Birthday Bear


This is my team card for

Pattie's Creations.

The theme this month is Bears.

For my card, I'm working with the image Bear with Balloons. 
I printed the image on kraft card stock and then colored the image with colored pencils.   I die cut the balloons and sentiment tag and then edged them all with Antique Linen distress ink.  The birthday sentiment was stamped in Antique Linen and clear emboss powder and lifted with foam adhesive.   The wood grain paper is from DCWV and everything was set on a side fold kraft cs base.  I added buttons and Neuvo drops to the top.
I hope you have fun playing along with this challenge this month.

Thanks for stopping by.

For my card, I'm using an image from Dr, Digi, Lil Jason.  I used all markers on the image.  I trimmed it down and framed it with Kraft CS.  The front panel spider web cs is from Recollections, a Halloween pad.  I inserted a piece of black cs between the Digi and the panel and used a white gel pen on the faux stitching.  The sentiment was colored with marker and then framed with black cs.  Everything was then added to a side fold black cs base.

Pumpkin Stack




Hello --It's an 
ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE
at Brown Sugar Challenge

our sponsor this month is 


For my card, I am using the image, Stacked Pumpkins.  I used markers and a water brush on the pumpkins.  For the card front, I blended Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans and Soot across the front.
Out of black card stock I cut using Lawn Fawn: the fence, using Penny Black: the tree and using MFTs: the stitched flag.  The sentiment was stamped in white embossing powder and a holiday stamp by Avery Elle.  The leaves were cut with a Spellbinders die 'foliage' out of scrap blended with Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint.  All set on a black cs front and then again on a black cs side fold base.  Spooooooky.

I hope you have fun playing along with this month's challenge, remember, it's anything goes.

Owl Boo

This is my team card for

Pattie's Creations.

The theme this month is Halloween

I am using the image, 'owl silhouette'.  I masked off the owl and then I blended Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distressed inks.  Using the die cut from MFTs, I cut the grass out of black cs.  The moon is a circle punch that I dipped a couple of times into Lawn Fawn glow in the dark embossing powder.  The multi dips gave it an awesome texture and I love that it glows.   The sentiment was edged with Wilted Violet distress ink.
I hope you have fun playing along with this challenge this month.
