Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

Naughty or Nice

Happy Weekend Crafters!  I am excited because I am off to the Scrapshotz crop tomorrow.  After the stressful week I’ve been having I am looking forward to some ME time!

Here’s our new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week.  It’s FEMME FATALE!  All about the girls/women!  So link up with your female projects for a chance to win some digis from our great new sponsor IKEsArt!

Here is my card this week.

 

HPIM1264

Again, I apologize for the less than crisp image.  I’m trying to find a new cord for my camera that I usually use for uploading and not having much luck.

The DP is from MME 12 Days of Christmas.  I’m trying to use up my 6×6 packs in their entirety before I start a new one…ummm ya…slow process :)    The image is colored with my copics and I added just a bit of stickles to her hair as she is a Christmas Pixie :)  The flower just came out of my embellishment box.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will play along with us.

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. :)

Cool Penguin

I have another challenge card for you today! We have a new challenge up at Penny’s Paper Crafty.  It’s a fancy fold challenge  (so you need more than the one fold, think front step, side step, gatefold etc )and we have lots of fun sponsors for you for this one.  All the details can be found on the blog here.

Here is my gatefold card.  I have to admit, fancy folds are not something I am good at.  I really should practice more because there are some great ones on the blog today.

104 Tammy penguinI’m highlighting a Crafty Sentiments image.  Isn’t he cute!

I colored him with my copics and then added some chalk around.  The iceflow I used stickles for just to make it glitter a bit.  The DP was sent to me in a Christmas swap from the UK and I love it.  I added some flourishes from Sizzix and a button to keep the card closed.  I hope you like it and we look forward to seeing your project in this week’s challenge!

He is such a cute little Christmas image that you can find in the store here and comes in both colored and b&w.

This is my Christmas card for you this week.

The DP is some left over Echo Park and  Basic Grey that I had used for some other projects.  I colored him with my copics and then added some stickles for some shiny fun.  The swirly diecut is from sizzix and the bling and brads are from my stash.  I colored the die cut with Eddie using some chalk.

Spring Fling Challenge

Happy Monday all! Welcome to a new challenge for Lollipop Crafts this week.  We’re being sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs which I will tell you more about on Wednesday when the blog has their sponsor spotlight.  In the meantime, our challenge this week is to create a spring themed card.  This is a pretty easy challenge and everyone should enter to win!

Here’s my card for this week…

 

Everything is from my stash.  Gotta use that stuff up!  The butterflies were cut using the Stamping Cartridge.  The image is a Stampin’ Up one and was sent to me in a swap ages ago.  Finally got a chance to use it.  For a change, I just colored it with some colored pencils instead of the usual copics.  I added a bit of stickle around the one butterfly for a little glitz.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the rest of the DT inspiration and to enter this week’s challenge.

And so the 12 days begin

Well scrappers, you know it’s ’tis the season when Tim Holtz starts his 12 Tags of Christmas! Here it  is Season 5 or is it 6..anyway…today is day 1.

So here is the tag that Tim came up with …I didn’t have a lot of what he did, but I was able to ‘improvise’ a lot and still come out with a great tag.  My only ugh is that I think I used a bit too much of the white paint/stickles on the greenery… My favorite part is the banner.  I didn’t have any music stamps so I found some vintage music sheets on the ‘net and printed it off onto some Kraft cardstock and then added some Vintage Photo DI to it.  A little distressing and voila!   Also didn’t have the pinecone die so I used one of my flower dies instead and I think it worked alright :)

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next one.  It goes live on Tim’s blog in a couple of hours but I’ll be asleep by then :)  Catch it in the morning…it’s like opening up my advent calendar each day :)

AiF challenge #93

Welcome to another new challenge day at AiF.  This week we are on our new site!  Very exciting.  Our challenges have changed  a bit, we are now offering a freebie to work with and going to a 2 week challenge period.  The design team is smaller this term as we work out the kinks on the new site and yet the creativity is huge.  Make sure you check out the DT inspiration this week.

Here is my card for this week’s challenge of Back to School/Hooray for Teacher

I really wanted to keep this card simple and use primary colors.  I did a little paper piecing (something I’ve not done in awhile) with some scraps (**sigh** yes I am still using scraps) and colored the image Ella Teacher with my Copics.   A little chalking for the sentiment which I printed out on the computer and for embellishments just a bit of ribbon, stickles and bling, all of which are from my stash.  I will admit, the only new thing I used on this card besides the image, was the new border punch I picked up.  I realized I had NOTHING in terms of a scallop punch so I thought I better have one!

Entered into the following challenges:

Art Impression Stamps: School is in!

CRAFT Challenge: Children

DivasbyDesign: Back to School

Clear it Out Challenge: Back to School

Ribbon Car0usel: Anything Goes (must have ribbon as well)

Crafty Boots: Anything Goes

 

ALSO, DON’T FORGET THAT IT IS THE SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT AT LOLLIPOP CRAFTS TODAY AND THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET IN ON THE DOUBLE TIME CHALLENGE.  STOP BY THE BLOG FOR ALL THE DETAILS

A Handmade Challenge on Sarah Hurley

It’s a new challenge at Sarah Hurley this week.  Thanks to all of our participants for last week’s summer challenge.  Great job to everyone and the winners are posted on the blog.  This week, Ria has given us the challenge of adding handmade flowers to our projects.  A great challenge to be sure.

I have used the DP and image from Sarah’s new Oz collection which can be found here.  This collection is adorable!  I printed out the clip art version of Glinda rather than doing my own coloring this time.   I cut her out and added some stickles to her wings for a bit of sparkle.  I made my flowers using ribbon rather than paper for this challenge.  I really liked how they turned out and I just added a little pearl to the centre of each one.  I used my new MS punch that I picked up yesterday to add a bit of border to my card.  The sentiment came as part of a swap.  Enjoy and I look forward to seeing your projects this week.

I’ve entered into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations: Dress Up

Fresh Brewed Challenges: Put a little song in your heart (Somewhere over the Rainbow)

The Paper Shelter: Punches and Dies

Scrapalicious: Smile

Crazy Amigo Challenge: Pink

Use it Tuesday: unused punches, dies, cutouts (my new punch)
