PCC188 Sketch Challenge the Tattered Bear

So the minute I saw the sketch for this week at Paper Craft Crew, I knew what I wanted to do.
I got Beary Sweet - Technique Tuesday stamp set last week and had to use it!

 I decided to take the stamp into a different direction, a tattered bear :) 
I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolors for this project.
While my flower is bright and beautiful... the bear is given an old well-loved look.
This teddy reminds me one the ones we had as children!

Other wonderful items on my card
Craftin Desert Divas - Fancy Frames
Queen & Co  - Brown Wood Washi
Echo Park - Spring 6x6 paper pad
MFT Stamps - Chocolate Brown cardstock

Hope you liked today's card :)

Until next time...

SIP#41 Congrats

Hey, everyone... I couldn't resist SIP's challenge!

Starting with the Congrats die and sentiment from YNS!
I did the congrats and the card base in Kraft cardstock from MFT Stamps!
The watercolor paper was done with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, Zig CCRB in pinks and beige's.
I used some black elements on the card to add a bit more color.. my embellishments are from SU and Queen & Co.  I also used my new Corrugated Folder from Taylored Expressions!

:) Until next time...


Well now... when I saw the colors over at GDP I had to give it a try!
I started with the YNS set Whatnot Sentiments Four (CYNS172), and selected two awesome sentiments from the set, Congratulations and on your engagement.
As many of you know my two older daughters have gotten engaged this year, and with all the talk of weddings,  this stamp set was clearly the winner!

I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolors for this project, in Oranges, Blues and Browns.
I also added some SU white cotton ribbon and three Doodlebug Orange, Matte Sprinkles.
I used watercolor paper, chocolate from MFT Stamps, and 120# white from SSS.

I hope you like my card

Until next time,

Today, Paper Craft Crew has a fabulous sketch challenge for you... 

Wow...  how cute is this stamp set, I recent got an order from Simon Says Stamp and this awesome set from Your Next Stamp, called Sprinkles Sugar Rush... When it arrived I knew it was going to be colored in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. 

I added some MFTStamps  Plaid Patterns 6x6 paper to my card, and it rocks!
I added two of the tiny gummi bears in the corners just peeking in to see what's going on...
I used my SSS Stiched dies, in two sizes and some gold thread I picked up from Walmart.
and finished it off with a bow in bright green. 

Until next time

CYCI#110 A sketch challenge by Elizabeth

Totally went Echo Park for this challenge!

I love how easy it is to use one of their kits to create a quick and easy card! This one is called Lucky Charm and I picked it up from Simon Says Stamp for only 6.99 (plus shipping).
Which was a steal, considering I can make a bunch of cute cards or a cool scrapbook layout!
The round scallop die is Stitched in Circles dies from Craftin Desert Divas!
The only other thing that I added was a card base and a few gold pearls from Queen & Co.

Don't forget to play along at CanYouCaseIt? this week!!!!
