Mad Scientist

Okay so I have a confession to make.....the entire time I was making this card I kept singing that Weird Science song!LOL!! If you have no idea what Im talkin about it was a movie that came out in the 80's where 2 nerdy guys decide one night to make a girl. Anyways....betcha thought I was gonna share some juicy deets huh!?!LOL!!
SUCKA!LOL!! J/K! Im in a crazy mood tonight...thats what bein deliriously tired will do to a girl!
Okay so onto the card I think this mad scientist Honey is sooo cute and will work for so many things! My first thought of course was for a Halloween card but it would be great for a science or chemistry teacher or for a girl who is really into science or chemistry. Goth girl and Mad Scientist Honey are available today from ATS. I had to do a Halloween card with her first though mainly b/c I had this dp I picked up not too long ago. It looks like eyeballs! I also FINALLY used my large scallops die from PTI! Yayy me! I used SCS sketch challenge for my layout. You can check out the other DTs creations using Honey here.
Stamps: mad scientist and beaker w/eyeballs-CC Designs
Paper: PTI true black, white, Cloud 9 design Luster eye see you (guess it is eyeballs!LOL!) Just looked at the name of it!LMBO!

Gothic Honey

I know its been quiet this week on my blog again but I have something to share today...something spooky!LOL!! ATS is having another digi release this Friday with some spooky and cute Honey images. Gothic girl is up first. I wanted her to have some pasty purplish skin so I colored her skin using e000, v00, and v01. So after I gave her pasty purplish skin I had to give her some purple hair!LOL! I used v04, v06, v15, and v09 for her hair. Since I colored her hair and skin tone purple I figured I better start digging through my dp and see if I could find some dp to match before I finished coloring her!LOL! I found this dp from Recollections I got at Michaels last Halloween and it was perfect. I wanted the purple panel to have a little something extra so I used the skull accessory digi image and copy and pasted it to make my own dp. I also gave Goth girl a little batty friend b/c every goth girl needs a bat friend right?!LOL! Be sure and check out the other DT previews on the ATS blog and check back Friday to see what else Honey is going to be getting into this Halloween!
Stamps: CC designs digi stamps goth girl, bat, and skull
Paper: PTI true black, white, Recollections dp
Accessories: deckled rectangle nesties, sanding block, sponge, dimensionals

Back to School Emma

Its Frriiiddaayyyy!!LOL!! and its digi release day at ATS! I used school Emma on my card for today. I also used the pencil image for my strip that I just LOVE how it turned out (dont ask why!LOL! I just do!) This card is waayyy busier than my norm. It started as a layout from last weeks Friday sketchers and then just turned into something else....and that's ok when it still turns out good!LOL! I used the DCWV dp again with this card and some PTI poppy ribbon and blue buttons. The only thing Im not wild about is the sponging around my image. I used PTI new leaf since that's the cs I used and matches the dp but the ink is wayyy darker than the cs so note to self...DONT use new leaf ink for sponging!LOL! Okay if you cant already tell....Im super tired and silly since I've scheduled this post and am now running on pure exhaustion!LOL! Im ready for a restful weekend. Hope you have a good one!

Fall Brigitta

Im so ready for fall!! I thought if I made a fall card it would help speed it along!LOL!! I decided to make this card for todays SCS versamark wt challenge. I used versamark in my fave way which is for backgrounds! I stamped the linen background onto old olive using versamark. I used some MME dp not sure the name since it was scraps and paired it with ATS Brigitta with sunflower image. I sponged all the edges with antique linen ink and distressed a few edges. The layout is from Jens sfytt and I even left off ribbon on this one....mainly b/c I just couldnt get it to work in anywhere I liked!LOL!

I tried out another new hair color combo and I LOVE it!! A great honey brown color! I used e97, e99, e37, and 39 (very very little). Other colors I used are
bg000, bg72, bg75, yr12, 15, and 16 for her shirt. Pants and flower center e43, 44, 47. Shoes and flower petals y21, 32, and 35. Stem and leaf yg93, 95, and 97. Thats it for me today! Have a great one!

