Challenge Your Stash

 Today is reveal day for our Challenge Your Stash group over on Splitcoaststampers.  This is always so much fun and I look forward to see what our hostess challenges us with every month.  Jeanette is our hostess this month.  If you click on her name, it will take you to her blog which you should check out.  She always has the greatest posts.  

So Jeanette's challenge for us this month was to make something that begins with the letter S.


So for my project I used:

Sack - for base of project

Stencil - Grass at the base of my card

Sponges - to do the background with distress ink

Scarecrow - For my one of my images

Sequins - to decorate the page.

Sentiment - Hello Autumn

Salmon colored ribbon - For the bow - I know this is a stretch.  LOL!

I have been told that I am an overachiever and I guess I kind of went overboard on this challenge.  But it was so much fun.  I had originally thought that I would make a card with a scarecrow on it but then I got carried away.

The stamp set I used was Your Next Stamp "Autumn Harvest" which is one of my favorite fall stamp sets.  It is just so much fun to color.  Below is a closeup of the adorable images I used.

Thanks Jeanette for such a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #2139

 

Time for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  Challenge #2139 is being sponsored by Polkadoodles.  You will see some of the cutest images when you go to their website. 

                                     

For my card today I am using the adorable stamp "Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Hello".  It is such an adorable digital stamp to color.  I printed it off my computer and then colored the image with my copic markers.

The green background paper is actually a download from Polkadoodles also.  I think it is amazing you can even print digital paper.  This was such a fun card to color.  I just had to add the sentiment on the bottom of the card.  It is from Stampin Up Pretty Kitty Stamp Set.

Thanks to Polkadooles for being our sponsor this week.

Inky Paws Challenge

 Today I decided to take a little break from sewing and make a halloween card.  I noticed that Newtons Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge this week was Halloween as a theme.  I always love making halloween cards.

For my card today I used the stamp set Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp set.  I love this set because it has so many things to use on the set.  I used a cloud stencil for my background and a grass die for the bottom of my card.  I then stamped the bat & eek! images over the card.  I colored the images with copic markers and cut them out.  My black moon has the cobweb and spider stamp from the same stamp set.  The possibilities are endless with this set.

Mystery Image #66

 I made today's card for a Mystery Image Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  Carol was our hostess this month and she came up with an adorable image to challenge us with.


The image is called "Mimi" by Taylored Expressions.  I thought it was adorable but my carded needed something a little extra so I added the dog house which is from the Happy Tails stamp set by Stampin Up.

Thanks Carol for a great challenge this month.

Classy Card Ladies

 Today is September 15th and that means it is time for our Classy Card Ladies Challenge.  I am lucky enough to have Barb as my partner and we love to come up with ideas for challenges.  September was our month to hostess so we decided to have as our challenge "Pumpkins" because fall is just around the corner and all my favorite coffee houses have started selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  

The items I used on my card are as follows:
Stamped Image Pumpkin Latte by Newtons Nook Designs
Prima Pumpkin & Spice Designer Paper
Prima Pumpkin & Spice Crystals
Memory Box Stitched Farm Pumpkin Dies
Twine
Buttons

I colored the image with my copic markers and pop dotted it on to my card.  I hope you enjoyed my card.  You can see what the rest of the Classy Card Ladies did with our challenge by clicking on their names below.

PIP Challenge #2137

 Today's challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies  does not have a sponsor but the winner of this challenge will win a $5 Gift Certificate from Mo's Digital Pencil donated by Pam.  After cleaning out my craft room this week, I have decided that Digital stamps are the way to go.  A lot less storage issue and they have so many darling images.

I did not have time to color one of Mo's Digital Pencil darling images so I decided to use a card I made for our Monthly Image Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  Patti was our hostess this month and she chose the image and sentiments from Stampin Up "Back On Your Feet".  It seems like we all know someone who is going through a rough patch and could use a card of encouragement.


I used an embossing folder for the background that looks like the turtle shell to me.  I colored the image with my copic markers and used SU circle dies to cut the image out.  I added a few gold sequins and wrapped twine around the sentiment on the bottom.

Thanks for checking out my card and I hope to see your entries over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.



PIP Challenge #2225
