Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

Posted on

When I was a kid I loved that old song by Burt Bacharach….Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head. It was just such a catchy tune. And every time I color this image by Torico of Birdie Brown it makes me think of that song.

I have been having a lot of fun using the Honeycomb stamp from my most recent Paper Smooches stamp purchase. The stamp set is called Geo-Graphic and it includes a polka dot stamp, this honeycomb and a chevron stamp.

The main image is a digital stamp from Birdie Brown. The characters that Torico (Birdie Brown’s creator) draws are always so adorable. You should consider visiting her blog to see more of what she has to offer and you can join in her monthly challenges by using her latest free image.

Paper Smooches Freebie

I used a Paper Smooches free-bee (sorry I couldn’t resist the urge to spell it that way) and also the honeycomb stamp from the Geo-Graphic Set by Paper Smooches to create my card.

The sentiment stamp is a dollar bin stamp, from Michaels. And I doodled in the stitches and highlights with a white gel pen.

This little bee is so cute; he really does make me happy!

21st Birthday Card

Posted on

I created this card for my niece Kelly’s 21st birthday. Kelly is fun loving, blonde and likes to get all dolled up. So I thought that this image would be perfect.

21st Birthday Card

 

I added the lines on the girl’s legs to create the look of Fishnet stockings and I added some Glossy Accents to the Martini glass to give the image more depth. And finally I added the shadow by using watercolor paints.

Baby’s First Christmas

I made this card for my newest grandnephew, Dominic. He is only a few months old so I doubt that he will appreciate it but, I’m sure his mom and dad will. We will meeting him for the first time at Christmas when we travel to North Georgia for the holidays.

We go to Dalton every year to see my husbands family but, we don’t always have time to stop and see my sister and her family along the way. This year however, we are scheduling an extra day into the trip so that we can get together with my sister and all of my nieces, nephews and grand nephews. We are planning on visiting the Snow Mountain attraction at Stone Mountain. Hopefully it will be lots of fun for the little ones! I let you all know how it turns out.

I used an adorable digital image from Pink Cat Studios called, Billy Rides a Train for this card.  The sentiment on the flag was added before I printed out the image. I used Copic Markers to color the image and the floor and I used a pencil eraser to stamp the polka dots on the wall.

Cup Of Joy

CUP OF JOY

I used a free image from The Alley Way Stamps. It is digital image called Steamin’ Hot.

It has been a long time since my last post. Right after Thanksgiving weekend my husband Jeff and I had to prepare to go the Mohawk Flooring Convention in Orlando, FL. We spent 4 fun filled days seeing the latest introductions, attending sales workshops and of course eating all of the delicious goodies that the Gaylord Hotel provided for the convention.

Now that things have settled back into a routine for me I have been in my craft room again making cards. I am used this great free image from the Alley Way Stamps called Steamin Hot and my own typed sentiment to make this Christmas card. In order to play along with a Lawnscaping Challenge: Color Inspiration, I used turquoise and red for my card.

I am also going to enter this card into Aud Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes and a DT Call.  Play along for a chance to win 3 of Birdie Brown’s digital images!

Birdie Brown Freebie: For You

 

This is a Birdie Brown November Freebie stamp called, For You. I love the way the bright blue of my Copic Marker pops against the watercolor blue I used on the gentlemen’s coat! There is  glitter on the snowman’s tie and buttons but, it is hard to see in the photo. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Holiday Cheer clear stamp set.

I am entering this into Birdie’s monthly challenge: November Freebie Challenge  Head over to her blog and grab the freebie before it’s gone. And join in on the challenge for a chance to win more of her great digital images!

Eat Pie, Not I

I’ve put together a quick but cute card for Thanksgiving. This card doesn’t require a lot of layers or fancy techniques but, it is still really fun and finished looking.

 

I used a free digital image of a cartoon turkey to create this card. And the background paper for the card was created with my Waltzing Mouse Midnight Feast stamp set. In order to color the Turkey I used a combination of Prisma colored pencils and Copic markers.

I will be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Thanksgiving/Thank You challenge.

Rosh Hashana Cards and Spoiler Alert

If your name is Dave and you are my brother-in-law you may want to look away now. Or you may ruin the surprise that is due to arrive at your house in a few days. Or you can do like I used to do at Christmas when I was a kid and peek anyway!

My niece and nephews on my husband’s side are Jewish.  This means I get to be creative for certain holidays during the year. I use my winter stamps to create Hanukkah cards instead of Christmas cards and I send Spring themed cards in place of the Easter cards that my other  nieces and nephews get.  But I recently made cards for one holiday that belongs to Eli, Addie and Sam alone; Rosh Hashana!

This first card is for Addie and it was made possible by the generosity of an artist named DragonCid who posts on Deviantart.com. I asked permission to use this cute apple and honey image and DragonCid said yes!

I read that it is part of the Jewish tradition to eat apples and honey on the New Year in hopes of a sweet year. So I took that theme and I ran with it. I just love the cute little face on this apple. That is sweet enough for me.

Next up is Eli who loves all kinds of vehicles. Remember these cute characters from  Richard Scarry’s, Busytown?

Don’t ask my why the worm, who has no arms, is the driver in this image. Maybe the cat has a suspended license or something.

 Here is a view from the top. You can see that I used larger dimensional stickers in the middle and thinner ones on the sides to create a rounded look for the apple. I also used Glossy Effects to create the windshield.

Sam was a bit trickier to create a card for, since he is a 5th grader. I wanted to create something youthful but, not babyish.  Sweet but not sickeningly so because, let’s face it, according to the Jewish tradition he will be a man in 3 short years! I think it would be awesome if Sam could grow a cool handlebar mustache 3 years from now but, I think the man thing is more metaphorical or something.

 Hopefully I found that balance for Sam.

And last but, not least, I made a card for Jill and Dave. The card is a flip card and they are fun and easy to make if you have the die cut like I do. However, they are kind of tricky to photograph so I hope you get the idea.

L’shanah Tovah! Which from what I can gather on the internet, means Happy New Year At least I hope it does or I will look like a schmuck! (I know what that word means)

Your Youth?

Posted on

I know you have all been waiting with baited breath (or maybe you were just barely breathing) to see the card I created for my friend Kim’s 50th birthday. So here it is….

This is another free image from the Graphics fairy. I loved the expression on this woman’s face. She just looked, to me, like she was asking a question. That’s when this sentiment popped into my mind.  I stamped the background with the number 50 and some stars (from Gina K’s Candles on Your Cake) and then I added some turquoise gems because the card still looked kind of plain at that point.

I know I’m tooting my own horn here (but let’s face it only about 5 people actually read my blog posts) but, I think this is the best skin coloring I have done to date. I used Skin White from my Copic Ciao markers set and I just added more of the same color for the shading. My favorite part of the whole card though is the pearl earring I added at the last minute. It’s the little things that sometimes make me happiest.

I will give Kim her card on Saturday night when we go to Evelyn’s house for a Stampin’ Up Make and Take event.

Oh, Tannenbaum!

I used a freebie stamp from the Alley Way Stamps to create a card for their Be Inspired #7 challenge. I love their super cute stamp sets! But, I am broke as a joke and I can’t afford to order a stamp set. So….I am hoping to win one!

I colored the trees with my Prisma Color pencils, cut them out and then glued them onto a 1″ paper circle. I added a paper rosette to hide the gaps between the tree points. The sentiment frame is from Stampin’ Up and the sentiment is another freebie from The Alley Way Stamps.  There is still plenty of time to play along if you’d like.

I am entering my card at The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired # 7 Come and Play challenge.

Wish me luck!
