I've created my card based on all the summer rain we've been having this year. My card uses the image Rainy Day Bears - Rain Rain, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I decided to challenge myself and try to create a card using on designer paper. Boy, was that a tough one for me. because I love, love, love my paper! LOL! I used a blue cardstock panel embossed with clouds. Behind the image, I used a strip of blue mesh, to add texture. I've used yellow metal brads and metallic raindrop shaped gems to embellish. The sentiment is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches.

Showing Off Summer



Welcome to our new challenge, at Hobbycutz. This fortnight's theme is your favorite and mine - Anything Goes! Whoo Hoo! You have two weeks to play along and there's great prizes up for grabs! We are so excited to see all your creations, so come play along with us!

I went with a summer themed card in bright, summery colors. My card uses the image, Ashley 3, from The East Wind, colored With Promarkers. I used a pair of flip flop buttons in the bottom right corner. In the top corner, I used a wooden flower diecut from Hobbycutz, then quilled vines to go on each side.  I added a shiny crystalized gemstone pearl to the center of the flower. The sunglasses on the image have been given that "Glass" look, with a clear Glaze pen.

Show Us Your Inner Animal With Chessie Catnip Flower Pot Pretties



Wow! Time sure is flying by, isn't it? Can you believe August is almost here?! Anyway, its time for another challenge and we have some new releases to show you, too?! Our theme, this fortnight, is flowers.  Come over to  Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog to play along and see our new releases! Remember, you have two weeks to play along, as always, so we expect to see lots and lots of fabulous entries, this fortnight! The prizes are the usual - There's a random winner to be chosen, Top 3 spots and a guest designer spot up for grabs! Plenty of chances  to win, from Lacy Sunshine! Come see the awesome talent of the design team, at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog!

I have to admit, this project was quit challenging! We were given a digi "Puzzle," I like to call it. Each part is printed separate and you're able to piece them together, however you want.  I have to say, it was a lot of fun to  figure out how I wanted to put it together.  I hope you like my finished project!

My card uses the image, Chessie Catnip Flower Pot Pretties, from Lacy Sunshine, colored with Promarkers. I used this fun paper, from my stash, with hearts and animal footprints. I thought it would go great with this fun kitty image! I fussy cut each part of the image and put them all together, individually, to create this 3D image. I used striped paper across the center of the card.
