 I must confess, time got away on me, and this was a late make!!

You're 4

I used Ballerina Emma, and colored her up with my SN markers. Yesterday it was feeling very spring like here (today, not so much, with about 6″ of snow overnight), so I used soft pastel colors. I used scraps from 2 different paper collections, and cut the number 4 out with my Cricut. I used a die from Elizabeth Craft  for the bunting. Pink ribbon bows, some yellow flowers, a Brad and glitter glue pulled everything together, ready for the fussy cut image to dance onto the card :)

Flowers for You

Hey there :) Today, I have a card made with the gorgeous freebie that Conie Fong gave to celebrate her first anniversary at her Etsy Store :) It’s been a while since I’ve done a project in my favorite color combo, and I thought the red, black and white using this image would be very striking…I believe I’m right :) I colored the image with my SN markers, then rummaged through my scraps, because I knew I had to have something in the colors I was looking for. I was right!! And the big bonus was that the polka dot papers were scraps from the same pad :) To bring in a bit more red into the mix, I cut a border with my new die from Joy Crafts.  I added a bit of ribbon and a sentiment to finish this off.

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge – #188, Your Favorite Color Combo

XOXO

XOXO

Good morning!! Welcome to a brand new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges :)  Today we have the theme of “Valentines”, and our sponsor is My Besties by Sherri Baldry.  So, get out all of your “love”ly supplies, and make something up for your sweetie, and be sure to share it with us :)

XOXOI was given this sweet image to work with, and decided to have fun with the traditional valentine colors of red and pink!! After coloring the image up, I cut out a bunch of hearts with my Cricut, and tucked them behind the image, so they were peeking out. Then, I cut out an XOXO, again with my Cricut, matted everything with a red card stock….and was done this sweet Valentine :)

I’d like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Wolf Friend

Wolf Friends

EEEEP!!  I didn’t get this posted at anywhere close to the right time!! There still IS  a teeny bit of time left to enter our current challenge at Come and Get It, though. Our theme this time is “No Designer Paper”, and the sponsor is the wonderful Nikki Burnett.

                  Wolf Friend                                                                                   I used Fallon, supplied by the sponsor :)  I colored it with my Prismacolors, then fussy cut it to go over the embossed (and lightly inked) background. I die cut some birch trees to place over the embossing. I stamped a sentiment on another strip and this finished my project off :)

Third Birthday Bears

Birthday Bears

Hi there!!! It’s time for our first challenge of 2017 over at Come and Get It Challenges :)  Appropriately enough, the theme is “Anything New”.  This gives you a chance to show off some new crafty stash, a new technique…..well…anything new!!! Annnnd, it gives you the chance to win a $15 voucher from the ever popular Bugaboo Stamps!

Third Birthday BearsI was given the adorable Scene It Birthday Bears to use on my card.  Other than the new digi (colored with my SN markers), I also used a new stencil in the background….inked with distress inks; new ribbon, and a new fold  :)  I perked the card up a bit with some blue glitter on the number 3, and some balloons, that I cut with my Cricut, then added Glossy Accents to.  Hope you like it, and that you can join me and the fabulous design team in our Anything New challenge!! :)

Joy Snowman

Snowman With Skates

Hi there!  Another challenge has begun over at Come and Get It :) Our theme this week is Ribbon and/or Twine, so it’s a great time to use some embellishments that you may have neglected.  As always, the DT have gone all out, showcasing some images from our sponsor:  

Joy SnowmanI used the Snowman With Skates image from Bugaboo Stamps for my card. After coloring the image with my SN markers, I had a go at a background…which I’m fairly happy with :) I added some snowflakes with gel pen, and some puffy embossing powder for the snowman to sit in. I thought I’d go for ribbon AND twine on this card, wrapping some around the base and adding some to the stamped sentiment.

Leaf Sympathy

Fall Thoughts

Hi there!! This is a rather late post for this weeks challenge over at Come and Get It Challenges.  We have the theme of “Fall” – although it is cold, and snowy and slippery here :(   But it will go away….to early for winter lol.  We also have the fabulous Eureka Stamps as a sponsor, who has such a great selection at their store, you will be spoiled for choice, if you are the lucky winner!!  The DT has come up with some gorgeous projects, so stop by and be inspired :)

Leaf SympathyI was given the Leaf Background image from our sponsor to use for my card.  I had so much fun coloring these leaves, and experimenting with some different color blends with my SN markers!! I kept it to a simple design, using triple time stamping, and just adding a quick sentiment strip and a few enamel dots :)

Courtney's Kitties

More Kitties :)

Hello there!! I hope everyone had a great week, and is ready for the new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges :)  Our theme this week is Lots of Layers – a great way to use up scraps, I find.  The sponsor is

who have some fabulous images for the lucky winner to choose from.

Courtney's KittiesI used Cat/Kittens from our sponsor.  I’ve been practicing my fur coloring lately, and this was a great image to continue with :)  I used my Spectrum Noir markers, with a few touch up/accents with a very fine point Micron pen.  I work with a girl who loooooves kitties, and the color pink, so made this into a birthday card for her.  I die cut the backing of the cats from a pretty pink polka dot print, then found 2 other coordinating prints for some of the other layers. I stitched around the edges of these pieces to add a bit of definition.  Everything was matted on white card stock, which I edge distressed and inked.  The flowers were from my stash, as was the ribbon (I was going to go with MORE pink for the ribbon, but the lime green really popped, and coordinated well with the flowers).  I added some adhesive pearls to finish the card off.

Flower Girl CU

Flower Girl

Hello there!!! The weather is getting cooler….fall is fast approaching!  So better time to make a really spring/summery card?? :)  Our new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges is with the theme of Flowers, with two generous sponsors:

Please Join...    and   

Flower GirlOne of the sponsors, My Besties, generously provided the image that I used on my card, found here.  I colored the adorable Cat Lady up with my SN markers, then paper pieced her dress and headband with some of the same floral paper that I used in the layout.  I had fun digging up as many flowery things as I could for this challenge :)  The papers were all scraps from some coordinating sheets, and the trim was found when I re-organized all my trims and ribbons :)  The layered blooms were also from supplies that have been laying around waiting to be used :)  I hope you can stop by and visit, check out the fabulous DT creations, and enter your own Flower creation, at Come and Get It this week!

Make sure you stop by to see the teams amazing inspiration projects….and leave some love while you’re there :)

SunshineI was given Ice Cream Avery from the PaperNest Dolls to work with.   I colored this little cutie up with my SN markers, then fussy cut her out.  After assembling a sunburst background, made with shimmer and plain yellow CS, I added a curved border with a stamped sentiment.  I placed Avery , then added a glitter circle “sun” – and THOUGHT I was finished!!  However, my darling pup decided to help, and got his grubby little nose all over this project while he was checking out what he could fix on the card.   So, I had dirty little doggy nose smudges in a few places :(  The image was pretty firmly adhered, so I had to figure out a fix.   I re-cut some of the sun rays, and patched over some of the marks, but there was an obvious smudge on the bottom white part…..I covered it up with an ice cream brad….which bothers me to no end, because I liked the clean white portion….I guess an ice cream fits the mood better than dog nose marks :)
