Pink ,Pink & Yep more Pink

Today at High Hopes Challenges we have gone crazy for pink ! Our theme is ,yep you guessed it...PINK
I hope you love the color,cause we wanna see lots of it ! Oh but don't forget to use a High Hopes image. First my apologies for the bad picture,just couldn't get a good one.My card I used Laurie Furnell's image "Annie with her kitty". As you can see I got carried away with the pink on my image and colored her kitty pink.

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye.The flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts.The cute little gems are from Prima.Loving these...probably why I have all of them.LOL.But you know me and bling,gotta have it ! ! Those cute little words are from Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type alphabet stickers.The sentiment was actually all together ,I just cut it up.

So I hope you can get a little pink crazy and join us ! !

Queen of Hearts

OK here's my attempt at a book card.It's a little time consuming but I think (still thinking) the end result is ok.I used the image from Saturated Canary called Queen of Hearts.She's just adorable.My papers are from Echo Park . Love this line....

A little bit of details on embellishments...The hinges are Tim Holtz grungeboard, flowers assorted from Wild Orchid ,the hearts are from Quickutz die cut out of corrugated cardboard. I covered them with fire brick distress stain.I believe that cute little key is from Prima(I think lol) The feather I found in the dollar store. 
inside of book card...some yummy chocolates..and on the other side is a tag with a sentiment from Stampendous. The inside I used a Martha Stewart border punch.

A close up hinges wrapping around...I used distress stain and rock candy on it.

I am entering the following challenges:
-Anything Goes: To the one I love
-Papertake Weekly :Highlighting (my image has been colored with smooch)
Saturated Canary Challenges:Use dies or punches(yep used both)
Simon Says Stamp:Anything Goes

Happy Winter Wishes

Well I hope all your holiday wishes came true. After having a couple of weeks of not being in my craft room,it's time to put my nose back to the grind. It's a new Year and a new challenge.

With that comes Something Old and Something New...that is our challenge this week at Scrap Creations
Now for my OLD I have used my High Hopes Stamp ,he's an oldie but a goodie.For my NEW I used the collection from Pink Paislee SNOW DAY.
I mounted my snowman onto a Maya Road Chipboard Doily.I first inked it with Rangers Snow cap paint then added Rock Candy.Once that was dry I used Tumbled Glass distress ink on it.For me that was a new technique,may be old for others.LOL.  

I also used Rangers Snow Cap Paint along the edges of my papers.It's not a great pic but hopefully you can see well enough.The ribbon is from my OLD stash and the snowflake ribbon is from my new stash.

So as I said in the beginning A new year comes with change.At Scrap Creations we say goodbye to old and hello to new. We have 2 DT members leaving us,we say farewell to Jackie and Frances.We wish them well and thank them for all their great works of art!!You will be missed!

 We also would like to welcome all those who wish to join our team .We have a DT Call opening on Wednesday.Look here for more details...good luck!!
