Fishy Notecard

There may be a time when you need a fishy notecard.  If there is, you can easily use a balloon die to make the fish.

This card is a result of me just playing around with some supplies, using them in unexpected ways.  If you'd like to read about this I made the fish with Distress Oxides and two quick cuts with my scissors and the underwater scene using Distress should swim on over to the A Jillian Vance Design Blog today.  You'll find all of the details there.

WELCOME to Unicorn Street!

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, unicorn, welcome home, Copic markers, rainbow
It's time for another Tiddly Tuesday on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  The theme this month is Anything Goes, so you really have no excuse to not particpate.

This card features a digital image from the Tiddly Inks set Lovely YOUNicone and Unicorn.  I printed the unicorn onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the unicorn with Copic markers.  The letters are from a Penny Black alphabet stamp set and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The "welcome" sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and was also stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I added a strip of washi tape near the bottom and a few white sequins to complete the card.

At first glance, this card might not make any sense.  The reason behind the card doesn't make any sense either, but it is a real situation that angers me.  A co-worker of mine, in order for her family to remain together, had to seek residence in Canada.  The new administration terminated the immigration program that allowed her husband to live and work in the US, and he was ordered removed.  He had been working in this country for several years.  The reason there is a unicorn on the card is because she is moving to a street called Unicorn Street. 

Canada, you're awesome.  The US right now, not so much.

Patriotic Celebration

AJVD, Kecia Waters, patriotic, celebrate, red white and blue
A week of patriotic celebrations.  That's what's happening all around.  I will probably stay in and read, lol.  And shelter my Sloopy from the booms of the fireworks.

You can read all about this card today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.  Go.

Baby Girl

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, baby girl
Whenever I have a baby card to make, I always "reach" (or should I say find the file on my computer?) for Tiddly Inks for cute baby images.

This card features the Tiddly Inks digital image of Baby Girl.  She's just precious, don't you think?  I printed her onto X-Press It cardstock and colored her with Copic markers.  I fussy cut her and placed her onto a patterned paper cardfront (no clue the source).  The cover-up die is from My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.   I added three pink enamel dots to the design because they were amazingly the perfect match.

Did you check out all of the loveliness for Fab Friday?  Check out the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for some beautiful Tiddly inspiration!

Tennis Ball

Jessica Lynn Originals, Kecia Waters, dachshund, Copic markers

This card features an adorable dachshund image with a tennis ball.  It is an oldie from Jessica Lynn Originals.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I paired this image with a sentiment from Gerda Steiner Designs.

This card served as this year's Father's Day card to my Dad.  My Dad has a tennis ball that Sloopy desperately wants but cannot have.  Mind you, there are other tennis balls for her.  But she wants the one my Dad uses for exercising his hands. 

He loved the card.  He seemed to get a kick out of it.

Leaves as Trees

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Prismacolor pencils, sympathy
I love stretching my supplies and using them in unexpected ways.  Here you will see a leaf image acting as trees in a distance.  They were colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The sun was sponged with SeaShells Conch Shell dye ink (yes, I still have that brand...this is my favorite yellow). The hill was drawn with a Micron pen.

You can read all about this card today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.

Thanks for dropping by this blog.  Have a pleasant week.

Fishing Expert

It's time for another Tiddy Tuesday.  We have a color challenge for the month.  Go to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all of the details and join in on the fun.

My card features the adorable digital image Wryn Fishing Expert.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops and Nuvo Glitter Drops to the fish (I couldn't decide which to use so I used both, lol). The sentiment is from a set from Taylored Expressions and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  Can't have enough birthday cards, right?

Don't forget to head on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  You'll see there are a couple of very talented guest designers playing in all the fun.
