Elf Bell Final Card

So yesterday I showed you Card #2 on this my personal blog and Card #1 on the OCS DT Blog.  Today I have the final Elf Bell for you.  This little mousy is coloured with brown tones, I think I like the warm greys the best.  I do have a new favorite colour combo..that being the BG70's...they are awesome.  Up till now I had not used them too much...but they are for sure in the fav's pile as of this moment!

Come check back with me tomorrow....I will have another card for you...but not a mouse!!



Elf Bell Mouse - Card #2

This is my 2nd Elf Bell Mouse from Whimsy card...#3 is coming tomorrow, but you can see #1 on the OCS DT Blog today HERE. I wanted to make some cards for my daughter's teachers and actually finish them this year. I always end up pulling cards from last year's stash because I perpetually leave things to the last minute...does anybody else do that? I really don't colour a lot of animals. I don't know why perhaps it's just because I love to colour images of people. Oh well I'm going outside the box for 2012..I'm getting a jump start now!! On each of the three cards you will notice I coloured the mice with a different set of colours, I'm not too sure which one I like the best. But I am practising with the mice because I want to get going on some House Mouse stay tuned for those.


This little guy is coloured with Copic's using the following colours.

Mouse - C6, C5, C4, C3, C1

Bell & Hat - BG13, BG11, BG10

Ribbon & Hat - R85, R89, R83

Ears, Hand, Tail & Feet - E00, E21, E11, R20

Misc. Supplies - I loved the new Notables Sentiments and matching Noteables 1 from Whimsy, patterned paper is Winterland from Fancy Pants, I used the Burnished Velvet Technique to complete the background behind the mouse with Cranberry (Winter Collection) & Ice Blue Glitter Ritz. I also used the Spellbinders Beaded Circle and Standard Circle dies. Oh yes I also through in some Ultra Fine White Flower Soft, Kaiser Craft Snow Pearls & some misc. Organza ribbon to finish it off.

Don't forget about the OCS Blog Challenge this month, we have a great stamp set up for grabs called Be Jolly from Our Craft Lounge. You can find the challenge HERE!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to let me know what you think...please be kind!!



Bye Bye Boy....Happy Birthday!!

Okay so who thought I wasn't going to post another card anytime soon??? Ahhhh but here I am!! I actually have several cards in the hopper ready to post for you all over the next little while. So here's my thought...I figured that if I could get a bunch of cards ready to post, while I kept making more, I might actually be able to post on a regular basis.....let's see if this little brain wave of mine works!!

This is a card that I made last weekend for my Godson's 1st Birthday. We bought him a convertable stroller/tricycle was pretty cool. So when I scouted the store for the right image this one from Stamping Bella called Bye Bye Boy pratically jumped off the rack at me.
