Wednesday Sketch Challenge - The Outlawz 4/22

Morning Peeps.  Wednesday means it's time for the sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  Our sponsor this month is Drawn with Character.  I really like this goofy looking reindeer so I made two cards with him.  After I photographed this card and posted it to the Outlawz site, I decided to add some Ice White Pearl Pen to the snow but was too lazy to re-photograph it. 

I used Recollections black cardstock and Bright Christmas 6x6 paper pad.  As usual, I colored the image with Copics after printing and cutting it out on my Cameo.  The ribbon is Celebrate It.  Flowers are Recollections.  I guess it helps to live only a half mile from Michaels.  I'm not sure it it's a blessing or a curse.  The bling is from Want2scrap.

Tuesday Throwdown #241

Hi Peeps!  It's time for the new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Lacy Sunshine.  The theme is Up in the Air/Things that Fly.  I translated that to be anything with wings.   I found this cute image called "Alice Tea Party Enchantress" and she has wings so I am assuming that she can fly. 

I colored her with Copics and used both gold and silver Wink of Stella Glitter Pens for her wings.  I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to cut the image with a scalloped background.  The lace ribbon is from Reasonably Reasonable Ribbon.  I added bling from Want2Scrap and the sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers.  The card base is from Hero Arts and the colored cardstock is from my scrap stash. To give a little dimension, I popped the image with foam tape.

Carta Bella 6x6 Traditions paper pad
Precolored digi and sentiment from Deedee's Digis
Flowers and bling from my stash.

The Outlawz April Progressive Challenge

Hi Peeps!  I have been working all morning on trying to figure out what to do with this adorable froggie.  That was after searching in my digi files on my computer for the digi.  I downloaded it when I received it and "toadily" forgot where I saved it.  I had to look through all my zillion files to find it.  I decided to make  him the focal point of my card and printed and cut him at 4" with my Cameo.   Then I cut an oval frame with the same cardstock as the base.  He is colored with Copics.  I popped him with foam tape to give a little more dimension to the card. The dragonflies are also a Silhouette file.  The sentiment is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  I cut the card base with Core'dinations embossed cardstock.  The dp is from Echo Park Hello Summer 6x6 pad.

FTHS Progressive April Hamlet PigWit Being Shy

Hello Peeps,
(Stamp of the Month) from From the Heart Stamps has really cute images. It is a monthly progressive challenge so make sure you go to the site and get your image for this month.  You will automatically receive the image next month if you enter this month.  The image for April is Hamlet PigWit Being Shy.

I used DCWV Fun in the Sun Summer Adhesive cardstock for my base.  The die cut is Tim  Holtz Alterations Lattice die.  For the die cut and the filler pieces, I used American Crafts Foil cardstock.  I cut Hamlet with the print and cut feature on my Cameo, colored him with Copics and popped him with foam tape.  The sentiment is part of the monthly freebie.
