PIP Challenge #1709 - Anything Goes!


The PIP Challenge #1709 is anything goes!


For my card, I used Bunnies Special Surprise from Di's Digi Stamps.  I colored the image using a waterbrush and Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  Added a bow and small flower to embellish; background cardstock and paper are from my stash.

We hope you'll share your creations with us this week.  You can find this week's PIP Challenge HERE.

Dies R Us Challenge #67 - Think Spring!


This is my first time to enter the Dies R Us challenges!  I really love using dies on my cards and projects.

The Dies R Us challenge theme is Think Spring.  For my card I used PoppyStamps Weeping Willow Tree die, CheeryLynn Exotic Butterfly Small die, and Impression Obsession grass die (actually, I think it is the IO sea grass die, but it is grass nonetheless, and it looks like it needs to have a lawnmower taken to it!  LOL)

I created the background by sponging distress inks onto the white cardbase before adhering the Willow tree die cut.  I used Chameleon pens to give the tree leaves a little color.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Winter Blues? Let's Take a Vacation!


It's my turn to host the challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

I chose the theme ... Winter Blues?  Let's Take a Vacation!  Our next stop is anything destination or travel related!

For my card, my destination is the beach!  I used the beach image from the CTMH Perfect Day stamp set.  I first created the background by using distress inks and dabbing the colors onto an acrylic block then spritzing with water before stamping it down onto my watercolor paper.  Let it dry and then stamped the image and colored the image using Chameleon pens.  The die cuts are from Lil Inker Stitched rectangle dies.

We hope you'll share your vacation destination or travel related creations with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.  You can find the challenge HERE.
