Cup of Thanks

Hey you! Thanks for stopping by!  Today I’ve got a fun card for you for my guest spot on the Color Crazy Challenge Blog.  I’m using an image from Lemon Shortbread called Hot Cuppa Girl.   I just colored her with some basic markers.  I wasn’t really going for any shading or definition.  My DP is just random sheets from swaps that I have done recently.  I paired it with a sentiment from the Cup of Tea set from My Favorite Things.  A few Nuvo dots to finish it off and voila!  I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

Flowers for You

Hello everyone!  Sorry I’ve not been on much, lots going on behind the scenes in my house that I’ve had to deal with.

Today is a new challenge on the Color Crazy Challenge Blog on which I am pleased to be a guest designer.

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Creatful Heart Stamps

I used the poppy digi stamp for my card this week, but I really wanted to play around with colors so I added some blue to the red (yes in my world poppies are blue!).  I just used some DP that I’ve had in my stash, little bits and pieces that I’ve received from swaps.  I’ve added some Wink of Stella to give a bit of sparkle to the flowers and then some Nuvo drops.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp.

I hope you like it and feel free to play along.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

Scrappy Classes

I don’t usually make resolutions but this year, the only one I made was to actually do some of the online classes that I had purchased over the last year or so. I have 6 from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!

The newest one – SCT-365 2018 is a monthly class where you can do a 2 pg layout as well as a card, designed by some of the biggest and best in the Papercrafting world!

I am so happy to be on track for this year…I’ve done both January and now February!   I’m slowly working through a bunch of photos and kits, the majority of which are from trips so you are going to see a lot of those in the upcoming months!

These classes are super easy to do – with pictures, detailed instructions, free cut files and exclusive sketches!  You can find all the details here!    Give one a try!  You won’t be disappointed and you will be pushing through layouts and cards in no time!

Confetti

Hello my darlings!  It’s my challenge up on the Use Your Stuff blog today.  It’s all about weather!  We are looking to see what your weather related projects are this week, it could be a layout or card about weather, some weather embellishments, like clouds, raindrops, sunshine or yes, even snow.

Today I am using a stamp & sentiment from Kraftin Kimmie called  Look for Rainbows.  I have had this for a bit and finally cracked it open.  It’s such a cute little stamp!  I colored her with my copics and then I used some fun cloud DP from Little Yellow Bicycle called The Escape.  A titch of cord and some bling to finish it off.  I also gave the umbrella a kiss of Wink of Stella.

I hope you will play along with us on the blog today! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Giraffe in Green

Happy Friday one and all!  Today is a new challenge on the Kitty Bee Designs blog!  Our theme this week is a really fun one – SAFARI ANIMALS!  Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my!

I’m using a fun image from our sponsor The Paper Shelter.  It’s Giraffes on Holiday and it’s these really adorable giraffes during different holidays in the year.

I know it’s early but I really wanted to do the St. Patrick’s day one… Eventually I will have to jump on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon, but not quite yet.   I chose to go with a pre-colored one for my card and just added a few items from my stash.  I don’t have a lot of St. Patrick’s day stuff so I just pulled a few things from a bag that I add to throughout the year that I think might work.

I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us this week.  We can’t see what wild safari animals you find in your stash!

Holidays in Red

It’s February!  I love February mainly because it is my birthday month!

Here is a quick little card for our Christmas Crafts All Year Round challenge for the month.  Our theme is RED.  Your project should show red as the predominant color.

All the elements for this card are just from my Christmas stash.  I used a project life card as the focal point and then just built around that using some DP, twine, a red doily and some bling.  Nothing fancy but definitely screams RED!  I hope you like it and please play along with us this month and show us your red creations!

The Ordinary

Hey everyone!

I’m happy to be a guest designer this month on the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge!  Their challenges are always anything goes, as long as you do coloring of course!

My card for this week’s challenge features and image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  I think he’s just great for those masculine cards that we all need but never quite seem to have enough of right!

So I’m still in the process of working through some stash papers that I found, which is what I used for this card.  I colored him with my copics and used my CC designs stitched rectangle dies to cut and mat him.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz tiny words and I added a few sequin stars and enamel dots to finish him off.

I hope you like it and please come play along on the blog and see what the rest of the design team has created to inspire you this week!
