Congratulations Professor Owl!

Another card has been created!! 

I love the way this one came out! For this card I used another MelJen's Image called Professor Owl. Isn't he so cute?! I paired him up with Paper from my new Glitz Laced with Grace 8x8 pack. I colored the image using my Copics and stamped the sentiment "congratulations" in London Fog and wrote over it using my Star Dust pen. I also outlined Professor Owl's cap with the Star Dust pen and added three star brads.

Congrats Fuzzer!

For your viewing pleasure I introduce Fuzzer the Monster

Isn't he cute?? So for this card I used another MelJen's image. I tried two techniques here that I am not very confident in.. one is cutting my image out and the other is paper piercing (my 2nd attempt at both! lol!) My cutting definitely needs work, but I do like how he just pops off the card.

Stars and Stripes

Hello Everyone! Today I have a couple posts to put up and I hope I have enough time to do them. :) 
For this card I used MelJen's Army Bear image and a sentiment I bought from Hobby Lobby. When I saw this sentiment "liberty and sparklers for all!" by Lizzie Anne I had to get it! So stinkin' cute! I colored my army bear with Copics and used my Marvey markers to color my stamp before I pressed it. Then I blinged it up with my Brand New(!!!) Stickles glitter in Yellow. I used my Martha Stewart Stars punch for the red and yellow stars and my background paper I bought from Beverly's in Citrus Heights California last summer when I was visiting my sister. I've been saving it for a special creation..I hope I did it justice as it is beautiful paper! I tried a new technique this time. I've seen "paper piercing" but have never tried it. I think it is something I will definitely need to work on! LOL! I was a little nervous piercing holes into my card considering once it's done, there is no turning back, but I think it all came out okay!  For the inside I "created" my background paper by using my Trio Stars stamp. I stamped it using London Fog ink, stamping it off on scrap paper and then stamping it on my background paper.

Happy Birthday "Down on the farm"!

So!! This is my 2nd post for today..possibly not my last. I am so happy I get to be creative and craft today, although, with all the bickering between my girls I am not sure how much longer it will last...anywho! Here is a sweet and fun birthday card. My image and sentiment are from Paper and Such and they are super sweet little chicks, aren't they?! I used paper from the DCWV Celebration paper pack and my circle nestability die cuts and cuttlebug to trim the image and the sentiment. I colored the chicks using my copics and stamped my "prairie grass" stamp along the bottom in 3 different shades of green. I sponged the sentiment and heat embossed it for a little extra pizzazz and added my three colorful brads to finish it off.

Happy Birthday To You!

I loved this image when I found it over at The Paper Shelter! It's so cute..and EXACTLY how I LOVE my sundae's to look! lol! So for this one, I printed him on Neenah Solar White paper and colored him with my Prisma Color Pencils. I haven't used them very much and would LOVE to take a class if they offered them nearby. Until then it's youtube tutorials. :) I used paper drom DCWV Celebration paper pack and my sentiments are from Amy R's Best Birthday sentiment set. I used my stickles on the cherries for some bling and the red striped paper had glitter too..nothing says celebration like sparkle! I finished the inside to match as well.

Happy Graduation to all the 2012 Seniors!!
I made this card for a close friend of mine who's daughter graduated on Sunday. She loved the card and thought it was amazing. I think she is amazing! Graduated as Valedictorian with Honors.. we are all so proud of her! 

So here's my creation.. I used another Digi from Sassy Cheryl, her digi's are awesome! I created and used my own word art sentiment. :) Colored her with Copics and used paper from my brand new Madeline Collection Paper Stack. The flowers and brads are by The Paper Studio.  

 Her favorite color is purple, as is mine.. the girl has good taste. lol!! So I made her two pieces of jewelry. The bracelet is a keepsake of her graduation and the necklace is an all-occasion piece. I think they both came out did she. :D
