Christmas Cards a Week - This Week

Here is my Christmas card this week,
I used the MFT BB Cool Days Stamp set again.

 I used the snow pen for the first time on the last card.
It was a little tricky cause it was runny, 
but I think I am getting the hang of it.
Perhaps I used a little to much on this card .... 

The snoe effect, I love.
I did put a bit of wink of stella on the fur on the hat.

Stay tuned for my Christmas card next week,
If you decide to play along as well let me know and share your card with me!

A Christmas Card a Week

I have been following a blog for a long time.
It is Theresa's Crafty Creations.
you can check it out at this link:

Theresa makes a Christmas card a week
(usually 2 of the same design) all year long.
When it comes to the end of the year she has most of her cards done.

This year I gave away a lot of cards as gifts, 
so I would like to take up Theresa's card plan.


The first week I made a pop up card but botched the sentiment 
and didn't realize it until a friend pointed it out.
So I completed the task but there will be no blog post.

For my second weeks card I used MFT BB Cool Days stamp.


 I like the idea of using different colours for Christmas Cards.
These cool tones remind me cold, winter
You cant really see but, there is wink of Stella on the snow and it is very sparkly!
 I do have to admit I am very very pleased with the colouring on my scarf!

Here is card number 2, I used the same image but changed up the layout a bit.

 again, I am please with the scarf colouring, not as much as the top, 
but this is the first one I did.
It is had to see but there is wink of stella on the banner bottom layer
and the snowflakes.

Hope on over to Theresa's blog and check her out!

Colouring Crazy!

Hello all, 
well I went a little colouring crazy after getting some new 
copic marker colours.
I love how this collection is coming along.

Once I got started I just kept going over a few days.

I did these a bit ago but am so behind in posting!






Once they were all cut out I started to assemble cards, 
The rest were put in a clear tray on my desk for when I 
don't have as much time to craft.

Just an idea I was experimented with & seams to have worked well.

Copic Colouring Lawn Fawn Stamps

So last month i got new Lawn Fawn stamps & wanted to colour them & 
practice my Copic colouring.

I find the more I colour the better I get, 
I also pic up tips and tricks here and there.

I stamped each of the new stamps a few times
and coloured them with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.





Once I decided which ones I liked best,
I cut them out and put them on an index card the back of the stamp package. 

Hope you liked this idea, 
plese share if you have any other good stamp ideas, 
as I am really just getting into them.

Lawn Fawn Year Seven - The Pinata

As you can see I have a new love for Lawn Fawn Stamps.

Here Year a few cards I made with the Year Seven stamp,
The Pinata - Hope your birthday is a Smash. 

 The kraft background to this card is done with versamark.
I had not used mine in awhile but saw it on pinterest.
I really like the look.

 This background is done in the coordinating colours to the card,'a softer yellow.

This card was dine with tissue tape.  
I may have to get fringe scissors to make more of this fun card.


So much fun, I want to make a pop up card 
or shadow box card with this stamp,

Double M Papercrafting 52 Week challenge - week 2

Time to show you the sketch and creation for week 2 
at Double M Papercrafting Challenge.

Megan has a Facebook Page / Group to purchase 
scrapbooking supplies here in Canada.

If you are Canadian, go over and join the group.

Here is Megan's sketch for week 2

No automatic alt text available.

Here is my take on the challenge

This is Maggie Holmes paper that I got out of a SCT KIT
The picnic in the park kit.
I used Pink Paisley Enamel dots 
and of course thickers.
These photos were take at one of the beaches at camp.

We are blessed with miles and miles of beaches do we name them 
different things so we all know where to meet up.

This is the larges bay at the end of the beach.
known as the lagoon.



We can drive down the road in the truck and make a short walk, 
of often Boyd is all to happy to come along and tote all 
the gear, coolers and swim toys in the side by side.

When all the kids are gathered there are various football games to 
be played in the water.  Here were are trying to catch the ball
to gather points to win.  There is pushing - shoving & splashing involved.

Of course this is my oldest with his puppy.
I truly enjoy the summer months when he is home with me.

Hope you all have a chance to create today!!
