Scrapbook Stamp Society- Fashionista Purse Bag

It is my turn to share something at Scrapbook Stamp Society. Seeing as it is more of a tips and tricks blog, I made a purse bag. The link for how to make it is HERE.
I had never made one before so it was fun for me as well. I made this for my eldest daughter for her birthday. I put her birthday card in it, and her presents. It worked out great! I thought it was a perfect way to give her her gifts.
Anyway, I hope you go and check out Scrapbook Stamp Society blog. It really does have some pretty neat things shown all the time.

Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Color It Create It Show It Off- "Anything Goes"- (Option- Diva Birthday)

At Color It Create It Show It Off, the challenge is always Anything Goes, but now they are adding fun option themes as well. The option for July is Diva Birthday.
This image is called IMG845. I just love the fact that with the jacket and hat, you can go fall with her. I had wanted to do the whole browns and really make her into a fall card, but then I had to much fun adding color to it and make it more fun. She is a cutie though.
Anyway,
Hugs, and happy crafting!

My Besties International Challenge- "Anything Goes"- (Option- Sparkle, Glam, and Glitter)

Today start a new challenge for the month at My Besties International Challenge. It is always "Anything Goes" using any image from any artist. Option theme is sparkle, glam, and glitter.
There are great prizes to be had for both DT, and (Non) DT winners.
This is one of Sherri Baldy's "Fluffy" Besties, IMG206. Love her!!!! I made this card for my sister for her birthday. She is a shopaholic in a half, lol. The funny thing is, my sister and her youngest daughter only have two days apart between their birthdays, so I usually only send one card for the both of them. Her youngest daughter said, "boy is this sentiment correct. If they don't shop JC Penny's then they don't know where to shop", LOL. Things that kids say sometimes are too funny!

Anyway, I hope you come participate!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Scrapbook Stamp Socitey- Fairy Princess

Since Scrapbook Stamp Society is a great place to learn different tips, I try and include special designs or tips if I can come up with something.
The image you can find here. It is IMG688.
I actually used a cloud die to make the background here. It worked beautifully.
The shape I had drawn around Spellbinders Grand Labels One for the bottom part of the card. The paper is from Madeline Collection 6x6 Paper Stack. I used two different die cuts. Cheery Lynn- Exotic Butterflies Small, and Paper Smooches-Linked Hearts. The clouds were formed with Stampabilities Light Pink ink pad. The wings have Stickles Crystal on them for the sparkle. I colored her with my Copics. I added a bit of lace and pearls and that's it.

Hugs, and happy crafting,
Sandy.

My Besties International Challenge- Anything Goes

Something new and exciting is happening over at My Besties International Challenge starting this post.
It is Anything Goes using any image from any Artist as always, but now we are splitting up winners having the Big Winner and Runner Up to be a non DT member.
 DT members are welcome to participate, but the prizes will be separate to give everyone a fair chance at winning.

We always have an "option theme" just to make things more fun, but you do not have to follow the theme what soever!
The "option theme" for June is Steampunk! The challenge runs from the 1st to the 27th of each month!
I have never really made a Steampunk card before so I really had a lot of fun trying to create something using a Steampunk image.
The papr here is from C M Wieland called Printery Collection. I used three different dies... Spellbinders- Postage Stamp, Cheery Lynn- Steampunk Corner, and Memory Box- Mini Gears. I used Tim Holtz- Vintage Photo, and Antique Linen to distress the card. I colored him with my Copics.
Do decide to come and participate! The prizes to win are always great! :)

Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Color It Create It Show It Off

Hey there, it's that time again to be sharing a card that I made for Color It Create It show It Off. It is always Anything Goes, but soon there will be an "option theme" to the challenge too.
This little cutie is IMG831. I just love this image! I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do with her. I knew I wanted a fold card, but I wasn't quite sure what one until I saw this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkwyDPJgPOY
I didn't put it on the computer like she did, but it was really easy to follow along anway.
The paper is from My Minds Eye- Lost & Found called, Bush "Sweet" Bouquet Paper. The back of this pink checkered paper has little tiny flowers, hence the name. I have a stamp set I use quite often. It is Fiskars, Hello Fabulous. The image shape is from Spellbinders, Labels Ten. I colored her with my Copics then inked around the image with Tim Holtz, Vintage Photo. I used my white gel pen to put faux stitches around the border frame of the image and that basically is it!

I hope you come and play along with us for June!
Hugs,and happy crafting!
Sandy.
