Happy Halloween.

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 9:36 am

Good morning, well  3 out of 4 of us our sick now. I’m still holding strong but starting to waver a bit. I keep drinking my OJ and taking my vit. C but I think the bug might be starting to win. Fingers crossed we can atleast get through for the weekend for the trick or treaters. I hope the weather will cooperate, Please, please, please Mother Nature. Fingers crossed.

Todays card is another digital image that I got from Whimsie Doodles. I love this girl with her little glasses.  I coloured her with my copics added some crystal lacquer to her glasses. The patterned paper is from a Halloween paper pack that I got from SU a couple of years ago.

The sentiment is also from Whimsie Doodles. I inked the edges and added a few glittery gems.

Hope you have a wonderful dry, healthy Halloween.

HP Sketch challenge

Filed under: Cards, The Town Scrapper — angiebaker @ 8:57 am

Good morning ladies.  Here’ my DT card which was suppose to be part of the sketch challenge over at the Humble Pie blog challenge but I apparently goofed and didn’t use a HP image, Duh…my bad 😦 lol

You can see the other DT cards here.

Anyway I used Emma from CC designs and followed the sketch and here’s what I came up with.

The paper is from a Stampin Up Designer pad that I got from Kimmie and Andrea’s sale. I coloured Emma in with my copics. I added some crystal lacquer to the apple but it didn’t photograph very well. The pencil was from another piece of patterned paper that I pieced together to make it longer. The sentiment is from the Autumn Amy R sentiments.

If you would like to participate in this weeks challenge hop on over to the Humble Pie  Blog and take a peak.

Have a great day!

Whimsie Doodles

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 2:04 pm

I have fallen in love with these Whimsie Doodle digital images. Sitting at my computer shopping in my jammies and  I have my images in minutes. Who wouldn’t love that. AND seriously they are sooooooo adorable and a really clean crisp image.

So I bought a few of them, lol. The first being this little girl named Hope Fights. I love her with her with her fighting gloves on and I adore the sentiment. All the proceeds go to Breast cancer research.

I coloured Hope with my copics, added a bit of crystal lacquer to her gloves to make them stand out a bit. I layered her on different shades of pink, one being Bazzil. I stamped some flourishes on my patterned paper and cut the sentiment out with my nesties. I pop dotted everything and viola. Isn’t she adorable.

You can get these adorable images and more at:  Be sure to check back I have an adorable witch to show you. You’ll love her.

Have a great day.

High Hopes

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 1:58 pm

Hope you’re enjoying this sunny fall afternoon. I think I may head outside shortly and enjoy some of it while I can. I should probably be doing a bit of house work like this little cutie, …but it’s Sunday, I day of rest, right. lol

I coloured the image in with my copic markers cut her out with my nestablilties and added some ribbon, buttons and flowers to match.  Guess where I got the paper, yup…the $ store. lol 

I should probably run now and do something with my day. Maybe we’ll carve or pumpkins…hmmm

I have been productive and made six cards this morning with leftover materials from my class yesterday. Thanks to all the ladies that came out,  I had a lot of fun.

Have a great day!

Upcoming class.

Filed under: Classes, Scrappin' Great Deals — angiebaker @ 8:57 am

Well if you don’t have plans this Saturday the 24th,  you can come join me at SGD for two classes. The first being this cute Halloween treat basket. In four different styles. So you can give them to those favourite little people in your life.

We’ll be using a wide variety of tools and techniques AND copic markers. How could you say no. 🙂

So if you’re interested give Sheila a call at the store 519-473-5751 and reserve your spot. The class is from 10:30- 1:30.

And if you haven’t had enough of me, lol. You could stay for my second class and we’ll be using flower soft, plus a bunch of other stuff as well. Again we’ll be using copics. I can’t seem to do a project anymore without using my precious copics. I love em so much.

Anyway that class is from 2-4. So if you need some “me” time this weekend and you’ve been itching to do some papercrafting, we’ll being doing tons of stuff.

If you click on “classes” to the right of this page you’ll see a couple of the other projects we’ll be working on.

Have a fabulous day.

