All Dressed Up

Hi Again Stampers!

I am on a ROLL! I was blog hopping around and saw a super fun Blog Hop Challenge from All Dressed Up stamps and thought I would play along! I know I know...TWO cards in one day!! It is quite the miracle - LOL!

All Dressed Up had the cutest freebie image that you had to use to create a project for their challenge. It just so happens that I love their stamps...and I need to beef up my birthday card stash since I will have just this one as a spare :) Here it is:

Isn't that image adorable?!?!?! How do you like my Birthday Sentiment :D I have been 29 and holding for the last 10 years but who is counting! Once you hit 29 you just stay there - LOL!
I used some cute Basic Grey papers from my crafty stash. I thought that it was neat that the brown paper had a flower image that is really similar to the Petaloo ones I had just purchased that came in the mail TODAY! It was a sign I think that I needed to use them :)

Here is a close up of the image:

I added some stickles to give her some bling and some frantage to the panel too. I am sorry the pictures have a yellow tint to them I had to take the picture at night and our lighting is not ideal!

I used the Sketch N Stash card sketch for my layout...

Thanks for stopping by again today! Be sure to scroll down and check out my post from earlier today that is for our Loves Rubberstamps Warm Colors Challenge! I used the no lines coloring technique for the first time :)

Good Morning Stampers!

I finally had enough of my no crafting streak and took time yesterday to make a card! This is the first thing I have made since the beginning of April so go easy on me - LOL! I forgot how relaxing it is to just sit and color and craft. I sure have missed it!

My daughter's birthday is coming up on October 24th so I wanted to make her a birthday card. I decided to go all out and figured since I have not made anything for so long and haven't touched a copic marker since April...what the heck...I will try something I have never done and just go for it. So I colored my image in the NO LINES technique!! I don't think it turned out to horrible for my first time but I still need lots of practice :)

I used the super adorable image from the Whimsy Wee Stamps Collection called Love You Slow Much. I love this one and hadn't inked it up yet. That snail is tooooo CUTE!! The scrabble tile looking letters are from Whimsy Stamps also and are called Spell It Out. These will be listed in the store soon!

Here are some close ups of my image...

I really LOVE how my little snail turned out :) I am not too sure about my fairy, I think her hair could be better. I think I tried too hard to not get the "banding" in her hair so my flicks were fatter than I wanted. Like I said I still need to practice :)

I also finished the inside too...

I used two different Tiddly Inks stamp sets to create the inside - the verse sentiment and hearts are from the stamp set called My I Love You and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the stamp set called Ellie Says Happy Birthday. 

I used warm colors for my card this week since that is our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge to use Warm Colors on your card. So we hope you play along with us! We have some great sponsor prizes!

I also used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge for my layout...

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope now that I broke my no-crafting streak I will get back in the swing of making things on a regular basis again :)

Big Crafty Hugs!
