Pretty in Pink Hippo

Hi friends! I have made a card using this cute little Hippo stamp from Digi Kitty called Hippo Spring Flower. It was a free image if you participated in the Get Owly challenge last week. It was fun seeing what other people did with their Give a Hoot Owl. Well it is time for another Digi Kitty Challenge. We would love to see what you will make with your new image. For those of you who did not receive the Hippo Spring Flower, you may purchase it and play along. If you play along you will receive a freebie for the next challenge. You can find out all the details here.

I am also entering this card at a new challenge blog called I Love Digi! It is a challenge blog that asks you to use any digi image and follow the theme for the challenge. This is the first challenge and the theme is "Think Pink". Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you join the Digi Kitty Challenge for your chance to win another free image. Have a GREAT week!

Peachy Keen Challenge 23

Good Morning Friends!

Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge. I had so much fun making this card! I love the faceless veggies and they were so much fun to color. So, here is the challenge.

Recipe -
*Must contain one of the faceless fruit or faceless veggie stamps.
*Must contain the colors green and yellow anywhere on the project
*Must have a 3d element on the project (this could be the image popped out or an embellishment)

I chose to use several of the faceless veggies. I stamped the tomatoes with red Memento Ink, the broccoli and peas with a green Memento Ink, the eggplant with a purple Memento Ink. I stamped the faces with black Memento Ink. The Memento Ink is the recommended ink to use if coloring with Copics. If you know of others that work equally as well you are welcome to share. Stazon will run with copics, but is great for prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I made the basket with patterned paper. I lightly sketched it using the grid lines of the paper and cut it out. I added yellow gingham paper to line the basket as a "tablecloth". Then I filled it up with the veggies, added some ribbon and raffia to the basket handle and hand wrote "Pick of the Crop". I hope you will join the fun and play along! You have until March 8th to submit an entry. The DT will pick their favorite for this challenge. We love to see what you'll come up with. You can check out all the details here, and while you are there, have a peek at what the other DT members have created. They inspire me with their awesome designs, I am sure they will inspire you too! Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Hello everyone!

My first card was made with a free digi image that is available here. But it doesn't stop there. If you make a card or tag or project with Give a Hoot owl, and link it to Mr. Linky at Digi Kitty, you will get a free Hippo with Flower for participating in the challenge. Here is the card I made with that image. (I just love that Hippo!)

Peachy Keen Challenge 22

Good Morning Friends!
Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge! Angelica has provided us with a sketch. Sketch challenges are always fun to do, so I hope you will check out the details and play along! We love seeing what other people create and get much inspiration from the participants!

For my card, I chose PK-210. I am ready for Spring so I couldn't resist this little cutie with her bunch of flowers. Of course all Peachy Keen Stamps are CUTE!! I actually made 2 cards. Same image with different backgrounds, so I am showing you both. It is funny how changing just a few things changes the entire look. The rest of the design team made some amazing cards that you can see here. Also Sonia, former DT member, has returned to the team. Welcome back Sonia!!

The Peachy Keen Store has some adorable NEW stamps! I can't wait to get my hands on these! Kathy's artistic talent is amazing! I am like a kid in a candy store waiting to see the next new release! Kathy you rock!

Bee Green Freebie with Participation

Here is a card I made with the Bee Green digital stamp at Digi Kitty. All participants for this weeks challenge will receive a free Bee Green digi stamp. All you need to do is become a follower to the Digi Kitty Blog, make a project with a Digi Kitty stamp and use something recycled. There are some free stamps for you to play along or you can visit the Digi Kitty Store to see Kristal's wide variety of images and bundles. She has some really great deals, not to mention they are all reasonably priced to start with!

For my card, I printed two sizes of the bee stamp. I made the bee border and 2 larger bees, one raised on a pop dot. The images were colored with copics. The inside of the card has a matching sentiment that says Bee Mine. This was a fun, easy card that I made this morning. Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Meow-meow Monday Challenge Bee Green

Happy Monday everyone! It is time for another challenge over at Digi Kitty! For this challenge we were to use something recycled.

I think this digi stamp is just darling !!! Thanks for stopping by! It is very much appreciated! Please check out what the rest of the DT has created. I hope you will play along. All participants will receive a free digi stamp, and remember to Bee Green! Recycle! I also wanted to mention Kristal is looking to add to the DT. DT open call expires February 15.
