Outlawz Guest Designer

I was excited to be asked to be a guest designer for Outlawz challenge this week on the Twisted Thursday theme-Anything Goes with option of feather or fins. I opted to go with Fins! I colored up this new stamp I got from Whimsy Stamps!. Isn't she adorable.


I colored it with my Copics and pair it with some papers in my stash. I used my Lawn Fawn dies and stamp pads for the sponged background.

Greeting Farm Card

This is what happens when I go through my stamp boxes. I try to declutter every 3 months but sometimes it just results in me getting distracted and excited to find the old stamps I forgot I had lol. I stamped up a bunch of Greeting Farm stamps. 

I colored this one up with my Copics. I often get asked do I pick paper first or color and 90% of the time I color first and then find paper to match which is what I did this time.

I even took out my embossing folders and my Spellbinders dies for the scallop circle behind her.

13th Birthday Card

I am still in shock that I am officially a parent of a teenager.  She is my one of my greatest joys even when she is telling me "Come on Mom, go away!!!!"  She has always been a creative soul so she appreciates my projects so I decided to make her this card.

I have been subscribing to the Kit & Clowder Art Classes so this month's class was just perfect for using for her card.  I have also had this digital stamp from SOG in my stash for awhile so thought it would be good to finally color it up. I have another one I am working on for a dear friend of mine 40th so hope to show that one soon.

Folio Notebook Holder

So I saw this awesome and pretty easy Folio Notebook Holder on YouTube by CherishUrmemories that I decided to do last night. The album is 10x7.  I received some papers and embellishments in a swap and decided to use them to create the outer cover.


'
On the inside, I have two mini notebooks that I covered with some Crafts & Me images. On the bottom I created a pocket for business cards and then a mini-waterfall effect and added another colored image I did from Crafts & Me. 

The other side is bare because I still need to get a notepad to put into it. Off to Walmart I go.

Here is a close up of the two images I colored up with my Copics.
