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.
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:
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.

BLOGS I’VE ENTERED:
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.
…formerly known as “Prince.” This card was made from a wonderful image by Bloobel Digital Stamps. I colored him with Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils. The papers are made by DCWV and the sequins were from a dollar store. I used some purple glitter for his coat. The letters and numbers were made from a dies by Die-Namics.
