Happy 6th Birthday Princess!

I made this adorable 6th Birthday Card for a special little girl in my life. It reminded me so much of her with those big BROWN eyes and her hair pulled back. LOL. She’s precious.

The digital image is by Sandra Caldwell and from her “Baby Cakes” Etsy Shop.  Check her out…she has some really cute, cute images for all occasions. This one is called “Maria Carmen Party Hat” and is #1388.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and used Pattern Papers from a 6×6 paper pack by Crate Paper called “Party Day.” I used a Stitched Oval Die by Gina Marie.  Make sure to check her out too, as I think she has the best prices around on dies and all-around supplies. New items are added often.

I also used a Balloon Die by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things, which I cute twice and popped. The small sticker cupcake was in my stash as were the Rhinestones.


Baby Birthday….

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.

Journal Cover….

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.


Turkey Time…!

This is another card I made using this great image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps called “Ruby Calendar Month – Thanksgiving.”  It’s another one of my Thanksgiving cards for this year.

This is also my #2 Sketch Card for MsWipz’s monthly “Just For Fun” Challenge that you can find here. I’ve done several cards with this Bugaboo image and find that it works great for any big Holiday.

I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and dotted areas with Ranger Stardust Stickles. I’ve also used Diamond Glaze by Judi Kins on the Glasses and on the Pie Plate. I used small Rhinestones from my stash for her Earrings and her Ring.

The Leaf is a punch, but it didn’t show a company name. The Knife and Fork are from a Die-cut set by Paper Smooches. (There is also a spoon included.) The Twine was in my stash.

The Papers are scraps from other cards I made this year.

Thanks for looking, Dee

Here is my card made from Sketch #1 of the Monthly Crafting Circle “Just for Fun Blog.”  It’s fun to follow the sketches and whatever else they “THROW” at us…like their way out there extra credits!

And speaking of those extra credits, my card also incorporates some of them from this month such as: using Vellum, Fabric, and a Hand-colored image.

I used a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 white pre-made card base and envelope set from JoAnn Craft Essentials. The Pattern Paper is from a new BoBunny 6 x 6 Paper Stack from Hobby Lobby called “Altitude.”

The digital image is a Mo Manning one called “Chill,” which I’ve colored with my Copic Markers. The image is cut with a rectangle Spellbinders “Nestability Die” and backed with papers from my scraps box. The layers were then put on part of a Gauze Bandage to add to the snowy look.

The Snow Flakes are cut from a Die Set by “Die-namics” from MY Favorite Things and were cut out of a heavy vellum that I bought one time at “Tuesday Morning” and never used. It’s got some great “bright” colors in the package that I’ll be sure to use on Christmas Flowers.

I have dotted the centers of the Snowflakes and parts of the background with “Rhinestones” by Gemstones from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for looking, Dee
