So glad to have Sparkle n Sprinkle as our sponsor this week! Be sure to check out their fabulous variety of products available! Such a great selection of goodies!

Here's my card!
Sparkle n Sprinkle have such adorable images, whether you like cutesie or lovely, they have you covered! I printed the jar and cut out the center. I then attached some acetate to create the finished jar. I colored everything with Copics and fussy cut the funny little bug. If only the bugs we really do catch were that cute. lol. I attached the bug, using mounting tape, to a piece of white cardstock. I added double layer mounting tape to the jar and attached it over the bug on the white paper. Then I cut it out and glued it to an embossed piece of white. Then I completed the rest of my layers. I made a little banner from the sentiment and glued it to the jar.

So glad to have Bugaboo as our sponsor this week!
They always have such fun images to play with!! 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
The darling image was colored using Copic markers and the water was colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Such a lovely shimmer those pens make. A white pen was used to add a little highlighting to the water.
 
Some coordinating background paper was picked and a bit of twine around the image then assembled. The tiny sentiment is from FSJ, as were the little dot embellishments!

Crafter's Companion Addiction

Ah, yes, I do LOVE Crafter's Companion products and I KNOW you will too. This is a card made using CC products. 
This was SO EASY to create and it looks like a million bucks!  The paper really took this card to the next level. I added a few, ink edged, die cut poinsettias and a die cut sentiment on a piece of embossed cardstock. I even used my Spectrum Noir markers to color my clear rhinestones to match. Such fun!
 
These are the products used. Look for them at Crafter's Companion or HSN.

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
We sure do love our amazing sponsors. 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Newton's Nook's stamps always make me happy! They have wonderful die cuts too, although I did fussy cut out these images for my card today. I used my Copics to color. Then, after deciding what background cardstock to use I sorted through my die cuts. I think they came from multiple suppliers. lol I paper pieced the little banner and decided on a layout for my card. I raised the bunny and bear for dimension. To complete the card I stamped the sentiment. 
Ta Daaaaaa!

So glad to have Polkadoodles as our sponsor this week!
We sure to love our amazing sponsors. 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
This was such a cute image. So very different and certainly fun to get creative with. I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color my image, except for the feather. I used Spectrum Noir markers for that. The background was created with glossy cardstock and alcohol inks, spritzed with blending solution and then I took a Gold Leafing pen to get the gold shimmers. I mounted it on Gold Luxury Mirrored cardstock from Crafter's Companion. The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion. The sentiment was perfect for this sweet image from Polkadoodles! I added a couple of blings for some added dimension.

Just love "playing" with my Crafter's Companion supplies! They have all you need! This card is so pretty. When you have the right papers and die cuts you can't go wrong.

I can't get enough of Crafter's Companion and they just keep bringing me more and more things to inspire me to creativity! Hope you have tried some of their remarkable products. ESPECIALLY the Gemini machines! Can't die cut without mine anymore! lol!! Here's a card I made.
I stamped the flowers with a watermark pad and white embossed it on black. I used a ribbon border for the top of the black piece then fussy cut around the flower edges. I colored the flowers with the fabulous Spectrum Noir Metallic Markers. What a shimmer they create. Wish my camera could have picked it up better, but you will have to take my word for it! It's lovely! I die cut the word Believe a few times and ran some white ribbon through the ribbon border, then put my card together. Here are the products I used! You can find some of them at Crafter's Companion or HSN on Aug. 15.

So glad to have Digital Delights as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I always have fun with Digital Delights images and 
this one was no exception. My brother has a love for
cameras and photography, sooooo, I guess this will
be his birthday card come FEBRUARY! I wonder if
I'll be able to remember where I put this card until 
then. LOL. It was a simple card. Image was colored
with Copic markers. I added some white dots for his
freckles and a bit of crystal lacquer on the camera 
lens and view finder.
I used a camera stamp from Fun Stampers Journey
to make the background. I edged the card and 
background piece with sponged ink. Then I stamped 
the sentiment and cut out my image. I added the 
cute little guy to my card using pop dots to raise 
him up for some added dimension. Easy Peasy.

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Newton's Nook stamps are some of my absolute FAVES
and this adorable set was perfect for the Summer Days theme!! I used a wave stencil from NN to make my water. I used an applicator to apply Crafter's Companion NEW inks, two shades of blues, then some yellow for my bright sky. I stamped my images and colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I used an exacto knife to cut a slit in my "water" so I could place my little tuber kitty there. I torn a piece of brown cardstock to make some "sand" for the sandcastle cat. I raised up the pail with mounting tape for a small touch of dimension.
