My Uncle bobo

Hello everyone!  TGIF!  Hope you all had a great week!  I didn't get much crafting done but I'm sure hoping that I will be able too this weekend!

Today I'm here to share with you my latest make with the new release image from Sandra Caldwell.  It's called Uncle Bobo and you can find it in the store here.

I have been having fun in a book that I purchased from Dollartree.  I'm doing blackout poetry.  And while I'm doing this I also want to have added interest to that book and that is being done right now with this great image.

I cut out some circles using what I had around me (I was away crafting for the weekend with my friend Erin when I made this).

I sprayed the page with black pearlized homemade spray.  The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  The sentiment was part of the stuff that I cut out of magazines.

Here is the closer look at the image.

Steampunk Silly

Hello everyone!  I'm hosting a challenge over at Sandra Caldwell FB page it's all about Steampunk!  And she put 6 yes 6 images for sale at 1/2 off!!!  Including 2 new release!!!

I have made a few videos that will be airing in the following days but one is on today.  I made a JOOTB (journaling out of the box) here is the video if you want to see that one.  This shows me using the gorgeous Bearly a Steampunk that you can find here.
And here are 2 cards that I made.  There were some birthdays coming up and even if I didn't use birthday sentiments I thought they were perfect for those b-day.

The 1st one is using a digi that Sandra created for this challenge.  She offered it to me the day that my baby Max passed.  I told her how much it meant to see this kitty since I had just lost mine.  Sandra gave me the biggest surprise of all by naming the digi after my baby!  So here is Steampunk Kitty Max.  I colored him like my tabby kitty.  And I'm giving this card to my oldest son for his birthday next week.  He loves cats and I'm sure that this will mean a lot to him as well.
The paper that I used for this make is from Bobunny I think.  I'm losing track of my papers lol.  I used a sentiment that I thought was quite fitting with this little guy and I fussy cut the image and the sentiment.  The image was colored with my copics as well as some coloring pencils and Chameleon pens.

Here is the 2nd card that I made this time using Full body Steampunk hippo that you can find here.
The papers that I used for this card are from a pack of scraps from AC Moores and some scraps from my desk.  I also added a sentiment found online.  I fussy cut the image and it was colored with my new Chameleon pens.  I really love those pens.  I added some wood gears to finish it off.  Since there were 2 corners that felt blank I added some stamping for those.

I'm entering those cards in the following challenges:

  1. Alphabet challenge blog - D is for Decoupage
  2. jw scrap shack - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - Feminine card or anything goes - ok you might not believe me but the hippo card was for an amazing friend the godmother of my oldest son.  I thought she would love the sentiment!  And she did :)  So it was for a women.
  4. 2craftycrittercrazies - Anything goes with a critter
  5. Shopping our stash - Back to basic fussy cut - did that for both cards.
Hope you have a great weekend!  Here the weather is dreary but at least I will be able to craft!!!  Miss it!!!

Owl be Elvis

Hello everyone!  It's FRIDAY!!!  WOOOHOOO I'm so very happy about that!  I'm very much looking forward to crafting this weekend!!!  Hopefully LOTS of it.

Today I'm here to share with you a brand new image from Sandra Caldwell that you can find in the shop here on Etsy.  The one that I used is called Owl be Elvis

To make this card I used some papers from my stash (got lots and didn't mark what it was down).  The sentiment was stamped using small alphabet stamps.  I put the little owl on a wobble so that he shakes shakes shake :)  The image itself was colored with my Chameleon pens.  Still learning how to use them!

I always have trouble making masculine cards but I think this one came out pretty good!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  2. The sisterhood of crafters  - the letter "b" - bird, birthday and bubbles on the paper!
  3. The crafty addicts - Use a die cut/ anything goes - so anything goes here...
  4. 2 crafty critter crazies - anything goes with a critter on it
  5. Shopping our stash - back to basic do fussy cutting, that's what I did for the owl as well as for the sentiment.
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great Friday!!!

Hello everyone!  There's a brand new challenge over at The East Wind and it's perfect for this time of year (with Mother's day in North America).  So the challenge is all about Mother's or Women.  So perfect time to use the wonderful freebie that Unky drew for those that are registered to the newsletter!

I made a video of my process of playing in my alphabet book.
For this if you don't want to watch the video I used some neocolor crayons.  I had so much fun using them and should really use them more often!!!

The image was colored with my copics and then I fussy cut it out.  The sentiment was found online.  I put it on a word document and then printed it out.  I did some doodling and this is really rare for me, but I loved how it turned out!
