Rainbow Horray !!!!!

Hello ... I have a new card today ...
 Rainbow Horray !! Let there be cake !!

For this card, I started with white card stock and using a water brush painted the order of colors of the rainbow.  I then sprayed some Heidi Swapp glitter spray over the painted area. 
Using a My Favorite Things die 'Hooray' I placed it over the colored area and cut away.
I placed the die cut over the front to mark where I wanted placement.
I then stamped the 'cake and ice cream' using a stamp from Stampolicious, Broken China distressed ink and clear embossing powder to give it shine.
I then bent the 'hooray' over the stamped sentiment and glued it down in place. 
Next, using markers and a ruler ... I ran stripes of the rainbow out of the die cut to the edge.
I added the 5 rainbow sequins next to the color in the die.
All of this was mounted on a top fold white cs base.

Birthday card ready to go ....

March Washi

This is my Design Team Card for the month of March with 
Stinkin Inkers. 

And the theme this month is

Break out your washi tape and have fun.

This card starts with grey card stock.  I ran peach and teal washi tape on the diagonal.
Using a Spellbinders heart die set.  I cut both that back and scrolled top out of the same grey card stock.   On the base of the full heart I matched up the teal washi tape and then anchored the scrolled heart on top of that.
I stamped the 'hello' with VersaMark and silver embossing powder.
I anchored the heart to match the diagonal of the washi and used dimensional tape to lift it off of the base.   I went over the scroll work with wink of stella.
All of this was anchored onto a teal cs top fold card base.

Tic Tac Troll

   This card is my design team card for  
We have a TIC TAC TOE challenge this month.
My favorite. 
The game piece is below.

For my card I went with the top row: ribbon or twine, coloring and glitter.
The stamp is from Bugaboo and I used markers to color her in.  The balloon was cut with a Simon Says balloon die and overlaid the balloon in the stamp.  I dipped that balloon in glue and dragged it through hot pink fine glitter and let it dry completely and then did it again.  That balloon has a lot of texture from the glue and glitter layers. I cut the stamp down and set it onto dark purple cs for framing.  I then wrapped a purple satin ribbon bow around the bottom.
I stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts rummber stamp, VersaMark and silver embossing powder.  Then, punched it out with a inch and a half punch from Recollections.  
The designer paper is from Simple Stories.  
All set on a dark purple side fold base. 


 Here is the TicTacToe challenge for you to play along:

March Fairy

 Hello from the design team  at the
Brown Sugar Challenge.
The theme this week is
 Spring or Easter
and our sponsor this week is
For this pretty stamp I used colored pencils on her.  I then started on the front. I smudged and blended Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint and Broken China in both distress and oxide inks. I stamped on top of that with a background stamp by Fiskers - using Broken China, Peeled Paint and Wilted Violet oxide.   I used a postage stamp edge die cut on it from Spellbinders.  I framed the image with blue card stock - rounded the top corners and then mounted it on the smudged die front.  The banner was stamped with a set from Fiskars using VersaMark and gold embossing powder.  I found some gold mylar stickers in my stash and used two long swirls along the one side and the two squared hearts on the flag.  Some Nuvo drops in the corners and it's complete.
I hope you decided to join us on this challenge and I wish you luck as well.
Have a great crafting day.

Lucky Bear

This is my design team contribution for
The Theme is 'LOTS OF GREEN'

The digi stamp is 'Teddy without' 
I water colored the bear with distress inks and a water pen which made him look so fluffy.
I used Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn.  For the hearts I used a red marker. I dropped Nuvo in the eyes and tied a green satin ribbon bow for the head.
I used my stacked circle dies to cut the bear and a frame circle out of black cs.
I found this sheet of pattern paper in my stash (and I have a bunch - I honestly don't know how it got so big - the stash I mean) I don't know where it's from - it's in the same two shades of green.
The sentiment tag attached with dimensional tap and lime green Nuvo drops in the corners and the edge of the circle completes the fun.  All set on a black top fold cs base.

Thanks for popping by for a visit.  I hope you play along in the challenge and wish you luck if you do.
Have an amazing day !!!
