PIP Challenge 1938

Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Challenge 1938

This week's sponsor is Lawn Fawn.
Be sure to pop over and check out all the 
fabulous products they have! Get everything you
need in one place to create your next project!
 Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Yes, usually I do a pretty simple card, but
as complex as this looks it was very easy
when I used Lawn Fawn products. First,
I stamped several pumpkins, the cute
scarecrow and the crows on white cardstock.
I stamped the scarecrow two more times
on two different pattern papers so I could
paper piece the pants, hat band and shirt. 
I colored all my images with Copic markers. 
die cut the leaves, hills, grass, and the 
tree backdrop. I did fussy cut out all the 
other images...probably the most time
consuming but I don't mind cutting. 
Then I began the fun part of putting the
card together. I used mounting tape to 
give depth and dimension to the card. 
I cut the Many Thanks sentiment to put
it in two lines. Best part of clear stamps
is the ability to cut them and still be 
able to use them as they were meant to 
be used. I added some tiny buttons, and
no, I didn't thread them, to the overalls.

PIP Challenge 1937

Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Challenge 1937

This week's sponsor is 
Polkadoodles
Be sure to pop over and see all the 
fabulous digis, stamps and 
supplies that they have!  
Go check them out now!
Here's my project!
This week I made a bookmark. 
The Polkadoodles' image was made 
for just that, in my mind.
I colored the cutie using my Copic markers.
Once colored I used my Spectrum Noir black
Sparkle Pen! It really popped the image. 
Then I cut it out. Since alcohol markers 
tend to bleed through I traced the 
the bookmark onto another piece of 
cardstock and cut it out. I then glued it to 
the back of my original image and stamped
my sentiment (MFT) and outlined it using
the sparkle pen again.
I ran the bookmark through my laminate
machine...first time I used this one...
I need practice, I guess, since it crinkled
in two places. UGH! Anyway, I punched 
a hole and added twine threads to finish. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

I love this image from Mo Manning! 
I think it reminds me of me when I'm in

Anyway, this was basically another colored

Guess my cards are always pretty basic.

PIP Challenge 1935

Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Challenge 1935

I hope everyone one is enjoying their
Labor Day holiday. I was able to spend
my weekend with my little grandbaby, 
LJ. So nice having both my daughters
and LJ's daddy, Joe, here. Good times!!
Anywaaaaay...
This week's sponsor is Gerda Steiner, where 
you can find some of the cutest digis for 
just about anything to meet your creative 
desires. They are kindly offering $15 gift code 
for this week's winner! Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Sometimes the right background paper
can totally complete a card. I colored this
sweet little image, from Gerda Steiner, 
using Copic markers. I fussy cut it out and
used mounting tape to raise it up on that
great background paper. I stamped the tiny
sentiment on the sign and that was the 
finishing touch to my card, other than
creating the layers. I so love EASY!

Here's my card!
Such a cute image from StarStampz. I
used Copics to color it. I added some 
white dots to the flower. The sentiment
is an old wooden stamp that seemed
like a perfect touch for the card. I added
some leaf charms and flower. Easy Peasy.

Since today is my 47th anniversary

you'd think I'd have a card made for
my hubby, BUT...nope...lol
Here's my card!
Another fun image from Bugaboo that 
can be used for many different types

I really enjoyed creating this card and

I usually stink at following directions. 
I was delighted to find that The Cutting
Cafe has a great video to follow along and
it obviously helped. I did do some of my
own short cuts but the video was a HUGE
help. You can go to the video HERE
