The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge 7/22

Another Wednesday and time for another sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  Our sponsor for this month is Make it Crafty.  My image is called Christmas Gifts.  Well, as you can see, I didn't color the gifts Christmas-y.  I decided to make it more birthday than Christmas.  As you can see, I rotated the image 90 degrees.  I used lace and a bling strip instead of ribbon and a flourish.

Black Recollections cardstock
Pink American Crafts cardstock
Patterned Paper by Echo Park
Copic markers
image from Make it Crafty
Miscellaneous flowers from my stash

Tuesday Throwdown Tic Tac Toe 7/14

Morning Peeps.  It's time for another fun challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week the challenge is a tic tac toe.  You can follow it just like you were playing tic tac toe with your friends, diagonally, across or up and down.  Use each box when you decide which on of the five ways you want to go.  For my card, I used the top row across - stamp, pattern paper and brads.  The sponsor for this challenge is Milk Coffee.
The digi stamp is Little Mermaid from Milk Coffee.  The color in her cheeks are brads.  I created the pattern paper by dripping Distress Ink into shaving cream and putting laying a piece of cardstock over it.  You can find a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here for this technique.  It's messy, but fun.
Materials Used:
Shaving cream
Distress Ink re-inkers
American Craft cardstock and foil cardstock
Copic markers
Wink of Stella Glitter pen
Want2Scrap bling
Unknown brads
Foam tape
Spellbinders Die Frame 7

Quilt Design

Morning Peeps.  It's the first of the month and time for me to post my brand new design team card.  As I said in my previous post, I have been chosen to be on the design team for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge.  It is a monthly challenge and the winner is chosen by  So, why not hop on over and join the challenge.

The only requirement is that patterned paper is used in the creation.  I have used both Basic Grey Marrakech paper pad and Jillibean Soup Homemade patterned paper (it's the yellow which doesn't show up very well in the photo) on my card.  I used a My Favorite Things Die-namics die, Quilt Square Cover Up, for my die.  The card base is Core-dinations embossed cardstock.  Ribbon is from Michael's.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.

The Outlawz Sketch Challenge 7/1

Morning peeps!  It's a hot day here in SoCal and so staying indoors in the AC and crafting is my bag today.  It's time for the sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  Our sponsor this month is Make it Crafty.  Since I only have the one image they supplied and there are five Wednesdays this month, I decided to use a Deedee's Digis image called "Party Animals" for my first card.

The Sketch:
Materials Used:
Deedee's Digis Party Animals dp, sentiment and image
Scrap cardstock from my scrap pile
Silhouette flower
unknown bling
I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut the precolored image and the flower.  Since the image was already colored, it was an easy task to just put the card together.
