Lil Lovely Hearts -- for Scrapbook Stamp Society

I'm on the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog today with this fun digi, Lil Lovely Hearts.

I used Copic markers, distress inks, color pencils, and gel pens on this little beauty, Lil Lovely Hearts.  You can find her, and many, many fantastic images, in the My Besties Shop.

The card was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo 3, using a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The 3D banner is a die from Close To My Heart.  The sentiment is computer generated. The gold heart stickers are from Paper Wishes. 

Thanks for visiting today, Julie

Think Spring! for QKR Stampede

Friday!  Fri-yay!   We've gotten lots of fresh snow this week here in Northwest Wisconsin, so I thought this snowman would be in vogue for this week's Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog.  I don't know about you, but I'm thinking spring, and I think he is, too!



I hope he realizes that the same sun he's hoping for will be the end of him for the season!  This is QKR Stampede digi image Tan Snowman (Q-digi14702)  I colored the Tan Snowman with Copic markers, then used a die from Lawn Fawn to cut it out.  The card base is a cutting file from The Silhouette Design Store and was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo 3.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 

I hope you can join us this week at QKR Stampede for our Anything Goes challenge.  I'd love to see what you create!

Happy Birthday -- to The Outlawz!

The Outlawz Challenges has turned 7!  They are celebrating in a number of ways.  One of them is by giving away a free digi (thank you, Sheepski Designs!) for crafters to create with.  I love sunflowers, so I just had to play along! 


I colored the sunflowers with Copic markers.  The papers on this card are from MHKDesigns.  Love the sunflowers in the background!  Since the card is for a birthday celebration, I just had to make it into a birthday card!  The sentiment is from an old set I've had forever from a company no longer in business (a real acrylic stamp -- I never use them anymore!!)  The shimmer trim is from Close To My Heart.  The dies behind the sunflower are from Spellbinders, and the die used to cut out the sentiment is from Paper Wishes.

That's it for this post!  Enjoy the celebration!

Outlawz Special Challenge -- 7th birthday

Birthday Wishes -- Outlawz Monthly Progressive Challenge

I'm trying to play along with the Outlawz Monthly Progressive Challenge.  I really like this month's image called Wild Rose from Beccy's Place.  



I colored the Wild Rose image with Copic markers.  I didn't plan to fussy cut it, but a blop if ink made me do it, LOL.  

The sentiment is from Power Poppy.  The digital background paper is from MHKDesigns. The stitched oval die is from Die-namics. 

See you at The Outlawz!

I Woof You! for the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog

It's time for some mid-month inspiration over at the Path of Positivity Challenge blog.  This month's optional theme is the color red.  Our guest sponsors this month are Ike's Art and Pattie's Creations

I had the great fun of working with this image from Ike's Art, Puppy Love:

I colored Puppy Love with Copic markers, computer generating the sentiment in the middle of the heart.  This was my husband's Valentine's Day card from our Golden Retriever, Gracie.  She is very blonde, so I made this a light colored Golden. Here she is, sending you valentine wishes.



The red background paper on this is a digital paper from Imagine That! Digistamp.  I created the heart shaped card using dies from Top Dog Dies (no longer in business).  The paw print brad is from Paper Wishes.

Red.  It's such a good color for Valentine's day, but it's also a great color for our cold, white and gray winter months.  I like bright, happy colors this time of year!

I hope you find time to join us yet this month at The Path of Positivity Challenge Blog.  This challenge goes until March 4.  You can enter the optional 'red' challenge, or anything positive or inspirational that you'd like.

Downhill Olympic Dog -- for QKR Stampede

Have you been watching the Olympics?  This card, for today's QKR Stampede challenge, is in honor of the Winter Olympics. 



This card uses QKR Stampede digital image, Cross country Skiing (Q-digi9208), colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  The snow background was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo 3 with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  I created the snow banks by cutting white paper into "hills".   The sentiment was computer generated for my brother's birthday.  He's been a ski patrol and ski instructor for over 30 years, so I thought he'd appreciate this hard working skier!

The challenges at QKR Stampede are always Anything Goes, and start each Friday.  I hope you can join us!
