PIP Challenge #2235

 Since this is the last Monday of the month, Pammie's Inky Pinkies has a theme challenge this week which is use a Bird.  The winner this week will win a $10 gift card from Power Poppy

I love Power Poppy digital stamps.  Not a surprise to anyone that knows me and knows how much I love to color with my copic markers.  This week gave me the perfect opportunity to have some fun coloring.

I had so much fun coloring this image.  The stamp is called "Season's Greenings:  Wreath Digital Stamp" and makes the perfect Christmas card.  I pulled out my copics and had a couple hours of fun coloring.

I hope to see another of entries this week at PIP Challenges.  Who wouldn't want to win a $10 gift certificate to PowerPoppy.

Challenge Your Stash

 Today I am sharing a card I made for our Challenge Your Stash group in Splitcoaststampers.  Sharon is our hostess for the month of August.  Her challenge to us was to use water on our card, either an image, watercolor, spritz or word water.


For my card I used the Stampin Up "Waves of Inspiration" stamp set along with the matching dies.

The waves is cut out of silver paper. I colored the bird and logs with my copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by and a big thanks to Sharon for a great challenge this month.

Imky Paws Challenge

 I just realized that Christmas will be here before we know it.  So I thought I had better get a start on my Christmas cards.  I went to Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge for some inspiration because I have so many of their stamps.  I have so many adorable Newton's Nook Christmas cards and I decided to use "Winston's Home For Christmas".  Unfortunately I do not see that Stamp in their store any more but their are so many adorable Christmas stamps in their store.

The challenge at Newton's Nook Inky Paws  this week is a sketch challenge.  I always love those because they give me such great ideas for my card.

For my card I used Winston's Home For Christmas Stamp and the paper is from Stampin Up called Snowflake Splendor which made a beautiful background to highlight the stamp.  I used Stampin Up Ribbon and a few enamel dots to highlight the card.
Thanks to Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge for some great inspiration this week.  One Christmas card down.  Yea!

Dueling Darlings

Since yesterday was the 15th and also a Monday that I post for Pammie's Inky Pinkies design team, I will post my card for the Dueling Darlings today.  Our hostesses this month were Lorraine and Barb.  They came up with a wonderful theme of "Crafting" for our August theme.  It is a theme we can all relate to.  even at an early age I have always loved to craft and try new things.  Once I started cardmaking I found that I love coloring and putting cards together.

I had so much fun with the kit that Lorraine sent me.  I knew immediately that I wanted to make a shaker card with the fun sentiment.  The items in used for my card are:
Gina K. Designs "Craft Notes" stamp Set
Designer Paper by Doodlebug Design
Ribbons by Celebrate It.
Pink Pearls - Queen and Company.

I colored the images with my copic markers and put them on the card.  I used the sequins that Lorraine sent inside the shaker part of the card.

Thanks to Barb and Lorraine for a great challenge this month.

PIP Challenge #2233

 Today's challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies is being sponsored by Lawn Fawn.



For my card today I am using one of my favorite stamp sets from Lawn Fawn called Upon A Star.  

To make my card I found this wonderful designer paper called Fairy Hugs Craft Papers.  I then stamped the stars at the top of the page with versa mark ink and then used white embossing powder.  For the images I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers.  I used the matching dies to cut them out.  I then made a few hills with green paper and stamped the sentiment.

Thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring us this week.  You will always find some adorable stamps in their store.  I hope you check them out.

PIP Challenge #2231

 I am super excited about our Challenge #2231 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies because she is being sponsored by Newton's Nook Designs (One of my favorite stamp companies).  

Newton
I have always loved Newtons Nook Designs because when they first started they had 2 yellow kitties and of course my 15 year old yellow kitties remind me of theirs.  They are very entertaining even though they are 15 years old.
I thought about doing a kitty card but opted to one of my favorite stamp sets "Deer Friend".  I just love the sweetest of their deer images.  It also comes with a matching Die.  

I colored the images with my copic markers and then used the matching die to cut them out.  I used a piece of cloud paper from Echo Park "New Day" line.  I then used at TE "Here Comes the Sun" stencil in Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber.  I then used a MFT Grassy Hills Die for the bottom of the card.  I pop dotted all the images on to the card.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.  I sure hope you join us over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies for the challenge this month.  Also a huge thank you to Newton's Nook Designs for sponsoring us then week.
