TGF: My Heart Belongs to You

Hey Everyone,

I took some time to catch up on some coloring... and also resting from working out... I think I was a little bit too motivated and tried to do two workouts in one day and I hurt by back on one side. LOL
Even though it literally took me all day... well with stopping mainly for the kids and hubby... I was able to work on this digi from the Greeting Farm that I've been meaning to color for ages now.

I used  http://thegreetingfarm.com/shop/index.php/digital/50s-sweetheart-digi.html

 I had a fun time making this card especially the coloring. 
For the base I used Bazzill Basics paper my friend BreAnn sent me. 
The Valentine's 6x6 paper pad by Recollections was sent to me in an SBS Swap
last year by my crafty friend Vanessa Bland. 
The word dies are from My Creative time. 
The Spellbinders Creatopia Frames 1 die was sent to me by BreAnn McFarland. :) 

 I added Wink Of Stella Glitter; which was also sent to me 
by my friend BreAnn McFarland.
(Sometimes I think of her like a crafty fairy god mother. heehee         
Here is the inside.

SBS DT: Dies and Judes

Hey Everyone!

Back today with a little image from Simply Betty Stamps and it's all about the Jude and the Rockers. We are to use any die cut; frame, border, cuts, anything just use any die cut from any machine or favorite die brand.

I used Baby Jude Addams that I purchased oooh so long ago and you can find him here: http://simplybstamps.net/item_1693/Baby-Jude-Addams-Digi.htm This particular digi did not come with a sentiment like most SBS digis do so I created my own with a poem I found online.

When I colored him up I was totally inspired by the baby Pubert Addams. He's too too cute but he is a handful little fella. LOL I also have a couple of Crafty friends that are Anti-Valentine so they also inspired this card... BreAnn and Tanja. Heehee.

 Since the card was inspired by a movie 
I used the film die which was gifted in a RAK by BreAnn McFarland.  <3 p="">
The button was given to me in a SBS Secret Pumpkin Blog Hop by Stacey Stratis.  :)
Here is a close-up of him. Too cute and has that totally lovable baby face.
I really love his expression.

Card Recipe:

 Digi Stamp: Jude Baby Addams
 
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers

Papers: DCWC The immortal Love Stack
and Bazzil Basics Paper for the base

Die/s: The Greeting Farm - Film & Polaroid die set
                
Accessories: Martha Steward Elegant Witch Fabric and pearl swirls are from Prima just colored with Copic in W9 to match colors of the paper/clothing. 


Thank you so much for visiting.

TGF Hello Cheeky Friend

Hey Everyone,

Haven't been creating much... have an no energy and no mojo. I forced my self to do a little coloring with pencils to bring my mojo back and I created this card for a friend.

I'm using Cheeky Beach (click on the link and you'll find the rubber stamp there)
The Cheeky Collection are my most favorite line from TFG stamps :) I have all but one.
 I used my Prismacolor pencils to color her. 
The Spellbinders/Shapez die Frame 7 my friend BreAnn set to me
and the seashell and starfish is from My Creative Time set called
Surf's Up Stamp Set and you can fine it here.

SBS DT: Color Combo

Hey Everyone,

Simply Betty Stamps is bringing back the Teen Scene Steampunks! These cuties will be making their way onto the site something this month.  There was a contest going on at Simply Betty Stamps Fan Page and you just have to use your favorile color or favorite color combo.

I love all of the colors... rainbows... iridescent anything.... but for this card I chose a color that pops for me that I enjoy buying and that is HOT PINK and black.

I used My Funky Valentine Betty (will add the link when it's back in the shop) in the meanwhile you can look around in the teens section if you like this style of digis.   Here is the link http://simplybstamps.net/category_331/Teen-Scene-Digis.htm

Okay here's my card.

