Brown Sugar Challenge #157 Animals!

Happy Friday!  It’s time for a new challenge at Brown Sugar Challenges and today, we are featuring “Animals”.  This challenge is sponsored Robyn’s Fetish Digital Images who is offering a gift of 3 Digital Images for our winner.

For my card today, I’ve used Robyn’s Fetish image called, “Farah Fawn” to showcase my “Animal” card.  I colored Farah with Copic Markers and framed her using a My Favorite Things die with burlap paper by DCWV.   I gave her a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Chit Chat” set as well as a birdy friend from that same set.  My paper is Lawn Fawn’s “Into the Woods.”

Since I am no longer sending my cards to Operation Write Home I broke out my Wink of Stella glitter pen and gave birdy a bit of shine.

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Challenge: For Dad or Special Male

WooHoo, another busy Saturday at the desk of The Crafty Nurse.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, I know I am.  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating the men in our lives.  Your card can be for any Dad, Special Male, or even son.  We have some really super sponsors this week too.  You have until Friday, May 15th to enter.

After you enter your card at Send a Smile 4 Kids, please consider donating it to some needy children who are hospitalized. We are growing and need your support.  Check out how.

Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:

1) Dollar Graphics Depot– offering a $15.00 Gift Certificate to their store

2) Crafty Sentiments – offering 3 digital images of winners choice

3) Inspired by Stamping – offering a $20.00 Gift Certificate

Thanks for your generosity sponsors!!

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Dollar Graphics Depot image called, “Kids Playing”.  I can’t get over that you get five (5) images in this set for $1.00.  Amazing.  This sweet boy is colored with Copic Markers.  I created the background with my B91 & V20 markers then faded it out with the zero to give it a patchy cloud like look.  The paper is from Doodle Bug’s, “Take Note” 6 x 6 pack and the sentiment and star are from Lawn Fawn, “Life is Good.” stamp set.

My second card is Henry from Crafty Sentiments.  I colored him with Copics and cut out a frame from My Favorite Things dies to highlight the image. The card base was cut out with the stitched die from Simon Says Stamp using Amy Tangerine’s, “Plus One” collection.  The sentiment is from The Craft Spot.

The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

It’s the fifth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built Anything Goes challenge.  This doesn’t come around too often, but it’s your time to do anything you wish.  You have until Tuesday, May 5th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.

For my card today I wanted to celebrate spring.  Here in New York, it’s been a long time coming!  I started by stamping the Repeat Impressions “My Sunshine 8402-M with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink so I could color it with Copics.  This stamp comes with the sentiment, which you can choose to use, or not.  If you don’t want to use the sentiment, simply cover it with scotch tape, then apply your ink and remove the tape.

To create the background I used B91, V20 and Zero markers.  The die is Lawn Fawn’s Journaling tag as well as Lawn Fawn’s 6 x 6 paper pack, “Bright Side” collection. The circle, flag, and rectangle dies are all from My Favorite Things. I finished it off with a few gems applied in a series of three.
