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.

 

Life is Like….

It’s time again for our monthly “Bugaboo Challenge” at The Crafting Circle. I chose this image because it’s a little different from what I usually do, which is one of her “funky” older gals or guys.  This little guy is called “Riding A Bike,” and I loved the message that came with him.

He’s colored with my Copic Markers, and I used a Sukura Micron Black Pen to add the road and stones.  I don’t usually color in the complete background, but since it’s something I learned while taking a class at Kit and Clouder, I thought I’d give it a try.  I like how it came out and I’m sure I’ll do it again. Maybe next time it will a different medium.

The Clouds and Sun are Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.  The Peace Charm on the front of his bike is by Darice.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Digi Stamp site. She keeps adding new stamps each week and these and others are often on sale. She also has a great selection of $1 stamps.

Challenges Entered:

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.

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:

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.
