Corrosive Tickled Tim Holtz... Wha...?

 My blog title probably sounds like something from one of those Mad Libs word games!  Or perhaps like non-sense spouted from one over-tired crafter who may see the sun rise in order to get all her duties squared away. (Well, THAT will teach me to go off and party with a rock band on a Saturday night! lol)  But I assure you what appears to be a bit of silliness is actually just a combination of two fun challenges, one fabulous online digi stamp company, and the infamous Tim Holtz! 

I have combined my Corrosive Challenge card with my Tickled Pink Stamps sponsorship card for Crafting When We Can.  The wonderful thing about this is that Tickled Pink Stamps is our May sponsor over at The Corrosive Challenge so it all ties in quite nicely!  Confused yet?  Well, don't be.  It's simple: to join us at The Corrosive Challenge simply use at least one Tim Holtz item on your project.  It could be his stamps, dies, embossing folder, inks, or accessories!  Whatever you have in your crafty stash or that new product you bought because we were a good excuse to do so!   Please just tell us in your blog post what it was you used.  To join the Crafting When We Can sketch challenge, use the layout below for your creation.  Both offer up some amazing Tickled Pink Stamps prizes!



For my card I have used Lil Spanish Lolita Willow from Tickled Pink Stamps.  Cinco de Mayo is almost here, and I have a friend who absolutely loves it.  I think what she really loves is an excuse to drink margaritas, but who can blame a girl for celebrating that, right? lol  The designer paper is from Basic Grey.  Border punch is Martha Stewart.  And my flowers are a mix of WOC and Recollections.  Can you find my Tim Holt items?  Well, that would be the music embossing folder used behind Senorita Willow; the metal photo corner; and the ornate metal bookplate frame.  My image is colored with Copics and, of course, my layout is courtesy of Challenge #17 at Crafting When We Can because it's Sketch Time there!



 Be sure to head over to both The Corrosive Challenge AND Tickled Pink Stamps blogs to see what each design team has done for these fantastic challenges!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a spectacular Sunday!

Fabulous Freebie Friday

Team spirit is something that Sassy Studio Designs definitely has!  We work together to bring you all the wonderful creations you see on the blog and on Paper Craft Planet.  And we include our fans by offering a free image every Friday to those who belong to our PCP group!  Are you a member? (If not, it's free and easy to join!) 

And believe me, you'll want to shout when you see this week's cutie: Rah Rah Rhonda!



Today starts a new challenge over on PCP as well.  This fortnight it's "Varsity Letter".  We want to see you use your chipboard, sticker, or stamped letters!  I opted for chipboard.  These glittery ones are called Delight from American Crafts Thickers line.  Rhonda is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and adhered with foam squares to my card.  The layout is Sketch 117 from Cards & Things.  I replaced the straight banner with a pennant banner, made with the Die-namic from My Favorite Things.  The designer paper is Recollections and is entitled Cheer Words.  I decided with the busy paper and bright colors that it was best to keep embellishments to a minimum so I simply added a few flowers in the upper corner.  The center circle was made using my Spellbinders Picot Circles Nestie.

Remember, you have 24 hours to head over to PCP and download this peppy image for yourself.  The Fabettes also have lovely creations to share with you there as well.

I am looking forward to the weekend!  I am off to see Nickelback in concert with my best friend and her oldest daughter on Saturday night!  It should be a good time, even if we do have to sit near the rafters.

Enjoy your day!

Two Anniversaries and a Birthday

 Hello!  It's been a few days since I've posted anything.  I was so busy last week that I suffered from a bit of crafty burn-out.  I had to take a short hiatus to recover but today I wanted to share a few creations I made as special requests.


The first is a first for me: a wine bottle topper tag.  A friend of mine is in a wedding next month.  The bridal shower was this past weekend and each bridesmaid was assigned a poem to commemorate a future milestone in the happy couple's life.  They were to create a tag with the poem on it and place it on a bottle of wine or champagne with the idea that the couple would enjoy that bottle on said occasion.  She was put in charge of their 10th anniversary.  She promptly came to me with pleas of "I must have the best tag there... Will you help me?!"  How could I refuse?  So I found a tutorial online (which can be viewed here on YouTube) and went at it.

