I Hold You in My Heart


     It has been awhile since I posted my last card, at least awhile for me... so much going on.  These past two weeks there has been much sadness and also much joy.. the "yin and yang" of life never ceases to amaze me.  

     First, I, too, have been deeply saddened by the horrific events  in Newtown, Connecticut.  Only days before, my students endured the tragic death of another teen at the school where I teach.  It was hard to get my mojo going for much of anything for a time. I read on so many blogs how some people just felt the need to take a breath and be still for a bit. I had the same experience.  But life also presents us with gifts, sometimes in the midst of such darkness, and on a brighter note, I was able to get away for a few days last week to attend the college graduation of my son, Timothy.  How wonderful to be together with his father watching him walking across the stage with pride having worked so hard to accomplish this goal.  My son will join both his father and me as he embarks on a career in education.  We know he will be a wonderful teacher!

     My card today is one I have worked on for the past week or so. It was truly my way of channeling my  prayers and hopes for healing for those who lost their loved ones so tragically last week. When Jak Heath blogged about a card drive for those in Connecticut (here), I immediately knew the image I would use and how I would interpret it.  For my card, I selected Hannah Lynn's "A Princess is Born" digi image.
     The image is colored with copic markers (colors listed below).  Actually she is my second rendition as I colored her and then dropped an inkpad right on top of the image as I attempted to stamp a sentiment!  I had to color her over again but honestly, I found it so comforting to do so!  The design paper is from Pion Design.  The "angel wings" are from Kaisercraft. I painted them with Tim Holtz paint dabber in Pearl and then added Deco Art Glamour Dust.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Tulle Pleat Trim, that I tied into a bow is from Live and Love Crafts.  The antique lace and blue velvet ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl.
         The sentiment is from Just Rite Clear Stamp Set- In Sympathy.  At first, I began looking through my stamp binders for a sentiment about children and then stumbled on this set. Once I read it, I knew it was perfect for what was in my heart...I stamped it with a new Ranger Archival Inkpad in Plum- these inkpad colors are breathtaking.
    Have a good day and thank you, once again, for your kind comments.

"Two Heartbeats"....The Paper Shelter Blog Hop Celebrates Our 2nd Birthday!



   Good Morning and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. Our hop is a very exciting one for all of us as it is in celebration of our 2nd Birthday!!!! If you have landed here from Lorraine's  blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one!  Our Design Team has worked very hard and the team is showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter online store. Each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot!

      Our theme for this blog Hop is "Two of Anything".  For my card, I selected a digi image called "Light of My Life", and the two of anything on my card are... two heartbeats!   This image, like so many others, comes pre-printed as well as in jpeg and png format. I used the pre-printed image for my card - they are so perfect for when you want a quick or perfectly colored image right away!

         The design paper is new- it is Lili of the Valley "Promises" paper pad and I just love it. It worked so well with the colors in the pre-printed image.  I added some Pebbles iridescent chalk around the image and a bit of Deco Art Glamour Dust to her hair and I was ready to embellish.  The die cut is from Spellbinder- Floral Ovals.  The flowers and metal corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Don't know where I got the floral rose ribbon, and the pearls are from my stash.   I just love, love, love this sentiment.  Thanks Carla for introducing me to Create with TLC where I purchased this beautiful digi sentiment!  I was waiting for the right time to use it and when this I found this, I knew it would be perfect for a mommy or daddy to be! (It is available in my ETSY shop, where I have added a few cards, today!)

