Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 149!

Ladies and Gentlemen I present Sketch 149

 1. I cut the background papers with the card creator dies.
2. I cut out the banners with my Scan N Cut (Wish I would have made them thinner…)
3. I stamped the Sentiment I combined the wonderful stamp from a penny black set and the Friend stamp from Hero Arts.

That’s about it all the paper is from The Paper Studio


Last Day :(

Today is the last day of the DS4J party. It’s been a great and fun few days seeing everyone’s creations! Today we have one last freebie and I think this might be my favorite card of mine that I made for the party!

The Digi stamp is today’s freebie and I colored it with copics stamped the happy birthday in Ladybug red ink and added the 3 stars in the bottom which are old creative memories stickers!

My Dress, My Dress, My Fancy Dress

I don’t know why I’m wearing it I must confess, My dress my dress I love my dress would someone tell me why I put it on. 

OK this card made me think of a song from one of my favorite musicals and I couldn’t help myself.

1. First I cut the background with my card creator dies.
2. Then I used my perfect layers to do all the other layers (and broke my gyro cut in the process 😦 )
3. I glued it all together!!!

I did use my chameleons to color the image!

Glitter Flower

Hello! I hope everyone has been having a good week so far!!

OK so this is one other one that doesn’t have a whole lot of notes because I didn’t have my notebook but I remember a little more on this one,

1. So first I stamped my little flower image which I believe is one of those $1 stamps from Michels.
2. Then I took my quickie glue pen and traced over where the image was stamped and put some Sparkle N Sprinkle Misty Isles glitter Then I went through and colored in the not glittered parts… I wish I hadn’t though… It just looks funny…
3.I cut the background layers using my cuttlebug and spellbinders card creator dies. Then I used the Spellbinders nesties scallop circles and large circles dies to cut out the background for the flower.
4. I sponged/blended some Memento Rosebud Ink onto the circle that the flower was stamped on. After I masked the flower of coarse.

Orgnizing Update: Ink and Coloring. And the First Day of the Party!!

Hello Everyone!! It’s organizing Update Day! This week is Ink’s and Coloring and this is where my reward from last week comes in!

I got a new marker case!!! I haven’t bought any new copic markers in probably about 3 years because my smaller case was filled and I had nowhere to go with them!! Now I have tons of room!

Then for inks I’ve been sort of working on a catalog… I’m still knee deep in the stamp catalog so I haven’t gotten the ink one going yet but I did print out these that I will use to start with.

And since I promised updates on the craft binder here’s a few in progress pictures.

So there’s no new challenge for this week. So there won’t be an update post next week. But! I still have something awesome planned 🙂

And don’t forget it’s the first day of the DS4J Party on Facebook!

The wonderful Margy has shared a fabulous Freebie for today’s party and of course I made something with it!

I really like how bright and colorful this one came out!

Let’s enter some challenges:

New Desgin Team!!!

What a 3rd one? Yup! I can’t wait to be a part of the Crafting When We Can Design Team and it’s time for my first challenge! This months challenge is use a Digi Stamp and we have a wonderful sponsor of Melonheadz!

Unfortunately at the time I’m writing this and when I made the card I’ve been fighting a cold so it’s not the best thing I’ve made and this blog post won’t do it near enough justice.  When I got selected for this team and went to select my choice for my first sponsorship images to work with I was originally going to just pick from the ones others had already selected then I was looking through the store and found this set and I knew I had to have it!!!

It’s Newsies!!! OK the actual set is called newspaper but come on guys it’s Newsies!!! Did you really think I could pass this up!!! I’m so excited to really get into using this set once I’m feeling a little better!! In fact I’ll probably go curl up in my bed and watch Newsies while I try to shake this cold!! (Still hoping I’m over it by the time this goes live!!)

I hope you’ll join us over at Crafting When We Can!!!
