Here we go with another great sketch for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.


This one has some great elements and fun layers to play with.

I was in the mood to do a little Halloween today. So just using a variety of papers in my box and pairing it with a cute stamp set from Stampin Up and voila! I added a few enamel stars from my stash as well.

Be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us and don’t forget to leave some love for the rest of the DT.

2CC – September

Wow! Here we are going into September everyone. Where did the summer go right? Ready for this month’s challenge over at 2 Crafty Critters?? It’s always anything goes as long as you have a critter in there somewhere!

Our sponsor this month is QKR Stampede Digital Stamps.

May be an image of text that says 'QKR Stampede The Somewhat Cute & Somewhat Quirky Rubber & Digi Stamps'

I am using their stamp Being Silly for my new baby card.

I found all this paper pack for babies and I have no idea where it came from but I liked the colors of the pink/purple/green.

I colored him with my copics and then cut him out and cut out a black outline for him, to give some definition. I just wanted to do some simple layers but I did circles and rectangles for some added interest. I brought in that green with the enamel dots from Your Next Stamp and the ribbon from my stash. I pulled the sentiment from my sentiment cup but I think it might be Taylored Expressions.

I hope you like it and can’t wait to see what you create when you play along with us.

2 Crafty Critters

Challenge # 53 is up over on the 2 Crafty Critters blog and this month we are being sponsored by Sheepski Designs!

Something a bit different this month.  We’re partnering with Double Troubleand here’s a bit about their theme which runs from August 1 through August 19.Challenge #90 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker – says, “Cleo, my purr-ty furbaby, is excited that August 8th is International Cat Day.  She’s “feline” that purr-haps it’s time for us to do something claw-some.  Cleo wants to celebrate all of her fur-ends by creating a project that includes any baby animal, e.g. kitten, puppy, chick, elephant.  She thinks this challenge is a paw-sibility, it’s purr-fect and will be pun for all.” 
You can paws here… OR … use Twisted Sister’s optional twist for an additional chance to our random draw.     


Thing 2:  Double Trouble
says, “Is this fur real? Let’s paws… I think I need a cat-titude adjustment. As long as mew have included a cute or baby animal, do not fur-get to enter your project HERE at 2CraftyCritterCrazies. I’m sure they will also like to see your claw-some projects.”  Don’t paws here but,  check out Cleo’s ‘Mew and Your Paw-some Pet” additional Special Random Draw located after the Design Team’s inspirational projects.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister says, “Paw-don me, are you kitten me?  This is hiss-terical!  I am purr-ple with laughter.   Let’s see if mew  can come up with a pun for your baby animal or feel free to use one of ours.  Have some pun with this optional twist.  
And you’re already entering at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies so pop on over to Double Trouble and enter their challenge, too.  If it fits ours, it will fit their theme!  😀

I’m using the SheepSki Designs Image ” Dragons Fly”. I thought it would be fun because I don’t have any dragons!

Ya, you’re not seeing things. That’s some Echo Park and Doodlebug in there. Just when you thought it was gone! I colored the image with my copics and then cut them out and popped them up . I also added some Nuevo drops and some random word stickers I had.

Come play along with us this month. You have until August 25th to enter!

A new DT position

Hey Everyone! I’m really excited to be sharing my first project as part of the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Design Team! Our challenges are always anything goes as long as you use a critter in your project and it has to be prominent! We want to see that little guy!

This month the DT are using digital images graciously supplied to us by Beccy’s Place!

I chose the image from the Odd Bods collection!

I decided to go with a lot of layers for this card. I used a couple of dies from my stash and the sentiment is from a stamp/die set that I received in a SCT sampler awhile back and I use it a lot!

I colored her with my copics and I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to her fur. I added some Nuevo dots as well. The paper is just some pieces from other projects and sitting in my stash box. I was lucky to have some nice big pieces still to use!

I hope you like it and will play along with us over on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create and don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

Learning with Lawn Fawn

I had such a great time learning some new techniques with Jenn Shurkus and Lawn Fawn Stamps. I made my first interactive card and it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be! This Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Crop & Create Delivered Card Class has been amazing. I can’t even tell you how much I have learned after our first full day and there is still tomorrow!

We used the Coaster Critters stamp set. I’ve not really done scene cards that much before but again, Jenn made it look so easy. We also learned some great tips for copic coloring! Anything that helps improve my coloring works for me!

This little bunny on the roller coaster goes for a ride! What a fun interactive card!

I can’t wait to create some more fun with this set and get a lot more use out of the many Lawn Fawn sets I already have!

Oh my gosh! Here we are….our first challenge into December and on our way to Christmas! Our tree and decorations are up, the Elves have arrived and we are trying to find the happy in a weird and trying time.

I’m really loving the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and my card this week!

This is what I came up with!

I got some fun new stamps from Craft Addicts and I colored this adorable moose with some copics. I used some scraps from another project for all the layers and my favorite CC Designs oval die for the focal point. The sentiment is from Crafty Addicts too. I just added some enamel hearts from my stash that I thought went well with the papers.

I hope that you will head over to the blog, leave some love for the DT and play along with us!

Happy Crafting!

Hi All! So October is here. Wow, everything just seems to be flying by!

Have you stopped by the Use Your Stuff blog yet? Our new theme for this month is up…..we are heading NAUTICAL for the next 2 weeks….this could be colors, beaches, something you find in/on the water….take it where you will!

I dug out my Neat and Tangled stamp set for this one!

I just embossed this images with some black embossing powder and did some basica coloring with my copics. The DP is from my stash box so I’m not sure who it is by. I popped up the images using some foam dots and slid them in behind the Lawn Fawn borders. Just a titch of red twine and we are done!

I hope it helps to inspire you to play along with us! You can see the rest of the DT creations on the blog here!

Hellooooo! New day new challenge for Tuesday Morning Sketches! Here’s the sketch!

Now for my card, I played a bit with this sketch, which is ok! a sketch is kind of a starting off point and it doesn’t always have to be exact.

So let’s take a look at my card!

 

So the first thing that you will notice is that I rotated the sketch so that it is horizontal instead of vertical. I also spread out the diamonds a bit so that I had a bit more room for my images since they were a bit bigger.

I hope this inspires you and I hope that you will play along with us on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Die: Mama Elephant

Images: Kindred Stamps with the Ink Road

Copics

Enamel Dots: Pink Fresh & Your Next Stamp

CCC – Use a Die Cut

Ok everyone…time to work on this week’s Christmas project! At Christmas Craft Creations our new challenge has been up and you still have time to get in on it! Our theme this month is DIE CUTS! No doubt you have some of those lying around that you can use on a Christmas project!

Here’s mine for a Christmas card!

The image is from my stash as is the paper and twine. For the die cut I used some nesting dies from Sizzix. These are a go to set for me. I added some enamel dots and colored the adorable penguin with my copics. I hope you will swing by the blog and enter into the challenge that you can find here
