Caught a Bug???

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for another Delightful Thursday.  My project includes the Bee Better image from 
Digital Delights by Louby Loo.


I've used Copic Markers to color the image.  The flower was made using flower punches and the Martha Stewart branch punch.  The papers are Doodlebug Design and the gems are from Queen&Co.

  If you haven't become a follower, it only takes a minute and I'd love to have you follow my journey.  You can also sign up for email notices when there's a new post.

I'm so glad you took the time to visit my blog.

Whatever Floats Your Boat

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn to post for the Digi My World design team blog.
This cutie is from the Tubing Fun Hillary set.


This set has lots of fun summer images and there are two more sets featuring different little girls.
Tubing Fun (Hillary)

I used Copics to color Hillary printed on Cryogen paper (love the sparkle) and Doodlebug Designs patterned paper.  The candies are Queen&Co.
Jaded Blossom:  Card Mat Dies, Dimensional Banner Dies, Spring Dies 2 and the sentiment is from the Happy Summer Stamp set.

We're having a Design Team call.  If you love coloring fun digital images, why not apply?
 You can read about it HERE.

Cut It Up Challenge #71 Mist-y


Hi Crafty Friends,
Challenge #71 is up at Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  Along with a die cut, this challenge requires the use of some type of spray mist.  Here's my card:


I have to admit, I'm not very successful using spray mists.  No matter what technique I use, I get blobs!!!  So, I found this specialty paper by Heidi Swapp which has a resist element to it.  I used the random dots piece, sprayed it with Shimmerz Spritz then wiped off the mist that had beaded up and what was left was spray mist on the dots (because that part of the paper didn't resist) - woohoo!  I also used the Arched Card Base from SVG Cutting Files and a flower from Silhouette Online store.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's "So Many Birthdays" set.  I finished with a few gems and some Wink of Stella Brush glitter.  I must add that because of the resist quality of the paper, I had to use Staz-On ink for the sentiment.

Join in our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate from As Cute As a Button.
Remember, you must use a die cut (manual or machine) and, for this challenge, spray mist of some kind.

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's another Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
Today I am using two images from the Cruising Digital Stamp set.


Here's a look at the entire set.  I'll be sharing a few more images next month.
Cruising Digital Stamp set

I hand cut the flags and layered everything on a mat cut with the Card Mat dies from Jaded Blossom.  I added a twine bow and a few Queen&Co candies.  The image was colored using Copic Markers.

Believe in the Magic


Hi Crafty Friends,

There's a new release at Digital Delights by Louby Lou and the Delightful Thursday gals are showcasing the new images.  My image is Princess Simi.  


I added a sentiment from the Magical Winter Sentiment set.  The card is the Wavy Card Base from SVG Cutting Files.  Besides using Copic Markers to color the image, I also added lots of Wink of Stella brush glitter and some VersaMagic Chalk Ink.  I love this paper by Bella Blvd.

School's Out!!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today is my turn to post for the Digi My World design team blog.  I'm sharing one of the cute images from theSchool's Out Dolly set.  This set has four character images and lots of fun extras and can 
be purchased HERE


The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs - their paper is so adorable!  The stars and apple are Doodlebug Design stickers and the washi tape on the flag is also Doodlebug Designs.  I also used Jaded Blossom's card mat dies and flag dies.  Dolly is colored using Copic Markers and the tiny twine bow was tied on my bow maker that I got from Lisa Fish at A Mermaid's Crafts.

I'm so glad you stopped in today.

Huge Birthday Wishes and some great news to share


Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my card for today:

I made this card for two very special reasons.  First, a good friend just celebrated her birthday and I wanted her to have one of my handmade cards.  And, secondly, it's a DESIGN TEAM card for
Cut It Up Challenges!!!  That's right, I'm now a member of the 
Cut It Up Challenges design team - woohoo!  



Today kicks off Challenge #70 - Paper Piecing.  Along with a die cut, you must also include paper piecing within a stamped image.

I love Cut It Up Challenge Blog because, along with following the bi-weekly challenge theme, you must include a die cut,  cut with either a manual or electronic cutter.  Well, you know I love my Cuttlebug and metal dies AND my Silhouette and Cricut, so this is the perfect new team for me.  I'll be posting every other Friday.

For my first DT project, I used the Mini Tag Dies 2 and Tropical Dies from Jaded Blossom as my die cuts.  I've had this cling stamp in my stash for a long time (sorry, I don't have the packaging that says where it came from) so I colored it up with Copic Markers and paper pieced the balloons using Doodlebug Designs paper.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Go Wild set.  A few enamel dots, some twine and doodling and that's it.

I hope you'll visit Cut It Up Challenge Blog to meet the new designers and join in the crafty fun!

Mother's Day Daisy


Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for another Delightful Thursday for Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

I hope you'll come back Friday for another project and some exciting news!!

Splish Splash Susie


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today's Delightful Thursday project features a cute little image from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
She's Splish Splash Susie and I think I found the perfect Echo Park Paper to show her off.



I used Copic Markers to color the image.  I've also used Jaded Blossom's Treat Tag Die and Card Mat Dies.  I picked up the most amazing little tool from Lisa Fish (A Mermaid's Crafts).  It's a bow maker and it's just the right size to keep on my crafting desk.  You can find it in her Etsy shop
HERE.

I hope you'll visit the DT blog for even more projects featuring images from Digital Delights.

Hi Crafty Friends,

April Stamp Release.

We're celebrating all things OZ.  My project features the
FLYING MONKEYS - aren't they too cute?  I've colored them with Copic Markers.

I've also used the A2 Card Bag from SVG Cutting Files and the Emerald City card kit.
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Yellow Brick Road stamp set stamped on a JB Candy Wrap Die.  The candies are stamped from JB's Yellow Brick Road Candies set. The ribbon is my handmade crinkle ribbon.  The sequins are Doodlebug designs.



All images will be available in the store on FRIDAY.