Christmas Light

     Hi... Well, we are officially in the month of December, so let the holiday spirit begin!  This year, I am committing to making the holidays less frenetic and focusing on quality time spent with family.  It is a season of "light" both physical and spiritual. I hope you, too, can hold on to the moment amid all the "to do's" - With that in mind, I created a card using a La La Land Stamp called "Christmas Lantern Marci".
   First, the inspiration for this card came from Sara Winter (aka "Daisy Dreams" blog here).  Her work is an inspiration to me and if you click on the link above, you will see this Marci in different colors and so beautifully embellished on her cards. I asked for permission to use her card for a copic class I am teaching on "reds" and so in doing so, I created my own version of her beautiful card.. thank you Sara!
   Marci is colored with copics on Make it Colour Cardstock. I had to paper piece her hat as I tried once again to add glitter over the Sharpie Paint Pen polka dots and it just causes the paint pen to run and fade.  So, I colored another hat and paper pieced it over this one.  I used the softer E30's and 40's colors for her dress and R59, 39, 29, 24, 22 and 20 for her coat, shoes and hat.
   The design paper is from Teresa Collins' Christmas Cottage. The ribbon, lace and pearls are from my stash. The holly lace flourish die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Flowers and heart pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. The flourish and parts of the image were coated with Snow-tex, Martha Stewart Snow glitter and Stickles Diamond glitter. The image was outlined in dark blue Pebbles iridescent chalks.
    Have a great day and thanks for your kind comments!  I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Sending Birthday Wishes

    Happy Wednesday!  If you are like me, the day before Thanksgiving tends to be a bit hectic but it is all good! So much to be thankful for, so wherever you are and whoever you are sharing the day with, I hope you have time to slow down, breathe and savor all that is good in your life! I know in light of the recent hurricane, there will be many for whom this day will be difficult. They will continue to be in my prayers.
     I am also sharing my DT card for this week's PAPER SHELTER challenge.  This week, the theme is HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I bet that is the occasion for which we make and send the most cards. I know that is true for me.  As always, THE PAPER SHELTER awards a $30 prize voucher to a challenge winner who uses a Paper Shelter image on their project, but you can still enter with ANY image you choose. If you do, you can still win 3 Paper Shelter images of your choice, so good luck!

     For my "Clean and Simple" card, I selected a cute digi image that is so versatile... it can be used for many occasions, not just birthdays, and the possibilities for merging it with many other stamps is endless...This image is called "Romantic Mailbox." 
     My card base is Stardream Metallic by CutCardstock.  Again, I can't rave enough about how incredible this 12x12 cardstock is in terms of how easily it scores (no cracks) and how sturdy it is for all the layers and embellishments. I use both the Crystal (white) and Opal (ivory).  The paper has a beautiful iridescence to it as well.  The mats are from Bazzill - both "Bling" and the 6x6 package.  I printed the image on Make It Colour Blending card and colored the entire image with copics.  I added some polka dots to the hearts on the letters with the Sharpie fine point paint pen and created some clouds with my handmade template and Pebbles Iridescent chalk.  (Tip: After I apply the chalk against the cloud template around my image, I run the very tip of a chalk eraser "through" the clouds in one direction and very lightly to create "lines" and pull some of the chalk through the skyline.)  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  The heart pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon, lace and large heart button are from my stash.
     Thanks for visiting and always for your kind comments. Please stop by The Paper Shelter blog and see what the Design Team has created to inspire you... then please join us in this week's Happy Birthday challenge!  Last, I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.   Among the gifts I am blessed to celebrate this holiday are your support, creativity and friendship- for that I am so very grateful!

