Critter Crazy #57

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile. It’s been really crazy at home and at work and so I’ve not done a lot of crafting lately.

I’m here today with my contribution to the Critter Crazy challenge for this month. As always our challenges are anything goes, as long as a critter is prominent.

For today I have a card that I made at a Photoplay Paper class I did not too long ago using the Not a Creature Was Stirring collection. How cute are these guys? This card is all layers and stickers and so much fun.

Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the great DT projects for you and we hop you play along too!

Hey Everyone! Here it is, the end of October if you can believe it! One more new challenge up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog for you!

Great bunch of layers for this sketch!

I went with blue and white for this one! I had a couple sheets of double sided paper which works great with a sketch like this. I also had one of these large sentiments that I got from Crafty Addicts.

Stop by our blog to see the great DT projects for you this week and play along with us!

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.

Greetings from Portreeve Saskatchewan! I’m at the farm this week for some R&R with my family! I do have this week’s sketch ready to go for you from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Love this! ok, yep. Another Doodlebug Designs creation! 🙂 I promise I will have some different ones for you next week! 🙂

This one has lots of layers and that those little blocks on the bottom could be anything! The DT has some great ideas for this sketch so be sure to check them out on the blog!

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!

CCC: April

Hello you! Glad to see you again for another great challenge over at Christmas Craft Creations! Our theme this month is No Stamping! Now some of you may find this challenging, but if you concentrate on layers and stickers like I did, you can put together a pretty nice card!

Here’s what I have for you today!

With this card I used only paper, a 3×4 & 4×6 cards and stickers! I put the sentiment sticker onto some black cardstock to give it a bit more definitiion and popped up some of the embellishment stickers with foam dots. These cards were part of a Stampin Up set I bought years ago and am still working my way through them!

I hope you will play along with us and stretch your imagination to create with stamps…use 3×4 journalling/project life cards, stickers, thickers, and layers to help create your project. You will be surprised how easy it really is!

Don’t forget, since this is our birthday month, we are giving away a bunch of prizes as well to some lucky winners. The blog has all the details and pictures of what you can win, as well as the rules for entry for the challenge.

UYS #420 Spring

Hey everyone! I’m here with this week’s challenge on Use Your Stuff!

This week we are going with a Spring/Easter theme.

I was recently at my farm for some much needed R&R and manage to take a few supplies with me to create some cards. Mainly a few SCT Samplers which are perfect! Some papers and embellishments, bring along some cardstock and you could make quite a few cards!

This one I created using the March 2019 SCT Sampler with my goodies from Doodlebug, which you all know is one of my favorite companies!

Sorry the picture is a bit off….I couldn’t do a reshoot as I have sent this out to a friend to well…brighten their day 🙂

I knew I wanted to create a card using that adorable flower Doodlepop! I stamped the sentiment from a SCT delivered stamp set that we received from the card crop that we did a couple of weeks ago! It has cute rainbows and clouds and then a few sentiments to match. It was designed by Becky Moore!

I stamped it with some Stampin Up Bermuda Bay ink. I’m trying to branch out from my usual black! A few drops of the iridescent Nuevo drops.

I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the Use Your Stuff blog to play along and to check out what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Brighten Your Day

Virginia Nebel demonstrated a quick and easy card using some goodies that we received from Heidi Swapp and an exclusive stamp set from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.

Our paper pad is Favorite Things and it’s got some wonderful patterns and solids in it. She taught us a great little trick to add dimension to your project by using some folded layers to pop up elements.

It gives it a great 3D look. I also loved all the layers we played with for this card. Such a great way to use up papers in the 6×6 packs, of which I have many as you know! The stamp set is adorable as well! It’s full of rainbows (another project will be coming with this set down the road) and sentiments.

Hey Gang!

Check out this great sketch for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches...I really like it! Lots of great layers, and you know I’m all about the layers!

The Design Team did a great assortment of cards for you this week. For mine, I decided to create a St. Patrick’s Day card!

I just used up a bunch of green scraps for this card. That first piece with the tone on tone dots is from Kiki-Arts which was the first DT I was ever on way back when. I’m pretty sure that was the last piece of paper that I had from them!

The leprechaun was just a sticker from the dollar store that I popped up with foam dots and then I added a few enamel dots.

I hope that you will stop by the blog and see the great cards the Design Team has put together for you.

Enjoy your week!

Happy Halloween

Hey all! I’m here to share a couple of halloween cards that I had created for World Cardmaking Day. It was for a challenge on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine…and there is still time to play along to win some great prizes. You can find all the details for the challenge here!

This is the Patterned Paper challenge.

I have this box of Halloween stuff that only seems to come out in October! This is the Sweet & Spooky collection by Bella Blvd, which was actually part of one of my SCT Samplers I think in 2019 (but don’t quote me). I also added a few chipboard pieces from the Simple Stories, Frankie & Friends collection which I thought went well with these papers!

I love how these turned out! You should stop by the SCT blog here and see all the great things that are happening!
