Baby Birthday….

This month on the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge we are being sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter. The first image I’m using is of an adorable baby elephant with a birthday cake.  It’s called Baby Elly’s Birthday. All these great stamps sell for under $3.  What a deal!

I wanted to do the card in bright colors and chose this green paper with white polkadots from the “Birthday Blow Out” Paper Pack. This is from a 6×6 paper pad by My Favorite Things.  They have quite a few great paper packs out now besides their solid color cardstock with matching inks.

The Pink Corner Tag was cut from a sheet of Birthday Paper from the 6×6 stack called “Birthday Wishes” and made by DCWV. The twine on the tag was from my stash. I also used my Copic Markers to color the image.  The Happy Birthday and the Wonky Circle Dies are by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The number 1 is made of chipboard. The Flowers and rhinestone were also from stash.

I hope you enjoy the card and please check out the wonderful digi stamps from Sasayaki Glitter.

Challenges Entered:

Journal Cover….

I’m doing a second Bugaboo project for our monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge and this one is WAY out of my comfort zone!  It’s a Coloring Page, which turned into quite a challenge for me.  It can be found here.

I planned to use one of my favorite Copic color combos…black, yellow, and gray, but it turned out that I needed to add another color to the mix.  I chose a pretty turquoise to compliment the other colors. I’ve also used lots of Wink-Of-Stella Clear or Black Glitter Brush Pens on the image, but it’s hard to see in the photo. I’ve added a rhinestone to the center of each of the flowers and I think it really makes them pop.

I was so pleased with how this came out that I added the date to the front and now plan to use it as a Journal Cover.

CHALLENGES I ENTERED:

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.

Hawaiian Mermaid….

This darling image is called the “Hawaiian Mermaid” and is by digital artist Francesca Lopez. This image is the latest for her Progressional Challenge at her CUTE AS A BUTTON” site.

I had originally wanted to make her a “puzzle” card, but I cut the image out and couldn’t do that. I went ahead and built the card inside of the “Shaker Dome” anyway, which you can get from our own Samantha, AKA MsWipz, on Ebay. The Domes are a joy to work with.

The image is colored with my Copic Markers and surrounded by an assortment of Dies.  I used the following: Happy Birthday and Music Notes are by Die-namics from My Favorite Things; the Magical Castle and Seaweed are by Gina Marie Dies. I also used a Circle Nestability Die by Spellbinders.

I topped the card with a layer of white paper, which I embossed with an Embossing Folder called “Tide.” This folder was made by Memory Maker’s “Life Time” Crafts. I finished it off by wrapping the Dome with Twine, which was also made by Memory Makers. I don’t know the name of the “Sand-looking” paper, but the blue background paper is by Sandy Lion. The Gold Paper is from My Favorite Things. I also used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.
