Surprise Gifts

I bring to you today this card I created using an image Surprise Gifts from our sponsor Polka Doodles for Challenge #82 over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends challenge blog.

After printing and coloring the image with various Copic markers, I placed the image on a piece of pink 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 square card stock.

I then placed the pink onto a 6 x 6 top fold card base.  I added some Wild Orchard Crafts flowers, a 3D paper butterfly, Nuvo drops and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn.

Head on over to Lil Patch of Crafty Friends and join in on our current challenge #82.  We can't wait to see what you have to share with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope I was able to inspire you today.

And remember to visit our Polka Doodles for some really awesome images.

Under the Sea

Hello there and thanks for joining me today.  I have an ocean themed birthday card to share with you.  The stamp set is from Bugaboo and it's title is Under the Sea Birthday Set.

Bugaboo just happens to be our sponsor over at Crafty Creations Challenges for Challenge #366.

I wanted to create an under water scene so I started with a piece of 6x6 Bristol Smooth CS.  Inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers in order from the bottom up.  Then I used the Ocean Stencil set from Honey Bee Stamps to create the sun rays and and Coral at the bottom of the ocean floor.  The rays were created using a white pigment ink, then I used some of the peacock feathers over the entire piece to blend the white out a little.  Trimmed the 6x6 down to so that there was an 1/8" white border around the ocean piece when placed onto a top fold 6x6 white card base.

I then colored the images with my copic markers in various colors, cut them out and placed them on the ocean piece and stamped a birthday sentiment.

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoyed the card as well.

Again I thank you for stopping by and I really hope you hop on over to the Crafty Creations Challenges and join in the challenge.  Bugaboo has so many darling images to choose from, so please feel free to visit their site.  We look forward in seeing what you have to share with us.

My Heart Belongs to You

Hello and I bring to you today this cute little rubber stamp from La-La Land Crafts.  It is titled My Heart Belongs to You in the Molli collection.

After stamping her onto my Neenah Solar White 80# card stock, I colored her with my Copic markers in various shades of purples, pinks and my usual skin tones.

Then I created one of the best 3 loop bows I've ever created.  Of course it was easy peasy with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool from Craft-Dee BowZ.

You can pick up your own bow tool here.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have enjoyed my card and that I was able to inspire you.  Please remember to go over to the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge and join in on the fun.  We can't wait to see your creations.

Welcome to the World

Today is the first of  May.  Can you believe that.  May brings spring, warmer weather, blooming flowers and new beginnings,

Speaking of New Beginnings, I have chosen this cute little baby boy from Kinda Cute by Patricia that is sound asleep with his bottom up in the air just like so many little babies sleep.

After printing the image I colored it with various copic markers.  Added a few diaper pins with a die from my stash.

I added a handmade bow made with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and a few buttons.

Thanks for stopping by today and please come on over to Craft-Dee BowZ and join us for this month's challenge. We look forward in seeing what you have to share with us.

Fairy Dust

We are holding another awesome challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.  Our Sponsor this month is Peppercus.

I choose this darling little fairy to create a CAS Hello Card.  This fairy is spreading her fairy dust all over the lady bugs.

I printed the image and colored it with my copic markers.

Once I was finished coloring, I choose an oval die to cut the image out, I used some pattern paper I had from my stash along with a few Wild Orchid Craft flowers to create this Clean and Simple card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you will join in over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends for our Challenge #80.  We look forward in seeing what you have created.

With Sympathy

Our sponsor over at Crafty Creations Challenge for Challenge #364 is Fred She Said.  The image I have chosen for my card is  Fall Flowers.  I wanted to create something with flowers for this challenge.  We all hate to need Sympathy cards, but it's always good to have a few on hand and my supply was a little low.

I colored the Black Eyed Susan with various copic markers and colored the sentiment with the same markers creating a gradient effect.

The sentiment die is from My Favorite Things.  The patterned papers are from my stash.

I hope you enjoy this cute little clean and simple card.  Come on over to Crafty Creations Challenges and play along in the challenge.  We look forward in seeing what you have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Serenity Fairy Wishes Photo Album

I needed a birthday gift for a very dear cousin.  So I decided to make a photo album.  It's been awhile since I made one.

I wanted to use Fairies so I went looking for a digital set and found these from Polkadoodles.

The album design is from Laura Dennison and is called the Z Flap.

Here is a close up of the bow.

I colored all of the images with copic markers, inked the edges on the pages with a Distress Oxide Ink.  Embelishments on the front cover are mostly from Recollections.

Here are a few more photos of some of the fairies.  I hope I do not bore you with all the photos.

I hope you hop on over to the Craft-Dee BowZ April Challenge of Anything Goes with a Handmade bow.  We would love to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by today.
