A Sweet Get Well



Wow, can you believe it is Thursday, already? Whoo Hoo Almost Friday! Yay! Anyway, as you know, (if you don't you should be keeping up with the goings on over at Catch The Bug!), today is Oldie But A Goodie Thursday at Catch The Bug. This means the design team is having a blast showing off those older images from Bugaboo Stamps and bringing them back - right in your face, to grab your attention! Stop by and see what the other design team members have to show you, too, at Catch The Bug!

My card for today uses the image, Boy Bear, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers, I used a fun design, this time, with layers of 3 banners.  I think it turned out really cute. The card was embellished with silver pearls. I also added two strips of yellow washi tape, to add an extra splash of color. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.

Have a Vampyrific Halloween




Here I am, back, again, to tell you about a new challenge over at Open Mind Crafting.  We have a fun one for you, perfect for this time of year! Our theme is Halloween or dressing up.  Surely you have some Halloween makes to show off, right?  Come on over to Open Minded Crafting for Your Chance to win prizes from these great sponsors:

















My card uses the image, Vampyre Witch, from Scrapper's Delights, colored with a mix of Promarkers and Copics - But mostly Promarkers. I wish you coud see the shading real well in the pic, because I am pretty darn proud of it, being its my first decent attempt at shading with Copics. Unfortunately. it doesn't show well in the pic because of the lighting and color choice.  but, trust me! I did well for a first real attempt LOL!  All papers used are from my stash. I have embellisehd the card with handmade pearls.  Oh, Oh.... I have a fun tip for you on making your own pearls.  You can make pearls in lots of colors, very inexpensively, buy buying plastic pony beads in bulk and melting them down in your oven.  I made these black pearls/enamel dots myself, by melting down black pony beads in the over at 250 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Make sure you line your baking sheet with waxed paper and let the pearls cool for a few minutes before handling. Then they will slide right off the wax paper. Be careful when melting and monitor your pearls as different ones seem to melt at different rates of time.


This card if for my best male friend, for Halloween, who always appreciates my cards.  Hope he loves it!
