Happy Wednesday! It has been gorgeous weather here in Calgary…warm and we are gearing up for Stampede which starts on Friday! Cannot wait. 🙂  YEEEHAW!

Penny’s Paper Crafty has a new challenge up this week! As always it’s anything goes and this week’s sponsor is

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY!

The winner gets $10 to spend at the store!

Here is my card today using some images from the garden collection.  There are a lot of different images in this collection and you should stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created as some of the other girls have used some of the other images!

I decided to use the two planters and the gloves for my card.  dav

 

The background floral paper is from my stash, that I got in a swap.  I printed out the planters on some DP and then cut them out but you could just as easily print it out on white an color it.  I added just a variety of different flowers from my stash .  The gloves I printed out on some textured Sizzix paper that I have had forever…I wanted it to look like old worn leather gardening gloves.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches (Perky Plants). I hope you like it and hope to see you play along!

 

A Journey of Memories

It is shaping up to be a nice week here! I think that summer really decided to step up and be present!  I’m loving the sunshine…

Which is why for my project for this week’s challenge at Penny’s, I wanted to use this cute little travel pig and some fun, bright, summery colors.

Our sponsors this week are BUGABOO STAMPS (4 free images for a lucky winner)

 

and CRAFTY SENTIMENTS (3 free images for a lucky winner)

 

For my project, I’m using this cute travel pig from Bugaboo!  I am using up the last scraps of the wicked paper I received and Crop & Create and Vicki Boutin’s class.  I’m just about down to the end now.  I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week.  I colored the pig with these AWESOME watercolor markers that I won recently from Creative Scrapbooker magazine and Sakura!  Oh they blend like buttah!  They are the KOI watercolor brush set!  Love them!  The sentiment are word stickers from Tim Holtz.  I hope you enjoy the card and don’t forget to play along with us at Penny’s! Be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the team has for you this week!

In keeping with the quick and easy theme, I just used some paper from my stash and worked some layers.  My only embellishments were some enamel dots and a word sentiment that was sent to me in a swap.  I added some gel pen faux stitching just to brighten up that black a little bit.

I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

For this card I just used a sketch that I had found on Pinterest.  I’m just using up some scraps from a kit that I had received at Crop & Create for Vicki Boutin’s class.  I love these colors! I colored the image using my Copics and the sentiment is from Sweetly Framed stamp set from Stampin Up.

I hope you like it and please play along with us at Penny’s this week..as always, our challenge is anything goes and we would love to see what you are creating this week!

Bugaboo Birthday

Happy Wednesday Bloggers!  I hope you are all well.  I’ve had a sick household over this last week, which was kinda blech, as it was our long weekend and the official kickoff to camping season.

I haven’t done a lot of scrapping this weekend but I do have a cute card for you today!  It’s a new challenge week over at Penny’s and we have 2 fabulous sponsors for this week:

who is giving a luck winner 4 free images of choice

 and

who is offering a lucky winner a $12 gift certificate to their store!

Both companies have amazing digitals to use you can’t go wrong with either one!

This week I am using a digital stamp from Bugaboo!

dav

This is a fabulous birthday cake stamp is handy to use for a quick birthday card and just some scraps from your basket.  This week I am pairing my anything goes theme at Penny’s with the Mojo Monday sketch.  Again, a really great sketch that you can use with scraps and just knock out a quick and fun card!

I just used some pieces from my scrap bucket (I even found some teal burlap in there to match my paper).  I colored the image just using my Sharpies this week and I added some stickles to every other layer, to bring in the sparkle from the chevron multi colored paper.  I also used my spellbinders to die cut.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out the blog for the other great projects from the DT and to play along with our anything goes challenge (it couldn’t be easier!).

IMG00416-Alana-Birthday-Princess_1024x1024

I challenged myself with my card this week, to just use some things that were on or near my desk….really this is not much of a challenge as my desk is always full of stuff!  The DP, butterflies and bling are all from my stash!  I love the colors in this!  I colored the image just with my copics and although you can’t really see it in the picture, I also added some wink of stella to her gown and to her crown!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

I chose this really cute button flower bouquet because I thought it would be a fabulous versatile image…

 

Button Flowers Bag Preview

I used mine for Mother’s Day, but you could use it for a Just Because card, sympathy, a friend..pretty much anything…

I used some Stampin Up paper that I had on my desk from another project.  I wanted to use it up and it was perfect for some simple layers.  The sentiment is from the Greatest Greetings stamp set also from SU.  I added a touch of bling from my stash and a little bit of glossy accents to make those cute buttons stand out more.  I die cut the images using a CC Designs die.

I hope you enjoy the card and remember to play along on the blog with this week’s Anything Goes challenge!  Remember, there is also a DT call out, so if you think you might like to join, don’t forget to add DT to your entry when you link up!

How fun is this guy!  I paired him up with the Summer Fun collection from Fancy pants that I have been trying to use up, so it worked perfectly!  I colored him with my copics and then cut him out.  It’s really hard to tell from the picture but his cool shades and his floaty both have some glossy accents!

It’s Friday!

I am late! I for some reason thought the new challenge for  Penny’s Paper Crafty started today but it was actually Wednesday! YIKES!.   The theme is SOMETHING NEW.  So it can be something new to you or something like a new marriage, new baby, new home etc.  We have great sponsors this week, and I am highlighting Stamping Dragon for you.

The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Clementine collection.  I colored the image with copics.  The little brad feet are new to me and I thought there were kinda cute for this card.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.  The pearls and button are from my stash.  I also added a rub on stitch around the card just for a little bit extra.

thanks for stopping by!
