Baseball Betty




Hi Everyone, well it's Monday again and that means Sandra Caldwell's release day. I am using the image called  #719 Baseball Betty for my card, I just love this sweet image and you can find her in the shop today. I have colored her with Copics. For the card, I used Real Red card stock, then used a layer of white card stock and embossed it with large dot embossing folder, then used my red maker to make the dots into baseballs. I then put another layer of Real Red card stock at an angle then mounted Baseball Betty onto that piece. I die cut out the bat, glove and ball from a Sizzix die, then mounted them onto the card. Thanks for looking.

Back to School

Well I know a lot of friends that have young children going back to school this week or so, as they are in the states, here in Ontario Canada the children don't go back to school in September right after labor day. Anyway I have made this commemorating the event.
This is Mia Going to School from Sasayaki Glitter,  I have colored her with copics, For the background I used Distress inks to make the rainbow of colors. then embossed it with an alphabet embossing folder. I then used a stamp from Stampin up from the Word play set, cut it out and placed it on the bottom, then used another set for the greeting at the top was from the Stampin Up set called Express yourself. It is on a wooden banner, and added the arrow for a fun embellishment, and to relate to the bottom greeting.
