Mojo Sketch #273

This is the card I have made for the Mojo Monday sketch number 273. I have used a digital image from Tiddlyinks that I have coloured with my Copics. I was going to say that this is the first card I have made without using any products from Stampin Up, but, I needed the ribbon and the pretty in pink for the scallop circle. Here is the link and the sketch that I used. The designer paper I have used is one from Jillbean Soup called Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup. Wow, what a mouthful that was.

Missing in Action (Again)

Oh dear. It seems that I have not been posting anything lately. For Months even. I am so sorry about that. But, it is okay now, I'm back and refreshed and ready to go. So for my first card after my little disappearance is a card using a digital stamp from Tiddlyinks. Check on my sidebar for a direct link. I made this card using the challenge from Stampin Royalty Sketch #156. It has been that long that I have nearly forgotten how to link everything. While I have been away, I have been practicing my colouring with my Copics, and I must say, I think I have improved a little bit.....  :)

Here is the sketch I used. So pop on over to the Stampin Royalty blog and have a look at all the Design Team cards. They are all made with Stampin Up products, all awesome, and you can get heaps of amazing ideas.

Copic Marker Journal Example 2

Here is the second example of my Copic Journal. This is where I can stamp the medium size rubber stamps and list the colours that I have used and where I have used them. So when I upload the file, the spaces where my stamps are will be blank. You can print the form onto copic paper and stamp your own images. This is also a good way to see what stamps you have and how you coloured them. There is also a sheet for smaller stamps, either digital or rubber, and also a sheet for larger stamps, again either digital or rubber. Please leave a comment to tell me what you think, or whether it is worth me uploading the file. Thanks

Copic Marker Journal with Bugaboo

So, finally I have finished my first page (of many) of my Copic Marker Journal. I am hoping to have the document as a free download very soon. The journal currently is up to page 21, so it is a pretty large file. So Bugaboo is having an anything goes challenge, and as far as anything, I think this qualifies. So a very quick explanation. The top section has all of my red markers listed with swatches. The second section has my favourite blends that I use, the third section has some examples of the blends and the fourth section has room for some images that I will stamp at a later date when I get some more colours. Because the stamps I have used are from Bugaboo, and I have purchased these through their online store, I have placed my watermark over the images. These are not on my original copies. Any comments would be greatly appreciated and I look forward to posting some more soon.

There is a direct link to Bugaboo, on the left hand side of my blog under Digital Stamps. Click on the link and it will take you straight to the challenge.

Clowning Around

I made this card this morning using the sketch shown below. Okay. So I rotated it a little bit so as I could use this little clown image from Dustin. I have a few little clowns so you will be seeing a few more of these yet. I am also experimenting with my iPad, trying to take a photo of the card, edit the card and then trying to blog with my iPad. So we will have to see how this turns out.

Steve the Pirate

Here is my take on the Freshly Made Sketches #58 for this week. If you are a Dodgeball fan, you will know all about Steve the Pirate. I wanted to see how this little fellow would look Copic'd. Well, I like him anyway. This is one of the original stamp set I purchased after joining Stampin Up. I just don't have the heart to let him go yet. It is actually quite difficult to create a Clean and Simple card, although these sketches are amazing and help a lot. If you would to play along with the challenge go to:

Dynamic Farewell

So again I have reached the end of another Guest Designer spot. I bid a fond farewell to the Dynamic Duos Designer team. Thank you so much for having me.

I thought I would end on a little Digi Stamp from Bugaboo. (The links are on the left hand side of my blog). This little fellow is called Edward. I have also gone with Basic Grey for my neutral instead of my usual Crumb Cake. So pop on over to the Dynamic Duos Challenge and have a little play for yourself.

Farmer Clem

So, I would like to introduce you to Farmer Clem. He is just the cutest farmer around. The stamp is one that I purchased last Friday, and I am entering him this week in the Colour Throwdown combination listed below. It seemed to be the right choice, as I had no idea that these colours would end up being the ones for this challenge as I was adding colour to Clem.

Dynamic Duos Week 3

So, it is now week three of my Guest designer spot with Dynamic Duos Colour Challenges, and I must say that I have had a ball. This card was made using the Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black with an option of die cuts. Well, I have used all three here. Pop on over and have a look at what the other Design Team have created. You will be blown way with the talent.

Guest Designer Week 2 Dynamic Duos

Okay, so only I would schedule a post with no content. So sorry for that. Here is the second card I have made for my Guest designer spot at, using the above colours of course. The stamp set is one of Stampin Ups, that I have only just received, and must admit, love it. The stamp is called Topsy Turvy Celebration. Cool.

