Birthday Princesses

I got a request for some princess birthday cards...and I ran off to Mo's Digital Pencil and snagged the Birthday Princess for the cards.   The princesses are twin girls...and we have one in pink and another in purple!
We have flowers and glitter and gems and cupcakes and crowns...what more could a princess ask for?  Images were colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.  The frame is by Memory Box.

General Greeting Card Collection

I have a collection of general greeting cards for you today.  It's so handy to have a variety of cards on hand for whenever you need to grab a quick one. All images on these cards are by Inky Antics.
 All images are colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.
All images are fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.  I just love how this gives a bit of POP to your main images, especially when they are smaller like these are.
 
And dare I say that all of these cards use bits and bobs that I have stashed in on my desk.  I have little containers that I toss die cuts shapes in, borders that I cut and decide not to use, etc.  It is so handy to have these elements cut and ready to go when I'm on a card making spree.    This final card even uses a frame I made from a scrap of a die cut.  How stinkin cute is that?  A bit of doodling and you have an interesting element for a card!

Elf'n Around...


It is Thursday and time to share another card featuring the Elf'n Around stamp set that is included in the October Christmas Behind the Scenes Creative Cafe Kit. 

For this card I stamped up a pile of the holly image on a piece of acetate with Stazon ink.  I applied glue with the detailing kit to the back of the image and then added glitter.    Once dry, I cut the holly pieces out and now have some fabulous embellishments for any holiday project!

I created a frame on this card, attaching the holly pieces in alternating positions. 

I stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers.  I added Gold Medal You're So Fine Glitter  to the stars and the jingle bell on his hat.  The image is matted on black cardstock and popped up on foam tape.

 

Supplies:
You're So Fine Glitters:  Patriot Red, Fir Tree Green, Gold Medal

Zentangle Meets Fred, She Said!

 Ooh, it's Fred, She Said day...and you know if you have followed my blog long that I like my Zentangle!  I was going to color these line images, but that didn't happen.  I got tangling and didn't stop until I had a whole page of flowers and leaves!  I only used two patterns, but I really like how these cards turned out. 
The flowers and leaves are from the Doodle Flower Trio set and the sentiments are from the Carnations Plus Bonus Sentiments set.    I simply tangled each image, fussy cut them and then folded the leaves and petals over my craft blade to give them fabulous dimension!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Kitty

This kitty is having too much fun with the Jack-O-Lantern!  I decided to tangle a frame around the Cat n Jack image from Inky Antics and shaded it with pencil. The image was colored with Copic Markers.

Have a happy sort of day!
