Hey Girl

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Even though Autumn is upon us, it hasn't cooled off much here at all... maybe a couple degrees, lol. I'm so ready for Fall I can hardly stand it! It's time for another fun challenge at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog and I'm excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #86 - Anything Goes! We know everyone loves this particular theme and we love indulging you! Our sponsors this time are Sparkle N Sprinkle, Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Limited Runs Stamps, so come on over and play!

I chose to play with the very amusing 'Knitty Nora' from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps to create my friendship card. I stuck with a pretty simple design - I love fish tail banners so I hand-cut a fairly large one and a smaller one. I used a double stitched die to cut the focal image... you know how I love my stitched dies! The 'Hey Girl' flair came as a freebie in my Freckled Fawn order and I thought it really complimented this image. What a hoot! :D


I made Nora's earrings and necklace into rice pearls using Glossy Accents and a white gel pen. I also used Glossy Accents on her glasses lenses, lol! The only embellishments other than the flair are four pearl brads. Can you believe it... no bow on this card, lol!


I decorated the inside with leftover strips of patterned paper and gray cardstock used on the front, and stamped a sentiment. Loving how quirky this turned out! ;)


Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Basic Gray cardstock, Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Echo Park Victorian Gardens 6x6 papers
  • Stamps: Dr. Digi's House of Stamps 'Knitty Nora' digital image, Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments 2 stamp set

hello

Hi everyone! Hope you've all had a great week! Love my job but love my weekends more, lol! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends and I'm super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #40 - Monochrome! Come play with us! We have some awesome sponsors this time:



I chose to work with Morgan's ArtWorld 'Valentine 1' digi for this challenge. I created a CAS note card in shades of green. Although I have several favorite colors, green is my all-time favorite and has been since childhood. :)


I thoroughly enjoyed coloring this image! I generally struggle with clean and simple but once this image was colored, the card just kind of put itself together. I layered the focal panel on foam for dimension, and the only embellishments I used were flat-back pearls and a couple die cuts.


Here's another angled view. There are two layers on the butterfly for a little more 'flutter' and I colored the top layer with clear Wink of Stella and added some flat-back pearls. I left the inside blank, as it's a note card. I'm really loving how this turned out!


Proud to enter this note card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, GKD Fresh Asparagus and Jelly Bean Green cardstock, Marco's 40# vellum
  • Stamps: Morgan's ArtWorld 'Valentine 1' digital image
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- DG2, DG4, CG1, CG2, LG2, LG3
  • Dies/Punches: Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A & B dies, Mama Elephant Hello Script die, Stampin' Up! Bold Butterfly Thinlits
  • Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, Stampin' Up! Pearls

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and are inspired to create something for our Monochrome challenge this time! Be sure to check out all the fun digital images at Angie's Digital Stamps and Morgan's ArtWorld! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

You're the best

Hi everyone! Hope the month of September is off to a fabulous start for you! Today is my mom's and little brother's birthday and even though they are both in heaven, I'm thinking of them today with a smile in my heart. The lovely Barbara Campbell and I are co-hosting once again over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog and we have a fun challenge in store for you this week! Our theme is Color Inspiration - Fall Colors and Barbara came up with this photo inspiration:


What a gorgeous color palette! So we want to see these bright Fall colors, along with any neutral, on your project! We're being sponsored again this time by Gina K Designs and One Happy Cut so come play with us!

I created a CAS thank you card featuring the inlaid die cut technique using the gorgeous Blushing Flower Branch from One Happy Cut. The front and inside sentiments are from the WPlus9 Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set.


I used kraft layered on black as my netural base colors and incorporated all five of the colors in the inspiration photo. I used some of my favorite stitched dies and can you believe it... no ribbon or bows... just a few flat-back pearls! LOVE how this turned out! :D


I actually cut the flower branch in all five colors and used 'pieces and parts' to put back into the negative space on the front, then cut four of the flowers off and used them on the inside along with the stamped sentiment.


Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Marco's Brown Bag cardstock, GKD Dark Chocolate cardstock; GKD Cherry Red, Tomato Soup, Wild Dandelion, Fresh Asparagus and Jelly Bean green cardstock scraps

I used a variety of sequins along with hearts and stars glitter in the shaker pouch which I created with my fuse tool. I used three colors of ribbons in my signature big bow which really turned out nice and fluffy!

Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to share some exciting news... I've joined the Creatalicious Challenges design team! Woo-hoo! So excited - this team is made up of some really talented ladies from all over the world! I'm happy to share my debut project for Challenge #98 - Anything Goes with optional Anniversary! We're being sponsored this time by Simon Says Stamp, so come on over and play! I created an anniversary card featuring a bold floral background with an assortment of paper flowers and a stamped sentiment on a hand-cut fishtail flag. The front flap of the card base is cut about 3/4" shorter than the back flap. I'm really happy with how this turned out. :)


I decided on a red, black and white color combo which I think is very romantic and perfect for an anniversary card. I layered a pretty floral print vellum over a bold polka dot print which I layered on thick foam and then onto red and black cardstock layers.


I kept the inside fairly simple with a stamped sentiment on the white panel which I embellished with strips of the polka dot paper and black cardstock from the front, then layered the entire panel on the red cardstock.


Proud to enter this anniversary card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Marco's Black cardstock, GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock scrap, Stampin' Up! Regals Designer Series Paper Stack, Stampin' Up! Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack

I chose several coordinating papers from a vintage paper pack that I thought went real well with Molly! Of course, I used some of my favorite stitched dies and added my signature big bow. And I paired this fun image with a couple fun sentiments.

it's all about you

Hi everyone! Happy middle of August! I'm SO ready for some cool, crisp fall weather! It's time for another fun challenge over at the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I'm stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #84 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by Lawn Fawn, Heartfelt Creations and Julia Spiri Digital Stamps! Come play with us!

I chose the absolutely gorgeous 'The Flower Girl' digi from Julia Spiri and what fun she was to color! I went with one of my favorite color combos of green and purple for my girl card. I used two coordinating patterned papers layered on purple cardstock. I paired the digital image with sentiments that could be used for a variety of occasions.


I used my fairly new Spectrum Aqua markers (without water) for the small flowers because they have a fine point end and are much easier to use in small spaces. First time I've used the Aquas and I think I'm gonna like them! I dug through my ribbon stash and found some rockin' purple and green plaid ribbon which I thought went really well with the papers. I'm really loving sequins these days so I added a few of them too! ;)


I stamped the inside sentiment on a plain panel which I decorated with leftover scraps of the striped paper and purple cardstock from the front.


Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Fresh Asparagus and Wild Orchid cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz cardstock, Stampin' Up! Painted Blooms DSP
  • Stamps: Julia Spiri 'The Flower Girl' digital image, Stampin' Up! Endless Birthday Wishes
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- LY2, LY3, DG2, CG1, FS2, FS3, FS6, BP2, BP6; Spectrum Aqua- Bud Green, Wildflower, Heather, Rose Pink, Blossom
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stithced Oval Layers dies
  • Accessories: MISTI, Studios Blackbird ribbon, Doodlebug Design purple sequins

dude

Hi everyone! I'm certainly not complaining, but this week has literally flown by! I almost feel like I've somehow lost a couple days, lol! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and I'm so stoked to shared my DT inspiration project for Challenge #38 - Anything Goes. Come on over and play with us! I think you'll agree that we have some pretty awesome sponsors this time:




Woot-woot! How about that?! ;) I chose the super cool KennyK Stamps 'Frankie Knuckles' image from my stash for my any occasion guy card. I L.O.V.E. this image and what fun this was to color!


Papers and embellishments were kept at a bare minimum for this kind of CAS card. After all, cool guys really don't dig you going overboard with embellishments. This patterned paper looked so good with the navy cardstock, and the only other thing needed were a few gray flat-back pearls.


I decorated the inside with a scrap of the patterned paper used on the front which I layered on the navy cardstock. The front and inside sentiments are from a relatively new stamp set that went perfectly with this image. :D


Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White and In The Navy cardstock, GKD Pool Side 6x6 patterned paper
  • Stamps: KennyK Stamps Frankie Knuckles digi, Paper Smooches Word Salad and Incognito stamp sets
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG7, FS2, FS3, LY3, CG4, TB1; Black Copic Multi-Liner pen
  • Accessories: MISTI, Doodlebug Design flat-back pearls

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found a little inspiration to create something for our Anything Goes challenge this time! We know you love that theme! And be sure to check out all the fun goodies at Toadstool PrintablesLacy Sunshine and KennyK Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
