City Crafter Challenge - Polka Dots

Hi City Crafters!  This week Amy is our host for the challenge and she would like us to use polka dots on our projects and cards.  For my DT card I chose this cute dog stamp from Whipper Snapper; please stop by the blog to see what all the DT members have created for your inspiration :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  A cold and snowy day here in Colorado :)

Cute Little Fox

The little fox on my card is so cute; the fox is from an Ellen Hutson set called "Artic Pals".  I colored the fox, leaves and tree with my Zig markers and added a few little green, sparkly gems.  Because a white background would have been too stark I added a background of yellow striped paper on a green card base.

I am going to submit this card to this week's sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch, here's the sketch:

Happy you stopped by today and a sunny day it is here on the front range :)

CAS Colours & Sketches #259

The challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches this week is a sketch challenge. I enjoy sketch challenges, so got to work on my card above.

I mixed distress inks and water on white card stock then cut the strips behind my tag and the tag from the dry paper.  Sorry to say I don't know which stamp set the images are from as a fellow stamper sent them to me :)  The sentiment is from Newton's Nook.

Here's the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today, have a cozy one :)

Twofer Card Challenge #2


I made the 2 cards above for a new challenge site: Twofer Card Challenge; this week's challenge is Hearts.  The focus of the challenge is to make 2 distinctly different cards using the same stamp.  I used a Santoro gojus girl on a horse stamp and a little heart stamp from Neat & Tangled for my cards.  If you look closely at the horses reins you'll see there are little hearts :)

Here's a close up of both cards:

A "happy Spring" card, using colors of spring and the little hearts as flowers

A "I Love You" card, using Love colors and the hearts as just that, hearts.

So happy you stopped by today and a sunny day it is here on the front range :)

City Crafter Challenge - Booksmart

Marina is our host this week at City Crafter and she has asked us to use books when making our project.  I made this card with stamps from Newton's Nook.  The kitty and the books are colored with Prismacolor watercolor pencils and the border die is from MFT.

We would love to have you join us this week; please stop by the blog to see the wonderful cards our DT has made too :)
So happy you stopped by today :)

Pink makes anything fabulous!

Here's another of my favorite Rubbernecker stamp sets "splash party".  I didn't really realize until after I posted this card that it's not CAS, however I'm going to enter it into the challenge at CASe this Sketch because the image from the photo (see below) made me think the candles looked like these funny, skinny flamingo legs.

Thanks for stopping by, have a FABULOUS day!
