Year End….

Hi everyone.  This is my newest card and it’s for the “Bloobel Progressive Challenge” for May. Having several Teachers in our family, I thought it was a perfect card to send to one of them.  By this time of the year I thought that they all must feel this way, not just the students! Don’t you think so?

The cute digital image is by Bloobel and called “Bored at Work.” He’s been colored with my Copic Markers, White Gelly Roll Pen, and Prisma Pencils.

I used a Spellbinger Die for the basic background shapes and then used the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Speech Bubble and Sentiment are both computer generated.

The Pattern Papers are more “Oldies” that I dug out of my 8½ x 11 drawer. Sorry, but neither had a name on them. The Red Cardstock was a scrap.

I hope you were able to grab this free image and enter the challenge.  If not, sign up so you can get the Free June Image when it’s released.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Ladies….

This card is for the “Crafty Awesomeness” May Challenge.  The featured artist this month is Digital Artist Rick St. Dennis. I chose this saucy lady called “Morning Goddess Edie.” I loved all the cats gathered around her feet and meowing for their breakfast! How many of you go through the name thing each morning?

I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and dotted the background with a Gray Copic Marker and with White Opal Liquid Pearls. The Paper I used is from a stack called “Animal Prints” by America Crafts.  I had just picked it up on sale at a Beals Outlet and thought it would go perfect with the cats.

I used the Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies by Gina Marie and also the Bottle Cap Letters by Die-Namics by MFT.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you grab an image and play along with us this month.

I’m NOT Angry!!!!!!!

This is the image for the first Progressive Challenge hosted by the Queen of Quirky – Lisa Graham, owner of Bloobel Digital Stamps.  When I first saw the image, I  had absolutely no idea of what I could or would do with it. Then things slowly fell into place. 🙂

I colored the image with my favorite coloring medium, my Copic Markers and some parts are enhanced with my Prisma Colored Pencils. I also used a little touch of Yellow Ochre Color Box Chalk Ink to make the grass pop.

The word bubble and letters are computer generated, but the letters on the wooden sign are made with the Die-namics Bottle Cap letter dies by My Favorite Things. The Clouds and Grass dies are also by Die-namics and should still be available at MY Favorite Things online store.

I usually make my own card bases, but this time I’m using a 5 x 6-1/2 pre-made base by Recollections.  Since they come in a set of 50 cards and envelopes, using them does save time. My patterned paper is a single  sheet by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. I usually buy these when they have a half-price sale on all the Paper Studio Papers, which they seem to have every few weeks.

The Challenge runs until the end of January, but the image is no longer free now. It may be purchased or you may wait until next month and request the February image. If you want to join in the future Bloobel Progressive Challenges, please sign up for her newsletter that insures you will get the image request each month.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Hug 4 – U

This is my Design Team Post for The October “Crafty Awesomeness” Monthly Challenge. The adorable image is a digital one from Sasayaki Glitter “Midsummer night’s dream”, which I colored with Copic Markers.  It’s available here. I thought it made a perfect Christmas Card.

I used a  pre-made card base by Recollections from Michaels. All the patterned papers are from a Christmas Stack that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby and is called “Snow Day” by The Paper Studio.

The small letters are from the Bottle Cap Dies from Die-namics by My Favorite Things and the number and larger letter is by Momenta and was purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The “Wonky” Ovals are also from MFT.

I also used my Corner Chomper and some Foam Adhesive Dots to pop my embellishments.
