Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

If Friends Were Flowers

I am really late posting this.  As I mentioned before I’ve been pretty busy with work and a sick family to deal with.

Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project with the theme “things with wings”

 

We are being sponsored this whole month by Bugaboo Stamps who is one of my personal favorites!

Here is my card this week, using one of their ever cute stamps

003

 

I colored the image with copics and added a little glitter to her wings.  The DP is from Basic Grey’s Ambrosia 6×6 paper pack just a scrap piece that was in the package.  I added some pearls, a button and twine from my stash.  I used some Tim Holtz distress inks to dress it up a bit.  I hope you enjoy it and be sure to stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also enter this week’s challenge.

Owl Card

Yay! It’s Friday!  That doesn’t really mean that much to me, since I work weekends and shift work so I don’t have a weekend in the traditional sense, but hey! I’m excited for you if that’s how you roll :)

It’s a brand new challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges this week.  Let’s think outside the box and come up with some unusually shaped cards..anything but square or the traditional rectangle.  The DT has some great inspiration for you on the blog this week.

Here’s mine!

002

I decided to break out my Wild Card Cartridge and one of my favorite ones on it is the Owl.  So I cut it out usual some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper.  I’ve had it forever in my stash!  I then added just some stickles for definition because that paper is pretty loud…LOL

It’s just a simple card because I am sending it out in the mail for an RAK so it can’t have a lot of embellishments on it.  I hope you like it.

Stay tuned because we’ve got some changes coming up in May on the blog.  Fun Fun Changes. :)

I used one of Wendy’s colored images for you this week.  It’s the Fall House image which I thought was really pretty.  I then paired it with the fall sentiments.

 

 

 

 

With the image I used some paper from Basic Grey.  I inked it with some Tim Holtz Ranger Ink in spiced marmalade.  I used a border punch as well as a Sizzix flourish die.  The sentiment is cut out with a Stampin up Punch.  I also added some ribbon and bling from my stash as well.  The big leaf is from Walmart.

I hope you like today’s card.

Sweet!

Happy Halloween to you all!  I hope you have lots of fun in whatever endeavours you plan on to celebrate today.  We are taking our little guy out tonight trick or treating.  He is very excited! Our little pirate received a pardon from the crown and is now a muskateer….translation…it’s too cold out tonight for him to just wear his pirate costume so we had to improvise with something he could wear over his coat :)

 

Today is a new challenge on the Penny’s papercrafty blog…it’s all about BIRTHDAYS!  Show us your birthday creations.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge. That’s right, one lucky random person will win 3 digi images from My Heart Pieces and one lucky random person will win $10 gift certificate from Dustin Pike (aka Doodle Dragon Studios).

I am highlighting an image from My Heart Piece’s called Ice Cream Cutie

I used some papers from the Basic Grey Koshi line.  I am almost out of this one….:(  The image was colored with my copics.  I used a fun border punch I’ve not used in awhile and the bling is from my stash.  The ribbon is Stampin Up as is the Sweet Sentiment.  I hope you enjoy it.

Get Well Soon

Hello again! Two posts in one day…wow! Going from not so busy to busier than a bee.  We have a new challenge over at Penny’s Paper Crafty this week which is being sponsored by multiple sponsors, one of which I am highlighting this week…Dustin Pike.

I am sure that you’ve seen these adorable dragons all over blogland.

I decided to make a get well soon card as I’ve not done one in awhile and you just never know when one comes in handy (like for your son’s preschool teacher who’s home sick :) )

 

As you can see, I used the Basic Grey offbeat papers again.  I thought they were kinda upbeat and cheery for a get well card.  I paired the image with just a great stamp from Michael’s that I got, again in the Spiced Marmalade ink.  I added some ribbon and a border punch as well as a little heart button from my stash.

I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to enter our buttons and/or ribbon challenge at Penny’s today for your chance to win one of several great prizes!

Merry Christmas

Hello All!  Back to the creative grind again after a successful weekend at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.  I got a lot accomplished in terms of new Christmas Cards for my upcoming craft fairs, had a lot of fun with my friends Kathy & Lisa and the swag bag was amazing.  I will post that a bit later.

It’s a new challenge at Use it Tuesday this week. Our theme is all about Orange…we would like you to create a project using orange in it.  It could be halloween, thanksgiving, or anything else.  In my case, it is Christmas! :)

I challenged myself to make a Christmas card with the unconventional color of Orange ..so here we go.  All the DP is from my stash.  I am thinking I have some BG Jovial in there from a couple of years ago.That tells you how long I hold onto all my paper…LOL  The image is from my image bucket and is Stampin up.  The snowflakes were originally plain chipboard and then I covered them with glitter and added bling.  The lacy ribbon and twine are from my stash as well.  I hope you enjoy it and I hope you will stop by the blog and check out all the really great projects we have for you this week.  Don’t forget to enter the challenge and be sure to let us know which stashy or hoarded items you used for your project!

If you are looking for the LC blog hop please click here.

Yay!  It’s here the new August Release for Digital Delights!  It is also my first post and creation as a member of their DT so I am just really excited!  So this month Wendy has an awesome birthday collection! Oh does this have a lot of fun images….Josh, Josie and Maycee are all here for the fun.  I am only showing you what I was lucky to work with for the release but you absolutely have to stop by the blog and check out what everyone else has for you….oh there are a lot of fun projects!

So my image for you this month is Pressie Josh.  He’s so excited! He just cannot wait to open his present…and I paired it up with the new Birthday Sentiments…

In my ever ongoing quest to use up my stash, I came across a birthday kit that I had bought ages ago from Hot off The Press…it has a lot of fun papers and art to go with it.  I colored him with my copics and did a little paper piercing around the edges.  I added some doodlebug brads, american craft ribbon and basic grey bling.

I really hope that you like my first endeavor with DD and please stop by the blog and see the rest of the release which you can find in the store here…you won’t be disappointed and don’t forget to stop off at the other blogs and leave the girls some love, for many of, this marks our first time out with DD!
