pen to the water and then some clear glaze. Then I cut the
image out. I printed out my own sentiment to create a guy
birthday card. I may have to save it for my hubby's next 
birthday...in MAY! I raised the sentiment and image using

a cute little fish charm to it to complete the card.

Some Crafter's Companion Creativity

Crafter's Companion has some awesome card kits that
are simple and require little to make stunning cards.
Now, I love having a bit more of a person touch, like 
my own stamping or coloring, but these kits are just so
lovely! The quality of cardstock is top notch! Here are 
two that I made. Can't remember exactly which kit, or 
if I combined product from both of them, but, regardless,
they turned out very pretty. I am waiting for some of the
Crafter's Companion Luxury cardstock in gold to really
step up the elegance! Thanks for stopping!

paper and added some coordinating pattern papers.

matching Copic pearls and added them to complete

So happy to have Fred She Said as our sponsor this week!
They have some fun and beautiful designs! 
Be sure to check them out!

Here's my card!
The sentiment is what helped me create this card. I could 
envision the butterfly as "completion". From cocoon to 
something beautiful, as it will be when believers go to be 
with Jesus. I used a scalloped die cut oval. I sponged 
some ink on the edges. I printed out my images and 
colored them using Copic markers, except for the 
flowers. For them I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen for 
a great blingy sparkle. I printed 3 butterflies,
using two of them on the card and I cut the extra wings,
from the third butterfly, and attached them to the top 
butterfly for dimension. I did the same for the flowers 
on top. I popped them all out using pop dots. 
 The pattern cardstock was perfect colors
with a touch a sparkle too! It turned out nicely but
what type of card is this??? Who does it get sent too?
Sympathy? Birthday? Any thoughts? lol

So happy to have Di's Digis as our sponsor this week!
They have some fun and beautiful designs!

Here's my card!
This was super simple with a lot of flare. I used
Altnew stamps and a Stampaholic stamp positioner.
The stamps are three stamps to create the flowers
and leaves using different shades of inks. I used
FSJ inks and they worked perfectly. I can make
multiple cards in a blink with the Stampaholic
and the stamp placements all set up. Boom, done!
This is one of the cards I am using at my stamp club
this month. Nothing simpler!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 358

Challenge 358 - Masking

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Freckled Fawn!
Here's my card for this week's challenge.
This such a quickie card. It took me about 10 minutes 
to make. I had cut a scallop die cut and I used the 
part, with the die cut removed, as my mask. I used daubers
to apply my inks in a random pattern. My die cut flower is 
from Penny Black and my stamped sentiment is from Fun
Stampers Journey. Add a couple of coordinating gems and 
put my card together for the finished product!

So happy to have Sasayaki Glitter as our sponsor this week!

Here's my card!
This was such a darling image to play with. I used my 
Copic markers to color this and diecut it out with a stitch
rectangle. I mounted it on top of a Swiss dot embossed 
cardstock and mounted that up on top of a white card.
I added a bit of crystal lacquer to the little heart and used 
a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to glitz up the flowers.
The final bling was just the right things!

This card was so much fun creating. First I chose my papers
and decided my layout. I used a diecut for my image and 
colored that crazy little squirrel with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I used a dauber with a bit of a light tan ink to smudge around
the white and the squirrel. I edged the white with ink too. 
I took some coordinating papers and used a diecut to create
my leaves. I used a dauber to add some brown ink to the leaves
to tone them down. Then a cute bow of brown and tan twine.
I glued two of the leaves down flat and raised the third
using a bit of mounting tape to complete this fun little card.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 356

Challenge 356 - Anything Goes

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, DRS Designs!
Here's my card for this week's challenge.
This little image just made me smile! I'm always drawn
to frogs because my daughter, Amber, LOVES them. 
She will probably end up getting it! Anyway, I printed 
my image and colored it with Copic markers then cut
him out. Then it was just a matter of choosing papers
and layout. I loved the bug background papers but my
frog got lost in the pattern. So, I die cut a couple of 
ovals and used them as a back drop for the frog. After
doing that I saw a perfect spot for a few "ribbits".  I
added some clear glaze on the water to complete the card.

MHK Designs has such lovely images to work with and 
this little bird just captured my imagination and took me
right back to my Florida winters!! I printed the image
on watercolor cardstock and took great care when I 
watercolored the piece so the ink wouldn't run. The bird 
was colored using my Spectrum Noir markers and I did 
my watercoloring of the sky and water using Spectrum 
Noir Aqua markers. I had printed a starfish and sand 
dollar to color and cut out so I could had some POP 
dimension added to the cute sentiment! 
Create a layer and finish the card. Simple!

Tuesday Throwdown 354

Challenge 352 - Tic Tac Toe

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, MyGrafico!

Here's my card for the challenge.
I really had fun making this card. First of all I flicked a 
toothbrush full of Artist Liquid Masking fluid onto a piece of 
white cardstock. Then I sponges on navy ink and a bit of 
yellow and pink. The yellow and pink don't show very much. 
After the masking fluid dried I rubbed it off, leaving the 
star-like affect. I colored the images using Copic markers
and then cut them out. I added some glaze to the helmet
and space ship windows.  
I made my own sentiments for the front and inside. 
After I cut out my images I raised the little rocket 
and space boy on the front and added a bit of waxy flax for 
the rocket cable. I put my layers together and done!
