Zuri Artsy Crafty Blog

Here I am again today with my first Inspirational post for these adorable images by Zuri Artsy Crafty blog.

Today I am showcasing this adorable image by Zuri called, Bubbles. Is this one so darling? Love the innocence of this image and thought it would look best with some softer colors.
I colored the image with my Copics as usual. I handmade the flower by rolling some lace I had in my collection and adding a pearl center.  The sentiment is actually from my collection.
Hope you all enjoyed this Inspirational Post and look forward to all the other fabulous pieces from the other Designers coming soon.

Variation Week-Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello everyone. This is Variation week and this week we were all showcase one of the images by Charity Dunhauer called Wild Heart.

Of course with the Fall...Halloween and Gothic theme items always seem to come to my mind. This image just struck me as a great image to try to give that old world look too.
The paper is from my old Halloween set I have from the local craft store called Jeepers Creepers. I colored the image with my Copics and used only a few colors to get a Sepia type of look and then inked the edges of it with ink. I created the frame with my Cricut (Happy Hauntings Cart) and then added some black tulle and pearls on the edges.

Early Halloween Card

I do so love Halloween and recently saw some new digis released by Simply Betty that I decided were great to use for Halloween.  This one is from the Betty Boo-doir series at Simply Betty

I colored up this card and just wanted to pop in to show it to you.

I used my Jeeper Creepers paper again and mostly just colord this one with my Copics.  I sponged the background to get a more antiqued effect.

I will also be entering this one into the following challenges:

Sweet Pea Designs-Rebecca Sinz

Hello Everyone,

I have been seeing this technique online of the shaker boxes so I decided I would give it a try.  I used one of the gorgeous images available by Rebecca Sinz called, Aconitum.

The paper is an assortment from my stash of MME papers that I pieces together. The image is colored with my Copics and I used a plastic overlay from one of the plastic covers on my daughter's doll cases. It is my first attempt but definitely can see using this again for some Christmas card images soon.

Sugar Nellie Card

I am back again today. Managed to get like 4 cards done last night but most are DT work so no peeking :-)

One of my favorite stamp companies is Sugar Nellie and was super excited to see a DT call come out for their challenge blog, The Sugar Bowl, and I figured I would give it a shot.

So here is my card. It is kinda simple but I realized that I like my card with just a little bit of jazz if you know what I mean. I colored the image with my Copics and used the beautiful stamp from Sugar Nellie. The paper is from MME-Indie Set.

If you are interested in entering the DT call here is the info and Good Luck to all who have entered.
I will also be entering this card into a few challenges:

Hello Everyone,

I am checking in today with a new card I did with one of the beautiful images from Ching Chou Kuik's called The Moth.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp set and love it so much as well.

I colored the image with my Copics. I used my Copics to make the background as well on the image and added some Liquid Pearl. The vine background was created with a stamp and used two different ink colors.
