So Many Plans

I had so many plans for posting this month but jut never got around to it.  I have been working from home and figured I would have so much time for crafting and updating my blog, I just didn't get it done.
I have been doing  the 30 day coloring challenge and uploading that to my Instagram, so I have been a bit productive!  I now have lots of pieces to use for card making.  As soon as I get them made I will post them here. 
I guess I will still have more crafting time as I will continue to be at home for the next month by the looks of things.  Still hard to believe what is going on in the world right now.  Taking a break each day and doing the coloring challenge definitely helped me maintain my sanity so a big thank you to Kathy over at The Daily Marker for hosting that event.  I believe she is hosting another one from April 7-May 7 if you want to join in for the next round.  I know I will be!  I will probably try to do a few of the challenges over at the Simon Says Stamp blog as well!

For now here are a few of the images I colored this last month!

These little characters are all from Kindred Stamps and I colored them all with copic markers.  I will list the copic colors for each one when I put them on a card.  The blossom piece in behind them , is an old stamp from a company called Flourishes - I do believe this company has gone out of business. 

For this next piece I used the Tim Holtz Mechanics 3D texture fade embossing folder.  This is one of my all time favorite embossing folders.  The picture below it is all the inks I used on the piece.  This was supposed to be for the Simon Says stamp Steampunk Challenge but I didn't get a project finished with it.

I totally plan to make something with this over the next few days. As soon as I do I will post it.  I also mentioned I picked up a few pieces for my craft room a few posts back and one of those items is in this picture.  I finally got the Tim Holtz glass mat for my craft desk.  I am so happy with this purchase and it makes doing many of these projects so much easier and clean up is a breeze!

Well thanks for stopping by, please stay healthy and safe everyone!

Another Card!

Here is another card I made this week.  Since the Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is Anything Goes, I decided I should post this as well.

For the background piece I used distress inks to make the night sky and the moon.   I used a black marker to create the spiral hill.  The cute little characters are from the Kindred Stamps set Holidays are a Nightmare (Retired), I colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out and added them to the card.  

Ok, that's all the details for this card.  I'll be back in a couple of days with another post.
Happy Crafting, thanks for stopping by!

Boldly Go!

I made a card for the Anything Goes challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog.

For this one I made a watercolor galaxy background and edged it and the greeting with silver embossing powder.  The greeting & the ship stamp are both from the Kindred Stamps Space Explorers set.  I colored it the ship with copic markers and then covered it with clear embossing powder to make it shiny!  The planets are done with prismacolor pencils.  Popped the ship up on foam squares to make it really stand out.

Will be back soon with another post.  I have been busy making some cards this week.

Happy Crafting everyone!
