Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #50: Bling, Bling, and MORE Bling

The Cupcake Fairy is one of my favorites. I printed her on Neenah Solar White and printed on my HP in fast draft. I colored with Copic Markers and used Stickles on her wings. I die cut and embossed with Nesties. DP is Stampin' Up. The flowers are Prima. The cardstock is Bazzill and Stampin' Up. The sentiment is Stampin' Up. The embellishments are Close to my Heart and Stampin' Up.

House Mouse Challenge #78: Sketch and Blog Hop

I have never participated in a Blog Hop but House Mouse Monday Challenge is one of my favorites so I'm going to try.

I used a Gruffies Halloween Image - stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White and colored with Copic markers. The DP is Little Yellow Bicycle. The cardstock is Bazzill and Stampin' Up. The sentiment stamp is from the Ink Pad in NYC stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa (go..if you haven' store). The twine is Stampin'up. The brads are from my stash. The flowers are die cut from a Tim Holtz Bigz Flower Die.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 47: Purple, Green, and Orange.

When I think of purple, green, and orange, I think of HALLOWEEN! I love Annie Rodrique and Kraftin' Kimmie!

My image was "Perfect Poison". I stamped on Neenah Solar White with Tuxedo Memento Black and colored with Copics. Die cut the image with Nesties and matted it with Nesties. The background paper as well as the embellishments are from Little Yellow Bicycle. The buttons and ribbons are from my stash. The cardstock is Bazzill and Stampin' Up.

Stampers Anonymous: Distress Inks

I was TOTALLY inspired at the Rhinebeck Stamp and Scrapbook Show on September 18th. I stalked the "Stamper's Anonymous" booth for most of the visit and spent tons of money and had follow up visits to all the local craft stores to buy supplies and Tim Holtz DISTRESS INKS. I love it and learned a ton at the Demo's in the booth. Below are my first tries........I'm still learning and working on my distress color pallette. A couple great stamp booths at the show also - I now have a huge collection of "Alice in Wonderland stamps. I used Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa. I also purchased Archival Ink in Black from the Stampers Anonymous booth - which also worked well. The embellishments are from Stampin' Up and Close to My Heart. The Flowers are Prima.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 43: Pearly Whites

Oh Blog....where have you been :-). It has been a long long that my blog background stopped working and I had to discover a new one. My font colors are not working but I will get around to fix. I have been scrapbooking quite a bit and have made a few other cards that have made it to Facebook or just into the mail but I was committed to getting back in the challenges - keeps the creative juices fresh.

Kraftin' Kimmie Pearly Whites: I love Kraftin' Kimmie. Darci and I have an order in as I type to get a few of the new stamps that are online. My favorite is DRUCILLA from Annie Rodrique. Just can't get enough of her designs. I colored her with copics. To get in the Pearly's - Shiny Pearly White Bazzill Basics, White Brads, and SU! Buttons. Cuttlebug and Nestys are my favorites these days - using deckled rectangle on my sentiment, a labels set on Drucilla, and an embossing folder on my background. Prima flowers. Sentiment is an SU! stamp set called Sweet Little Sentiments. I thought it was quirky and perfect for this image and card.
