Dueling Darlings

The 15th of the month brings us the Dueling Darling Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  This month Donna and Judy were the hostesses.  Since I am in the Dazzler group, Donna sent me a wonderful kit.
The image Donna chose was My Favorite Things Happy Hippos.  What a fun image to color.  She also included in the kit the Happy Birthday Circle Frame from MFT.  I think I am going to have to buy this because I think it is just adorable.  The paper is from the Paper Studio and then some fun embellishments that I was able to use.

Thanks Donna for a great challenge.

Newtons Nook

I was one of the hostesses for our image swap over on Splitcoaststampers with Kelly this month.  We talked and decided that our theme would be umbrellas.  I had this adorable stamp called "Newton's Rainy Day" by Newtons Nook and I contacted them to see if I could use this for my image this month.  Well they are just the nicest people over at Newtons Nook and they said yes.
After coloring this adorable image with my copic markers I decided to use the card sketch over at the Inky Paws Challenge Blog.  

Be sure and check out the other creations by our team at Splitcoaststampers.

Crafters of Faith Challenge

I must say that March 7 really came around quickly and I realized yesterday I didn't have my card for the Crafters of Faith challenge even started.  I looked at the challenge that Shelly the hostess gave us.  She chose John 19:28-30 which states "After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said, "I thirst".  A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth.  When Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished", and bowed his head and gave up his spirit."  Shelly asked that we make a project using a cross on our card and to use purple somewhere on the card.

For my card I found this beautiful stamp in my Two Paper Divas treasure trove.  I am still sad that they are no longer in business because they had the most beautiful stamps you will find.  The stamp set was called "Rejoice".  I stamped the image using MFT Extreme black and then cut out the design with MFT Cross Stitch Die.  The sentiment was stamped using the same ink and then I just used a corner rounder on the corners.

Thanks to Shelly for a great challenge.

Challenge Your Stash

Today is reveal day for a group I am in on Splitcoaststampers.  I am the hostess this month and got to choose the challenge.  Well for me it was easy because I love hearts so I challenged everyone to have a heart somewhere on their card.   I forgot to take a picture of the card I wanted to use to I quickly made a clean and simple card that has hearts on it.
I just cut out a heart on the front of the card with my Stampin Up Heart Punch and then used a small Spellbinders Scalloped heart die for the center.

This was what I intended as my challenge card but at least I have a valentine's card ready for next year.

PIP Challenge #1807

Time again for another challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge.  This challenge (#1807) is being sponsored by Digital Delights.

For my card today I used the stamp set called Celebration Owl.  There is just something about owls that are so cute.  
I printed off the image and then colored using my copic markers.  I added the celebrate die in red cardstock and as extra celebration idea.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out Digital Delights for your digital stamp needs.

Dueling Darlings Challenge

Since it is the 15th of the month that means it is time for our Dueling Darlings Challenge.  This month our hostesses were Kelly and Jeanette.  Their theme was "Something I Love".  Some of the things that Jeanette Loves are:
Images with umbrellas
Whipper Snapper Stamps
Using Found/recycled items on her cards.

The image is by Whipper Snapper called "Rainy Day Renee".  I had so much fun coloring this with my copics.  The sun and clouds are by Gina Marie. The base of the card is actually a Reynolds Cut-Rite Sandwich bag.  Jeanette said we got bonus points for using it.  HA!  Well all I need is a challenge.
This is the inside of the card.  I actually added the umbrella die for effect.  The sentiments are from LaLaLand (Rain or Shine) and Whipper Snapper (Friends are...).

I made the white card as an insert for the envelope.  What a fun challenge this was.  I was able to use every single item that Jeanette sent me.
