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.

“I Deserve A Treat!….”

Hello again. My Design Team card for this month’s “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” is by the Queen of Quirky herself, Lisa Bloobel of Bloobel Stamps. To say that her work tickles my funny bone is a vast understatement, especially this image of “Witch Trick.”

My image is colored with Copic Markers, which I mainly tried to stay within the Warm Gray color tones. I don’t usually use them but I like how they look, so I’m sure that I’ll be using them a more in the future.

I made my card base from Black Licorice paper by My Favorite Things, but the other papers I used were from my scraps box.

I’ve used an assortment of “Google-Eyes” to dot the background and I also put a small one on her eye.  I’m not sure where I bought these, but you can find them in just about any craft store in the aisle where they have supplies for making dolls. I also pulled out an old photo sticker for a sentiment that must be at least 20 years old. I had to doctor the glue a little on that, but I thought it went perfect with the Witch.

Oops…I should also mention that I used a Nestability Rectangle Die to cut out the image area.

All in all, I was very pleased with how the card came out. Please join us and add your projects to the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge Blog. And most of all…Have Fun!

I’m Coming To Get You…

This wonderful Free “Mummy” Digital image is the latest Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image by the wonderful digital artist…Janice Cullen Cullyer of Scrapper’s Delights. Most of you probably know the drill by now, but if not here’s what you do:

The image is Free to first time users or for those who requested the last Progressive Image and used it to enter the Blog Challenge.  If you requested the image and didn’t get to use it, you can get this one for $1 at Janice’s store.  It’s as simple as that.

I chose to make an Easel Card this time. I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils. She is “popped” with a very thick layer of foam tape under the head and then I used thinner pops for the body.  It gives a nice 3-D effect.

The wonderful background paper is from a Graphic 45 Paper Stack called “Happy Halloween.”  I’ve added a few extra tree branches that were cut from a Tim Holtz Alterations Die called “On The Edge.” The Clothes Pins were bought at a post Halloween sale last year at Michaels’ Craft Store and are by Recollections.  The Puffy Halloween Sticker was from my stash and is made by Momenta.

Don’t miss out on the fun and a chance to win some free images.

Back To School….

It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over and the kids are going back to school soon.  This cute card will be sent to a child just starting Kindergarten.  It will also be entered into the ADFD Challenge Blog, which asked for a card made with “School Paper.”

The Apple image is by A Day For Daisies, which just happens to be one of my favorite digital stores. This cute image can be found there, but please check out her other lovely images of women, children, mermaids, animals, fantasy themes, etc. The images just seem to “flow” from her pen.

The patterned paper is called “School Days” and is an “Oldie” by Provo Craft and dated 1995. The blue and white paper on the corners was cut from a sheet of matching paper called “School Days Quilt.” The ruler ribbon is from JoAnns and the sticker was in my stash.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is typed on my computer and cut with a Spellbinders Die, and I also used a Gina Marie Die called “Stitched Hexagon.” The apple is fussy-cut and the worm and leaves are 3-D.  I used foam dots for this.
