Digital Delights Hostess Monday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn to post for Hostess Monday at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
  I am a Senior Designer and Team Two Coordinator.  I've been designing for Digital Delights for almost five years and I'm still in love with Wendy's fabulous images!  
 I decided to try a tri fold card but with a twist of using two windows then actually placing my image on the inside of the card.  It's based on an card design by Regina Easter.  I used an image from the January release, Huggy Bunny.

Here's my card: 

Huggy Bunny

I used Jaded Blossom's Stitched Squares Dies for the windows.  I decided that with the paper layering not much embellishment was needed so I just added Doodlebug Designs glittered sparkles.  the image was colored using Copic markers.

Cupid Strikes Again!

Cupid Strikes Again!!!

Welcome to this co-hop with Die Cuttin’ Divas and Cut It Up. We are so glad that you are joining us today and super excited to share our inspiration with you.
We  have a line-up of DT members from both teams sharing Valentine projects and we are hoping you enjoy them all. Our teams even had to play cupid and send their project to a fellow team member as a surprise. How is that for sharing the love!

How about some prizes?
Craftin' Desert Divas ~ 2 digi stamps of choice
KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ 2 $5.00 certificates
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon ~ $15 gift certificate

Cupid’s Rules…
1. Make sure you are a follower on each stop along this hop.
2. Leave a comment on each project and you will be entered
to win one of the prizes.
Prize winners will be announced on Valentine's Day, February 14th.

I created my project for Shelly on the Die Cuttin' Divas team.
I wanted to send her a fun Cupid treat so here's my project.

This cute treat holder is the Scallop Caddy Die from Jaded Blossom.  I used the Hero Arts heart die set from their Valentine kit to make the shaker window (I'm in love with shaker cards now that I have the WRMK FUSE tool).  The sequins also came in the Hero Arts kit.  For the sentiment I die cut two flag dies from Jaded Blossom and used a sentiment from their Simple Sayings-Valentines set.  A little twine bow and some Love Glitter Sprinkles from Doodlebug Designs finished Cupid's treat.  Of course there's chocolate inside!!!

Your next stop is... LB

If you get lost along the way, here is the line-up....

Thanks for spreading the love!

Cut it Up Challenge #89

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for Cut it Up Challenge #89.  In celebration of Mardi Gras we're asking you to use a MASKING technique on your project.  And, don't forget the DIE CUT!!
I've used images from Darcie's "Hello Cupcake" set.
My die cuts include Nestabilities Postage Stamp dies and Jaded Blossom Border Dies.  
I masked the cupcake in order to stamp the bear and I also left the postage stamp die on the paper after cutting and embossing so that I could ink the background but leave the white border.  I use my dies this way quite often.  The actual die makes a great mask!
I colored the images with Copic markers and added a little Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the sprinkles.  I added a twine bow and called it done.  
You're invited to join in our challenge.  Be sure to use a die cut and a masking technique.  Just link your project HERE.
This challenge is sponsored by 
They are offering a $20 store certificate.
Don't forget to hop along with the Cut it Up Challenge team and the Die Cuttin' Divas tomorrow.
The hop will go live at 5:00 AM EST.

Love Bandit!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Have you ever been down to the last minute for a project yet you still wanted it to be special?  That's where I was with this project.  The hubby had surgery and the days prior to and since have been pretty busy, but it's my design team day at Paper Crafting World and I knew I needed a project.
Thank goodness for PCW's amazing digital stamps that include both the line art and a pre colored version!!!  A little bit of layering, some twine with a gem, Glossy Accents, and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens - that's all I added to this
Raccoon with Heart Digital Stamp (pre colored version) and here's my card . . .

This was truly a 10 minute make.  If you have more time, you can always color the image yourself.

Be sure to play along with our February challenge:
ANYTHING GOES with the option to add a heart.

You can join the challenge and pick up a freebie HERE.

I'm Yours

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today there's a new challenge at Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  The theme is "Love is in the Air" so you must add a heart and, of course, a die cut.

I recently purchased the January Creativity Kit from Hero Arts.  It included this heart die.  I also purchased the add on die set which is the 3 tiny hearts and the Valentine die cut.  The sentiment is from one of the two stamp sets included.  It's a really fun kit.

The ombre effect patterned paper is from Authentique.  I heat embossed the stamped sentiment so it would show up on the black.

This challenge is being sponsored by
One Happy Cut

I hope you'll stop by the design team blog to see more of our designs and then join in the challenge.

Snow Much Fun!

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's my design team day at Paper Crafting World.

I have another one page layout for you using the snowflakes from the January Calendar Page and this adorable Snow Angel cut file.

I just love this set of patterned papers from Echo Park (Hello Winter) so I've used it for several projects.  I heat embossed the snowflakes using a sparkly powder and added sequins to each center.  The title was created using my Silhouette.  I just fussy cut the snow and inked it a little for some dimension.

Be sure to enter the PCW monthly challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes with the twist of add snow or a snowflake.

You can enter the challenge HERE

Thanks for dropping in today.
