SPT16

Here we are at week 16 of SoftPencil Tuesdays. WOW! Time sure flies when you're having fun! LOL

This week I am featuring Sunny once again. This time Sunny is in a stack od clay pots. I tried to make these look as close to terra cotta as possible with a little verde gris. I kept Sunny light. I've adde some stickers and this DSP is from a DCWV paper stack. Very glittery. Hope you'll try coloring Sunny this week. Afterall it is summer and we get plenty SUN in the summer!

You can purchase Sunny as a digital image in SoftPencil Studios Shop. Check out the DT creations too!

SSS169 and CCCB119

This is a twofer! Haven't mentioned one of those in a L O N G time! What that means is, this card was created with 2 totally different challenges in mind. I used the sketch at Sweet N Sassy and the theme from City Crafter Challenge Blog. The stamps are from Glitz & Simon Says Stamps. The bling-y flower is from Prima. Distress Inks are from Tim Holtz. These two challenges were sooo much fun to play around with. Hope you enjoy my creation.

CR84FN59

CR84FN #59 - Fabulous color combo! Brown, Tan and Coral. I love Calypso Coral!!! For my card I have used some discontinued stamps from Stampin' Up! It's one that I have up for sale HERE. I stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Tangerine Tango as I did not have any Calypso Coral ep. This card is very CAS.

CASEStudy101

I was truly inspired by Kristi's CASE Study Challenge this week. Her card was lovely and let's face it, I'm a sucker for birds! So I jumped at the chance to CASE her card. It was fun. I am not sure I got what I was shooting for but it did turn out nicely. I love this little birdie from SU's Nature Walk set. The stamped flowers are from SU's Creative Elements set. If you like birds and garner a little inspiration from my card or Kristi's card then pop on over to CASE Study #101 and get to creating.

CDT202

ColorThrowDown #202 - Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, and Bermuda Bay.

For my card I stamped the swirl from SU Hostess Set Precious Butterflies in Rich Razzleberry onto Pool Party cs. Then I stamped randomly the 3 butterflies from the same SU set in Bermuda Bay. Then I cut my 3 3/4" by 5" cs into four panels. I adhered them to my Very Vanilla cs. Then I stamped the tea cup from the SU stamp set called Tea Shoppe onto Pool Party cs with Bermuda Bay in and head embossed with clear embossing powder. I craft cut the tea cup. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Rich Razzleberry onto Very Vanilla cs. I used the SU scalloped oval punch and punch the Very Vanilla cs. Then I used the SU Oval punch and punched 2 pieces of cs for mattes behind my sentiment. I added a piece of vintage lace and some of the SU large pearls. Mounted the entire piece onto a blank of Rich Razzleberry cs.

If you haven't played along at the Color Throw Down, you might want to this week. They REALLY know how to challenge us!

SPT15

SoftPencil Tuesday Week #15. This week we are featuring some new digitals of Sunny. I chose Sunny on a Cupcake for my card. Sunny's so cute and very versatile as far as color goes. I chose to leave her white and just color in the pinks of her ears. The image was colored with SU! markers. I punched holes in my cupcake frosting and layered a piece of striped cardstock behind so my sprinkles would look colorful. The sentiment is from SU!

Won't you visit us at SoftPencil Studios this week to see some cute and fun creations and find out what Sunny is up to? Just "HOP" (pun intended) on over to SoftPencil Studios and get an eye full.

I Spy a Color Throw Down

iSpy Sketch #124 & ColorThrowDown #200!

I loved the CAKE inspiration sooo much at Color Throw Down that I used the Chocolate Chip as my base coloe. Then I added the other colors in bits and pieces here and there as demonstrated in the iSpy Sketch. I love bright and cheery feel of this card and it would be so sweet as a Get Well or Happy Birthday card! Sometimes you may not feel comfortable with a busy sketch as this. So instead of using multiple patterns, stick to solids. But I like this chaotic mish mash of patterns, shapes and colors. Go For It!

Freshly Made #43



Here's the sketch for week #43 at Freshly Made Sketches.


And here's my card. Last week I was gifted some dsps and I really fell for this particular pattern. So I played with it stamping my flowers onto the blue side with Island Indigo ink and heat embossed. I stamped the leaves on the other side with Old Olive and heat embossed. This is a really fun sketch and I totally loved playing with it!

SPT#13


Howdy! Time for another SoftPencil Tuesday. This is week 13. Today I am featuring stickers from the Charming Collection. I used 3 of the hearts. Just used a little embossing buddy powder on the back and then placed a dimensional so they would all be raised just a little.

Check out SoftPencil Studios and the rest of the DT entries.

SPT12

SoftPencil Tuesday #12 - Today I am once again using the stickers. I love these stickers because they are so easy to use. I've got Sunny in a stack of clay pots and Molly with a potted plant. I added some stamped flowers in the background. I was looking for my bloom stamp but when I found it I realized it was WAY to big. So I chose Happy Birthday instead. How do you like the store front window look to my card? It's so much fun mixing and matching stickers!!!  Check out the rest of the DT. Their links are in my side bar.
