Awesome Autumn


IC603 challenge: Fun with Scrapbook Projects - I found this awesome Card. The banner really pulled me in to the card.

I pulled out my stack of DP trying to use up some scraps and cut them down for the base and for the grass looking hill on my card. Added the banner and put the flowers on the banner rather than on the hill. finished off with the sentiment. The apples were fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals and colored with pencils.

Awesome Autumn

Under the Sea

The WT641 challenge - That's Sea Worthy

Stamped this darling Unity Mermaid and colored her with copics. Die cut the image and layered on dimensionals. The layer that looks like cheese cloth is not cheese cloth. It is a really old paper that does look like cheese cloth. Die cut some twig leaves and tucked behind the image and finished off with some sequins.

Birthday Boot

IC602 challenge - The amazing Washi Arts Blog - oh the inspiration. I found this wonderful Paper. Audrie you are right I want to grab all my patterned papers and play after visiting this site.

I found this DP with a similar pattern in black and white. This boot also had a similar pattern in the boot and I thought it would look great paired with the paper. To get it to pop I put it on a white CS then added texture on the white CS. Finished off with ribbon, gems and sentiment.

This super boot image is a gift from my sweet SCS friend Tonda Baldwin. Thank you so much Tonda for this boot image, I LOVE it! :)

F4A382 challenge - Mail/Male

My brother called me and asked for a motorcycle card for his FIL and gave me only 30 minutes to make a card. Well This one was quick. Stamped the motorcycle image. Ran it through the fire EF. Used red, orange and yellow distress inks to add color to the fire. Put stickles around the flames of the fire.









Shall We Play a Game!!!!

I was the hostess for the WT640 challenge - The challenge was to Doodle It

I love this image. The computer screen that is visible is an open canvas for your card. You can color it or stamp something on it or in my case I doodled in it for today's challenge Doodle It! The image I doodled is from the computer game Portal. My son wanted me to create a card with that image and I thought well why not put it on the computer screen of this image.

Stamped the image and colored with pencils. Drew the Portal image on the computer screen. The metallic piece is from Sabrina. It is a tomato can and I thought it would be great to see with texture. Ran it through with an EF and layered behind the image.
Shall We Play a Game!!!!

 FS540 challenge - The very talented Angie (aka Sunshinesense). I found this wonderful Card.

I love the layout with the sentiment in the center. I used a similar layout and added a paw print gem where she had her heart. I needed to make a few sympathy cards for my friend's small pet shop when they lose a fur baby.

Scrapy Thanks

 IC601 Challenge - We are visiting the amazing Inspiration Genius Board. I love the amazing cards on that board. I found this Card.

I love the use of strips of papers and love finding great ways to use them on a card. Pulling my scrap bin I cut strips of papers in the colors of the rainbow and glued them down on a white CS. Embossed the layer to give it a quilted feel and layered on a black CS layer. Finished off with the word Thanks.

Scrappy Thanks

Enjoy Your Day!

WT639 challenge - Fix if with Duct Tape

This is another fun card I created for my aunt to give to my uncle next year. She wanted a baseball card. Well this image did not have a baseball but I thought this would be fun to add a baseball to the image with a simple punched white circle and I added the stitching.

Stamped the image and colored the entire card with copics including the wall paper and floor.

This guy is relaxing and not wanting to do anything on his honey do list in his favorite chair that he added some tape to it to cover the holes. Giggles!!!!
Enjoy Your Day!

My friend Jan (Precious Kitty) sent me these Sizzix die cuts and I thought they would look great layered.

Hello Gorgeous

WT638 challenge - June's Birthstone

Recently I have been sorting through my stash of stuff and trying to use up stuff I have had for a while. This image was sent to me years ago in a Teapot Tuesday card. I think this may have been the first image I tried coloring with copics or very nearly one of the first. I have had my copics 3 years so if that tells you how long this image has been on my desk. Giggles!!!

Colored the Stamping Bella image with copics. Die cut 2 edge die cust in black. My wonderful MIL picked up this DP. I think she is secretly trying to see if I can use the papers she likes. Cut it down to go with this image and added some Heartfelt Creations flowers with pearls in the centers. Added some liquid pearls to the die cuts and the corners of the image and card and finished off with some layering and the sentiment on the DP.
Hello Gorgeous
