A Little Brown Sugar

Hello Bloggers!!!  So ummm ya, today is my first project with Brown Sugar Designs.  Yep! I am on the design team and am super excited!

Let me tell you about this week’s challenge…our theme this week is DIE CUTS.  You know you have lots of them waiting to be used, so pull them out!  Just pick one and work your card around it, that’s always fun!

The challenge this week is being sponsored by DIGITAL PAPER CRAFT who is so graciously offering 3 digis of the winners choice!

Today I’m using this adorable digi called Me and Ted.

How cute is that bear!  I did some coloring with my copics but I also did some paper piecing for her dress.  I used a variety of die cuts on this card.  The little white leaves were given to me in a swap.  The ovals are from CC designs (I got the dies in a swap!) and the Hello is from Stampin Up.  A few little gems from my stash and we are good to go.

I hope that you will play along with us this week.  We are excited to see what you can create!

Critter Birthday

As Friday is upon us, it is another new challenge at Creative Card Challenges.  Our theme this week is ‘Cute Critters’.  We would like to see projects with the cutest little animals you can find…..

Here is my card using a CTMH stamp set that I’ve had for a long time.

I think he’s just adorable.  I apologize for the bad lighting.  I’ve had technical difficulties with my camera today and had to go to the backup.  I wanted to do a fairly simple card as this will be mailed for a friends birthday.  I did some paper piecing for the balloons.  I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and link up to this week’s challenge.

Lollipop Sponsor Spotlight

happy Thursday all!  I know I haven’t posted for a bit.  I’ve been busy trying to get stuff made for my craft fairs this year–I am doing 4 all in the month of November.  So I have been busy but I have some projects to share with you later 🙂

Today is the Sponsor Spotlight over on Lollipop Crafts!  This week we are sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads

Our challenge this week is to use brads and/or eyelets on your project.  Pretty simple so everyone can enter and we have a great prize.  Everything you need to know can be found on the blog here.

Here’s what I have for you this week:

the DP is from a paper surprise pack I got from Hot Off The Press eons ago and have had forever.  I chalked the image after copic coloring and then did a little paper piercing on the scalloped circle.   It’s a little hard to see in the picture but the butterfly and the centers of the flowers all have stickles on them. A little of the baker’s twine from Whisker Graphics and a little charm and bling to finish it off.  I hope you enjoy.

AiF challenge #93

Welcome to another new challenge day at AiF.  This week we are on our new site!  Very exciting.  Our challenges have changed  a bit, we are now offering a freebie to work with and going to a 2 week challenge period.  The design team is smaller this term as we work out the kinks on the new site and yet the creativity is huge.  Make sure you check out the DT inspiration this week.

Here is my card for this week’s challenge of Back to School/Hooray for Teacher

I really wanted to keep this card simple and use primary colors.  I did a little paper piecing (something I’ve not done in awhile) with some scraps (**sigh** yes I am still using scraps) and colored the image Ella Teacher with my Copics.   A little chalking for the sentiment which I printed out on the computer and for embellishments just a bit of ribbon, stickles and bling, all of which are from my stash.  I will admit, the only new thing I used on this card besides the image, was the new border punch I picked up.  I realized I had NOTHING in terms of a scallop punch so I thought I better have one!

Entered into the following challenges:

Art Impression Stamps: School is in!

CRAFT Challenge: Children

DivasbyDesign: Back to School

Clear it Out Challenge: Back to School

Ribbon Car0usel: Anything Goes (must have ribbon as well)

You should have arrived here from Kim’s  blog.  If you hopped here by chance, please head over to Lollipop Crafts and begin your journey there.
Using Meljen’s Bunbun image (this is so adorable) I created this cute little birthday card.  One can never have enough birthday cards in my opinion.

The DP is from Bazill (Grandma’s Feather Bed).  The image is colored with copics with just a hint of paper piecing with the party hat and cupcake.   I also added just a bit of stickles as well.  The ribbon is from my stash and I cut the balloons out using my Celebrations cartridge and then ran them through the cuttlebug with the polkadots folder.  Since my FB win with Whisker Graphics, I’ve been using a lot of their baker’s twine which I incorporated here for the balloon strings.  The sentiment is a stamp set from Hot Off the Press.  I hope you like it!
