Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #135: Celebration!

Happy Saturday Friends!  It’s time for another Send a Smile 4 Kids (SAS4Kids) challenge and the theme for this entry is CELEBRATION!  Whoo Hoo!  Your celebration cards can be anything you celebrate for kids like birthdays, graduations, a job well done or heck, just celebrate by sending a hello!

Our sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:

1) DRS Designs:  a $10.00 Gift Certificate

2) Kitchen Sink Stamps: 15.00 Gift Certificate.

My card today celebrates these beautiful butterflies by DRS Designs called, “Large Butterflies”.  I colored them using a stipple method I learned at Kit & Clowder using RV99, RV69, RV66 & RV63.  I outlined them with a clear gel pen and popped them on over Doodlebug pattern paper.  The die I used to cut the “V” shape is from My Favorite Things.


We hope you’ll join us over at Send A Smile 4 Kids and “Celebrate” with us during our challenge.  You have until Friday, October 28th to enter. We also would love to see you donate some of your cards to our kids.  Here’s how.


From The Heart Stamps Sketch #139

Hello friends!  Happy Monday!  I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image – the rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to “use a number.” 


For my card I used only the sketch this week.  I began with the February Stamp of the Month “Snowman and Cocoa” which I colored with Copic Markers in the combination of E35, YR15, Y15 and Y11 for the yellow and R59, R46 and R27 for the reds.  I just got my sewing machine back and and had some fun with the settings making a great pattern on the lawn fawn paper.  I also added some faux stitching and doodling with my pigma micron pen. For a few final touches I added a glitter jelly pen to the snowflakes and used the sentiment from “Hello Sentiments.”


You have until Sunday, February 21st to enter Sketch #139 at From The Heart Stamps.  Hope to see you there!

From The Heart Stamps – Mid-Week Inspiration

Happy Wednesday.  Today I’m posting some Mid-Week Inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.

My card today is “Birdbrain Snowman” colored with Copic Markers.  I stamped the background snowflakes by Clearly Besotted in Versamark. The pattern paper is Fancy Pants.  I finished off with glitter pen.


I look forward to seeing you over at From The Heart Stamps Community both on the blog and on Facebook.
