Unusual Wedding Card and Baby Card

I made this card for two teachers that will be getting married in a few weeks.  They occasionally wear capes in the classroom to get the kids attention, hence the superhero wedding card.  Very different card, but suits them.  He is quite a character.  The images are from Mo's digital pencil and the digital papers were purchased on Etsy.  The images were colored with Copics.  I haven't made cards in so long.  It was like learning all over again!

This card was made for a teacher at my school,  His wife is due to have a baby this week.  I chose this image because our school mascot is a dragon. I wanted the sentiment to say "Welcome Baby Dragon."  My husband didn't like that idea at all.  Once I brought it in to work they seemed to think that would have been a really cute sentiment.  Oh, well! The image is from Cuddly Buddy Crafts.  It was also colored with Copics.

I'll have to check later today to see if I can find any suitable challenges ,

Birthday Card for Erin



 I made this card for our Office Manager's birthday.  Our gift is a bunch of Starbucks cards.  She loves Starbucks.  So I decided to do a cup themed card to go with the gift cards.  The tea cup digi was a freebie at Beyond the Fringe Crafts.  I chose five different digital prints from Carina Gardner and made them smaller.  Then I printed the card images over them.  I also printed two sets of plain white cups.  One I used as a base and the other I cut out the white portion of the cups to paper piece.  I used the a full size Carina Gardner print for the background paper.  This was actually quite a bit of fun!

This adorable image, Angelica at the Hop, is from Inky Impressions, and is available here.  This card gave me a major workout.  I have so much difficulty with the Silhouette.  It took me two days and nearly throwing the Silhouette out the window before I finished this.  I do feel like it was worth  the effort.  She is "dang cute."  I colored her with Copic markers.  The digital papers are from Basic Grey.

Inspiration Destinatiom #40


This week's sponsors at Inspiration Destination are Pattie's Creations and the Stamping Boutique and as always the theme is Anything Goes.  I chose this cute image from Pattie's Creations, Wooden Shoes with Tulips.  I colored the i,age with Copics.  I had an absolutely terrible time photographing this image.  I guess the lighting must have been off.  Most of my images ended up blurry,  The ones that weren't appeared to be very bright.  The shoes are not actually the electric blue depicted.
