The Outlawz Sketch Challenge Oct. 29

Morning Peeps.  Welcome to The Outlawz Sketch Challenge.  I hope you all had a chance to party with the Outlawz last week.  Our sponsor this month is Polka Doodles.  For my card, I chose to use Merry Maison image. 
 
 


Materials used:
Recollections cardstock
Bo Bunny printed cardstock
Impression Obsession sentiment stamp
Want2scrap bling

I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to print and cut the image.  Then I colored it with Copic markers.  I also cut the printed background with the Cameo.

I've got a pretty good supply of Christmas cards made already for this year. 

I'm going to enter the following challenges with this card:

The Crafter's Cafe - Things With Wings

Hi Peeps!  Another Wednesday has rolled around and it's time for Team B's challenge at The Crafter's CafĂ©.  Our Sponsor for this week is QKR.  They have some of the most adorable images.  Hop on over after you leave me a comment and check them out.  I chose Music Angel for my image for this challenge
 
I had fun with this one and used a conglomeration of companies product to make it.  The base is Recollections white cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 11 and then folded in half to make a 5 1/2 inch square card.    The background is cut from a file on my Silhouette Cameo.  The music staff die cut is from The Frantic Stamper.  I used American Crafts silver foil for the staff.  The sentiment is the October Christmas Challenge image at DigiStamps4Joy 2015 Christmas Card Challenge.  I used Wink of Stella glitter pens on the majority of the image, along with a little Copic markers for the patches and skin.  Unfortunately, the glitter of the Wink of Stella pens doesn't show in the photo.  In just the right light, it really shimmers. I also used Krylon Gold Leaf Pen to outline the sentiment block.   I used the print and cut feature to cut both the angel and the sentiment block on my Cameo.

It's Party Time at The Outlawz



Come join in the fun at The Outlawz.  There will be games, a scavenger hunt, word search, word scramble and prizes, prizes, prizes.  Tell your friends about it.  Everyone is welcome to attend this party.  Each challenge group will be having their own challenges.  Seven groups, seven challenges in all plus their usual challenge for the day.  Come as you are, no need to get all dressed up.

We have an extra challenge for you this week.  In addition to the regularly scheduled Wednesday sketch challenge (which is in a different post):


there is a special party celebration sketch:
 
Here is the card I made using this sketch and the image provided by our sponsor for this challenge, DeeDee's Digis.  This wonderful set will be available today.  If you have never used DeeDee's digis, then you are missing out on a whole lot of fun.  Most of her collections have multiple digis - some colored, some for you to color.  A lot of the collections also have matching digi paper for you to print out.  There are also some freebie collections for you to try before you buy.




I used the "Fun & Festive" collection for my card.


There wasn't much for me to do in making this card.  I used the colored cake image, and the digi paper with the diamonds.  I cut the starbursts, image, small stars and banner with my Cameo and added a little bling from Want2Scrap.  The lettering is from a set of 7/16" letters from Making Memories, called Chunky Fiesta.  I have had that set of letters for almost 10 years.  I was surprised they still stuck.  The gold is from Starfoam (at least I think that is the  name of the company).  Again, it has been in my stash for a lot of years.  I have been hoarding it because it was more expensive than I usually pay for a single sheet and I really didn't have anything special to use it on.  This card is for a friend's birthday which we will celebrate tomorrow.

 

The Outlawz Sketch - October 22

Hi, Peeps!  These Wednesdays seem to roll around quickly.  It's once again time for the sketch challenge over at The Outlawz.  Hurry on over and get some neat inspiration.  Then join in the fun. This sketch was fun to use.  Our sponsor for this month is Polkadoodles.  Check out their site.  There are some really cute digs there.  I used Witch. 

The sketch:

 
My card:



The card base is Stampin Up cardstock.  The other cardstocks are Recollections.  I printed and cut the image with my Silhouette Cameo and colored it with Copics. I also cut the oval shapes with the Cameo. The dp is a digi from Doodle Pantry.  Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The flower is from Recollections.

Kitty Plays Catch

Hi Peeps!  It's time for  the mid-challenge over at DigiStamps4Joy.  Challenge 102 is being hosted by Jackie.  She chose the theme of Animals.  I decided to use a nice fall image for my card, "Kitty Plays Catch" (although, I think "kitty" looks more like a skunk).  It makes a nice Fall card.  You can find "Kitty Plays Catch" here along with a lot of other great digi images.  Why not take a little side trip after you leave me some love and look at all the DS4J images?



For the card base, I cut and folded a 5 1/2 x 11 inch piece of white cardstock to make a 5 1/2 inch square card.  I sponged the edges with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.  I added a piece of fall leaves paper from my stash for the next layer.  Then I cut a file from Silhouette in brown for the frame.  I printed the image on Neenah solar white cardstock and cut it with the same Silhouette file, only a little smaller.  I used Copic markers to color the image.  Then I sponged a little Broken China and Forest Moss for the sky and grassy area.  The embellishments are from Bo Bunny Fall Dimensional Stickers.

Who Wants A Hug

If it's Tuesday, it must be Tuesday Throwdown challenge time.  I am sooooo happy and excited to be back on the design team after ten months' absence for healing from my knee replacement. It's feels so good to be back in the saddle again. The theme for this challenge is Halloween Color.  That can be black and orange with a little yellow and white thrown in, which are the usual colors we think of for Halloween.   Our sponsor for this challenge, Doodle Pantry, had this adorable Owl, at least I think it's an owl, in non-traditional colors.  Enter new Halloween colors: purple and green.  I just love this little guy.  I chose to use a pre-colored image.  The design paper comes in the file with the owl, along with a few sentiments.    Go over to their site and check it out.  The spider and web are from Miss Kate Cutables.

Sunday Release DS4J Oct. 19

Happy Sunday peeps.  It's Team B's turn to post the Sunday Release at DS4J.  We had some interesting images to work with this week.  I chose to use the Vintage Geek Girl.   You can find the  new images here.

I had made this card base several months ago waiting for just the right image to show up.  I no longer have to push the base from side of my desk to the other.  I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the double layer background.  I used the print and cut feature to cut the image.  Copics were used to color the image.  The butterflies are cut with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  The bling us from Want2Scrap.
