For my first project I made a shaker card.  I am sort of obsessed with these lately and want to make even more of them!  I used a sheet of acetate for the window and added some pretty pink and red sequins inside.  Heart Locket Marci is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares for even more added dimension.

My second project features one of the adorable panda bears from the Key to my Heart set.  He is also colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares.  I added the die cut wings behind him so that he looks like a furry little cherub!  I used the pierced scalloped circles die to create my own heart shape peeking out at the top of the card.

A Year's Worth of Krista Smith

Hi there!  Happy 2019!  I know I've been quiet.  I needed a bit of a break from blogging.  I needed to recover from the holidays!  Lol  I love them, but I feel like I'm non-stop from October through December!  

At the end of 2018 I said good-bye to two of my design teams.  My term at Some Odd Girl was up and I stepped down from Make It Crafty.  I adored being on both teams but working a 40+ hour work week and having all those deadlines was starting to catch up with me.  

I am hoping that a little free time in the new year will allow me to really focus on my remaining design team and to have a chance to finally share all of those OTHER cards that I make throughout the year.  I always seem to have a backlog of them.

Today I'm going to catch up on some Saturated Canary/Krista Smith projects.  I literally have a dozen of them to share with you!  This first one actually goes back to 2017!  I'll be darned if I can find any of the other specifics now, but the image is called Beach Hat.  All dies used are from La-La Land Crafts.








Here is a card for a tea party themed birthday and a girl who loves donuts!  Talk about going straight to your hips!  I can't remember the name of this image, but I think it was something along those lines.  Again, all dies are from La-La Land Crafts.  The chipboard sentiment is from Make It Crafty.






Another birthday card here.  I saved this one as Cozy Lights, but that may or may not be the name of the image.  I literally have over a thousand Saturated Canary/Krista Smith images and sometimes it's hard to keep track!  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts. 





Here's a cute winter themed one I made for a ski bunny, which also the name of the image.  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts. (Are you beginning to see a pattern yet?!  Haha!)





I've been experimenting more with some clean and simple style cards.  Here is one such attempt using Lisa's Giraffe.  The chipboard sentiment is from Make It Crafty.





This was a good-bye card for a coworker.  Though she wasn't even alive yet in the 1970s, this 70s Vibe image captured her beauty and spirit perfectly!  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts.





This darling birthday card was for a sea lover.  Sweet Sailor Girl was perfect.  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts.





And then we have one for a golf lover using Tee It Up.  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts.  (Incidentally I seem to like this paper for this image as this is the second time I have created a card pairing the two!)





My easel card using the Pitcher image.  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts.




This is my son's birthday card from last year.  He is Fortnite obsessed and as soon as I saw this piƱata Die-namics from My Favorite Things Stamps I knew I had to buy it and make a Loot Llama to go with this image from Krista's Patreon subscription.  The stencil is also from MFT Stamps and the other dies are from La-La Land Crafts. 



Almost done...  

I made an anniversary card for a baseball fan using Spring Ball.  All dies are from La-La Land Crafts.





And finally, a sweet, simple birthday card using Dreads.



Phew!  We did it!  Thanks for sticking with me until the end! I hope you have enjoyed the cards.  If you would like to acquire new images from Krista so that you can color and create, be sure to check out her Patreon where you can choose from different tiers.  Patreon is great site because it gives fans of artists a way to support their favorites and receive exclusive content in the process!

Look for more projects from me using Krista's work in 2019!  Have a great weekend!

Have you heard the great news?!  This month's club kit is super adorable!  Telephone Marci is too cute with her retro phone!  Who remembers rotary dials?  Yup, I just dated myself big time with that one!  I remember stretching that phone cord to it's absolute max as a teenager!  Ah, the good ol' days!  There's a bit of fun nostalgia in Marci and her cuddly panda pals from the coordinating Great News set!

And let's not forget about the awesome sentiments and dies!

Sushi For Everyone!

Hello!  I am popping in with a quick share of a card I made using an image drawn by my crafty friend and Some Odd Girl design teammate, Cristina Valenzuela!  

A few weeks ago I saw one of the drawings she had done for the Inktober challenge.  We were to be celebrating my brother's birthday in a Japanese restaurant and since he loves sushi, I thought the image was perfect for him!  I messaged Cristina to ask if she would allow me to color her drawing and use it to make his birthday card.  She graciously agreed! Here is my creation with her art!



Want to color this adorable sushi for yourself?  Head over to the Copic Spain blog to gobble up this yummy image where Cristina is offering it for free!  You can find it HERE!

Products Used
