Krafty Guest Contest Entry 02

Yep, it's a two-fer day! I've got one more to share. I made this card last night because I love this stamp and she's a Kraftin' Kimmie, so I decided to enter her into the contest too.  Paper is Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-Licious. Love that paper. :-)
So here's the card:

And here's her close up:

You can really see her sparkle on her wings, shoes, and the stem of the mushroom in this picture. The sparkle is all courtesy of Tim Holtz Distress Stickles in Rock Candy. I think that's my favorite glitter ever.  
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'm off to finish getting ready to have a garage sale next weekend! 
Have a scrappy weekend! Brit

Krafty Guest Contest Entry 01

Hi all! So how's the weather in your part of the world? It's flip flopping between being really rainy(we have thunderstorms in the forecast for 6 out of the next 7 days) or crazy muggy and hot. I miss the nice summer days at this point.  So here's a card I did this morning, the stamp is by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, paper is DCWV's Linen Closet. This card drove me crazy and took me FOREVER, but I love how it turned out! 
Here's the full card:
and a close up:

It was a ton of paper piecing, but she's cute and I was having fun with it even as it made me crazy. I'm entering her in the Krafty Guest Contest that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps has right now on the blog. :-) 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a scrappy weekend! Brit

Unity's Monthly Challenge

So I fell in love with Unity Stamps not too long ago, I had seen them everywhere, they're from my state, and then I got some for my very own... It's been a lot of buying them since then, lol. But, they do challenges every month, and you can enter up to 3 times(once each using each of the 3 inspiration pieces). I've gotten one done, based on the card sketch and am still hoping to get one done based on the color inspiration, but that's for tomorrow. 
Here's the card sketch for the month: 

And here's what I did with it: 

Honestly, I have way too much fun playing with patterned paper and can't ever use just one, so I've got a few. Plus I had to try out the chalkboard technique with white embossing powder, I got it a few months ago and just now opened it up... Oops, I should use stuff a little sooner than that! 
Alright, off to finish up washing my dishes. :-) 
Have a scrappy day!
