{IT} Summer Fun

Hi, it's me again! I decided to try a layout but digitally...Why? Because I ran out of ink in my printer!!!  

Here it is, my first layout and I created this using a free template from 2 Paws designs. These are my kids having way too much fun in the splash pad. Boy how I wished I could join them too...

This is for the June Progressive Challenge using Poolside Penguin.

{FTHS} Wishing a Super DAD a Super Birthday

 Hello everybody and happy Monday! Hope you had a fab one! Ours was a very HOT one today and it was burning HOT...

Here's my card for the FTHS - Progressive Challenge this month. You get this image for free if you played last month.

Super Birdbrain was colored with prismacolored pencils and baby oil.  I used my chevron Sizzix e/f and used the out of the box technique for the cape. 

Sketch comes from this week's i{heart} sketch . Sqaure shape which I turned into an A2 card.

{SPD} Ready, Set, Blow!

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! We're already in the middle of the week! I wanted to play with my newly acquired stamps from Sugar Pea Designs aka Super Cute!

Here is my card

I used the Moroccan stencil and the orange from the Colorbox ink Cat's eyes to create my background. I was having BIG trouble to decide on the background papers since I ended coloring this cutie in another color palette. But I love what I did!

This cutie dragon is one of my faves from the Sugar Pea Designs collection! You can find him here. He was colored with prisma pencils and baby oil and fussy cut. He was popped on some swirled embossed paper (that I ran in my cuttlebug) and matted with chocolate cs.

Paper is from an old Cosmo Cricket pad (more than 2 years hehe) and here's a closeup. I shouldn't forget to mention that I was inspired to color using Mary's card. Love her coloring skills! Hiya Mary!

{SPD} Rain or Shine, You're a friend of mine

Hello, hello my friends! Happy Father's Day to all dads, grandpas, uncles out there and I do hope you have a fab weather to celebrate this! We surely do have some nice, sunny day and we've got some awesome plans ahead for our family. Yipppee!!!

 I finally got a chance to sit down and color this cutie for the SPD sketch this time. This set is SO SO versatile too! It can be used for encouragement, sympathy cards etc.

She is colored with prisma pencils and gamsol. Her umbrella has been paper pieced and I added a sky background before mounting it on some kraft and red cs. The papers are from the MME pad. I made a banner and stamped the sentiment on it. I also fussy cut the frog and glued it partially onto the banner. He sure was a bit tricky to fussy cut but I think I nailed it hehe.

Here is a close up 

Sugar Pea Designs stamps are SO SO cute and I love the quality of their stamps. I also love how the stamps take up the inks really well as compared to others. By the way, this is my own personal info since I'm not part of the SPD team. They're also having a 25% sale by the end of summer!!! So hurry up and stock up!

Have a Crabby Happy Birthday Dad

Hello again, this is for the Whimsie Doodles May monthly challenge which was to use an animal.

Here is my card

I have used the crab from the Shell A Bration set. A quick and simple card that I have cut with my spellbinders circle and my Cricut for the scallops circle, embossed the mat, colored the image and fussy cut. Used the ribbon for my sentiment and my dad loved eating crabs! I'm sure he would have loved this one lol.

{SB} Party!

Hello and TGIF!!! Yay!!! I really wish I had more time to play in with my favorite companies but sometimes, work takes over... 

Here's my card for the one layer theme for Stampin Bella this week.

I NEVER did this before and I kinda like it! I first cut down a circle and glued it down on my base. Inked the background stamp and stamped on the base. I then removed the glued circle and stamped my image. She is Uptown Marcella goes to a Masquerade and she was colored with prisma pencils and baby oil. The stars and party stamps come from a Simon Says Stamp set. To finish the card, I doodled around the circle border.

{HB} Daddy's Little Girl

Hello friends! It's been almost a week since I last posted here. I was SO sick and my kids too that I couldn't craft at all. I can now put this behind me and I'm hoping to craft more soon. Here is my card that I was supposed to make for the DT Hobbybook Challenge. The theme is for dad or a male creation.

I colored Too Cute with my prisma and baby oil and fussy cut her. Guess I want a bit overboard with her eye shadows lol. Sentiment is my own handwriting.

Hope you will play and visit my fellow team mates for more inspiration.

{DGDT} Summer

Hello everybody and Happy Saturday! What are your plans for this weekend? We will have to use plenty of sunscreen today since it will be nice and sunny. Yippee!!! We have been waiting too long for this kind of weather especially after a rude, long winter...

Today is another monthly challenge over at the Doodle Garden blog and our theme is Summer. I chose to color Beach Day with my trusty prismas and gamsol. A very quick and layered card perfect for summer! My sketch comes from Try Stampin on Tuesday.

Toodles now,

{SPD} Dad

Hi and Happy Friday! Sorry it's a late post but with sick people in the house, it's just not easy to create. This is for my weekly post over at Doodle Garden and I have used Daddy's Helper - Little Boy

 He is colored with my trusty prisma pencils and gamsol. The banner was cut with my cricut using Princess Party cartridge. I also used my eyelet setter for the white diamond eyelets in the banner. The word "Dad" has been doodled with my white gel pen. Paper is from American Crafts, twine and button are from stash.

{SPD} Hare's to you Dad

 Hello, it's me again. This time it's to celebrate Father's Day that's coming around the corner fast! I was SO lucky I had won this amazing gift certificate from Sugar Pea Designs last month but little did I know that I would have SO much so much difficulty in choosing the stamp sets since they were all SO SO cute...Do you the pattern here ;-)

Here is my card

This cute papa bunny is comes from this darling set, One Hoppy Family. I just adore that it comes with the whole bunny family and the sentiments. I can think of many, many cards that can be done with this one single set.

The papa bunny was colored with prismacolors and baby oil and matted onto some chocolate cs. I went with a clean look here but still layered my mats. I just love this style where I didn't go with too many embellishments this time. Dps is from a single double-sided American Crafts paper.

I don't usually do the insides but this time, I just couldn't help myself in doing so.

My sketch comes from the Mojo Monday blog.
Hope you like it and seeyou next time.

You're a Star

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today is another challenge at AudSentiments and our theme is "Any sentiment for a Guy". My kids and I have been sick with a cold since Saturday and boy, it sure beats the creativity....

The funky rock star is Johnny Sing and I have colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sparkly paper is from a Martha Stewart love paper pack and the yellow dotted one is from a We R Memory pack. The mat used a star embossing folder. This card can be used for a small boy or even for a dad.
