The Corrosive Challenge #230 - Perfectly Purple


Good morning!  Welcome to the latest Corrosive Challenge!  Rebecca is our hostess this time around and in honor of my upcoming birthday she choose "Perfectly Purple" as our theme!  Our sponsor this fortnight is the ever fabulous Art by Miran!  You can find her shop HERE on Etsy.  She not only shared a few images with the design team for our projects but is also offering up a prize of 3 digis of choice to our winner!




I have used the image Celebrating Your Day to create a birthday card in my favorite color!  She is colored with Copics and cut using Labels Fourteen Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I also used several of my La-La-Land Crafts dies: Lattice Doily Border, Lattice Border, Hot Air Balloon, Birthday Flag, and Scalloped Banner. I added lots of shabby chic elegance with a paper doily, Shabby Blue Fran-Tage, lace, cheesecloth, flowers, a bling swirl, and a punched butterfly (Martha Stewart).




Be sure to head over to the challenge blog to see the other purple pretties from the team!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!  Mine started off with a yard sale (man, those things are a lot of work!) and I plan to end it with some pool time and more crafting!

Thanks for stopping by!

KennyK's Krafty Krew Challenge #200 - Banner Day


Hello!  Ready for some fabulous and exciting news?  Drum roll please... welcome to KennyK's new release AND our 200th challenge!  Two hundred!!!  Can you believe it?!?!  This is certainly cause for celebration so we have upped the prize factor and the fun!  

As always our challenge for KennyK's Krafty Krew is Anything Goes with a twist!  The twist is optional, but remember you MUST use a KennyK digi or clear stamp to enter.  And the theme for this momentous occasion?!

Banner Day 

Make or use a banner or bunting on your project.

In addition to our usual prizes, we have FIVE fabulous gift certificates to give away!

$25 from our very own Dawn Lewis for Copic markers 
$25 from Dies To Die For for dies

$25 from Stampin' Up for paper and/or ink
$25 from KennyKdownloads for digis
 $50 from KennyK Clear Stamps for clear stamps

Excited yet?!?!  We are!  Not only do we have all these fabulous prizes to share with you, but we also have one new release image!  He's called Valet and he fits in perfectly with a few others from our KennyK collection.  We affectionately refer to them as "The Estate".

I have used Socialite for my card.  I started with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch and went from there.  The image is colored with Copic and fussy cut.  I popped her up on foam squares for dimension.  I didn't add as much as usual to this one.  I went with a classier, more sophisticated look this time.  I added flowers, a Tim Holtz memo pin holding a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker, a vintage looking medallion and jewel from my stash, antique looking lace with pearls, and a few dies.  Used here are Flag Banner (La-La-Land Crafts), the pennant flag from a castle (Magnolia Doo-hickeys), and feather (Hot Off The Press).

  




You simply must visit the blog to see what our guest desingers and krew have created!  And don't forget to color up a KennyK image to play along for a chance at winning one of those amazing prizes!  You have until August 13th to join the fun!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

So, about my creation...  This is Moving Day!  Isn't she sweet?  She's perfect for anyone who is going off to college in the Fall or is moving into a new house or apartment.  I colored her with Copics and fussy cut her.  I then used foam squares to pop her up on my card.  I really wanted to showcase this fabulous paper by DCWV so I left the face of the card pretty plain (well, for me anyway) and added most of my embellishments off to the side and at the top.  Dies include a couple from La-La-Land Crafts: Scallop Border, Scalloped Banner, and Lattice Doily Border.  The cityscape is from My Favorite Things.  I also used a Classic Long Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and a Martha Stewart Border punch.  Flowers, pearls, and a sentiment from Stampin' Up set @SoSocial complete my project.



Now head off to Carisa's blog to see her drool-worthy creation!  You will not be disappointed!  Remember to leave comments as you go to be eligible for the awesome prize from Krista's shop!

A Birthday Shout Out


Hello!  I'm loving being a guest designer for Saturated Canary!  I can't get enough of coloring up these cuties so I'm sharing yet another of my SC creations with you today.  My son's father celebrated a birthday this week and Kayne asked me to make his daddy a card.  I was happy to oblige my sweet boy!

I colored up Dad (2014 Boy) and cut him using Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I thought on a masculine card I'd use a few less dies, but it didn't really work out that way!  Featured here are several La-La-Land Crafts dies, including two new ones!  I've used Open Heart Doily Border, Hot Air Balloon, Birthday Flag, Steampunk Border, and Flag Banner.  Also from Spellbinders was the Cogs Nestabilities that matted my image.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Boy Crazy.  I added a few accents including buttons, screw brads, Tim Holtz Gears, and a Jolee's Boutique clock sticker from my stash.  





This just shouts birthday fun to me!  Which reminds me...  Mine isn't that far off!

Thanks for stopping by and check back soon for more of my creations!  Have an amazing week!