The poem is computer generated, cut with Spellbinders Nesties Label Eighteen and sponged lightly with Pool Party ink from Stampin' Up.  The image is from the fabulous "May I Have This Dance" set from My Favorite Things.  I paper pieced the heck out of it, coloring only their skin and his pants and tie with my Copics.  I masked the image and sponged around it with So Saffron ink.  I also used one of MFT's Die-namics dies, Dizzy Doily Duo.  Papers are Lost & Found Two: Sunshine from My Mind's Eye.  I added a few flowers and some pearls and used a Martha Stewart border punch along the bottom edge to complete the project.   


Markers use: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E25, E27).



Here is a close-up of the tag:

I'd like to enter my anniversary wine bottle topper tag in the following challenges:
- C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: #151-Wedding/Anniversary
- So Artful Challenge: Wedding/Anniversary 
- Crafting For All Seasons: #25-Anything But A Card 
- Creative Inspirations Paint: CI Paints Inspired By-Tags  
- Top Tip Tuesday: #75-Anything But A Card

My next assignment was a birthday card for a 1st birthday.  And I was told that the little boy who was celebrating is a huge Mickey Mouse fan.  I found a Mickey Mouse stamp set from Inkadinkado, a Mouse Ears punch, and the cute Mickey paper all at Joann's.  I wanted to keep the design simple so all I added was a length of ribbon, the ribbon slide, and some black glitter chipboard letters to spell out the all important "ONE".  The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called "Happiest Birthday Wishes".  I'm told it was well-received.

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, Y38, YR15) and Prismacolor Art Markers (169).
 

And my final project was an anniversary card for a co-worker's grandparents.  When I asked if they had any hobbies, likes, or interests he immediately replied, "Their 57 Tbird.  It's red."  It was a no brainer what stamp set I was going to be using for this card - Classic Convertibles from Stampin' Up.  Papers are from the Wander collection from Basic Grey.  I added some ruffled ribbon in Baja Breeze (also Stampin' Up) and a couple of tires from some $1 model kits I found at Michaels.  My layout is courtesy of My Time Made Easy (Pretty Pattern sketch #57) and their color challenge (Pretty Palette #56) which was cherry, blue, and black.  I also used Spellbinders Nesties Labels Three to mat my image and to stamp my sentiment on.  The actual sentiment is taken from another My Favorite Things set called "Who's That Birthday Girl?".  It may not be my usual style, but I was pretty pleased with the outcome and my co-worker told me it was a hit at the party, being passed around the room and admired!  That made my day!

Markers used: Copics (W4, B00, E23, Y35, Y38) and Prismacolor Art Markers (169).
   


 That is all I have to show off today, but I'll be back later in the week so I hope you'll visit again.  I hope you enjoyed my creations and thank you for stopping by!  Hope you are having a fabulous week so far!

Sassy Studio Designs Second FAN-tastic Release


Hello and welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs blog hop!   If you are arriving here from Rebecca's blog you are on the right track (and are probably tired and thirsty!  Phew!  This was a long one; take a break, have a drink, rest a moment... Okay, rest period over! lol).  If you have just stumbled upon the hop then you'll want to go back to the beginning at the Sassy Studio Designs blog where you will find the complete hop list.

I was assigned Renaissance Sassy as my image to show, but I fear she is not yet ready for viewing.  It has been a very busy week for me, and as will happen, time has gotten away from me. I offer you no excuses (other than the new blogger format is freaking me out a little), and hope you will check back shortly as she is in process and will be posted soon.  Until then all I have for you is my favorite and least favorite crafting tools.

Woo hoo!  M'Lady is ready!  Renaissance Sassy was another of my suggestions, but since there is already a Wonder Regan in the Sassy Studio Designs shop, her name is still being determined.  I have paired her with some Basic Gray Urban Prairie papers and the current sketch (#85) at Sketch N Stash.  Flowers, black rhinestone flourishes, and a Tim Holtz metal corner are the items I choose to embellish with.  I thought since art was an important part of the Renaissance that I would give her a "framed" look.  I used my Fleur de Lis Nestie to create this effect.  Her dress is paper pieced and the rest is colored with Copics.

