Kitty Bee February Spotlight post

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and I've made a card with the cute Ram image from the Chinese Zodiac collection from the Kitty Bee Etsy store-

I did make this an Aries card for a friend of mine who's really into astrology. I thought it would be cool to make an actual copy of the constellation (drew it freehand) using the leftover stars from the Spellbinders Star Circles die. The image was colored with Copics, and the sentiment square was made using Micosoft Word, and making a dark blue fill of the text box with white letters. The background was so fun to make, using masking fluid and black and blue Brusho's.

SoSS K is for Kiss Challenge!

I knew what I was going to make for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers K is for Kiss challenge-it was just finding time to make it and get it posted. So TA-DA, here it is:

I printed the sentiments out on the computer, and put them where they need to go. The front ones I doodled around the edges with a black scrapbooking marker. The lips are cut with my Cricut Indie Art cartridge. I noticed when I inserted the pictures I didn't get the lips glued very well, so I will fix that when I give this to my husband sometime in his lunchbox, just for the heck of it. He has a great sense of humor so he'll get a kick out of this!

Kitty Bee Designs Valentine Challenge

Hello! The challenge at Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge is Valentines/love!

Here is my DT project-

The background paper was made by inking a plain white cardstock with Rangers Distress ink (Worn Lipstick). I then put a heart stencil over the paper and sprayed plain water over it. After blotting the stencil, I removed it and it left the hearts you see. The reverse side of the paper is the top 2/3 rd's of the card. I wanted to add more black so I randomly outlined hearts on the papers. The heart die was cut out of the same paper I made. I wish I had used some pearl in the water to give some glimmer to the paper! Next time.

Here is a list of materials I used:
  1. Image: Julia Spiri-The Teddy and the gift, colored with Copics.
  2. Dies: My Favorite Things Rounded Rectangles, Spellbinders Swirly Heart, Fiskars Tag punch.
  3. Ribbon: 360 Celebrate (Michaels).
  4. Stencil: Bo-Bunny hearts (part of 4 pack)
  5. Ink: Versafine Onyx Ink, Rangers Worn Lipstick. Creative Memories black pen. 
  6. Stamp: Happy Days set by Cardz TV.
