Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays Challenge-Mother's Day

It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays
 This week's challenge is "Mother's Day." 
Our Challenge Sponsor is Digi Darla. The winner will receive $10 Certificate to the store. 

The Story:
This weeks Story is very simple... it's a Mother's Day Card lol.  I love to go shopping with my Mother, our favorite shopping is at the Dollar Store and Craft Stores!  I haven't been able to shop with my Mother since I moved in Nov and miss it very much.  I can't wait til she gets to come visit or we get the chance to go see my family!!

Project How To's:

Scallop Matte- My Mother cut out some scalloped papers for me from her Cuttlebug. (Thanks Mom) One of my embellishments had white faux stitching on it so I decided to stick all around the scallop Matte.  It gave it more of a clothing feel I think.  

Digi- I didn't add a bow this time lol.  I did have to do something to the digi because that is how I work.  I added a few jewels to her sandals, Her hat had cute little flowers on it as well as the shopping bag.  I was lucky to have 3 super small flower jewels so I placed them on the digi.  It turned out so cute.  I also popped the Digi up to bring her off the paper.  I love how this card turned out and I hope my Mom does too!!

Supplies Used:
  • Digi- Digi Darla
  • Papers- Solids: Recollections and Stash,                                                                                         Pattern: Hot off the Press, Paper Pizzaz Retro
  • Embellishments: Hot off the Press Paper Pizzaz Retro

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday Challenge-Ribbon and Bows

It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays
 This week's challenge is "Ribbon and Bows." 
Our Challenge Sponsor is Circle B Enterprises
The winner will receive a $10 gift cerficate to Veronica's Scrapbooking Store!!

The Story:
I love Bows!!A sweet teenager I know from back home is an amazing dancer.  She recently won platinum all the way around at her competition.  Miss Maggie had also had some beautiful pictures taken of her and I used it as my inspiration for the card I made for her.


Project How To's:

Circle Surrounding Digi- I cut out an aqua blue Circle, I then punched holes with a pin.  I threaded ribbon in and out of the holes to give it a whimsical feel.  It still needed some "Pop" so I added black jewels with hot glue.  I liked the look of the glue surrounding the jewels in almost a water drop look!  I adhered the digi to the center for a beautiful finish!!
Digi- I love this little digi.  It is one of my first full price paid for digi's lol but it was positively perfect!  It reminded me of Miss Maggie so much.  Since the challenge is ribbon and bows I added teeny tinny bows to her ballet slippers and her golden hair.  When I say Teeny Tiny I mean just that these are about 1/4inch, if that!  I added glitter to the white shirt and the white flowers in her hair.  She looks just like Miss Maggie don't ya think?

Side Embellishments- For the side embellishments.  I layered a ribbon strip.  Added 2 aqua blue Mini bows and 2 cute little blue stars. 

  As a stay at home Mom to my 2 year old son, I do crafts for my sanity lol.  I love crafting bows!  You can check them out on my facebook page, I have several styles for fantastic prices! Click on the words Creations by Shelli to see all the fantastic products I make.  This little ballet clip is only $.50!!

Supplies Used:

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays Challenge- Birthday

It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays
 This week's challenge is "Birthday." 
Our Challenge Sponsor is Robins Fetish

The Story:
  This week I simply wanted to make a few birthday cards.  I had my Aunt and Grandmother in mind when I was making this card.  I believe they will love this cute little birdie image from Robyn's Fetish.
Project How To's:
Sentiments- I punched out 4 1" circles from a bright pink scrap paper.  After cutting out my sentiment I realized it was just too plain! (see picture below).  I have really loved lately to use my colored pencils and blending technique to give an "inked" look. After I did one circle this way I loved it!  I decided to bring the sentiment front and center by inking the edges of the rectangles.  I think they turned out fantastic.  It is Amazing what a few more minutes can do to your projects. 
Digi- The Birdie Digi is from Robyn's Fetish (super cute digis!) I added a darker shade of pink around the center of the flowers to give them a little pop!  As usual in my pictures you can not tell but I added glitter to the flower centers and on the darker blues of the Birdie's feathers.
Supplies Used:
  • Digi-Robyn's Fetish
  • Papers-All was from my Stash and Scraps
  • Ribbon- Bow (handmade by me) from offray ribbon
  • Jewels- Topaz Hot fix
