Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hello, everyone! Today started a Blog Hop over at the Coffee Loving Card Makers site! And I decided I'd do my best to get in as many times as possible. They have 67 sponsors for this challenge! Wowzers! This is gonna be fun!


And if you go to JessicaLynnOriginal, you'll find some awesome stamps, even a free one! So you can join in too!




Now here's my project. I decided to make a note pad. A coffee lover needs something to take notes on while sipping coffee, right? This was absolutely fun to make! And Jessica's free digital was such an inspirational one to color!



So there it is! And I do plan on using it! And it is refillable! Yay! 

Thanks for stopping by!

The Outlawz Color Challenge March 21st

Hello once again, crafty peeps! Today began a new week of Color Challenges over at The Outlawz! I hope you will join us! And this month we have the fabulous 

DigiStamps4Joy as our sponsor for March!
This months prize is $10 to spend in their store!
Now on to our photo inspiration this week, which was chosen by fellow DT member, Jacqui!
Gorgeous colors, aren't they? And for this challenge, you must chose at least 3 out of the 5 colors. Here is the project I did:
I decided to do an Easter/Spring Basket. I thought the colors would be perfect for it! So I found a tutorial on YouTube and went with that. 

I used my Prismacolors to color up my image. The butterflies you see are some that I did using heavy vellum from the Paper Temptress, and the flowers were a part of a prize I won on Holley's blog. Here is the tutorial on the butterflies: Here.

I hope you will come and be a part of the Color Challenge this week! We love seeing your work!

TTCRD Challenge March 21st

Guess what time it is?? It's time for another new challenge week over at Through the Craft Room Door!   And this week we have Little Miss Muffet sponsoring us. 

Here's a little bit about Little Miss Muffet stamps:
Welcome to... Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
A little bit of fun in a lot of different ways!
Hi everyone, I am Barbara Sproatmeyer, aka ForgottenScraps, and I am the owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I love coloring and I love stamping! However, I think the best part about this is I get to share it with my own Little Miss Muffets who love to work by my side. Their personalities and adventures come out in the stamps that I draw, whether it is the day we roasted smores for the first time or when they discovered how high they could bounce on their hip-hop balls. They continue to be a source of amusement and inspiration. LOL
Little Miss Muffet Stamps began in January 2011 and I'd like to give a shout-out to my family and friends for their encouragement and support - thank you! I am also very fortunate to have a fabulous design team and I'm reminded of their talent every week when they show off their awesome creations. For oodles of inspiration, make sure to see what they've created over in the LMMS Gallery or LMMS Challenge blog for lots of creative ideas.
Little Miss Muffet Stamp products are created by myself and other talented artists including Bugaboo and Pollycraft. (For more fabulous images available in digital form, you can check out their sites.) I also stock a variety of other brands and products that offers you more of a selection and increases your buying experience, such as products from Raley's Confectionary, C.C. Designs, Make it Crafty and Whimsy Stamp.
Now here's my card: I used Polka Dot Pals Neomie Easter.  Isn't she adorable??

JessicaLynnOriginal Reveal Card #3

Hello, fellow stampers! Today is my 3rd and final Reveal for the Jessica Lynn Original Mason Jar set! And of the 3 that I made, this one is my favorite! I love doing tags...I'm sure I've mentioned that somewhere before...lol...and I love pink! Here's a picture of what's in the set: 
And here is my project:

Close Up of Tag
As you can see, I have sort of a Mixed Media thing going on here. I used my Silhouette to cut out the bottom and top layers of the tag. Then I used my Gelatos to color up the top layer, and then used a stencil to spread texture paste all over it. Before it had a chance to dry, I added glass glitter all over the top, pressed it in slightly (be careful! it's sharp), and then used my heat gun to dry it. I loved the effect of the glass glitter. I also used Glossy Accents on the buttons and the little garden home to give it some shine. The butterfly applique is from KPKre8tions and the pink background paper with the pink ribbon are from Paper Temptress
This adorable set of stamps can be shipped FREE if pre-ordered with the also NEW Hawaiian Vacation Brentwood SetBut hurry! Free shipping ends tonight! I adore this set of stamps. They are very well made, and the sizes of some of them are so cute! However, if you only want the Hawaiian set, it will be shipped free when pre-ordered, by itself.

Crafty Gals Corner #114 - Use Buttons!


Hello, fellow crafty peeps! It's a new week of Challenges over here at Crafty Gals Corner! I sure hope you will join us! But before I show you my project, here's a "word" from our sponsors! 😉

All Dressed Up
Prize: 2 Digital Images

Cute as a Button 

Prize: 3 Digital Images

To qualify for your entry, be sure to use Buttons on your project. It can be anything! For this challenge, I made a Wall Hanging. The image I used is  Sewing Susan by Cute as a Button. I love Cute as a Button images! They're...well...CUTE!
All the die cuts and the image were cut out using my Silhouette Portrait. That machine has been a lifesaver! The process was a matter of cutting out chipboard (any size will do...mine is 8x8), layering the top of it with designer print paper, layer pieces of paper over that if you want, coloring and cutting out my image, and embellishing it....with lots of buttons! Okay...maybe I over did it a bit, but buttons seemed perfect for this image!

Come join us for this fun challenge! And thanks for stopping by!
