Baby Feet

Good morning :)  Today is the start of a new challenge in the Sheepski Designs Facebook group!  It’s always ATG with a Sheepski Designs image, and there are LOTS to choose from :)  Andrea is always busy bringing new ideas to life, so there’s something for everyone!  To help out with shopping a bit, here’s a discount code that you are welcome to use:

I fell in love with this image, Baby Feet, as soon as I saw it, knowing it would be perfect on any kind of baby card <3  I’m short of baby girl cards right now, so colored it up with a pink blanket.  I went with a CAS design, layering the image, that I partially fussy cut, over a piece of embossed white card stock, then framing it all in white.  I cut the sentiment with a Tattered Lace die, and added a few pearls to the corners as the only embellishment.  Hope you like it, and hope to see you over at the group for our challenge!!

A very special girl just turned 3, and she told me that she liked My Little Pony toys.  I had this image from Scrapper’s Delights that I knew would be perfect for her card :)  I printed off the sentiment at the same time I printed the image, then colored it up with my Prismacolor pencils, adding some white gel pen accents.  I muddled around trying different layouts, but settled on a CAS design, bringing in the colors of the mane and tail with some rainbow plaid paper that I edged with millions (ok, it seemed like that many) of dots that I made with a white gel pen.  I matted everything with yellow and attached it to a pink card base :)

Bear Babies

Baby Bears

Hi there!! I hope you are enjoying your summer!!  Today I have a card for you that I made for the current challenge at Creative Fingers.  This challenge, we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps

and Elvenstar Art

All of our challenges are ATG, so I hope you can join in the fun!!

Bear Babies

I was given the image  Teddy Bear Topper, by Bugaboo, to work with.  I’m running very short of baby girl cards, so I colored the bears, with my Prismacolors, in traditional “girly” colors.  I added the sentiment on my computer when I printed the image.  The image and sentiment pretty much say it all, so I went with a fairly simply design, using some coordinating stripe paper, and some baby die cuts, that I cut with a DoCraft die :)

Congrat Feathers

Feather Congrats

Congrat FeathersI REALLY stepped out of my comfort zone with this card!! Not only does it not have a colored stamp on it, but it is CAS!!! This was partly out of necessity, as my printer was out of ink, and I wanted to get a card into a few challenges.  I recently purchased some new dies….the scribble is a Tim Holtz die, the feathers are some extremely inexpensive no name dies that I found on Amazon, and the sentiment is Tattered Lace .  I threw a few sequins on, and thought it really didn’t need anything else.  I really like the clean and classy look to this, and it will be nice to have a few wedding cards on hand for the summer :)

Butterfly Hugs

Butterfly HugsI was cleaning in my craft room the other day, and just realized the sheer magnitude of all the stuff that I – a. Never use   b. Forgot I had  c. Am saving for the right project

I’m going to attempt to use some of it…Bit by bit :) I’m not sure if I ever used these Kaiser Craft stamps before, but they are beautiful!! I stamped and embossed them, then cut them out with a Nelly Snellen circle die.  I got a HUGE pack of black and white paper a few years ago…Many coordinating prints that I’ve turned to once in a while, but not as often as the package size warrants!  I cut a few circles out of a few of the patterns, then stamped and embossed a small LDRS sentiment on another plain circle.  After gluing them down on the background paper, I saw that some definition was needed!  As it was too late to mat them, I used 2 different size dies to make frames for each circle :) This was all the card needed.  As CAS as I get!!

Hi there :) I made this card completely by using the sketch inspiration from MFT Sketch Challenge and the color and stash inspiration from the Butterfly Challenge. I took a look at this sketch:

MFT Sketch Challenge 322 #mftstamps

…And then saw that the Butterfly Challenge had the theme of G is for Glossy Accents, with the color option of Slate Blue. I stamped the butterflies (Inkadinkadoo) all over the backing paper, then cut the frame from some slate blue card stock with my Cricut. I traced where the frame would sit, then used my Prismacolors to only color the inside part…..Of course using blue shades….Including the slate. I took a strip of ivory edged with some black pinstriping, then a strip of white, which I stamped a LDRS sentiment on.  Finally, I stamped and colored one more butterfly, which I covered with Glossy Accents, and added it as an accent.  The joys of photography (when it’s a bit dark), don’t really show off the colors in a true way, or the shine of the Glossy Accents….unless you really zoom in a lot.   I think this makes a cheerful, yet classy card for a friend!!

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

Zebras

Zebras

ZebrasI had the idea for this card the other day, and was really excited to get to it, because it was back to some of my old rubber stamping techniques.  I used an old rubber-stamp of a zebra, I don’t know the brand name, but I got it at Michael’s as part of a set of animals.  I used masking to make a row of them to run across the strip of white card stock.  The sentiment stamp is also an oldie…..it’s by Stampology.  I used a Nellie Snellen circle die to cut it out and to mat it in the turquoise.  I’ve had the animal print Cuttlebug embossing folders for a long time, but haven’t used the zebra (or tiger???) one yet.  It was perfect to use with CoreD’inations Black Magic paper :)  After sanding the embossing to expose the white, I matted everything with turquoise and added a few small brads to the corner.  Loving the CAS design of this card :)

Birthday Swing

Swing Into Spring

HiBirthday Swing there! Today, I have a card made with Ching Chou Kuik‘s Gentle As A Breeze. There is a challenge in the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group where participants use this image to make a project.  I actually made a card with this stamp previously, but learned that wine does not go well with coloring! I wasn’t happy with it, so I got my SN markers out and made this one :) With the colors of the image being so bright, I opted for leaving the rest of the card quite subdued. Some embossed paper for the background, a Poopy Stamps birthday die,  pearls, and a few white bows was all this spring-like card needed :) I hope you like it!!

Feeling Crappy

Feeling C….y

Hi there!! As we ease into February, we also have a new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers for the next 2 weeks.  We have a regular sponsor, the fabulous Rick St. Dennis! :)

There is soooo much to choose from at his store, that it’s more than worth your while to enter for a chance to win one of his fantastic images!

Feeling CrappyI was in a “mood” when I got this stamp…..you can only guess what kind!! Lol!  The mood passed, so I decided to make a Get Well card.  The inside of this card says “…..that you’re feeling crappy”.  I printed the image onto kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment was printed at the same time as the image.  I wanted “something” to embellish it, and came up with a roll of toilet paper, rather than ribbon or bling :)  I cut a strip of paper, ran it through with my perforating blade to make the squares, then rolled it up.  I tore a few sheets off….just because :)  Hopefully this card will elicit a smile from the recipient!

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 :)
