Beachy Pick Me Up Truck

I want to share a card I made using Little Miss Muffet digital stamps.  I was so inspired by seeing what the other DT girls made using PNG images that I had to do one myself.  Here what resulted in combining Pick Me Up Truck and Polka Dot Pals Wendy -


Why not give it a try yourself.  The current Little Miss Muffet anything goes challenge is on for another week and we would love to see your merged creation or any creation as far as that goes!

Aloha,

It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite either dry or heat embossing.  Use some type of embossing on your creation and tell us why it's your favorite.

This week our sponsor is:
My favorite is absolutely embossing powder for me. I love that magical change that takes place with heating and all those wonderful colors and shine! I love the little details is adds to create a picture.  Here is my card, using Frantage deep impression embossing enamel to add a little texture to the sea foam -


This is another double duty post since my card features the following products from the Frantic Stamper's newest release.  The dies used for this card are all from the new Frantic Stamper release Summertime Leisuretime.   Frantic Stamper dies used were Day at the Beach (FRA-DIE-10466), Playing in the Sand (FRA-DIE-10467) and Retro Label Maker clear stamps (FRA-CL-113).  The background was freehand "watercolored" with distress inks as were the images. 

We would love for you to head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

All About Travel



Another Wednesday has rolled around which means we have a new challenge for you over at Little Red Wagon.  This week Imke is our hostess and she has chosen "All About Travel" as the theme.  For this challenge we are hoping to see your favorite places, beach, mountains, camping, whatever...  This would be a great challenge for a scrapbook page or fancy journaling page.


I took this opportunity to showcase a couple of my favorites...one of my favorite stamp sets is called 'Travelin' Man' and he's made it to the beach, one of my favorite places to be -



The Bunny was colored with Copic markers and the sand and sky were created with distress oxide ink (salty ocean and I think antique linen).  He looks like he is there to stay for awhile.  

How 'bout heading over to Little Red Wagon, take a look at the fab projects the girlfriends have made and then linking up so we can see yours?

Aloha,
Brenda

Happy Camper

I hope your week is off to a good start.  Since the month is flying right on by, I want to share a couple more cards made with the new Frantic Stamper release Summertime Leisuretime.  My first card is using one of my favorite dies from this release - Happy Camper (FRA-DIE-10473)  you'll also notice I've use Hammock and Palm Trees (FRA-DIE-10473) again as well as the Sweet Summertime stamp set (FRA-CL-108) -


My next card is in honor of July 4 which will be here for us in the US before we know it.  This card uses the Banner Yet Wave stencil (FRA-STN-006in the background as well as the Five Star (FRA-DIE-10475and 3D Stars & Flag Field (FRA-DIE-10477).


The flag was created using the thin banners and inner stars from Five Star.  The small stars were glued to the Flag Field die.  The rest is pretty much self explanatory.  There are so many things you could do with this set, just let your creative juices start flowing.

So glad you stopped by.  Be sure to check out the Frantic Stamper website for all your creative needs!

Aloha,
Brenda

Sketch Saturday #518

Can you say classic?  It's time for a new sketch over at Sketch Saturday and in my mind this is a classic to be used over and over.  


I flipped it over on it's side for my card.  And, yes, that's a piece of washi tape down the middle,


I'm using an image from our sponsor, Scrap N' Dipity, Dino Emma.  Isn't she a cutie?  Here's what happened for me -


I loved coloring this fun image.


I hope you'll come play along with us.  For more information about the prize and to see what my teamies have done with the sketch, jump on over to the Sketch Saturday blog.






Relax


Nothing says Friday more than your favorite beverage especially when you are drinking it out of a coconut shell with one of those darling little umbrellas!  I'm sharing another card from the June Frantic Stamper release.  This card is made with one single die set called Relax with a Drink  (FRA-Die-10470).  


When I imagine enjoying a fancy drink like this, I can help but picture a beautiful sunset being involved.  The "sunset" panel was created by blending squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, abandoned coral and picked raspberry distress oxide ink.  Relax was cut from the panel.  The panel was adhered to the card base and Relax was popped up with foam tape.  The coconut drinks were cut from scraps and a little texture was added using a Pigma Micron pen.  They were placed on the panel along with some yummy sequins.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful, enjoyable weekend...take some time to enjoy your favorite little drink.

Aloha,
Brenda
