Oldies But Goodies - DIY Cards

Since moving over to WordPress and not carrying over any of my content from StampinMindy All of these DIY cards I’m showing today I’ve made probably over 2-5 years ago! Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be highlighting some of my older creations here on My Creative Scoop! Going through these DIY cards in my computer over the last hour has really made me think of how much I MISS my Copics! If I added up all the time I’ve sat and colored it would probably add up to months and months!

  1. This first DIY card I absolutely ADORE! I used my Copic Markers to color this gorgeous Lili of the Valley Mermaid image. Lili of the Valley is a UK based company, I was on their design team for many years. They have adorable, unique images. I know a lot of people from the USA are hesitant to buy from over seas — honestly this company has amazing quality products and customer service is seriously top notch! I love the deep colors of the ocean and their hair against the light pastel colors of their tails. The papers I used are from Maja Designs. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, an amazing company based out of the UK, that I used to be a design team member for. I gave this card to my dear friend Sheri Willshire.

2. This is another image from Lili of the Valley, colored with my Copic Markers. The papers on this card are from Fancy Pants Designs, another paper crafting company I was a Design Team Member for.

4. Another Lili of the Valley Card. I adore their images, the papers really stand out so much. This color combo is one of my favorites. These papers are by My Minds Eye. I love how they have smaller prints in the 6×6 paper packs.

6. Here’s another Magnolia Card. Every year I have to make a Pink Christmas card. I don’t know why. 🙂 I masked the boy, Edwin behind the chimney and then cut out the hanging Tilda Magnolia stamp I colored and cut out. I used the 3d foam dots to add some dimension to her.  The papers are actually ones I’ve designed. If you are interested in them you can check out my Etsy Shop or Contact me!

7. This next card I’m using a Saturated Canary image. The illustrator of these digi stamps is Krista Smith. She’s so unbelievably talented! I’ve been a huge fan of hers since she started! I just love the uniqueness of her style. I colored this image with my Copic markers. The papers are by Magnolia.

8. Here’s another Saturated Canary image. I LOVE this card. I used my Copic Markers to color. I created the grass and clouds using my Copic Markers. I just love the sunrise effect I made in the background. I also designed these papers. 🙂

9. This next one is also by Saturated Canary and colored with my Copics the papers are by Prima Marketing. I love all of the different textures on this card. All of my cards have so many embellishments and are so heavy. I remember this one was one of the heaviest. I kept the shading on the dress lighter so it would be a bright Spring/Summer card.
