Even Mermaids Drink Coffee

It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is ATG - Anything Goes!

Our sponsor for this challenge is LeAnn's World 101 and the lucky winner will receive 2 digis of their choice!

I chose to work with Mermaid Coffee for this challenge 'cause seriously, who doesn't drink coffee?!.
I used Copic markers to color the image and a white gel pen to add some accents along the way.  I pulled out my coffee rim and coffee beans stamp and used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to ink them up.  I added some brown ribbon and blue pearls to finish it off.

This image is Kalani  and I colored her with Copic markers and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut around the image.  I used papers from my stash and I tried to match the colors as best I could.  I added some bubbles using Tiny Bubbles by Altenew and the sentiment is from the Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments by Memory Box.

Wild About You

 It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is CELEBRATIONS!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Design and the lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice!


This "wild" image from SheepSki Designs is called Tropical and my celebration is "love".  I colored the image with Copic makrers then used the Tropical Leaves stencil by Lawn Fawn to create the background with Distress Oxide Inks then sprayed with some shimmer spray.

The sentiment was made using Wild About You die by Hello Bluebird.  I used the die several times with just white cardstock to add layers to the top layer created using patterned paper from the Itsy Bitsy Spider collection by Piggy Tales.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Santi Beaches and Patterned Paper

Patterned Paper is the theme for our July challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   

Our challenge will run until July 12th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

The very first Design Team I worked with was Dude Time Doodles (unfortunately no longer operating) and they created some very funny and unique images and this one is no exception.  The image is Santi Beaches and is one of my faves.

Birthday Focus

 Hello all! I'm back with one of my creations using another freebie from the Capturing Fall Collection by Kate Hadfield Designs.

This was a fun, quick and easy card to build.  After coloring the image with Copic markers, I fussy cut then added foam tape to the back.

The sentiment was computer generated and after I cut it down using Stitched Rectangular Dies by Paper Rose Studio, I added blue Washi tape to the ends and placed the camera in the middle.

Tropi-Bloom Thank You

 Hello all! I'm back with one of my creations using Tropi-Blooms by Kate Hadfield Designs.

I colored the image with Copic markers then went to work fussy cutting as my Silhouette didn't behave properly and fully cut the image :(

After that was done I used the "thanks" die-cut by Simon Says Stamp multiple times then glued them all together for some extra dimension.  I applied foam tape to the flowers down then glued the sentiment in the center.  To finish it off I added some black Nuvo drops around the image.


Make sure to check out our Gallery for some inspiration from our members and fabulous Design Team!
