Challenge #73 @ Tammy's Scrapin Corner

Good morning! It's been a really really long weekend. I'm having issues with the kids. It just wasn't a good weekend at all. They all want to blame Kevin for all their problems. Their problems... that they don't do what they are asked to do. Anyway... its just been a long weekend with a bunch of grumpy teenagers who hurt everyones feelings and I'm exhausted. I was even contemplating leaving all my DTs for now, but you know what? I enjoy them.. I might ask for a week or two off LOL, but I'm not leaving what I enjoy. Anyway.. enough of my whining!! LOL Not sure what the heck I was thinking having all 3 near enough that they were all teens at once! Okay... have a great week everyone LOL!!

This week we are on Challenge #73 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner and the theme this week is to Use A Digi! I made two things for this challenge... one for each of our wonderful sponsors -- Deasy Designs and Bugaboo Designs.

Here is my first creation... it is an ATC!

I used Deasy Designs for this cute little ATC! I used the puppy and the sun... they are so adorable! These are from the Summer Girl set. I printed the pup and the sun out twice and I popped the actual little pup to be looking over the label and then the middle of the sun I popped as well. I colored everything with Copic. I love these images! I added some copper leafing around the edge of the tag

Sun: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y18
Pup: E55, E57, E59
Bow and Glasses: V12, V15, V17


Here is my second creation.. using a Bugaboo Image:

This image is Make It Snappy: Congratulations from Bugaboo Stamps. I love this image! I decoupaged the Congratulations label and some of the flowers. I have colored the image with Copic. I added some lace, the black is a punch and the silver on the side, those are buttons. I also added the two rings on the side. I thought that was a cute addition.

Challenge #174 at One Stitch At A Time

Good morning!

We are on Challenge #174 over at One Stitch At A Time and this challenge is Anything Goes! Here is my card:

The awesome image is a Delicious Doodles image - Vintage Norton. I love this image and I think it was really awesome without any coloring at all. This is my favorite simple card that I've done. I printed the image along with the sentiment that I created. I added the three small pearls and the ribbon and thats it. I kept it all black and white. I added the sentiment to the inside and that is the card - very simple!

Challenge #170 At Meljen's Designs!!

Good morning!!

Today's challenge is Challenge #170 @ Meljen's Designs and the theme for our challenge this week is Doodling! Here is my card with some doodling!

I used the awesome Chinese Dragon image from Meljen's Designs! I did a small amount of decoupage.. just the head and the front whisker. I distressed the edges of some of the paper. I added the punched scallop edge to the brown paper. I added doodling on the bottom edge of the front of the card and around the sentiment a little bit. I also doodled the Happy Birthday in Chinese. The stamp is from Hero Arts. I added the three brads at the bottom for the finishing touch. The papers are all from a Club Scrap pack.  And that is it! I colored the image with Copic.

Challenge #72 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Begins Today!!

Good morning everyone! Well... I survived all the girls and it was good to send them all home LOL! Bailey seemed to have a nice time though, so that's good.  She did have a bit of a clean up afterwards though. That was the deal though, everyone comes over, but you are responsible for putting the house back in order. Alright... I'm off soon to start my week. I hope you all have a great week ahead of you!

And today we dive into the world of Fantasy Creatures over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner with Challenge #72. I created two cards for our challenge this week:

This is my first card using our sponsor MilkCoffee's image - Soya: Spread the Seeds. Such a cutie!!! I fussy cut the image and popped the wings. I also used stickles on the wings to add some glitter to them. The rectangle die cut is a Spellbinders die. The two flourishes are from Cheery Lynn... it is the large and the small one. The sentiment is from a group of Thank You sentiments from Sentimental Susan. I tried to keep the colors simple by using a lot of white. I colored the image with Copic. And all the papers were from my box of scraps... I'm trying to use up some of my scraps!

Green: YG01, YG05, YG07, YG17
Bag: E25, E37, E39
Hair: YR20, YR31, YR23, YR24

Here is my second card! I used our other awesome sponsor, SKdigis! And these awesome three monsters, Happy Monster, Melting Monster and Silly Monster. I decided to use red, white and blue with this card. All the monsters were colored with Copic. I was able to use more scraps for this card too!! Yay!! I popped the eyes on these three and the little one tooth on the Silly Monster. LOL Cute aren't they! I made this a Happy Birthday card and I thought it would be great for a group card.. Happy Birthday from us all sort of thing!
