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!

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!

 

KBD- Spotlight

Happy Sunday everyone!  We are well in January now and I hope that it is starting off great for you.

It’s my spotlight day on the Kitty Bee Designs blog, and I decided to make a fun Valentine’s day card with the cute Sushi Buddies, which can be found in the store here.

I used the papers from a couple of DP’s I got last year in a swap – Pebbles My Funny Valentine and also My American Crafts xoxo.  I also pulled out a fun heart doily from my stash.

I colored the images with my copics, and the sentiment I just printed out on my computer.  I also added a simple heart brad and few small gems to finish it off.  I hope you like it!  Don’t forget to stop by the Kitty Bee blog to play along in our current challenge.

 

 

 

Coffee

Hello again! What?  Two posts in a row..can it really be?? Yep, this is me trying to be more creative this year (my one word for the year if you must know) and trying to do a lot more stuff in my craft room than I did last year, and that is including layouts as well as cards.

My big crafty resolution for this year, is to start doing all those online classes that I have paid for and not attempted yet….I think I have 5 or 6 just from Scrapbook & Cards Today (who by the way launched their 365 Class for 2018!  Here are the deets! )  This double-page, sketch-based class features exclusive PageMaps sketches, trendy techniques (all spelled out in photos), a monthly bonus card, cutting files, complete instructions and so much more.  All taught by some of the biggest names in the biz…really fun and new this year, there is a monthly sponsored prize for doing the challenge! How fun is that????

Anyway, here are a couple of cards that I made for a swap on Splitcoast Stampers.  The theme was Caffeine.

I finally broke open my Stampin Up Coffee Suite Designer papers and used the SU The Perfect Blend stamp set as well as the Kraftin Kimmie – One Cup at a Time.  The sentiments are from Stampin up and Paper Smooches.  I added in some small embellising on the first one, with some Nuvo drops.  Since I was mailing these out, I wanted to keep them as flat and simple as possible.

Thanks for stopping by!
