I had a question about envelopes that I forgot to answer. No I do not make my own. I am fortunate that my LSS, Paper Pickle sells envelopes in a variety of sizes but my hands down favorite envelopes are Paper Source. They come in every size imaginable in a wide range of GORJUS colors and are a nice heavy paper. I won't lie, they are a bit expensive but if I've spent an hour colorin' up a card I want it presented in a nice package! It is my MUST go to store whenever I am in Chicago. They sell online but I have never ordered from them so I have no idea what shipping charges are. If you are lucky enough to live near a store, I am envious!

It's a beatiful day

Yup, the weather here in Chatham today couldn't be more perfect. It's sunny, not too hot, just a hint of a breeze, NO humidity...i could just wallow in it all day. Bessie seems to have the same idea 'cause she has been laying out in the sun all morning. I've still got some flowers to plant but we are heading to Windsor today for my nephews First Communion so they will have to wait one more day.

I have another Stamping Bella flower card to show you today, this one is called Wildflower Trio. I tell ya, if I had a nice huge piece of property I would have a field of wildflowers! Actually, we live next door to a field that is school property and has a ball diamond, soccer field and tennis court and I have been real tempted to throw some seeds out there! It would be so pretty I can't imagine anyone would mind. For my wildflower card I used pencils with just a bit of gamsol and although I am not a purple person AT ALL I'm loving the Basic Grey Wisteria paper. Maybe it is that soft blue grey in it that is drawing me in. Did you know that there are also matching brads? I don't have them....YET...but I will. Those Basic Grey brads are STUNNING! Lastly, no card is complete without adding a bit of Glamour Dust with my Quickie glue pen!

Well, short post today....gotta go shower and get ready for First Communion. Have a wonderful day, and I hope the weather where you are is as pleasant as it is here.

It is the 'F' day!

I'm home from Hamilton and after writing up this post last night I snuggled up on the couch with my fur baby. I missed her and worried she wasn't feeling the love while I was gone. But the men took good care of her and the meds she is on seem to have her back to her sassy old demanding self again, even though she is still favouring the leg. Now, it's gonna be difficult to keep her quiet and calm until the surgery.

It was another sketch challenge over at Emily's blog this week and I'll admit, I'm really liking these sketch challenges...! This week I decided to use Bluebell Bittybloom and color her up all pretty in was a perfect color choice so i could use the Think Pink sentiment. I followed the sketch pretty closely and don't think I cheated at all! Now I can't be 100% certain, but I am pretty sure I used copics in the following colors for her dress...R81, 83, 85, y00, likely a grey...probably a T3 to add some depth. The basket was done with E40, 41 42 with a small bit of E44 for shading. Shading was done with pencils and of course I cut her out with my rectangle Spellbinders nestabilities and added glitter with my Quickie Glue Pen and Glamour Dust. To finish it off, I used my fav EK Success Dotted Scallop punch and pulled out some Bella Cotton Candy Bonbons. As I was linking up here, I noticed that there was at least one new EK punch on the site and I think I feel the need for a little retail therapy coming on!
That's it for today, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Everything you wanted to know....

As promised, here are answers to those questions you've been asking:

Where did I learn to color?
I've always liked to color...ALWAYS. I did take some lessons when I was quite young but that's about it.

Will I ever have a copic class?
Not likely, only because my schedule is too full to fit it in. My advice is to find someone you like, 'study' their work and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE....and let loose and experiment. It's only paper, try something different, use unlikely colors together, layer colors to achieve new colors. It's only paper and if it looks like crap...throw it out and nobody will ever know but you . And I guarantee you will have learned something from the experiment.

Will I ever do tutorials?
Again, not likely, but there is soooooo much out there already that I have learned from I don't think I could say it any better myself...I would say right now THE best site I've seen out there is Copic Creations. It is like the best of the best and include links to other fantastic posts. Great tutorials, suggestions on color combinations, challenges and some fantastic PDF downloads. I HIGHLY suggest this site!

How do I tie my bows?
Kristina Werner has the best videos on you tube...I learned from the master and you can too!
knot tying:
bow tying:

Sketch or Ciao?
It makes absolutely NO DIFFERENCE at all. Get the ones that are in your budget, or the ones that you can get your hands on. I started with an entire set of CIAO's, because they were in my budget, but since then I have filled in the gaps with Sketch because Sketch comes in every color and CIAO only comes in a subset of the entire color selection.

