TSB Sponsoring For Fun Challenges

Hi all! The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the For Fun Challenges this week and the challenge is to use bright colors (even neon if you'd like). My card however, is not one of my better ones. I was babysitting all day today and was able to color up my image there but time did not allow me to construct something better. Annika over at Another Messy Crafter blog had a fantastic tutorial on how she colors clouds with copics. I decided to give it a try. It's nowhere as good as hers but I plan on practicing to get better.

Sorry for the short post...going to fall into bed now. Thanks for stopping by

Peppermint Kisses

Hello. Hope everyone had a great weekend. The challenge this week over at Bella Digi Studio is to use velvet or flocking. I've never used flocking before so I ran over to AC Moore and picked some up. I used the freebie that was offered and is part of the July new releases. It's called My New Coat and she's just adorable, isn't she??? I decided to use a winter theme for her. I colored her with Copics and added some white glittery flocking to her ear muffs, fur on the coat and around her boots. I added some distress ink around the image with spun sugar, then went over that with barn door. I used a rubber stamp to emboss the design on each side and used fired brick distress embossing powder. I made the circle sentiment myself and added some peppermints with a Martha Stewart punch.

Please stop over at the challenge blog and see what the other DT members have done and leave some love. Thanks.

Happy Monday!

Challenge Monday at Bella Digi Studio

It's Monday and time for another challenge over at the Bella Digi Studio challenge blog. This week's theme is..."Oh Girl" and we were asked to use a girl or fairy image. I chose to use the Piddle & Diddle image from the Little Wings collection. I just love this image and it was so fun to color. I used copics and lots of stickles on the image. The papers are from K&C Company. The die cut border is from Marianne Creatables and I weaved some ribbon through it. The circle sentiment is from Cat's Life Press rubber stamps. Be sure to stop over at the challenge blog and see what the other DT members have made and leave some love. There are also some fabulous new releases over at the digi shop so check them out too! You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs :D

Baby SIhower Card

Hello everyone. Hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I unfortunately, I have to work most of today and am not able to attend the baby shower for my daughter's friend. I did find time last night to make her a card (and a diaper cake too...more to come on that). I found this great vintage pram digi over at The Sketching Stamper. She's has some really great images there. I bought two other ones that I can't wait to play with. The sentiment inside from Create with TLC was cut with my Marianne's Creatables die. I distressed the edges with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I created a card box to put it in. The sentiment is from Scrap Sisters and the flowers from Wild Orchid. The hearts are a Martha Stewart punch. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs :D

Bella Digi Studio Challenge #6

Happy Monday! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. It's time for the Monday challenge over at Bella Digi Studio. I have the honor of being this week's challenge boss and chose to use distressing as the theme for this week's challenge. I used the Dee-Dee image from the Little Loves collection and the sentiment is from the Gimme a Hug collection. She's colored with Copics. I used distress inks on all the edges. The flowers are from Wild Orchids. The paper is from K&C Company. I also used DCWV cardstock and craft paper and the leaves were made with a MS punch.

This Week's Challenge at Bella Digi Studio

Happy Monday everyone!! Hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend. Monday brings us another weekly challenge over at Bella Digi Studio. The focus for this week's challenge is to use chalks. Now, I've never used chalks before and just happened to have a sample of the Colorbox Chalk I received with one of orders from Creative Play Stamps (they always throw in a little freebie everytime I've ordered from them). Tammylee over at the Bella Digi Studio Challenge blog has a wonderful tutorial on using chalks to color your images. Unfortunately I had to work all weekend and my card creating time was very limited. So, I wasn't as creative and only used the chalk around the edges of my paper and images. The image I used is Daisy - in Pigtails and Tutu from the Little Bits collection. She's just so sweet sitting on her mushroom. The sentiment is also from Bella Digi Studio. The butterflies were made with my Quickcutz die.

Be sure to stop over at the challenge blog and see what the rest of the talented DT has created. Thanks.
