Ellen Hutson’s June Pin Sight Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Today I’ve made a card for Ellen Hutson’s Pin Sight Challenge.  This is a super fun challenge that offers a great prize!

Here’s the inspiration:

Pinsight

 

I began by stamping Wish Big by Julie Ebersole in Hero Arts Shadow Ink then colored them with Copic Markers.  I added some highlights in the balloons with my favorite white Signo Uniball then splattered with gold and black.  I added the card panel crooked to give a little birthday whimsy.

Ellen & Hero Arts Challenge

Happy Saturday!  You know I love the weekend because it means it’s time to create.  Today I used my Kuretake watercolors on the new stamp set by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen.  Ellen is holding a “Mix it up” challenge combining Essentials products and Hero Arts.  Today, I used the Hero Arts background stamp “Capture Number Background”.

Simon Says Stamp January Kit; Card 4

For this card I used Retro Sketches design 146.  I created a frame using My Favorite Things square Dies and stamped the sentiment using “Birthday Buddies” from Paper Smooches.  I embossed the background using “Tiny Triangles” from Hero Arts and stamped the sentiment with Navy Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  The button is also MFT die tied with Close To My Heart Waxy Thread.

Happy Birthday

October Simon Says Stamp Card Kit – Celebrate

Still working on finishing my October Card kit in preparation for Novembers kit soon arriving.  In celebration of my Birthday, I’ve created a Birthday card using a My Favorite Things “Celebrate” die.  I backed it with black card stock so it would stand out in front of the striped paper.  I added some faux stitching and some paper pieced balloons from a dollar stamp set from Michael’s.

Birthday Girl - Mo Manning Digi

 

Don’t you just love Mo Manning’s Digital images?  I sure do.  So whimsical and darling. I colored this digi with Copic Markers and used Doodle Bug paper.  The sketch is from The Fusion Challenge.  Background was created with the Simon Says Stamp Wave Stencil and the sea horse and foliage is from Tim Holtz Dies.  The sea horse and starfish are cut out with “sand” paper from Club Scrap. The sentiment is WPlus 9 “Hand Lettered Hello” heat embossed on a My Favorite Things flag label die.

Miss You

ADFD Birthday Close-up

Good Morning all.  Today I have an adorable A Day For Daisies image colored with my copics. The challenges called for use of Glossy Accents, which I used on her wings.  The paper pack is from Glitz 6 x 6 “Hello Darling”.  I’ve really enjoyed this paper.  I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week, but that challenge has already closed – just my luck. I chose the sentiment from WPlus 9 to support a birthday theme. I also used the MFT Stitched Flag Dies and Spellbinders Rectangle Dies.

OWH Sketch 234

This mornings card is based on the Operation Write Home Card Sketch 234.  I am so happy every Sunday when I get a new sketch to work with for my OWH Cards.  I used Bazzill’s “Red Devil” and Echo Park’s “So Happy”.  Twine is Lawn Fawn and dies are My Favorite Things (banner, circle and square).  Image is Doodle Pantry colored with Copic Markers.  I dusted some chalks over a cloud template to create the sunny day.

Birthday Boy

IMG_20140719_0007

I just bought this Mo Manning digital image and think he is so adorable.  I used the new Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” by Carina Gardner, which is perfect for boys and teen males.  The wonky shaped die is My Favorite Things Blueprint 11.  The sentiment is part of a Paper Smooches “Happy Birthday” stamp, but I only inked it up half way.  I really like to use my supplies in ways they weren’t intended.  It makes me feel like I’m getting my monies worth!  I colored the image with Copics and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Inks.

This challenge for Operation Write Home used the Sketch from My Favorite Things for the requested “Teen Card”.  This was a great sketch to use for a teen girl.  I used Amy Tangerine’s Plus One.  I love this paper pack for teens.  The sentiment and headset is from My Favorite Things “Rock On” stamp set.
