Cindi Bunns

Hello everyone!   I would love to take a moment to share with you my DT project for the newest challenge on the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog.  Our theme for this challenge is 'Christmas Confections'.  Your project must include Christmas related sweets or treats...something many of us might be working on this weekend!    For my card I am using Cindi Bunns, and I wanted bright fun colors.  I hope you like her!




Here is a close up of this cutie:


For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, Crate Paper  paper and stickers, and Memory Box die.  The image is printed on x-press paper. I also added white frantage and glitter around the image for an added look of snow. 

We would love to have you join us over at the Lacy Sunbshine Challenge Blog and join our 'Angels Sing' challenge.  There are beautiful projects by my fellow DT members to help inspire you too!  Hope to see you there.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Ike's Art

Good morning everyone!  I was asked by my friend Anne Lise to be a guest designer for an inspiration post featuring some images from Ike's Art.  The theme was to create a small gift or tag using a masculine image.  I have to say, I found it a bit challenging, as most of the images I do are quite girly, but I am always up for trying something new. so I gave it a whirl. I hope you like it!


For my project I colored the image with Copic markers, and created a tag.  For the tag I used paper from my stash (it is Valentine paper I have had for a while), fibers, ribbon, and dies from LaLa Land Crafts and Memory Box. 

The Copic colors I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E93 & R11; hair - E21, E23, E25 & E29; suit - E33, E35 & E37; flowers - R24, R35, RA46, R59, B21, B24 & B26.

You can see the awesome projects by her DT on her original post here: http://barnemix.no/index.php/hobby/kortlaging/763-inpirasjon-fra-ike-s-art

Thanks so much for taking a peek! I'll be back shortly with a fun card for you.

Good evening everyone!  I'm excited to share my DT make for the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group for this week.   I'm using this beautiful image Fairy Wren. I am a little nervous sharing this, as this is my first attempt at using pencils.  Eeeek!  But hey, I guess we all have to start somewhere, right?

For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper and elements from October Afternoon, Wild Orchid flowers and LaLa Land die.  It took some time to color her, bur I think I'm going to play around again soon with the pencils.  I really like the look.

Charis

Happy Friday!  I hope you had a great week!  It is time for a new Anything Goes Challenge over in the Art by Mi Ran Facebook Group.  The twist this month is 'Use a Die Cut'.  For my DT Inspiration I used the gorgeous digi Charis.  I just love this image, and I hope you love what I did with her! 


The Copics I used are: hair - E35, E37, YR23 & Y21; dress - YG67, YG17 & YG03; flowers - RV23, RV25, RV29, Y32 & Y38; snowflakes - BG000, B000, B00, BV000, BV00 & RV10.  The image is printed on x-press paper. 

Here is a close up of this beauty:


For my card all I used is Bazzill cardstock, and Spellbinder dies.  The image has so much detail and color I really didn't want a card to compete with it. I did want to follow out optional theme, though, so I simply cut the image and several pieces of cardstock using graduated dies.  Each layer has foam tape behind it for dimension.  CAS, but I think it makes a statement. I hope you like it!


Have you played along with our challenges in the Art by Mi Ran Facebook Group? We have 2 challenges a month, and there are lots of chances to win some of Mi Ran's gorgeous digis.  We also choose Guest DT's with each of our Anything Goes challenges.  We hope to see you there!

Autumn Blessings

Hello everyone in bloggerland!  I am popping in to share a card I made for the new challenge on the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps who will be giving the winner a very generous prize of 7 free digis!  How sweet is that?  Out theme this week is a fun one too - No Square Cards! I don't know about you, but my go-to card is the 6x6 square, so I really had to step out of my comfort zone a little.  


For my DT card, I chose to use this fun digi called Girlz - Autumn Blessings.  I think she is so sweet.  I've colored a couple of their Girlz stamos, and just love them!  Hope you like my 'Not Square' card!



The Copics I used are: Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & R11; hair - E13, E15, E17 & E18; skirt - B91, B93, B95 & B97; shirt - YG03, YG17 & YG67; shoes - E21, E23, E25 & E29; pumpkins - YR14, YR21 & YR68.  I used a bunch of greens for the leaves and bushes, but didn't keep track.  There are so many that work.  The image is printed on x-press paper.


For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper from Farmhouse paper, ribbon, Wild Orchid flowers, and dies by Spellbinders and Memory Box.  I used my largest circle die for the folded portion of the card, and used a smaller scalloped circle and plain circle for the front.  I really do love this type of card, and I hope you do too.  We'd love for you to join our 'No Square Cards' challenge this week!  Head on over to the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog to see what the other DT members have created to inspire you, and to play along.  Thank you for stopping by!
