Stripes in flight.

Hey Stampers!  Welcome to  another challenge for the Southern Girls Challenge Blog. This week team Lou is bringing a stripes challenge. Our sponsors are A Day for Daisies and Krafter's Kart. So my image is obviously cancer driven. I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it.  My butterfly is colored with the ribbon colors of cancers that have affected my personally.  I wish it was blank but  as you can see it isn’t.   I just googled cancer ribbon colors and then made my choices. I picked the following cancers to highlight. Breast, ovarian, melanoma, thyroid, lung, pancreatic,  bones, childhood, and cervical. I framed the the base in pink and then again in black. These two colors represent breast cancer and melanoma. These two impacted me greatly as my mom died from breast cancer and my dad from melanoma.  I don’t mean for this to be sad. This represents hope to me, hope that we will someday not need ribbons because they will all be gone. Please pop over to Southern Girls and take a look at the inspiration and play along

Add some ribbon, lace, or washi tape

Hey Stampers!  I know it has been a minute since I posted anything.  I started a new job at the beginning of the month and brain has been mush.   But I am back today with another challenge from Southern Girls Challenge.  This week is add ribbon, lace, or washi tape to your project.  Our sponsors are The Paper Shelter and Krafters Kart.  I am using an image from The Paper Shelter, Rosie,  I colored her with my Copics.  Her dress and headband I used RV34 and RV63.  Hair is E33, E37, and E39.  Boots are E55, E57, and E59.  Skin is E21 and E02.  I covered her dress and headband with my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen.  The card base is A2 size, top folding card.  I used some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink to give her a pink halo.  I used a makeup brush that I purchased off Amazon.  The washi tape is Carta Bella Flower Bouquet (which I discovered is discontinued)  The card base is Cotton Candy from Simon Says Stamp.  To give my washi tape a more finished look, I used my gold Peel Offs  to frame it. The flowers are from my stash.  They look like little pom pom's.  The sentiment is from The Rabbit Hole stamp set, Sassy Sentiments.  I love how this came together.  The great thing about doing challenges, is you get pushed outside your comfort zone.  I hope you will participate with us this week.  Keep in mind you don't have to use products from the sponsors, you just have to add ribbon, lace, or washi tape to  your project. 

This is project for today.  Thank you for stopping by.

Hoppy Birthday

Hey Stampers!  Welcome to my pad!  It has been a minute since I have posted.  Things have been a little crazy and for awhile my mojo took a vacation so it was very hard for me to create things I liked.

Today's project is for Southern Girls Challenge.  This week's sponsors are Lia Stampz and Three Button Studio.  My image comes from Lia Stampz and is called Hoppy Birthday  I printed my image on Neenan Solar Crest 110# card stock.

I watch a lot of videos on YouTube, as I am sure you all do too.  One of my favorites is Kelly Latevola.  She is always encouraging us to be brave.  I have seen her hand draw elements on her cards.  So I decided I wanted my frog on a lily pad but the image doesn't come with one so I drew one for him.  I think it turned out great if I do say so myself.  I colored everything with my Copic markers.  I didn't right them down this time I am so sorry about that.  I took some droplets from my stash that are the perfect green and blue color and placed them down with some liquid glue.  I added some Ebony Nuvo drops to his eyes and some icicles to the party hat and the heart.  I added some sparkle to the water but it doesn't show up in the photo. 

So that is my project for today.  I hope you will check out the Southern Girls Challenge blog and play along for a chance to win a prize from this week's sponsors.

Make a Wish!


