Some Odd Girl March Challenge – twist pop it up

Hi there!

So happy to share this sweet image ‘Guitar Kody’ from Some Odd Girl. This is my take in this month’s (March) Challenge in Some Odd Girl, with the twist pop it up.  You may come and drop by the Some Odd Girl blog to join in and see the rest of the amazing creations of the team.

After coloring Kody with promarker, I fussy cut the image and pop that up with dimensional adhesives. You can  see the elevated image in my close up photo of Kody. I also popped the bubble speech with dimensionals.

That’s it for now and enjoy the rest of your day 🙂

Swoon Dakota Digi Stamp

Hello!

Today I’m sharing one of the newly released digi stamps from Some Odd Girl, Swoon Dakota. I love how she flipped one of her leg, adding a cute gesture on her character.

I recently bought some new Promarker, Skin tone last weekend and used it here to color Dakota. I think I need to do some more practice runs in blending with my new alcohol markers but generally pleased on how Dakota brought life to this clean and simple card.

I used some die cuts to add some texture on the cardstock border and also banner die cuts on top of my card. Some sequins will be fun too isn’t it? 🙂

Hello!

Hello there!

Its been very quiet here for sometime, as most of us are, the holiday season has also kept me busy as well.

And so..kicking with my first card project for the year is a fun coloring using Some Odd Girl digistamp, Mae. I used coordinating colored papers and vellum to complement the image colors. For texture I used some sequins to also mimic the vellum polka dots in the background.

My card inspiration sketch is from Sketch Saturday, Week # 342.

a2z Scrapbooking October challenge

Happy 1st of October!

Can you believe its only few weeks from now and it’s already Christmas! I already started my Christmas card projects last month and so expect me to continue sharing some more in the next coming weeks 🙂

Today starts the new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking blog. October theme challenge will be “to use two (2) Hero Arts products” in your entry.

For my card, I used Hero Arts Tree-mendous digital kit. I love the flexibility of digital stamps, easy to re-size or enlarge the image as you want. Here I printed smaller size trees and colored them with markers. I also added Clear Wink of Stella glitter for some shine.

I also added some gems, I arranged them in a way that it will look like snow falling from the sky. I added a vellum behind the trees to focus more on the trees as well and attached it by running a straight stitch using my sewing machine.

For the sentiment, I silver embossed them.

I added red ribbon to complement the red trees too.

Merry & Bright

Hello there everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Hero Arts Holiday Houses digi kit.

I love coloring lately with markers and what a better way to color using these beautiful winter homes from the kit.

I selected the houses and re-size some to give an illusion of depth when I arrange them into a card. It will not show very clear in the photos but  I also added some glitter using the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. Its looks lovely in real life 🙂

I also added some white dots into the houses to give a feel of snow falling into the homes. There are some gems too laid from top going down to mimic a snow fall 🙂 The pattern paper I used in the background is actually one of the digi papers in the kit.

The sentiment I used is also from the same digi kit 🙂 I also die cut the bottom page of the page using a scallop die.

And here’s my completed card.

3 cards from 1 digi kit: Artistic Circles

A fun card today, three card projects using one digi kit that I got from a2z Scrapbooking called Artistic Circle by Hero Arts.

I love working with digital kits as I can resize the images as I want and print them directly from my computer.

For my cards, I wanted to highlight the circles as my main focal point so here you can see each one of them closely. Only minimal embellishment and bright coloring for the circles. I think one can easily make a background pattern paper using these circles, you can fill the background piece with circles and color them with markers or colored pencils.

So which of these would you like?

Monster birthday

Life has been too busy and I haven’t shared a card project for a while.  Today, got a card for Create a Smile September Guest Designer search.  I love their images and decided to link up for the search. I used their free digi files. I used the monsters and the birthday sentiment for my card.

I printed the digis and colored them with promarker. I made the three of them as group and added one more next to my birthday sentiment, find them so cute with the googly eyes 🙂 I diecut Paper Smooches Duo Die 1 to nestle the 3 cutesy monsters and added some silver sequins to fill the space in the left panel.

I also added some Wink of Stella glitter in the monster’s tummy and spots 😉

Wonderful in every way

I have some digistamps in my file that I decided to use over the weekend and did some coloring using markers. I have one colored that I shared yesterday here.

For today, I used this cute pups that I got from The Alley Ways stamps freebie which are colored both with promarkers.

I did a circle impression using a circle die behind the pups for some texture. I also added some enamel dots for color. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant  Everyday Greetings stamp set.

I’m entering this card in CAS-ology Pet cue.

I also used the inspirational sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch # 85.
