QKR Stampede Challenge #244

It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week our optional twist is "Things With Wings".  I chose Dorky Bird (isn't she ADORABLE?), which I imported into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out.  I colored her with copics, white crystal drops for her pearl necklace, star dust stickles on her head and tail feathers, and a yummy drink in her "wing" from Jolee's Boutique.  I bought a pack of tropical paper from JLaurieStudio on Etsy and this background was in the pack...isn't it AWESOME and perfect for this "Dorky Bird"?!?!  I added glossy accents to the glass and clear wink of stella to the umbrella and lemon.  The sun was cut out on my Cameo.

QKR Stampede #243

It's Friday and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede!  This week our optional twist is "Graduation".  I chose Cap, imported into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out, and then colored with copics.  My good friend, Rhonda, let me borrow her Sizzix Framelits Drop-Ins to create the frame and congratulations for the card.  I used foam and an acetate sheet from Queen and CO, which I cut out twice for thickness to make into a shaker card.  CS from Hobby Lobby, confetti and glitter from my stash, and Darice Graduation Cap embossing folder used on the gold background (it's there under all the confetti and glitter!).  This will go to my niece when she graduates high school in a month.
