Sketch Saturday #320

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I haven't gotten started this early, but I'm hoping for a good day a little later.  Right now, I'm here with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are sponsored by Sir Stampalot, who are offering a special prize package to the lucky winner.



Here is the great sketch from our own Vannessa:

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Festival Lily by All Dressed Up Stamps.  She was generously offered as a freebie to members of the Kit and Clowder Facebook group.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bunch of different colors of Stickles for lots of sparkle.  I finished my card with some Baja ribbon, a few flowers from my stash and my last (sniff) chipboard butterfly from Make it Crafty.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Elisabeth Bell's World July/August Challenge

Hi again!  I'm back, as promised, with my DT card for this month's Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge!  The theme this time is "for the boys".  You can make anything you'd like with a masculine theme, but you must use an Elisabeth Bell stamp (any company).   This came at a perfect time for me because I actually needed a birthday card for a little boy.  This one has already gone out to little Danny Nickerson, who turned 6 today.  Danny is from my hometown in MA and is battling a rare form of brain cancer.  There's been a huge outreach in the community to get lots of cards to Danny for his birthday and the response has been truly overwhelming!  You can read about it here.

Anyway, here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the party-themed patterned paper is from the We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray collection.  The cute image is Party Present by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some polka dot ribbon, a couple of epoxy balloon stickers and a few buttons finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog and check out the wonderful projects from the Digi Bells, GDT and our Guest Designer for the challenge, Linda!  We hope you will play along!  You have until August 22nd to enter your project for a chance at a great prize from Polkadoodles.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you've got some fun weekend plans.  It's been a very busy week for me and I'm hoping for a little downtime this weekend.  Before heading out for today's appointments, I am here to share my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Since it's the last Friday of the month, the theme is "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.  The twist is completely optional.  Remember you can now use any coloring medium, but you must still have a colored image on your project.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Mossy Meadow and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Christmas 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Mistletoe Kiss from Delicious Doodles.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few pearls and a sparkly Christmas tree sticker finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Dancing Fairy

Hello again!  I'm back with a super quick post to share a fun card I was working on and managed to finish up.  This one was just for fun and coloring practice, something I don't get to do very often.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned paper is from the Prima Fairy Flora 6x6 pad.  The whimsical image is Dancing Floral Fairy from Make it Crafty.  She's one of a series of three pretty floral fairies with some extras, too.  I printed her on MiC blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I've been trying to practice my creases and folds at every opportunity.  I struggled with this one a little, but I am going to go back over some of the lessons in Zoe's Techniques Behind My Creases and Folds eBook and see if I can refine this a bit for next time. I added a little white dot detail to her hair with my Sharpie White Paint Pen.  I also added a dotted background in pale pastels with my Copics. A few gems and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my simple card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Greens: YG01, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67, G94
Wings: BG10, BG45, BG53, BG57

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the Make it Crafty Facebook page for lots of inspiration, encouragement and fun chat!  You'll always have a heads-up on new releases, specials and friendly challenges!  And don't forget about the new photo gallery over at the MiC store!  Be sure to enter all your MiC projects there. It's simple to do and your project might just be picked for the Feature Gallery!
