Birthday Wishes

These digi images are so fun aren't they. I so love coloring them with copics.
I love this one from Mosdigital pencil. I feel like running and catching before the girl drops the cake.


Simple embellishments. Some stickles, button, ribbon, crochet thread and some inking. Corners were cut using decorative scissors from hobby lobby. So worth it for about 10 dollars.

Shirley aka Okieladybug from cricut MB has some beautiful challenges in the old cricut community facebook group. Now I keep promising that I will tackle layouts but please don't hold your breath on that. The card challenge though - yes I can do that.
I am also entering this in little scrap pieces challenge

This weeks sketch was

Since I updated my imagine I have begun using it a little.  My first attempt and the mat broke! EEKS!
Thankfully I had another mat and used that to make the card

The heart is from Sophie cartridge and the pattern for the heart is from Imagine art cartridge - Better Together. The rest of the pattern paper  is from Me and My big Ideas paper stack. The sentiment is from a sticker collection I had.  The scallop was using Martha Stewart punch and the blue label is using purple cow blade. Some crochet thread, buttons and rhinestones to embellish.

Back to School

It's back to school and I wanted to share a project which my son made (with a tiny bit of help from me)
I finally went up and updated my Imagine and made stuff using it all the while keeping my fingers crossed.
I got a couple of cartridges in eBay in the wee hours of night. That's a bad time lurking there as you cant resist. One of them was TBBM2 and the other was greeting cards.
So I decided to break open TBBM2 and print and cut. After silhouette you can say I love print and cut. But with this cartridge I wish I had just printed like a paper and used expression to cut as I haven't figured out a way to do scoring lines with Imagine.
But with the booklet it was kind of easy to figure out scoring lines.
The elements in the card was all chosen by my son  and so was the box and it's pattern

The imagine cartridge  was Imagine more (I think) for pattern and card and alarm clock.

The label is nestability label 20 with just right stamps for label 20 - fleur de lis.

The inside of the card - The sentiment inside was dictated by my son. I just stamped and tied the bows and he helped with assembling.

The envelope - stamped the just right stamp on an ivory envelope and added the flat bow.

The box

There was a gap on the sides and as I did not want my candies to fall off I just cut an inch square and pasted it

Hope you enjoyed this project.
And please if you have a trick to scoring with Imagine please do share.

August Poppy

This is Pam from Papillon digital designs and TheBugBytes today at Shes a Sassylady. Thanks Sheila for having me here.
I was thinking on a project to do and I though I would google wikipedia and enter the month August. It's so cool - Sometimes when you are stuck and want inspiration doing something like this is the way to go. Sometimes I just want to try a particular technique and I build on that.
So when I read the article I saw that August 's birth flower is Poppy and I wanted to do a card with poppy as I had a lovely silhouette 3d poppy file

Here's the card

Here's a peek at the silhouette file

Now I did not want to cut out the intricate brown swirl so I sort of flattened that on a a colored rectangle. But I wanted the pop so after printing I outlined the swirl with copic multiliner and used copic spica pens. I also used spica and Tim Holtz distress markers to ink and decorate all the cuts. Going over a image or die cut with markers sort of distresses the surface fibers a little and gives a nice velvetty suede like texture.
The leafs get the color variation in color by using the distress markers and waterbrush and then adding a bit of subtle glitter with spica pen
Here a closer look of the spica pen effect

It isn't as overpowering as stickles and I love that bit of shine.
Here's the inside of the card

So google up a month and get inspired by the facts you read and make yourself a project.
Happy Crafting
