Sweet Birthday Wishes

Good Morning - and don't fall over in a faint…I actually have a blog post!

I received some cute stamps from Your Next Stamp and wanted to ink them up for this session's colour and sketch challenge. I KNOW right??!!

I stamped and coloured little Miss Phoebe with her Wagon and die cut her using the matching dies.  I popped her up with some dimensionals- along with her little puppy - onto my card base - semi-following the sketch and the colour challenges.

The trees in the background  are from the set Forest Friends.  I die cut a cute little hill with the Double Stitched Hills.  The rectangle is cut with the Stitched Rectangle Die Set. - Love that stitching!!

I added a few little sequins and enamel hearts to finish my creation! - I'm almost down to the wire so I have to run and post this - what else is new haha!

DTGD Sweet Little One!

Hey there! I was totally inspired by this post of Jennifer McGuire's on "Copic Dot Coloring" so I had to give it a go - and I used her sketch - which, naturally, is brilliant!

Along with that, I am continuing with the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges for 2015 and this is for Sweet Miss Daisy's challenge.

I began by picking my image - this sweet little bunny from Your Next Stamp's set called Woodland Cuties - I use this set quite often for baby cards - so cute!

I lightly coloured him with C1 and then (held my breath) using C3 and C5, I made little dots where I thought there would be some darkening or shadows.  I added a touch of C7 - which close up looks kind of weird, but the overall effect is eye-catching!

Finally I "coloured" a few dots for some grass and sky to finished it off.

My circles were die cut using the MFT Stitched Circle dies - I love them!

I popped it all up onto my card base that is covered with a piece of Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush patterned paper  - just perfect!

Thanks for visiting - try some of those Splitcoaststamper Challenges - tons of PRIZES to be won!

Color Throwdown and DTGD Combo!

Good day and hello!

Another day and another Dare to Get Dirty Challenge - of course I can't tell you any of the details - but if you are a fan club member, you can find those challenges in the Dare to Get Dirty Forum on Splitcoaststampers - but it is a fun one for sure!

I CAN tell you that I have combined it with The Color Throwdown colours this week - gorgeous naturally!

I used Reverse Confetti stamps and Confetti Cuts - Love Blooms to be precise…..along with the "hello" Confetti Cuts !

I die cut and stamped some of the pretty flowers in Melon Berry ink and added some glitter to the flower centres.   The leaves are stamped in New Leaf - a gorgeous green!  I popped everything up onto a die cut piece of Papertrey Ink Damask Designs patterned paper .

I doubled up on the "hello" sentiment and tucked it in behind a few of the flowers.

Finally, I added a few little Your Next Stamp gumdrops - perfect!

Welcome Little One and DTGD!

Woohoo! It's that time of year again - Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are up and running yay!  I made this card for one of the challenges, which of course are top secret - unless you are a Fan Club member!  

There are tons and tons of challenges all week and PRIZES woohoo!

I pulled out my newest stamp sets from Your Next Stamp - Woodland Cuties and Forest Friends for my creation today, and followed this week's Your Next Stamp sketch challenge.

I stamped the background onto a 4 X 5 1/4 sheet of white card stock and then cut out the middle square using two of the square dies so I could create a frame.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the sweet little fox and popped him up on the square diecut.  Then I added a couple of clouds and some YNS Cotton Candy blue gumdrops (LUV!) along with a die cut heart- and the stamped sentiment.

Oh how I love this little guy!

Hip Hip Hooray!

Holy cow - this week's colours at The Color Throwdown threw me for a loop...... but perseverance is my middle name (not really - it's Joan)  so I kept at it and came up with a celebratory creation!

I used Papertrey Ink colours - Summer Sunrise, Royal Velvet and Limeade Ice, along with their stamps - Hooray!, Birthday Style Die Collection and the Good Times die.

I die cut the "celebrate" with the delicious Luxe Gold Adhesive sheets - oh my word - what a gorgeous pure gold - yummy!

I added some pretty sparkly gold gumdrops from Your Next Stamps along with the sparkly bows from my stash!  - I love a handy go-to sparkle!!