What color did I use?
If I know it, I'll post it. Problem is that I never keep track of the markers used...but if I do remember to keep track, I'll definitely post them for you.

What are copics?
They are an alcohol based marker, not AT ALL like a water based marker like Tombow or Stampin Up. You do NOT use water to blend them. You blend them directly on the paper just with the markers. If you need more information on them, I suggest checking out Marianne Walker's blog. She is the product specialist for Copic.

Prisma vs Lyra? What is the difference?
Prisma are a wax based pencil and VERY blendable, Lyra are an oil based pencil and also VERY blendable. They work exactly the same and I use them interchangeably, but I do find the the led in the Lyra's to be a bit softer. I have a 72 set of Lyra's and a 120 set of Prisma's.

What cardstock do I use?
For copic, I typically use Papertrey Stampers Select White. It is a very heavy paper though and you do use a lot of copic ink to get the paper wet enough to be blendable with your next color. Many people use is much thinner than papertrey and I've just never gotten used to it so I stick with Papertrey. For pencils, anything goes!

I hope this has helped you out! Don't forget, if you have a general question post it in the Cbox is a great little tool and if I don't answer immediately, I WILL definitely get to it!

Love Bug

I'm in Hamilton this week for work so I finished this card on the weekend to have ready for ya. This is the last of my road trip images, it is from the Stamping Bella Huggabug series and this little cutie is called Lovey Huggabug. I think I stamped this one off from my BFF Pauline, for some reason I don't have a lot of these little bugs in my stash. As most always, I colored it up with my copics but I didn't make notes on the colors I used. I do know that I used E0000, E00O, E00 and E01 for the flesh tones and R20 for the cheeks because they are my go-to colors for flesh.

The blue shading was done with pencils and after cutting the little bug with my circle nestie, I left it in place and sponged the VersaMagic Thathched Straw ink around the edge. To finish it off I added some glossy accents to the little antenna tips and the shoes and dotted my quickie glue pen and sprinkled Glamour dust on the wings.

For the inside of the card I used the I just love you sentiment that was stamped on a strip of paper and mounted on a piece that I cut with my EK Success Scalloped Scallop punch. These punches are a dream. They cut so easily, not to mention they are easy to store! I will most definitely be adding more of them to my collection.

Have a good rest of the week everyone and don't forget you still have one more day to play along in this week's challenge! I'll be glad to be coming home tomorrow...hopefully someone is watering my patio pots while I'm gone!

Last Weeks Challenge

Hi Everyone...things aren't settling down for me yet, actually they just got a bit worse today because my girl, Bessie tore a ligament in her knee and it looks like she will need surgery. Now the girl would be my dog...the kids are affectionately referred to as the boys. She is pretty unhappy because she is unable to tear around like she usually does, as am I because I have to leave for Hamilton in the morning for work and won't be home until late Thursday. She'll get lots of TLC from hubs and the boys I'm sure, but it still makes me sad that it won't be me fussing her up. For those dog lovers out there, I'll keep you posted.

The real reason I am here is to show you my card from last weeks Bellarific Friday challenge. I chose Sunday dress for this card because I thought it would fit nicely with the sketch, but unfortunately it is discontinued. So let's pretend I used one of those funky purses instead, K? I coloured this one with pencils and gamsol and added liquid pearls as accents. I also pulled out my EK Success dotted scallop punch. This one is sooooo dainty and I can just tell I'll be putting it to good use. The image was cut with my spellbinders nesties and although they look more cocoa in the picture, the glass pearls are actually white. My camera is really challenged when it comes to taking pictures of blue subjects....either that, or I'm challenged because I'm not sure what setting I should use. LOL!

Since today is Monday Emily has posted this weeks challenge and it is another sketch challenge...YAY for us sketch challenged folk who need a little nudge in that area. I won't post it here on the blog, you'll just have to scoot on over to Em's blog and while you are there you can read up on what the other babe's have been up to.

Finally I've had a lot of questions lately and I haven't been neglecting you, I've just been a bit bogged down here. I'm hoping I'll have a free evening in my hotel room to write up a post and answer all of those looming questions so stay with me for a couple more days....thanks!

