Rachel

Meet Rachel. She's a Sugar Nellies digital image I purchased at FunkyKits.co.uk

Rachel has been printed on XpressIt paper and colored with Copic markers. I think her face and clothes turned out pretty good but I still need some practice with hair.

Play Date with Deb 6-12

I recently had another play date with my gal pal Deb and below are the cards we made. The 1st one below is a stamp set from Art Impressions of an English Cottage - L3496. Deb used my stamps to stamp the scenes. Then we each colored them differently using the same color palette. This one is mine.


The card below was stamped using the Stampin' Up! Retired Hostess set Simply Sketched . I stamped in Ranger Archival Black then colored with Copic markers. Using framelits from Stampin' Up! cut the image and then a matte from dsp. Added from ribbon and glittery chipboard.


For the card below, Deb had some dsp and a die cut swirly corner. I stamps more swirls with versa mark and used some embossing powder in purple to match. Stamped the little dragonfly and popped him up with dimensionals. Added some rhinestones. 


We always have great fun on our play dates. Looking forwatd to our next time together.

TCEC1

There's a NEW challenge blog out there! It's called The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog. They are starting off with a Guest Designer Search. For my inspiration I chose the two cards on the right. It's quirky and I think it's FUN. 

  

So, a funny thing happened last night AFTER I created this card. I went back to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog to upload my card and realized I didn't use any die cuts. DUH! It isn't called "THE CUTTING EDGE" for no good reason. Hahaha! So this morning I got up and stamped and die cut these sweet little butterflies from Hero Arts.


 If you decide to play along you have to use the image below as inspiration. And remember to add your die cuts!

CTD296






I'm sooo super duper excited! I am a Guest Designer on Color Throw Down. I just have to say, this is my most favorite challenge to participate in! Colors move me! I don't always get it exactly right but when I do I get pretty pleased with myself. I have to admit though, some of the color combos have just not been my cup of tea and so I sat those challenges out. But this week's colors are FABBY!
So without further adue here is the color combo for this week's Color Throw Down #296.


Don't you agree? FABBY right! Looks just like ice cream to me!

I'd like to Thank the Peeps @ Color Throw Down for this honor!

TPP199


The Paper Players Challenge #199 - For my card I chose the Land of the Free stamp from Stampin' Up! I haven't used it very much since I purchased it. But when I saw the color combo this week I just had to go for it!

I started with Whisper White base. Then I cut stripes from Real Red. I punched the stand for my flag out of Night of Navy with the 1" circle punch and then cut it in half. The pole is from Silver Shimmer Paper and the little stars are from my stash of embellishments.

I went with a patriotic theme for my card. But red, white and blue works for any occassion, any time of the year.

Camera Shutter Card

I was lurking on FB earlier and came across a post by Frenchie of Stamping and Scrapbooking with Frenchie that I fell in love with. Now I won't bother to give you all the dimensions because Frenchie has a video on her blog. So if you just click HERE you can watch her video.

Now without further ado below is my card.

This camera design is not Frenchie's. I designed it myself.



Thanks to Frenchie for the inspiration!

CMC48 Flowers

Hello Again!
Here's a lovely card I made. I started this card at midnight and here it is 1:41 a.m. But my dear friend Monica Reeck invited me to play along with the challenge at Card Maniac this week because she is a guest designer. So Monika, this one's for you!

The theme for the challenge is FLOWERS! So I colored with Copics on this lovely Lily Elf from AuroraWings.com. Mitzi has some really beautiful images and they are digitals you can purchase and color ASAP! I love that. I'm sort of an instant gratification gal.

Any hoo, I sure hope you like my flower entry.

FM138CTD294

I'm so excited! This card won me a guest designer spot at Color Throwdown! Thanks Y'all!


Hello and Happy Sunday to all!
Have you been in a rut when it comes to your cardmaking? No! Well I have. I have been making cards for almost 2 decades now and I find through the years my style has changed multiple times. But, for the most part it's still an image and a sentiment with some pretty dsp and cs with a little embellishment thrown in. That said, I am still; usually behind the trend. Take today's card for instance. I think stapling has been around the bend for quite some time. Given... Well, tough tooties, I used them anyway. May not make me a challenge winner but I think they worked for this one.
So what I say to you is, it doesn't matter. Fad or trend; if you like it use it! I DID!!!
 
My entry for Freshly Made #138 and Color Throw Down #294.

AuroraWings Blue Challenge Entry


The challenge is to use blue and one of Aurora Wings' digital images. I chose big Eye Sweet Pea Elf. I used Copics to color my image. When I was done I rubbed on some Versa Mark ink then sprinkled on some Stampin' Up! Irredescent Embossing Powder and heat set. I love the shimmer! Thanks for looking.

Curtain Call Pajama Party

Curtain Call Pajama Party - I started out with a set of stamps and just rolled with them. I used a punch for the banners and colored my images with markers. I hope Stacey's crew and the Cat's Pajamas Gang like it.

Thanks for looking.

Steam Punk

I was just playing around with an image a friend stamped and sent to me. I love coloring. Have loved it since I was a child. Sometimes I still sit with my crayons, color pencils or markers and just color for hours.
I've never done anything Steam Punk before, so this was a first for me. I really enjoyed the coloring process and then the putting together the elements to make the image into a card. Hope you enjoy it too!

 At first glance it needs a little more contrast to his top hat.

There now, that's better. I also added some Crystal Affects to the watch and his eyes. Just for a little shimmer.

Finished! Father's Day card for my dad who keeps reminding me he will be 86 in August! LOL
Happy Father's Day to my dad. Do you think I can top this for his birthday???

AlwaysPlayingWithPaper5

 
Always Playing With Paper #5 - use the sketch.
I've had this little sea horse from Pink Paislee for quite some time. I just loved him but couldn't figure out how to make him work with anything else. But the embossing folder from SU and some mylar from Karen Burniston along with some glittery cs from DCWV, a piece of irredescent trim and a scrap of dsp and I think this one came together. It's a neat sketch so go give it a whirl.

MoJo 341 - CurtainCallInspirationChallenge

This card was creating for 2 challenges MOJO MONDAY with Verve and Stacey's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Confetti Crush. I used very old stamp from Conners Collections to make the flowers. I stamped them in Versa Mark then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used my Copics in 3 shades each of pink, blue and yellow. The leaves are punched from the Build a Bird punch from Stampin' Up! I colored them with 2 shades of green Copics. The polka dotted velum is from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from Sweet & Sassy Stamps #1074 Easter Lily.

Thanks for Looking.
