Love Tag {Scrapy Land #120}


Happy Wednesday!  A new Scrapy Land Challenge begins today.  We've switched things up a bit and now the random winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  The Top Three and Honorable Mention winners will still be chosen by the Designers.

Today's project uses the following dies:


Sue Wilson Designs: Finishing Touches-Delicate Daisies-Complete Petals
Sue Wilson Designs: Spring Foliage
Sizzix: Tim Holtz  Shadow Script #1
Taylored Expressions: Tag Stacklets 1 (any of these would work as well)

After die cutting from various patterned card stocks, assembly was quick and easy.  I added faux stitching around each of the layers and then adhered everything together.

Now it's your turn to join in on the fun.  You have until Sunday, Sept 1 to upload your Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells to our Scrapy Land Challenge #120.  Be sure to check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of the design team while you're there!

Moon Fairy {Lavinia World #7}


Hey everyone, a new Lavinia World Challenges begins today.  The theme is anything goes using stamped images (no digis) and the winner will receive a gift certificate to Lavinia World!

For my project today, I created this double rolled frame for my Moon Fairy image.




After stamping the image with Memento Ink, I colored the wings and the moon with Copic markers.  I used colored pencils to add color to her hair.  Once the wings were colored, Glossy Accents was added for shine.  The background was also created with Copic markers.

I really wanted the moon and stars to sparkle, so I added bright yellow glitter to these areas.  



For the backing mat, I used a dark blue card stock and stamped it with the Stars Miniature stamp and VersaMark ink. Once the VersaMark dries, it leaves a nice subtle watermark.





Now it's your turn to join us for the Lavinia World Challenges #7.  You have until August 26.  If you use Lavinia stamps in your project, your chance of winning the $15 gift certificate to Lavinia World doubles 😀.  Be sure to check out the awesome projects by the Design Team too - you won't be disappointed!

Pumpkin Girl {Scrapper's Delight Progressive Freebie}






Scrapper's Delights hosts a Progressive Freebie Challenge on Facebook each month.  This month you have a choice of two prop images.  Either the Brick Wall prop or the Fence prop: 




I chose the Fence prop and added one of the images from the Honey Pumpkin Pie set in front.






I colored the image with Copic markers and I added Clear embossing powder to the lenses on her glasses.  (It looks a little blurry in the photo, but in person, it looks shiny.  I wanted to try this instead of Glossy Accents for the lenses, but after experimenting, I think I prefer the Glossy Accents 😀.)  The sky was created using Pan Pastels.  I was going for a spooky, dusk-lit sky.

I used the Tonic Studios Ornate Frame Layering die set to die cut each of the elements of this card.  I also added Clear embossing powder to the decorative multi-colored mat.  This also gave it a really shiny look and brightened up the entire image.  (I didn't want it too spooky 😁.)

Head on over and join our Progressive Freebie Challenge and see how you can claim your freebie image.

Notes {Scrapy Land # 119}


Hey everyone, it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells. There are over 50 brands, so chances are good that you already have some of these brands in your stash.

We are switching things up a bit, beginning with this challenge.  There will be ONE winner and they will receive a
$15 Gift Certificate
to go shopping at Scrapy Land!!

Today I've got a quick and easy card to share with you.  It's perfect for those times when you need to create something fast.  And....you can use scraps.  Win/Win!!

All of the dies I've used are by Sue Wilson Designs:

Just A Note (currently out of stock, but any of these would also work)

Using the Ursa die, I die cut a strip of black cryogen paper.  This has embedded bits of metallic pieces in it.  On the photo, it looks like spots, but in person it's really shimmery.  Next I found two larger pieces of coordinating patterned cardstock and a strip of solid cardstock that coordinated to the two patterned pieces.

I adhered the two patterned pieces together and the solid strip to my card base.  I then added some thin ribbon to the solid strip.

I decided how far I wanted the black piece to overlay the two patterned pieces and then scored the black piece so that it would fold over behind the card.  Once I was happy with that, I adhered this on top of the piece created in the step above.


I die cut the bow and added light pink glitter to each piece before assembling the bow together.


I die cut the sentiment from a scrap of the black cryogen paper and a piece of bright pink card stock.  I adhered these on top of each other to create a shadow effect.   I then adhered the entire panel to my kraft card base.

Told you it was quick and easy 😁.

Now it's your turn to play along with us.  You have until Sunday, August 19 to join the Scrapy Land Challenge #119 for a chance to win a wonderful gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  We can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time......

Sweet Sentiment 1000 Member Party

Anime Raccoon Jane

Chibi Raccoon Jammie


Hey everyone, the Sweet Sentiment Facebook Group has hit 1000 members!  So that means there will be a party with presents (prizes) for you!  I have two projects to share with you today.   Jammie, the owner of  Sweet Sentiment and the Sweet Sentiment FB page, offers amazing coloring classes.  Not only do you get fantastic coloring videos and printable PDFs, you also get actual products to try out included in these kits. You can read all about her classes here!

