The Stamp Fairy Challenge

It was COLD out today so I spent some time in my craft room! I decided to join The Stamp Fairy challenge this week, which ends pretty quick here so I better hustle!!! LOL The challenge was mostly white with a little bit of colour, so this is what I came up with, using Lenny Ladybug.
The card base is white CS and the next layer is Real Red (SU). I ran the one white layer through my Swiss Dots folder in my CB.

Anyway, that's all, I better go so I don't miss the cut off!!!! Wish me luck again!!! Happy Saturday!!!

A Spoonful of Sugar challenge...

This week I am entering a notebook into the Spoonful of Sugar challenge for their Anything but a card challenge. I made this for my principal who wanted a custom made notebook for her sisters birthday. I had made her one at Christmas time.

The paper is SU, and the images are digi, from Chi Chi Memories. The little fish are a cuttlebug die. I coloured the image with copics then added chalk for the water and crystal lacquer on the bubbles and her goggles.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT weekend!!!

This week at Simon Says, we have an awesome challenge for you! If you head to the CHALLENGE BLOG, you will find out that the challenge this week is TO CREATE YOUR OWN EMBELLISHMENTS!!

I decided to make my own flowers, so I set off to You Tube to find some funky flowers to make and I found this one:

You Tube Video Tutorial

I used my SU flower punch and an EK Success retro flower punch. I punched the flowers out of the same DP that is on the card but you can't tell after I sponged all the edges. Anyway, here is my flower I made (10 layers!!!):

And here is my card:

I used SWEETHEART BIRGITTA from CC Designs and coloured her with Copics. The DP is from a DCWV pad I've had for a few years, and the CS is Elegant Eggplant. The ribbon is a sheer white from May Arts. You can get all of this at Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!

This week, the freebie this week is a Spring bouquet from Designed2Delight. I had a vision for this card and it didn't quite come out how I wanted it to! Ummm, not really sure what is up with this one....LOL... all I know is I don't really like it. Sorry! I THINK it might need a piece of DP between the light green card base & the pink layer, that might tie in the scallop ovals.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Incy Wincy Designs challenge .... COLOUR ME WONDERFUL

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy Designs is called COLOUR ME WONDERFUL. We are asking you to colour with your FAVOURITE medium - whether it be Copics, Promarkers, pencils, Twinkling H2Os, watercolour, distress inks, chalks, etc.

For my card, I coloured with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol. This parrot is from Aspire to Thrive Children's Charity and you can get him for only $1.50. Isn't he great?!?!?

I made a gate fold card - which was actually a pre-made card from a pack I got at Michael's. I just added some scrap DP to the sides and a sentiment!! Here is a picture of it opened:

The Corrosive Challenge Blog - SKETCH TIME!!!

This week at The Corrosive Challenge blog, we have a great sketch for you to try! Here is my card using a SWALK stamp called MY SISTER. You can get it at Simon Says Stamp. There are 4 stamps, unmounted, for only $4.99....and they are all SOOOOOO cute!!!! I have a few, and I really like them!!! More are on my wish list!!!

The card base is a pre-made one from a box from Michael's & I just found card stock bits to match. I coloured the sisters with Copics. This card is for my sister who has moved to Australia, so I kept it pretty simple and flat for easy mailing!!

Head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT have created for you to see!!! AND I hope you will join us this week! You can win great prizes this month if you do!!!!!

I am entering this into the Creative Card Crew Challenge - for a loved one, I think it fits perfectly with it!!!
