Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 364

Challenge 364 - Stenciling

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Sparkle and Sprinkle!

Here's my card for this week's challenge.
I loved the images from Sprinkle and Sparkle and
I printed the sentiment on my card front and then
used a stencil from Fun Stampers Journey and added
inks to sponge on some Fall colors. I should have come
into a bit further, I think, but I was afraid to mess it up. lol
I colored my Nuthatch and leaves using some fall colored
Copics. I fancy cut it and added some mounting tape to 
raise it up for some needed dimension.

PIP Challenge 1741

Challenge 1741
All PIP challenges are ANYTHING GOES!

So just get your cards ready and...
Head over and join in the fun NOW!

So happy to have Di's Digis as our sponsor this week!
They have some fun and beautiful designs! 
Be sure to check them out!

Here's my card!
This card was super fun to make because I got the image
from Gina K. at her store, Village Paper and Ink. There was
a Coloring Challenge Road Trip, with Kathy Racoosin. This
was one of the images we were given to try a couple of 
different techniques on. The dotting on the petals was a 
new idea for me but I liked how it looks! I used a white 
gel pen to dot around the center of the flower and that 
just seemed to make it pop! Another tip I'll use again. 
I colored the entire image with Copic markers. Including 
the background behind the flowers and leaves. I used 
colors BV20s. It was a totally different color idea for me. 
I used a "thanks" die cut in the same cardstock as my
back layer. This card will go to the friend whose car we
used to get the Gina K.s. Thanks, Gerri!!!

So just get your cards ready and...
Head over and join in the fun NOW!

So happy to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
They have some fun stamps and die cuts! 
Be sure to check them out!

Here's my card!
I love Newton's Nook stamps and since it's football season,
AND I'm a Green Bay Packers fan, this stamp set was just
the thing to create a birthday card for my hubby...next year!
I used a Fun Stampers Journey stencil to make my background.
I just held the stencil in place, using washi tape, and sponged
on my green and gold inks. It creates a fabulous background
very easily! Then I stamped my little "Packer" bear and 
colored him using Copic markers and cut him out. I stamped
the sentiment, and colored it, then embossed the upper part
of the white panel. I attached all my layers then added my 
little football buddy, using mounting tape to raise him up.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 362

Challenge 362 - More than one fold

Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Sugar Pea Designs!
Here's my card for this week's challenge.
I love Sugar Pea Designs and this little set is one of my 
faves! This card is a Z Fold and ideal for my tin can talking
girls! I paper pieced their dresses and used Copics for all
the other coloring. I cut the girls out and ran a piece of
black twine from one to the other. I just layered some
embossed colored cardstock and completed the card.

I printed this cute little image, "Rocky Goes Fishing" and

birthday card. I may have to save it for my hubby's next 
birthday...in MAY! I raised the sentiment and image using

I wrapped a bit of twine around the sentiment and added
a cute little fish charm to it to complete the card.

Some Crafter's Companion Creativity

Crafter's Companion has some awesome card kits that
are simple and require little to make stunning cards.
Now, I love having a bit more of a person touch, like 
my own stamping or coloring, but these kits are just so
lovely! The quality of cardstock is top notch! Here are 
two that I made. Can't remember exactly which kit, or 
if I combined product from both of them, but, regardless,
they turned out very pretty. I am waiting for some of the
Crafter's Companion Luxury cardstock in gold to really
step up the elegance! Thanks for stopping!

banner and the image. I embossed the background
paper and added some coordinating pattern papers.

matching Copic pearls and added them to complete
