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.

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.

Put On Your Red, White & Blue….

If it’s July in America then it’s time to wear your Red, White and Blue and help celebrate the 4th of July!

For this month’s Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I’ve chosen to use this digi by Scrapper’s Delight called “Lady Constance.”  (It was also the pick for their Progressive Challenge on their FB page.)

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and outlined some part of it with a white Prisma Pencil so it would stand out agains the dark background.  The patterned paper is a scrap of double-sided paper called “Liberty Fireworks” by Bo Bunny, that I thought went great with the 4th of July theme.  The stickers are by “Life’s Little Occasions” and originally came from Joanns.

Thanks you for stopping by.

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.
