Here it is the beginning of the month and time for the new Crafty Awesomeness Challenge. This month’s sponsor is “Cute As A Button,” which features the wonderful digital Stamps of the owner – Francesca Lopez.
With Easter just around the corner, I chose the image called “Bunny Egg,” #IMG00186. I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and used the Die-namics Wonky Ovals to cute out the image. I believe the Fence is a “Do Hicky” Die Cut by Magnolia. The corner Dies are by Memory Box and called the “Snowflake Corner.” The cute papers are from an old Heidi Grace paper Stack called “Summer Showers.” I’m down to my last few pieces of paper and I’ve loved everyone of them!
I wanted to do something a little different, so my Easel Card turned into a sort of “Diorama.” LOL. The Grass, Bunnies and Eggs were in my stash and I believe they originally came from Joanns. The small paper eggs were cut with an old punch that I’ve had for years.
Come on over and join the fun! You could be a Winner!
CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:
This card’s adorable image is from “A Day For Daisies” and has been sitting in my colored pile for quite a while. I thought I’d finish the card before I get into more of the Fall/Winter/Christmas Cards.
It’s basically a very simple card which I colored with my Copic Markers. I did choose to round the corners and put some lines across the bottom with my Martha Steward Minnie Score Board. I also used a Zig Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen, but it’s very hard to see if the photo.
I also added some die cuts that I had recently bought. The word “Hi” is by Die-namics by MFT, the Sea Horse and Circles are by Memory Box, and the Coral is From Gina Marie Dies.
Thanks for looking, Dee
It’s time again for the Freebie Friday Progressional Challenge at Scrapper’s Delights. For this go-round, Janice has chosen one of her adorable beach kids…Beach Babe 2. If you participated in our last challenge, you can get her here for FREE, or if you got our last image but did’t get to complete the challenge, you can buy her here for $1. Either way, please come and join us.
We were asked to use a special “twist” on the card of either “no patterned paper” or making a “shaped card.” I chose to do the “no patterned paper, and I must say that I really found it very challenging.
I was lucky enough to find this beautiful brown paper in my stash and thought it looked perfect for a sandy beach. I’ve had it for years and it’s by the Paper Co. I also used some scraps of different shades of blue card stock and tore strips and layered them to give the effect of waves.
The Cloud and Sun dies are from “Die-namics” by My Favorite Things, and both the Chair and the Umbrella are from “Memory Box.” The Umbrella and Fish are popped to look 3-D.
I’ve colored everything with my Copic Markers, and I also added a rhinestone from my stash for her earring.

This is an adorable Mermaid digital stamp done by artist Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights and recently offered free in conjunction with Markers, Papers and Digis on their Facebook site.
By now you should all know how I feel about Mermaids…I love them, and this one is no exception. It was really fun to try to do something different with her.
I went through my old stack of 8-1/2 x 11 papers and found this underwater scene called Fish W/Whales by Masterpiece Studios. I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect paper!
The image is colored with Copic Markers and highlighted with a White Prisma Pencil and a White Gelly Roll Pen. The inside of the clam shell is brushed with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter, and I also used Ranger’s “Star Dust” Stickles on her clothes and tail.
The “Happy Birthday” die is a Die-namic by MFT and the Branch and Seahorse dies are by Memory Box.
Wow, it’s hard to believe that the year is half over and it’s time to start on our Christmas cards. But don’t fret…just hop over to the new “Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge” at Scrapper’s Delights. This time Janice has picked a Christmas image called “Santa’s Helper” and if you completed last month’s image, you can get this image here for Free. If not, it will be available for $1 in the Scrapper’s Delights Store.
The Design Team was asked to make a card with this image using non-traditional Christmas Colors. It’s hard to be in a Christmas mood when the temperature outside is in the 90s, but this card sure helped me to start thinking about how soon all the holidays will be upon us. I for one am going to start picking out all of my images now so I can get my coloring started. I’m not sure what you do, but I like to make a special card for each person on my card list.
My card base is pre-made from “The Paper Studio” by Hobby Lobby, and the pattern papers are from “The Disney All Season’s” Pad. The blue and white paper is by TPC Studios and is named “Woodland Winter Carnaval.”
I colored the “Santa’s Helper” image with my Copic Markers, plus I added a few ornaments that I cut from a scrap of paper from my scrap pile. The branches are made with a Memory Box Die call “Pine Branches,” and I just cut them in several different colors and glued them down. The small red bow is made from my embroidery thread and I’ve also highlighted some things on the card with “Ranger’s Star Dust Stickles” and a “Wink of Stella Gold Brush Tip Glitter Pen.”
I’m not sure if my attempt to make a “fur rug” was successful or not, but I’ve had this swatch of fur/feathers from an after Christmas Sale at Hobby Lobby forever and I thought I’d give it a try.