90s Coffee


Hi there!  Have I told you how excited I am to be one of the Guest Designers for Saturated Canary for the next three months?!?!  I could shout it from the roof tops, that's how happy I am!  This is "check it off the bucket list" cool!  And seeing it on the Saturated Canary blog (pop over to check out my crafty friends and fellow GDT lovelies Lucy, Michelle, and Lina) is a dream come true!  You'll see us all on the DT inspiration blog HERE.    

This is one of Krista's newest digis from her Fashion Decades release (shop HERE): 90s Fashion Decade.  All I could think of was the dawn of the coffeehouse, Starbucks, Seattle, and grunge!  lol  So here she is!

The image is colored with Copics and cut using the Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I went die heavy again.  And how could I resist what with my new order of La-La-Land Craft dies arriving AS I was working on it!  (Thanks to Irina for the fabulous sale and to Mom & Dad for the early birthday present!)  One of the new ones I received is the Lamp Post.  I also used the Hot Air Balloon, Open Hearts Doily Border, and Lattice Border.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Inkadinkado and is cut using Labels Twenty-One Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  Also used were a coffee cup die from Impression Obsession, a zipper from Marianne Craftables, Picture Wheel by Tim Holtz (Sizzix), and a small heart from Whimsy Stamps.  I sprinkle a little Shabby White Fran-tage on the balloon and lamp post and stamped the image panel with a coffee ring stain stamp (also from Inkadinkado) in Antique Linen.  A couple of pins, a few flowers, some rhinestones, and a Tim Holtz Compass Coin and Game Spinner combo round out my creation.  






Look for more Saturated Canary projects coming your way soon!  There is a fabulous sale going on now in Krista's shop through 11pm (EST) on Sunday.  Use HAPPYWEEKEND to get $4 off any order of $12 or more.  Plus everyone who orders with the discount will get a fab new fairy digi from Krista's upcoming release!  Go forth and shop!  I bought a few myself!

(And true to form I am a tad late with post going live, but I have a good excuse!  I was at the drive-in with Kayne watching Minions and Inside Out, creating those great childhood Summertime memories!)

Child of the 80s


Hello!  Everyone has seen Krista's coloring contest going on over at the Saturated Canary blog, right?!?!  If not, stop what you are doing and run, don't walk, to the SC shop and pick up one, two, or all three of Krista's new Fashion Decades sets!  They are value priced for the duration of the contest at only $4 each!  That's like getting one of the images in each set for free!  To play along all you have to do is link a project featuring a personally colored version of one of these lovelies and share on social media!  You have until July 21st to join in for the $20 gift vouchers that are up for grabs!

As a GDT member (*squeals with delight*), Krista very generously gifted these to us and of course I couldn't resist coloring up 80s Fashion Decade first!  Most anyone who knows me knows how much I love the 80s!  It contains so many fond memories for me...  I'm totally a child (and teenager) of the 80s!  Lol  Because of this, even still as an adult, I have a HUGE love for all things 80s!  I think my hair, well my bangs anyway, may have been just about as big!  My image is colored with Copics and cut using Long Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  In my new favorite style, I heaped on loads of fun dies and embellies!  I was "totally stoked" to use two My Favorite Things Die-namic that were perfect for the 80s - Cassette Tape and Geek is Chic Glasses!  Also featured are Heart Doily, Open Hearts Doily Border, and Wings set (La-La-Land Crafts) and Virtuoso Music (Memory Box).  The coordinating stamp set from MFT for the cassette is called Playlist.  I added some black lace (à la Madonna) and a few flowers.  The sentiment sticker is from Me & My Big Ideas and the "80s" is done in black chipboard glitter stickers.  And what 80s creation would be complete without some bright neon colors?!  




I'm hoping to have time to create with some of the other decades as well!  Ready to start your project?  Take your pick: 40s and 50s, 60s and 70s, & 80s and 90s!  Which one is YOUR favorite decade?

Thanks for popping in!  I appreciate the visit!  Hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

So Sweet!


Just popping in with some SUPER exciting news!  I have been selected as a guest design team member for Saturated Canary!!!  This is a dream come true!  The elite of the crafting world love and adore SC and the competition is formidable so I am elated to have been asked on board for this 3 month stint (July-September)!

In between doing my happy dance and pinching myself, I was able to create this card featuring Saturated Canary's Baker for my co-worker's birthday.  She is a total sweetheart who bakes for the office TWICE a week every week so she deserved something handmade with love herself!

Baker is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I used foam squares to give her dimension on top of the Picot Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I am die happy lately and added a few La-La-Land Crafts one (Lattice Doily Border, Lattice Border, Heart Doily, Heart Banner, and Filigree Crown) as well as the "happy birthday" Die-namics sentiment (My Favorite Things).  For embellishments, I added a colorful array of flowers with a red and white striped paper straw plus a couple of buttons and a sticker whisk.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Collectable: Notable.




I have been collecting Saturated Canary images for almost six years and this is a dream come true!  What a sweet gig!  I can't wait to get started!
