PIP Challenge #2407

 This weeks challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges is sponsored by Varada Sharma.  

                                                                                                                              


I love their stamps.  They have so many beautiful florals and I love coloring them.  For my card today I used the image "Daisies and Bleeding Hearts".  I love Bleeding Hearts and I am always amazed at how beautiful they are.  
I added the Happy Birthday from  a stamp set I had at home.  

I hope you enjoyed the card.  Be sure and check out all the beautiful stamps VaradaSharma has in their etsy store.

Creative Crew

 Today is reveal day for our Creative Crew on Splitcoaststampers.  Jeanette was our hostess this month and she came up with the theme "Birthday".  What a fun theme and we all need birthday cards.

The image is Nice One! by Penny Black.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday Lots of Sentiments.
I colored the image with my copic markers and fussy cut the image out.  The papers are from DCWV and Paper Studio All Season 3.  Such a fun card to put together.

You can see what the rest of the team came up with by clicking on their name below.

PIP Challenge #2405

 This weeks challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by Lawn Fawn.  I am such a fan of theirs with all the cute stamps that you can put together.



For my card today I pulled out one of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamps which was Lawn Fawn Berry Special.  There is always so much you can do with these stamps.


I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Blank Ink on Neenah Classic Crest Paper.  I then colored the images with my copics markers and cut then out with the matching dies.  I did a faint cloud background using the MFT Mini Cloud stencil.  The sentiment is from the Berry Special stamp set also.

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

Crafty Animals Challenge #80 - Use an animal

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge - Anything Goes

Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes

PIP Challenge #2403

 Today brings a new challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges.  This weeks challenge is sponsored by Penguin Palace which is a new sponsor for PIP Challenges.

I had a hard time deciding which of their adorable digital stamps to use for my card today.  I finally decided to use "Happy Easter".  I figured it was never too early to start on my easter cards.  
I colored the image with my copic markers and then fussy cut the image and sentiment out.  I used a scallop oval die to cut the pink paper out of.  The  background paper was from scraps that I had in my stash.

Be sure and check out Penguin Palace and see their adorable inventory of digital stamps.

Creative Crew

 Today I am posting a card I made for our Creative Crew group on Splitcoaststampers.  Barb is our hostess this month and her theme is "Snowmen" which seems to be quite appropriate since I look out the window and see about 5 inches of snow.


The image Barb chose is by Penny Black from the Frosty Flakes stamp set.  The patterned paper is from Echo Park called Winter Magic.  I colored the image with my copic markers and added some stickles to the snow on the image.  The Merry and Bright sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

You can see what the rest of the team did with the image by clicking on their name below.

PIP Challenge #2401

 Happy 2024!  I hope this year will bring you all good health and happiness.  We start up another challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges.  We start 2024 out with a great sponsor for our  #2401 Challenge which is Gerda Steiner Designs.

They have adorable stamps that can be used for different occasions.  I decided to use the Watermelon Dinosaur for my card today.
He was such a fun little guy to color with my copic markers.  This little dinosaur has such personality.  I then went to my stash and decided to make this a birthday card which I never seem to have enough of.  I then used a crossstitch square die around the image and another die to cut the green paper out with.  This die is an Echo Park Nesting Label #5 that I have had forever.  I cut it in half and put half at the top and half at the bottom of the image.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges this week.

Inky Paws Challenge

 I am still making a few Christmas cards.  I never seem to have enough.  I went to Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge for Inspiration.  I found some stamps I have been wanting to use and came across the Holiday Haul set.

I just love this truck design.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then used the matching die to cut it out.  The sentiment is also from that stamp set.  The designer paper is called Christmas Time from Newtons Nook.

The challenge this week at Inky Paws challenge was a sketch challenge.  Below is the sketch they provided.  
I always love a sketch challenge and seeing what I can come up with.  Thanks to Newton's Nook for always providing us with inspiration and challenging us to come up with a fun design.
