Oddball Art Stamps FB Challenge Reminder - AG!

Good afternoon all! Today I'm sharing my Oddball Art Stamps Design Team challenge reminder card for September. We have two challenges per month at Oddball, the first one is the Facebook Challenge, which is always Anything Goes in theme. The challenge takes place on Facebook (obviously) and runs from the 1st through the last day of the month. Just upload your Oddball Art Stamps cards to the album and viola! There is also a themed blog challenge that you can check out and play along in!

Oh...and did you know...if you need this, or any other image (you do), you can receive 10% off your order using coupon code DTJENNIFER10. Perk package!

My second project for our September Anything Goes Facebook Challenge features this gorgeous back to school image...Maddie and Friends #109. She was colored up with a whole big pile of Copic markers. ;)





I have used cardstock, spray, silk, and sparkle dot embellishments from Fun Stamper's Journey today. So much fun to make a "mess" with our awesome sprays and paints! If you haven't checked them out, you NEED to! Dies are from Gina Marie (fishtail banner), sequins from Doodlebug Designs and also some Tonic Nuvo dots in clear and black thrown on there.

Aloha Friday #79 - School's In!

Good morning! Aloha Friday is in full swing over at Kitty Bee Designs! Our current challenge is #79: School's In, and this is week #2. Sorry for the late post, I know it's Tuesday but we were gone on a long Labor Day weekend getaway so I'm finally getting caught up. So it's your turn now, get our your stamps and play along! Our challenge this week is sponsored by both Sami Stamps and A Random Fan! Double your pleasure...and prizes!


My card features I Love Books from Sami Stamps. I have two little boys who started school on the 1st, so this was a perfect image for me for this challenge...I just love the way these images are drawn! This fella with his nose in a book could be either of my boys at any time, so I had lot of inspiration to draw from!




I chose this dotty circle die today for two reasons - one, it's new from Gina Marie Designs, and I was so excited, and two...because the challenge this month over at Sami Stamps (#41) is to add dots - so PERFECT, I found DOTS to add without overpowering the elements, patterns in the paper I wanted to use, or this sweet, sweet boy!!

Other challenges:
Brown Sugar - #214 Back To School (1 of 2)
Crafty Calendar - September Back to School (1 of 1)

Creative Knockouts #157: Sparkle and Shine!

Good morning stampers! Two posts today, so scroll down for the AWESOME news and my FIRST CARD as a new DT member. You'll see my excitement if you check that post. ;)

As it is not just the first of the month but also Thursday, we have a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts where the challenge is....Sparkle and Shine! Oh gee, I hope I have SOMETHING shiny in this crafty stash.....HAHAHAHAHA! One of my favorite challenges as you know I love the glitter! ;)

This week's sponsor is Art by MiRan, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

Here is my project, featuring the beautiful Danica:




I really love this image, she's been on my wish list for awhile so I was thrilled to get a chance to use her! I colored her with Copics (of course). Added glitter to all of the stars, and used a glitter paper for the mat layer. The polariod-esque die here is from Fun Stampers Journey. Brads are from Basic Grey (waaaahhhh no more new BG for papercrafters....) and cardstock from PaperTrey. 

That's it for me today! Don't forget to swing over to the Creative Knockouts blog to link up your projects for your chance to win! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!


Oddball Art Stamps September FB Challenge: AG!

Good morning everyone, and Happy First Day of School!!! Hehe. Today I'm sharing my first "official" card as a member of the Oddball Art Stamps Design Team! Yayyyyyy! I'm so thrilled to be joining this team, have always been a fan of Lizzy's amazing images, and all the beautiful work by the designers she's had working with her. I can't believe I get to be one of them!! I hope my projects bring you some inspiration. 

Oh...and did you know...if you need this, or any other image (you do), you can receive 10% off your order using coupon code DTJENNIFER10. Perk package!

Onward to the project. We have two challenges per month at Oddball, the first one is the Facebook Challenge, which is always Anything Goes in theme. The challenge takes place on Facebook (obviously) and runs from the 1st through the last day of the month. Just upload your Oddball Art Stamps cards to the album and viola! There is also a blog challenge that you can check out and play along in!

My first project for our September Anything Goes Facebook Challenge features the SWEETEST little witch image...Wendy & Friends, #253. She was colored up with a whole big pile of Copic markers. ;)


I have used papers from Fun Stamper's Journey today, these were offered last fall in 6x6 size, LOVE them. Halloween is my favorite holiday so I'm always buying paper and embellishments for Halloween themed projects! Also tossed in a DCWV layer for extra sparkle. Dies are from Lil' Inker Designs (circle) and Gina Marie (fishtail banner). Embellies from Kaisercraft and Recollections.

Of course, I can't resist a good sketch challenge, today's uses the second Viva la Verve sketch for August. Fantastic as always! Thanks for the inspiration, Julee!
