Fussy & Fancy Challenge 63: New Baby

Good Morning to All,

I hope this day finds everyone having some fun, especially since it's friday! This week at Fussy and Fancy  it's all about the wee ones. I just love the sweet smell of little babies and all the cute snuggles and smiles. This is my wee card for New Baby.

This card also reminds me this month is my daughters birthday, wow it's really been 22 years. The Wee Ones card was created using card stock and printed paper from We R Memory Keepers " baby mine" boy line. Spellbinders for the scalloped square, edge punch from ek, ribbon from BoBunny and candy dots from Pebbles. The stamped image is " Monica With Pacifier " from House Mouse. The image is colored with Copic markers. Thanks for stopping by and visiting today at Fussy and Fancy. Now lets see your Wee creation.

R #70 Ribbons

Hi Crafty Friends,

Hope Friday found you doing well. We have been so busy at work with our office putting in a new computer program I lost track of time and forgot to post sorry it's posted so late. The challenge this week at Crafts 4 Eternity is "Ribbons"!!! I love ribbon, but I'm kind of challenged when it comes to using it. I hope you like this weeks design.

The stamped image is " Daisy" an Elisabeth Bell design stamp. This was colored with distress ink on cold press water color paper. The printed paper is some left over stash I had from Basic Grey and the flowers are prima that have been highlighted with stickles in star dust. The leaves are punched from an EK success punch. Hope you have fun creating. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!!

R #69 Spring

Good Morning Ladies,

  Well here it is, Friday again. This is such a fun challenge this week at crafts 4 eternity it's all about SPRING!!! I love this time of year with the beautiful flowers, warmer weather and lots of grilling on the BBQ. This is also a time when my husband and I enjoy going to the classic car shows. So without further ado here is my ode to spring. 

The image is a Magnolia colored with Copics and flower soft added to give some dimension to her flowers and flower basket. The printed paper is from My Minds eye and the edges were distressed and inked. The bow is made from a paper template and the Butterfly is a MS punch.

Fussy and Fancy DT Call " Three Favorites"

Well hello again for the second time today,

I have just recently decided to join the blogging world again and to try and toss my hat into the DT ring again.  I have been on DT previously and always had great fun and really miss the fellowship. I now work part time and I am able to give more time to the craft I love. I have been designing for about 4 years and teaching the Copic Marker technique for the last 2 years at a couple of our towns LSS. This is for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. They have asked for our 3 favorite creations, so since I have only restarted blogging there are so few to chose from. These were all colored with Copic markers, but I also color with distress inks and colored pencils with gamsol. Here are my submissions, wish me luck.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!!

This card also contains Bazzill Brown and Flamingo Card stock, Kaiser Craft pearls, Stitching by machine, ( I know it is not straight, I am horrible at sewing sorry), Prima Flowers, the flourishes are done with a sizzix die and this cute little spring image is a Digital Stamp " Little Rapunzel" from Elisabeth Bell Designs.

Wee Silver Fairy of Gossamer and Gold

Good Sunday afternoon fellow crafters,

It feels so good to be back in the crafting game again. It has been over a year since I have done anything just for fun and not for teaching. So I have been surfing the net and sadly find I really need to update my blog. I was disappointed to see many of my favorite card challenges are no longer open. I did however, find some amazing new ones. This card is for two of these new challenges for me. The first is Fussy and Fancy and of course the theme is "Fairies", the second is Papertake Weekly Challenge with a theme of "Anything Goes".

This gorgeous beauty was created with the Silver Fairy Digital Stamp from Wee Stamps. I had to visit youtube to figure out how to color her, I found a great tutorial by Suzzane Dean, so thank you so much to her for the free lesson it was of great help. I used a combination of Blues and Blue/Green Copic Markers to create the look of gossamer in her clothing this is a coloring technique where you use one color of Copic marker to push out the other color. The cloud background was made with the Copic airbrush technique. The paper edges were distressed with Vintage Photo ink by Ranger. I used a very lovely paper stack from Prima called the "Madeline Collection" the card stock is Lagoon, Brown and Natural from Bazzill. The Florals and pearls are also all from Prima. The real special highlight on the card is the glitter, I used three different items for this, star dust stickler, Gary's fine glitter with glossy accents and a Sakura Star Dust Pen. Here is a close up to get a better View of the glitter.

Thank you so much for visiting and have a great week.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!!
