Billy

Hello again!

How cute is this Billy Goat from All Dressed Up Stamps?  I have to admit…I was stressed out when I was given this goat to color as I don’t normally color animals…lol!  It took me a little while to decide what I was going to do with him.

Once I had a design in mind, it all started to come together.  I brought the image into Microsoft Publisher using the postcard template.  It automatically prints four to a page, which was perfect as I needed multiple copies to make the card work.

I started with the background, coloring the grass and the sky the way I wanted it.  The second layer was to focus on the fence detail and the pink flowers.  The third layer was just the goat.  I used foam tape between each layer to create a 3D effect.

Sweet on you

Good morning everyone!

I am back today to share with you two of the sweetest little bears from Conie Fong called Bella & Benji.  How completely adorable!  It’s as if they are falling in love while sharing ice cream.

Sweet on you1

I printed this adorable digital image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored the little cuties with the following Copic markers.

Sweeto on you3

 

I cut out the white scalloped frame 3 times and glued them all together to make it look like chipboard.  I used the inside of the scalloped frame (the waste piece) to create the blue mat, trimming it down a little on all four sides and then tracing it on the blue paper before cutting it out.  Once I was done adhering it all together, I popped the entire piece up with foam tape before adhering it to the green paper.

Sweet on you3

The die is from Mama Elephant and the green paper is from My Favorite Things.

I created the sentiments in Microsoft Word, adding green cardstock behind the wording to make them stand out.  I then used 3D foam tape to adhere it to the card.  As always…I added a little bling…lol

As always there are many more cuties to be found in the shop here.

Thank you so much for stopping by…hope to see you soon!

Little Day Dreamer

Hello again!

I am back today with my DT creation for All Dressed Up Stamps using one of the little cuties from 3 Little Summer Girls.  Such a precious image to work with.

I knew right away that this little sweetie needed to be colored in pink!!  (My favorite color)

Only in my dreams

Pinka:  RV02/10/00/000
Hat:  E42/41/40
Flower:  RV02/10/00/000/W1/CB/White Gel Pen for design
Background:  W0/00/CB

Only in my dreams2

I started with a 5.5″ x 5.5″ card base, and added lots of layers from there.  As the paper was 6×6 I had to find a way to keep the gorgeous flowers on the sides.  To do this I carefully cut out two of the “boards” and then carefully taped the two pieces back together with the hope that you couldn’t tell.  I think I succeeded…lol!  I added Stardust Stickles to the edges of the pink roses and to the petals of the flower on her hat…she just had to have a little sparkle!

Only in my dreams3

I started with two sizes of ovals and added a layer of vellum over the darker layer to mute the dark green color just a bit.  I fussy cut the cutie out and popped her up with foam tape.  I also popped up some of the layers with foam tape.

Only in my dreams4

The dies are from My Favorite Things and La-La Land Crafts.  I used a Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (Stub/Scallop) to create the decorative corners.

The paper is from Lemon Craft -House of Roses 6×6 paper pad…absolutely gorgeous paper!  The ribbon is Vintage Chalk White Seam Binding Ribbon that I got wet, scrunched it up into a tight ball, and dried before making a bow with it.  I also added a few pearls in various sizes to finish the card off.

Make Today Amazing

Hello everyone!

I am back today with a DT project for Conie Fong.  I am working with the super sweet image called Little Blossom.  She is so adorable!

My new goal is to get myself out of my comfort zone and try new things.  With this being said, I have made my very first easel card!  I hope you like it as much as I do.

Make Today Amazing

I printed this adorable image on X-Press It Blending Card and then colored her with the following Copic Markers.

Make Today Amazing1

Once I was done with the coloring, I cut out the image on my Scan N’ Cut before attaching her to the front of the card.

Make Today Amazing2

The dies are from My Favorite Things, and Memory Box.  The paper is from ScrapBerry’s.

I cut out the Memory Box (circle with flowers) 3 times cutting off the flowers on the top two layers.  I then glued all of them together with the two plain circles on the top so it would appear to have a little depth.  The background was created with the mini cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink.

I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word, added a mat behind with red cardstock.  I then used 3D foam tape to adhere it to the card.  As always…I added a little bling…lol

As always there are many more cuties to be found in the shop here.

Thank you so much for stopping by…hope to see you soon!

I embossed one of the layers with a swiss dot embossing folder as the white seemed a little boring as just plain white.  The layers were popped up with foam tape, and of course I couldn’t resist adding a little pink bling to my project

We’re Mermaid for Each Other

Hello everyone!

Seriously…how fun would it be to be a mermaid?  This adorable little mermaid couple is from Tiddly Inks Stamps.  For my guest design project this month, I will be joining the whole team in creating with these little sweeties.

Mermaid Couple

I printed the image at a height of 3.25″ on X-Press It Blending card and colored the little cuties with the following Copic markers.

Mermaid Couple1

I started with a card base is 5.5″ with the layers each being 1/8″ smaller.  The background is colored with watercolor paints on watercolor paper.  Once dry, I used the largest scalloped edge frame and the second smallest single stitch line square frame from My Favorite Things to create the texture for the background.

Mermaid Couple2

I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word (Sunny Day Font) and then die cut it with a sentiment strip die from My Favorite Things.  The seaweed dies are from Memory Box.  I cut them out of X-Press It Blending card and colored them with the Copic markers listed above.

This adorable image is free during the this month’s challenge.  You can find the image here.

You can find lots more gorgeous images here.

Until next time!
