PIP Challenge #2225

 This week Pammie's Inky Pinkies is giving away a MFT  $10 Gift card.  Who wouldn't want a gift card from My Favorite Things

                                         

The design team was told them could use anything for the challenge this week so I went to one of my favorite My Favorite Things stamp set.  It is called Spread Your Wings.  

I started my card my using a Tim Holtz Burlap stencil and used Distress Oxides in Salvaged Patina, Saltwater Taffy and Squeezed Lemonade.  I colored the butterflies with my copic markers and fussy cut them out and pop dotted them on to my card.  I used several colors of the Pretty Pink Posh gems to make the card pop.

I hope to see some wonderful creations this week at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.

Dueling Darlings

 I am so excited to post my card today for our Dueling Darlings challenge.  Jeanette is our hostess this month and came up with a challenge of "Women of Strength".  Jeanette sent an envelope just full of goodies.   As a little side challenge, we are honoring Kelly who is our fearless leader of this group and a definite woman of strength.  I met Kelly through Splitcoaststampers and she is just one of those people you instantly love.  She makes you feel that you are special and encourages you in every way.  Kelly has had alot of struggles in the years that I have known her.  Through all her struggles her faith remains important to her and shows what a true Christian is.  She is the worlds best grandma, mother and friend to all that she meets.  I have no idea where she finds the time but she is always posting fun videos on her You Tube channel called Kelly Santi Designs.  She also maintains a blog called Sandcastle Stamper that is just amazing.  

So my card today is honor of my dear friend Kelly who loves the color green, is a true friend and shares my passion of coffee.  


I colored the images with the color green in mind with my copic markers.  For my card I used Hello Bluebird "Frosty Mornings" stamped image.  The sentiment on the outside of the card is Simon Says/Pink Fresh "Next Level Amazing".  The sentiment inside the card is from Great Impressions called "Only as strong".  

You will see other items on my card that I used:
Designer Paper - Moxxie Coffee Addict, Paper Studio Cozy Little Christmas, Recollections Stocking Stuffer Paper Pad
Ribbons - Ribbon Boutique
Embellishments - Paper Studio Glitter Enamel Dots and Wooden Coffee Cup, Taylored Expressions Gold Drip Drops , button, corner photo tab and a few sequins.  

Be sure and check out what the rest of the teams have posted today.

 Welcome to Pammie's Imky Pinkies Challenge #2223.  This week were are being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.  

For my card this week I am using the digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs called "Dog and Butterfly"
I had so much fun with this adorable image.  I first printed it on my printer and then colored it with my copic markers.  I added the stitched sun die (Lil Inkers Designs - out of business) and swirl stitched cloud die (Memory Box) at the top of my card to give it a little more interest.  The blue paper I used the Cloudy Skies Piercing Plate by Taylored Expressions.

I hope you check out Gerda Steiner Designs.  They have some adorable digital stamps and clear stamps.

PIP Challenge #2221

 Today Challenge #2221 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by Sheepski Designs. 

I had so much fun with the image that I got to play with for this challenge.  I am such a fan of bees and coloring them which is a surprise to me since I got stung by a bumblebee at a young age in the face and still cringe when one gets too close to  me.  But I do understand the important of bees to our environment.  

The image I used for my card is called "Bumble Bee Blossom".  I printed the image on my printer and colored it with my copic markers.  The die I used is by Hero Arts and is called Honeycomb Fancy Die.   I love this die and find that it is the perfect die to highlight your image.  The papers are from Graphic 45 "Let It Bee" collection.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

PIP Challenge #2219

 Spring is here in the Midwest although this week feels more like summer.  Typical up and down weather.  I am enjoying all the beautiful flowers blooming right now so today's challenge is a little more reminder of the beauty around us.  Today over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies we are being sponsored by Jan's Digi Stamps.

                                        

For my card today I am using the digital stamp from the stamp set  "Spring Tiger Lilies".  

I printed off the image on my computer and then colored it with my copic markers.  I used paper from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I used a Lawn Fawn border die for the blue top and added 3 enamel dots at the bottom of the card.

What a beautiful stamp set this is.  So reasonable also.  Be sure and check out all the beautiful digital stamps in Jan's store.

Newtons Nook Birthday Theme

 I am in need of birthday cards in my stash so I decided to go to my favorite stamp company "Newtons Nook" and see what their Inky Paws Challenge is this week.  Lucky for me it is a birthday challenge.

So I went to my Newtons Nook inventory and found this adorable stamp set called "Newtons Birthday Balloons".

I stamped the image off and colored the images with my copic markers.  They also have matching Die set to go with this stamp set.  The background papers are by Doodlebug called Hey Cupcake.  I love the pink colors.  For the background frames and flag with sentiment,  I used Newtons Nook Frames & Flags Die set.  I cut the images out and pop dotted them on to the front of the card.

Such a fun birthday card to make.
