Have a great day!
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 🙂
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? 🙂

Have a beautiful day everyone!
I kept the mid-section light to show some light areas of the cat’s color.
For my card base, I also stamped a ball of thread with very light gray ink.
Coloring is somewhat therapeutic and you can use any type of coloring medium as you wish. One thing that I love about the Some Odd Girl stamps is that they are big enough to color and very pretty stamp designs too 🙂
Until then! Enjoy the rest of the hop! 🙂
I’m checking in quickly to share my take in Freshly Made Sketches, Sketch # 256 Challenge.
I colored the kitties with promarker and fussy cut each of the colored images. I did a holiday hat from another stamp set Santa from My Favorite Things and adjust the size according to the kitties head. Some cutting and drawing to fit t the hats and I’m done 🙂
I’m entering this card to Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #213-Holiday.
I also added a crochet ribbon on top of the banner for some interest

I have a quick share of a card using Love Cynthia stamp.
I stamped the main image from two different sets and colored them with one of my favorite coloring mediums, the alcohol based markers, promarker and copic marker. I only have limited colors on these markers but I’m glad I’m able to use what I have and make the most of it. These markers are quite expensive especially the copics but I get by with my crafty coloring using only what I have. One doesn’t necessarily need to buy all the available colors in the spectrum to get you to coloring 🙂
One thing I love about alcohol markers is that it blends nicely when you combine 2 to 3 colors and they also give vibrant colors.
I die cut the frame using My Favorite Things scallop die and additionally stamped some swirly vines on the sides.
I’m using a card sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge # 192.

Just popping in quickly to share my second card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 2016.
You can find my first card entry here.
I totally forgot that I have this Die-namics Floral Fusion Cover Up die that I really haven’t used yet. Wow! That was bought sometime ago. I saw a card set before that used this cover up die and I made sure that time that I need to get this floral die. It’s a shame that I haven’t played on it yet until now 🙂
I’m happy to use it in today’s card background. I used it to die cut a subtle designed paper, with a hint of soft color outline.
Also, I had some coloring on my images, my gnome with watercolor and the fence and flowers with promarker.
I also placed a die cut vellum using MFT dies and placed it behind the images so they will not be lost in the floral die cut design on the base.
Note that you can click on the image for a larger view
the gnome and fence colored detail
A closer look on the Hello banner. I have the sentiment stamped on a designer paper and attached it to a toothpick, then tucked it behind the fence
And that is all. Until then!
My Favorite Things is running the 2016 Card Design Superstar contest and I saw the current entries from MFT blog. There’s a lot of amazing card submissions and its so great to see so many ways one can do on a stamp set 🙂 It will be closing in a few days but I’m taking my chance to share my take. I have nothing to lose right? It will always be fun.
I only have 3 stamp sets from MFT. One is the Santa set and the other the Pig and Gnome sets. I also have a very limited dies from MFT so I need to utilize whatever I have to create something fun for the challenge. One of the conditions is of course to use MFT stamps and dies only.
So here’s my contribution. I used a combination of the 2 stamp sets I have (Pig & Gnome) to create a small flower-pot scene. I first partially diecut the 3 gnomes in 2 separate panels, colored them with promarkers then later layered them using dimensional adhesive.
I also stamped other elements like the palette, flower pots, snails and mushrooms. Each and everyone is colored with promarker 🙂 I only have the coordinating dies for the gnomes so for the elements from the pig stamp like the flower pots and palettes, I fussy cut them. I know it will take a bit more time cutting but I love fussy cutting too 🙂
For my border, I used the wonky rectangles to add some accents.

A closer look at the colored images. Love coloring them 🙂
Another closer look of the layering and partial die cutting I did on this card.
Partial die cutting and panel layers. There are 2 different white panels with the gnomes, one has the 2 gnomes and the other layer with 1 gnome partially die cut with the rest of the flower pots etc.
A clean and simple card using my new stamps from WPlus 9, Get Well Gang.
So many cute images in the set but for today I used the dog image. I colored him with copic and promarker then diecut him along with the mouse and a medicine bottle.
I also run an embossed wonky stitches though it doesn’t show much in the paper. I need to add another paper next time to emphasize the embossing.
For some color, I also added some colored dots and distress inks in the background.
I used a sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches, Challenge #190 Sketch. I flip the sketch with the curved on top rather than to the left.
I’m also entering this card to CASology, cue card-Bark.
I did some mist and spritzing the other day and yesterday’s card and I continue to use that in today’s card share.
I used another mist background using Mr Huey’s Jubillee mini mist and love how that small circle dot mist mimics the circles in my die cut tag shape.
I’m using Paper Smooches stamps, firstly the main image and the pie and strawberry. I colored the images with promarker and copic markers for the skin color. Since the strawberry is a silhouette only, I stamped that only with red ink. I don’t seem to have a small cupcake stamp to let the guy hold as birthday present so I used the pie and top that with strawberry as alternative 🙂 That should do right? 🙂