The Greatest Strength

     Just dropping by to share a card I made this week for the Saturated Canary "Fairytales" challenge... All fairytales have a princess in them, right? So for my card, I chose Krista's "Princess Honor."  I also selected her because of her "warrior" look and I was eager to play with that type of image. This was not an easy image for me to color for many reasons...first I decided to clean the nibs of my often used "E" copics by soaking them in alcohol which is great, but I think I did not let them dry well enough so that when I put them back into the sketch case and colored with them, they were diluting the ink I just lay down. Ugh! Lesson learned!  It may have also been responsible for a lot of ink seeping over some lines,  so you will see quite a bit of "white" inksentialls pen and white sharpie in some places!  Still I just love this image and it helped me practice coloring hair (thanks Suzanne Dean and Zoe McGrath for your "hair" tutorials and pdf's) and "large and small spaces"...after about 7 or 8 attempts, I stayed with this image and here is my card....
     Something about this image really moved me- maybe it is her strength and yet her tenderness evidenced by the butterfly on the tip of her bow and those big eyes, but I really like it!  I searched for some Native American quotes on strength and honor and I stumbled on this one by the Iroquois which I think sums up what this image is saying...I printed it out using a free font I downloaded from DaFonts called "Jellyka Western Princess" into MS Word.  I simply put in search words such as "western" or "princess" and these fonts come up for selection. Simply download to your desktop and then right-click "install" which imports the font right into your word program!
      "Princess Honor" was colored with copics- primarily E81, 84 and 87 (and a little YG93/91) for her top and gloves and YR 24, 23, 21 and 20 with some deeper E's (99, 97 and 23) to deepen shadows on her skirt. By playing with many shades on her skirt, I hoped to achieve a "suede" look. By that I mean I left some areas looking "unblended" and blotchy to mimic how the light plays with the nap of seude fabric.  I colored some clouds with a handmade cloud template and some Pebbles blue iridescent chalk. The design paper comes primarily from Basic Grey's "Curio" and the burnt orange dp from another Basic Grey pad that I don't recall!  The cardstock is PTI's "Smoke" and it is a great black/brown color!  Flowers and metal corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  For the "embellishment" on the right, I used a tip from Dena Concienne's "Cornelia" card  (another Saturated Canary image) and the cut some "twigs"  from a Fall wreath now hanging over my fireplace and wrapped some twine and a heart button around it! Necessity is the mother of invention!! .
    A close up, warts and all...
Thanks so much for your kind comments.  Have a great day. I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

"Calgon..Take Me Away...."

     Wow, remember that television slogan for Calgon Bath Beads?  (notice I didn't say bubble bath?)  I am certainly dating myself... but the product is still around (link above)!  Isn't it the truth?  Nothing is so wonderful as a hot, bubble bath!  When was the last time life slowed down enough to do that? I am hoping that those still without power will be putting a nice hot bath on the top of their list of "things to do" once life gets back to normal.  For some, unfortunately, that will be a longer journey..especially as a Nor'easter storm is due to arrive today. My school will be closed again because of the wind and rain and I am hoping no more damage and loss occurs with today's storm...
    A brighter bit of news is that it's Wednesday and that means another great challenge at THE PAPER SHELTER.  This week's challenge is "ELVES AND FAIRIES" and The Paper Shelter sure has a lot of elves and fairies to color!  As always, The Paper Shelter awards a $30 prize voucher to a challenge winner who uses a Paper Shelter image on their project, but you can still enter with ANY image you choose. If you do, you can still win 3 Paper Shelter images of your choice! 
     For my card, I selected "Magic Bubble Bath" - a digital image that comes in PNG and JPEG format as well as with design paper.  My little elf is colored with copic markers and a lot of Deco Art Glamour Dust... 
     Don't you just love the sentiment? 
 I found it online and computer generated it for this card. One blogger (forget who) shared a great website called Wordmark.it that I just love.  You simply type in whatever you want (a word or sentiment or a long passage...) in the box that says "wordmark" and then click "load fonts."  Easy peasy and then you see your sentiment in all different fonts that you already have on your computer on ONE page!  It features positive and negative selection, too!  Now, while you can not paste the one you want in a document, you can note the font you like and then go back to your WORD doc and just retype the sentiment and choose the font you noted in Wordmark.it. It is really a fast and convenient way to see how your sentiment looks in different fonts!    
    The design paper I used is called "The Bright Side of Life" by Scrap Cake Papers.  The blue strip across the floral paper is from a DCWV paper pad called "Be Mine".  The papers were matted with Bazzill cardstock and Kraft cardstock.  All edges were distressed with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain ink.
  The metallic corner and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and, once again, I colored the silver metallic corner with Acrylic white paint and glitter.  Pearls and cheesecloth are from my stash and the die is from Cheery Lynn called "Fanciful Flourish" that I cut out of ivory pearl cardstock from Joanns.  I also attached some fun opalescent "plastic bubbles" from Dress it Up buttons  (Michael's) over the bubbles in the digi image. I applied Glossy Accents to the bubbles in her hair, bath and water under the jug.
    A close up:
   Why not stop over to The Paper Shelter blog to see what the Design Team has created to inspire you?  We look forward to seeing your "elf and fairy" projects this week. Remember after posting your project to The Paper Shelter Challenge blog, please link back to the challenge on your blog post.  Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments!

