Fairy Love ...

Good afternoon! I'm hosting the Art by Miran Blog today. Our "Theme" this month is Three (3) of One (1) Item.


This beauty is called Fairy Shaylee, and she is one of the many Digital Stamps available in the Art by Miran Etsy Store. This is the first image I colored after not touching my Copic Markers for over 2-weeks during the holidays. I have to admit, I printed several copies until I remembered how to color. :-)


I used a large variety of Copic Markers, and forgot to keep track of them. I also used a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen on Shaylee's Wings, and added Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the flowers. My "Three of One Item" are the enamel dots.

We would love for you to become a follower of the Art by Miran Blog and Artbymiran FB Page, along with visiting our shop to see all of the wonderful images Art by Miran has to offer.

All My Love ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Inky Impressions Inspirational Blog today with a card that is perfect for that special someone in your life.


Valentine's Day is fast approaching and the All My Love Sentiment Ticket is just perfect! You can do as I did, create a background and have the sentiment be the focal point OR you can match the sentiment with a sweet image. There are many options in the Inky Impressions Store, however, two of the newest ones caught my eye ... LiLi Blowing Bubbles (hearts) and Niko's Cookie (heart shaped).

I printed several copies of the sentiment, and fussy cut them out. I thought about how I would showcase the sentiment. I then went into my dies and found a new die from MFT called Floral Fusion CU that I haven't had a chance to use yet. Cut it out in white and layered it onto my cherry red cardstock. I then put the sentiment tickets through my Xyrox Sticker Maker and layered them onto more cherry red cardstock; centering them. My final step was to add some lines to the sentiment ticket using a ruler and my 0.3 Black Copic MultiLiner, colored half of the lines in red with another MultiLiner, ran it thru my Xyrox and layered it over the center sentiment.

Sami Stamps Floral Brides Take 2 ...

Good morning and Happy Friday. Sami Stamps Released a collection of absolutely gorgeous Floral Brides last week. I just couldn't create a project with just one of them, so this week I have another Bride to share with you!


This beautiful stamp is called Lily Bride. I printed her twice, and used my trusty Copic Markers along with a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen to color one of the images. Once complete she was fussy cut out (without her veil), and paper-pieced on the second copy that was embossed with my Linen & Canvas Impression Plate from Papertry Ink. I added a SRM Sticker Sentiment and some Enamel Dots to finish my card.

Copics: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, BV20, BV23 (skin)
W3, W5, W7, W9 (hair), E01, YG03 (flowers)
E0000, Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen (dress)
Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen (veil)

Now lets look at all of the images being released.

Keep Calm and Drink Coffee ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Inky Impressions Inspirational Blog today with a card that is perfect for the "coffee lover" in your life.


I'm not a coffee drinker myself, more of a Coca-Cola drinker first thing in the morning. However, I do know a lot of people who require a cup of coffee (or more than 1-cup) to start their day. The newly released Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Sentiment from Inky Impressions is perfect for those coffee lovers in your life.

After printing the sentiment, I fussy cut it out and colored the frame with my Black 0.5 Copic Multi-Liner, and then colored in the coffee mug with E51, E53 & E55. Popped the sentiment on my cardstock with part of a 3D Foam Sheet, and added some enamel dots in the corners. Love the CAS design!

Sami Stamps Floral Brides Release ...

Good morning and Happy Friday! It's the 1st Release of 2015 from Sami Stamps, and you just have to see the beautiful Floral Brides!


I colored up four (4) copies of the beautiful Single Lily Bride, and couldn't decide on which one to use for today's project. So I went outside my comfort zone and created a shadow box to feature all 4 of the colored beauties. I'm calling it my Bridal Shop Shadow Box. 


Here's a closer look ...

Now lets look at all of the images being released.
