ME4Y Shaped card

This card made me smile so big. I had never made a shaped card
before and was really at a loss when saw that that was our
challenge this week. So, started looking through all my
crafty goodness and found this oh so cute bag. So here is my
shaped card.

I took a small digi that I had and blew it
up 200% twice. Once on the yellow and then
again on the clear vellum. I stamped some
candy pieces and placed them between the two
and double up on the bow at 200% as well.
For the sentiment I used a thank you stamp
then cut it out with my scalloped oval cutter
and tied it with some trendy twine.
Really enjoyed making this one. Hope you have
fun making yours.

Create a card inspired by the provided sketch

Welcome to another ME4Y challenge.
This week is all about sketches which is 
a challenge that I love.
Here is the sketch for this week
and here is my card using our sponsors digi.

Everything that I used on this car with the exception of
the digi is out of my scrap box and the sentiment. Used a Straw 
back ground paper to  set my little scarecrow on.  My pearls are
white that I colored with my copics to match. The sentiment is from
Verve Stamps.

RCS #13 - Black & White Cards

I love black and white cards. They are so
eligant and sharp looking.

For this card I used a floral stamp and white embossing powder on 
black card stock. Did the same for the sentiment. I 
cut everything out with my Sizzix shapeablitlities cutter.
I used a cool border strip down the left side and topped it off
with two silk flowers and some pearl strands.

RCS #13 - Black & White Cards

Here is another one of my Black and White
cards that I put together today. I have used
this stamp set so many times for thank you's
I have lost track.

This set is from DOTS stamps. I have had it for many years,
but it is still my favorite when doing Thank You's and
Birthday cards as I have both sets.  Simple and quick
when you need one in a hurry. It's truly a stamp
and go set. I hope you enjoy it.

ME4Y Halloween Card with Banner

This weeks challenge was to make a card using one of
Mel Jen's digi's. I love these digi's. So here is the digi I
chose and how I put my card together.

I used a 51/4 X 7" card for this so my digi would be a bit larger.
I used my Sizzix swirl embossing folder to emboss the back ground
of this card. Then I copied my digi twice. Once on the orange back
ground paper then again on white. I fussy cute the witch out and then
laid it over the top of the one that was on the orange back ground. Perfect fit.
I used a piece of Trendy Twine along the side. The banner is from Jolene's.
I think she turned out pretty cute.

some great Digi's from them.

ME4Y Bugaboo Sketch Card

Welcome to another Sketch Challenge.
This week we are honored to have our wonderful sponsor
This week I  chose a Halloween card with one of 
Bugaboo's fabulous DIGI's. So here is what I 
created using this weeks challenge sketch.

I love this DIGI.

Using all the colors of Halloween, Yellows, black, Orange
and brown. I love how this turned out. 
I had these wonderful fall buttons, so I cut the backs
off of them and placed them on the black squares which 
really gave this card some dimension.
This is just a fabulous DIGI from Bugaboo. Love
all the detail and sillouette.
I love this picket fence with the bats. This is one of 
Martha Stewarts border punches that I found at a 
garage sale for a fraction of the store cost. Love  
deals like that.

We hope that you will join us for this weeks sketch challenge.
Bugaboo is offering an amazing 7 DIGI stamps as
the prize. Wonderful right. So come join us. I look forward
to seeing all the wonderful ideas you will all come up with.

ME4Y-Thanksgiving card using Kraft Paper.

This weeks challenge is to make a card using Kraft paper.
Now I have to admit that I didn't know what Kraft paper was.
I didn't know that it is a color of paper, but now I do. So 
here is my Thanksgiving card using Kraft cardstock, with my 
Stamping Boutique Digi.

This is also my first Copic Marker Colouring task since I
went to the Copic class last week-end. Now I still have along ways
to go, but I am proud of my new shading techniques on this digi.
I even used my markers to change the color of the ribbon. It 
originally was white, but I went over it with my YR27 and
changed the ribbon color to perfectly match my card colors. I distressed the
edges with Tim Holzs ink and cut out my swirls with Sizzix dies.

This weeks sponsor is
they are giving away 3 digi's of your choice.
