All Dressed Up Challenge is continuing through the month--new images available!

Hello Dressy Fans :)

It is again time to see what new All Dressed Up beauties Wendy has created for us, and you won't be disappointed.  These new images are just perfect for your Summer cards!
They are now available in the Etsy Store -}here 
I Chose to use the image called Day Dreaming and, as I have  a teenage Granddaughter, I gravitate towards these especially!  Wendy Burns has many of them in her Etsy Store.  Green and Purple is one of my favorite color combos-I needed a contrast color in order for the background treatment to show up properly so chose a warm vintage brown copic color.  In order to achieve this whimsical effect, it's made with using rubbing alcohol and Q-tips!  Mounted on a creamy yellow crackle paper, accented with metal button brads, using a vintage stamp design paper and stamped with a clear sentiment on front,  I love it!
Remember to pop over and buy them from our Etsy store and don't forget we have two challenges running right now - 
ending on the eve of the 14th 
ending on the last day on the month. 
The current theme is Stars and/or Stripes.
I am sure you will agree that Wendy has produced another four absolutely gorgeous images this month.  We'd love to have you come over and take part in the Challenge that's still going on through the end of the month-It's a great way to expand your digi library because the prize is an image from the store!

Polkadoodles is the Sponsor at Come and Get It! Theme is to use 2 or More Designer Papers~

No automatic alt text available. Over at Come and Get It, we've got a Challenge going on with the theme "Use 2 or  more Designer Papers" with any image.  The DT is using images by Polkadoodles and I'm so thrilled with her "Darling Bud" series!  The one I used is called Crocus_the Darling Buds. 
I probably should have used several different Crocus colors but I just love the color combination of pinks and greens.  There are so many beautiful images to use at this site-check it out!  After coloring her with copics, I mounted her on foam dots for dimension, found 2 different design papers and then started creating the cluster of flowers.  Before starting hot gluing them on, I placed 2 larger foam dots in the corner so I would have a base to push the stick pins of the green bird and pink enameled heart into.  I used a combination of paper flowers and rose buds in pink & white.  I added some white paper lace on the side of the image and 3 small pink epoxy dots in the bottom right corner.  On the inside, I found a complimentary paper, and stamped a KKS sentiment stamp on a die cut scalloped oval.  Come on over and check out our Challenge and hopefully yours will get picked by the DT to win some images!

I must say this is one of the Sherri Baldy's images (Scan 0001) that I love more and more!  It was a breeze to color-I'm sure because I just love it so much! A real modern look that could be used for so many occasions~  Over at Color It Create It Show It Off, we are head over heels reminding everyone that there is still a CICISIO Challenge going on here . It's a great chance to win a choice of these images and share your creative projects!  It's theme this month is Diva Birthday -Anything Goes.I colored this Beauty with Copics and used some great design papers: clouds, geometric patterns, Road map paper and matted her with a complimentary red.  For accents, I made 2 fishtail banners and a twine bow with red heart button.  On the inside I showcased the cloud paper in the background and stamped a KKS sentiment on it.

DIVA BIRTHDAY-Option Anything Goes!

A very whimsical Summer- like card for that friend's Birthday!

I had such fun making this adorable image.  Throughout this month being a Guest Designer at Kimmie's Kave I've re-acquainted myself with the Stamping world.  Mostly I work in digis for my images but can say I had a lot of fun using the ones from Kimmie.  This week's challenge is to use Circles!  This card was just full of fun features-This is the image Lulu's Wheels from this month's new release and I just had to put her on the road using a free lance road with lane dividers.  I used the green "circles" known as polka dots lol for the grassy land next to the road, used a die cut that had a tree inside a frame (I fancy cut out the frame) for some greenery, added another KKS sentiment and some great cloud paper.  It seemed the perfect stamp to use to wave goodbye/so long to my new friends here at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and thank you for all the help learning the posting ropes on your site and the encouragement I received.  You're a great group of ladies.

It's Father's Day over at Come And Get It Challenges-ATG and Time for Tea Images is sponsoring us!

 Over at Come and Get It Challenge, we are celebrating Father's Day!  Our Challenges are always ATG, but starting in July we will also have Themes!!  How exciting~
This cute image is from Time For Tea Images and she's called World's Best Dad.  I love how she's a little girl wearing her Daddy's Slippers and bringing him a gift and newspaper!  Since I'd already colored her in a fav combo of brown and blue, I found several cute papers and even a blue gingham ribbon to set it off.  In the bottom left corner I used a KKS sentiment stamp "You're So Special To Me" and added some beaded blingy blue flowers underneath it.  I also added a silver double heart charm.  On the inside, I stamped the perfect sentiment on her Dad's card.  It's one from KKS also.
I'm sure you all are making cards to share with your loved ones so show them off!  Come over to our Challenge and have some fun!
