Think Pink

It's another Friday on the Sami Stamps blog and since it is the fifth Friday in the month, we are featuring past images from the Sami Stamps shop.  This month we are featuring the Think Pink category.  As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so this is the perfect feature.

I used the image Beautiful for my project.  It can be paired with many different sentiments depending on the emotion you want the card to convey.  She was colored with Copics and cut out using the Silhouette.  You can find her in the shop in the Think Pink category.  Pop on over to the blog and check out the other gorgeous projects my teamies made.  They are all so lovely.

Autumn Magic

This week at the Creative Knockouts our theme is Autumn.  I love fall and while I don't get the colors here in the south, we do get cooler weather.  Unfortunately, summer has been hanging on and I just keep waiting for fall!  To pass the time and help me look forward to those cooler temperatures, I will have to keep making fall projects!

I used Autumn Magic from Saturated Canary for my project.  Unfortunately, Krista has closed her shop, so I have no links for you.  She was colored with Copics and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps.  There are so many adorable images in the shop.  Click the link below and take a look for yourself.  You could win a prize of a $12 gift certificate just for playing along!

Autumn Nap

At the Crafty Gals Corner this week we have an anything goes challenge.  I am so ready for fall that I decided to use this sweet little guy.

This sweet digi is called Autumn Nap and you can find him in Rick St. Dennis' Zibbet shop.  You can find more of Rick's art in his Etsy shop.  The Etsy shop is where you can find his less...cuddly...creations. =)  The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  The pumpkin shaped card is also a Silhouette file, but it didn't start out as a card.  I love how easy it is to manipulate files in the software.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week.  I have linked the badges below to make is super easy for you to go shopping.  You can thank me later!

Prize of 2 digital images

Thinking of You By the Lake

Hello!  It is my turn on the MoonFlower blog and I have a gorgeous, new release image to share with you.  It is called By the Lake and you can find her in the MoonFlower shop on Etsy.  Look at all of that gorgeous hair and the beautiful folds!  A fun challenge for sure!

This card originally started out in my head as a white, one layer card.  I just couldn't wrap my head around all of that white space, so I cut her hand...and put her on blue card stock that had been embossed with clouds.  That was much easier for my brain to accept and I went on from there!  She was colored with Copic markers and the sentiment came from the Silhouette store.  I kept the embellishments simple.  After all, it was supposed to be a one layer card, you know!

If you have a spare moment or two, come visit us in the Facebook group.  We would love for you to pop in and say "hi"!

So Sweet

Welcome back to the Crafty Gals Corner!  This week our challenge is critters!  We want to see critters on your projects.

My critter is this adorable Cat from STAMPlorations.  It was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  I thought it was sweet and paired it with a sentiment of "so sweet".  I thought it would made a good thank you card for someone.  I created the tag by punching the Extra Large Decorative Label from Stampin' Up and putting the punched shape back into the punch and punching off the end.  When you line it up just right, you get a small decorative label.

We have three wonderful sponsors on offer this week.  Each badge is linked to the shop to make it super easy for you to pop in and take a look around.

Prize of 3 digital images or 1 digital set


Prize of 3 digital stamps


Prize of a $10 gift certificate

I know you all love your critters, so come play along!

Hello everyone!  The theme this week at Crafty Sentiments Designs is for someone special.  As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I wanted to use it for this theme.  My hubby and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary on Sunday, and I gave him this card.  I know it isn't super masculine, but he is okay with that. =)

This is Endless Love.  They are just too cute!  They were colored with Copic markers.  I didn't put too many embellishments on it since I planned to give it to my husband.

Don't forget, the prizes have changed a little bit.  If you are chosen as the winner and you used a Crafty Sentiments stamp, you will receive 3 digital images as your prize.  If you didn't use a Crafty Sentiments stamp you will receive 1 digital image.  The Crafty Sentiments favorite will also receive 1 image as a prize.  You can click the image below to pop over and shop a little.

I hope you will celebrate someone special and join in on the fun.

A Little Boo!

Today is my second Rubbernecker Stamps design team post!  It is so exciting to be on this team and working with rubber stamps again.

This sweet little skeleton came from Halloween Set 3 and the sentiment came from Halloween Set 1.
I colored him with copics and the frame is a Silhouette cut file.  It started out as an oval, but I made it into a circle.  The background and banner papers are digital files from Echo Park's Arsenic and Old Lace collection.  You can find them on Snap Click Supply.

Be sure to visit my teamies and give them some love.  They have some gorgeous projects this week!
