Spotlight Technique

 This card was made for this week's 'Use a new (or rarely used by you) technique' at Catch The Bug Challenge.

For my card I used the 'Spotlight Technique'.  For mine, I did this 98% digitally (the other 2% was printing it out and added the gems & sentiment).  I used the image called Scene It - Lady Bugs.  I added a die cut hi and added some blue gems.

Pink Christmas Claus'

 Sometimes I wish I could convince my Santa (I'm a professional Claus) to go pink.  Wouldn't that be a blast?  Maybe the kids wouldn't get it?  Regardless, I did this fun Polkadoodle image in pinks.  It is one of my favorite colors.  What are my favorites?  Pink, blue, black, purple, glitter...wait, glitter is a color, right?  I used a die for the sentiment and added a pink bow.  I drew the stitching around the image and the white cardstock.

Halloween/Fall With IWDC

 This card was made for this fortnight's challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge.  The theme is 'Halloween and/or Autumn-fall colors'.  We have two sponsors for this challenge, Pattie's Creations and Oddball Art By Lizzy Love.


This card was made using two images from Pattie's Creations, the flower was a previous freebie on her sight.  The other is Pumpkin With Vines.  The owl is actually from another artist/store, Nikki on our DT is the artist for Limited Runs, I really felt like her owl needed to be on there too.  I added some gems, a glittery paper punched using a large scallop circle punch and a bow.

Funny Birthday

 This is Sassy Suzie from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment and the image are all from a long expired set.  I'm not 100% in love with this card, I was going for fall colors, but, I think it came out a bit too colorful; it's still fall colors, but maybe too many of them?  LOL  The round sentiment is a freebie from Netty's Cards.  I added a lg. button over the center.  I also used some gems, a ribbon, lots of flowers and some glitter paper.  The black paper going across was actually a short edge piece I found, cut it in half and used it (gotta love using your scraps).

Cowgirl Princess Birthday

 Another birthday card for a co-worker.  For this one I asked the gal who works the closest with her what her likes were, her hobbies, if she collects anything, etc...  I was told she was  a bit of a contradiction, that she was a rough tough cowgirl type, but she is also all girly and likes her bling.  So, rodeo/cowgirl princess came to mind.  I looked through my images and found this one from Cute As A Button called Cheyenne.  I went with pink girlie colors with a black base, added some gems and ribbons.  The tag is a Stampin Up tag set.

Under Your Bed

 This card was made for the Tuesday New Release Post at Catch The Bug.  This image is called Clown Around - Hello

For this image, I added some teeth and blood droplets to make it look a bit darker for Halloween and used darker colors for his outfit.  For the card I added some spider punch, ghost punch and a cat punch.  I added some gems and called it good enough.  All of the papers used were scraps laying around from other cards I've made recently.
