SBS DT: Hot Hot Christmas

Hi Everyone.

I'm a little behind on posting through blogland but I have posted these a few days ago (Saturday 15th) on facebook though the SBS fan page, Kit  & Clowder and Digi galore. So if you have seen these I hope I don't bore you with the same stuff. LOL Just wanted to share a little bit of the process that goes in the way I made my cards.
So here we go. Were to use some Summer 1950's styled beach babes and turn them into Christmas cards. You can buy them singular or you can buy the bundle and I'll share the links with you.

So here is the bundle (4 images and sentiments):  http://simplybstamps.net/item_3000/Summer-Babes-Digi-Bundle.htm

So now to the image I used for the first card:
Summer Time Betty here's the link:  http://simplybstamps.net/item_3004/Summer-Time-Betty-Digi.htm

 I used Copic markers to color her up. 
I also drew my own background and lined it with a Copic multiliner to give it that 
Christmas in the Caribbean/Central America, Hawaii,
or Florida. LOL Anywhere but where I'm at now... where it's co-co-co-cold.
Don't get me wrong I do love to go see the snow and make real snowmen and snow angels and what not... I just can't deal with cold for too long.

YouTube...

This one is Anne '50's Summer Beauty and here's the link: http://simplybstamps.net/item_3002/Anne-50s-Summer-Beauty-Digi.htm
 Same as the previous image I drew my own background except the palm tree... I did add the string or Christmas lights though. This was inspired by Sandy Allnock's Snoopy Video
I used some different colors because I didn't have what she had but the technique was all her idea.
Here's a little process video on Youtube.

Thank you for visiting.

TTPH DT: Thankful with TSC

Hey Everyone!

Just a quick post to show my card for Through The Purple Haze DT. This week we are being sponsored by The Stamping Chef and I'm using an image I bought a whiiiiile back she's called
Leg or Breast? It's on sale for $1.50 since The Stamping Chef also has a monthly challenge on their Facebook fan page. The TSC monthly theme is "Thanks" and the Recipe is Ribbon and Kraft card AND use the 'Leg or Breast?' image. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TSCRecipes/  The image is very sexy. I had a different idea on how I wanted to use her but I went a little mainstream and just made it a 'Thank you' card instead.

So here's my card:

I colored with Copics... and since I was doing Native American skin I tried out different colors
didn't even write them down since I have a tough time blending. I seriously need to practice with more colors. I have like 3-4 combos down and that's what I stick to. LOL 
I Also did some experimenting. I tried to mask the image 
but the black ink started to bleed and paranoia kicked.... argggg! 
When I removed it it wasn't as bad as it looked but still a little bit got messed up.

I used this paper stack I bought like 2 years ago I think. It's called Garden Harvest by Recollections. 
It's Kraft paper mixed with glitter! Well most of the pages anyway. It's cute. 

The 'thanks' die is from the Happy Thoughts Stamp set at

Thank you for visiting.

TSC DT: Oh Deer it's almost Christmas!


Hey Everybody! Good morning!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas... sort of- so I felt like doing a little bit of Christmassy coloring.

I used The Stamping Chef'sFantine Oh Dear, My Deer. (Just click on the links and it'll take you to the shop)

 I colored my image with Copic markers and used a Sakura gelly roll for the eye lights.
The die is from The Greeting Farm
The design papers are from Martha Stewart's Wonderland 12x12 Paper pad
Here's a close up of the digi
Here's a close up of the glittery paper :)
