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!!

Little Sweetie

Sweet Little One

 Little SweetieHello, today I have a card featuring the image Precious by Conie Fong.  This little sweetie captured my heart as soon as I saw her.  I’m busy making baby cards, and thought that this image would be perfect for an extra special baby girl card!! I colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils, then die/fussy cut her out and matted the image with a pink cardstock that coordinated with the background paper that I found in my stash…..how pretty are all those beautiful pink daisies??  I used the sketch from The Sketchy Challenges

as my guideline for a layout.  I pretty much stuck exactly to the sketch, using coordinating cardstocks, lattice panels that I cut with a Sizzix die, and adding some pretty pink daisies, that I added Flower Soft centres to.

I have used Bumble Bee Blossom for my inspiration card.  I colored the image with SN markers  and did some fine detail accent work with a ultra fine point pen.  I made the background by stencilling the honeycomb pattern with embossing ink, then embossing with gold, inking with distress ink, randomly stamping a script stamp, then sprinkling some pink and white embossing powder over it all to give the impression of pollen :)  I layered the image on some gold, then a doily (which was the perfect pink….go figure!!), added some lace, ribbon and pearls….and finished with a small sentiment.  I love this image, and had so much fun making this card!! Hopefully, we will see you join us in the challenge….who knows, you may be one of the winners :)

Smile!

Smile!Hello!! I won this image on last month’s Club KennyK Facebook challenge, and just loooove it!! Retro Selfie is so sassy, but I just had to give her a vintage look when I chose my color palette.  I colored the image with my Prismacolors, then went to work assembling the card. The background paper is from a stack that was a magazine freebie a few years ago. I immediately thought of the film strip tape from Tim Holtz when I saw this image, as well as the die cut film strip that I had for ages. I didn’t have any pink roses in the shade I wanted, so I made these using a punch and paired them up with an off white rose from my stash and some gold fern leaves that I die cut with a Frantic Stamper die. It needed something more, so I coated some wire with Flower Soft, twisted it up, and added a few sprigs here and there. I stamped and embossed a gold “smile” sentiment, then stamped over it with black for a shadow effect.

Baby Girl

Baby BearHi there :)  We have a new ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers, and the sponsor is the one and only Teddy Bo!!!

I was so excited when I received my May Teddy Bea02 image, and could hardly wait to color her up with my SN markers :)  The rest of the girls have made some amazing cards with their Teddy Bo images as well, so stop by the blog and be inspired!!  After coloring the image, I found some pink printed and pink glitter paper, a small piece of pink lace, and mauve ribbon, and lay everything out.  The sentiment was cut with a DoCraft die that I borrowed from a good friend.  I punched some stars to put in the corners to go with both the stars on one of the papers and the glittery paper.  I hope you make the time to enter a project at Creative Fingers….ATG, with a chance to win some adorable images :)

Mushroom Dragon

Cheerfully Spring :)

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:

Oddball Art

and Star Stampz

Hope to see a lot of entries with the square shape :)

Mushroom Dragon

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!

Hello there!! Today I have a card made with another gorgeous Aurora Wings image, Flower Ballerina .  I colored her with my Prismacolors, and when everything kept going well, my stress at screwing it up increased!! The detail in this beauty was almost too much for my old eyes! I managed to get it done, though, and set to assembling a card.  I thought the coloring was bad…..I can’t remember ever having so many issues putting a card together!! The papers I was intending on using just clashed terribly with the image colors, the dies I was going to use are lost in the mail somewhere, I didn’t have the flowers I wanted to use anymore…..blah blah.  I buckled down and got to work.  I die cut some sheer fabric out of a basic flower shaped die then heated the edges with my gun until they started to twist and curl….a bit of pink was added to the centers before I layered the flower shapes up with some pearl stamens.  I decided to go with some solid card stock instead of messing with the print that didn’t match, and added a few strips of cheesecloth, some pearls and pearl sprays.  Instead of matting the image, I punched one edge to bring some of the darker pink into the scheme of things.  I didn’t have a stamp for the sentiment I wanted, so I used 2.  I had to mask off some of the words, to leave the word “with”…..done that lots of times, what could be the problem???  Well, dummy me didn’t mask off the edge above and below the word, so right when I had everything all figured out, I had these 2 purple lines that weren’t supposed to be there!!! AAAARRRGGGHH!!  Love = heart :)  and some correction tape on the other boo boo.  I was glad to be finished, and extremely pleased with how it turned out, especially with all the issues I had.  I really think the finished product does justice to the beautiful image, and I hope the special lady who receives it loves it :)

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 :)

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.

Hi there!! I can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by! August already, and I haven’t done half the summer stuff I was hoping to do!  It’s also time for another ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers. We have two amazing sponsors for our month long challenge (we’re on summer schedule). They are:

  and  

As always, my teammates have creations that are absolutely stunning, so be sure to stop by and be inspired :)

I was given Leilani by Connie Fong to work with. What a beautiful image, and so much fun to color with my SN markers!  It was screaming “pink!!” at me, so what could I do, but comply? :)  I found some pretty coordinating papers and a doily, and kept arranging them until I was happy.  Then, I went into my flower jar and found some roses to place on top of the pink bow I had put in the corner.  I edged one of the roses in pink, because it was too white, and spritzed the smaller ones with some pearly mist to give them shimmer.  Some pearls, a sentiment and a few gold dragonfly embellishments finished this card off in a way I was very happy with :)
