Project Ninety-two

Hello Again!

I am going to explain why I am so excited for today's post.
I love stamping, I have used my pencils to color. A year or even longer I went and bought
some of these "Copic Markers". I have seen some incredible coloring with them.
I was doing a Mickey Mouse stamp, so I bought black, red, yellow. I thought
that was all too it. I colored my stamps but was never like that's so wonderful.
SO I went back to coloring with pencils, and then sort of stop stamping and stuck
to my Cricut.

I love Peachy Keen Stamps. I go to their blog often, OK, I check it on a daily basis. The design team
amazes me every stamp release. I used their "faces" stamps on my die cuts all the time. I would use the sentiment but never the actual stamps. Mine never looked like the DT ladies images. I drool over them. I have been a member of the Stamp of the Month club since ummmm, January. I have used the faces and sentiments, but never the stamps. Well almost 2 months ago, my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday. I told him to color like the Peachy Keen Ladies, as I call them. So he encouraged me to go to the Copic's website and try to learn more. So I went to the website, and boy did I learn. Like did you all know the numbers actually mean something! That you blend with them! YES!! So I ran to You Tube and started watching some basic lessons with Copic's. So for my birthday I ordered 21 markers. Hubby was so good about it, heck he was impressed you could refill them.

So today, image is for Peachy Keen Stamps' July Linky Party!
You must used only stamps from this month's release. So here goes, my first time showing my coloring that I can smile at. I love it!! I BLENDED!!

I know I only colored his scarf and hat but I love it!

Project Eighty-seven

Hello again! I am honored you are here.
For today I am making a simple graduation card for my niece. She recently graduated from a technical college and earned her Pharmacy Technician Degree. It is the first step in her world. My husband and I so proud of her. We can't wait to see what God has planned for here.
I am also entering this into Bitten by the Bug 2's Graduation Challenge
I really love their challenges. So let's get on with the project!


OK so what girl doesn't love Hello Kitty! Heck I am over 40 and I love her.

Card is a 6 x 6 inch card ... a little bigger than I normally do, we wanted space to write a message and
     leave a small gift with it. The paper is DCWV (of course LOL) from the Natural Stack.
Stamp is from Cricut Cartridge Ribbons and Rosettes cut at 5.75 x 5.75 inches. The paper is DCWV
     from the High School 8x8 stack. I just took my red Cri-kit pens to add the dots and lines.
Sentiment is from Cricut Cartridge Hello Kitty Font. I used the text box with font size .3 inches and
     letter spacing at 0. I then used my Cri-Kit pens to doing the writing. I love these pens!

Hello Kitty
She is from Cricut Cartridge Hello Kitty Greetings.
The shadow is cut at 4.5 inches the paper is DCWV High School Stack
Kitty herself was cut at 5 inches. She is Hello Kitty #14.
I cut everything out then I used my small Xyron sticker maker and "stickered" the font of the gown
     and hat. I use this technique so I can glitter the images with out all the wet glue look. What girl
     wouldn't like a glittery pink cap and gown. I would have! Then I used gold on the tassel.
The paper used to make my kitty is all DCWV.

Total side note, I am in love with the new monthly or if you want yearly subscription service from Cricut. I use the Craft Room and I love it! I suggest you try it even just for a month. SO many choices now!!

Have a magical day!

Project Eighty-six

I have spent most of my last few days getting ready for Father's Day. I have three girls and one dog, plus my father lives with us. SO between Father's Day cards for Hubby and my dad it has been crafting days. My girls pick out what cuts they want. Help me pick paper and they handle putting the paper on the mat. Once it is all cut out they finish it off. So I had to help each girl make a card for daddy and grandpa. I had to make cards for the puppy to give her dad and grandpa, which I do for her. Plus I make a card for my own dad. SO this is the card I made for my husband for our puppy. Don't forget we had fur babies before kids. So she is his original princess! Our Lady turned 13 this year and has been having some health issues so I am afraid it might be her last Father's Day Card.

This is also a challenge piece for Bitten by the Bug 2's Father Day Challenge.
You have till June 15th to enter so pop over and give it a try. They are addicting, in a good way!

So my hubby loves video games. Well so do I! So I saw this cut and thought it was perfect.

Base is from Cricut Cartridge Wrap it up cut at 5 inches high
     the paper is DCWV Alphabet Stack.
I then cut out the handles and added the top control part. I then used Stampin Up Real Red to
     highlight the edges.
The sentiment if the font from Cricut Cartridge Baby Steps. I used my Cri-kit pens. I love these

Have a Magical Day!
