Fall Wreath

A little fall wreath today using some stamps from The Alley Way Stamps.  I first stamped the wreath and added that cute bird at the bottom.  The leaves were stamped separately, colored, cut out, and added along with some amber colored sequins.  Lastly, the sentiment and wooden heart added.  The wreath, bird, and sentiment are from the Wreathed in Love set and the tiny leaves from Crazy Critters.

I'll enter this in the Be Inspired Challenge for The Alley Way Stamps.  I was inspired by the colors in the panel on the left - green for that tree in the background, orange for the pumpkins, blue for the color of the bird,  and the wooden heart due to the bed of the pickup truck.

Saving the Hooters

Stella is on a mission to Save the Hooters!  She's already popped over to Tuesday Throwdown for this weeks challenge to spread the word since the theme of our challenge this go-round is Awareness!  Come on over and play along with us and you could win a wonderful prize package from our sponsor Bugaboo!

You just gotta love Stella!  I colored her in Copics and then used patterned paper from Recollections.  I cut out a heart die and then added the pink in the negative pieces.  A little embossing, a pearl on Ms. Stella's dress, and the card is complete!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Pumpkins and Squigglefly

HUGE announcement - I am now part of the Squigglefly DT!  Great images, wonderful artists, fantastic design team, whoa.......can you tell I'm excited!!!

Our challenge at Squigglefly this week is to use pumpkins or the color of pumpkins on your card.  This should be easy with fall and Halloween right around the corner now. I used an image from Sandra Caldwell called Costume Witch.  What a cutie, right!  She's colored in Copics and then I gave her cape and hat some shine with the Wink of Stella Pen.  The patterned paper I used is from DCWV and the textured card stock from American Crafts - and then that little bat with googly eyes just had to be added.

Head on over to Squigglefly, see all the inspiration from the DT, check the challenge rules, and then enter your card for a chance to win!

Dino Birthday

A little dino card for one of the grandsons.  I think all little boys love the dinosaurs - no matter what their age.

For my card today I used several sets of stamps from Lawn Fawn - Critters in the Past for the dinosaur, palm tree, and sentiment, Life is Good for the sand/dirt he's standing on, and Critters in the Dog Park for the little bone.  The patterned paper is from DCWV Dots Stack.

I'll enter this in the Lawnscaping Challenge (Patterned Paper).

White is Not White

White is NOT white!  Ok, so this is white card stock and a white doily (gotta love the cake decorating section at Wally World!).  In the store, it really looked so white - slapped it on a card and it's not bad.  Took a picture and yikes!!!  Not white at all it seems!  So typical of something I'd do!

White card stock, not so white doily, red poinsettia with SB die, a bit of Wink of Stella clear,  gold glitter enamel dot for the center, and gold embossed sentiment.  That's it for today because I've just basically been worthless for the past couple of days and haven't been crafting much.  Sad, I know!

I'll enter this in Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) and A Gem of a Challenge (Clean and Simple).
