A froggie Card..

So... here is a fun card I made for a thank you for my son Stretch to give for all the amazing Christmas items he received this year.. I used a Dustin Pike digital stamp..LOVE this froggie.. so cute.. and fun to color..

I added a lot of fun stuff to this card.. some shaved ice, fibers, copic markers, transparency with words written on it.. I then painted the back of the transparency.. I also added some funky fibers to his hat :) oh.. and the best part.. this card GLOWS IN THE DARK.. I kid you not.. if you want to make a card that your kids will LOVE.. get some puffy paint for .50cents and make a card with it.. I used distressing ink.. also blue and green glitter puffy paint..

I wanted to make it look like he was really sitting on snow.. so this is where I added a bunch of the cotton fibers I pulled apart to literally nothing and glued it on.. and added clear shaved ice to make it sparkle..

I hope you can see all the fun details of this card.. It really was a fun card to create.. :)

Wishing all of you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

The Play Date Cafe Challenge #9

Hey everyone it's that time again.. the wonderful Play Date Cafe Challenge.. and this week is hosted by the wonderful and creative.. Jules she has picked out some BEAUTIFUL colors.. Deep Blue, Gold, and Cream.. I was so excited to play with these colors.. in my mind I thought of a simple elegance and beauty.. I started to create this digital image called Fanci .. I love how this turned out.. :) I love when your fingers works along with your mind to create what you had envisioned.. I
I printed off the digital image Fanci, and started coloring.. I used copic markers to make her come to life.. I then started with the fun mess.. oh boy was it a mess.. I had feather pieces all over me... and when I woke up I still had them with me.. they had followed me up to my room, into my bed.. everywhere I looked there are little feathers.. I think I will be cleaning up fun feathers for a VERY long time.. but I think the result was well worth the mess..
So I added feathers, I layered them to give them lots of depth.. I wanted this image to POP right off the card.. :)
I then added some puffy paint.. you know the kind you used when you were a kid on t-shirts.. :) I had some gold glitter, so I made a few little dots along the side of the card.. and took a flower (a pink one) and colored it gold and added the glitter puffy paint to the edges.. I inked and distressed all the edges.. and called it good.. :)
I really hope you come and play with us this week.. I just know you will be inspired by all the creations the DT has made.. Don't forget to visit their blogs too.. :) and fill their love tanks..

The Play Date Cafe Challenge #8

YEAH!!! It's my turn again for the colors this week at the Play Date Cafe Challenge..
When I was looking for my inspiration I kept coming back to my three favorite colors for the holiday's, Red, Lime Green, and Bright Pink. I just love the way these three colors compliment each other so well yet they create such a fun and funky pallet to play with. I wanted to make this weeks challenge fun, light and playful.. so these were the perfect colors.. I hope you will join us in playing this week.. I can't WAIT to see what you create..
~Here for the base of this I took 2 baby food plastic containers covered them with paper and put rocks in them to hold it down. I then added a drink mix plastic holder.. I cut a hole in the top of one of them and put it into the bottom of the tree.. I
~ I used wires and twisted and turned them and added rhinestones, glitter, flowers, and dots all over the tree..
I colored my cute Chick using copic markers, and added some ribbon and flowers.. You can get this Digital Stamp HERE... HUGS

So I decided to create a more any day card.. I used a new digital image called Girl of the 20's you can get this stamp HERE.. I am really please how she turned out.. I used copics to color her with.., added a flower, some pen stitching, a little tag and voila.. easy peasy.. Oh I used the cricut cartridge "Wild Card" for the actual card base.. I hope you enjoy looking at this new creation.. and I hope you will join us in playing this weeks challenge.. don't forget to stop by the other girls blogs to see what they have created also..(links on my sidebar)

The Play Date Cafe Challenge #6

Play Date Cafe Challenge #6....Our design team host this week is Sarah .. If you go to her blog.. you will notice her blog header is this weeks inspiration.. the colors are dark green, light blue, dark blue, and orange.. At first my thoughts were.. What am I going to make?? Then I thought of creating a fun abstract shoe to go along with this challenge.. I ended up painting with acrylic paint the background onto my cardstock. I colored my "abstract shoe" with copic markers.. While I was creating this card it felt rather plain.. I couldn't figure out why.. So I decided to add stitching around the whole shoe.. I hand stitched the black you see on the shoe.. added a fun flower and a "happily ever after" quote.. I love how this turned out.. I hope you enjoy it also..Don't forget to check out the other girls blogs for their pieces for this Play Date Cafe Challenge.. and make sure to leave them love too :)

The Play Date Cafe Challenge #5

I am so excited to introduce you to our newest member Jules at the Play Date Cafe.. She is an AMAZING person and her talent is out of this world.. I envy her, as I am not good at the "vintage" take at things.. If there was one area of design I could work more on it would be that.. She however has it down.. and everything about her creations scream inspiration.. I am so happy she is going to be on our team.. for this weeks challenge she chose Silver/Metallic, Berry, Teal, and white.. I had so much fun creating this project... these are TOTALLY colors I would have never just picked up and placed together.. I really like how it turned out though.. :) So Thanks Jules for the wonderful inspiration.. I hope you all will play with us this week.. I love to see what everyone creates..
~So for my card.. When I looked at these colors I saw.. VINTAGE.. and I FREAKED OUT.. I mean.. I don't know how (wish I did).. to do VINTAGE.. I was like.. Okay what am I GOING TO MAKE!!.. So as I was pondering and panicking.. I thought of abstract, Japanese, Elegance.. so I created this digital image.. I LOVE how it turned out. so different and to me such an elegant stamp.. I think she could be used for almost any occasion.. and that's one of the main reasons why I love this stamp so much.. :) I ended up outlining the black parts in black puffy paint, and putting on a couple of lolly pop flowers, and of course distressed it.. :) Thanks so much for looking. HUGS

Just some fun cards

I wanted to just have fun and create some cards from some of the cute stamps I had been making.. :) it was so much fun.. Here is Snowball's 5 Cents card from me.. I used Copic's to color it.. and also just some CTMH stamp ink with a blending pen. I sewed the edges, and also sewed snowflakes onto the card.. I added some ribbon and a mini tag.. and on the hat, and coat edges I added some CTMH fun flock.. You can see it in more detail on the second little photo.. :)

Here you can see the fun flock that I added.. it just gives it some more dimension.. :) You can get this Snowballs 5 cents stamp HERE..

~Here is another fun card I made.. it was a SUPER EASY card.. I used my Free as a Bird digital Stamp.. I colored it using CTMH ink pads with a blending pen.. :) and a little bit of good old H2O I added some ribbon a little tag.. and of course distressed it a bit.. and viola :) a happy little cute card..
