Dueling Darlings

Well it is the 15th of the month which means we reveal our creations that we made with a challenge from Paola and Heather.  The image is "Spring Chick" by Cornish Heritage Farms and was stamped on Staples 110 lb cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I colored the image with my copic markers and then fussy cut the image out.  I also used some glossy accents on the balloon.  The white clouds are a die from Memory box.  The designer paper is from Costco.  I used some of the green paper and used a "Your Next Stamp" grass die.  I then used a flower punch and added flowers at the bottom.  The blue clouds at the top are "Taylored Expressions Build a Scene Rolling Clouds" die.  So my using a few of my dies, I made this adorable scene card for your challenge.

Pammie Inky Pinky Challenge #1819

Another beautiful Monday  and welcome to Pammies Inky Pinkies (PIP) Challenge 1819, an Anything Goes challenge sponsored this week by Digital Delights.  

Thanks so much to Digital Delights for sponsoring us this week.  I hope you check out their website because they have some adorable images.  For my card today I chose "Bird Bath Bobby"  because it is spring and I love seeing all the birds and hearing them sing their songs.
I started by sizing the image to what I think would work and printed it on my printer at home.  I know some people say that their printers are not copic friendly but I have an inexpensive Canon MP250 that I purchased years ago and it works great with my copics.

I then colored my image using my copic markers an then used a Stampin Up stitched oval die.  The sentiment is from an Art-C stamp set.  The designer paper is Doodlebug Design "Anchors aweigh".

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the other creations from the Design Team at Pammie's Inky Pinky Challenges.

Crafters of Faith

Today is reveal day for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers.  Kelly was our hostess this month and she chose Proverbs 16:24 as our scripture challenge this month.  "Kind words are like honey - sweet to the soul and healthy for the body".
I decided to go with "Kindness" as my theme.  I first used the MFT window die and cut out  a square in the center of the card.  I then pulled out my Two Paper Divas "Fern" stamp and colored the image with my copic markers.  I then fussy cut the fern and butterfly out and adhered to my card.  The sentiment is also from Two Paper Divas.  I am sad that Two Paper Divas is no longer in business.  I loved their stamps.

Thanks to Kelly for a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #1817

Today is Challenge #1817 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges and it is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  Bugaboo Stamps is one of my favorite digital stamps companies because their stamps have such personality.  You can't help but love them.

This month we have a theme going and it is Rainy Days.  When I chose my image to use I didn't put much thought in to how I would incorporate the theme.  I used the stamp "Block Sentiments - if Friends were Flowers" for my card.  
I colored the image with my copic markers and for the background I chose to do a sponging technique with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides.  I then took a rain drop die and placed the cut out paper over my distress oxide sheet and applied water.  So it looks just like a rain drop background.  I added a yellow ribbon at the bottom to bring in more of the yellow color.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your creations over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges with your Rainy Day theme.

Challenge Your Stash

Today is reveal day for our "Challenge Your Stash" group on Splitcoaststampers.  Sue was the host this month and her challenge was April Showers bring May flowers and we were to use flowers and/or showers.  I decided to incorporate both in to my card.
For my card I used Newton's Nook Rainy Day stamp.  I first started with a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock.  I used the MFT cloud stencil and sponged with Distress Ink Broken China on the top 2/3 of the card.  I then stamped my image leaving room for the grass.  I also stamped the image on a piece of pink designer paper and fussy cut it out. I stamped the flowers which are from Lawn Fawn "Blissful Botanicals" and colored them all with my copic markers.  The sun is a Lil Inker die and the cloud is a Memory Box stitched cloud die.  I just love this card.

Thanks to Sue for a great challenge.

Unidentified Image Round #37

Today I get to post a card I made for our Unidentified Image Round #37.  Vickie was our hostess this month and she came up with an adorable image.
This adorable image is from a retired Stampin Up set called "Fairies".  I really wish Stampin Up would bring back some of their retired sets because they are just so adorable.  I colored the image with my copic markers.  I even added a little sparkle on the wings with my Nuvo glitter pen although it doesn't show up well in my photo.

Thanks Vickie for a great challenge.

Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #1815

This week our challenge is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.  Be sure and stop by their store and see some of their adorable images.  For my challenge this week at Pammie's Inky Pinkies, I decided to use the image Strawberry Mouse.  Since it is almost strawberry season I thought this would be the perfect image.
I printed off the image on my Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock and then colored it with my copic markers.  I then used an oval stitched die to cut it out.  I found this adorable paper by Maja Designs called Life in the Country.  I thought the strawberries in the back would be the perfect accent to the card.  I typed up the sentiment on my computer and used a small oval punch and then a red scalloped oval punch for outlining the sentiment.

I hope to see you over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and that you submit a creation because a lucky winner will win a $15 gift card to Gerda Steiner Designs.

I have decided to enter my card in the Gerda Steiner Challenge.
