Get Inky! Stamps Challenge

Happy April Fools Day!

Welcome to the first Get Inky! Challenge.  Our challenge is a sketch challenge. 

First challenge begins Monday April first. This is what I had in mind.

Each participant will receive a digi of their choice from Blue Moon Creation. 

Here's my take on the sketch..................

The paper is a from a Bo Bunny bargain pack.  The cupcake is from Get Inky!'s Sew Sweet Cupcakes Stamp Set.  I colored with Copics to match the paper.   The banners are Scraptastical Kreations Element Me This file

Our challenges at Get Inky! will take place every other week.  You don't have to use Get Inky! stamps or digis to play along, but we love it when you do!  Please link back to our challenge in your blog post.  NO backdating.  You may enter up to three creations.  The DT will pick a top three, and a random winner will be picked for a free digi stamp by Blue Moon Creation.  Get Inky! reserves the right to remove your entry if you do not follow these rules.

You can shop for Get Inky! Stamps HERE & Get Inky! Digis HERE.

All that Stickles Yellow Linky Party

Happy Saturday!!

It's time for a new linky party at All that Stickles blog

This week's theme is to use Yellow Stickles on your crafty project. 
For my project I made a card.  I try not to create cards for my ATS projects, but this digi just screamed card.  =)


I colored my digi with Copics (see list below).  I added Yellow Stickles to outline her hair, and Patina Stickles to her wings.   The tissue paper behind the digi is packing from Verve Stamps.  I love to reuse everything I can.  I do like how this card turned out.  Very uplifting, I think.  =)

Paper Nest Digi Card

Happy Thursday!!

I wanted to share this little cutie with you all.   I have been 'practicing' my coloring skills.  I still think I need lots and lots more practice.  But my skills are coming along.  Also, I need to figure how to align things straight.  I didn't notice the pearls were not perfectly aligned until after the pciture was taken, and, of course, glued down.  =) 

I created this card for The Paper Nest Contest

After submitting my entry to Paper Nest, the wonderful Christine told me about byLori Designs chalenge using the color green.  So I thought I'd enter it.

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Creation

Happy Wednesday out there in Scrappy Land!  :-)
I wanted to share with you this sweet little card I made (and sent with my granddaughter's Easter package). 
I used the egg cut from Scraptastical Kreations' Calendar Cuties file (April Bear).  I enlarged it to about 5 X 7 and created a welded shaped base.  I used textured cardstock for the colors.  I think textured cardstock gave this card more depth.  And of course for a granddaughter, the card must have Stickles.  I outlined the pattern using yellow and pink Stickles. 
The banner is a cut from Scraptastical Kreations' Element Me This file.  I stamped the sentiment, flower, and butterfly from the newest Peachy Keen Stamps club set.  I then colored the flower and butterfly with Copics, plus a touch of Stickles.

All that Stickles Green Linky Party

Click HERE for the Lucky Leprechaun Hop
Happy Saturday! 
It's finally March.  Spring is around the corner.  I just hope the weatherman gets the memo.  ;-)
This week's All that Stickles linky party theme is Green Stickles.  
For my creation, I made a beer mug shaped card.  Since St. Patrick's Day is just a few weeks away, and I think of green colored beer, I thought this card would be perfect.  I used the mug from Scraptastical Kreations' Beary Luck fileThe base is a welded shape card.  Thought it would be fun to use vellum for the mug.  I wanted a frosty mug look, but my vellum had too pearl of a finish.  But think it worked ok.  Green Stickles were used outline the mug.  The foam is outlined in crushed olive distress Stickles.   The tag is another Scraptastical Kreations' file, Element Me This.  The sentiment is drawn with my cameo and marker holder.
