121201 - December Freebie At Outlawz - Sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps (thanks Betty)

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited about this challenge!  Our members at Outlawz told us that they really liked the Progressive Monthly Challenge that we used to do....So Guess what everyone....IT IS BACK!!!

We are so very fortunate as well in this challenge to kick it off with a fantastic image from Simply Betty Stamps!  It is called Tangled Wednesday and You can buy her in the kit OR get it free at Outlawz challenges.  Since coming onto the Design Team at Outlawz I never would have tried an image like this because my glasses can never give me the vision I so long for back in my 30s when I didn't need glasses LOL so parts of this image were very tiny for my eyes.  However when Betty sent this image to me...I said BRING IT LOL.  I am so very happy how it turned out!  I cant wait to see how you create your!

The Copic Markers I used were;

Face E000,00,21,11,04,R20
Hair B41, C5,7,9, 100
    Red R35,37,59
    Green G24,94,99
Shoes/Star/Scarf BG000,01,45,49
Eyes G24,94,99
Lights YR18,23 YG11,21, V17

Dec 1-The Stamping Boutique-Pocket Patootie Monkey Digi

I loved our challenge this week!  It is all about black and white!  The image can be found at our sponsor this week (The Stamping Boutique) Pocket Patootie Monkey Digital Stamp.  I cant believe how many Copic's I used to make this black and white card!  

Monkey - W00, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8
Pocket - N0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
Banana - C00, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
Vine and Leaves - T0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I water-coloured the background with a grey paint.  And then I had no idea how many of my stickles actually worked with this.  I used Black Diamond, Icicle, Star Dust, Frosted Lace, and Silver!

I was a bit unique this time with the folds of my card (basically because I scored on the wrong line LOL - shhhhhh I was tired LOL).  So that bow on the side actually ties to hold that flap at the bottom shut.  The I go Bananas this time of the year pulls down to then open up the Pocket Patootie Monkey to reveal the sentiment inside which is Happy Birthday!  I had a party to go to this afternoon and I just love the gal it was for and thought she would like the card.  We partnered it up with a black and white bag with her gift inside.  My daughter paired this with a lime green paper so of course I made the envelope with green and lime green polka dots to match the paper (what can I say...I am a bit OCD when it comes to this stuff).

Baby's Almost Here!

My first commissioned card!  And what a beauty it is!  I got this image from Make It Crafty called Sophie Expecting Baby!

I didn't really have any baby related embellishments - so when you don't have - CREATE! LOL.  So I hand drew the Baby Soothers then coloured them with Copic Markers - added ribbon and VOILA!

I love how it turned out - I hope the buyer also likes the card just as much!

Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 04, R20

Antonetta's Pink Bridal Dress!

The Digi that I used for this card is Lizabeth Wedding Bliss.

This is a card that I made for my co-worker/friend!  She is finally getting married to her man in a very simple ceremony with her family on December 15th!  Although they have been living together for quite some time, it was the reason she did not get a white dress...she went with a pink one instead!  I hope I matched the colour to the same pink she has!  I know she will be delighted to get her card at our team X-Mas party!

The copic colours that I used were;

Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 04, R20
Hair - E44, 47, 49
Eyes - E44, 47, 49, Y17
Dress/Veil - R00,  RV11,  BV20
Flowers - R35, 37, 56
                G24, 28, 29
Shadow - C00, 0, 1, 2, 3

141117-ThanksGiving-ADU-A Cuddle Makes it All Better

Hi Everyone!

Glad you all popped in to see my Challenge Card for November 17th for The Outlawz Monday Greeting Challenge.  This week it is all about ThanksGiving!

I loved the image from All Dressed Up called A Cuddle Makes it All Better.  Really the sentiment is so true!  This image can be used so many ways so truly is versatile!  This time I used it in what I feel are Thanksgiving colours - Lots of Copic Markers in the E family (which I totally never do LOL).  Just that pop of teal on her shirt and puppies bow I felt was great.  The Copic Markers I used for this image are;

Skin E000, 00, 21, 11, 04, R20
Hair E44, 47, 49
Shirt BG32, 15, 09
Skirt E97, 07, 09
Dog E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47
Dog Bow BG32, 15, 09

Hiya Everyone!

Thanks for joining me for another creation!

This week our theme at Outlawz is Create a Card for the Troops.  The image was created by Beansie Doodles - Jumpin Jelly Bean.

This was another hard challenge for me because I have never made a card for a Veteran or Active Armed Forces person.  All I could think of was how happy the old lady was to be welcoming her son or daughter or husband (OK really the old woman can be a cougar LOL).  Then when putting my project together I remembered that this was supposed to be a card that goes to an active troop member.

I mimicked the side like medals that soldiers would wear on their formal uniform.  The bling is Martha Stewart Jewels.  The copic markers that I used are;

Skin -  E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4
Dress - YG95, YG99
Slippers - YG95, YG99, W1, W3, W5, W7
Frill - YG00, YG01, YG95
Walker - W1, W3, W5
Tennis Balls on Walker - YG00, YG01, YG06

This was such a fun card to make!  I actually went the traditional white polar bear first then remembered we were doing the theme of fall colours!  I just couldn't get the white polar bear to work with the fall back to the drawing board and went with a brown grizzly bear!

The Digi you can find at Sweet and Sassy - Self Conscious Paulie.

I used the grass border Sizzix then I used Stampin Up - Ever Green tree along with one purchased from Michaels (sorry don't know who the designer of that stamp is).  I double mounted this onto Deep Green card and Rust coloured paper.

The Copic Markers that I used for this project are;

The Bear - E47, E49, E57
The Tongue - R20
The Ears - R30
The Scarf - E22, E35, E57, E09 along with Y15, Y19, YR04, YR09
