Authentique Paper March Sketch Challenge

3 Mar

It is that time again. What time?  Time to get on over to Authentique Paper’s blog and check out or sketch challenges and join us.

Why? Because they are fabulous sketches and you have the chance to win a paper pack from Authentique Paper?

Do you need any other reasons?  I thought not!

Here is the sketch I followed.

Here is what I came up with.

I had a blast with this sketch.  What do you think of those ONSIES?

They are courtesy of Jessica Weible Illustrations.

They are a digital stamp called String of Onsies.

Digital stamps are so much fun to work with.

I thought the onsies looked adorable in different papers from Free Bird, Blush & Delight collection.

I hope you have time to head on over to Authentique Paper’s blog and see what the other, wonderfully talented, design team members have come up with.

Be sure and join us on this challenge, you can’t go wrong, the sketches are really awesome designs!

Have a great weekend and happy crafting!

Some ADORABLE DIGI stuff!!

28 Mar

I have not had much time to play around with Digital stuff.  Now that I did these 2 layouts, I remember that I miss it!!

If you are here for the PAPER ISSUES BLOG HOP, Click HERE.

These are done with the kit called COLORFUL EASTER by Tatiana Pittigliani.

You can find her blog here:

http://pittiscrap.blogspot.com/

The best thing about her designs?

COLOR and WHIMSY!

She has a ton of both.

Here is a snapshot of the new COLORFUL EASTER kit.

Here are the 2 layouts I have done with the kit.

 

 

I purposely chose to not do Easter themed pictures.  I think it is important to show the versatility of a kit.

Obviously you could do a great Easter layout, I mean look at all those fun elements.

But, I did 2 layouts that had nothing to do with Easter and the kit was still great fun.

I hope you liked that kit as much as I do!

Head on over to http://pittiscrap.blogspot.com/ to see the other Design Team creations!

Have a great Thursday!!

Cheery Lynn, Goodbye Tiffany, Hello Tally!

18 Feb
Ladies and any Gentleman out there.
 
I have so MANY things to share with you today!
 I know you all are needing to have some Veggies, so let me share a couple of cards with you today.
First, here is our favorite duo, Bob and Larry.
What I love about the VEGGIE TALES dies, is the detail each character has.
Look at Larry’s teeth and Bob’s stem. These fine details, really set these dies apart from others.



Here is a fun way to use PA GRAPE. Can’t you just hear him sayin‘ “Who are ya callin‘ old?”

 



Over the next couple of weeks, I will share cards from a 6 card set I have made with the Veggie Tales characters.

I challenged myself to make a whole set and have them all coordinate with each other. To do this, I precut many pieces of paper all from the same print, gathered all my supplies and went to work. This is a great way to get a lot of cards done at one sitting.

OH!  That reminds me, did you notice I am the Cheery Lynn Friday girl?

 Also next Friday, I have a special treat for you.

 I have this project DONE, but “conditions” have not been right for the photo shoot. But, how about a mini teaser? OK! Great idea…

Here is a snippet!

 

HMMM, what can that be?

But you’ll have to come back next Friday for the real thing.

Moving on…Here is a card I did this week.  I did this for Tally Scrapper.  I used all Cheery Lynn Dies on this card.

You will be seeing a lot of things I am doing on TALLY SCRAPPER, since I have joined up on the SURVIVOR CHALLENGE on the site.

I know that you are seeing Cheery Lynn Designs doilies a lot lately and I’m sure you all have thought about using our doilies for misting sprays and stuff, right?

Ok, good, glad we are all on the same page there.

This card I have used the ORIENTAL BUTTERFLY DOILY as a mask for some Tattered Angles misting spray.



What I did for this card was to make my butterfly base with the ORIENTAL BUTTERFLY DOILY, using it as a mask for the spray.

Then I coated the butterflies heavily with the mist for this patina look.

For my card base, I used the same mist with the ITALIAN FLOURISH DOILY.


In this picture you can see where the Doilies have left a nice negative space design.
 
  I embellished this with some of the DIMENSIONAL BUTTERFLIES, in the same color.

What a post, right?  Are you up for one more card??  Today on TIFFANY DOODLES the Bird Digis are up for sale.
Here is a peak at all of them.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Aren’t they all just so cute?  I opted to make a card with the Tufted Titmouse
 This is my last project with TIFFANY DOODLES.
  I have had a ton of fun with the TEAM.  I need to scale back on my TEAMS, to devote more time to ones that require more of my time.
 
I will miss all the DOODLE GIRLS!!!
 
 
Goodness, I just love this card.  I mean this Digi stamp!
 
 
Thanks for hanging in there with me today!  I hope you have enjoyed all my fun things today.
For now, this is Jeannie from the Polka Cabana saying Thank Goodness It’s Friday!

Tiffany Doodles New Images…..

Spring is trying it’s best to get here.  Tiffany has made some of the most adorable bird stamps.  You do not have to be a bird lover or watcher to enjoy these furry little ones.  All week we can give SNEAK PEAKS.  Yesterday the  Bluebird family debuted. 

 

Today the Warbler & Cherry Blossom struts her stuff.

 

That’s all I can show for now.  I have another 2 to show you, one tomorrow(Thursday) and one on Friday. 

I made a wonderful card to share on Friday bundle of feathers!  Please stop by to see the sneak peaks and come back again Friday to see my creation:)

All the Images will be avail for purchase on Friday, Feb. 18th 2011 at TIFFANY DOOLES.COM.

If that weren’t enough, she has got a sale going on too!!  Great time to pick up some Digi’s for that Library you are creating!!

Are you ready for a Tiffany Doodles Challenge?

7 Feb

Late post here.  Sorry, I have been at WORK all morning.    There is a new Tiffany Doodles challenge for you starting today and there are a few changes to note.  First, the challenge will last for two weeks.  Second, we want to encourage you to use your Tiffany Doodles images — a $10 voucher for the Tiffany Doodles store is up for grabs for a project using a Tiffany Doodles image. 

 An additional $5 voucher is up for grabs for any other entries (TD image or non-TD image).

So our challenge to you is to create a Valentine’s or love themed project.  Tiffany has some fabulous digis in the store that will work perfectly for this.  For my post today, I have made 3 different cards with the same stamp.  I use the digi stamp called STAINED GLASS HEART.

Here is my 1st card:

This was a joint collaboration with my 12 year old daughter.  I told her to color it in any color scheme she wanted.  After she colored the base, I added the glitters and the lacquers.  I think it turned out GREAT!!

 

Card #2 is just a “TOTALLY ME” card.  I love everything about it.  I used my new dies called Wittle Weavers from Cheery Lynn Designs, to create the base of this card. 

 

There are actually so many steps to making this card, I will not bore you with all the detail.  You can just look and enjoy it and know that I did indeed put A LOT of work into it!

 

Since I called my last card a ” TOTALLY ME” card, I guess I need to call this next one the “TOTALLY MINE!” card.

A lot of us on the Tiffany Doodles team think Mr. Bon Jovi is great eye candy, so this card is for ALL OF US!!

I hope you have enjoyed my Valentine’s today!

Make sure you check out the other fabulous DT creations.

 
Also, go by the Tiffany Doodles blog to read all the guidelines and extra info on the February Challenges. 
 
HAVE A NICE DAY!!
