Dragon – Pull My Finger Slider Card


Hi There!

I made this fun card using the High Hopes Rubber Stamps – S222 – Dragon Finger a while back, but never got around to posting it. LOL! So here it is now.

As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew that I had to have it to make my dad a card with. When we were little, he would always tell us to pull his finger and then he would toot!!!! LOL! He would then laugh at our disgusted looks. But it always brings back fond memories. He’s older now and still hasn’t changed. LOL! I think that’s why we love him so much. Our dad has always had a great sense of humour.

I used the stamps to create a slider card. On the front center panel I used the dragon the first sentiment from the same stamp set.

 

Here is a close-up:

On the right panel, I used the sentiment from the stamp set “Pull My Finger”

On the left panel, is the result of the question and answer from the first 2 panels. Just look at the big grin on his face. Just like my dad’s.

Here is a close-up:

 

Put all 3 panels together and this is what it looks like when you pull it in both directions.

 

My dad loved his card and I hope that you do too!

Happy New Year Card for Vet


Happy New Year’s Everyone!

Just completed this year’s card for the vet for New Year’s from Boo! I saw this stamp from the Paper Shelter Happy Meow Year – Digital Stamp and laughed. I knew I had to use it to make a special card from “Boo” our beautiful little lady.

All images were coloured in with Copic alcohol markers. I brought in the background paper and then merged the digi onto it using Adobe Elements.

Here is the front of the card.

Kit and Clowder – November 2016 Markers Class


Hi There,

Sharing with you my finished Christmas card after completing the November Markers class from Kit and Clowder. Image is called “North Pole” by Polkadoodles.

Here is a close-up.

For this project I used all Copic markers. Alyce from Kit and Clowder also teaches you how to use alternative markers as well. Which I really love, since I also have the full Spectrum Noir collection.

I had a lot of fun doing this class as it taught me a lot of new techniques. I especially loved learning how to colour the snow as I love making wintery scened Christmas cards. 🙂

Also, loved learning how to do the sky.

To frame the image I used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. One of my all time favourites. Then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon to go around the border to deepen the colour.

Added in a little glitter to the snowy roofs and snow on the ground, just because I love sparkle. LOL!

Hope you like it!
