Box and ATC challenge for D.I.V.A.S. SS

Good morning, hope all is well with you. I'm posting 2 different things in 1 this morning, because of course I'm behind. The first picture is of the box that I made for the challenge about 2 weeks ago. It's called a no adhesive box and you can find the tutorial Here. It's really easy and I think very cute. I used a stamp for the top that I actually bought for my mom, but used really quick-hehe. I embossed it in silver and sponged the edges in black, and then added glitter glue around it. I added a eyelet and ribbon and Voila'. The next picture is of our latest challenge to do an ATC. I posted this challenge because I've always wanted to do one. Then when I started doing it, I realized I've pretty much done one when I made some tags. Oh well, it was fun. The image is from Pink Petticoat, and it's a freebie. I used all scraps on this, I was so happy. I decided yesterday to go through my scraps, and OMG, there is way too many. I colored with copics and bic's. Hope you like them, and thanks for looking.

A Birthday Card and an Announcement!

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Our second SS challenge was to make a birthday card for our SS. So, here is mine. I used an image that I got from my mom, so I'm not sure what it is exactly. I colored the image with copics and shimmerz. I cut it out with my nesties. I used a sketch from Our Creative Corner. I distressed the edges of the pink dp. I added some yellow dew drops, and some cute ribbon with a bow, and Voila. I hope she likes it, thanks for looking.
Oh, my announcement-I almost forgot. I was chosen to be on the squigglefly design team. This is my first design team and I'm so excited.

Altered Notebook

Good evening, hope all is well with you. WOW! This is my second post today. Can you believe it? I made this notebook for a swap that I'm in. The image is a digital image from BeccaKay. She has darling images, you really should check it out. The red paper is from Michael's value pack. The black stripe is DCWV, the black polka dot is Making Memories, and the red heart paper is We R Memory Keepers. I cut out the image with my nesties, and also used a scallop oval behind it. I scalloped the side pieces with a corner rounder. I added 3 white buttons tied with embroidery thread. And to finish it off, I tied it with big polka dot ribbon. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.


Good morning, hope all is well with you. This is a card I made for the Card Pattern Sketch Blog. The sketch is from week 13. I went with much lighter colors on this than I usually do. The image is called 50's Sweethearts from The Greeting Farm. If you haven't seen these images, you really should check them out, they are adorable. I used Copic markers to color the image, added some ribbon and some glitter flower brads from Making Memories. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Card Pattern Sketch #14

Good evening, hope all is well with you. Tonight I have a card made with the Card Pattern Sketch. I just learned about this blog from Sue at Sue's Sentiments. They do a different sketch every week, if you haven't checked it out, you really should. So, I saw this sketch, and knew that for me it would be a little challenging. I'm not used to using small stamps or spaces. I was also inspired by the colors that I used from another blogging friend, but for the life of me, I can't remember who it was or where. I'm so sorry!!! But, when I saw her card, I fell in love with it. It was all browns with a touch of red. I used a little more red, but really like the results. The stamps are from Hanna Stamps. It's called Cafe' Hanna. I used DCWV cs in brown bling, the dp was in my stash, so I don't know who it's by. I used my scallop nesties for the squares, and a 1" punch for the small square. I used the same tan cs from the squares to cut the bottom strip and scalloped it with a corner rounder. The buttons are from the bag o buttons from Joann's. I used hemp twine to tie the centers. I inked the edges of the squares and scallop piece with cranberry color box ink. The images are stamped in Timber Brown Staz-On. I also distressed the edges with my scissors. Hope you like it, and thanks for looking.

Designing D.I.V.A.S SS challenge 1

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you. I've finally finished my secret sister challenge. I had it all in my head yesterday, but wasn't feeling good, and it kinda got put on the back burner. So now it's done. Our challenge was to use flowers as many flowers as we could. I thought it was going to be hard, but it was actually pretty easy. I used my new DCWV paper stack. It is Fun in the Sun Glitter Stack. I actually love all of the paper in here, it's gorgeous!!! The CS is also DCWV bling line. The stamp is a new set I got at Joann's the other day. It's called Wild Daisy Rd. by Heidi Grace. I embossed it with copper embossing powder. I just won a set of Creamy Mettalic Chalks by Pebbles Inc. I used one of those to go around the white on the flower. The got sent to me really quick, and I totally love them. They are great, they don't "fly" away like regular chalks. They are beautiful! The flowers are from different sets I've been buying. The center of the flowers is a flower jewel from Heidi Grace. I used my nesties to cut out the main panel. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Doodle Palace Design Card

Good evening, hope all is well with you. This card is made with a digital image from the Doodlepalace. Isn't this puppy the cutest? As soon as I saw this image I thought of a little boys birthday. I don't have very many "boy" images, so I was so glad when I found this. The card stock is DCWV bling, the CS is also DCWV from the "Nana's Kids" stack. I colored the image with copics. I also added some stickles to the bubbles. The buttons are from Joann's value packs, and tied with embroidery thread. I slightly used a sketch from Mojo. I just left out a part. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Mojo Monday Card

Good Saturday morning, hope all is well with you. I've finished card that I was dreaming about. I actually finished a couple of days ago, but have not had a chance to post until now. I used a sketch from the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. This is the first time I've used one of their sketches and it was so much fun. The image is from Whiff Of Joy. I got it in a swap on SCS. So I'm sorry I don't know the name of it. I cut her out using my nesties that I got from 7kidscollegefund. If you haven't checked out her store, you really should. She has just about everything, and great prices too. I used Tangelo DCWV cardstock. The DP is My Mind's Eye. It is double sided and I used both sides. The trim I found in a thrift store in Lake Tahoe when I went to visit my mom. I used Frosted Lace Sticles around the corners. And the buttons are from those bags you can get at walmart or Joann's. I also used my small scallop nestie on the circle. I colored the image with my prisma pencils and used the colorless blender with them. Her bracelet and the 3 dots on the side of the card are Liquid pearls. This is my first time using those, and I love them. I used Orange Peel and Crystal sticles to accent in different places. Sorry the picture isn't the best. I usually take my pictures outside, but the weather here is horrible right now, so this will have to do. Hope you like it, thanks for looking. Have a wonderful day.
