Thankful for You -- and QKR Stampede

Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog.  Our optional theme this week is 'Give Thanks', or you can always enter an Anything Goes project.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this would be a great card for this challenge...


This card uses 2 digis from Eureka Stamps -- Fall Frame (ES-digi56801), and I am So Thankful (ES-digi37603).  I colored Fall Frame with Copic markers.  Backing papers are from DCWV.  The card stock is from Close To My Heart. 

Our optional 'Give Thanks' challenge at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog will last all week, so I hope you can join us!

Fancy Folds Blog Hop with Imagine That! Digistamp

Hello, and welcome to my portion of the Fancy Folds blog hop!  I hope you are enjoying yourself and I know you are seeing lots of great inspiration along the way!  You should have arrived here from Jennifer's Blog.  If you stumbled across my blog, start at the beginning, at the Imagine That! Digistamp blog.

I found this fun file in the Silhouette Design Store, and I thought it worked so well with the new Imagine That! Digistamp Scallop Circle Sentiment set.  What do you think?
 Here's the front of the card, with the belly band in place:



I used one of the MANY sentiment circles (there are also many scalloped circles in the set).  They all come both pre-printed and in black & white.  This is a pre-printed version.  I sized it to 2.23 inches, then used a circle die (2.25 inch die) to cut it out.   Papers on this card are also from Imagine That! Digistamp.  I think they match the sentiment so well.  They are the Rose Duo 2 digital papers

Here's the inside of the card, with more of the pretty Rose Duo 2 papers showing:



Imagine That! Digistamp products used on this card:




Off you go to the next stop on the hop, Ink Something.  You'll love what Kristy's got for you!  Have fun, and fancy fold on!

Masculine Happy Birthday -- for DigiStamps4Joy Challenge

It's time for some mid-month inspiration at the DigiStamps4Joy Challenge blog.  Challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist.  The twist this month is, "For the Guys".  Masculine cards can be tough, but with so many great choices in the DigiStamps4Joy store, it makes it easy!


This card uses Pony (lb009), colored with Copic markers.  It comes in a pre-colored version also.  

The sentiment is computer generated.  The plaid background paper is from MHKDesigns, and it is digital.  The burlap trim is from Close To My Heart.  I used a couple of Spellbinders dies to cut out the Pony digi stamp and to back it. 

I hope you can join us this month at DigiStamps4Joy for our optional 'For the Guys' challenge!  We have great digis to win, and I'd love to see what you make!!

Give Thanks -- for MHKDesigns

Fall greetings, fellow crafters, and happy Thanksgiving!  I am posting today on the MHKDesigns blog with a very meaningful card for me.  Thanksgiving, here in the US, isn't very far away, and I was thinking about the many things I have to be thankful for as I made this card.  A year ago tomorrow, I started chemo treatments.  Now, I am full remission.  Give thanks!!!!


I used the sentiment from the Funky Fall Foliage digital stamp set and made it the focal point of my card.  Papers on this card, also from MHKDesigns, are part of the Autumn Accents Digital Paper Pack.

MHKDesigns products used on this card:



Have you joined the MHKDesigns challenge yet this month?  It's anything goes if you use an MHKDesigns image.  You have a little more than 1/2 the month to link up, so please join us!  Check out the MHKDesigners & Friends Facebook group, too!

Make Today Amazing -- a New Release at DigiStamps4Joy

It's Sunday, and there are New Releases at DigiStamps4Joy!  I'm also happy to say I'm back on the design team after being away for awhile.  I missed the team, I missed the stamps, and I missed the creativity of it all.  So, here I am with the first New Release of November with this card:


This digi, Mousebird, (lb010c) comes in both a colored (used here) and uncolored version.  Since I'm not familiar with this particular bird (I believe it's native to Africa), I went with the pre-colored version.  The sentiment was computer generated.  All the papers on this card are from Paper Wishes.  The feather die cuts are from Spellbinders Paper Arts.  The twine is from Timeless Twine. 

I hope you check out the other New Releases at DigiStamps4Joy here. 

I'll be back on Wednesday, Nov 15, with some mid-month challenge inspiration for the "For the Guys challenge at DigiStamps4Joy Challenge Blog.  See you then!

A Touch of Gold -- for QKR Stampede

I'd like to take a moment to thank all the Veterans that have served our country as you are honored officially today, and again tomorrow, on the traditional day.  This country owes our freedom to you!

It's Friday, and time for another challenge at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog. This week's optional theme is "A Touch of Gold", or you can enter anything you'd like.


I used QKR Stampede's Acorn Accent digi on this (Q-digi19403), and the sentiment is "Large Thanks" (ES-digi4402).  The papers, also digital, are by BoBunny, and were purchased at Snap Click Supply.  The touch of gold is added with a piece of gold foil paper cut out with a Paper Wishes die.  The crinkle ribbon is from my stash.

I hope you can join us this week at QKR Stampede for our optional "A Touch of Gold" challenge.  We have great digi prizes you can win, and I'd love to see what you make!!
