Baby congratulations

I got some exciting news that one of my nieces is going to have a baby!  I made her this quick, but cute congratulations card with a free digi of a pacifier and fonts on my computer.

Christmas in July

Hi everyone.  I wanted to share a card I made for the Festive Friday challenge at the Outlawz.  I chose Christmas for my holiday.  What I wouldn't give for some July snow right now!

This is for the birds

Hi everyone.  I'm just trying to post some of the cards I've made but haven't posted about.  The following are all cards that feature birds.

going to the dogs

Hi everyone.  My post today is all about dogs!  First off the Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz this month has an image of a dog from Anne's Digital Art.  Anne is so generous with free images, and she does awesome pet portraits!  Here is the card I made using her dog image


Then I also recently joined a swap to make a card with a dog or cat on it.  I ended up making lots of cards for that.  Here are some of them




Then I made a couple of birthday cards with dogs.  One is colored and one is paper pieced.

Real Stamping

I just wanted to share a few cards I made recently.  These all use a stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  Real stamping this time - no digis!

Two challenges

The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is to use the spotlight technique.  This is simply where you pick a portion on the image you want to draw attention to in some way.  We are sponsored by Lemon Shortbread, and I used this cute Halloween Girl and chose to spotlight the Halloween elements in the image.  I first die cut that portion out, then colored it and put it back in it's place with a slight dimension.


I missed posting about the challenge last week because I was at my daughters awaiting the birth of my 2nd grandson Zack.  He was born Monday morning and weighed in at 8.5 pounds!  I am happy to report that both he and mom are doing great.  It was such fun being there.

Anyway, last week's challenge was to make a masculine card.  We were sponsored by Beccy's Place and Dr Digi's House Of Stamps.  I chose a silhouette image from the Splish Splash set at Beccy's Place.

My first card I printed the image and then cut it out with my Scan n Cut.  I water colored the background with color burst paints.  Once everything was dry I glued the image to the card and added some rain drops with some crystal lacquer.


When I saw the negative space left where the image was cut out, I wanted to use it too and I love how it turned out.

Paper Ala Mode is On The Move

The Paper Ala Mode challenge is a fun one this week - make a card with movement.  I always enjoy interactive cards.  I made a sliding pull card using this Chicken image from Toadstool Printables.  The paper for our challenge this week is from Art Wildflower Digi.  We each made a short video showing the movement on our cards too.


Here's the video so you can see how it pulls open.  Special thanks to my husband for demonstrating the card while I filmed.
