For You

Hi Outlawz.  It's Wednesday and here is my card for this challenge.  I'm feeling a little under the weather this week with my annual autumn bout of bronchitis.  It's time for some medication.   I used Geeky from our sponsor for October, Polkadoodles.  Once again, I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo for the image.  The layer under the image is a Silhouette file.  I think the flowers are prima from years ago.


Supplies used:

Stampin Up yellow card stock for card base
Recollections black card stock
Stampin Up Tempting Turquoise card stock
Copic markers
Geeky (image)
Stampin Up die for sentiment
Tuesday Technique sentiment
Flowers from Prima
Want2scrap bling

Challenges entered: At least one flower AG AG

Kitty With Ornament

Hey Peeps!  This is my first card as a DT member for The Crafter's CafĂ©.  I am pleased and  happy to be working with this DT.  Come on over to the challenge blog and join in the fun this week.  There is a new challenge each Wednesday.  The theme for this week is to use a die cut or punch and the sponsor is Limited Runs.  This was the first I had heard of this company.  I checked them out and was pleasantly surprised at all the cute imatges.   My image is die cut with my Cameo.  As usual, I used the print and cut  feature to cut out this adorable kitten.  I chose this image because it looks like Christmas in  my house.  With three furry critters (see their picture at the bottom of my blog) in my house, this is a common site at Christmas time.  I colored Kitty with Copic markers and added some Glossy Accent on his ribbon and nose.  I used gold and red Wink of Stella glitter pens on the ornament.  Then I ran my gold leaf pen around the outside of the image offset.  I also used the Cameo to die cut the card base from Recollections red.  The dp is from Anna Griffin.  Pearls are from Want2Scrap.  Buttons are Crate Paper chipboard and the twine is from WRMK.

Morning Peeps!  The Sunday Release at DS4J has some really cute digis this week.  Hurry on over to the store to grab a few.  I used Peek-a-Boo for my card.  I just love it when toddlers do this.  Maybe it is a little bit of envy.

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The card base is Basic Grey from a few years ago.  The pink die cut was done with my Cameo.  Flowers are Prima.  The ribbon, of unknown origin, is a little piece I found in my ribbon box.

Word Art Wednesday Hebrews 11:16

Just a simple card this time for Word Art Wednesday.  I used an image from DS4J and merged the verse onto it using my Cameo.  Then I cut the sentiment circle and the Nested Starburst.  I used Copics on the image and added some Prima flowers from my stash.   The flower centers are brads I have had forever.  I used Stampin Up cardstock for the card base and first layer.
