Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

With Sympathy

Happy Friday all and welcome to this week’s installment of Digi Haven’s next challenge.  This week we are featuring freebie flowers!

Here is what you need to know:

June 15, 2012 – Free Floral Digi Challenge.  Use any FREE digital Flower/Floral image you wish. Pair it up with another Free digital image (i.e. add a toad, fairy, butterfly etc.) if you wish. The image(s) can be a forever freebie, limited time freebie or freebie of the month as long as it’s free for the duration of this challenge.  Please be sure to link back to the original artist or website on your blog.  This Challenge ends on Thursday, June 21st.

This is what I’ve created this week.

You can’t tell from the outside but inside there is a sympathy sentiment.  The digi can be found here from Making Our Mark.  I wanted a simple elegant card for this one so I colored the rose with Copics and cut it out with my Spellbinders.  A little embossing with the cuttlebug, some lace and a few pearls and there you have it.   Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the rest of the DT inspiration for you and some great new links to freebies!

 

Entered into the following challenges:

Crafts and Me: Pearls and Roses

Freshly Brewed: Anything Goes

Paper Shelter: Anything Goes

Stampin’ Royalty: clean and Simple

A Card for Mom

Hello everyone! Welcome to Wednesday and this week’s sponsor spotlight for Lollipop Crafts.

This week Robyn’s Fetish is offering 5 images of choice to the lucky winner.  The challenge this week is Baby Baby, so any baby creations.

The card I have for you however, is a Mother’s Day card.  Using one of Robyn’s images I made this simple little card.  The  lighter DP is from my stash as are the ribbon and the pearls. (The flower DP I got as an extra with an order I placed with GingerSnapScraps). I have been reorganizing and found this big box full of paper that needs to be used up.  The stamp I bought ages ago (like 2 or 3 years ago and am just using it now!) and is from My Sentiment’s Exactly.

Entered into the following challenges:

Repeat Impressions DCC425: Card for a Woman you Love

Little Darlings Challenges: Flowers

Scrapalicious: Flower Power

Oldie but a Goodie: on the farm or in the garden

Make it Monday: anything goes

Squigglefly: Mother’s Day

Believe in Miracles

Hey everyone! Today’s new challenge at Lollipop Crafts is an anything goes one.  It’s a for fun challenge as we don’t have a sponsor this week but we would love to see what you are creating right now.

 

Here is an altered coaster that I made.

I inked the coaster first and then stamped some snowflakes on it.  I added the sentiment card which I believe is from Webster’s Pages.  The flower is just from Walmart.  I’m not sure where the green snowflake piece is from and the 25 I cut out using my Don Juan cartridge and inked it with some chalkboard ink from Tatttered Angels.  A few little pearls and voila!  I hope you enjoy it!  Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see some more of the DT inspiration.

This is one of my favorite images to use.  It’s an older  one and honestly I am not even sure that you can get it anymore in the store, (but who knows it could turn up as a freebie posted by me;) ).
I wanted a simple thank you card.  Now normally I am not a pink person, but I wanted to use some pink scraps I had found and so I decided to give it a whirl.
Almost everything on this card is from my stash.  I did emboss the one panel using my hearts Cuttlebug folder.  The ribbon is SavvynSassy.  I just colored the image with my copics, did a bit of a doodle border and the added a bit of bling in the corners.   The stamped sentiment was sent to me in a swap.   (I apologize for the bad picture..)

Good Monday morning!  It always comes so quick doesn’t it??? Today we have a new challenge for you at Lollipop crafts.  The ever great Robyn’s Fetish is this week’s sponsor and she has 5 digis up for grabs!

It’s a recipe challenge this week: Green, brown, ivory, one DP and a handmade flower.

 

Here’s what I have for you this week

The DP was in my stash of course.  I colored Happy Harry with my copics and gave him a bit of inking with some Tim Holtz distress ink.  The ribbons, button and flower are all from my stash.  The sentiment was sent to me as part of a rubber stamp swap on Swap-Bot.com and it was the first chance I had to use it.  I really like how this turned out.  I think it’s a great any occasion card for male or female.   make sure you stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog this week and load up your project for a chance to win!

Thanks a Bunch

Well here it is…day 2 of my A Card a Day challenge or as it will be referred to from now on ACAD.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this one turned out.  I’m not posting the inspiration piece this time but I did come very close to what it is.  If you have the book, take a look.

I decided, and this was a hard one for me, to crack open my Basic Grey 6×6 pack..Eva.  I have about 10 BG packs, none of which have been opened yet and I’ve had them for ages.  I just loved the colors of this one.  The brad is AC adn the ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is Stampin Up.  The rubon across the top is from my stash as well which I just added to a punched piece of scrap cardstock.  I don’t know what the sticker flower diecut is.  I found it in a basket and decided to build this card around that.  I hope you like it.  All the edges are inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.

I’ve entered this card into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes

Aly’s Sunday Sketch: Anything Goes

Card Making Mamas: Anything Goes

Southern Girls Challenge: Anything Goes

Best Friends

Good Morning everyone! And Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating today!  It’s a new challenge over at AIF today and we have the cutest image to work with.  It’s from the Best Friends Series that is new in the store!

Here it is:

And here is my card for this week. 

I don’t usually do a card this size but I had found a base and thought that it would be fun.  I just added a little bit of friend DP that I had in my stash as well as some ribbon and twine.  The paper flower was one that I had done at a crop last month and had a few of them pre-done ready for projects.  Finished off with a little bling and a little inking around the image which was colored with my copics.  I am still learning how to use those and need a bit more practice.

Don’t forget to enter into the AIF challenge this week with your friendship cards.  That’s this week’s theme.  It can be anything about friendship as you define it…between pets, people, people & pets, sentiments whatever!  So head over to the challenge blog and enter!  You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday December 2 to upload.  If you are doing so from an online gallery please put AIF058 as a tag so we can find your project!  Make sure you also check out our freebie section to find some great images to use!

Today is also the last day to enter for the AIF DT call!  Remember you don’t have to have any previous DT experience..just love working with digital images and have a blog to share your creations with others.  Check out the challenge blog for more details!
