Bluebell

Hi there!! I made this card for a recent Facebook challenge at Aurora Wings, and haven’t had time to blog it until now!! I really don’t know what people are talking about when they refer to the lazy days of summer, because it seems as if I’m running non stop!! I used on of the adorable sprite images that Mitzi is famous for: Bluebell Sprite.  I colored the little sweetie with my SN markers, then shaded the background with my Prismacolor pencils.  I’ve had this giant doily (or a good part of it) kicking around for quite a long time, and figured that this was just the card to use (a piece of) it on.  I cut the fence on my Cricut, then inked the edges with some Distress Inks. I’ve really been trying to use up stash that’s been neglected and/or forgotten, and as I went through things, I found these pretty pop up butterfly stickers.  I added a few silver adhesive dots and mounted everything on silver mirri card :)

Snow Family

Blue Snow Family

Snow FamilyHello, here is my card for the latest challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  We are having Christmas as our theme, as we do once a month, as a way of trying to help you get the jump on making Christmas cards. We have the generous PaperNest Dolls as our sponsor this time :)

I have used the adorable Snow Family image, kindly supplied to me by the sponsor for my DT project.  I colored the family up with my Prismacolors, then added some Wink of Stella to the bodies, and some glitter to the background.  I cut the image out with a nesting die, matting it with a bigger version of the same die.  I had a scrap of the blue snowflake paper in my stash, that coordinated perfectly.  I used a corner punch to put the snowflakes in the corners, then used the punch again on the dark blue base paper, and sprinkled the punch-outs around the card.  Some fluffy and sparkly yarn, and a few bows finish this card off :)

Dance!I finally had a good excuse to buy and color this gorgeous Flamenco image, from Sheepski Designs!  A friend ordered a birthday card for her sister, who has just completed lessons, and whose favorite color is blue.  I colored the image with Prismacolors, giving the dress a gradient of blue and teal. I die cut her out, and framed her with a pretty, lacy frame.  For the background, I did an emboss resist, using a music score stamp and blue and teal Distress Inks. I messed around with embellishments for quite awhile, before settling on a simple sentiment on a tag, a sheer ribbon and bow over a blue strip of paper, and some rhinestones to coordinate with the dress.
