Papercraft Business Challenge #12!

Here we are, Challenge #12 already for Papercraft Business Challenges! And what a great turnout we had! Are you ready for November's?? Well, here it is! Our November challenge theme is: Anything Goes
(Optional: Christmas Animal – For an extra entry to WIN the prize).
The winning prize: Lawn Fawn – Alpaca Stamps
LFPrize
 Now, you might think that a Christmas Animal is probably a reindeer, or maybe a penguin or even a polar bear. But not so with my card! I have one called Christmas Kitty by Mary Smith of Createful Heart Designs. Here it is:
As you can see, I've used a lot of glitter on this card, including the stickles and the paper! But Christmas is glittery too, isn't it?? I used markers to color everything in (no, no Copics or Spectrum Noir...would love some, but...!). 
I love the glow of the fire surrounding the fireplace! I hope that this card has inspired you to join in on the fun!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges - Halloween Colors!

Hello, fellow crafters! And welcome back to another challenge with Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! This week the challenge is: Halloween Colours.  Our sponsors this week are:




Prize ~ 3 Digital Images




Prize ~ 3 Digital Images




Prize ~ $15 Gift Certificate

 While I don't celebrate Halloween, I do love the colors! They're such fun! So here is my card using an image from Lacy Sunshine, Rory's orchids!

 She was such a fun image to color! I thought the colors went very nicely with her, giving her an auburn red hair to go along with the theme. I used a Kraft card base, and hunter green and white cardstock to be the mounting pieces. My sister had given me some beautiful glitter washi tape, so I thought those would look great as a finished background.

I hope you found this to inspire you to create and enter into our challenge! See you there! And thanks for stopping by!

The Outlawz Color Challenge Week of October 23rd!

Hello, crafters! Well, after being absent for what seems to have been an eternity....I am back creating with The Outlawz Color Challenges!  There has been a lot going on in my life, and still happening, but it is time to get going again! So for my first project, I chose this cute little mermaid! But first, here is our amazing sponsor for the month of October:


Now here is our Color Challenge for this week: Shades of Blue


What a beautiful array of blues! Now on to my mermaid card:

She's such a cutie! The rhinestones below are really a brighter blue than what they show up as here, more like the ones above her head (I used those as her bubbles). 

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge! We love seeing all the wonderful talent out there! And thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner new Challenge #176-Fancy Fold!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to another fortnight challenge with Crafty Gals Corner ChallengesThis week the challenge is: 
Fancy Fold

Our sponsor this week is:


Prize: $15 Gift Certificate


I've got to tell you....I love The Paper Shelter! Their images are just beautiful and so fun to color! And yes....I am late posting, as we have just moved plus faced several health issues all around...but here I am now! *smiles*

Let me share with you my card. I decided to go along with a Gatefold Card. Since I don't have everything in my craft room yet, I thought that would be the easiest thing for me to do. Here it is:

I used the pre-colored image, which was a big help for me. I love the fact they offer that option! To make the gate fold, I cut out a 9"x5 1/4" cardstock, and folded each end of the long side at 2 1/4". This made the middle 4 1/2". I printed out the background and cut it in half, and put each half on the outside of the small ends. I then adhered my image to the front only on one side of the gate, and added stickles to give her some shine. 

I decided to make this Christmas card really fun, I added some deco foil on the sentiment inside, plus the background of the sentiment. This gave it quite the sparkle!

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! And have a lot of fun with it! Thanks for stopping by!
