A Color Challenge with The Scrapbooking Queen

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This month's challenge with The Scrapbooking Queen is a color challenge using any image we wanted but the colors needed to be orange, purple and brown.  I used the cutest brand new image from Simon Says Stamp called 'Trick or Treat'.

To find out more info on the challenge you can go to the challenge blog HERE.  Every entry in this challenge has an opportunity to win the 'Royal' prize pack from the Royal Castle Shoppe.

The mummy pup is colored with COPIC markers, the bats were stamped in VersaMark and embossed with a mixture of black detail and clear detail powders mixed together...I think it makes them extra shiny.  The Halloween die cut comes from the matching die set for the 'Trick or Treat' stamp set.  The twine is from Doodlebug Designs, Inc.

Here's a close up.....

Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon!

Life is Good with Paper Nest Dolls and Lawn Fawn

Happy Monday everyone!  The weather this weekend in the Mid West has been spectacular! Sunny and cool and really enjoyed opened windows and doors!

It's time for another challenge for The Paper Nest Dolls.  This one starts today, 9/29 and runs through Friday, 10/10/14.  Our challenges are normally just an 'Anything Goes' challenge but this time we thought we'd knock it up a notch and ask that you include ribbon on your projects.  The Grand Prize winner gets a mystery pack of stamps worth $25 and the top three get a free digital stamp of their choice.

I previously made the circle shaker using Lawn Fawn's 'Life is Good' stamp set with matching dies.  I wanted to use it so I decided to make a care using the digital image 'Sand Castle Owen'.  All the coloring is done with COPIC markers.
Here is a close up of the shaker element on the card....
For the panel behind the shaker card I used Tim Holtz Distress inks and the inside shaking sequins are from Doodlebug Designs, Inc.

There were a lot of COPIC markers used for the coloring, if you're interested in knowing which ones please let me know.

Friends Fur-ever with Action Wobble

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm here this morning to provide some inspirational creativity from the 
Action Wobble Design Team. 

I made this cute little card for all those fur-baby parents!  All animals, especially dogs, are your friends Fur-Ever!!!  The pup was made with a die cut from LifeStyle Crafts which used  to be known as QuicKutz.  The papers are from BasicGrey 'Oliver' and 'Max and Whiskers'. I used an Action Wobble on the pup so he not only wags his tail but his entire body as well.  We all know that when dogs wag their tails there whole body shakes too.   Wow, I can't believe it but there is no COPIC coloring on this card at all!
Here is a close up of the Action Wobble, action!
Thanks so much for stopping and I hope to see you again soon!

Rockin' That Poodle Skirt - PND Challenge

Hello my friends!  It's hard to believe it's technically still Summer but I'm sitting on my couch with a blanket in my lap drinking a cup of coffee!  The temps sure don't know it's still Summer....the high yesterday was in the mid 50's.  Feels like we're going to go straight from Summer into Winter and I love Fall so much that would disappoint me!!! Reminds me of a line from the movie 'A Fish Called Wanda' - dis-a-POINTED!

I have another Paper Nest Dolls 'Anything Goes' challenge for you!  It starts today, 9/15, and ends on Friday, 9/26.  'Anything Goes' challenges are great because you can make anything your heart desires!

My project today is a card using the cute image called 'Poodle Skirt Avery'. I love the poodle skirt - oh and the ice cream sundae ain't half bad either!

I love coloring these little dolls but I have a heck-a-va time with the hair.  But here's close up of cute little Avery.

Remember, you have until 9/26 to enter your creation.  You can check out all the design team projects as well as any additional information needed on the Paper Nest Dolls Challenge blog by clicking HERE

GO TEAM with an Action Wobble

Hello my friends and welcome to my project for the Action Wobbles Design Team. I made this cute little card using a digital image from Mo Manning called 'Gimme a B'.  I thought it was a perfect image to use since both school and football season have just started.
It's always a challenge to snap a pic while the action wobble is wobbling, but I managed to get it done!  
Now if you don't know what an Action Wobble is, it's a little spring that you adhere to your card base and your die cut/cut out image that will make your image shake around.  

I made this project a while ago and unfortunately I don't remember the COPIC markers used to color her. The sentiment is die cut from Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs and colored with COPIC markers.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
