Happy Birthday

My grand daughter is having a birthday soon and this is the card I made for her.  Pink is her favorite color so I know it will make her smile.  She has long blonde hair too, and her mother is always doing something special with it. The image is from Besties Digital Designs and I colored it using both copics and colored pencils.  Her images are so cute and fun to color as she always has a lot of detail in them.  I love how it came out.  I am entering my card in the Friday Sketch Challenge #101.  
I am also entering it in the Craft You Passion challenge #282  which is anything goes.

Now I have to work on a card for my great grandson as his birthday is the day after my grand daughters.  Busy, busy, busy!!!

Peace on Earth

The challenge at Pals Paper Arts #269 had a wonderful sketch for this challenge.  I turned the sketch to so I could do a standard A2 card.  I stamped out this beautiful bird and then scanned it into my computer.  I decreased the size of the image and then printed it out with my laser printer.  I then ran the image through my laminating machine with gold foil to get the image to glitter with gold details.  I could have embossed my image, but I really like the look of this technique, but you have to have  a laser image for it to work.  I then used some color pencils to add a touch of color and the bird looks amazing.  Then I fussy cut it out to layer on my card.  For the wreath I again first stamped it out, then scanned it into my computer to enlarge the image and then printed it out.  I gave it more color with a green color pencil, and then added the red crystal dots and the red bow.  For the sentiment I printed it from my computer and then did the foil technique on it as well using silver foil. After I had everything the way I wanted it, I cut the white card front down to size then rounded the corners and added it to my card base.  I love the way this card came out.  I tried to do a close up of the bird to show off the glitter look from the foil, but it didn't come out right. I'll try again to see if I can get a good picture and the will add it to this post.

Birthday Card

My card for today is a card that I made for the sketch challenge #110 at Sunday Stamps.  I wanted to showcase the cat and the bird so I didn't add much and kept it simple.  The result is very striking with the black and the white and then a pop of color with the image of the cat.

To Sexy For My Broom: A Halloween Card

I made this card to enter in the Anything Goes Challenge at: Craft Your Passion challenge #279, and the challenge over at Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge, Die Crazy.  It's a slider card.  I hand made the song banner and then cut out the web background using an svg cut from Birds Cards.  Her cuts are always so easy to use and they are free.  Her generosity amazes me.  I saw this cat and thought it was so cute I just had to make him on a card!  I colored him with copic markers and then fussy cut him out.  I used two pennies for the image so it would not spin around on the card and just slide.  For the inside I cut out a second web but turned it the other way so the slit is at the top.  I made a Tag to go into the slit with the words Boo and Happy Halloween on it.  It made the perfect Halloween card for my grand kids and great grand kids.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.  Judy
