CASE-ing the Amazing Kisa!!

kisaThis is Kisa’s card. The JBelle DT members all CASE-d one of her cards this week, while she cooked up the cutest tutorial for y’all! I fell in love with this ard immediately when I saw it on her blog. I was immediately drooling over her sketch, and knew I had a giraffe somewhere that needed some love! She specifically stated she wanted to keep it boyish, so my brain clicked and I decided I’d do a girlie version! After all, there must be a girlie version of all things boyish, yes?

dfa_pinkgiraffe1This is my version. LOL, it looks a little top heavy, but that is because I forgot to straighten the pic! Obviously, the giraffe is different (hers – Prima; mine – Doodle Factory), Instead of sparkly stars at the top I painted chipboard with Tim Holtz distress paint. And no brads for me – I used Liquid Pearls in White Opal everywhere. I used a piece of painted chipboard at the bottom as well, in place of a sentiment. I colored my giraffe with a copic marker, and then added Shimmer (Pink) Paint as my finishing touch! I love her, and this layout! THANKS KISA!!!!!!

Now, remember to check the JBelle Blog for her awesome tutorial and check the DT members blog’s to see what they’ve created! And oh, how could I almost forget this exciting news: From Midnight tonight untill Midnight on Friday , the SHIMMERZ ARE ON SALE!!!!! Aaaaaack! That is so exciting! They will all be 15% off. AND Lindsey has 4 new colors of paint in stock, and 2 new colors of blingz!!

My Last Twinkling Tuesday….

mttsc14And my sweet little one is our Guest Twinkie today! I told her she had to pick one green, and then anyother other colors she wanted. After *MUCH* discussion, she settled on Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White. I’m so proud of her! For a three year old, she grasps the concept of matching very well!

emerald-angelHere is what she and I came up with. Of course, she picked the image, the dp, the label shape, and had to have a trinket hanging from the ribbon.  We filed the edges of the dp, to add a bit more white.

I stepped down from the Twinkling Tuesday’s team because there are quite a few people on it now, and I felt my absence would not be as noticed. I have a lot of DT work to do,and Tuesday is one of my busiest days. I will miss everyone so much!!
