Before Poppy Sketches, I wasn't familiar with this company and their fabulous stamps!  They have wonderful products, and I hope you will have a moment or two to check them out AND/OR join Poppy Sketches for our final challenge for a chance to win!  Thank you Starving Artistamps for your amazing support!  As for Laura, Lee, and the design team, thank you for the opportunity to create with you!  It has been a pleasure and I hope our lives cross often in the crafting world!  Laura, I wish you all the best on getting better!  ~Debbie

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 
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!
