Challenge Your Stash

 Since today is the 28th, this means that it is time for our Challenge your Stash challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  Vickie is our host this month and she came up with a very appropriate challenge for us this month.  Since October is the month when pink is seen everywhere with thousands of people participating in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Vickie is challenging us to use the color pink in our creation.


I used the stamp set "Newton's Support" from Newton's Nook designs for my card.  The paper is is from Authentique called Flawless.

Great challenge Vickie.

PIP Challenge #2041

 The weather sure has taken a change here in Kansas.  What a crazy week with 85 one day and 45 the next.  They are even calling for snow this week.  Guess we will get every season in 7 days.  I am still loving the fall colors.  I am always amazed at the color the trees are.  I think on my bucket list would be to go to the east and see real colors.

Today for Pammie's Inky Pinkies we are being sponsored by Star Stampz.  I decided to use the stamp "Sunflower Smiles" for my card this week since the Sunflower is our state flower.  They are also so much fun for me to color.

I colored the image with my copic markers and then used a wonky rectangle die to cut it out.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the Star Stampz site because she has some adorable images.  Since I love to color, these are fun images for me.

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

The Project Bin

 I am loving all the fall colors when I go for my daily walks.  This is my favorite time of the year.  Such gorgeous colors.  Today I chose to go with that theme in making my card for The Project Bin.

I used the stamp set "Pumpkin Spice" for the sentiment and the pumpkin.  I love layering up the pumpkin with different colors of ink.  I like a yellow for the center and then orange around the edges.  I stamped the sentiment with dark brown ink and used Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges.  

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

Dueling Darlings

 Time for our Dueling Darlings challenge today.  LJ and Terry S were our hostesses this month and they chose a fun theme of halloween.  Gnomes are all the rage right now so Terry sent us images from Photoplay called "Gnome For the Holidays Halloween".  I had so much fun coloring up these adorable halloween images.

The images were stamped on Neenah Classic Crest super smooth white paper with Memento Tuxedo Black which is my favorite ink to use when coloring with copics. 

The designer paper is also from Photoplay.  The enamel dots are from Gina Marie and the ribbons are from The Ribbon Boutique.

Thanks Terry and LJ for a great challenge this month.

PIP Challenge #2041

 Another week begins and I have another card I made for Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge #2041.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies which is Newton's Nook Designs.  I love this stamp company because of the adorable cat stamps and other adorable stamps they have.

For my card today I used the stamp set "Harvest Tails" which is one of my favorite fall stamps that I find myself using every fall season.  I recently bought some new coloring pencils by Arteza and decided to give them a try in coloring my image.  They blend so nicely and I really like the finished product.  The designer paper I used was from LDRS Happy Fall.  

I hope to see your projects over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and be sure and check out Newton's Nook Designs.

Crafters of Faith

 Yesterday was our reveal day for our Crafters of Faith group but I wanted to used my project for The Project Bin so I thought I would post it today.

Kelly is our hostess this month and she chose Isaiah 34:2 as our scripture for the month of October.  It reads "When you go through deep waters, I will be with you".  Kelly challenged us to create a card that shows your Deep Blue - the ocean, the sea or anything using blue as a predominant color.

I don't really have alot of ocean themed stamps so I went with the color blue as predominant.

I used several colors of blue oxide and colored heavily on my white cardstock.  I then used white embossing powder on the flowers and then did watercolor to bring out the layers of color.  I added the happy birthday in the center of the card.

Thanks Kelly for a great challenge.

The Project Bin

 It is beginning to feel like fall here in Kansas.  I am enjoying the cooler temperatures and the gorgeous colors of the trees.  

For my project this week I decided to make a treat box for The Project Bin using the stamp set "Pumpkin Spice". 

The box is a diecut from Lawn Fawn.  I assembled the box and then stamped a pumpkin from the stamp set and the spice container.  I stamped the pumpkin with yellow ink first and focused on the center.  I then used an orange ink to go around the edges.  I used a small circle die for the background and added the elements to the front of the box.

I am planning on filling the box with a Homemade Pumpkin Spice mix that you can find HERE.  I thought this would make a nice little fall gift.
