The theme for this challenge is...Easter and/or April Showers

Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Country Road'
Hand Made Modern 'Neon Craft Twine'

White/Red Cardstock Paper

I made the card with white paper. Then I cut a small piece of the floral paper to fit along the right side of the card and a piece to fit in the center. Next I cut the polka-dotted paper to fit from the left side of the card to overlapping the floral paper on the right side. Using the distressing tool, I distressed around all of the papers, then taped them in place onto the card. I cut a piece of red polka-dotted ribbon and taped it across the center of the card. Next I cut a piece of red paper to frame behind the image and distressed around it, then cut it diagonally. After distressing around the image, I taped the red pieces of paper behind it, one on the upper left side and the other on the bottom right. Then I taped the image onto the center right side of the card. Next I glued three buttons on the left side, one on the center of the ribbon. Then I glued three flowers on each side of the image. After making a bow with the twine and leaving the tails long, I glued the bow onto the left side of the image, one tail across the top and the other down the side.

SHEEPSKI DESIGNS CHALLENGE #1 - ANYTHING GOES

Hello Crafty Friends!
I want to let you all know that there is a new challenge starting today at
We are all so happy because this is our very first blog challenge!
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes

Here's my inspiration card...
Using the beautiful image 'Dream Dress'
 Here's my recipe...
Digistamp 'Dream Dress' By: SheepSki Designs
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Neopiko 2 Markers - Used On Pearls and Flowers
 The Paper Studio 4.5'x6.5" 'Tattered and Worn'
Unbranded Deco Frame Dies
Paper Flowers and Flatback Pearls 
Coffee Stained Tulle
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Tim Holtz idea-ology Paper String 
Cream Cardstock Paper

 Here's what I did to make my card...
I have some bright lime green tulle but wanted it brown, so had my dear hubby stain it with coffee. It worked great. :) I let that sit overnight.
After cutting the purple patterned paper to fit the center of the card, I distressed around it, then taped it onto the card. Next I cut the gold patterned paper to fit on the left side of the card, then distressed around it and taped it in place. Then I taped the large frame die onto the top center of the gold paper. After fussy cutting around the image, I taped her in place. I wanted the pearls to match, so used kind of a cream colored marker to color over them. I also used the same marker and a purple marker to color the flowers. After using a small piece of wire to wrap around the center of the tulle, I glued it toward the bottom right side of the card. Then I glued the small frame toward the bottom center of the tulle. Next I used a piece of paper string to tie a bow around the flowers and glued the large flatback pearl onto the center, then glued the flowers onto the small frame. Then I glued the small flatback pearls onto the sides and top of the large frame.

And that's my 1st DT card for SheepSki Designs. :)
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Come join us in the fun!

SUNNY DAY CRAFTING CHALLENGE #39 SPRING

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
SUNNY DAY CRAFTING
The theme for this challenge is...
Spring

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
 Here is what I used to make my card...
Digistamp By: DigiStamp Boutique
Colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'So-So-Sweet' Glitter
White/Yellow Cardstock Paper
Unbranded Oval Frame Die
Offray Lace Ribbon
Darice Taper Runner
Zots Glue Dots
Beacon Gem-Tac Glue
Toothpick - handy little tool
 
  I made my card with yellow paper. After cutting the patterned paper to fit, I added tape to each back corner and placed it in the center of the card. I then cut a strip of paper with glitter on it and taped it to the center of the card, from the top down. Next I used the die to cut a frame around the image. Then I taped the image onto the center of the card, toward the top, over the paper strip. I then added a piece of lace ribbon across the bottom of the card and glued the ends beneath the patterned paper. Being I only add tape on the back corners of the patterned paper, I can easily lift the sides to add ribbon beneath it. After that, I added a small amount of glue, using a toothpick to go under the paper, to glue it down all around. Next I made a bow with the lace ribbon and glued it beneath the image and over the lace ribbon strip.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration. 
Come join us in the fun!

