Creative Knockouts #134: Recipe

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start!  For my second post today, I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#134) where the challenge is....RECIPE! This week's sponsor is Oddball Art, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

The recipe for this week's challenge is: 1 digi image, 1 sentiment, 2 different embellishments, and 2 patterned papers.

Here is my project, featuring "Sweet Sai the Fairy #167". She's fabulous. I do enjoy Lizzy's images and this one is just so sweet with her fun outfit, wings and cute pose!



I used Stardust Stickles on her headband, wings, the bow on her dress, and her shoes. It's always a bit hard to see in the photoMy 2 patterned papers are the glitter stack flag die element in the corner. My 2 different embellies are the sequins and the awesome clear flower from Fun Stampers Journey. The sentiment is from Fun Stampers Journey as well, the set is called Text Happy and I am *in love* with it! You can order online through my Coach website, and have your very own set shipping to your door! Just sayin' ;)

Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop with JessicaLynnOriginal.com

Happy Wednesday! I have been working nonstop for 5 days straight, long days traveling and getting caught up on work after the world's worst norovirus tore through my entire family. I'm getting caught up on crafting (yay!) and blogging...it's a process but I'll get a few up at least!

For this post, I have a very FUN card to share as my second post of the day. I played along with the HUGE Spring 2016 Coffee Lover's blog hop going on now. There are so many awesome sponsors, and page after page of fantastic projects being linked up! JessicaLynnOriginal.com is one of the sponsors, and in addition to the prizes, Jessica Lynn has a brand new FREE DIGI STAMP in her shop right now in honor of this great blog hop. If you miss the freebie, it will be available for purchase following the giveaway period. 

I have used this great image on my project today, it's called Brentwood Owl - I Need More Coffee. TOO CUTE for words!!


Of COURSE, this is a spring-and-coffee themed card, to match the hop. I used my favorite embossed cloud background, green grass and perky spring colors for the project itself. Can you see the little bit of glitter on that delicious steam wafting from his mug!?


I followed a sketch today:

Simply Papercraft #26: AG!

Happy FRIDAY, my lovelies!!! I'm so happy the weekend is here! Today I'm sharing my latest card for Simply Papercraft. Our bi-weekly challenges are ALWAYS "Anything Goes". I love this! Makes it easy and fun to combine challenges and really show off your best work. This week's challenge is sponsored by Star Stampz! As always, fantastic and generous prizes are up for grabs!

For my card today I used the "Be My Valentine" image. I went with soft pastel colors since we are having a tiny bit of spring here in Wisconsin, and I didn't want to jinx it! ;)



Quick recipe - colored with Copics, of course. Die from Spellbinders and Frame Die from MFT. Banner die from Verve. Lots of foam tape. Basic Grey patterned paper. I use Neenah 110# Cover Solar White cardstock for all my images.

That's it for me! TGIF everyone! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to link up your lovelies on the Simply Papercraft blog for your chance to win! We love seeing all of your creations on the linkup :)

Creative Knockouts #132: Die Cuts/Punches!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start!  For my second post today, I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#132) where the challenge is....Die Cuts or Punches! This week's sponsor is The Stamping Boutique, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

Here is my project, featuring "Poppies". Aren't they beautiful? I added a spotlight die and border die in the middle of the image to help REALLY make it pop.



I used my clear Spica AtYou glitter pens over the top of the poppies on this project. It's subtle, so of course in a picture it's a bit hard to see.  I tried taking another photo at an angle to help with that. I also added glitter to the sparkles surrounding the flowers (loose Diamond Dust glitter and a Quickie pen).

Penny's Challenge #268: Anything Goes!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! There is a new challenge this morning over at Penny's Challenge! Must be Wednesday!

I want to share my card for this current challenge where the theme is - ANYTHING GOES! Well that's an easy one. This week's sponsors are Melonheadz and Di's Digis, and they are offering a wonderful prize to lucky stampers!

Here is my project, featuring "Science Kidlettes" from Melonheadz. I love these images that wake up my inner nerd and mix up my passions for art and science!

I got pretty down and dirty with this card. Started with some Basic Grey graph grid patterned paper in a light green. Ran it though my cuttlebug with this honeycomb embossing folder and then oversprayed it with 4 different color metallic ink wash sprays (Red, Gold, Yellow and Green). The kids are colored with Copic markers. I created the sentiment when I spliced the kid images together in Photoshop. Drew a line to ground them and used MFT pierced square die to cut them out. Sequins to tie in the splotchy sprays to the rest of the background and bring the image together with the rest of the card.
