Arielle- Christmas Candy Cane Elf

Hello crafty friends!

I created this card as a Guest Designer for Faery Ink! The one day fae called "Arielle Christmas Candy Cane Elf" is now available for purchase with both versions of the image, with or without wings! For my project, I used it without the wings. I am really happy with how this card turned out! I gave this card to my niece this Christmas and she loved it!


I colored the image in my copic markers as usual in some none traditional colors. I used some super adorable sprinkles and patterned paper from Doodlebug Design's "Here Comes Santa Claus" line this year! I also used a few die cuts from Lawn Fawn in my card and inked my edges in "Vintage Photo" by Ranger/Distress Ink.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you go and grab this cutie to make some creations yourself! Have a great day!

Happy Snowflake Season!

Can you believe Christmas is this weekend?!

I certainly can't! It has come way too fast for me this year. I didn't even get all my decorations up this time, so it's a good thing there's one every year haha! Anyway, I'm here to share with you a creation I made for Paper Nest Dolls using "Avery with Bear Friend" . This is one of the few Christmas cards I made this year. I'm hoping to make many more for next year! Anyway, I hope that you like it, I'm really happy with how it turned out!


I colored the image with my copics as usual and added some distressing and die cuts to accent the image, along with a sentiment. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug's "Sugarplums" and "Polar Pals" lines from last Christmas-- it is sadly no longer available. The die cuts I added are from Cottage Cutz and La La Land Crafts.

I hope that you liked my project today! I didn't write down the copic combos I used but they are in the R, RV, B, and BG family for most of it and of course E's for hair and teddy :). Thank you again for stopping by! Don't forget to enter some creations of your own over at Paper Nest Dolls "Anything Goes" Challenge this month!

Warm Drink Cold Day

What's better than a Warm Drink on a Cold Day?


Well, nothing other than having a Snow Day and coloring the day away ;) .  By the time you read this post however, my snow day will be over but that is exactly what I plan to do with it. I love snow, it might sound odd to those places that get hammered with winter storms but it is rare to have on the valley floor here at my home--mostly just in the mountain areas! I'll consider it a late birthday present since my birthday was the 10th, haha! Anyway, I am the Guest Designer for Faery Ink this month and sadly this is my last post. Thank you for the amazing opportunity, Amanda! I hope to work together again down the road :). For my last project, I used  Faery Ink "Aja Warm Drink Cold Day" for a wintery creation. I hope that it inspires you! You can also find my post on the Faery Ink Blog.





I colored the image in my copic markers using some of my favorite purple and blue combos. I used some adorable patterned papers by C.C. Designs |("Snowy Day" and Doodlebug Design ("Polar Pals") for the backdrop as well as a couple die cuts from C.C Designs and Lawn Fawn! The lace I used is from Live & Love Crafts which is sadly closing down soon ! I also inked the edges in Distress Ink "Vintage Photo". The card base is from Bazill's Card Shoppe line in "Robin Egg".

Hat- B000, BV02, BV13, BV08
Scarf- BV63, BV66, BV69
