Let's Have a Laugh!!!

Sounds like an excellent idea!!!! The challenge this week over at Simon Says is to create something humorous or witty or a play on words.  I decided to pull out this cute Kraftin' Kimmie stamp "Sarah Shopper"  this is what I like to think when I go shopping.  I'm really just supporting the economy .... It seems like a plausible theory!!!

Anyhow I stamped the image on copic paper with memento black ink and coloured it with copic markers (E0000, 000, 01, 02, 21, 23, 25, 27 - N1, 3, 5 - BG70, 72 & 75).  Then I paper pieced all the shopping bags with different patterned papers.  I edged all image and greeting & patterned papers (from the Bo Bunny Alora collection) with agean blue versa magic ink. The greeting is stamped with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink and popped it up with 3d dots.  For a little more detail I added some bling and brads.

I planned on having more projects to post over the last couple of weeks but as usual life doesn't always go as planned.  I had a few unexpected things happen and then I decided to completely redo my craft studio.  I will have some pics to post soon.  

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting everyone!

Something New!

Hello everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!!!  I know ours was fabulous but very chaotic!  I have made a few resolutions for the new year and hope to be able to stick to them.  One is to find more time to spend in my craft room and update my blog more often.  This week I spent several hours in there...cleaning!!!  LOL!  I did get it organized and spent some time in there crafting.  I decided to try the Simon Says challenge this week...Something New.  That means
New Year, New Job, New Baby, New Crafty Stash, New Home, Wedding ( new life) Retirement ( new life) ,, etc ,,,,  !!!  

I decided to go with new crafty stash.  I got a few new stamps just before Christmas and haven't had a chance to ink them up.  The stamp is a "I gave you my heart" gorjuss by docrafts.  I bought three of these girls ...they are just so cute.  I stamped the image on copic paper and colored it with copics (W1, 2, 4- N1, 5, 7 & 110 - E0000, 000, 00, 01, 21, 23, 25, & 27 - R00, 02, 05, 22 & 46 - B95)  I also used spica gold on her bow and a sakura clear glitter gel pen on the heart.  The patterned paper is from the Teresa Collins "you are my happy" collection (also new).  I edged the papers with versa magic chalk ink wheat and pink grapefruit.  I cut the greeting piece out with the MFT Dienamics Tabs quartet dies and stamped the greeting (from the cc designs Amy R stamp set "All about Mom") with versa fine smokey grey ink and edged that piece with color box creamy brown chalk ink.    I used a prisma color marker  PM-6 to color the rhinestones, I noticed they were a little crooked and fixed them after I took the picture :).

Well it is quite late and I have to work in the morning, so that's it for now.  Have a great week everyone ... Happy 2014!!!
