Outlawz Color Challenge - October 31st

Hello, and welcome to my blog! Today I want to share with you a fairly simple and quick card I did for this week's Color Challenge over at The Outlawz. But first let me share with you the photo inspiration, then I can go from there how I found the awesome digital I used! Here it is:


Now, on to my card. First, let me say that since I don't do Halloween, I thought I'd go with the 3rd Row Down....Glitter/Purple, Green, and Fairy/Pink. Now here's my card:


Close Up
Isn't this a GORGEOUS image?? I love the delicate drawing! I had a ton of fun coloring her! Of course, I used my Prismacolors to color her in. And then I added a lot of glitter by using my Stickles/Glitter Glue in various places, such as her dress, bodice, wings, umbrella, and in her hair. 
I trimmed her with my rhinestone strand. At the base of the Easel card, I added a sentiment and flowers. 

And there you have it! Lots of glitterly sparkle, and lots of fun! I hope you enjoyed this card! And please join in the challenge this week! The Design Team have a lot of great inspiration for you!

Hi once again, crafters! We have started a new challenge this week, "starring" Dr. Digi's House of Stamps
Prize: 2 Digital Images
Blurb:
Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. Here you will find monsters, aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many many more wonderful digital stamps with a sense of humour.

Now onto my card! For my card, I decided I'd use Mood Music. This is such a fun digital to work with, and my family LOVES singing and playing instruments! So this was the card for me! Here it is:


Isn't that dog a cutie? He's really getting into it! Be sure to check out the upcoming online magazine, Through the Craft Room Door  for the details and supplies I used for this card! And come join us for this week's challenge!

SheepSki Designs Christmas Fairy Twist Card

Hello! Welcome to my blog! Today, I just had to share with you this cute little new fairy I got from SheepSki Designs, titled Christmas Fairy.  She is just so cute, wanting to touch the Christmas Ornament on that tree! I had a lot of fun coloring her! I decided to make her into a Twist Card. Here is my card:


I used my Silhouette to cut out the card shapes, then colored her in with my Prismacolors, used Distress Oxide (Candied Apple), then used glitter on her wings, around her, and the ornament. I pre-printed the sentiment on the top mounting piece before cutting it out, using my Silhouette.

I hope that you enjoy it, and thank you for stopping by! By the way, there is also a coupon code over at her Etsy shop, so be sure to check that out!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - #146


Hello, everyone! And welcome to another Crafty Gals Corner Challenge!  For this week, we have 2 awesome sponsors of our Anything Goes challenge! They are:

Prize ~ 1 Digital Image




Prize ~ 4 Digital Images

For my project, I decided to make a Tag this time, rather than a card. Tags are one of my favorite things to do. So I used an image from Delicious Doodles, Lovely Lillies. To start off with, I wanted to get the shape of my tag down, so I used my Silhouette Portrait for this. I chose a shape with 2 layers. I added a pattern paper from the SIL on both layers, combined them, and did a print and cut. I had already colored my image using my Prismacolors. I love red, so my lilies became the deep red you see Here:
I used all the laces and wedding appliques from the Facebook Group, Lighthouse Stop n' Shop (check them out...great prices) and the flowers in the corner are from Secret Garden Crafts. The leaf applique in the corner is from Kimberly of KPKre8tions. I used hot glue to adhere my embellishments on. 

So there you have it. A finished tag! I am happy with the colors of it...hopefully I'll get to trade it with someone soon!

Be sure to check out the challenge! There's a new one every week! And thanks for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge - Oct 24, 2017

Welcome to another Color Challenge over at The OutlawzThis month our Sponsor is

Our winner will get 3 digis from the store!
This week, our Photo Inspiration was chosen by DT Member, Jeanie (hey! That's me!). And here is the image I chose as inspiration with a Twist of FALLAUTUMN, using at least 3 colors:

I love this image. I thought it was perfect for this time of the year. So for my card, I chose to use the Fairy-tale Princess. I could have used the pre-colored image, but I wanted to go ahead and color mine....although I saw that it still was basically the same colors! Lol! Oh well....

Here is my card:
I tried to give her some glitter by using Diamond Glass Glitter on her shoes, fan, and bow, plus some Micro-beads, all from Reneabouquets store. I also added applique leaves that I got from Kimberly's Zibbet Store, KPKre8tions

I hope that you will come and join us for this week's challenge! It's always fun to try to see what you can come up with when you use specific colors!

Thanks for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge October 17th

Hello, fellow crafters! We have a new week for our Color Challenge over at The Outlawz! This month we have the amazing talents of Fabrika Fantasy as our sponsor! Cara, fellow DT member, has chosen this photo as our inspiration for this week:
Isn't that a beautiful picture? So irridescent, too! So for this project, I went with the Betta Fish Crowntail. I had the option of using a pre-colored digital, but this time I wanted to go ahead and color this little cutie so it would go more along the lines of the photo inspiration. Here it is:

As you hopefully can see here, the color of the fish represents those tones in the inspiration. I saw some irridescent blues in there too, so I thought the water effect on the background and on the body of the fish would be perfect for that. Also, the shape of the beads in the photo led me to using the circular shapes and the golds.

I hope that you will join us this week! The Design Team have come up with a variety of cards for you to be inspired by....many of which used the fish image!

Thank you for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge Oct 10th

Hello, fellow crafters! It's time for another Color Challenge over at The Outlawz! This month we have the amazing talents of Fabrika Fantasy as our sponsor! And for our Photo Inspiration, Kimberly Pate, DT, has chosen the following colors with the twist of "Fall Leaves".


Now here is my card, using the image Autumn Owlet. He is so absolutely adorable! Look at those eyes! I actually put some Glossy Accents on his eyes to give him those bright "owl eyes". Lol. 

Here is a closeup of him, so hopefully you can see his eyes look glassier. 
Since we had the option of using either the pre-colored or uncolored digital, I chose the colored this time just to give myself a different way of making a card. So rather than just leaving it at that, I also used some of my Prismacolors on top of the pre-colored shadows, to give more depth. I also used stickles on the leaves. There are 3 layers, including the one with the digital. I also added leaves, outlined them, and added a sentiment on my card. 

I hope that you find some inspiration to do your own card for this week's challenge! I love the color choices for this week, and I'm sure you will too! Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw
