Fresh Brewed Mermaids

Today I wanted to share some cards I made for a recent challenge at Fresh Brewed Designs, if you follow our design team blog you saw these.
Aren't they gorgeous?  I'm really proud of how they turned out.

I have to share a little snippet from our lives, Emily loves to look at the cards I make and she was looking at this one above and said "oh mom! I love how you used the glitter to create the breeze!"  She totally blew me away that she even got that! She's an amazing kid! I'm so proud.

This image is so dreamy, I love how her tail turned out and her blue hair.  So pretty, 
The buttons on the two cards above I covered with some fun fabric I found.

This card has lots of shine! You can never have too much glitter!  The flower and this button are from Pinque Peacock!  I added the yellow flower to represent the sun.

Monkeying around

This was the set for August, it took me forever to get caught up, so I wanted to share these cards now.  Better late than never right?

This is a fun set, there are so many ideas in my head for this one.
This one makes me giggle with his tail hanging over the phrase.
I used the digital papers on this one, the frame around the image and the fill pattern for the inside, love those bananas.
If you want your own set, click on the image above and it will take you right to the shop.

Fresh Brewed Designs and Eureka

I chose to use the So Thankful image, these acorns really crack me up! They are just so sweet. So I used my SIL program to print and cut them out and create the shadow image for them.
The card is a simple white card with the green paper pieces and I actually used some of my washi tape!  I have SO many rolls of tape and I forget to use it all the time.  
The bow is a piece of jute from 3 Girl Jam.
Be sure to pop over to the FBD blog to see what the rest of the team has made.  Maybe you will find a new to you image you can't live with out!

It's time for a new challenge at Eureka, this week it's to use floral background paper.
I have loved this image for a long time, I have it wood mounted as well.
digi58901 Lacy Butterfly
I used  my SIL program to add the rainbow colors to the image and print and cut it out.  I also cut out the shadow shape and the ovals to create the easel cards.
 I think they turned out so pretty!  I added pearls and gems for some bling and pretty gems to hold the card standing.

Be sure to pop over to the Eureka blog to see what the rest of the team has done to inspire you.  And as always you can click the thumb nail of the image to go shop!

Scribbles designs animal challenge

Buy Scribbles Designs here...

I wanted to show off another one of Emily's creations.  She is doing so good with her cards lately, she's just turned 5 last week.

I made this cute worm card using my SIL program to fill in the colors and created the frame.  I added some Trendy Twine for the actual line attached to the hook.
 He's just SO cute!

Pretty cards

Isn't this image just precious?  She's from Art by Miran She was a free image offered a little while ago.  The papers are from CTMH.

I love Penny Black and hedgehogs!! I seriously want one as a pet!
I kept this card simple, using glitter paper as the background paper and a fun wooden butterfly.

Fun cards

 I totally squealed out loud when I saw this file on a recent blog hop hosted by SVG Cutting files,
I have always loved Beaker. I couldn't wait to create a fun shaped card with him!

This was a free image offered by Paper Nest Dolls, I am a new fan of theirs, super cute images! I just love the faces of them!
I colored her with  my pencils and layered pattern paper from CTMH and glitter washi tape (are you proud of me for actually using some?)
 Look at that sweet face!! I just love her!

School bears

 How sweet are these little dudes?  I had a lot of fun filling them with color and patterns in my SIL program.  I added crystal effects to their eyes, noses and mouths and on the globe.
I also used my glitter gel pen to add some sparkle here and there.

 Really love how the globe turned out! Super cool!
The bow is made using ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and their awesome bow maker.

I posted this on face book a while back, sharing now for you all to see
I'm late as usual, I rarely get a challenge finished in time when MelJen's posts a free image, but I want to post it anyway to show her I'm using it. :)

I split the image in my SIL program and colored it using the patterns there then pieced the wrapper on top with the stars.  I used silver glitter glue for the sparklers.

  • 2)  You can enter up to 5 times with your NEW creations.  (no back linking please)
  • 3) If you use an FBD image, please add FBD to the end of your name
  • 4) HAVE FUN!!!

For my card I used the super adorable A+ bug
I colored her using simple crayola markers then traced her main lines with my black gel pen, this adds shine to her and made sure her facial features stood out.
 The background paper is a piece from my daughter's practice paper pad.  I found one that has the letters de-bossed into the paper and the lines are embossed to help them learn the letters and keep in between the lines. (very cool) so it adds a really neat touch to this card with it's embossed lines.
 You can see the shine here on her, I also colored over the pencil tip and the A+ as well.
 The marker is a cutting file I got from the SIL store, I used it to prop the card open.

Fun right?  I think any teacher would love getting this card!

Let's Hang out

Help spread the word!

Very pretty and simple single layer card, I used my SIL program to created all the layers then printed it together.  I added some simple chip board embellishments to finish it off.
