Poppy Sketch #16


A new challenge at Poppy Sketches is starting!  This time we are sponsored by CutCardStock. I totally love the shimmer on the silver card stock, and I love this glitter black/silver chevron paper!  What an easy way to add sparkle without a mess! Since there was all this sparkle and glitter, I decided to combine this sketch with the Inky Paws Challenge--Add a Little Sparkle!  I pulled out my favorite kitty--Newton!  I used Stickles to add sparkle to the lights.  Then I added some sequins, twine, and a glittery button to finish it off!  What a great way to get my Christmas card making started!  Now it's your turn to use the Poppy Sketches' sketch and a pop of chevron!  You might even want to add a bit of sparkle!  ~Debbie~

Golden Wreath with Newton

So excited to pull out my Christmas Newton stamps!  This month's Inky Paws Challenge is to add a little Sparkle.  I used a gold pen to color the wreath, added some sequins, gold string, and a touch of Stickles!  Even the peppermint ribbon has a hint of sparkle!  Such a fun card to make!

Cupcake Inspirations 284--Cute Ink

http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com/2014/10/challenge-284.html 
This week at Cupcake Inspirations we have some amazing colors to challenge you
 as well as a super fun sponsor--2 Cute Ink!
I used the Batman Cat image--imagine that!  When I first saw it, I knew I had to play with it! I used some paper from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes and some scraps from my stash.  The sentiment is from K.Andrew Designs, which sadly is no longer in business.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers then added some May Arts ribbon! This card is for my hubby!  I so hope that you will join us at Cupcake Inspirations

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #282--My Grafico





 Mygrafico Digitals Logo
It's a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  This week it's a color challenge-ballet, cream, and gold. We are sponsored by My Grafico. The DT Sweeties used Stick Fairies digis.  I decided to use The Cat's Pajamas' Fancy Fold Cut-Ups to make a fold out card.  I decided to keep it pretty simple.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and added some sparkle with gold Stickles.  I paired up a couple flowers with some gold dots!  A fun birthday card for a little girl!

Trick-or-Treat with Bunnicula



Today's craft session was all about Halloween cards!  I am still playing with my new Boo Crew stamps from Newton's Nook Designs.  I've been digging through my very old stash of Halloween paper.  I so want to buy some new pads, but I have so much just sitting there!   

In case you are not aware, Cupcake Inspirations Theme Challenge this week is Story Time!  The first time I saw this vampire bunny I was reminded of the book, Bunnicula.  It is one of my favorite children's chapter books.  Chester, the cat, is convinced that the new bunny the family brought home is a vampire! Have a stamp that reminds you of a book?  Be sure to join us this week!

CIC281--Story Time with Frankenstein


 http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com/2014/10/challenge-281.html

Oh, this week's challenge at  Cupcake Inspirations is one of my favorite theme challenges--Story Time!  There are so many wonderful children's books that I love that could easily be turned into a card.  For this card, I used a Bugaboo image--Bobblehead hween Frank.  
Frankenstein Takes the Cake | [Adam Rex]
Here's the children's book that inspired me! 
We don't have a sponsor this week, but never fear.  
Jennifer, our head 'baker', is going to pull from her stash!
It will be well worth your effort to join us this week!
