - Cuteness stamp set. This darling little dog was just calling my name!! lol And he was so much fun to color!!
(Here is my card sitting next to some Christmas trees I made last winter. If you are interested in learning how to make the trees you can check out the tutorial on MY BLOG)
So, I colored my image with my Spectrum Noir markers and added a little Crystal stickles to the dog tag for some sparkle. Then I used the Angel Wings & Fancy Things Embossing Board and embossed the larger bell around my colored image. Then I fussy cut it out. Here are the markers I used to color all of my images.
Finally it was time to put the card together. I layered some complementary papers from my stash on to a card base I made out these same papers. Then I added a bit of ribbon to the top of my bell and some double sided adhesive squares to the back. I put the colored image on my layered papers, and used a black pen to add a bit of faux stitching around the card. To finish things up I stamped my sentiment from the Mulberry Wood - Sent with Love stamp set directly onto my card base and added a couple of green gems. I think I'm going to enter this one in the Come and Get It Challenge.
What do you think? Like it? I do. While I had my bits and pieces of paper out on my desk I decided to make another card. I used a Humphrey stamp for this card and I can't remember who makes the sentiment I used. I even took the photo of the card next to my Christmas trees again!! lol This card came together really quickly. I'm going to enter it in the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge 170 on The Sweetest Thing blog.
I think that I have written enough. I bet you are tired of being here!! lol Thanks for stopping by and looking today. Until next time...happy scrapping!
