Pink Cameo For The Outlawz

This week over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "Think Pink." Use pink in your project!
Our sponsor this month is Digi Stamps 4 Joy. You can find "Cameo Lady" along with lots of other great digis here: 

For my card, I made a top-hinge base using a Sue Wilson die from her Spanish Collection. Then I used a smaller die in the same collection to die cut the trellis background after first cutting it with Spellbinders' Fancy Lattice die. I then die cut a Spellbinders' Beaded Ovals die. 
The focal point here is all part of the digi "Cameo Lady." I simply did a print and cut of the digi and then colored her with Copic and MEXPY markers. Then I added some pearls and gems to embellish her a bit.

3 Kings Card for The Outlawz

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "punch it." Use punches of dies on your creations this week.
Our wonderful sponsor this month is Digi Stamps 4 Joy. You can find "We Three Kings (Set of 3)" along with lots of other great digis here: 

I began my card by making a top-hinge card using red cardstock and a Sue Wilson die from her Spanish collection. I then made a green background for my digis by using 2 more dies from the Spanish collection. I think it turned out to be an elegant setting for my 3 kings. What do you think?

I did a print and cut of my 3 kings and then colored them using Copic and MEXPY markers with some metallic accents for the gold and silver you see. I added a star for them to follow and adhered them using foam squares to pop them up a bit.

Circle Easel Card for The Outlawz


This week over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "Spinning in Circles." To follow the twist, just use a circle or circles in your project.
Our sponsor this month is Digi Stamps 4 Joy. You can find "Pond Cassanova" along with lots of other great digis here: 
I made a circle easel card using a die from the Spellbinder Grand Circles dies set. Then I die cut some circles in blue card stock using Gina Marie Designs Stitched Circles die. I stamped the sentiment and flies using a CTMH set called "Fun Times." 
I did a print and cut of my digi and colored him with MEXPY markers before adhering him to the blue circle with foam squares. I adhered all the circle die cuts with foam squares to add dimension. Then I added some blue and green sequins to finish off the card.

This week over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "count your buttons." Use buttons on your project!
Our wonderful sponsor this month is Digi Stamps 4 Joy. You can find "4th Birthday" along with lots of other great digis here: 

I used a Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance die to make my top-hinge card base out of orange card stock. Then I die cut 2 Sue Wilson Hollywood dies in yellow and pink to make the background for my digi. I did a print and cut of the digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software and then colored it with Copic markers. I added a few enamel dots, some rhinestones and buttons, of course, to finish the card.

Hogs and Kisses Card with Gina Marie Designs Dies

If you caught my blog post yesterday, you know I recently stopped by my friend Gina's Scrapbook Outlet store and bought a few of her new dies. She has so many fun ones! She let me have this adorable little hedgehog die for free and just asked me to make a card using him and post it to her FB page since she didn't have any card samples with him yet. I couldn't stop with just the one I made yesterday! I had to have a card where I could use this little guy multiple times! 

He fits great on the inner circles of the Gina Marie Designs "Stitched Background Circle Plate Die," so I die cut the circle plate die in 2 different colors and then die cut 5 little hedgehogs and adhered them with foam squares to pop them up a little. I stamped a sentiment using the Hero Arts "Animal Sentiments" set. 

You can find the dies I used here and lots of other great dies at fabulous prices at Gina's online store http://wholesalecraftingsupplies.com.

Gina Marie Designs Outdoor Scene Card

I recently visited my friend Gina's scrapbook outlet store and picked up some fun new dies from her Gina Marie Designs line. If you haven't visited her online store, you need to check out all the fun new dies she's added recently. Here's the link: http://wholesalecraftingsupplies.com. You won't believe how reasonable her prices are!
For this card, I used the lovely "Birch Tree Die" (only $10 for this cover plate die!) to die cut white glitter cardstock. I mounted it on black glitter cardstock and adhered that to the card base.
I added a red bird from Gina Marie Designs "Little Birds" set (only $1 for a set of three birds--you can see the other two birds from the set on the inside of my card). Then I added a gray mouse from the "Little Mice Dies" and stamped the sentiment from  Gina Marie Designs "Bible Quotes 4" ($8.50 for a set of 13 clear stamps) onto the same gray cardstock. I die cut it with Gina Marie Designs "Rounded Stitched Rectangles" ($10 for a set of 10 dies). I die cut a red mat to go behind the sentiment. 
The star of this card is the "Little Hedgehog" die cut. He's $3, but Gina gave him to me for free and just asked that I make a card with him for her and post it to her FB page. She's so sweet! And isn't that little hedgehog adorable?! I die cut him and simply added a little detail for his nose and quills. Being a proud hedgehog owner, I love when I find dies and stamps of hedgehogs! 
 For the inside of the card, I used Gina Marie Designs "Lacey Doily Dies" ($10 for a set of 3 dies) to die cut the sentiment and mat. The sentiment is from Gina Marie Designs "Bird Quotes" ($8.50 for a set of 8 clear stamps).

Sweet Birthday for The Outlawz

This week over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is Anything Goes! Hope you'll join us with 2 of your creations this week!
Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo! They have a great selection of digi stamps and papers you'll enjoy. Check out their store here: http://www.bugaboostamps.com
For my easel card, I used a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. I had some fun ice cream cone paper I used as a background here for the yummy ice cream cones by Bugaboo. I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to do a print and cut of the three cones and then colored them with Copic and MEXPY markers. 
For the sentiment, I die cut the same ice cream paper used behind the digi stamps using a Gina Marie Designs X-Stitched Rectangle die. Then I stamped it with a CTMH clear stamp. I added a few enamel dots to finish it off.
