Shirleys2Girls Twisted Thursday Challenge

Welcome to the Twisted Thursday Challenge from Shirleys2Girls. The challenge this week is to make a shaker card.

These Birthday Bash images are truly inspirational! I really love the The "Party Animal" and "Scrumptious" image from the new release from Shirleys2Girls. The dogs are so much like my chocolate lab Madison. I colored the image with Copic markers and added Stickles and rhinestones to bling it up! I used American Crafts DP and PTI cardstock and ribbon. I made a shaker for my card with the "Crown Icon" using lots of seed beads. I used my Nestabilities small circles and scallops to make the shaker and shaker frame. Lots of sewing for definition of the card background. On the inside I created a pop up card using the "Party Animal" image. It is so much fun. As the card is opened the image pops up. Both images are cut out and I added dimentionals for depth. This card has alot going on and it is perfect for that special birthday.

Make sure to stop by the store and check out all the new images. But wait, also stop in to all the DT for some celebration inspiration!

It's Dare to Be Sassy Thursday from Sassy Studio Designs. The challenge this week is to use three hearts and lots of bling. I colored the my image using Copic markers and added buttons, twine, and used a border punch from Martha Stewart. The card is based on a sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch.

If you would like to play along post the card with this challenge on theSassy Studio Designs Blog...You will have until next Wednesday 2/24, at midnight PST, to get your entry in! Make sure to use a SASSY STUDIO image and link your creation in the comments section of the Dare to Be Sassy Thursday post!! A winner will be announced on Friday 2/26 The winner will receive their choice of 2 SSD images!!

Pixie Dust Studio New Release "Paradise"

It's time for the new relase from Pixie Dust Studios!. The release is called Paradise. Oh, are these little images ever sweet!
I made my card using the Wedding Couple new digital stamp from Pixie Dust Studios. I colored my image using Copic Markers. I used a bingo card bought locally as inspiration for this card along with the challenge this week from Card Positioning Systems. I also followed the challenge at DareU2Digistamp. I added a Tim Holtz binder clip and a felt heart, rhinestones, pearls and a ribbon.

Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. Also, make sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they created. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible.

Fred She Said/Sweet Sketch Wednesday

I used one of the new digital stamps from Fred, She Said called "Corner Rose". I colored the roses with my Copic Markers and added accents with my opague white pen. I used dimentionals to pop up my roses from the leaves to make the image look more 3-D. I used paper and cardstock from my stash and added pearls to highlight my sentiment. Machine stitching was added for definition. I used the Sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for my inspiration.

Make sure you check out the Fred, She Said Store and check out all the wonderful digitals they have!

I made a Sneak Peek using an image from the Paradise new release on Thursday February
18th from Pixie Dust Studio. It image I chose to work with today is Flying Friends. Arn't they adorable? I colored the image with Copic Markers. I used DP from Basic Grey Crate and cardstock from PTI. I added machine stitching for definition. I added twine and a charm to embellish my card. I made this card with the DareU2Digistamp challenge in mind, using punches. I used a border punch by Martha Stewart. I also took the Beli challenge and used a dragonfly in my design.
