Spooky Time….

Our featured artist for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for September is non other than the very gifted artist Mr. Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Excavation for Skulls” and is available here. Rick has some great images that cover all occasions, but I especially like his “Spooky” ones. This one will give me a start on my Halloween Cards for this year.

The image was colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils and was cut with my “Wonky Ovals” Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Rolled Flower Roses and other flowers are also made from Dies by Die-namics. The Branch Die is a Tim Holtz by Sizzix one.  The “Sequins” are from My Favorite Things and the other Black Decorations are from Hobby Lobby.

Please come and join us and maybe you’ll be this month’s winner.

Get Well…

This is my card for the Bugaboo Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at the Crafting Circle.con for August. This cute Digi Stamp is called “Clyde – Get Well,” and it’s one of the newer images available at Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  Make sure to check them out for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie image.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils for highlighting. To add a little sparkle, I’ve dotted the background with “Star Dust” Stickles by Ranger. The Buttons are made from a Die-namic Die by My Favorite Things.  The patterned paper was a remnant from my stash.  I used a Corner Rounder on the corners.

Good luck with your entry.

Love Bug Hello….

Welcome to the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for August.  Our featured digital stamped images this month are from Kitty Bee Designs. The one I’m using is called the “Flower Love Bug” and can be found here. 

I colored the image using my Copic Markers and highlighted it with a white pen.  The checked patterned paper cardstock is from the “It’s A Boy” Dots and Stripes by Carta Bella. I used the Die-Namics “Hello” Die by My Favorite Things.  The Foliage is a die by Memory Box and I believe the Stitched Rectangles might be a Gina Marie Die, but I’m not completely certain. The Corners were in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and please join us in the challenge.

Just Flying By….

This card was made following a sketch from The Crafting Circle Monthly Blog.  The image used on the card is one issued by Bloobel for their May Progressive Challenge.  The image is called “Fairy Pig.”

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  I used Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Dies and Rectangle Dies.  The Happy Birthday is a new die I just bought by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Type was computer set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Challenges Entered:

The Deep Blue Sea….

I really think this digital image by Bloobel made for a very unique card, especially since I have several friends who love to skin dive.  The image is called “Swimming Diver” and was released as the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for July.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.   I also used a touch of “Diamond Glaze” on the goggles and bubbles.  I then fussy-cut the image and attached her with foam pops.

I think I found the perfect pattern papers in my stash to use on this card. The “Sand/Beach” paper was a single sheet of paper by DCWV that I’ve had for several years, and the “Water” paper was from the “Happy Place” stack by Dean Lizzy for American Crafts.

The Dies are by Gena Marie, Die-Namics, and Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great summer and keeping cool!
