Beautiful Sunflower

I am providing the inspiration for the MoonFlower blog today using the newest release, Sunflower Maiden.

I kept this card soft and sweet, but she would look gorgeous with autumn tones as well.  Sunflower Maiden was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I just used some embossing for the background so the design was more subtle than patterned paper.

MoonFlower Digistamps is sponsoring some activities in the Kit and Clowder coloring group on Facebook.  If you haven't heard of Kit and Clowder and you love coloring, you definitely need to come check out what is happening.  Any fan of MoonFlower will be so very excited!

Butterfly Fairy

This week at Crafty Sentiments we have everyone's favorite challenge, anything goes.  We always get so many wonderful entries when we have an anything goes challenge.

I used the sweet Isobel-Butterfly Fairy stamp for my project.  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut by hand.  She has clear Wink of Stella on her wings and so do the butterflies.  I used this gorgeous paper from the Bo Bunny Country Garden collection that is available digitally from Snap Click Supply.

You can win some fun Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along.  If you are chosen as the winner and you used a Crafty Sentiments digital or rubber stamp, you will win 3 digital images.  If you didn't use a Crafty Sentiments product, you will win one image.  We also choose a Crafty Sentiments favorite from all of the projects using a Crafty Sentiments rubber stamp or image.  You will also win one stamp.

I hope you will decide to play along.

Fur and Tails

Another Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post means another inspiration project from me! This week I chose to use Reanne and Kit.  It is such a sweet stamp and I can't get enough of their little faces!

I colored the stamp using Copic markers and used a die to cut it out.  I wanted a fun and colorful background paper and found this in my scrap basket.  I don't think I will ever be able to completely empty that thing out!  The sentiment comes from the new Dogs 1 clear set.  I thought it was so perfect for this stamp too.

While you are visiting the blog and checking out all of the projects for this week, check out our challenge as well.  Playing along gives you a chance to win a gift certificate for the shop.  Speaking of the shop, you should check out all of the new releases for June!  Be on the lookout for even more fun coming soon.

Dance in Your Garden

Hello Rubbernecker fans!  Today is my day to provide you some Rubbernecker inspiration on the blog.  I love how this turned out and it was so quick and easy!

I stamped Wild Garden Frame on a piece of patterned paper.  The pattern was fairly subtle so it wouldn't overpower the silhouette stamp.  I used the Freehand Border Phrase Set for the sentiment and used a die to give it some oomph so it would stand out against the stamp.

If you love Rubbernecker Stamps, you should come play in the challenge.  You could win some cash to spend in the shop.  We have some fun themes happening and you don't have to use a Rubbernecker Stamps product to play along.  If you have some, we would love to see them though.

Magical Birthday

This week at Creative Knockouts, we have a for the boys challenge theme.  I have had to do several of these lately, so I am starting to get over the stress of having to make masculine cards.

This is Wizz Doodles from Dr.Digi.  I colored him with Copic markers and his magic was colored with Copic Spica pens.  They have so much more sparkle in real life.  The area around his hands also has clear Wink of Stella for some extra sparkle.  I created the sentiment using the Silhouette Design software.  It is hard to see in the picture, but the word "magical" is filled with a star pattern.

You have the chance to win 2 digital images for playing along.  The shop has so many great characters in it.  Click the badge below to pop over and say hi.

Trick or Treat!

This week at the Crafty Gals Corner, we are celebrating any holiday!  We want to see your projects that celebrate any holiday.

This is Isabella Trick or Treat from Rick St. Dennis.  She was colored with Copic markers, and it was so much fun!  I cut her out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I love Halloween and making Halloween cards, but I never actually mail them!  The sentiment is a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store.  I have added some sparkle with a gold Spica pen to her buckles and some silver Spica to the wire on the broom.

We have two fabulous sponsors for you this week.  You can click either badge below to go over to each shop to have a look around

Queen for a Day

Hello MoonFlower fans!  Rae Ann here with your dose of MoonFlower inspiration.  For my project I used Gigi Queen.  I thought she looked like a fun challenge.

I loved the idea of a black and gold color palette for Gigi Queen.  Then I decided to throw a pop of teal in there for an accent.  She was colored with Copic markers and I cut her out using the Silhouette.  Her cape was colored with Copics first and then covered with gold Wink of Stella.  Her crown and belt also have gold Wink of Stella. I added some teal embellishments and a gorgeous glass crystal pendant that I found at a yard sale.  I wanted an elegant background paper and I found this awesome embossed paper in the DCWV Bella Armoire stack in my stash.

Do you like challenges?  Would you like the chance to win MoonFlower images?  Planning for a challenge blog is underway and will be going live in the future.  Join the Facebook group to find out when it goes live or watch this blog for more info.
