Crafty Gals Corner Challenges - 3/18/2020

Hello, fellow crafters! And welcome to another monthly challenge here at Crafty Gals Corner! Today we have a new theme for this month - ADD A FLOWER!

For this challenge, we have the pleasure of Digi Doodle Studios as our sponsor!

Digi Doodle Studios
Prize ~ 3 Digi Stamps

I got the cutest little image to work with - Briar Berry Spry Fairy. Here she is:

I colored this little cutie with my Spectrum Noir color markers.  After that, I layered her with 2 mats in designer series papers. With the theme being Add a Flower, I added the white flower, even though she had flowers in her hair and my red paper had flowers. I thought it needed a little touch. :)

So there you have it! I hope that you will join us for this month's challenge! You never could win!

Thank you for stopping by!

I love the image I was given for this challenge! She's adorable! And her name is Chibi's Valentine from Scrapper's Delights. She was so fun to work with! I decided I'd make a fancy fold card. What a fun way to use this little beauty! Here is my card:

So I certainly have added hearts, don't you think? Lol. She's even holding a heart, the design paper is loaded with hearts, and then I have hearts standing up in the middle even! (Paper from Close to My Heart) I also used Stickles on her leggings and on the heart.

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - January 2020

Oh my goodness! Has 2019 already come and gone?? I can't believe we've already started a brand new year....2020!! I hope that last year was good to you, and that this New Year will bring you a lot of blessings! 

So for this Crafty Gals Corner January challenge, we are "celebrating" winter! Our theme for this challenge is: 
Winter Fun

And our sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize: 3 Digital Stamps

Wow! Did you see that the winner will receive 3 Digital Stamps as the prize? I hope that you will join us for your chance to win the prize! Now let's check out what I made for this month's challenge. I used an image called Penguin Friends.  I think the penguins are just so adorable!  Here's my card:

I love the sentiment for this card! It was perfect for the image! Although I'm not a big fan of winter/cold weather, cuddling is one of the benefits for staying warm throughout the season! (I don't know if I really need a reason to just hug, as I am a huggy kind of person

My card is pretty CAS. I basically just mounted her onto a card foundation with 2 colors, black and pink. I hope the pink is showing up for you ok. I'm working with 2 monitors, and the one is more pink than the other. 

I originally had her in blues, but for some reason it didn't set well with me. I like the pink better, in this case. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color her.

I hope that you will find this inspiration for you to join our challenge! Thanks for stopping in!

Miniature Sidewalk Billboard

Hello, everyone! And welcome to to my blog! I have another project for you, using a digital kit called Soda Fountain Shoppe Kit, from TaylorMadeCards4U! . This kit is the prize package for the winner over at Crafter's Castle challenge blog. Check it out!

Here is what I've created:

This kit gave me the inspiration to make a miniature sidewalk billboard sign...and it went on from there! I had a ton of fun creating it! It reminded me of calmer, less stressful days. I remember going into a shop back home that had a soda a pharmacy. Really, I do! And I'll always treasure that in my heart! Below is a link to how I created this fun project (my sister now has this....she wanted it for her birthday, so home with her it went!) 

Now here's the promo sheet for this kit:
My fellow teammie, Debrah Jenkins, has a blog on her creation....Check it out!

TaylorMadeCards4U Vintage Christmas!

Hello, fellow crafters! It's time once again to share with you a couple of new, actually....using digital papers from TaylorMadeCards4UFor these cards, I used the Vintage Wrapping Paper Kit and the Angel Passport Kit. 

I thought I'd try something a little different, using the wrapping paper set. I wanted to make a 3D pop up Christmas card. Here is the outside of the card:

 Now for the inside:
I remember as a child, how excited I was to see packages under the tree! There were 5 children in our there was always a lot of noise opening up those gifts on Christmas morning! And then we had to check out each other's gifts to see what we each got. And it was especially more exciting to see snow on the ground...time to go out and play! (Especially to throw snowballs at each other!) Which brings me to this card, using the angel passport kit.

I love the vintage feel of this card! I used kraft paper just to add to the vintage look of the card, and distressed the edges with Distress Ink Oxide Walnut Stain. Adding the twine around the edge of the photo, really added that final touch to the card. This is probably one of my favorite kits. 

Here are the Promo Sheets so you can see what all are in these two kits:
What a great time I had making these cards! I hope that these will give you inspiration to create some of your own. Be sure to check out the shop for more inspiration! And thank you so much for stopping by!
