Super Edwin stepping in for Green Lantern…

It’s been a busy Summer for our family birthday wise!  Our youngest daughter and her DH planned a Green Lantern themed party for their son Jace, with a cool invitation and skyscraper table piece she made with the Cricut.  I knew this Super Edwin was coming so I’m just now getting a card made for Jace!

Here’s a picture of the invitation…so cute!  I love it!

The party table with the skyscraper table display… so cool!  Awesome creating Breanna and Eric!  I love the wires between the buildings!

Back to Edwin…a couple side shots. It’s an Easel card with one mini easel add on in the front. Video Tutorial on how to make an Easel card with one add on HERE.  Video Tutorial on how to  make an Easel card with two add on’s HERE. Both are short!

A couple pictures from the side…

Super Edwin is NEW in The Winner Takes All Collection from Magnolia. I inked him up with Memento Tuxdeo Black ink, stamped on Beckett Expression Card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  The Skyscraper circle scene is from LaLa Land Crafts… inked with Distress inks, the ink blending tool and a little copic coloring too. Edwin’s cape is colored with a metallic silver Uniball ink pen.  I made the Green Lantern symbol on his chest with a couple circle punches and a ribbon punch, all from McGill.  The Birthday Boy sentiment is from the Amy R Stamps It’s Your Birthday set.  Smallest skyscraper border is a Martha Stewart edge punch.  The other sky line is a 12 in. Sizzlet border die.

More birthdays coming up! More reasons to stamp and create!  Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate it!

Sugar ‘n Spice Marci…

Another cupcake kind of day!  Marci’s been in the kitchen!  This is Sugar ‘n Spice Marci from La-la Land Crafts, in the store at All That Scraps.com, HERE. So cute and fun to color!

I colored Marci with the E50’s series of copic sketch markers… skin E50, 51, 53… dress,  hair, shoes, cupcake E53, 55, 57, 59. No other colors or pencils or anything.  I used a piece of some old 9×9 Tim Holtz pattern paper… I have a bunch of all the patterns if anyone wants to buy some… I’ll make you a good deal! lol  The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp.  I distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and then edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink (Antique Linen on the words first and then VP) HERE and the Ink Blending tool HERE.   Stapled around with Tim’s tiny attacher.  Some EK Success punches, the flower and border…the leaves are the SU bird/branch punch and the cord through the flower is that paper cord from JoAnn’s.  Hope I didn’t forget anything.

I’m linking up to two challenge blogs…

What’s NEW at the store???  Christine has added Penny Black, HERE!  And the new Bildmalarna’s are so cute, HERE… I have three to color up… I need to quit reading and sleeping!  : )

Have a wonderful Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!  ttul

Sweetheart Marci…

Meet Sweetheart Marci from the NEW Valentine release at La-La Land Crafts, HERE…such a cutie and I LOVE her accordion fold hearts!  I just had to stamp  “I LUV U” on them!

For my card I used some vintage valentine paper from Hobby Lobby…the new key and heart lock die from CC Designs, HERE,  some Martha Stewart Baker’s twine and stamps from two different Tim Holtz stamp sets, LOVE STRUCK and POSTCARD.  The punch around the page set called SWEET HEARTS is from Martha Stewart also.  I edged all the papers with Vintage Photo Distress ink and the ink blending tool, HERE and HERE.  Oh and a little glossy accents, HERE,  on her pony tail holders cuz they’re always shiny!

Marci is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Beckett Expression Super-smooth 80# cover card-stock, cut out and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. TIP: I always cut out my images before I color…that way the edges are always colored and no white shows.

Her hair is the E50’s,  her jumper the B90’s, the reds are R000, 00, 02, 05, 08.

Check out the Valentine Release at La-La Land Crafts HERE… Sugar ‘n Spice Marci, Amour Luka, Darling Marci and Sweetheart Marci.   You’ll ❤ them too!

Caroling Luka and the Sweet Stop Sketch…

Only two more weeks of my DT term with the Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge blog.  It’s been really fun and has strrrrretched and challenged me for using pattern papers!  Korin’s sketches are awesome…I challenge you to make some time (cuz that’s what you gotta do this time of year) and try one!  You’ll be hooked! lol

Today I inked up Caroling Luka from La-La Land  Crafts, HERE,  colored him with copics, some We R Memory Keepers papers, Magnolia Silent Night stamp,  Martha Stewart border punches, Marvy Uchida Holly craft punch, Lasting Impressions teeny buttons,  Me and My Big Ideas gold cord and Printworks new sentiment, D3940 – Grace Hope,   HERE.

Here’s a close up so maybe you can see the cool detail in the holly wreath he’s holding…so cute!

