More Class Sneak Peeks

 Well another busy week is almost at an end and I finally managed to get some time to post on my blog.  I really don't know where the time goes.  Here is another one of my dragon cards.  I just have so much fun coloring this image.  I had a few Copics and decided to add more to my collection, and then some more and so on....well you know how that goes.  I colored this image about a month ago and just forgot to post it.  I can't find the list of colors that I used for this.  I do know that the dragon is colored with Copics and the background is done with Prisma markers.  I did use a little bit of glaze pen on his wings and ear.
Here are some more sneak peeks for my classes coming in March.  The first 2 are for the Birthday card class.

  This one is for the Easter Card class, not traditional Easter colors but hey it's good to be different once in awhile.
This one is for the Spring has Sprung card class.  Emboss resist technique used for this one.
Well I guess that's it for tonight.  I better go clean up my studio (a.k.a Kit's room) or Kit will be upset that she is not allowed in there.  Have a great week end everyone, thanks for stopping by.

I'm totally busy this week...

...and I promise I will update the information on my Valentine cards tonight.  I just have to find the page I wrote all the info down on LOL.  I mentioned that I have the most wonderful hubby in the world right!?  Well we went out on Wednesday and he bought me a bunch of Sweet Pea stamps.  I've wanted these for a long time now.  Here is a picture of the sets he bought me. And below is a picture of the first card I made with them.  I promise to list the copics I used for her tonight when I update the Valentine post.

Here is the update for this card. The copics I used to color her are...BG10, BG15, BG18, E21, E25, E27, E000, E00, E01, R20, RV10 & RV13. The embossing folder for the background is stylized flowers and the bling is from kaiser crafts and the color is blue grey. The greeting stamp is from the flourishes tag line stamp set.

Well I hope I will have a new project to post on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks for visiting my blog, until next time happy crafting everyone.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

I do hope everyone has a day filled with chocolate & happiness.  I have made several valentine cards this year but have not had time to post them. I'm sorry I don't have time to post the details for these today but I will post them tomorrow.  I'm off to buy my hubby something special for Valentine's Day. He is such a great hubby, and I'm the luckiest girl to have him as my valentine. 

As promised here are the updates.  The patterned paper for this card is by Cloud Nine Design from the Sweetheart collection.  I cut the hearts out on my cricut using gypsy wanderings. I put double sided tape on the paper before I cut them out.  I then covered them with rose copper glitter by glitter ritz and colored one with a  rosebud memento marker to make it a slightly deeper color.  I used spellbinders small & large labels to make the pieces for the greeting.  The Happy comes from the flourishes tag lines stamp set and the Valentine's day comes from the All Night Media Celebrations stamp set. The greeting was stamped with worn lipstick distress ink and the edging was done with pink petunia versa magic.

 The colors on this Love card did not show up properly.  The card base is almost the same red as the "Love" and the hearts on the paper are a deeper red as well.
I used gypsy wanderings to cut this out with double sided tape on the paper, then covered it with fire red glitter.  The patterned paper is from the fancy pants love birds collection.  I colored the bling with a crimson prisma marker.  The base for this card is a dark red.
 This is Peter's valentine...shhhh don't tell him, he hasn't seen it yet :)

Peter really liked his card :)  The image stamp is by bombshell stamps.  I colored her with copics and cut her out and attach her to the card with 3d dots.  I did a little bit of paper piecing on her bikini top.  More glitter pieces from the cricut, I used rose copper glitter and colored it with a brown memento marker to deepen the color a bit. The patterned paper is from the basic grey porcelain line.  The "all i really want is" is also from bombshell stamps.  Copic colors E000, E00, E01, R20, RV10, RV13, Y11, Y13, Y14 & BG10.

The patterned paper for this card is from the basic grey "two scoops line", card stock is dark rose & cherry vanilla.  The middle piece is covered with double sided tape and micro fine warm highlight glitter by glitter ritz.

The red & white check paper is from best creations sweet love, the other red & white piece is a stamped piece I made using basic grey flourish stamps & fired brick distress ink.  The embossed piece was done using d'vine swirls embossing folder.  The love stamp is from crafty secrets "cherish" set.

Well I think that covers most of the details for these card. Thanks for stopping by.

More Sneak Peeks

So I am busy trying to get class samples done and here are a couple of more sneak peaks.  These are from the Birthday card class I will be teaching in March at Scrap Arts.  The first card is a sliding pop up card and the second uses a bit of glossy accents.  I will post more details once I have the class schedule ready.

Last spring I got a new desk and redid my studio.  I thought with a bigger desk I might avoid having a messy desk every time I made a card.  No such luck, this is my desk yesterday after I finished making my cards, LOL.  It is clean now but, I am headed back in there to make some more class samples. 

And here is Kit helping me pack up for a class.  You can tell by looking at my desk I really like to color, tons of markers and watercolors.
I hope to have some more to post this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Sneak Peek!

This has been a very busy week for me. Three classes, garage sale and work I really only had one day off. I haven’t had much time to get in my studio and do anything. I really need to get started on my Valentine cards.

I am also working on three new classes for March & April. The first is a spring themed card class. They will have a variety of greetings. I will have a few other greeting stamps available so people can choose a different greeting if they want. Here is a sneak peek at the first card. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Curio Line. I got my new set of spellbinders yesterday and I plan to use it a lot for this card class.

I will post the whole card at a later date.  Well I guess I better get back to work.  I will post more previews just as soon as I have them.  Thanks for stopping by!
