Shirleys2Girls April in Paris New Release Blog Hop

Join me here on Rue DE Rivoli for my part of this fabulous little Paris tour. If you came here from Rue du pont neuf at Judy's blog then you are in the right place.

I made my card using the new Shirleys2Girls Promenade image. My Parisian shopper has bags full of goodies and her loyal French Poodle by her side. This image is fantastic (said with a Parisian accent:)) My image is colored with Copic Markers. I used K&Co. DP and PTI cardstock. I added Tiara Stickles for the bling on the poodle's leash. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and some felt ribbon. Machine stitching was added for definition. I wanted my card to look sophisticated.

After visiting my street in Paris head over to S2G's Challenge Blog and you have completed your blog hop tour. If you get lost along the way, head back over the the S2G Challenge Blog for your road map.

Don’t forget to play along with us for our Twisted Thursday Challenge. The TWIST is to use the word MERCI on your card/project.

Make sure and leave a comment. Three winners will be chosen from the blogs and they will win a prize. Also, there is a grand prize up for grabs! S2G always has the best prizes:)

Pixie Dust Studio Challenge

The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to make a project using an image that flies. I chose Bee, Frog, and Crown image from the Princess Parade new release. The bee flies and the frog eats flies! I should get extra credit, right? I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used Cosmo Cricket design paper and PTI cardstock. I added machine stitching for definition. I participated in 2Sketches4U and used their sketch for inspiration for my card. I added rhinestones, Stickles, and rick rak ribbon.

Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!

Pink Cat Studio/Simply Scrapping Crafts/Stamptacular Sunday/Copic Lessons

I made this card for the Simply Scrapping and Crafts Card Challenge and Copic Lessons/Tutorials. I am the team leader for the Copic Group and the challenge this week is to color an image using Tutorial 5 to color skintone/bodies. I chose this adorable digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio. It is called Lily Bee. I colored her with Copic markers and placed her upon Cosmo Cricket Early Bird DP and PTI cardstock. I cut out my flower card with my Cricket Expression machine using the Wild Card Cartridge. I cut out felt flowers and sewed on buttons. Around the center of the flower I stamped my sentiment. I used the Card Challenge Sketch from Simply Scrapping and Crafts for inspiration. I also used the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge which was to create a project that was Just4Girls.

Pink Cat Studio/2Sketches4U/Stamptacular Sunday

Oh no! Lily is sick. Poor Lily from Pink Cat Studio is under the weather and even has a temperature. I colored little Lily with Copic Markers and highlighted her with white opague pen. I used the new Basic Grey Green at Heart DP collection and PTI cardstock. I added a various "get well" sentiments from my stamp collection and a ribbon from PTI. Inside my get well "card box" I designed is a package of tissue, tea bags and herbal cough drops to help the recepient feel better. I used the sketch from 2Sketches4U for inspiration and made my project Just4Girls from the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

Meljen's Designs/Sweet Sunday Sketch/Stamptacular Sunday

I am so proud to be on the Design Team for Meljen's Designs. Her digital stamps are adorable and so much fun to color. I colored this little Firefly Fairy with Copic Markers. I added lots of machine stitching for definition. For bling, rhinestones and dew drops were added. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl line and PTI cardstock. For inspiration I used the sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge site and made a card Just4Girls using the challenge at Stamptacular Sunday.
