Birthday Bestie

Hello everyone,  

Kimberly here today to share another fun bestie with you.  How can you not love these amazing creations by Sherri Baldy.    This week I decided to go way out into left field and try a few things out of my comfort zone.   Normally, I am pretty simple with my cards, but I needed one for a special birthday, so here I go, giving it my best  shot.  

After I colored her with my Photoshop software, I put her into my Silhouette program and cut her out with this fun flourish.  I also cut out an over the same size as the middle.  After I got her cut out, I used that extra oval to  cover the center image, then used blue and yellow inks to add color to the white.  I didn't like the stark look of the bright white. 

I added blue, yellow, and tiny pink roses along with some pearls to finish her off.  Then added the Happy Birthday sentiment on a ribbon slide. 

You will find this beautiful image to add to your own collection in Sherri's Etsy Store here

First Blog Post

Hello my crafty friends!

I am excited to say this is my first blog post for SSS. :) I am very fortunate to be able to show you two cards that I made with My Besties digi stamps.
For my first card, I am using IMG734. I just think she is as cute as can be.

 The card base is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2. I colored the image with my Copics. The bottom of her dress and her wings both are very sparkly. I actually broke out my Cricut for both of these cards I am showing today. I used the Happy Hauntings for the witch and tree on this card.
If you look at the image down below, you will notice that I did cut out the bats. It just wouldn't have looked right if I tried to add them.

For my next card, I am using IMG072. Isn't she a real beauty! :)

This is an easel card. The base is 5x5 when folded. I used the Cricut cartridge Life is a Beach for the flip flops, birds, and the life guard tower. Oh, and the sand bucket and shovel too. I used the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots to emboss the sand to give it some texture. She is colored with my Copics also.

For the tip of the day, always keep a white gel pen next to you just in case you ever go out of lines while coloring. ;)

Go check out all the new release images if you haven't already!
 Also, come share what you have made on facebook at My Besties  Designs Color & Create!

I hope you enjoyed today's post!
Hugs, and happy crafting!

Cherish Every Moment

Hello everyone!  Today I have for you a sweet image from the past.

INSTANT DOWNLOAD Digi Stamps Lil Ragamuffin Justina & Frankie By Sherri Baldy Big Eye Art

I have done a criss cross design to tuck this cutie into and
also added a additional feature of another pull out for
a message to be added to.
I added the extra pull out behind her.

My cardbase measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 without any embellishments
or die cuts.

I have used the Homespun Colorbok paper pad 
for my designer papers for this.

For the sentiment I used Crafters Companion Die'sire metal die
and mounted it on a Spellbinders die from
Devine Eleoquence die set.

For the scroll at the top, I double cut the
Anna Griffin Flourish Scroll and attached to the base before
adding the inside decorative paper.

For the pull out I added a punched edge with a Martha Stewart
edge punch .
I added some flowers to make a small bouquet.  I used
small sweetheart flowers from Wild Orchards
and one Sherri Baldy
Bloomin Bestie in Pink Daisy to make a focal point in the bouquet.
I love these flowers.

I have colored Justina and Frankie with copics

Hat and shoes and Frankie:  E40, 41 and 43
Skin:  E50,51,53,33
Hair: Y00, 02, 18 and 21
Dress: RV00, 02, 10, 13 and 17
