Blackberries Nestie Frame

PAD_NestieFrame_tbuOk, so check this out — are you ready?? Pez-aDoodle Designs has this frame for Nesties 2 available for $1.99 as a digital download!!!! How fabulous is that? I really am loving that more and more companies are offering digi stamps — they are so cool! You get the image in two different size, so it is like a two-for-one deal!

I cuttlebugged my two layers – the Memory Box dp and the Pink Pirouette cardstock. I added a bit of handstitching at the bottom, and a pretty gold edged organdy ribbon — I really wanted the frame to be the focus. My sentiment is from SU.

Sorry for the late post today – I’ve been in a whirlwind today trying to clean my craft room (I finally got enough off the floor to vacuum!!).  Have a wonderful day!!!!

InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge!

ISS_Ariel_tbuThis is Ariel, a digital image from InStyle Stamps. Isn’t she adorable? I sized her large, so she could be the main focus of my summer themed card.

She is colored with Copics, and then I painted Shimmerz on her top and he tail. So she is quite sparkly in real life!

I didn’t do much else, except use little bubble self adhesive thingies in the corner. I had some random dp that reminded me of the ocean, so I used that. My card base is River Rock, and my matting layer is Blue Bayou.

Head over to the Instyle Stamps blog for all of the details on our challenge, what the prize is for playing along, and how you can get in on the action! Also visit the blogs of the other Design Divas – their links are on the right sidebar.

Spirit of Power

CPCM_CPC07_tbuI made this for last week’s Color Monday challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts Magazine. They have such fun challenges, and it is a great place to gather and chat with other women! They have a gallery to upload pics to, and all sorts of other extras like Bible Study, a Question of the Day, a General Chit Chat area – you have to go check it out!

On this card, I used two Our Daily Bread Designs sets – Scripture Collection 2 and May God Hold You. I used a Copic marker to highlight some words and some flowers, a white gel pen to add dots (I love dots), Nesties, and my Cuttlebug with the texture folder for the black layer. I totally enjoyed making this card!

I hope you’ll come and visit us over on the CPCM boards, and participate in the challenges! there are some for scrapbookers as well!

Beach Bunny

ISS_BeachBunny_tbuThis is Beach Bunny, from the InStyle Stamps line of Beach Time Fun Digital Downloads. Isn’t she fun??

To match the color on both the bottle of suntan lotion and the sun (both buttons I purchased from Hobby Lobby in a “beachy” pack) I got out my Copics to see what would work best. On the towel, I went with my darkest yellow, an highlight of brown to match the bottle.

I added an Imaginisce sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, to make the white space go away, highlighted with More Mustard just as my main image panel is. My dp is by Prima, from their Eire collection. My card base is Basic Black, to complement her sunglasses and the ink color on the sentiment.

Colorful Flowers

CPCM_NinaBFlowers_tbuAren’t these flowers gorgeous?? NinaB drew them herself, and you can download them for free here. This is one talented lady, I’m telling you!

I printed the image in a large size, so I could really highlight the flowers and the quote from Charles Spurgeon – it is a wonderful quote! The card base is one of the pre scored cards from a pack. To keep it simple, I used Basic Black as my highlight layer. I got my Copics out and colored the flowers in bright colors, and used a couple of DaisyD’s rhinestone blings to center two of the flowers. I really tried to leave it simple so the flowers themselves would be the focus!!

Fun with Lizzie Anne Designs

QKD is Blog Hoppin’!

QKD_You'remyperson_tbuQKD is blog hoppin’ today, in anticipation of the new releases coming up tonight! My card uss two of my favorite sets — Get Comfy and You’re My Person. I think that is the sweetest sentiment in the world!!!!

I popped the chair up on dimensionals and used a Copic marker to highlight parts of it. Now, I’m sure I’ve done something wrong with this post, like used a set I wasn’t supposed to — but with all I’ve got going on, I’m just thrilled to have made a card, lol! I can’t seem to get good images of the new releases I’ve made – they all come out blurry. So I’ll try again tomorrow when the light is better!
