Mod Squad Challenge- A Few Of My Favorite Things

Can't believe I'm finally getting back to making cards after over a year away from it.  I got burnt after the holidays last year then got hit with the flu. After recuperating I I found out I was pregnant and it was twins!! What a surprise that was! Now my boys are here and I'm slowly finding some crafting time. Yay!

I'm jumping back into it with the 1st challenge over at Mod Squad Challenge Blog. The challenge is "A Few Of My Favorite Things" I used Distress Inks, distressed edges, die cut circle and layering of an image.


Although it's hard to tell there's 6 layers on my rose. Here's another image that hopefully shows the rose layers a little better!


Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. Happy crafting!!

Kids Favorite Food VSN Challenge

For this challenge you needed to make a card using foods kids love to eat.



What kid doesn't love cupcakes?! This little cutie is from Doodle Dragon Studios. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and blended them with baby oil. The background paper is from The Paper Studios All Seasons paper pack. I layered the image with black paper then used the drippy goo punch and edged it with purple stickles. I distressed the papers with sandpaper and added Stickles to the hair ties and bow on the skull.

That's the last card I made for the Back to School VSN!! Now I need to get started on the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.com. I'll be back really soon with lots more cards to share!!

Classroom Layout VSN Challenge

This challenge is to follow a classroom layout sketch.



A nice and simple card here. The background paper was found in my scrap pile. Then I just used 9 punched snowflakes. Stamped the Tis the season and added 2 more smaller punched snowflakes.

One more card left to share then I'm all caught up!

Sandbox Follies VSN Challenge

This challenge is to use sand in some way. I used sandpaper to ruff up my image and background paper.



My pumpkin is from Doodle Dragon Studios and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I found the background paper in my scrap pile. I used Momento Tuxedo Black for my edging color. The row of pumpkins is from a EK punch called Pumpkin Patch. I punched it in black and orange then off set them for a shadow effect.

I think I only have 2 more cards to share til I'm all caught up!!

The Color Red VSN Challenge

For this challenge use the color Red on your project.



My santa crab is from Doodle Dragon Studios and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used stickles on the hat and as a border around the die cut edge. I doodled around the image edge with a red marker. The paper is from The Paper Studio Spunky-Funky Christmas paper pack.

Thats it a nice and simple christmas card. Thanks for looking!

Apples VSN Challenge

My image is from Doodle Dragon Studios. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended them with baby oil. The gratitude stamp is from Inkadinkado Harvest Expressions set. I edged the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink, the leaves are Tea Dye Distress Ink and the gratitude is Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Don't Get Caught Daydreaming VSN Challenge

This challenge is to use the Glitter Window technique. I love this technique and can't wait to use it again!



I used this Glitter Window technique tutorial. To make the blue background I used Momento ink in Summer Sky and Danube Blue then stamped snowflakes in Summer Sky. For the glitter window snowflakes I used Paris Dusk Momento ink. To add a little more sparkle I used Stickles glitter glue around the Let It Snow.
