Dennis with a Sling Shot

FUN FOLDS is the theme for our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!

We have a fabulous sponsor so make sure to upload your creation for your chance to win a special prize from StarStampz!

This image is Dennis and is one of my faves as it so reminds me of my boys when they were young.  I used Copics to color the image and set to work on the Dutch Door Fold I found while scanning through Pinterest, Kim Williams has easy to follow instructions here.
I used oval die cuts and patterned paper from Hello Spaceboy collection by Prima Marketing however it's old stock and no longer available. This fun fold is super easy and super quick and will definitely be using this fold again.

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

Simple Christmas Stocking

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something SIMPLE" and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cute image.  

We are a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along so you have a chance to proudly display our Winners Badge or Top 3 Badge.

This image is is from the Yuletide Joy collection by Close to my Heart. This set is from 2016 and pretty sure it's no longer available.

I started by stamping the images with VersaMark ink then covered with white embossing powder and applied heat from the heat gun and card is done!  Easy Peasy and very SIMPLE!  I made many of these cards using all the stamps from the set (stocking, bell, start, present) with gold, silver and black embossing powders with different colored cardstock.

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!

Flower Frenzy at Get Creative

A new month brings a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges!

Our theme this month is FLOWER FRENZY Show us your creativity by adding flowers to your creation!  

We area a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along so you have a chance to proudly display our Winners Badge or Top 3 Badge.

To make this slimline card I used a flower background stamp Dainty Daisies by Whimsy Stamps, inked it up with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then applied Distress inks overtop to create the yellow/green background.  The sentiment and butterflies were made using die cuts.

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Get Creative Challenges for some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team!

Merry Christmas BINGO Style

 Super excited to tell you about a new Christmas Challenge on the "blog"...  Christms Bingo Challenges will feature a new Bingo card for each challenge and while this isn't your typical game of BINGO, you are required to use at least three items in ONE column.

We are a "just for fun" challenge where you will have the chance to proudly display our Winner or Top Pick Badge!

I decided on the "O" Column - stripes, glitter (paper), layers and twine.  I created two cards with the same design, one with white cardstock and the second using grey.  I pulled out some glitter cardstock to create the stripes and the "HAPPY" die-cuts. I used my Cricut Joy to create the tags (including the writing) then set to work on the assembly.  I think what I loved the most about these cards is how fast they came together.  

So glad you stopped by and I look forward to seeing your creations!
