Creative Knockouts - Recipe Challenge

It's a new challenge at Creative Knockouts and the theme is Follow the Recipe:  1 image, 1 sentiment, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments; either all the same of can be different.

The sponsor for this fun challenge is Fabrika Fantasy and for my design team project, I had the pleasure of using Fabrika's Merry Cow pre-colored digital image.


This image puts a smile on my face!  She is one cute cow, and since this image was pre-colored, it made this card a quick and easy one!  Please join us at Creative Knockouts this week and share your creations with us!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges - Tea Trolley Dolly

Hello, I hope you're all well.  Today starts a new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges and the sponsor this week is the awesome and fun Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.

For my design team project, I created an A2 sized, landscape orientated card using the fun Tea Trolley Dolly.  This lady reminds me of a Tea Trolley Attendant one might see on the British Comedy Are You Being Served.  If you haven't seen this series, you must check it out - it's hilarious and quite campy!

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and used Distress Oxide ink in the shade Seedless Preserves to highlight the edges.  The sentiment was one I had in my stash.


Please join us this week at Penny's Challenges, my design team sisters and I hope to inspire you with our Dr. Digi creations.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Cardz 4 Galz Challenge - Weather Conditions

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day!  I wish you a day filled with love and good chocolate :)

A new challenge starts today at Cardz 4 Galz and the theme for this round is Weather Conditions.  I had to give this theme some thought.  I didn't want to create anything with a winter theme (most of us are over Winter!) and I don't have any stamp sets specifically for weather conditions then it came to me.....a Summer Beach Day with the weather being clear, hot and breezy!

Mr. Alligator is chillin' in his hammock, enjoying the sea breezes and a gorgeous, clear, sunny day!  This card measures a standard A2 and all images are Cricut cuts.  I've added some faux pearls and gold Stickles for accents and called it complete.  Are you dreaming of that summer day?  It will soon be here!

Please join us at Cardz 4 Galz and please remember to visit the new challenge blog The Paper Funday Challenges and try your luck at winning.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges - Daffodils Circle Scroll

Today starts a new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges and the sponsor for this weeks is the sweet Pattie's Creations.

For my design team project, I had the pleasure of using the Daffodils Circle Scroll from Pattie's Creations.


With all the cold weather everyone has been experiencing, even here in Florida, it was nice to create a card with a bright and warm feel.  This is a lovely image and very versatile which made creating this card very easy.  This card measures 5" square and the image was easy to color up with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  After stamping a sentiment inside the frame and adding a few sequins for bling, the only thing left was to add a ribbon and pop up the focal image on foam pads.  All done!

Please join in this week at Penny's Challenges and we hope you will be inspired to create along with us.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

The Paper Funday Challenges - Love with a Twist

Hello and Happy Wednesday.  Today begins a new challenge at  The Paper Funday Challenges and the theme for February is Love with a Twist:  Create a paper project with a Love theme using the colors Red, Pink and White.  The sponsor for the challenge this month is Hetty Clare and she has some adorable images.

For my design team projects, I choose to create a Candy Box and Gift Tag using the Mini Miss Loveheart pre-colored digital stamp from Hetty Clare.



For the gift tag, I used a die to cut out a large tag out of designer paper.  I used another die to cut out a mat from more designer paper.  I then fussy cut the image and used a mini Action Wobble to pop up Mini Miss Loveheart.

The candy box is an SVG cut that I've had for a while but unfortunately I am unable to remember where it came from.  The little box will hold 6 pieces of fun sized candies easily.

I hope you will join in the challenge at Paper Funday this month.  We would love to see your creations and we hope to inspire your creativity.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Make My Monday Challenge - Red, Pink and White

It's Monday and a new challenge starts today at Make My Monday.  The theme for the challenge this week is Red, Pink and White.  Since we are close to Valentine's Day, my design team project is a Valentine's Day card that incorporates all the colors in the theme.


The card measures a standard A2 with gorgeous papers from Recollections.  I die cut the heart and backed with red paper, then layered on top of a pink paper doily I had in my stash.  Finally, a few pink sequins were added for some bling.  

We hope you will join us this week at Make My Monday Challenges; we are looking forward to seeing what you create with the theme colors.

Also, don't forget to visit the new challenge blog The Paper Funday Challenges this Wednesday for the announcement of the winners from the January challenge and for the start of Februarys' challenge.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Chuck the Cherub

It's the first Saturday of the month and that means a new challenge at Crafty Calendar.  The sponsors for this month are Crafty Ribbons and Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.   There is a theme this month also:  Use Texture and Add a Ribbon.

For my design team project, I had the pleasure of using Dr. Digi's Chuck the Cherub digital image.  This Cherub is so funny, I don't understand why he's carrying a flashlight..possibly he's lost his bow and arrows?


This card measures 5" x 5", is a tent folding card with 2 ribbons; the white one is hard to see and with texture on the card stock; some of the stripes are glittered.  I've also added 3 pieces of card candy for more texture.

I hope you've been inspired to join us this month at Crafty Calendar, hope to see you there.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
