Some Odd Girl Digi Release: Jump Rope Tia

I cut my digi out using my Silhouette Cameo. I decided I wanted to paper piece her, so what I did was open up all the patterns I wanted to use and then I layered her on top of each piece and hit print (she measures at 3.75"). I then fussy cut, the pieces I wanted to use.

Skin Tones: FS1, FS4, FS7, FS9, PP1
Hair: TN1, EB1, EB2

FUN Birthday Wishes & PPPR Files!

Hello Everyone, It's my day to post over at PPPR!! This is my first post on my blog today, check back at 8:00am to see my Some Odd Girl creation.
 I have recently been selling my creations at my place of work and my customers have been requesting birthday cards, so for this card, that's what I focused on.
Well I have one down in the books, now I just have a bunch more to create lol.
I used the adorable Juggling Clown Cutting Files, you can find him in the $0.99 section of the store.
Juggling Clown Cutting Files
I used the print and cut feature in my Silhouette Studio designer, to cut out this adorable little guy. I decided to add some shading/shadowing to his face using my IG1 Spectrum Noir marker. I wanted to add more dimension to him, so I added some homemade enamel dots, for his juggling ( Thanks for the idea Lisa) :) I also added some glossy accents to his nose and popped up and layered some elements on him.
I have been hoarding these big metal letters for awhile now and thought this card would be perfect for them. My sentiment is from Scrappy Mom Stamps and is called, Simple Sentiments. I finished it up by adding some ribbon, Lemonade Yellow, Timeless Twine and a button from my stash.
I hope you all enjoy my fun birthday card and thank you for stopping by!!

YNS: Fun Friday: Heard you're egg-specting

Hello Everyone, TGIF :) I hope everyone is finally getting to experience some nice weather? We reached 69 degrees on Wednesday and my little boy and I spent all day outside, I got sunburn, don't worry I needed the color. Any-who, let's get on with my card. I used the adorable digi stamp "Chirpy", which is available over in the digi section of the YNS Store.

There are so many different ways you can go with this image. I figured though since there was a bow around the egg to go with a baby theme. I colored my image using my Spectrum Noirs:
Chick: LY1, LY2, LY3, PP1, OR1, OR3
Egg: BT1, BT3, BT4, BG1, BG3
Bow: PP1, PP3, PP4
After I got everything all colored up, I added some glossy accents to my chick's eyes and the spots on the egg.
Sentiment: Sugar Pea Designs: Tweet Friend
Papers: American Crafts: Dear Lizzy, Neapolitan & DCWV: Black
Ribbon: Offray brand
Brad: My Minds Eye
The rest of the embellishments are from my hoard.

 For my card, I used the photo of inspiration provided by YNS
I didn't necessarily go with the color theme but because the photo was of eggs I thought this image fit into this photo perfectly.
Before I let you all go, be sure to head on over to the YNS Blog to play along in this months challenge, we always love seeing what everyone creates.
Hope to see you all join in have a great day and be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow for the PPPR Baby Shower Blog Hop!
