My card is highlighting the image FARMERS DAUGHTER

I am using this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I used the All Abloom designer paper from Stampin Up as well as the Little Friends stamp set for the sentiment.  I used my sizzix for the flourish and the circles.  I colored the image with my copics and then popped it up with some pop dots.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over the the BSC blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for you.  You can’t see it in the picture but I used a bit of Wink of Stella in her hair just for a bit of extra shine.

In keeping with the quick and easy theme, I just used some paper from my stash and worked some layers.  My only embellishments were some enamel dots and a word sentiment that was sent to me in a swap.  I added some gel pen faux stitching just to brighten up that black a little bit.

I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

A fun father’s day card

Happy Wednesday all! Halfway through the week! Woo hoo!  Head on over to Penny’s Paper Crafty today and you will see our new challenge QUICK AND EASY! (my favorite kinda card)

Our sponsor this week is new to me, but I just love!  It’s Dr. Digi’s

Our winner this week is going to get 2 free digis of choice!  I was excited to work with this image because IT IS PRECOLORED!  My coloring skills are sadly lacking so any time I can get the change to use a precolored digi, I am all over it!  This week I am using Weekend Walter! 

There are also b&w digis as well if that is your preference!  So much to choose from.

Here’s my card!

The DP is Stampin Up and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I added three metal brads and this card was done and super quick and easy!

Your turn! Have some fun creating and make sure you show it to us by linking up on the blog!

A coffee lover’s birthday

**if you are looking for the UYS blog hop click here**

 

Happy Friday all! Can you believe we are already into June…the year is 1/2 over already! It just seems to sneak in there!

Ok..so…..another fun challenge over at Brown Sugar Challenges….

our theme this week is CELEBRATIONS!

No doubt there is lots to celebrate in June…weddings, graduations, babies, birthdays…last day of school! woohoo!

 

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!  and our winner this week will receive 4 digital stamps! Sweet!

My card this week is for a friend who is a big coffee lover!  I thought it would be fun to make a coffee themed birthday card using JJ Coffee to Go.  I used the image for my card but it also comes with a sentiment as well.

dav

I used some DP scraps that I had been working with for some previous projects and I stamped the cardstock using a couple of Stampin Up stamps (gorgeous grunge & timeless textures).  The sentiment I just printed out on my computer.  I added a few sequins from my stash, a star punch and the hat I stamped from another birthday stamp set (sorry can’t remember the name now!) and cut out.  I colored JJ just with my copics and then die cut her with my favorite CC designs oval die.

I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog so you can see what the other DT ladies have created for you and to play along! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Hi!  Welcome to my part in the UYS summer blog hop…you should have arrived from   Christine’s blog.  If you haven’t you can go back to the start of the hop on the UYS blog so you don’t forget anyone….all the links are at the bottom of this post too, just in case you get lost!

I love summer!  Here in Calgary, in my house anyway, summer means camping and a lot of time outdoors.  We have a lot of winter here in Canada..sometimes up to 8 or 9 months of it, so when that warm weather hits, you know we are outside!

Summer always makes me think of fun, bright colors. Everything seems so much more vibrant and alive!  So for my project, I wanted to share with you some embellishments that I made in a class I took at Crop & Create with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine.   The class was hosted by one of my crafting idols Vicki Boutin!  We were using her new line of products from American Crafts and they are just so fun…there are stickers and water color stickers, die cuts, crayons and oh so much more!  These embellishments are made with fun, vibrant uses of color.  They give you the happy feeling inside and that’s what summer is all about!  Happy happy fun fun!! 🙂

We were learning to just have fun and create layers and textures to make some knock out embellishments.  Don’t throw away those scraps…instead, grab them along with some adhesive, some pop dots and whatever little bits and bobs you might have around and create some amazing embellishments while you binge watch your favorite shows!

I hope you enjoy these and I hope you will create some of your own to use on some great layouts or cards. Now you are off to Majo’s blog  to see what great summer fun she has for you but the list is below just in case you lose your way!

Bugaboo Birthday

Happy Wednesday Bloggers!  I hope you are all well.  I’ve had a sick household over this last week, which was kinda blech, as it was our long weekend and the official kickoff to camping season.

I haven’t done a lot of scrapping this weekend but I do have a cute card for you today!  It’s a new challenge week over at Penny’s and we have 2 fabulous sponsors for this week:

who is giving a luck winner 4 free images of choice

 and

who is offering a lucky winner a $12 gift certificate to their store!

Both companies have amazing digitals to use you can’t go wrong with either one!

This week I am using a digital stamp from Bugaboo!

dav

This is a fabulous birthday cake stamp is handy to use for a quick birthday card and just some scraps from your basket.  This week I am pairing my anything goes theme at Penny’s with the Mojo Monday sketch.  Again, a really great sketch that you can use with scraps and just knock out a quick and fun card!

I just used some pieces from my scrap bucket (I even found some teal burlap in there to match my paper).  I colored the image just using my Sharpies this week and I added some stickles to every other layer, to bring in the sparkle from the chevron multi colored paper.  I also used my spellbinders to die cut.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out the blog for the other great projects from the DT and to play along with our anything goes challenge (it couldn’t be easier!).
