Thankful Thoughts

This is Autumn Girl from All Dressed Up.  She was colored with Copic markers and I kept the card simple this time.  The papers are from the Nitwit Collections On a High Note digital collection.

Winter Is Coming

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our challenge is for you is to create a winter themed project.  Here is my inspiration project.

I used Come on Teddy and colored it with Copic markers.  I originally cut the stamp out using a die, but then I realized I colored the ground brown instead of snowy!  I fussy cut the image to get rid of all of the brown and created this sweet scene instead.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along.  You don't have to use a crafty Sentiments project, but if you do, you have the chance to win even more.

I hope you will play along.

Colorful Place

Hello!  It is time for the Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  I have a sweet project that is quick and easy.

I used Be Yourself and colored it with Copic markers.  I cut out the image and mat using Echo Park Stitched Rectangle dies.  You can find a similar set at Rubbernecker Stamps.  The sentiment is from the Freehand Border Phrase Set.  I put a piece of scotch tape over the word "colorful" and inked the sentiment with black ink.  Then I pulled the tape off and used a marker to make the word "colorful" colorful!  I cut out the sentiment using the Nested Squares Small Stitch Die Set.  A bit of lace, a flower and tiny banners and it was done!

Don't forget to join our challenge.  You have a chance to win cash for the Rubbernecker Stamps shop.

Classy and Fabulous

Hello Rubbernecker Stamps Fans!  It is time for my feature over on the blog and I have brought this bit of inspiration for you.

This is Fern.  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  I also used the sentiment Classy for this card.  Fern does have a matching die so you don't have to fussy cut if you don't want to!  I was digging through my bits and pieces box and found these stars that were left from a Silhouette cut and I thought they were perfect!  I love when I can use those extra bits left over that we hate to throw away!

Don't forget to check out our challenge.  You have a chance to win cash to spend in the Rubbernecker Stamps shop.

This week at Creative Knockouts the challenge we bring to you is to use your favorite color combo.  I don't know about you, but mine change with the seasons.  So my project this week uses my favorite winter color combo.

This is Christmas Presents from Broken Fairy Designs.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  As I was coloring this sweet image, I realized she doesn't have anything that stands out specifically as Christmas.  This image could also make an awesome winter birthday card!  I have left a sentiment off until I decide.  I will probably use it for a birthday card because I am responsible for making cards for my co-workers' birthdays.  It will be good to have another in the stash!

You have a chance to win three images from our sponsor, Broken Fairy Designs, for playing along this week.  Click the badge below to take a look at the shop.

Welcome Baby!

Hello everyone!  It is an exciting time at Sami Stamps!  Sami has welcomed a new member into her family!  There is no new release while Sami gets to know her sweet little addition, so we are all using baby themed images from the shop.  The challenge this month is to use a sentiment.

 I chose Looking at My Sweet for my project.  So precious!  I colored the image using Copic markers and cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo.  I wanted mother and child to be the center of attention, so I did a larger image with minimal embellishments. 

Since the theme this month is to add a sentiment, it is so super easy to play along!  Just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image to be eligible to win a prize.
