Under the Sea….

Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge for June is to make a “Shaker Card” and to use our “Gina Marie” Dies.  This was a no brainer for me, as I have plenty of her Beach and Sea oriented dies.

I cut my dies using white paper and colored them using my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Colored Pencils. The plastic Domes are available from here.  The sparkling beads used were a type of “Christmas Ice” bought at Hobby Lobby.  (I’m always picking up things that I think will look cool in a shaker card so I have them when needed.)

The circle background paper was an old scrap, but the wood-pattern paper was from a Glitz 6×6 Paper Pad called “Dapper Dan.”

The Shark Sticker was another dip into sticker notebook that I’ve had for years and years.  I’m determined to make use of as many as I can on my future cards!

I hope you can join us and maybe you’ll be the winner. The challenge runs through the end of June.

Thanks for stopping by.

Life is Like….

It’s time again for our monthly “Bugaboo Challenge” at The Crafting Circle. I chose this image because it’s a little different from what I usually do, which is one of her “funky” older gals or guys.  This little guy is called “Riding A Bike,” and I loved the message that came with him.

He’s colored with my Copic Markers, and I used a Sukura Micron Black Pen to add the road and stones.  I don’t usually color in the complete background, but since it’s something I learned while taking a class at Kit and Clouder, I thought I’d give it a try.  I like how it came out and I’m sure I’ll do it again. Maybe next time it will a different medium.

The Clouds and Sun are Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.  The Peace Charm on the front of his bike is by Darice.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Digi Stamp site. She keeps adding new stamps each week and these and others are often on sale. She also has a great selection of $1 stamps.

Birthday Boy…

We have a family birthday that sometimes falls on Thanksgiving or at the very least the same week.  I tackled this card after finishing the last of my Thanksgiving cards and I just love this cute image.  He’s called “Birthday Cupcake” and is by the very talented digi artist Bloobel.

I had very little time to make this card so it’s very simple.  I colored the image with my Copic Markers and used this great pattern paper from My Favorite Things.  It’s from their “Birthday Blowout” 6×6 Paper Pack.  I love the bright colors and the several different sheets of printed birthday text sheets.

This is also my #1 Card Sketch in MsWipz’s Monthly Challenge.

Happy Thanksgiving….

For the November Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I made this cute Thanksgiving Card using a Bugaboo Digital Stamp called Ruby Calendar Month – Thanksgiving, and I’ve colored her with Copic Markers. I’ve also used a little Diamond Glaze on the pie plate and her glasses.

The Corner Dies are a set from “My Paper World.”  The papers are from a “Cloud 9 Paper Stack” called “Speciality Papers” and the Kraft Base Paper is from MFT.  The Egg Corns are from my yard.

The “Happy Thanksgiving” stamp is from MFT and was part of a Pure Innocence” Stamp Set, but I think it’s been retired.

Who Rules….

“You Rule My HEART!!!!”  That’s what popped into my head as soon as I saw the New Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge digi stamp by Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delight. The image is called “Honey’s Ruler” and can be found here. Janice’s images are always a “delight” to color, but when I saw this image I also remembered that I had this “ruler” ribbon somewhere, and I thought it would work perfect. Now I just had to find it!

The thought of the yellow ribbon also brought to mind one of my favorite color combos of black, white, gray and yellow.  What do you think?  I think it worked great.  I wanted the words to be a little “wonky” looking so although I printed them on the computer, I didn’t make an effort to cut them out evenly.  Along with the image also comes two great digital sayings, one of which I used on the inside of my card.  I think the recipient of the card will be very happy!

I don’t usually use a pre-made card base, but on this one I used a white base made by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. The image is printed on “Copic X-Press It Blending Card” and colored with Copic Markers. The solid cardstock is from Recollections and the patterned paper is named “Black and White Ribbon Stripe” by Canvas Corp. The corners are the stitched die from a set of fantastic corner dies by My Little Paper World. The ribbon, rhinestone, and buttons were in my stash and are probably from Joanns or Michaels.
