Creative Knockouts Challenge#9 - Banners & Pennants

The challenge this week at Creative Knockouts is Banners and Pennants and the sponsor for this challenge is Meljens Designs.  They have so many cute images it hard to pick just one.  The design team has created some really super cute cards, so I hope you have a chance to check them out.  For my card I picked the Birthday Bee image.  I colored it with Copics and added a lot of Stickles for major sparkle.  The banners were made using the Ribbon Banner Die from Simon Says Stamp and the papers were from My Mind's Eye "Moments" 6x6 pack.  I used a Spellbinders Oval and Label Eighteen die for the image.  The sentiment and punches are from Stampin Up.  The stamp set which might be retired is called Teeny Tiny Wishes.  

Here is my card for this week.

 I hope you will be able to join us for this week's challenge...

Creative Knockouts Challenge #7 - Paper Piecing

Today we have a fun challenge at Creative Knockouts - it's paper piecing.  I think paper piecing always add a little something special to my projects, so I use this method often depending on my image.  Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments and I am using their digi image Harriet - Friendship.  I colored her in with Copics and paper pieced her dress, hair bow and teddy bear.  The papers are from the Recollection paper pad "Mosaic Memories".  The sentiment is a stamp from Hero Arts.  

Here is my card for this week...

Hope you can join us for this week's challenge.

Art Impressions "Patio Chair Rhonda"

Today's card is a birthday card using the Art Impression stamp called "Patio Chair Rhonda". I needed a birthday card for my sister-in-law's birthday later this month and I thought she would work perfectly.  I'm sure my brother will have some comment regarding me posing for the image!  I colored her with Copics and paper pieced her top.  The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye "Hootenanny" 6x6 pack and the sentiments were computer generated.  The challenge this week at the Art Impression blog is Fun Folds, so my card I believe is called a Z fold.  When you open it up the image is still visible, which is what I wanted with my inside sentiment.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions Challenge 120 - Fun Folds
Simon Says - Use a Rubber or Clear Stamp
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

This post is a little photo heavy, but I wanted to get the views of the card.  Also, it wasn't the sunniest of days, so the pics are a little dark.
Thanks for stopping by...

Creative Knockouts Challenge #5 - Case Study

Today we have a fun challenge at Creative Knockouts called "Case Study".  Participants posting to this challenge need to "CASE" one of the design teams cards.  This will be fun to see what you all come up with.  Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and I picked "Stella Love - Person to Annoy".  I just love Stella and Gus - the images are so cute and they work for any type of card.  I thought this would be a perfect anniversary card.  

I colored the image with Copics, added Glossy Accents to their glasses and red Stickles to the heart and dots on Stella's dress.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye Quilting Bee.  I distressed the edges of the image and sentiment with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The glittered heart brads are from Michaels.

Here is my card for this week...