Now, I'm off to hug my fur baby!

Happy Flowers!

I thought this card would be appropriate to post today since I spent all day yesterday in my yard planting my patio pots with beeeeutiful flowers! It is a lot of work, especially since I have soooooo many other things to get done around here, but the deck sure does look cozier with lots of flower pots. I also did a bit of weeding but there is still a ton more to do. I don't know what happened over the winter but it is a weed jungle out there!

This is another image that I colored in the car home from Memphis. I only completed the flowers and the pot and left the background until I knew what paper I was going to use. Basic Grey Lime Rickey was perfect so this morning I added the the blue haze around the flowers with my copics and sponged the yellow around the edge with VersaMagic Thatched Straw chalk ink.

Copic Tip: I got this one from Debbie Olson, she is my copic hero and most everything I learned about copic coloring I did by reading her blog and 'studying' her work. So quite a while back she posted a tip about using blue for shading and to make it easier she took a colorless blender and added about 5 or 6 drops of B00 to create a VERY light shade of that color. I jumped right on that and now whenever I shade with blue I use my custom B00 along with B000!

Now for those who are interested, I actually wrote down some of the colors I used on this image. Keep in mind, this is NOT a complete list...but it is a starting point. That is because I was in the car and likely picked up another color of something and did not write it down. Most likely a grey...why? Well, Copic tip #2...i often add depth with grey, I don't usually do that on flower petals but if you look closely at them you'll see in this case I real reason, I guess I just felt like it. So, colors used were: E15, 35, Y11, YR21, 23, G40, YG17 and 67.

To finish it off I cut it out with my nesties, added a nice thick drop of Ranger Glossy Accents to the flower centers and Ranger Crackle Accents to the flower pot.

And there you have it...Happy Flowers!

CPS116 - Gerbera Daisy

For today I decided use the Card Positioning System sketch CPS116...seriously, how could I NOT use it since the challenge is sponsored by Emily herself! Well, actually there are two reasons I decided to use it, 1) I am SKETCH CHALLENGED, 2) I spent all weekend painting my living and dining rooms so there was NO TIME to come up with a sketch myself. Not to mention at last minute on Saturday I decided to drive to Windsor and attend my high school's 80th anniversary reunion. Now, I'm not THAT old, but it has been 30+ years since I graduated high school and I knew that many of my classmates would be there, not to mention my two BFF's who I have not seen in nearly 20 years! Time has been really good to both of them and I hope now that our children are grown and (nearly) out of the house we won't lose touch for that long again.

Back to the card. I used Stamping Bella's Gerbera in Vase and as usual, colored with my copics and shaded with pencils. I did add a bit of glamour dust glitter with my Quickie glue pen to the center of the flower, and you know me, if it looks like it might be glass, it gets a nice thick coating of ranger glossy accents. I cut it out with my long nestie die and mounted it on Basic Grey Marrakech paper. To keep with the challenge sketch I added a row of Bella's dots secured with Micro Dots, the BEST way to secure embellies to ribbon!

Finally, I leave you with a pic of the gals who were (apparantly) always the life of the party at KCI!

We have a saying in our little group at work....

....and it goes like this....DENIED!

I know, I know...for peeps who have been reading with me for a while know we have that other saying...Ohm...but we use this one as frequently, maybe more. So you are probably curious why we use DENIED! Well you know I work in IT...specifically I'm a programmer type. So we have 'clients' who want things changed, or want new things done, or have wild ideas. So if the idea is just too far fetched, or the change they want is not worth the time it will take we just say...nope, DENIED....of course we only use this with people who are generally our peers and we have worked closely with for many years so they are used to it, and we do follow up with a legit reason, but it is our short quick answer when we need it. Since I was the one who 'originated' the phrase in the workplace I was even presented with my own personal 'DENIED' stamp for xmas one year! I love my co-workers!

Now you are probably wondering what does this have to do with the card??? Well, we have had someone on 'loan' to us from another area for a few months filling in for a mat leave and his tenure is coming to a close. We are sad to see him go and he is sad to leave...(but he's not without a job or anything, just going back to his old job). So as a farewell card from our group I decided to use all bummed out baby with the all bumed out sentiment. Inside I wrote "us too" and made a pocket to hold a keychain of 'DENIED' tags with my personalized stamp, just in case he might need them when he goes back to the old job. I don't want him to leave thinking he didn't learn anything from us! LOL!

