Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #61

I recently came upon Sugar Pea Designs and I am in love with their stamps.  Just so adorable.  I decided to enter one of my recent cards in their Mix It Up Challenge #61.  For their challenge you could use the color inspiration below of the sketch challenge below.
For my card I used the Here Comes Santa Claus stamp set.  The stamp set uses several santas in their set.
I colored the santa with my copic markers and added some stickles around his hat and cuffs on his suit.  If I was Santa, I would be eating a cookie also.  I just love my cookies.

Be sure and check out Sugar Pea Designs.  They are having a fantastic sale right now.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends out there in blogland.  Today my card fits in perfect with being Thankful on this holiday.  I am the hostess this month for our Create from our Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  I decided my theme was to make a Thank You card.

I recently attended a card class at a friend of mine and we made this adorable Thank You card.
The card opens in the center and only half of the front piece is adhered to the base.  We stenciled the trees first and then adhered the owl piece to the left half of the card.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

PIP Challenge #1947

Today I am posting a card for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #1947.  This week we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Star Stampz.
She has some adorable images in her etsy shop.  For my card I decided to use the "Christmas Elf Ornament" digital stamp.
I had so much fun coloring this adorable image with my copic markers.  The designer paper I used for the background is called Christmas Stories by Mintay.  It just made the image pop.

Thanks to Star Stampz for sponsoring us this week.

The Project Bin

Today I decided to show another fun card I made for The Project Bin using the Feline Good stamp set.
I decided to go with a gray theme for this card so I used a paw print embossing folder for the dark gray cardstock and colored the kitty with my copic markers. A red bow and a paw print charm set off this card.

For the month of November if you order $75 of merchandise, you will receive the Maybe Christmas Stamp Set for free.  What a deal!

Dueling Darlings

Today is the 15th and that means it is time for our Dueling Darlings challenge.  Heather and Beth were our hostesses this month.  I am in the Dazzler group and Beth sent us an adorable Hero Arts Owl image.
 I colored the fun image with my copic markers and then had my Brother Scan n cut outline the image and cut it out.  I know these are bright colors for an owl but I wanted to match the papers  called Spring Stack II by DCWV.  The twine is by Celebrate it.  The enamel dots are by doodlebug.
Beth even sent us these adorable Made By stamps.  I love using them on the back of my cards.  If you want to see what some of the other Dazzlers did with their image you can click on their name below.

The Project Bin

I have another fun card this week for The Project Bin.   As I look out my window at snow on the ground I decided I wanted to do a bright sunny card.

I found some papers I had in my stash from Mintay called Marina and thought this would be perfect using the Anchors Away stamp set.  I stamped the image on the pink paper and fussy cut it out.  I added a navy cardstock paper to highlight the sentiment.  What a fun card and easy to make.

The November special this month for The Project Bin is that if you order $75 of merchandise you will receive the Maybe Christmas stamp set for free.

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. 

Thanks to Bugaboo Digi Stamps for sponsoring us this week and if you get a chance be sure and check out some of their adorable stamps.

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 is 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.

I used the stamp set and matching die called Feline Good.  I stamped off several of the cats and cut them out with the matching dies. I stenciled some clouds for the background and added a little sunshine and clouds in my card.

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.
