You Crack Me up!

When I saw this "Giggles" digital stamp by Bloobel Stamps I had to have it!  I had to add the little skulls to the dress of course.  Its my wild hair and my unlaced black boots that has "me" written all over it.  There is a retirement sale going on for a limited time...digi stamps for a buck!!   You can still get this and a few (around 50) of the other images...better hurry!  You can find them HERE.  After the beginning of January they are gone gone gone...yes, that is just days away!

Long Time...

How about a little giggle?  I almost went with "Do these spots make my butt look big" but I went with a short quote instead.  This digital stamp is another new fun one from Craftin' Desert Divas.  I had to color it up seeing as I colored the rest of the Safari images.  No animals left "behind"...(get it?).   I crack myself up.   You can find her HERE.

Confused Chameleon

I forgot to post this fun little guy from DoodleDragon "confused chameleon".  It was cool making the colors blend into a rainbow.  You can find him (and many more super cute digitals) HERE in the store.  It took a little playing around on a scratch piece of paper to get the blends right and not muddy but I think I got it.  Can't wait to see what you do with this one!!

Great Seeing You!

How about this guy to make you smile?  He is one of the digitals from Craftin' Desert Divas called Safari Zebra.  I saw him and HAD to color him up!  A hoot right?  He is so perfect for so many different sentiments.  "Here's Lookin' at Yah".

Craftin Desert Divas has not only adorable digitals but clear stamps and dies too...careful its all have been warned!!

Stuck On You

I colored up this classic DoodleDragon Studios image today.  I love how it can be an everyday card or a fun Christmas card.  I added the stripes to the light pole with my markers for a more holiday look.  Adding Nuvo Crystal drops for the snow is a perfect added dimension to a mainly "white" card.  It was super quick and fun to do.  Dries quickly too!

My Fantasy World

Combining Dustin's (DoodleDragons) stinkin' cute Fairy Llamacorn and a fun sentiment I came up with, I created this card. 

...are you laughing yet? 

I thought I would use more pastel-like colors for this one.  I love how it turned out and went nicely with the pattern papers I found in my stash.  Topped off with a few buttons and of course some bling, because what is a fairy Llamacorn without bling.  I might have to come back and spill some glitter on it later.  

Here is the sentiment I came up with.

This Fairy Llamacorn digital stamp is now available in the NEW Doodledragon store.  If you are looking for older Doodledragon you can find them in the Etsy store.

Is It Over Yet?

Are you feeling it?!  Are you over it?  Well Merry flipping' Christmas!  Ha ha...I just had to do it! This image by Bloobel Stamps, teamed up with some Tonic goodies it worked out perfectly to create this hilarious card.   As soon as I saw the image I had to have it!  This year we are keeping it very simple and it has been such a stress free time.  A little 4.5 ft fake tree decorated with a dozen or so special ornaments and nothing underneath...not even a tree skirt...yet...I'm sure a couple little goodies will show up after Santa crawls through the RV fan opening on the roof.   Putting away the whole Christmas thing will be simple too...YAY!  I love stress free...just like making this card...well almost.

Did you know Tonic Studios has Glimmer Paste, Stencils as well as the loved Nuvo drops?  For this card I used Beautiful Bokeh stencil with the Garnet red Glimmer Paste.  Using a craft knife I spread the Glimmer Paste over the stencil and then gently removed it.  The great thing about this Glimmer Paste is it dries quickly allowing you to continue working on your card... UH OH...dries quickly?    Better get the glimmer paste washed off the stencil and quit my fussy-farting around.  I won't do that again....stencil cleaned well after a little scrubbing though.  WHEW!  After I was done assembling the card I added a little Woodland Green Crystal Drops to the red Bokeh background and accented a few white spaces.  I think its perfect!.  The shimmer is amazing but of course photos don't pick it up will just have to trust me.

If you need some personal spoiling for Christmas how about treating yourself to a few days of coloring, knowledge and fun in Phoenix, Arizona?!

This is a little reminder that if you haven't registered for the last of the Copic classes and workshops that are being taught in Phoenix in January you should get signed up right away!!  The link is HERE. I will be teaching at these events as well as Debbie Olsen and Cindy Lawrence.  They are going to be FABULOUS!!
