Time for Fall

Hey all, how are you this fine Friday.

Today I have a new card for you in  honor of the new challenge over at Meljen's Designs. The challenge is based on an inspiration photo. 

Here is what I came up with. 

I was inspired by the colors and the swirls. I had some great rust orange Core'Dinations cardstock scraps that I was  able to use up with this card. I pared that with some embossed white cardstock  that I inked with a sage green. The Meljen's sentiment image is a great one so I knew that it should be the focus, that is why I didn't do much to  it except color in a few details. I topped it off with some inked leaves and a button. Super simple but I love it. 

Thanks for stopping  by and have a great weekend.

Eye of Newt

OMG I can't beleive I haven't posted in so long. I have been crafting but I have not had much extra time for posting, LOL. I hope you all can forgive me.

Today I have a new card for you in  honor of the new challenge over at Meljen's Designs. The challenge is "Tear it up" so that is just what I did. Last year I won this amazing Fancy Pants Designs Halloween prize pack and it came with the coolest papers. I knew I had to use them here. For the image I used "Jar of Eyeballs" which is so fun yet creepy all at the same time. I ripped the middle paper strip and inked the edges of all the papers to give it a great old distressed feel. I love it, maybe that is because these papers and the image are AWESOME.

Hey everyone. I am so sorry that I haven't been shoring. I have been creating but between family, work, and DT and challenge blog stuff I have been swamped.

Well enough with the excuses and let's get to my newest creation. My dear friends over at Designed to Color are having a new monthly challenge. It is a sketch by Lizzie. I have not created for myself for a while so I thought I should give this a go. What do you think?

Thinking of You

Hey everyone I wanted to share with you my newest card for Card Makin Mamas. The challenge that  is concluding this week was all about  Rubber Stamps. It seems like since the invention of  digi images, rubber has kinda gotten thrown to the  side and so we wanted to dig out our  red and clear cling stamps to see what inspired us to start stamping in the first place.

My card is using a rubber stamp from a Unity Stamps Kit of the Month (I'm sorry I can't remember which one). I was  looking at the kit and just fell in love with this butterfly frame. I used a great double sided Stella Rose paper by My Mind's Eye that I thought complimented well. I flipped this ugly printed ribbon over so that you couldn't see the design and then inked a doily from Creating for Fun to match the card. Lastly I added the rub on sentiment.

GDT Post

Hey everyone, it is the 3rd of July. Where did this year go?

Today I am happy to share that I am a Guest Designer today at Tuesday Morning Sketches. They are being sponsored by Meljen's Designs and I got to be the lucky one representing us Meljen girls.

They have a fabby sketch for you this  week.

Ok I won't lie, this sketch was a toughy for me. I knew exactly what I wanted to do but it took my 4 tries to get it right. I have had this awesome Imaginisce paper since the CKC in March and I have not been able to use it, until now. I love how it works with the super cute Little Lighthouse image. I topped it off with some striped ribbon and viola.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along.

Getting Sketchy

OMG I can't believe that I haven't blogged in a month. I feel so ashamed. I  have been creating still for Meljen's Designs as  well as running Card Makin Mamas but apparently I have neglected to share any of my work with you fine folks. Well that will change NOW, because I have a super fun new card to share with you today.

I have had this amazing image for a while now, it was a freebie called Boobielove from Saturated Canary. I have actually had her colored up for a while now but never knew what to do with her. Well thankfully my dear friend Carisa was my secret swap sister recently and she sent me this awesome Amy Tangerine stuff that got me so inspired. I have also been dying to use this design paper from Fancy Pants Designs. When Carisa's magazine Designed to Color posted their new sketch challenge I noticed that it would all work together perfectly. All the stickers are from Amy Tangerine and then I added some pink Washi tape that I also got in my swap package. Now I will admit that I don't have a vast selection of Copics to use when coloring an image so I blend them with my Bic markers and that  is what I did  here with  this image. I am so pleased with the way it turned out too.
