NND-Wild About You

Here's another card I created this weekend.  This set uses Wild Child by NND. I repeatedly stamped the wild sentiment.  I water colored paper using lots of neutral colors--gray, browns and dark oranges.  Then I stamped the image.  I went back and used Tombow markers to darken the stripes before blending with more water.  I was shooting for the mottled colors of the domestic short-haired tabby cat.  I finished by assembling and then adding the about you sentiment. Below are the challenges I am entering this card.  Thanks for stopping by! ~Debbie

Inky Paws Challenge #19 - Watercolor


I'm loving all the metallic papers lately!  I just love those gold dots, so I let the paper do the work on this card.  I die cut the love sentiment (from Paper Smooches) multiple times and glued them together to create some dimension.  I add the gold banner (DCWV), a flower, and some gold enamel dots by SC.

TCP--Bunny Birthday Shaker Card

 It's been a while since I've played with Fusion, The Cat's Pajamas challenges, and The Paper Players, so I found some time.  I created a shaker card using some DCWV paper.  I'm loving all the silver in the paper!

CIC302--Little Miss Muffet Sponsor to this week's challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  This week is a color challenge--black, goldenrod, and pink.  We are sponsored by Little Miss Muffet.
I used the darling Polka Dot Pals Heidi image. The sentiment is from Newton's Nooks Designs--Newton's Summer Vacation.  I used a Stampin' Up punch to create the fun flower. The brads are from Echo Park.  All the papers are from my ever growing scrap pile!. I paper pieced and colored the image with my  
Spectrum Noir markers. more inspiration can be found at Cupcake Inspirations, which is also where you can link up! 


Let's Fiesta

I recently purchased Noggin Toppers from Paper Smooches.  I combined these hats with Southern Charms and Sunny Side Up.  I slid my distress inks across the card base with some fun colors.  I died cut out the center. I used some 3D tape and Glossy Accents to add a bit of dimension to the middle.  thanks for stopping by!  ~Debbie

Inspired by those colors and the round candies

Good Luck Newton

I wasn't really planning on making a St. Patrick's Day card, but then I found some challenges that I just had to play.  Red Carpet Studio is spotlighting "The Lucky One" which is one of my new favorite romantic comedies. (Zac Efron is definitely eye candy in this one!)  I found another great sketch from The Friday Mashup's 200th challenge celebration.  This sketch worked perfectly with the shamrocks (a $1 purchase from JoAnn's) and Newton and his wagon (Newton's Nooks Designs).  Then I added some sparkly gold paper (DCWV) that I recently purchased 50% at JoAnn's.  I also found other great challenges with a St. Patty's theme and/or glitter stamp; sparkle. (All of them are listed below.) I'm loving how this card turned out!  Thanks for stopping by and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Debbie

Easter is around the corner, so I pulled out my new stamp set from Newton's Nooks Designs--Bunny Hop.  I, again, found some super fun Friday Mashup Challenges to use.  They are having their 200th challenge, and I am just loving looking at their past challenges and finding great ones to play with!  I am also playing with some other great challenges.  See below.  Hugs, Debbie
