Paper Craftin with Erica

Copic Markers

This has to be the favorite card (or one of) I've made.  This will go to someone very special.  Anyway, I colored this image from C.C. Designs.  I then sponged around the image.  The background paper is from the Candy Floss collection by Wild Rose Studio.  Know what else I did?  I did some faux stitching… my Read More

Valentine's Day is coming up and I wanted to make Merceydeis something quick, special, and cute.  I also wanted to participate in a couple of challenges, which is perfect for the Valentine's spirit.  Here's what I came up with. I started with this cute little alien from an old Valentine stamp set (The Angel Company) and colored her Read More

Hello all... I'm back to join in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) with the Stamping Ground and a cute card made with stamps by Fun Stampers Journey and, of course, my Copics.... and a special prize for some of you!  The first FIVE people to sign up for my newsletter AND comment on this blog Read More

With this beautiful weather coming on in, I thought it would be nice to post a card in hopes that it warms up even more!!  I'm not sure how much I like this creation though, I must admit, it looks kind of neat! It's not my best coloring... I actually had quite a difficult time Read More

I made the cutest New Year's card!  I decided a "party girl" must have some funky hair and I love how it turned out!  I added lots of sparkle including a glittery hairpiece, glittered jacket, silver and blue bling stickers, a large sparkly flower brad, and liquid pearls.  I also added a "New Year" saying Read More

So, the holidays are fast approaching!  Although I'm a crafter, I broke down and ordered Holiday greeting cards this year (and, honestly, last year too).  I haven't had a whole lot of time to get crafty.  Between the new business, school, volunteering, and family, it has been a crazy mess.  Plus, my carpal tunnel syndrome Read More

I just love this stamp.  It reminds me of my daughter.  Grandma and Grandpa live on and run a dairy farm, so she is definitely a farm girl.  She also takes horse riding lessons.  Anyway, I created this card especially for the CMCC challenge "Anything Goes" with my daughter in mind. I think the coloring turned out wonderful (though I do Read More

I upgraded to the Cricut Imagine on Black Friday of last year and haven't played with it too much since then; however, I did create a card with my Cricut and Copics.  It was rather simple.  The little girls image is from MRO (love her stamps) and the rest of the stuff is from the Read More

I purchased stamps from MRO on Etsy... and I just had to make a card with one of them. Mabelle designed stamps for The Angel Company and, since TAC closed their doors, she creates them for herself.  Anyway, things have been great in Wisconsin (well, too hot I think). We hit breaking records... over 100 degrees Read More

I prepared this card for a challenge over at MarkerPop (formerly iCopic)... they are having their first challenge and blog hop.  The theme for this challenge is to color hair or fur.  I used my new favorite color... pink.  Although, as I stated in a previous post, my ultimate favorite color is purple, I have Read More
