Stef makes me smile

Hi everyone! A quick post today. I had time last night to play along with this week's Featured Stamper, SmilynStef! She is such a fun person who is very talented AND very generous with her comments around the galleries and blogs.

I chose this cutie pie tree card to case. I changed the paper and the image, but really kept with the feel of the card. I used Cosmo Cricket, Earth Love. The image is from Miss Anya Dressy from The Greeting Farm and the sentiment is Verve's Thankful Hearts. I colored her with my copics and decorated the card with some Kaiser pearls and buttons! I even did some stitching.

To get her to "sit" on the bottom piece of cardstock, I cut her legs out but kept the sides in tact. Then I slid her legs over and popped out the upper part of the panel. Looks kinda cool.

Here is a detail pic of the buttons.

I received several emails and questions about the Copic Marker storage I showed yesterday, so I also wanted to give you all some more details. The white organizer pieces are from JetMax, their white storage cube system.

I got all mine at Craft Warehouse on sale for $20 a cube. The one I use for my Copics is called the Embellishment Center. There is a thread on SCS that talks about the cubes and even shows some pics. Here is my entire piece. I have 2 side by side. Most of my PTI ribbon are on the top bar, the next shelf holds my Martha Stewart ribbon and Oregon Raindrops, next one has my Nestabilities in CD cases, pencil/pen/file/stuff holder and my stickles and shimmerz, with the bottom holding my Copics.

I use clear bookends that I found at IKEA for dividers within the white cube bottom. Then, to further separate the markers, I slid in some Cuttlebug embossing folders that I rarely use. Not the prettiest, but it works! Here is a close up pic and one of the bookends.

Well, thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!

  3. Love how you have her legs hanging down :D I just love the fall colours so this card is a shoe in for me LOL! Lovely DPs and buttons as well as coloured image. Lovely touch with the pearl in her bow.

    Great storage units and organization. Love how you recycled the Cuttlebug EF :D I got a MM one from Mike's at 50% off. Looked at the ribbon ones but I have so much I would need about ten of them to put it all on LOL! Rereading Twilight as company is occupying my stamping room (aka out guest room) and I've been up late reading just like I did last Christmas. Wish she'd write the book from Edward's perspective like she started! Have a great evening.

  6. Where do you purchase your Copic markers? I have tons of stamps that I need to color in and I've been looking for them in local scrapbook stores, but so far Archiver's is the only I know that carries them.
