Good Wednesday Morning All!!!!!

Happy Day to you how is everyone today???  I think today is the day we will start to get back in the swing of things after the big Thanksgiving Trip and visiting and coming home.  Willow stayed home from Pre-K yesterday and stayed in bed most of the day with a Tummy Ache but today she seems all better so that is a good thing!!!!!

So today I have two cards to share with you one for Flutter By Wednesday and one for Whimsical Wednesday - "The Diedrich Dare"  Flutterby today was an open challenge so we could create anything we wanted to, and Nicky drew the sketch for Whimsical this week.

To play along with Flutterby Wednesday make sure to make a creation with a Butterfly, Fairy, or an Angel and link it up to our Flutter By Creators Blog (Danni) we are getting ready to launch our very own Flutterby Challenge Blog at the beggining of the year so that is very very Exciting News!!!!  Then you will link right up to the Challenge Blog Yea!!!!!!!

The FlutterBy Wednesday Design Team:

So here is my Flutterby Card for the week.

I got out SU! Card Stocks in Only orange and Bashful Blue and the orange layers are CB embossed with Swiss Dots, and Seeing Spots embossing folders.  The nesties cut outs are labels #1 and the Flutter By's are punched with a Martha Stewart Punch.

I actually got this stamp and 3 others for Piper for Christmas because she loves to stamp too and they had a little girl stamp named Piper I showed it to her on the Internet and so I got all 4 of these and as far as she knows they are all Piper stamps!!!!  She will love these crazy looking Crafting Kimmie Stamps!!!!!

I colored up my image with these Copics:

Skin:  R00, E00, E95, RV21
Dress: YR00, YR02, YR09, YR68, 0
B21, B24, B18
Dolls:  RV00, RV02, RV06, YG00, YG03, YG09, E50, E51, RV00
Hair:  Y21, Y26, Y28

Here is the side view so you can see all the dimension.

Now onto the next task of the day.  My Whimsical Wednesday card!!!!!  I know my sweet Mega talented team mates also have lots to show you today so stop by and visit them for some wonderful Eye Candy!!!!  We have said Good Bye to Team Mate Lisa Slusser and today we are adding a new Team Mate Kris to our team so I get to be on two teams with Kris now Flutter By and Whimsical!!!!!  Welcome Kris!!!!!

Now here is Nicky's ultra cool sketch for this week we hope you play along and link your creation up on the Diedrich Dare Blog just make a project using the sketch and link it up to play along this week we have had some amazing participants the last few weeks!!!!

So here is my Project for today (Yep I used one of Piper's stamps again, but it is O.K. they clean so pretty she will never know I could not resist using a couple of them before I wrapped them!!!!).

I had to use this image because 7 year old Nicky loves loves loves Frogs and Green so this ones for you Nick!!!!!  I used SU Card Stocks in Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Gable Green, and Green Galore on this card.

I colored my image up in these Copics:

Skin: ROO, E00, E95, RV21
Dress and Frog:  RV00, RV02, RV06, YG00, YG03, YG09
Hair:  E30, E35, E29

I used my Nesties label 4 and to cut the Shapes, CB embossing folder Seeing Spots again to add the texture.

I added some bright round and star shaped buttons where Nicky wanted to make sure we knew the sketch had buttons (So Cute Nicky LOL) and I added some sheer shimmery Organza Ribbon to the top and bottom of the card for that part of the sketch and of course I had to use more frogs to finsh off the sketch at the top!!!!  Oh I also distressed the edges of the darker Pink Card stock with my kitchen knife too!!!  LOL!!!!

Well Tucker has been playing oh so sweetly while I have typed up the rest of this post I did not already have saved from when I started it yesterday so I must go play and read books now!!!!  Such a fun job being a Mom!!!!  I love spending time with them all!!!!

Have a very very Stampendous Fluttering Sketchy Wednesday my friends!!!!!

Mercy said...

heather...these are so stinkin' cute! your coloring is simply wonderful, and i love the bright and cheerful color combos you use! amazing samples, kiddo!

Christine said...

Love your cards with those crazy looking girls. Your little Willow seems a little crazy (in a good way) herself so I'm sure she'll like them!!!


Randi said...

So cute Heather!! I love these Craftin Kimmie images. The little frog border you made is sooo adorable!! I love the bright oranges and pinks you used, too!! I love how you do the different layers of textures with the same color cardstock! Very cool!!
Funny what you said about the hair coloring! I teach both ways in my class. I tell people to use which ever they are comfortable with. I do both, but my fav, especially if I'm in a hurry (which is almost always), is to start from dark to light! ;o)

Sandra MacLean said...

Oh Heather!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I looooooooooooove your card today!! All that pink and green in one place and the cutest little image! I've been eyeing those images and I think I have to break down and get myself one! Love that little face of hers!

Shesjetlagd said...
