time to celebrate - Crafty Sentiments

Tuesday September 29, 2020

Hello.. 
It's time for another challenge over at 

Our theme this week is ANYTHING GOES



I am using this darling little image called Isobel strawberry cupcake.. I colored her with copics. I used a Simon says die to cut her out. I layered her on some dark gray card stock. I had this die cut frame from Lil inker on my desk so used it to frame the image. I took a Hero arts happy birthday and Stampin up ink and repeat stamped the sentiment. I then used a Reverse Confetti and the same Stampin up ink and stamped the time to celebrate.  I went over her bow with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.

Challenges:
As you like it - bright or pastel favorite (mostly bright as it seems to make the card more cheerful- but to even it out and not so powerful add a little pastel)
Creative fingers #193 - anything goes
Polkadoodles wk. 39 - anything goes
A gem of a craft wk. 20 - anything goes
Dragonfly journey #139 - encouragement/celebration

Just because - Make My Monday #132

Monday September 28, 2020

Hello again.. I have a card to share for the new challenge over at 

Our theme this challenge is 
USE UP YOUR SCRAPS



So in a way I wish I could of used up my scraps.. BUT I hardly put a dent in it for this card.. LOL.  I really need to figure how to use up my scraps. Every card I use some of my scraps in one way or another.. Well this card I made one similar to it earlier this month and loved the look so I went that route with this card. I found some nice scraps. I cut different widths and then laid them out on a piece of paper. I had this frame on my desk and not sure what it was from but thought that is what I would use to frame my scraps.. I used more scraps and die cut the Taylored Expressions silhouette image. I adhered the blue one right to the scrap background and the blackish one I used foam dots behind the flower parts.. I stamped the Tech. Tuesday sentiment with Stampin up Not quite Navy ink. I added this to the stems and added to a white card base..  

Challenges:
Try it on Tuesday - use scraps
Creative fingers #193 - anything goes
Polkadoodles wk. 39 - anything goes
Sweet stampin - autumn
Crafting happiness #68 - anything goes

Monday September 28, 2020

Hard to believe that end of September is just around the corner.. Time flies.

We have a new challenge over at

Our theme this challenge is DIE CUTTING

I took some white card stock and Spellbinder scallop square and die cut quite a few pieces. I wanted to go for the autumn but in a pastel way.  I took Ranger ink and added colors I thought worked well together. I used various Simon Says stamps and heat embossed the foliage. I then used foam dots and added the squares. I die cut the Stampin up butterfly in black and a golden yellow and stacked them and added to the card. I heat embossed a SS sentiment and finished with some Pretty Pink Posh jewels. I love how it came out but oh my it took a long time to make.

Simon Wednesday - animal antics
As you like it - bright or pastel favorite ( mostly bright but love the added softness of pastel to give more interest)
