Digi Galore Challenges: Anything But A Square

Hey, all !  Our new challenge over at Digi Galore Challenges is:  Anything But A Square.  Our sponsor is Simply B Stamps.  I chose to work with this Breast Cancer Awareness digi. I colored her with Copic markers and used a digital cut file from for the shaped card.  

I made sure to incorporate pink and also went for a girly, glam bra!  I used a rhinestone ribbon slide for the center and also added rhinestone stickers on the top edge of the bra.  I had a Breast Cancer awareness charm that someone had sent me in the past.  It was perfect for this project!  I finished the card off with a pink flower that I Stickled in glam pink.

Digi Galore Challenges: Sketch

It's time for a new challenge over at Digi Galore Challenges.  I'm on Team A, so I normally contribute a project for the challenge posted on the first of the month only.  I saw this adorable digi from our sponsor for the mid-month challenge and decided I just had to play along!

Our current challenge is a sketch challenge, and our sponsor is The Paper Shelter.  Here is the sketch:

Recently, some friends of mine went to Japan and brought back an assortment of beautiful washi paper for me.  I was so excited to see all the pretty paper.  The pink floral paper on my card came from that set.

I colored the digi image with Copic markers and embellished the card with dimensional stickers by Jolee's.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I added some Stickles to parts of the girl's kimono and to her hair accessories.  I also added Stickles to the cherry blossom stickers (see below).

The sentiment was computer generated and means "thank you" in Japanese.  I am actually giving this card to my friends who brought back this beautiful paper for me from Japan.

Thanks for looking, and be sure to check out the latest challenge at Digi Galore Challenges!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Hello Pretty

I created this card for a card swap group I am in.  We were to use a flower theme for our cards, so I used a stamp set by Unity that I got recently.  The set is called Hello Pretty.  I colored the image with Copic markers and then matted the image with light blue cardstock.  I added some pretty red washi tape and some crystal rhinestones.  The sentiment "hello pretty" is from the stamp set as well.

I recently got my YouTube channel set up, so you can check out a video featuring this project as well as some other videos I've posted!

Digi Galore Challenges: Spring

Hey, everyone!  Sorry I am a little late posting this!  Things have been so hectic around here with taking care of two kids and everything else a mother/wife needs to do!

Our latest challenge at Digi Galore Challenges is SPRING.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place.  I have to admit that I wasn't familiar with Beccy's digi's before, but I am glad I am now!  She has some really  pretty digi's!

I chose to work with this beautiful flower for my spring card.  I colored the flower in with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Fabulous Florets set.  I inked the edges of the patterned paper with distress ink.  Some flatback pearls were the finishing touch.

Be sure to check out the challenge over at Digi Galore for a chance to win some of Beccy's images!
