Steam Punk Bunny


It's a challenge at 
The Crafters Cafe Challenge
the theme this round is 
LAYER IT UP
OR CAS using Yellow

the sponsors are
Rick St Dennis
Creative Bug on the Loose
and 
My Besties
==================

For my card, I'm working with My Besties and the image is Steam Punk Bunny.
I used both colored pencils and markers on the image.  I trimmed it down and then edged it with Antique Linen distress ink.  The post card is from a pad by DCWV.   The sentiment stamp, from Recollections, is stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and the clear embossing powder.  It's also edged with the Walnut Stain ink.  The hinges are die set from Elizabeth Craft and I cut them from kraft cs.  I then pounced walnut stain on and then dipped it into clear embossing powder to make them shine.  Everything was added to a kraft side fold cs base.
I hope you have fun playing along with us and I wish you all the very best of luck in the challenge.

Pink Winter


Hello, it's time to start the New Year at
Scrap From Your Heart

To start the new year off the theme is
 Winter in  Pink

For my card I started with a white card front and I blended Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemon Aid and Mustard Seed.
I cut the two hills with a stitched die and edged them in Spun Sugar.
The image is a stamp from My Favorite Things and colored with pencils and cut with the coordinated die.  The YAY is also from My Favorite Things cut in pink cs and faux stitched with a white gel pen.  The bottom sentiment is stamped with the coordinating stamps from MFTs and stamped in Picked Raspberry and then with clear embossing powder. 
I added clear crystals about and a couple of dots of pink Neuvo drops as well.

I hope you have fun playing with us this month and I wish you luck

Cowabunga



Hello everyone,
time for another challenge at
Creative Knockouts Challenge

For this challenge the theme is Anything Goes and the sponsor is Imagine That! 

For my card, I'm using the image 'Party Cow'  and I used marker and pencil and glitter gel pens and a wink of stella to fill the glitter in the champagne on the image.
I trimmed the image tight and rounded the top corners.
I used a piece of scrap that I had left over from My Favorite Things in the teal and white hearts.  The copper foil cs is from DCWV.  Which, was then added on to a teal side fold cs base.  I added pretty teal and clear sequins as well as clear crystals scattered about.
I hope you all have fun playing along and I wish you the best of luck in the challenge as well.

Monkey Business


Hello Everyone,
It's time for another sketch challenge at 
Try Stampin' on Tuesday
(see below for the sketch)


For my card, I started with a digi from Bugaboo and I used distress ink to coloring the monkey and glitter gel pen to color the balloon.
I trimmed it down and clipped the corners round.
The papers used to complete the sketch are from Tim Holtz, Recollections and DCWV and all were in my scrap box.
I set it all on a side fold kraft cs base.
The sentiment was a stamp set I received as a gift and I'm not sure the maker, sorry, but was stamped with Walnut Stain distress ink and lifted with dimension tape.  I added Neuvo drops in cream and orange around the image and it's ready to go.


Here is the sketch:

Use at least three embellishments, i.e., gems, flowers, brads
Use at least two patterned papers.
Use at least one living thing that flies, such as a bird, butterfly, insect, etc.





Our sponsor for this challenge is Ching-Chou and I am using the image Garden Daisy.  I used colored pencils on the image and highlighted with glitter gel pens.  This will also cover my 'one' with my flying fairy in all her glory and to add an insect on the side of the pot (doesn't fly but is also a living thing). The image was cut with a stitched oval die from My Favorite Things
For my 'two papers' they are both from the same Recollections pad and coordinate with each other and cut with a larger oval from My Favorite Things and the chevron paper was cut with a grass edge die also from My Favorite Things. 
For my 'three embellishments' I am using three different paper flowers in the corners of the card. 
The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers and is stamped with Lucky Clover distressed ink.  All set on a pale orange cs front and then set on a dark orange cs base with a side fold.
