Owl be there!

Good morning everyone! I am back with a brand new creation for this week challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog. This week, we have a color challenge and our sponsor is My Favorite Things stamps. I love their stamps! They sent us images, papers, and ribbon to create our cards. Oh, about the challenge! ~ use brown on your card. So here is what I made, I hope you like it!

This card uses the super adorable Owls and Bluebells stamp. The sentiment is from the same set too! I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Then, I used my spellbinder scalloped square die to cut the image. 

This card has lots of layers on it. The brown, pink, and off white cardstock are from bazzil basic. I wanted to tie a bow, but it didn’t work for me. The bow was going to cover the image too much,  so I ended up folding it!  By the way, the pink satin ribbon is from MFT too. I love it, it is gorgeous!

I love to make my own embellishments like the ones on today’s card. This is a very nice way to add more color and texture to a card. Besides, they are so easy to make!  And last but not least, I sprinkled some glitter on the flowers.

Well my time is up…. I need to go back and continue packing. I will be moving this week and won’t be able to work on anything until I unpack my supplies.

Thanks for visiting! Please be sure to check TPE blog to see all the wonderful cards the DT has created for this week challenge.

Domestic Diva!

Hello girls! Today is Monday, and it is time for another challenge at The Pink Elephant blog. I must say that I really love this week’s challenge. I have finally created a pocket card! Yes, this is our new challenge for this week! So, here is my card ~ enjoy!!

This image is so cute and so much fun to color. The digital stamp is from  Sassy Studio Designs. It is the perfect image for this challenge, don’t you think? When I looked at it, I immediately knew that I wanted to make a pocket card to hold a recipe.  After I printed out the Domestic Diva image, I colored it with my prismacolor pencils. I must tell you that coloring the veggies was a bit of a challenge because they are so tiny.

For those of you that want to know, the patterned papers are from October Afternoon. I used my spellbinders die labels to make the recipe card. To pull out the card, I attached a button and some twine. And of course, I couldn’t resist adding a touch of glitter on her blouse.

If you don’t know how to create a pocket card, here is a link our card team coordinator, Sheri, sent to us. Trust me! These cards are very easy to make, I hope you will give it a go!

I think that’s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by… have a fantastic day!

Arigato ~ Thanks!

Good morning everyone! Hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July celebration. We had a blast yesterday! The children danced, ate good food, and watched one of the most amazing fireworks show in our area. The show was fantastic and it lasted for about 25 minutes… We also had live music!!!

Okay, back to the reason why I’m here today. It is time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant Blog. This week, we have a recipe challenge. We were asked to create a card using 3 layers, 2 die cuts, and ribbon. Here is what I came up with!!

Today’s card uses one the images from Whimsie Doodles. They are just releasing two new images today. The one I am using is called Miyako Cookies ~ yes, she is a geisha! Don’t you love her? To create my card, I am using one of the sketches from Card Patterns too. I love their sketches!!

The image was colored with prismacolor pencils. I used my clear glaze pen to draw tiny stars to decorate her kimono (the blue section of it) ~ hope you can see that! To make the rice, I used my liquid appliqué. I also made those little flowers!!   Here is a closer look to see all those little details.

Hope you can play along with us for a chance to win the new images we are showcasing today at The Pink Elephant. Now is time to hop over there and see the beautiful creations the rest of the DT has created using these awesome images. See you there!!

Thanks for visiting again and taking the time to write me your comments. I really appreciate your kind words!

Have a fabulous day…!
