Twofer Card Challenge - Birds

The current challenge at Twofer is birds.  I have quite a few bird stamps, but the WPlus9 stamps I used for my 2 cards always put a smile on my face so I decided to use them for my cards.  Hope you get a smile too:

I saw a T-shirt with a similar design and though why not put this on a card.  Ha!  Would make a good card for someone getting a new laptop or cell phone :)

Another fun card, just a happy card to give to someone to put a smile on their face :)

So happy you stopped by today.

Library Challenge - Absolute Beginners

Absolute Beginners by Colin Macinnes is the book given for inspiration at the Library Challenge and I was inspired by the book's cover (see below) to make my card.  The stamp is from Stampin' Up, Mediterranean Moments.  I embossed the background and distressed it with distress inks, then layered my image on red handmade paper.  The image is colored with my new Arteza watercolor pencils.

A chilly day in Sedalia today, thanks for stopping by :)

Back to Basics & Beyond - #19 Shaped Card

We have a new challenge at Back to Basics & Beyond , challenge #19 - Shaped card.  You can use any shape you'd like just not a square or a rectangle.

For my first design team card, I chose a mason jar template as the shape.  I stamped my image and colored it with Arteza watercolor pencils.  Then I added a shell die cut, some pearls and a silver ribbon.

Items used:
Shape - Mason jar
Stamp - Technique Junkies Mermaid on Rock
Die - Tutti designs seashell corner
Arteza watercolor pencils

Please hop over to the challenge to see the inspiring creations by the other DT members and remember to have some fun.

So happy you stopped by today :)

Our challenge this week at City Crafter is hosted by Marina.  We would like everyone to use patterned paper to "paper piece" part of your image.

I used stamps from Stampin' Up and paper pieced the happy woman's dress with dainty flowered paper and Prismacolor watercolor pencils to add a little color.

Please join us at the blog and share your paper pieced creations.

So happy you stopped by today :)

Die Cut Divas - Something New

Continuing with the Die Cut Divas' January 2019 challenge "Something New".  Please use a technique, marker, die, stamp, element that is NEW to you in your project.  Please advise what is your new process or item in your post to qualify.  And of course, you need to use a die.

Bugaboo offers a $12.00 gift code to the winner

I used the Bugaboo digi stamp "Morning Coffee" for my card below.  Isn't she a riot and her little doggy looks so shocked!  I colored the image with Prismacolor watercolor pencils, added some twine and gems and a little sentiment to finish the card.

Please join us at the challenge for more inspiration from the design team and remember to have some fun!
So happy you stopped by today.
