Make It Crafty Guest Designer: Coffee Love

Hey there!  Some days require more coffee than others. (Some require wine, but that is a story for another day!)  Like when you stay up hours past your bedtime crafting only to get up extra early to cook a big breakfast before the first day of school. Yup. That was me today. And I will have consumed copious amounts of coffee before it's all over! I prefer mine iced (no matter the weather) and so I thought today was the perfect day for Frappe Delight as my Make It Crafty guest designer project! This gorgeous caffeinated creature is from Krista Smith's Funky Girls collection! You can find her HERE in the MIC shop.  

 She is colored with Copics and fussy cut. I layered her up with lots of die cuts and fun coffee themed embellishments.  The sentiment and several of the dies are SugarPea Designs.  On this card I've used stamps from the Caffeine Addict and The Perfect Blend stamp sets.  Dies are the Coffee To Go Cup, Heart Beat, and Coffee Words.  With the exception of the FishTail Flags Banner (My Favorite Things), all the other dies are from La-La Land Crafts.  This card features Open Heart Doily Border, Heart Doily Border, Heart Fan, Owl Love Tag, Stitched Nested Circles, and Coffee Beans Heart.  I added a touch of Wink of Stella to her whipped topping and Glossy Accents to her cup and glasses.

Copic Colors:
Skin - E51, E21, E11, E04, E00, R20
Hair - E79, E74, E70
Clothes - R89, R83, R81, B37, B34, B32

Make It Crafty Guest Designer: Magical Stuffie

Oops! I'm late! Here is my card that was supposed to be posted on Monday! I had a fabulous weekend away at the beach, but it has thrown me all off! I did some coloring while at the beach house and this cute lil fella was one of the images I worked on! Meet Unicorn Stuffie (an extra image included in Unicorn Dream) from the new Dreamy Wishes collection by artist Krista Smith. He is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added Goldenrod Stickles to his horn and horseshoes.

I decided to make a shaker card which was super fun! I used some circle dies, card stock, foam tape, and an acetate sheet to construct my window. Before sticking it on my card, I filled it with these pretty iridescent sequins. Adhered to the front of my window is one of the fabulous MIC chipboard layered words. I covered the base in white craft ink and colored the top layer with a Copic marker. Dies from La-La Land Crafts and flowers from my crafty stash complete the card. 

Copics Markers Used
N0, N2, N4, N6, BG10, BG72, BG75, R24, R27, R29, R81, R83, R85, V17, V25, BV000, Y32, Y35

Wonder Woman

HelloI am finally finding time to share a card I made a while ago after going to the theater to see Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot!  I was giddy the whole time in the theater as I laughed and cheered and gasped my way through the film!  Wonder Woman has always been my favorite super hero and to see her brought to life so beautifully was amazing! I have to admit I have a bit of a girl crush on Gal now...  Lol

When I went home after the show I immediately printed and colored Wonder Regan from Sassy Studio Deisgns.  Yup, you read that right.  Wonder Regan.  She was a custom digi that Lindsay created for me during my design team days.  It has been a while since I colored a Sassy girl, but it was so much fun and brought back fond memories!  SSD was my introduction into digital stamps!  (And look where that got me!  Lol)

Wonder Regan was colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added Golden Rod Stickles to her outfit trim, belt, cuffs, and tiara.  She is popped up on foam squares for dimension.  I used a few of my La-La Land Crafts dies on this card.  Featured here are Skyline Border, Star Border, Sunburst, Book Brackets, Arrows, Bursts, Fancy Numbers, Happy Birthday, Happy Stitched, and Photo Elements.  The paper and flowers are from my stash.  And the Wonder Woman emblem was a tag I saved from some pajama bottoms I bought!!  Recycle, reduce, reuse, right?!  Lol

This card went to one of my son's friends for her birthday.  Now I am waiting {im}patiently for the movie to come out on DVD so I can buy it and enjoy watching it over and over!

Hey there!  Popping in with my Make It Crafty guest designer post for this week!  Did you all join in the fun at this weekend's Dreamy Party on Facebook?!?!  Three gorgeous new Krista Smith images were released and it was epicVisit the MIC store to purchase the whimsical ladies of the enchanting Dreamy Wishes collection for yourself!  Fairy Wishes, Mermaid Sparkles, and Unicorn Dreams will steal your heart!  

Though I have colored one of them up for a future project she is not quite ready to share so today I am showing off Bridgette in Love.  She was so much fun to color with my Copics!   I just love her outfit!!!  Because she's wearing a Winter hat and with the colors I selected I decided she needed to grace a holiday card and chose my embellishments accordingly.

The image is cut and matted with Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The rest to the dies are from La-La Land Crafts.  Here I've used Reindeer 2, Fancy Doily Border, and Snowflake Border.  The flowers and jingle bells are from my stash and the branches are a Martha Stewart punch.

I was beyond thrilled when Zoe contacted me to ask if I would like to join the team for a couple of months! It was a no brainer that I say "yes", of course! I was also ecstatic to see that Make It Crafty was featuring a new collection of digis from one of my favorite artists: Krista Smith! If you haven't seen the Funky Girls Collection yet, you need to pop into the MIC store ASAP! 

I opted to work with Beautiful Sonia for my first project.
