Last week Heather, at Lacy Sunshine, had offered a choice of 2 images for her 'Loyalty Program' digi. I chose 'Sheldon C. Turtle', such a cute Christmas image!
I used a snow pen on the furry parts of his hat that is supposed to puff up when heated, but it didn't work. So, rather than throw the image away and start over, I used Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel over it and now the white parts of his hat are all sparkly. I've had this paper stack for ages and decided it would be perfect for this image. Thank you, Heather, for this cute image.
paper: dk. blue card stock; patterned paper from my stash
Spellbinders Classic Ovals Lg.; Lacy Ovals
sentiment stamp: Heartfelt Creations,Balloon and Bicycle PreCut Set
seam binding, Prismacolor pencils, rhinestones, snowflake brad
These sweet victorian images are from LunaGirl Vintage Images. The frame is a shape in PSE, which I duplicated. I used the eye dropper to choose colors from the pictures for my background papers, added a text layer and reduced the opacity. I needed something to define the sentiment so I used a tag, using a blending mode, and erased around the edges to make it fit the sentiment. The color of the ribbon was changed to match the LO.
So now I hope you will join us with your fun, boy creations!
Hello friends! I was watching a video on making a telescopic card and decided I needed to try that.
Now, there are a few things about my card that I don't like. For one, I added the circle while it was open and didn't notice that the sentiment was a bit wonky. And IRL those hearts look O.K. but in the pic, not so much! But I did enjoy the process of making the telescopic card; I think there will be some more in my future. Thanks Barb for a great video!
Lacy Sunshine has a fun challenge called 'Save The Flowerpot Pretties'. You'll find the info here.
She's been colored with Prisma color Pencils and then I created a frame with Spellbinders Floral Ovals. The blue paper is from the DCWV Pocket full of Posies Stack. Some lace, ribbon and a pearl completed the card.
Heather Valentin from Lacy Sunshine has created some amazing new images, HobGobbis! They are so much fun to color and design with. This one is Tiny Eveninpuff HobGobbi.
I've colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. For the green stripe on the paper I used some red line tape and then covered it with green glitter. The image is on pop dots and the tag is from Heartfelt Creations.
Our children used to love Mother Goose rhymes. When I saw 'Miss Muffet' I knew she would be perfect for this weeks challenge. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and then scanned her back into Photoshop Elements. I then used the gradient tool to create the background.
The winner of this hop will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations,
you just need to email Emma Lou with "Winner of June Alumni Hop" in the
subject line. The hop will close on Friday June 27th at midnight.
Today I'm sharing my July calendar page. Originally, I was planning to do a patriotic theme but my thoughts kept going in a different direction and so I decided to follow my heart. This page is dedicated to our daughter, Wanita. Dec. 26, 1963 - July 2, 2013.
Each page has a pocket; this is the pull on the tag. I will show all of the tags next time.
There's an amusing little story connected to this picture. When I realized my printer was out of ink I put several small pics on a 4x6 in Photoshop and took it to WalMart to print. The saleslady took one look at this and said "This looks like a professional picture and I can't sell it to you." I was completely shocked! I tried to tell her that I took the picture, but she wasn't getting the picture, LOL! But when I know 100% that I am right, I stand my ground! And in the end, I got my picture. Whew, she had me going for a minute! (Maybe I should have been flattered that she thought it was a professional photo but I was a bit too upset to think about it.)
Hi, I'm so glad you stopped by. I am married to the love of my life for 47 years. We have 6 children; 3 girls, 3 boys. We have 8 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandson. I have always loved trying new crafts; everything from quilting to pottery. You name it, I've probably tried it, LOL! Recently I discovered card making blogs and it's taking me right back to where I started. Thanks to everyone who share their talents so freely so the rest of us can learn. And thanks again for taking the time to visit. Please leave a comment so I can visit you in return.
