Sweet Pea Stamper's

The challenge over at Sweet Pea Stamper's is add alot of texture.
You don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamp but why not?!
The have some fantastic stamps for every occasion and alot of different artists.
I used an image called 'The Gift' by Norma Burnell.
The two frames are dry embossed with a cuttlebug folder. I colored my image with prisma colored pencils, micro beads on the ornament, liquid pearls and some bling from my stash. The frame for my SU sentiment is a stamp with a matching punch from SU. (I had these perfect little square gold beads that were perfect for the neckline on her dress.)

CWLC with Lunagirl

The challenge at Created With Love Challenges was to make project with miss you or sympathy. I made a sympathy card for my friend that just lost her Grandmother. My image is a Lunagirl image and if you love everything vintage like I do, you will check out her images.

Her images are so easy to work with, the images are already colored or ready for a card.
in fact this is the second time I photographed it. (I felt guilty that it didn't take long at all so I added the butterflies from SU, Which is a stamp and matching punch. LOL!)
My DP is from Hobby Lobby.

Flutterby Wednesday

This is Flutterby Wednesday's 262nd challenge!
I'm almost too late but for this week they have a sketch
I love sketches!
I altered it just a bit to accommodate my cute little 'Walnut Fairy' by Helena Reis at Sweet Pea Stamps. Part of my DSP is from SU and part I got at Hobby Lobby. My border punch is from SU as well as the butterflies. Added stickles on her wings.
 (don't forget your fairy or butterfly.)

Good Morning Everyone!
This week at Digitally Sweet we have an ANYTHING GOES and we are being sponsored by the talented Lacy Sunshine

Heather was generous enough to give us all a digi to work with but I already had the perfect ones
I chose 'Scrolled Snow Globe digi bits' and 'Eleanor and Pickles Magical Flight'
After I colored and assembled my snow globe, I colored and inserted Eleanor and Pickle's Magical Flight.
With my MDS2 I added a sentiment and watermarked a circle to make it look like a bubble in the globe. The snowflakes in the globe are part of the digi bits and I made some embossed snowflakes on the snow on top and changed the shadow to blue
I colored with paintbrush.

I tried to do all three. I used Ching Chou's kuik 'Seahorse' and 'Seahorse Illusion'. My color is purple and my embellishments are a SU, framelit die (the leaves look like sea growth to me) It's a triple easel card and my little easel in the front is a frame punch also from SU, I colored my images with prisma colored pencils.

Flower Pot Pretty 'Holly'

This a Lacy Sunshine Stamp call 'Holly' Flower Pot Pretty. Isn't she just adorable?!
This was a PNG so I made my own background in MDS2, drop shadowed it in WORD because in WORD it drop shadows just the digi and in MDS2 it drop shadows the whole square palette it is on. I printed it out and then colored it with prisma colored pencils.
At 'Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenges (which is their very first challenge) we were to add embossing so I made an easel card and used a folder from cuttlebug.
At 'Created With Love Challenges' were to add Christmas Reds and Greens.
At '613 Avenue Create' is an 'Anything Goes' with no optional twist.

Flutterby Wednesday

We were challenged to add a winged creature to our project at Flutterby Wednesday so since it's almost Thanksgiving, I made a card with a stamp from SU that I love.
All my stamps are from SU. My decal and pheasant were fussy cut out and I colored them in various spots with prisma. The butterflies were colored in various spots with prisma also, but they were punched out using a coordinating punch from SU. I made my sentiment on WORD and cut it out with a cuttlebug folder then of course I added stickles.
