Pink Elephant Color Challenge

I decided to try out The Pink Elephant Color Challenge this week. I thought no better time to try it when the challenge is to use your favorite color. I am in love with green and orange right now. Here is my card...

...I used one of my stamps from Pink Cat Studio (Lily at the Beach). I colored little Lily with my Copic markers!!!

Here is a close up of Lily!

Give this challenge a try...how easy is it to use the colors you love!!!

Happy Camper

Here is the card I made for a friend of Seth's to thank him for letting us borrow his camper for ICOO kids camp.

I used the Quickutz 2x2 dies...camper and goosebumps (squares)

On the inside I made a pocket to hold the gift card!

Today was the results for the Paper Craft Idol contest. I did not make it into the top 20 put check out the top 20 here. Some very talented people!

I am sorry that I do not have a card to post today. I have been at the ICOO kids camp for about a week and half. Fun times..but not able to bring all my cardmaking stuff.

The PaperCraft Idol contest will announce their top 20 on Monday. There was over 1000card entries! It would be such an honor to get picked.

Birthday Cards


Paper Crafts is holding their annual PaperCraft Idol! I entered these two cards. There are some outstanding cards in the competition.

This card was made with the Quickutz cupcake 4 x 4 die! I used embossing paste with glitter mixed in for the icing! (Thanks Sue for showing me the embossing paste)

This card was made with scraps and a Stampendous I used my Copics to color the cat and cake.

I think I might try and add a few more cards to the Idol contest before the due date of June 22nd!

Happy Birthday to Casi!!

Forgot to tell my sister HAPPY BIRTHDAY in my earlier post!!!! Happy 24th birthday Casi...love you!

Copics, Cards, and maybe a Class

It has been a few days since my last blog entry! So I will make this one pop!! I have some cards to show you and a cute picture of Seth and our nephew! I have been throwing around the idea of having a card class at my school next year once a month. I have heard from people that they would attend! I was thinking of making 4 or 5 card a month and have a theme. I would charge a flat rate for the class.

I have really been selling my cards at school. It feels so great to hear someone say that the card they sent to their friend or loved one really made them happy!!! Well on to my pics...

Seth and our nephew Ryker! Ryker is obsessed with tractors. He loves to come to our house because we have two big tractors, a bobcat, and a lawn tractor!!

I am tutoring a young lady who is in seventh grade. To help learn about cm to mm, I had her make this card. She really enjoyed herself!

Lily at the Beach from Pink Cat Studio.

These are my new favorite card making tool...COPICS!!!!! They are so wonderful and really make it look like you did not even color your stamped image!!!
