Get Well…

This is my card for the Bugaboo Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at the Crafting Circle.con for August. This cute Digi Stamp is called “Clyde – Get Well,” and it’s one of the newer images available at Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  Make sure to check them out for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie image.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils for highlighting. To add a little sparkle, I’ve dotted the background with “Star Dust” Stickles by Ranger. The Buttons are made from a Die-namic Die by My Favorite Things.  The patterned paper was a remnant from my stash.  I used a Corner Rounder on the corners.

Good luck with your entry.

Penguin Christmas….

I’m very pleased with how this card came out, especially since I wasn’t happy with my choice of colors. I love it when a card has such an unexpected “Happy Ending.”

The image is called “Penguin Willie Snow Day” and is by digital artist Janice Cullen Collyer and is on sale right now.  She has a really cute choice of Penguin images that are perfect for winter or Christmas Cards. You can find her images at the Scrapper’s Delight Digi Store.

The pattern paper was a scrap from a Disney Paper Pack from last year called “Disney All Seasons Mega Pad.” It covers all the holidays through-out the year and uses some very interesting color combos.

The dies I used are Wonky Ovals, Icicles, and Merry Christmas, which are all Die-namics by My Favorite Things. I covered the Icicle border with Zig “Wink of Stella” Clear Brush Glitter Pen, and I also dabbed some Ranger “Stardust Stickles” on the snowflakes.  I dotted the image and card with white watercolor paint to make it look like falling snow.

Santa’s Helper….

This is my card for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge.” We were suppose to use a Digital Stamp and a Gina Marie Die.

The image I chose was one by Mo Manning called “Toyshop Helper” and is available at Mo’s Digital Pencil. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and a touch of white pen.

The red and green Cardstock is from my scrap pile, but the pattern paper is from a 6×6 DCWV stack called “The Christmas Basics,” which I bought last year.

The Twine is from Hobby Lobby and the Red Ribbon is from JoAnns. I dotted the background with Liquid Pearls and Ranger Stardust Stickles.

The Gina Marie Die is from the Stitched Hexagon Die Set. Make sure to check out her great selection and great prices.

Ladies and Gentlemen….

It’s Friday and we have a new Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image for you from Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights. This is also from her Circus set. The image is a choice of “Word Art” to be used with her Circus Images.

I chose “Ladies And Gentlemen” to go with my Ringmaster image.  My image is colored with Copic Markers and placed against a background made from an assortment of papers and images cut from the “Le Cirque” Paper Stack by Graphic 45.

I have highlighted her hat band and some of her clothes with Ranger “Star Dust” Stickles, and I also used Zig’s “Wink of Stella” Clear Glitter Pen and Silver Glitter Pen.

The Summer Sea….

This is an adorable Mermaid digital stamp done by artist Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights and recently offered free in conjunction with Markers, Papers and Digis on their Facebook site.

By now you should all know how I feel about Mermaids…I love them, and this one is no exception.  It was really fun to try to do something different with her.

I went through my old stack of 8-1/2 x 11 papers and found this underwater scene called Fish W/Whales by Masterpiece Studios. I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect paper!

The image is colored with Copic Markers and highlighted with a White Prisma Pencil and a White Gelly Roll Pen. The inside of the clam shell is brushed with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter, and I also used Ranger’s “Star Dust” Stickles on her clothes and tail.

The “Happy Birthday” die is a Die-namic by MFT and the Branch and Seahorse dies are by Memory Box.
