Rockin the Sketch

Birdie Brown Freebie

 

I almost never participate in sketch challenges because, I get all caught up in trying to copy the sketch but, not “COPY” the sketch. Do you know what I mean? The idea is to follow along with the original but, make it your own. And the whole time I’m thinking “this doesn’t look like the original”! Very stressful. LOL

But this time the prize was way too tempting for me to sit this one out. I can’t tell you what the prize is but, you can see for yourself by hopping along the blogging trail. Cards Blog Challenge

For my version of the sketch I used the sentiment portion of Birdie Brown’s monthly freebie, an older wood mount musical score stamp and some Spellbinder Nestabilities Dies. I printed the sentiment out and colored the words in green before blotting the banner in some Shock Pink Copic refill ink. As you can see the pink bleed onto the green and gave me an unintentional two toned effect, that I wound up really liking. The two toned ink gave me the inspiration to create the green star insert for the pink circle. As a final touch I added Glossy Accents and some Fairy Dust glitter to the sentiment and star and a few pink gems too.

I will be entering my card into the Cards Blog Challenge to win the a fore mentioned prize pack. You can join in too up until June 17th!

Ahoy, There!

I wanted to share with you a card I made using the latest digital release by Birdie Brown. This image can be purchased on Torico’s Etsy site. Nautical images are everywhere this Spring and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these adorable images.

I added the wooden ship deck and the back of the boat by hand doodling them in. And just for fun I used an anchor for another new set called Nautical Icon to create a tattoo on the captains left arm.

The Purrfect Birthday Card

Posted on

I am so excited about the latest card that I made. It features the cat for the Storybook Friends digital stamp from Stampin’ Up. The reason I am so happy with this card is because the little ball of yarn I set out to create worked out just like I hoped it would!

Storybook Friends Cat

 

I wanted something without a lot of visual clutter but, that had something special to draw one’s attention. In some ways too, I guess I really love cards that have a tactile element to them.  My favorite books to buy for babies are the kind that have the different rub and feel pages like fuzzy ducks and scratchy sand and such. So that is why I added the little ball of yarn.

After several failed attempts (the glue was causing the ink of the stamp to run) I realized that the trick was to glue the yarn to a blank paper circle and then adhere that over the stamped version of the yarn ball.

I can’t wait to send this card to my niece Brianna for her birthday this summer. She really is perfect!

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.

Don’t Worry, Bee Happy

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.

I will be entering this card into Young Crafters Unite: Happy  Holiday Challenge #16
