The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Stickers


Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed. ~Charles Schulz

Good morning!
Today is the start of a  new “Crash your Stash” challenge at The Outlawz Challenges sponsored by Drawn by Krista. You can check out her ETSY shop HERE.

Our item for this month is STICKERS

I have bits and pieces of stickers sheets left from purchases for specific projects or maybe I bought and never used. Either way, I just can't seem to get rid of them because I know that as soon as I do I will need them!

For my card I created a bit of a design using some dot stickers I had been given a while ago. I thought they looked fun and birthday-ish. The cute little image is called Happy Birthday Dino.


Supplies:
  • Sponsor image printed on Stampin Up Whisper White Cardstock
  • Black manga pen
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (base) and Stampin Up!
  • Diamond glaze from Close to My Heart
  • Ink from Stampin Up!
  • Liquid Glass from Close to My Heart
  • ProMarkers
  • Stencil from Heidi Swapp
  • Stickers from The Paper Studio
  • White gel Pen

SheepSki Designs: Flowers and/or Hearts


I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author unknown

Hi there!

Today starts a new monthly challenge on the SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog and this month our challenge theme is “Flowers and/or Hearts”.

For my card I am using an image that combines both: Floral Heart - image no 66. I really love using this image as it is one that looks great done in soft pastel colors or bright vivid colors.


Supplies
  • Image: Floral Heart - image no 66
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (base) and Stampin Up!
  • Die from Spellbinders
  • India Ink from Memories
  • Nuvo Drops
  • Pearls from Stampin Up!
  • ProMarkers
  • Sentiment from The Angel Company (closed)
  • Shimmer paper from Neenah

Now ... You have two ways to play along with SheepSki Designs!

BLOG ... Where you can use any hand colored image for a chance to win 3 images ... BUT, if you use a SheepSki Designs image and are the winner, you get an additional image choice

or

FACEBOOK ... Where you must use a SheepSki Designs Image for a chance to win 3 images

As a bonus, when you are done shopping in the STORE, use this code “skiandrea10” at checkout to receive a 10% discount off your purchase! So, come along and play one or both! Can't wait to see what you create!
