Hedgie Slider Birthday Box

I've been on a search for some new inspiration lately. I love making cards, but I have been wanting to do something different. So I've been spending lots of time searching blogs and websites trying to find something different and fun. I stumbled across this project and couldn't wait to do it.  This project is called a sliderbox.
I got the template from Splitcoaststampers. At first I followed the directions explicitly, but when my finished project didn't turn out, I did some research and found someone in the comments that made some tweaks. I tweaked my project a bit, and it worked just fine.
I found that instead of using a strip Plastic Grocery Sack that a Satin Ribbon worked even better and was much easier to use adhesive with. I also found that making the slider card a little more narrower held the slider base in place. If none of this makes sense, read through the Splitcoaststampers tutorial, and it will.
So after I got my Sliderbox to work, I had the fun privilege to decorate it (My FAVORITE PART!!)
New Composition
The challenge over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog is "Paws for Thought." Since I LOVE Christy's images I figured I would use one for my box anyway. I thought about using one of her super cute Doggy images, but I recently lost my sweet, 3 year old, miniature dachshund - Fudge - due to a HORRIBLE accident while we were away from home for a week, and I am struggling very much still with it all so a Doggie was too painful at this point. I chose to do something different. I used a Hedgehog.
New Composition
I thought the image called for some reds and pinks, So I thought the red an pink flower paper that I picked up from Michaels was a nice touch, and I even put a Hedgehog on the secret slider!
New Composition-1
And Here's the whole thing slid out. The drawer is perfect to put some goodies or a gift card.

I hope you enjoyed my card because I sure enjoyed working on it!!! Oh, and another side note, I made a new watermark too. I thought I needed something with my website on it. Cute eh!?

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.
