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

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!!
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

In The Pink – #122 Special Occasion
I 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
I would like to enter the following challenges with this:

I 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:
…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:

Artistic Inspirations – ATG #174
I 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

Hi 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!!

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!
I 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!
