The Happy Couple

Hi Everyone!  Tammy here and I am really excited to be a part of the Sunsational Stamps team and to bring you my first project as a DT member.  I saw the Bluebird of Happiness on the Scrapping with Lisa site and thought it would make such a cute wedding card.  Soon it will be the season for those pretty weddings, and it’s always great to have cards on hand.

The DP is from October Afternoon, and unfortunately I can’t remember the line it is.  I used my Spellbinders dies to cut out the scalloped and regular squares.  The image is colored with my copics and then I went over just a few areas with my Wink of Stella clear marker to give it a bit of sparkle.  (It doesn’t seem to show well in the photo though).  The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Labels of Love) and the little sparkly hearts are just from my stash.  I hope you enjoy this card and don’t forget to stop by the store and see what inspires your next project!

Captain America

is in the house…well kind of.  Our theme this week at RCS is to use superheroes!  We are supporting breast cancer month and all of those real live superheros that battle a disease or personal hardship each and every day!  We salute you.  We want to see your projects that salute the superheros you love, fictional or real!

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!

Bling it on Baby

As you are reading this, I am basking in the Cuban sunshine, sipping alcoholic drinks, eating lobster (well maybe not since I’m allergic) and having a grand time finishing up my holiday!

Another new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.  Bring on your BLING!!  Oh you know you want to do this one!!  Who can resist the shiny??

SONY DSC

I decided to go with a Valentine’s day card with the challenge.  It feels like forever since I’ve made one and goodness knows I’ve got the supplies.  I just decided to go with some bits and bobs from my stash.  I don’t know who the DP is from but the little die cuts are all from K & Company.  The doily is from the $$ store and the bling is all from my stash.   I’ve got some pearls, a dainty rose and a cute bling heart in there as well.  The ribbon is left over from my project last week 🙂

Have you been to the blog?  The ladies have blinged it out!  Go see! 🙂

Butterflies

It’s snowing here.  A lot.  **sigh**  With all of the white stuff falling down, it’s kind of hard to think of anything but Christmas but it was nice to make a change.  Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week, is Butterflies!

I have this really great Stampin Up die cut that I picked up but really haven’t had a chance to use yet so it was fun to break it out.

I am mailing this out to someone special so I didn’t want to add too many embellishments to it.  I just used some scraps of DP that I had on my desk and my trusty go to Stampendous stamp set for the sentiment.  I added a few pearls and a little bling as well.  I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us this week!

Winter

Ahh another Friday.  I have another craft fair tomorrow, the last one of the season for me this year.  I hope it goes well.

Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week is Heavy Metal…we would like to see some sort of metallic element to your project.  It could be an embellishment, a technique, paper…whatever you like.  We are being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments this week and they are offering some free images to the winner!

Here is my project for you this week using one of the great images from Crafty Sentiments….

HPIM1311

The DP for today’s project is from My Mind’s Eye (12 Days of Christmas).  I colored with my copics and added a little bit of stickles to the muff.  I added a little bit of bling and for my metallic element I added a couple of staples in the corner.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts I believe.

I hope you like it and will play along.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the other DT projects this week.

It Ain’t Easy Being Green

It challenge day at Creative Corner Challenges.  Our theme this week is Sing, Sing a Song.  We want you to create a project inspired by any song, by any artist that moves you.

For my card I was inspired by the song ‘It Ain’t Easy Being Green’ by Kermit the Frog.  I don’t know why but this song has been stuck in my head for days….

I created a really simple card for this one, using one of the images from our great sponsor this week, Scribbles Designs!

Here is my card

I also created this card with Tracy’s Core’dinations Core and Stamping challenge in mind.  I used the Core’dinations Spotted  6×6 pack for this card and then did some sanding on it, to allow the white to come through.  The DP was in my paper box and I received it from a swap ages ago.  I added some ribbon and bling from my stash as well as a glittered starburst I found, just for some added texture.  The stamp sentiment is from Stampendous Friendly Messages and is one of my favorite go to stamps.

I hope you enjoy the card.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the other inspiration pieces from the DT and play along with this week’s challenge.

Snowflakes

And here we have another card created for the Core’dinations online crop.  The theme for Clare’s challenge was to use your core’dinations cardstock to make quick and easy Christmas Cards…believe me, you can’t get quick and easier than this.  I think the whole card took me 5 mins to create.  I used the white from the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors (this paper pack is getting quite the workout over the last few days!).

I knew I wanted to do a white on white card because I really love the look of them and what better theme than snowflakes.  I decided to brush the dust off of my Christmas embossing folders and chose this snowflake one.  I then used a sizzix snowflake die and my SU punches to set the sentiment.  I did a bit of distressing on the edges and added some pearls and bling (oh those little blings are hard to work with!) to set it off.

Make sure you stop by and play along to win some great Core’dinations packs!
