Coffee Break

Did you jump over and join in the last Progressive Challenge over Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps and get Panda in Mug????

If you did and you entered, you would now have Snorkeling for the current challenge.

Anyway, as I said on my last post, I absolutely love Panda in Mug and as such I made two cards!
Well, here is my second card as promised.



So this time I went with some green tones with my Copic Markers and made a blackboard style card.
Jaded Blossom sentiment from Coffee Break stamp set.
Also used their Coffee Dies and Mini Tag Dies 2.
The others dies are Spellbinders and enamel dots from my stash.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

#coffeeaddict

Welcome to another Fun~day Friday Challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack.

This week's Challenge:
Starts: Friday, May 19th  12:00AM
 Ends:   Friday, May 26th 6:00PM
(Eastern USA time)

Ok, so this week we also have an Optional Twist!
The twist is to add 2 or more triangles.

This week's Sponsor is Little Blue Button Stamps.

Little Blue Button Stamps
I got the chance to use the fun image Panda with Cup.



Such  a cute image! I made this card for my daughter who loves Panda's, wears glasses (gets it from me I'm afraid) and loves coffee.
When I showed her the finished card she said "that is soooo me!"

So Panda's are a bit like Zebra's in that you only really need to shade a few area's rather than colour. So I used my Cool Gray Copic Markers to shade and then coloured the glasses frame and coffee cup.
Isn't the background gorgeous! It's by Digi Papers by Lozzy and it's from the range called Paper Mixed Media (mmo).
Sentiment is perfect! and by Jaded Bossom from Coffee Break stamp set and I used one of their Mini Tag Dies cut down. Now I got a bit creative with the two triangles above the sentiment.
I actually cut a Hexagon using the Stitched Hexagon Dies from Jaded Blossom and then repositioned to cut out 2 triangles! Perfect and they look great!
The Heart dies are from SU.

Gus the Bad Egg!

Time for another Inspiration post over at Scrapper's Delights Blog Challenge.


This time I chose to use Gus Dragon & Dinosaur 1.


With this set, you get Gus with and without wings, and also 2 sets of eggs.
I chose to use my Gus with wings and placed him in front of the egg.
Coloured with Copic Markers and a simple embossed background. Hard to tell I know but you can see up the top left corner, all the dots are embossed.
My sentiment is another from Jaded Blossom - Eggcelent stamp set this time.
Grass is die cut using Jaded Blossom's Spring Dies and the speech bubble is a retired SU framelit sponge with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distressing Ink.

Don't forget that the image Anna Mae 4 is being used in the Facebook Page's Progressive Challenge this month. We would love you to join in.

Dowager Countess Laugh till you leak!

What a fab image Dowager Countess from Kenny K is!

The Countess is the image we got for entering Kenny K's Monthly Facebook Challenge last month.
I love using that image to colour up and then have something for the next month.
I get to colour up the image that way, as I have many, many, that have not been printed and coloured!


I coloured her up with my Copic's and used one of my Tim Holtz Dies to have a cut-out on my patterned paper. I then layered another pattern paper behind this to peek through.

I think she turned out great and must admit that I was a bit stumped at what saying to use with her.
I've been wanting to use this one for a while so figured, why not! It's one from the Dylusions range.

I'm entering her in the following challenges:
  1. Club KennyK Facebook Challenge - May
  2. Dragon Lairs Design Challenge - May
  3. Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge # 26
  4. Love to Scrap Challenge # 97
  5. Mix It Up Challenge # 1
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

May Blooms Mother

Time for another Progressive Challenge.

Here's the one for this month over at Simply B Stamps - May Blooms.
If you have seen my other SBS postings for Progressive Challenges, you will know we have to follow a few rules to enter.
So this month we had  to use both the image and the sentiment, use at least two pattered papers, and add flowers.


Coloured with Copic Markers.
Stamp Rectangle Dies from Ebay.
Flowers from my stash.
I distressed the edges of the two papers and the cardstock I matted the middle layer with.

I actually picked out and created the card base before I coloured my image this time.
LOL, so not me! I always colour up the image and then try to find something to match it,
I guess because it's a bit fancy for me that I wanted to make sure it worked.

I am entering her in the following Challenges:
  1. Glitter 'N' Sparkle # 237
  2. QKR Stampede Challenge # 242
  3. The Paper Shelter # 292
  4. Cute As A Button # 34
