Happy Mother’s Day 2019


Hi Everyone!

Thought I would share my Mother’s Day card that I made for my mom this year! I thought this was the perfect image showing a mother’s love for her child. Our mom’s hugs all make us feel extra special and safe. I think I have the most loving mom in the world and I am truly grateful for everything she has done for me in my life!

I used the lesson from Kit and Clowder – September Pencils Monthly class 2018 to colour this image. The stamp also came with this class. Alyce is a wonderful teacher and she explains each step in detail, both in the videos and booklet that come with the course. She has helped me in so many ways improving my colouring techniques, both with markers and pencils and I am truly grateful to her.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mom’s out there!

Happy Father’s Day


Sharing a card that I made for my dad for Father’s Day this year!

My dad is a magnificent carpenter and can build just about anything. He built our entire family home, my portable spinning wheel, and after building multiple miniature airplane models, decided to build a real one. He has also built many other items throughout the years.

He built his airplane in our basement along with my uncle and then had to remove a basement window and part of the front wall to get it out. LOL! It really was quite something to witness. He taught us that if you put your mind to it and you dream about it, then you could do it. Or at least try to do it.

The plane had passed inspection with flying colours and it was really a lot of fun going up into the air with him, as I love to fly too. Not a pilot, but I do love to fly! LOL!

On the front of the card I printed out the digital stamp from Lily of the Valley – The Workbench, then coloured it in with Copic markers using the lessons from Kit and Clowder Technique class taught by Alyce Keegan. I highly recommend Kit and Clowder tutorials as they have helped me come a long way in my colouring techniques over the past couple of years. She really does break it down and make it easy for you to follow.

Stamped the sentiment using Peachy Keen Stamps – PCSC-05 May 2012. Stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Included a close-up of the image.

On the inside I printed out the digital image from The Paper Shelter – The Aviator. I then coloured in the image using my Copic markers and did the background using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also created my own sentiment for my dad.

Hi There,

For this project I used all Copic markers. Alyce from Kit and Clowder also teaches you how to use alternative markers as well. Which I really love, since I also have the full Spectrum Noir collection.

I had a lot of fun doing this class as it taught me a lot of new techniques. I especially loved learning how to colour the snow as I love making wintery scened Christmas cards. 🙂

Also, loved learning how to do the sky.

To frame the image I used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. One of my all time favourites. Then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon to go around the border to deepen the colour.

Added in a little glitter to the snowy roofs and snow on the ground, just because I love sparkle. LOL!

Hope you like it!
