Winter Is Coming

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our challenge is for you is to create a winter themed project.  Here is my inspiration project.


I used Come on Teddy and colored it with Copic markers.  I originally cut the stamp out using a die, but then I realized I colored the ground brown instead of snowy!  I fussy cut the image to get rid of all of the brown and created this sweet scene instead.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along.  You don't have to use a crafty Sentiments project, but if you do, you have the chance to win even more.


I hope you will play along.

Colorful Place

Hello!  It is time for the Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  I have a sweet project that is quick and easy.


I used Be Yourself and colored it with Copic markers.  I cut out the image and mat using Echo Park Stitched Rectangle dies.  You can find a similar set at Rubbernecker Stamps.  The sentiment is from the Freehand Border Phrase Set.  I put a piece of scotch tape over the word "colorful" and inked the sentiment with black ink.  Then I pulled the tape off and used a marker to make the word "colorful" colorful!  I cut out the sentiment using the Nested Squares Small Stitch Die Set.  A bit of lace, a flower and tiny banners and it was done!

Don't forget to join our challenge.  You have a chance to win cash for the Rubbernecker Stamps shop.

Classy and Fabulous

Hello Rubbernecker Stamps Fans!  It is time for my feature over on the blog and I have brought this bit of inspiration for you.


This is Fern.  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  I also used the sentiment Classy for this card.  Fern does have a matching die so you don't have to fussy cut if you don't want to!  I was digging through my bits and pieces box and found these stars that were left from a Silhouette cut and I thought they were perfect!  I love when I can use those extra bits left over that we hate to throw away!

Don't forget to check out our challenge.  You have a chance to win cash to spend in the Rubbernecker Stamps shop.

Hmmm...

This week at Creative Knockouts the challenge we bring to you is to use your favorite color combo.  I don't know about you, but mine change with the seasons.  So my project this week uses my favorite winter color combo.


This is Christmas Presents from Broken Fairy Designs.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  As I was coloring this sweet image, I realized she doesn't have anything that stands out specifically as Christmas.  This image could also make an awesome winter birthday card!  I have left a sentiment off until I decide.  I will probably use it for a birthday card because I am responsible for making cards for my co-workers' birthdays.  It will be good to have another in the stash!

Welcome Baby!

Hello everyone!  It is an exciting time at Sami Stamps!  Sami has welcomed a new member into her family!  There is no new release while Sami gets to know her sweet little addition, so we are all using baby themed images from the shop.  The challenge this month is to use a sentiment.


 I chose Looking at My Sweet for my project.  So precious!  I colored the image using Copic markers and cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo.  I wanted mother and child to be the center of attention, so I did a larger image with minimal embellishments. 

Since the theme this month is to add a sentiment, it is so super easy to play along!  Just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image to be eligible to win a prize.

Harvest Fae

This week at the Crafty Gals Corner, we have a Harvest Colors challenge for you.  One more shot at autumn before it gets cold!


I chose Fae 28 from Morgan's Art World for my project this week.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used the Silhouette to cut her out.  She has a touch of fairy dust on her wings thanks to a little clear Wink of Stella.

You have a chance to win 3 digital images from Morgan's Art World just by playing along.  You can click the badge below to pop over to the shop and have a look.

Favorite Witch

Welcome to my last Halloween post for the season!  I love Halloween and I am sad to see it go, but that means we are moving into the holiday season.  Our challenge at Crafty Sentiments is to use your favorite image.  I have so many favorite Crafty Sentiments stamps that I decided to pick my favorite Halloween stamp.


This is Witchy Stew and I colored her with Copic markers.  Such a sweet face on this little witch.  I cut the frame using a Silhouette cut file.  I had some technical difficulties with the first frame, so I cut off the bats and used them as embellishments.  I used some fun colorful paper straws to embellish the card as well as a cauldron die cut.  The paper is from Echo Park's Hocus Pocus collection that is available digitally on Snap Click Supply.

If you play along, you have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments prizes.  You win even more if you use a Crafty Sentiments product on your project.  Plus, you are entered in the drawing for Crafty Sentiments favorite, so you get an extra chance to win.


I hope you play along!

Winter Fun

It is time for a new challenge at Fabrika Fantasy.  This month's theme is Winter.  I have had this tag in my stash forever, and I thought this would be the perfect image to use with it!


This is Happy Snowman and he was colored with Copic markers.  I love the detail of the snowflakes in the image.  They have a little clear Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle.

You have a chance to win some awesome Fabrika Fantasy prizes for playing along.  You don't have to use a Fabrika Fantasy image, but if you do you are entered in a special drawing just for projects that used a Fabrika Fantasy image.  How awesome is that?!

Creeping By

It is time for another Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  This will be my last Halloween project and I am a little sad.  I love Halloween, but it just isn't the same now that the kids are grown!


This little mummy is from the Halloween Set 2 set and so is the sentiment.  I added a touch of color with my Copic markers to give him some dimension and popped him on this card with a little embossing for texture. 

Don't forget to check the challenge!  You could win some cash to spend in the store!

Witchly Wishes

October is winding down which means the end of the Halloween fun at Rubbernecker Stamps.  This is my featured project today.


This adorable witch is from the Halloween 2 set.  She was colored with Copics and cut by hand so her cape would be outside of the die.  She has silver Wink of Stella on her buckle and buttons.  The sentiment is from the same set.

Don't forget to check in on our current challenge.  You could earn some cash for the shop by playing along.

Wow!  Another week and another new challenge!  Time flies!  This week at Creative Knockouts our challenge is Halloween. 


I used Pumpkin Dumpling from Digital Delights and colored this sweet little face with Copic markers.  The tree was a leftover scrap from a Silhouette cut file and the paper was a freebie from Summer Driggs of Summertime Designs.  I stumbled across it ages ago and it was just waiting for the perfect project!  Her old blog and freebies are gone, but you can find Summer's designs on her new blog.  Her kits are gorgeous and so reasonable!

Digital Delights is our sponsor this week.  You have the chance to win a $5 gift certificate for the shop.  Click the badge below to wave your witchy wand and pop over to the shop.

Leaves Are Falling

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs our challenge to you is leaves.  That's right!  We want to see leaves on your project.


I went a little leaf crazy on my project!  I started with Clearing Leaves and colored her with Copic markers in some lovely fall tones.  Then I kept adding leaves with a die cut from the Silhouette Design Store, embossing, and ribbon!  It reminds me of raking leaves as a kid and the wind just kept blowing more off of the tree!  A few fall colored gems, and it was finished.

You have a chance at some great Crafty Sentiments prizes this week.  You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments product, but if you do and you win, your prize is even bigger!


Take a break from raking the leaves and come play along!
