Where did I go?

It's been weeks since I posted here..2 weeks I think..are you wondering where I went? I didn't go anywhere. I have been shopping for the holidays and decorating my house. Thankfully DZ Doodles and Copic Buzz has given the DT December off for the holidays! I sure needed it! I thought I'd share some of my decorations with you.

Last year I did my tree in red and gold. This year...everything is decorated in red and gold!

First off and most important is my tree!

My favorite ornaments are these..I bought them at Garden Ridge for 2 bucks each!

Here is a window that is cut out in my kitchen.

Yesterday I spent most of the day trying to make a wreath! My first homemade wreath! Cost...12.00!

Here is my nutcracker collection in the curio cabinet!

Here is my snow village!

Here is my table! I still need to make some napkin holders and get some napkins!

And last but not least!
Here are my darling angels I bought at Costco for 10.00! These angels are over a foot tall and so so glittery! They came in a box of 3 for only 10.00 for the whole box. One angel was blue so I didn't put it out! I'm only decorating in red and gold :o)

You have to excuse the tape on the light switch. My grandson love to turn off the computer that is plugged into that switch! So I taped it! :o)

So, now you see why I have been missing! Happy Holidays to everyone!!

Halloween Card Using 5 Copic Markers and DZ Doodles Image!

For someone starting out using Copic Markers it's very easy to find images that do not require a lot of colors. I decided to create a Halloween card showing how you can use just a few Copic colors.

This card was made using only 5 Copic Markers!

Also, since this was the weekend before Halloween I thought I would not only get another of my Halloween cards done and ready for mailing but would also see how many Halloween Challenges were out there that I could enter this card into!

The first Challenge was for DZ Doodles of course. Their challenge this week was a color challenge using the colors Black and Orange. Your creation does not have to be a Halloween card but hey, it's the season right? I still have a few more I need to make - so this worked out perfectly for me!

Lovin the Copic Airbrush!

I recently purchased the Airbrush System from Copic and I'm loving it! I had a hard time finding the right compressor and the right adapter..that part was a nightmare!

I didn't want to spend 200.00 dollars on the one recommended. Hey a girl only has so much crafting money! So I purchased a cheap air compressor from WalMart only to find out I couldn't use it! Ladies, learn from my mistake...Make sure your compressor has a regulator or your just wasting your time because if it doesn't you will be bringing it back as I did. Though, I would have brought it back anyway because it was so loud it sounded like a jack hammer and you'd need earplugs!

So..I researched and found this one!
It's from Home Depot and I adore it. Did you notice? It has wheels! It was so simple to put together, simply attached the adapter hose and turn on...boom! Instant beautiful air!

Now, let me tell you about the adapter. Oh lord! Walmart, Sears, Home Depot and even PepBoys doesn't have it..have never heard of it, has no clue where you can get it!
I finally emailed Sally Lynn McDonald and asked what kind of adapter and where could you find it!
She informed me that Dixie Art has them. She's so helpful! I just adore her!
Ok. so back to my story. So I call Dixie Art and they knew exactly what I was talking about and had it in stock. Problem have to order a $25.00 min. purchase for all online orders. And if you say well I'll order some Copics too..forget it! It's in a different section of their store..They have their store broken up into 3 different stores..and each order from each store has to have a $25.00 min. purchase. I don't think they will be seeing much of my complicated! that I knew which adapter I needed and the name of it. I called Dick Blick..and yes..they had it in stock..only 1..I begged them to save it for me as I live 45 minutes away. This they did! and it was perfect!
If your compressor has the usual 1/4" fitting you will need the iwata 10' braided Airhose. Warning they have 2 kinds! a 1/4 to 1/8 and a 1/8 to 1/8..
Make sure you get the 1/4 to 1/8 and your in business!

So here is my first Airbrushed Card!

The image is from DZ Doodles you can find it here!
I created this card for our Copic Buzz challenge this week. Sponsored by Dew Drop Craftz. The challenge was to use no Patterned Paper.
This worked perfectly with my card!
You can find the challenge here!

Snow Fairy

When I saw this image by Mo I just had to have it. Luckily for me a dear friend sent me a Birthday Gift Certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil Too and I bought it along with 2 other Mo's images!
What a wonderful Birthday Present! Thank you Barbara!

I made the card for our Copic Buzz Challenge - this week the challenge is to color an embellishment with your Copic Markers and use it somewhere on your card. What fun this was! There are so many things you can color with Copics..not just your images!

For this card I colored all of the embellishments! The edge of the button, the pearls, and the ribbon. The ribbon looks a little darker because I put 2 layers of color on it.

