ay hey!!!!!!!!! Hello everyone! Howdy I should say, right? : ) Let’s get in the Western mood! We are opening the salon's door for all that would like to join us over the Greeting Card challenge at the Outlawz!

I am so glad to be part of the Outlawz team. If you need a place for inspiration…and have a little fun you got it. Everyone is very friendly and eager to help you with the newest technique out there! I hope I will see you there soon!

Yiihahhha! Let’s brake down my little western themed birthday GilliCowgirl_OutlawBirthaycard!

CowGirl Gilli was colored with copic markers. I added just a little touch of stikles to her star…she is the law! Winking smile. I wanted a look that was country but not too deep…so I added some lace to create a romantic girly country fell. The distressed  look was created by using Distress inks from ranger. All the “lace” was made using Martha Stewart punches. I am not sure if I was super successful building a leathery frame around Gilli base….well that was the idea..I kinda liked it lol. Of course a country look asks for a little jute…and there you go! I draw the balloons and colored them with copics. I wanted them to have a dimensional look so I cut them and  used foam tape and added the cords which Gilli happily holds. I skipped the gloss this time, although I love using that.

My Dp papers are from Lilly Bee Design and Bo Bunny. It is so hard to find deep colors these days. I got lucky with these pads.

So this week try to make some time and grab your gear and make a project!

Don’t forget to share your art with us at Greeting card Challenge!

I will see you soon…if I don’t freezzzzzzzzzzeee first LOL.

Off to see what the fireplace can do for me!




How about a hug?

arlings!!!! I have missed you! I have not see you guys for a while LOL. Well that is how it goes. We get entangled with daily tasks and the poor blog suffers lol

But here I am with a new project to share with you! This project was inspired by the new challenge over The Outlawz at the Greeting Card challenge group. Sending an hug and lovin’. Isn’t that theme cute? : )

So I am going nuts on the red here with my new project…: ). I was thinking on which image to work. I wanted to show I was with my open arms Gilli ballons_XOXOready to give all my friends a hug…so Gilli Balloon was super perfect for it!!!!

As you can see Gilli lost her balloons…and ta da! How about a hug?!

Easy right? I told you! you can use these babies for any occasion…I will repeat like a parrot lol.

I colored Gilli with copic markers. Yeap…fearful red…one of the hardest color to conquer lol…I will keep on trin’ lol..but I like this result…Remember if you like to learn how to color with copics. I highly recommend my dear friend Suzanne’s classes. She is an amazing teacher and you will learn a lot you will see your copic skills getting better and better!

Gilli ballons_XOXO aiAll the punches used in this card are from Martha Stewart collection. The little lace oval and the side swirls were created using the silhouette die cutter. All pieces were distressed with Ranger Distress inks and touched with a little stickles. Paper from LilyBeeDesigns.

I hope you enjoy the hug! I cannot wait to get one from you!

See you soon with another new project!
