Happy Friday everyone! For us here in Canada, this is what we refer to as “May Long”…as in May long weekend or Victoria Day and unofficially the beginning of camping season! I unfortunately am not camping this weekend, although my husband is heading to our farm in Saskatchewan to open it up for the year!
We have a fun new challenge for you at Brown Sugar Challenge blog..this week’s theme is WASHI! Break it out and use it up everyone!
My image is called Flower Fairy…I think she is just adorable.
So again, just using some DP from my stash bin. My washi is from Simple Stories and it is the 2 strips of yellow dots on this card! My sequins are from Neat and Tangled (sweetheart sequin mix) and the sentiment is from Stampin Up (butterfly basics). I colored the image with my copics. I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog to play along and see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you this week!
Happy Wednesday all! It’s challenge day at Penny’s and to go with our anything goes theme, we have a couple of great sponsors again this week!
Our first sponsor is Oddball Art, who will be providing 3 images from their store for the winner this week!
Our second sponsor is Sparkle & Sprinkle who is also providing 3 images of the winners choice!
My card today is using one from Sparkle & Sprinkle! It’s called Wine Friends. It actually comes with 2 sentiments but this is the one that caught my eye when I saw it!
I did just some basic watercoloring for the image this week. I used this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. The DP is just from my stash. The sequins are from Stampin Up and I broke out my new Nuovo Dots in black for just a bit of an extra touch.
I cut the image/sentiment out using my CC designs die and my big shot.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and see the fabulous creations by the DT using images from both sponsors! Jump in and play with our anything goes challenge! Can’t wait to see what you create!
So just thought you might like to know…today is my first project for the Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge! Yep, I am now on the Design Team…yay!! I am very excited to be working with these great group of ladies…
Today’s challenge is sponsored by BUGABOO STAMPS who are giving away 4 digi imagesof the winner’s choice!
and also another great sponsor DI’S DIGISTAMPS who will be giving the winner a $12 Gift Certificate for the store to do some shopping!
Here is the card I created using a fun summer image from Bugaboo!
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!
When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class. It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee. I finally put that puppy to bed.
Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards. I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂
So I have a fun card today! I found an old card inspiration book called Get Real Greetings. I loved this book because it had some sassy sentiments in it. It’s pretty old (2005) and so the designs are a bit dated, but I totally wanted to use it with some newer stamps and such.
For today’s card I used Sophia.:) I colored her with my copics and used some paper from the Stampin Up Print Poetry Designer Paper. I’ve had it for a bit but I don’t know that I’ve ever used it before now!
I added some rick rack from Michaels and then a few sequins & dots from my stash. The sentiment is from the book and I just wrote it out on the computer. I hope you like it!
This sketch is pretty layer heavy which for me is great because I love layers.
I have a big box of loose papers, some that are mine, and some that I got from swaps and such. I really wanted to start getting this box down, so I used some papers for this challenge. I don’t know where they are from as I think I got them in a swap.
I made two cards, basically the same but with a slight variation. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along!
OK here is another card for World Card Making Day. I am using a free digi image from Craftin Desert Divas. I used up a lot of scraps in my ‘autumn/fall’ folder…again I don’t know where these come from. I just pick these up and throw them into the bag..LOL