Happy Crafting,
Hugs, Sherry x

MIDWAY - SCRIBBLES DESIGNS CHALLENGE #51 - BIRDS OF A FEATHER

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a challenge going on at  
http://scribblesdesignschallenge.blogspot.com/
The theme for this challenge is...
Birds of a Feather

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
 Here is what I used to make my card...
Digistamps by: 
#504 Farrah Flamingo: Scribbles Designs
#505 Frank Flamingo: Scribbles Designs
#515 Frank Snap Shot: Scribbles Designs
#0124 Wishing/Sending You Some (Sun) Shine: Scribbles Designs
Beach Camp Digital Papers/Embellishments: Salt Town Studio
Ocean Scene (Mine) - A Pixel -N- Time
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils 
Darice Sequins 'Tiny Star'
Tim Holtz idea-ology 'Paper String'
Martha Stewart Score Board
Ad tech Crafter's Precision Glue 'Fine Line'
White Cardstock Paper

This is the first easel card I have made. I had a lot of fun working with the flamingos. I wanted to give it a vacation/holiday feel. We need some warmer weather soon, lol. Now onto what I did...
I put the card together in Paint Shop Pro (papers, images and embellishments) leaving enough room in the center for the fold. After printing it out, I cut off the excess paper and used the score board to score the center of it. Then I colored the images. Next I glued three star sequins on the top part of the card, above the flamingos, then two on the sky area of the snapshot of Frank. Using paper string, I made a bow and glued it to the top left corner on the card.

I hope you like my DT card and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafty Hugs,
Sherry x

LOVE TO SCRAP CHALLENGE #96 - GIRLZ RULE!

Hi There Crafty Friends,
  I'm wanting to let you know there is a new challenge starting today at
Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.
The theme for this challenge is...Girlz Rule!
Here's my inspiration card using my own image...
Here's my recipe...
Image Stamp - Art By: Elizabeth Bell Designs
Unbranded Sentiment Stamp
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Mirabelle' Cardstock
Core'dinations 4.2"x5.5" 'Pastels' ColorCore Cardstock
Impression Obsession Stamps: Bushel of Apples Die
Unbranded Leaves Die
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
White Cardstock Paper

Here's what I did to make my card...
I stamped my images and sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock paper and colored them with colored pencils. Then I made the card with the same paper I used for the image. After cutting the patterned paper to fit I taped it onto the center of the card. Next I cut the pink ColorCore paper to frame behind the image, then taped the image onto the center of it. Then I used the distressing tool on each side of the pink paper and taped the paper in the center of the card. Next I glued the leaves onto the right side of the card, toward the top and bottom. I wanted the bushel basket to have more character, so I used a brown color pencil to add some shading to it and glued on some apples. Then I glued the bushel full of apples onto the right bottom corner of the card.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Hope you come join us in the fun!

Happy Crafting,
Hugs, Sherry x

LOVE TO CRAFT CHALLENGE #9 - ANYTHING GOES

Hi There Crafty Friends,
There's a new challenge starting today at
Love To Craft Challenge Blog
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes

Here's my inspiration project for this challenge... 
Here's my recipe...
Recycled 10.5"x10" Piece of Cardboard
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Slice Precision Cutter
Memento Luxe Pigment Ink 'Wedding Dress'
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Walnut Stain'
Tim Holtz Ink Blending Tool
The Crafters Workshop 6"x6" Stencils:
 'Mini Well Rounded' and 'Butterfly Collage'

This is the first time I have created anything like this...I am calling it 'Cardboard Art', although I guess it is a mixed media project.
Either way, I had a lot of fun making it. :)
 I got the idea from a video on YouTube by Kimpaperbabe.
 I drew the image and used different stencils but the rest is pretty much the same as what she does in the video.

And that's my DT project for this challenge.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Come on and join us in the challenge!

Happy Crafting,
