Merry Christmas….

It’s time for our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at The Crafting Circle.com.  This time we could make any type of card so I chose to make another Christmas Card for my pile, which is slowly growing.  I better get moving ’cause it will be here before we know it!

I used a pre-made card base from Hobby Lobby.  The black and white striped paper is by Canvas Corp. and was a scrap from a previous card.  I fell in love with the paper with the old car with the Christmas tree on top and just had to buy it.  It’s a single sheet by The Paper Studio and is sold at Hobby Lobby.

I turned this into a shaker card using the “Merri Christmas” Die Circle and matching plastic dome.  These are both by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. I used a single circle punch for the black dots on the paper and put a shaker “flake” on each one.  I probably should have dry embossed the card background, but I didn’t think of it in time. The “flakes” are from Hobby Lobby.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries into the challenge.

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.

Hello Ladies….

This card is for the “Crafty Awesomeness” May Challenge.  The featured artist this month is Digital Artist Rick St. Dennis. I chose this saucy lady called “Morning Goddess Edie.” I loved all the cats gathered around her feet and meowing for their breakfast! How many of you go through the name thing each morning?

I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and dotted the background with a Gray Copic Marker and with White Opal Liquid Pearls. The Paper I used is from a stack called “Animal Prints” by America Crafts.  I had just picked it up on sale at a Beals Outlet and thought it would go perfect with the cats.

I used the Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies by Gina Marie and also the Bottle Cap Letters by Die-Namics by MFT.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you grab an image and play along with us this month.

Back To School….

It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over and the kids are going back to school soon.  This cute card will be sent to a child just starting Kindergarten.  It will also be entered into the ADFD Challenge Blog, which asked for a card made with “School Paper.”

The Apple image is by A Day For Daisies, which just happens to be one of my favorite digital stores. This cute image can be found there, but please check out her other lovely images of women, children, mermaids, animals, fantasy themes, etc. The images just seem to “flow” from her pen.

The patterned paper is called “School Days” and is an “Oldie” by Provo Craft and dated 1995. The blue and white paper on the corners was cut from a sheet of matching paper called “School Days Quilt.” The ruler ribbon is from JoAnns and the sticker was in my stash.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is typed on my computer and cut with a Spellbinders Die, and I also used a Gina Marie Die called “Stitched Hexagon.” The apple is fussy-cut and the worm and leaves are 3-D.  I used foam dots for this.

“I’d Walk A Million Miles…

…For One Of Your Smiles…MY MAMMIE!  This is from the original 1927 version of the very first “Talkie” movie “The Jazz Singer” staring Al Jolson. I can remember watching it with my parents when I was a child and it was WAY old then.  I much prefer the 1980 adaptation staring Neil Diamond.

This idea popped into my head when I first saw the new “Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image” from Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delight.  If you did the last challenge, you can get this image free or you can buy it for $1.00 from the Scrapper’s Delight store HERE.

The image was colored with Copic Markers and the saying was computer generated.  Card Base is by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby and the solid Card Stock is by “Recollections.” The Patterned Paper is by g.c.d. Studios. The hat and hand have been popped with Foam Dots, also from Hobby Lobby.
