Christmas Candle by Pickled Potpourri




Christmas Candle is a nice collage image from Pickled Potpourri.  It almost makes a complete card on its own.  I colored by image with Copic markers (R24, R59, Y38, YR04, Y26, Y28, YG63, YG67) and then used chalks for the background.  On the flame I used Yellow Wink of Stella to make it glisten.   Crystal Effects were applied to the dripping part of the candle.  The background patterned paper is from my stash of paper, and I used Bazzill Ivy cardstock to mat it.  A rick rack ribbon trim across top and bottom was added also.

Beehive by Pickled Potpourri



Beehive by Pickled Potpourri makes a happy card for almost any occasion. The background of my card is an embossing folder by Darice called Bees Buzzing.  I chalked over it to make the bees visible.  The beehive image is printed on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Then I cut it with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals Nestabilities and mounted it on yellow cardstock.  Buttons with floss were added for accent.

Snowman Tags by Pickled Potpourri




 
More Christmas ideas this week with Snowman Tags from Pickled Potpourri.  I've made a card and a tag, colored them with Copic markers and mounted them on green cardstock.  The background of the card is a snowflake embossing folder, and I used White Liquid Applique on the snow.  Stickles were used on the snowflakes to make them sparkle.  I tied a ribbon and bow under the main image. 
 
On the tag I added hardware from Lilly Anna by Red Rubber Designs and ribbon.

Happy Thanksgiving

 
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Facebook friends and blog post friends.  This is a card made with a rubber stamp set called Every Leaf from Red Rubber Designs.  I love the fall leaves which are just now turning colors in Texas.  They are so beautiful.  God's blessings are so many, and I am thankful.  The sentiment on the card is from Blessings by Our Daily Bread Designs.


This card is from Little Miss Muffet, and must be a retired set now.  It is called Bandit Boy Gavin at Thanksgiving and Agent Bubblegum at Thanksgiving.  It reminds me of our heritage and why our nation is thankful for freedom and blessings in America.  The sentiment is from Sophisticated Sentiments from Red Rubber Designs.
 
 
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Reindeer Tags by Pickled Potpourri



 
 
Time for another Christmas idea.  These are Reindeer Tags by Pickled Potpourri.  Aren't they cute?  I made a card and gift tag using this digital set.  The images are colored with Copic Markers.  The background paper is from my scraps drawer.  I added stickles on the snowflakes and bells around the deer collars, red pom pom balls for the noses, a brad from the Cha Cha hardware collection from Red Rubber designs, and a couple of ribbons for the tag.  Easy!

Christmas Collage by Pickled Potpourri


 Christmas Collage is a digi image by Pickled Potpourri.  It makes a lovely Christmas card.  For my card, I printed the image twice on XPress Copic cardstock, colored it with Copic markers (YG07, R35, B28, YR04, BV00, Y15, BG53, G46, G43, B000) sponged Color Box Chalk ink (Bisque) in the background.  I used a Gold Wink of Stella pen around the rim of the stain glass window and then a Gold Leafing pen around the blue matting behind the image and around the edge of the card.  The stained glass window is cut out and popped up over the base image..I cut out the blue matting with a deckle edge trimmer.

This second view shows the shiny gold around the edges.

Sunshine in My Garden by Pickled Potpourri


Sunshine in My Garden by Pickled Potpourri features a watering can with a sunflower in it.  It is a great image for fall with the sweet sentiment, "Wishing you a sunny day!".  For my card I printed the image on XPress Copic cardstock, colored it with Copic markers (BG13, BG18, B0000, YG23, YG25, YG17, YG93, YG97, Y00, Y01, YR12, YR15, YR14, YR16, E13, E15, E18, C5), and then cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I added yellow cardstock to back the image and sentiment, and also a yellow bow.
