PIP Challenge #1811

Today our challenge #1811 at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges is sponsored by
Their digital stamps have such personality and it is always hard for me to select which digital image I want to use because I love them all.  I decided to use the Honey Bees Digital Stamp.
I printed off the digital image on my computer printer on Neenah Classic Solar White paper.  I then colored it with my copic markers.  I used the Cottage Cutz Wacky Stitched Rectangle Die for both the image and the sentiment.

Be sure and link up your card to our challenge this week because you could win a $15 Gift Card from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  As always anything goes in the Challenge.  Just link up your challenge to Pammie's Inky Pinkies.

Mystery Image Swap

Today is the due date for a Mystery Image Swap Group that I am in over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This month Barb chose our adorable image.
The image is from Whipper Snapper called "Take the Cake".  I added a Happy Birthday embossing folder for my background and colored the image with my copic markers.  So much fun.

I seem to always gravitate towards florals so this was a different image for me.  I loved it but then I love all Whipper Snapper stamps.

Have a great day@

Dueling Darlings

The 15th of the month brings us the Dueling Darling Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  This month Donna and Judy were the hostesses.  Since I am in the Dazzler group, Donna sent me a wonderful kit.
The image Donna chose was My Favorite Things Happy Hippos.  What a fun image to color.  She also included in the kit the Happy Birthday Circle Frame from MFT.  I think I am going to have to buy this because I think it is just adorable.  The paper is from the Paper Studio and then some fun embellishments that I was able to use.

Thanks Donna for a great challenge.

Newtons Nook

I was one of the hostesses for our image swap over on Splitcoaststampers with Kelly this month.  We talked and decided that our theme would be umbrellas.  I had this adorable stamp called "Newton's Rainy Day" by Newtons Nook and I contacted them to see if I could use this for my image this month.  Well they are just the nicest people over at Newtons Nook and they said yes.
After coloring this adorable image with my copic markers I decided to use the card sketch over at the Inky Paws Challenge Blog.  

Be sure and check out the other creations by our team at Splitcoaststampers.

Crafters of Faith Challenge

I must say that March 7 really came around quickly and I realized yesterday I didn't have my card for the Crafters of Faith challenge even started.  I looked at the challenge that Shelly the hostess gave us.  She chose John 19:28-30 which states "After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said, "I thirst".  A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth.  When Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished", and bowed his head and gave up his spirit."  Shelly asked that we make a project using a cross on our card and to use purple somewhere on the card.

For my card I found this beautiful stamp in my Two Paper Divas treasure trove.  I am still sad that they are no longer in business because they had the most beautiful stamps you will find.  The stamp set was called "Rejoice".  I stamped the image using MFT Extreme black and then cut out the design with MFT Cross Stitch Die.  The sentiment was stamped using the same ink and then I just used a corner rounder on the corners.

Thanks to Shelly for a great challenge.

Challenge Your Stash

Today is reveal day for a group I am in on Splitcoaststampers.  I am the hostess this month and got to choose the challenge.  Well for me it was easy because I love hearts so I challenged everyone to have a heart somewhere on their card.   I forgot to take a picture of the card I wanted to use to I quickly made a clean and simple card that has hearts on it.
I just cut out a heart on the front of the card with my Stampin Up Heart Punch and then used a small Spellbinders Scalloped heart die for the center.

This was what I intended as my challenge card but at least I have a valentine's card ready for next year.
