Bugaboo Guy Car Keys

Bugaboo has a Bingo challenge this week. I selected the row of sentiment/2 images merged/Washi tape, to create this easel birthday card for my car loving son.
Copic Markers used
The two Bugaboo images that I merged are Houses and Guy-Car Keys. There are sentiments on the front as well as inside, and the Washi tape is the little hearts on the top left corner.

Papers and ephemera from Carta Bella, Cartopia, a collection gifted to me from a friend who knows I have several car loving men in my family!

Thanks for dropping by. I love reading your comments!

Head in the Clouds

Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up. This week over, at Twisted Thursday, the optional twist is Double Embossing!
This adorable giraffe is called Head in the Clouds, and I just had to have him!

Zig Clean Color Real Brushes were used to color the giraffe. The embossed background is a Darice folder that was swiped with Powderpuff Chalk Inks for my first embossed element. For the second, the edges (cut with Penny Black's Antique Frames), I ran some of the chalk inks around the edges and then covered and heat embossed using clear embossing powder then popped the matted image. Some enamel dots (Large, Bella Blvd. and small, Whimsy), Nuvo red and black Crystal drops for the eyes and tongue, and a tiny glossed red bird from Memory Box finished up the card.

Thanks for dropping by. I always appreciate any comments that you leave.

Kawaii Coffee - Coffee Break

Having a new friend who is a scrapbooker, I have been looking at her site and finding that some of the layouts she uses could work for cardmaking as well. Most of them need to be minimalized though to fit into the smaller card space.

While on a hunt for more coffee images, I found Kate Hadfield Designs' free Kawaii Coffee coloring page, then I just had to have her Coffee and Cupcakes bundle, and then I found her challenge and thought, why not? Most of the participants happen to be scrapbookers, but I took the template and used it as inspiration to create a card.
Copic Colors Used
What fun this was to color! I colored with Copics and added some Spectrum Noir Shimmer, Nuvo Crystal Drops, and some Glossy Accents over the sentiment and other parts for added dimension. The sentiment is popped, and the background was created with a striped stencil and my air brush.

Thanks for stopping by. I truly love reading the comments that you leave!

Little Flower Fairy in Lavender and Lace

Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up. Isn't this the cutest fairy, called Little Flower Fairy? Our optional twist over at Twisted Thursday is Lavender and Lace.
I printed her on Glama Natural Opaline Translucent paper and colored with Copics on the back side to make this soft looking image. Very different paper to try to color. The lighter markers simply erase the darker, so a bit of a learning curve to get the results I was after.
The background paper is Distress Oxide Inks on Yupo paper then sealed with MicroGlaze. I added a touch of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a few shiny lavender gems.

Mixed Media May Flowers

The Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge for May is "May flowers".
I am working on an envelope book and this is one of the pages that will be in that book. Many of the pages will be made from long envelopes that are folded in half and cut open on the ends to make double pockets. I did a mixed media page here using Color Bursts, Nuvo Crystal Drops, Tim Holtz ChitChat, Glass Bead Glitter Gel, and flowers from Winnie and Walter.

Thanks for stopping by, and a special thanks to all that leave comments!

Little Patch Puppy

Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up. Our optional twist over at Twisted Thursday is Something to Wear.
This flower and button dressed up pup reminded me of the song lyrics If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair! And this pup is certainly dressed for something special! The image is called Little Patch Puppy. I used an easel card from My Scrap Chick and cut it with my Scan n Cut using Gina K papers. A white embossed popped sentiment and a few buttons finished up the card.
