One of my favorite people is celebrating a birthday today! Melissa from Pink Cat Studio is the birthday girl and I couldn't just let it go by without doing a little somethin' somethin'. I've organized a mini birthday blog hop with members of the PCS design team, present and past. We've all made a birthday card to share with Melissa and you today!
Here's my contribution to the party...
This fun image is definitely a favorite of mine and perfect for a birthday card. It's called "Birds Make a Giant Cupcake" and can be found right here.
I colored the image with my Copics, popped up the bird wings with dimensionals and accented all of the sprinkles with glaze pens.
Then I finished it off with as many flowers and jewels that the USPS can handle!
So here's to you Melissa! Have a wonderful birthday!
(Wow - say that 5 times fast, creepin' creeper crew collection, creepin' creep....)
This is Harlow...
I fell in love with this crazy pattern by Crate Paper when I was at the scrapbook store yesterday. It's part of the "snow day" collection. The brown pattern is the reverse side and I paired it all up with some Elegant Eggplant and a touch of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
To make everything matchy-matchy, I paper pieced her hoodie and finished it off with some ribbon and jewels.
Thanks hoppin' over to my corner of blog-land today! Be sure to check out the details of my latest challenge over at CSAYL. We have an awesome sponsor and freebies this week!
Did anyone else order the Ginormous Creeper Kit from The Greeting Farm? I absolutely fell in love with those creepy little kiddos and had to have them when they were on special pre-order on March 1st! I got them in the mail soon after, but never got around to opening them because of everything going on in Japan with my hubby's family.
Well, we got some fantastic news over the weekend - the cousin and wife that have been missing since the quake and tsunami were finally tracked down and found to be alive and well!! It's simply amazing that they survived and we're so thrilled! We also got word on the rest of our dear friends out there and everyone is fine! It's such a relief and so wonderful to finally have some good news to tell our kiddos.
After hearing all of the good news this weekend, my crafting mojo returned and I spent lots of time in my workshop playing with my creepy new goodies.
I left some parts of the image white, and then colored over them with a glitter pen. They're super SPAR-KA-LAY in person!
I used a double-sided pattern by American Crafts, a rub-on sentiment and embellished with white flowers, black leaves, buttons and ribbon. The only color that I used on the card was some blue ink for her eyes.
Thanks for stopping by today to peek at my latest creation.
For my first card today, I used one image five times.
Don't you just love "copy & paste"?!
One of the benefits of using digital images is the ability to manipulate them any way you want. For this card, I shrunk down the image, copied it four more times and then lined them all up in a row.
I used tiny alphabet rub-ons to spell the word "happy" across their cute little coneheads. To finish off the main panel, I drew in some grass and flowers. You can check out my tutorial for that right here if you like.
For my next card, I paired up some great new patterns from American Crafts with some Soft Suede cardstock.
I used dimensionals to pop up the top of the mushroom and the little guy peeking over it. Then I finished it off with some bright yellow Doodlebug Sugar Coating.
Ready to get your hot little hands on these cuties?!
