GCC0427 - What's Shaking?

It's Monday so that means there is another challenge posted over at the Outlawz. Come on and join in on the fun. This week, the theme is Anything Goes since it is the last Monday of the month. 

The sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine and the image is Senor Pickles. I thought this was a super cute image and would be great for a Cinco de Mayo type card. The margarita has real sea salt on the rim and Glossy Accents on the drink and lime to make it stand out and look more real. There is actually red Stickles on the pompom balls of the hat. I used this ScrapMuch? sketch from Pinterest. I love this sketch. I may be using this one again. Of course after the fact, I realized that the red piece below the zig zag was supposed to be longer and should have gone more to the right. I embossed the Bazzill piece with the SU large polka dot ef, but turned it inside out so would be more subtle. This saying is so appropriate for a frog in a margarita isn't it?

GCC0420 - sweet

It's Monday so that means there is another challenge posted over at the Outlawz. Come on and join in on the fun. This week, the theme is to use fabric on your project. I used felt (hearts) and the hot pink material below the grid die cut is some sort of fabric that came around a bouquet of flowers.

The sponsor this week is: Deedee's Digis and the image is A Little Something.

I used this sketch from Pinterest. It worked perfectly for this card. I used the bright Momento paper pack that I just love again. These papers and the bright colors just make my heart happy. I love that when you use a different accent color (this time I chose to accent the green), it makes it look so different. 

Challenges Submitted to:

Papers: Neenah, Hammermill Digital Cardstock, Momento, Bazzill (lime green), SU (pixie pink).
Stamps: DeeDee's Digis - A Little Something, SU So Very.
Accessories: Cricut, Edge to Edge Cartridge, Felt, Hot pink flower bouquet fabric, Cuttlebug, Sizzix dies (labels and scallop border), Lawn Fawn (heart), homemade enamel dots, pop dots, white puff paint, Glossy Accents.

GCC0413 - You make my day bright and April Showers

It's Monday so that means there is another challenge posted over at the Outlawz. Come on and join in on the fun. This week, the theme is Rainbows and/and or rain.

The Sponsor this week is Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and I absolutely loved the paper bundle we had to choose from. I couldn't decide so asked Lisa to provide me with both. I love the rainbow and raindrop papers and the raincoat and rain boots. I had an idea for each as soon as I saw the paper selections. I changed one of the patterned banners after I posted it last night. I kept looking at it and it didn't feel right. I wanted to use red for the rain boots on the chic (and had a scrap just the right size sitting on my desk that was perfect in size) so felt it needed one more pop of red in the card. I used this card for the rainbow card and this card for the raincoat card as my inspiration. 

Challenges submitted to: 

Papers: Neenah, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles (rainbow, raindrops, rain coat, rain boots), The Paper Studio, Mira Mi, Amy Tangerine, SU daffodil, SU blue, SU brilliant blue, Bazzill (red, orange for chic and sun, white for clouds).
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Cricut, Create a Critter cartridge (chic), Small Talk Tags and Frames (sun), Phrases (clouds), Prima flowers, bling, pop dots, SU label punch.
Stamps: Hero Arts, Studio G.
Techniques: paper piecing (chic), digital papers

GCC0406 - Happy Spring!

There is another challenge posted over at the Outlawz. I'm posting this late as I've been super busy with family in town and activities surrounding that.

The Sponsor this week is Dr. Digis and the image is Trotsky. The theme this week is Happy Spring and must include an animal.

I used this sketch I saw on Pinterest. This would be a great sketch for multiple patterned papers. Love it. Think it may be one I use more than just this one time. I love all the layers and how they overlap. I fussy cut the image.

Papers: Neenah, Hammermill Digital cardstock, We R Memory Keepers - Spring packet (12x12 and 6x6)
Stamps: Dr. Digis - Trotsky, Studio G
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, circle punches, homemade enamel dots, corner rounder, pop dots
