DT Challenge Time!

It’s another fun week at 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog! We are being sponsored by The Digi Garden, and were given 2 images to work with. We are also following a sketch. I decided to turn to gift bags this week, and still followed the sketch on both. I colored my images with my pencils, die cut them out with Spellbinders dies, used scraps of papers, some fun rhinestones, and my ippity stamps for the sentiments. Come join the fun! Last week we had over 100 entries!! You go Ladies!!


Happy Friday!

Just a quick post today to share my Unity Friends With Flair card! I used my new Ippity set! Isn’t it cute! You can change up the sentiment for any occasion! And I got it on the Unity site while it was 39% off!! When can you get a sale on ippity?! Now you can order from Unity’s site! Yipee! But I will still order from my Ippity chick as well, can’t forget about that! The background paper here is from Lily Bee, and the flowers came with my SCS trade!! And the twine came from my Ippity Chick, Noelle! Yes, you get 25 yards of free twine with every order! Thanks Girlie!! Have a Happy weekend!!!

Two First’s!

This card has two first time’s for me! My very first Tilda stamp! I’ve been admiring these images for about a year now, and I finally got my hands on some! I traded some doubles of stamps I had for 2 magnolia stamps on Splitcoast stampers. I couldn’t wait to get them, and start coloring! The second is, I joined a new challenge blog called Fantabulous Cricut. Every week they have a Challenge Me Monday, and this week’s theme is to use a label(not a circle) on your project. I chose to use the Cricut Craftroom free Basic Shapes for the label I used. I measured my stamp, and stretched the label to make the image fit. I do really love the new Cricut Craftroom! It gets me to use my Cricut more, since I can make any image exactly the size I want! Anyway, I colored sweet Tilda in with my pencils and blender pen. I really need to get a flesh tone marker, as of now, I use my blender pen and a blush blossom ink pad from Stampin Up! I can’t quite get the shading right on the skintone. So that’s next on my wishlist! I used paper from the Lily Bee Designs Picket fence pad, and the sentiment is from Unity. Thank you for looking in, and I’ll be posting more Fantabulous Cricut projects in the week’s to come!

DT Time!!

Time to post my card for my Design Team! This week at 2 Sister’s challenge blog, the theme is to use embossing. We are being sponsored by 2 fabulous companies, Meljen’s Design’s, and Crafty Sentiments. My image came from Crafty Sentiments called Rose & Roxy, and I colored her with my pencils and blender pen. She is cut out on a Spellbinders die, then embossed. The background paper is from Authentique’s Gathering collection. The ribbon rose I made by first dyeing white ribbon with broken china DI. I then adhered it to a punched circle by loosly gathering it around, and ending in the middle. I have tried these before and never seemed to get it right, but this one came out just fine! The sentiment is from the ippity set How You Doin? and is punched out with a small oval Stampin Up! punch. Some twine tied on the button, and the bottom of the card completes it! Please check out the other DT’s work, and be sure to enter your project for a chance to win some digi images!

It’s Friday!!

Not that Friday’s have any real meaning to me, other than the Friends With Flair day over at the Unity blog!! This card is also being entered in 2 other challenges. Chick Challenges{with ippity}, where there is a sketch to follow. And the Unity Opportunity blog where we are to use Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. So here’s the breakdown: My card follows the sketch almost to a T. I used my Spellbinders die on the Picot circle with my Creative Memories Bountiful paper(something old,2008), the ippity stamp set A Moment In Time(my newest ippity set), which I stamped the label in Broken China DI embossed in clear then cut out, and the sentiment stamped in white embossed in white then punched out. Background paper and dew drops(my something blue), and my something borrowed is the mini clothespin from my craft supplies. I think that about covers it! I think this card came out very pretty, and it doesn’t really have a theme other than love! So it could go to just about anyone! Also, a few posts back I had mentioned that I have an abundance, wait ABUNDANCE 🙂 of cards made that are need of homes. I am going to donate them to Operation Write Home. If you’d like to donate, click on their link. Just be sure to read the guidelines on what type of cards to send, and what not to use on the cards. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend!!

It’s All Heart

This card is all heart! I was inspired by 2 challenges to make this one, first is the Get Hippity with Ippity challenge to use hearts. And the second is at The Stamping Boutique to use die-cuts. My card features a Sizzix Movers and Shapers Heart die that I cut four times with pp. Three of them are stitched down the center for something different, and the fourth has a Stamping Boutique digi of Little Audrey Sitting, atop the other. I fussy cut her out after coloring with my pencils, and think she looks so cute sitting on that heart! I left her feet and head free of adhesive to make her look more ‘natural’! The sentiment is from the {ippity} set How You Doin? Feel free to join in on both challenges! The rules are simple!

Blogger Fix

I have found a solution to the problems blogger is having. People are getting just a white screen when visiting blogs, not able to comment, and not able to view the whole blog page. Here is a fix for that problem. On your dashboard go to settings, scroll down to comments, and click on the option that says pop-up window, then save. This will only work on your blog. So if you aren’t getting comments like you usually do, check your settings. I have done this to my blog. Also I have downloaded Google Chrome awhile back. This web browser works great with blogger. Never any issues. But I use Internet Explorer most of the time when I’m surfing the web, but it does have alot of conflicts with blogger for some reason. So that’s 2 options you can try, and please pass this info along to your followers and friends! None of us want to miss out on your blogs!!
