          The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" using a sheet of white card stock as the base.
               I kept the design of this card pretty simple, just sticking to one layer.
I printed the image on the card stock and using a circle die cut from Darice, I cut an opening in the card base.
Next, I colored in the adorable "Kawaii Kitty Ice Cream" image from Bugaboo Stamps.
I colored it in using my alcohol markers and here's a rundown of the colors I used.
                -Fur- CG22, CG24, CG35- Conda brand markers from Hobby Lobby
                   -Birthday Hat & Ice Cream- RV000, RV52, RV55, G40, G43


     I used my CG02 & Colorless Blender Copic markers to add some ground for the image to sit on.
Next, I used a birthday stamp set from Inkadinkado to stamp a birthday cake through the window I cut out earlier.
                 I colored it in using my E18, E29, E79, RV63, RV66, R27, B12 Copic markers.
Then using a fine tip black marker I drew a line to create a table for the cake and colored it in using my C02 marker.

                        Lastly, I stamped some sprinkles on the inside and outside of the card.
And for the sentiment I used a stamp set from the Two Paper Divas and it states, "May your Birthday be filled with sweet Surprises".

                                                              And voila! Card complete!!


                                                  I hope you enjoyed this card for today!

Make sure to head over to the Glitter N Sparkle blog to play along and for a list of this week's sponsors!
The image I used is "Frankie's Bride"  from our sponsor, Digital Delights.
I used the colors from the image to choose the papers and color scheme for this card.
                                                     Here's the pic for you to check out:


                  The card measures 5" x 7 1/2" using a sheet of grey card stock as he card base.
The first card layer is a sheet of purple card stock that I trimmed to 4 7/8" x 7 1/4" and using my tape runner I adhered it to the card base.
Next, I layered two striped papers from The Paper Studio, "Ninth Street" paper pad, to create a second card layer measuring 4 1/2" x 7".
My third and final card layer uses a patterned paper from the Teresa Collins "World Traveler"paper pad.measuring 4" x 6". 

I used my C02 marker to add shading between the layers and my white gel pen to add stitching lines similar to the ones on the image.
With my card base complete, it was time to work on the image.

      I colored this undead beauty using my alcohol markers and here's a rundown of the colorsI used.
                                                           -Skin- G40, G43, G46, RV52

Next, I added some white stitches to her dress and a few highlights with my white gel pen.
                         I cut the image out and adhered her to the card base using pop dots.

To embellish the card, I used flowers from Prima and a flourish strip punch to create this         arrangement, drawing inspiration from the color scheme.
                               I added a brad and rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.
                           As a final finishing touch, Wink of Stella to add sparkle to her dress.

Expanding my Crafty Horizons: Handmade Bluebird of Happiness Sock Plushie!

Hey everyone, happy Thursday to you all! I hope your having an awesome day! On the blog today, I have an adorable sock plushie that I made. Now I have never made a plushie before but leave it to YouTube to inspire me to make one. Luckily I had the supplies needed for this project in my craft room. I used a fluffy sock, some felt, needle and thread, a marker and pastels to create my bluebird of happiness plush. This was a really fun project to make and I hope to make a few more to share with you.
                                                  Here are the pics for you to check out:





I used fiberfill to stuff my plushie, E6000 glue for the eyes and a black marker to add eyelashes.

And ta-da! Sock Plushie complete!


I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
I hope I have inspired you to "expand your crafty horizons" and try a new project or technique for yourself.
You might be surprised by what you create! 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! :)

"Learn something New" Back to School Card!

Hey everyone! I hope  your day is off to a great start! For today's post, I have a card I created for the latest challenge over at the Glitter N Sparkle blog! The theme for this week's challenge is "Back To School" and we have some great prizes for you to win. So make sure to swing by the Glitter N Sparkle blog for a list of sponsors.
The card I'm showcasing today features a beautiful image from Crafts & Me "Book Worm Fairy".
                                                     Here's the pic for you to check out:



The card measures 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" and uses a sheet of pink card stock as the base.
For the card layer, I cut a sheet of  black card stock to 5 3/4" x 5 3/4"and adhered it to the card.
Next I printed out the image and colored her in using my alcohol markers.
Here's the list of colors I used:
-Skin- E00, E11, E13, RV52
-Clothes & Wings- RV000, RV52, RV55, RV63, C02, C04, 100
-Accessories- G43, G94, E99, E29, B00, B12, C01, C03, Colorless Blender



 Once I had the image colored in, I decided to create a subtle background.
I thought that rows of books would work but I wanted to keep the look soft with the focus beig o the main image.
I penciled in the shelves and books using a ruler to keep the lines straight.
Next I used my E00, Y00, RV000, G40 Copic markers to add a little color and then softened the look with my Colorless Blender.

I trimmed down the image panel to 5 1/2" x 5 /2" and adhered it to the card base.
I added a few butterflies that I punched out of white card stock and colored them in using the same color scheme as the main image.
To finish it off, I adhered a few pink sequins and hand wrote the "Today learn something new" sentiment using my 100 Copic marker.
And voila! Card complete!


I hope you enjoyed this card for today!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! )

Sending Hugs & Sweeet Dreams Card feat. LBBS Stamps!!

Hey everyone, happy Friday to you all! I hope your day is off to a great start! Today on the blog, I have a card I created for the LBBS new stamp release for this month. The image I used is entitled "Sleepy Panda," and is such an adorable image to add to your LBBS collection! I created a background scene for this panda to set the tone of the card. I then drew and inked in the details and challenged myself to stick to a few Copic colors to bring this scene to life.
                                                
                                                         Here's a pic for you to check out:


The card measures 6" x 6 1/4," and uses a sheet of white card stock as the base.
First, I worked on the image; drawing in the background and coloring it in.

Here's a rundown of the colors I used:

 -Panda- PrismaColor markers in Warm Grey, Warm Black
-Robe, Mask, Bow- RV000, RV52, RV55, B00, B12
-Wall & Floor- Y00, Y15, RV52, RV55, B12, E99, E29
-Rug, Nightstand, Lamp, Glass- RV000, RV52, RV55,Y00, Y13, Y15, B00, B12

 

            With the image and background colored in, I trimmed the image panel to 5" x 5 1/8".
Next, I added some sparkle with my Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush pen. I then used an Avery Elle stamp set for the sentiment, "Sending Hugs". Using the colors from the image, I chose blue and pink card stocks as my card layers. I mounted the image first on the pink, leaving an 1/4" border all around, and then on the blue card stock, leaving a 1/4" border all around. Finally, I mounted the completed panel on the card base.

                                                            And ta-da! Card complete!


                                                   I hope you all enjoyed this card for today!
                                          Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend! :)
