Land of the Free

Hi everyone and happy happy Monday!
Today starts a new challenge over at the Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge Blog!
The theme for this challenge is...

 Military 

Here is a look at the card that I created:


This was super simple! The Cricut pretty much did all the work for me. I found this fun outline of the United States with the text cut out of it in Cricut Access. I sized it to fit the front of my card, added some fun striped ribbon and popped it up onto my card base with some foam tape. I added a few Nuvo drops and some blue gel pen doodles and that's it! Easy peasy!!

Mermaid Hugs

Hi there crafty friends!
How's your weather? It has rained here for the last three days and it looks like it will be raining more for the rest of the week. Perfect for my garden and for staying in and crafting though so it's all ok lol!
Today I created a card for a few challenges in mind using a digi stamp from 2 Cute Ink.
I'm really loving the versatility in digi stamps! I can resize them and have them as big or small as I want. Don't get me wrong, I still love my clear and rubber stamps though and will not be giving those up anytime soon lol! I'm just really enjoying being able to use both kinds :) 

Enough of my rambling. Here is a look at the card that I created today:


I printed out my digi stamp onto some white cardstock and colored in the scene with my Copic markers. Once I had it colored in, I used a die from MFT to cut it out and stamped my greeting in the top left corner.  I created my card base from some blue cardstock and layered some fun patterned paper from Doodlebug on top. I popped up my image layer with some foam tape for a little dimension and added a crochet thread bow along the top. I completed my card with some white doodles on her tail as well as some glossy accents on the bubbles. I love mermaids and am so happy that I was able to get another card completed for Mer-May :) 

The challenges that I will be entering my card into are:

You are a be-you-ti-ful gift!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope this is finding you well!
I wanted to stop in tonight and share a card that I made for a swap that I was in with my friend Kimberly. We decided it would be fun to create a card for each other that incorporated a rainbow in some way and was bright and cheerful! We could all use a bit of that right??

Here is a look at the card that I created to send to her:


I chose this free image from Tiddly Inks, called Spring Wryn and sized the image to almost completely cover the front of my card base. I colored the image with some Copic markers and then popped it up with some foam tape onto my card base. I added a bit of doodling along the perimeter as well as some Nuvo drops to some of the flower centers. 



I think it came out so pretty!
I hope she likes it!

I will also be entering my card into the following challenges:

You Are Mermazing!

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Friday! Any weekend plans?
 My area is starting to open up with Phase 1 but I believe I will still stay home for a bit.
 I'm definitely ok with staying home and crafting lol!

Today I have a sweet and simple card to share with you that I created for a few challenges.

 Here is a look at the card that I created:


I started by using some thick white cardstock to create my base. I added some striped paper to the sides and did a bit of doodling along the perimeter. I diecut some blue patterned paper and stamped a few background images and added some sand by diecutting some light kraft cardstock and doing a little paper tearing. I added it to the front of my card front and started working on my image. I stamped my Rock and Mermaid from the Mermazing stamp set from MFT and colored them with my Copic markers. I fussy cut it out and popped it up onto my card front with some foam tape. I stamped my greeting onto some pink patterned paper, did some more doodling and popped that up as well. I completed my card with a few enamel dots in the upper left hand corner.
I couldn't let May pass by without a Mermaid card, I mean it is Mer-May after all right??

The challenges that I am entering are:

Christmas Cardinal

Hi Crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
Today I have a Christmas card to share with you that I made with a few challenges in mind.

The challenges that I am entering are:
(I used a bow, green and an image)

&


Here is a look at the card that I created:


If you come to my blog often, you've probably read that I made it a personal goal to make at least one Christmas card a month this year to try and get ahead, at least by a little lol! When I saw the sketch for Mojo Monday, I knew this chubby little cardinal would be perfect to put inside that circle focal point! I started with a red cardbase and covered it with some kraft patterned paper from Echo Park. I added a strip of green and white patterned paper from the same paper collection so it would match perfectly and then rounded one of the top corners of my card. I added a bit of doodling along the perimeter with a black sharpie pen and then started working on my image. I printed the digi stamp from 2 Cute Ink onto a piece of Hammermill Digital paper and colored it with my Copic markers. I used a circle die to cut it out and then backed it onto a red circle that I also cut out using a die. I adhered it to my card base and added a bit of glitter for the snowflakes and snow on the branch. I stamped my greeting, used more circle dies to cut it out, popped it up with foam tape and added a little crochet thread bow. I completed my card with a few white Nuvo drops.


I think this turned out so incrediby cute and since there isn't a lot of dimension, it will be super easy to mail! Gotta love that, especially during the holidays!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
