Here is the card I created.

I colored the image with Copics:

Hair: YR24, Y21

Hat: V17, V15, V12

Butterflies YR02, YR61

The card base is made with paper from Prima's Hello Pastel Collection. 

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey with Grape Fusion ink.

Crafty Gals Corner- Snow Much Fun Challenge

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  The challenge is Snow Much Fun.  I know many people are covered in snow, but here in Southern California we have been hit by lots of rain, but our mountains have been blessed with snow.  I love snow as long as I don't have to shovel it or have to try to drive in it.  I guess I am a snow lover from afar.

With our challenge being "Snow Much Fun", I was excited to get to color up with beautiful and cute "Ice Skater" by Twinkle Lane Designs.


I used my Copics to color this image:

Ice: B00, B000, B0000

Skin: E11, E21, E51

Eyes: B93, B91

Outfit: V17, V15, V12

Hair: E49, E44, E43

The background was created with dies from Lawn Fawn and I added Stickles to the mountain tops for the snow.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.  Then join us at Crafty Gals Corner with your own "Snow Much Fun" creation.

Bitten By the Bug 2- Collaboration Challenge

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 and we collaborated with Double Trouble.  It is all about layers for this challenge.  

For Cuddle Up Day, let's think cozy and warm...  Layer Up!  You MUST use at least one die, punch, or machine cut and include at least two or more layers on your project. Bring on your card layering techniques and Layer Up.

I created this free file form Dreaming Tree, for an upcoming class and thought this was a great "layered up" project.  

The layers are are in the flower on the front of the card holder.  It is a total of 7 different layers.  It is such a fun design too.

Here is a close up of the layers.

Thank you for stopping by.   Please leave me a comment.  Then create a project with layers and share it with us here at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Bitten By the Bug 2- Any Holiday

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

Christmas is close and I am excited.  I love the anticipation of the whole season.  I love the lights, the trees and how everyone gets "dressed up" for the occasion.  This month our pastor is teaching on the history and theology behind key Christmas Carols and it has made the seasons so much more special for me.

To celebrate the season, I created this little 5 x 5 shadow box I picked up at Michaels.  I know exactly what I wanted to use it for.

I used a SVG from Design Bundles and cut it out of white and silver vinyl.  It is hard to see, but the word Christmas, down the center is written in silver glitter.  Why silver you ask, because I prefer silver over gold. 

I added some gingham lace around the edges of the frame and used snowflakes to add interest.

The verse is perfect for the season and this is the try reason for Christmas.

Happy Holidays to your family.
