Sympathy Card - Unfortunately Needed.

The theme for February is Any Shade of Red.   I made a Sympathy card for a friend who lost his wife for our co-workers to sign.  She was the sweetest person.  We were all in a daze when we heard.  The card is large so more people can sign - it's an 8 1/2 inch by 12 inch card stock folded in half.  I think this card shows we care.

Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge in the Garden



You have got to see the New releases today too.  I'll post them right after my sample.  
I certainly can't resist them, so you shouldn't resist either.

The sample card I made for the new challenge starting today was one I chose to just sit and color in a landscape.  It's so nice to have a marvelous landscape to color.  Morgan's images are so artful, so magical, that I love to sit and color them.

Supplies:
Butterfly Garden here
Copic Markers
Vagabond machine
Elizabeth Craft Designs Rectangle Stitched die-cuts
Flowers from my stash.

Check out the new challenge, just hop on over to Morgan's Artworld here.


I can't decide which one to color first, how about you? Visit Morgan Fitzsimons Art Stamps to see what you can find.

Poinsettia in Gold

I had two very favorite stamps and dies sets from 2016.  The coffee cups and cuts offer so many possibilities that I want to use them year round.  Then I couldn't put down this poinsettia stamp, either using it with the outline die or all three dies.  I've used this die on boxes and cards and am still loving the versatility.  I guess I have a start on next Christmas.  I kept it rather simple here.  You can't see the paper I stamped this on, no matter how many times I tried to catch swirls in this swirly pearlescent paper. The honey colored panel is a bit shiny too.

This sample is for the Die Cut Divas' challenge of pink or red.

Butterfly Digital in Shades of Red


Any Shade of Red - what a great challenge theme for February.

I received this wonderful die on an exchange of cards and found a slate background that would remind everyone of night.  I printed the images from this Winged  Friends Printable Butterfly Digital.  I was drawn to this butterfly, cut it out and used myu Copics to bring it to life.  I am pleased with the outcome.  What I like most about digital images is that you can resize them to your needs and wants.  Try them.

Make Your Own Digital So Special

Hero Arts made some special digital kits and I'm using the "Make Your Own".  I haven't used these Spellbinder's dies but a couple times and I thought they would be perfect for this old fashioned digital image.  No coloring, just some patterned panels and some gems.  I'll give this card to a close friend who is still not over a very bad cold.

Supplies:
Hero Arts Make Your Own at A2Z
Gem stickers

Coffee, Tea or Cocoa at Die Cut Divas

One of my favorite stamps and dies are the Coffee Cup Tags and Coffee Cup Tags Cuts. Unfortunately, they are out of stock now.

Still I want to share them with you. They don't have to be just a Christmas time stamp and you can definitely use the dies at any time of year.  I have TWO cards to share with you.

I'm also revealing my CCC card in an exchange at The Card Chain Challenge. At first, I didn't get overall coverage, but since I used my handy dandy Misti, all ends well.

Visit Die Cut Divas for the new HOT CHALLENGE... Pink or Red



Second card is celebrating summer.  A nice fruit filled cup.
