Unicorn Swim -- for All Dressed Up Stamps

 Today, I'm showcasing one of the New Releases at All Dressed Up Stamps. Twice each month, the design team showcases the month's new releases to draw attention to them.  Today is one of those days. You'l find the New Releases, and all the fantastic All Dressed Up digis in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop

There are 3 new releases this month, including the adorable Unicorn Swim.  I feel cooler just looking at her splashing around!


Isn't she sweet?  I colored Unicorn Swim with Copic markers, then fussy cut the image.  I cut the rocking card base out on my Silhouette Cameo 3, with a file I found in the Silhouette Design store.  I used papers from Crafter's Companion.  The sentiment is a die from Tonic Studios. 

You can see what the other design team members created with this month's new releases by visiting the All Dressed Up Facebook group, and the All Dressed Up Blog. You'll find challenges in both of those places with chances to win ADU images!  Join us!

Hey Sunshine! For The Paper Shelter

 It's Wednesday, and a new challenge begins today at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. Today is the start of the Paper Shelter Summer Break Challenge.  The challenge will run for 4 weeks.  Both teams are participating, prizes are as wonderful as they always are, but the teams are taking a break from commenting.  But PLEASE!  Enter and have fun while we take a bit of a break. 

There are so many adorable Summertime images in The Paper Shelter Store, and since this is the start of our Summer Break, I decided to color one of them up. This is Summer Attitude:


I colored Summer Attitude with Copic markers, then fussy cut that darling image out.  I used Distress Oxide inks and inked a background, hoping for sea, sky, and sun.  

The palm tree is a die by Spellbinders.  I found the surfboard paper at PixelScrapper.com. The 'Hey Sunshine' is from an old card kit I had.

You have a month to join our Anything Goes Summer Break Challenge at The Paper Shelter. If you use an image from The Paper Shelter Store, and you're the winner of the challenge, you'll get a $30 gift certificate to The Paper Shelter Store.  Wow!  Use any other image, and you win any 3 images of your choice.  Still a great prize!

Towards the Sunshine -- for Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Blog

 It's Tuesday, and it's the day that I'm fortunate enough to be able to post on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog. I love an opportunity to color up these wonderful images!  You'll find them here in the GJZCCK Etsy Shop

This week, the design team was challenged to use dots &/or stripes on their project.  I chose to use dots (OK, big dots that look A LOT like sunflowers) and stripes on my project. The image is called Towards the Sunshine.


I colored Towards the Sunshine with Copic markers and fussy cut the image.  The papers on this card are by We Are 3 Digital Shop. They are part of the Sunflower Collection.

I hope you visit the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog often.  Then, check out the CCK Facebook group for even more inspiration and another challenge.

Black & White -- For Paper ala Mode Challenges

 It's Saturday, and a new challenge is underway at Paper ala Mode Challenges. It all happens over at The Outlawz Challenges.  The challenge will run for 2 weeks, is sponsored by We Are 3 Digital Shop, and has the theme of Black & White. 

Bonnie has some beautiful floral printables in the We Are 3 Digital Shop that can either be colored, inked, or left as is.  For the sake of this Black & White challenge, I left the Floral Mums printable alone.  I have colored it up, and it's gorgeous!



I printed the Floral Mums printable on a 5x5 square, then used the flower shaped die to cut it out.  I used a slightly larger layer to back it with for some contrast. 

The 'Thank You' sentiment is from the All Occasion Sentiment Set.  I used the same set of flower shaped dies to cut it out, and several layers of designer paper to make a flower.  

The dotted papers on this card are from the Mostly Dots papers. 

I hope you can join us this next 2 weeks at Paper ala Mode Challenges for our Black & White challenge.  One participant will be given a gift certificate to the We Are 3 Digital Shop.  Great prize!

Nautical Thanks -- for Dies R Us Challenges

 It's the 15th of the month, and it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges.  The challenge will run for the next 2 weeks.  It is Anything Goes!  Just use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store.  Easy, right?

I recently celebrated a birthday, and got some awesome gifts.  I needed some thank you cards to let those friends and family know their thoughtfulness was appreciated.  Since it's summer, I thought a nautical themed card would be appropriate:

The 'Thanks' word shaped die is by Crafter's Companion.  It cuts out the outline, then the letters (which are all connected).  

I cut the letters out of a piece of Nautical paper from We Are 3 Digital Shop. I inked the edges with Colorbox Royal Blue Ink

Some of the ephemera were also cut out of Nautical paper, and were inked with Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.   The sailboats are dies from Impression Obsession. The other nautical ephemera is by Crafter's Companion

I hope you can join us at Dies R Us Challenges these next 2 weeks for our Anything Goes challenge.  Remember, just use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store

 It's Wednesday, and that means there's a new challenge beginning today at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.  Every Wednesday, a new challenge begins.  This week, team B brings you the challenge (me!) and the theme is 'Feminine'.  There are so, so, so many wonderful feminine images in The Paper Shelter Store, that you just have to take a look!  Find your favorite (or several), color it up, and enter it in our Feminine challenge this week.

When I was exploring The Paper Shelter Store, I found this Victorian lady.  I thought she was so elegant.  Definitely feminine!  I decided to create with The Lady...

I colored The Lady with Copic markers.  I used a stitched oval die to cut her out, and inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.

The papers on this card are by Crafter's Companion. So is the 'Fabulous' die.   I cut the card base out on my Silhouette Cameo 3, using a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The piece of lace is from my stash. 

I hope you join us this week at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog for our Feminine Challenge. If you're the lucky winner, and you used a Paper Shelter image, you'll win a $30 gift certificate to The Paper Shelter Store.  Wow!

