Pizza!

Over on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog is my inspiration project for this week. 


I used a number of products from the shop this week.  The image stamp is Ethel in Leotard and I paired it with Ate a Pizza.  I colored Ethel using Copic markers and used the matching die to cut her out.  I used the Nested Oval Small Stitch dies to cut out a background oval for her.  I also used the same ties to cut the edge of the sentiment panel.  I just threaded the paper through the die so it would only cut one edge. 

You should pop over to the blog and check out the current challenge.  You have a chance to win some cash to use in the store just for playing along.

Fairy Sweet

This week at Creative Knockouts we have an easy challenge for you.  It's anything goes, so we want to see your beautiful projects!


This is Fairy Scilla from Crafty Sentiments.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  Since she looked like she was sitting, I thought a nice lace border was the perfect thing for her to sit on.  She has a touch of clear Wink of Stella on her wings and gold Wink of Stella on the beads in her hair and on her shoes.

XOXO

Our new challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner is to add a heart.  It is the season of love, so we want to see hearts!


This sweet penguin is from Cute as a Button stamps.  He was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  The sentiment sticker is from the Spellbinders June 2017 card kit.  I thought it was the perfect match for this background paper that is from the Echo Park Yours Truly kit that is available digitally from Snap Click Supply.

You Got My Heart

As Valentine's day approaches, everyone is thinking hearts and flowers.  So why shouldn't our projects as well?!  At Crafty Sentiments our challenge to you is to add flowers to your project.


I used You Got My Heart and colored it with Copic markers.  I cut it out using a simple stitched rectangle die from Echo Park.  I thought the simple shape matched will with the fancier doily heart.  The paper is from the Echo Park Yours Truly collection that is available digitally from Snap Click Supply.

You're the Best!

For my Rubbernecker Stamps project this week, I am bringing you a look at one of the new products that is available on the website combined with one of my favorite stamps, Clare.


Clare can be used for so many occasions.  This week I have combined her with lots of hearts and a sentiment from the Best Friends Etc set to make a Valentine's card.  Pink and brown is one of my favorite color combos, so I used it for this project.  This die set, Nested Circle Scallop with Holes is now available on the website. 

Don't forget about our challenge.  You have a chance to win cash to spend in the store and with all of the new products, you won't want to miss out.

Flower Power

Our theme at Creative Knockouts this week is flower power.  We want to see flowers on your projects!


This sweet image is Picked Flowers from A Day for Daisies.  I think she fits our theme nicely!  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I plan to add a sentiment, but I didn't know what I would use the card for.  I will add it later.

You have a chance to win a gift certificate for $12 to use in the shop.  If you click the badge below, you can start your wish list.  It won't take long!  I know mine is a mile long!

Winter Fun

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our challenge theme is winter.  We don't get much in the way of winter and snow where I live, and I don't really miss it!  I do still love to make winter cards though.


I used Snow Ball for my project and colored it with Copic markers.  I kept it pretty simple so it would be suitable for anyone.  I have a container of little puffs from back when chalk was so popular.  They were used to apply the chalk so it would look soft.  Now they make great snowball embellishments!  I just got these awesome pierced dies from Rubbernecker Stamps.  They add a great detail without taking away from the image and I love the rounded corners!
