Hawaiian Mermaid….

This darling image is called the “Hawaiian Mermaid” and is by digital artist Francesca Lopez. This image is the latest for her Progressional Challenge at her CUTE AS A BUTTON” site.

I had originally wanted to make her a “puzzle” card, but I cut the image out and couldn’t do that. I went ahead and built the card inside of the “Shaker Dome” anyway, which you can get from our own Samantha, AKA MsWipz, on Ebay. The Domes are a joy to work with.

The image is colored with my Copic Markers and surrounded by an assortment of Dies.  I used the following: Happy Birthday and Music Notes are by Die-namics from My Favorite Things; the Magical Castle and Seaweed are by Gina Marie Dies. I also used a Circle Nestability Die by Spellbinders.

I topped the card with a layer of white paper, which I embossed with an Embossing Folder called “Tide.” This folder was made by Memory Maker’s “Life Time” Crafts. I finished it off by wrapping the Dome with Twine, which was also made by Memory Makers. I don’t know the name of the “Sand-looking” paper, but the blue background paper is by Sandy Lion. The Gold Paper is from My Favorite Things. I also used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.

A Speedy Recovery to you….

This is a great little stamp by Wisk Of Joy.  Unfortunately, the stamp company has closed, so as far as I know it’s no longer being sold. I’ve used it several times before, and now I find myself pulling it out again for a friend who just suffered a very serious injury. I hope it cheers him up!

I colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  The corners were made with a Friskars Corner Punch that I’ve had for ages. The letters are from a die set by Die-namics from MFT. Papers are from the “Giddy-Up” Paper Pad by Carta Bella. The sheet with the diamond shapes was in my stash.

I’m Coming To Get You…

This wonderful Free “Mummy” Digital image is the latest Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image by the wonderful digital artist…Janice Cullen Cullyer of Scrapper’s Delights. Most of you probably know the drill by now, but if not here’s what you do:

The image is Free to first time users or for those who requested the last Progressive Image and used it to enter the Blog Challenge.  If you requested the image and didn’t get to use it, you can get this one for $1 at Janice’s store.  It’s as simple as that.

I chose to make an Easel Card this time. I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils. She is “popped” with a very thick layer of foam tape under the head and then I used thinner pops for the body.  It gives a nice 3-D effect.

The wonderful background paper is from a Graphic 45 Paper Stack called “Happy Halloween.”  I’ve added a few extra tree branches that were cut from a Tim Holtz Alterations Die called “On The Edge.” The Clothes Pins were bought at a post Halloween sale last year at Michaels’ Craft Store and are by Recollections.  The Puffy Halloween Sticker was from my stash and is made by Momenta.

Don’t miss out on the fun and a chance to win some free images.

Back To School….

It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over and the kids are going back to school soon.  This cute card will be sent to a child just starting Kindergarten.  It will also be entered into the ADFD Challenge Blog, which asked for a card made with “School Paper.”

The Apple image is by A Day For Daisies, which just happens to be one of my favorite digital stores. This cute image can be found there, but please check out her other lovely images of women, children, mermaids, animals, fantasy themes, etc. The images just seem to “flow” from her pen.

The patterned paper is called “School Days” and is an “Oldie” by Provo Craft and dated 1995. The blue and white paper on the corners was cut from a sheet of matching paper called “School Days Quilt.” The ruler ribbon is from JoAnns and the sticker was in my stash.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is typed on my computer and cut with a Spellbinders Die, and I also used a Gina Marie Die called “Stitched Hexagon.” The apple is fussy-cut and the worm and leaves are 3-D.  I used foam dots for this.

Hugs And Kisses….

Isn’t she just the cutest little girl? You can get her if you hop on over to Scrapper’s Delights and grab your copy of Sakura – 1.  She’s the next free image in Janice Cullen Collyer’s Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge.

I love the idea that she can be used for so many occasions, although the “Heart” certainly speaks to me of “Love!” How would you choose to use her?

I used my Copic Markers to color the image and highlighted her shoes with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen. I cut her out and placed her against this sheet of Valentine paper from K & Company.  I loved this entire stack, but sadly I only have a few sheets left.  The Twine is from Making Memories.
