All Aboard...Choo Choo

 
 
Hello everyone, I had to get out of my comfort zone today since I rarely make masculine cards. It was not easy to find papers and colors for this little guy but I hope I managed to do it justice.
 
I chose to play with Levi Goes Choo Choo from "The Stamping Chef" and used this week's "From The Heart Stamps" sketch.  

 
 
I colored him with prismas and papers are from Imaginisce A Baby Boy's Collection. I matted the image using my rectangle nestabilities, used some washi tape and the sentiment is from PTI. The button is from my stash and I added some twine to finish the card.
 
Challenges:
 
From The Heart Stamps - Sketch (Apr 28)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything goes (Apr 30)
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything goes (May 10)
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Anything but a Birthday (May 2)

Beautiful Bling Blog Hop



Welcome to the Beautiful Bling Blog hop.  April's birthstone is a diamond, so we added some bling to our projects.

 

If you're coming from Liz, then you're on the right track.

Here's my project.

 
 
I went with Princess Peyton and made a birthday card. Colored her with prismacolored pencils and matted it with Martha Stewart Valentine paper pad. I also added some bling on her dress, made some flowers with my punch and added a red brad in the centre. The sentiment is from PTI. I cuttlebugged my card and rounded the corners to finish the card.

I also used the sketch from Stamp with Fun.




Your next stop is: Sandy

Enjoy Life... It's Delicious

 
 


For this month, over at Doodle Pantry, we had to use a Doodle Pantry image for their monthly challenge. So, I chose two images which are Finny Fish and Cat Tail Pond for which I colored with my prismacolored pencils.

I wanted the fish to jump high from the pond and so I added some movements. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. To finish my card, I rounded the corners.

Paper-crafting Journey - Use a sentiment

Wishing You Sunshine


Hello everybody, today has been a beautiful Sunday. Love the sun and even though, the temperature was on the cooler side, it was acceptable to me. Better have sunshine than rain to end this week!!!


My card today just happens to talk about sunshine. I have colored Flower Pot Chick, the April Free stamp of the month from Delightful Inspirations {From The Heart} with my prismacolored pencils. Papers are from My Minds Eye and I embossed the blue strip behind the image. I chose not to mat the image and decided to just color the border.



 
 
I used Sketch #13 from Delightful Inspiration and used my corner rounder to finish the card.

Challenges:

Delightful Inspiration {From The Heart} - April Challenge
I {Heart} Sketches #13 - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - April Showers &/or Spring Flowers

You're the apple of my eye

 

Hello everyone, for this weeks challenge at The Stamping Chef (TSC), the theme is Girly Challenge and I chose to play with one of the playful Pin-ups called Forbidden-Fruit.
 
 
I colored her with my trusty Prismas and I'm still trying to get the shading. Papers are from We R Memory Keepers. To get the yellow border, I used the negative of the punched flower that you can see on the inside of the card.

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Please leave some love for my fellow team members here and find more inspiration.
