8/29 New Challenge at Crafty Ho's

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic weekend! I know I am, especially because there is a new challenge up at Crafty Ho's Challenges! This weeks challenge is to use school supplies on your cards and/or projects! So dig out your pencils, paper clips, and notebook paper and get crafting! Then head to the 'Ho Corner' and link up your creations! :)

My oversized easel card below features a digital stamp from Digital Delights by Louby Lou. For my school supplies, I used chalk paint, staples, paper clips, and a glue stick. I hope you like my card and I can't wait to see all of your projects too!

8/29 New Challenge at OSAAT

This weeks challenge at One Stitch at a Time is being sponsored by the amazingly talented Kenny K! I am beyond delighted to get the opportunity to use one of Kenny's digi stamps as I'm a huge fan of his work! I hope you like the card I've created below. You can find Kenny K downloads available online at http://www.kennykdownloads.com/


The new OSAAT challenge is another fun one - Cute and girly! Easy Peasy doncha think!? I had a great time with it, and can't wait to see what you create too! Head over to the OSAAT Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's creations, read the challenge details and link up your own fabu projects and cards!


In this picture on the right you can see that I've done quite a bit of masking and decoupage on my card. Her hair is wavy & bouncy because I've defined it more by cutting & popping up sections! I masked the digital image & used a rubber stamp of a brick wall so she'd be perched atop it! I used plenty of copic shades in her clothes and hair, but I really thought she could use some more sparkle! So out came the Spica Pens, glitter, and bling!  They are a bit difficult to see in this picture on the right, but check out the picture below!
I decided to include this 2nd picture in my post to show how Sparkly and Glittery my card is! It is hard to take a good picture sometimes with all of that sparkle! However, I wanted you to see the effect of all of the blingy, glittery goodness that I added to my creation! Afterall...a girl can NEVER  have too much sparkle!

New Challenge at KAH-wink-E-dink!

Hi there everyone! I'm back this morning with a new card to tell you all about the new challenge up at KAH-wink-E-dink! The challenge theme this week is 'Birthday'

Everyone can always use more birthday cards, but don't forget small gifts and other projects can also be created around this theme too! So get out your stamps, make something awesome and then head over to the KWED blog to link up your projects! We can't wait to see what you've made!

My card below features two digis from KWED - Andrew is in the Army Now, and Golfer Girl. Because they are digital stamps, they were very easy to resize and combine with very little effort. This is very important for me to try and save time as I want to make several variations to create as many cards as possible.

Why? Well, this card is one of many handmade cards that are being donated to OWH to send out to be used for the brave men and women who are serving our country in the US Military. To see how you too can help Operation Write Home, please click on the link HERE. It is a small way to help the men and women who are serving our us to put a smile on the  faces of their loved ones too! Why not make a card to donate too?
