Today is day 3 of the Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Blog-hop.  I am always in need of coffee themed gift card holders.  I am crafting away from home so I had limited supplies and I left some embellishments at home.  The image is from Art Impressions "Sloth-some Set" which I bought yesterday at Hobby Lobby.  The papers are Echo Park "summer Bliss.  The images are colored with Zig watercolor pens.

Hello.  It has been a while since I have entered any challenges.  This year has been crazy so far-2 breakins and 4 minor car accidents.  It seems as if every time my phone rings there is some kid of catastrophe.  This week has been calm.  So I decided to enter a few challenges.  Die cuttin Divas are having a "Favorite Color Combination" Challenge.  My favorite color for cards is pink and purple.  My favorite colors for clothes are black and mustard.  Fantabulous Cricut are having a "3 Dimensional" Challenge and Cut it Up Challenges are having a "Cat or Dog" Challenge..  I love to make dog projects-they are my favorite
My new favorite feature of Cricut Design Space is Print and Cut.  Recently I got the new Anna Griffin "Window Box Card" digital image set.  I used the base and the sign.  The puppies are from the "Pet Shop" cartridge.  I flattened all of the dog images and then print and cut them.  Then I played around with the images to fit them into the box.  The pink paper is Doodlebug and the pink and purple paper is Prima

Happy Friday.  Today I am sharing my second entry for the Art Impressions "Playing Dress Up" Challenge.  For my first entry I interpreted dress up to mean dressing in a costume.  For this challenge Dressing up mean getting fancy to go out on the town, I used the Got Style set.  The image is water colored with a wet brush and Marvy Markers.  The papers are Coco Style by Penny Black.

Art Impressions are having a Lets Play Dressup Challenge.  What I love about AI stamp sets is that you can mix and match them.  When I think of dressing up, I think of costumes.  I remembered I had a fun Halloween set called  Howl-oween.  I wanted to make a birthday card. The balloons are from the Birthday Wishes set.  The sentiment is from the Dare to be Fabulous set.

Art Impressions are having a “Winged Things” Challenge .  I needed a gift bag for a teenaged boy-the “His and Hers Flying High” set is perfect. I began by stamping the images on watercolor paper with Stayz On ink. Then I colored in the images with a wet brush and Marvy Markers. The tag die is MCT.
The ribbon is the “Rainbow Bundle” by DL.ART
