Meljens Designs Challenge #162

Happy Thursday everyone!! This was a short week, but it really hasn't felt that way. But alas! it is finally Thursday. I have to get through today and then I can work in my pajamas tomorrow LOL! I hope you all have had a great week.. almost time to enjoy the weekend!! I have been spending my time coloring. I have a few images complete that I need to put on some cards. I'll be working on that in the next day or two. On to the Meljens Challenge ...

Today we are starting a new challenge at Meljens Designs and this week it is a fun color challenge!

Fun colors!! Totally made me think of summer! I guess the photo kind of helped with that too LOL!!  So here is what I came up with:

For this challenge I used two images from Meljens Designs: Beach Umbrella is on one side and Brooke At The Beach is on the other side. They just fit so perfectly together!! I colored the image with Copic. I did some decoupage/popped up several parts of the image: the shells, the crab, part of the umbrella, the pail. I layered torn paper at the bottom to add texture for the sand and see. I used chalk on the edges of the torn paper. I also cut out a cloud shape and inked the background to look like clouds. So, I just made a little beach scene! Now I want to go to the beach! LOL These two images were really fun to work with and they were amazing how they worked so perfectly together to make this card! The inside I used some of the light kraft paper and tore it at the bottom.

Die Cuts and/or Punches At Crafting When We Can

Happy Saturday and for those of you in the US.. Happy Memorial Day weekend. It's so nice to have a long weekend! I took off Thursday and Friday as well. Kevin and I went and saw the new Star Trek film last weekend... GREAT movie! Friday we went and saw Fast and Furious.. another great movie to see ... Love the action in these movies. And then yesterday we went and saw Iron Man. I didn't think Iron Man was as good as the last two, but it was alright. Today, my mother comes over fora  bit. I'm going to grill some hamburgers. Other than that I have been coloring LOL I hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Time for a new challenge over at Crafting When We Can! Our challenge this time is to use Die Cuts and/or Punches. Here is my card:

For this card I used Happy Hour by KennyK. The images are absolutely wonderful to work with. For this image I used Copic to color. I popped her dress and the Martini.  I used Diamond Glaze on the glass to give it that glass effect. All of the patterned paper was scraps. The dies are used are the flowers and the pink leaves. These were all from Spellbinders and My Favorite Things. I added Pearls to the center of the flowers. I used some puff paint, pink, for her pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings. I also pulled out my corner punch. I haven't used that in ages. The Congrats stamp is from a Doodlebug Hampton Arts set. I used the same paper on the inside.

My May DT Day At Meljens Designs

Hi everyone!! Today is my May DT Day at Meljens Designs. This month the theme is Inspiration. I thought about it a bit and thought.. You know what my inspiration is each day??  Jesus, Prayer, My Savior, My faith, Hope and that there are still good people in this world. Something pretty new to me, but also something I'm trying to make a priority. So, with that in mind I used the images Faith Hope Love and Faith Hope Butterflies.And here is the card I came up with:

I used all pink and white on this card, which a touch of turquoise on the butterflies. I colored with Copic. I of course did some decoupage/popped several things LOL the lettering in HOPE, the hearts and circles, the butterflies. I used a Spellbinder die cut behind the top image. The two images are Faith Hope Love and Faith Hope Butterflies. On the inside I used two stamps from "Something Within" Unity Stamps. I added the die cut circle and added some gems to it. The pink paper is embossed.  And I think that is it.

Hope: R0000, R20, R22, R24
Corners/Hearts: RV11, RV13, RV14
Butterflies: R0000, R20, R22, R24, BG000, BG53, BG57

Challenge #63 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner

We have a new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner! This week is Challenge #63 and we are playing with Pink and Girly with a bit of Sparkle! Here is my creation for this week:

I was able to use this awesome image from Delicious Doodles - Dragon Dreams. For this card I used quite a few die cuts from both Cheery Lynn and Memory Box. I also used one of my edge punches. I embossed the one paper in the middle and then used my sanding block to sand it a bit to bring it out more. I used Stickles on the flowers and parts of her and the little dragonette. I created the sentiment. There are 3 different patterned papers that I have no idea where they are from. I distressed some edges and tore others. I added a few gems as well. I colored the image with Copic.
