Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog - Frogs!

I am late in getting this up but maybe it will be a good thing that you see it while you still have a week to get your entry in for Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog. We were challenged to put a frog somewhere on our card in honor of our own Froggy!

I used a Pink Cat Studio set, this one is from one of the Billy sets, and you can get your Pink Cat Studio stamps from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I love all of their sets so look out because I'm going to be using a few more of them!

Billy is colored with copics and I used some Stickles and Glossy Accents on that cute little frog! The paper is from the Pets DCWV stack and the dots in the corner are from Colorbok and the ribbon from American Crafts.

Pretty simple but I can't resist a little boy and his frog! Reminds me so much of my nephews out catching tadpoles and little frogs in the back yard. Oh, gotta love those memories!

Make sure you stop by the blog and get your frog entry in! This is such a fun challenge to participate in!

Autumn Flower Soft!

Get ready, stampers, because Susana's Custom Art and Card Design is having a release coming up and it's going to be such a treat for us to all play with! Find all the details at Follow Your Heart!

Today Suzanne challenged us design team members for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design to create a card using an autumn theme and to try and add a bit of Flower Soft or Polar Soft to our cards. I went with the autumn theme and Autumn Flower Soft. I've loved this Sweetie, Autumn from the Hearts and Hugs 2 Collection from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design since I've seen it! I think she's just so adorable and I know she would be perfect for this challenge.

She's done with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and I cut her out with my nestabilities and used some gorgeous paper from My Mind's Eye. I added some rhinestones and Stickles and Glaze Pen to the flowers and her adorable scarf and hat. I love my Petaloo flowers and thought the button with Scrapper's floss would add a great touch.

Victoria Case illustrates some of the cutest faces! I love their eyes. They look so life like when you add a bit of color and some Glossy Accents. Just love them!

Thought I'd show you what the leaves look like up front with the Autumn Flower Soft around it. I love this mix and think it's just gorgeous!

I love corner punches and thought I'd let you see what the inside corner of this care looks like.

Make sure to stop by Susana's store blog to check out my other Design Team buddies creations. I am proud every Tuesday to present work for you with this wonderful and extremely talented group of ladies!

Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge - Stitches!

Over at Roses on Paper and Belles N' Whistles Challenge Blog, our ever talented Design Team Sister, Rosette, challenged us all to create a card from Roses on Paper using stitches of any kind! I started coming down with a flu bug yesterday so I went with the faux stitches on my sweet little Mimosa with Cupcakes, one the the new, totally sweet Bildmalarnas that Summer is now carrying. I think she's just too stinkin sweet and cute for words!

Here is a picture of this beauty before I added my faux stitching around the border. I colored her with copics and used some paper from my stash (I'm slowly getting rid of my scraps so I don't have to buy so much paper right now before I move!) and the card stock is Coredinations. I added some Glossy Accents and Stickles to her and highlighted her with my white opaque pen. I thought my MS lacy edger would be so pretty with her and give the card a girly feel. Some Prima Flowers, MS branches and spacers and pearls along with a few Dew Drops complete her.

Isn't this face just too adorable? You could just eat her up!

I hope you all will stop by our Roses on Paper/Belles N' Whistle Challenge Blog to see what my ever so talented sisters have worked up and participate in our stitching challenge. And look closely because there's some information about becoming a Guest Designer for Belles N' Whistles there so I'd hate for you to miss out on that opportunity! Great things could happen! We'd love to have you join us for a stint!

Card Ingredients:

Mimosa with Cupcakes by Bildmalarnas, Dew Drops, Stickles, Prima Flowers, Glossy Accents, Jelly Roller White Opaque pen, MS lacy edger and branch punch, spacers, BasicGrey Bling, ribbon
