Done and Gone

So I found another little kit in my stash…paper and embellishments from goodness knows how long ago.  This one was a Gossamer Blue planner kit.  I don’t do planners, so I created a few cards with the DP and a few embellishments instead.

The stamp is from YNS and I just added a bit of copic coloring and some glossy accents to the balloon.  The sparkly bling is from Stampin UP.

Enjoy!

Hello

Hi there!  It’s a new week and a new challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog today.  I’m hosting this one, and our challenge is to upcycle/recycle an aspect of your project.

For me, I found a couple of paint chip samples on my desk and chose to use them with some die cuts to create a couple of cards.

For the first one, the I used them to cut out the HELLO sentiment as well as the feathers, both of which are from Stampin Up.  I added some embossing, twine and some Nuvo dots to finish it off.

My second card, I made some shaker pockets and die cut some stars and balloons from what was left over after the first card.  The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.

KBD #105

Morning all!

Happy Friday and here are the deets on our new challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs!

Our sponsors this week are Fred She Said

and also Just Me Digital Stamps 

Our theme this week is : Kiddy Cards (card for a kid, image of a kid or kid’s things like toys, games, etc)

This is a pretty easy challenge, given that we have halloween coming up, who doesn’t love to see cute kids in costumes, right?  All the details are on the blog!

So I am using an adorable image from Fred She Said.   You know I love precolored digis, so this one is just adorable.  It does also come in a naked (ie b&w, or non colored) format as well.  I think it is Nolan & the Bullfrog

 

dav

I just used some scraps from my bin and added just some twine and a few sequins.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple to highlight the image.  I hope you like it!

 

Please don’t forget you have until 11:55 HST tonight to get your comments in to win some digis in our New Release Blog Hop!

Our new challenge of Anything Goes is up at Penny’s Paper Crafty this week and we have 2 wonderful sponsors that have graciously supplied some fun prizes for lucky winners!

Digital Stamp Set 746 Wilson [Digi746b]

For my card, I used the pre-colored image and paired it with the Tim Holtz Crazy birds accessories dies.  I used the little party hat and the balloons.  The DP is just some scraps left over from my stash and I used a bit of twine for the strings.  I love how it turned out

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!

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!).

Some Paper Pumpkin Alternatives inspired by Pinterest

So I get the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin’ Up.  I’m not 100% sold on it yet (it’s been since September) but can’t quite bring myself to cancel.  It’s been hit and miss for me.

The December kit was a desk calendar kit.  Ya, not my thing.  So with the help of Pinterest, I found some great card ideas instead!

We have a challenge at Use Your Stuff this week which is Flowers!  Perfect.  The kit has some great flowery bits that I could use!  Take a look!

All the sequins and butterflies (using the Butterflies thinlits from Stampin’ Up) were from my stash as were some of the sentiments but much of the cards were from the kit.

 

I think they turned out well!  Now, make sure you stop by the Use Your Stuff blog this week and join in our challenge.  The DT has created some fabulous projects and a lot of our new team has joined in the fun!

I had a bit of a struggle with this challenge until I went to trusty ol Pinterest and found a great source of inspiration.  I found a great card to case, and I of course cannot find where it was I got it from, so if it looks familiar and you know who the source is, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!

In a unique step for me, almost my whole card was made using just cardstock.  Only a small strip of DP was used.   I hope you like it and please, come and play along with us!
