The O Look by Digistamps4Joy

We have a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!

Our sponsor for October is Digistamps4Joy. Our October winner will get to choose four images from the Digistamps4Joy store






Here is this week's sketch.




And here is my card using The O Look by Digistamps4Joy.



I dusted off my Cricut for this one. I found an overlay to use that varied some from the sketch photo, but since the sketch is for "inspiration", I decided it was okay to use the pattern rather than the stripes.  The image is colored with Copic markers and the flowers are some I just bought from Petaloo.




Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!


Thanks for dropping in! I love having visitors!

Festive Friday's Challenge at the Outlawz

Happy Friday the 13th! It doesn't mean a whole lot to me other than giving me an Aha! moment!

We have a new challenge at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 



The themes this week are Let's Go Riding, Card with Pumpkins, Fall Flowers, and Christmas. I chose the Pumpkins theme and my image is HWEEN BRAT PUMPKIN by Bugaboo Stamps.



I colored the image with Copic markers. I used some white and gold twine behind my image and the pumpkin border is a part of some designer paper I had on hand. The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I hope you will visit the Festive Friday's Challenge at the Outlawz and see what my awesome teammates have come up with!

And here is my card using a PRE-COLORED version of Ula (artist Jen L)  by our sponsor Digistamps4Joy.  



I thought it would be fun to use a pre-colored image for a change and I fell in love with Ula at the Digistamps4Joy store.  My papers, trim and sequins are all from my stash.

Football Friday


We have a new challenge at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 



The themes this week are Football, Fall Flowers, Let's Go Hiking, and Christmas. I chose the Football theme and my image is Football Boy by Bugaboo Stamps.



I colored the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is a rubber stamp by Darcie's Country Folk. For my background layer, I used a diagonal stripe stamp by Stampin' Up! and then turned the paper the other way and drew parallel lines with a red Tombow marker. The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I hope you will visit the Festive Friday's Challenge at the Outlawz and see what my awesome teammates have come up with!

Festive Friday's Challenge 9-29-17

We have a new challenge at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 




The themes this week are Card with Stitching (Faux or Real), Our Military, Tea Party, and Christmas.  

For my theme, I picked Card with Stitching. My image is by Bugaboo and is BUG FALL FENCE.


I colored the image with Copic markers. The image was cut out with a stitched rectangle die. On the background layer, I used a black pen to go around the perimeter with faux stitches. I made my background layer by gluing various leftover strips together. It was fun to use up some of my many scraps!
The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.


I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

Bugaboo is always our sponsor for the Festive Friday's Challenge and is giving a great prize of 5 digital images to our lucky September winner! Please visit Bugaboo as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!

Outlawz Sketch Challenge 9-27-17

 There is a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!



Sami Stamps is sponsoring our Challenge this month. The prize will be $12 gift cert from Sami's store.





Here is this week's sketch. Sandra is letting us pick our favorites from 2016 and it was Cindy's turn to pick her fav. Here is Cindy's favorite sketch from last year!




I made two cards for this week's challenge.  Here is the first one. The image is Warm Love by Sami Stamps. I colored with Copic markers and used items from my stash to make the card. 


And here is the second one. For this one, I used Little Flower Fairy by Sami Stamps. I colored with Copic markers and used Gold Wink of Stella on her wings. If I could do it over, I would have used Clear Wink of Stella......I think it would have looked nicer. It does look better IRL than it does here because the camera didn't pick up the shine. The ribbon and papers are from my stash and I used Petite Butterfly from Stampin' Up! to punch my butterflies and used Daffodil Delight ink to sponge around the edges.




Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!

Tuesday Color Challenge at the Outlawz

There is a new Outlawz Colour Challenge starting today.  The Outlawz Color Design Team has made some beautiful cards with our sponsor images.

The sponsor this month is Sheepski Designs.



At the Color Challenge this week, we are doing a monochromatic theme with a twist of a pop of one other color!

Jeanie chose the inspiration and at first I was stumped, but decided to use the SheepSkiDesigns image, Jean's Cherry Blossom and I loved how it turned out.



Here is my card using an image by our sponsor Sheepski Designs, Jean's Cherry Blossom.   https://www.etsy.com/listing/538695099/jeans-cherry-blossom-image-no-102?ref=shop_home_active_16 




I colored with Copic markers. I used pink as my "pop" color and used various shades of the T Copic family for the leaves and branches. 

I hope you will stop by the Outlawz Colour Challenge and think about joining us!

And thanks so much for dropping by my blog! I always appreciate it!
