Welcome back to another fun challenge at
our theme is BACK TO SCHOOL
 
 
During the coffee lovers spring blog hop I won a gift cert. from any company I wanted.. Well living in Washington state I like to keep it local and Pretty Pink Posh is local.. So I spent my gift card and then some.. LOL.. How could you not.. This is one of the sets I ordered. I love these cute little kids and I think they can be used for more than school.  I started by finding some Basic Gray designer papers and cut them to fit my card. I then stamped the images and colored them with copics. as I was laying them out it looked a little plain so using Tech. Tues picture frame I die cut this out. I found some dark gray cardstock (for the chalk board) so stamped the PPP sentiment and embossed in white (to look like chalk) and added this to the top area. I added a sequin so it looked like a nail head. I also did the same with the back pack so it looks like it's hanging on the wall.  I am loving this cute card. oh look at the boys glasses.. how cute are those..  Cant wait to see what you come up with for your Back to school card.

Moose you big time -


Saturday August 25, 2018

This little guy was speaking to me.. really.. I was looking through my stamps and this one kept coming up so I thought ok I hear ya.. I will play with you today.. So here is the card I created.
 
This is a Sugar Pea moose. I love the cute moose in the set and chose this one to create my card. I started by cutting a negative circle and taping it down to my Bristol card stock. I used a few different Oxide inks to create the yellow/orangish circle. I dropped water on it to give the texture look. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and colored the image with copics and die cut the cutie out and added him on the sentiment banner. I used EK heart punch and Amy Tangerine scrap and punched out three hearts. I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.

Welcome back to another fun challenge at

Remember you need to color your project. No pre colored images.

This is the fun image called Basketball little dude.. He is so cute. I started with fussy cutting the image out so I knew how much of the card front he would take up. I then found some fun masculine looking designer papers. I colored the little dudes levis with copics  in a blue jean color and using Copic -0 colorless blender I poured some of the liquid on a scrap piece of levi material then I laid it on the little boys pants. When I remove it .. it looks like he has levis on..   cool huh.. I finished coloring the rest of the image with copics. I added some white gel pen to his cheeks. I added him to the card front with foam tape. I used Stampin up stitch circle die and then used Quick Quote chalk ink to distress the edge. I also added this with foam tape. I added some bling dots from Close to my heart.

Soak up the sun - Craftaholics R Us #34

Wednesday August 22, 2018
 
Welcome back for another week challenge at Craftaholics R Us #34 and the Green team has a fun challenge for you..
The theme is PARADISE...
Can't wait to see what PARADISE means to you.
 
 
To me paradise is water and hot weather.. I decided to make an island but it could be the Pacific ocean off our state of Washington or a lake/river/pond.. I love water. it's so calming and love looking at it. We are so blessed to have the Pacific ocean close by. Our property is along a river.. you cant see it unless you walk to the back of our property.. Anyhow I used my Mission paints and created the kidney bean island surrounded by ocean. I used Lawn Fawn palm tree and crab dies. I used My Favorite Things birds and greenery.  I also colored them with Mission paints. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. I used a white gel pen to give white caps an beach foam and highlights on the trees I used a brown gelly pen for the tree ground area and coconut mark.
Where is your paradise?

I'm singing your praises - Always Fun Challenges #72

Monday August 20, 2018
 
Hello and welcome back to another fun challenge at
Our theme is TAGS
 
 A few weeks back I was making a tag and using Dylusion sprays and so I thought why not spray a few more.. After all I had all of the sprays out, tags and lots of paper towels. It can be messy..
So this is the other piece I did.  I used some painters tape and then sprayed then removed the tape and sprayed some more.. So that is how I got the different areas. I used some thin washi tape to divide the areas for this tag. I had some of these fun images from My favorite things that I painted with my Mission paints months ago.. many months ago.. I thought they worked out good for the tag and went with the colors. I chose this fun sentiment also from MFT and heat embossed it. I added a brad to the hole area and then some acrylic dots from Quick Quote.

Welcome to another fun challenge at Aud Sentiments #210
Our theme for these two weeks is
ANYTHING GOES + SENTIMENT
 

Since we don't have a sponsor this challenge.. I got to use my Simon Says monthly card kit. It's always fun receiving the kit and playing with the goodies. This card I just used one of the flower stamps (there were quite a few) and one of the sentiments.. again quite a few.
I started first by using the Stampin up cross hatch and Ranger ink. Stamped a small white panel. I then stamped the image and sentiment an colored the image with copics. I finished the card by adding it to a piece of Club scrap designer paper. I added a few half pearls and went over the jar with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.

Happy Birthday - Sunny Day Crafting

Wednesday August 15, 2018
 
We're back with a new challenge at
Sunny Day Crafting and our theme is
ANIMALS... ANY ANIMAL
 
 
Todays card I used a small hedgehog and stump from Sugar Peas.. The larger porcupine/hedgehog is from Your next stamp. I first started by using a balloon stencil that I created by die cutting a bunch of balloon dies on x-ray film. I used Simon Says inks to create the colors. I added strings to some of the balloons. I think next time I will add the strings as I go along so that they are not so out in your face. When I was done I had a big ink smudges on the lower white area (I'm left handed so I hold the stencil down with my right hand and the ink transferred from the stencil).. I tried to erase them but they just wouldn't go so I used Reverse Confetti die and cut the bottom off. I am really glad that happened cause I like the look it gives.. I colored the images with copics and added some grass to ground the image. I stamped the Happy birthday which is by Concord and 9th.
