Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 237

Morning Peeps.  It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  The theme this time is to make a Shaker Card.  This is only the second time I have tried this and I must say it worked much better than the first time.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.  They have some of the cutest stamps, both digi and clear.  Why not check them out.

For my card, I used "Donut Cocoa".  I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to cut him out and then colored him with Copics.  (The frosting color is more vivid in real life than it is in the photo.)  I punched the doodads in the shaker box with a single 1/4" punch.  The butterfly was cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  The dp is from a 6x6 paper pad from Echo Park called "Country Drive."  The sentiment is also from SNS and was punched with a Stampin' Up punch.  The bling on the butterfly is from Want2Scrap.

God is My Pilot

The sentiment on my card today is very appropriate.  I'm leaving the next few months up to Him completely and see where I land.  I am leaving the DS4J design team and all but two of the other teams I design for.  One of them will go at the end of April and the other at the end of June when my time is up on the DTs.   I am going to concentrate on my health and make cards only when I feel up to it.  This past seven months have taken a toll on my health and I need to get myself back in shape.  Oh, I'm not leaving card making totally.  I will still put in a card or two into the daily challenges on Feline Playful when I can.

So, with that in mind, here is my card for the Sunday Release over at DigiStamps4Joy.  I used Pilot Ted and the God is My Pilot sentiment.  You can find both of them in the DS4J store here.

I used my Cameo to print and cut the image and the shadow.  I colored Ted using Copics and a gold wink of Stella pen.  The bling is from Want2Scrap and is colored with the same Copic marker as the dark color in his jacket.  The paper is from a 6x6 pad from Carta Bella "Traditions."

Happy Easter

Here is my card for the From the Heart progressive challenge for March.  I love the triple images side-by-side.  I used a piece of cardstock from Echo Park for the background.  I colored the images with Copic markers.  The die cuts are done with Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.

The Crafter's Cafe 3/18

Morning Peeps!  It's time for a new challenge at The Crafter's CafĂ©.  I'm sorry to say that this is my last posting for TCC.  I have to let some things go as I am just not able to keep up with everything I would like to do.  The sponsors for this challenge are Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet and Dis Digi Designs.  I chose to use this image from Stitchy Bears.  It's called "Garden Me."  The theme for this challenge is "What Season Are You In?"  Since Spring starts in a couple days, I decided to go with Spring. 

Materials used:
Side Step Card file from Silhouette
DP from KaiserCraft Violet Crush 6 1/2" Paper Pad
Unknown maker for flowers and Spring tag
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Copic Markers
