The challenge at Lexi's Creations is 3-D. I chose to use the little fairy Butterscotch for this card. I layered her mat as well as herself and then popped her wing. The flower in the center is one I made from melting other synthetic flowers. This is my first use of Flower Soft and I had fun experimenting with it. It is also my first time painting with Shimmerz and Blingz. I painted her dress with Shimmerz and painted on her wings and the melted flower with Blingz. I added a little stickles on the border and the center of the background flowers as well as her shoes. I used a MS bprder punch and my nessties also.
I hope to see lots of you join us at Lexi's for this fun challenge!

This is my first attempt at intentionally making a monochromatic card. It was fun trying to decide which color to choose and then what to do with it after choosing! lol I chose my image to start with and decided she needed to be done in blues. This sweet stamp comes from the Pixie Cottage Hannah collection. I decided to also try to use my embossing folders that at one point I thought I could not live without but never seem to use! I used a little flower one for the bottom piece of white cardstock and and the twig one for the upper piece. I do wish they showed up better in the photo.....like they do in person! I wanted some bling to her so after composing the card, I went back and painted Blingz on different areas including all the flowers and lace. I colored the little dragonfly with Smooch and then added a little Blingz to him too.
Challenges I am entering are:
Creatalicious - sketch
Creative Inspirataions- Monochome
Cuttlebug Spot, Flourishes, and Cardvarks- embosssing
A Spoon Full Of Sugar and Quirky Crafts summer

The Treehouse- favorite tool. Not too sure how to show off my ATG so am going with my Cuttlebug. I used it to do the embossing folders as well as cut the stem swirls for the flower.
Challenge up Your Life- little critter and bling (thought my little dragonfly is a good little critter!)
One Stitch at a Time- celebrate something.....I am celebrating my first ever monochome card! lol
I thank each and everyone for stopping by my blog!

I fell in love with the little animal stamp from The Pixie Cottage and just had to have it. And of course I also love Magnolia and Hanglar stamps so this box-card is just some of my favorite things. lol You can see the toy animals in the box part. I had quite a time finding them. Used to see little packages of farm animals everywhere until I wanted some. lol Well I finally found some yesterday so could finish this up. I thought it would be a nice way to let a special little fellow know you were thinking of him.

Cupcake Craft - one for the boys
Forever Friends- favorite stamp
Incy Wincy Designs- one for the guys

This week at Lexi's the challenge is "something old". Well I decided to also do a little challenge my sil and I had.....to find a use for a toilet paper roll. I had stumbled over someones blog where they had used one for a pocket and I snagged that idea right up. lol Wished I would have saved the blog so I could thank them. The sleeve part is a cardboard roll from toilet paper. I found a piece of older paper in my scrap pile so decided to use it. I used two of Lexi's stamps.....Scruffles treasure and Scruffles map. I also used my little Edwin pirate from Magnolia. Other old things are the coins, charm and twine. I have all for years and am finally glad to find a use for them.
Challenges I am entering in are:
Digital Tuesday - this was so fun to find this challenge....it is to color with chalks. I got a bit excited as I always color with chalks and Dove pen. I have copics but cannot get the hang of using them. I do use them for skin but then shade with chalks or colored pencils or both. lol The two stamps from Lexi's are digital.
My Time to Craft xtra special I made this with a certain grandson in mind. (besides, what is more special than getting a roll out of toilet paper for your birthday! lol)

Sisterhood of Crafters- children

To join the blog hop, entrants will have to visit each of our blogs and collect a word from each. Then email Jan ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) the completed sentence once you have unscrambled the words! You will then be in the drawing for a special prize just for joining the hop.
We are so hoping that you will join us in creating something for our first challenge! I am just so excited about our new challenge blog!!! Our first challenge is "NEW". I made this gift box /card with a new stamp from CC Designs. I think she is so sweet. Another "new" for me is a technique I "borrowed" from Poppet's Place. This is also the first time I have used store bought stickers to decorate a card.
I lifted the ribbon a little to expose the box part of the card. Don't look too close as you will notice there is room for more candy. Seems that someone wanted a little snack as they scrapped and when it came time to add the candy to the box....well there just wasn't enough left to fill it up. I really think suppliers need to increase the amount they put in bags so scrappers do not run short! lol
I thank you so much for stopping by. Remember to join in on the hop and gather the words that will join together to make a sentence. Email the sentence to Jan so your name can join the others in the drawing for our blog hop prize.
