Challenge Your Stash

 Today is reveal day for our Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  Sue was our hostess this month and she challenged us to make a masculine card.  


My great nephews birthday is November 1 so I decided to make him a birthday card.  He is an avid baseball player so I had purchased this image on canvas a while back thinking I would do something with it.  I took the canvas off the cardboard and cut it down to a 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 size.  I then colored the image with my copic markers.  I added the number 32 because that is his number on all his teams.  (It was his mommas number when she played so a tribute to her).  I also added the Happy Birthday on the front.

This was a fun card to make and a little out of the ordinary but I'm sure he will like it.  He will definitely like the cash inside.

PIP Challenge #2143

 Time again for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  We are doing Challenge #2143 and it is being sponsored by Beccy's Place.  


You find find some adorable digital images at her store.  Be sure and check it out. 

For my card today I decided to use the Merle Digital Stamp from Beccy's Place.  I have a friend who loves Giraffes so I thought I would get a jump on my Christmas cards and make her a card.


I colored the image with my copic markers and even used some glossy accents on the lights.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I used the stitched mini slim stacklet from Taylored Expressions to cut out the giraffe.  I then used the petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklet for the red part of the card.

I am loving the mini slimline cards.  So easy to make.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out what the other members of the design team have done for our challenge this week.

Classy Card Ladies

 Is it really October?  Can't believe this month is just flying by.  Since today is the 15th, this means time for our Classy Card Ladies Challenge.  LJ and Darlene are our hostesses this month and they came up with a wonderful challenge.  The challenge was to use Snarky or Humorous sentiments for our card.



The sentiments are from Neat and Tangled.  I decided to add a dog from Newtons Nook to my card and then I found a free digital image of a fire hydrant.  The paper is by Lawn Fawn called Really Rainbow.  

Such a fun challenge.  Be sure and check out all the other Classy Card Ladies and see what they came up with for the challenge this month.

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 #2141

 Happy Monday!  Today our Challenge #2141 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by SheepSki Designs.  

It is a bit cooler here in Kansas today so I decided to make a halloween card for  my card this week.  I am using the adorable image from SheepSki Designs called Vlad and Mia.  


I colored the image with my copic markers and used a circle die from Pink and Fresh to cut it out with.  I added the cobweb die cut at the bottom to add a little interest.  And the sequins were just the final touch.

I hope you liked my card today.  Be sure and check out SheepSki Designs because they have some adorable halloween digital cards.
