Stamptacular Photo Inspiration

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, February 26, 2012 0 stamps of approval
We've got a beautiful photo to inspire you this week from Stamptacular Sunday!

I've had this stamp for I don't know how long.. it's been sitting in one of my shadow boxes on the wall of my craft room and I barely ever use it!  Our photo inspired me to dust it off and ink it up!


Pretty, isn't it?

Come play along - we've got a prize from Marianne Design for you this week!

See you soon!

Meljen's Buttons

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, February 23, 2012 2 stamps of approval
I've been a day behind all week!  I was typing up the challenge post for Meljen's Designs and realized that I hadn't made a card myself yet!  LOL!  So, I run downstairs and put together this fun birthday card.  I never seem to have enough birthday cards and no matter how hard I try to get ahead of the game, I still seem to never have one when I need one!  So, here's another one to add to my stash, and I don't think it will be hanging around too long!

Our theme at Meljen's Designs this week is BUTTONS!


This is Whacky Hat Cat - available only through the Meljen's Designs shop

We've got 3 prizes to give away every week at Meljen's Designs, so come play along - just remember to use a Meljen's image!

Have fun and Happy Stamping!

Charming Canary Love

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, February 19, 2012 5 stamps of approval
At Stamptacular Sunday, our new challenge for you is so CHARMing!

Create a card or project that has a charm somewhere in sight! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!

I was so excited to color this new Saturated Canary image as soon as I received it and I thought this beautiful birdcage paper was just perfect for it!  I've had the little birdhouse charm for so long and I thought it would match wonderfully as well!  I'm really happy with this card!


We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps this week, so be sure to come play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize of 7 FREE DIGIS!  WoW!

Little Goth Girl & Party Invitations

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, February 18, 2012 0 stamps of approval

I needed to make a very quick birthday card for a friend's daughter yesterday.  Not that I didn't have advance notice of her birthday party, but because I was SO busy making the 40 invitations for the birthday party, I kind of forgot about her actual card!


She had a Monster High themed party, so I chose to use the Little Goth Girl and Skully image from Meljen's Designs.  Because my daughter was giving this card, she chose the ribbon and the ribbon slide.

The little girl who received this card is a big fan of my work :) and she just loved this card!  She also loved the invitations that I made for her party


Here are the cards in progress... I had to hand colo the pink strips, because I couldn't find the right paper!  Lots of cutting and coloring, but they were a big hit!

Card Makin' Mamas Birthday Challenge

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, February 17, 2012 0 stamps of approval
We're celebrating Birthdays at Card Makin' Mamas this week!

Our wonderful sponsor - our very own Lizzie - has provided us with some adorable images and you can win them, too!!

So simple, just create a birthday card!

I've used Lizzie's Make A Wish Candles and sentiment.  I printed the sentiment on top of some Echo Park digital paper, one of the things I LOVE about Lizzie's designs is the bold lines, making it so nice to print on patterned paper - the sentiment doesn't get lost among all the dots!


Have Fun and I hope you get a chance to play in our challenge!

Hugs,
Dee

Our Stamptacular Sunday challenge this week is

Pearls and Lace

Since we're sponsored by Meljen's Designs, I obviously wanted to use one of Melissa's fabulous images, and I ended up using two of them!

There are some days when I think that I'm just in too weird of a mood to be in my craft room... this was one of those day!  LOL!


Also, on rare occasions, I sell a card the same day I make it!  This one is already sold and I know that my friends Hubby will get a kick out of it on Valentine's Day!  :)

Come play along with us for a chance to win 4 images from Meljen's Designs OR a $10 Gift Certificate from Dude Time Doodles!  Just use Pearls and Lace and you're in it to win it!  Good Luck and Have Fun!!

Stamptacular Sunday #150

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, February 05, 2012 0 stamps of approval
This weeks challenge at Stamptacular Sunday is a Valentine Color challenge!

I've gone "old school" and not used digi images this week!  Amazing, right?  I know!  These stamps are all from Kraftin' Kimmie, but I couldn't find them on the website, so maybe they're retired?

Colored with Copics, layered on Echo Park paper, some iRock hearts and a Spellbinders die.

Here are the colors we would like to see this week:


We are sponsored by DELICIOUS DOODLES with a prize of 4 free digis to our random winner!

Have fun!
Hugs,
Dee
