Much Happiness

This is a card using another wonderful image from Mitzi (Aurora Wings). I am entering it into the Anything Goes Challenge and the Birthday Challenge on the Facebook Group Page. This image reminds me of Spring and the Cherry Blossoms.

I printed and colored the image with copic markers and then created a frame using two Spellbinders dies. I ran the top panel through my cuttlebug using a linen Impression Plate and I fussy cut the Kanji symbol for "much happiness". I colored the background with a light and dark blue Twinkling H2Os. I also added a tiny adhesive sparkle to the flowers in her hair.

Although I originally made this as a birthday card, I think I will give this one to my husband as a "just because" card. Not too long ago he had taken a business trip to Japan and he really enjoyed the people and culture.

Monochrome Abi Ballerina

I found a new challenge where I can put my copic markers to good use. The stamp company is called All Dressed Up and this is one of several really cute images called Abi Ballerina. It happens to be a freebie and can be found HERE.

The challenge was to create a monochromatic card using one of the All Dressed Up images. I have to give credit to my daughter for this one because when I showed her the image I had colored using E41-49, she told me it needed some pink - and she was right! I went over some of the image with R11 and loved the effect.

I stamped sheet music on a piece of cardstock and inked the edges with some Tea Dye ink and added some pink glass glitter in spots. I sponged some of the ink around the edges of my image as well and mounted it onto a die cut and popped it up on my base with some foam dots.

You can find the details of the challenge HERE.

I hope you are having a great weekend. The weather is finally beautiful and I am so happy to be able to have the windows open and enjoy the fresh air, after I take some Claritin of course.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - Abi Ballerina (digi); PTI Background Basics: Sheet Music
Paper- Sweet Blush and Fine Linen

Stardust Birthdays

I made this card using a digital image from Aurora Wings. She is running two challenges - one on her Facebook Group Page (Birthday) and one on the Challenge Blog (Anything Goes) - and this card fits both.

I printed the image twice on a piece of cardstock to create a top and bottom border. I then colored with my copics and added some yellow glitter to the center of the flowers. I used a die to cut out my sentiment and then pop it up across the middle.

I am trying something new. For those of you who use Pinterest, I have created a picture (above) for you to pin that includes the copic markers that I used. I have always tried to list the markers I use because I cannot tell you how many times I see a color combination I like, and the person hasn't listed the colors he/she used. I tend to color from lightest to darkest 99% of the time so I list my colors in that order. As usual, if you ever have any questions about how I made something, please don't hesitate to contact me by leaving a comment here or emailing me directly at cibglazer(at)gmail(dot)com.
