CIC330--Scribbles Designs

Welcome to some fun colors this week at Cupcake Inspirations.  We have a super fun sponsor--Scribbles Designs--who is offering a randomly chosen winner a $10 gift certificate!  I decided to play with my Spectrum Noir pencils.  I am still struggling with them, so I am not completely happy with my coloring on this darling image!  I decided to add the sentiment in honor of my two kitties who have been enjoying the cooler weather by sprinting through the house!  For inspiration, be sure to check out the DT Sweeties' projects at Cupcake Inspirations!  Looking forward to see your work!  Debbie

Perk Up--Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Here's my 5th card for the Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  For this card, I pulled out an older gel-a-tin's --Coffee Break and Gourmet Rubber Stamps' The Quiet Moments.  I colored each element with Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted to give them a glazed look, so I added Crackle Accents.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wild For Coffee--Coffee Lovers Bloghop #4

I'm back with my 4th card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  This card features two fun stamp sets from Your Next Stamp:  Thanks a Latte and Jungle Critters. I don't own nearly enough stamps sets from Your Next Stamps, but I decided to try my hand of combining two of them with an autumn theme.  Not too easy when the tropic climate doesn't equate autumn.  Therefore I decided on some autumn colors.  I prefer iced or frozen coffee drinks, so this little monkey is enjoying an iced coffee while standing on a palm tree.  

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Card #3

I am trying to squeeze in some more cards between work and my reading endorsement night classes.  This one features My Favorite Things' Die-namics LLD Coffee Cup and Verve Coffee Word Die. I really wish I had had this paper in a more pumpkinish color as well as the ribbon.  (If only I could win a lottery, so my craft wish list could be fulfilled!)  Thanks for stopping by!

CIC329--Oddball Art

This week at Cupcake Inspirations, we are sponsored by Oddball Art. Our theme is Magical!  Hope you will check out the other DT Sweeties at Cupcake Inspirations and link up for a chance to win 3 digi images from Oddball Art!  ~Debbie

For this card I printed the image and colored her with Spectrum Noir markers.  I die cut and distressed the images.  For the wings, I used a shiny gel pen. I then cut the pattern paper and adhered. I used a punch for the decorative edges and added the ribbon. I added a dragonfly brad and added some Stickles for extra shine. I added the doily and adhered all the layers.  For the final touch I made a bow and adhered.

Happy Halloween-Nontraditional Colors

I am not really a big fan of Halloween, but I absolutely LOVE making Halloween cards!  This card features Newton out scary everybody!  I fell in love with the colors from The Color Throwdown challenge!  Therefore, a Halloween card in very nontraditional colors!  I have to say I love it!  I inlaid the watercolored background (The Cat's Pajamas' Frame Up Cutups). I punched the cute tree and added some bark with a black gel-pen. I add a few iridescent sequins. I added some twine and embossed the sentiment (unknown source).

Turn Me On

Just loved this week's Picture Perfect SPARKS challenge at Paper Smooches.  I was inspired by the geometric design and fun colors!  I love combining different stamp sets to create something original.  This card combines Spectrum, We Totally Click, Boob Tubes, Sunny Side Up, and Super Halloweenies.  I also used Paper Smooches' Stitched dies. I'm really liking how this turned out.  It makes me laugh!  Thanks for stopping by!  Debbie

TCP--Trick or Treat--Pillow Gift Box

I've been pulling out my Halloween stamps, and I totally forgot how cute they are!  This card features my favorite long-warred bunny from The Cat's Pajamas. This set is called Boo Y'all.  I also used TCP's Vintage Halloween and TCP's Fancy Flip Cut Ups. I can't wait to give this little box to my hubby for Halloween.  I think a gift card and some creepy gummy worms or spiders would make a nice present! Thanks for stopping by! Deb


NND--Bunnicula Goes Trick or Treating!

Here's my 1st Halloween card for the season!  I pulled out Newton's Nooks Designs Boo Crew.  I love this bunny because he always reminds me of the book, Bunnicula by James Howe.  My oldest granddaughter is finally old enough to enjoy the book, so I'll be sending this card with the book!  Seriously, what can be more fun than reading about a vampire bunny!  I'm submitting this card to the these fabulous challenges.  Thanks for stopping by!  Debbie
