PIP Challenge #1937

Time for another challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  Challenge #1937 is being sponsored by Polkadoodles.
For my card today I was able to use an adorable image from Polkadoodles.  For the first time I even printed off their designer paper.  What fun.
I printed off the paper first and then cut it to fit my layout.  I colored the image with my copic markers.  Thanks for polkadoodles for sponsoring our challenge this week.

Dueling Darlings

Time for our duel from the Dueling Darlings on Splitcoaststampers.  This month our hostesses are Judy & Donna.  Donna sent us a wonderful challenge which was to celebrate Baby Safety month so it's all about babies this month.
The image used for my card today is called Wee Tees by Gina K Designs.  Unfortunately it is a retired set but it is just adorable.  I colored the cute little onesie with my copic markers.  The designer paper is from Paper Studio.  The embellishments are also by the Paper Studio.

What a fun thing to celebrate this month.  Thanks Donna and Judy for a great challenge.

The Project Bin

I can't believe September is here which means fall is right around the corner with beautiful colors in our landscape and Pumpkin spice lattes.  So for my card this week for The Project Bin I used one of their fun fall stamp sets appropriately called "Pumpkin Spice". 
I took the pumpkin stamp and inked it up with pumpkin colored ink and then took a dauber to the wet stamp with a terra cotta color to give it a shaded look.  I then stamped the pumpkin several placed throughout my base. 

Surely this card will get you in the fall mood. 

Remember if you order $65 worth of merchandise from The Project Bin this month you will receive the Keepsake stamp set for free.

Crafters of Faith

Today is the 7th of September which means time for our Crafters of Faith challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  Our host this month is Jeanette.  The scripture Jeanette chose was John 1:3 "All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.  Jeanette's challenge was to include something on our card that we are thankful that God created. 

I am thankful for the beautiful landscapes that God provides which includes all the gorgeous flowers you see around.  I know fall is around the corner and we have beautiful fall colors to look forward to.  This is a watercolor card that I used Altenew watercolors on.  Great challenge Jeanette.

PIP Challenge #1935

This weeks challenge (#1935) over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.
For my card today I am using the Racoon Digital Stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs.  
I printed off the digital image and colored it with my copic markers.  What I loved about this particular stamp was that you could add any sentiment on the racoon's board.

Be sure and check out the rest of the designs team on Pammie's Inky Pinkies and see what they did with this adorable digital image.

SCS CYS and The Project Bin

Today's card is a double challenge.  Wednesday is my day for posting for The Project Bin and the 28th is when we have a challenge on Splitcoaststampers in our Create from your Stash group.  Kelly was our hostess this month for the SCS challenge and she challenged us to use a stencil in our creation.
For my card I used "Birthday Girl" by The Project Bin.  I stenciled the background using a Taylored Expression Splash stencil.  I used 3 different colors of distress oxide ink.  (Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon).  

I love how a stenciled background can make such a beautiful piece of paper.

Remember that if you order $80 of merchandise over at The Project Bin in August you will receive The Cool Ghoul stamp and die set free.
