We’ll always have Paris

Ahhh gay Paree…..one of my favorite cities in the world to visit.  I’ve only been there once but would really love to go again.

Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is to create a project that represents Our Wonderful World.  It could be a city that you like, or wish to visit.  A culture that you are into.. something that represents this world that we live in.

As I mentioned, I love Paris.  I love to travel period.

I created this fun card for you using my G45 Curtain Call line.  I also added some bits and bobs from my stash like the ribbon, flower and pearls.  This is the first time that I have used it and I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (what? yr suprised??)  I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us on the blog.  The DT has created some really great projects for you this week.

1+2+3 Crazy Style

So on our blog at the Crazy Challenge this week, it’s a 1, 2, 3 recipe challenge and the crazy part is, you can pick your own 1,2,3! Our sponsor this week, is Sassy Studios!
For my card, I picked 1 image, 2 DP’s and 3 embellishments. I have stickles, brads and lace. Make sure you check out the blog to enter and to check out the other DT inspiration for you this week.

As you can see, I’ve used again the left overs from the Prima paper from my circle journal.  I added some lace that I inked to match the colors for my card.  I added just a few stickles to give her crown some shine and a few brads in the corner.  It’s been awhile since I used brads on anything!  Colored with Copics and then chalked around.  A simple card that I can use for pretty much anything.  I like that.

Bling it!

It’s challenge day at Lollipop Crafts. Sorry for the late post but I have a sick little boy.  :(  Our sponsor for this week’s challenge is Digi’s with Attitude! Oh they have such cute stuff!

The theme Kris picked this week is to Bling it! You’ve got it and we want to see it. Anything that sparkles and shines, rhinestones, glitter, stickles, whatever! Any project will do, you don’t have to just create a card, you can do an ATC, a 3D project, altered art …it’s limitless

Here’s my card for this week’s challenge.  I have been working on some circle journals so I decided to use the scrap paper I had left over to create my challenges this week.  It was fun to see what I could come up with.

The paper is an old Prima line that i have had forever.  I added some rhinestones and stickles from my stash to bling her up.  Colored of course with my copics!

New Cards

I had to make some cards for a swap in my Just Cards and my Crazy Card Makers groups on Yahoo. 

The theme for the first one was fantasy, so some kind of fantasy creature..I chose a dragon digital that I had found and colored it with my copics.  I also used some of my older K & Company paper that I have had forever (I’m trying to use up old stock)

Next theme was just a spring card, remember, I’m still learning how to use my Copics.  I didn’t at the time have the right color for faces but I tried the best I could.

and finally the theme was  an ‘X’ card..so I chose ‘xoxoxo’
