Graffiti Birthday

A new challenge means a new theme and at Creative Knockouts our theme is Washi Wonders!

Our sponsor for our Washi Challenge is LeAnn's World 101 and the winner will receive two dig stamps of their choice.

I used the Print & Cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo so I didn't have to try and fussy cut.  I colored Clyde with Copic markers and used a white gel pen on to give some accent on his jeans.  The sentiment and splatters were from Scrapper's Delights.

I finally had the time and courage to try stenciling.  I retrieved my brick stencil from the depths of my drawer and selected Frayed Burlap and Barn Door Distress Ink pads.  All in all, it was pretty easy and I like how it came out.  And of course, the finishing touch - double layer of Washi Tape.

Programmed to Party

I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer at C.R.A.F.T. Challenges for their Male Challenge!

Their fun and fab sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Company Their designs are so unique, there is something for everyone!  They have graciously donated a $10 voucher to be used in their store!

This Whimsical Dancing Robot is Dancing Dave.  When my boys were younger, they loved robots and would play with their creations for hours.

I colored Dave with Copic markers and added Wink of Stella to the joints.  I decided to make a gate fold card and used patterned papers by Cosmo Cricket to add to the robot theme.  The sentiments were computer generated.

I hope you play along in this fun challenge and thanks for stopping by!

Underwear for Christmas?!

Well hellooooo! Today is a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is Anything Cute and Christmas with Optional Ribbons & Bows.

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge are our friends over at Crafty Ribbons!  Crafty Ribbons has an amazing selection and it's so much fun going through their collection of goodies!

I pulled out an old fave image of mine from Whimsie Doodles (so sad they are no longer) appropriately called "Underwear for Christmas".

I used Copic markers to color the undies and used my new Stitched Collage Frame Diecut to put the card all together.  It's the first time I used the diecut and have to admit it took me a while to play with it to figure out how I wanted to use it.  Now that I have the hang of it I've made quite a few cards with the template.

I hope my card gives you a chuckle!  Thanks for stopping in and I look forward to seeing your cute creations!

Gnome Hello

Creative Knockouts has a new challenge!  Our theme for this challenge is Heat or Dry Embossing.

I normally use my embossing folders however this time I decided to pull out the embossing powder ... packed in the far corners of my desk drawers. (Okay, truth be told - I got carried away with the background papers and assembling the card I forgot about embossing).

Our sponsor for this challenge is SheepSki Designs and they are generously donating 3 images to the winner!

This gnome image is Giant Mushroom.  I used my copic markers to color the image, following the colors in the background papers by Photo Play Paper "Tulla & Norbert" Collection.  The sentiment is heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope to see you creations linked up at Creative Knockouts Challenge!

Hello! Creatalicious Challenge Time!  Our theme for this challenge is Pink and Purple!  What a combo!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Leslie Turner from Love 2 Scrap.  Leslie has a fab goodie bag for the winner, check it out here.

This image is my new fave stamp from Stamping Bella, Mochi Donut Girl.

I used Copic markers to color the image with purples and pinks and the sparkles with green to match the stripes on the paper.  The paper is from Erin  Bradley Designs on Etsy.  I loved, loved, loved coloring this image!  The sentiment is one that I've had for a long time and this is the first time I've used it, it's from Rubbernecker Stamps - I know the sentiment references cookies however I was going for the angle that cookies weren't doing the job so she decided on donuts instead (hee hee).

Our design team has some great pink and purple creations, make sure you check them out and leave them some love!
