Super Birthday

Another creation in my 30 Day Coloring Challenge!  This one is in honour of my little nephew.  He is a bundle-of-life-and-entertainment dude.  His favourite colour is orange, so I knew that this superguy needed to have some orange on him.  This is another card for his mama, my sis-in-law, for some fun kid BD cards.  

I did a mix of two MFT sets  - You’re Super and Super Boy, pairing it with some fun Simple Stories - So Rad designer paper and this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.  I took the sketch pretty literally with the addition of the fun stars from The Cat’s Pajamas.  

He’s sure cute isn’t he?  I really love these super kids!  

Nice to see you today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Little Red Beret

Hello, I’m back again!  

October is my birthday month and to treat myself I thought it would be fun to jump in with The Daily Marker’s - 30 Day Coloring Challenge whenever I can.  It’s all about spending 10 minutes a day (minimum) of colouring just for fun!  You can make your designs into cards, or just colour for the sake of colouring.  So, that’s what I’m going to try to do.  Sometimes you’ll see cards, sometimes I think it will just be showing off images that will hopefully later make it into cards.  

Today I put a card together with a little bear I coloured up last night.   It’s an adorable old image from Birdie Brown.  I love this little guy in his red beret and the fun stripedy shirt.  It has almost a French feel to it, so I kept some of those basic themes in the design.  The sentiment is from a PTI set I had that would fit in the little circle I wanted to use.    

My sister-in-law asked for a few kids Birthday designs, and I this would be a cute one.  

The shimmer I added to the balloon highlights doesn’t look really great in this picture, much better in real life :)  It’s supposed to be a subtle effect but photographed so differently.  

Here’s the Copics I used.   See you soon with some more colouring!  

Be Merry

Happy World Card Making Day!

 I didn’t want this day to go by without making a card to celebrate a day and creative pursuit we love!  Power Poppy has a great sketch challenge today that we hope you’ll jump in and create with! 

Julie challenged us to create a holiday card, using sparkle and this sketch and this is what I came up with using the gorgeous Poinsettia set.  

I stamped it in Toffee Crunch Memento ink....not that you could tell by the time I coloured it all up, but I wanted something a little softer as an ink for the design.  I found an older pack of papers that would work with the non-traditional colour theme in these icy blues and purples.  

For my touches of sparkle I have a beautiful sparkly ribbon, and what you can’t see despite all my best attempts at photography tonight is all the lovely sparkle I added on the design with a Wink of Stella pen.  The whole design has subtle shimmer.  

Here’s the pretty sketch to play with....

We hope you can be merry with us :)  Be sure to check out the Power Poppy blog for all the details on how to enter the challenge with us and how you can win!  

Here’s some more WCMD Inspiration from the Bloom Brigade!

Case the Cat!

Can you believe it?  We’re at the 300th TCPTUES Challenge this week!  We’re excited to bring you something really fun for this one.  It’s called “Case the Cat”.  Several of our TCP Cat Pack are going to show off their favourite TCP creation and you can choose one of them to CASE for the challenge.  

Here’s the card I chose.  

I’ll be honest...I had a really hard time choosing!  I have a lot of favourites and it was fun to peruse them.  But this one eventually won out because of the fun colours and patterns and the windowed design that I had fun playing with.  

Here’s a closeup where you can see the clear sequins, and the clear embossing I added inside the floral circle to give it some shine.  

So now you can pop on over to The Cat’s Pajamas Blog and find out all the details of the challenge, and get some more inspiration to choose from when you pick a Cat to Case!
