Create from Your Stash

 Today is the day we are posting our creations for the Create From Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  Maggie is our hostess this month and her challenge was to make a clean and simple card.  I thought this would be an easy challenge but of course I waited until the last minute to make my card.  I got my supplies out this morning and it is definitely clean and simple.

I love foxes and have had the Hero Arts Fall Fox Bundle set just sitting on my desk of stamps I want to use.  I stamped the fox in the corner with the leaves.  I then stamped the image on peel away tape also and put it over the fox so I could use my stencil brush around the outside of the fox.  I use Distress Ink in China Blue.  I then colored the image with my copic markers.  So easy and fun.

Thanks Maggie for a great challenge.

Creative Crew

 This month's challenge for our creative crew bunch comes from Jeanette.  I really had to think hard on this challenge.  The September Theme is A Die that's Not a Die.  She sent me a large stitched scallop border die.  I really had to really use my thinking cap as to how I could use it in some other way than as a traditional die.

My first attempt was to make a card and use it as a border.  I cut out one side and then reversed it and cut out the other side.  You can see below the blue border I came up with using this technique.


I really wasn't happy with my card because I still used it as a border die.  So my next card was to cut out the die and then use it as a stencil.  I stenciled some waves with SU Marina Mist Ink and then reversed it and stenciled some clouds using SU Pool Party Ink.
So these were the 2 cards I came up with.  I can't wait to see what the rest of the team came up with.  If you click on the links below, you will find each team members take on this challenge.

Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2335

 Happy Labor Day!  I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing day.  Today starts a new challenge for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges. The challenge today is sponsored by Varada Sharma.


She has such beautiful digital stamps.  The one I chose for my card today is called Mini Slimline Floral Wishes.  The ideas are endless for this beautiful stamp set.

I printed off the image on my Canon printer and then colored the image with my copic markers.  I love coloring flowers so this was so much fun for me.  

Be sure and check out the Varada Sharma store.

Inky Paws Challenge

 They have a fun challenge over at Newtons Nook Designs.  

Inky Paws Challenge #205 is to use Stripes.  What a fun challenge this is.  For my card today I am using the stamp set Holiday Post



This was such a fun image to play with. I colored the image with my copic markers and pop dotted it to the striped paper.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Be sure and check out Newtons Nook Designs this weekend because they are having a sale and who doesn't like a sale.