I decided to use my Lyra's on this card for a change instead of copics because I wanted a softer look. However, I did use copics for the fleshtones...look at that little bum, couldn't you just pinch it! After cutting him out with my nestie, I left the die in place and sponged Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges. It gave a nice rustic look to go along with the Graphic 45 paper.

Now for the girl who is coming back from mat leave who has two little kiddies at home....she might be getting an Ohm card as a welcome back! She'll need it!

Gold and Bling...Oh My!

Well for anyone who knows me, knows that I am not much for bling...I'm more of a Talbots or Ralph Lauren type of girl. So when Emily presented us with the challenge and wanted GOLD and BLING I put my creative self in gear and decided on ASIAN!

Yoko and Ono stepped up to the plate and I couldn't be more pleased. I think I may perch them in my new Zen inspired bathroom and admire them for a while! I bought the October Afternoon paper at Scrapfest specifically with these girls in mind and got to work. I must say when I was colorin' them up I was thinking they were shifting away from my vision but in the end it worked for me. Of course sistah Paula called me AGAIN knowing that I'd be busy colorin' but I think she is actually helping me out...maybe she is sending me telepathic colorin' vibes over the phone lines and she doesn't even realize it! LOL! Keep it up know how I love to hear that Michigan accent of yours!

I colored the girls up with copics, and used pencils for shading. For the bling I used that quickie glue pen with lots of dots to fill in the space and sprinked on some orange colored loose glitter. I cut the layers out with nesties and added a heavy edge with a gold Krylon pen. You can't tell from the pic but I decided to try out Paula's idea of using black gel pen on their hair and it makes it nice sleek and shiny! Great idea sistah!

I hope everyone is enjoying these challenges as much as I am! Now go check out Emily's blog and see what everyone else came up with.

A birthday challenge

Still trying to catch up here and I realized I had not posted my challenge card from last week! I was getting kind of nervous because Emily was late with her post and we were getting ready to leave on our trip so I was afraid I wouldn't be able to play along!

I cut out BEEday Huggabug with my circle nesties and offset the circles...I kinda like the way that looks! The Happy Bee-day sentiment comes along with the image and was cut with a spellbinders ribbon tag because I wanted to run the ribbon thru it. I think those tags are one of my fav's!

Because I was under a time crunch I decided to pull paper first and color second. That way I could save me the time of going thru my hundreds of sheets of paper looking for something to match. I've been doing that more lately, just because of the time saver. I colored the huggabug with copics, but shaded with pencils.

Thinking of pencils...have you seen that Emily is now carrying Lyra's in a set of 36! An affordable option for those who didn't want to fork out for the full 72 set! I have Prisma's and I have Lyra' the Prisma's but TREASURE the lyra's!!! So if you have been thinking of trying them out, this is the perfect set. She's also got some goodies on sale at some ROCK BOTTOM prices, so check those out too!

Tomorrow is another Bellarific Friday so don't forget to check out the blog and if you didn't get a chance to play along, you can still leave a comment for a chance at the peanut gallery bucks!

Back on Canadian Soil!

Although I loved my Dave Matthews spring tour more than you know, I am also very happy to be home and back on Canadian soil...and I'll be staying put for a couple weeks until the summer tour starts!

Vegas was a blast as always...I LOVE everything about that city! The dining, the shopping, the night life, the shows, the star is such a dramatic change from small town Chatham, Ontario. Not that I don't love Chatham, I do on a daily basis..but a jaunt to a big city is always fun! It wasn't enough that I saw my guy 'Dave' two nights in a row, we also spotted Gwen Stefani in the airport! Now, I'm not a Gwen follower and I probably wouldn't have even recognized her (even though she WAS wearing a No Doubt t-shirt) if it weren't for the girls who were sitting behind me and GULPED quite loudly when she walked in. After a long period of staring I decided to whip out the camera and just as I clicked it she was surrounded by her entourage and off she went....I maybe got a sliver of her in the pic...and let me tell ya, that ain't much! Oh well, I've got about a million pics of Dave that I brought home with me! LOL!!!!

