A Gift

Happy Day to you all! All That Scraps starts a new challenge today, and it's...

This is Mariko from Sister Stamps, colored up in Copic markers and cut out with a Spellbinders Circle die. She's perfect for any celebration, and since I've been doing so many Christmas theme projects, it was nice to do a birthday card! Papers are Basic Grey Konichiwa, and stamped a Amy R Birthday sentiment. Added a few Recollections flowers and gems.

Hop on over to the ATS Challenge blog to see more from the team! Just follow the simple rules for your chance at an awesome prize!

To Ewe...

Hi Everyone! It's Wednesday and time for a reminder to join us as All That Scraps Challenge! The current challenge is CAS - clean and simple... and here's my take on it...
This is Ornament Ewe and a matching sentiment from last year's release. Used a Spellbinder's Reverse Wonky Rectangles, and cut a couple of banners from the xmas scrap pile. To add some metallic sparkle, used the Clear Star pen around the edges of the ornament and the frame of the wonky rectangle. Found a metallic silver button and some silver elastic tie for the bow.

Here's a pic of the inside...
yup... another gift card holder! stamped with a sentiment from Amy R's Winter set.

Time to Laugh

Welcome back! This is my second post today, if you're looking for Lollipop Crafts sponsor spotlight, please scroll down, or click here.

It's a new challenge today at All That Scraps and this time we want to see C.A.S. - clean and simple! I made a gift card/money envelope using C.C. Designs Gnome.
Colored him up with Copics, then fussy cut him out and added a embroidery floss for the fishing line. Also added a double layer of grass borders from CC Cutters. One piece of paper from the Me&My Big Ideas Autumn layers paper pad, and stamped sentiment from Hero Arts.

Here's a look at the back side
sentiments are from Amy R Birthday Sentiments and Whimsy Stamps Birthday Letter Seals.

LC Sponsor Spotlight

Happy Wednesday! Today Lollipop Crafts is spotlighting our sponsor this week, Robyn's Fetish
This adorable bear is called Charlie Christmas Bear, and you can find him here. He's colored up in Copics, but I ran into some marker trouble this time... see the right side of his face? As I was putting on the darker brown (E55) for some shadows, it started to get weird on me. It became sort of oily, and couldn't blend with the other colors. It doesn't look as bad IRL, but this picture sure picked it up! I thought my marker was drying out, but I checked it was good, but added a little more ink anyways.  Has anyone else have that happen? and is there a remedy for this? Would love to hear any advice on this! :D

So back to the card... it's a small sized card... only 3.5x3.5. Great way to use up some more scraps and makes a perfect little gift card. Used Spellbinders circle and scallop circles for the dies, and handcut a small banner flag for the sentiment, which is Amy R Winter Sentiments.

Head on over to the Lollipop Crafts blog to see what a few other team mates have made to share. Find out more on our wonderful sponsor, and check out the awesome prize for the current challenge!

Have a great day! ;D

Lollipop Crafts Ch#95 Happy Holidays

Hi all! I'm a bit late posting this up, but today Lollipop Crafts has a new bi-weekly challenge, and the theme this time is Happy Holidays! Just show us Christmas or other winter holiday cards, scrapbook pages or crafty gifts. Come back on Wednesday to see who is our sponsor and what the awesome prize is!

Today I've made some gift tags using Whimsie Doodle images...

Colored them up with Copics markers and added just a touch of shimmer with Clear Star gel pen. The tag die is from Sizzix, some scraps from Recollections xmas paper pad, snowflakes from MS punch and a mini punch, ribbons and buttons to finish it off. The back is stamped with a sentiment and left enough room to add a name.
sentiments are from Amy R Winter Sentiments and Studio G

Be sure to stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog to see what the team members have made. Hope you can join us!

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a wonderful day! ;D
