Rock n Roll Card


Dis Digistamps is currently sponsoring the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise and you can win some pretty wonderful digi stamps, if you participate. Since the Design Team had the chance to pick their images from any artist I chose Rock n Roll Rory from Lacy Sunshine for my inspirational card.

I colored this adorable image using the following Copic Markers:

E000, E00, E13, E15, E18
C3, C5, C9
W1, W3, W5
R20, R32, R85
Colorless Blender 0

The colored image was trimmed and adhered to two layers of card stock and glued to a white base card.

I hope you plan to join the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise. I look forward to seeing your work!

Sweet Pea Baby Card

The challenge at Scrapper's Delights is still open for your entry. For my Design Team inspirational card, I chose Sweet Pea. I colored him in Copic Markers, but my two favorite colors are still dry. I am waiting for the refills to arrive. So I decided to try an alternative color to E00 and chose E01. I think Sweet Pea looks great and I've learned to make some new choices in my work. I cut him out leaving a narrow white edge.
I matted the basic white card with card stock. I cut a baby dresser and teddy bear using the Sizzix Thinlits Dies. The dresser is embellished with adhesive pearls. Both were glued to the plaid card stock. I placed soft pads on the back of the image, giving him a 3D illusion when he was popped onto the card.

I'm looking forward to seeing more entries to the challenge at Scrapper's Delights, where anything goes.

Special Freebie Friday!

Here's a special Freebie Friday, it's a pack of wonderful sentiments, which work perfectly with all the new and lovely circus digis at Scrapper's Delights. Life is a Circus was my choice.

I chose Lady with/without Hoop,  Fifi and Petra for this colorful Design Team inspirational card. They were colored using Copic Markers. I printed a background using various elements from the Big Top digikit and the chosen sentiment in Craft Artist 2.

I cut out Petra and Fifi and placed soft pads on their backs. These were adhered to the printed background to give a 3D illusion.

Check out those free sentiments in the Scrapper's Delights Facebook Group. You'll love putting them together with the new fabulous circus digis. You can even try your luck in the Scrapper's Delights

Little Elf Fashionista a New Release!

Here's another special digi, her name is Little Elf Fashionista. She is being released today! It's Fabrika Fantasy's first New Release Day. Little Elf Fashionista is Naughty Cherry Elf's little sister. I chose her for a second Design Team inspirational card. The stamps from Fabrika Fantasy come with a variety of usable pieces including black and white jpg and png and pre-colored jpg and png.

I colored this little cutie and her treasure chest with Copic Markers and assorted pens. I put the colored image in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged it with a background made of various pieces from the Pirates digikit.

The Butterfly Hat Card


A challenge opens today at World Wide Open Design Team and Julia Spiri continue to serve as the sponsor, with her lovely digital images. For my Design Team inspirational card, I chose The Butterfly Hat.

I colored this beautiful creation with Copic Markers and a bit of Micron 01 Fine Line Pen. I cut the image out leaving a narrow white edge. I cut a few tiny butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch. I layered two pieces of card stock onto a black base card and adhered the lovely colorful image on top. I embellished the card with the tiny butterflies.

If you belong to another Design Team, you can share your work with us on the World Wide Open Design Team Challenge, where anything goes.

Disco Card

A new challenge has just begun at Mari Digis. I'm continuing to practice with my Copic Markers and as I do, I am seeing improvement each time. For my Design Team inspirational card, I chose B83 Disco. She was colored using Copic Markers in the following colors:

E000, E00, E13, E15, E18, R20, C5, B000, B00, B02, B05, YG61

I cut around the lovely colored digi leaving a narrow white edge. I picked out suitable card stock to give my card a disco era look. Patterns, shapes and black and white are layered and the cut image was adhered to the top and placed on a blue base card.

I hope my disco card has inspired your participation in our new challenge where anything goes.
