Ellen Hutson’s Pin-Sight Challenge December

Today I got off work a little early and wanted to play so I created my December Pin-Sight Challenge for Ellen Hutson’s Classroom.  Here is the inspiration:


I used the inspiration from Julie’s past Make it Monday using the Brushstroke Christmas. I also used Mistletoe & Holly stamp and dies stamping them with gold embossing powder and watercoloring with Distress Markers.  The background is We R Memory Keepers Basketweave folder cut from My Favorite Things Brushed Gold Metallic paper.

A Day For Daisies

Hello!  Today I’ve got a quick card for A Day For Daisies current challenge.  The requirement is to either paper piece of paper pierce.  I chose to pierce.  I used an old template from my stash to create the piercings and colored the image with Copic Markers. I inadvertently got smeared printer ink on the background so it became a night scene.  The remainder of the card is from the June Simon Says Stamp card kit.

ADFD – Challenge 122

It’s another busy day at the Crafty Nurse’s Blog.  Here is another card using one of my favorite digital companies, A Day For Daisies.  I always try to enter this challenge because I love coloring the images and hope to win more!  Right now, this image is FREE on the challenge site.   I colored this sweet image with Copic Markers and used American Crafts “#Summer” paper pack. The flower dies are from WPlus9, the rectangle dies are Lawn Fawn, and the frame die is MFT.  Finally, the background is impression obsession and the sentiment is Simon Says Stamp “Circle Sayings”.

Ellen Hutson & Lawn Fawn Pinspiration

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’ve made a birthday card for Ellen Hutson’s new “Mix It Up Challenge” with Lawn Fawn.  I just love this stamp set by Ellen & Julie Ebersole.  I also added in Lawn Fawn’s bird from Critters in the Forest.   The animals are colored with Copic Markers and the Balloons are Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters, and Peacock Feathers. The stars are a combination of Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp.  I inlayed the balloons, but added dimension with foam tape for the entire card panel.

A Day For Daisies

One of the challenges I personally love participating in is the A Day For Daisies.  One of the reasons I enjoy participating is that Tammy, the owner and artist is kind enough to provide freebies for each and every participant.  Thanks Tammy!  Today I colored Doll Face Beauty #5 with copics for this weeks challenge that calls for use of ombre.  I took my favorite Kuretake Watercolors and used the golds, copper and pearl to create a ombre background.  The sentiment is Clearly Besotted.  I kept the rest of the card very clean and simple.

Watercolor Leaf – Thanks

Playing with my new Kuretake watercolor set based on an idea from Kathy Racoosin.  I used the Tim Holtz Maple leaf stamped in Gathered Twigs then watercolored with oranges, greens, and browns.  I stamped the background leaves with markers in the same shades.  The tag is Papertrey Ink and the card base is Bazzill Peanut Fudge.

Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit; Card 2

Here is my second card using the Simon Says Stamp November kit with the addition of a woodland friend from Lawn Fawn’s “Snow Day”.  I also used the Birch Die from Impression Obsessions and the cloud die from My Favorite Things.  The trees are stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Field Green and Archival Ink in Library Green.  The hills were created with the Simon Says Stamp hills die and the trunks are stamped with SSS Lipstick Red using the candy cane stamp from the kit.  Hope you enjoy!

Seasons Greetings

Today’s card uses the From the Heart Stamps, Stamp of the Month, “Flappy Birthday”  colored with Copics.  If you join the monthly challenge on the From the Health Stamps blog, you get a free image every month.  Isn’t that generous?  Also, from 9/5/14 through 9/14/14, they are having a fun blog hop and prizes that includes helping design a Bird Brain image.  Check it out here.  This card was based on the shaker card from Imke, one of the FTHS designers.  Here is her example.  I had some trouble with the lighting and the transparency, but couldn’t wait until daylight to shoot.  I used the Glitz “Brightside” 6 x 6 paper pad and miscellaneous sequins.  The square die is My Favorite Things and the label is Simon Says Stamp die with sentiment also from My Favorite Things. Last, the border in the middle is the stitched Lawn Fawn die.

ADFD Birthday Close-up

Good Morning all.  Today I have an adorable A Day For Daisies image colored with my copics. The challenges called for use of Glossy Accents, which I used on her wings.  The paper pack is from Glitz 6 x 6 “Hello Darling”.  I’ve really enjoyed this paper.  I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week, but that challenge has already closed – just my luck. I chose the sentiment from WPlus 9 to support a birthday theme. I also used the MFT Stitched Flag Dies and Spellbinders Rectangle Dies.
