Ladybug Party Tower Birthday Card

Posted on

Recently I purchased a new digital image from Pink Cat Studio called Ladybug Party Tower. I loved the expression on their little Ladybug faces and I thought they would be even cuter with googly eyes. Everything is cuter with googly eyes!

  These guys remind me of the circus bugs from the movie A Bug’s Life.

This is real 3 ring Flea Circus kind of acrobatics here!

I made two versions of this card last night. One for my father -in-law  who is turning 69 this Saturday and one for  my former father-in-law (and children’s grandfather) who is turning 80 on Friday .  I’m not sure that they are really into ladybugs but let’s face it, they’re guys, the barely look at their birthday cards anyway.

I am entering this card at CAS-ual Fridays for their first birthday challenge, at Lawnscaping for their Clean and Simple challenge and at Simon Says Stamp for their 3rd birthday challenge. Stamping,  Mo

To Gnome You is to Love You!

  I duplicated the baby gnome digital stamp  from Pink Cat Studio for this card. I wanted one gnome to stand out from the rest because the inside sentiment reads, “You’re One of a Kind”. The orange gnome is also the only one covered with Glossy Accents so he is nice and shiny.

This is an older version of the card above. You can tell that I colored this one before I got my Copic Markers! Stamp markers just don’t blend very well.

This is the Lulibell & Friends digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio. I sponged the clouds on with a Stampin’ Up Sponge Dauber and Tempting Turquoise ink. I made the grass by simply cutting little strips on the top of the paper with a pair of scissors. I actually impressed myself with my cloud making abilities. (LOL)

These two are dear friends. And they are friends with deer too! I used the same sponging technique as above to make the clouds and I used Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer to give the whole background a bit of sparkle!

These cards are some of the few cards I have made recently using Prisma Color pencils. I like the translucent quality the pencils gave the colors in this images but. I was painfully reminded that blending the pencils with gamsol and paper stubs really makes my hand cramp up! (Years ago I had surgery on a tendon in my thumb and my right hand is arthritic at times because of it.)

This card is my favorite of the bunch. No matter how much I try, I can’t seem to move away from clean and simple cards. I craft like I live my life; straight forward and without a lot of fluff. However, I do like a little bit of bling now and again so I added some little pearls to every other heart.

Little Brains but Big Hearts

My little nieces and nephews all look forward to the cards I send them on holidays. (Hopefully it is the cards they love and not the crisp $1 bill inside!) And Valentine’s Day is no exception! This year I am making all of their cards with the digital images I bought from Pink Cat Studio a few months back.

Pink Cat has adorable images at a really great price. I got 4 dinos in a value pack for only $8.99. Digital stamping is an affordable way for beginning stampers to get crafting.

I used Pink Cat Studio’s, Cupid Rex stamp, for this card. I colored him with Copic Caio Markers and I used Spellbinders Nestabilities- Label Twelve die, to cut out the image and the pink background paper. I am entering this card at DYSU Challange Blog #58 Love  and also in the Simon Say Stamp Love is in the Air challenge.

Pink Cat Studios’, Rex Ate the Valentines is the digital stamp used for this card. I got the idea for the sentiment from a t-shirt I saw at Rue 21. The inside reads, “But me ate it!”. I used Glossy Accents on a few of the hearts and on his spikes. The bite mark is made with a scalloped circle punch. This card is going into the DYSU Challenge and also in the Simon Says Stamp Love is in the Air Challange!

I love the expression on this Pterodactyl face. (And yes I had to Google how to spell Pterodactyl) He looks like he is really enjoying his job as love delivery dinosaur.

This digital stamp is called Dacty Holding Heart. (Probably Melissa from PCS didn’t want to look up how to spell Pterodactyl!) I layered 5 different Valentine papers to border the bottom of this card and I used Glossy Accents on the heart. I will be entering this last card in the Simon Says Stamp

Gooble Up the Good Times

  Thanksgiving is almost here and I am busy making my cards for my younger nieces and nephews. I am not a fan of turkey day cards for adults (it is all too commercialized nowadays). However, I can’t pass up a good excuse to make cards for the little ones. They love getting something in the mail just for them and I usually slip some stickers or a dollar in the card too!


I scored the background paper of the card on my Martha Stewart Score Board to give it some visual interest. The Pink Cat Studio digital image is Itty Bitty Betty – Turkey Ride and I colored it with Prisma colored pencils and blended them with Gamsol.

Hangin With My Gnomies

I just bought my first digital stamps. After I found Pink Cat Studios cute digis I knew that I had to try out this medium. It is so fun and simple that I am sure I will be purchasing more. (Bad news for my bank account!)

Pink Cat Studios has the cutest digital stamps. These are some more of the gnome family digis. I colored them with prisma colored pencils and blended the colors with gamsol and blending stumps.
