Christmas Brother and Sister

Well here we are at the last Anything Goes Challenge for 2017 over at Morgans ArtWorld Challenge blog. I don't know about you but 2017 has been a pretty full on year for me and I am looking forward to perhaps winding down for Christmas and New Year and hopefully having a more relaxed 2018, but hey we will see how it goes. Here is my project:
Morgans ArtWorld, Morgan Fitzsimons Winter Fae 2
Card Tip:
it always amazes me how different a card can look when you change the colour scheme. I created a card last year with the same image with a completely different colour scheme, here they are side by side:
Morgans ArtWorld, Morgan Fitzsimons Winter Fae 2
















Isn't it amazing how different the the cards look with the different colour schemes, one intense and vibrant, the other soft and pastely. So next time your feeling without mojo, grab an image you have created with before but change up the colour scheme, you wont' regret it.

Thanks for Diecut Divas

Its time for a brand new challenge over at Diecut Divas. With November comes Thanksgiving Day so this month we are talking about all things thankful, including what your thankful for as well as thank you cards. We also have a brand new sponsor this month: A2Zscrapbooking, how stock a great range of Hero Arts digital stamps which is what I used in my project.
Like most card makers I like to make cards for the individual person and individual purpose but its always nice to have some cards in your stash to use. With this in mind I have taken advantage of using a digital stamp and created a set of Thank you cards. These came in handy for Teachers Appreciation day for both of my kids to give to their teachers.

September New Release at Morgans ArtWorld

You saw right - its new release time over at Morgans ArtWorld. This month we are getting in touch with our animal instincts with this two images that will suit any card occasion.



Here is my project using those gorgeous Pandas.

Morgans ArtWorld September New Release, Morgan Fitzsimons Wild 2

Card Tip:
I usually use Distress Inks for making grass and sky backgrounds behind my copic coloured images. Unfortunately I found out the hard way this wasn't going to work with this image, I kept getting green ink on those gorgeous white heads. So I still used my circle die as a template but I used my copic markers to create the backgrounds. I still got my softness but with added control.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Creative white card stock for 5" square card base, Quill black card stock.
Papers: Gina K Designs Made With Love paper pack.
Stamps: Morgans ArtWorld Wild 2, Happy Birthday sentiment from free stamp set from Simply Cards magazine.
Ink: Versamark ink, Alison Ellis fine white embossing powder.
Markers:
               Panda: C5+C7+C9, C0+C1 
               Plants: G07+G14+YG63, G21 
               Sky:BG000+BG02
Dies: Spellbinders standard circles large, standard scalloped circle large.
Other: White spotted black ribbon from stash.