Also on this trip there was NO airplane coloring even though I brought along a select variety of copics and some stamped images. The lighting on the plane was just too inadequate and I wasn't in the mood so I watched Slum Dog Millionaire on my iTouch instead! Good movie! On the way home I watched Iron Man...if for nothing else, I watched it just for the Robert Downey Jr. factor! He was THE best thing that ever happened to Ally McBeal! I think I stopped watching TV when that show ended.

So, because there was no airplane coloring I have to pull out an oldie for ya today! I colored Gossipy Stella JUST about the time that Emily asked me to join her group of Babe's. Since I took this pic I did add a row of bella baubles above the sentiment but sadly I no longer have the card to re-take the picture! You'll just have to use your imagination on that. You'll might also notice that I paper pieced her dress which I rarely do. But even when I paper piece I still take my pencils or copics to it to add a bit of shading. CASE! Color And Shade Everything! That's my motto!

I also decided to do something fun to the inside of this card and used the Whussup sentiment and cut it out with one of my nestie label dies and secured it down with a kajinker flower! It turned out kinda cute!

Well, I'll be spending the next few days catching up in my google reader! I've missed what all my fav stampers have been up to!

Glittering Technique

This is a special post for Leslie and fella babe Karen who want to know how I do my glittering 'technique'. I'll openly admit here that I sort of smiled when I read it because it really isn't a technique, there is no special secret to it and when they see this I'm sure they are gonna look at each other, squirrel up their faces and say..."that's ALL she does"...heheheh...but I am quite tickled that it looks so impressive! Remember gals, if it ain't easy, I ain't doin' it...the ONLY exception might be for a really special card for a blood relative!

So here goes....

let's assume this stella is all colored up with the medium of your choice

see those red dots...I use a Quickie glue pen, make sure it running nice and smooth and 'dot' glue where you see all those red dots. The solid red is where I applied lots of dots to fill in the space. Then I use loose glitter. Either Glamour Dust, or any of the other colored glitter that Stamping Bella sells. You can find those here, or here. Most often though I use clear glitter like the Glamour Dust, or sometimes Hero Arts.

And there ya go! All nice and glittery!

Now don't forget about the Bellarific challenge this week. Gold and bling are the rules! For the challenge pic you can check out Emily's blog here.

And if you have a question, don't be shy (although, i'll admit, i AM quite shy myself) and post it in the chat box. What I really like about the chat box is that it is quick and easy and I can check it and post answers to it from any computer as long as I can get to my blog and I don't have to sign on to email!!! Gotta love the internet!

Flower Bottles

When I saw this Flower Bottles stamp from Stamping Bella I immediately thought....MARTHA! They look so Martha to you gotta know I'm talking Martha Stewart...all her beautiful pastel colors that coordinate impeccably with all her other pastel 'stuff'.

If I could decorate my surroundings without the influence of the hubs, I would most definitely live in a Martha-like house. Now don't misunderstand me, the hubs has really good taste, but it isn't Martha-like so as with any good marriage, we compromise and find the happy medium that pleases both our palates. But if our house was big enough for me to have a totally Martha inspired room...I'd do it in a heartbeat!

Okay, enough about me and my Martha obsession. I bought this piece of patterned paper at Scrapfest in Kitchener (sadly, I don't remember what line it was and I only bought one piece) and wanted my bottles to coordinate with it. Copics in blue, aqua, with some purple for some jazz was what I decided on for the bottles, with pink, yellow and orange for the flowers. Of course, to mimic real bottles, I doused them all with some Ranger Glossy accents...if it is glass, it gets glossy accents...that is my rule! I added just a bit of glitter to the flowers and a juicy bow to finish it off. A nice simple image with a bit of ribbon, glitter and gloss adds up to a simple card with a lot of interest!

Thanks for stopping by!

Always room for improvement!

I colored this Underthehoddybella a while ago…like maybe even last year…and finally decided it’s time for her to make an appearance on the blog. The image was colored with copic markers but now that I look at her a year later I decided she needed a bit more. So out came the pencils to add a bit of pink shading in the background. If you look closely you will see there is a hint of grey down the left sides. That was on there from a year ago, I just went right over it with my pencils and softened if off with a bit of gamsol! Perfect! Sadly, I don't think it is as vivid in the pic as it is in person.

