Hey crafty friends! Today I have a card to show you that I made with my soon to be released Buzzing Bees stamp set. This is my take on Mojo Mondays sketch for the week, Card Crafter's color challenge, as well as My Craft Spot's Birthday theme.
It's a birthday card for my grandfather who turns another year older this Sunday! (91!) Enjoy the sneak peek of my stamp set. If you like what you see and want in on this fun set, be sure to contact me, because quantities are limited. This set is 8x12 inches of stamping fun! Enjoy!

Mini Card

Hello crafters! Today I'd like to share a card I created for a few challenges going on...D.L.Art and Peachy Keen.

I made a mini card with an action wobble heart. I stamped a cute Peachy Keen animal face on the heart and colored the eyes with a white pen, the nose with a glaze pen, and the mouth with my red Copic marker. I also added a few freckles with the white pen. Again used Peachy Keen stamps for my sentiment. I used twine from the Twinery on the tiny button. The paper I used is from my stash. Some faux stitching and done.

I hope you like my card. I had fun creating it!


Yup, pretty soon Blue Moon Creation will feature stamps designed by me! I'm so excited! The samples are on their way for me to approve! Joyful Jar Drinks is a 6x8 inch set pre-release price of $14.99 There's also going to be a very cute huge Buzzing Bees set 8x12 inches for $22.99 during my pre-release sale. Reserve yours today as quantities will be limited.

Birthday Bear & Bees 3D Card

Hey crafters, this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge is a 3D bear project and Stamping for the Weekends challenge is Girlie...So, I thought I'd make a card with the bear from the January PK SOTM set and a few of the bees from Blue Moon Creation (yup, that's me!) Buzzing Bees set (which when released, will have 8x12 inches of un-bee-lievable stamping fun with lots of bee-utiful BEE sentiments).

The card isn't too hard to make, once you figure out the size you want. I'll post more on that in another blog later. Enjoy!

(Since I'm posting from my phone, pictures show up in random order at the bottom of my post. Sorry about that.)

(Enjoy the sneak peek of my Buzzing Bee stamp set. If you like what you see and want to get in on the fun, reserve a set now, during my pre-release sale $22.99...quantities will be limited.)

Take It Easy

Happy Friday! Today I have a card for you that I created using the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge and the Card Crafters Circle Challenge that just started, so there is still plenty of time for you to play along too!

I decided to make a retirement card using the Hillbilly Holler Stamps that I purchased during Peachy Keens Stamps End of the World Sale.

I colored the image with my Copic Sketch Markers and used a glitter pen on his mustache and on the lantern. Then I picked some papers and ribbon from my stash to match.

Here is my take on the sketch.
(Since I am posting this from my phone, the pictures just show in any random order at the end of my post. Sorry about that.)

Have a great weekend! Happy crafting!

Copic 101

Hey there crafty friends! I was so excited to be able to attend the Copic Standard Certification Class in Anaheim today. I met some really nice ladies and learned a few new things! (Learned I need more!) Now I am a Copic Certified Designer! Yay! I'm looking forward to trying out the new stuff I learned and practicing. So, stick around and see what I'm up to. I may just go through my book and teach you what I learned. But... before we go there, first you will need to decide which Copic Markers you will use. (Let me just throw this out there...I like the Sketch Markers.) Until next time, happy crafting!

I'm Late, Hope Your Hanukkah Was Great!

I don't know why I was so behind this holiday season, but I'm still getting out some Hanukkah and Christmas/Holiday Cards. It's crazy! And now that the new year has started, my list of cards that I need to create is continuing to grow at a rapid rate! So, lets get these holiday cards behind me and move on! With the Peachy Keen Stamp release going on and this weeks challenge, thankfully, these two holiday cards will fit into those challenges! I like how I'm turning the candles from Dec 2012 SOTM set into Hanukkah candles...maybe next year the Peachy Queen, Kathy will get some Hanukkah stuff in the sets...although it'll be the same time as Thanksgiving, so I have no clue how she would tie them together. Okay, enough's my cards.
