In the Meadow

Did someone say it is Wednesday?!  It can't be Wednesday again already!  Since it is, that means it is time for another challenge at Creative Knockouts.  Our challenge for you is anything goes.

This sweet little guy is Mushroom Elf from Fabrika Fantasy.  He was colored with Copic markers.   I used the Silhouette to cut him out.  The paper is a digital paper from Designs by Dani on Snap Click Supply.  I love One Buck Wednesday!

Fabrika Fantasy has generously offered 3 digital stamps to the winner of our challenge.  There are so many gorgeous stamps!  Click the badge below to pop over and look at them all!

I hope you will join us!

I used Gello Giraffe and Friend from Kitty Bee Designs for my project.  I loved the way he turned out in these colors the last time, so I just had to do it again!  He and his little friend were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  The papers are from Carta Bella's It's a Boy collection.  You can find them digitally on Snap Click Design.  Today is One Buck Wednesday!  My favorite day to shop the site!

Under the Sea

It is time for some new MoonFlower inspiration over on the MoonFlower blog.  It is my turn to host and I have a fun project using the new Lilly Mermaid.

I took my inspiration from a pretty well known mermaid.  Can you guess who I mean?!  I found myself singing the song Under the Sea as I was working on this project!  Lilly was colored with Copics and fussy cut by hand.  I didn't want to lose all of the bubbles surrounding her, so I chose to cut her by hand rather than use the Silhouette.  She has glass micro beads for all of the pearl bits around her tail and hair.  I think I will be finding those for weeks!

Why not join us in the MoonFlower Facebook group?  As part of the group you find out when the new releases hit the shop.  Andreia also does a flash sale or a giveaway now and then.  Most of all, we want to see your lovely projects.  We love to ooh and ahh over every single one of them.

Hippity Hop

Hello everyone!  Today begins the new challenge at the Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge blog.  The theme this week is Easter.

For my project I used Isobel Bunny Suit.  Unfortunately, the shop is experiencing some technical difficulties, so I cannot link you to where you can find the stamp.  I colored Isabel with Copic markers but I pieced her egg.  I managed to use up a couple of scraps of paper on this card.  I wish that actually made a dent in the number of scraps I have left!

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments images just for playing along.  If you are chosen as the random winner AND you have used a Crafty Sentiments stamp or image, you win extra prizes!  How fun is that?!

Hopefully the shop will be up soon so you can have a crafty browse around the shop.

Thank You!

It is time for the Sweet Sunday post over at Rubbernecker Stamps.  I decided to make a cheerful thank you card this week.

I had this scrap of polka dot paper left over from another project and I thought it would be the perfect starting place for this project.  I pulled out sweet little Clare and colored her with Copic markers to match the paper. The sentiment came from the Best Wishes set which is now available in clear.  You can also get a matching die set to cut it out! 

Rubbernecker Stamps now has a challenge and we would love to see you play along.  You have the chance to win cash to use in the store.  All of the new clear stamps and dies have been released, so some extra cash would be an awesome thing!

Get Well

Welcome back Rubbernecker Fans! It is my turn to be featured over on the Rubbernecker blog. I made this card using the pill bottle from the new clear Get Well set.

I colored the stamp with Copic markers and cut it out using a stitched rectangle die from Echo Park.  The sentiment came from the Best Wishes set which is now in clear.  I cut the curved sentiment apart and stamped it in a straight line to fit my card.

All of the new clear sets are available in the shop along with their matching dies.  It is so exciting!  Don't forget to play along in the challenge because you have a chance to win a gift certificate for the Rubbernecker store.  Those clear sets and matching dies are waiting for you!  So what are you waiting for?!

Young Girl

Hello everyone.  It is time for a new challenge at Creative Knockouts and this week we challenge you to use borders.  I don't use mine often enough, so I was super happy to pull out one of my favorite border punches.

I used this sweet Young Girl stamp form AMB Illustrations.  I thought she was just perfect for a card with springy colors.  You could even use her for Easter with this gorgeous hat.  She is colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.

Our sponsor this week is AMB Illustrations and you have a chance to win 3  single packs or a trio, or a single and a combo.  So many choices!  Click the badge below to check out what is available in the shop.

I hope you will play along with us!
