Bird Crazy!!!

Hello everyone.....

Just thought I would pop by and share with you 
a new card I created with my new 
stamps and dies.....which I might add are 
totally addictive!!!

I created a side step card and used 3 of the 
birds and some fun accessories with 
sentiments from High Hopes stamps.


I stamped the images with black ink and used
clear embossing powder instead of black embossing 
powder. I find the black over powers lot of the fine 
detail where the clear does not! I used my chicken 
wire embossing folder for the background and 
grass die to cut out the grass.

I painted the images with Zig Color Clean 
markers and used the matching dies to cut 
them out. I really had fun painting these little 
guys and deciding on the accessories
 to add to the birds and the card!!

The colors of  Zigs I used are.....
071-046-053-900-031-036-024-029
052-023-070-032-069-060-072

This is the tutorial for the side step card I used.

Have a great day 
and 
Thanks so much for stopping by....

Halloween and Christmas

Hello everyone......

I have a couple of cards to share with you
today....a Halloween and Christmas card.

For my Halloween card I am using the adorable
"Pumpkin Buddies"
I embossed the image with black and painted
it with Zig Color Clean markers. I cut it out
 and layered it in front of the haunted house
which was created with a cuttlebug folder 
using Tim Holtz Kraft Core Metallic paper.
After embossing I sanded it a little bit.
I embossed, painted and cut out the bats and
attached them to the ribbon with foam tape.
The background paper is from Bella Blvd.

The Zig markers I used are.....
023-070-071-043-094-091-010-095

*******************

My Christmas card was created using
"Snowman Snowball"


I am using the Kraft core Metallic in
the copper color for this card. It was difficult
 to get a good picture because of the glare
from the cardstock. Love the look of these
papers though in real life!! I embossed the
image in black and painted the snowmen
with Heavenly H2o's. I used all the brown 
tones of Tombow markers for all the rest.

Hope you like them!!

Have a great day 
and Thanks for stopping by.....
