Papercraft Business Challenge #22 - There's a Bear There!

Hello, fellow crafters! This is the beginning of a new challenge over at Papercraft Business Challenge Blog!   This month, we're doing cards (or anything crafty) with the Theme of There's a Bear There! Such a cute theme, too! But first, check out the Giveaway for this month by Whimsy Stamps:
I have to admit, I don't do a lot of bears, so I didn't have many in my files. But I did come across a real cutie by Pickled Potpourri. And I totally love it! Now, I couldn't find a link for that bear in the shop, so it may have been retired. I've apparently had it longer than I thought. Anyway, I'm sure there are plenty more over there! 

So here is my birthday card: 
I call him Happy Birthday Bear.  I used my Spectrum Noir color markers to color him in. Then I used an SVG file on my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out the easel card. I basically just had to glue it all together (love the cut files!! ).  I used the pink designer paper from my stash that I got from Close To My Heart as a Consultant. (I recently joined up again....I really love their papers!)

I hope that you will check out all of the Design Team blogs over at Papercraft Business Challenge! There are some really awesome projects in there! And be sure to join us for this month's challenge! Thank you for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge - August 27th, 2019

There's a new ColoChallenge at The Outlawz! I hope that you will join us! We have a great inspirational photo for you, but first...here is our sponsor for the month of September (be sure to check her out)!
August 2019 Sponsor is

This fortnight's challenge is an inspirational photo with some lovely colors for you to choose from.
Isn't that a stunning photo?? As you can see, there's a lot of purple going on, but there's also a hint of some blues and definitely some greens going on! So this is what I created:
I used my Prismacolors to color the digital. Then I added a glittered background, placed that on top of a purple glitter paper, and then more layers. Plus simple embellishments so it wouldn't take away from the digital. 

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! We have one for every day of the week! :)

Outlawz Color Challenge - August 13th

Welcome to another ColoChallenge over at The Outlawz! I hope that you will join us, as there are a lot of exciting challenges for you to join! This month we have the amazing sponsorship of:
This week, it's fellow DT member Jacqui's turn to create the challenge. She chose  the color beige from this fabulous boat picture. All you have to do is choose two other colours from the picture to go with it and then add a twist of your own choice.
Here is the photo inspiration. Remember, you must use beige plus two other colors from the picture and then tell us what your twist is. 

Now take a look at my card, which I hope will inspire you:
Isn't that an adorable little picture?? My image is Kitten with Chicks.  I love this little image! I had so much fun coloring it! I of course used the beige, but I also used the orange and blue from the photo inspiration. For my Twist, I made an embossed sentiment.

Head on over to The Outlawz! We want to see what you come up with!

He was so fun to color! I went with the orange and yellow on the whole card, because of the yellow and black on the bee. My embossing is the sentiment. I used several layers, along with black because I figured that would help set off the rest of the colors. :)
