Wedding Day

I made a card for the sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers for an upcoming wedding. 

 The image is from SU- I love this sweet couple.  I colored her with E 81 Copic marker and added Wink of Stella over that. I used Teresa Collins DP that I have hoarded for a few years.....  I added a seam binding bow and pearls to finish off the card. 
 This is pretty CAS for me, but love the simplicity and the image too.  The finished card is 5" x 7"

Alpha Z=Zany

Hi and Happy Weekend!

 I made a card for Earth Day today and made it into a Zany background for the Alpha Z challenge at Splitcoast.  I also recycled a card for the Ways to Use it challenge. 

 I added color using Distress inks over the original panel using Stencils.  I used a Yellow, a blue and a purple.  Then the panel was embossed, and I used Purple Distress ink on the folder. The image is Penny Black and the sentiment is CC Designs.

This is the original card. 

If you don't already belong to Splitcoaststampers, come on over and take a look at some of the challenges!!!

100th Birthday for a Fireman

A gentleman named Bud, who happens to be the father of a friend, is turning 100 in a week!  Yep- 100!  He started the Fire Dept in the little town he lives in, so with that in mind, made him this card:

I used a digi by KLM and colored using Copic markers. The background is from my stash-DSP from SU. The Kraft cardstock from the background was also used for the tag and for the brick the firefighting gnome is standing on.  The numbers and tag die cuts are die cuts that came with the Sidekick. 
 I used the Sketch challenge over at Splitcoast for the layout.

Jan's Digital Stamps April post

 The April challenge at Jan's Digital Stamps is just beginning- always AG and open for a month.  Jan has three new sets this month : ) 


 I used the set called Easter Blessings for this card. 

I made a second card for this month as well- I was enjoying creating on the road with the supplies I had in my carry-on : )

 These beautiful flowers are pre-colored- I love them!  I fussy cut one image, and fussy cut the flowers out of a second image and popped them up.  I had this pretty die cut with me, and added Stickles to the centers of the flowers in the die cut.  The yellow background is done using Distress Inks. This set is called Floral Flourish

I hope you will stop by Jan's challenge blog and enter into the challenge- it is AG and lasts all month long!