I colored her with Copics. I printed her pretty small 
and took me a lot longer to color but it came out alright in the end. 
I used Bazzill Basic cardstock for the base and The Sweet Lace cardstock from DCWV
the steampunk gear dies are from Prickley Pear and I bought them here  http://www.thestamproom.com/search.aspx?manufacturer=24
The big heart box is actually the one she's holding 
I just flipped it, enlarged, fussy cut it and then I covered the hand 
with some of the design paper I used as the back ground. 
Here is a close up of the digi.
Took me a while to color it only because it's much much smaller than what I'm used to coloring. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Slinky Tart DT: Valentina has gotcha!

Hey Everyone!

Posting my very first blog for the brand spanking new Slinky Tart. This digi brand was created by Tamara van Wijk, she is the owner of the former The Stamping Chef but unfortunately had to close that shop... she now is only doing Smexy art and Pin-Up style but I love it! If you have any questions regarding the new shop http://slinkytart.com/Store/  even for the old store TSC, please don't hesitate to contact Tamara @ info@slinkytart.com.

Now to show you my creation with Valentina, just click on the link and you'll find her there if you want to buy her. If you love these Smexy/Pin-Up Styled digis then you would love to join in at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SlinkyTart/ there are sometimes prizes, get info from store, even inspiration from everyone else who loves Slinky Tart and sometimes who knows... a discount code.


 I loved coloring Valentina with my Copic markers.
The clouds I created with my Caran D'ache Supracolor II Soft water color pencils
then of course brushed a little water over the drawing for soft puffy clouds.
The Gotcha, arrow and small heart cuts were from the Silhouette store.
The awesome red and blue Bazzill Basic Paper were gifted in a big stack from
my one of my Crafty BFF's BreAnn. :) Thank you so much. 
The super sexy image was provided by Tamara. Thank you very much as well.  
Here is a close up of the face.

I hope you love this image and style, they're so fun to work with.

I leave you with the link to the store and the Facebook page

SBS DT: Favorite SBS image

Hey Crafty Peeps!

Happy New Year!!! I hope you all had a beautiful holiday season. Today I'm sharing my little card... I colored the image a looong time ago. LOL So the challenge over at Simply Betty's Fan page is to use your favorite SBS image and it's an anything goes challenge.... Woohoo! Crafty Freedom! LOL
The crazy part is that I have sooooo many that I would call favorites it's hard to choose just one but I chose this one since it was already colored  up and all...

The Challenge details can be found here:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1022940871056634&type=1 
You have until  Thurday January 7th 11:59PM PST- it has to be uploaded to that specific album.

Her name is Doctor Brittany and you can find her here http://simplybstamps.net/item_1381/Doctor-Brittany-Digi.htm

The hair looks crazy to color but it's the fun part for me. :)
Whenever I get a chance (aka time) I try to challenge myself with something
a little more difficult to color. I perhaps may be easy for someone else though...
you just have to give it a try. 
I colored her up with Copic markers and I tried to match it with 
the little ribbon Corinne sent it to me in a Simply Betty Swap,
You can check out that blog post here:  
My mom found me those pretty papers from a either a yard sale :) 
The papers were still new and wrapped and the recollections cardstock I have
matched it perfectly. 
The little butterfly dies are from Prickley Pear and I bought 
that little die set from one of my favorite online shops

Thank you for stopping by.

Irene's Birthday and Blog Hop 2014

Hey Everyone,

Today it's sweet and playful Irene's birthday (she's Corinne's sweet angel twin) heehee. We are making their blog hops separate since they do have separate birthdays being twins.... How cool is that???  Irene is always so sweet and like Corinne has some amazing coloring skills, from Color pencils to Spectrum Noir to Copic.... she's can also be our partner in crime when we playfully tease Corinne. heehee. Thank you Betty for letting us have this cute cute stamp, I soooo picture Irene with these sweets and posing like this. LOL

You can find this digi at Simply Betty's Stamps store. Here is the link:

http://simplybstamps.net/item_3052/Irene-Bday-Sundae-Digi.htm

Happy Birthday Irene!!!


Here is my card.



I colored my image with Copic markers
I also used the same paper line that I used with Corinne's 
card which was the Pebble's Birthday Wishes paper pad
I used Sakura gelly rolls as well to add a little shimmer to her shirt and shoes.



