Teacher Congratulations

A truly cute card this week, made with a new digital stamp release over at Whimsie Doodles. I used designer paper by Imaginisce called School Days as it was so very appropriate to go with this card.

The sketch is this weeks Mojo Monday.

I colored Hootie with Copics and I loved the outcome of the feathered look I got by following the fur tutorial that was posted on Whimsie Doodles a few days ago. I also liked how the card looked without the added rectangle that is shown on the sketch, as it showed more of the cuteness of the designer paper.

Have a good weekend everyone!

The "Grill Master's" Birthday

I'm really loving the latest images released by Whimsie Doodles.
The moment I saw Smokin' Hot Koale I knew I wanted to make a birthday card for my brother. Who is the "Grill Master" when it comes to anything barbequed.

Here again I used some of my new paper, yay! The new lines of designer papers that some of these scrap booking companies are bringing out are really hip, cute and cool. This designer paper is by Echo Park and there hasn't been a kit thus far I haven't fallen in love with by them.
A brilliant red with a modernized gingham paper, so very appropriate for this cooking card. My favorite thing about this card is how the BBQ itself turned out, it looks just like a real BBQ speckled and all. I used Copics to colour the image.

I used this Saturday's sketch from The Sweet Stop:

And an older color combination from the ColourQ:

Next up is Christmas, I'm trying to get going on those projects that I seriously need to start making. Keep watching for that in the up incoming weeks :)

Birthday Girl

This weeks card is for a few of my girlfriends birthday's this summer.
It also gave me the chance to ink up some of my newly purchased stamps. It was unusual for me as I have gotten so used to using digital stamps and the ability to re-size images where you can't with clear pvc stamps, so it was a nice change up.

The sketched used  for my card is by My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club - Week 29:

The color combination is from this weeks colorQ:

Thanks for viewing and have a good weekend!

Summer Birthday

Summer has arrived and with the hot humidity of the days, brings in the wild thunder and lighting storms in the evenings. This summer we have had our fair share of hail storms and tornado watches.

As we approach week #31 of the year so does the end of summer projects and soon to get started on fall and winter projects. I really don't know where the first 6 months of the year went but they flew by for me how about you?

Today I am showing off a summer birthday card to be giving to an Uncle from his niece and nephew. I was able to use some of the latest papers I bought while on my holidays and I just love all the bright colors the Echo Park Paper Co. Splash Kit has to off.

The color combination used is from colourQ:

I used last weeks sketch from Mojo Monday:

Enjoy viewing this weeks card and I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Come back soon :)
