Up, Up & Away!

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is doing great this fabulous Wednesday! Today I'm a sharing a card I made using the Up, Up and Away digi. I love this sweet little image, and finally got to play with my MS glow-in-the-dark glitter! Woohoo! I started by finding my nice grey american crafts paper. I thought it would make the perfect background for a starry sky! Then using spellbinders cut out my moon, which was embossed with "Tiny Dots" cuttlebug floder, and covered in glitter. Then I hand cut my stars, I wanted them to be a little different and not perfect, then they of course got the glitter treatment too! Don't forget to check out the 2 Cute store for the newest digi cuties!!
And of course a shot in the dark! :)
Thanks for coming to check out my card! Don't forget to join the DT and I over at the Paper Trail Makers for your chance to win a big ol' box of scrappy goodness!

And, yes even a little scrapbooking!

I was very excited to steal away a little time to scrapbook this week. The idea started when I saw the challenge at Papercraft Star! Circles, that got me thinking of baseball, and then I thought of this awesome digi by Kenny K of course! Phew! Follow that thought process?!?!? LOL Well here it is! If you are looking for a fun place to hang out and chat please visit me at Trailmakers forum! I'm so excited to begin sharing more and more of my scrapbooking as a DT member for Paper Trail Makers!

What a Bathing Beauty!

Just finished working on my second TiddlyInks card of the day! I even got to use the challenge sketch at TiddlyInks Challenge Blog! I just adore this little Bathing Beauty! I colored her using my Copics (oh how I love my markers!) Used papers from Bazzill, Bo Bunny, Basic Grey, and Graphic45. The jewels are from Recollections. And the sentimentis from a set I won from Paulette at Create with TLC. I have looked at the digis for a long time and saw the opportunity to download the set for free and jumped all over it! You simply MUST check out this site! She has tons of freebies and great sentiments! I'm also entering this into Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #17, ANYTHING GOES!

It's Wednesday again, which means I get to share a new card made using 2 Cute Stamps! I colored this image 4 times, using my Copics. Then cut them out and placed them on paper from DCWV's " The Man Stack". Then I used Tim Holtz distress ink: Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap todistressthepaper. I used matching ribbon by spool o' ribbon and natural lace trim from Card Blanc. The sentiment was computer generated and distressed also. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Summer Fun!

I have been coloring like mad this week! I love having so many wonderful images to color and create with! The one I'm sharing today is no exception!!! It is from Tiddly Inks, called Sandy Memories, perfect for the Challenge this week; Create a fun and sunny project! Nothing says fun and sun like playing at the beach! I was extra excited to work with this particular image because I had a plan :). My plan involved printing the image on some sheets of sand paper (picked up at the local dollar store), then using pop dots to create a 3 dimensional sand castle! I love how it came out and was thrilled my printer actually printed cleanly on the sand paper. So I'm wishing all of my readers a little sand fun and lots of fun! (but don't forget the sunblock and water too!)

What a Hoot!

100 posts! Woohoo! I'm excited to make this 100th post tonight!~ Just this week I was invited to join the Design Team for 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. So be on the lookout, every Wednesday I will be posting some great cards featuring these wonderful stamps! This week I was working on my son's end of school gift. (Will this school year ever end?!?!?!) I had the opportunity to help out in his class on Fridays and got to know his teacher very well. Next year she will be teaching 2nd grade and French! How fun would that be? So we ordered her a bunch of books to help her out. We still have 6 french books on the way from Barnes & Noble, but I love it so far! The Owl is the "Owl Miss You" digi stamp available here! (Come on you know you want to go shop!) I used some bright colored paper by The Girl's Paperie: On Holiday line. I used these copics to colored my feathered friend : R29, R27, R17, Y17, YR04, YR07, E47, E29, & E35. Got all that? :) The tin was from Target in the Dollar Spot. The ribbons on the handles are all scraps I have! I also made sure to make the inside of the card look nice. I used the flower that the owl is holding on the inside and left plenty of space for my son to write a thank you. Hope you all like it! Head on over to 2 Cute!
