TPE Challenge #283


Happy Monday, friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. :)
For those of you up in the NE, be safe today!
Lots of snow and inclement weather, it's a good time to just craft.

Today starts a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant:

ANYTHING GOES

Here is my card using a sweet image from Saturated Canary:


This cutie is part of the special 2015 Bundle that Krista has in her shop.
There are five images total that are so adorable!

I paired the image with an American Crafts sentiment,
bling from Michales, and papers from my stash.
I also added some stickles to the headphones for a bit of sass.





Come on over and join in on the fun!
You can oooh and ahhh over more samples from the Designers
here at The Pink Elephant's blog.
This is also where you'll link up your work for us to enjoy.


Have a wonderful day everyone!
Thank you for coming by to see me.

TPE Challenge #282

Happy beautiful Monday everyone!
It's time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant.
This week we have a theme challenge,
and we want to see your LOVE cards.

Here is mine using the adorable Oliver from The Greeting Farm's Special Delivery set:


I paired this cutie with some scraps of paper, along with a fun tag from Michaels.
He was colored with copics, including his plaid jacket in which I attempted. ;)

Come on over and join in on the fun!
Click here to hop over to The Pink Elephant blog to see what the designers have done.
There is definitely LOVE in the air over there. teehee!
Have a lovely day everyone, thank you for coming by.

Shake it off!


Happy beautiful evening, friends!
So I am editing this post, because I failed to schedule this one on time last week. :(
This is my little shaker card for The Pink Elephant's challenge,
this cute Creeper is from TGF, named Monday.
(Yup, pretty much what I feel like on the first day of the week. teehee!)

I used some little micro beads inside of a Stampin' Up container,
that little bee happened to fall right in place from the cardstock. :)
The original rub on sentiment said "Be Mine," I just added an additional 'e' to it.

Now be sure to join us tomorrow for a new challenge,
I promise to have my post up on time! ;)
Thank you for popping in to see me!
hugs,

Black and Gold with The Pink Elephant!

Happy 1st Monday of 2015, everyone!
It's time to jump into those resolutions of getting crafty again,
and what better way than with a new challenge?

This week is a fun and festive one:


We want to see your cards using BLACK and GOLD (inspiration photo above).

Here is my card using an adorable image from Saturated Canary named May:



{This cutie is part of a 2015 New Year's Special Bundle from Krista found here.}

My resolution is to actually mail out these cards instead of keeping them in a pile,
and since I use plenty of birthday cards, this one came together quickly!
May is so much fun to color, her hair is just so beautiful and wispy.
I paired her with papers from Me & My Big Ideas Specialty Cardstock,
a gold charm, ribbon from Michaels, and a rub on sentiment from American Crafts.

Come on over and play along with us!
Gold and Black puts you in a glamorous mood. ;)
Hop over to the blog here to see the other beautiful samples by Ella's Girls,
this is also where you'll link up your work.

Have a wonderful start to your week, everyone,
thank you for coming by to see me!

I colored this cutie up with copics, using the no border technique.
I paired her with Pink Paislee {Switchboard} paper and Recollection paper,
Stampin' Up ribbon, a rub on sentiment,
and then I popped up her sweet flower and arm with dimensionals:


I kind of like her in grey and orange! :)

It's a 2015 Preview Day!

Happy beautiful Monday everyone!
I know we're not technically into 2015 until a few more days,
but The Greeting Farm is celebrating January stamps all week long!

For today's preview, I have an adorable addition to the Dollie line.
Introducing Dollie with Hearts:



For both of my cards, I used the no border technique
then colored her in with copics. Both sentiments come with this cutie!
I paired her with papers from Pink Paislee {Switchboard}
and embellishments from my stash.

Come on over to the blog to see what the other designers have created.
We are debuting new stamps all the way up until the New Year,

Give her a dolly that laughs and cries...


Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
I hope you are all snuggled in with your loved ones,
enjoying the reason for the season. :)
Today over at the Saturated Canary blog
the Canaries are celebrating Krista's lovely images for the holidays.

I decided to use a non-holiday (retired) image named Briella,
colored her up with traditional red and green, then gave her a pink dollie.
The entire time, Up On The Housetop was playing in my head. ;)

Be sure to visit the Canaries over on the blog here,
there were so many beautiful makes with Krista's images!

Happy Holidays everyone, have a wonderful day celebrating our Savior!

best. day. ever

Happy middle of the week everyone!
I am so excited to be sharing one of my new favorite images from Saturated Canary
that I made into a simple, celebration card:


Isn't Love Language ~ Gifts adorable? She has the sweetest face!
I love that she doesn't need to be just for a birthday,
you can use her for any happy gift-giving occasion. :)
I decided to use darker copics for her,
just because she reminds me of my youngest daughter.
She is paired with Happy Day papers {simple stories}
and bling embellishments from Michaels.
I hope you are having the best day ever!
I love this time of year where everyone is giddy about giving (and receiving - teehee!).
Treat yourself to some beautiful digis over at Krista's shop - you deserve it!
And don't forget to join Saturated Canary's Facebook page for awesome specials,
announcements, and a monthly challenge.

Happy Wednesday everyone, thank you for coming by!

Happy Monday!

Hello everyone and happy holidays to you!
I know it's a busy time, so I'll keep it short and sweet.
It's sooo busy, in fact, that I am a week late with my card for The Pink Elephant. ;)
This whole month of December, we want you to be inspired by this picture:

Oooh, so festive and happy!
You can interpret this any way your holiday heart desires,
using any stamp from any company, with any papers and embellishments. :)

Here is my card using an image and sentiment from The Greeting Farm:


That sweet birdhouse is from My Heart (adorably versatile set, btw!),
and the sentiment is part of Dollie with Gifts.
I added twine, MS punched leaves, bling, and a cuttlebug folder as well.

Come on over and join in on the fun over at The Pink Elephant!
We would love to see your creations for the entire month of December.

Have a wonderful day everyone, stay warm and bright! :)