I have finished yet another Christmas card. I have used the colours above through the Dynamic Duos colour challenge of Cherry Cobbler and 'Gumball Green', as my choice colour. I am going to link this card to the challenge blog, which you can find here dynamic-duos-22-mix-match-week. So this card is made up of everything Stampin Up, as per usual. Only twelve more Christmas cards to go.

Harvest Time at Bugaboo

Wow, it has been so long since I have used Blogger, everything is different. I hope this post works the way it is supposed to. So Bugaboo is having a challenge called Harvest time. I had previously purchased this little fellow, although never found a place on a card for him. This seemed to be the perfect opportunity to just that. So here he is, pumpkin'ed up and ready for business.

You can catch the challenge here: its-harvest-time-at-bugaboo

Woohoo, thanks Bugaboo. I win 4 free digital images from Jodi. Off shopping I go.

I have used the stamp set Bright Blossoms from Stampin Up and the colours shown above.

Saturated Duos

Well, I guess this post is pretty self explanatory really. I have made a card using the above colour challenge from Dynamic Duos as my colour guide. The digital stamp is from Saturated Canary, just the name says enough. Awesome. I have a few of these digital stamps that I will be bringing to life over the next few weeks. Pop on over to and have a look at all the amazing cards using the same colour scheme.

I have used Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Whisper White card with matching designer papers. The stamp set is from Stampin Up and is called Best of Everything. Pop on over to create with Connie and Mary to see all of the other Designer cards.

A Wish for Peace

So for this colour challenge, I decided that I would make a non traditional (male style) christmas card. I used the colours as shown below being River Rock, Basic Black with a hint of Very Vanilla. For the shading of the image (it looked a little bit plain on the card) I shaded it with my black stampin up pencil, just to give it a little bit of character.

Welcome Christmas

Here is a card I have made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week. Their designs are amazing for creating clean and simple cards. Love them. So I have used the retiring Welcome Christmas stamp set from Stampin Up, and the new designer papers, gumball green, Cherry cobbler, Very Vanilla card stock and a few little pearls to finish off the card. Another Christmas card to cross off the list. Woohoo. Click on the link below to go straight to the challenge site for some amazing cards using the same sketch.

Sneak Peak Designer Paper

I made this card using the Stampin Up build a stocking punch and the NEW designer papers that WILL be available on 1st September. Not long to wait now. I have used the Gumball Green paper and ink to co ordinate with the Designer Paper as well as Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler. I am also submitting this card for the SU Only challenge (Designer Papers) and Pals Paper Arts sketch for this week.

CCMC214 Colour Challenge

Well, this card was made using the colours on the colour challenge above. (Almost). There were a few colours that we in Australia don't have, so I improvised a little bit. This card is my third in the Guest Designer for Creating with Connie and Mary for August. Stay with me, there are only two more to come. Pop on over to create with Connie and Mary and have a play. They really do have some amazing cards on display.

Welcome Little One

Here is the card I made this morning, still practising with my copics, getting a little bit better every time. I used the colours from the Dynamic Colour Challenge and the sketch came from Freshly made sketches. I have posted the two links below. Such fun we have. The digital stamp came from Mayzy Arts. She has some amazing art work. Although I do not have a direct link, you can google the name and the links should come up. I will re post the information for you when I find it though.

CMCC213 Sketch Challenge

For my second card for August Guest Designer with create with Connie and Mary, I chose to use  the stamp set Lovely as a Tree. The sketch above is what the card is based on, and proved to be a little bit more challenging than I first thought. I have gone with the regal colours, almost an (Autumn feel). It is so cold here in Australia, I probably should have used Summer colours instead.

Heartfelt Birthday Wishes

This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favourites at the moment. I made this card using the above colours from the Dynamic Duos colour challenge which includes Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi. Awesome colours together, but without this challenge, I probably would not have put them together. The stamp set is Pedal Presents, the sentiment came from Fabulous Phrases and the colouring was done using copic markers. So that is about all I can say about this card, other than I will be using it as a class card in the near future.

Winter Fairy Christmas

This card, I made for two reasons. The first reason being, I love this stamp. It is a wee stamp called Winter Fairy. The second reason, is I am entering it into the Pals Paper Arts colour challenge this week.
Oh, I cant wait until our new catalogue comes out so I can use some of these gorgeous In Colour papers. Not long to wait now.

Birthday Bike

I am entering this card into two challenges this week. The first being Stampin Royalty and the second being Freshly made sketches. I used the stamp set from stampin up called Pedal Presents, the colours shown below (almost) and the sketch below.
