Lollipop’s Anything but a Card

Oh man! I am so embarrased!  I missed my first posting as a new Lollipop girl! I do apologize to you all!  So the theme this week is Anything but a Card…a bit out of the box for me as I always make cards, or at least tags.  The new Design Team is making their debut this week! Our sponsor this week is Meljen Designs…I’m sure you have seen her images everywhere! She even has a fabulous freebie section here

I love here stuff and was so excited to be using them for this challenge.  Make sure you stop by the Lollipop Blog to check out all the fabulous DT creations as well as to link up your project to win some great images from Meljen!

So I decided to do something even different and went with this bookmark.  I actually made it for my mom as part of a pay it forward swap on Facebook….it’s what she wanted..LOL  I just love this grump image and I know I’m going to be doing a lot more with it!

Not a lot going on here.  I embossed the bookmark with the clockworks folder and used one of my border punches.  The DP down the centre was just from my stash and I used a border punch for that as well.  I cut the image out with my nesties, colored it with copics and added some chalk.  I also added a bunch of stickles to make him pop some more.  The little READ book is from my cricut cartridge and the flower from my stash.    A little fibre to top it off!

Have a great day everyone, and make sure you stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog on Thursday for the sponsor spotlight, where I have a card that I created using this guy again!

This bookmark is in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes

Karber: Inspired by a book (I hope this counts as it was inspired by all books!)

Corrosive Challenge: Orange, Red & Yellow (I’ve got just a bit of red in my fibre there)


And for something totally different

So for one of the challenges on AiFactory, it’s something other than a card.  Ya..ermm okay.  I don’t do a lot of that…so it was nice to get out of my box…I decided on this bookmark.  I know it’s a little big but I still like it and plan to use it.  The supply list is under the pic.  I used a paint chip and then stamped it with a hero arts long stem stamp, die cut the words and the butterflies and added a little bling to them.  The ribbon is attached to a metal clip I found in my stash and then attached to the two tags.  Lemme know what you think.  The ducky image is colored with Copics.
