KBD # 108 – Thanks

Hello, Hello, Hello!

I’m a bit late posting this!  We have a new challenge up at Kitty Bee Designs!  Our sponsors this week are Lemon Shortbread

 

Sasayaki Glitter!

 

I am using a cute little image from Sasayaki for my card today!

dav

 

I just used up some small pieces of DP from my stash.  I added a bit of glitter paper for some fun.  The image is colored with copics and I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the pumpkins and the hat.  (Now the hat normally  has a little spider that hangs off of it, but I decided to cut it off for my card).  The sentiment is just a die cut  from Your Next Stamp.

Be sure to stop by the blog to see the other great projects from our DT and to link up your own THANKS projects!

Let’s Play BINGO

Hello all!

I am hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff and we are playing BINGO!  I’ve created a fun bingo card to use on your project (a great way to get the MOJO going as well if you are stuck!).  Here’s the card , there are lots of fun items to play with.

Here is the card I created using the horizontal line of red, die cuts/cut aparts, hearts and doily

The DP is from American Crafts XOXO collection. The doily, die cuts and white foam heart are from recollections and the glittered hearts I cut using some Recollections glitter paper and my little $$ store heart punch.  I hope you like it and hop on over to the blog to play along and to see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

A wee Valentine

So today I am playing along with the Paper Play Sketches for this week.

sketch

 

I have a bunch of Valentine’s stuff that I haven’t used since well last Valentine’s day so i thought I would break it out.  I used the Love Me Do collection from My Mind’s Eye from a few years ago.

I used my Cricut to cut out the Cupid Bear from Teddy Bear Parade.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.

Just for some extra texture and dimension I used some glitter paper for his little toga and stickles for his nose and the bow & arrow.

I hope you like it and you still have some time to play along with the sketch!

Glittery Valentine

Can you believe February will be here soon?  My birthday is in about 2 weeks!  I’m celebrating with a bunch of my friends and having a wine and paint party….but that’s another story….

Our new challenge is ready for you at the Use Your Stuff blog!  Renee is challenging us to use sequins and/or glitter on our pages.  Now we all know that I have a love/hate relationship with glitter that I am not sure I will ever get over.  Certainly not at this point, so I decided to forego actual glitter and instead, cracked open a big stack of glittered paper that I had.  I really loved the red and knew it would be perfect for a Valentine’s card I need to send out to my Secret Cupid on the SCS site.

I totally CASE’d it off of this card from Pinterest!  I hope you like it and I hope to see you play along with us on the blog this week!

The DP is from MME (Lost and Found Christmas).  I had this glitter paper that I’ve been hoarding forever to use with the stars.  The image is from my stash.  I’ve had it forever and I’m trying to use them up this season.  I colored the image with my Copics.  I hope you like it.

Here is my card this week, using one of their ever cute stamps

I colored the image with copics and added a little glitter to her wings.  The DP is from Basic Grey’s Ambrosia 6×6 paper pack just a scrap piece that was in the package.  I added some pearls, a button and twine from my stash.  I used some Tim Holtz distress inks to dress it up a bit.  I hope you enjoy it and be sure to stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also enter this week’s challenge.

Merry Christmas

Hello All!  Back to the creative grind again after a successful weekend at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.  I got a lot accomplished in terms of new Christmas Cards for my upcoming craft fairs, had a lot of fun with my friends Kathy & Lisa and the swag bag was amazing.  I will post that a bit later.

It’s a new challenge at Use it Tuesday this week. Our theme is all about Orange…we would like you to create a project using orange in it.  It could be halloween, thanksgiving, or anything else.  In my case, it is Christmas! 🙂

I challenged myself to make a Christmas card with the unconventional color of Orange ..so here we go.  All the DP is from my stash.  I am thinking I have some BG Jovial in there from a couple of years ago.That tells you how long I hold onto all my paper…LOL  The image is from my image bucket and is Stampin up.  The snowflakes were originally plain chipboard and then I covered them with glitter and added bling.  The lacy ribbon and twine are from my stash as well.  I hope you enjoy it and I hope you will stop by the blog and check out all the really great projects we have for you this week.  Don’t forget to enter the challenge and be sure to let us know which stashy or hoarded items you used for your project!
