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.

You have a chance to win a digital set from the store.  Hop on over and see what other awesome images are available.

This week at Crafty Sentiments, we have an Anything Goes challenge for you.

I chose Tulips for my project.  It was colored with Copic markers and cut out using a Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things.  I thought pretty spring colors would work well for this!  The sentiment stamp is from DeNami Design.

You have a chance for some great Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along this week.

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!
