Ton of Love

I'm sure you all will be glad to see I am back to posting just one card at a, too.

This card was for the CAS310 challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

This valentine will be for my four year old granddaughter. I wanted to send her a ton of love. So, Ellie the elephant was the perfect image for that. Some people on Splitcoaststampers said she has a heart tattoo.  Ha

The little dots are just remnants of paper from something I die cut or punched..can't remember which.
I colored with Copics.

Stamps-High Hopes/Ton of Love Ellie
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-paper dots, Copics

A Bird, Christmas, and a Jumbo Tiger Lily

I'm going to finish up my posts that got left out while I was away. I have three today and then I'll be back to posting as I make my cards.

This card was for CAS305 on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to welcome the new year.
I almost never make new year's card and this is a bit different from the usual new year's card. I did add a star at the bottom for fireworks....hmmmm........

I colored with Copics, added a shadow, and some snow made with my DecoArt snow writer.

 My next card is a Christmas card made for the January Christmas Fan Club Challenge/SCSCCJan15.

I colored  the image with my markers and then colored the trees in a bit with green, used my DecoArt snow writer for snow and added some glitter.

And, my last card is using a Jumbo Tiger Lily. It was made for Splitcoaststampers TLC518 challenge (try a new technique) and WT516-use beads.  The new technique was to stamp your image in white ink on white cardstock, then emboss and color. That was really fun and I'll probably do that again.

I did cut off the stem from my stamp because the image was too large for my 5 x 5 card if I used it.

Stamps-Stampendous/Jumbo Tiger Lily, JustRite/Just the Right Words
Paper-Bazzill white cardstock
Accessories-pink sequin, Copics, beads from bridal dept. 
I'm sorry for the long post but I'll be back to normal posting now. My next post will be a valentine.

Calm and Wintry, Poinsettia, and a Winner

 I'm sure most of you are aware it is Groundhog Day. I sure hope Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow so warmer temps and Spring will be coming sooner. :-)

I'm still trying to catch up on my posts from when I got behind. I so enjoyed making this card and made three. I rarely make multiples but I was having fun with the snowbanks. Besides this one, I needed a couple of birthday cards. With each one the snow looked different. You just need some curved paper and sponge just above it. It took some practice for me but I am pleased.  Hope to get
better each time I try. The trees were hand cut and I used a snow marker for the falling snow. My card was cased from this card:  
Isn't her card beautiful?

This card was entered into a Splitcoaststampers challenge:CT1214. That is the Fan Club central theme for the month-Calm, Cool, and Collected.
