Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 136

The current challenge at Lawn Fawnatics is to make the sentiment the star.  You can find the challenge here. 


I chose the large XOXO as my sentiment and used patterned paper from LF to die cut the XOXO.  Stitched Circle to cut out the white background and the little birdies from LF Happy Hugs.


I also decided to make this a circle card and embellished with a couple of sequins from LF.

InkyPaws color challenge 185

 Today I am playing along with color challenge 185 at Inky Paws Challenge.  I chose my new Stamptember stamp set from Newtons Nook with the adorable kitty and dog that you can put on the sofa snuggling.  I was not able to purchase the coordinating dies for this set so I had to fussy cut the images.


I stamped the images using my Misti and then I colored with Copics.  



The colors were Coral, Wine Red, Denim Blue and Caramel Brown.


Thanks for looking.

Lawn Fawn Challenge 135

 Lawn Fawn Challenge 135 is Coffee, Tea or Treats


I chose the Thanks a Latte set for my images.  I stamped the mug and the teacup and colored them with copic markers.  Then I used the stitched rectangles to cut out a white panel and I used the snowflake stencil to add blue and pink snowflakes.  I stamped the scarf for the mug on Lawn Fawn patterned paper and die cut it, the whipped cream and the marshmallows.


I just received an order from Lawn Fawn today and I had the blue striped paper in it so I cut the panel the size of the card base with the largest stitched rectangle.  I did add some stickles to the teacups eyes for some sparkle.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black.






Thanks for looking.

Guest Designer on Penny Black Saturday Challenge


 I am a guest designer at Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes or Spooky and I am so excited.  This is the first time that I have ever been a guest designer.


I chose the Spooky. The stamp set that I used is actually called Spooky.  I stamped the jack-o-lantern trio and the cat & mouse on the broom on white cardstock, colored them with copic markers and then fussy cut them out.  I used my Distress Oxide Inks and blender brushes to create the background - I did splatter it with water and was able to create the sky look that I was going for.


The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock and cut out with a punch.  The finished front was mounted on a black card base.


Thanks for looking.

MFT Color Challenge 198

 Playing along with a color challenge at MFT - Challenge 198




I used the Bitty Bears and the Blueprints Dienamics - both from MFT.  I colored the bears with Copic markers and I added the red to the banner by sponging the ink onto white cardstock.  The sentiment is from Christmas SELFies.  Then I stamped the little present in the darker green ink around the border.

Thanks for looking.

Lawn Fawnatics challenge 134 - monochromatic

 The new challenge at Lawn Fawnatics is #134 Monochromatic this is something new for me.  I do not create many monochromatic cards.  


I have been working with the Here we go a-waddling set so I decided to use that for this challenge and I picked the color purple.  So I used shades of purple/violet.



I also used the stitched hillside borders to create my snow.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
