So glad to have All Dressed Up as our sponsor this week!
You will certainly find adorable images to choose from! 
Be sure to check them out!
Here's my card!
Can we say ADORABLE IMAGE??? 
It was so much fun to color with my Copic Markers. I'm not great on dress ruffles but it's ok. I didn't want to add too much to the card to take away from the darling image. I added a colorful background to make it "pop". White pearls are the perfect accent when you can color them to just right shades with Copics. Just the finishing touch!

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
They have great variety of images and die cuts, 
something for everyone
Be sure to check them out!
Here's my card!

Aw, those great little images from Newton's Nook!
This stamp set and dies is AWesome! The die cut cuts the paws open and you can slip in something...I used the cupcake from the set. The die cut edge was from Crafter's Companion. The making of this card is pretty simple, as you can see, but still looks more detailed. 
I colored my kitty with Spectrum Noir markers and the cupcake I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens for a tiny bit of glitz! Add a bit of ribbon and ta da...finished!

So glad to have Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor this week!
They have great variety of images, something for everyone
Be sure to check them out!
Here's my card!
I always love working, or should I say, playing with my Bugaboo images. This little penguin and snowman are so stinkin' cute! Sadly the picture's quality sucks but you can still see how adorable they are. I colored these critters using my Copic markers. I embossed part of the cardfront and added the sentiment as a tag, with a ribbon. I used a silver metallic pen to dot the tag and some mounting tape to complete the tag. Silver mirror cardstock was one of my layers. It certainly adds pizzazz. Again, I am sorry for the poor photo quality...just know it's prettier in person. hehe

Here's my card!
I had so much fun coloring this great little image from 
Sasayaki Glitter! I chose two neutral color themes from
my Copics to color these cutie mice. I fussy cut them out 
and mounted them onto a piece of embossed black cardstock.
I used some crystal lacquer on the heart for a nice POP. 
I added a sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey that seemed like a perfect match with these darling mice!

Here's my card!
I just love this set from Limited Runs and I look forward to using the other images in the set. I printed the pup and sentiment/hydrant image and colored them with Copic markers before I fussy cut the pup out. I went to the internet to find my hydrant background image and printed it out. I glued my layers and the hydrant image together. I used mounting tape to pop out my little Dalmatian puppy.

This was such a cute little cat set from Sparkle N Sprinkle and I look forward to using the other images in the set. I printed the little cat and sentiment and colored the cat with Copic markers before I fussy cut it out. I turned the sentiment into a banner. I torn some brown cardstock to create my hill and ran it through an embossing folder. I pieced my card together and added a couple of die cut clouds. I added the kitty with mounting tape to raise it up for dimension.

Altoid Gift Tin and Crafter's Companion

This is a fun and very easy little 
gift to make. It even can hold a Gift Card. 
Here are the supplies I used:
Image result for altoids      Image result for foil tape
                Altoid Tin                                                Foil Tape
                                                      
                       18kt Gold Leafing Pen                              
               Silver Leafing Pen                      Marilyn Robertson Kimono 
                                                              Embossing Folder - Oriental Floral

                    
                       SC Floral Fantasy Die Cuts - Motifs and Accessories

                  SC Floral Fantasy Clear Stamps - Blooming Sentiments

I began by cutting two pieces of the foil tape. I put the pieces in an embossing folder to create that amazing design for a POP of elegance. Then I took my silver leafing pen and "colored" the edges of my tin. I applied the foil tape to the tin lid. I used some Luxury Mirror and Sparkle cardstock from Crafter's Companion and die cut out my flowers. I used Gold for the outer part of my flower to add some contrast. I made a little banner and stamped my sentiment to finish.

Crafter's Companion Card

I must say that working with the great
products from Crafter's Companion make
my crafting so much fun. 
I was using Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils, Blending
Stumps and Gamsol to color this awesome 
stamped image from the "Time Flies" set.
 Spectrum Noir - Pencil Blending StumpsSpectrum Noir Blending Solution - 4oz Bottle
Working with the pencils is so simple and
they blend beautifully! I added a bit of color 
on around part of the outer image and blended
it out. I added some Gold Spectrum Noir Sparkle
pen to the watch for the touch of bling and 
using a Silver Sparkle pen I gave the chain some glitz. 
I stamped the image an extra time so I could
color and cut out some additional butterflies
to raise up and give the needed dimension.
To finish the watch I used some crystal lacquer
to give my watch face dimension. 
I created my layering using Gold sparkle and
Gold mirror cardstock from Crafter's Companion 
and some black cardstock. Watch for, and shop,
Crafter's Companion on HSN.

Here's my card!

For a perk, I switched the image to the other side
and created my own sentiment, although, I did 
LOVE the sentiment that came with the image. 
You can see it HERE. I colored my image with 
Spectrum Noir Marker and used a SN sparkle pen
and some glaze to bling it up. A couple of layers 
and that pretty much completes my card!
