Trees Please over at DRS Designs Blog-Thursday Challenge 72


I had been out of town and getting back to normalcy is always hectic! The Thursday challenge with DRS Designs is all about trees, please! I also did this for the mix-ability challenge over on SCS which was to paint, use markers and then outline your image somehow. This didn't quite turned out as I'd planned but I like it...I painted the blue on card stock and let dry and then stamped the trees. I colored the trees in with acrylic paints and distressed stickles on the trunk.  I added little dots around the image. Also randomly put white blobs/dots of acrylic paint with dauber. Head on over to DRS Designs blog to play.

TTSTV Challenge 51-Floating spinner card

I missed the boat on this tutorial for TTSTV and did it wrong as I didn't look at the tutorial! I have been out of town on work/vacation. It does spin and kind of float. I was supposed to use string. Oops. Pat brought us the tutorial and I will be making an attempt at the correct way to do a floating spinner card later today!  For this particular creation I used pennies to get my birdie to float across the page. I used the Birds and Trees stamp set for this creation. 
Here is the stamp set you can win by playing along. Come on over to mfpspeedytv and join in the tutorial time challenge fun!

DRS Designs Challenge 71-Paper punches


The challenge over at DRS Designs Blog today is to use paper punches. For this creation I used a large circle punch to showcase my fussy cut the large strawberries and both the circle and the strawberries are popped up. The Wild thing greeting was stamped in black and punched out with the word window punch and the edge of the red layer with the polka dot bg stamp was punched with the spiral notebook punch. I thought the polka dots stamped on red resembled the strawberries. The two berries and the flowers were water colored with pearlescent paints and then a dab of pale yellow liquid pearls added to the center.  Some twine and lace and I'm good to go!

I made this card for the sketch challenge over on SCS.  This sentiment CRACKS me up...I am feeling this way!

I thought this card will certainly cheer somebody up:)

Card/Box in one TTSTV's challenge 47


I love this tutorial brought to us by our very own Kathy!  Awesomeness and Kathy, I thank you. This will go to my bff...her birthday is Cinco de Mayo and she loves to garden.  Her gift card will go inside. I used the stamp set Seed packets for this creation. Nothing too fancy....not for Lisa. She will love this!
Head on over to mfpspeedytv, click on challenges and then click on Tutorial time challenges.  Hope to see you there!