When I colored him,  I did the scribble copic marker ink on my stamp pad lid and pick it up with the lightest color and “like” paint it on…  then warm grays over the top… for example the hymnbook is E07 painted on with R000…fun!  ; )

What to do next?!  I need groceries…oh why do I procrastinate grocery shopping! bah!  I’ll go by sleigh!  The rain turned to snow!   Well, the tree needs lights and decorated too!  See?!  Aren’t you glad you’re not me today! lol  Now, where are those elves when you need ’em!!!  ttul!

Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday and Pumpkin Marci…

A cutie straight from the pumpkin patch!  Pumpkin Marci is from Lala Land Crafts, HERE.  So fun to color…love her shoes!  Always have had a weakness for shoes! Marci is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink HERE on Neenah Classic Crest 80# card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers HERE.   I colored her a month or so ago,  so I’m not going to be real exact on the colors…pretty sure her shoes are the E40’s and the orange is YR12, 14 and 18….can’t remember her hair. Seems like the greens are YG41, 45.  Two Martha S. border punches, the fence HERE and the pumpkins.  Oval Nestabilities HERE.  The word border stamp is from Technique Tuesday,  the corner leaf flourishes and the word Autumn are from Inkadinkado.  The trees in the background are from Kodomo, a wood mounted tree set.

Here’s the Sweet Stop Sketch 75 for today!  Check it out and join the stamping fun!!! The DT is so inspiring with their cards every week!

I know, the sketch police are chasing me! NOT! lol  I didn’t get the shape quite right..oops!  and when I got stopped,  I pulled out my “creative license” again! ugh! lol  I tried,  I did!!!  I really did…but then that 6×12 piece of card-stock was laying there leftover from the last card that needed a green base… so I used it! lol

The challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is “Anything Goes” and over at Charisma Cardz Challenge it’s “Anything Goes”.  Stamp Something Challenge blog is “Fall Colors”  so I’m linking up!

Meet Marci…

Marci with Rose is one of my favorites of this new collection from Lala Land Crafts HERE.  She is so versatile, looks great in ANYTHING, and can be used for almost any occasion!

I stamped Marci on Papertrey Ink white card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink HERE and colored with Copic Sketch markers HERE.  The background stamp is from the Magnolia Fairy-tale collection HERE, also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink HERE and colored with Copic Sketch Markers HERE.  I used a bunch of pinks and greens and blues and the grays are the N0’s.  The little stamp running around the perimeter of the circle is from Technique Tuesday’s Irony clear stamp set.  The sentiment is an old PSX stamp.  The crystal chandelier garland is from Magnolia HERE.  Both border punches are by Martha Stewart.  The background rose stamp is from Printworks HERE, (email/phone Nicole for J1826 Antique Rose Pattern) stamped with Ranger Sea Shells Ocean Aqua dye ink. whew!  did you get all that?!!! lol

Marci’s sweet little Panda is FREE when you buy all 5 of the new Marci stamps!  gotta ♥ that!

I ♥ Recess and the Sweet Stop Sketch…

The option to add to the sketch at Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge blog this Saturday is “back to school”.  I didn’t go with an apple or books this time but another favorite icon/subject… recess!  Lala on a swing is delighted to be all dressed up in her new school clothes and enjoying recess!

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.  Skin, E000, 00, 01 and a diluted R20 & 000 combo.  Hair, the  E50’s,  Dress, the BGO’s.  Eyes, B41, 45.  The paper is from Making Memories, the {note}worthy pack.  The branch from Stampin Up is punched three times and combined.  Flowers are the retro flower punch from EK Success,  the Leone Em Ash Branch and a small leaf punch.  The alphabet stamps I used to stamp the sentiment are from MaVinci.net and called “it’s just my type”.  The little heart is from a PSX little desk set.  I edged the papers with Antique Linen Distress ink and the Tim Holtz ink blending tool.

Challenge blogs I’m linking to… Colour Create,  Pile it on – shapes

discover your place in the SUN….

Lucky from Lala Land Crafts HERE has found relaxing in the pool to be the place to be in the Sun!  Isn’t this a great sentiment?!  It’s new from Printworks.  Order by email HERE or by phone.  E4050 Discover Your Place is the code and name of the stamp.

oh wow!  I can’t believe I’m finally posting this card… I fiddled with it forever and I’m still thinking it’s gonna be classified as a “do-over”!!! lol  Just picked the wrong papers! Last time I used these papers I really liked the card!  It’s HERE. The real kicker is the sketch I started out with and tried to stick to!  I’m tempted to link to it anyway,  just because I tried so hard! lol

The words “relax” and “enjoy”  come with Lucky along with another sentiment.  So fun to color… I used the E30’s and BG0’s for the pool.

Here’s the sketch from A Sketch for You to Try… yeah, if you tip your head to the left…maybe you can see it??? oh and sssstretch your imagination!!!  lol   I get a point for trying! lol
