Memory Box Pinpoint Single Frame


Hi everyone!

The challenge from Joanne at The Paper Players this week is to get coloring!

 

I don't do much coloring, although I do enjoy it. Those dies just keep calling my name I guess, but from time to time I do put them away and get out my markers and inks. I colored this image with some Copics. 

I decided to frame it with lots of white, keeping it clean and simple. The frame is from Memory Box called "Pinpoint Single Frame." I stamped the sentiment from Poppystamps "Grateful Heart" in black underneath.

Dies R Us Challenge


Hi everyone!

Time for the Dies R Us "anything goes with dies" challenge!

Today's card I had SO much fun making. First I created some alcohol ink backgrounds, which is always a good time....then I cut out some Cheery Lynn seahorses.

I LOVE the detail on their dies:


I also cut out some foliage, a sand dollar and a star fish from Cheery Lynn, and adhered them all on a Memory Box Tulisa Collage.


Some tiny fish from Penny Black and a sentiment completed the card.


Here's a list of the dies I used:

Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies


Hi everyone!

It's time for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies challenge.



As usual, our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop!









I decided to make a masculine Birthday card and used the Memory Box Tool Border. I cut it out once in yellow and once in grey and did a bit of paper piecing. I adhered it to a piece of wood grain paper and tied on some bakers twine. The sentiment is stamped in black from Happy Little Stampers," Everyday Sentiments."

I made several of these cards to have in my stash...so quick and easy!

I hope you will join us!

The Paper Players Great Outdoors


Hi everyone!

Today's challenge at The Paper Players is, "The Great Outdoors." 


I found some perfect paper at our local craft store to make this 4 x 4 fishing card for my son. He loves the outdoors, especially fishing!


I used my Cheery Lynn stitched squares..... and a lure from Cheery Lynn's Fishing Set. I did a bit of coloring with my silver pen and added an enamel dot.

The sentiment is stamped in black from Our Daily Bread's, "Fishing."
