A Boy And His Dog-Creative Moments Challenge #141

Here I am once again with a fantastic challenge from Creative Moments Challenge Blog.

For Challenge #141 the theme is a minimum of 2 flowers on your creation.

My sponsor this challenge is

The image that I have chosen is Cinema Chaplin. It is an adorable image of a boy and his dog. I have boys and dogs so this one tugs at my heart. ❤️ I don’t very often use flowers on masculine cards so this is a bit of a challenge for me but I am up for it!

I used Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs paper. One of the papers had a beautiful floral print in gorgeous, vintage colours. The colours of this floral paper were incorporated into the Cinema Chaplin stamp as to coordinate the image with the paper. The floral paper is what I used as the flowers requested in the theme. I layered up several patterned papers and knotted lace ribbon to give the look of depth while using 3D adhesive to lift the characters.

Products used: Mari digi image, Spectrum Noir markers, Chameleon markers, Graphic45 paper sticker and chipboard , Recollections cardstock, miscellaneous ribbon.

Dear Stress Let’s Break Up!-Creative Moments Challenge #140

Welcome back! Today I am going to share my creation for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog Challenge #140.

The theme this time around is relaxing/ meditation as April 7 is apparently No Housework Day! I think everyday should be No Housework Day if you ask me!

My digital stamp is from Decosse‘s Dynamite Doodles.

There are lots of downloadable patterned papers, digital stamps and verses and sentiments. I have chosen a sentiment that I think sort of goes with the theme of relaxing/meditation. I have paired it up with a Tim Holtz stamp that suits the sentiment. All paper and cardstock is CTMH, coloured with Spectrum Noir markers.

I made a second card with another Decosse’s sentiment. I just printed it out and added some layers of Recollections cardstock and some paper flowers. It really was quite simple. Here it is>>>

Thanks for looking!

Baby Giraffe-Stamprints

Welcome to my first Stamprints blog post. I am so excited to be a member of this very talented team! The image that I have chosen for my project this month is Baby Giraffe. You can find this adorable image here Stamprints Etsy.

I started by printing 2 of the images in two different sizes. I coloured the first smaller image in traditional giraffe colours . The slightly larger image was coloured with some fun, unexpected colours! I have used Spectrum Noir and Chameleon markers for both.

Here is the completed traditional card. I used some very old, retired CTMH paper, CTMH sequins, recollections cardstock, misc ribbon, and sentiment stamp by Kraftin Kimmie.

Here is the completed fun card! I have used DCWV patterned cardstock, AC vellum, misc sequins, and sentiment stamp by Kraftin Kimmie.

Red & White Queen-Creative Moments Challenge #137

Welcome to my Creative Moments project for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog Challenge #137. The theme this week is all about fairies and other magic/mystic/fantasy creatures.

My sponsor for this round of challenges is

There are so many pretty digi stamps at the Mari Digi Stamps store! My chosen digi is Red and White Queen. I thought this would be part of a really cute and fanciful table centre piece. I started by colouring the image with Spectrum Noir markers.

I used permanent metallic markers to colour the crowns and buckles. Fussy cutting is not my friend! 😕

The cup was cut with my Cricut.

Here is the complete project! I hope you like it!

Supplies used: Mari Digi stamp, Spectrum Noir markers, Chameleon markers, DCWV card stock, & various ephemera.

Snow On The Mountains-Creative Moments Challenge #136

I am here again to share my creation for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog. This week the theme is weather & a sentiment.

My sponsor for this week is

You can find your way to the challenge and the image by clicking the above pictures!

I had a wonderful time working with the mountain image from Scribbles. I love the look of the mountains and can see them most days from my living room window! We live just a couple of hours from one of the most beautiful places on earth! ( I may be biased 😊) My sons & husband ski. I do not, but I occasionally go with them and read in the lodge. Sometimes I bring projects to work on. I do wish that I enjoyed skiing but I have tried it and it really isn’t my thing. I grew up on the prairies so there was not much opportunity to learn.

I coloured the mountain image with Spectrum Noir markers and used a white embossing powder covered with UTEE to give the look of snow.

The plaid paper, spotted acrylic sheet (used back side of), compass sticker, bear & tree diecut as well as the sentiment stamp were all CTMH.

You will find that clicking the images above will take you directly to Creative Moments, and the video game guy at Bugaboo Stamps.

The image that I chose is Video Game Guy. I love this video game guy! I chose this image because it reminds me of my sons, especially my oldest. Gaming & snacks, with a little garbage thrown in, is his normal. LOL! It pretty much sums up their free time when they aren’t playing ball hockey.

Here is my video game guy project. I decided to make an easel card. It has been ages since I have made one. This card is approximately 6″x6″. This card is the perfect size to contain gift cards! 😉

<<<<<<<<

I coloured the video game guy with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, the “Fun and Games” and circuit board are part of the CTMH Tech Speak Stamp Set. Also from CTMH is the blue cardstock and brads. The fun, game-themed paper is from a stack of Crate Paper called Boys Rule. I used Recollections kraft cardstock and black Staz-on ink to complete the card.

I have also entered into the following challenges.
