Challenge Your Stash

Today is reveal day for our "Challenge Your Stash" on Splitcoast Stampers.  Vickie was the hostess this month and decided our challenge should be something with a farm theme.  Well since I come from a farming community (in my past - currently a city gal) I loved the challenge.
I colored all my animals with my copic markers and then put it all together.  The animals are from a retired Two Paper Divas set called Farm Animals.  I miss that stamp company so much and refer to my collection of their stamps quite often.  I printed the sentiment on my computer because I didn't really have a good sentiment.

Inky Paws Challenge #79

Today I decided to make a fun card for a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  You were to use a third of your card.  Then for a little additional inspiration I noticed a fun challenge over at Newtons Nook that would work perfect for my card.
As you can see it is a color challenge.  I first taped off the 2 sides of my card with blue painters tape and then  I pulled out my distress oxides (Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber & Peacock Feathers) and just started blending.

After blending I peeled off the blue painters tape and realized it had stuck to the paper.  I should of used the purple tape.  So I just cut the strip out and glued to a piece of white cardstock.  I stamped the adorable image  from the Newton's Nook Stamp Set "Newton Loves Coffee".  I then colored the image with my copic markers, trying to match up the background colors.  I fussy cut the image out and pop dotted him on to the front of the card.  I stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins to the card.

Thanks to Newtons Nook for a great challenge and giving us a little inspiration to work with.

PIP Challenge #1833

Time again for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  This will be challenge #1833 and as always "Anything Goes".  The sponsor for our challenge this week is by Polkadoodles and boy do they have some adorable images.  I hope you check out their store because they have digital stamps and also clear stamps if you are interested.
For my card I decided to use their image "Winnie Wonderland Hat".  I started by picking out the designer paper and then coloring the image with my copic markers to match.  I am really happy with how bright and cheerful this turned out to be.

I hope you enter the challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  It is so much fun seeing all the great creations designed by you.

I decided to enter this card in the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge this week because the theme is "Anything Goes".

Unidentified Image Swap Round #39

Today is the due date for Round #39 of our Unidentified Image Swap.  Janet selected this image this month.
This adorable little guy is a retired Whipper Snapper image and who doesn't love Whipper Snapper images".  I colored the image with my copic markers and then added the anchor die that someone had cut out for me and given me.  Thought it worked well with the image.

Thanks Janet for a great image.

Dueling Darlings

Today is reveal day for the Dueling Darlings.  The hostesses this month were Terry L. and Tami.  They picked a great theme this month.  The theme is "wine".
The image is by Art Impressions called "Wine Divas".  The sentiment is from MFT called "Uncorked".  I colored this image with my copic markers and then put to a card layout.  The flowers are "Got Flowers" and I colored the white "Brides" flowers to coordinate with the paper with my copic markers.  The gems are from "The Paper Studio". 

Thanks to Terry and Tami for a great challenge this month.  I loved coloring up this adorable image.

Crafters of Faith

I think it is going to be a busy week on my blog.  I have been trying to finish a lot of my projects that are sitting on my desk.  Dawn is our hostess this month and she chose Psalm 119:105 for her scripture.  "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path".  She challenged us to use fireflies in our card.




I remember having these firefly stamps from Two Paper Divas who have since retired and are no longer in business.  I love pulling out some of their stamps because they are my favorites and I continue to use them.  The glass jar, lid and sentiment are also by Two Paper Divas.  I colored my little fireflies and then cut them out and placed in the jar and outside the jar. I thought the designer paper in the background worked well for a night sky.

Thanks to Dawn for a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #1831

Today is the start of Challenge #1831 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  The challenge this week is "Anything Goes" and is sponsored by Digital Delights.
For my card today I decided to use the stamp "Crayon Bee".  School is about ready to start in our area and I thought this would be the appropriate card for the season.  
I printed off the image on my printer and then colored this adorable image with my copic markers.  I hope to see your creations over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.
