Biker Babe Birthday Blast

Once again I've made a card for one of my co-workers.  She and her husband do the Harley Davidson thing.  LOL  I make that sound like it's so cute...really, it's so cool!  ;)  For this card I decided to still keep it girlie for her.  I found this fun Betty Boop image free online.  I added the sentiment.  I made some fun stick pins and added a "charm" that says "Celebrate".  I added one rose and some gems.  I wanted a little more texture so I added some cheese cloth.  Not sure if you can see them, but, I also added some "tickets" from a punch I have that I punched some map from.

Playing With Shells

Last night I wasn't feeling well...so, I figured instead of going out with friends I'd stay home in my craft room.  I looked up some fun new ideas and found these cool necklaces and a neat wind chime all made using shells.  I'm not sure where they came from, but I have all of these bigger shells I can't really use on my cards since they are so heavy...so I wanted to do something with them.  Here is what I made.

This was my first thing...  I decided to make a necklace that represents BSU's (Boise State University) Football Team...  I had to drill a hole into the shell, actually, I had to do that with all of the shells I played with.  I used a black sharpie and wrote BSU, created the "charm" to dangle added gems, went over the letters with clear nail polish and then added a football bead and a bow.



This next necklace I made I used a larger shell.  The butterfly I found at a garage sale.  I added the blue and gold to the wings then panted over that using a glittery nail polish.  I added beads and a chain.



This last one took a bit longer, there were a lot of holes I had to drill, plus using twine instead of metal...not fun!  LOL  I think this one is pretty self explanatory...Lots of shells, twine and some beads.  I sort of want to decorate the big shell...just not sure how I want to...any ideas?

Starfish Kisses

Tonight I was feeling the need to make a card...just because!  So, since it seems like it has been so long since I've used one of my many Bugaboo Stamps, I chose to play with one of those.  I used their fun theme which is this picture:
http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/search/label/challenge


I used several different DPs, some flowers, a glittery shell, some gems and a seahorse charm.  I was wanting to add some stickle glitter to her fin, sadly, I can't find it...I still have some things I haven't unpacked, just not sure where it all is.  LOL

Hello on a Tic Tac Toe

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is a tic tac toe board.  We are being sponsored by Fabrica Fantasy.  The pre-colored image I used was "Summer Lynx".  I placed this image onto some rainbow digi paper and added the word digitally as well.  I then printed the image out, I added some "stitching" around the image and added a couple solid colors of cardstock.  I added a bow and some gems, then decided to "pop" the image by added a butterfly on top of the butterfly with a pop dot, and made his head pop as well.

here is the tic tac toe board (I went diagonal):

Happy Birthday From All Of Us

I needed to get some easier birthday cards made up, I'm almost out of them at work.  I give all of my birthday cards to co-workers on their birthdays with a signature from all of us on the team.

This image is from QKR, it is called Smiling Flowers.    I cut the image out using a fun scalloped die.

A Sunshiney Day

This fortnight's challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenges theme is "Flowers".  We are being sponsored by Scrap N' Dipity.  This adorable image is from Scrap N' Dipity.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.

On this card I used two DP's, and a few different colors of card stock.  I used a few different punches to punch them all out.  I added ribbon and lots of gem flowers.  I created the background myself using colored pencils.
