Summer Fun – Ouch!

It’s time again for the Freebie Friday Progressional Challenge at Scrapper’s Delights. For this go-round, Janice has chosen one of her adorable beach kids…Beach Babe 2. If you participated in our last challenge, you can get her here for FREE, or if you got our last image but did’t get to complete the challenge, you can buy her here for $1. Either way, please come and join us.

We were asked to use a special “twist” on the card of either “no patterned paper” or making a “shaped card.”  I chose to do the “no patterned paper, and I must say that I really found it very challenging.

I was lucky enough to find this beautiful brown paper in my stash and thought it looked perfect for a sandy beach. I’ve had it for years and it’s by the Paper Co.  I also used some scraps of different shades of blue card stock and tore strips and layered them to give the effect of waves.

The Cloud and Sun dies are from “Die-namics” by My Favorite Things, and both the Chair and the Umbrella are from “Memory Box.” The Umbrella and Fish are popped to look 3-D.

I’ve colored everything with my Copic Markers, and I also added a rhinestone from my stash for her earring.

“Memories…

pressed between the pages of my mind.”

This is a favorite song lyric of mine from a beautiful song sung by Elvis Presley.  It came to mind when I made this card for and old friend from Jr. High days.  Yep, we actually wore these skirts with all those crinolines, cinch belts, and embroidered shirts, but I don’t remember the Saddle Oxfords. In those days we mainly wore white Ked sneakers and knee-high socks.

The adorable image is called “Destiny Poodle Skirt” and is a digital image by Amanda Byron of Faery Ink, which I colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils. The papers were from  a $1 pack at Target. The Balloons, Numbers and Letter Dies are from Die-Namics, Musical Notes are by Memory Box, and I’ve also used a Flower Punch by Friskars. The small circular stamped image is by Lily of the Valley.

Time to Rock and Roll!

Hello everyone,

I’ve been in the middle of a mini “scrap room” redo to try and make my supplies more easily accessible while I’m crafting. It’s funny how you change your “style” just a little bit, and you find that you have to shuffle things around again to have them within easy reach. If not, you feel like you get up a million times to get something and that’s such a waste of precious crafting time.

Since I’ve signed up for several of the Kit and Clowder online coloring classes, I’ve been adding to my Copic Markers and my Prisma Premium Colored Pencils. I definitely want to keep all of these within easy reach. If you still haven’t tried these classes, please check them out. There’s even a free class you can take, and you can’t beat that!

Since I’ve been on Face Book, I’ve also discovered some new digital artists whose stamps range from sweet to zany and you’ll see many of them featured on my upcoming cards. They are the best of the best…IMHO.

Speaking of these new artists, my first card posted has an image by…Conie Fong. This was made for a sweet little girl who just turned 5. Thank you Conie for such a cute image.
