Good morning!!! It’s Sunday, and that means that it’s time for another challenge over at Come And Get It Challenges We have a super fun theme this week, and it’s “Nautical”. Our generous sponsor for the challenge is Papernest Dolls.
I was given Sailor Owen to work with for my DT project, and chose to go with the traditional red, white and navy color scheme. After coloring the image with my SN markers, I cut a cloud shaped top, then inked in some clouds for a background. I have been hoarding this nautical paper for a while, and this was the perfect card to use it on!! I just received this Memory Box die in the mail…talk about good timing!! I layered it with a bit of cheesecloth, then grabbed on of the wooden anchor embellishments that I snagged at Michael’s in the $1.50 bins
Hello!! It’s time for another challenge over at Come and Get It. This time, we have a fairly easy theme…..Make It Square. We have 2 sponsors, this time, and they are:
and Star Stampz
Hope to see a lot of entries with the square shape
I used image #360 from Oddball Art….Tiny Kawaii Dragon on a Mushroom. I figured it was time for something really bright and funky, and I remembered that I had the mushroom printed paper in my scrap file….it came from the very first paper pad that I ever purchased, so it is quite old…and I am quite forgetful, so I have no idea who it’s by! I colored the image to coordinate with the paper, then lay everything out, using another scrap of paper from the same pad, a die cut flower from my stash, and then I die cut some mushrooms with a die from Cheery Lynn. A quick stamped sentiment, some pink twine, and some of my homemade enamel like dots (from melted pony beads ) and the card was done!
Here is the one and only “real” Easter card that I made this year. It was a DT make over at Come and Get It Challenges, but my blog was acting up, and not letting me on….and my brain was functioning about as well!! For that challenge, we were kindly sponsored by Polkadoodles, which is where I got this adorable image from, Crocus, from the Darling Bud collection. I colored her up with my SN markers, then added more shading and definition with my Prismacolor pencils. I lightly stenciled a background in with Distress Inks. I had a brain lapse with the edge….was thinking I could just cut an edge border with the die I was using…nope, lol. I pieced the edge in, and quite like the result of my boo boo!! Tied a big fluffy bow, and added the sentiment and a bunch of pearl accents to finish this card off. Another pastel project…..what is coming over me??
I’d like to enter this in:
Deep Ocean Challenge - #152 Easter
Hello!! It’s hard to believe that it’s the for another challenge over at Come and Get It!! Our theme this time is Cards For Kids, and we are sponsored by the generous PaperNest Dolls.
I must confess, time got away on me, and this was a late make!!
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
I’d like to enter this card in the following challenges:

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.
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
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!
I 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!!
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.
I 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.
