Easter Parade….

This image was my choice to use in the March Progressive Challenge by Bloobel Digi Stamps.  I though she was cute, different and it would be a good challenge for me to make her look “Eastery.” (Is that a word?) She’s called “Easter Parade Bunneh.”

I used my Copic Markers, Prisma Pencils, and a Jelly Roll White Pen to color the image. I really like to mix these mediums, as the pencils make it easier to get in those small places.  That’s really important when you don’t see well.

I had a new paper stack that I picked up on sale at a Beal’s Outlet and the papers were all Spring and Easter oriented — just perfect for this card! The stack is called “Umbrella” and is made by American Crafts.  I had some 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 pre-made card bases from Hobby Lobby that I decided to use. I thought it would be fun to work with a bigger size card than what I normally use.

I used one of those dollar punches from Michaels to make the flowers for her hat and the one she’s holding. I added a few rhinestones from my stash to make the flowers “pop” a little.

The Music Notes Die is by Memory Box and the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle is a Die-namic by My Favorite Things.  When I finished the card I thought it still needed something, so I decided to add the Sequins. These are also by MFT, and I thought they were the perfect addition to put the finishing touch on this card.

Why don’t you get your Bloobel image before the month is up and come play along with us?

“Happy Halloween….”

Hi everyone.  This was my last Halloween Card for the year… unless I come across another that I realize that I didn’t post.  LOL.

The image is from the INFAMOUS “KennyK” and is called “Trixxie Treat.” I colored her with my Prisma Pencils and outlined the image with a Frost Blue #BOO Copic Marker.  The sequins are all from My Favorite Things and they come in assorted color sets.  A few boxes of these have pretty much covered all the various colors that I’ll probably need.

The chipboard and twine was in my stash and probably came from Michaels or Joanns. The Black Cardstock is called Licorice and also comes from My Favorite Things. The Printed paper came from a Halloween Paper Stack called “Trick Or Treat” by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby.  I bought it last year after Halloween for 90% off. You can’t beat that!

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.

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.
