{RC} Quirky Cuties Hop!

Hey there! I'm super excited and honoured to be participating as a special guest for Reverse Confetti's Quirky Cuties Blog Hop! I am a colouring enthusiast, so this stamp line is one of my RC faves! They are such fun to colour…if you haven't picked one of these sweet characters up yet, I highly encourage you to! You definitely won't be sorry that you did- I have so much fun colouring these cuties!

You should have arrived from the oh-so-talented Stacey Schafer's blog!

I chose to work with the newest Quirky Cutie, Rocky Racoon…. I've coloured him with copics and a bit of black pastel pencil for the dark shadows. I glossed up his nose (love the heart noses!), eyes and paw pads with glossy accents. I fussy cut him out- His shirt is paper pieced- and used some foam dots to pop him up on an extended cut of the new Tag Me, Too Confetti Cut. 

You'll also see Arrow, Love Note, and Tag Me Confetti Cuts used on my card.

The inside of the card features the word dies from Tag Me, Too and sentiment from Rocky Racoon, stamped in Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.

Anyone interested in some PRIZES?? Oh yeah!  TWO random commenters will win:
Studio 3 Solutions Color Cubbie + 3 Quirky Cuties (winner’s choice)…so leave comments along the way to increase your chances of winning!

Up next on the hop is my uber talented friend and favourite kiwi, Miss Sarah Gough! And if you get a little lost along the way, you can always check back at the Reverse Confetti Blog for the complete hop list. Thanks for stopping by!

{PPC/TE} Blog Hop!

Hey there! I am super excited today to be paired up with one of Taylored Expressions Designers for a bit of an unconventional blog hop of sorts! 
Taylored Expressions and Perfect Paper Crafting are joining forces for some 'Crazy Dayz' of hopping! So instead of just one main Blog Hop, you'll get lots of different days to hop around to various designers blogs! Fun, huh?

I've used the really cute stamp and die set from TE called Love Bugs. I coloured with copics and added a jar die cut of thin vellum over top of the main jar die. It gives it a bit of a softer affect. I didn't adhere the vellum down (except under the lid on the top) so that you can lift it up to expose the love bugs underneath! Which have a bit of glossy accents and glitter on their lil' bums and wings, and gloss on the heart as well.

I know you are thinking 'WOW, she is genius!' right about now, but I cannot take credit for this one- I swiped the idea from my pal Sarah, who had me pining over this set ages ago :)

I used my trusty Perfect Paper Crafting tools: Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat to get those oh-so-precise-layers! All of the panels are matted in 1/16" black CS. Use Jenny5% to receive a discount on all of your PPC products HERE!

Now head over to Taylored Expressions designer Kendra's blog to see what she has to show you! And remember to leave comments and 'like' Perfect Paper Crafting on Facebook for your chance to win! Both of these fabulous companies are giving away a $50 gift certificate!

Note: My layout is from the Deconstructed Sketch (#158) from a few weeks ago...

{SPD} Things Just Goat Serious

Time for another challenge at SugarPea Designs, and this time we want to see some of your punniest stuff! SPD is no stranger when it comes to those punny, play-on-words sentiments, so you have A LOT to choose from!
I've used Totes Ma Goats for my card today and you'll also notice that my layout is courtesy of last weeks Sugar Sketch (SPDSS07).

I've used my Perfect Paper Crafting tools for those perfect 1/16" mat layers! Use Jenny5% to receive a discount on all of your PPC products HERE!

We only have a few rules…
  • Play along with ANY stamp you’d like – Winner is chosen at random to keep things fair, but if the winners project features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the voucher to $15
  • Feel free to combine our challenge with any other challenge(s)
  • Upload to your blog or other online gallery using keyword: SPD07 so we can easily find your work.
  • Add your name and link to your card or project in the InLinkz shown below

{TI} Make it Mini

This week our challenge at Tiddly Inks is to 'make it mini'! So fun! Mini cards are quick and easy and a little ensemble of mini's would make such a sweet gift for someone…check out all the designers. There are some inspiring projects!

I've used Sweet Treat Wryn. She is coloured with copics and a wee bit of pastels, and I added some glossy accents and loose rock candy glitter to her ice cream. Love the look of that :)
I used some ice cream DP (Echo Park) and a big two-tone satin bow. Viola! Quick and easy little card for any occasion! This card measures 4x4"

Check out the Challenge Blog to see what the other girls have been up to!
