Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge #121

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge mid-inspiration post for challenge #121.

Our theme is Under the Sea.
I've used an image from our sponsor, Kinda Cute by Patricia, called Jellyfish.

I'm still using supplies from kits I collected during a shop hop many years ago so I can't really share where the die cuts/punches came from but I think they are perfect to create this under the sea design.
I did use Copic markers on the image and cut it out using my Scan N Cut2.

Mid-inspiration means you still have time to enter our challenge.
Just follow the Aloha Challenge link above.


Cut It Up Challenge #151 ~ TAG, you're it!

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love making tags! 

 Our challenge at Cut it Up is to make a tag and we were gifted a great tag die set from our generous sponsor, CAS-UAL FRIDAYS along with a sweet flower die.

With her wedding coming up, I thought I'd make a tag using my daughter's wedding colors and theme (rustic/lace/burlap.)

The tag and flowers are dies from our sponsor.  I used a well-loved Martha Stewart die for the "leaves."  The sentiment is heat embossed using a stamp from Jaded Blossom's Fancy Wedding set.  I added Stickles to the flower centers.  Easy peasy but follows her wedding theme perfectly.

Kitty Bee Designs DT Spotlight

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn for the Kitty Bee Designs DT monthly spotlight.

I've used the Baseball Pup digi stamp which can be found HERE.

The papers are from an Authentique set which also included embellishments and stickers.  I colored using Copic Markers and cut the image out using my Scan N Cut2.

Always Fun Challenge #64 ~ Fun at the Beach

Hi Crafty Friends,

We're having FUN AT THE BEACH for Always Fun Challenge #64.

I used Jaded Blossom dies to create this 8 x 8 layout.

All of the elements were cut using my Gemini Jr.  All I added was a little inking.

I hope you've been visiting the Always Fun Challenges blog each week to play along and also see some great crafty creations from our design team members.

The Merry Christmas Challenge # 25

Hi Crafty Friends,

The OPTIONAL theme for The Merry Christmas Challenge is Memories.

There's just something to be said about traditional Santas and Christmas stories.  This paper by Graphic 45 really brings back memories of traditional celebrations.

The only thing I added to the panel I selected was the Joy die cut from Lala Land Crafts.  I really think the paper says it all.

I hope you'll join our Merry Christmas Challenge.  Remember that there are new card ideas every week.  Just follow the link above.

Cut it Up Challenge #150 ~ Anything But a Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Along with cards, I love making treat holders or centerpieces. For this challenge our sponsor, 
Ink on 3, provided some fabulous cut files for us to use.  I made the teapot from the
Pansy Tea Party 3D SVG set which can be found HERE.

This teapot is about 7" tall on a 4" square base.  I cut the file exactly as it came in the SVG file.
It was so easy to cut and assemble.  I added a flower from my stash and some ribbon.  It can be used in so many ways:  centerpiece, treat holder, or gift box.
Here is the entire set.
I hope you'll play along with our Anything But a Card challenge.

My Besties International Challenge ~ reminder post

Hi Crafty Friends,
I'm here to remind you that you still have time to enter
My Besties International July challenge.
The OPTIONAL theme is Summer.  You may use any image by any artist.
Years ago, when I first began card making, my bestie and I went on a 15 store "shop hop."  At each store we were given materials to make a 6x6 layout.  Since I don't really do albums, I still have some of the kits which I've been using to create cards LOL.  That being said, I have no idea of the paper manufacturer and I'm pretty sure the flowers are punches!  I do love the colors, though.
My Fluffy Bestie was colored using Copic Markers.
I hope you'll still join us for our June challenge.  Just follow the link at the top of the post.

The Merry Christmas Challenge #23

Hi Crafty Friends,

The OPTIONAL theme for The Merry Christmas Challenge #23 is POLKA DOTS.

I think polka dotted patterned paper is my favorite.  I really gravitate to dots when laying out my papers.  Today I'm using some non traditional colors from my stash.

The sentiment is a die from the Jaded Blossom Christmas Dies2 set.  The snowflake is from an unbranded set.  I'm thinking I'll put together some more dotted cards in different colors for my holiday mailing.

Please follow the link above to join in our challenge.

Cut it Challenges #149

Hi Crafty Friends,

For challenge #149 at Cut it Up Challenges, we were asked to use a sketch.  I followed a sketch I found online by Sketch Saturday and followed it exactly except for adding the sentiment tag.

The image is a digi called Little League provided by our challenge sponsor,
A Day for Daisies.

I colored using Copic Markers.  The papers are from a Graphic 45 Sports set.  I cut the star and tab using Jaded Blossom dies.  The border is a punch I've had forever!  The sentiment is from the Baseball set by Our Daily Bread Designs.

Come on over to join our challenge.  Just follow a sketch of your choice and don't forget to use a die cut.
