Not only was the theme enough to motivate me to "hop" along this month- but, I got some new rubber last week that is perfect for this hop!! (Confession time- Halloween is NOT my thang!!  I am afraid my that fellow Angel Barb just hit the floor, after all she is the Halloweenie Queenie!! LOL)

Flower card

Do you remember the BRIGHT cupcake card I posted earlier this week? (If you need to refresh your memory just click on  "BRIGHT cupcake card" it will take you to that post.) Well, I followed my own advice and made 2 cards while I had all the supplies handy. Just because you use the same supplies doesn't mean you have to do 2 identical cards. =)

The only things that are identical one these two cards are the designer paper, colors of cardstock and the placement of the sentiments. I changed the image and swapped the mat and card base colors.  I also used different sentiments- the one you see here is from the Brighten Your Day stamp set by TAC. I really love the inside sentiment used on this card- Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord Himself exulting over you in happy song Zephaniah 3:17
Seriously, how can you read that scripture and NOT have a brighter day?!?!
 The flower was colored using the feather technique with my Copics. I used my Magic Matter on the Raspberry Fizz, I don't know why I don't use that little gadget more often. The Corner Chomper was used on the edges on this card too, I like how it softens the corners. (Did you notice on the designer paper I only rounded 2 corners?)
Stamps- TAC Little Bird (in the Serendipity magalogue) and Brighten Your Day, Flower- Hero Arts
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper- designer paper-Delovely, cardstock- Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf
Misc- Copic markers, Magic matter, Corner Chomper

Hair by Copic

I have been taking Copic coloring classes this year at my favorite local scrapbook store, Pizazz It! Scrapbooks. In our most recent class we worked on coloring hair. Coloring hair is pretty similar to coloring anything else, but I did pick up few pointers. I find it easier to start with the darkest color when working on hair, and use the feather technique instead of the small circle strokes. And Copics do not cover gray... sorry you are on your on there. LOL
Once I had my hair colored with the Browns (E31, E35, E37) I went over them with an orange marker (I think it was YR21?)
Just the browns on this one.
Same browns here too, just more of the lighter shade. 
I am working on some projects using some new rubber, I can hardly wait to share them with you!!

Cheery cherry

I really like how this one turned out. I saw something similar somewhere a few months ago, Possibly in the Paper Crafts magazine? ( I have looked and can not find it now, sorry to the talented creator.) Anyhoo, I used the supplies I had on hand to come up with something close. I would have never thought to use the punched strips in the same color as the base layer. But, just look how cool it looks. =) Oh, and I used the Labels 8 Nestie under the punched circle,  I like the "custom" label those two create.  (Yep, you knew I pop dotted the circle...... because I ♥ pop dots. LOL) The cherries were colored with Copics and then the highlight was added with a white pen.
Well, this one is heading out to the mailbox.......

Whoa, that is one bright card

Yea, I have a BRIGHT card to share today.  This card reminds me of the recipient- last year for her prom she wore a lime green and hot pink gown with hot pink high top tennies. LOL She is just that kind of girl!! LOL
The front of the card was cut almost in half before the image was attached.

Here you get a peek of the inside of the card. When the card is closed the verse is hidden by the cupcake, but you can see the sentiment in the lower right corner. (Didn't I warn you this one was bight?) =)
Thanks for stopping by!!

Howdy Cowboy

I am working on Vacation Bible School follow-up. We had 20 boys and girls become followers of Jesus Christ during Bible school in July, I found some booklets I want to send to them, so I needed some cute cards too. =)
Our theme was Saddle Ridge Ranch- so what could be more perfect for my cards than this cute little cowboy?!
(He is from TAC's Wild West. Sadly he was retired in June.)
 Because I needed 20 of them I kept them pretty simple. The kraft cardstock gives the cards a "rugged, well-worn" feel. I used white cardstock for the image, I love how that really makes the image "pop." I used a boat load of Copics  to color the image. (Not really a BOAT LOAD, just a boat load according to my hubby. LOL He may tease me about how many Copics I have adopted- but he is the reason I have so many!!  He is the biggest enabler!! LOL)
Ok, enough yakking about my little card, so here it is......................
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
