Lost & Found at SoSS

I'm entering this card at SoSS #93 - L is for Lost and Found


The Sista's are challenging all of us to use things that we have stored, stashed, forgotten, etc. This card came together out of my reject basket (sometimes I cut things that end up being the wrong size or color and it ends up in the basket!).


This card is way out of my comfort zone-lots and lots of doodads. I'll try to list what I know!
  1. Background and main image-Bathing Beauties by Graphics 45.
  2. Lace-stash.
  3. Brown border-stash (I keep items like this in a plastic storage box for future use).
  4. Buttons-stash
  5. Tag & Sentiment-Unity Stamps.
  6. Gold & teal banners-Martha Stewart-finally found them in my Oops basket.
  7. Brown Picture flourish-Spellbinders, Creative Memories paper.
  8. Ric Rack & Twine-Michaels
Thanks you for visiting!

Kitty Bee Designs-Spotlight August

Hello! Today I want to share with you this adorable image, Happy Birthday Kitty, from Kitty Bee Designs-




The whole theme of the card came from this spotted paper from GCD 6 x 6 pack called Sunkissed. I made spots on the icing to resemble sprinkles, and made the hat spotted with Copic markers. The image was cut out with MFT Stitched Square dies, and I used my Cricut to make the balloons and circle for the sentiment. The sentiment design is from the Cricut Artiste stamps, and the Happy Birthday is from Avery Elle's Thanks a Bunch set.

I always need birthday cards, so this is a great addition to my stash.

Thanks for visiting!

Here is one of my favorite projects from being a DT member at Kitty Bee Designs-


I did make this an Aries card for a friend of mine who's really into astrology. I thought it would be cool to make an actual copy of the constellation (drew it freehand) using the leftover stars from the Spellbinders Star Circles die. The image was colored with Copics, and the sentiment square was made using Micosoft Word, and making a dark blue fill of the text box with white letters. The background was so fun to make, using masking fluid and black and blue Brusho's.

Here is my mermaid from Sasayaki Glitter-




I LOVE teal-it's one of my favorite colors! So this color challenge was easy for me. A few notes about this card-the fish stamp actually is a thought bubble with the fish in it. I fussy cut the fish and made a small school to visit the mermaid. The background was a practice piece for underwater images, but it worked perfectly for this card. Here are the rest of the materials I used:
  1. Image: Mermaid (Sasayaki Glitter), colored with Copics.
  2. Stamp: fish (If Cats Could Talk, Taylored Expressions).
  3. Dies: sentiment (Little B Sentiments), inside/outside stitched circle (Taylored Expressions.
  4. Paper: XPress It (Copic), teal glitter cardstock (scrap stash).
Thanks for visiting, and have a wonderful day!

Happy July 4th!


Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project for you!



This card features Ty the Tiger, and you can find him here at the Kitty Bee Etsy Store. I had used my image with foil and a laminator, and after the image outline came out beautifully silvered, I had another Ty to foil! I put a thorough but thin coat of glue stick on a piece of black cardstock, ran it through the laminator again, and had a solid silver kitty with black outline. I fussy cut him out and added a Cricut cut hat for his 4th of July celebration. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions (God Bless America stamp), and I added the stars from the hat under the sentiment. I used Color Box inks, Neenah Solar White cardstock, along with red, blue cardstock from Michaels.

Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
