Good Idea!

It is time for my feature over at the Rubbernecker Stamps blog. 

For my project this week I used a stamp and sentiment from the Coffee Set.  I used one of the smaller stamps from the set as an embellishment.  Both stamps were cut out using the matching die set.  I cut a mat from a piece of cardstock I had embossed with a chevron embossing folder using the Scalloped Oval with Pierce dies.  I cut out the sentiment using the same die set.

You should pop over to the blog and see what my teammates have made this week.  There is a lot of inspiration to be had over there.  If you are on Facebook, you can check out the group for even more inspiration.

Top o' the Mornin'

It is time for another challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner.  This week the challenge is Luck of the Irish.  We want to see a shamrock or clover on your project.

I used Coffee or Tea Panda from Kitty Bee Designs.  I placed him on a background paper from Nitwit Collections' Bit O' Blarney papers.  I cut out a shamrock from a scrap and placed it over the heart on the panda's cup.  The sentiment was created using the Silhouette software.  It was a cut file that is filled and printed.

Egg Hunt

Welcome back!  This week at Crafty Sentiments we have an anything goes challenge for you.  It would normally be new release week, but we have no new releases.  Hopefully next month we will be back on track.

I used Isobel Egg Hunting for my project.  She is colored with Copic markers and I used a white gel pen to add the design to the egg.  The paper is from the Echo Park Happy Easter collection available digitally on Snap Click Supply.

Hope to see you there!

Bunch of Bears

For my project on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog, I pulled out a stamp I have had for a while but didn't ever get around to inking up.

This is Bunch of Bears and it was colored using Copic markers.  Thank goodness there are so many varieties of brown!  The stamp was cut out using the matching die and matted with one of the Nested Oval X Stitch dies.  Then I cut out another mat using the Nested Oval Scalloped dies.  It just didn't have enough detail behind the cross stitch die so I used one of the Nested Oval Small Stitch dies and ran it through my Cuttlebug on top of my embossing mat.  It gave the perfect embossed detail!  The sentiment is from the Freehand Border Phrase set.  I stamped just the word "friendship" from one of the stamps onto a banner tag.

Don't forget to share your Rubbernecker Stamps projects in the Facebook group.  We love to see them!

For the Girls

This month, the challenge at Fabrika Fantasy is For the Girls.  We want to see your girly projects.

I used Young Marguerite and colored her with Copic markers.  I haven't decided what to use this card for, so it is without a sentiment for the moment.

You have a chance to win some Fabrika Fantasy images just for playing along.  If you use a Fabrika Fantasy image, you can win even more!
