A to late to enter Cute Card Thursday

This is the card I made last weekend using the sketch from CCT.Unfortunately I haven't been able to post it until now because I tweaked my back at work on Monday and Couldn't manage to sit comfortably at the computer long enough to post it. Fortunately a few trips to the massage Therapist has done amazing things and I can now sit! I'm hoping I might even be able to sit long enough to make a card this weekend.

I used Basic Grey Wassail papers and a stamp from Stampavie from the Gillian Roberts Collection. I used a Martha Stewart Border and corner punch set to make the snowflake Border.

The image is coloured with copics R27,R89,G99,G85,G82,E000,E02,E95,E74,E40,E44,E53,Y21,E37,E35,E33,E31,E95,E00,E21

Hope everyone has a great weekend-Hugs Tania

Tilda has gone Skiing!

This is my weekend project. I thought I'd have a little fun with skiing Tilda and a couple of my background stamps to create a cute little winter scene in the form of a stair step card. I just love creating scenes for my cards. I think its my favourite technique although the colouring takes a long time, its so worth it.

I used so many copics for this that it would take way to long to list although I have a new idea on how to show them which I will try next post.

Hope everyone has a good week, thanks so much for stopping by your comments mean so much.-Hugs Tania

Magnolia With Lantern Card#2

No gremlins in the camera tonight so I can finally post this.

For this card I used the sketch from last weeks Mojo Monday. Its to late to enter of course but I really wanted to try it anyway. I used a different size than I normally use for this card(5x7) its getting so hard to find envelopes for the square cards and this size seems to work well for the Magnolia's so I will be making more.

It also uses more of the traditional Christmas colours which I don't normally work with but I like it. Copic reds are a little more difficult to work with and get the highlights right, but I'm learning a little more each time I do.

Thanks for stopping by today. As I make more Christmas cards I keep getting more ideas so I will keep them coming -Hugs Tania

Tilda With Lantern Easel Card

I've been waiting to play with this image I stamped from a friend for a long time and I've really been having fun with it! This is the first card I made with it, I really like the Melissa Francis DP with it. I had a copic list for it al made out but unfortunatly its up on my desk and hubby is sleeping...

I added lots of snowflakes because as many of you know i just love them and added the sentiment from Penny Black. Hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving. Will hopefully be back tomorrow with the second card. I couldn't seem to upload it tonight seems there's Gremlins in my camera playing a few tricks on me.

Thanks for stopping by-Hugs Tania

Stampavie Cutie!

I had to save my favorite card from the retreat until last. I just love this stamp! I was so excited when I bought until I stamped it and realized I'd never coloured anything like it before, it was a little intimidating. I think it turned out okay though. The paper is Bo Bunny, Stampavie Stamp-Laurence Design, colouring is with copics.

Hope everyone has a great week, thanks for stopping by- Hugs Tania
