Be sure to tell them Jeanie sent you!

Now onto my card for today.....this time it's a pop-up card, but no twist to it. Again...good ol' YouTube gave me this idea!

As you can see, it's a pretty clean and simple card. See the star in his hat? That wasn't there in the dog's hat, but it does come with the set. So, I thought I'd just add it in! And it fit perfectly! I just love those paw prints, too! They're so tiny and cute! And a perfect fit for the index finger! I don't have a small acrylic block....where it went I don't know....but my finger did just fine. 

I cut out the candles with my Silhouette, and also the leaves on the sides. Dogs love the outdoors, and our dog continually picks up leaves and brings them in the house. So, hence the leaves. Lol. The printed paper is from Graphic 45.

Be sure to check out the other Designers projects! They are awesome and very inspirational! Here are their links:

So now let me show you the 1st of my 3 projects. I decided this little guy needed more than "just a card", so I ended up making a Pop Up Twist Card. These are very popular right now and there are all kinds of YouTube tutorials in making one. Here it is:

I so love this cute set! You see all those little paw prints? I actually used my finger and put the stamp on my index finger rather than an acrylic block. Worked like a charm!

I  hope you enjoyed this! Be sure to stop by the blogs of the other Design Team Members! You'll get a lot of inspiration and ideas! Here are their links:

Outlawz Feb 21st Color Challenge!

WHAT DAY IS IT?? It's a new COLOR CHALLENGE day over at The Outlawz! Woot! And again, this month our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.
Prize: 5 Digital Stamps - Yay!

Now here is the photo inspiration, picked by fellow DT member, our very own Ursula. Great, huh! I decided to go for an anniversary card this time around.  

Again, for this project, I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out my card. Every cut out you see here I cut using the machine. Then all I had to do was distress the edges, stamp my sentiment, adhere them to the card base, and add my embellishments. It turned out so much better than I thought it would, because I was unsure about the colors to pick from the photo inspiration.

I'm so glad you stopped by! And I hope you decide to join us in our this week's challenge! You just might be a winner! (In our eyes...everyone is a winner, though!)

Wow! What a great group of sponsors we have! Be sure to check out their links!

Now, onto my project. The image I chose for this project was the 1960 Coutoure Hat by Rick St. Dennis (found in his Zibbet store). I loved doing this image. So here it is:
When I started this project, I had somewhat of an idea as to what I wanted to do with her. But with Mixed Media...anything can happen! You can start one way and end up a whole new way. This time, however, for the most part, it ended up being what I intended it to be.

I started off by priming the canvas with Gesso. While that was drying, I cut and colored my image with the Prismacolors. I then set her aside and began putting layers on the canvas using tissue paper and a brown paper that had small slits in it, simply to give it some texture. I mod-podged those on. I dried that with my heat gun and then hot glued some butterflies on in the right side toward the bottom of the canvas. I got out my Gesso again and covered everything with it. After it was dried, I took red and black acrylic paints, watered them down, and splattered bits of paint all over the canvas. I took a rose trim, hot glued that around the edge of the canvas and started to add my embellishments. I made a "hat pin" for the hat and added a big "bling" to the bottom and to the right of Miss Couture, and lastly I added a beautiful black applique fan to the canvas. The applique was made by Kimberly of KPKre8tions

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will join us in on the challenge this week!