On the Moon -- for Ching Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog

I have a confetti embossing folder that I thought might look like falling stars (if you use your imagination).  I also have been wanting to color up the lovely On the Moon.  Here's what I created:


I colored On the Moon with Copic markers.  The background paper (behind the embossed piece) is from We Are 3 Digital Shop. It is one of the Daydreams papers. The stitched stars are Tutti Designs dies.

For My (4-legged) Friend -- and The Paper ala Mode Challenges

 It's Saturday, and we're starting a new challenge at The Paper ala Mode Challenge.  You'll find it all happening at The Outlawz Challenges, where there is a challenge every day of the week! The Paper ala Mode challenges run for 2 weeks and have a theme.  The theme for the next 2 weeks is 'Fur, Feathers, or Fins'.  Many of us are animal lovers, so I think this will be a popular  one! As always Bonnie Kohane, of We Are 3 Digital Shop is sponsoring the challenge.  Thank you, Bonnie! 

My birthday is in July, and last year for my birthday, Bonnie made myself and the design team a set of papers and printables called Muddy Paws.  I cannot tell you how much I've enjoyed them, using them many times on many projects!  The team and I used them again for today's inspiration on the 'Fur, Feathers, and Fins' theme.


I cut out the Muddy Paws printable in the shape of a doghouse (die by Crafter's Companion).  It cuts into the face of the card.  There are also several Muddy Paws papers used on this card.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthday Sentiment Set.

The dog shaped die cuts are by Cheery Lynn designs. 

The Outlawz has a new Ning platform, so if it is your first time on the new site, you'll need to log in.  It's very similar to the old site, but hopefully with less issues.  I hope you can join us this next two weeks at Paper ala Mode for the Fur, Feathers, and Fins challenge.  I'd love to see your creations, and Bonnie gives a wonderful gift certificate to one winner for the We Are 3 Digital Shop Store

I have a few friends that live out of state and I try to send them cards every week or so.  I'm always in need of friendship cards.  So, when I saw this Crafter's Companion connecting word die, I knew I had to have it...


I cut the 'Friend' word die out of the middle of the 6x6 card, then put the green card behind it to add some stability.  I found the pretty floral paper in my stash, and it looked like summer to me, so I used it to add color to the panels of the card.  The dragonfly die is by Cheery Lynn.  I have used the small one here, which is no longer available, but the large dragonfly size is.

I'll show you my card first, then the sketch.

This card uses the Bugaboo Stamps digital image, Ladybug Daisy.  I colored Ladybug Daisy with Copic markers. 

Here's the sketch for the current Stella Says Sketch challenge over on Catch the Bug:

As you can see, I followed that sketch almost exactly.  I even put the image in the same place, because I thought I would like all that white space.  Then, of course, I had to try to fill it, so I added some sequins.

The papers are from Crafter's Companion, and the sentiment is from a stamp set I've had for a long, long time. It's from Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you can join us over at Catch the Bug Challenges for our Stella Says Sketch Challenge. I'd love to see your take on the sketch, and Bugaboo Stamps has such generous prizes!

Floral Butterfly Thank You -- for Bugaboo Stamps

 It's Saturday, and there is a new Anything Goes Challenge starting over on the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  It will run for the next 2 weeks. 

I have a thing about coloring with pencils on Kraft paper.  I love the look of it, and whenever I color with pencils, I almost always print the image on Kraft.  That's exactly what I did today.

This Floral Butterfly Thank You comes with 2 versions -- this one, and a plain one without a sentiment. 

I used Spectrum Noir Colorblend pencils on this, and Crafter's Companion papers. The butterfly die is also from Crafter's Companion.

I hope you are able to link up over on the Catch The Bug Blog for our Anything Goes Challenge.  I'd love to see what you create!

Happy Rose Day -- For The Paper Shelter

 It's Wednesday, and that means a new challenge is underway at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog!  The challenge will run for a week, and the theme is 'Digital'.  Use a digital image, digital paper, sentiment, or all of the above.  We'd love to see a Paper Shelter image used, and if you're chosen as the winner of the challenge, you'll get an awesome $30 gift certificate to spend in The Paper Shelter Store!  Wow! 

The Paper Shelter has such awesome products that I had trouble deciding what to color up for today's challenge.  Since the first day of summer is soon upon us, I decided on Rose...

Rose has flowers, butterflies, plus skin and hair -- everything I like in an image!  So, she was pure pleasure for me to color with my Copic markers.  

I modified a sketch a saw at Sketch Saturday to create this card.  The bit of designer paper is a pad from Crafter's Companion.  The butterflies are cut out of the same pad.  All the dies are also from Crafter's Companion.  The sentiment is a stamp from Close To My Heart. 

I hope you can join us this week at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog for our 'Digital' Challenge.  I'd love to see your creations, and we have wonderful prizes you could win!

Magical Moments -- for Dies R Us Challenges

 Life is full of magical moments when you look for them!  I'm convinced of that!  The card I made for today's Dies R Us Challenges reflects that.

There is a new challenge that starts today over on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and it will run for the next 2 weeks. All you need to do is use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store. Magically easy, right?

Are you a fan of Mary Poppins?  It was one of my favorite movies growing up, and I was so excited to see its remake a couple of years ago.  This die by Sizzix takes me right back to that movie.  It's called The Park.  I used a small portion of the dies in the set and created this...



The houses and tree on the base of the card are dies by Crafter's Companion.  The sentiment is from a clear stamp set from Molly Harrison called A Summer Day.  I stamped it on a label die by Crafter's Companion.  I used a variety of Distress Oxide Inks on the base of the card. 

I hope you join our challenge these next 2 weeks at Dies R Us challenges. I'd love to see what magical creation you create!
