DIGITAL DELIGHTS - THURSDAY SHOWCASE

Good morning and welcome to another Thursday showcase with DIGITAL DELIGHTS.  Since many people are focusing on the upcoming wedding in the UK (tomorrow my time), I thought a wedding card seemed appropriate this week.  Therefore, I chose Madison the Bride and Brady the Groom as well as a blank circular sentiment from DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP.   I added "Congratulations" to the blank sentiment and cut using nesties then added some color with Copics.  Images are also colored with Copics as well as Atyou Spicas.  Bling and flowers are from Prima, lace from JoAnn, ribbon for bow from stash.  All other shapes cut with Nesties as well.  DP from Echo Park (grey) and my stash (flowered).  Purple piece is American Crafts textured and is embossed with Cuttlebug folder.  I hope you like it!!

Welcome to another Tuesday with SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS!!  I hope everyone is having better weather than us - we have had such massive amounts of rain that I am beginning to think I will never see the precious sun again!  I think all the rain has caused me to create a bright and cheerful card in hopes that better weather is on its way:)

CRAFTY HOs' DIGI and RUBBER STAMP Challenge

Wow, crazy weekend!  Lots of wind storms which prevented me from access to my trusty computer or laptop because we kept losing our internet connection on Saturday night and Sunday.  So, please excuse some catching up posts:) 

Before I even get to the NEW CHALLENGES that I have made cards for, I want to share a bit about my weekend.  I was fortunate enough to take a class taught by Beate Johns from Splitcoast.  She is an amazing crafter and very funny and sweet.  I really enjoyed the class - it was fancy fold cards and coloring with Copics.  She really taught a lot, especially about coloring with Copics and I think you may notice in my creations, but I will let you judge for yourself:)

My first post today is to let you know about the NEW CHALLENGE at CRAFTY HOs' CHALLENGE.  Our challenge this week is to use a Rubber/Clear Stamp plus a digi stamp.  I have chosen an image from WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP as my digi and a clear sentiment stamp "Great Times!" from Fiskars.  I colored my image using Copics and my newly learned coloring method.


DPs are from My Mind's Eye and Best Creations.  Lace and button hearts from JoAnn.  All rounded squares cut with Lifestyle Crafts dies, large rectangle and sentiment tag cut with Nesties.  Bling flowers from Me and Kaisercraft.  CS is Bazzill textured.  Hope you like it.

STAMP INSANITY CHALLENGE - GET YOUR GROOVE ON!!

Hello and sorry this post is so late.  Been having a heck of a time this week not only because I had to get myself and the kids back on their school schedule, and because I sliced my finger yesterday but because things are starting to bloom and I have terrible allergies.  Typically, that wouldn't be a huge deal b/c I would just take my allergy pills and move on, but my ENT decided I needed to undergo allergy testing.  Part of allergy testing means no allergy/sinus or cold related meds. for 10 days prior to the testing.  Since my testing is Mon., I have spent the whole week with watery eyes, constantly running nose and clogged ears.  I cannot wait to get my testing done so I can take allergy meds again!!

Ok, wow, I sound like a HUGE complainer, and I am so NOT that, so I will quit complaining and give you some GROOVY NEWZ!!  Our DT over at STAMPINSTANITY'S GROOVY GURLZ have a NEW DT COORDINATOR and that is TANYA!!  Thanks so much to TANYA for taking the reins:)

Our NEW CHALLENGE over at STAMP INSANITY BLOG is "GET YOUR GROOVE ON/GO RETRO."  The DT have created some super fun cards to inspire you.  Their links are in my sidebar and if you have time, I'm sure they would appreciate a visit from you!

You have until Weds. night on April 13 to complete your challenge project and link it up at  STAMP INSANITY BLOG.   There is no requirement to use STAMP INSANITY images, but if you have them, we'd sure LOVE to see some on your creation!!

For my card, I chose STAMP INSANITY "Nicholette" and to me she just screams "Retro Cool/Groovy!!"  I decked her out in gothy threads and I love the cool two-tone flower from Prima that I found in my stash.  Coloring done with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  DP is DCWV, American Crafts textured is CS, Cuttlebug folder used, Nesties cut all shapes, satin ribbon is SU.  Daubed edges of the image done with SU rich razzleberry ink which I also used with rubber stamp that I got from Michael's $ bin.  Bling also from Michael's.


Hope you like it and come play along!!

I got to play with DIGITAL DELIGHTS Presley the Pirate this week and I had so much fun coloring him and his shop with Copics, Atyou Spicas and a Sakura white gel pen.




I tried a new fold this week, called "Accordian" style.  Got the instructions from the resources area of Splitcoast Stampers.  I deciced to cut the images and sentimet with Nesties and then distress using Tim Holtz tea stain distress ink.  I thought it fit well with the pirate them.  American Crafts textured CS is base of card, I also used 2 DIGITAL DELIGHTS digi papers and sentiment, plus added eye patch to Presley's eye from DIGITAL DELIGHTS Pirate accessories set.  Polka do DP is from Kaisercraft.  I really hope you like it - I had a lot of fun with it!!  Bling is My Mind's Eye.

RAINBOW LADY'S CHALLENGE - LILAC WINE

Well, yesterday was interesting.  Besides cleaning my craft room, which was a huge disaster and still needs some work, and doing all the usual "mom" things, I managed to catch my index finger on my left hand in the hinges of a 3-part picture frame and pretty severly slice up my finger.  I am so lucky I am right handed because I literally have no use of that finger since it is so heavily bandaged.

Anyway, now that you have that hideous image stuck in your brain, welcome to a NEW CHALLENGE at RAINBOW LADY'S CHALLENGE this week.  Our challenge is "LILAC WINE."  Now, you can interpret this whatever way you choose and make a card, page, altered item, etc., just make sure it fits the challenge theme. 

You have until Weds., April 13 to enter your project at RAINBOW LADY'S CHALLENGE and we can't wait to see what you create!!  Our FABULOUS SPONSOR again this week is JOANNA SHEEN and you can check out her SHOP by clicking HERE


For my card, I used this great image from SHELLY'S IMAGES and colored it with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  Flower is Prima, Papers are SEI, Kaisercraft and My Mind's Eye DP and textured American Crafts CS.  All shapes cut using Nesties.  Sentiment from Verve clear stamps and pearl from Prima.  Hope you like it and will join us this week!! 

Other challenges: STAMPING VACATION - lavendar and celery
CHARISMA CARDZ - wedding/anniversary
