A Warm Joy

Have you stopped by the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog yet?  Our new monthly challenge is up….

Normally when you think of Christmas, you think cold and snow…this month, we want you to think WARM!  Use warm colors on your project

No automatic alt text available.

…reds, yellows, oranges.

This was a bit of a tricky one for me.  I scoured all my Christmas stuff and I didn’t really have anything in those warm colors. Then I happened upon some sheets for a Simple Stories album…since I don’t do mini albums, I decided to cut the sheets I wanted to create my card instead.  One of those sheets was this really cool star die cut in a glitter cardstock…I thought this would make an awesome layer.  I did some fussy cutting on another sheet for the flowers and then I picked up a new die cut earlier this year, that I haven’t used yet.  It’s from Penny Black called “Joy to the World”.  I wanted to add a bit of orange in there so I cut it out of orange glitter paper and added just some plain orange ribbon from my stash.

Enjoy the Good Life

Are you ready for another Cardz 4 Guyz challenge?  This week, it’s all about the R&R…our theme is RELAX!

I was a bit challenged for this one, as I didn’t really have much for guys relaxing…..until I remembered that I have a Cricut Explore Air!~  Blowing the dust off, I found some fun images to cut out…

I’m using this cute one from the Fun in the Sun cartridge…I did a bit of finagling as I added some chalk to sort of define his shorts and his sunglasses!  I paired it with the Lakeside DP from Pebbles (yikes 2012!) and the sentiment I found online at deesdesigns as a freebie (thanks Dee!).

A few little bling from Stampin Up and voila!  Enjoying the day!  I hope you like the card and please stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with and to play along with us…can’t wait to see what you create this week!

A sprig of spring

Hey everyone!

I hope things are a little less white where you are, then it is here.  We have snow today!  It’s hard to believe that it is Easter weekend when it looks so much like Christmas!

For my Color Crazy Craft Challenge this week (sponsored by Polkadoodles) I went with some spring colors!

I’ve used Polkadoodles Crocus, the Darling Buds.  I colored her simply with some copics and just used a few pieces of DP from my stash.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella to her dress and the flowers in her hair.  The stamp is just one from my stash and the resin flower is just from Michaels.

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!

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!
