Warm Winter Wishes!

I had so much fun making this poinsettia card that I decided to make another!  I changed it up a bit this time and added even more gold embossing!!!  Can you ever have too much gold embossing...LOLS!  This one is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Warm Winter Wishes"

I used all the same items to create the poinsettia, I just changed up everything else! 
When I first put the card together it didn't have the gold embossed design on the side!  The card seemed to be missing some detail so I added it at the end.  I think it just needed that added detail to complete it. 
 The greeting was die cut using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Word Script dies and then I embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Ultra Fine Gold embossing powder. 
Products used for this project!
Poppy Stamps Blooming Poinsettia Die
Copic Markers (R22, R24, R27, R29, G24, G28 & G29)
Simon Says Stamp Ultra Fine Gold embossing powder
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Word Script Dies
Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes stamp set (lovely swirly detail on side of card)
Patterned paper from the Saint Nick 6"x6" paper pad by Fancy Pants Designs

I think that's all the important details for this card.
Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting everyone!

Another Card!

I had another image almost ready for another card and actually managed to finish it tonight.  So I can enter it for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes". The great part is the image & greeting are both from a Wild Rose Studios stamp set, which is the product they are showcasing this week.

The stamp set is called Winter Cottages, I stamped the image with Simon Says Intense Black Ink & colored the image with Prismacolor Premier pencils!
This isn't the world's greatest picture, but it's late & I want to go to sleep, LOLS!

Thanks for stopping by!

Almost forgot to post this for the Anything Goes on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  I have been busy doing the Daily Marker 30 day challenge and making lots of pieces for cards.  When I checked what the new challenge was last week I decided to put together some of the pieces for another Star Trek themed card.  I posted it on my Instagram for another challenge and forgot to tag it for the Simon Says Challenge as well.

So here we are with my post from Instagram with a few more details!  I made the galaxy background with distress inks, shimmer watercolor paint & Copic opaque white paint for the stars.  I edged it with Silver embossing powder by Ranger, also did the same for the greeting!
Kindred Stamps - Space Explorers set for ship & greeting
Brutus Monroe - Luck Star set for planet & asteroids
Copic Markers  used to color ship (C0, C2, C4, C6, C9, Y0000, Y19, YR18, YR24, YR26 & YR27)
Prismacolor premier pencils for planets & asteroids

 Also, Canada Post is hard at work getting all those delayed parcels delivered.  My other Simon Says Stamp order arrived on Sunday...I was so surprised & happy 😊
I can't wait to get some of my planned projects under way!
Guess that's all for tonight, thanks for stopping by!

Gift It!

Well this challenge was perfect timing!  I ordered a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp back in September & I finally got it last week!  This is the bookmark I made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge for this week. 

This bookmark might not make any sense to anyone else, but trust me the person I made it for will love it!  It is a combination of a bunch of her favorite things.  I'm even tempted to add a little more to the back, which is just covered with patterned paper at the moment.

I made the pieces at different times, I was waiting for the Newton's Nook TeaRex stamp to arrive to complete this project.  I will add a list of supplies used tomorrow.  I have to find the rest of the info hidden somewhere in my craft studio,  this could take a while LOLS.
Partial supply list
TeaRex stamp & die - Newton's Nook
TeaRex colored with Prismacolor premier pencils
Otter Stamp & die - My Favorite Things
Otter & Water colored with copic markers (W1, W2, W4, & W6, fish YR02, YR04, YR07 water BG70, BG72, BG75)

Oh and in case you were wondering, here are all the goodies that I got in my order!  The mail has been on rotating strike here and this order & Kit got mailed out on the 18th of October & I finally got it on the 27th of November!  I can't wait to make some other stuff with all these great new products!
I had to pass on the December card kit, I figured it wouldn't make it here until January (and I'm sad because it was filled with some fantastic goodies).

Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting everyone!
