Sneaky Peeks Begin {TCP September Release}-Day 1

Hi everyone!  I had the good fortune to be part of  The Cat's Pajamas September release sneaky peeks! Today is the first day, and I have several more projects to share throughout the week. 

First up is my favorite long-earred bunny supporting her favorite cause.  I did mine up in Pink for all those fighting Breast Cancer or are Survivors! . The set  called Survivor

I used two other new products with this card--cut up called Fancy Flip Frames and Fancy Flip Die. They are great layering pieces to another cutup also available. Here I used it on it's own. 
Be sure to stop by SCS and the TCP forum for all the Sneaky Peek funJust comment in this thread and you could win this stamp set. We are giving away a set a day during Sneaky Peek Week. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Debbie

Make a Change!

My last card for tonight as I am suppose to be getting some work done for tomorrow!  This card uses the Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch #332 and the TAWS-Be Inspired photo challenge #57. I loved the dots and their colors, so I pulled them in using The Alley Ways stamp sets--Background Check and randomly colored some dots in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I also liked that cute onesie, so I used TAWS Tiny Treasures.  The sentiment and 1 penny came from TAWS-Change set.  I think this would be the cutest 1st birthday card, so I'm entering it into Seize the Birthday's challenge! I pulled it together with a few little dot embellies!  A fun, quick birthday card!  Thanks, as always, for dropping by!  Debbie



I opted not to add the toppings this week, which was Sweet Treats.

Hey Sugar, a donut sensation!

While browsing some different challenges, I stumbled across Sketchy Colors.  When I saw those donuts, I not only wanted to play with the colors, I wanted to duplicate the donuts!  I used three different Paper Smooches stamp sets--Sugar Rush, Shadows, and Falling for You. I glossy accented those yummy donuts, heat embossed the sentiment, and added some googly eyes.  (Now off to Dunkin' Donuts!)  Thanks for stopping by!  Debbie

Cupcakes Inspirations Challenge #279-Fresh Brewed Designs

It's a new week, so time for a new Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. This week we have a theme challenge--Around Town!  We have one of our regular sponsors back--Fresh Brewed Designs.  I used From the Roof Tops, which was perfect for this challenge. I loved the pink on those cupcakes, so I wanted to pull in pink.  I kept the design simple, but pulled in texture using an embossing folder and Core'dination's Black Magic paper and distressing the edges on the black cardstock.  I add a bit of pink to the image with Spectrum Noir markers. 

Now it's your turn to use this week's challenge! Link up at Cupcake Inspirations! Hugs, Debbie

Let Them Eat Cupcakes

 I just found a brand new challenge called If You Give a Crafter a Cookie.  I just had to play with this challenge.  I love the Laura Numeroff's book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!  I combined it with Freshly Made Sketches and TCP Tuesday Challenge and Addicted to CAS because the theme is Cuddly.  I love this very cuddly big-earred bunny!
  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Debbie




Halloween Smooches

When I first saw this SPARKS inspiration, I wasn't sure quite how to interpret it.  The skull finally inspired me to create a Halloween card.  I wanted to pull in both the colors and the wooden texture.  So Frankie (PS-Halloweenies)  turned into a non-traditional guy and the wood grain became cork paper!  I really liked the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  I started to assemble everything when I glanced and saw the smooches sentiment (Scripty Sentiments). BINGO!  What about a romantic Halloween car?  I found the lips stamp in the PS-A Little Lovin' set.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out since I had no idea what to do when I first sat down.  As always, thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Debbie

Here's my third (maybe final) card of the night.  I recently purchased this background coffee stamp from Stampendous!  I just love it!  I combined it with The Alley Way's Breakfast Club.  That cute # hash tag is from Paper Smooches' Digits stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Friend Birthday

My second card tonight.  This one features  Your Next Stamps' Jungle Critter Crew!  This is such a fun set.  I used some tropical-print paper from Echo Park to coordinate with that large palm tree.  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Debbie


I was inspired by the pinks, green, and browns in this photo.

Cupcake Inspirations #278--Core'dinations

It's Sunday, and that means a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  This week we are sponsored by Core'dinations and have a fun color theme.  I'm totally loving these colors. I paired my Core'dinations card stock with Taylored Expressions' Green Acres set. Velcro, my new kitten, lent me a paw and helped with this card.  He really loved running over everything, attacking my fingers, and swatting the stamps.  It took me over 30 minutes to find the one he lost! But in the end, we had a great time and I finally finished the card!

http://www.coredinations.com/Now it's your turn to use these amazing colors in your project.  Go to  Cupcake Inspirations to check out more amazing cards by the design team Sweeties and to link up!  Hugs, Debbie