Hey Stampers!  Welcome to another Try Stampin' on Tuesday guest post.  I used the sketch only in this card.  All my supplies for my card today came from the March Flavor of the Month kit from Scrapping for Less.  The dots are from Pink and Main.  I was going to use some Nuvo Drops in a blue that matched perfectly but it exploded.  (I am so glad that nothing got on the card.).  My base is a standard A2 top folding card.  I added some Yellow Bird Nuvo glitter drops to the flames of the candles.
Which unfortunately didn't photograph very well.  This card was super quick because I didn't do any stamping or coloring.  My circle is approximately 3 1/2".  The panel behind the circle is 2 1/2" wide and the length of the card base.  Those two pieces are trimmed in red card stock to give some layers and separation so everything doesn't blend all together.  My circle and cake are popped up with foam tape and that is all I really did.  This card is ready to give to someone.  Pop over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday and enter the challenge today.  I have two more weeks as a guest designer so come back next week for the new challenge.  Thank you for stopping by.

Let's Frame It Up!

Hey Stampers!  Happy Thursday!  I am bringing you a card using Peeking Easter Friends to showcase the new challenge over at Southern Girls Challenge blog.  The challenge this week is to Frame It.  So this is my take on that challenge.  So first I colored my images with Copics.  The chick is done with Y15, Y13 for the body YR16 for his beak. Just dots of R30 for his cheeks and E37 finishes him for his feet.  My frame is made from pre cut Polaroid frames that I bought on clearance at my local big box store.  I colored the frame with the YR16.  The sheep is colored with C2 and C00. I used R30 again for the cheeks.  I wanted the lamb to look as white as possible which is why I went very light on the C2 and used mostly C00.  For this frame I used RV14.  The bunny is my favorite I think because for some reason when I look at him I hear Joey from Friends saying "how you doing?"  Lol.  So he is colored with the same combo as the lamb but I put more C2 down and blended out with the C00.  I put R30 on the cheeks and a little bit on the inside of his ears.  His frame is colored with BV08.  I used silver glossy dots and put 3 by each frame.  The sentiment I love because it could be used for a birthday, Easter, Thinking of You, you aren't limited to just an Easter card.  So grab your frame dies or that package pre cut frames you bought just in case and play along with this weeks challenge. 

I hope you like my card.  Thank you for stopping by

Easter Stamping On Tuesday


Hey Stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  Can you believe we are in April already, the year is flying by.  This is my last month guest designing for Try Stampin' on Tuesday. It is my intention to do a project for all the sketches this month.  To the left is the sketch inspiration for this week.  The optional element was Easter Fun.  I followed the sketch but I did flip it so it was horizontal instead of vertical. 

For my image, I used Peeking Easter Friends from Gerda Steiner Designs.  Is this not the cutest bunny.  I colored him using my Copics.  I used C5, C2, and C00.  I used R30 for some pink in his ears and the little pads on his feet.  I colored the egg with Y15 and Y08.  I covered it with Yellow Bird Glitter Drops from Nuvo.  My pattern paper is from the new release from Doodlebug Designs called Hoppy Easter.  For stripes across the middle, I used my Purple Mirror Peel Offs from Love from Lizi.  The three dots are Pink glossy dots from the Birthday Girl collection. 

This card come together very quickly.  The solid card stock is from stash.  I used pink and purple.  So visit Try Stampin' On Tuesday and enter a project for this week's sketch challenge. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Come and create something with me.

April Fool's Day

Hey Stampers!  Happy Monday! I titled my post April Fool's Day because normally we have a new release on the first of the month for HeartcraftPaper but this month, Monica, the owner is taking a well earned break.  But we are still blog  hopping, we are doing the link party again which I thought was fun last time.

The image I used is Scent with Love .  I printed my image on Neenah Solar white 110# card stock.  I colored my image and cut it out.  I used a top folding card base.  My peony is is adhered to a piece of Coastal Cabana from Stampin' UP!  I used Glitter Goosebumps from Queen & Co.   The background behind my focal point is a piece of glitter card stock and two strips of aqua card stock from stash.  I added a pop of color to separate all the aqua by using my Purple Mirror peel offs.  I didn't use the entire sentiment I just used with love.   The peony is popped up on Scotch Foam tape.

Check out HeartcraftPaper for all the amazing images, svgs, and tutorials.  Click the link to join the party.


I hope you liked my post.  Thank you for stopping by.
