My July DT Day at Meljen's Designs!

Good morning everyone :)  Me again.. three posts in one day! Sheesh!! LOL  So, for my last post today I am sharing Meljen's Designs. Today is my DT Day at Meljen's and for this one I created a card for this little boy:

He has an inoperable brain tumor and all he would like for his birthday coming up next week is a box of birthday cards. I hope his wish comes true! I hope he ends up with a bunch of amazing cards!!! You can read the store here at ABC News. I hope you all will join in as well!

Here is the card I created using Dirt Storm Monster Truck.

I colored this image with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I used a banner die cut for the Birthday Boy at the top. The letters are old Doodlebug rubons. The mud splats are Sizzix die cuts. I used chalk around the edges of the splats to add a bit of detail and dimension. I decoupaged the image.. I popped the card and the tires and the flag on the back. I hope he likes it!


Tuesday Throwdown Guest Design

Good morning again! Today is Tuesday and that means another post for my Guest Design spot at Tuesday Throwdown. They are on Challenge #205 today and the theme is Handmade Flowers. I decided to take this opportunity to do another Christmas card! Here is what I created:

For this card I used Xmas Hamster from Wee Stamps. I colored him up with my Copic Markers and I have lost the list of Markers that I used! I hate when I do that!. I decoupaged him a bit. I used several different dies. I used the stamp cut die around the image, the edge on the side. And the edge on the inside. I inked the edge around the hamster. I also cut the different flowers and layered and rolled them. I inked the edges with white and added the gems to the centers. I also added the random dew drops around the image. The Merry Christmas is Paper Smooches.Oh! And I added some of my snow marker to his outfit! Love that stuff :)


Whiff Of Joy New Nautical Release

Good morning everyone! Not much going on here! I've been going to work, coming home and going back to work LOL I did go to the beach on a rainy weekend day with Bailey and we practiced with the volleyball a bit. She will try out for the Junior Jacket Volleyball team on August 3rd. Then, they start back to school on August 4th! Next weekend she will be having a sleep over for her birthday with one of her friends.

Today I'm sharing one of the new Nautical images that is part of the new digital image release from Whiff of Joy. Here is my first make for this release.

The image I used is Henry With Seagull. For this one I used a side step design. I cut the side step with the Cameo. I also cut the anchor on the inside, the waves, the shells, the cliffs and the lighthouse. I am REALLY loving the Silhouette Cameo! I added some Copic Opaque white on the tips of the waves and to highlight around the lighthouse. I used chalk to create the clouds and sky behind Henry and on the inside. I also used chalk to highlight the anchor and the shells. I paper pieced the lighthouse. I added the yellow dew drops on the lighthouse and the blue ones on the side. The sentiment is stickers from my stash. I layered Henry to give some dimension. I added netting behind all of the layers under Henry as well. Henry was colored with my Copic Markers.

Copic Markers:
  • Blue: B24, B29, B39
  • Pylon Wood: E33, E35, E37
  • Henry: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7

Bookworm - Use A Book As Inspiration at Meljen's Designs

Good morning everyone and Happy Thursday!!  Today is a new challenge over at Meljen's Designs. We are on Challenge #219 and the challenge is Bookwork (use a book as inspiration). My inspiration came from "The Hobbit".  Here is my creation for this challenge:

I used papers that came from Club Scrap. I really love their papers.. the quality is just not matched! And they are very unique! The die cut swirls are from Memory Box. I added gems on the swirl and pearls on the strip on the side. I added the little bouquet of flowers and leaves on the top corner. I though the white ribbon would be a nice added touch as well. I decoupaged this image and I had a blast doing it. The sentiment is a quote from "The Hobbit". I colored this image with my Copic markers as well. This image by the way LOL Is Traveling Gnome from Meljen's Designs. The swirls on the inside are from the cutout parts of the edge on the front.

Tuesday Throwdown in July - Week 3

Good morning everyone! This is my 2nd post for today. This is the Tuesday Throwdown post. This is my third week as a Guest Designer for them. It has been a thrill. I have a couple of more weeks to go. I really appreciate the opportunity!  This week the theme for Challenge #204 is Take Us On Vacation:

For this challenge I used Beach Baby from The Stamping Boutique.I colored her with my Copic markers. I did a bit of decoupage to her. I popped her and the sandcastle. I used chalk on the sky. I created the sentiment myself and added the gems. I also added the banners and the little bucket, ball and sandals. I also added gems to the inside to finish it off. I thought it worked alright for a nice Summery Birthday!

It's Getting HOT! at The East Wind!

Good morning everyone! Today is the 15th and that means a new challenge at The East Wind. Our theme this time is It's Getting HOT! Now, you might think summer, sun, beach when you think hot, but I took it in another twist LOL  Hot as in Sexy Hot... with the lovely Lucy Loo Sexy Girl with Her Own Style. I love her!! I did my usual color at least three images LOL but I didn't decoupage her, instead I made three separate cards. Here they are:

They are the same design, just a different sentiment on each one. The sentiments are from Create With TLC. I knew right away I wanted to use purple with her and that I wanted there to be purple in her hair LOL So I went with the Black and purple theme. The skull corner was cut out with my Cameo and I covered the top with the purple glitter. I added the gems and pearls on the side of her.. black pearls and purple gems. I added the twine between Lucy Loo and the sentiment and I added the three black buttons on the side. The edge has a strip of black lace that hangs off the edge. I thought it gave it a nice touch. I colored these images with my Copic markers.

  • Purple in Hair, Outfit and Eyes: V12, V15, V17
  • Black in Outfit, Hair and Shoes: C3, C5, C7, C9
