Wild Washi

This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is Wonderful Washi.  Use some Washi tape on your project


I used Clyde from LeAnn's World 101 for my project.  He was colored with Copic markers and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.

I have to admit I am not a fan of washi tape.  I don't ever buy it, but I have received some in some subscription kits.  If I hadn't, I would have had to go buy some for this project!  I found this gorgeous copper tape in a past Spellbinders card kit.

Summer Fun

This week at Crafty Sentiments, the challenge is Anything Goes.



For my project, I used Teddy Jack - Bucket and Spade.  In my neck of the woods, summer has arrived and it is time to hit the beach!  I colored this sweet bear with Copic markers.  I didn't have a sand castle embellishment, so I used a Cuttlebug Embossable and an embossing folder that kind of looked like sand.

Walkies

This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is Embossing Delights.  Use some type of embossing on your project.


I used Walkies from SheepSki Designs for my project.  Love this gnome walking his caterpillar!  The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  Looking at it now, I wish I had cut out the extra white.  I used different embossing folders to create the scene for these two.

This month at Crafty Gals Corner, the challenge is for the ladies!


I used Spring Faerie from MoonFlower Digital Stamps for my project.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  Love her in these colors!  the border is actually a heart border punch, but I only wanted the bottom of the heart to show.

Flowers for You

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our theme is anything goes.


This stamp is called For You Mum.  I thought it would make a great Mother's Day card, but then realized this post would be after Mother's Day!  This stamp works for so many occasions though.  I use Copic markers to color the stamp.  The background paper has gorgeous rose gold foil accents you can just see at the top of the card and so do the paper straws.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is to use your favorite embellishment.


This image is Bertha's Bloomin' Box from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  I wanted to use a backround paper that kind of looks like a wall.  I found this weathered board paper in the Flock Together collection from Gennifer Bursett available digitally on Snap Click Supply.  I thought the colors were so fun and fit this lady's personality.  My favorite embellishments are lace, ribbon, and buttons.  I got two of the three in this card!  The sentiment is a sticker from a Spellbinders card kit of the month.

Beautiful You

This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is Friendship.  We want to see your cards celebrating friendship.


For my project this week I used Field Flower Silhouettes from The Artsy Stamper.  The image has a transparent background so you can print it with any background or layer it for even more flowers.  The background I chose is from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection available digitally from Snap Click Supply.  The sentiment is also from that set.

Happiness

This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is to use buttons. 


I chose my image from the Showers of Tulips set by Jan's Digi Stamps.  What I didn't realize when I chose this image was that it is only available pre-colored.  I was looking forward to coloring all of those gorgeous tulips!  The sentiment is part of the stamp set as well.  I used a banner cut file on my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the layered banner.

Spring/Easter Hugs

This month at Crafty Gals Corner, our challenge is Easter or Spring.


I used Cuddle Buns Gets Squished from Creative Bug on the Loose for my project this week.  The fence is part of the image, so I decided to make a little scene.  I thought both of the background papers looked a lot like eggs after they have been dyed.  Ours always had great variations in the density of the dye.  The paper I used for the sky actually came out of a Bo Bunny pad called Cottontail Collection.  The grass paper came from a One Canoe Two pad that just happened to be laying on my counter.  What a happy coincidence!

Hey There!

This week at Creative Knockouts we have an anything goes challenge for you.


This is Spring Chick from Fabrika Fantasy.  He was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  He has silver Wink of Stella on his tricycle and clear on his goggles.  As I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this card, I saw a paper pad from One Canoe Two that I recently purchased.  It is called Saturday Afternoon and I thought this paper was just perfect for this image!  A quick sentiment from Paper Smooches and it was done!
