Thank You's using TGF Flirty Anya!

Here are some Thank-You's that I made for my Mom and Mother In Law for the wonderful Birthday gifts that they sent to me! Thank you! I started out with TGF Flirty Anya and colored her with copics in the C range. I wanted to add a splash of color, so I thought coloring the flower in her hair in the shades that I wanted would make it pop.. I cut the image out using the Beaded Oval ( THANKS CINDY!) Nestie die from Spellbinders. Added some ribbon and prima's and WhoooLa! Loved who these turned out. Simple, but cute! The Pink/zebra theme is for my Mom And the Green/polkadot theme is for my Mother in Law.

Cinderella and Prince Charming.. TGF style...

I made this card to enter it into TGF Royal Challege Contest. This weeks theme is fairytale. I thought that this adorable stamp from the cake topper set would look cute to use as Cinderella and Prince Charming! I colored the image with copics.. in fact I searched online for pictures of Prince Charming so that I could color his clothes the correct colors! :) The castle was cut using my cricut and the Once Upon A Princess cart. The Carriage and the glass slipper were also cut using my cricut and the Happily Ever After Cart. I embossed the inside layers and the tag using my cuttlebug and the D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I tied some tulle on the front and attatched a crown charm. I used Diamond Stickles on the image, castle, sentiment, carriage, & glass slipper. The sentiment is also from TGF cake topper set. Thanks for looking!

KennyK Devilish Donna

I have recently discovered KennyK and I am in LOVE!!! LOL! I just love the style of KennyK stamps!! Here is a card the I created using Kenny K's Devilish Donna stamp. I colored her up using copics and adding stickles to give her wings some sparkle. I LOVE hot pink and Lime green so, I decided to use those 2 colors in creating this card. I used lime green leopard print paper and and hot pink cardstocked. I distressed them by tearing and inking with Tim Holtz Distressing ink Black Soot. I also layered some on the spaces with star lace paper. I made a "pocket" and pull tag, and this is where I will sign the card. The Skull and "Girls Rock" were cut out using my cricut and the Rock Princess cartridge. The flowers are from Prima and I added stickles to them as well.
