Isn’t this little girl the sweetest? Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs released this back in August but it reminds me of Spring. It is called “Blowing Bubbles”. You can find your own by clicking on the link. The March choose your challenge is still going and will be going for 9 (nine) more days so you still have time to enter. I chose to use the sketch.
Let me give you a quick run down on what I used for my card. I used Copics: BG-0000, BG-000, E-000, E-21, E-70, E-71, E-74, E-77, R-20, V-12, V-15, a Marvy Silver gel pen, AC pastel CS, Recollections CS, Oriental Trading Ribbons, Michael’s pearls, Spellbinder’s Scalloped Oval, Sepllbinder’s Lacey Oval, and a Sizzix Majestic Labels #2.
I will have 1 more post for Fresh Brewed Designs. You all know that I think the world of Heather. I am going to take some Copic classes in April to try to get certified and then a couple more Copic classes in May. I have a couple of classes for some techniques scheduled this month. I want to try to get my skill levels up higher so that everyone enjoys my cards more. Please don’t go anywhere because I will be sharing the journey on my blog. And please keep visiting Fresh Brewed Designs.
Until we meet again…Ciao…
This month the challenge at Dragonfly Dreams is sponsored by Imagine That. The theme is Up, Up in the Air: clouds, birds, kites, balloons, butterflies. If you are like me you are ready for Spring! Here is my card:
Here are the items I used from Imagine That. I used the Birds in Spring kit specifically Psalm 118.24. I also used the Spring in Bloom Digi Papers specifically Leaf Floral, Dotty Blues, and Cherry Blossoms coral. I loved this set. I used my Copics to color the image. Here is the list of Copics that I used: B-0000, BG-01, BG-34, E-23, E-25, E-27, E-29, R-20, R-24, YG-23, and YG-25. I used Spellbinders Grand Label One to cut out the image. I hope that you will join us at Dragonfly Dreams for a fun challenge. Please go visit Kris at Imagine That and look at all of the really nice images that she has. I was not aware of her site before now and perhaps you weren’t either.
Please go to Dragonfly Dreams and check out the wonderful cards that the rest of the DT made as well. They are a very talented group of women. Until we meet again…Ciao…
I needed to make an anniversary card and I went to my Fresh Brewed Designs
rubber stamps and pulled out “Love Bird Owls.”
I think that they are so, so cute. I used my Copics to color them.
Here is the list of Copic colors that I used:
B-24, B-26, B-28, C-6, C-7, C-9
E-31, E-33, E-35, E-37, E-39, E-40, E-42, E-44, E-47, E-57, E-59
R-27, Y-26, YG-00, YG-13, YG-17
I used Paper Studio burlap and Spellbinders Heart Nestabilities. My cute
“It had to be you” stamp is from PrintworksCollection.
Some hearts strategically placed and my card was ready
to be mailed.
We have another challenge happening over at the Fresh Brewed Blog,
and the above blog candy is the prize. Read all the details HERE.
You must follow the rules to be eligible to win, and here they are:
For Dragonfly Dreams second challenge we were to use our favorite song. We were blessed enough to have Stitchy Bear Stamps sponsor us. I was able to use “The Power of Love” digital stamp. Now I knew ahead of time that Luther Van Dross, Huey Lewis, and Celine Dion sang songs with that title. I had forgotten about Jennifer Rush singing it. Also the songs are all different, at least the first 3 that I mentioned. Now while I was making my card I sort of vacillated between singing Luther’s version and Huey Lewis’ version. Apparently I wound up singing Huey Lewis’ version at the end because it is the one that says, “That’s the power of love.” I had the paper and the ribbon in my stash. I colored 2 of the digital stamps and I popped up one of them. I hand wrote, “That’s The Power Of Love…” with a white gel pen. I used my copics to color my images. Here is the list:
B-24. B-26, B-28, B-32
C-6, C-7, C-9
R-24, R-27, R-29, R-81, R-83, R-85
Please be sure to go check out the rest of the images that the DT did. You can see them here. They all did a beautiful job. And please go visit our sponsor, Stitchy Bear Stamps! They have all kinds of great images to work with. They have great images to work with for this challenge! I hope that you have found some inspiration here. Until we meet again…Ciao…
I received the watercolor crayons that I had ordered and so that is what I used to color the Valentine Girl. I didn’t write the colors down. It is a little difficult to get the watercolor crayons in such tiny spaces. But I was very happy with the final results. The paper and brads were in my supply already. I hope that you will go check out what is going on at Fresh Brewed Designs. There is always something fun going on over there. Go check it out and find some inspiration here as well at Fresh Brewed Designs. See you soon. Until we meet again…Ciao…