Here is a close-up to show the shimmer.



Thank you for stopping by

Corinne Jones Birthday and Blog Hop 2014

Hey Everyone!

It's a happy day today! It's our friend Corinne's big birthday... Guess how old she is??? Old as dirt but who cares right? Everyone likes to play with dirt every now and then... LOL jk Corinne. We love you woman! If you are new to the SBS fan page or any of the crafting pages we follow along with Corinne, you get to see that we mess with her but only for fun and would never ever be hurtful to her ever! Although she might play the victim sometimes..... hahahaha. In reality we appreciate all of the hard work she does. She is very helpful from sun up to sun down and will do "almost anything" to make us smile, feel welcome, and to give knowledge of things in the crafting world. She tells it like it is and doesn't sugar coat it unless you're like 4 LOL :) She is very sweet when she wants to be other wise just picture a grumpy cat face with a big red wig. LOL OMG she's going to kill me or I'll be in the corner forever until my bones are dry and brittle.

Okay, before I show the card I worked on I'd like to say thank you very much to Betty for letting me join in on this fab hop and giving us this cute and sweet smiling birthday Corinne. You can find this digi here: http://simplybstamps.net/item_3051/Big-Birthday-Cake-Corinne-Digi.htm

Happy Birthday Corinne
 I colored her up with Copic markers.
I bought this die from Joann's when it was 50% off... oooo yea!!!
The paper is from Pebbles which I had never heard of but 
I found it at Marshall's.... hadn't been to that store since I 
was searching for my prom dress.

Here is the close-up
Corinne loves the color black although inside I believe she's a very colorful person.... :P
Her artwork and crafts are all full of color but she loves to wear black but since it's her
birthday I decided to add a little shimmer with my
Sakura Gelly Roll and I also added an earring since she wears long long earrings. 

Thank you for stopping by here are the links to the hop.

Secret Santa Swap with Mr. Frosty

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to share this little card I made for a Secret Santa Swap a while ago... I guess I could share the card I made but the card I received I will have to show next month???

I bought two of these stamps because I thought they were so cute. I had to buy one for Pam and one for myself. I've done the swap thing too many times where I bought something for the receiver and then I couldn't find one for me. LOL

I bought Mr. Frosty of Whimsy Stamps from Jamie's store: https://www.zibbet.com/not2shabbyshop.
Jamie often  has sales and even little monthly contests going on in  her Facebook fan pagehttps://www.facebook.com/groups/103832353026882/ oh and she announces the challenges or sales on her YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/ScrappinStampers Just check her out she's very sweet and very fast at shipping.

 I colored him up with Copic markers
I made the flowers with my Cricut
The paper is from Recollections. 

 Here is a close-up of the image and snow with Frantage embossing powder
Here is to show the two stamps I bought... 
of course the one that is out and trimmed is mine.

Thank you for looking.

12 Days of Inspiration YouTube Hop

Hey Everyone,

Just doing a quick post for a YouTube Hop I participated in, it's called 12 Days of Inspiration and it's hosted by Jamie Peters from the Not2Shabby Shop on Zibbet. Here is the link to the shop
https://www.zibbet.com/not2shabbyshop here is the link to the Facebook Fan Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/103832353026882/ and here is the YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/ScrappinStampers

Okay So I made a gift that you can give to co-workers... that is hand sanitizer stocking stuffers. LOL
I used Dolly With Gifts She's a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm but I bought her from Jamie's Not2Shabby shop.

 I colored her up with Copic Markers
I used several dies from http://www.my-creative-time.com/
The project was very quick and easy... just make sure you have 
your glue gun hot and ready. 
 I bought the smallest hand sanitizers I could find 
and it was just right for this die.
This is how the back looks. 
I made sure to use a cardstock that had designs that would be not be upside down
when the diecut was creased and folded.... I hope I didn't loose you there... LOL

Thank you for looking. 

Here is the video for the YouTube hop
If you watch from the YouTube page you can see
all of the links for the hop. 

I hope you liked my little project.
