I made my box using the recipe challenges from Paper Sundaes (brown, pink, lace, and flowers) and The Pink Elephant (polka dots, a bow, and pink.) I also have some die cut hearts on my box- Secret Crafter Saturday has set a heart theme challenge.

Next is a card that I made for Card Patterns. Stamp Something wants to see "funny" somethings and Digital Tuesday is challenging us to make funny masculine birthday cards. This image from KLM Digital Designs was perfect for both. I came up with the sentiment myself!

Tools: Nestabilities, Copics
Accent: Button (Making Memories)

I made my card based on the Inspirational Card Sketches #51. I used BG Wisteria Papers and Bazzill cardstock. The image is from Digital Pencil and I colored it with my copics. Sorry for the short post- it's way past bedtime.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. I sanded and inked the edges of the two patterned paper layers for a little distressed look. Thanks for looking and register for the candy HERE if you like.
Stamps: Whiff of Joy, Studio G sentiment
Tools: Nestabilites; EKSuccess oval punch, Ranger Antique linen distressing ink

This is for the Digital Tuesday sketch, Charisma Cardz- use fruity colors/fruit images, and Simon Says - use punches. I used my MS zig zag border punch.
I colored Sammy with Prismacolor pencils. The coral color panel was embossed with my Sizzix Texture Boutique machine.
Thanks for looking. I'll be back later to add my DSO design team blinkie and a list of the other team members to my sidebar. For now, please visit the DSO blog My Creative Moments to meet the other team members and pay them a visit!

Cupcakes..Greeting card by SouthernScraps

Stamp: Digi stamp- Sketching stamper
Paper: BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses
Tools: Sizzix snowflakes die, nestabilities large rectangle and scalloped rectangle, Copics
Accents: Rhinestones, stickles
I'm sharing my set of cards that I made with the crazy 4 challenges sketch. I had to make a slight tweak to it as I thought it looked better not to have my sentiment overlap my image. I made the cards and a belly band for them for the StampTV Anything but a card challenge. I went with a set of those sentiments you often need at the last minute and don't have time to make up- sympathy, get well, thanks, and a thinking of you. Here they are:
Stamps: A Year of Flowers GKD; MFT sentiments; SeeD's (Get well sentiment)
Paper: K&Co. Amy Butlery
Tools: Nestabilities Large Rectangle; Ribbon tags trio; scallop punches; lace doily punch (Martha Stewart)

I also used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. For the Charisma Cardz challenge to use anything new, I've used my new label trio die.
Stamp: Starving Artist; sentiment- SeeD's
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, PXS
Tools: Nestabilities label trio die, prismacolor pencils
Accents: Button, ribbon, flower, corsage pin
Do you want this sunflower stamp? It has only been used this once and I've decided that it won't get much more use so I'm adding it to my blog candy. Please go here to enter.

I embossed the two cardstock panels with a Cuttlebug folder in my Big Shot. I also swiped some ink across the embossing on the blue panel for a little distressing. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils. Here is the card.
Stamp: Mo's Digital Pencil
Paper: K&Co., Bazzill cardstock
Tools: Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder
Do you want to win a package bursting with new release stamps? Of course you do :-) Help them spread the news about the blog hop and release on Wednesday 20th January.
See my previous post for a High Hopes image! I love to color these!
I've colored this image with Prismacolor pencils, desparately trying to apply what I've learned. I actually do thing this is my best colored pencil job yet. This card is made for the High Hopes challenge- use a bow, The Pink Elephant Birthday theme challenge, Creative Inspirations use something new (my new item is the label trio die) and for Aly's Sketch challenge. I had to tweak the sketch a little but I started with it for my inspiration.

Stamp: Whiff of Joy Melinda Hugging Heart; sentiment- Verve

Tools: Nestabilities; EKSucess punch; copics
Accents: Ribbon; button, brads
Here's another quick share. I found another Challenge blog- Just Us Girls. They are calling for stitching. I love this technique but haven't done it in quite a while so I added some faux stitching to this card. Coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils on this one.
Saturday, January 9, 2010
This was done in pink, brown, and cream for the Charisma Cardz challenge and Simon Says. I used Taylored Expressions Sketch #97 and the recipe from The Pink Elephant.
Stamps: Image- digi Cappucino Pippin from Digital Delights; Sentiment- TCP
Paper: Making Memories
Tools: Copics- E40, C10, C6, C8, RV21, E57; Nestabilities
Accents: Ribbon, buttons(Making Memories)
And that new punch I mentioned in my previous post- I used it too. My layout is based on the sketch at Stamp Something- this week's challenge is "sketch something". This is an anniversary card for my parents and for the Creative Inspirations challenge to make an anniversary card. Thanks for the push to get this done early. My parents have an anniversary at the end of this month. They are not as old as the folks in the image, but I thought it was so sweet.
(Note and tip about the image: if it looks funny, it is in no way due to the quality of Mo's work. It is totally my fault. When I printed this, I pasted it along with others into a new page in Photoshop elements. I forgot to check the resolution. It was at 72dpi. UGH! Always set your document to 300 for good results.)
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, K&Co., Making memories
Tools: Copics- B41, YG67, YG17, N3, E35, E13, E39, E21, E31, E00, Y00, R59, RV34, BV04, C0, V17, R20, B18, B45, C8; Nestabilities squares and scalloped squares large; Martha Stewart doily hearts border punch
Accents: pearls (Michael's)
Now about that card you came to look at... I made this one using Mercy's Sketch #55. It's also for the Digital Tuesday challenge- a Valentine for a loved one. I think this one is going to my niece. The image is a Pure Innocence from Digi Stamp Characters. The paper is from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush. I colored with my copics and did some piercing around the circle.
Thanks for looking.
