Who Run the World?!

It's my turn on the Rubbernecker Blog.  Time flies when you are having fun, doesn't it!  Or when you have a lot of stuff going on!  I can't believe it is time for a new post already!

For my project this week, I used Daniella, who seems to like to shop until she drops!  I cut her out using her matching die and paired her with a sentiment that seemed perfect to me!  Right Pair of Shoes just seems to fit Daniella!  I used the Rounded Corner Rectangle with Pierce dies to cut out the sentiment and a panel to pop Daniella on.  I wonder what other goodies she has in those bags!

Don't forget to check back for more inspiration from my design teamies.  They always have something gorgeous happening.

Spring Is...Springing?

Hello!  Where I live in southern Alabama, right at the border of the Florida panhandle, spring has sprung.  The azalea bushes are in full bloom and bright patches of color are everywhere you look.  However, the temperatures have dropped back to a chilly level in the morning as I leave for work so I think spring is springing!

Our challenge at Creative Knockouts is aptly titled Spring Is On the Way.  I know there are many areas where spring has still to show its beautiful face.  But it will happen before too much longer. 

I colored Pretty Hat from Broken Fairy Designs in some soft spring colors and cut her out with the Silhouette Cameo.  Some soft lace and springy background paper and she was done!

Spring Green

This week at the Crafty Gals Corner, we want you to Make it Green!  Spring green, olive green, lime green...whatever green tickles your fancy.

This is So Ready for Spring from The Paper Shelter.  Normally I color my image and then hunt for paper to match, but this time I did it the other way around.  I found this striped paper while digging through my scraps for another project.  It didn't work for my other project, but was the perfect fit for this one!  I colored her stripes to match and finished up her outfit with colors from the paper.  Maybe I should try this method more often!  This image also comes with a great background paper, but I loved the stripes so much, I just had to use them!

She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.  A little silver Wink of Stella on her belt and purse buckles adds a bit of shimmer.

Bucket Full of Bunny

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our challenge theme is Easter.  I am looking forward to seeing all of the gorgeous Easter colors and images.

This is Bunny in a Bucket.  This sweet stamp was colored with Copic markers.  I used some paper straws with tulips on them to match the tulips in the stamp.  A little glitter card stock adds a bit of glitz and sparkle.

Birthday Frills

Welcome back for another Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends challenge.  Our challenges are always anything goes.  This challenge, I have made a birthday card because I am running low.  We use them for my co-workers' birthdays and there are 24 people on my team.  We will be adding a couple more, so I have to try to stay ahead!

This is Emma With her Frills On from Fred, She Said Designs.  What a sweetie!  She was colored with Copic markers.  I really need to try to stock up on some masculine birthday cards too.  Those are always a struggle.  Wish me luck!

Hippo Hooray!

This week for my Rubbernecker Stamps feature post, I am sharing a sneak peek of a new stamp set.  These sweet hippos will be a new clear set that will be coming soon.  You get one more hippo and some accessories and several sentiments.  Aren't they just the cutest?!

I stamped three of the hippos from the set and cut them out using the Rounded Corner Square Small Stitch dies.  They were colored using Copic markers.  I wanted them to star, so I kept it pretty simple with an embossed background and a hand cut banner with the sentiment.  

Pop on over to the blog and check out our current challenge.  I am sure you wouldn't mind playing along for a chance to win some cash to spend in the shop.

Spring Has Sprung

Where I live, I was worried that we had skipped spring and rushed right into summer!  We had temperatures in the upper 70s and such terrible humidity!  This week the temperatures have dropped and the humidity has lifted.  We are able to have the windows open and it is wonderful!  I hope it is getting warmer where you are!

Our theme this month at Fabrika Fantasy is Think Spring.  I thought Peonies Fairy was the perfect image for this challenge.

I colored this sweet fairy with Copic markers and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.  

You have a chance to win Fabrika Fantasy images by playing along.  You don't have to use a Fabrika Fantasy image, but if you do, you will be entered into drawing just for projects that have used a Fabrika Fantasy image.
