Enjoy the Little Things -- for Cute Card Thursday

 It's Thursday, and every Thursday, a new challenge begins at Cute Card Thursday.  Some weeks there is a theme, but this week, it is Anything Goes!  Yes, everyone's favorite -- Anything Goes! The challenge starts today, and goes all week.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps. I had the joy of coloring up the delightful digi, Travel At Your Own Pace. I used it to create this:


I colored Travel At Your own Pace with Copic markers, then used a wonky stitched die by The Scrapping Cottage to cut it out. 

The papers on this card are by AMB Illustrations.  The paw print die cut is by Cheery Lynn, and was purchased at the Dies R Us Store. 

I hope you can join us this week at Cute Card Thursday, and a big thank you to Whimsy Stamps for sponsoring us!

The Tender Angie -- For Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog

 It's Tuesday, and it's my day to post on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog.  A new challenge is just getting underway, with the monthly theme of Magical World (fairies, mermaids, unicorns, dryads). 

I had not yet had the opportunity to color one of Ching-Chou Kuik's wonderful mermaids, so I took advantage of this month's challenge  theme to do just that!  Here is The Tender Angie:


You can find The Tender Angie and all the wonderful digital images in the Ching-Chou Kuik Etsy Shop.

I colored The Tender Angie with Copic markers, then set about finding papers and a sentiment.  I found both in the We Are 3 Digital Shop.  The waves were created with Under the Sea papers and Lawn Fawn wavy dies.  The sentiment is one of the Mermaid Wishes Sentiments

I hope you can join us over on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog this month for our Magical World Challenge!  I'd love to see what you create & we've got great prize you could win -- like this The Tender Angie!

Pansy Pail Sympathy - for Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges

 It's the first Monday of the month, and it's time for a new challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges. Challenges run for a month, and they are always anything goes.  

We're having a cool (OK, cold) spring, so I'm craving flowers and bright colors.  That made me want to color up one of the many beautiful floral images in Jan Mahew's Shop. I used the flower pot full of pansies from Springtime.


I colored the flower pot and pansies with Copic markers.  I cut it out with a stitched circle die by Crafter's Companion.  The doily die is from Anna Griffin. 

The sentiment is from a different Jan Mahew set. It's part of the Botanical Orchids set

Papers on this card are by We Are 3 Digital Shop. They are part of GranMargaret's Flowers

There are some great prizes that you could win for linking up at Jan's Digi Stamps challenges. There's a random gift certificate awarded, and another for a Jan Mahew image. There are also 3 designer choice awards given.

Tulips for a Friend -- for SheepSki Designs Challenges

 It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for a new challenge over on the SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog.  The challenges run all month and have a theme.  This month the theme is Floral Dance.  You will find many great floral images in the SheepSki Designs Etsy Shop, but you'll also find great dance images, so you can go a variety of directions with this theme. 

This month, I chose the pretty Tulips image to create with. Here's what I designed:



I colored the Tulips image with Copic markers, then used a Spellbinders die to cut it out and back it.  I inked the edges of the frame with some Close To My Heart die. 

The DP is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the Springtime Papers

That is my inspiration for Floral Dance.  I hope you can join us this month at SheepSki Designs challenges, and share your take on this theme!  I'd love to see your creations, and we've got great digis you could win -- like this one!

I don't think you have to have frills, dresses and lace to be feminine, so I colored up the delightful Day Dreaming to create this:


I colored Day Dreaming with Copic markers, then cut her out with a Spellbinders die.

I cut out the card base on my Silhouette Cameo 3 with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.

The designer papers on this card are by We Are 3 Digital Shop.  The blue jeans background paper is one of the Howdy papers.  The strip of pink rose/brick paper is from the Pinkalicious Collection

The lace and crinkle ribbon are from a company no longer in business, 3 Girl JAM.  I computer generated the sentiment and cut it out with a banner die from Crafter's Companion.

The day I made this card, we had snow showers, but I am very ready for spring.  I was thinking sunshine, and warmth, and things that make me think of spring -- like butterflies!


This card uses a Create-a-Card die by Crafter's Companion called Butterfly Love.  The sentiment was stamped on a frame by Nellie's Choice that was purchased during a European die weekend event at Dies R Us. It is also available in the Didi Crafts (sister store) here.  The small butterfly on the sentiment tag is by Spellbinders.

I hope this card make you think of and feel like spring, and I hope you can join us at Dies R Us Challenges.  There will be a gift certificate awarded, and 3 designer choice awards!

This week's freebie is a cutie, and paired up with the right sentiment, it can be used for any number of occasions.  This is Bees - Small Flower:

I'm Glad You're my Mom -- For JDS Challenges

 It's time for some mid-month inspiration at It's the first Monday of the month at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges (or JDS Challenges). Challenges are absolutely Anything Goes -- knitting, glass etching, scrapbooking, woodworking -- we want to see it all!  There is a gift certificate for a project using a Jan Mahew image, and another random winner each month. There will also be 3 designer choice awards. Awesome!

