DD5: Make your own Embelishments!!

Good Morning!! It's time for another "Double Delight" challenge. This week is Kris' turn to pick the challenge. She chose to make your own embelishments. So use this weeks free D2D digi from Faith, Heartfelt Wishes, and make your own embellies. As you can see, or maybe not, but I made a shaker card. The snow globe is actually that, a snow globe. For my embelishment, I made snow. How you ask? Well, I took 2 styrofoam balls and rubbed them together to make little snow-like flakes. I also put some snow underneath the globe. I know it's a bit crooked, but I tried. Them I made the flower and the heart button. The sentiment is from an old SU set, not sure what it's called (ooops).

Designed2Delight is sponsoring the Embelishment challenge over at Crafters Digital Art Center.
This challenge runs for 2 weeks beginning today (July 29-August 11, 2010)
There's even a prize for the winner, AND a FREE DIGITAL STAMP for everyone to grab!! So be sure to stop on by and take a look.

Also, be sure to stop by the D2D blog and take a look at what embellisments the DT have made. Very nice things to add to your card. Ok, I'm signing off now. It's late and I'm headed to bed:) Thanks for stopping by. Oh, remember to link your card to the D2D blog and Double Delight blog to get your name entered in for a GC to shop at the D2D store. Thanks~

LLWWC#49 Shake It!

Hello all!! Today I have a card that I made for the La La Land weekly challenge. Maureen has challenged us to make a shaker card. SCS has a good tutorial here if you're like me and never made one before. I must say it was fairly easy to make. I used the La La with a rose for my card and also used the blossom nesties for the shaker part. The flourish is a sizzix die that I had and the dp is DCWV. I struggled a bit as to what to put in my shaker, but finally decided to put micro beads in.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Remember this Sunday starts the big Birthday Bash for La La. That's right, she's turning 1. The games and fun begin Sunday August 1 - 9.

La La Challenge: Upcycle it!

Hello everyone!! I do wish the weekend was a bit longer, but that's ok. I have a card here I'd like to show you. I made this for the La La weekly challenge. The challenge is for us to upcycle something that we would have thrown away. I used a bottle cap and used it in the center of my flower. I used sitting La La which can can be purchased here. Oh I also used some new Basic Grey paper that I just got, called Olivia. Very cute patterns in this pack. The sketch I used is from this weeks Friday Sketchers.

Just a reminder that La La is turning 1 year old. August 1 - 9 there are going to be games, prizes and a bunch of fun, so please be sure to stop by the La La Land Challenge blog to get all the info on that.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week ahead.

Hello stampers!! Today I have a card I made using the digi "Kate and Lizzy: sisters" from Sweet n Sassy stamps. The sketch is from The Sweet Stop sketch challenge. This week is a sketch with a spin, to use a tag somewhere on your card.
I'm going to send this card to my sister, Kris. She has been such an inspiration to me over the years and I love her so much.

I used dp from K&Co. and then added some ribbon and a prima flower. As you can see, the tag says 'sisters' and there are a few dew drops on there as well. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great week.

DD3: Popcorn Chicken Anyone??

Good Morning Stampers!! Today we start another challenge over at Double Delight. It's in conjunction with the Designed 2 Delight progressive challenge. If you played in last weeks d2d challenge, then you recieved this weeks image free. Isn't 'Cluck' a cutie. If you missed last weeks challenge, you can purchase "Cluck" here.

This week is Kris' turn to pick the challenge. She chose to "POP IT UP". All you have to do is use this weeks free digi, and pop it up. Either the whole image or just parts of him, like the wing, or the head and wing. It's up to you:)

You will have until next Thursday, July 22 at midnight PST to get your entries in. All of you who enter this month will get your name into a drawing for a GC to go shopping at the D2D store. *Ü*.

For my card, I printed out some chicken wire that I googled. (My daughter thinks it looks like honeycomb on the yellow) I chose to pop up the wing. I also popped up the little chicken in the corner. I used the fence punch from MS along with some brown ribbon. I used my circle nesties to cut the image out and then added a second Cluck to the corner and had him/her laying down. Oh, I also used my wood grain embossing folder up on top.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Remember to link your card to both Double Delight Challenge and D2D blog. Thanks:)

La La Land: Black & White plus RED!!

Hello everyone. Here is my card for the La La Land Weekly Challenge. The challenge this week is to use Black and White plus one color of your choice. So for my color, I chose red. The classic red, black and white, always so elegant and pretty together. I used the Sweet La La that I purchased a while ago from the store. I made up my own sketch and I also made the rose in the corner. Instead of putting a pearl in the center, I used a diamond. There are some red pearls in each corner and I used a ek success border punch.
One player will win a $10 credit towards any rubber stamp in the store and 3 of you will be awarded the TOP 3 badge to display on your blog. But in order to win or get top 3, you must use a La La Land stamp or digi.
I noticed that a lot of the DT's colored their image in grey tones. That's awsome, I on the other hand did not. I decided to go with the usual coloring with copics. Just added a touch of red here and there. I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. Happy Blogging*Ü*

For my card, I used dp from DCWV Sweet stack and some buttons, ribbon and a few dew drops. The little sentiment is from SU. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for stopping by *Ü*
