Disco Fever


So, if you're reading my blog, you know I did a pictorial colour-along with the recent TrooBloo Subscription image from Bloobel Stamps.  This is Disco Fever and she should be available for another couple of days.  And... more importantly, she's made it to a card!

I've made a large center-step card and used some beautiful Creative Basics dies for some extra pop.

The "Bling" crystals are from a dollar store find.  The papers are from my never-ending stash.

Copic Colours Used can be found in an album for the Disco Fever girl on the Bloobel Stamps Facebook Group page.

Another Colouring Pictorial

This time I'm using Disco Fever which is the March image from the TrooBloo Subscription package. She will be available 'til the end of March. You can see the last image and post that I did here.

I will just be doing "basic colouring", nothing fancy... but that curly hair lol.  So many ways to do curly hair but I will show you how I do it on this image.

I'm hoping to even make time to get her on a card.  Don't hold your breath or run any bets tho' [big wink].

So won't you grab this image/subscription in the Bloobel Store and come join us in the Bloobel Stamps Facebook Group?

Copic Earthtones

Well, the best laid plans... often go awry lol.  I didn't have a plan for colours when I set out, but I had decided to stick with just the Earthtones.  If I do them again, I will soften the shirt colours.  I did "cheat" tho' (okay, read: wasn't thinking lol) and added my standard BV20 to my skintones and R20 to the lips.  If I was re-doing, I'd stick with the E93 or 95 on her lips with the E04 and I'd change up the BV20 for E71.

Easter Parade of Hats

It's the beginning of a new month with another Progressive Challenge at Bloobel Stamps Facebook Group.

This month we have a whole Easter Parade going.  Lisa couldn't just stop at one image, she gave us 6 to choose from!  I chose Easter Parade Judy and then got her a little sidekick called Easter Parade Marty (the cat).  The twist this month is to dress up/add to those hats.  So, I added a little duckling peeking over the top of Judy's bonnet and maybe hoping that sly cat doesn't see him.

If you didn't play in the previous month's Progressive Challenge, you can still 'buy your way in', by purchasing one of the specific images (the Easter Parade crew) and colouring it up and entering in the Facebook Group.  You can see all the images in the Bloobel shop here.

Copics Used:
Judy -
E50-51-21-11-BV20; E93-RV11; R20-E04
G20-43-C3; C00-1-3
YR02-07; Y11-08-17-26
Marty - 
N1-C7-W4-T10-E35; E93-W4
E93-E04 (nose)
Ground and Background -
E42-43-44; Y00-02-"0"

That's it from me for now.  Hope to see you join us in the Bloobel Stamps Facebook Group and also the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group.  Always lots of fun and inspiration happening in these groups.

Cleaning Claire

Let me introduce you to Cleaning Claire.  She is one of the Angels Hearts n' Memories exclusive new releases.  Angela actually inked up these cuties herself from just sketches!  I don't wanna know the process... I just know it's not as easy as "etch-a-sketch" lol.

So I've created a fun fold card with some heavy decorative paper from my stash.

The cardstock and stamp are from Stampin' Up; the small sentiment inside is computer generated by me and punched out with a retired Stampin' Up punch
Die cut Flowers - Heartfelt Creations

Coloured with Copics:
E50-51-21-11-BV20; E93-RV11
E41-42-43; E34-37
