Harlow’s Birthday Cake

I was going thru all my pictures of my cards that I had created in the last month, and realized there are a few that I did not post.  This card being one of them.  I made this card for my granddaughter Harlow for her 8th Birthday.  Teal color is her favorite color.  

Birthday Cake


The stamp set is from Stampin’ Up!, Happy Birthday To You.  I colored the cake with Black Widow color pencils, in Harlow’s favorite colors.  I went over flowers with clear Wink of Stella for more sparkle.  Keep checking back I have a few more projects I found that I have not posted yet.

Thanks for stopping by!

Zany Zebras

Are you feeling a little zany staying home yet?  Me not so much.  But I have some Zany Zebras from Stampin’ Up!.  These zebras are super cute.  I added a little color to their stripes with my Schpirerr Farben color pencils. They are colored very lightly its hard to tell in this picture.Zany Zebras

The Peek a Boo windows is a die from Whimsy Stamps.  The Water colored paper I think is from Catherine Pooler, but I could be wrong?  It was mixed in with some of her other paper I have.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hippos FMS#443

Hello Stampers!

This weekend I have been working on different challenges. 

Today’s challenge sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches

This one really had my creative juices flowing on how to use it. 

Here is the sketch:

FMS 443

To start I choose to use Birthday Brights paper pad from MFT

Then I added the Happy Hippos, also from MFT

I colored the hippos, balloons, and cake

with Schpirerr Faben colored pencils on Neenah White 110. 

The sequins are from a set called Artistry Blooms Sequins from Stampin’ Up!.


It’s hard to tell in this picture but,

I also applies Clear Wink of Stella to the blue ribbon on the cake.

Today I am working with a fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

This was the first sketch they published when they first started.

They are using it again for their birthday.

   Happy Birthday! Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is the sketch:


Here is my take on it:

Water Plushies

I used the new Designer Series Paper Whale of a Time and

Rainbow Glimmer paper by Stampin’ Up!. 

The cute little sea creatures are from Clearly Besotted,

called Water Plushies, they have matching dies.

  I colored the little plushies with colored pencils. 

I used Prisma color, Castle Art, and Schpirerr Farben color pencils. 

I love to color with pencils!  I am still working on my shading and blending.
