I seem to need a lot of Get Well cards and this one fit the
bill. I printed the image and colored it with Copics. Added
some layers, including an embossed section. I used a

Obviously I was thinking of a July 4 special card and 
since I have a friend with a July 4 birthday, I figured
this would be perfect for him! I colored my image
using Copic markers and outlined the image in a light
gray. I made my coordinating layers and raised up my
sentiment creating some needed dimension. Easy
peasy and yet looks very rich.

Crafter's Companion Card

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 is a card I made using Spectrum Noir
Coloristra Rubber Stamps-Elements 2 and
Spectrum Noir Metallic Pencils.

The cardstock is actually Black and my 
embossing is Silver. I stamped the images 
using a VersaMark pad and embossed it 
with silver embossing powder. Then I 
chose my SN Metallic pencils to color
the flowers. 

I used a shimmer piece of
coordinating cardstock and created my
layers. I added a piece of silvery ribbon
and bow to complete the card. Very
easy from start to finish.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 346

Challenge 346 - sugar high

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

Here's my card for the challenge.
This card is actually WHITE, but my photo didn't turn out 
quite right but you can still get the idea. I printed the 
teacups on my cardstock and colored them with Copic 
markers. I printed the spoon and cut it out after I colored 
it. I added the spoon to the card using pop dots to 
raise it up for some dimension.

So just get your cards ready and...

Consider "following" my Blog before you leave!

Here's my card for the challenge!
Our sponsor, Fred She Said, has some awesome digitals
so be sure to check out their store! 

To start this card I took a piece of white cardstock and 
embossed it. I cut some notches out at the top, to give
it a fence-like appearance. Then I used a dauber to add
some tan ink to it. I chose a blue, for my sky, and
glued it to my main card. Then I added my fence piece,
raising it up with mounting tape. I printed off multiple
flower pot images and colored them with my Copic
markers. Then I cut them out and raised some of the
flowers for dimension. I attached them to my card.
I made a banner and added a "get well" sentiment to
complete this card.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 344

Challenge 344 - doodles

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

Here's my card for the challenge.
This digital image from STAMPlorations is awesome. I 
love that the edges aren't perfectly straight. More of a 
sketch look. It seemed to be made for watercoloring. 
Ok...I'm a novice when it comes to watercoloring but I am 
hoping with more practice I will get better. On that note, I 
printed my image on watercolor paper and then used
Spectrum Noir Aqua Water-based markers and water 
to create my watercolor effect. I added some Clear Glaze
to the entire image and it looks so cool in person.
After it dried I got my layers all put together and
I added a raised sentiment from STAMPlorations,
edge with a gold leafing pen, and a pretty paper
butterfly that I added some matching ink to.

I have a friend with an upcoming birthday and this 
lovely floral is perfect! I used my Copics to color this 
image. I printed out an extra image to I could color and 
cut out two of the larger flowers to raise up on the main
image to give some dimension to the card. I embossed the 
main blue piece of cardstock and attached my layers. I found 
two gorgeous butterfly embellishments to attach to the 
card. I added some gold sparkle dots, using a sparkle pen, 
to the center of my flowers. 

For the inside I added another cut out flower, raising it
up with pop dots. The sentiment is one I've had forever
but it's always great for my CLOSE friends! LOL!

Consider "following" my Blog before you leave!

Here's my card for the challenge!
Our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps, has some awesome digis
and I can never decide which one to use because they are all
adorable!! Since I am missing my Florida beach I felt I needed
to use this cutie! To begin, I took a piece of white cardstock
and masked an oval. I sponged on some yellow and blue 
to create my ocean horizon. I used a Sweet n Sassy palm 
island stamp, inked in black, and added a couple of hand
drawn birds...yes, I am highly gifted. HAHA! I colored my 
beach babe using Copic markers and cut her out. I attached
her using mounting tape. Naturally, I needed to use my clear
glaze on her glasses for the lens shine. 
I added a sentiment that seemed perfect with my bathing
beauty. Not sure whose sentiment though.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 342

Challenge 342 - doodles

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

Here's my card for the challenge.
I used CraftyGirl's digi, "Silly Dog" and I just love this
crazy pooch! I colored him with my Copic Markers and 
cut him out. Since the challenge was "Doodles" I was at
a blank on what type of doodle would work with him and...
I came up with nothing except it seemed like a perfect 
name for the pup! LOL. I did put two small doodles by
the name on the doggie house. hehe. I used die cuts to
create the landscape, clouds and doghouse.  I put the 
house in an embossing folder to give it a woody look. 
I sponges some brown ink over it and edged the little
name plaque as well. 
I put my card together and took some
FSJ Glaze and added it to "Doodle's" tongue and eyes.
So now you know how I choose to "doodle". lol
This was the kind of card that just makes me smile.
Hope you enjoyed it too!

Consider "following" my Blog before you leave!

Here's my card for the challenge!
Our sponsor, Sparkle N Sprinkle has some awesome digis
and this one was too funny to pass up! I've got just the 
friend to send this one to!! The little piggy was colored using
Copic markers. I used a die cut to have a cute little sentiment
bubble. I took a dark blue piece of cardstock and added a 
piece of pattern paper and two white strips to create my 
base background. I layered up the sentiment and the piggy.
The bubble is raised using pop dots and I used a glaze to 
give the splashing water and shine. 

The little twine bow was added after I tore my corner. UGH!! 
But, there are never any boo boos in stamping, RIGHT??? 
All in all I think my friend will get a kick out of this "sow".
