Delightful Challenges "Fall Days"

Today starts a new Challenge over at Delightful Challenges.  We want to thank everyone who joined us last week. We had some wonderful entries.

For this week's Challenge our theme is: "Fall Days"

Our Wonderful Sponsor for this week is:


£10.00 store voucher

I did something a little different for me this week. I chose three different images from Digital Delights by Louby Loo for my card and wanted to combine them together in order to create a fall scene.  Of course, at the time I thought I knew what I was doing, however, I ended up asking a wonderful friend of mine for help. So I must send out a big thank you to Tammy for all her help with combining my image digitally.
The images that were merged in with the fence and sunflowers are the crow, the basket of apples and the pumpkins. I colored my image with Copics  and added  sunflower buttons to the centers of the sunflowers and the raffia bow.  The bumble bee  is also a button that I have had forever in my stash. The sentiment does not show very clear but it simply says "Autumn Wishes".

The clouds were sent to me by another friend, thank you Kim.  I distressed them with some ink and popped them up with some pop dots for a 3-D effect. I then added a vine die and my project was finished.

Here we go again with a new challenge at Love to Create Challenges.  We had some really wonderful entries last week with our "Kraft, Yellow and One More Color" Challenge and we want to thank all of you who shared your creations with us.

This week we would like to for you to "Make Your Own Flowers"

Our Sponsor this week is "Crafty Sentiments Designs"



For my inspiration card I chose to use a very sweet image from Crafty Sentiments Designs called "Kai".
I started with Kraft Cardstock and then added my designer papers. I colored my image with Copics and added some stickles to her bow.
I used pink Mulberry Paper to punch out my flowers. Mulberry Paper is a lot like a thin tissue paper so it took me awhile to get them all punched without tearing any of them. I used light pink brads for the centers of my flowers.
On the inside of my card I added a personal message area on layers of my designer papers. I distressed my image and message area with ink.

My Card Recipe:
Image - "Kia" - Crafty Sentiments Designs
Sentiment - "Daddy's Girl" - Whimsy Stamps

Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #24 "Anything Goes - Stitchy Bears"

Hey everyone, here we are again with a new Challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. These weeks are just flying by....What a great turn-out we had last week for our "Add a Flower Challenge" and we want to say thank you to all who entered.

The Challenge Theme for this week is "Anything Goes Any Artist"

of a $5 Gift Coupon to their store.

My first card for the Challenge this week is a digital image from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps called "Corey". What a wonderful image this is and it was so much fun to design a card around.
I very seldom use purple in my cards, not sure why but it just is not a color I am drawn to.  However, that may change because I love the purples I used this time. I am really not sure if this is a tent card because it is shorter than other tent cards I have seen. I used some dies to cut my image out as well as the sentiment.I added some corner dies which are embossed but it just did not show up in the picture.
The flowers were some that were leftover from a friend's wedding. Thank you Kim...They are not showing up as pretty as they actually are because they have twigs of small pearls shooting out from the big pearls in the middle.   I distressed my image and sentiment with ink and then added a flourish die to the flowers.
