Fairy-Tale Princess

Card #1
Card #2
Card #3

Here I am back again with another fabulous Fabrikfantasy Digi. This time I worked with royalty! This Fair-Tale Princess was a delight to color using my Copic Markers.

For card #1, I cut out the colored princess and adhered her to two pieces of card stock on a white base card. I embellished the card with two Adhesive Glitter Shapes from Recollections.

Cards #2 and #3 were made with a scan of the colored image placed in the Craft Artist 2 program. The princess was merged with parts from the Craft Scapes Stately Home digikit, for both cards.

Come again, I'm sure to have fun with another Fabrikafantasy image!

Beach Nanny 3D

The Beach Nanny image was created by Mo's Digital Pencil. This PNG image was placed in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged with the scenic background, which came with the Beach Baby image. I added a sailboat to the scene.

The scene was printed and colored using Prismacolor Pencils and a Prismacolor Blender marker. I scanned the colored scene back to the computer. Using the Craft Artist 2 edited image, I printed it twice and cut away the scene to have just the nanny and a bit of sand and towel .

I cut around the nanny, sand and towel for one print layer ad then cut mostly around the nanny for the top layer. I layered the pieces together with soft pads creating a 3D image.

This was such a fun card to work on.

Beach Baby 3D

The Beach Baby image was created by Mo's Digital Pencil. This PNG image was placed in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged with the scenic background, which came with the Beach Baby image. I added a sailboat and pail with a shovel to the scene.

The scene was printed and colored using Prismacolor Pencils and a Prismacolor Blender marker. I scanned the colored scene back to the computer. Using the Craft Artist 2 edited image, I printed it twice and cut away the scene to have just the baby and a bit of sand and towel .

Have I told you lately how much I am lovin Fabrikafantasy Digis? Well if I did, I am telling you again! This Pirate Parrot #3  little girl is the cutest ever!

For card #1 I colored this cutie with Copic Markers and and cut her out. I adhered her to 2 pieces of card stock on a base card. The text was cut on the Cricut die cutting machine.

Cards #2 and #3 were made with a scan of the colored image placed in the Craft Artist 2 program. For card #2 she was merged with a background of a diner in St. Augustine, Florida, created by my husband Sandy Brooke. I added the record player from a Craft Artist 2 digikit. The little girl in card #3, was also merged with a background frame, which I had found online, using Craft Artist 2.

Floral Trio for Mom's Day

Floral Trio Frame 1

Bugaboo
Bugaboo is the current sponsor of the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise. Since we are going with a seasonal theme, I chose Floral Trio Frame 1 for my Design Team inspirational card.

The lovely floral squares were colored using Derwent Inktense pencils and water. The sheet of 3 colored floral squares were put in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged with pieces from digikits including background color, ribbon, lace and text.

I hope my floral card has inspired you to participate in the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise, where the season is the theme.

Craft Store Find and Tattoo Cutie

Digistamps4joy shop
It's always fun to shop at the craft store with my friend. Although the store is around the corner and I go there often, when I am with Vickie we usually find something new and unusual to use in creating our cards. Well this last visit we found Recollections Decorate It Die Cut sheets. They come in paper pads of a couple of sizes and I bought the small 5"x7.5". The pad of 24 sheets has several cut designs in pink and green papers.
When I got home and wanted to use  sheet, I found they were slightly larger than my 5"x6.5" base card. I trimmed the edges on 3 sides and cut a strip near the middle of the die cut sheet. Then I covered the front of the base card with black card stock and adhered the 2 pieces of pink die cut to the black meeting near the middle. A pretty ribbon conceals the match up.

I decided this would be a lovely background for Digistamps4joy's new release Tattoo Cutie by Jen. Lovely Tattoo Cutie was colored using Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and a Prismacolor Blender Marker. I cut her out and adhered her to the background of the card using soft pad to give her a 3D look.

Would it be wonderful for this new digital to win in the challenge at Digistamps4joy? She very cute!

Keep Calm and Add More Lipstick! Freebie Friday Plus Challenge Team Card

Crafty Honey Ruler
Scrapper's Delights

You must have noticed that there are two cards at the top of this blog post. The first is the card for Freebie Friday April 15th and the second for the challenge blog - Mid Inspiration April 16th. I've left the Freebie Friday Team and have joined the challenge team! We'll talk about the Freebie Friday card first.

Ah it's Freebie Friday once again at Scrapper's Delights and these lipstick images plus lips is available for  group members of Scrapper's Delights on Facebook!

I chose to use 2 of the 3 images, which comes as  set for my Design Team inspirational card. They were colored using Prismacolor Pencils and a red metallic Gelly Roll Pen was used for the detail. The colored images were merged with an embossed background color, image and text. It was printed and a second set of lipstick images were printed and cut out and adhered to the top with soft pads to form a 3D image.


Get your Freebie by going to the group and asking for it. Follow up by showing off your finished project in the Facebook Group challenge for Scrapper's Delights. I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful creations!

My challenge team Mid Inspirational card uses three images designed by Janice for Scrapper's Delights. These are Crafty Honey Ruler, Room 2 and Craft Table. Each image was colored using Prismacolor Pencils. After coloring Room 2, I cut out the windows and taped a print of cloud paper behind it. All 3 colored images were placed in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged. Texted was added and the scene was printed. A second Honey figure was printed, cut and adhered to the scene with soft pads, forming a 3D image.

I hope you are inspired to try your luck in the challenge at Scrapper's Delights.
