Hey There, Pumpkin!

Happy Friday my Crafty Friends!

I'm here to share a card I made  for From the Heart Stamps- August Stamp of the Month Challenge using the super cute Pumpkin Pigwit


It's a progressive monthly challenge and it´s never to late to join!

 CS is American Crafts and DP is from my scraps. Love it when I can do that. hehehe

I used the awesome sketch at:
http://fromtheheartstamps.com/community/2014/08/25/i-heart-card-sketches-w-a-twist-no-77/

I colored the image with SN Markers and White Gellyroll marker. I just noticed his nose ran must have been when I put it down or from changing the ink in my printer???? GROAN...I hate when that happens. :(


I finished it with Buttons & Twine and orange pearls.

Challenge #209:
Something Old and Something New!

This was a great challenge for me to dig through my stash for my something old.  There was a lot of " Oh right, I forgot I had that" and "What was I thinking when I bought that??" & "Hmmm, what is this?" hehehehe. 

I did manage to find an Amazing Die set from My Favorite Things that  I don't use often enough...think it's been over a year. :( I also found vintage lace for my something Old. For my something new, I used a new stamp I haven't used yet and  bought some new DP..although my search did prove I didn't need any. but shhhhhhh! ;o)

Here's an Easel Card using Pure Innocence - 049 
From Heather Ellis- Digistamp Characters 

Here's a side view:
 CS is American Crafts and Recollections and DP is from American Crafts. 
Die are Die-Namics Blueprints 3 and Circle and Scalloped Circle from Spellbinders. Of course the Ribbon and Lace are the other Hidden Gems from my Stash Search. 
 
I colored the image with SN Markers and White Gelly Roll Marker. I edged it in Turquoise from Stampin' Up! and added Tiny Punched Butterfly Dies.

Here's the top:


Here's the bottom/Inside

I've had another fun and delightful Month creating with these 4 Beautiful, talented and Crafty Chicks.

August Challenge #2
~GLITTER GALORE~

(*THERE WILL BE NO BLOG CANDY FOR THIS MONTH*
We will be awarding one lucky winner a guest designer spot for the month of
October as well as a winner of 3 Digital Stamps per challenge)
I made a card using the sweet Necking Giraffes. I made this for my Dad to give my mom for their anniversary next month.

I used Glitter CS from Michael's. Thought it was perfect for this challenge and have been waiting for a chance to use it! ;o) Base and Layer CS are from Recollections. Ribbon is from my stash- another item waiting for the right moment to be used. LOL! Finished it off with a Sentiment punched with my Marvy Circle Punch and layered on Ironwork Accents Die from Spellbinders.

I colored the image with SN Markers:
I decorated the inside as well but used different DP (Recollections) as the Glitter CS would have been too heavy. 

I look forward to your creations this challenge!

Happy Craftin'!
