Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Little Scraps of Heaven Designs is making some changes to their files (on a trial run this month) and the newest freebie set is AMAZING!!  It's got adorable digital papers, digi stamp, colored clipart and a cut file for you to piece.  I couldn't wait to craft with it today and here's what I came up with.



I colored the digi using my Spectrum Noir markers.  The snowballs are coated with liquid glass for a little added shine.  The sentiment was created using an Ink Joy pen and my Chomas Creations pen holder in my Cameo 3.  The sketch is from Paper Play Sketches.   Love how this card turned out.

You can grab this amazing set here:  Penguin with Snowballs

Have a great day!

Alien Birthday

So my amazing husband bought me all the Spectrum Noir markers recently and I've been really enjoying the coloring I'm getting from them.  They are a little different than using Copics (which I did own at one point, but switched to Chameleon markers ~ BIG mistake!!)  Any hoot...  here's a little coloring for you =)

I used the current sketch over at Paper Play Sketches for the layout.  I love this sketch and plan on using it for more cards.


Be gentle, I'm still a rookie =)

Lucky Stars

So I just ordered the next generation Spectrum Noir markers and so far, only the pastels have arrived.  Impatient as I am, I couldn't wait to test them out.  I found out after coloring this little digi, I need to get the blender and spend more time with them.


I really like the feel of these markers and they seem to have great coverage compared to my Chameleon markers.  Time will tell though =)

For this card I used the following goodies:
Little Miss Muffets ~ Monster Urm (found here)
Scrappy Mom's Whimsical Words Stamp Set
DCWV ~ Silver Stag Star Cardstock
Recollections Cardstock
