Seas the day

Hello friends!

A couple weeks ago I went to the shores of Lake Superior with my cousin and did this exact same thing…took my shoes off and walked in the water. It felt so good to simply relax and soak in the sounds of the waves.

Today I am sharing this super sweet image called ‘Ship Ahoy‘ from All Dressed Up Stamps. I really love this image!

I printed this adorable image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following markers.

I drew the island with the palm trees in by hand. I just picked a starting point and started sketching them in with the lightest color markers for that area. The dies are from Memory Box and Gummiapan.

Let’s go swimming

Hello everyone!

If you follow my blog you probably have figured out that you rarely see boy theme card amongst my posts…even though I will soon have 5 grandsons! My favorite color is pink, which doesn’t work too well on boy things.

With that being said, I was assigned this cute little boy called ‘Duck Swim‘ to work with for my new release project for All Dressed Up Stamps. While scrolling through Facebook I saw a card designed by the very talented Maartje Kraaijenhagen and thought maybe I could cross my fingers and toes and hope that I could color something similar…lol. I asked her if she would mind if I used her design of course…and this is what I came up with.

I am SO proud of myself that I was able to achieve what I had in mind!!

I printed this adorable little one on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

I thought about adding a sentiment, but couldn’t bring myself to cover anything up!

Just look at that adorable little face! He’s just needs a little friend to go swimming with him…

I printed these sweeties at a height of 1.8″ and colored them with the following markers.

We all have those certain people in our lives that will be a forever friend no matter what. I hold those special loved ones dear to my heart.

I altered the image a little bit so I had room to fit her in the die cut shape and had room to add the sentiment. I also changed the opacity of the image so the lines were lighter.

The dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Cheery Lynn.

You’re the best

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing my DT project for All Dressed Up Stamps. This gorgeous image is called ‘Best Mummy‘.

As we don’t use ‘Mummy’ here in the United States, I removed that portion of the stamp in Photoshop which left me a blank slate to use the image for something different.

I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and colored it with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~

Pinks: PC1009, PC994, PC993, PC929, PC1014, PC938

Greens: PC935, PC908, PC109, PC912, PC913, PC989, PC120, PC1004, PC1089
Background Shading: PC936, PC1088, PC1020, PC1021, PC1008, PC956, PC934, PC1026, PC289

I created the sentiments myself, using Microsoft Word for the printed words, and my Cameo Silhouette for the die cut word. The remaining dies are from Pinkfresh Studios, Magnolia Doo-Hickeys, and La-La Land Crafts.

Make a Wish

Hello friends!

Now how stinkin’ cute is this little cutie pie from All Dressed Up Stamps? This super sweet image is called Heart You.

I love the original version of this image, but I could also envision it as a ‘Wish’ themed card…this is my version of this beautiful image.

I brought the original image into Photoshop, and with the permission from the artist Wendy Burns, I removed parts of the image that I did not want to print. I then printed the adjusted image onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

Yellows: YR23, Y15, Y11
Grass: G43, G40, G20, YG11
White Gel Pen

I created the sentiment frame in Microsoft Publisher. The dies are from Lawn Fawn.
