Hippity Hop

Hello everyone!  Today begins the new challenge at the Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge blog.  The theme this week is Easter.

For my project I used Isobel Bunny Suit.  Unfortunately, the shop is experiencing some technical difficulties, so I cannot link you to where you can find the stamp.  I colored Isabel with Copic markers but I pieced her egg.  I managed to use up a couple of scraps of paper on this card.  I wish that actually made a dent in the number of scraps I have left!

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments images just for playing along.  If you are chosen as the random winner AND you have used a Crafty Sentiments stamp or image, you win extra prizes!  How fun is that?!

Hopefully the shop will be up soon so you can have a crafty browse around the shop.

Thank You!

It is time for the Sweet Sunday post over at Rubbernecker Stamps.  I decided to make a cheerful thank you card this week.

I had this scrap of polka dot paper left over from another project and I thought it would be the perfect starting place for this project.  I pulled out sweet little Clare and colored her with Copic markers to match the paper. The sentiment came from the Best Wishes set which is now available in clear.  You can also get a matching die set to cut it out! 

Rubbernecker Stamps now has a challenge and we would love to see you play along.  You have the chance to win cash to use in the store.  All of the new clear stamps and dies have been released, so some extra cash would be an awesome thing!

Get Well

Welcome back Rubbernecker Fans! It is my turn to be featured over on the Rubbernecker blog. I made this card using the pill bottle from the new clear Get Well set.

I colored the stamp with Copic markers and cut it out using a stitched rectangle die from Echo Park.  The sentiment came from the Best Wishes set which is now in clear.  I cut the curved sentiment apart and stamped it in a straight line to fit my card.

All of the new clear sets are available in the shop along with their matching dies.  It is so exciting!  Don't forget to play along in the challenge because you have a chance to win a gift certificate for the Rubbernecker store.  Those clear sets and matching dies are waiting for you!  So what are you waiting for?!

Young Girl

Hello everyone.  It is time for a new challenge at Creative Knockouts and this week we challenge you to use borders.  I don't use mine often enough, so I was super happy to pull out one of my favorite border punches.

I used this sweet Young Girl stamp form AMB Illustrations.  I thought she was just perfect for a card with springy colors.  You could even use her for Easter with this gorgeous hat.  She is colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.

Our sponsor this week is AMB Illustrations and you have a chance to win 3  single packs or a trio, or a single and a combo.  So many choices!  Click the badge below to check out what is available in the shop.

I hope you will play along with us!

Pretty Locks

Hello MoonFlower fans!  Sorry my post is late.  I completely lost track of the days!  But I have my project to show you!

I chose to work with Ashlee Faery Locks for my project because I thought she would make a pretty spring card.  I have wanted to tackle these curls for a while and I finally got my chance!  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.

Andreia has some gorgeous new designs in the shop.  If you want to know when the newest images are available, come join us in the MoonFlower Facebook group.  You get to know as soon as the images hit the shop and you get to see sneak peeks and have a chance at a giveaway from time to time.  We would love for you to stop by and say hi!

Hello everyone!  Welcome back to another challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner.  This week the challenge is to use buttons on your project.

I used this sweet image from All Dressed Up called Hot Air Balloons.  It was colored with Copics and I fussy cut it by hand.  I was digging through my stash of papers for another project and came across a pad that had this paper in it.  I just knew it was the perfect backdrop for this image.  I pulled my colors from the paper.

This week we have two fabulous sponsors for you.  Click the badges below to go shopping.

Prize of 2 digital images


Prize of 3 digital images

I hope you will play along.

Flying High

This week brings the new challenge and the new release at Sami Stamps.  Sami had some commitments that delayed the release, but it was so worth it!  They are adorable!

I decided to use Playing with My Plane for my project.  The theme for this month is blue.  Unfortunately, my worst nightmare came true and I forgot about the theme until my card was half finished!  I did manage to add some blue though.

This cutie was colored with Copic markers and I used my brand new Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut her out.  I was concerned there would be a learning curve, but it was super simple.

You have all month to join in with the challenge.  Just remember to use a Sami Stamps image and, of course, use blue!  If you don't have a Sami Stamps image, just pop over to the shop and check out the current freebie!
