Birthday Bird…..

This time of the year I’ve a large number of birthday cards to make, so I thought that this cute image called “Bug Birthday – Bird 4” would be a great place to start.  This is also my card for the July “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.Com.

If you haven’t checked out the new and improved “Bugaboo” Digital Online Store, make sure you do.  She’s always got great sales going on and some of the nicest digital stamps around…and don’t forget to check out her Free Image each Friday.

I chose to color this image with my Copic Markers and also my Prisma Colored Pencils. The patterned papers were all from a new stack by Echo Park that I bought at a recent Convention. The stack is Called “Birthday Wishes.”

I cut my colored image with a Spellbinder’s Scalloped Circle Die, plus I used the Die-Namics “Bottle Cap Numbers” by My Favorite Things to cut out the date.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next time.  Good luck on the Challenge.

Happy 6th Birthday Princess!

I made this adorable 6th Birthday Card for a special little girl in my life. It reminded me so much of her with those big BROWN eyes and her hair pulled back. LOL. She’s precious.

The digital image is by Sandra Caldwell and from her “Baby Cakes” Etsy Shop.  Check her out…she has some really cute, cute images for all occasions. This one is called “Maria Carmen Party Hat” and is #1388.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and used Pattern Papers from a 6×6 paper pack by Crate Paper called “Party Day.” I used a Stitched Oval Die by Gina Marie.  Make sure to check her out too, as I think she has the best prices around on dies and all-around supplies. New items are added often.

I also used a Balloon Die by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things, which I cute twice and popped. The small sticker cupcake was in my stash as were the Rhinestones.

 

Baby Birthday….

This month on the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge we are being sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter. The first image I’m using is of an adorable baby elephant with a birthday cake.  It’s called Baby Elly’s Birthday. All these great stamps sell for under $3.  What a deal!

I wanted to do the card in bright colors and chose this green paper with white polkadots from the “Birthday Blow Out” Paper Pack. This is from a 6×6 paper pad by My Favorite Things.  They have quite a few great paper packs out now besides their solid color cardstock with matching inks.

The Pink Corner Tag was cut from a sheet of Birthday Paper from the 6×6 stack called “Birthday Wishes” and made by DCWV. The twine on the tag was from my stash. I also used my Copic Markers to color the image.  The Happy Birthday and the Wonky Circle Dies are by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The number 1 is made of chipboard. The Flowers and rhinestone were also from stash.

I hope you enjoy the card and please check out the wonderful digi stamps from Sasayaki Glitter.

Make Me A Cake?!

This is my take on the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for February.  I thought that the digi stamp was perfect for several birthdays that I had coming up later this year. The image is called “BAKE ME A CAKE” and you can find her here at Bloobel.

I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils, plus a Jelly Roll White Pen.  The die-cut Numbers are by Sizzix Momenta and bought at Hobby Lobby.  The papers were single sheets also from Hobby Lobby.

Smile…!

If this big guy doesn’t make you smile…nothing will!  His name is “Ogre” and is another of Lisa’s “Quirky” Bloobel Digital Stamps.  I wanted him for a birthday card, but I couldn’t resist putting “Smile” on the front. Inside I’ll put – It’s Your Birthday!” That should work just fine.

I made the card following Sketch #4 on the Crafting Circle “Just For Fun” Wednesday Monthly Challenge. Come over and take a peek and join us for some fun.  I love following a sketch.

I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Pencils. I used Diamond Glaze by Judi-kins on his eyes and Wink Of Stella on the background of the oval. That’s hard to see in the photo, but trust me…it looks great in person.

I’ve used two dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The first is their Stitched Ovals and the second is their Scalloped and Stitched Rectangles. The Pattern Papers are also from a MFT stack called “Rainbow Stripes.” The sentiment was hand written. Other papers and the Embroidery Floss was from my scraps.

Thanks for dropping by.
