Guest Designer

Today I am so honored to be the guest designer over at Victoria Case Challenge blog.
This weeks challenge is to use the colors Green, Black and Purple and, of course, those colors make you think of Halloween!! I used my VC image "moon witch" for this card, colored it with my Copic markers, but out the image with my nesties and added some really cool PP and then used the Martha Stewart graveyard punch. How great is this? I just love how this card turned out, so simple, yet so cute at the same time.
I hope you all are having a great day, thanks for stopping by. Please go over to VC Stamp challenge to post your creation for this challenge!!!

KLM Challenge

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by again. Today I am showing you a card that I made for Copic Buzz's challenge sponsored by KLM Designs. They have really cute stamps, so go check them out here

This card I made with their pumpkin patch stamp because it just said "fall" and today is the first official day of fall. I colored the pumpkins and apples, etc. with my Copics, then added some liquid glass to the apples. Apples are shiny right? Then I wanted to add some more "fall" to the card so I plastered the bottom with "Autumn" flowersoft!! Gosh I just love that stuff!! I found some really neat letters and put them on the bottom (those are from Joanns), layered with fall papers and added a ribbon from Making Memories. I didn't take a picture of the inside, however, I used another one of KLM's digi sentiments "Happy Harvest".

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work. I hope you enjoy it and it will inspire you to create something today. Remember to stop by Copic Buzz to get a free image to use for this challenge!! I can't wait to see what you creat!! If you would like even more inspiration, check out all of the design teams work!! Don't forget to visit KLM Designs for even more AWESOME images!!!

Happy Stampin'

Let's get Sassy

Sassy Design Studio's that is. They are the sponsors of this weeks challenge on the Copic Buzz blog. Our challenge this week was to use black and grey either in the coloring, the paper or the embellies. With this image I felt I had to go dramatic, she looks pretty serious after all. I started by cutting out a word and image from some halloween paper I have bought at my LSS and used it as a mask to airbrush grey to show off the "Wicked" and the spiderweb. Then I colored my image (at first I was going to go black and purple, but decided on the purple and green instead) with my Copic markers, took a plain white flower and added glue and some Martha Stewart Black Onyx glitter and added to that an orange dew drop. Then I sprayed the whole card front with spray adheasive and poured on the glitter, even an evil woman needs some bling. Something was just missing still, it took me a while to figure it out, but then I came across some more dew drops that were green and purple and decided that is what it needed.
This was one of those cards that just flowed!! It didn't take me very long to create this card, but I sure do love how it turned out. Now it is your turn. You can go over to the Copic Buzz blog and get a free image that is being provided for this challenge. Also, I recommend you go to Sassy Studios to see all of their stamps and you are going to fill up your cart when you get over there. This lady is super talented and has a great design team to go with it. We would love to see what you come up with.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I look forward to seeing what you create with these great images!!

Victoria Case Challenge card

Here is my entry for the Victoria Case challenge #16. It is a color challenge of Red, Orange & Brown and you needed to use a VC image. I purchased this image a while ago and have been wanting to play with it, so I decided there is no time like now!! I put flock on her ear muffs, jacket and boots and I used Polor White Flowersoft for the snow and added some glitter to it to give it some shine. The winner of this challenge will get a new stamp by Victoria Case (Moon Witch) which is completely awesome!!! And if that weren't enough, they get to be the next guest designer!!!

Thanks for looking at my entry, hope you enjoy and that you had a great weekend!!

My first award

My good friend Annita gave me this award. Thank you so much Annita!!! I truely appreciate your friendship.

Flourishes Stamps

Here is a card I made using Flourishes Stamps Gerbera Daisies. These are one of my favorite flowers and as soon as I saw this set, I just had to have it. I was lucky enough to win this set free by winning the Copic Buzz challenge!!
This card I made for a challenge that Flourishes Stamps is having on their blog to win the new fall release of their stamps. I have fallen in love with their stamps and will be a long time customer of theirs for sure!!
This card was made from the Flourishes sketch on thier blog and is just perfect for this stamp set. I used misc. cardstock and ribbon that I had in my stash, the "frill" is made from a Fiskars punch and I added a little bit of Crystal Stickles to the centers of the flowers for some bling!!
Thank you for taking time to visit my courner of the web. I hope you all have a great day!!!

PS: I decided to submit this card for publication to Cards Magazine. I don't know how long it takes to hear back if it was accepted or not.

Today I am posting a little bookmark that I made for my daughter. She had mentioned to me that she wanted one and thought I would whip one up for her. Can't hurt to encourage reading, right?
This bookmark was made with clear cardstock from PTI, PP by My Minds Eye, rubons by DCWV and misc. fibers. It was quick and easy to make with my Coluzzle Tags template that I got from CTMH.
I am sorry that I have been MIA lately, I have been working on baby shower invitations and also getting ready for my CTMH new catalog launch party this Saturday.
Thank you for stopping by and spending a little time in my corner of the world. Have a great day!!!

DZ Doodles Challenge

Hello everyone, how are you today? I am sorry that I have been gone for the last few days, but I have been spending some nice time with the family.

Over at our next challenge is to use any image from DZ Doodles. This is a new digi company and they have a ton of really great images!! Here is a link to their store so you can go purchase some really great images!

This card features a really cute snowman from DZ Doodles. I colored his scarf, hat and sign with my Copics and then to his mittens and his hat I added some flocking to add demention and also some fuzzies!! Then I airbrushed some flowers to add to the card with the 2 blue colors I used on the snowman. I am so beginning to LOVE the airbrush system!! The sparkely cardstock is from Me & My Big Ideas Specialty cardstock that I got last year after the holidays!! (Gotta love clearance paper that is beautiful)

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you here again soon. Please go look at all of the other great samples that the DT has provided for this challenge and don't forget to post your entry by next Monday night!! Good luck and have a great day!!
