Today for the McMahon Five Designs Flashback, I am sharing a card I made using the Studio 313 Princess Cupcake digital image.

Princess Flashback M5D Danielle

For this project, I started out using some gorgeous Neenah Classic Linen Epic Black cardstock for the base.  The cupcake image is colored using a combination of Crayola and Prismacolor colored pencils and then embellished with i-Rock gems.  I also added a line of hearts which are from the K&Company Sleepy Tree seasonal paper pad and the word Princess which is from a sheet of 12×12 High School Girl DCWV cardstock.  The heart is made of felt and popped up, and it is from my stash.  I  used the Art Deco Corner Chomper to add a little interest as well and round the corners.

Hope you are having a wonderful day, and please stop by the M5D blog to see the rest of the DT’s work here.

Perfect Weather for Coneflowers… July 19, 2013

Well, we have been in a heat wave here in the Great Lakes state.  I, for one, am ready for this heat to break and for some cooler weather to roll on in!  However, coneflowers love this kind of weather.  They thrive in it as a matter of fact.  Most often, they come in red, pink, purple, or white and they are drought-tolerant.  They are a casual flower, and one of  my (many) favorites!  I think they are bright and cheery.

This week for McMahon 5 Designs Flashback Friday, I am using a gorgeous coneflower image.

This image comes with some digital sentiments as well, and here is the card I created using the coneflower image and one of the sentiments.

For this card, I printed the image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, and I matted it with Neenah Classic Linen Epic Black 80# cardstock.  This is the first time I’ve used Copics on the Solar White cardstock, and I must say it is very easy to use with Copic markers.  They blend quite easily on this cardstock!  And what is there to say other than the Epic Black cardstock is just a joy to work with.  It cuts like butter and is a true black.  I rest of the paper I used is from my stash – the card base is purple Recollections cardstock, and the pink paper is from ATD’s Serendipity paper pad.  I used the Card Creator A2 Matting Basics Sets A & B to cut out the image, its mat, and the sentiment.  Then, I used my Perfect Layers to cut the mat around the sentiment since there was not a die cut that would make a narrow enough band around the sentiment.  The gems are heat-set i-Rock gems in three different sizes.  The image is colored with the following Copic markers:  E19, E57, G14, G24, RV02, RV06, RV55, Y18, and YR07.  After coloring the image, I added some clear sparkle with my Atyou Spica pen.

Hope you are staying safe if you are in an area experiencing the heatwave!  Please stop by to see the rest of the Design Team’s creations on the blog if you have a chance.

A New Challenge Card September 5, 2010

Here is another challenge card.  This one is for Michelle Perkett Studio’s Tuesday Challenge #43 and for Carly’s Sketch #10 D2D Sponsored Challenge.  For the first challenge, I had to use a Michelle Perkett Studio image and use a summer theme.  Carly’s challenge was of a sketch, and I flipped it because of the orientation of Michelle’s image.

For this card, I used paper from my stash.  I cut out the shapes with my Large Oval and Large Scalloped Oval Nestabilities.  I also colored the image with the following Copics:  0, B63, BG05, E00, N2, N3, N5, N8, RV25, V01, and Y35.  I made the stitch marks with a white gel pen, and the clear gems are I-Rock hot fix gems, and the purple gem is Jolee’s Jewels Swarovski Elements hotfix crystals.
