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!

Outlawz Color Challenge May 29, 2018

Hello, crafters! Yes, I admit I'm a little late in posting my card for this week's The Outlawz Color Challenge, but life has just been really hectic lately, with illnesses and other things. But, I'm here now! And I want to share with you this week's inspiration! But first, this week's amazing sponsor is:

Image may contain: 1 person
Our winner will get 3 digis
 Now here is the photo inspiration for this week:
Aren't the colors gorgeous!??! So I decided to do an image from Fairy Tangle Art, called Forget Me Nots. She is one stunning image! Here is my card:
The colors from the inspiration were absolutely perfect for my card! I used all Prismacolors on her and then just added layers and embellishments. 

I hope that you will join us this week! And thank you so much for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #166-Anything Goes

Hello, fellow crafters! Crafty Gals Corner begins a new challenge today! This week the challenge is: Anything Goes

Our sponsors this week are:

Prize ~ $13 Gift Certificate




Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

So for this week, I went with the cutest little image with a lovely pre-colored background image. She is Wistful Emma from Fred She Said Digital Designs. What I love about this image, is that you get several options to work with her. But I'll let you go to the link and check that out, just so you can see for yourself! (*wink!*) Here is my card:


Since I'm still recovering from a battle of bronchitis, I made my card pretty simple. And with that awesome background, it made it all the easier to make the card. 

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! Lots of goodies to be given away for this challenge! And thank you for stopping by!
