So Sweet

Welcome back to another challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner.  We have a fun challenge for you...Fancy Folds!  I had to do some looking online to try to decide on a fold to use for this challenge and I finally settled on a Double Dutch Fold card.  I found an easy tutorial by Jan Farring and went to town.  I increased the width just a bit to accommodate my stamp, but it was really easy to do.

This is what the card looks like closed.

And this is how the card opens.

There is plenty of room inside for a sentiment and embellishments if you choose.  I used Sugar Girl from Lia Stampz for my project.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out with the Silhouette.  Her can and her decorator tube have silver Wink of Stella on them.  I added the embellishments to help keep the card closed.  I found the paper on Snap Click Supply during a One Buck Wednesday sale.  Every Wednesday, they have digital collections on sale for $1.  And guess what today is!! This paper is from the Echo Park, Birthday Wishes - Girl collection.

My Heart

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs the challenge is to create a birthday card.  We always need them in our stash, so it is great when you can play in a challenge as well.

This is My Heart Cake and it was colored with Copic markers.  I colored the image and then found this digital paper that I had printed but not used.  It was the perfect color palette for this card!

You have a chance to win great Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along.  You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments product to be eligible, but you can win more if you are chosen as the random winner.  Plus you are eligible to win the prize for the Crafty Sentiments Favorite as well.

So come play along and add another birthday card to your stash.

Lady With Class

Today is my Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday inspiration and I have created this project for you.

I used Shannon and colored her with Copic markers using a technique to make the dress look like it has sequins on it.  Let me know what you think!  The background paper has a pearl sheen and was embossed to add a little texture to show it off.  The sentiment is Lady With Class and was embossed with champagne embossing powder.  A few gold accents and it is done!

You can play along in the challenge hosted by our challenge design team.  You have a chance to win a gift certificate for the shop.  With the holidays coming, that means some new holiday stamps to add to your collection!

Pixie Dust

Wow!  I cannot believe how quickly the days are passing!  It is time for another Rubbernecker Stamps feature post.

This week, I used Aby again because I got this awesome Pixie Dust sentiment to go with her and I couldn't wait to use it!  She was colored using Copic markers and fussy cut.  One day I will take the time to learn how to use my mat to cut out my rubber stamps with my Silhouette.  Until then, fussy cutting it is!  I used a Copic Spica pen on her wand and clear Wink of Stella on her wings.

Did you know we have a challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps now?  Did you also know you could win some cash to spend in the shop on sweet stamps like Aby?  We do and you can!  Pop over to the blog to see the current theme and play along.  You don't have to use Rubbernecker products to play, but we love to see what you do with them if you have them.

Autumn Gypsy Flower

Hello MoonFlower fans!  Rae Ann here with your dose of inspiration today.  Here in the states we are moving into autumn and I love the cooler temperatures.  I also love autumn colors, but we don't get much of that in my part of the country. projects have to make up for it.

I used a rich autumn color palette to color Gypsy Rose.  I love this image and now I think I love it even more!  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  I just love how she looks in these colors!

Andreia hasn't been feeling very well.  If you are on Facebook, pop in to the MoonFlower group and wish her well.  We miss having her around and seeing all of her lovely, new creations!  If you are not part of the group yet, just pop in and request to join.  We would love to have you there!

Hello everyone.  This week at Crafty Gals Corner our challenge is to use your favorite color.  This time of the year, my favorite colors to use are fall colors.  But this little girl didn't really fit a fall theme, so I used my favorite color, blue, instead.

This is Maddie and she is from Beccy's Place.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  I couldn't decide on an accent color, so I went with white for a crisp look.  I kept the design simple so I could add any sentiment I wanted once I know how I will use it.

Beccy's Place is our sole sponsor this week.  You have the chance to win three digital images or one digital set for playing along.  Click the badge below to pop over to her shop.
