Merry Christmas Skelekinz!

Anyway my first few entries in the blogging world were  of cards made using Bugaboo stamps so I thought it would be fitting to use Bugaboo stamp to start up again. Actually the first digital stamps I owned were from Bugaboo and I was hooked immediately.

This cute Christmas image is from the Skelekenz collection. I love the fact that even though it is a Christmas digi it also kind of fits  Halloween as well. I colored it using copics and embellished with  drywall tape that I heat embossed in silver. I then added some corrogated cardboard, ribbon and black brads to finish it off.
Sentiment is from Stampin 
 Thank you for the visit!

Best Wishes Every Day

 I colored this sweet Saturated Canary digi image"Pups and Me" using copic markers. Then I used Tim Holtz distress ink around the image using a mask to keep the eyelet edge white. My faux stitching on the edge is far from perfect. ( I think I need new glasses) You can't see it well but the designer paper  "Boho Chic" is full of glitter & sheen so I kept my embellishments simple with bow and flowers.

Just Heard the News

What a fun digi to work with. This little paper boy is another awesome image from Mo's digital pencil. When I first layed eyes on him, you could say he was calling me, Ha! Ha! The image  was colored using copic markers.
The lamp as well as the clock was cut on my silhouette cameo with glossy accents added for dimension and stability. I decided to use a few of the silouette prints and cut them out on raggedy edge  mats for my background. The card base was finished with a strip of drywall tape, I just felt it needed a little texture.

I just printed off a very simple sentiment so that I could use the card in a number of different ways.

Come in for a Spell

 Digi from Mo's Digital Pencil was colored using copics. Love the image and thought it would make a great clean and simple card and the larger image makes  coloring much easier as well. Isn't she inviting? Ha! Ha!

The only added feature is the faux stitching done on my Silhouette Cameo.

 I never seem to get tired of Mo Mannings lovable character Mummu at Mo's Digital Pencil. It always cheers me up. As a matter of fact whenever I hear the song "Happy "by Pharrell Wiliams the first thing I picture is this digi. She would have been great in his video don't you think? Tee! Hee!

The image was colored using copics. Center step card and mats were cut on my silhouette cameo. Gems, feathers, corners, butterfly and doily were added for embellishments.

Love & Happiness

 I just think it makes a very cute card.  I personalized it by putting the couples name in the little rectangle under the digi. (Sorry I had to block that out )   The stamp was colored using copics. 

The cardstock I used is pearl shimmer paper that I embossed  on my cuttlebug. The double hearts were cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 


To embellish I used Viva pearl pen on necklace,
 Inksential glossy accent on tux collar and pockets and  a  gelly roll glitter pen to the dress trim. The center of the cut out hearts were filled with glossy accents with two added gems for extra bling. Tulle ribbon  was tied around the card and tied in a  bow to finish it off.
Inside sentiment is from Stampin Up!
