Stars Are Brightly Shining!

Today I would like to share with you a baby card that I made using the two new image releases by Jellypark Friends. I made this card for one of my sons' friends who will become a new "Daddy" next month! It's hard to believe that he has friends who are old enough to start their families but...he is 24! (I had his sister when I was 24.) Times sure have changed now though from when I was younger. I think the average person doesn't even get married until they are in their late 20's or early 30's.
Well...thanks for letting me ramble!
My card has two of the new images. The sweet teddy bear with the star and that darling sentiment with the hanging stars can both be found at Jellypark Friends.
Here is what I did with them...

My images were colored with my Copic markers. The background design paper is from Quick Quotes. I used SU solid color card stock. My stars were outlined with a glitter pen and cut out using my Cricut Expression machine.
Check out the great creations made by our talented design team and check out the challenge too. You may become one of the "Stars" that will be Shining Brightly!
Have a great Friday everyone!

Thanksgiving Blessings

Do you believe that Thanksgiving (in the States) is only 4 days away? Of course I have a ton of things to do before the day and am working every day up to Thanksgiving! Wednesday won't find me home before 9 PM then I need to bake an apple and a pumpkin pie, make fruit salad and put together the stuffing for the turkey. I guess I will have to crack open a bottle of wine to "help me stay awake"! lol! I digress though so
on to my card...

I made this card using a colored image from Doodle Pantry called Barn. I double stitched around the image onto some grayish blue card stock. This was then placed onto 2 more layers of paper. A pretty design paper was added to my base card along with a piece of gro-grain ribbon. Three buttons that were tied with embroidery floss were added to the ribbon. My image and papers were added to that. Finished! Phew! Here is a close up of the barn...

I love how it turned out and it is in the mail on it's way to my big sis in Florida. This image is so pretty and comes in a few different colors along with a lined image. I can see it being used for many different occasions in my future. Check this set out along with all of the other new sets at Doodle Pantry.

Oh Happy Day!

It's time for another challenge from Jellypark Friends! This time the challenge is to use an image or stamp that depicts hunger by having a drink or food in it. I have chosen an image that was released last February by Jellypark Friends. Here is my card...
I colored with Copics and used my computer to place that 1st purple border around this lovely lady sipping wine. (Hopefully that will be me this!) The sentiment is from Studio G. I used SU black ink to stamp it.
There is also a new release right along side the challenge so make sure to pop over to Jellypark Friends and check it out!
Have a great Friday everyone. I can't believe it is finally!

Hi everyone. Sorry that I haven't been around for a few weeks. Life sometimes has a way of getting away from you and these last two weeks have shown me just how much! lol! Everything is well in my life just a lot of"stuff" going on which has kept me away from my computer and crafting room. But I did have a chance to create last night and wanted to share a card I did using one of the new releases from Doodle Pantry. I used the new Wagon Wheel set.

I colored the image using my wonderful Copic markers. I printed out the image and sentiment on my computer using Photoshop to size and place the sentiment. I think this will be a perfect card for one of the men in my life. I am always needing birthday cards and have decided that I need to "grow" my stash of them.
Here is a photo of the finished card.

Check out the wonderful new images at Doodle Pantry. I am loving all of them and I bet you will too!

Jellypark Time !

Over at Jellypark Friends we are unveiling two new images and a challenge for you! My card was done with one of the new image releases. I made a trifold card (I think its a trifold...). The image is a sweet giraffe just perfect to use on a new baby card which is what I have created. I sized the giraffe in 3 different sizes in Photoshop. Two of the images I then placed on the front of the card (representing the new proud Papa and Mama). The third giraffe takes center stage on the inside of my card as the newest addition to the family. All images were colored using Copic markers. The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye using their Stella & Rose paper pack. I love the muted softness of these designs. Solid paper from Stampin' Up.
Here is the outside of my card...

Here is the inside of the card...

I used a computer generated sentiment on the inside left (That I made up) and a stamp on the far right side. The welcome baby sentiment under the giraffe is a retired stamp from Stampin'Up. Here is a closer look at the sentiment...
All of the cream card stock was edge distressed using Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink. Love that ink!
Check out all of the creations made by the DT and the challenge too! You just might be our next winner! Have a great weekend everyone...

Doodle Time!

Happy November 1st everyone! Did you say "Rabbits" when you woke up this morning? It is an old English tradition that is suppose to bring you good luck for the month. I need all of the luck I can get so I sure make sure to say "rabbits". LOL!
The 1st of each month also brings new sets of wonderful images from Doodle Pantry! I chose the cute set called "Raccoon Rascal" to work with. What a darling set! I used the outlined images and my Copic markers to color them. I also combined the raccoon image with another one of Doodle Pantry's images, the planter from the Topiary set. Here is what I created:

The design paper is from the Raccoon Rascal set as is the sentiment too! I used a Nestibilities Die to cut out the image which I then "faux" stitched around its border. A pretty polka dotted ribbon and my card was finished.
Go on over to Doodle Pantry and check out all of the new sets! They are all truly wonderful!!!
