Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays- Manly Challenge

It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays!  This week's challenge is "Manly" (Male themed projects).  Our challenge sponsor is Bugaboo digi stamps.

 This weeks challenge winner will receive 7 digi images!!!

I was so excited to make this weeks card because I finally purchased my first set of Prisma Color Pencils!  I used my Michael's 50% off coupon and still spent way to much. I was seriously wondering if I had gone crazy when I checked out, but as soon as I used them I was HOOKED!  I absolutely love them!  I can not believe the difference from using my Crayola colors from the Primsa ones.  I will now have to start buying individual colors to complete my color collection.

Supplies Used:

  • Digi Stamp- Bugaboo
  • Cardstock- Brazill
  • Pattern Paper-
  • Ribbon- Handmade Bows by myself from Offray Ribbon
  • Jewels and Glitter Glue- Unknown

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge-More Than 2 Layers

It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays!  This week's challenge is More Than 2 Layers.  Our challenge sponsor is Pure Innocence, you can check out her Etsy Shop here.  She currently has all her digi's on sale for only $1.65!!  This weeks challenge winner will receive 3 digi images!!!

I used an adorable Pure Innocence bath tub digi for this birthday card I am giving to my Cousin.  She is a full time working Mom of 2 and will love the thought of a little "Me Time" that I think this card portrays.

My First Dustin Pike Challenge!

I am super excited to announce that I am entering my FIRST Pike's Playground Challenge over on Dustin Pike's Blog!  I have become a huge fan of his digi's and all artwork and recently I made my first Purchase of Digis!  I have only dabbled with freebies but broke down and bought some of Dustin's while he had a crazy awesome sale! 

My Little 8 yr old cousin had a birthday today and I made him a card using Dustin Pike's Dino Birthday Set.  It turned out so cute and I had a really good time coloring!  His Mom loved the card and I received several comments on it.

My interpretation of the Sketch
Front of Card: I didn't modify this digi much other than adding Jeweled eyes which are larger than the originals.  I did add a glitter paint to the Blue areas.

Inside of Card:  I really enjoyed coloring a full scene digi.  I will be looking for more of these.  Glitter Paint has been added to the Dino's eyes and the Bones.

Products Used:
  • Cardstocks- Brown-Recollections, Green- Recollections
  • Pattern Paper-Recollections Great Outdoors
  • Digis- Dustin Pike's Dino Birthday
  • Ribbon- Unknown ($1 bin @ Michael's)
  • Jewels- Hot Fix

Be sure to stop by and join in the fun of this weeks challenge!

For this Challenge I decided to make my Hello Kitty Cowgirl Birthday Card I had planned for my Niece's Birthday coming up in March.  She will be 3!  Wow how time flies!!  I love Hello Kitty and Country themes and she seems to like them as well so this worked out perfectly!

I love to add simple little changes to digi's to make them my own.  For this Hello Kitty I added faux stitching to her bow and bandana to give it more of a country feel to me.  I also added a little glitter to glam it up, and Hot fixed Jewels to her eyes.  The hand cut matte has been faux stitched as well to give it a leather pelt look and of course I added Jewels to make it pop!  I am a jewel freak!
