Challenge Your Stash

Since today is the 28th, it means time for me to go through my stash and create something for our Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  Lola was our hostess this month and she asked that we use an elephant or a flamingo in our creation.

I chose to use a flamingo because I just love the colors of these beautiful birds.  We sure done see these in Kansas cut they are still popular.
This is actually an Art Play Paintable by Adornit called Let's Be Friends.  You get 12 adorable images and I chose to color up this one with my zig clean color watercolor markers.

Thanks for stopping by.

PIP Challenge #1825

Do you believe the 4th of July is right around the corner?  What happened to June?

Today is challenge #1825 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and our sponsor today is

For my card today I decided to go patriotic and celebrate the 4th of July.  I printed off the image "USA Myrtle the Turtle" and colored it with my copic markers.  

I then used an oval die and cut the image out.  By adding a few stars here and there I think it makes the perfect patriotic card.

Thanks for stopping by and remember that you can submit your project to Pammie's Inky Pinkies because Anything Goes and you could win a nice prize from Digital Delights.

Dueling Darlings

Since it's the 15th of the month, this means it is time for the Dueling Darlings Duel.  The hostesses this month are Shelly and Carol.  The theme is Everything is Coming Up Roses.

Since I am a Dazzler I received a kit from Shelly and her kit included:

Image and sentiment all SU (the rose is from the 2002 collection)
The three small SU sentiments are punched out using the SU tag punch
The DP's - the green and green w/peach roses- The Paper Studio Kirby Teesdale
Yellow and wood BG- The Paper Studio-Country Road
All ribbons and twine- retired SU
Small butterflies- Martha Stuart punch
Yellow gems- Recollections

I colored my image with copic markers and added a little sunray with distress oxide ink in the back of the roses. 

Shelly and Carol also asked us to share what our favorite color of roses is and I would have to say pink.

Crafters of Faith Challenge

Today is reveal day for our Crafters of Faith challenge over on Spitcoaststampers.  Joyce was our hostess this month and her scripture of choice was Psalm 118:5.  "I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts".
So my card is all about freedom.  I used a stampin up set called Happy Fourth.  I wish you could see more of the stamped background but I love the red & blue in this card.

Add a little humor

Today I decided to make a card for the Impression Obsession Challenge this week.  The challenge was to add humor to your card.

For my card I decided to use my new favorite stamp set from Impression Obsession called "Baby Giraffe".  This stamp set was designed by Dina Kowal.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at a retreat in April and I am amazed at her talent.  

So how you not smile seeing this adorable giraffe?  I just love the expression on his face.

I colored the image with my copic markers and decided not to add anything but the sentiment on the card.  I didn't want to take anything away from the image.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out all the great stamps in the Impression Obsession store.