Prayers for You...

     Today I am posting a card that is really my way of channeling my prayers and sadness for all those families who lost their homes, dearest possessions and, in some cases, their loved ones, to this storm.  My school is closed and gas stations are running out of gas, so I am home grateful that I have power back.  As I watched the news, I find myself in awe of the stories of courage and compassion.  I am also moved by the suffering of so many. ... if nothing else, these stories remind us how blessed we are and allow us to reassess just what we complain about! I will be watching the benefit concert tonight and making my small pledge donation to the Red Cross to help...
     For my card, I used a rubber stamp I never got to ink up called "Grieving Cherub" by Whiff of Joy. I thought this little angel was perfect to represent both the sadness I feel but also the hope and protection that angels always symbolize to me and that I am "sending" out to all those who are still suffering.  This little angel is colored with copic markers and die cut with a Spellbinder circle die.

     The design paper is "Cottage Charms" by Whimsy Stamps.  The die behind the angel is from Joy! Crafts Rectangle Die.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the silver metal corner was covered with Tim Holtz white pearl dabber paint and glitter.  Pearls are from Recollections Bling on a Roll and the "Rain" drops are from Cloud9 - love these; very glittery and all different sizes. The edges of the dp and the Kraft cardstock were distressed with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain distress ink.  Clouds behind the angel were made with Pebbles iridescent chalk. The die cuts and image were coated with Deco Art Glamour Dust.
     Thank you for your kind comments, especially as we got through this week.  Praying for healing for all those affected~

We are fine...

Just a quick post as I got my power and phones (cell and landline) back amazingly fast... don't know if it is for good or for just awhile.. devastation is beyond belief in some places here on Long Island but my family is fine... a tense night but besides downed trees and power lines, we are safe and sound.
My prayers are with all of those who lost so much in this destructive storm.  With only our Red Cross Radio and no power until an hour or so ago, I just got to see the first images on television of the subways of Manhattan under water and parts of our beloved Fire Island washed away - Parts of New Jersey were hit so hard as well and those images are painful to imagine.
So much to be grateful for- thank you for all your prayers, emails and comments..

Believe!

     Happy Sunday... actually not so happy, but rather a bit anxious about the impending hurricane coming our way.  I live on the south shore of Long Island and we are told "Sandy" will be a huge storm!  We are as prepared as we can be and the rest is left to hopes and prayers that it will all end with everyone in its path safe and sound!  One of the nicest ways to divert my attention from anxious thoughts was to create this card and so I spent the greater part of the evening in my craft room creating this project.  For this card, I used a Mo Manning digital image, "Winter Fairy Talva"... isn't she the cutest?
       "Winter Fairy Talva" is colored with copic markers.  I used a bunch of BG's and also added some of the blue/blue green fluorscent markers.  I am sorry I did not note the colors- some times when I color I am a madman with so many markers and mixing colors...Her dress was dusted with with Deco Art Glamour Dust and embellished with Viva Decor Pearl Pen (white).  I just left those little pearls on her dress alone until they dried and each one is perfect this time!  Talva's pompoms and snowball are also covered with Diamond Stickles.  The design paper is an older Bo Bunny paper called Snowy Serenade and it is hard to find.  I also used Melissa Frances C'est la Vie.  The metal corner embellishment, pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.  Swarovski crystals and silver crystal rose ribbon from my stash.  Magnolia doohickey is behind the sentiment from an old acrylic stamp set in my stash.
     In my last post, I told you about the stash of glittery tulle I purchased from Joanns...well I found another use for it... it matched my card colors so well that I thought I would drape it in my light tent behind my card. I scattered some large flat back pearls and voila!

