New Sandra Caldwell Release -- 1475 Puppy Sees a Bone

It's Friday, so Sandra Caldwell has several new releases today.  I have been guest designing all month for the  Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group. This is my last week. Sigh!! 

I sure do love all of her designs. Be sure to stop by the FB group and see the cards by the wonderful Design Team.


This week I chose 1475 Puppy Sees a Bone. I had to have it. It reminded me of my goofy boxer and I really enjoy making Puppy cards.



I used Copic markers to color this sweet puppy. My digital papers are from Jenny L Designs.
 My sentiment is a clear stamp from a Dog set by Image Tree. I cut out the sentiment using the Stitched Framelits by Stampin' Up! The paw print sticker is from my stash and I apologize for not knowing the company name.

Here are some challenges I am going to enter this week.

Colour Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes

Christmas at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge

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 Splash in a Puddle, Umbrella Day, Old Phones, and Anything Christmas.  For my card, I chose the Anything Christmas theme.  Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that I just love! I colored with Copic markers. The image is from a set called Mini Set-Christmas Tags. I have used these images many times. Great for Christmas Cards, not just tags.



My card is pretty simple. I trimmed some red and green glitter paper to go with my background layer. 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 4 digital images to our lucky April winner! Please visit Bugaboo as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!

Here is my Guest DT card using 1506 Rainy Day Hippo.



I colored my cute hippo with Copic markers. I sponged the clouds using a scalloped circle die cut and my ink was Memento London Fog. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set called Sassy Salutations. 
The three coordinating papers in the background are also from Stampin' Up! but soon to be retired. I placed some nail art stickers on the yellow parts of the umbrella for some sparkle. We all need a little sparkle in our lives, especially on rainy days!!

1501 Made a Cake For U New Sandra Caldwell release

Another adorable release from Sandra Caldwell.  It is called 1501 Made a Cake For U. There are several other new releases today, too, so be sure to pop by her store and check them out.



Isn't this a cute digi? I colored her with Copic markers and then found this great Kaleidoscope paper from Close to My Heart that coordinated so well with the colors I used for coloring. The paper pack is retired now. (Sigh.....................!) My sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set. My finished card size is 5 x 7 inches.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

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 Easter Holiday, Rabbits, Easter Eggs, and Christmas Lights. For my card, I chose the Easter Holiday, Rabbits, and Easter Eggs.  Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that is so cute! I colored with Copic markers.



I cut my image with my paper trimmer and mounted on some pink glitter paper and then mounted that piece onto some patterned Easter paper I got on clearance. It is always fun to look for papers on the clearance rack because they tend to mark down the holiday papers I have found.  Then I mounted that layer onto another layer of pink glitter paper. I think the glitter paper makes it really look festive!  No embellishments on this card. I did take my white Faber Castell Pitt pen and made some little white dots around the bunnies just for some added interest. Not that the image needed it! It is super cute just the way it is. And I put a few bits of clear Wink of Stella on some of the flower centers.

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

Spring Birds

There is a new challenge starting 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! 


I chose the Spring Birds theme for my card. Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that is a silhouette type of image. I really like silhouette images.



I used my Copic markers to create a green/yellow green background for my image called Silhouette Hummingbird Flowers by Bugaboo.  I cut out the circle with my Spellbinders Circles Nestabilities and then found this beautiful printed green paper in my stash of odds and ends. I cut out a banner with my Stampin' Up! Triple Banner Punch and then stamped the sentiment on the banner. I finished off with Stickles on the flowers and a couple of rhinestones for some more bling!

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