Card Makin' Mamas #20

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, April 29, 2011 3 stamps of approval
Card Makin' Mamas sponsored by Meljen's Designs this week!

And, we're introducing 4 new members to our Design Team!  What amazing talent!  Be sure to check out Ciska, Kitty, Deb and Mariska!!  And, don't forget to visit Jess and Lizzie, too :)

Our challenge these 2 weeks is:

For Someone Special!

Pretty easy challenge this week - anything for anyone special - just remember that we are the CARD Makin' Mamas, so your project really does NEED to be a CARD!  

I've designed a fun Get Well card for our challenge, using one of Meljen's Designs newer images, Doctor Bear.  The sentiment is a little hard to make out in the photo, so it says "I listen to the voices in my stethoscope"  Hoping that a silly sentiment brings a smile to a loved one!


An easy and fun challenge with a chance to win 4 free Meljen's images, what more incentive do you need to make a card this week?  You've got 2 full weeks to get an entry in, so have some fun!  I'm excited to see what you create!

I'd also love to enter this card into the following challenges

The Ribbon Girl - Red, White and Blue
Fab 'n' Funky - Red, White and Blue
Totally Gorjuss - 1, 2, 3 (1 image, 2 oval die cuts and 3 bling)

Hugs,

Meljen's Challenge #55 - Masculine

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, April 21, 2011 9 stamps of approval
There's a new challenge and an amazing new release up on the Meljen's Challenge Blog today!


I had such a great time making this card!  The very first time I saw this little "Army Bear" image, I knew I wanted to give him a few supporting soldiers!  I also knew right away that I wanted to use the Desert Camo colors for them!  These guys remind me of 2 cute teddy bears that my Dad got me years ago - I have one in standard camo and one in Desert camo.

Our challenge at Meljen's this week is to make a masculine card, masculine colors, masculine theme - and this should work perfectly with all 5 of the new release images available today:


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I've inspired you to create a masculine card today!

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge at:
Paper Sundaes - Texture
Craft Us Crazy - Fuzzy Animals
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Lots of Layers
Ribbon Girl - Colors - Red, White and Blue
Thanks to all the challenge blogs for always providing fun challenge and inspiring themes!

Have Fun!

Two is better than one at Stamptacular Sunday this week!!

We've got 2 amazing sponsors and many of us on the Design Team have created 2 cards to share with you!!

Our first sponsor is:

with an awesome prize of
Mummy Edwin and Tilda with Jolly Roger MINIs

Our challenge is also MAGNOLIA-liciousIn honor of our month-long April Sponsor, MAGNOLIA-licous, for this weeks challenge you will create a card or project with your favorite MAGNOLIA stamp(s)! There are hundreds to choose from so the possibilities are endless!

My card uses Ladybug Tilda (I know, again, I only have a limited selection of stamped images that have been sent by friends and I just love this one!)
I made this card last-minute and was very, very tired at the time... I didn't notice until I was adding the watermark to my photo that I used a LADYBUG image and CHERRY paper... oh well, right?  Cute image, awesome paper and fun rhinestones - it's all good!

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
 If The Shoe Fits: Recipe - 2 Die Cuts (image & mat), embossing (image and mat are embossed), clear bling (clear rhinestones)
Copic Creations: Fave Paper (my fave paper is the only I've ever used, and it's basic generic Georgia Pacific paper from Wallyworld.... I'd love to try some other papers, but for now, this is what I have)


Our second sponsor is the amazing ELISABETH BELL DIGIS!!

They are offering up a prize of 2 free digi images to our random winner!

Elisabeth Bell has kindly provided the Design Team with images to use and I chose to use "Little Best Friends".  My best friend LOVES the beach, so I was thinking of her while I made this card!  We've known each other for MANY years, but unfortunately, not when we were this young.

  
Fun challenge, great sponsors and awesome prizes - what more do you need to enter this week?  I look forward to seeing your creations!  Come join the fun at Stamptacular!

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at:
 Drunken Stampers: Technology Sucks (no electricity used here, unless you count the lights in my craftroom!)
Cute Card Thursday: Weather Inspired - isnpired by warm, sunny beach weather!


Hugs!
Dee

Time to play along with the Card Makin' Mamas again!

This week we are challenging you to

EMBELLISH IT!

Show us your embellies!!

Our sponsor is Wink Wink Ink and they have kindly provided the DT with some gorgeous images to play with!  

Here is a simple but fun card that I've made using their Chickadee Border image


As soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted to do something special with their little heart shaped tummies!  Glad I picked up a bunch of heart shaped brads at the CKC show this past weekend!  They fit perfectly and look so cute!

Come play along with us this week, we'd love to see how you use your embellishments!
