Tag It!

 The Stinkin' Inkers challenge for this month is all about tags. You may create a tag to put on a package or create a tag to add to your card or other project.

I decided to create a single tag for my inspiration project using one of Julie Nuttings Prima paper dolls.
The image was stamped onto white card stock, colored with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut. Next I stamped the image onto a piece of red and white printed designer paper and fussy cut the dress to add to the image. This was then added to the tag with pop dots. The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto the tag. Last I added the pink and white paper flowers, butterfly and red/black fibers.

I hope you will join us in this fun challenge. Stop by Stinkin' Inkers and check out the other inspiration projects by my design team and then enter your creations.

Wishing you a blessed day.

In the Red

Hello everyone! Today it is my turn to host the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge. Unfortunately, my husband broke his kneecap into 3 pieces so I have been spending a lot of time between the hospital, Community Care and home. The good news is that after a month, he will finally be coming home tomorrow. He still has a lot of therapy ahead of him, but at least he will be home.

I want to thank Darlene for writing the post for the challenge this month. She stepped in helped to get me caught up.

Now for my project.
The image is from Lemon Shortbread and is called "Christmas Package". I thought it would make a nice birthday card for winter.  Doesn't she look cute all dressed up in her warm coat and hat? The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils, the green designer paper is by DCWV and the Flower designer paper is from a Recollections paper pad. The paper flowers were purchased at Michaels. I used Memories Black ink to stamp the sentiment punched it out with my Fancy Label punch.

I hope you will hop over to the Sisterhood and check out the inspiration projects by other team members and then enter for your chance to be our next Winner.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Since Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away, I chose this sweet image of this sweet couple celebrating their love. The image is called Cody and Manda Love and can be found here.

After coloring the image with Prismacolor pencils, I added a mat of light lavender and adhered it to the front of the card. Next I stamped the sentiment with Fun Stamper Journey "Grape Fusion" ink onto a strip of white card stock and added a mat of light lavender. The edges of this panel were run across the purple ink pad for contrast. Last I added the violet purple satin ribbon tied in a knot.

Snow Much Fun

The snow has finally decided to fall here in Northeast Ohio. From around 10 am yesterday morning until sometime early this morning we received 8-10 inches of snow with a temperature of 18 degrees and a windchill of minus 1. Time to get out those snow shovels and tunnel our way out.

For my inspiration project at LeAnn's World 101, I chose this sweet image of Holly and her snowman that you can find here.
The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and adhered to a black mat. A piece of Anna Griffin foiled card designer card stock was layered onto a white card stock base and then the image panel was added. The sentiment was stamped with Momento black ink onto a strip of white card stock and mounted onto a strip of black card stock. Pop dots were used to give the sentiment panel some dimension.

There is still time to enter the challenge at LeAnn's World 101. Stop by and check out the inspiration projects. You could be our next winner.

Vintage Skaters

Hello everyone! The Sisterhood of Crafters begins a new year of challenges today and the theme is "Make It Sparkle." 

I found this beautiful picture of vintage skaters on Pinterest to use as my focus.
I started with a base card of light blue. I printed the image twice. Using a clear glue, I added diamond dust to the pond for sparkling ice. (The diamond dust doesn't show up very well in the photo, but in person it is beautiful. Makes it look like shimmering ice.)Next I fussy cut around the couple and used pop dots to add to the image panel. Red line tape was used to add lace around the black mat as a frame and the image panel was glued to the mat. Red line tape was used to adhere the mat to the card front.

If you would like to take part in a fun challenge, head on over to the Sisterhood, check out the sistah's inspiration projects and enter your creation. Limit of 3 entries per person.

Hope to see you there.

Winter Drive

Brrrr! Well, winter has arrived here in Northeast Ohio.  In the hopes of a white Christmas, I decided to create a card that gives the feeling of a beautiful winter day for the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge beginning today. Our hostess for this challenge is Vickie and her theme is:
"Create a Winter Scene"
The image for my card is from a set of digi stamps given to the members of Richard Garay's Facebook group RG Studio360.

The base card is Navy Blue card stock. The background paper is from a DCWV Christmas pad. After printing out the two trucks, I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut around them. Two pieces of white card stock were torn to make the hills of snow. The trucks were adhered with pop dots to add dimension. I used a Fiskars small punch to create the snowflakes and added clear gems to the center. The sentiment panel was included with the truck digi stamps.

Be sure to stop by the Sisterhood to check out the design team's beautiful inspiration projects and join in the fun.

Happy Holidays!

Matt & Molly Rockin'

Hello everyone! The new challenge begins today at Leann's World 101. I am definitely in the Christmas mood and wanted to express the fun and excitement around this time of year.

