Bling It!

It's challenge day at Lollipop Crafts. Sorry for the late post but I have a sick little boy.  :(  Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Digi's with Attitude! Oh they have such cute stuff!

The theme Kris picked this week is to Bling it! You've got it and we want to see it. Anything that sparkles and shines, rhinestones, glitter, stickles, whatever! Any project will do, you don't have to just create a card, you can do an ATC, a 3D project, altered art ...it's limitless

Here's my card for this week's challenge.  I have been working on some circle journals so I decided to use the scrap paper I had left over to create my challenges this week.  It was fun to see what I could come up with.

The paper is an old Prima line that i have had forever.  I added some rhinestones and stickles from my stash to bling her up.  Colored of course with my copics!

A Fairy Hello

Hello! I hope that you moms out there had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday.  There is nothing I am more proud of than being a mom to my little Riley.  I can't believe he'll be 2 in July!  Time does fly.

Today is a new challenge on the Lollipop Crafts blog. We are being sponsored by Soft Pencil this week



and here is the link to their site and you can check out all the great digital images & all that Elizabeth has to offer.  Our challenge this week is a fancy folds one...so we'd like to see creations with more than one fold on them.  Here is mine for this week.

The image is from SoftPencil's Tinytwinies which the DT got to play with.  So cute. This is the Charming Flowers image. How adorable is this!  I colored her using my Copics. I used some Sarah Hurley digital papers for this card. She has some great stuff so make sure you check the link! The main butterfly was cut using a scrap piece from the card and then the other accent butterflies I cut out using some scrap cardstock and then I doused them with versamark and applied some clear embossing powder to them to give them some shine and some texture.  I also added a little bit of bling to them.  The ribbon was part of a swap on Swap-bot that I received.  The sentiment is using my tiny type letters.  I haven't used these for so long I practically had to blow the dust off. I also added some stickles to her wings and the fairy dust that she sprinkled.

I hope you like the card and I hope you'll join in on our challenge this week. Sorry my picture is so dark, it's been rainy here the last few days (which I guess is better than snowy right??)

Romantic

Romance..everyone loves it...So that is what I decided to do my card on this week for the Crazy Challenge. Our theme is actually ANYTHING GOES, (my favorite) so you can put together whatever you like! The sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Lou

Here is my card for this challenge

I used the Bride and Groom image from Digital Delights, which I colored with copics and added a bit of stickles to her dress and veil.  The DP was just some pieces from my stash.  I added a seed bead flower that was sent to me in a swap as well as some felt hearts and a little metal tag.  The last bit was some silver cord into a bow behind the flower.  The actual sketch for this card came from the Scrapbook and Cards Today Cardmaps book.

I hope you'll join our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create!
