Three Cheers For the Birthday Girl--PP326-SSC144-Stamp Ink Paper #81

January 15, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players  and Sunday Stamps!

It isn't often that I can combined both challenges, but it worked this week! 


Our super talented Sandy is the hostess at The Paper Players  this week.  She has a great color combo for us!  I love black and white cards and adding a pop of color of your choice makes it even more fun!



 Sunday Stamps sketch is perfect for any type of card!

  • Please Link up a new project created for this challenge (no back links).

The challenge will end on Friday Jan.27th @ 6pm EST. 

And can you believe Stamp Ink Paper Challenge has the same color challenge this week? 


Seize The Birthday Challenge has the theme  "Anything Goes", so my card is perfect for their challenge, too!  I have never linked a card to four challenges before!  WOW!







My card is created on a white card base.  I used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches to cut the black background.  The white stitched squares were cut using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Wafer Squares.  I found a scrap of red and white polka dot paper and used the MFT Pinking Edge Square to cut the pieces behind the pandas.  The Clearly Besotted Cheering For You stamp set and  dies was used to create the cheerleaders.  Copic Markers were used to color them.  I added Wink of Stella for shine.  The sentiment was stamped with Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  




Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

I JUST LOVE YOU!--FMS 269

January 8, 2017

I am suppose to be cleaning my craft room, but got side tracked when I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just had to play along!




My white card base came alive with the Valentine DSP strip and the heart border.  MFT I Heart You image was stamped on Neenah Solar White and colored with Copic Markers.  Glossy Accents were added on the heart on the book, her hair barrette and her shoes.  I paper pieced the book with the same DSP as the strip on the side.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  A few sparkling clear sequins were added for fun.


Thanks for stopping by my blog!  

Have a fabulous day!

HUGS!

I Adore You!--PP326

It's Sunday and time for the first challenge in 2017 with The Paper Players !  

The Lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week!  She has a fabulous challenge for all of us!  We are "Going Green"!  We want you to recycle an item to use on your card.  It can be a recycled embellishment, a ribbon, a flyer from your mail or anything you find to use on your card.  We can't wait to see what you create!


We also want to welcome our new Guest Designers, Crystal, Valentyna and Deanne!  We are so excited to have them join us!  


My card is created on a white card base.  I found an old piece of Valentine paper in my stash and used it on my background.  I stamped the Stampingbella stamp, Bonnie Loves Bows image on Neenah Solar White paper and colored her with Copic Markers.  This Valentine if for my Granddaughter, Victoria.  She loves purple!  Lots of Wink of Stella was added for shine.  Clear sparkling sequins were added for fun.  I added  recycled white twine to wrap around my card and added a bow. I found this twine on a card I saved.  It was perfect to complete this card.  




So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!