I chose this sweet image of Matt and Molly dancing for my focus. Looks like they are having a great time and makes me want to party.
The base card is white card stock and the designer paper is from a pack of Stampin' Up paper I had purchased quite a few years ago. This was one of my favorite packs of paper and thankfully I had enough left to create this card. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencil and after threading the green satin ribbon through the button holes, I tied them in bows and ahered them with a heavy glue.

I would love for you to join our challenge at Leann's World 101. Why not stop by and check out the design team's inspiration projects and enter for your chance to win.

Leann is also having a 12 Days of Christmas Event on her Facebook Group page. Check it out if you have a chance.

Until next time...

Lavender Bouquet

The Sisterhood of Crafters begins a new challenge today with Debbie as our hostess. The theme for this challenge is:
"Stitched Dies"
When I found a pack of 3D decoupage flowers, I knew they would be perfect for this challenge.
The base of the card is a piece of Recollections lavender card stock. Next I added this beautiful piece of lace, then the oval stitched die panel. Then I began layering the 3D flower pieces and added white pearls to the corners. I did not add a sentiment because I am not sure how I will use this card. It would make a beautiful Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Get Well or Encouragement card.

If you would like to take part in this challenge, just head on over to the Sisterhood, check out the other team members inspiration projects and enter your own creation.

Have a wonderful day!

Angel Music

Today at LeAnn's World 101, I shared a project for my inspiration post using the image "Musica" found here.

I started with a base of white card stock and added a panel of Christmas Reindeer designer paper. Next I cut a 2 1/2" square, cut it in half diagonally and added a piece to the top left and bottom right corners. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used a gold glitter gel pen for the harp. Using my Cuttlebug, I cut the mat and the image panel with cross stitched rectangle dies. The image was adhered to the mat with pop dots to add dimension. The sentiment was stamped with India ink onto a strip of white card stock and adhered to a strip of the Reindeer paper. The sentiment strip was also adhered to the bottom right hand corner with pop dots. The gold metallic ribbon was added to coordinate with the gold on the harp.

I hope you will stop by LeAnn's World 101 and join in on the fun. This is a month-long, "Anything Goes" challenge. The design team has created some gorgeous projects for your inspiration.

Darlene is the hostess of the next challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters and the theme is:
"Mood Board"
Create a card or project using the photos below as your inspiration.
 

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and so I chose this beautiful photo found on Pinterest to create my Thanksgiving card.

The base card is medium brown card stock, then I created a mat with Pumkin card stock.The leaf stems were created using a Sizzix die. The leaf stem is actually bigger than the pieces on the card, but I cut a few leaves off each stem so it would fit better. Then I added the pearls for dimension. I love the verse. It reminds me to always be thankful for God's blessings.

Why not stop by the Sisterhood and see the inspiration projects the team has to share and then enter your creations? 

Hope to see you there.
Happy Thanksgiving!

The image was colored with Spectrum Noire pencils and fussy cut, then adhered with pop dots for dimension. The sentiment was stamped with black India ink onto a piece of white card stock and punched out with SU's 1 1/4" circle punch and adhered to a scalloped circle of Rose cardstock, with pop dots.

Time to Laugh

The theme for the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters, hosted by Darlene is:
"Humor"
Created a card or project that shows us what you find funny.
The stamp I used on my project has been in my stash for quite some time. I was having a hard time finding a sentiment to go with it when I remembered I had purchased a couple of funny sentiment stamps a couple of years ago.
 (front)
 
(inside)
The card base was created using white card stock and adding the striped paper by DCWV. SU's scalloped punch was used to create the black mats and SU's circle punch was used to create the gray panel for the sentiment and face stamps. Wiggle eyes were adhered with clear glue. The inside sentiment was stamped onto a white strip and adhered to a black strip. Pop dots were used to add dimension to the inside sentiment panel. Last I added 3 white pearls to the upper right hand corner. 

The design team would love to see your humorous projects, so why not head on over to the Sisterhood and enter the challenge? 

Happy Crafting!

Wanderer

For new challenge at Crafting With An Attitude, I wanted to do a fall scene. My husband and I love to hike in the wood's when time permits so for the focus of my card I chose this image from Sheepski Designs called Wanderer.
Starting with a white card stock base, I then added the beautiful forest image found on Pinterest. After coloring the digi of the Wanderer and squirrel with prismacolor pencils, I fussy cut around them and adhered with pop dots for dimension. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card stock and adhered with a glue runner. Last a I added the flowers that have been in my stash forever and added an ivory pearl for the center.

I did not add a sentiment inside, because I'm not sure if I will use this card for a retirement or birthday card. It would work well for either.

The challenge at Crafting With An Attitude ends on October 28th, so you still have time to enter. My team has some beautiful inspiration projects to share with you.