    A close up view...
     Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving such kind comments.  They say we may not have power for 7-10 days after the storm hits on Monday but I am hoping that won't be the case!  I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

AOOOOOOOOO! The Paper Shelter Challenge



     Hope your week is going well.. It's Wednesday and that means another great challenge from The Paper Shelter.  Our theme this week is... HALLOWEEN.   Even though I am the biggest scaredy cat, I just love Halloween; love to decorate the house with candles and all things spooky.
    As always, The Paper Shelter offers a $30 voucher to anyone who wins using a TPS image.  If you choose to use an image from another company, you can still win a choice of 3 digis from the store.  Veronica and Pedro love giving away the "big prize" so we hope you play with one of the TPS images.

     For my Halloween card, I selected "A Great Harvest"  and merged him with another digi image by CC Designs called "Swiss Pixie Halloween Scene".  Since The Paper Shelter images come in both JPEG and PNG formats, you can merge them with any other digi images that are also PNG format.
     My little "werewolf" is colored with copic markers.  I often struggle with hair that has few or no lines so what I did with this little guy is that I lightly added some strands of hair with the copic .03 black multiliner - it made it easier for me to blend his haircolor having created a few more "sections."
     The design paper is from K&Company, an older 12x12 paper pad.  The black cardstock is from Recollections and the card base is 12x12 STARDREAM METALLIC #105 weight from Cut Cardstock - they make the best and most sturdy cardstock for a card base.  I purchase the Stardream metallic (white) and Opal Metallic (ivory) for my card bases.  You will find you can layer all your fun embellishments on this cardstock without any bending.
    I also went crazy at Joann's this week purchasing 1/4 yard cuts of fun Tulle and Netting.  I used the crickled black (first one on left in pic below) for this card.  Such sparkle...no need to get out the Glamour Dust! I have so many gorgeous colors that you will be seeing in upcoming posts.  While I love to spray my own cheesecloth with the many great spray inks, sometimes it saves time to use the premade tulle!
   The Scary Fence punch is from Martha Stewart and the sentiment is one I found on the internet... doesn't it match the image so perfectly?
    Well, that is all for me today... as always, thank you for your kind comments.  Won't you hop over to The Paper Shelter blog to see what the design team has created to inspire you?  Hoping  you will join us for a "howling" good challenge.... AOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

"When Shall We Three Meet Again" (Macbeth)

     Happy Tuesday!  Just stopping by to post my card entry for the latest Saturated Canary challenge... it was an "interesting" color inspiration photo, to say the least, but I just love challenges. As I say, they help you stretch those creative muscles whether it is with color, medium or your project design.  Here is the photo as inspiration:
saturated canary digi
     Well, the first thing I did was carry (run) this little photo over to my craft table and match the color chips in the photo with my "copic swatch book".  Once I knew what colors I could use, I selected one of my favorite new Saturated Canary images, WitchKeys.  I love having all three witches in one image and how perfect for the Halloween season. Each witch has her own look and her own attitude!

    "Witchkeys" was colored with copic markers (see colors below).  I created polka dots with the Sharpie white paint pen and then coated certain parts of each witch with Deco Art Glamour Dust.  In some spots, my glue/glitter blobbed a bit but I was afraid the copics might smear if I touched it and coloring them over was not an option!

The cardstock is from Bazzill and that fab design paper is Authentique's Enchanted 6x6 paper pad.  I also used my favorite Kraft cardstock from Craftworks to mat my paper/image. It is a nice thick and dark cardstock!  All edges of the cardstock and papers were distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink.  Behind the image, I cut two pieces of black spiderweb net ribbon to add to the spooky theme.  The flowers are all from Recollections and Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from one of my favorite acrylic stamp sets by Obsession ImpressionLast but not least, the die cut swirls are one of my "go-to" dies from Memory Box, Elegant Scrollwork.

  Copics:
Clothes/Hats: RV99, 95, 93 &91
YR 24, 14, 21 & 20
G99, 84, 82 &40
C9, 7,5,3, 1, & 0
Ground: W3, 1 & 0
Hair: E50, 31, 25 & 29
Red Hair: E21,17,18 &19, E 29
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13
Colorless Blender and Sharpie Paint Pen

    The shadows surrounding the image are made with Pebbles Iridescent chalk.  That's all for today... looking forward to playing with some other new stamps that just arrived. Thanks always for your kind comments.  I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
