The Challenge #92 - Colors

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for our new challenge over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge.  Each week we have a different type of challenge and this week it's a color challenge.  I hope you find some time to play along!



I added distress ink in Twisted Citron, along with some water to create my background.  Then I stamped the little butterfly from the Studio Katia Mini Thank You on my card.  I used the coordinating die to cut the sentiment from black cardstock.  Lastly, I added a few sequins to give my card some sparkle.

Sugar & Spice

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using some sweet Neat & Tangled and Doodlebug Design products.


These sweet little kids are from the Say Yes To Donuts stamp set.  I colored them with copics and then used the coordinating Nice & Neat Dies to diecut them.  I cut the sentiment panel from the 6x6 Doodlebug Design Cream & Sugar paper pad and then just tucked the little kids behind the panel.  This was a quick and easy card!  I added a few Doodlebug Design matte dots to finish the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have A Fintastic Day

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card using an adorable mermaid stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions.


This cute little mermaid is from the Mermaid Kisses and Oceans of Fun stamp and die combo.  I colored the mermaid with copics and then diecut her with the coordinating die.  I cute a frame from white cardstock and created a fun shaker card.  The glare from the acetate made this card a little hard to photograph and the colors look a little faded - it really looks better IRL :-)  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!

Hugs, Anita

You're Grrreat

Good morning, I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Today I'm sharing a card using an adorable stamp and die set from My Favorite Things.


This cute little pirate and parrot are from the Party Like A Pirate stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating die-namics.  I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and the Stitched Square Scallop Frames Die-namics to cut my Bristol paper.  I used distress ink to create the sand and I used the Stencil Cloud to stencil the clouds.  I used foam tape on the frame, pirate, and parrot to give my card some dimension.  I also used a black glaze pen on the pirate's and parrot's eyes.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!

Hugs, Anita

Butterfly Baby

Good morning.  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend so far!



I made this card ages ago but never got around to sharing it on my blog.  I don't think this sweet image is available any longer.  It's called Butterfly Baby and it was from the Saturated Canary shop.  I colored the image with distress inks and used some pretty papers from Graphic 45.  The butterflies were cut using a butterfly border die and I added a tiny pearl to the center of each butterfly.  I punched a tag using the Martha Stewart Scalloped Tag Punch, stamped the word Baby, and tied the tag onto the bow using some embroidery floss. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Let's Chill

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a card using an adorable stamp and die set from My Favorite Things.  


I used this cute little penguin and palm tree from the Penguins in Paradise stamp set.  I started my card by applying distress inks to a piece of watercolor paper I cut using the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle Stax Die-namic.  I colored the images with copics and diecut them with the coordinating die-namics.  I used a black glaze pen on the penguin's eyes.  It's (finally) starting to get hot where I live so I thought this little penguin with the popsicle would be perfect for a card today!

Thank you for stopping by.
