Spirit of Power

CPCM_CPC07_tbuI made this for last week’s Color Monday challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts Magazine. They have such fun challenges, and it is a great place to gather and chat with other women! They have a gallery to upload pics to, and all sorts of other extras like Bible Study, a Question of the Day, a General Chit Chat area – you have to go check it out!

On this card, I used two Our Daily Bread Designs sets – Scripture Collection 2 and May God Hold You. I used a Copic marker to highlight some words and some flowers, a white gel pen to add dots (I love dots), Nesties, and my Cuttlebug with the texture folder for the black layer. I totally enjoyed making this card!

I hope you’ll come and visit us over on the CPCM boards, and participate in the challenges! there are some for scrapbookers as well!

Beach Bunny

ISS_BeachBunny_tbuThis is Beach Bunny, from the InStyle Stamps line of Beach Time Fun Digital Downloads. Isn’t she fun??

To match the color on both the bottle of suntan lotion and the sun (both buttons I purchased from Hobby Lobby in a “beachy” pack) I got out my Copics to see what would work best. On the towel, I went with my darkest yellow, an highlight of brown to match the bottle.

I added an Imaginisce sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, to make the white space go away, highlighted with More Mustard just as my main image panel is. My dp is by Prima, from their Eire collection. My card base is Basic Black, to complement her sunglasses and the ink color on the sentiment.

Colorful Flowers

CPCM_NinaBFlowers_tbuAren’t these flowers gorgeous?? NinaB drew them herself, and you can download them for free here. This is one talented lady, I’m telling you!

I printed the image in a large size, so I could really highlight the flowers and the quote from Charles Spurgeon – it is a wonderful quote! The card base is one of the pre scored cards from a pack. To keep it simple, I used Basic Black as my highlight layer. I got my Copics out and colored the flowers in bright colors, and used a couple of DaisyD’s rhinestone blings to center two of the flowers. I really tried to leave it simple so the flowers themselves would be the focus!!

Cheers!

PAD_Cheers_tbuI totally adore this coffe cup ring image! It is from Queen Kat Designs. I paired it with a tiny circular Studio G stamp that says “Cheers”, which I got at Pez-a-Doodle Designs. I stamped both images using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, and then used Tea Stain and Frayed Burlap to sponge around the edges.I used the Inkssentials Foam Ink Blending Tool to do my sponging – I love that thing! And just for fun I added some Pez-a-Doodle Pez-a-Blings embellies, just to finish it off. They sell in single color packs, as well as multi color packs. The color I used here is Brown Patina Sparkle 🙂

I went monochromatic on this card – it just seemed appropriate. It reminds me of being in a coffee shop!

Fun with Lizzie Anne Designs

Pez-a-Doodle Wednesday!

PAD_B&WStudioG_tbuSorry this is being posted so late y’all! I had an out of town doctor’s appointment to go to, that took up the better portion of my day. Do y’all ever feel like you’re never going to get caught up? That would be how I feel, lol!

My images are Studio G stamps, which I purchased at Pez-a-Doodle Designs. I also used Studio G ink to stamp them! The sentiment is in silver, and the stems in black. I was totally in the mood for a black and white card! It’s simpe, I know, but I’m just glad I had the time to stamp!

Gotta run and tuck the little one in!

QKD is Blog Hoppin’!

QKD_You'remyperson_tbuQKD is blog hoppin’ today, in anticipation of the new releases coming up tonight! My card uss two of my favorite sets — Get Comfy and You’re My Person. I think that is the sweetest sentiment in the world!!!!

I popped the chair up on dimensionals and used a Copic marker to highlight parts of it. Now, I’m sure I’ve done something wrong with this post, like used a set I wasn’t supposed to — but with all I’ve got going on, I’m just thrilled to have made a card, lol! I can’t seem to get good images of the new releases I’ve made – they all come out blurry. So I’ll try again tomorrow when the light is better!
