This card was so much fun creating. First I chose my papers
and decided my layout. I used a diecut for my image and 
colored that crazy little squirrel with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I used a dauber with a bit of a light tan ink to smudge around
the white and the squirrel. I edged the white with ink too. 
I took some coordinating papers and used a diecut to create
my leaves. I used a dauber to add some brown ink to the leaves
to tone them down. Then a cute bow of brown and tan twine.
I glued two of the leaves down flat and raised the third
using a bit of mounting tape to complete this fun little card.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 356

Challenge 356 - Anything Goes

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, DRS Designs!
Here's my card for this week's challenge.
This little image just made me smile! I'm always drawn
to frogs because my daughter, Amber, LOVES them. 
She will probably end up getting it! Anyway, I printed 
my image and colored it with Copic markers then cut
him out. Then it was just a matter of choosing papers
and layout. I loved the bug background papers but my
frog got lost in the pattern. So, I die cut a couple of 
ovals and used them as a back drop for the frog. After
doing that I saw a perfect spot for a few "ribbits".  I
added some clear glaze on the water to complete the card.

MHK Designs has such lovely images to work with and 
this little bird just captured my imagination and took me
right back to my Florida winters!! I printed the image
on watercolor cardstock and took great care when I 
watercolored the piece so the ink wouldn't run. The bird 
was colored using my Spectrum Noir markers and I did 
my watercoloring of the sky and water using Spectrum 
Noir Aqua markers. I had printed a starfish and sand 
dollar to color and cut out so I could had some POP 
dimension added to the cute sentiment! 
Create a layer and finish the card. Simple!

Tuesday Throwdown 354

Challenge 352 - Tic Tac Toe

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, MyGrafico!

Here's my card for the challenge.
I really had fun making this card. First of all I flicked a 
toothbrush full of Artist Liquid Masking fluid onto a piece of 
white cardstock. Then I sponges on navy ink and a bit of 
yellow and pink. The yellow and pink don't show very much. 
After the masking fluid dried I rubbed it off, leaving the 
star-like affect. I colored the images using Copic markers
and then cut them out. I added some glaze to the helmet
and space ship windows.  
I made my own sentiments for the front and inside. 
After I cut out my images I raised the little rocket 
and space boy on the front and added a bit of waxy flax for 
the rocket cable. I put my layers together and done!

I stamped my Tim Holtz image and sentiment and 
colored it with Copic markers, adding some glaze for the
eyes. My dots/circles were added by applying ink to 
my dabbers. I mounted the white to a piece of matching
green to finish of the card. It was a very simple card.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 352

Challenge 352 - Tic Tac Toe

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Sparkle N Sprinkle!
Here's my card for the challenge.
My choices for the Tic Tac Toe were Ribbon or Twine, 
Sparkle (glitter/bling), Gold. Gave me the diagonal WIN! 
lol I printed the images, which are lovely, and colored it 
using my Copic markers and cut it out. I ran a piece of 
white cardstock through an embossing folder and 
attached it to a piece of purple and gold cardstock. I 
made some corners our of some printed cardstock and 
raised them up using mounting tape. I added a piece 
of gold ribbon.
 I added my mounted butterfly, after adding a touch of a 
sparkle pen to it. Naturally...some gems for the 
flower centers. :-)

Fabrika Fantasy has some fun designs and coloring
pages! You must check them out! I had fun trying
to do this cute little image justice. I used Copic markers
to color. I added a bit of blue or green glitter pens 
to bring out the color in their eyes. 
I think the background pattern paper was perfect 
for making the image pop! I found some great 
little matching dots for accents and added dotted lines 
around the entire image and mounted it on black. Then it
was just a matter of assembling the card. That's it!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 350

Challenge 350 - Monster Mash

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Sayaki Glitter!

Here's my card for the challenge.
Isn't this little "monster" adorable??? He's just too cute!
I embossed a piece of white cardstock and raised it up 
using mounting tape. Once I printed this cute little guy,
I colored the image using Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.
I love those pens!! It gave my creature a great effect!
All I had to do after that was match up some coordinating
cardstocks and complete my layers. I added a flower
embellishment from Fun Stampers Journey.

Here's my card for the challenge!
I love playing with Sparkle N Sprinkle!  I used the the
image "I love you a latte" and copied it over and over 
to create my background. I colored my coffee with 
Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out. I attached some 
black cardstock and cut it out again, leaving a black edge.  
By adding some Fun Stampers glaze to the "coffee" it 
created a great shine. I took a SN Sparkle pen
and shimmered up the coffee steam for some glitz.
The coffee cut was raised up using pop dots for the dimension 
and then I put my layers together and that was it!

Creative Juices Flowing With Crafter's Companion

I will be trying to give a decent tutorial
and promote the awesome products that
C.C. has to offer. Be sure to check out 
their website! You won't be disappointed!
Here's a card I made for Crafter's Companion.
For this card I used the following goodies from CC. 
(photos don't always show exact color options 
of item used in the making of the project)
This was such a snappy, simple card to make. It's
all just die cutting out the Sassy Shoe, from the 
Signature Collection Glamour. I used pink and 
brown cardstock and glued them randomly on the 
main card front. I added some matching satin ribbon
and used a bit of thread, tying it in the middle. I 
had just the right sentiment to add, raising it up
using mounting tape, in the center of the ribbon.
I added pink and brown gems to each of the 
shoes for the ideal bling to complete my card.
