Love Bug Bestie Card


Hello All, 


Today I am working with another great image.  Love Bug is a cute image that I tried to turn into a fun Valentine's Day Card.  I say try, because I am not always successful in my attempts. 

Where I think I went wrong with this card is I tried to use to many colors.  I have both pink and red, and I think I should have stayed with one or the other, not both.  The heart is a doily shape from the Silhouette Store and the paper is from my stash.  I also think I should have added the bow over by the flower. 



I am always a full disclose, even if I don't like my final outcome.  this is the only way I can continue to improve my work. You can find this fun digi file here

As always, thank you for your time and your comments.

Bestie Birthday Card

Hello Everyone, 

I am back again today to show you a fun  card I made with no specific purpose in mind.  However, I do believe it would make a great birthday card or a card to just cheer someone up.   I generally do not put a sentiment on my cards until I need them.  I used another one of Sherri Baldy's fun Besties Stamps.  These truely are some great stamps that simply put a smile on every ones face. 

I have pulled out my Copic Markers again to play with and see what I can do.  I really am not very good with them, but I sure have a lot of fun playing with them and trying to improve my skills.  



You can find this adorable digi by shopping at the Bestie website here.   You will find this specific digi stamp here.   One of my favorite part of this digi are the adorable glasses and the fun curly hair.  

Thanks for looking, and I look forward to your comments.

Winter Christmas Card


Hello Everyone, I'm here again today with another great digi for Christmas from Sherri Baldy Stamps.  I do not color with my copic markers very often because to be honest with you, I am just not that good with them.  When I do use them, I do have fun though.  

Today I used the Winter Christmas digi which can be found here

Pink is one of my favorite colors, so I used these colors to dress up this adorable little lady. I added her to some great Christmas paper, with a fun bright red bow and a few snow flakes.  I don't often add embellishments that make my cards fat (for mailing purposes) however, this one I decided to try something different and fun so I added a pin to hold my sentiment. 

I hope you like it, she sure was fun to create!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Hello Everyone, today is my day to post up for Scrapbook Stamp Society.  I am getting this posting up a little late for a couple of reasons.  First, I have a serious conflict with my work email (which is also a gmail account) and my personal gmail account to access my blog.  Second, my husband and I are hosting a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner for his employee's tomorrow. So together we have spent the entire day in the kitchen.  

I have used this fabulous digi before to create a birthday card.  And this week, I am using it once again to create a card for my mother.  Today is her birthday.

This pretty little bestie was colored using Photoshop, and then accented with pretty pink lace and pink and white roses.

Garden Bestie Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone,  sorry I am running a little behind today.  Here is yet another one of Sherri's great Besties.  There are just a million ways to use these adorable digis.  

This wonderful garden teacup beauty graces the front of a birthday card. You can get your own copy of this beauty here



I colored her using Photoshop, then cut her out using my cameo, added a light blue background to match her hat and used Basic Bazil paper to accent the garden theme I felt with this digi.  I completed the card with a stamped birthday image  and added a nice pink flower.  Clean and simple!

My Whimsical Little World ~ October 27th New Releases

October 27, 2014 New Releases



Today is another new release day at My Whimsical Little World. this week, I have two cute cards to share with you.  Both are created close to the same as they are invites for a Thanksgiving party.  

The first, the Pilgrim Worm, a cute little worm thankful for the nice big juicy apple he is about the devour.  This digital image was colored with Photoshop then cut out using my Cameo.  Fast and easy.  The beautiful sentiment is also a Studio Files.  It is designed to be a cut file, however, I filled in the color and did a print and cut. 

 
The second file, Pumpkin Pie is created in much the same way, however, I used a different cameo cut for the pumpkin pie.  This time however, I did add some fall leaves and a nice flower.  

                    

Be sure to visit these blogs to see other awesome designs created with these same digis and more.

Steam Punk Bestie Candy Box

Today I want to share a fun project I made for Halloween.  I used this fun Steam Punk Bestie and created myself a fun candy box.  The candy box is an SVG pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs called a Scalloped Gift Box. You can access both by simply clicking on the links. 

I have discovered a new love of coloring with my Photoshop application. While it is really fun for me, I do still have a great deal to learn with the application.  


This is a project that is so far out of my comfort zone that I required some input from my SIL and my SBFF.  Both were instrumental in helping me get the project completed. 

The coloring was easy, and putting the box together was easy, putting the design together was a wee bit more difficult.  There are some fun elements on this box.  The metal gears, the paper flowers, and even the hidden clock face with the metal clock hand peaking out.  

Once I completed the Scalloped box, I used the Stencils and purple ink to create a half clock face.  Unfortunately, once I added the rest of my elements, you cannot see the stenciled clock.  I added the tulle with some hot glue to hold it securely.  

I used the print and cut feature of my Cameo to cut out the digi, and add a black shadow behind her.  I then added her to my box with pop dots so she would stand off the box.  

I purchased white paper flowers, and used Tattered Angels glitter spray to color the black one, and Tim Holtz alcohol ink to color the purple one.  I was a little disappointed in the color it turned out. I was wanting it to be a darker purple. 

Sticking with the steam punk theme, I added some metal gears to go along with the gears in the digi, and a metal clock hand on the right hand side to support the stenciled clock face.  I finished off the candy box by adding some black lace around the outside of the lid. 












Here is what I used to finish this project:  Steam Punk BestieLittle Scraps of Heaven Designs called a Scalloped Gift Box, Tim Holtz metal gears and metal clock hands. I also used I also used the Tim Holtz layering stencils Clock face.  Paper flowers and Tim Holtz inks.
