Forever Friends

Have you ever felt like a good book could be your best friend.  That would be my daughter.  She loves her books and she loves to read.  Seems like she always has her nose stuck in a book.  This cute little Bugaboo Image Kidz 3 Sitter reminds me of when she was little.  She had so many books that the stack was almost bigger than she was.

I created this card for our Crafty Creations Challenges, #348, theme as always Anything Goes.



I actually used 2 Bugaboo images for this card.  Not only did I use Kidz 3 Sitter, but also Book Stack.

After printing the image, I colored her with various Copic Markers.





Skin E11, 21, 00 & 000
Cheeks E95 & 93
Hair:  Y11, 21, 26, 28, YR21 & E55
Background:  E43, 42, 41, 40 & W0
Reds:  R59, 39, 29, 17 & 14
Grays:  N8, 6, 4, 2, 1 & 0
Blues:  B97, 95, 93 & 91 
Greens:  YG67, 63, G94 & 21
Yellows:  YR24, 21, Y17 and a touch of E35

When the coloring was finished I began the layering.  I cut the image out using a Mama Elephant die from the All Prettied Up collection.  The tag was a pre-cut tag, I just colored it up with the red markers, cut the sentiment (unknown) with black and dark brown CS, which I off-set, then adhered them to the tag.  Attached the image with foam tape to the pattern piece of paper (unknown), then layered it to a solid dark red CS and glued that to my card base.  Added a few buttons and this card was finished.

Back to School

I have a card to share with you today.  In honor of our new school year right around the corner here in the states, I wanted to create a school themed card.

For the Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge our Sponsor for the month of August is Cute as A Button.  For my creation, I have created this cute little card using Hipster.  And as always our theme is Anything Goes with a Handmade bow.




After I colored her with various Copic Markers and cut her out, I layered up some different card stocks from my stash.  I also used the stamp set "Dear Old Golden Rule Days" from Stampin-Up.



Then I Created a bow using the amazing Craft-Dee BowZ tool, have you tried this awesome tool yet?  If not, you really should.  It is so easy and makes a perfect bow every time.




I hope you enjoy my little Back to School card and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

Team Birthday Card #6

I have another Team Birthday card to share with you all.  This card was created for Debbie who absolutely loves dogs.

The stamps I have used is from My Favorite Things, You Make My Tail Wag and BB Lucky Dog.


I stamped the dog in the dog house, masked him off, stamped the poodle, masked it, stamped the bulldog, masked him stamped the dog house and the rest of the images.

With various Copic markers I colored the sky and ground first, then I proceeded with coloring the dogs, etc.
I mounted it onto a card base with foam tape and finished it off with a few sequins.


I really love how it turned out and so did Debbie. It makes me happy when I make someone else happy.

I hope you enjoy this little card.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

Kathy

Team Birthday Card #5

A Birthday Card for Sheree

Hello there, I have a card to share with you today.  This one is for one of the team co-workers in our department where I work.  As mentioned in previous posts, I create birthday cards for our team members.  This is the fifth card so far this year and I have three more to go.

For this card I decided to use a CC Designs stamp, Little Pixie Popsicle.


This card is a Surprise Pop Up card.  When you pull up on the ribbon, there is a hidden message underneath.  It is adhered to a top fold card base.  On the inside there is an additional image that reads "From all of us".


The patterned paper, button and ribbon are from my stash.


She is colored with Copic markers, which just happens to be my favorite coloring medium.  I added some wink of stella glitter brush pen to her Popsicle and covered it with some glossy accents.  I simply love the way she turned out.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like my little creation.

Hugs,
Kathy
