Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #2

Hi! I've been so busy these last few days. I can't believe I've gotten around 9 cards made, while still getting ready for my sister-in-law's wedding which is just a week and a half away! I had to stop in real quick to post my entry to the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. To play along, head over here: Inky Paws Challenge #2

I took Newton and added some whiskers and googly eyes! He looks pretty mischievious, I think! Love how this turned out!

 Take care....I probably won't be back to blogging for around two weeks :( This wedding's going to be epic, lol!)

Crafting Frenzy Day 3

I got three more cards done today....this morning, actually! First is a card using homemade mist! I like how this turned out.
Next is a card using the limited ingredients. Not totally happy with this, but I worked with it....
Last, I've got my favorite. This was from the Breakfast Bake & Take using a color palette and sketch.
Happy Monday, all!

Crafting Frenzy Day 2

Today I got a few more of the challenges from Stamp-A-Fair completed. Yay! First up is a scratch & sniff card. Turned out so cute, and it really smells like grapes!
Next I have a card that uses shrinky dinks! Ha! I was so excited to learn that i can use my heat gun instead of the oven to make these. I coated the snowflakes with prisma glitter too, but that doesn't show up in the picture.
Finally, I have a card that uses paper clay. I was really surprised at how like Fun Foam this turned out after it air dried. Not sure how much I'm loving this technique. I think maybe with flowers I'd like it better....
All in all, it was a pretty productive day! Maybe I'll even be able to get a couple more cards done in the morning!

Stamp-A-Fair 2013

Today starts Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Fair....a whole day of crafting tutorials and fun! I've been interrupted at every turn, so I haven't gotten as much done today as I would've liked. I was able to complete Nichole's sea salt technique....here are the results!
I also got my sister-in-law's wedding card done today using Betsey's gallon, quart, pint challenge. I am pretty happy with how this one turned out. I love the colors in this card...hope she does too!
I really hope to get some more done tomorrow, but I doubt it, lol! Wish me luck ;)

Inky Paws Challenge #1

So I was excited to see that there's a challenge over at Newton's Nook, a new stamp company with the cutest stamps! I had to have the Newton's Antics set as soon as I saw it...I'm such a sucker for anything with kitties! I created one card with the Newton's Antics set and one card using the free digi image. They came out pretty cute if I do say so myself, lol! Check out Newton's Nook if you haven't already!
