Well, I decided to enter the Twisted Tuesday Challenge last week - since it was about CHOCOLATE!! And I am DEFINATELY a Chocoholic!!! The challenge was 2TC48, the main challenge was what was used to color with (and Copics were mentione and they are what I use!), but the twist was to use something "chocolate" in the card. SO - I knew I coulf do that one!! I used DP that had chocolate chips on it, and a stamped image from a retired SU stamp I had. I colored the candy bar and wrapper with Copics, and used glitter on the foil in the wrapper. Also used Baker's Twine that was a chocolate color. Some chocolate colored bling was put in the lower corners of the card. ENJOY!!

Hi Everyone!! FINALLY!! I got this one to post!! This card is made from the image from Round #7 of the Unidentified Image swap! Thank you Carol for such a cute image!! All I could think of was "dancing - what should I use?". I found the DP, and got started! This image is SO cute!! I colored it with Copic markers - E00, E17, R32, C10, BG72, R81 & RV 23. I applied the DPs to the CS, also using some ribbon to make the "seam" look more finished. The small pearls were applied in the lower left corner of the card. The pink CS in back of the image is Bazzil CS. Behind teh phrase Carol sent us is a background material - is like a plastic and you can sand it if you would like (I got it from a local scrapbook store to use on cards). Both the pictue and the phrase are raised with foam tape. Thanks again Carol for sending this image!!

Good Morning!! This card is Round #6 of the Unidentified Images Swap. Thank You Linda for such a cute image!! I really enjoyed making this card!!
I colored my image with Copic Markers, and mounted the image on foam tape to add dimension to the card. The word FRIENDS is from a set I have of stamps regarding friendship. The edging is done with a punch I had here for a project. Ribbon with footprints and fire hydrants is also some I had left from that project. Inside is a verse, "thanks for being my friend". Friendship is so very important! This card was such fun to make!! Again - Thank You Linda for hostessing this round and sending such a cute image!!

LET IT SNOW!! Round #5 of the Unidentified Image swap was hosted by Jeanette Cloyd (Forest Ranger). The image she used fit in SO well with this season - the image is from Darcie, the set it is from is Peekin' Snowman. I used Copics to color my image - B00, E29, E40, G29, R46, RV10, V12, Y17, and YR04. I also put clear glitter glue on the snowman, snow falling, and snow on the ground. DP with snowflakes on it is in the background, then a shape was cut with a template on Bazzil Cardstock that had raised dots and was placed on the background. The image was then placed on the shaped piece. An area of the card is cut off, so the front is a " flap" on the end. The Cardstock used for the card is PTI White. Under the "flap" is a small piece of light blue Cardstock with raised white dots (resembling snowflakes) on it. Then, I placed a glittery ribbon down the center, placing on the ribbon a saying Jeanette had sent us. ENJOY!!

Oh, this Unidentified Image Swap #3 has been such fun! Since I've been hostess this round, I get everyone's cards!! Anyway, Here is the card I made. The image used is the House Mouse image, Take Time to Smell the Flowers. I used Copics to color the image - colors E000, E31, E71, G10, and RV14. I framed the stamped image with dark green cardstock; then used DP with one side cut out with Nestabilities, and the other side as the background piece.Foam pieces were used to make a more defined layered look. Also, a small flower was used on the stem of the image, with the flower colored with RV14. Cardstock used for the card was SU Daffodil Delight.

This round, the Unidentified Swap was hosted ny Kelly Santi. The image Kelly sent us to use is from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, and is called "Florence". So cute!! And what a perfect image for this time of year! I colored "Florence" with Copic markers, I used the following: E000 for skin; E29, E18, and E25 for hair; RV09 and V01 for the dress; V04 for the hairband; V17 & C7 for the sunglasses; and RV23 and V01 for the socks. I cut the image out after coloring it, and placed it on sandpaper to imitate the beach sand. DPs are layered in back of the sandpaper, and I used Crystal Effects on the sunglass lenses. The phrase was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neptune CS, and was then placed over We R Memory Keepers Baker's Twine. Also, the image and phrase were elevated from the CS using foam tape, to help with the 3-D effect of the card. Enjoy the beach!

I made this card for the 1st of the Unidentified Image Swaps. Barb (barbaralynn - SCS) sent the same images to all of us in teh swap - this was interesting to see how each person did their card.
The image she sent us was from GinaK, from the set Spring Has Sprung.
I colored the image with Copic Markers. The duck is colored with Y04, the bill is Y17, and the inside of the mouth is colored with R24.
The water is colored with BG01.
The umbrella is colored with R46, the handle of the umbrella is colored with C9.

I used a circle cutter with a scalloped edge to cut the one side of the image in scallops, the Bazzill cardstock I used underneath is cut the same way. Straight edges to the remaining 3 sides.
The Cardstock from Bazzill was also used with my Cuttlebug folder for the area of raised dots.

The phrase I used I thought was fitting for this image. Ribbon was cut and placed under the phrase, as well as SU ribbon was used over the cardstock and d/p to cover raw edges.
