Hello! Today is the start of a new challenge at Aloha Fridays, and our wonderful sponsors are-


 and

The challenge for the next two weeks are Kiddy Cards! Here is my project-





Isn't this image from Fred, She Said just adorable? This is Halloween Rosey, and she isn't scary at all! Most kids love dogs, so I thought she was great for a Halloween card for my neice (Her dog is exactly like Rosey). The polka dot paper is by Best Creations, and the solid paper I found in my scrap stash. I added green & orange sequins for a little sparkle, and the sentiment is from the Broom Riders set from Technique Tuesday.

  1. Background and main image-Bathing Beauties by Graphics 45.
  2. Lace-stash.
  3. Brown border-stash (I keep items like this in a plastic storage box for future use).

Kitty Bee Designs-Spotlight August

Hello! Today I want to share with you this adorable image, Happy Birthday Kitty, from Kitty Bee Designs-




The whole theme of the card came from this spotted paper from GCD 6 x 6 pack called Sunkissed. I made spots on the icing to resemble sprinkles, and made the hat spotted with Copic markers. The image was cut out with MFT Stitched Square dies, and I used my Cricut to make the balloons and circle for the sentiment. The sentiment design is from the Cricut Artiste stamps, and the Happy Birthday is from Avery Elle's Thanks a Bunch set.

I always need birthday cards, so this is a great addition to my stash.

Here is one of my favorite projects from being a DT member at Kitty Bee Designs-


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.

Here is my mermaid from Sasayaki Glitter-




I LOVE teal-it's one of my favorite colors! So this color challenge was easy for me. A few notes about this card-the fish stamp actually is a thought bubble with the fish in it.

Here are the rest of the materials I used:
  1. Image: Mermaid (Sasayaki Glitter), colored with Copics.
  2. Stamp: fish (If Cats Could Talk, Taylored Expressions).
  3. Dies: sentiment (Little B Sentiments), inside/outside stitched circle (Taylored Expressions.

Happy July 4th!


Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project for you!



This card features Ty the Tiger, and you can find him here at the Kitty Bee Etsy Store. I had used my image with foil and a laminator, and after the image outline came out beautifully silvered, I had another Ty to foil! I put a thorough but thin coat of glue stick on a piece of black cardstock, ran it through the laminator again, and had a solid silver kitty with black outline. I fussy cut him out and added a Cricut cut hat for his 4th of July celebration. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions (God Bless America stamp), and I added the stars from the hat under the sentiment. I used Color Box inks, Neenah Solar White cardstock, along with red, blue cardstock from Michaels.

Have a fun and safe 4th of July!

You are something special

Hello! Today is the start of the Aloha Friday Challenge For The Guys- so get busy and enter those masculine cards to win digi's from our sponsors-

and



Here is my project:




This beaver is simply adorable, and I used the sentiment that came with the digi for a Father's Day card for my father-in-law. This image (colored with Copics) and sentiment is from Every Day Animals from Just Me Digital Stamps. I used a Taylored Expressions inside/outside stitched circle on my printed panel, and added a background panel I made with Distress Oxide inks and a Cricut mountain border. I also cut the "dam" logs with my Cricut, and I hope it looks like the stacked logs that beavers cut down to make the dams.

Thanks for stopping by!
