Dragonfly Dreams: September

Yep. It’s here. September. Soon to be Autumn. Soon to be Pumpkin Spice Season. **sigh** I am not ready to let go of summer yet.

Our newest challenge is up at Dragonfly Dreams and our theme is Birthday!

We have a new sponsor with us for this one. A lovely designer out of the UK named Lauren Waterworth. I am using a stamp called Birthday Cupcake from her shop on craftsuprint.com

I’m not sure why I went with a Halloween theme for this card. I just had this idea in my head to do Halloween cupcakes!

I printed off three of the cupcakes and colored them with my copics. I then added some stickles & Nuevo Drop to look like sprinkles. I decided to go with a slimline so that I could have enough room for all 3 of my cupcakes. I think that this is an older Echo Park line. I added just a bit of black glimmer paper in behind and of course some enamel dots. I just printed the sentiment off on my computer and I still felt it needed something to give it more of that Halloween theme, so I went with some little silver spiderwebs.

Head on over to the blog…the Design Team has some really great projects for you to check out! Be sure to play along with us this month too!

Dragonfly Dreams – August

So this is my month to choose the challenge on Dragonfly Dreams and I’ve gone with food/drink. We are being graciously sponsored by Twinkle Lane Designs

Facebook Group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/145707866223056/

I am using an image called Donut Stack for my card.

I printed out the image on some copic friendly paper and then colored it with my copics. My DP is from Lawn Fawn and then I added a few Nuevo Drops to finish it up.

I hope you will play along with us for this challenge and be sure to stop by and leave the DT some love.

Hello all!

I’m here with today’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is a great sketch if you like shaker cards or just doing an image on top of an image.

For my card I used a fun die set from LDRS Creative. I got this as part of my Crop & Create Cardmaking online class that I did this past weekend, hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. We also were given a fun matching stamp set as well. I used some paper from my stash to go with this. The background under the sentiment was ink blended with a variety of inks from Stampin Up, Kraftin Kimmie and Lawn Fawn.

I also added a couple of clear Nuevo dots to it.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along and also to see the rest of the great creations from the DT!

Dragonfly Dreams: March

March is here people! Can you believe it! We are well on our to the first third of the year!

Ok, on to the important stuff! Our March challenge is up at the Dragonfly Dreams blog and our theme is Things that Make you Smile!

Our Sponsor is Stamper’s Delights this month.

I am using the Kawaii Chocolate Bar for my project this month and I did some paper piecing! I’ve not done it in awhile so I thought it would be fun for this.

I printed the image out on 3 different colors of cardstock and then cut the pieces as I needed them. I also added a few details, like some Wink of Stella and some Nuevo Drops. I used my SMILE stamp and die set from SCT delivered for the sentiment.

I hope you will play along with us and don’t forget to see the awesome project the DT has created with some different images from our great sponsor this month!

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!

Dragonfly Dreams: Add some Sparkle

Hey there all! I can’t believe we are already into May. The time has definitely got away from me. Have you been to the Dragonfly Dreams blog yet today?

Our May challenge is up, which is a fun one! Add Sparkle…there are so many things that you can use to sparkle and shine up your projects.

We are being sponsored this month by Digi Doodle Studios!

Yay DDS! The winner of the Challenge will receive 3 Digi Stamps only (digi stamp sets, paper, or sentiments not included) of their choosing. Thanks so much for being a great sponsor this month! If you head on over to the blog you can read all about this month’s challenge and our wonderful sponsor. You can also see the amazing projects the DT has created with some of the Digi Doodle images.

I was lucky enough to get this cutie called Pepper Belle Flora and she can be found here in the store!

For me, I went with some glitter paper that I don’t use near enough and of course some glitter Nuevo drops! You can’t see it, but for an extra layer, I also did the wings in some Wink of Stella. I colored her with my copics and my DP is from Lawn Fawn (yes, I’m still trying to work through this rainbow pack and it’s almost done! LOL). The sentiment is from the little jar on my desk of pre stamped/embossed sentiments so I’m not sure where this one is from.

I hope you like the card and I do hope that you will play along with us!

Wow…Tuesday crept up on me this week!  Been so busy with work and the long weekend here in Canada, I didn’t even realize it was Tuesday yet again.

Our challenge is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  

I just went with some scraps from my box for this one.  I believe the paper is Simple Stories.  I did some fussy cutting for the florals and then the sentiments is the Honey Bee Yippee triple die and then some Taylored Expressions.  A few Nuevo Drops and we are done like dinner.  I’ll be sending this out to my partner for the SCS Bakers Dozen!

Come play along on the blog and leave some love for the rest of the DT!  See you there!

Let it Snow

Wow! Here we are in December!  Can you believe it….our tree is up,  the Elves on a Shelf have arrived, my holiday baking is started….yep, the holidays are here.

It’s a new challenge up here at Pile It On.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments Designs!

Our theme is Shaped cards!  I haven’t done any for a long, long time.  So I pulled out a die that I’ve not used forever from sizzix.  It’s the triple circle flip.  So I used it with the Harriet and Lantern image.  I paired it with some Jolee’s Boutique Holiday paper pack.  I also added some red foil paper that I found in one of my drawers and hadn’t used in such a while.

The little stamp set is from Stampin Up.  A few glittered snowflakes and red Nuevo dots and we are done!
