PIP Challenge #1841

Monday brings around Challenge #1841 for Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  This week is sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.
They will be offering a $15 prize code to a lucky winner so be sure and link up your creation over at PIP Challenges.
For my card I used the "Squirrel with Acorns" digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs. I colored this cute little guy with my copic markers and then added the acorn and leaf diecuts.  I hope you have tried their digital stamps.  They are such a bargain and you can size them easily and they can be stored in your computer.  How much easier does it get?

Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow because I have 2 cards I will be posting.

Happy Fall

Today I am sharing a card I made for a challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  Vickie was our hostess this month and she was able to choose the image.
The image is from a retired Stampin Up set called Sweet Seasons.  I colored the image with my copic markers and added the SU Leaf and used the SU punch for the sentiment on the side.

I know fall is just around the corner because I am seeing lots of pumpkins out and the trees have started to turn colors.  What a beautiful season.

Crafters of Faith

Today is reveal day for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers.  Liz is our hostess this month and she chose the scripture Luke 11:9 "Ask and it shall be given to you.  Seek and ye shall find.  Knock and it shall be opened onto you."  Liz challenged us to use a stamp or something that was given to us by someone.  Well I have some great friends that create with me and they are always giving me such wonderful things.

My friend Silvia gave me this adorable card stamp because she knows I have 2 cats.  I stamped the image off onto a 4 x 5 1/4" card base and colored it with my copic markers.   I had to color them to match my kitties.  The sentiment was from The Stamps of Life called fluffy cat pudgie4.  My sister gave me this set for my birthday and I thought it would be perfect for the card.

Thanks for the great challenge Liz.

Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #1839

Two weeks sure has flown by.  It is hard to believe that it is October 1st already.  We are still having warm weather so it doesn't really feel like fall yet.  Today brings us Challenge #1839 for Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  I am super excited about our challenge this week because it is sponsored by one of my all time favorite stamp companies "Newton's Nook Designs".  I guess I love their stamps so much because I am a cat lover and their cat stamps have such personality.

I decided to go a different route this week because I also love florals and I used Peony Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs for my card.
I just purchased the Altenew watercolor 36 Pan Set and I just love the colors in the set.  I am still working on my watercolor technique.  The scalloped designer paper is from Newton's Nook Designs "Frames & Flags Die".  I use it a lot because it makes such a beautiful border.  

I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and then used a clear embossing powder over the ink.  This gives the image a nice raised effect and is great when doing watercoloring.

Thanks to Newton's Nook Designs for being our sponsor this week.  Be sure and check out the rest of the Design Team beautiful creations at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  Join us with your creation on the blog because it is "Anything Goes" when you submit your design.

Challenge Your Stash

Today is reveal day for our "Challenge your Stash" group that I am in on Splitcoaststampers.  Our hostess this month was Barb and she challenged us to make a fall fancy fold card.

For my card I decided to use the "Foxes" stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I am such a fan of foxes so I thought this would be so cute for a fall card.  I colored the fox image and the wreath image with my copic markers.  I got my idea for the fold part of the card from "The Crafty Owl".  The Thank you circle is pop dotted on the card so the orange scalloped frame will tuck right behind it.

Below you will see a picture of the inside of the card.

Thanks Barb for a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #1837

Monday brings us challenge #1837 from Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  The sponsor this week is Sparkle N Sprinkle.  You should really check out some of their adorable digital stamps.  They are so much fun to color.  For my card I am using "Friendship Flowers".
I just love coloring flowers so this was the perfect digital stamp for me.  I printed the digital stamp off on my printer and then colored the image with my copic markers.  I then fussy cut out the image and pop dotted the Friendship sentiment over the watering can.  The sentiment on the bottom is also from that stamp set.

If you haven't tried digital stamps, now is the time because Sparkle N Sprinkle as such fun digital images to work with.  Sparkle N Sprinkle is giving away a $15 gift code to a lucky winner this week over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  So let's see your talents and as always "Anything Goes".

Dueling Darlings

I sure don't seem to get much posting done lately.  Time just goes so fast.

Today is revel day for our Dueling Darlings.  Suzy and Debby were our hostesses this month and they decided to pick Sunflowers for their theme.  We sure have been seeing a lot of Sunflowers here in Kansas but not a bummer crop because of the drought earlier in the year.

The stamp used is from Stampability called "Hammock Hibernations .  I just love this adorable bear.  I colored the image with my copic markers and decided not to add much else because the cute little image speaks for itself.

Thanks Debby for sending such an adorable kit.
