Thank You!

I have a sweet card for you for my Rubbernecker Stamps feature this week.  I used the Foxes stamp set and created a thank you card.

I colored one of the fox stamps and cut it out using the matching die set.  Then I matted it with the Nested stitched circles and the Nested Scalloped Circles with Holes dies.  The sentiment is from the Best Wishes set and I cut it out using the Nested Stitched banners.  Whew!

Join us in the Facebook group if you are on Facebook.  You can also pop over to the blog and check out what my teamies have made this week as well.

Sweet Sloth

This week at Creative Knockouts our challenge is called a Charmed Life.  We want to see a charm on your project

This is Lazy Sloth from Imagine That.  I pulled out some dies from the July 2017 club kit from Spellbinders.  I kept the design fairly simple because of all of the dies.  Then of course, I had to have my charm.

You have a chance to win a $10 coupon to use in the shop.  This sweet image came with a bunch of sentiments and multiple digi files.  I couldn't decide what sentiment to use, so I will pick one when I decide how I will use this card.  You can click the badge below to check out the shop.

I used Fall Dog from Digital Delights for my project.  He was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  The patterned paper is a leftover scrap from a previous project.  It is from the Nitwit Collections Autumn Enchantment bundle.

Happy Fall

Usually September brings cooler temperatures, but here in the panhandle of Florida, it is still warm and humid.  I look forward to when the temperatures will drop and the humidity slacks off.  Our challenge at Fabrika Fantasy is all about cool temperatures and fall colors.  We want to see your Autumn projects.

I love fall.  When we lived up north, the fall colors were gorgeous and I looked forward to them every year.  We don't have fall colors down here, but at least I can still color with them!  This is Autumn Fairy.  She was colored with Copic markers.  I loved coloring her with all of my favorite fall colors.  The background paper is from Nitwit Collections' Autumn Enchantment.

You have a chance to win some great Fabrika Fantasy prizes for playing along.  Show us your Fabrika Fantasy project and you have a chance to win even more.  You will be entered in a special drawing just for projects using a Fabrika Fantasy image.

But First...


In my continuing theme of coffee and using every, single one of the new coffee stamps, I have made another coffee card for my inspiration post over at the Rubbernecker blog.  This sweet guy is Stokes, and he looks like how I feel when people are talking to me before I have had my coffee!

He was colored using Copic markers and fussy cut.  He does have a matching die, but I don't have it in my stash yet.  I will definitely be adding it soon!  The sentiment comes from the Coffee Blanket set and I used one of the Nested Banner Stitch dies to cut it out.  He was mounted on a Nested Oval Small Stitch die and that was matted with a Nest Oval Scallop with Pierce.  I love mixing and matching all of the awesome dies available from Rubbernecker!
