Today's challenge over at Meljen's Designs is a sketch challenge. 
This is the sketch that we were asked to create with.  I decided to go along with my Christmas theme.  I am determined to have my Christmas cards done early this year.
The image I used was the Cozy Little Chickadees which are just so adorable.  Melissa has added some new images to her shop  so be sure and check her site out.

Two Paper Divas Fall Card

Another Friday comes around and I find myself making another Fall card.  The colors are beautiful outside right now and it just gets me in the mood to make fall cards.  For my card today I chose to focus on the Two Paper Diva stamp called Autumn Word Block.
I stamped the image on craft color paper and then colored in to leaf, pumpkin and acorn with my copic markers.  I also stamped a couple pumpkins from Two Paper Divas Fall is in the Air Stamp Set.

Have some fun, think fall and check out Two Paper Divas blog.  They have some fantastic ideas and fun crafty projects.

DT Day with Tracie

I am posting a fun project today for my design team day for Meljen's Designs.  It is hard to believe it is October already.  Halloween will be here before you know it.  I decided to make a fun little treat package that holds a regular size Tootsie Pop.  I started with a piece of designer paper and cut it 2 1/4" x 7 3/4".  I then scored the paper at 1 3/4", 4 1/4", and 5 1/4".  On the 1 3/4" line I punched a hole in the center and put the Tootsie pop through the hole.   I then folded over the 1 3/4" piece over the edge of the longer size and secured it in place.
I colored the adorable stamp with my copic markers called "Little Witch Mouse" that can be found in Meljens store.  I love these digital images because you can size them any which way to fit your project..  After coloring the image, I cut it out using a die cut and sponged around the edge with ink.  To finish the project I added a button and ribbon to give it an extra splash.


I hope you enjoyed my project today.  It was fun to show that there is great potential with digital stamps and you can make all kinds of things.

Two Paper Divas

I just can't believe September is over.  What happened to that month?  It went by so fast.  I can't believe I am thinking Halloween cards already but Two Paper Divas have come out with some new adorable stamps that are perfect for Halloween.  I love this stamp called Haunted House

To make this card I started out with a piece of whisper white stampin up paper and then cut out using a die.  I then used a brayer with yellow and then orange ink.  I sponged the bottom with black ink.  I then colored in the house with my copic markers.  To get the moon look, I punched out a 1 1/4 inch circle of post it note paper and stuck it there while I brayered the orange.  I then stamped the image matching up where the moon would be.  The Happy Halloween sentiment is from the stamp set called Mason Jar Access #2.

Be sure and check out Two Paper Divas.  It seems that they are adding adorable stamps all the time.

I hope you took advantage of the sale over at Meljen's Designs in September.  These are just the most adorable images.  So much fun to color with my copics. 

Hope you enjoy the card and join us in this challenge if you can.

Two Paper Divas

Another fun card for Two Paper Divas.  I am having lots of fun with their new candy jar stamp set.  It is so versatile and you can do so much with it.  I decided to use the gummies from the Candy #1 stamp set.  The sentiment was from Mason Jars Access #2.  It is amazing what you can do with these stamps.  You must give them a try because they are of the highest quality and you get such a great stamp every time.

Two Paper Divas

Have you been over to Two Paper Divas lately?  They have some adorable new clear stamps.  Today's card is made with my favorite candy.  Who doesn't love red licorice? 
I used their new Candy Jar stamp and their Candy #1 Stamp to make this card.  I stamped the jar on the red plaid paper and cut it out and put it on the top.  I thought this made for a fun card.
