SC359 – Yule Dragon

Christmas, Dragon, The Paper Studio, Third Coast Stamps, Winter, Yule No Comments »

I created this card for today’s sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  Not sure what you get a dragon for Christmas, but whatever it is, it probably needs to be fireproof, huh?

After coloring my little guy with Copics, I cut him out to pop him up for a more 3D effect.  I then colored his tail one more time and popped that up again.  The snowflakes are made of foam and the paper is from the Paper Studio.    Stamp:  Third Coast RS

Supplies:  Stamps:  Third Coast, Foam Snowflakes, Blue Jewels, Blue Brads, Foam Tape.  Paper:  The Paper Studio.  Colored with Copics


In a Sweet Pea Dream #9 :: Under the Sea

I created this card for The In a Sweet Pea Dream Blog Challenge, Under the Sea.  This is an image by Jennifer Nilsson called Sea Dragon.  He is absolutely adorable, and if you haven’t seen her other stuff, you should head over to Sweet Pea Stamps now and check it out. 

I had a different idea in mind when creating this card. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it measured out the way I wanted so had to change my plan.  The bottom panel was created using designer paper by Creative Imaginations and cutting the squares of the shells out to create my tiles.  The background paper is from AdornIt.  I cut out the sea dragon and popped him up to add some dimension, however, since he wasn’t the easiest to cut out, I don’t know how soon I will be trying that again!  The little star fish are real.  I buy those at a shell store in St. Augustine. I then added the charm and rhinestones and a little bit of stickles around his “gills” for some sparkle.  Hope you like, thanks for stopping by!

 Arrrghh!  Ahoy Mateys!  I made this card in honor of today being International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  I admit it, I love pirates (especially of the Johnny Depp variety). I also love dragons, so when I saw this adorable little guy by Lisa Victoria over at Sweet Pea Stamps, I had to have him!  I popped him up on his little pirate ship to give him a little more dimension, added a charm, just keeping things kind of simple.  Hope you enjoy my little pirate dragon (or is that dragon pirate?)  Here in Florida…’thar’s a storm brewin’, so I’m gonna go batten down the hatches and then imbibe vast quantities of rum.  (Just kidding about the run….maybe ; )
