Spooky Time….

Our featured artist for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for September is non other than the very gifted artist Mr. Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Excavation for Skulls” and is available here. Rick has some great images that cover all occasions, but I especially like his “Spooky” ones. This one will give me a start on my Halloween Cards for this year.

The image was colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils and was cut with my “Wonky Ovals” Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Rolled Flower Roses and other flowers are also made from Dies by Die-namics. The Branch Die is a Tim Holtz by Sizzix one.  The “Sequins” are from My Favorite Things and the other Black Decorations are from Hobby Lobby.

Please come and join us and maybe you’ll be this month’s winner.

Just Flying By….

This card was made following a sketch from The Crafting Circle Monthly Blog.  The image used on the card is one issued by Bloobel for their May Progressive Challenge.  The image is called “Fairy Pig.”

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  I used Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Dies and Rectangle Dies.  The Happy Birthday is a new die I just bought by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Type was computer set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Ladies….

This card is for the “Crafty Awesomeness” May Challenge.  The featured artist this month is Digital Artist Rick St. Dennis. I chose this saucy lady called “Morning Goddess Edie.” I loved all the cats gathered around her feet and meowing for their breakfast! How many of you go through the name thing each morning?

I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and dotted the background with a Gray Copic Marker and with White Opal Liquid Pearls. The Paper I used is from a stack called “Animal Prints” by America Crafts.  I had just picked it up on sale at a Beals Outlet and thought it would go perfect with the cats.

I used the Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies by Gina Marie and also the Bottle Cap Letters by Die-Namics by MFT.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you grab an image and play along with us this month.

“Mature” Easter Bunny….

You guys all know how I love these Bugaboo Digi “Older” characters. Well, this one was perfect for a friend of mine who can no longer “Hop” around with the grandkids.  (I also know that feeling!)

This image is called “Stella Tid-Bits – Old Bunnies.” I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers to match the colors in the pattern paper.  The paper is from The Disney “All Seasons Mega Pad,” which has turned out to be my favorite and most versatile paper pad that I’ve ever purchased.

The Die is a Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and another item that is turning out to be a “go-to” favorite of mine called the “Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge.” I’ve made some dots in the background using a Copic Pen and Ranger “White Opal” Liquid Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you grab a Bugaboo Digi and join the monthly Bugaboo Crafty  Challenge sponsored by Bugaboostamps over at Craftingcircle.com.

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!
