Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #247 - Signs of Fall

Hello, fellow crafters! Are you ready for Fall?? Well, we here at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges sure are! 

So for this month's theme, we are celebrating  

~ Signs of Fall ~

Our sole sponsor for this challenge is  

Prize ~  $10 Gift Certificate

I'm ready for cooler weather....but not freezing! I'm not ready for really cold weather. Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons (temperature wise), but my favorite holidays are Christmas and Easter. 

For this challenge, I chose some pumpkins to color...I love coloring pumpkins! This beautiful image is called Pumpkins and Sunflowers. To me, these are definite signs of Fall. Here is what I did:

I decided I'd try coloring this on some Kraft paper, just to see how it looked. And I do love the look of the Kraft paper! I used coloring pencils on this card. And then I used a stamp "sprinkles" with black ink. Lastly, I added the sentiment, Hello Fall. And then I layered the image onto cardstock, and I was done! Simple, yet hopefully effective! 

Come on over and join us for this challenge! Loads of fun! You just might be the winner of this challenge! But we see all of you as winners anyway! Just have fun crafting!

See you there!

I absolutely love my image from The Paper Shelter!  She's perfect for the Summer Theme! Here is what I did:

  The Paper Shelter

For the background to my card, I used Close to My Heart ink pads: Charcoal and Capri. I used my Tri-Colors to color in the image. For the paper, I used Paper Temptress (you'll find a lot of beautiful papers there!)

Though it's a pretty simple card, I felt that I wanted the image to stand out more than anything, as it's a sweet little image!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges - #244

 Hello, everyone! And welcome to our challenge! The theme for our current challenge is ...

~ Fancy Folds for Dad ~

 Our sponsors for this challenge are: 
(listed in alphabetical order)

Prize ~ 2 Digital Images


Last Minute Manda
Prize ~ 3 Sets of Digis

So I chose this cute fella for my Father's Day Card. Isn't he a fun-looking Dad? He is Using: 
World's Best Dad from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. Here he is:

This fold was a lot easier to make than I thought it was going to be.  I simply took the basic card fold size (5 1/2 x 4 1/4), added a mat to the top, then cut in half diagonally. I then measured my piece with the digi, and doubled in length so it would fold over the top of the card (seen in top left photo). And he was ready to go, once I placed a sentiment on top. 

I hope you will join us for this challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! You just might be a winner! 

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #242 - EASTER/SPRING

Hello, crafty people! It's time for another challenge over at the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog! I'm so glad you stopped in! This month, we have a new challenge theme, which is.... 

~ Easter / Spring ~

 Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Colour of Love
Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

* * * * * * * * * *

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

So for this month, I got the Valerie's Secret Garden from Colour of Love. She is so gorgeous! 

I love this image! She is so pretty and such fun to color! Using my Tri-blend markers, I colored her and the rest of the image. I wanted it to look springy, but for some reason I had trouble with my yellow on the flowers, so I just went with it. The sky background was colored with Distress Ink, Broken China. 

I then added the yellow mat with the pink mat under it, and used white for my base. I did some glittering over the image. 

I hope that you will join us for our challenge! We can't wait to see what you do!

Prize:  2 digis, 1 pad of digital papers "mini"
and the possibility of being Special Guest DT

Make It Green was easy to do! I figured I would make this little cutie into a monochromatic colored card. :) Here she is:
Mirtillamente Digi Stamps & Papers

Isn't she a little cutie? I used my Tri- colored markers to color her. Then I placed her onto a multi-colored glitter paper. It was perfect for this card. I then added the sentiment "I feel so lucky".

I hope you will join us for this months challenge! Many blessings!
