Make A Wish

Make a wish 2013 full

This is not a hard card to make! All you have to do is 3 folds and 2 cuts and I have the pattern for you so you can make one. First things, our Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has started and as always it is ANYTHING GOES with a TWIST and the twist for this week is “YOUR FAVORITE THING”. How easy can that be? My favorite thing with this card is folds, silhouettes, sentiment and using the entire stamp set. To be honest I do not have one favorite thing… I love making cards so whatever I do I enjoy, and that’s the truth.

Our Sponsor for the month of August is The Besties, Sherri has created some fantastic images for you to win.


Make a wish 2013 open

Card is called Tri-Shutter Card/with full front and I do love that about this Tri-Shutter card, when it is folded the size is 6”by4” so it is easy to put in an envelope. The stamp set is from 100% proof and I used the entire stamp set. Stamp everything with versafine onyx black and set aside to make sure everything dried.  Added a ribbon and brads. The paper is from DCWV but I do not know what stack it is from.

You can click on the pattern and save as and you will have the pattern.

This is what the front looks like. Added a little ribbon, buttons and paper flowers with gems.

This is the inside of the card. I had to cut Gold labels 4 down to get it to fit but I think it is ok. Left open for a sentiment or a stamped message.

These are the copic markers I used to color her. This is the finish Rebecca.

I did something a little different this time, I used some prisma colored pencils after I color Rebecca with my copic markers. I wanted to see if that made any difference. The first one you can see I did not finish the sky but that is the one only colored with the copics. The second one is colored with both copics and pencils. I found that it was very easy to add the pencils and I found it more controlling in the tiny places to add more color. What do you think? I think it turned out really nice. You be honest.

All over again

All over again 2013

I received in the mail a package from Magnolia Surprise that I won. I had no idea what I was getting. I received 2 magnolia stamps and some paper. That was a big surprise to me. I just love the stamps one is called Tilda makes a blueberry blanket and the other one has no name on it but it looks like Tilda sitting and she is a pirate, so I will have to look her up and see what she is called. This is so awesome, I never win anything.. I’m here today to tell you about the Cards for Men Challenge and for our challenge #17 is all about MAKING A BIRTHDAY CARD AND MAKING IT FUNNY. The challenge starts today and ends Sept 2 2013. The sponsor is QKR Stampede and you can win 5 digital images. My image is called ALL TIED UP and you can find him here

All over again 2013  r

I’m not a funny kind of Birthday card person but I did think of several really cute sentiments that would work with this adorable bear but I can still stamp a Happy Birthday on the inside. These two sentiments are from ATC and I thought they where perfect with this guy and get my mind out of the gutter.

All over again 2013  l

The papers are from stampin up stack called just add cake and several layer from the stack.  There is not much to the card, I feel like I cheated, that is how easy it was. Add some orange and green metal dots.

All over again 2013  i

Used stampin up pinking hearts border for the edges. Left open for a stamped or written sentiment.

All over again m

Copic markers used to color the image. This is the close up.

All over again 2013  c

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your week end was wonderful and everyone is dry and away from the fires.

A day of joy

A day of joy 2013
We have started The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and  if is ANYTHING GOES and each week we always add a TWIST and for this week it is TO ADD MIX MEDIA to your card. I had so much fun making my card. I have so much mediums and I need to start using them. The stamp set is from 100% proof (never heard of the company) and my girlfriend Lee is the one the owns the set , she purchased the set awhile ago and let our friend Pam use it and Pam returned it to Lee at our stamp club and of course I seen it so I asked if I could take it home with me and Lee said “yes” because she is so sweet. So I will return it to her at stamp club. I love Silhouettes, I made two cards. You will see the other card for next weeks Twisted Thursday challenge.
Our sponsor for the month of August is My Besties, you can stop by and see the darling images Sherri has provided us! You can win 5 amazing images from The Besties.

Here I will tell you what medium I used, to get most of the mediums to stick I used versamark watermark stamp pad, also heat embossed to set most madiums,  Krylon gold leafing pen, visa inka gold color red, stampendous fran-tage champagne, gilded mica fragments, crushed glass glitter, Suze Weinberg’s ultra think embossing enamel colors red, white and clear. Distress ink color festive berries.
