The Pitcher

As baseball season is winding down, I thought this card would be an appropriate share. I colored this super cute image called Pitcher by Saturated Canary with Copic markers.


The image was cut out with the Lattice Rectangle die by Spellbinders and adhered to a SSS Slate card base. I added a little Wink of Stella glitter marker to her uniform, lips and eyes.

I originally colored this image as practice in the Online Card Classes Copic class and had not intended to make a card from it. But she was too cute not to display. The next time I color this image I will definitely tone down the pitchers mound and grass so that the girl is more prominent.

Here are the Copic color combos I used:

hair: E50, E55, E57, E59,, E08
skin: E21, E30, E31, R83
eyes/lips: B32, B24 / R83, RV17
uniform: R83, RV17, 0, W00, W3, W5
baseball: W00, W3
shoes: E21, W3, W5
dirt: E00, E21, E33
grass: G14, G20, YG25, 0

Happy TGIF!!

Glowing Candles

Hello! Todays card is for day 13 at the OCC Copic class.  I used the Memory Box die, Glowing Candles, for my image, coloring it with Copic markers and a clear Wink of Stella brush pen. I inlaid the die cut into the front panel and popped it up on the card base. For my sentiment, I cut the "peace" die from the Wet Paint Holiday" set by Papertrey Ink 5 times, glued them together for added dimension and adhered it to the front panel. Easy-peasy card!


Here are the rest of the supplies that I used.
cardstock: Neenah solar white /  My Favorite Things Kraft
candles: Y000/11/15, YR23, BG10/11/13/15, N0
flame: Y15, YR16/18
leaves: YG25/97, G28/29, N0
berries: R46

winnie & walter and simon.....oh my

Its "share the love" week over on the winnie & walter blog and they are sharing it with Simon (of Simon Says Stamp, of course). Day 1's challenge was to create a rainbow color palette project using SSS and w&w products.

Here is my card:


The "happy" sentiment is from winnie & walter's The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamp set.  I blended distress inks through the Peppermint Stripe stencil by SSS, cut the front panel down and popped it up onto the card base. Under the panel is what I call the over blend - the ink that went outside the stencil and lines up perfectly with the stripes of color. I finished off the card with some white thread, iridescent white sequins (Darice), matte black faceted crystals (Prima) and a silver heart sequin (Pretty Pink Posh).

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Happy Birthday Sunshine

My share today is a card I made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge. The challenge is to  use the negatives leftover from a die-cut to create a background. I used the cover plate from the Stamp-a-Faire 2014 Ancient Rome set.


I did a wash on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper with Distress inks (squeezed lemonade, mustard seed and ripe persimmon) and using the negative pieces from the cover plate, created a mosaic sun.

The sentiments are from 2 PTI stamp sets - Butterfly Dreams and Phrase Play #1. The colored card stock is called Canyon Clay and is from PTI as well.

The remaining supplies I used are Ranger gold embossing powder, Pretty Pink Posh gold heart sequin, Versafine onyx black ink and VersaMark ink.
