Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenge #1945

Today's challenge #1945 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  They have the largest digital store I have ever seen and such adorable images.
For my card today I decided to use the Funky Flower Blocks stamp.  I love working with digital stamps because you can make them any size.
I printed off the image on my printer and then colored the stamp with my copic markers.  I then cut them apart and put them on a black background.

ITD Creative Playground Challenge #11

Lately I have decided that I am liking digital stamps more and more all the time.  Especially when space becomes a problem at my house.  Where oh where to store all these fun stamps we have.  So for me digitals are the answer.

I am playing along with several of the challenges over on Splitcoaststampers for a couple of weeks.  Today one of the challenges was to make ice on our card.  I immediately thought of an igloo with blocks of ice and I found an adorable digital image at Imagine That Digital Stamps.  The stamp set I decided to use was Polar Fun.  What a bargain for only $5.  You get sentiments and several adorable images to color.
I printed off the images and colored them with my copic markers.  I then cut them out and came up with a card design.  The bottom of the card if glitter paper and the snowflake paper is from Carta Bella Snow Fun.

I decided to enter this card in ITD Challenge this month because I really liked how the card turned out.

Crafters of Faith

My card today is for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers.  Vickie is our hostess this month and she chose the scripture from Isaiah 64:8 "We are the clay, and you are out potter; we are all the work of your hand".  Our challenge was to create a card of project using any theme but to be sure and include some kind of non-paper embellishment.
I love this paper from Maja Designs called Denim and Girls.  So feminine and pretty.  I find myself using it a lot because I just love the colors.  The non-paper embellishments are the felt flower and square, button, twin and enamel dots.  Thanks Vickie for a great challenge.

The Project Bin

My card this week for The Project Bin shows my love of cats.  I guess that is why I have two of them.

The special this month at The Project Bin is if you order $75 worth of merchandise you receive Maybe Christmas for free.

Newtons Nook Inky Paws Challenge

Well Halloween is over and November is here.  Hard to believe.  Especially since here in Kansas we have already had snow.  I hope that is not a sign of what is to come this winter.

I decided to post one more Halloween card that I made for Inky Paws Challenge.  The challenge this week was to make a Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas card.

I love the stamp set Newton's Perfect Pumpkin so I made my last Halloween card for the year.
I colored the image with my copic markers and then fussy cut the image out.  The sentiment and spider on the background are also from that stamp set.

The Project Bin Kinda Pawsome

I have a fun card this week for The Project Bin.  My family has always been dog lovers.  Seems like we all have had one at one time or another.
For my card today I decided to use the stamp set "Kinda Pawsome".  I stamp the dog image and then did a little highlighting with my gray copic marker.  I made a tag using the Authentique "Companions" paper line.  The blue dog heart beat was a small square in the paper line.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the tag which is also from Kinda Pawsome line.

The Project Bin

I am still loving the adorable snowman from The Project Bin using Merriest Christmas stamp set so I decided to make another fun card with it today.
I thought it would be fun to make a shaker card and put the snowman to the side.  The image is colored with Altenew watercolors and then I used the matching die to cut the snowman out.  I added the snowflake die to the upper right hand side and ended up with an adorable shaker card.

The Project Bin Merriest Christmas

I decided to make another Christmas card for my card this week for The Project Bin using "Merriest Christmas" stamp set.  I am just loving that adorable snowman. 
I started my card by cutting out the top white cardstock piece with a Christmas tree die.  I then used a snow falling embossing folder.  I used some washi tape on the inside of the card before adhering the top piece to.  I then added the Christmas trees that are with the Merriest Christmas stamp set and pop dotted the snowman that I had colored with my copic markers.

Remember that if you purchase $75 of merchandise at The Project Bin you will receive the "Eat Pie" stamp set free.

Newtons Nook Challenge

I am beyond thrilled that my local scrapbooking store (Vintage in KC) is now selling Newton's Nook stamps.  They are absolutely the cutest stamps I have ever seen.  Every time they have a new release I think how in the world do they come up with such adorable images.

This is definitely fall colors which I love.  Nothing beats the colors of fall.

The Merriest by The Project Bin

This week for The Project Bin I have decided to think about Christmas cards.
For my card today I stamped off the snowman from "The Merriest" stamp set.  I then colored the image with my copic markers.  I used a show fall embossing folder for the background and then a Tim Holtz snowflake.  Very simple card but it has an elegance to it.

The stamp set also has the matching die cut which I used along with a tree die cut.  You will see that used in a future post.  You will see a lot of examples using this set this month because I am determined to have all my Christmas cards done early this year.

Challenge your stash

Today is reveal day for our "Challenge Your Stash" group at Splitcoaststampers.  Our hostess this month is Suzy and she challenged us to make a get well card or thinking of you card.


I decided to make this simple get well card.  I used a butterfly die and cut it out with white card stock.  I then colored it with my distress oxides.  The black butterfly frame was glued over the butterfly.  I punched a hole on the top part of my card base for the butterfly to slip through.  I then glued the center of the butterfly down on the inside of the card.  The butterfly slips through when you open the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Project Bin

I can't believe September is here which means fall is right around the corner with beautiful colors in our landscape and Pumpkin spice lattes.  So for my card this week for The Project Bin I used one of their fun fall stamp sets appropriately called "Pumpkin Spice". 
I took the pumpkin stamp and inked it up with pumpkin colored ink and then took a dauber to the wet stamp with a terra cotta color to give it a shaded look.  I then stamped the pumpkin several placed throughout my base. 

Surely this card will get you in the fall mood.

The Project Bin & Crafters of Faith

Today is a two for card.  I always submit a card or project for The Project Bin on Wednesdays and the Crafters of Faith group I am in with Splitcoaststampers falls on the 7th of each month.  Jen is our hostess this month for the Crafters of Faith group and she chose Revelation 21:2-3 for her scripture this month.  ("I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem, *coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, Behold, God's dwelling is with the human race.  He will dwell with them and they will be his people and God himself will always be with them as their God.")  Jen challenged us to use a city scape of landscape in our card.

I used the stamp set "Milky Way" from The Project Bin for my card.  I started out by sponging 3 different colors of distress ink on the background of my card.  From the stamp set I used the stars and white embossing powder.  I colored the image with copic markers and used the matching die to cut it out.  The city scape is a die I used from Sizzix.  I also used white embossing powder for the sentiment.  I cut a piece of yellow cardstock for a little light coming from the flying saucer.

Thanks Jen for a great challenge this month.

The Project Bin

Time again for another project for The Project Bin.  It seems like I never have enough birthday cards so I decided to make a birthday card this week using the stamp set "#bff". 
I added water to my stampin up ink and splattered it on my white piece of cardstock.  I then cut out 3/4" strips of pink and blue papers and made pennants out of them.  I stamped the beautiful sentiment and used an oval die to cut it out.  I then used a scalloped oval die to gut the green check paper out.  By adding a few flowers and sequins, it turned out to be a beautiful card.

Remember this month you can get the Cool Ghoul stamp and die set free ($18 value) with any $80 order over at The Project Bin.
