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!

Let It Snow….

There’s no chance for snow or a snowman here in the deep South, but I sure did enjoy getting another Christmas Card done.  Isn’t he cute?

The Image is from a set of clear Stampendous Stamps called “Build A Snowman” that I bought last year.  He’s colored with my Copic Markers and cut with a Spellbinders Decal Edge Nestability Die. The snowflake paper is from my scrap box and quite old.  The twine and the ribbon is also from my stash.

I popped the carrot nose and part of the scarf with foam pops. He’s colored with my Copic Markers. The snowflakes are dotted with Ranger Stickles and I put a rhinestones in each center.

“Eat More Ham”…

…Can’t you just hear him saying bleating that?  I sure can.  I really felt for him when I saw this image for the first time and just had to have it for a Thanks Giving card.  I have some very quirky friends who will love it.

I made this card for our current monthly “Just-For-Fun Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.  We always have some nice sketches to follow.

The image is a digital one by Boobel and is named “Turkey”. He is priced at only $1.50 right now. I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers, a few Prisma Colored Pencils, and I highlighted him with black and red Sakura Pens. I also used Color Box Chestnut Roan Ink to highlight the image. I fussy-cut and popped him with foam tabs, and I couldn’t resist giving him some Google Eyes.

The papers are from a Cloud 9 Stack called “Speciality Papers” and is quite old. It’s a great stack because it covers all 4 seasons.

The letters are cut from the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The assorted Sequins, which come in several boxed color sets, are also from MFT. I also used 2 of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies because I can never get them all cut the same size! LOL.

A Hug 4 – U

This is my Design Team Post for The October “Crafty Awesomeness” Monthly Challenge. The adorable image is a digital one from Sasayaki Glitter “Midsummer night’s dream”, which I colored with Copic Markers.  It’s available here. I thought it made a perfect Christmas Card.

I used a  pre-made card base by Recollections from Michaels. All the patterned papers are from a Christmas Stack that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby and is called “Snow Day” by The Paper Studio.

The small letters are from the Bottle Cap Dies from Die-namics by My Favorite Things and the number and larger letter is by Momenta and was purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The “Wonky” Ovals are also from MFT.

I also used my Corner Chomper and some Foam Adhesive Dots to pop my embellishments.
