Emboss it

This week at Creative Knockouts our challenge for you is to add embossing.  I prefer dry embossing, but wet embossing will work too!


I used Chickz - Holy Cluck Another Birdday from Bugaboo Stamps for this project. The image was colored with Copic markers.  I used the Silhouette to cut it out in an oval, but then ended up fussy cutting it to just the image.

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and you have the chance to win 3 images by playing along.  Click the badge below to pop over to the shop.

Love and Flowers

The Crafty Gals Corner has a new challenge starting today.  The challenge is an easy one!  All you have to do is use flowers.  They could be part of the image, an embellishment, or a paper!  Bring on your flowers!


This is Mrs. Luvvy Owl from Digital Delights.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used the Silhouette to cut the oval since I had some other images on my sheet still.  The sentiment is from the Discover Words stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps.

We have some awesome sponsors for you this week.  You can click on the badges to pop over to each shop.

Little Polly in Pastels

This week at Crafty Sentiments our challenge is to use pastel colors.  I love the soft tones of pastels, so this is an awesome challenge for me!



This is Little Polly - Collecting Flowers.  I colored her with COPIC markers and fussy cut her.  She is mounted on a die cut doily that I bought ages ago, and found while I was looking for something else. It has a soft shimmery finish and just adds a little glamour to this card.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments images by playing along. You don't have to use a Crafty sentiments image or stamp to play, but if you do and you are chosen as the winner, you win more!

Thanks for Everything

It is time for another Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday Post.  It is the day that my teamies and I all bring you some new Rubbernecker Stamps inspiration.


This week I used Teddy Bear.  This is such a sweet stamp and can be used in so many ways.  This time I used him for a thank you card.  He will have a matching die soon.  I also used the new clear set Best Friends Etc for the sentiment.  This set will also have a matching die so keep watching for that!

Check out our challenge for your chance to win a gift certificate for the store.  You can pop over to the blog for more details.

Callas Lilly Faerie

Hello MoonFlower fans!  Rae Ann here bringing you some inspiration using an older MoonFlower image.  I decided to use Callas Lilly Faerie this time.  I bought her before I joined the MoonFlower design team and I thought it was time I colored her up!


One of the hardest things for me is to decide on what colors to use.  I finally decided on the gorgeous teals in the Copic markers and got to work.  I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.  I always color first and then design my card.  Luckily, I had some paper to match!  I used some clear Wink of Stella on her wings.  I think faeries should always have sparkly wings.

You should visit the MoonFlower blog to see what my other teamies have posted lately.  There is some remarkable talent on the team and the projects are gorgeous!

Howl of a Day

I can't believe I am typing another Rubbernecker Stamps post!  I also can't believe it is just about the middle of May either!  I do not know where the time has gone!  For my Rubbernecker Stamps post this week, I bring to you a project using the new clear Dogs 1 set and the matching dies.


I stamped this sweet pup and then colored him with Copic markers.  The sentiment and the paw print come from the Dogs 1 set as well.  I also used the Plaid Background for a contrasting pattern on the background.  I simply used some Versamark ink to get the tone on tone look.

If you haven't popped over to the blog in a while, you should take a look at everything my teamies have come up with for you to look at.  Just gorgeous!

While you are there, check out our current challenge.  You could be the lucky winner of some cash to spend in the store!

A Touch of Eden

The challenge at Creative Knockouts this week is one of my favorites!  Our challenge is to use your favorite embellishment.  I have so many favorites, but it is fun to try to put them on one card!


I used Eden Blossoms from Polkadoodles and colored her with Copic markers.  I had to use the Silhouette to cut her out since she was a touch too big for the die.  The out of the box technique is so easy with the Cameo!  So...my favorite embellishments...I think dies count...check...flowers...check...lace or ribbon...check...buttons...check...gems and pearls...check check!  So I have pretty much all of my favorite embellishments on this card.  I tried to fit a little ribbon, but I just couldn't find the spot for it.

This week, Polkadoodles is our sponsor, and you have a chance to win your choice of a gift certificate for $6.75 or 3 digital stamps.  Click the badge below to explore the shop.
