Layer it up at Creatalicous Challenges

It's challenge time over at Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes and here's the twist ... we want you to "Layer it Up".

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fabrika Fantasy and the lucky winner will receive three (3) images of their choice!

This darling image is Betta Fish Crowntail.  I colored her up with copic markers and added some sparkle with my spica markers and used a white gel pen for some added detail.  To add a bit of bling, I used purple glitter paper to layer the image, added an purple embossed layer with additional layers of turquoise.


Now it's your turn to show us your layers.  Make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration.  Have fun and thanks for stopping by!



Prize:  Three (3) digi images

Espresso Yourself with Border Time

It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is Border Time.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sparkle N Sprinkle and the lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate for use on anything in the store!



I chose to work with Espresso Yourself for this challenge.  What I love about this digi set is it's quick and easy to use, great for making a few cards at a time.  For my border I used two tag die cuts together to create the border in the middle.  I added some red twine to match the cup, easy peasy!

Make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team then it's your turn to start creating!

HD in da Hood at Creative Knockouts

Other than a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts, I'm super excited that I have been invited to join their design team!  I look forward to new challenges with this team and hope to see many of you playing along!

Our challenge theme is Embossing Delight (dry or wet).This is a great way to add some dimension and depth to your creations. Our sponsor is Little Miss Muffet Stamps and the winner of this challenge will win a $6 voucher.



I chose to work with "HD in da Hood" from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and have to admit his jumpsuit "cracks" me up.  Thanks to Jennifer Dove at Just4Fun Crafts I came across this image and had to have it.  Her coloring amazes me so I tried to follow her techniques on the wall ... I need practice! I used an embossing folder for the footprint background with some Black Soot Distress Ink and glitter spray.

Make sure to link your embossed creations over at Creative Knockouts for a chance to win! Thanks for stopping by and have fun!

Spooktacular Creatalicious Challenges #149

I love Halloween and was so excited our challenge at Creatalicious Challenges is Anything Goes with optional PURPLE - now if that doesn't scream Halloween!!!  Of course, you do not have to create a Halloween card, anything purple will do!



I used my copic markers, along with glossy accents and stickles on the image (unfortunately I cannot remember where I purchased this image so I'm unable to direct you there) and the sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creation!

Smiley Thank You

Working with polka-dots always makes me smile and as you can see from this image, it's full of smiles!


This image is called Smiles and was from Cre8tive Hands.  I colored the image with copic markers and added glossy accent to the teeth.  I used by Banner diecut, added some twine and a thank you stamp and voila!

I hope this card brings a smile to your face and puts a little bit of happiness in your day!
