Button Sunglasses


I had a secret pal several years back and she sent me a card with this stamp and she had put the cutest sunglasses on the top of her head. The stamp has sunglasses but I loved the 3D effect of the button. So I began my search for buttons that were shaped like sunglasses. Those were not easy to find! I finally found some a few weeks ago and I knew I had to try it to see if I could pull it off.

I snipped the back off and glued them on and I love it! I bought 4 packs of buttons so I'd have 4 of each color. Below you can see the package with the different colors.

Photo Kaylee


Photo Kaylee is so cute and I had just the DP to go with her. I have had this paper forever! You can't see it but I even used some glossy accents on the lens and flash so it looks real!

This is one of my favorite cards from the summer so far. This stamp is from The Greeting Farm. I used some old DP I had in the closet. I have so much DP and I keep buying more. I could probably quit buying and have enough to last for the rest of my life. Does anyone else have that problem?

Cheers Kaylee


I purchased some digital images from Some Odd Girl and this is Cheers Kaylee. I used my Copic markers to color this one. I didn't have the color to match the paper so I combined red and orange to get close. I also made it so it looks like she is wearing Yellow Box flipflops, my favorite!

Sketch Challenge from Some Odd Girl

Reading Sketch Challenge

Today when they posted the sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl I knew exactly what I was going to do! Yesterday I bought my first digi images from them and printed them out. I don't have a huge selection of Copics yet so shading colors is a bit difficult. So I pulled out my old colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I had forgotten how much I love images colored that way. You see, I can't stand to see color lines on anything I do and the mineral spirits just smooth that away.

I love this card more than anything I've made in a while! I also love the digi images! I could make them any size I wanted! I find that most of the images are the same size when I purchase stamps and I find that I use the same layout over and over. So this allowed me to play around a little! I did notice just a tiny bit of running of the black line but it was so tiny that it didn't make a big difference, just helped to add some shading. I'm anxious to use the printed images with my Copics and see what happens. I printed them out yesterday so when I use them the ink should be set in and I shouldn't have trouble with it running at all!
