Super Dad by Bugaboo Stamps

Happy Monday- Did you survive the Father's Day weekend?  We just stayed home and played in the pool, grilled and played some cards in the evening.  It was a great day!

I wanted to make something different for the ATG challenge over at Craft Your Passion this week. This is my final project for my June Guest Design Team.   So I used an image,  provided by Bugaboo Stamps called Super Dad.  I had a fussy cute template for a gift card holder- perfect for Father's Day and my image too.



It's a little slider envelope- with a tag inside for the sentiment and you just drop the gift card inside- or use double sided tape and stick it on the tag. Presto!!  Hope you enjoy.

Amy

I am a new Design Team Member at Creative Knockouts!!!

Hello- thanks for stopping by!!

I am very excited to announce- I am on the wonderful Design Team at Creative Knockouts!!  So this is my first inspiration post for the  Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  The theme is so much fun- literally...the theme is humor.  The very generous sponsor this week is DoodlePantry and the image I chose to work with is called Decadent Desserts.


I think I have mentioned before- but I am loving the "twisted easel" cards.  I colored the yummy image with my Copics, and had this paper line in my stash.  I love the ice cream images and how much it makes you feel all summery.  My humor is inspired by personal experience, as I am currently learning to balance my Weight Watchers points.  So I thought this was very humorous, especially to those of us always watching our waist lines.
Have a YUMMY day,
Amy

Karleigh Sue New Release Day- June 16th

Happy Release Day!!

Another fun and sexy image to work with at Karleigh Sue's Inspiration Blog.  This cutie is called Roller Derby and can be found HERE.


I used some really cool paper from my stash- do you remember the brand Rusty Pickle?  They have been out of business for awhile- but I loved this paper line called ":Brass Knuckles".  I thought it was totally appropriate for this Bad A$$ Roller Derby chick.
Have a Fabulous Day!!
Hugs,
Amy

Sassy Summer (Curly) by Karleigh Sue

Hi Ya!!!  It's my day to INSPIRE- over at the Karleigh Sue Inspiration Blog.  I  have used a little cutie named Sassy Summer (Curly).  This little cutie has been colored for months- but she went missing.  I thought maybe she was tossed in the trash- (Oh, the horror)!  But alas, she was found in a paper bin- I must have been trying to pair her with the perfect paper and she got scooped up and thrown back in the bin....I was very happy to have her back and made her into a card (finally).



I dusted off my Cricut and found this perfect shaped card design on my Birthday Bash cartridge.  I also used an older line of paper from Simple Stories- love being able to use supplies that have been sitting around for awhile.

I would like to invite you to play along in the Karleigh Sue Challenge HERE- new challenges are every 1st and 15th.
Have a Sassy Summer,
Amy

Craft Your Passion- Guest Design Team- June

Happy Monday!!!  I am very honored to be a Guest Design Team member at Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.  I will be able to make 2 projects for the month of June.  My first project is an image by The East Wind called Aurora 'Fuchsia".  Such a soft and delicate image.


I colored her with my Copics and used an adorable paper collection by Die Cuts with a View.  I am really enjoying shaped cards these days- so had a lot of fun with my Cricut too.  I also used tulle and tied a ribbon on the left side, but it did not show up well in the picture.  And of course, the finishing touch- lots of beautiful flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you join the new challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.
Hugs,
Amy

Art By Miran- DT Call!!

YIPPEE!!!!  One of my favorite designers is opening a Design Team CALL!!  Art By Miran was my first blog post EVER- so she holds a special place in my heart.  I have also had the privilege of winning many of her digis.  I often enter challenges that are being sponsored by ABM.  I am using an image I won - Bubbly Betty.




I created an easel card, my good friend introduced me to recently.  I always use Copics- my favorite!! I am also a big fan of patterned paper and color!!  I like incorporating bling and flowers and diecuts!! 

I have also had the pleasure of participating in the ABM Progressive challenges over on her Facebook Page.  Every month a new and exciting image to work with.

The best part of being apart of the ABM DT would be the sisterhood of POSITIVE crafters,  I have always encountered in her groups.  A very active team- always a lot of inspiring comments and support.  I would be honored to join the ABM Family.
HUGS,
Amy
