Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #168 - Anything Goes!

Hellooooo, crafters! We have started a new challenge today. This week the challenge is: Anything Goes. And our amazing sponsors are:


Prize: Two Digital Images
 & Two Coordinating Digital Paper Sets 




Prize ~ The 3 Digital Images used by the DT





Prize ~ $15 Gift Certificate

Wow, how cool is that? Not one sponsor, but three! So let me share with you what I did, using Prom Avery from The Paper Nest Dolls

I really had fun playing with the colors on this one. I decided to add a crown to her, and used my laminator to put Gold Deco Foil on it and added some tiny rhinestones. I colored her in with my Prismacolors, but then added Stickles to her dress and the pink part of her hair (I thought that would be fun to give her a streak of pink hair). 

I used my Silhouette Portrait to make the stairs card. So much easier for me than using my hands! I added a few elements (like the gold shoes and also a sentiment).

I hope that you will join us for this bi-monthly challenge! It's always a treat to see all the wonderful talent out there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge June 19, 2018

Hello once again, fellow crafters! I'm here to share with you this week's The Outlawz Color Challenge and my project! First off, a big THANK YOU to Digistamps4Joy for sponsoring this week's challenge! The winner for this month will receive a $10 Gift certificate to the store! So be sure to enter for your chance to win!



Now, before I show you what I did for this week's inspiration, here is this week's color board:
What a beautiful board to play with! This week's twist is: Add a Circle! Now let me show you the card I made:
For the life of me, I cannot find where I got this image. I searched and searched, and found no watermark or signature. So if you recognize it, please let me know by sending me a link to their site! 

As you can see, my main colors are the turquoise, the green, and the lilac colors. And I do have a circle, it's just scalloped! If you look closer, I did an embossing with dragonflies within little circles. Pretty cool, I thought!

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge! Let's see what you'll do with the twist!

Outlawz Color Challenge June 5th, 2018!

Hello once again, fellow crafters! I'm here to share with you this week's The Outlawz Color Challenge and my project! First off, a big THANK YOU to Digistamps4Joy for sponsoring this week's challenge! The winner for this month will receive a $10 Gift certificate to the store! So be sure to enter for your chance to win!


This week's inspiration is a great Tic Tac Toe board to follow! 
For my card, I chose the 3rd column on the left: Die Cutting, Yellow, and an Animal. So with that, I decided to use the Bookshelf Bunny!  Here is my card:
Isn't that a sweet little image? I was going to use a white background, but the Kraft paper seem to make the yellow stand out better than the white. For my die cut, I made a lace doily out of yellow paper. And the bunny was perfect for my animal! Needless to say, you can see there's a lot of yellow in my card! 

I hope that you will join in on the fun! And thank you so much for stopping by! It means a lot to me!
Have a blessed day!

Crafter's Castle June Challenge!

Hello everyone! We have a new challenge for this month over at Crafter's Castle (#6)! This challenge's THEME IS: ANYTHING GOES, USING MORE THAN 1 FOLD! What a great challenge to work with!

We have the amazing AMB Illustrations for our sponsor this month! They're giving the winner 3 Single Packs from their store! How cool is that!? Please visit their Etsy shop to see all the wonderful printable papers and clipart they have. https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMBillustrations
Now on to my project: I was thinking that I wanted to do something special and different for these beautiful digital papers. Let me tell you, when I printed them out, they looked just like paper I had bought pre-printed. Yes, they graphics are THAT good! And I also decided I wanted to make it a 3D project...hence, I came up with a 3D Platform Stiletto Shoe! But to get more details about my project, check out my YouTube Video!

Papercraft Business Challenge #7!

Hello, fellow crafters! I'm so excited to share with you this month's challenge over at Papercraft Business Challenge Blog!  


And not only that, a prize to be given away too! Before I get into the challenge, let me show you what the prize is for this month's winner:
This die coordinates with the stamp set "Believe in Yourself". What a great prize! Now let me tell you about the challenge.

This month's challenge is to use your oldest paper and tell us a bit about it. You know how you have paper in your stash and you wonder why you bought it?? Or you bought some gorgeous paper and you just hate to use it?? So they've been in your stash awhile....I have some of that! My paper is at least 5 years old (maybe older, but I'm not sure anymore. Lol). It's from The Paper Studio and is called Kellerkurtz & Company. It really is pretty paper, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I like heavier paper, and this is pretty thin. And I still have a ton of it left! So here is what I did:  a very good friend of mine...my BFF actually...sent me this link to make a Six Fold Card. I thought this would be the perfect project for this paper! Here is my card:

Unfolded

Opened
Now, I have to tell you, this looked pretty complicated to do, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway. My BFF has a lot more confidence in me than I do! Lol. As it turned out, it was really easy! If you want to try this, here is the link to Dawn's Stamping Thoughts tutorial HERE.

You see the embellishments inside (the flowers and the bees)? I've had those awhile too. My sister had given me 2 sets of these. While I used one of them, I wasn't so sure I'd ever use the other set. So they've been in my stash awhile too (maybe 3 years). So I put them onto my paper and colored them in with my Ohuhu markers.

I hope that you will join us in the challenge! When you do enter, be sure you read the rules! In this new challenge, we need to know how old your paper is and what it is. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