Scrapper's Delights is a proud sponsor of Sweet Sentiment and has created an image that members of the Sweet Sentiment FB group can get for free using a code in the Scrapper's Delights store.  There will also be a coloring contest and a random winner will receive images from Scrapper's Delights.

You also have a second chance of winning prizes if you add your image to the Scrapper's Delights Challenge blog in our FB group.


For my two cards, I colored both images with Copic markers. After coloring Anime Raccoon Jane, I die cut the image using a deckle oval and then added glitter around the edges. The remaining die cuts are from Tonic Studios and I left them white so the image would be your focal point.  I did color the flowers with Copics and then added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers.  Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers gave them a nice shimmer.

For Chibi Raccoon Jammie, I enlarged the sentiment, which is part of the image file, on my computer before printing.  I layered digital paper behind the sentiment and added the image in front of the sentiment. After printing and coloring Chibi Raccoon Jammie, I added several actual paper layers, including an older die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Be sure to head on over to the Sweet Sentiment Facebook Group and join the fun!!

Birthday Girl {Scrapper's Delights VIP Deal - Virgo}


Hey everyone, it's the first Friday of the month and that means it's time for the Chibi New Release from Scrapper's Delights


I'm sharing the new VIP Chibi Virgo image and she's adorable!  


You can only get this image if you purchase the VIP Deal Bundle.


Not only do you receive all three of the Chibi New Release images, you also get this exclusive Chibi Virgo image and a ton of additional elements!  This Zodiac Bundle is definitely the better way to go (in my opinion 😀).

For today's project, I used a number of the elements that are included in the VIP Deal - the frame, the presents (which I copied and resized quite a few times), the main image, and the flowers in the banner.  I also added digital paper for my background.


After printing the image, I colored her with Copic markers and added a bit of glitter to her wand and the stars on her dress and shoes.  I also added some shimmer to the bows, the flower centers, and the frame outline using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.

After fussy cutting out the entire frame with the banners, I layered this on top of a die cut piece from Sue Wilson Designs (Background-Swirly Vine).  The glittery bow is also a die cut from Sue Wilson (Finishing Touches-3D Mosaic Itty Bitty Bow).

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team created on the Scrapper's Delights Inspiration Blog and join us on our Facebook Fan Page.

Dancing Fairies {Lavinia World #6}



Hey everyone, it's time for a new bi-weekly challenge from Lavinia World Challenges!  We have a new challenge every other Thursday and the theme is Anything Goes a long as your project includes a stamped image (no digis).  If you happen to use a Lavinia stamp in your project, your chances of winning are doubled!!  So head on over to the Lavinia World store and grab some Lavinia stamps if you don't already own some :-).

For my project today, I created a fun shadow box using the Three Dancing Fairies and the Christmas Tree Group stamps along with several Lawn Fawn dies (Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up, Shadow Box Park Add-On, Shadow Box Card Spring Add-On).  The puffy clouds are dies by Memory Box.





After die cutting the scalloped shadow box from patterned cardstock, I cut the remaining pieces from white cardstock and colored them with Distress Oxides and Copics (for the flowers).  



I stamped the fairies with VersaFine Clair (Twilight), colored the wings with Copics, and then fussy cut them out.  They are suspended ("flying") using thin strips of acetate.

The Christmas Tree Group image was stamped using Distress Oxides, heat set using Clear embossing powder, and then fussy cut out.  I adhered this image to the last "bridge" of the scalloped shadow box.  The Puffy Clouds were adhered directly to the back sky panel.

This was so fun to make!! I love being able to incorporate my Lavinia stamps with all my dies.  So don't think you have to make all these amazing backgrounds using inks and paints if you aren't comfortable with that.  Lavinia stamps can be incorporated into any style. 😌😀

Until next time.....

Anime Graffiti Jill



Happy Friday everyone!  It's time for the Anime New Release from Scrapper's Delights!  There are three new images plus two great background "Wall" options to choose from.


As always though, the best deal by far is when you purchase the Zodiac Bundle VIP Deal!  You get all of the new releases and you receive an exclusive zodiac image that you can only with this VIP Deal.  Plus tons of design elements to enhance your projects.






For my project today, I used Anime Graffiti Jill and the Wall 2 option (from the Zodiac bundle).  I colored the image with Copic markers and added some glitter to her pants.

The die cut embellishment (Memory Box-Savanah Border) was also enhanced with the same purple glitter as the pants.  A few Nuvo Sequins are the finishing touch.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team created on the Scrapper's Delights Inspiration Blog and join us on our Facebook Fan Page.  We'd love it if you played along in our Blog Challenge each month.  You can find out details about our Progressive Freebie Challenge on our FB page for even more chances to win free images.


Here is a Sneak Peek at the upcoming Chibi New Release on August 2.



I'll be back with something I created using the Zodiac VIP Deal - Virgo.  (She's adorable - not that I'm biased or anything, being a Virgo myself 😁.)


Until next time....
