A New Joint Challenge from The Cheerful Stamp Pad and Lunagirl Moonbeams Challenge Blogs.

We at The Cheerful Stamp Pad are joining with Lunagirl Moonbeams for a challenge of Marie Antionette, The sponsor is Lunagirl Digital Images take a look at what they have to offer.  I picked a collage sheet that had fancy portraits, they were the perfect size for ATCs (artist trading cards)


First I trimmed the image and added some spica glitter pen to the flowers, layered it on a scrap of gold that was on my desk. The base of the ATC is a Fleur dis lis die-cut from spellbinders then finished it with a couple of pearls (also on the desk) sure glad I had so much stuff on my desk or this wouldn't have gone as quick as it did. (struggling still with the Friday deadline)

Thanks for visiting today and don't forget if you have a project to add to The Cheerful Stamp Pad you can also add it to Lunagirl Moonbeams so you have a two chances to win.

Happy Canada Day!!!

I signed up for a Canada Day Cards blog hop....lots of prizes too at Paper Garden  head over there and look at all the Canada Day cards some bloggers have made and vote for your favourite one too. My idea was to use my Canada Day stamp from High Hopes, I think it's retired now but it wasn't in the drawer with my cling mount stamps or on the stand that holds some too I probably took it to the lake last year and it's still in a box that has not been unpacked. So  went for a second idea and just used red.



I have made an A2 center step card and a poppy stamp I punched 6 maple leaves to add to the sides of the card.
Here is the Canada Day image I used in 2011



I am adding this to Canada Day Cards at Paper Garden

Thanks for visiting on this July 1st holiday and now I would like you to leave a comment (please) and then go to this LINK and VOTE for the card you like (hope it's mine) There are prizes.WooHoo.

Challenge #208 Baubles, Buttons and Bows

Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post scroll down or click HERE.

Shopping Our Stash has an awesome challenge I hope you are ready to take the challenge as it is Baubles, Buttons and Bows. No single rhinestones, no enamel dots, to define a Bauble is something you found and thought that might look good on a card one day such as part of a broken earring  does this make sense? I hope so.....the Bauble on my card is a rhinestone heart that at one time was on a key chain or a necklace, my hubby found it on the beach with his metal detector. I have a jar of such items that can be used. I also combined it with a bow. So don't forget to check our all the rules for entering the challenge and take a look at what the other design team has created.


Talk about using my stash, the image was left over from another card and it is from Lunagirls  check out their collage sheets. the Happy Birthday I cut for another card but didn't use it and of course the bauble from the beach find jar. I embossed the background with a butterfly folder.


Here is my Bauble and Bow


I used the tulip border embossing folder and one of my oldest Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today and dig out those Baubles, Buttons and Bows and join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash.

Second Week of "My Style" challenge at Clear it Out Tuesday

Clear it Out Tuesday  continues the "My Style" challenge stash item is your favourite crafting item. As you know I love using die cuts to frame my coloured images and I used one of my first spellbinder dies I bought and that is Circles, I also love using embossing folders.  The sponsor for the challenge is Lacy Sunshine check out the new releases they are awesome.  I didn't use a new release I used a digi I won when I entered a challenge at their challenge blog, it's the first time I have coloured her up.

As you see I used another favourite colour combo I just love blue and lime green together, I used a combination of Spectrum noir and copic markers  and I am hoping you can see I did a cloudy sky with some chalks and my finger.

W is for Wine ~~~ The Reason for Living at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Happy Saturday!!! Do you know what time it is? Yes it's time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers W is for Wine.....the reason for living.  I like a glass of white wine with dinner occasionally  my new favourite is an Ontario wine from Inniskillin Estate winery, it's a late autumn Riesling.  I found a great image at SLS lines just perfect for this challenge.


Since the challenge was wine I used the wine colour for the accents, the flowers were on my table, I don't even know why they were sitting there as they were the only flowers I brought with me to the cottage, So far so good this week I have had everything I have needed to craft, I keep finding more I might need here.

The Shoes challenge continues at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.

Here I am with a post for Week 2 of "Shoes" at the Cheerful Stamp Pad,  I missed making a project for the first week, I am not even sure what happened except with changing to Fridays I'm a little more challenged at getting things done,  I'm sure I will get a handle on it soon, The sponsor for the challenge is Lunagirl, I used a section of the shoes collage sheet and made an ATC (artist trading card) I found a cute saying so printed it small enough to snip it into little rectangles to add along the side....so now lets see what you think.



I layered the image on gold glitter paper then on a black scalloped layer, added the sentiment down the left side and a rhinestone on the right.
The sentiment is rather funny for me as I only have 6 pair of shoes....one for the gym, one for walking, two sandals, and two pair on dress shoes one for winter and one for summer. I'm sure the sentiment does work for a lot of people out there. 

Thanks for joining me today and lets see those projects with "shoes".

Challenge #207 ~~~ For the Boys

Looking for my Clear it Out post, scroll down or click HERE.


Shopping Our Stash  has a new challenge and it's For the Boys....make a masculine card. Well we all know how stressful it is to make cards for men, they don't like hearts, flowers or fussy stuff so what do you do? Here is what I did for the challenge.


I can't remember who's digi this is it's one I have had for a couple of years, the patterned paper is from a paper pad I bought at the dollar store, I tilted the image and the blue rectangle and added three white brads to look like golf balls.


The inside without a sentiment as they are all at home and I'm at the cottage. I used the Top Note sizzix  die and used some left over patterned paper, the circles are made with a border punch.

Thanks for stopping by today and lets see those masculine cards.