Our amazing new release coordinator, Rebecca, has asked that we share our most and least favorite crafting items with you.  Have you even been to the craft store, looked at an item and thought "this is SO cool; I MUST have it!" only to get it home and realize it doesn't quite live up to its potential?  And as for the fabulous finds, well, of course we want to tell you about the things we love!  Though it's not the newest tool in my stash, I have to say that my die cutting machine is my absolute fave!  I don't know how I ever managed to make a card before it came into my life!  I own the Cuttlebug and have amassed a vast amount of dies and embossing folders for use within!  I just feel I am able to achieve a new level of creativeness with the variety of shapes and details the machine makes available to me!  As for my least favorite...  I really have thought about this and nothing really jumped out at me.  I haven't purchased anything lately that I was disappointed in so I am going to have to say my hot glue gun as we just do NOT get along!  I find him messy and awkward and though the hold may be superior to my trusty monoadhesive, I much prefer that neat, clean, and compact sticking power to the heated glob I inevitably end up with with the hot glue gun.  So I hope Rebecca is happy... There.  I did it.  It's official.  The glue gun and I have broken up.  

Now off with you to Ruza's blog to see what gorgeous creation she has for you!  Don't forget to leave comments as you hop!  There will be Sassy prizes!  Two random winners will be selected from all the blog comments received from the entire design team.  It will be totally random and could be from any of the blogs so the more love you leave, the better your chance of winning one image of your choice.  Also, leave a comment on the SSD blog telling us what your favorite.least favorite crafting tool is and you're entered to win the grand prize of 3 of the brand new images!   

Also, be sure to join us tonight on the party blog as well for a chat with the design team! The party starts at 7pm PDT (10pm EDT).  Hope to "see" you there!   Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Fabulous Freebie Friday


I could use three wishes right about now.... Heck, I'd even just settle for some coffee! It has been a crazy, busy week! Not only are there the responsibilities of work and home, but I have been one busy little crafter too! I've already made 4 cards and a wine bottle topper (which I must blog later because I am simply thrilled with how it turned out), AND I still have two more to do before the week is out! Not sure where I am going to squeeze that in, but I always get it done! Maybe I should wish for more time to craft...?

If you wished for a free Sassy Studio Designs image, well then wish granted, my friends! If you head over to our Paper Craft Planet group today you can make this delightful genie, Jeanie, yours! She will be available for 24 hours before disappearing back into her bottle. There is also a fabulous challenge every fortnight at our PCP group. This is week #2 of our "Leather and Lace" theme. We want to see you break out your fabrics, laces, tulles, and trims for this one!

I have opted for some tulle (see it up there in the left corner in my flower "bouquet"?) and the gold coin fringe trim. Jeanie is colored with Copics and mounted with foam squares to give her some dimension. I was fighting with my paper and my layout and my embellies and not liking any of it very much when I decided to add the Tim Holtz adage ticket. The "WISH" sentiment was just what the card needed! Papers are from a K&Company pad called Que Sera Sera. Flowers are a mix of WOC and Recollections. This card also qualifies for our Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge of "Flowers and Flourishes" this week so visit the Sassy Studio Designs blog if you'd like to play along!

I hope you'll stop by Paper Craft Planet and visit the Fabettes there! They have all conjured up some fabulous creations for you! Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for the Sassy Studio Designs new release blog hop! You won't want to miss the rest of the FAN-tastic fan inspired images!

Have an amazing day!

Sassy Studio Designs Sneak Peek: Elizabeth Laura Bennet



Has it seemed like forever since we had a Sassy Studio Designs release? Well, your wait is over, and we're here with a few days of sneak peeks before release day on Saturday! Today we start off our 2nd round of FAN-tastic fan-inspired images with Elizabeth "Laura" Bennet! The "Laura" comes from our PCP member Laura B. who suggested the Pride and Prejudice heroine!

My Elizabeth was colored with Copics and fussy cut before being placed in the center of this gorgeous sketch by Crafting Life's Pieces (CLP-46). Papers are Kissing Booth by Basic Gray. I've used a Tim Holtz embossing folder and Muse Token, a Martha Stewart border punch, and assorted flowers and pearls to complete the elegant, feminine look I was hoping to achieve.

