Creative Knockouts Challenge #233 Anything Goes

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  Welcome back for the next Creative Knockouts Challenge sponsored by Crafty Sentiments   I just love Toby!!!!  This image is called Toby in a Pot.

I printed two of this image.  I embossed one with the Celebrate border and colored in the flower pot, Toby, and the mushroom.  On the second sheet, I colored in the butterfly, parts of Toby, the top of the mushroom, and the flowers.  I then fussy cut each of those out and popped them up on the base card.  I added some Nuvo Drops and some glitter from the Spectrum Noir glitter pens.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Aud Sentiments #197 For a Friend

Welcome back to Aud Sentiments!  These weeks theme is 'For a Friend' sponsored by All Dressed Up!  Using images of 'people' is typically out of my wheelhouse but I just love how this card turned out.  The image is Fairy magic.  I printed her out on my laser jet printer and then colored in the two bows, wings, and two butterflies with Spectrum Noir Glitter Pens.  I added white Nuvo Drops to the bows.  For the first time ever I used joint tape (sheetrock tape).  I painted it with black acrylic paint and added it as one of my layers in the background.  The 'Love' sentiment is from Winnie and Walter popped up with foam.  I colored it with distress inks, sprayed it with water, and spritzed it with red smooches and glitter spray.  Thank you for joining us this week at Aud Sentiments!

If you give a crafter a cookie! Challenge #87

Happy Valentine's Day!  Will you be mine?  Welcome to Challenge #87!
How adorable is this image from  My Besties?  This is Valentine's Day Image 143.   I had so much fun with all the layers and mediums!  It was a flocking good time!  I printed the image on my laser jet printer.  Then I used a small circle stencil and my quickie glue pen to add dots all over the background and Elizabeth Crafts cool diamond glitter.  When that dried, I used my spectrum noir markers and glitter markers to color in this little critter and the tree.  I added glossy accents to the tree and Nuvo drops to the scarf.  Then I went CRAZY with the glue and the flock!  The skirt and every level of the tree are flocked.  What a good time!  Thank you for joining us at Give A Crafter a Cookie this week!  The team and I can't wait to see your creativity!

Aud Sentiments #196 Valentine's/Love

It's almost here!  Valentine's Day!  Thank you so much for joining us this week at Aud Sentiments!  I fell in love with Altenew's Best Buds Stamp Set and their layering ink colors.  Simply beautiful.  I added a little Spectrum Noir Glitter Clear to each of the flowers.  For the background, I picked one of the flowers and embossed it in crisp white.  It is subtle and adds elegance.  The sentiment is from Concord & 9th 'You fill my heart with love and flowers.'  I hope my Valentine will like their card.  I finished it off with a few Nuvo Drops. Thank you for joining us!!!  I can't wait to see your creations!

2 Crafty Critter Crazies February Challenge

Thank you to Sheepski Designs for hosting the February Challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  I'm so glad you stopped by!

This month I chose to work with 'Lil Skunk.'  He is typically a single image.  I flipped him and made a second skunk so they could fall in love for Valentine's Day!  Once I colored the skunks in with my spectrum noir markers (and glitter markers for the white), I masked them and used a heart stencil for the background.  The sentiment 'You're Stinkin' Cute' is from Lawn Fawn.  The heart die is from Simon Says Stamp.  I die cut it twice and then added the pieces back in to create a stained glass effect.

I hope you join us this month!  I can't wait to see your Critter designs!
