Fairy Anniversary!

Hi everyone,

This card was made with the Saturday Sketch challenge this week. Paper Play challenge was looking for an anniversary theme but I was too late entering the challenge.. I decided to combine the challenges together but I didn't want a triditional anniversary card, here is the 5x5 card. A fairy blessing the Anniversary with her flower wand! I know I can sometimes live in a fantacy world. Oh, but what fun that can be! I colored the fairy with copic markers.  I made a mask and then spray painted the background.  Then  for the bottom border I used a stampin up wheel, painted glitter over top of the border to make it pop.Prema flowers were added after I painted the under one of the layers of flowers to look like leaves and added a rhinestone. The ribbon just finished it off. I would be so please to hear from all of you to let me know what you think of this non traditional anniversary card.

Stamp set: SU: flower wheel border, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Enchanted Lily.
Paper: brazzil purple, SU whisper white
Ink: SU bashful blue, black
Accessories: copic markers, air brush, scallop border punch, prema flowers, rhinestones, whisper white ribbon stickes for around the flower wand.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I love hearing from all of you! Have a great evening, happy creating everyone!

  Bitten by the Bug2 challenge is using Life is a Beach cartridge flamingo. The catch was to make the flamingo any color but pink to really make it a challenge. This was a fun challenge to do and the Design team cards are just so beautiful that I needed to make a flamingo for myself. Check them out and see for yourself how adorable they look. Second was Fantabulous Cricut challenge and the theme was Tropical. The DT had some great cards also.  I used the cuttlebug folder Victoria for the background. Cut the flamingo at 3.5, added faux stitching and stickles.

Ink: black gel pen

You Shine!

Hi Everyone,

My Creative Time with Emma this week is making a frame using Paper Dolls DressUp. I thought it would be so easy but when I tried to weld a few things together it didn't work. I finally decided on the emblem as my frame and welded two together for the card and then glued it to a 5x5 card stock background to give it more stability. I drew the face onto the camel and added some markings to the humps. The background sky is brayered with bashful blue. I'm very pleased with how cute it turned out.

Stamp Set: Scrappy Moms Stamps
Paper: SU creamy caramel, close to cocoa, very vanilla, DCWV all about boys stack, sun is a circle from a dimentional.

Sending you Sprinkles of Fun!

Hi everyone,

 My card is made for a couple of challenges. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday and Pear Tree Designs challenge is a male theme this week. I am pretty sure this card can be used for male or female. It's cute at 5.5 square. I don't do many square cards that large but this sketch just seems to need a larger area to make it work for me. I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the sprinkles but it doesn't show up in the photo. I also had to add my doodle art to finish my card off.
