Super Survivor - The Power to Overcome

I decided to through my hat into the ring once again over at the tiddly inks challenge blog. This time the challenge, challenge 159,  is all about Super Powers. Christy has several great super hero digi, and of course I own pretty much all of them because I am a major lover of all the super hero movies and TV shows running now. So, while lying awake one night imagining what I would craft, I had a layout all planned out. My cousin's little boy was about to turn 2 and I needed to make him a card anyway so I thought I'd do a super power themed card for him. My idea totally changed and went from being a birthday card to something so much more. My Aunt runs a lot of marathons/5Ks for breast cancer and she will be participating in one this July, and it got me to thinking, you know what is really SUPER? Someone who is able to fight and survive breast cancer, I know several amazing ladies that fought tooth and nail to win and have survived, and sadly I know some who gave it their all and did not survive. I thought my super power card would honor those who have fought.  So without further ado....
I give you SUPER SURVIVOR. Anyone who has went head to head with Breast Cancer and has survived is a superhero in my book.
SuperSurvivorThis card was made using Avenger -Masked Hero which right now is one of Christy's $1 images so hop over and get yours today.  I picked her because she is a girl and I couldn't get over how adorable that star wand was. I colored her with prismacolors using a different blending technique than I've ever used with my images (just using a blending pencils, I've always used Odorless Mineral Spirits.)
I also used PicMonkey to design my printed graphics for the card, and I used the Cricut cartridge "POW, CRASH, BOOM" from their digital subscription.  Well I hope you enjoy my card! It was certainly fun to make.
Thanks for reading!

PS. You can pick this OOAK (One of a Kind) card up in my Etsy shop!

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a card using an image I had the privilege of coloring for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps Nov. 1st New Release.  I couldn't wait to color this image us as I had inspiration for what kind of card I would make before I had even printed the image to color. I love those AH HA moments.
This was my second attempt at a shaker card. I am still trying to get the technique down without getting sequins and glitter stuck on the foam that raises the shaker layers. But, I thought this turned out really well for a second attempt. Here is a close up of my colored image. I colored the image with my Prismacolors using the pencils themselves as the blending agent on Canson Mi Teintes white paper. The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from a friend of mine from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Card Swap. Let me Tell you, I am so thankful for Alyce and Kit and Clowder. I look forward to all the coloring classes and group support you get from being apart of her group!

Julia Spiri Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All! Today I am sharing a project I made using this "Mask Girl" stamp from Julia Spiri's Digital Stamp Shop. I used to not be into the color purple, but over the last few years, it has really grown on me, and I thought purple would be just fantastic on this image. 
I colored this girl with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens then I accented it with stickles glitter.  The card base is from another project I'm working on and will hopefully share with you all in the near future.  The lace and ribbons and green stick-on gems are all random finds from our local Walmart. and I accented with some Mulberry roses from Hobby Lobby as well as a couple handmade roses from your's truely.  Here's a little closer shot of the card and image.
I am entering my image in the following challenges: Julia Spiri Challenge Blog #25 Anything Goes with a Twist of Tic Tac Toe Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog #134 Lots of Layers + a Stamp Crafting when we can #130 - No Square Cards

Sasayaki Glitter Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All!
Today I am sharing a card that I created using this Super Cute image I got to color up for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps October 15th Release. This image is called Halloween Pups and you can purchase your own copy here. I love this image because it has more of an Autumn Tone than Halloween so you can use it for ALL your Autumn Themed Cards and Gifts, not to mention it is ADORABLE!


I used a template that I created in Illustrator as an SVG file for the card. This template has made it SUPER easy to cut out all my elements making my card making time way faster than normal. Keep your eyes peeled for more about that on a later post! I also created the sentiment myself in Illustrator. I am getting to the point where I like designing in illustrator almost as much as I like coloring and card making!
Here is a close up of the inside of my card. I accented the card with some harvest shaped buttons and some of my handmade cream colored roses.
