Pop it Up in March

Heya friends! I’m here again with a new creation. It is for the March Challenge up on Some Odd Girl.

I finally got to coloring up one of the new Hipster Cats from January! This is Coffee Cat, who is just adorable.

Continuing with my flat themed cards, this one is popped up in order to fit the March Challenge. 🙂 Still, I had a lot of fun coming up with what to do, and what paper to use!

February Some Odd Girl Release Review

Hey everyone! One new thing that we are doing at Some Odd Girl is our Some Odd Girl Release Review, where at the end of every month we get to look back on the projects made with that month’s new digis. 🙂 It is a great idea & I love it.

Here you have two of my own projects, one being new and the other is from the Valentine’s Hop.

My new creation is using the awesome new SOG character, Dakota. This is one tough cookie! Even with that being said, she still knows how to take it easy and just be.

Copic Markers used:
Skin: E11, E13, E15, E19
Hair: C3, B28, C5, C7
Shirt: R81, R83
Pants: C3, C5, C7

I’m sticking with my flat cards, but have switched over to an A6 size. This is a bit easier for me to print out images for a next-to-full sized card base. I love concentrating on just coloring the images and accenting with a patterned paper and border. 🙂

A little refresher from the V-day’s hop – Swoon Dakota! She is just a fabulous, versatile character and I can’t wait to see more of her.

There were quite a number of new images in February, so make sure to stop by the Blog for our Some Odd Girl Release Review to see examples from the Design Team! Or…you could just hop over to the store and pick yourself up some NEW digis!

 

Neve Warm Winter Wishes

Wow, it is December already! I’ve been on the Make it Crafty blog for a month already – only one more month to go. *cry* I’m still so lucky to be able to play with the wonderful images like Neve in this card I posted on the MIC blog yesterday.

I stayed with my ever favorite layout, with the addition that I first placed Neve so she and the snowman would hit the lowest point. It left plenty of space for the awesome MIC digital sentiment!

Color Copics used:

Skin: E000, E50, E53, R20
Hair: YR20, E53, E55
Dress/Bow: R81, R83, R85, R89
Hat/Scarf: E50, E51, E53
Jacket: BV20, BV23, BV25
Shoes: C5, C7, C9
Snowman scarf/hat: B000, B00, B02, E50, E51
Snowman: C0, C1, C5, C7, YR02, YR06
Shadows: BV20, BV23
Background: V000, B000, C0, C1

I did try a full-Copic background here, just in the lighter colors V000 and B000. I’m working up to trying it in the darker shades, but first I need to make sure my markers are cleaned and well juiced up before I try it. 😀 While I’m not totally in love with the background, that isn’t the focus of the card – Neve and the sentiment are, so I’m satisfied with how the card turned out. 😀

I had a heck of a time coloring up this beauty, so if you hop over to the blog post you will see some tricks that I pull out when things just aren’t going to plan. 🙂 Very rarely can I not salvage a colored image or card using these tricks so they are good to keep in the back of your mind.

Batty Baxter and the MIC Galaxy

Hello friends. I was up on the Make it Crafty blog yesterday with this lovely card, so today it is here for you all to see. It is a lovely card using the Batty Baxter digital stamp, Scribble Star Chipboard Frame and “Believe” chipboard word. I just love the chippies!

Batty Baxter Card

I created the galaxy, which is my latest obsession, using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. It was so easy! At first I was suspect to how it would turn out, but dang it came out amazing, if I don’t say so myself. The white stars are droplets of white paint.

The Scribble Circle Stars Frame is painted a silvery metallic. I think it gives a nice backdrop to Batty Baxter. To finish it off I colored up the chippy “Believe” in cordinating copic colors and then slathered it with Wink of Stella. 😀

Chipboard “Believe”: V06, V09, B28, B99

And here is a closeup of the  “Believe” chipboard. I really love these chipboard words from Make it Crafty. They add some wonderful dimension to the card and are a great deal pricewise!

A Razi Fall Card

Hello my friends. I’m over on the Make it Crafty Blog again this week with a cute, fall card using the lovely Razi Petal Sprite and Autumn Wooden Fence stamps.

Razi is such a cute image, albeit not a fall image. 🙂 That is why I took a plunge and went sepia on this card, plus I added the awesome Autumn Wooden Fence and Maple Leaf Chipboard Set! Seriously LOVE the chippies!

My layout is a bit chaotic, but so is fall! I cut out four right triangles out of a fun fall paper collection called The Fox (digital) by Meredith Cardall. Lots of Distress Inky goodness between Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain went on top, as well as some glitter gel to add some bling!

E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E43

Wanna take a close look at the Maple Leaves? The new chippies are Copic friendly, which means I got to color them up with my Copics and create a sweet ombre effect! I also went over them with my Wink of Stella in clear to add some bling. 😀
