Crafty Gals Corner Challenge

 Happy Wednesday!  

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner blog.   Our theme this month is Buttons and/or Bows.  

And our wonderful sponsor is MoonFlower Digistamps

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

I used MoonFlower digistamps' Gigi Little Mermaid Gigi for my card today.  

I printed the image onto drawing cardstock.  I colored her in with Prisamcolor pencils.  After trimming the panel down, I inked the edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide.  The panel is layered on dark purple cardstock, then onto a grey card base.  

For the button, I added a Gina K Designs button from my stash to the flower in her hair.  I also added Stickles to the bubbles.  

I printed the image, a bit smaller, on an aqua card panel.  I stamped a sentiment from CardzTV Summer Fun stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  

To coordinate with the front image, I added Stickles to the bubbles again.  

Be sure to link your creations up, but there are a few simple rules you must follow:

Spring - Crafty Gals Corner Challenge

 Happy Wednesday!

Today starts a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.    This month's theme is Spring/Easter.

We are so thankful for our sponsors.....

Prize ~ £8.50 Gift Certificate


Prize ~ 3 Digital Stamps

For the challenge, I created a card....isn't it cute?

I used Paper Shelter's Spring Elves file.  I planned my project in my Silhouette software.  I created a print n cut for the image, flower heads, and sentiment.   I printed the images on Gina K's Luxury White cardstock.  I love how vibrant the colors are on this cardstock.  The sentiment was colored with Copies R02, R11 and R14.  

I layered the images on Bazzil Icy Mint cardstock, that I lightly inked the edges of with Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass ink.  Then, I used a few grey Copics to ground the image a bit.  

I added some Spectrum Noir glitter pen to the flowers, and some white signo gel pen to the pink flowers and the wheelbarrow for some added interest. 

I couldn't leave the image flat...so I popped the flowers up on foam squares.  

I finished the inside of the card with a few more flowers, with glitter pen, to match the front.

Crafty Girls Blog Challenge

 Happy Wednesday!  

It's time for a challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner.    This challenge's theme is Add A Flower.  Our wonderful sponsor is Beccy's Place

I used Beccy's Sunflower/Gerber image.  

I placed the image in my Silhouette software and added a sentiment underneath vertically.  

I colored the image with my Copic markers.  I cut the panel with a Simon Says Stamps die and layered it on MFT Pink Lemonade and Raspberry cardstock, from my stash. 

I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkles Glitter Pen to the flower for some added interest.  

I added a blank panel on the inside for a personal message for the recipient.
