Put On Your Red, White & Blue….

If it’s July in America then it’s time to wear your Red, White and Blue and help celebrate the 4th of July!

For this month’s Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I’ve chosen to use this digi by Scrapper’s Delight called “Lady Constance.”  (It was also the pick for their Progressive Challenge on their FB page.)

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and outlined some part of it with a white Prisma Pencil so it would stand out agains the dark background.  The patterned paper is a scrap of double-sided paper called “Liberty Fireworks” by Bo Bunny, that I thought went great with the 4th of July theme.  The stickers are by “Life’s Little Occasions” and originally came from Joanns.

Thanks you for stopping by.

Think Pink….

It’s time again for our monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge at Crafting Circle.  This time I thought I’d try something other than my usual card. I have a very dear friend who fought the “Pink Battle” and won and since she’s also an avid reader, up popped the idea of making her a “Bookmark.”

The image I used is “Pink Ribbon Gals – Vivian.” I used a heavy white cardstock from Hobby Lobby and a scrap of pink paper that was sitting on my desk.  I used my Crop-A-Dile Corner Rounder and a generic Hole Punch.  The white and pink ribbon is from my stash but originally both are from Joanns.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers. The Dress has been colored twice and popped with Foam Dots and the Ruffled was done three times. I plan to buy some small magnets to put inside, which I’ll then cover with a pattern paper. The Bookmark will open and close over the page to keep your spot.

The sentiment comes with the stamp set.

Bunny Eggs…?

Here it is the beginning of the month and time for the new Crafty Awesomeness Challenge.  This month’s sponsor is “Cute As A Button,” which features the wonderful digital Stamps of the owner – Francesca Lopez.

With Easter just around the corner, I chose the image called “Bunny Egg,” #IMG00186.  I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and used the Die-namics Wonky Ovals to cute out the image.  I believe the Fence is a “Do Hicky” Die Cut by Magnolia. The corner Dies are by Memory Box and called the “Snowflake Corner.” The cute papers are from an old Heidi Grace paper Stack called “Summer Showers.” I’m down to my last few pieces of paper and I’ve loved everyone of them!

I wanted to do something a little different, so my Easel Card turned into a sort of “Diorama.”  LOL.  The Grass, Bunnies and Eggs were in my stash and I believe they originally came from Joanns. The small paper eggs were cut with an old punch that I’ve had for years.

Come on over and join the fun! You could be a Winner!

CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:

Winter Bliss…!?

This digi by Bugaboo is called “Stella Calendar Months – November.” As you know if you’ve been following me for any length of time, that Stella is my favorite Bugaboo character. I see myself in her!

This is my first project for the new “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” over at Craftingcircle. It is a new monthly prize challenge for Bugaboo stamps projects and starts on the 15th of every month. Come over and check it out and join us.  It will be lots of fun and we’ll have some great prizes.

I wanted to use a paper that looked “cold” and I think this one was perfect. I printed the image several times and used the different layers to make a 3-D Card.  I find the fussy-cutting very hard, but I’m gonna keep practicing until it gets easier.  If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to share them with me.

I colored her with Copic Markers and used a jar of Rowney White Watercolor Paint for the snow.  I also rubbed a little on the bottom part of the page to make the area look more like a snow bank. I got the affect of snow flakes by dipping the end of paint brush into the white paint and dabbing it on the card and the banner. Can’t you just see that snow piling up?

The paper is by Bo Bunny and called the “Altitude Collection.” It was from Hobby Lobby.   I’ve used Judi-Kins Diamond Glaze on her glasses and a cotton ball for her hand muff and the edge of her coat. Her earmuffs are a pink pom-pom cut in half.  I’m not sure where the one on her hat came from, but the Glass Icicles are from Joanns.

The sentiment is computer generated and the top border and Letter Banners are dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for stopping by.

Santa’s Helper….

This is my card for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge.” We were suppose to use a Digital Stamp and a Gina Marie Die.

The image I chose was one by Mo Manning called “Toyshop Helper” and is available at Mo’s Digital Pencil. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and a touch of white pen.

The red and green Cardstock is from my scrap pile, but the pattern paper is from a 6×6 DCWV stack called “The Christmas Basics,” which I bought last year.

The Twine is from Hobby Lobby and the Red Ribbon is from JoAnns. I dotted the background with Liquid Pearls and Ranger Stardust Stickles.

The Gina Marie Die is from the Stitched Hexagon Die Set. Make sure to check out her great selection and great prices.
