Time For Tea Designs - Weekly Inspiration

Happy weekend friends! I'm thankful that we've got one more day of freedom coming our way. To celebrate, how about some new weekly inspiration from Time For Tea Designs? Works for me! Don't forget that you can (and should) play along in our monthly challenge, for your chance to win free digis! Everyone loves free digis, am I right? The theme for this month's challenge is "Love". You can find all the details on the challenge and how to enter on the Time For Tea Community Page on FB.

My project today is showing off this handsome guy called Anthony Birthday (it's a full digital stamp set). The sentiment is part of the set as well; perfection! 

I've merged the filled image with this Retro Valentine backing paper from Paper Farms (via Creative Market) and splatter from Harper Finch, plus the Fresh speech bubble from Delicious Scraps, then printed my creation on Neenah white cardstock (80#). Then I hand-colored Anthony with Copic markers and added the extra hearts and brads to finish things off. He looks so handsome in his classy & cool black-on-black formal wear!

I hope you enjoyed my project today! If you've got a moment, head over to join our FB communityfollow us on Instagram, and don't forget to play along with our monthly challenges! Thanks for stopping by!

Imagine That Digistamp - February Challenge

Good morning my dear stamping friends! I'm here today to share some inspiration for Imagine That Digistamp's "First Thursday" Challenge. That's right, the challenge is now monthly, on the ITD blog, complete with prizes!! The challenges start the first Thursday of each month and end the last Tuesday before the new challenge begins. The theme is always Anything Goes. Click here for all the details. 

On the first and third Thursdays of each month, there will be a new inspiration post on the Creative Playground blog featuring the Design Team's projects. This is great to get your fix of ITDBK DT project postings! 

Today I've used elements from 3 different sets to create this bright birthday wish. The backing paper is from the Selfie Sandy digi set. The sweet elephant image is from Nellie's Party, and the sentiment is one of the Scallop Circle Sentiments - 41 images in black & white and color, scallops and no scallops - this is a MUST HAVE item! Dies from Gina Marie (Peekaboo Rectangle and Cross Stitched Square) and Kat Scrappiness (Neverending Circle dies) embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Colored with Copics. Pearls from Eyelet Outlet.

That's it for me today! Be sure to check out the Creative Playground for more ITDBK inspiration.

Time For Tea Designs - Announcement and February Challenge!

Happy Monday friends! Ha, I don't normally say those first two words in the same sentence :D HOWEVER, today is a Happy Monday, as I am finally able to announce that I've joined the faaaaaaab-ulous Design Team over at Time For Tea Designs. I've been a fan of Jo's artwork and images for many years...I believe the first card I ever made with one of her images was back in 20151 - crazy! Anyway...I saw they were having a DT call back in December and I decided to apply. Thanks for having me ladies; I can't wait to help inspire you!

My first project features this cutie pie called First Love. Coincidentally, the theme of our February challenge is "Love". You can find all the details on the challenge and how to enter on the Time For Tea Community Page on FB.

I've printed the First Love Phoebe digi stamp on Neenah white cardstock (80#) and colored her with Copic markers. The main image is die cut with Stitched Rectangle dies from Kat Scrappiness. I used Distress Stain Spray plus Black Soot Distress Oxide ink pad with this stencil from Echo Park to create the second background layer. The heart dies are from Sizzix, the Love word die is FSJ. Hand-doodled border on the main image panel.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! The other new DT ladies have all created an announcement project as well, so check out the post and swing by to say hi. Don't forget to join our FB community, follow us on Instagram, and play along in our monthly challenges. Can't pass up the chance for free stamps - am I right?? Thanks for stopping by!

Kitty Bee Designs - Aloha Friday #135: Birthday

Good morning! Aloha Friday is in full swing over at Kitty Bee Designs! Our current challenge is #135: Birthday; and this is our mid-inspiration week.

Today's card features an image from our sponsor, LeAnn's World 101. I went purple today, because I haven't used purple in AGES. Crazy, I know. Colored with Copics. Paper from The Angel Company (I know right? Hoarder...). Cardstock from SU and Neenah, dies from Gina Marie Designs, sentiment from Making Memories. Lace is from a factory my uncle used to work in in New Jersey that he gave to my mom about 25 years ago, LOL. She gave it to me when they moved to Florida. Seriously. I come by my hoardering legitimately.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to link up your school creations over at Aloha Friday, and I hope you have an AWESOME day!
