Challenge #189 at Shopping Our Stash is From A Jar!!

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

You can use anything that is from a jar,  embossing powder, silks acrylic shimmer paint (I have some) twinkling H20s, and what I used is Perfect Pearls or you can just use a jar on your project. check out what the rest of the Design team has done for your inspiration…they knocked it out of the park on this one Head over to Shopping Our Stash check out the rules and see what the rest of the design team has done for your inspiration, they knocked this one out of the ball park!!!

As I said I used perfect pearls I decided to use them because they have been on the shelf for years feeling really sad. Those are the jars of powder I used and I see the brush as well. It was hard to catch the shimmer but there are more pictures perhaps one of them will show it better. I use versamark watermark ink to stamp the image on black cardstock then layered it on silver/black silver/black, wow lot’s of layers.
This one shows it a little better
This was one of my first sentiments I bought and use it for many occasions.
Another angle on the 4 X 4 notecard.
I tried another picture to see if it was better but I think you get the idea on how shimmery it is.
I was having trouble designing this until I decided to make the image the focal point of a note card.
Thanks for visiting today and I am looking forward to seeing your ideas for the Out of the Jar challenge.

Let’s see some Animals!!!

The challenge at Clear it Out Tuesday is Animals the stash item you must use on your project is Striped papers easy peasy right?  The sponsor for the challenge is Doodle Pantry, they have awesome images and the one I picked is Kitten Trio,
I sized the image fairly large as I wanted it to take up a large part of the front. This set has a lot of different images and sayings it is sure worth the trip to the store to look at their images, they are cute and reasonable and you can even get a freebie when you purchase.
Closer look at the kitten’s face.
Just like our children our pets become part of our household and I thought this was perfect to give to a friend that has adopted a cat/kitten. 
Thanks for stopping by today and let’s what animal is your favourite, don’t forget to use striped papers.

Mid challenge time for B stands for Bear

The Cheerful Stamp Pad’s Challenge B Stands for Bear continues for another week. Beary Dust Designs at Stitchy Bear Outlet is the sponsor for the challenge. For this week I decided to make a Christmas card, with all the snow we have around here I thought it might be coming soon. lol. Here is what I made…….
If there is a prize for using scraps I will get it for this card, the only full piece is the ridinghood red cardstock, all other pieces were in my scrap box. I coloured this super cute Coco Bear image with SN and copics added white opal liquid pearls to the hat and the foam and used star dust sitckles on the icicle drips on the cup> I fussy cut the image out and popped it up on the patterned paper. Punched snowflakes and added rhinestones.
Close up of the image, I punched a vellum snowflake for the cup.
The finished inside of the card using my favourite vertical sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you haven’t joined us for the challenge now is the time.

SoSS # 28 A is for Accident

Challenge  #28 A is for Accident
The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge you to make a Get Well Card. If Edna looks like this wonder what the other fellow looks like? Awesome picture of Edna thanks to our Tech. Guru Lee. Although it might have been a fun challenge to go snarky I resisted and made a cute one.
I used a House Mouse Designs wood block stamp (you can get it in cling too) called Colour me Better with Muzzy and Monica. I made a frame with Resplendent  Rectangles and embossed the layer.
I love to use my cute critters when I get a chance and this one is a favourite of all the get well ones I have. They are just like having chips, you can’t just have one.
I seem to have very few get well sentiments, I stamped this one on the piece that was left after I cut the frame.

I am entering this in:
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Friendship

Thanks for stopping by today, head over to the blog, see the rules and check out what the rest of the design team has made for your inspiration.

Challenge # 189 Inspired by a Movie

Looking for my Clear it Out post, scroll down or click HERE.
Shopping Our Stash has been inspired by movies and wants you to make a project inspired by a movie and tell us which one as we might not be able to guess it or we might be too young or too old to know it. A while ago I won a gift certificate from the Paper Shelter and saw an image that would work perfect for this challenge, it is called The Time of My Life. My favourite movie is Dirty Dancing. I was a little pressed for time this weekend and used the pre-coloured image for my card.
I saw the new sketch at Sweet Sunday sketch challenge # 256, It seems to happen quite often that a sketch comes to my e-mail in the morning I’m working on a card and it usually works with my image.
I had the perfect stamp for the sentiment on this card and it didn’t take me too long to find it either.

Clear it Out Tuesday’s challenge is any holiday and the stash item is Gold things. The sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps if you haven’t been to their store head over and have a look at what the designers have to offer. I chose a Connie Fong Spring Flowers image and she is adorable.
Using the sketch from The Crooked Stamper’s sketch challenge #1 I managed to use a lot of scraps. The only full piece is the white base, even the flourish was a scrap.The image was coloured with a combo of copics and blendabilities from Stampin’ up. The stash item is the gold along the one panel and around the image as well as the gold coloured rhinestones.

B is for Bear at The Cheerful Stamp Pad Blog

Challenge #105 at The Cheerful Stamp Pad  is B is for Bear and the sponsor is Beary Dust Stamps at Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet. I chose a cute girl bear in a tutu and here is how it turned out.
The image was coloured with copics and I found some pink scraps in the scrap folder along with the patterned paper left over from another project. This image would be perfect for a baby shower or a 1st birthday for a little girl. I outlined the ballerina dress and coloured the hair bows in pink spica glitter pen and added some pink bling.
A closer look at her sweet face.
