Owl Thank You Card

It has been almost 5 months since I have posted. I am sorry for the silence lately, but I have been busy with a new job, church functions, and everyday life. During my five months of silence I have still been crafting, but not as much as I was this summer. I have been busy with other projects like a quilt for my husband, an afghan for me (which is still unfinished) and a few various paper craft items. I am itching to get back into the swing of things, and have been bitten by the inspiration bug once again so I foresee more posts in the future. Without further ado, here is my latest make.

In my limited spare time, I have taken a few classes from Kit and Clowder and have been working on learning to color backgrounds for the digital stamp images I color. This card is my first attempt at a sunset background, I still have some perfecting to do, but I didn't think it was too bad for a first shot. IMG_20160221_212812_333000
The sweet image is one of my favorite Tiddly Inks, Owlways love you. I decided I would enter it into Challenge #176 - Thinking of You on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog

I  used my Cricut Access subscription for the owl cut out and the oval sentiment. For the flowers in the corner I used Lia Griffith's Design. The card design is an easel fold with a 5.5 in square base which is one of my staples. The papers are all various papers I have had in my stash for years.
Hope you enjoyed my card, thanks for reading!

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

Demera Bashful Fae Scalloped Easel Card

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing yet another card I made with my Scalloped Easel SVG Template that I designed this week. Keep looking later this week for more info on how you can get that SVG for free.  For this card I used a freebie image from the Faery Inks Facebook group. I believe she is called Demera Bashful Fae. If you just LoVE this image check out more from the Faery Inks Shop. You can also join the Faery Ink Facebook Group as well.

One of my favorite parts about the Easel Cards is that they make the cards more like gifts than cards. I love to accent them with tons of embellishments as well. This one I acc noted the images with a variety of pink papers and fake daisies and a couple of my handmade roses, as well as some burlap and lace.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I am still very much getting the hang of coloring with alcohol pens, but I am pleased with the way she turned out.  I am super excited about sharing my SVG with everyone so keep checking…
