I cut several of the rolling pin dies, colored with Copics, and choosing the best one for the top, layered them with foam tape for dimension. You can't really tell in the photos, but I also heat embossed the top layer with clear powder for texture and fun! Thanks for looking!

This week's Melonheadz Friends challenge is to use 2 or more designer papers. I used shades of blues from Doodlebug and October Afternoon for my boy birthday card. The adorable baseball player is from the Sports, Franklin Lewis (black/white) set.

I colored his uniform in Mariners colors and gave him number 34, Felix Hernandez, my grandson's favorite player. :)

Clear embossed the image after I colored it with my copic markers and added the rub-on numbers to his jersey. So much fun! I know Feliciano will love it.

My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge 222

I used this week's sketch challenge design to make a belated birthday card. Completely spaced on a friend's birthday (I think she'll forgive me; she knows I also have 6 family birthdays in March as well as hers!) Anyway, here is my card. I didn't stray much from the sketch, actually.

I used elements from three My Favorite Things die sets, plus a partial sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set.


Foam tape lifts the stars for dimension, and sequins add texture.

My Favorite Things, Color Challenge 18

Couldn't wait to use the adorable kitty dies and stamps by My Favorite Things, from the I Knead You set. Isn't he so sad, lying there all forlorn. :( Poor, sad, kitteh.


He has a soft, cushy rug to lay on, though. ;) I used a narrow oval to create the rug using pattern paper in the colors of the challenge. After coloring my kitty with copic markers, I heat embossed with clear powder.

Of course, I had to cut several and layer them.....that's just how I roll. Foam tape rules!
