DT Spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs

Hello! Today is my spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs, and I'm here with a Lady Bug thank you card that is great for any occasion!

I used the Ladybug from Kitty Bee Designs, printed it off with a toner copier, and used a heat laminator to red foil the outline (here is a great tutorial for this)-

I used Copics to color the ladybug, and adhered her to the cross stitched circle by Lawn Fawn. The red gingham paper is Creative Memories (along with the ladybug stickers) I've had for years! The ribbon is Offray (Jo-Anns), and the thank you deboss die cut is Spellbinders Sentiments 6 using Versafine Onyx ink.

Thank you for visiting!

SoSS I is for Inappropriate

It has been far too long that I've played in any challenges. So when I saw the theme at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers I knew I had to play!

I absolutely love their challenges, and here is my project-

and then the inappropriateness (if you don't like profanity, please go no further)

I'm going to send this card to my brother so he can forward it on to his boss at work. She is such a twit!

Here are the materials I used to make this card:
  1. Stamps: Outside sentiment, Helen & Alice (Funny Bones by Riley & Co.), inside sentiment (Snarky Stamps for Paper Issues.) Versafine Onyx ink.
  2. Paper: Theresa Collins Memorabilia 6x6 pad, grey, teal cardstock (stash).
  3. Ribbon: American Crafts.
  4. Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug

Kitty Bee Designs Challenge #77-All About Animals

Welcome! The challenge at Kitty Bee Designs today is All About Animals and our sponsor is Aurora Wings!

Here is my project-

I chose this adorable Christmas Pup from Aurora Wings for my card. I used Copics to color him (E01, E33 E34, E51 for pup, R35, R43, R46 for the hat & candy cane) and chose a very simple design to show how cute he is! The background paper is from Papermania Forever Friends Christmas Kraft Notes, and I cut an extra stocking from the remnants to insert in the center. And since I'm on a mission to use up my scraps, the sentiment cardstock is from my stash. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. and stamped with Versamark Onyx ink. I also used American Crafts red & white twine to cover up a dotted line that the stockings hang from.

Thanks for visiting!

For You Cow

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and I would like to share this card with you!

The background paper is some old Creative Memories that I'm trying to use up! In fact, I'm trying to make it a mission of mine to use up my stash instead of buying new. The paper is two sided-the solid green and the flowered side, which makes it easy to use because it already coordinates. The image is Kitty Bee's For You Cow, which I colored with my Copics. The sentiment was cut with MFT's fishtail banner die, and Unity Stamp Co. (Summer Girl set) was used along with Versafine Onyx ink. The flower is from my stash (it was light yellow and I colored it with Copics) as is the button I added for the center.

Thank you for joining me!

Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight post-June

Hello! Today I'm sharing with you a masculine birthday card using the Hello Pup from Kitty Bee Designs!

I colored the image with Copics, and used My Favorite Things Dies (Stitched Squares, Stitched circles) to cut out the sentiment (Avery Elle, Thanks a Bunch set) and image. I have no idea who made the large plaid paper because it's been in my stash forever! The sand cardstock is Bazzill, dark grey is Recollections, light grey is DCWV Black Currant stack. I also added a small bit of glue to the dog tag and used gold decofoil to make the tag nice and shiny. I didn't add any additional embellishments because guys really don't care about those things-thank goodness. Nice & Simple!

Thanks for visiting.

V is for Vroom!

At  Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, the challenge is V for Vroom! Make a project with two or four wheels, and here is my project:

I wanted to do something different, so I chose an easel card. There are a ton of tutorials out there if you've never made one. Here's the process I did:

  1. Make easel card. I used Wild Asparagus cardstock.
  2.  I covered the easel portion with the blue polka dot paper, and added clouds from the Cricut Groovy Times cartridge. The motorcycle is also on the same cartridge, and this was cut @ 2 3/4" out of scrap paper.
  3. The easel "stop" I made by stamping the road from Papertrey Inks School Time set onto black cardstock, and embossing in white. Use pop dots to elevate the road.
  4. Sentiment is from my OLD Creative Memories Mod collection, cut in half and positioned on right hand side of card.
It's kinda fun making a different type of card, don't you agree?
