Put On Your Red, White & Blue….

If it’s July in America then it’s time to wear your Red, White and Blue and help celebrate the 4th of July!

For this month’s Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I’ve chosen to use this digi by Scrapper’s Delight called “Lady Constance.”  (It was also the pick for their Progressive Challenge on their FB page.)

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and outlined some part of it with a white Prisma Pencil so it would stand out agains the dark background.  The patterned paper is a scrap of double-sided paper called “Liberty Fireworks” by Bo Bunny, that I thought went great with the 4th of July theme.  The stickers are by “Life’s Little Occasions” and originally came from Joanns.

Thanks you for stopping by.

Graduation 2017….

It’s the 15th of the month and time for our May Bugaboo Crafty Challenge.  I picked this adorable “Ava Grad Diploma” image from the Bugaboo Digital Stamp Store.  It’s a most appropriate image for this time of the year, plus I wanted to make a card for a family member who is graduating from Kindergarten this year.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a White Gell Pen. I really dug through my old papers and came up with one that is from one of the very first Paper Books that I bought made by Paper Pizazz.  It has to be close to 30 years old! And speaking of “very old,” you can add these “School Days” Stickers by Francis Myer, Inc., to the list.

The Dies I used are the Bottle Cap Letters and Numbers by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.

I hope you can join us this month and share your creation with us….You could be the winner!  Also remember that the Bugaboo Store has been revamped recently and if you haven’t been there lately, you might have to set up a new sigh in.

Have a great month!

Ever Feel Like This?

Here’s my card for The “June Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.

I’m sure that we’ve all had days when we can identify with this “cutting-edge” image by digital artist Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Bang Your Head Slowly” and can be found here at Zibbet.

I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and used Prisma Colored Pencils for the eyes. The black and red colored cardstock is by Recollections.  The checked paper is from the “Mother Goose” paper stack by Graphic 45, and the other patterned paper is called “Black Swirl Roses” by Recollections.

I also used a large Friskars Flower Punch and a small one made by E.K. Success. The small letters are a Die by Die-Namics from MFT. The large Alphabet Stickers are by Making Memories and must be at least 10 years old.  The black and white stickers are “Thickers” by A.C. The rhinestones were in my stash.

Happy 4th….

I liked this image by artist KennyK so much that I just had to make another card.  The image is called “Tori Famous.”  The background paper is a single sheet by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  The letters and numbers are cut with dies from Die-Namics.  The one corner die is from “My Little Paper World,” and the stickers were in my stash. I also used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add some sparkle.