B-day card

Filed under: Cards, Scrappin' Great Deals — angiebaker @ 2:43 pm

What a fantastic weekend!!! My big sis came down this past weekend and we headed out to SGD garage sale. We both found lots of goodies but I think I did pretty awesome cause I came home with one of those Crop in Style rolling suitcase.  For the great price of…$40 bucks. I think these things are easily 100+. So I’m pretty happy. Especially cause I’m going away on a scrapbooking retreat with some friends next month. Woo Hoo!!! Can’t wait.

So we shopped and shopped and then we decided to invite the girls over that night and colour and drink and stamp some more.  It was so much fun. AND my kids stayed in bed, so that made it even better. lol

This is my hubby’s  birthday card from thursday. I used my sister’s high hopes stamp, I thought it was  pretty appropriate for Mark cause he’s a lansdcaper so he’s always in the dirt. lol He also likes to mountain bike so really, he’s always playin in the dirt in some way or another. 😉

I coloured him in using my copics, of course right. I also inked the edges with my new Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink. The paper is from the Scrapbooking store in Mildmay. I added some Stampin Up hodge podge hardware to the corners and also some eyelets.

I stamped the sentiment onto this paper that looks like sand and added a little hemp bow that I made with my bow easy. I love that thing. Sheila sell them at SGD and they make I think 7 different sizes of bows ranging in size from 3in to little tiny ones. It makes a perfectly flat bow for your cards. You’ll love it.

Also if you like to do card challengs you can hop on over to the Humble Pie blog and participate in this weeks challenge.

Hope you have a great day.

Good morning my peeps, lol

Well look at this handsome fella. This is my hubby Mark and today is his birthday.

Whiff Of Joy

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 8:30 am

Good morning everyone. Well at least the rain held off til today. But man was it cold up at my parents house. I actual saw a tiny bit of snow. Just for a minute, it tried.

Todays card I thought looked perfect for today, I think that’s what I may do after I drop Dylan off at school.  Grab a book and sit and snuggle with Cory.

I coloured Willow with hot chocolate in with my copics, cut her out with my friends nesties. Added a couple of flowers with  teal metallic dew drops. A strip of unknown designer paper with some ribbon on top. To finish it I added a rub on sentiment from Stampin Up.

Another colour combo that I love.

I took this and a bunch of other cards up to the Scrapbooking store in Mildmay to add to my basket. And Patti the store owner told me she has people asking for “Angie Baker cards.”  Those are the words out of her mouth. I told her I thought she was full of it, lol  but it made me feel really good. *happy dance*

Hope you all have a great day and relax with a mug of your favourite hot drink. The laundry and housework can wait, lol.

Humble Pie Challenge

Filed under: Cards, The Town Scrapper — angiebaker @ 8:16 am

Happy Thanksgiving weekend ladies. Today’s Humble Pie card challenge was to use scallops. So I mounted my $ store “designer” paper onto some scalloped blue cs that came with my Scallop & Rick Rack box of cards. I used my digi Ellie stamp cause I didn’t have the rubber at the time. So she’s actually a bit smaller then the actual stamp. I coloured her with my copics, added some crystal lacquer to her umbrella and boots. Then trimmed her out and pop dotted her.


I embossed the green paper with one of my CB folders. The blue polka-dotted paper is another $ store find and the yellow, and the glitter cs is. I think I have the best luck when I go shopping there. lol. Anyway I used my SU scallop punch to make the clouds, and I embossed them using my swirl CB folder, then popped them up as well. The ribbon was from my stash and I added a few flowers in the grass with a few dew drops.

Now hop on over to the Humble Pie blog to check out the rest of the diva’s cards.

Have a fantastic long weekend!!

Swiss Pixie

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 10:05 am

Hi there, I couldn’t wait to use this adorable Swiss Pixie from CCdesigns, and I finally got something put together. Last night I got five cards finished. I thought that was pretty good, I had the images already coloured so it was just assembling them and how I wanted to lay them out.

So I coloured my swiss pixie with my copics and used my Martha Stewart border punch on the DCWV glitter paper pop dotted my image added a few dew drops under the sentiment which is from the  Amy R Autumn set. Added a few flowers with a button and some brads. Voila. Ain’t she cute?!!

Don’t forget to hop on over to the Humble Pie blog for a chance to win some blog candy.
