Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Blog Hop!

Here's a fun blog hop!    There's not much that's cooler than a sequin shaker without further ado, here's my card!

I've had this done for awhile, but I don't think I shared it on the blog.  I used Lawn Fawn stamps on this card....It turned out pretty cute!  I'm hoping I have time to make another one for the hop - they are a lot of fun to make, and even more fun to receive ;)   Play along by linking up at Pretty Pink Posh!

Newton's Nook IPC8!

Time for another Inky Paws Challenge over at the Newton's Nook blog!  Here's my card....

I decided I wanted to use the Love a la Carte set, and for whatever reason that old song "Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch" came to my head!   I couldn't shake it, so I just went with it, lol!   I added my patterned paper and then die cut a circle window from the front of the card.   I did a little creative masking with the Love a la Carte and Frozen Friends stamp sets so that I could change up the "sweetie pie" sentiment.   I stamped the cute li'l pie and honey bun on the inside of the card and colored with Prismacolors.   I paper pieced the little hearts so they perfectly match the paper.   It all looked a little plain, so I added the faux stitching lines with a white gel pen and added the banner up at the top.   I handwrote the "you know that" and I changed the I (heart) snow to read I (heart) you.....because I'm definitely NOT loving snow after this winter - ha!  Here's an inside picture of the card so you can better see the sentiment....

Hopefully the recipient (my husband more than likely!) will get the musical reference!!   Play along with the challenge if you have time!  I believe it ends tonight....go get inky and have a great weekend!

CFC130 - Good Egg!

Hi everyone!   Today I'm playing along with the Cas-ual Fridays "A Good Egg" challenge.   To play along, go here!

Here's my entry!   I created the egg by die cutting an oval and then tracing a stencil with a Copic marker.    I colored with Copics, added some Wink of Stella glitter pen and then a coating of Glossy Accents over each piece.   I was going for a Faberge egg kind of vibe!   Once I had it all done, it looked a little stark with the white background, so I sponged on some Spun Sugar distress ink.   I'm not sure how I feel about the pink.   I tried to go in with a light hand, but it ended up darker than I'd hoped.   I stamped the sentiment using part of a Hero Arts set and also the Shenanigans set from Cas-ual Fridays.  Finally, I mounted the focal panel onto some DCWV glitter paper (awesome stuff!!   no messy glitter everywhere with this paper!).

Hoping I can find some time tonight to play along with the latest Newton's Nook challenge as well!   Hope you're having a great Tuesday!
