"Be Merry" Card feat. The Stamping Boutique!

Hey everyone, happy Sunday to all! I hope your day is off to a relaxing start. For today's post, I have a card I made for the latest challenge over at the Glitter N Sparkle  blog. The theme this week is "Blue & White" so make sure to head over to the blog to play along. We have some great sponsors lined up with some great prizes for you to win. The card I'm sharing today not only features the theme but this adorable "Angel Cat" from Glitterbabe - The Stamping Boutique.
I decided to color this lil kitty as a Siamese using a photo from Google as a reference.
Here are the photos for you to check out:


The card base measures 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" using a sheet of white card as the base.
The light blue card layer measures 5 1/4" x 6 1/4".
I added a patterned paper strip off to the side which measures 2" x 6 1/4".
Next I added a scalloped 1" strip between the two layers.

For the image I used my alcohol markers to color it in.
Here's a quick rundown of the colors I used.
Kitten- Prismacolors in Cream, Warm Grey 30%, Warm Black, E74, R12
Halo-  Cream, Yellow Ochre, E13
Wings- B00


I fussy cut the image out, added fun foam to the back and adhered it to the card base.
I embellished the card using small snowflakes that were punched using my EK Success punch.
Lastly I added my sentiment, sequins and sparkle with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen.

And ta-da! Card complete!


I hope you enjoyed this card for today! 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. :)

Happy Holidays Card feat. Little Blue Button Stamps!!

Hey everyone, happy T.G.I.F to  you all! I hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with your loved ones! I know that today officially marks the "Black Friday" shopping spree, which nowadays doesn't carry the same meaning as before with most stores opening their doors yesterday. So with that said I wanted to share a great "Black Friday" sale going on at the Little Blue Button Stamps shop. If you're a fan of Olga's images and can't seem to get enough, she is having a sale on a few of her images plus we are also gearing up for a "Birthday" themed Blog Hop as well. Here's the link to the LBBS shop so you can check out the sale she has going on plus there is a Discount Code for you to use at checkout: release40. This code is good for 40% off your purchase and is valid today only It's a great time to stock up on Olga's adorable images for your holiday cards and projects, so take advantage of her special offer as a Thank You.

Now I'll move to today's card featuring one of her newest releases, "Spike" 
Here are the pics of the card for you to check out:


The card measures 4 1/2" x 5 7/8" and uses a sheet of white card as the base.

The completed image panel measures 3 1/2" x 4 7/8".

I decided to draw in a scene for this girl and her dog to star in by drawing a store front backdrop and a post office box.
I also drew and cut out a scarf to go around her neck plus a letter addressed to Santa.
I used my alcohol markers to color everything in and here's a rundown of the colors I used.

Girl- E00, E11, E13, E74, E18
Outfit- V20, V25, Warm Grey 30%, Warm Black, Colorless Blender