The ribbon bow is held down with one of those Basic Grey brads which I LOVE!!!!!!!! And the jeweled flower on the hair dryer is a Heidi Swap jewel that I bought MAYBE 5 years ago. As a stroke of luck it fit perfect into the daisy! A little bit of glitter on her slippers and Ranger glossy accents on the vase and we’re done! No muss, no fuss! The paper is memory box and I’m really drawn to their nice subtle designs. Oh ya...have you seen those Prima Pebbles on Stamping Bella's site? I'm thinking I need those babies!

Thanks for stopping by…In a couple days I'll be in Vegas and will have my copics in hand. We'll see how well I do colorin' on a plane!

I had a request to list the copic colors that I used in the image. I'll try to do that for ya going forward but some of these may have been done earlier so I don't have them to list.

Suck it Up!

You have noooooooooo idea how much I hear this at work!

You may, or may not know that I work in an IT got it, changes as fast as I change my underwear! Quite often we find ourselves having to introduce new technology to the not-so tech-savvy world. Fortunately I don't usually have to do that myself, but I work with a gal who does, and sadly she is leaving that prestigious role for a new job. One of her fav sayings in our weekly staff meetings that go over the course of the last seven days is 'suck it up'. That is what she wants to say to those change resistant folk, but business etiquette prevents she gets it out of her system every Wednesday morning in our staff meeting.

Now that you know the background you can understand why I just HAD to make Stamping Bella's Suck it Up Stella for her departure. The sentiment on the tag on the front of the card was computer generated and composed by yours truly, then I used the 'suck it up' sentiment that came along with Stella for the inside of the card. You might also notice that little Kajinker flower...I seriously love those things and every card I make I pull them out to see it they will mesh in...I think it meshed here perfectly! As usual, I coloured her with copics, shaded with pencils and cut her out with my nesties. What did we ever do before those nesties came along?

Well, that's my story of suck it up Stella! Hope you enjoyed it and if you have any other just 'perfect' opportunities to use her I would love to hear about it...I really think she has a lot of potential and plan on putting her to good use!

Got a Question???

You may have noticed that I've added a little box under my profile to ask questions...I scooped the idea from Paula who I think was clued into it from Meahni. Thanks Ladies!

I sometimes get questions in the comments of my posts but it is hard to keep track of those and sometimes there is no email or blog for me to respond to so I hope this makes it easier.

One last thing on the topic of tutorials. I have been asked about that a few times and sorry to say you won't be seeing any of those from me any time soon. They are very time consuming and with a full time day job, a hobby job of teaching card classes at Pickle and my own crafty time there just isn't enough hours in a day for me to do that. But if you have a specific question, I would be more than happy to help you out if I can.

What a week!

As promised a couple pics from our 'tour'...just look at that face!

So you know that last week hubs and I were on a little whirlwind trip to follow our fav Dave Matthews Band on tour. We started out in Charlotte NC and had a nice dinner and spent the next day shopping before the concert. Headed on to Nashville to see the concert the following night then drove to Memphis to soak in some Elvis and a little blues music. While in Memphis we went to Graceland, Stax Records, Sun Studio and the National Civil Right Museum which is at the location of Martin Luther King's assassination . All very interesting!

For me, no road trip is complete without hauling along my copics. I am so very grateful I bought that new bag for them because it made things a lot easier. Now Mark must have thought I was a little overly attached to those markers because I wasn't really using them but would drag them in and out of the car to every hotel we stayed at! I'm fairly certain he was gonna sign me up for therapy when we got back. That was until the long drive home. I pulled them out of the back seat and got colorin'...hey I had a challenge to do, and what could be more challenging than trying to color little Ivy Ketto in a moving vehicle! You have to have a steady hand and anticipate bumps but it is much more enjoyable than doing nothing. Thankfully we had the sketch all picked out for us, otherwise I may not have got her finished in time. Maybe I can color, but I am most definitely sketch challenged.

Next week...Vegas baby!

Now don't forget to hop on over to Stamping Bella because Emily is offering free shipping until May 4th to celebrate Ryan's birthday. The code is 'happyweek'. Who can resist free shipping? And if you haven't already left a comment on Fridays Bellarific post, better get going on that too for a chance at some Bella Bucks...did you notice she is now handing out 20 of those babies!
