Happy Birthday….

Happy New Year everyone.  I’ve been very show at getting back in the crafting mood, but this special card request did it.

I had a request for a birthday card for someone whom loves to clean.  Here’s what I did.  I chose an image I had from digital artist Janice Cullen Collyer and you can find the image here.

The image is colored with my Copic Markers and I used Sharpie to hand write the sentiment.  The Happy Birthday is made with a MY Favorite Things Die-Namic Die.

 

Meowy Christmas….

Hi again.  It’s time for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge at the Crafting Circle.com.  Since I still needed Christmas Cards, I chose this cute digi  image called “Meowy Christmas” to use.  It can be found here at the Bugaboo online stamp store.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used some white craft paint to highlight the fur on the cap. I also made two layers for the nose and layered it with foam pops.

I plan to make several of these cards to send to my friends who are cat lovers.

Pop on over to Bugaboo and see the great collection of Christmas images that she has and she adds more each week.

Merry Christmas….

It’s time for our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at The Crafting Circle.com.  This time we could make any type of card so I chose to make another Christmas Card for my pile, which is slowly growing.  I better get moving ’cause it will be here before we know it!

I used a pre-made card base from Hobby Lobby.  The black and white striped paper is by Canvas Corp. and was a scrap from a previous card.  I fell in love with the paper with the old car with the Christmas tree on top and just had to buy it.  It’s a single sheet by The Paper Studio and is sold at Hobby Lobby.

I turned this into a shaker card using the “Merri Christmas” Die Circle and matching plastic dome.  These are both by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. I used a single circle punch for the black dots on the paper and put a shaker “flake” on each one.  I probably should have dry embossed the card background, but I didn’t think of it in time. The “flakes” are from Hobby Lobby.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries into the challenge.

Birthday Fishes….

Hi again,

It’s time for our monthly “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle, and I’ve decided this time to make a Birthday Card. I chose to use this adorable image called “Birthday Fishes.”

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers. The Card Base is made from a Kraft Cardstock by My Favorite Things.  The Pattern Paper is from a stack called “Fun & Frolic” also by MFT.

Don’t forget to check out the online Bugaboo Store for all your upcoming holiday stamps.  And while you’re there, don’t forget to pick up your Friday Freebie and check out their weekly sales.

Thanks for stopping by, Dee.

With Sympathy….

It’s time again for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge on Crafting Circle.Com.  For the month of October our DT was to make a Color on Color Card.  I chose White on White.  We could add a pop of color and I chose to use Silver.

Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make but I needed one, and I just thought this would work out well. The Large Die Cut is by Die’sire from Crafters Companion and bought at Hobby Lobby.  The Banner Cut is by Hero Arts and is part of their Stamp & Cut line. It comes with two different size die Banners and an assortment of stamped sentiments to use with either banner.  I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of this set.

The Silver Paper was from my scraps. The Butterflies are made from an older Martha Stewart Punch.

Thanks, Dee.  Please come and join us this month.