Olivia First Kiss

My card today has my FAVE Sarah Kay image! I needed an anniversary card and I think this sweet image is perfect for an anniversary card especially paired with the fun heart dp in Olivia Basic Grey dp. I distressed all the edges and sponged them with SU sahara sand ink. I used todays SCS sketch challenge for my layout. I love this layout! So fun to work with! My card came together so easily today and I'm very happy about that. I needed it! This class this year is kickin my butt! Woooweeee!! Between the 20 (including a VERY active set of twins!) in my class and my 3 here at home Im a tired Mama at the end of the day!LOL!!...okay so back to the card...Of course the image is colored using my copics listed below and I sponged around my image using sahara sand ink while still in the label nestie. Have I said yet how cute this image is!?!LOL!! Denise (peanutbee) is the reason for my collection of Sarah Kay images she colors them sooo beautifully so I used her card here as my inspiration for coloring. If you get a chance to browse through her gallery she has some GAWGEOUS Sarah Kay cards! Have a great day!

Back to school

Its back to school time at ATS today! I used to love back to school time. New clothes and all the new school supplies like crayons and pencils!LOL!! I've used the apple and crayons image for my card and made a CAS card (for me!LOL!) here. I colored the image using copics and paired it with some DCWV dp. I added some sponging to the edges of the image using SU bashful blue ink. I also added some piercing for a little something extra. I finished off my card with a bubbly bow using PTI poppy ribbon and a PTI button. Check out the other digis that will be available on Friday the 20th here!

Lime Rickey Bomb

Its Sunday so you know what that means...another Kenny K challenge. This week is Team B (my team) and we are up with a bold and bright challenge for you. When I think of bold and bright this BG Lime Rickey dp always comes to mind. I love the fun and funky colors and patterns in it. I paired the dp with Kennys Da Bomb image. This is my first time coloring her up. I just love her shoes! I used this weeks SCS sketch challenge for my layout. A great layout and I finally used my EK Success spiral punch. The "right on" sentiment is from TGF's Anya says sentiment set. I even pulled out my library clips. Now head over to the blog and check out my other DT members fabulous creations!!

Girl and Birdhouse

Last night I just wanted to sit down and color with no colors or sketch etc in mind. Just to sit down and color. I pulled out some of my neglected Sugar Nellie images. I have been so intimidated by this image!LOL!! I did have a blast coloring it last night and even got a WOW from my hubby. Im sorry but I didnt write down any colors b/c I wasnt sure if it was going to make it onto a card or not. This image is so large I just matted it on a kraft card base and added a Quickutz photo corner with pearls colored with copics. Well that's it for me today. Sorry for such a quick post but I am ready to put my feet up and relax!LOL!!
ETA: OMG! I cant believe I didnt know about the Elisabeth Bell DT call!! I love her images just like the one I used here! I was browsing through some blogs and seen where a friend of mine posted the badge on her blog and was soooo excited until I saw the deadline was only 1 hr away!! GASP!! How lucky was it I just colored this image?!?LOL!!

Starfish Emma Mermaid

Today is going to be a quickie post...I am tired!LOL!! Today was a rough one at the PreK. Hopefully by the end of this 1st week things will be alot better.
I made this card for yesterday's featured stamper challenge. Vicki was the featured stamper. I cased her card here. I was inspired by the colors but changed them to PTI colors hawaiian shores, spring moss, and berry sorbet. I also used kraft for my card base. I also kept Vickis layout and decided to go with no dp again on this one. For my main image I just had to use Starfish Emma. Isnt she a cutie?!? Love her! She is available now at ATS and they also have a new Sugarplums kits coming out!!! I colored Emma using the PTI copic trios for the colors of cs I used. For her hair I used e35, e57, e59 and e49. I used the cool grays for the rock and e40-e42 for the sand. I also used some images from Kim Hughes Ocean Friends for the waves and seaweed. If I forgot to list anything and you would like more deets just send me a quick email or ask me a question in the comments. Have a good one!!

Summertime Donna

Its Sunday so you know what that means....another Kenny K Challenge! Team A is up today with a "in the summertime" challenge. I could not resist playing since I've been dying to use this DCWV citrus stack dp and I thought it was perfect for this challenge. Im still playing with some of Kennys Gothik Angelz and colored Devlish Donna with copics. I've also been on a stickles kick lately!LOL!
Okay so a little info on this card...I started with Donnas hair and Im going to be honest w/you and tell you there are sooo many colors on here I cant even remeber what I used!LOL! I kept trying to get it just the way I wanted. She was so fun to color! I also got to use some new SU goodies. I used daffodil delight cs and ribbon on this card. After I had the card put together I thought it need something so I went back and added some paper piercing and lines to match the background in the dp. Its really hard to see in the pic but behind the flowers has line and dots and I TRIED to mimic that on the sides to give it a little something extra. I really wish I would have used yellow instead of red but I didnt have a daffodil marker! Sorry I dont have the copics listed if you would like to know the colors I can try to figure out what I used. Have a great day!
