For fun on this one, I had my son pick out 5 cues from my challenge bucket to use on my card. This is a great idea if sometimes you have trouble getting your mojo going. I have this bucket that lists all kinds of scrappy goodies on a piece of paper, ie patterned paper, twine, ribbon, embossing, stamping, eyelets etc. Then you pick 5 and incorporate them into your project! So the 5 he picked for me were
twine, freebie, washi tape, embossing (heat or dry), tiny type word stickers
So this is what turned out!
For the freebie, I used the leaf die cuts! It turned out pretty good I think. I had this DP in my autumn folder for awhile now and I wanted to use it.
Wow! Friday already! That means we have a new challenge for you at Brown Sugar!
Our sponsor this week is Morgan’s Artwork who will be giving the winner 3 digi images of their choice!
What is this week’s theme you ask?? Why MOTHER’S DAY! An easy challenge and I bet many of you are already working on projects for mom!
Using an image called Cameo 8 for my card this week. (sorry I don’t have a watermarked image for you on this one!)
I tried to give it a bit of a vintage feel…I used water color pencils and some water color paper for the image. I then went over the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink . The DP is just from my stash and I distressed it a little bit as well. To frame the image I just used a die cut that I received in a swap and some little flowers that I have had forever in my stash. A few little pearls around and we are done. The sentiment with the little hearts is from Hero Arts – Celebrate Everyday set. I hope you like it, and please stop by the blog this week and let us know what you are creating!
When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class. It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee. I finally put that puppy to bed.
Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards. I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂
Sorry this is late everyone. I’ve been pretty sick the last few days which prompted a trip to the ER over the weekend and I’ve not been able to get quite back into the thick of things. Long story short, I’m having some severe headaches and I had some numbness all down my left side so I’m scheduled for an MRI tomorrow. Will keep you posted if anything serious.
So, a sketch challenge is up at Use Your Stuff this week. And it’s a great one that could be used for both cards and layouts! I chose to use it for my card this week.
Now I had a left over card kit, so I am not exactly sure who it is by. I just loved that it all went together to put this card in motion. The sentiment is a rub on from Memory Makers and the flowers are Prima. I inked the chipboard snowflakes to match the colors in my card. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along with us.
Our challenge is a simple anything goes for this week and you have the chance to win 3 digis from Rick’s Store. This week I am playing with 2 of his images, the first one is called Snoozy Elf
I just really thought he was so cute! I used some DP from the 12 Days of Christmas line from MME. I colored with my copics and I added some bling. I thought it would be fun to give the little jingle bells some added shine so I went over them with my glossy accents!
The next image is called Waltz. I thought she was very dainty and classy and for some reason, she inspired me to make an ATC. I haven’t done one of these in a very long time. I just used a bunch of little things that were already on my desk
I used my TH inks for this one. I colored her with my copics and then went over her with some modge podge. I inked the ATC card and then went over it with my french script stamp. I then added some ripped up paper that was sent to me in a swap. The sentiment was one that was sent to me in a different swap. i had that little rose in a bucket from…somewhere and then some little seed pearls. I then went over everything with modge podge and a finally spray with some spritz for a bit of glistening shine! I really like how she turned out.
I hope you will stop by the blog to see the other DT creations , including some from Rick’s DT who are joining us this week! There is some great mojo flowing on that page!
It’s Friday! Oh thank heaven! It has been what seems like a long week for me. I’ve not been able to get into my craft space much this week with work being so busy.
I do however, have a new card for you for our challenge this week at Creative Corner Challenges. My theme this week is layers. The more the better, but at least 2 layers are needed to qualify for this week’s mystery prize. I’m not announcing it until I pick the winner next week but it’s a good one.
Here’s my fun card for you this week. Again I was using up my scraps from my Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper. I am happy to announce that I have one more project to show you next week and then it is finally finished! Yay! That only took me 4 years to go through! I thought I was doing so well finishing up a paper pack finally and then I find out today that I won 4 paper packs by Basic Grey…**sigh** I can’t win for losing but I’m not really complaining 🙂
The image was in my image bucket so it came from a swap ages ago. I just colored it with my copics. As I said the DP was in my stash and it is the scraps of the scraps of the Crate Paper Lil Sprout collection. The sentiment is an old one from my stash. It was fun to do a square card for a change. I actually made this one for a swap on Swap-bot as well which has a square card theme. I hope you like it. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the DT inspiration pics for you this week and enter to win my mystery prize.
Happy Thursday everyone! I have a new card for you for Delightful Thursdays! Make sure you head over to the Digital Delights blog to check out what the DT has for you today. Delightful challenges is also having a Giving Thanks challenge this weeks so don’t forget to enter as well.
I used one of Wendy’s colored images for you this week. It’s the Fall House image which I thought was really pretty. I then paired it with the fall sentiments.
With the image I used some paper from Basic Grey. I inked it with some Tim Holtz Ranger Ink in spiced marmalade. I used a border punch as well as a Sizzix flourish die. The sentiment is cut out with a Stampin up Punch. I also added some ribbon and bling from my stash as well. The big leaf is from Walmart.
Happy Tuesday everyone! It was Thanksgiving over here in Canada on Monday so it was a busy weekend for my family as I had 2 dinners to attend as well as my youngest brother’s wedding on Saturday. This whole weekend seems like a big party! LOL
For many of us, autumn is well and truly here. So, we have a great challenge for you at Use it Tuesday this week. We are falling into fall and would love to see your Fall Creations! It can be anything that fall inspires you with, the rich colors, the celebrations, the activities….all we ask is that you use your hoarded supplies to create with and let us know what they are when you post.
Here is my card for you today.
I’m sure you recognize the paper from another card I did. This MME paper is great for fall projects, lots of rich colors. I used some more of the American Crafts pumpkin ribbon. The leaves were cut out using my little leaf punches and then the pumpkins and gate were from a die cut swap I did ages ago. The sentiment is from a Stampin up set that has a matching punch. I’ve used the punch before but not the stamp set so really loving paring the two together.
I just love the autumn feel of this card! 🙂
Please stop by the blog to see the rest of the inspiration the girls have for you this week and to enter our challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!
Happy Monday all! Welcome to a new challenge for Lollipop Crafts this week. We’re being sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs which I will tell you more about on Wednesday when the blog has their sponsor spotlight. In the meantime, our challenge this week is to create a spring themed card. This is a pretty easy challenge and everyone should enter to win!
Here’s my card for this week…
Everything is from my stash. Gotta use that stuff up! The butterflies were cut using the Stamping Cartridge. The image is a Stampin’ Up one and was sent to me in a swap ages ago. Finally got a chance to use it. For a change, I just colored it with some colored pencils instead of the usual copics. I added a bit of stickle around the one butterfly for a little glitz. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the rest of the DT inspiration and to enter this week’s challenge.
It’s a cold Thursday here in Calgary so going to be spending a lot of time trying to create with what spare time I have after chasing a 2.5 yr old Hurricane Riley around the house! 🙂
Here is my project for this week’s sponsor spotlight from Lollipop Crafts..the image is from Just Some Lines. I really love how this card turned out and it will be one on the table at the craft fair this weekend. I hope someone else likes it enough to buy it 🙂
