PIP Challenge #2113

 This week over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies, Challenge #2113 is an inspiration challenge.
Pam challenged us to be inspired by this photo and use what we see in the photo for our card this week.  When I looked at the photo I immediate noticed the rainbow, clouds and sheep.

For my card I used the "Woodland Spring" stamp set from Newton's Nook Designs.  It is one of my favorites with the adorable woodland animals.  For the rainbow I used the MFT cloud stencil and thought it would be fun to stencil in rainbow colors.  The white clouds are a set of 3 Stitched Cloud Die by Memory Box.  The grass is a Slimline Grassy Hills die by MFT.

They are offering a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Stamps to the winner of this weeks challenge so I hope to see you over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  Let's see what inspired you in the photo.

Challenge Your Stash

 Since today is the 28th (Where oh where did March go), that means it is the day to post my picture for our Challenge Your Stash Group on Splitcoaststampers.  Our hostess this month is Kelly and today is actually her birthday.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLY!

Kelly decided our challenge this month was to celebrate World Literacy Month.  Kelly asked us to create a card based on any book or book characters.  So I dug through all my stamps and found the perfect one.  I used Pretty Pink Posh School Friends for my card.


I stamped off the images from the set and colored them with my copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment on black paper and used versamark and white embossing powder.  I thought this made it look like a chalkboard.  

Thanks Kelly for the great challenge this month.

I have enjoyed pulling out all my coffee themed stamps and making cards for the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I can't believe how many people are participating in this hop.  I hope you check out all the great cards that have been made.


My card today you will notice that I used the paper from Coffee and Friends by Echo Park again.  I just love the different papers in this 6 x 6 pad.



The stamp I used is called mug hugs by Sunny Studio.  It is a fun set.  I stamped the images on the paper and fussy cut them out.  I pop dotted the heart on the 2 mugs.  

Thanks for stopping by.  I have more cards to make this weekend and hope to share soon.  Alot of creativity happening at my house.

For my card today I decided to use the stamp set "Newton Loves Coffee" from Newtons Nook Designs

For my card I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped several of the smaller images for the background.  I then colored the kitty peeking over the table and used a stitched circle die to cut it out.  The papers I used are from Carta Bella called Flower Garden.  I just love the soft colors in this particular paper design.

I also used the sketch challenge over at Inky Paws Challenge for my layout.

Classy Card Ladies

 This will be my second post for the day.  The 15th brings great things on my blog.  This card is for a group of 10 wonderful ladies on Splitcoaststampers that we now call ourselves the Classy Card Ladies. 

This month I was lucky enough to co-host with Barb.  We decided our theme this month would be butterflies.  They remind me of warmer weather and that spring is right around the corner.


This is the card that I made for our challenge this month.  The adorable mouse image and sentiment are both from Garden Mice by Newton's Nook.  The butterflies are from Beautiful Wings by Newton's Nook.  The pink doily is from doodlebug.  The ribbon is from Stampin up. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and be sure and check out what the other Classy Card Ladies did with our challenge this month.

PIP Challenge #2111

 What a busy week this has been.  I have not been posting much lately because I have been busy cleaning and organizing.  Today I will have 2 posts so be sure and check both out.

My first post today is my card for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2111.  We are so lucky to be sponsored by Jan's Digi Stamps.   I simply adore their stamps because they are so fun.  For my card today I am using the stamp Birthday Friends.  


This card reminds me of getting together with my friends to celebrate our birthdays.  You are never to old to celebrate your big day and there is nothing better than sharing that special day with friends.  I colored the image with my copic markers and decided to use a simple layout to highlight the adorable image.

I have decided to enter my card in the following challenges:

PIP Challenge #2109

 When I started posting this year I was determined to post more but things don't always work out like you think.

Today I am posting for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2109.  We are so lucky to be sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps today.  I hope you check out their website because they have some really fun stamp sets.  I was lucky enough to receive the Everyday Dragonflies Stamp Set.  I had several directions I wanted to go with this set but decided I would get my copics out and color the fun flowers on the dragon flies.

The sentiment that I used comes with the stamp set also.  I just stamped both dragonflies from the set using my Misti and was able to stamp the sentiment also with my Misti.

I used the MFT Stitched Mod Rectangle to cut out the image after stamping it.  I have had this die for a little but and really wanting to use it.  I love how each corner is curved on this die.  The background paper is Fresh Cut from Basic Grey.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you join us over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies because a lucky person will win a $20 Gift Code to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and who wouldn't like that.
