The Sugar Bowl DT call

Yay - The Sugar Bowl Challenge is coming back on the 25th Sept. And they are looking for some new DT members. So I thought I would give it a go. I don't normally put myself out there (Ok , so I've never done it before), but I really do love my Sugar Nellie Stamps. So here goes - my entry for the DT call for The Sugar Bowl Challenge. I have used a new digi stamp - Furry Friends Parachute Jump. These new stamps are super cute. The clouds are Memory Box - fluffy clouds. And the papers are proper papers - yay, go me. Angelica and Adam by Crafters Companion. The Sentiment is a Personal Impressions stamp which I guess I have had for a while (a long while). And as usual for me, three wee rhinestones in the corner. I don't seem to be able to get passed the simple cards at the moment. Not that I have ever done real fussy ones. I also want to enter it into the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Anything goes.

Sketch Saturday

Another of my new Sugar Nellie Digis. This wee Guy is from the Furry Friends range and is called Waiting for you. I have coloured him with Polychromos pencils. I tried to give him some furry fur, not too sure if it worked that well. And I even used proper papers (not digi), shocking I know. I really should use more and get rid of some of the huge pile. Well anyway, the papers are First Edition - J'adore. I have cut the square with Lil Inkers stitched square. The heart is a sissix framelit die and the sentiment is from Whimsy stamps. I am entering this into the Competition over at Sugar Nellie which has some awesome prizes.

Other Challenges I am entering it into are:-
Papertake Weekly - To die for
Sketch Saturday - Sketch

Sugar Nellie Biking

Had another play with my new digi's from Sugar Nellie. They are all cute, so was a hard choice, but this wee chappie won - Furry Friends Easy Rider. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs (again) - Something Wicked by Lauren Grier. The sentiment is Personal Impressions. Added a bit of twine and a few die cuts. MFT buttons and the tab is from MFT Blueprints. Coloured with Polychromos pencils and blended with sansador and paper stumps. I am entering him into the competition over at Sugar Nellie where you can win a chance to be a Guest Designer or even a chance to win a class over at Kit and Clowder. I haven't gotten any of the classes yet, but even just being around their Facebook page, I have seen an improvement in my colouring.

Simply Betty - July Bettina

Oh Man, I'm struggling with Blogger at the mo. I can get onto my Blog, but when I try to open someone else's Blog, more often and not I get unable to display notices. Just when I think it is sorted and can get on others it then starts all over again. It gets so frustrating. Anyway, back to my card. This is my final card for the Challenge over at Simply Betty Facebook Challenge. You don't have to use all four images, but if you enter the challenge with all four, then you can get back credit for the next challenge images. So, my final card is of Bettina Mermaid. The extra for Bettina is to use heat embossing. I think I might have gone a little overboard with the frantage, but hey - I have used heat embossing. The papers are downloads from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Here without you by Krystal Hartley. The shells are again Marianne D dies. I added a bit of kraft card cut into wee strips just to make it slightly different from the other cards. Haha.

And a final picture of all four cards/gift bag together. I loved these Mermaids and working with them.

Happy Birthday Kitty

I had a wee play with one of my new stamps from Sugar Nellie. They are all super cute. And are Digi Stamps, so you get the straight away - Awesome. So I made a wee bag for my first attempt. I bought loads of these bags years ago. I did use them, but it was only when I started chopping off the handles that I really started liking the end results. I normally add ribbon for the handles, but couldn't find any to go, so I added some raffia (another old buy haha). The wee tag is a MFT Die-namics die - Pet Charms. Bought for the doggy bits, but knew the cat ones would come in handy sometime.  I have also used some elements from the MFT Blueprints 14 dies. The papers are downloads from Pink Petticoat, Washed out and gingham. 
I am entering this into the challenge over at Papertake Weekly where the theme is Anything Goes. I did start this for their challenge last week, but didn't get the image coloured in time. The sketch is from Papertake Weekly sketch #63.
I am also entering it into the challenge over at Sugar nellie. They have a super prize on offer over there. They want you to make anything using any of the new Digis and you could win a Guest Design spot or even some colouring classes. Now how cool would either of these be.

Simply Betty - July Sheri

Card number 3 for the Simply Betty Facebook Challenge and this time I'm using Sheri Mermaid. The extra for this one is twine or ribbon, so I dug out the twine. The papers are again Sweet Shoppe Designs - Carolina Coast by Melissa Bennett. I decided to add a wee charm on the twine. The starfish is a Marianne Design die. That's about all for this one.
