Good morning peeps!  It's time for Challenge 99 at DigiStamps4Joy.  That means that the next one is the big 100.  Stay turned for some fun and goodies for 100.  Back to 99.  Asmah is hosting this challenge with the theme "Circles."    Just add any circular shape to your project.  For my project, I decided to add a circular image from DS4J.  It's called "Blessings 4" and can be found in the online store

I used Sketch 179 from My Favorite Things as my inspiration.

Materials used:

Word Art Wednesday 1Samuel2:2

The Scripture verse from Word Art Wednesday for this week is 1Samuel2:2.  For this challenge, I have used OWH Sketch 233.

It was a little hard to photograph because the paper is metallic.  The black layers are Recollections and the bling is from Want2Scrap.


It's Fall

Where is this year going?  It is time to make fall cards already. 

I used scraps from my scrap folder.  I used some Bo Bunny stickers and metallic leaves from Michaels.  The orange was way too bright for the patterned paper so I sponged it with Vintage Photo distress ink to tone it down.  I used MFT Sketch 190.

Back to School

In rummaging through my stamp drawer, I found a set of back to school stamps.  Unfortunately, it was not in its original package, so I have no idea who the maker is.

I used Bazzill Basics Paper School Days 6x6 pad. Recollections cardstock, Copic markers, and ribbon from my stash.

Challenges entered. Anything Goes School Days Back to School

Welcome Baby

I surfed through Paper Playful this morning.  I found a CAS card with the theme "baby" on CAS On Sunday.  Whenever I get asked for what style my cards are, I am at a loss to explain.  I don't do CAS usually but they are not really ornate either.  I suppose there is a word for the style, but I just say "I am a little beyond CAS."  I usually do whatever I feel moved to do.   Sometimes it's ornate, sometimes very simple.  Well, with that said, this is the card I did for the CAS Baby theme.

I used Recollections pink cardstock for the base and a piece of white from my scraps for the white layer.  I embossed the white with an Anna Griffin folder.  The carriage is a DS4J digi stamp that I colored with Copics.  You can find the image in the DS4J store here.  The sentiment is computer generated.   I used an SU punch to cut the corners on the sentiment panel. I also used Copics to color the bling.

DS4J 98 - New

Ursula chose the theme "NEW" for this challenge at DigiStamps4Joy.  Why not hop on over to DS4J's challenge here and see some fantastic inspiration.  I used "Forest" as my background and merged "New House" into the grassy area.  You can find these digis and tons more in the online shop.  I colored it with Copics.  The card base is a 5x5 already embossed base by Fundamentals.  I chose this size because the theme is not one for OWH.    I sponged Mustard Seed Distress Ink over the raised areas.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Flowers are from Michael's dollar bin. Bling is from my stash.  Surprise, surprise, it was not clear to be colored by Copics.  It is actualy green.  I cut the banner with my new Sizzix Triplits dies.

Word Art Wednesday Psalm 147:4

I have not entered Word Art Wednesday challenges for some time.  It is time to get back to them.  I made this card for their current challenge Anything Goes, using Psalm 147:4.  I used a combination of stars.  The large star with the sentiment is from Silhouette.   I used the print and cut feature to cut it out and then sponged the edges with Distress Ink.  The two smaller silver stars are also from Silhouette.  After I cut them, I covered them with Watermark ink and used Stampendous Silver embossing powder on them and heat set them.  The bling stars are from the dollar bin at Michaels from a couple years ago.  The card base is Express It cardstock.  The grey cardstock is Bazzill and the black is Recollections.
