SAT dt - Theme Week "Mad About Plaid"

Hey there!  Today is my turn to post over on the Stamp Anniething blog and I am sharing a card I made for the current Theme Week Challenge.  This challenge is all about plaid!!


It seems like plaid has made a comeback in the paper crafting arena with so many designer paper pads themed around plaid.  I used some papers from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 paper pad for my card.  


I used "Katy - without the rain" for my focal point.  The sentiment is from a discontinued stamp set I had in my stash.  



I paper pieced the umbrella and the rain jacket and colored everything with copic markers.  I did a little inking with distress inks and embellished with some sequins in my collection.  I hope you will join us in this month's challenge.  You have until December 8th to link up a project in the Facebook group HERE.

Sunflower Hello - SAT dt

Hi there!! It's my day to post over on the Stamp Anniething blog and  I am sharing a card I created using "Molly - Sunflower".  



We just went to the pumpkin patch this weekend and there were still tons of sunflowers in the fields there.  They were a little weather worn from some of the rain we have been receiving but still glorious and standing tall.  I left my card without a sentiment so that I can use it for a variety of occasions.  I chose to create visual interest with layers and some sequins and twine.

Happy Halloween - SAT dt

Hi there!!  It's my turn over on the Stamp Anniething Blog and I have a Halloween themed card to share with you for this month's theme challenge.  I used the "Sofia - Viva la Vida" stamp set from the most recent stamp release for my card.   I let the background papers I chose help inspire the colors for my image and then colored with my copic markers.


I love adding purples to my Halloween schemes!  I have 3 grown daughters now and they were never into the scary side of Halloween so I tend to gravitate toward the cutesie side ;  I pulled out a forgotten border punch - the Martha Stewart "drippy goo" punch, remember that one?!  My sentiment is from a retired Craftin Desert Divas stamp set and is meant to look a bit creepy! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you will join in the fun with this months challenge -

`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~



I colored this sweet image in with my copic markers.  To be honest this is the first time I have tried black hair and I was a bit nervous ;) I definitely need to get a couple more darker markers to add in to the hair color mix but overall I was pretty satisfied with my first attempt!



  I added a die cut fan out of gold cardstock.  The fan is a file from the Silhouette store - #7838.

Hey Foxy! - Die Cuttin Divas Guest DT

Today I am guest designer over on the Die Cuttin Divas Blog.  


The challenge for this week is a sketch - 


Here is what I came up with - 


What a fun sketch to work with!!  Feeling in the fall mood I decided to use some fall themed papers from Doodlebug as my inspiration.  I then went through my collection of Doodlebug Designs cutting files and chose this cute fox - I got my file from the Silhouette store #211355.  My sentiment is from an old My Pink Stampers stamp set.  This is a great sketch to work with papers and files that have been in your stash for awhile now too ;)  I hope you will join in the challenge this week!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Enjoy Autumn!! - SAT dt

Hi there!!  Today is my turn to post on the Stamp Anniething Blog and I have a fun card to share with you!  I have always wanted to create this style of card and I felt like this stamp image - "Julie enjoy the ride" - worked perfectly for this type of layout.


The card base is created from a couple of different files from the Silhouette Online Store - #211031 and #181831.  My card fits perfectly with the current Stamp Anniething Theme challenge - "Autumn".  


I colored the image in with my copic markers - 
Hair - E21, 23, 25, 27
Skin - E04, 11, 00, 000 and R20
Dress - Y15, 17 and YR23
Bike - BG13, 18
Basket - E33, 35
Flowers - BV08, Y17, YG25, RV25, YR07

My sentiment came from a CardzTV Stamps set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Day 5 Jaded Blossom September Release

Today is Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom September Release and the design team is showcasing a new stamp set - "Fall Origami" and a new die - "Happy Halloween" (which is the freebie for orders $40 or more).  
I pulled out my Zig watercolor markers and created a card - 


I stamped and embossed the pumpkins randomly across the background.  I used Versafine Black Onyx and some Recollections clear embossing powder.  I used my Zig markers and a paintbrush and water to color in my background layer.  I then cut a border out of complimentary papers to back the "Happy Halloween" sentiment which was cut with the freebie die.  Finally I adhered some coordinating sequins from my stash.  




Tonight is the blog hop for the Jaded Blossom September Release so I hope you'll come back and visit again later!! The fun starts at 4pm PST!!
