Two of a Kind

Hello Everyone,
I am sharing with you a card I made about a week ago for a wonderful couple who were celebrating their Wedding Anniversary.  I really loved this image of Mr Pepper & Mrs Salt from Some Odd Girl.  I thought I could make something quite different with it.  As I was making it I wanted to use only White and 1 other colour.  I chose Purple because it’s my favourite.

Salt and Pepper CardI am really happy with how the card turned out.  I don’t know what I was so scared about using mainly white on a card.  But for me this has always been a no go zone for my card crafting.  But after this success I might consider doing something like this more often.  The interesting thing is that even though at the time I didn’t know what the challenge on the Some Odd Girl Blog would be I ended up making a card that could be a part of the December challenge 🙂

Salt and Pepper ImageHere is a close up of my colouring of the sweet image.  I used my Copic Markers to colour the image. And I used my card making program to place the words around the Digital image.  This is one thing that I love about Digital images being able to do stuff with them before the printing process.

But I just want to say thanks to you for taking the time to stop by my blog and looking at my creations.  And to let me know that you stopped on by today and what you thought of my creation, why not leave me a comment below.  I love to hear what people think of my creations – feedback is how I improve my craft.  And my final thought for you today is:  That I hope you find yourself doing something you love.

Hugs & Blessings Always

Love Is Grand

Today I am sharing with a really quick post.
This card I made for the latest Some Odd Girl Blog Challenge.
“Speech Bubbles”.

Loving CoupleI have used 2 digital images from Some Odd Girl to make this card.  I have used “Squeesy Hugs” and “Sentiment – LOVE“.  I coloured in both of these with my Copics.  And drew a heart speech balloon for the sentiment.  All of the papers that I used are from my stash.  I thought I better use up some of what is in there.

Anniversary Love

Hello Everyone,Today I bring you an Anniversary Card that I made at the beginning of April.
I made this card specifically for my Sister-In-Law & her Hubby for their 13th Anniversary.

Anniversary LoveThe image I have chosen is the digital image “Squeezy Hugs” from Some Odd Girl.  I have loaded this image into my picture program and I have placed a heart mask over the top portion of the image and printed this on my computer.  I coloured the image in with my Copic markers and I added the beard detail in because my Brother-In-Law is sporting one at the moment.

I followed the April sketch at the Some Odd Girl Blog for the placement of the details.  All of the papers are from my stash and I free cut the tags for along the bottom. And I used some Washi tape along the bottom following the sketch placement.  My Sister-In-Law really liked the card when I gave it to her.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and looking at my creations.  To let me know that you stopped on by today why not leave me a comment below.  I love to hear what people think of my creations – feedback is how I improve my craft.  And finally my prayer for you is that you find yourself doing something you love.

Classy Couple

Hello Everyone,Today I got to get some cardmaking done….Yeah!
While I haven’t been on here I haven’t been doing nothing.
I have been doing some knitting and some drawing.
The knitting I will have to take photos of and show you all.

But onto why I’m writing this post
The card I made…..
GwenKody AnniversaryI am super happy with how this card turned out.  When I saw the images of 1920’s Gwen & 1920’s Kody from Some Odd Girl I knew instantly what I wanted to do with them.  So I bought them ages ago but I didn’t have the Copics to colour them the way that I wanted. But this morning I picked up my Happy Mail – which included more Copics – which I missed being delivered to my Door because I was out at my Weekly Craft Group.  But I got them…. yeah! So I have been playing around with them.  I actually bought the ones that I did to be able to colour in another Some Odd Girl image …. and I did but I wasn’t 100% happy with the results so I didn’t give up on colouring I went and coloured this image.

The image as I said is Gwen & Kody from Some Odd Girl they are Digital Stamps and sold separately.   I have coloured them in with my Copics and I have also followed the Feb Sketch from the Some Odd Girl Blog.  So I will be uploading there for that competition.  I am pleased with myself because everything I used in making this card came from my stash of supplies – well except for my new Copics :$ – but who ever has enough? I ask you??

GwenKody Anniversary InsideOn the inside I used up the papers leftover from making the front and stuck a favourite verse of mine inside as well.  This verse I use for both Wedding and Anniversary Cards.