Jan Mahew has some awesome flower files.  They are some of my favorites.  I have lots of flower stamps, as they are my favorite thing to color.  Jan's are so great because they come in black & white and precolored versions.  There are also sentiments included with each file. For today's mid-month inspiration, I used the beautiful Botanical Orchids digital stamp to create this:

I colored Botanical Orchids with a combination of Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush markers and Copic Markers. I cut it out with a Spellbinders label die, inking around the edge with ink from Close To My Heart while it was still in the frame.  The sentiment is from the newly released set called, My Mom. 

Papers on this card are by We Are 3 Digital Shop. The background paper is from the Fairy Land Collection. The butterfly border (by Crafter's Companion) paper and the sentiment paper are from the Sentimental Canvas Collection

The pretty crinkle ribbon was a recent prize I won from Diana Larson.  It is available in her D.L. Art Etsy Shop.  The butterfly was found in my stash.  I've been waiting for the perfect project to use it on. 

There's still time to join us this month at JDS Challenges.  I'd love to see what you create, and I'd also love to see you have a chance at the 2 gift certificates.  Use a Jan Mahew image to increase your chances!

I Miss Seeing You -- For Dies R Us Challenges

 It's the 15th of the month, and that means it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges.  Challenges are always Anything Goes, as long as you use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store

I've had this set of glasses dies by Impression Obsession for quite awhile, and I decided it was way past time that I did something creative with them. Here's what I made for this challenge:



I started out by inking my background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Peacock Feathers (all found in the Dies R Us Store).  Then, I cut out various layers of the card with a set of Stitched Scroll Frame dies from Frantic Stamper.  The sentiment was computer generated, and cut out with the smallest of the Scroll Frame dies. Then, I used 3 of the glasses dies by Impression Obsession as focal points on the card. 

I hope you join us this next 2 weeks at Dies R Us Challenges. You could be the lucky winner of a gift certificate, or one of the designer choice recipients.

Sweet Bunny -- for Ching-Chou Kuik

 Greetings, everyone!  I am posting today on the Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge & Inspiration BlogWe have a new challenge getting underway on the CCK blog.  This month, our theme is 4-legged friends.  My 4-legged friends mean as much to me as some of me 2-legged friends, so I highly approved of this theme!

There are some wonderful images in the GJZCCK Etsy Shop that are perfect for this theme, including Sweet Bunny, which I used on this card: 

I used the black & white version here of Sweet Bunny, then colored it with Copic markers.   I cut her out and backed her with nesting dies by Crafter's Companion.  The stitched background is a die from Diamond Press.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with banner die by Crafter's Companion. I used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper on this, too.

You'll find wonderful inspiration on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog, so check there often.  You'll find another challenge and more inspiration in the CCK Facebook group

It's Bird Chirping Weather -- For JDS Challenges

 It's the first Monday of the month, and that can only mean one thing -- it's time for a new challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges (or JDS Challenges). Challenges are absolutely Anything Goes -- knitting, glass etching, scrapbooking, woodworking -- we want to see it all!  There is a gift certificate for a project using a Jan Mahew image, and another random winner each month. There will also be 3 designer choice awards. Awesome!

Jan had several new releases in March.  One was called Springtime, and it's what I used to design today's card.  One of my favorite parts of spring is having the birds return.  I eagerly await the first robin, the first loon on the lake, and the first bluebird.  We have bird feeders and bird houses throughout our property.  So, I really love this new Springtime set, with its bird and birdhouse theme.  There are black & white and precolored versions available.  I used the black & white on this card:


I picked up some inexpensive alcohol markers by Diamond Press, and used them on this project.  You get what you pay for.  I don't recommend them.  Their shading was terrible.  The light orange looked brown, and was darker than the medium and dark shades.  I was very disappointed with them.   After suffering through coloring the birdhouse and bird from the Springtime set, I fussy cut them both out.  The sentiment is also from the Springtime set. I used a set of Spellbinders label dies to cut it out and back it.

I made the slimline card using a slimline cutting die from Tutti Designs. 

I hope you join us this month at JDS Challenges.  I'd love to see what you create, and I'd also love to see you have a chance at the 2 gift certificates.  Use a Jan Mahew image to increase your chances!

The Paper Shelter has wonderful digital images.  They come with a black & white version, but also a pre-colored version, and some background papers.  It's fantastic! I was given the opportunity to color up the darling Enchanting Butterflies, and I created this:


I colored Enchanting Butterflies with Copic markers, then cut her out with an inverted nesting die from Crafter's Companion.  The 'Hello Spring' sentiment is also a Crafter's Companion die.  The butterfly dies are from Paper Wishes. The floral background paper is from Crafter's Companion.  It sang 'springtime' to me.

I found the sentiment while cruising Pinterest. Where else, right?

The floral stitched background is a slimline die from Diamond Press.  The floral background paper is part of the Caring Thoughts paper pad by Crafter's Companion.  The paper flowers are from my stash.
