New release for Scrapper's Delights

It is new release day at Scrapper's Delights and today the release are three new Anime images and if you buy the bundle you will receive a free Anime star sign bundle. I am using the image called Let's Dance for my project today.


Trying watercolor pens

Today I have a card with a difference. I recently was able to get a set of Arteza real brush pens at an amazingly discounted price and so I had to try them out. I thought this image would work perfectly. It is a stamp in my wood mounted stamp stash by Stamps Happen, Inc called His Symphony.


Spring is in the air

This is my second and last project as a Guest Designer for the Cute 'N Crafty Challenge blog and this time the sponsor is Sherri Baldy and the winner will receive three My Besties images. But the great news is that I was invited to stay on as a full Design Team member and so you will be seeing more of my projects over there.


Bright flowers

Happy Saturday to all my blog friends. Today I am back with another two cards made out of pieces of my watercolor panels. Those two panels really were so much fun to use for various projects.

Here is the first one. I cut the flower and the sentiment from the pink panel and the leaves from the green/yellow panel. I ran the front of the card base through my Texture Boutique with an embossing folder.


One more deer card

Today I am back with the last card I created with the deer cutouts I made. I will be making some more as I still want to try the paper piecing aspect that is possible with this die, but this is a white silhouette version.


Outlawz's Birthday!

I was able to go "shopping" last night in a new-to-me digi store - Imagine That digistamp. I had won a voucher from the store in a previous challenge win and so I got to browse the store. Kris and her daughter have lovely digis, you should stop by. I found this boot planter digi there and decided that was the perfect image for a birthday card for Outlawz, who is celebrating their 8th birthday.

The celebrations include a challenge and a blog hop, so be sure to check in. I made a card with a difference. This is the first time I created a card with purely digital elements. The digi is the precolored one that comes in the Cowboy Cactus Planter digi set.


Chocolate eggs

I recently discovered the The Outlawz. I was looking for crafting communities outside of the Facebook platform and that is how I discovered them. There are a number of challenges, one being a monthly Progressive Challenge. Since I took part last month, I automatically got the image this month - these eggs drawn by Sandra VanBlaricum, an Outlawz DT and admin.

I don't usually make Easter cards, so it took me a bit to find inspiration for this image. But it hit me - chocolate! Yes, chocolate Easter eggs are the best and I buy them every year.


Watercolor flower

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am back with another no-coloring card. This beautiful rose die is the second half of the prize I won over at the Butterfly Challenge and I thought my watercolor panel was just the right thing to try it out on.


Kindness always works

Today marks the start of another challenge over at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge blog. If you are a member of any Design Team, you may enter our Anything Goes challenge. The sponsor is always Julia Spiri and there are various win and mention categories.

For my project this month I used the sweet image called Be My Valentine. This image goes way beyond just a Valentine's Day image. Just think of all the occasions you can use it for.


GDT for Cute N Crafty

Today I am excited to share that I was invited to be a Guest Designer for challenge #22 over at the Cute N Crafty Challenge blog. The sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles and I chose to work with Mice Love Roses.


Look for the magic

Scrappers Delights returned last month with the progressive challenge in the Scrappers Delights Facebook group. Today we start a new challenge for March and you will receive the new freebie if you participated in February. You can also participate on the new Challenge Blog.

I decided that my art journal needed some love and this was the right image to head there with. I created a page for my disc bound journal out of Canson XL Watercolor paper. I smooshed some Memento Tuxedo black ink onto my glass mat and sprayed it with water. I masked off the side of the page with the hole in it and then pulled it through the black ink. I did multiple passes and in various directions to get the visual texture I was after. Once it was dry, I applied the star through a stencil using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. I love how the oxide ink's chalky quality makes it sit on top of the background.


Friends

Since it is the first Thursday of the month, we have a new challenge over at Crafting with an Attitude. The theme is always anything goes, so you can pop over and enter your project there. This month the sponsor is Digi Doodle Studio and the winner will receive three single images.

I chose to work with this sweet Girlfriends digi. I composed the design of the card in Silhouette Studio, determining the placement of the digi and creating the cutout for the word "friends".


More watercolor pieces

You may remember my previous card that I put together with this pink watercolor panel that I had made. Using the left over pieces, I created this non-traditional Christmas card.

I ran the white cardbase through my machine using a Darice snowflake embossing folder. The die cuts, which are from the November Spellbinders Small Die of the Month kit are cut out of the watercolor panel pieces.


Scrappers Delights

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you will have seen a new badge in my Design Team section. I was chosen to be part of the 2019 Scrappers Delights design team and so here I am with my first project.

It is time for a new Scrappers Delights release and with the bundle comes this cute Aries Chibi. 


Sunbonnet Flowers

It is time for a new challenge over at  Crafts Galore Encore and this month our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. The winner will receive a $12 Gift Code for the Bugaboo shop. The challenge is always Anything Goes so head over there to enter your projects.

I chose to work with this sweet image called Sunbonnet Flowers. I printed her out onto Strathmore Toned Tan paper. There is just something about colored pencil on colored paper.
