With Sympathy….

It’s time again for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge on Crafting Circle.Com.  For the month of October our DT was to make a Color on Color Card.  I chose White on White.  We could add a pop of color and I chose to use Silver.

Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make but I needed one, and I just thought this would work out well. The Large Die Cut is by Die’sire from Crafters Companion and bought at Hobby Lobby.  The Banner Cut is by Hero Arts and is part of their Stamp & Cut line. It comes with two different size die Banners and an assortment of stamped sentiments to use with either banner.  I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of this set.

The Silver Paper was from my scraps. The Butterflies are made from an older Martha Stewart Punch.

Thanks, Dee.  Please come and join us this month.

Wishing Ewe….

Sorry that my Bugaboo Crafty Challenge for September is so late, but we were caught in the middle of Hurricane Irma and things are just now getting back to normal here.

I was thrilled to be able to do another card for my Christmas pile.  This cute little digi and sentiment is called “Merry Christmas to Ewe” and both can be found here on the Bugaboo Store site.  Don’t you just love that cute little face?  I sure do.

My papers are from a stack by “The Paper Studio” called “Snow Day” and bought at Hobby Lobby.  I’ve had it a few years now and I still love this aqua and red combination for Christmas.  I’m hoping that I can find a new stack this year that I love as much as I do this one. If you’ve found any that you really like, please let me know.

I’ve colored my image with Copic Markers, picking up the colors in the paper.  I decided to make it a shaker card using these smaller shaker windows that I had just bought from My Favorite Things.  Unfortunately, I found the smaller window harder for me to work with, as some of the styrofoam “snow balls” were just a tad too big and they were a tight fit. I find that they don’t shake as well as I would like them to.

The Twine was from my stash and the large circle ring is cut with a Die-Namic die also from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them. Good luck with your entry.

Get Well…

This is my card for the Bugaboo Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at the Crafting Circle.con for August. This cute Digi Stamp is called “Clyde – Get Well,” and it’s one of the newer images available at Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  Make sure to check them out for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie image.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils for highlighting. To add a little sparkle, I’ve dotted the background with “Star Dust” Stickles by Ranger. The Buttons are made from a Die-namic Die by My Favorite Things.  The patterned paper was a remnant from my stash.  I used a Corner Rounder on the corners.

Good luck with your entry.

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.

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.
