Guest Designer For Crafting By Designs!

I was asked to be a guest designer for Crafting By Designs for this weeks challenge which is “Get Ready For Christmas”.  I was thrilled to be asked to participate and to share my card with you this week!  The sponsor for the challenge is Rick St. Dennis and I love his digital images.  There is something there for everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is Candy Making Nimbleknees Gherkin 3 Creepmas Elf.  As you can see I like the creepy….lol.  This was so much fun to color!  I added a bit of glitter for the bells and the stars.  I used a white gel pen for the outline on the outfit, the teeth and the dots on the snake.  The snowflake doily was made using the snowflake corner punch by Martha Stewart.  I used the Doo-hickey Snowflake die and a punched poinsettia flower by Recollections.  The sentiment is computer generated and mounted on card stock cut with the round and scalloped die by Spellbinders.

I hope you can play along with us this week!  We look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations!

Snowball Fairy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This gorgeous new rubber stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is called “Snowball Fairy”.  She’s super cute and comes with sentiments and a snowflake.  She was a charm to color up using Copics. I kept the card quite simple choosing to have the image the focal point.  The designer paper is  from the Kaiser Craft Mint Twist paper pad.  I used a MS border punch then wrapped it with sheer pink ribbon by Crafts.  I added mini pom poms threaded with embroidery floss through the middle and then I attached them to the bow.  I also used Stickles Stardust on the wings and stars because every fairy needs to sparkle!

Happy Anniversary!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made this card for my anniversary.  I find I struggle to make a card for men!  It’s hard to not add flowers and ribbons and pretty embellishments but I am very happy with this card and my husband loved it!  Of course, he’s my biggest fan so he might be a bit bias….lol!  I wonder would this card be considered CAS?  The supplies I used for this card are the number dies, the ‘Happy’ is a die and the little hearts are dies.  They are all from Simon Says Stamps.  The round scalloped die framing the number ‘21’ is by spellbinders.  The only stamping on this card is the word ‘anniversary’  which is a clear stamp also by Simon Says Stamps.  The red panel is embossed using the ‘Romance” folder by Cuttlebug.  The pearls are by Crafts.

For my last card as a Krafty Guest with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps I chose to use one of my very first Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and it’s called “Ozzie And Harriet”.  It’s such a cutie and works great as a Christmas card or for a winter birthday card.  My image is colored with Copics and double layered on navy blue and then baby blue card stock. The designer paper is Midnight Frost by Bo Bunny.  The larger snowflakes are a Doo-Hickey die and the smaller ones are made using the MS punch.  The sparkly snowflakes are by Jolee’s Boutique.  I added some MS Crystal fine glitter on the ice just for a touch of sparkly!

Hi and welcome to another two week challenge with Lacy Sunshine Stamps!  This time our theme is ‘Feature A Hat”.  So let’s see all those fabulous creations and don’t forget there must be a hat somewhere on your project.  You can use any stamp to enter our challenge but we would love to see some Lacy Sunshine Stamps and if you check Heather Valentin’s store you will find many lovely images to choose from that would fit our challenge perfectly!  I hope you can join us for our challenge.

For my card I used Rory’s Bag Of Candy Canes.  I colored the image with Copics.  I love all the Rory images.  I think it’s because of the cute face with just the one eye showing.  The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday paper pad.  I used a white liquid gel pen for the dots on her sweater and on the holly.  Thanks for stopping by!

This week I used another of the rubber stamps from the Candy Cane Kisses set.  I just love the little kitten sticking out of the mail box!  I colored the image with Copics and used white liquid applique and glitter for the snow and the icicles. The flowers were made with velllum and two MS flower punches with a white opal pearl for the middle.  The  leaves are a punch also from Martha Stewart.  Here’s a close-up of the flowers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To make the green pointed doily I used the Snowflake corner punch by MS.  The designer paper if by Doodlebug called ‘Home For The Holidays’.  I used the halloween ‘goo’ border punch to make the icicles.  I just cut the ends to points then added some glitter.  It worked out great!  Another close-up but this time it’s of the image.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I always use the liquid applique for snow because it gives it that snow drift effect.  I hope you can join us this week for another fun challenge with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!  Good luck!

Halloween!

It’s time for another Lacy Sunshine Stamp challenge, and the theme is Halloween!  So let’s see something scary or cute!  You can use any stamp for this two week challenge but we would love to see your creations using Lacy Sunshine Stamps!  You can find all sorts of gorgeous and creepy Halloween images here at the Lacy Sunshine store.  Happy shopping!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For my card I’ve used the brand new image called Rory's Witchy Fun.  I’ve colored the image with Copics and fussy cut her out and layered the image on black card stock.  I made the flowers using black and orange card stock.  I punched out 4 of each color using the 3/4 inch punch.  Then I separated the layers on each circle so that I had 8 layers for each flower.  There is a brad in the center to hold the flowers together.  Then you scrunch each layer and then reopen the layers to the size of the flower you want.  A very simple flower to create and I love how they look!  Other supplies used were; Spellbinder round dies, MS border and corner punch, Crafts ribbon, McGill branch punch, Memory Box Spider Web die, Doodlebug Halloween brads, Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pad and Stickles Black Diamond.

Have a wonderful week-end!  Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian neighbors!

For my card I used Vampire Queen from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  My image is colored with Copics and then I layered her on black card stock using a Spellbinder die.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp.  The flowers were made using a 3/4 inch round paper punch.  I used 4 circles per flower.  I then pulled apart each layer of paper, so that I would end up with 8 layers per flower.  The layers were attached together with a brad, then each layer was scrunched up and then reopened.  I really love the look of these homemade flowers.  Other supplies used were; Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pad, Memory box bat and spider web dies, MS Goo border punch, McGill branch punch, .Doodlebug brads and Stickles Stardust.
