Sentimental Sundays Thank You Challenge

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and enjoying their Sunday here.  It is time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge and today the theme is:
THANK YOU.





This week's Sponsor is:
Donating: 3 images, winners choice


I decided to create a project with some new Cricut Cartridges I received for Christmas.  As many  of you know the Cricut Imagine is being discontinued but if you have a Cricut Expressions 2 you can do the cuts (just not make the cardstock). I asked for a bunch of cartridges since they were only like $12 bucks.  

This is created using the cartridge, Lori's Garden.  I used some of my own patterned papers from the MME Lost and Found Collection.  The doily and the butterflies are on this cartridge and I add some bling from my collection.  The sentiments is actually from a set of stickers I have had lying around forever. 

I cut the card from the Art Philosophy Cartridge. I still have some work to do to figure out the Imagine cartridges since they work differently from the regular ones but so far I am loving the possibilities I see here. 

I will also be entering this one into the following challenges.

Whimsy Stamps GDT Call

I decided to give it another shot at the GT call at Whimsy Stamp for the month of March.  I am a huge fan of many of the Whimsy Stamps especially Kenny K, Elisabeth Bell and Sylvia Zet.  I have been become quite addicted to many of their sentiment and die sets. I just recently acquired the some new Elisabeth Bell Stamps from the Cottage Cuties line and just could not wait to ink them up. This one is called Bella Sole Special Delivery.



Finally found some free time today and created this card (warning...I have been playing with my bright colors again).


Here are my Copics list

Skin: E21,23,R11

I have also been seeing these adorable paper bows that I have been wanting but I am trying to be more frugal in my shopping. This is from a fabulous template available over at Cutting Cafe. I do not have a machine that can do SVG so I cut it out myself. Flourishes are from MFT and the flowers are from my stash. The paper is actually a mix of scraps I have in my stash..think it is MME and Echo Park with some cardstock...so nice to be clearing out some of my hoarded papers.

Kraftin Kimmie Rose

Had a great time last night participating in Kraftin Kimmie first facebook release party.  On that they announced they are having a Krafty Girl GD challenge and the weekly challenge for Kraftin Kimmie-anything goes.  I love their images so decided I would jump in for a possible chance to win. The challenge is to use metal in your project.


Today is an example of why I LOVE STICKLE!.  I had these silver metal  large brads and this metal love in my stash for a while but they were silver so I was not feeling that with the color combo I went with. SOOOO I pulled out my Gold Stickle and colored over them both to match!  Also had to throw some stickle onto my flowers in the image...can you have too much Stickle haha.

The paper is from MME Lost and Found series.  I colored the image with my Copics and Spectrum Noirs since I am lacking in Aqua tones.

Skiing Fun-Loves Rubberstamps Inspirational Post

Welcome to another Monday Morning.  It is time for my Mondays Inspiration at Loves Rubberstamps.
Though it has been a cold winter here in Jersey we have kinda missed any massive snow which my kids have been a bit bummed about.  I was always of the theory if it is gonna be cold at least have snow cause you can have so much fun in it.

Having said that I decided to use on of my Belle and Whistles Stamps called Skiing.  Now remember that these beauties are no longer available once sold out since Belle and Whistles has closed their doors so if you are an Elisabeth Bell fan be sure to stop by to get that image you always wanted. I have had the collections from these stamps in my Collection for some time but it is great to be able to still use them.

I also used a Whimsy Sentiments Stamp set. The Snowflakes and frame are cut from my Cricut (Art Philosophy Cart) and I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs.


I will be entering this card into the folllowing challenges:

Bitten by the Bug-Snowflakes
