Colorful Birthday

I was really inspired with the color challenge from the SNR Stamping Boutique group. The challenge was to use all the primary and secondary colors. I used the Stamping Boutique theater and actress Audrey. I colored the theater with watercolor pencils and added a rainbow and tree for the "set." I colored Audrey with Copics and Promarkers. I made a sentiment using stickers and added buttons for accents.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Stamping Boutique at SNR Back to Skool Challenge #1
2. Cupcake Craft Challenge #106 - Let's Get Digital

Happy Scrapping!

Garden Fairy Card

(2nd post) I had so much fun at the Stampin' Dragon blog hop today. Lil Diva Stamps offered a free image of your choice as her blog candy! I chose Garden Fairy. I broke out the watercolor pencils again today and remembered why I love them so much. I'm still looking for cardstock for my laser printer that I can buy by the ream and watercolors well. I added paper, flowers, and ribbons from my stash. The sentiment is from my Everyday Sentiments - circles.

1. Craftalicious Challenges #7 - purple and green
2. Magical Monday #3 - flowers

Glitterbabe Challenge DT Card and Digi Download a Day #26 - Past Digital Scrapbooking Freebies

It's Glitterbabe Challenge day (make sure to read to the end for today's freebies)!!! This week's theme is Asian and Stef gave us two great images to play with. I made a card using Asia and Peanut made a card using Panda Girl. Here's Peanut's card first. She colored it using Copics. She added a "Map" face from Dora the Explorer, which she aged using Tim Holtz Distress Ink. She loves the sticky backed chipboard Cosmo Cricket shapes that I won from The Latte Lounge. Finally, she chose her current favorite - blue glitter. She's definitely a girl after Stef's heart and believes there cannot be too much sparkle!


Here's my card. I love this sweet image. I colored her using Copics and added glitter glue to the swirls. I used a sticker sentiment - "So much of who we are is where we have been." I'm going to give this card to a co-worker who is leaving us tomorrow. The paper, which was in a pack from GCD Studio that I won from The Latte Lounge, is two sided and has a beautiful pearlescence to it. I added blue prima flowers and sparkly blue flower stickers.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Wild Orchid #3 - Make it Sparkle
2. Cupcake Challenge #105 - Blue and Green

Three Cards

I'm getting closer to 60 followers and a special addition to my blog candy! I was surprised by the response to today's freebie. Thanks everyone, I'm glad you find them as useful as I do. Tomorrow's freebie is accompanying circle sentiments.

I had a great night at the Digi Day party at The Latte Lounge - I won an image in the contest and won two contests. I'm the featured member this week, too! I made this card using the image I won in the contest. I love this image - If the Shoe Fits... I used papers from DCWV's Summer Stack and a sentiment from my Everyday Sentiments - Circles (these will be tomorrow's freebie).
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Truly Scrumptious #39 - sketch + optional brads, buttons and bows (I got buttons!)
2. Stampin' for the Weekend #45 - Anything Goes
3. Stamp with Fun #73 - Card for a girl (can you get more girly than kittens in shoes?)

I Did It Creations is the sponsor this month at Rakscraps. This card is made with a freebie from Robyn's Fetish. I had a lot of fun with this gnome. I used Creative Memories stickers for something to sit on. I colored him with my colored pencils. I distressed the image using Tim Holtz Distress Ink tea dye and then added gold glitter glue. I used a sentiment from my Everyday Sentiments - available as a freebie today. The main background paper is Prima and the others are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tim Holtz Inspired.

Peanut also liked Robyn's image. Her current favorite coloring medium is Crayola Washable Markers. She added several buttons and sparkly things, including her favorite - the sharp leaf (holly leaf). She chose blue glitter, which she spread out all by herself. I helped her cut the paper, but she chose the plain red background.
Thanks for hanging in with me on this long post. Hope you have a great evening.

Happy Scrapping!

Two Stamping Boutique Projects

I finished two projects for The Latte Lounge Digi Day Challenges tonight. I've entered three of the four challenges, so I think I'm doing pretty good : )

The first challenges was to create a birthday card. Peanut turns three next month, so I worked on her card. She wanted to be in the craft room as I was finishing it, so she helped put on the glue dots. She was very concerned about the bunny on the cake! I colored The Stamping Boutique image with watercolor pencils and added glitter glue. The sentiment is from my Everyday Sentiments - Circles and I added a "3" sticker. I'd also like to enter this card in the Cupcake Challenge #104 - 2 ribbons, 2 blooms, and 2 papers. It's Cupcake Challenge's Second Birthday and they're having a blog hop in addition to the challenge. I can't resist a good blog hop!
The other Latte Lounge challenge for tonight was to use wrapping paper. I used Tooth Fairy Cynthia from The Stamping Boutique that I won in the July Challenge from Latte Lounge. I actually got the stamp in the mail, which is really fun! I wrapped a jewelry sized gift box and added the image and sentiment (made from stickers).
Happy Scrapping!

Two cards for a Fun Weekend

(2nd post) I've had a fun weekend. There's a Beach Party at the I Did It Creations Forum and yesterday was Digi Day at The Latte Lounge. It's not too late to participate in both. The challenges at I Did It Creations Forum are open until August 27th. The challenges at The Latte Lounge are open until Wednesday.

2. Simon Says Challenge - Summertime Blues

My second card is for Challenge #2 - color challenge at The Latte Lounge. I used Swinging Cynthia from The Stamping Boutique. I won this image at the July Digi Day.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Digital Tuesday #71 - butterflies or lace
2. Fab 'n Funky #35 - Use your favorite colors - I think you can tell from looking at my posts that I LOVE pink. I really like it paired with green (or just about any color)!
