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.

Thanks for visiting!

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. I fussy cut the fish and made a small school to visit the mermaid. The background was a practice piece for underwater images, but it worked perfectly for this card. 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!

SoSS Stencil Challenge

I was so thrilled to see this challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stamps-S is for Stencils! I've had the stamp, the clip art, the stencil, all ready and waiting to put this idea together! Yeah, a year later and it's done-ha!

Here it is:


For Christmas, my hubby got me the PERFECT little compressor for my Copic markers. The stencil is from The Crafters Workshop and is a 6 x 6 size. I used R37 and a YR 27 for the flames, and Y08 for the internal flames and the sentiment box. B000 colored the sky.  I found the roller coaster on the internet somewhere (it was a while back). The sentiment is by Riley & Co., which besides being funny is also all too true! My friend Reva is complaining about hot flashes, so she'll get a big kick out of this card!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you've had a wonderful Holiday Season! Here is a card I made for you-



Isn't that little snow bunny mischievious? I wouldn't trust him with that pile of snow balls right beside him! You can find this image here. He was colored with Copics. I used Frantic Stamper Reverse Snowfall die and Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene die to make snow covered hills. The stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. and the grey snowflakes are Beistle Snowflake Confetti, at Amazon. The snowflakes came in white, grey, and really pretty iridescent pinky lavender.

I hope you enjoyed my card!
