Project Ninety-eight

Welcome Back!

So I have been having so much fun with my Copic Markers.
I have been just loving them. My poor hubby!

I have been asked what I had to invest to get a base line of colors.
So I went to Dick Blick Art Supplies. If you spend more than $99.00 you get
free shipping. So I bought 21 markers for about 110.00 I made a decision to basically buy
4 markers a month. If I have a Michael's coupon for 40% of 50% off, I will look there first.
If not I order my 4 Markers at Blick's and it cost me around $32.00 with shipping. I really spent time looking around Pintrest and You Tube looking at all the base color suggestions out there. I am
working on skin tones and hair colors now.

OK so on to today's projects. It is for Peachy Keen Stamps Monthly Linky Party.
The rules are to use Stamps from the August release. I loved their release because
it was all about HALLOWEEN!!


So for this I used the following Peachy Keen Stamps
PK-1417 Faceless Zombie Kids 1
     are my Zombie kids
PK-1420 Trio of Girl Ghosts
     are my sentiments .... and I love them to pieces
PK-1419 Cranky Franky
     is my boy Zombie's face
PK-1300 Sweet Innocent Face Assortment
     is my Girl Zombie's Face


I think I used almost all my Copic Colors.
You have until the end of August to enter, the more the Merrier!

Hello Again!

Today's project was so simple, yet so much fun to do.

I love DCWV's papers. So this project is for DCWV Blog's
monthly stack-o-holic sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch we were to use


This was my take on it.

 
I added a little to the center
 
 
 
 
OK so all the papers are from DCWV. I used the Sunday Afternoon Stack.
The only pieces I cut out on my Cricut is the
 
Hearts
Cricut Cartridge Baby Steps
at 1.5 inches and welded a 1.25 heart to get just the outline
then I cut a 1 inch heart.
 
The Tag
Cricut Cartridge Ashlyn's Alphabet
cut at 3 inches high
 
Everything else I cut either by scissors or paper cutter.
All the paper and statement are all DCWV
 
 

Have a Magical Day!

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!
 
Card Basics
All paper is DCWV.
Solid blue cut for 6 x 6 inches
Light blue pattern paper is 5.5 x 5.5 inches
Dark blue pattern is 5.25 x 5.25 inches
 
Snowflakes
are from Cricut Cartridges Very Merry Tags and Winter Lace
I cut them in different sizes.
I then ran them through my Xyron Sticker Maker
and covered them in ice glitter.
 
Snowman
I colored him using Copic Markers B12, B14 and B16.
I then added silver stickles to him. I added some white gel dots.
 
Sentiment
The shape is from Cricut Cartridge Baby Steps
