Fairy Christmas Eve by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

 Hi friends!  Welcome to my DT post for the new challenge on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.  Our theme this week is " A Christmas Card".

I chose the gorgeous "Fairy Christmas Eve" image.  As you probably know by now, I just adore fairies.


What a glorious image!  I coloured it with Copics and Polychromos.  I decided to use non traditional Christmas colours.  I inked around the edges of the image to create a warm glow.  I used glittered paper for the icicle borders.

We would love for you to join in the fun.  You can check out the other lovely creations by the other Design Team members. And, remember that there are some amazing prizes up for grabs.


Thank you for taking time to visit.  I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and here's hoping that whatever you do today, brings you happiness from morning until night.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Icicle border:  Marianne Creatables "Icicle Border" die LR0392
Sentiment:      Backed with Spellbinders " Classic Scalloped Border" dies

Glittered paper is from my stash.

Polka Dot Raincoat by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

 Hello friends!  A new challenge starts today on the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog.  This is my Design Team card showcasing the charming "Polka Dot Raincoat" image by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps.


I drew the background.  I applied Glossy Accents on the puddle, the grass and on the raindrops.  The image is coloured with Copics and Polychromos. The wonderful sentiment is by Vivian Greene and is computer generated.

I would like to wish you a joyful and bountiful Thanksgiving.  Thank you for visiting.  I always appreciate it.  Hugs, Lori xx

Christmas Carole by Conie Fong

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my DT post today.  I made this card for Conie Fong's monthly Facebook challenge.  If you join in the fun, you may win some gorgeous images from Conie.

This beauty is "Christmas Carole" by Conie Fong.  I coloured her with my trusty Copic markers.


I used part of Spellbinders "Grand Vaulted Cabinet" dies for the frame around the image.  I have quite a few Martha Stewart Around the Page punch sets, and I find that they work rather well on slimline cards.  Granted, you can only get three sides punched out but I still think they are fabulous.  And, I get to use some of my old punches...LOL.  

Thank you for stopping by; I truly appreciate it.  I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx


Materials and Tools Used 

Frame:   Spellbinders "Grand Vaulted Cabinet" dies
Base:     Martha Stewart "Snowfall" Around the Page punch set

Panda in a Mug by Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps

 Hi dear friends!  Happy Saturday.  There is a 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop going on now.  It ends on Friday, November 19.  I love coffee and I drink two big mugs every morning.


 
I made this card using the adorable "Panda in a Cup" image by Sasayaki Glitter but, unfortunately, their etsy shop has no items listed.  It is an old image so perhaps that is why.


The image is coloured with Copic markers.  The Coffee Love Frame is an SVG file which I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The image iscut and matted using Spellbinders "Standard Circles Large" dies.   I made the pinwheel bow and the flowers are from I Am Roses.

Thank you for stopping by.  I wish you a happy weekend.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Frame around image:   Spellbinders "Standard Circles Large" dies
Coffee cup frame:        Silhouette Design Store SVG
Pearl flourish:              Recollections from Michaels Arts and Crafts

Flowers:                       I Am Roses