You can find our Challenge and details about coloring your embellishments here:

Here is the card:

Wishing you a perfect day

I had a fun time creating this card. I loved the image and had a lot of fun coloring it. As most of you know I am a Copic Marker fanatic! I have been practicing on every tutorial that Marianne Walker has on her blog "I Like Markers".

1) Coloring rocks - Tutorial can be found here:

The theme this week was "Inspired by Nature"... I thought my image was perfect for this weeks theme!

I have made so many crafting friends in this group.

Happy Harvest

I love fall, besides Christmas it's my favorite season. Ok..I know Christmas isn't a season..but I love decorating the house in reds and greens so for me it's a season!

As soon as the weather starts to turn cool I start digging out my fall decorations! I've built quite a few things over the years. I love the oranges, browns and dark greens. Plus my living room suite is rust so it matches perfectly!

I'm starting on fall cards early this year. Like my decorations my list of cards to send to friends keep growing! At least I can say now, I have started!

I decided to use the Card Patterns Challenge Sketch for this card. You can find there blog here:

Digi Stamp from McMahon Five Design

Saturday, August 15, 2009


Before I get to my "Boo" card. I want to share some very exciting news! I filled out an application for a Copics Certification Class and learned yesterday that I had been approved!
Come Oct. 4th I will be Copic Certified! Yep!
I've never grabbed my credit card to pay for something so fast in my entire life!

Ok on to "Boo"!

I created my first Halloween Card this week! There are so many friends I want to send cards to that I decided to get an early start.

I combined 2 challenges for this card.
The first of course was Copic Buzz's. This week it was sponsored by Mo's Digital Designs! She is one amazing artist. You had to use one of her stamps, which by the way I have a bunch of because I adore her talent! For those that didn't have one of her images she gave a free one.

You can find the challenge here.

The second challenge was at the Truly Scrumptious blog. You can find it here:
For their challenge you had to use this sketch and bling!

For my card I decided to use Mo's digi stamp "Bat Cat" I fell in love with this the first time I saw it!
Here is my card:

I printed out an extra image and cut out the mask. I then added some rhinestones, feathers, and glitter and placed it over the original mask on the image.

The copics I used were:
Cat: E31, E34, E25 - After coloring with E31, I went back over and dotted on the E34 to add texture, I then added some darker highlights with E-25.
Pumpkins - YR000, YR02, YR04, YR09
Stems: G82, G99
Mask: YG23 (went over twice)

Monday, August 10, 2009

I created this card for the Copic Buzz challenge. I also created it for my daughter who is in college taking nursing. She has had a very hard time juggling 2 small children and her classes this quarter. She took Anatomy and was receiving very bad grades, stayed up till wee hours every morning studying and still did not pass the class.
I wanted to give her a smile and let her know that I loved her and to not...give up!

Cards using Victoria Case Image - Singing in the Rain

I recently discovered Victoria Case Images. Where had I been? Anyway, as soon as I saw them I fell in love and have been adding them one by one to my ever growing stamp collection!

I created two cards with one of my newly purchased Victoria Case images designed for SCACD.

Here is the first one:

This was for our Copic Buzz Challenge. The challenge can be found here:
Our Copic Marker technique this week was "Hair"

Now for the 2nd card:

This was using a sketch for the Victoria Case Blog Challenge.

The same copics were used for both images. On the card for Victoria Case's Blog I cut out the small flowers and colored them with the technique I showed recently on here on my blog.

Sending a hug

I haven't posted in awhile. We had to go to Rhode Island and when I returned I was so far behind in our Copic Buzz group that I had to catch up! Therefore my own personal blog was neglected!
Here is a card I made this weekend. I am working on perfecting blonde hair, and if I do say so myself it's starting to come together!

I used the new Basic Grey line - Lemonade (Brads were from that line also). I just love their new lines!
Cardstock was Bazzill -
Copics Used were as follows:
Skin - Eooo, Eoo, R20
Hair - E31, E21, YR20, Y11
Clothes - BG72, BG75 (Aqua) - R85, R83, R20 (Pinks)

Hello Card and Handmade flowers made for Copic Buzz's Challenge #2

I made handmade flowers for the flower challenge for the Copic Buzz Flower Challenge. It was so easy to do!
Cut out some flowers and color!

For the pink flower I colored the entire flower with R-81, then shaded in the middle with R-82. Last, I added a few feather strokes with R-85!
Whoola! A flower!

Colors used for handmade flowers:

I also made a card using a Sunflower stamp that I've had for years! The square in the card was cut out using my silhouette!
I colored all the images with my Copics. I didn't have any brads to match my card so I colored the top of the brad with my copics..Worked Great!
Here is my hello card:

Copic Colors I used for the Hello Card:
