The Deep Blue Sea….

I really think this digital image by Bloobel made for a very unique card, especially since I have several friends who love to skin dive.  The image is called “Swimming Diver” and was released as the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for July.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.   I also used a touch of “Diamond Glaze” on the goggles and bubbles.  I then fussy-cut the image and attached her with foam pops.

I think I found the perfect pattern papers in my stash to use on this card. The “Sand/Beach” paper was a single sheet of paper by DCWV that I’ve had for several years, and the “Water” paper was from the “Happy Place” stack by Dean Lizzy for American Crafts.

The Dies are by Gena Marie, Die-Namics, and Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great summer and keeping cool!

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.

Bookmark…

My project this month for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge is a Bookmark. Here in the U.S.A., we will be celebrating our Independence on the 4th of July next month and this image hits the spot.  She’s called, “Stella Calendar Month July USA.” I also really liked the sentiment that went with it. LOL.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a Gold Prisma Pencil. I’m not sure who makes the pattern paper that I used, as I have had it for ages and didn’t find a name on the back. It’s from a 12×12 single sheet of paper so maybe it’s from Joanns or Michaels.

I also used small magnets so the Bookmark will hold securely to the page.  I’ve had several fall out of my book lately and it’s very frustrating to try and find my place again. I think this will solve that problem.

I hope you’ll come and join us and good luck with winning something. Also – don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Store for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie.

Puddles…Oh My….

This is my newest card. It was made with a free digi called “Rainy Days” which was offered for the Scrapper’s Delight April Progressive Challenge. I sure wish we had some puddles down here.  It’s hot and dry as can be. I don’t think we’ve had any April Showers this year!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and the Sentiment is computer printed.  I’ve used a sheet of Pattern Paper from the MFT paper stack called “Plaid Patterns.” I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score the bottom inch of the card and finished that off with rounded corners and a bit of blue and white Twine from my stash. The Blue Sequins are also from My Favorite Things.

I then used a Hexagon Die from Gina Marie which I traced around and hand-cut out.

 

 

 

 

HELLO….

Hello everyone.  This card is for the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for April.  The Digi is part of a set of flowers that Lisa did and one in which we could pick out the image we wanted to color for this month’s Challenge.  I chose “Arthur Aster.” Check them out and see which one you like the best.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers.  The papers were all from my scraps folder.  The “Hello” die is by Momenta and bought at Hobby Lobby. The Cloud and Banner die are Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Corners are done by a Fiskars Corner Punch.

I hope you were able to get your image in time to enter this month’s challenge. If so, you are eligible for next month’s free digi.  If not, you can buy it and enter.
