Tuesday Color Challenge with the Outlawz

This month our sponsor is 

Our winner will get the 3 digis that our team have to play with.

Don't forget our other Fabulous Sponsors for August

This week's challenge was chosen by Jeanie. Jeanie would like you to make a project using the chosen colour plus two more colours from the picture and add lace!

Again this week, we have a wonderful inspiration photo.  There are so many colors to chose from here.   I used the cute little scarecrow from Sheep Ski Designs.  I know, I have used it before, but he is so adorable, how could I not use him again.  This time, I colored him up in red, and matched him with fall papers.  I finished off the card with a leaf flourish and three paper roses.

Simply Beauty papers

Floral Cats

Beauty of Butterflies



For my project this week, I made this beautiful card.  I used The Beauty of Butterflies in ivory, and the Simply Beauty Patterned and textured papers in the pinkish/purple. (third one from the left).  While it is not quite a damask, it is close enough for me.  

I cut a card blank using my cameo. However, before it did the cut, I added the You are Unique sentiment and printed it on the card.  I then used the same pattern to cut the two different papers and the ivory butterfly.  I did make the butterfly considerably smaller again, using my cameo. I inked the edges of all of my papers, including the butterfly.  I added a ribbon and some beautiful paper flowers. After the flowers were added, I put the ivory butterfly on a piece of floral wire and inserted it into the flowers so it was hovering. I completed the card by adding another sentiment on the front of the card. 

Thanks for looking!

Big Eyed Bestie Sailor Boy

Just look at this adorable little sailor!  Isn't he just the cutest thing for a fun birthday card. This fun digi comes from Sherri Baldy.  This stamp is the big eyed, big head bestie sailor boy.  He can be found in the shop here

I colored this cute little guy with my Prisma Colored Pencils. 

I  created the sentiment using my Cameouing two different files that I merged together than did a print and cut. I also used foam pop dots to pop the sentiment up off the card.

Bestie with Sunflowers

I have a thought process going with this image, though, to be fair, my thought process doesn't always come to fruition.  What started out as a card, has turned into a tag, with thoughts of what else I can do with it.  My processes don’t always work out, to say the least, but the fun behind trying something new and exciting is always on my mind.  Such as with this little beauty from Sherri Baldy.  Isn’t she (Img830)just the cutest little thing popping up out of a barrel holding a hand full of sun flowers. 

Coloring her with my Prisma Colored Pencils, (my blending is getting better) my thoughts were to add sunflowers along side her to accent the flowers in the digi.  As you can see, that didn’t work out. So I thought, we will turn it into a tag, and use it with a larger project I have in mind.  Think burlap and more sun flowers and hemp twine!

For now, some simple fall leaves and burlap flowers complete this project. But look for more soon!

Createful Heart Digis

Today, I am here to share with you a new digi  company. Createful Heart Digi.  A fairly new business with some great digis.  Today marks the day of our first blog hop.  You can start here at the Facebook Group and see all of the wonderful creations from the Design Team.  Take some time to visit each blog, I know you will not be disappointed.

For this blog hop, I chose to use the wonderful dig Princess Annabelle.  

I colored Princess Annabelle using my Prisma colored pencils. I wanted to add a little bit of something so it did not look like she was sitting on air, so I added some lines to make it look like a hard wood floor.  I really love this digi and I am so pleased with the soft pink colors.  This made it so easy to chose some soft pastel pink papers from my cameo to create the the card.  I added a sentiment specific for a princess, again, cut from my cameo.

I hope you will join in with our anything challenge going on beginning today.   You will find all of the information on our Facebook Group.

Tuesday Outlawz Color Challenge

Our winner will get the 3 digis that our team have to play with.

Don't forget our other Fabulous Sponsors for August

This week's challenge was chosen by me.  Look at those fabulous colors. For this challenge we are using 3 of  colors. 

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

This week I used the cute little mermaid.  Inspired by both the colors and the water.  What beautiful mermaid would not love to swim around in those waters with those beautiful flowers. 

I used my Prima Colored Pencils to color this image.  I tried something new with this little mermaid, and while I like it, I know there is much work to do to make it better. 

I printed the papers from patterns on my Cameo, and completed the design with some pearls to match the paper. 

I hope you like it!

Crafty Gals Corner ~ Gate Fold Card using Wink Wink Ink

It's another week for the Crafty Belle's and Crafty Gals Corner.  This week we have a bingo challenge, and two great sponsors. 

Our sponsors this week are:

Get your Wink Wink Blinkie!

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate

Prize: 3 Digital Images

For this weeks challenge, I decided I wanted to try my hand at a gate fold card, but I had to stay within the realms of the Bingo Chalenge.  

I started by using two sheets of Designer Paper.  Both of which I printed with my Silhouette Cameo. This is such a great feature when you need something specific like I did here.  It is the wrong time of year to purchase Valentine's Day papers. 

Using the Luv Bugs from Wink Wink Ink, I created the heart and the scalloped heart to hold the gate card closed.  It did not turn out near like I had hoped, but it still works and is super cute.  I added flowers to the front in the top and bottom corners and found tiny buttons to put on the inside of the flowers. 

I finished off the card by adding another image of the Luv Bugs from Wink Wink Ink and a sentiment printed from my Cameo Silhouette. 

Isn't this just the cutest image?  Thanks for taking a look!
