Your Next Stamp Challenge # 55

Hello and Happy Monday

I hope everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Today I want to share these cards that I created this weekend for my friends. Two of my friends I used to work with had a joint birthday party Saturday night and I created these birthday cards for them.

These cards are being entered in the YNS Challange # 55 (friends).

Both cards feature the Cupcake Cutie Fhina (cling stamp).

These ladies have two different personality and styles. So I wanted to use the same image for both cards, but make the cards to fit their personality.

Card # 1 (Brit) - Below is a close up of the stamped image. Brittany loves pink and bling, which is why I used stickles on her dress and cupcake & added some rhinestones. The image was colored with Copic markers and this is my first time attempting dirty blonde hair on an image. The pink card base is from a K & Company card pack. Black ribbon is from a pack of ribbon from Michael's.

Card # 2 (JLo) - JLo also knew at Jenn has a fiery personality, which is why red is a primary color for this card. This image is colored with Copic markers. I used red YNS skittles throughout the card. The card Base is Studio G. Pattern Paper is by Martha Stewart and the red card stock is by Making Memories. Faux stitching was done with a black ZIG marker. It's your Birthday stamp is from a Hero Arts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my creations.

Hello and Happy Hump Day. The working week is almost over. I just wanted share these too quick I cards I recently made with you guys.

Its a challenge for me to make male inspired cards because I like girlie products and its my style. I normally only make male products for the hubby. I managed to make a few male inspired cards. The first is a birthday card and the second is a baby shower card. I also managed to make these cards pretty quick.

Card Details: Die cut (numbers, letters, & ticket) : Slice (basic shapes & elements), Pattern Paper(DCWV: High School), green bling, memento ink

Card Details: This card was made using a paper kit I bought from Michael's and I added some Puffy Paint (white), alpha stickers (white), & stickles (red brick)

ABS Challenge # 26

Today I'd like to share a project using an Anita Be Stampin stamp for their Anything Goes Challenge.

You should definitely stop by the ABS Challenge Blog. The DT has created some wonderful projects for this challenge.

I'm entering this project into the Challenge using the ABS Cherry Sweet Stamp Set

Project Details: I have a mug where you can add an image into it, by un-twisting the bottom and slipping your picture in. I bought mine from TJ Max a while ago, but you can buy it from many different stores. So I created a Christmas scene using the Cherry Sweet stamp. The stamped image was colored with Copic Markers. This was a challenge for me, because I often use layers in my projects, but there was very little room for layering.

(Sorry there was no way to get the whole image in one picture)

Supply List: Stamped image (ABS: Cherry Sweet Set), Pattern Paper (target's scrapbook company), Cardstock (Recollections: Green), Flowers (Boxxer), Die-cut tree scene (Slice: design card :Basic shapes and Elements), Stickles (Ranger Ink:crystal, fire brick), Puffy paint (White)

Thanks for stopping by and you still have 4 days if you would like to enter the challenge.

Your Next Stamp Challenge # 54


I just can't believe its November 1st already. This year has definitely went by pretty quick.
To jump start the holiday season I want to share a project I made for the YNS Challenge # 54 - anything but a card.

Before I get to my project I want to share some Halloween picture's of Kayla. This Halloween she was Bat Girl. We let her pick out her own costume.

top: Bat Girl hugging her God sister at a Mall Halloween Event Saturday.

bottom: Halloween day Bat Girl amazed with the huge bag of candy she received at pre-school.

OK now on to the YNS Challenge # 54 - Anything but a Card. For the challenge I made a bookmark featuring a super cute little penguin from YNS.

This anything but a card challenge really challenged my creative mind, because I'm always making cards. So I was up for the challenge and to help me with this project I used my new

Slice from Making Memories.

Project Supplies: Black cardstock (recollections), Pattern paper, Snowflakes (Slice :Basic design & seasons), Stickles (ranger ink: spun sugar & crystal), Pink satin ribbon, Copic Markers, Puffy paint (white), Tsukineko ink (pink), Martha Stewart corner punch.
