Crafty Sentiments-Summer Theme

Hello everyone. Summer vacation is in full swing here.  This week for the Crafty Sentiments Challenge-Summer, I decided to change my creative juices just a little and do an altered upcycle piece. I have been seeing other use mint boxes and convert them into holders for earphones so I decided to do one for when we head out to the beach and stuff.

Since coffee is my favorite drink, I usually have quite the stash of breath mints on me. I took the adorable stamp, Bubbles, and colored it up with my Copics. I then used my circle Spellbinder dies to cut the image out. I then use modge podge to glue it to the front of the case. I added a sparkle gem over the starfish on the image.

Hope you enjoy this project. I now have to do a few more as my daughters want one for themselves.

I will also be entering this one into the following challenges:

Quick Creations GDT card

Hello, It is Olivia here and it is time for my monthly post here for Quick Creations. This month I was able to play along with one of the newer images from CC Designs, A Little Cloudy.  I colored it with my Copics and then used the adorable paper from DoodleBug-Hello Sunshine Set.

Crafty Sentiments-Anything Goes

Welcome everyone. Sorry for the delay but wanted to post my card I created for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Crafty Sentiments.

I am really loving some of the newest stamps release and Isobel is one of my favorite characters. As usual, I colored it with my Copics and I pulled out one of my retired stamp sets to so the sentiment for the card.

SOG Sunshine Card

The weather over here has been crazy but it finally getting sunny and hot on a consistent basis. I actually am one of those people who LOVE thunderstorms so I do not mind them rolling into town.

I have this SOG card in my collection for a while so decided to use it to create a card.
Isn't it adorable!!! The paper is from my stash and I believe is a combo of different companies. I decided to do the self-made flowers technique again on the umbrella and use some of my brighter colors.
The skin color is a newer combo I was trying with E15,13,11 and a bit of R30. I really like it and going to try it again on another image.
Hair is E29,27,23 and yellows are Y19,15,11 and greenish yellow are YG25,23,21
Yes I actually wrote them down WHOA.

Make It Crafty

Can you believe all the posts I have lol.  I am on a roll. So decided to show off this cutey I did.

The challenge for the MIC CAS team was to create your own background. So I have these stencils dies and honestly for the life of me, I can not figure out how to use them.  I thought I would give it a try but have to admit I am not loving it but I do love the way the image got colored so figured I would go with it. 

The sentiment is from a stamp set my daughter got me for Mother's Day (yes they get me small crafty presents cause they know me so well).  As always I colored the image with my Copics.

Mo Digital Pencil

I am back again. I was on a roll with trying to get through this paper pad so I continued with this color scheme I used in my previous card.

I saw this awesome technique that one of my favorite coloring bloggers, Rosemary Bridges did with making your own flowers on the shirt. How did I do!!
Went pretty CAS on this one but I thought the image was so nice.

Greeting Farm-Add a Bow

Unfortunate for me I have been sick for the last few days, but I do find that when I can not sleep anymore, I like to just relax and color between my cups of tea and Theraflu. 

So I got a bunch of images done. I recently acquired the Roll Call Retired Kit from someone who as clearing out their stash and wanted to get work on one of these cuties.

I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch and decided to just add a small bow to her hair as I am not really one to use bows on my cards.  Hope you like her and see all of again soon.

Will be adding this to a few challenges:
