Friends for Life! and QKR Stampede

Woohoo!  It's Friday!  I do like my Fridays!  It means it's time for another challenge at QKR Stampede.  The challenges have an optional theme, or you can enter 'anything goes'.  This week's optional theme is "Up, Up & Away".   

QKR Stampede has the most adorable animal stamps.  See what I mean?

Aw, so sweet!  

I used 2 QKR Stampede digis on this card -- Q-digi6805 Bunny & Butterfly, colored with watercolor pencils, then fussy cut, and Q-digi1704 Friends Bring Memories.

I hope you enter our 'Up, up and Away' challenge this week at QKR Stampede.  Remember, it can be 'Anything Goes'. 

Sunflower Mini Gram -- for Pickled Potpourri

Hello, everyone!  I hope you are finding time to enjoy the summer. We've had a cool, rainy summer, but the flowers are beautiful!  Just like the flowers on this Sunflower Mini Gram from Pickled Potpourri Designs.

I printed the Sunflower Mini Gram on yellow paper, then used color pencils to color the designs on it. 

Here, I'm just getting started:

I love sunflowers, so this was very fun for me to color up!
All I need to do is write message on the other side, fold it in 3rds, seal the Sunflower Mini Gram, and it's done!
Pickled Potpourri has so many fun designs in their store, at very reasonable prices.  Please check it out for yourself!  Do you prefer rubber stamps?  Check out Red Rubber Designs instead.

Big Faith! for The Cutting Cafe

Hello, fellow crafters.  I'm posting today for The Cutting Cafe.  The design team this time, is featuring Silhouettes.  You'll find a variety of silhouettes used in many different ways.  The Silhouette Digital Stamp set & Cutting File is found here.

There are many fun images in the file, but I decided to use a silhouette as a background to create this:

The sentiment is from a custom set I purchased at The Cutting Cafe Shop.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto the black silhouette

The cancer-themed background paper on this card is from Imagine That! Digistamp. The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM and the button is from my stash.

Please visit the Cutting Cafe blog on or after July 21 to see the rest of the Silhouette creations from the design team.  Leave a comment and you could win 3 sets of your choice.  Always visit the Cutting Cafe - Be Inspired Facebook Group for more fun, news, and inspiration.

Sunflower Sneak Peek

Hello, and happy Tuesday!  I'm on the Pickled Potpourri blog today with a Sunflower Mini Gram.  I'd love it if you'd check it out and leave a comment.

Here's a sneak peek of it all:

For My Friend -- and Crafty Sentiments Designs

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog. This week, you have a choice in themes.  Either go CAS or Fussy & Fancy with your project.

I used the Crafty  Sentiments Designs rubber stamp, 'This Rose' to create this for the challenge, going for the Fussy & Fancy theme:

I colored the rubber stamp, This Rose, with Copic markers, then used a Die-namics stitched die to cut it out.  The background paper is from Paper Wishes.  The card base was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, using an SVG file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I layered up a couple of different laces from my stash to match the paper.

I hope you can join us this week at Crafty Sentiments Challenge for our CAS or Fussy & Fancy Challenge.

Wishing You a Beautiful Birthday -- for Imagine That! Digistamp

It's time for a bit of mid-month inspiration over at the Imagine That! Digistamp Creative Playground.  As always, if you use an Imagine That! Digistamp image on your project, you get a great digistamp for free.  This month's is awesome!

I made a birthday card for a friend of mine for this month's challenge.  Here it is:

I used a pre-colored image from the Fuchsia & Hummingbird digital stamp set. The sentiment is also part of the Fuchsia & Hummingbird set.  Papers for this card, also from Imagine That! Digistamp, are part of the Sweet Pastels Paper Pack.
