Happy Friday! Can you believe it's already Friday? I so can't. It has been one crazy week and it's hard to believe that the weekend is upon us.
Speaking of weekend.....this Saturday is Frenzy at Scrapbook Destination! What is Frenzy you ask? Well, it's a great way to make super cute projects without breaking the bank.
I figured I'd give you a sneak peek at the project I've created for this weekend, just in case you want to come by.
I'm not sure it's going to look exactly like this, but you get the gist right?
I stamped her with green ink and colored her in with pencils. You know I had to add the BLING and Glittah. Because Bling and Glittah make everything better.
Now here is my plea....
With economic times being the way they are, it is getting harder and harder for small family owned businesses to stay open. Please my sistas PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE shop at your Local Scrapbooking Store. You're going to spend the money anyway, why not use your money for good? You usually get more personalized service and I know I like to go..."where everybody knows my naaaaame. And they're always glad I caaaaaaame." (Quick shout out to the gals at SBD! Love you all!)
*climbing off my soapbox...
Thanks for visiting me this week sistahs! I've had so much fun posting this week that I just might have to post again all next week too. We'll have to see. *wink
Whew, what a fun few days this has been! Thank you all for your warm wishes and words of support. It means the world to me that you all have taken the time to leave comments here and validate my work. Okay, enough with the mushy stuff, on with the card.
You know how I LOVE everyone over at Scrapbook Destination, well, it was that time of the month again...and I'm so excited to show you one of the cards we made at Frenzy. For the past few months I've been using Copics to color in the Bellas, however, this month I decided to stray from my Copics and head for the Pencils.
Now, the technique I used for this cards is not my own, it came from the fabulous Jan Tinklenberg and her detailed tutorial can be found here. (If you scroll down past the few recipe cards you'll find the tutorial.) I love the pastel-y look you get when you use the pencils like this. All the gals at the Frenzy did a superb job coloring her with this technique.
Here is a close-up of the coloring...
I added the flocking to her fur trim to give her that extra special touch.
I also have to give a shout out to all the fabulous gals at Scrapbook Destination. There were so many beautiful cards created on Saturday, that I cannot believe anyone would miss a Frenzy. Mark your calendar for next month's Frenzy...December 6th.
Thank you Rachel for the Supertape! You really know how to make a girl feel loved.
I seriously thought that my schedule would get so much easier once my son's birthday was over. Boy was I wrong! It has been non-stop action here. I have only had a few moments to stamp lately, but that's all about to change because I have more cards to design for Frenzy this Saturday at Scrapbook Destination. Since I never got the chance to really share last month's Frenzy designs with you, I figure now is as good a time as ever.
Isn't she lovely? I have so much fun coloring Bellas in with Copics. I mean seriously. Now, the web in the upper corner was made with a Quickie Glue Pen and black glitter. I just drew it in, then glittered it up. This is a recreation of the card I originally made for Frenzy. I added extra details that would have been too hard to do for a quick make-n-take. So I cut out her trick-or-treat bucket and popped it up on a dimensional. I usually add glossy accents to everything, but I didn't before I took this photo. Since you're so used to my using it everywhere by now, I figure you can use your imagination. *wink
Next up is Witchybella:
This card was a bit of a pain to make, but I LOVE it. The pumpkin you see on the right side is actually a spinner. It's suspended in the hole using dental floss. You wind it up before you put it into the card so when the recipient opens it, it spins around. Another one I probably shouldn't have tackled at a make-n-take...but you live and you learn right? The web on this card was made using a Black Sakura Glaze pen. I love them because they look like you spent time embossing, but you really just drew the image with the pen. They are FABULOUS! Anyway...looking at the card right now, I see that I totally forgot to color in her other sleeve above the pumpkin...DUH! What a dork I am. It just goes to show that I am not OCD, because I never would have posted it if I had OCD right?!
Thanks for stopping in, I promise that I'll be posting more often after Halloween is over. Big things are coming.....
