Favorites from The Project Bin

 Today I promised you a few of my favorite cards from The Project Bin


I know, we are in Christmas mode but I loved coloring this beautiful image.  This was from the "Spring Zen" stamp set.


This was a beautiful valentine card I made using "In My Heart" stamp set.

For every dog lover these cuties were from the stamp set "Kinda Pawsome".

One thing The Project Bin is known for is their wonderful sentiments.  I made this card using the sentiment from "#bff"

And of course I had to show one of my Christmas cards using the stamp and die set "Merriest Christmas".  

I also love using the "Hand Made" stamp set on the back of my cards.  Sorry but I don't usually take pictures of the back of my cards but this is the stamp set below.



So head on over to The Project Bin and take advantage of the 50% off sale through Monday.  Just enter the code WOOHOO when checking out.

Challenge Your Stash

 I am always excited when I get to go to my stash and use something that I haven't used in a while.  Pansy is our hostess this month for our Challenge Your Stash Group in Splitcoaststampers.  Pansy decided our them would be leaves and leaving.  She challenged us with implied or direct action on leaves leaving or a scenic sort of leaves and something leaving.


So for my card I am using a stamp from Great Impressions.  I couldn't find a name on the stamp anywhere just a number.  The sentiment is from Dare2BeArtzy.  I loved the falling leaves and to me this is a sign of fall leaving us.

Thanks Pansy for a great challenge this month.

Also remember that The Project Bin is having their 50% off sale through Monday.

Check back tomorrow and I may list a few of my favorite stamp sets from The Project Bin and cards I have made using them.

PIP Challenge #2047

 Time again for another card for Pammies Inky Pinkies.  This week we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Sheep Ski Designs. The digital images they have are just adorable.  I am loving their Christmas images right now.  For my card today I decided to use the image "Christmas Bells".  

I colored the image with my copic markers and then used a MFT die to cut the image out.  This was such a fun image to color.  I hope you check out Sheep Ski Designs. I know that I have several of their digital images on my list to purchase.

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

The Project Bin

 November sure seems to be going by fast.  We are enjoying some wonderful fall weather this week and I am loving it.  Although my card for today reminds me of winter that will soon be here.  I am not a fan of snow but love snowmen images because they always look happy.  They just put a smile on your face.


I decided to go with a blue theme on my card for my project for The Project Bin this week.  I started with the blue snowflake paper and then added a white snowflake I had cut out using a Tim Holtz die.  The Let it Snow image is from "North Pole" by The Project Bin.  I stamped it with Versamark and then used white embossing powder. I then used a circle die to cut it out.

I  colored the sweet little snowman with my copic markers and then used the matching die from "Merriest Christmas" by The Project Bin.

Dueling Darlings

 Shelly and Carol were our hostesses this month and they decided the theme would be "Red Noses".  This meant I received a wonderful bag of goodies from Shelly.  I always think I have to use each piece in my kit which is why my card is loaded with goodies.  



The goodies in my bag that I had to play with were:

Images/Sentiments:  CC Designs Three Reindeers stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Recollections 110# Cardstock.

Designer Paper:  Recollections Buffalo Check and Echo Park Santa Paper.

Embellishments:  Recollections Hat and bow and ribbon from Offray.

I had so much fun coloring up these adorable reindeer.  Thanks Shelly and Carol for the great challenge this month.

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

 I was challenged by Vickie Y to use this adorable image in a group I am in with Splitcoaststampers.  I decided it would be perfect for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I always love a coffee image.


The image is "Changito Coffee".  Both the sentiment and image are from Stampendous.  I colored him with copic markers and then fussy cut him out.  I decided to use a coffee cup die (From Honey Bee Stamps) for the background.  The flower and leaves are from MFT.

Definitely some days are a 2 cup day.  I think today will be one of those because my cat got me up way too early.

PIP Challenge #2045

 Wow last week sure went by fast.  I have been busy creating and loving time spent in my craft room.  This week for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2045, it is sponsored by Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  I am such a huge fan of their digital stamps and always have so much fun coloring up their images.

For my card today I used the image "Christmas Jar" to make my card.

I do believe these are my favorite colors to use when coloring with my copic markers.  I printed off the image on my printer and then just started coloring up the image.  I even put some glossy accents on the candy canes although it doesn't show up very well.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I have decided to enter this card in the following challenges.:

Crafters of Faith

 My card today is for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers in a group where we do monthly challenges.  Vickie is our host this month and she chose the scripture "Nehemiah 9:6 You alone are the Lord; You have made heaven, The heaven of heavens, with all their host, The earth and everything on it, The seas and all that is in them, And you preserve them all.  The host of heaven worships you."  Vickie said anything goes in our card just use the scripture to inspire our cards.

I thought about the scripture and what stood out to be was "The seas" so I made an ocean card.  

I used the stamp set "Gill Friends" from My Favorite Things.  I first taped off a square in the center of the card and then used an ocean stencil with Distress Oxide ink.  I colored a few of the fish and fussy cut them out and pop dotted them on to my card.  

Fun challenge from Vickie.  Thanks for inspiring us to make a card.
