CCEE2130 International Tiger Day

 Today is International Tiger Day.  Lois; challenge for this week is to include a tiger (or other cat) on your card -- tiger, lion, your own little tabby (you get the idea).

Check out the samples the team left over on the CCEEstampers website:

This is the only tiger I have in my collection. So I used this MFP tiger from a set long ago. I had fun with this layout and tried to make use of some of the colors from the background design paper.

Fab n' Funky Christmas challenge 534

I made this card for the Fab n' Funky challenge today and the theme of the challenge is Christmas. I always love a Christmas challenge that offers me a chance to get my Christmas stash going during the year. You can find the details for the challenge here:

I stamped this Unity image with versamark ink, then added gold embossing powder to it After heating it, I colored the tree green with a copic marker. I added a silver gemstone star to the top of the tree and added these holly stickers to the corner..

I love my house mouse stamp collection, which started over 18 years ago, and thought this was a good one to use for this week's House Mouse challenge with the food and drink twist. I tried to get a glossy finish with my clear Nuvo spread over the image.. I colored this with colored pencils. The sentiment is made from dies.  Here are the details for the HMFM:

Inkspirational Challenge #244


The challenge today on the Inkspirational challenge was to use spots/dogs. So since this design paper supplied some spots or dots for me I added this Impression Obsession image that just came an order today. Always anxious to try out the new toys in my collection. I used some polka dotted design paper for the butterflies that were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. I colored my image with copic markers.

Here's my card made with stamps from Unity and a stencil from Gina K. I used distress oxide inks for the sun, versafine black for the image and sentiment and copic markers for the coloring. The little ladybugs are made of wood.

CCEE2129 National Hot Dog Day

 Yesterday (7/21) was National Hot Dog Day, so include this national treasure on your card.  If you don't have a hot dog image, you can use any kind of fast food item. Thanks, Lois for this terrific challenge. 

I've had this little stamp in my collection for quite some time, but it had a hamburger. I drew a hot dog and glued it over the hamburger just for this challenge. I love the sketch challenge over on SCS this week , so I used that design for my layout. 

Summer is passing so fast, but hope you are enjoying yours!!! Thanks for checking in on our challenge and hope you will check out all the team's samples over on the blogsite here::
