I am using the fun image called I (heart) U.. I colored the image with copics and then used my cloud template for the sky. I went over the I and U with Wink of Stella to give some glitter and then added some adhesive to the heart and sprinkled on some glitter.. It's has quite the sparkle.

Happy Holidays - Creative with Stamps Challenge

Tuesday January 15, 2019
 
It's mid month reminder time at Creative with Stamps..
The theme is Mittens..
Note: CWS Challenges do not have many "Guidelines", but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
 
 
This is my reminder card.. If you read about my January 1st. card you know I don't have a mitten stamp and so I drew a mitten and cut it out and traced it on Bristol paper and turned it over to create the other hand. I used Zig markes and painted the mittens. I used Simon Says stamps and embossing powder and created the fun texture to the mittens. I stamped the SS sentiment on We R memory keepers scrap and used Stampin up die. I then added this to a piece of scrap paper. I don't know who the background is by. I then used a copic and colored the twine and added this to the mittens.. I don't know about you but when I was growing up this is the way our mittens were. You would put your mittens on and then your winter coat and even if you took your mittens off they were saved by the cord that connected it to the other one.. I know my mom would add a safety pin inside my coat in the collar area and ran the cord through the pin so the mittens wouldn't be lost if I took my coat off.. The pin held them there even though they would have to go all the way through the coat sleeve.. I guess extra care that they wouldn't be lost.    I don't think they do that now.. but honestly don't know..

I chose a scrap of Quick quote paper. I thought the stripes were nice and colorful. I then colored the image with copics using some of the colors from the paper. I used Tim Holtz tag die and stamped the My pink stamper sentiment. I love this colorful ribbon so tied a bow and added the tag. I used My favorite things sentiment it's your birthday.

Happy birthday - Creations in Pink

Tuesday January 15, 2019
 
Welcome to another challenge at Creations in Pink..
 We have a new challenge..
The theme is ANYTHING GOES..
 JUST MAKE SURE THERE'S LOTS OF PINK
 


Since we don't have a sponsor this month.. I decided to use some fun images from Pretty Pink Posh.. I started with a pink piece of designer paper and I liked that it had the water color look so I took a Simon says all over stamp and white heat embossed the design. It reminds me of a trellis. I then used Stampin up designer paper and stamped the hummingbirds. I used a few copic colors to give a little more color. There are pink lines in the paper. I used Taylored expressions leaf die and punched some SU flowers. I added some SU sequins to the center.. The sentiment is from My favorite things..

Monster bash Day 3 birthday - Catch the bug

Monday January 14, 2019
 
Welcome to Day 3 of our week long 9th Birthday party at
Our theme this year is Monster Bash
Each day we have a new theme..
 
 
 
Our theme for today is Anything But a Card.. Try a party favor...
I went for the party favor only because my hubby hadn't eaten his pineapple fritter yet so I had the perfect base for the favor.. I used the image called Bubble present from Bugaboo.. I colored the image with copics. I added a little Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  I then cut the image out with My favorite things circle. I found a scrap of purple so using Spellbinder scallop die cut this out. I had a skewer so cut it down and added it to the top of the purple piece. I added the Simon says happy birthday. I added foam dots behind the image and added this to the scallop circle/skewer and sentiment and my party favor was done.
