Ink it up challenge!

Let's Ink It Up Challenge #11 is to you your punches or die cuts! I had to get this great new rubber stamp from Hero Arts (RAK from one of my dear friends Clare!!) Some vintagey goodness...



The rubber stamps I used are the birdcage from Hero Arts, and the sentiment and frame! I actually tried a technique I saw somewhere where you stamp the BACK of the stamp with a lighter colors, then stamp the image normally with a darker color! I think it worked pretty good for my sentiment label! And my punch is the MS butterflies! Love this punchy SO MUCH!!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Oh Baby!

I ventured off my normal card path and made a cutesy baby card for a couple challenges! I am totally getting into combining, it makes it very interesting to add all the different elements together!!

So this card is for the following challenges!

Moxie Trigger and APC Cuppy Cakes!

The Moxie Trigger is adorable this week! I LOVE cupcakes (baking is my second passion) and these polka dot cupcake wrappers stole my heart!




I wanted to to make something a little different, well I usually do lol so I decided to make cupcake hot air balloons! This trend is still so hot right now! I also used fair tickets but turned them over to make a cool border! I used the bottom of a cupcake stamp for my "basket" and I drew the tops! I think they came out pretty cute!



This card is also for the APC Forum Cuppy Cakes challenge! Jilly just posted a fun new challenge that will get you "sew" in the mood to craft!! ;oP

Totally Hues and Unscripted Sketches!

I was searching around for a few fresh challenges to do today and I found the Totally Hues #4 color combo challenge and the Unscripted Sketches #98 sketch. The sketch was a toughy for me until I looked at the DT samples and got some ideas for it! And the color hues, they are AMAZING!! I did try to make them work together but I just wasn't happy with the way it came out so I ended up with making 2 different cards! Still not thrilled with the sketch, but I love how the color hues card came out!!






Thanks for some great challenges guys! I am super loving these color combos too! Hope everyone is had a good weekend and has a great week!

CAS and Color Hues!!

I have a quite a bit to share today! I went a little Taz on my crafting last night and got a whole bunch of challenges done that I have been wanting to play along with! To start us of is the Clean and Simple Sketch! I love this sketch and I have another idea for it but this is the first one!


And now for the Color Hues Challenge LOVEEEEE this color combo and I was lucky enough to have all this yummy SU! and TAC stuff in the perfect colors!! AND I used my favorite ribbon treatment that I saw on a youtube video!



I have a few more cards that I am debating on mailing into the Stamping Royalty Contest or not...if and when I decide I will post them!

Another post and another Moxie challenge!

This time it's the Tuesday Trigger! I was so excited when I saw the trigger photo and knew almost immediately what I wanted to do! So i got to work and wha-la! The only boo boo I made was I turned the paper on the bottom half of the card in the wrong direction!! I really would have liked the words to be running the correct way but by the time I noticed I had already glued down all the buttons!! It's not terrible so it will do lol!!





Hope you likey!!

Moxie Fab Cityscapes...but different

I had to get creative for the Cityscapes Challenge at the Moxie Fab Blog. I have nothing that is cityscapes form...no stamps, no papers...well, I just got this awesome stamp set in the mail from Miss Tracey and I thought why not make make the city scape out of cakes!! They are all different heights and layered in different colors it very much resembles a cityscape! So there you have it! And here is my sweet-scape!




And well since this in not a true cityscape, I'm hoping it counts towards the challenge, but if not well it was a wicked fun card to make anyways!!

Some SOGGY love!

It has been AGES since I played along with the Some Odd Girl Challenges! I LOVE Kristy's images, they are totally funky and fab-u-lous! Well, my darling hubby bought me a printer a couple of weeks ago and now I can finally print out all these digi's I have been hoarding for months!! Here is my first card with for the SOG challenge Spring!





(if you saw this already and it looks different it's because I HATED the sentiment and how it turned out so I changed it too this cute label sticker!)

I am by NO means a decent Copic artist lol....and I have to admit this is probably the best I have ever done with my limited supply of Copics! I did try a little technique I thought of that would make for a very cool effect on her shirt and that was to just do DOTS! If you click on the pic you can probably see it closer..but I just polka dotted her shirt with a pink and orange Copic and left a little white through...now i am addicted and need to try this with other colors!! I think it looks awesome!

This is also for the Artist Paper Crafting forum Crop challenge#1!!! If you have not made it over there yet...you REALLY need to!! They are running a week long crop right now and you have till midnight Friday to get in all your projects!! Great challenges and AWESOME prizes!!! So please, for me, get over there and check it out!! We need more fun ladies to fill up the forum with chatter and inspirational goodness!!

I could probably do ten blog posts today but I figured combine them..makes it easier!! So first up is the Moxie Fab Stamp It! Stamping with Markers Challenge! I was not planning on doing this challenge because well, I don't really color...my Copic collection is slowly growing...and when I say slowly, I mean I have not added to it since last year! But I just got this adorable stamp set from SU!! Birthday Bakery (I tried to find a link to it but I couldn't find it!! EEP!) Anywho...I stamped, I colored with a whimsical approach kinda like Mariana Grigsby and her Floatie Fun Card! I loved the look...and here is what I did with it!





Cute right? I love these bright happy colors together and this card is a great mix of SU! and Ippity!

On to the second challenge...Design Dollie's Color Challenge for march is up and it is hot!! Pink Pink Pink with a splash of yellow! At first I was like oh gosh what to do?? Then it just HIT me! And this little bit of fancy was born!



Love this MS butterfly punch! Gifty from my scrappy bff Maureen!!
