Birthday: Dead in dog years

Hello everyone!

Here's my smart a** birthday card in Celebration of Simply B Stamps blog birthday. For this card the the challenge was to make a "Smart A#$ card! Meaning make a card suitable for that smart mouthed person in your life, nothing sweet out of these packed with attitude images! Make it funny, sarcastic, just not sweet and endearing!  Heehee I don't use profanity "in person" but I had fun with that sentiment... it's not mine I found it online.

I used Corinne digi which was given away last December for Corinne's birthday. You can get it here:

 I used colored pencil to color the door which was from digi darla's and Corinne was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the wiener dog is from the Silhouette store. The sentiment I typed that on my computer using Open Office as well as the chat/thought bubble.  
I had a rough time trying to complete the cards... you all know family life... When I start to get lazy everyone is chillin' as soon as I head to my crafty corner everyone wants to be hungry, poop, fight, argue, get hurt, whine and bug. LOL It happens to me every time. BUT all in all it was super fun creating these cards and I'm so glad some were already colored from before or cut out since I love fussy cutting my images. Thank you for stopping by. Katya Bess

A Teen Dark Knight's Birthday

Hi back again!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic day. Just posting another card I created this week using another Simply B Stamp. Joining Day 16 Challenge with Corinne Jones and Sharon Brown I chose the second challenge: For Teen Scene Hollywood: We were to recreate a movie scene on our project.

The stamp is called Christian the Dark Hero and you can get it here:

I love Batman movies and my favorites are the newer Batman versions especially The Dark Knight. In this scene The Joker crashes a party then grabs Rachel and tries to intimidate her with his knife and tells one of his thousand stories of how he got his "smiley face" but then Batman (Bruce Wayne) comes to her rescue. The Joker of course always wants Batman to take off his mask.

Since this is a more kid friendly image I felt like the party should have more kid friendly beverages and decorations. I fast drew the party scene myself since I couldn't find a table digi background that wasn't girly or too much stuff going on. Drawing my own backgrounds and elements is another favorite thing for me to add to my cards or projects. I colored the background with Copics and Batman with both Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. The Sentiment, I found online but typed it up on my computer and cut the endges to make it look like torn edges. I hand cut up an image of a bat then inked the edges to make them look like sharp edges... this is my version of a Batarang. Silly, I know. LOL

Hope you like my creation. Thanks for stopping by,

Bond Girl Birthday

Hi Everyone!

 The image I colored a whiiiile ago but finally made it into a card. I'm sharing this card for "Birthday Celebration Day 20 with Corinne & Sharon." Betty and her DT gals are having fun challenges all month long. The challenge Show your favorite technique and anything goes as long as you use a Simply B Stamp.  (Easy enough right?) The prize is for $10 Gift Certificate to Simply B Stamps store. This one is drawn by Alicia Bel for Simply Betty Stamps.
I love these stamps! the Bond girl is from Simply B Stamps (Retired image in digi form Betty has them back Saturday June 29th through July 3rd in collection sets) but the background is from Make It Crafty. I created the sentiment on my computer and just added a little glitter with Copic Atyou pens. The image was colored with Copic and Spectrum Noir Markers. My favorite technique is merging stamps or adding a background. Thanks for visiting. I hope you liked it. Katya Bess Entering my card at:
