Pirate

ARF Pirate 1

Hey everyone, when I was in the studio yesterday making cards, I was digging through my pile of coloured images that hadn’t yet been put onto a card and ran into this gem. He jumped out at me because the other day I ran accross the pirate paper scraps in my scrap paper drawers (yes I am still on the try and use up some of my paper kick) and I think they were a perfect match. The image is Pirate Adventure from A Random Fan, and was coloured up with copic markers.

Unfortunately because of how long ago I coloured this it was before I was keeping track of all of my colours. And if you look at my other work you can see how far my colouring has come, even from this, BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t love this little image and he still deserved to be on a card. Remember, the more you colour the better you get!

My Batty Hero

My Batty Hero 1

Hey everyone! Todays card features My Batty Hero from Tiddly Inks, my son is in love with superheros (as tons of 5 year old little boys are), so when I saw Challenge #159 Super Power on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog I had to do it right?

So i printed the image out at 8.5 cm tall and coloured it and the background on a single layer then cut it out and layered it on some more round die cuts.

I have been doing a ton of square cards lately, and this one I did as a standard A2 card!

I kept the layout of this card very simple with some solid cardstock and two patterned papers.

Super Pig Birthday

Parker the pig 1

Hey everyone! I have a 4 year old son, that is by every definition of the word a super hero addict, seriously its insane all the stuff he knows about them. Anyway, back on point when I saw this set from Stamping Bella how could I not get it!

I kept this card very simple, I coloured the super pig with copics and used the sentiment included on the set. The papers I used were from the Bo Bunny Surprise collection. The blue ribbon across the center is from my stash, I do beleive I picked it up at Dollarama here in canada. The black cardstock is out of my scrap bin I would guess it is American Crafts left over from a layout.

Bear Birthday

Paper smooches bear 1

 

Sometimes cute and simple just works for me. I love this little bear from the Paper Smooches Chubby Chum Pals stamp set. I kept it simple and just coloured him in with my Prismacolour Pencils on Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock.

The white dots put on the image were done with a Golden Titanium white heavy body acrylic paint. I die cut that panel with the Lawn Fawn small stitched rectangles dies, I left the die in place and inked it with distress ink then wrapped the twine around the bottom. I layered a panel of vellum behind the image over top of the birthday paper from the Bo Bunny Surprise collection.

Bike Kid Boy Card

Bike Kid 1

 

Hey everyone, sometimes simple is the way to go, especially when it comes to male cards. The flowers and lace and all the pretty layers just feel off if I try to make them work.

Bike Kid 2

This image is rather large so I stuck to just a few simple patterned papers backed with black cardstock, I always seem to find myself reaching for black when it comes masculine cards. The sentiment is just a simple messages on the inside of the card.
