Journal Cover….

I’m doing a second Bugaboo project for our monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge and this one is WAY out of my comfort zone!  It’s a Coloring Page, which turned into quite a challenge for me.  It can be found here.

I planned to use one of my favorite Copic color combos…black, yellow, and gray, but it turned out that I needed to add another color to the mix.  I chose a pretty turquoise to compliment the other colors. I’ve also used lots of Wink-Of-Stella Clear or Black Glitter Brush Pens on the image, but it’s hard to see in the photo. I’ve added a rhinestone to the center of each of the flowers and I think it really makes them pop.

I was so pleased with how this came out that I added the date to the front and now plan to use it as a Journal Cover.

CHALLENGES I ENTERED:

Think Pink….

It’s time again for our monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge at Crafting Circle.  This time I thought I’d try something other than my usual card. I have a very dear friend who fought the “Pink Battle” and won and since she’s also an avid reader, up popped the idea of making her a “Bookmark.”

The image I used is “Pink Ribbon Gals – Vivian.” I used a heavy white cardstock from Hobby Lobby and a scrap of pink paper that was sitting on my desk.  I used my Crop-A-Dile Corner Rounder and a generic Hole Punch.  The white and pink ribbon is from my stash but originally both are from Joanns.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers. The Dress has been colored twice and popped with Foam Dots and the Ruffled was done three times. I plan to buy some small magnets to put inside, which I’ll then cover with a pattern paper. The Bookmark will open and close over the page to keep your spot.

The sentiment comes with the stamp set.

Winter Bliss…!?

This digi by Bugaboo is called “Stella Calendar Months – November.” As you know if you’ve been following me for any length of time, that Stella is my favorite Bugaboo character. I see myself in her!

This is my first project for the new “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” over at Craftingcircle. It is a new monthly prize challenge for Bugaboo stamps projects and starts on the 15th of every month. Come over and check it out and join us.  It will be lots of fun and we’ll have some great prizes.

I wanted to use a paper that looked “cold” and I think this one was perfect. I printed the image several times and used the different layers to make a 3-D Card.  I find the fussy-cutting very hard, but I’m gonna keep practicing until it gets easier.  If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to share them with me.

I colored her with Copic Markers and used a jar of Rowney White Watercolor Paint for the snow.  I also rubbed a little on the bottom part of the page to make the area look more like a snow bank. I got the affect of snow flakes by dipping the end of paint brush into the white paint and dabbing it on the card and the banner. Can’t you just see that snow piling up?

The paper is by Bo Bunny and called the “Altitude Collection.” It was from Hobby Lobby.   I’ve used Judi-Kins Diamond Glaze on her glasses and a cotton ball for her hand muff and the edge of her coat. Her earmuffs are a pink pom-pom cut in half.  I’m not sure where the one on her hat came from, but the Glass Icicles are from Joanns.

The sentiment is computer generated and the top border and Letter Banners are dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving….

For the November Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I made this cute Thanksgiving Card using a Bugaboo Digital Stamp called Ruby Calendar Month – Thanksgiving, and I’ve colored her with Copic Markers. I’ve also used a little Diamond Glaze on the pie plate and her glasses.

The Corner Dies are a set from “My Paper World.”  The papers are from a “Cloud 9 Paper Stack” called “Speciality Papers” and the Kraft Base Paper is from MFT.  The Egg Corns are from my yard.

The “Happy Thanksgiving” stamp is from MFT and was part of a Pure Innocence” Stamp Set, but I think it’s been retired.