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E13, E15, E17, E19, R20, R81, R85, RV29, RV34, W4, W6, W8, YG93, YG95)

Please visit the Sassy Studio Designs blog to see what my talented team has made for this preview. That's right; it's the Fabettes showing off our 1st image of the long awaited, much anticipated second fan release! You'll also want to check back on Thursday and Friday for additional sneak peeks from our DTBST and sponsorship teams! Then join us Saturday for another FAN-tastic blog hop (complete with prizes) and a party chat with the newly expanded Sassy design team!

- Bearly Mine: #31-Embossing

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

The Corrosive Challenge #147 - Hit the Bottle



"Hit the Bottle" is the new theme over at The Corrosive Challenge. Now while a mimosa may certainly be tempting on this gorgeous Sunday morning, I am not advocating the consumption of adult beverages in any way, especially this early in the day! So put down the alcohol (unless it's the rubbing variety and you plan to use it on your project)! For this fortnight, we want to see something that came from a bottle on your creations. Think Stickles, glaze, crackle, liquid pearls, re-inkers, paint, even bleach! Let's see what you can pour on!

Our sponsor for April is the fun and quirky Dilly Beans Digi Stamps! They have offered a prize of three digi images of choice to our monthly winner!

Today I have decided to work with a Saturated Canary image because I have SO wanted to play along in their challenges but lately never seem to have time to do any cards that aren't for a DT commitment or an order! So this time I made it a point to incorporate a challenge I wanted to do in with one that was required. I think it worked out perfectly! "April Showers" is the challenge over at Saturated Canary Challenge right now so I selected Krista's One of Those Days image and added daubs of glaze on the falling rain drops plus a little Stickles to her tights. Here is a close-up of my colored image, showing the detail:



The papers are from another one of those yummy 6x6 My Mind's Eye pads that I can't seem to stop buying like they are candy! It's called Quite Contrary - Jack and Jill and the sheets with the umbrellas and the rain drops were practically MADE for this card! This soggy cutie is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and cut out using my Labels Four Nesties. The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called Rain or Shine. I've added a few embellies - flowers, pearls, half a doily, and a couple of pearl topped pins. My layout was inspired by the sketch from My Time Made Easy (MTMEPPS56).

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R43, E23, E25, E27, E33, Y35, Y38, BG15) and Prismacolor Art Markers (151, 169).

I'd also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
- Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge: April Showers
- Frosted Designs: Weather
- Crafting For All Seasons: #24-April Showers
- Scrapalicious USA: April Showers
- Papertake Weekly Challenge: April Showers (or Water Water Everywhere)
- Party Time Tuesday's Challenge Blog: #63-Water

Please head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team has done for this fun challenge! I think you will agree that they are incredibly talent ladies! And I hope you'll play along so we can see your talent! You have until April 29th to link your projects.

Thanks for the visit! I hope you have an amazing day!

Fabulous Freaky, I mean, Freebie Friday



Happy Friday the 13th! It's funny that I believe in certain things that perhaps can't be explained by rational means, but I'm not superstitious. I won't be avoiding black cats or ladders today. Not that I'll have much occasion to cross paths with either, but if I did, I would not shy away. I also will not be forwarding any e-mails that promise me good luck or money for doing so. I'll take my chances, thanks. But what I will be doing is telling you about a couple of fabulous things over at Sassy Studio Designs!

First, it's Friday so that means another amazing freebie over on our Paper Craft Planet group! If you haven't joined, you'll want to! Not because any ill fortune will befall you if you don't, but because every week we offer up one of Lindsay's incredible images for free! And I know you don't want to miss out on that! We also have a challenge there every fortnight.

Today's image is Queen Gorgo, from the movie 300! She was a freebie there last year as a way of celebrating 300 members (which we've more than doubled now so I know a lot of you have yet to snag her). She is one of my favorite movie characters and one of my favorite Sassy images! Our theme for this fortnight's challenge is "Leather and Lace". Or as I told the Fabettes "tassels and tulle" or "twine and trim". We want to see fabric or fiber of some sort somewhere on your project. I went literal with the "leather and lace" on my easel card. I haven't made one of these in a while so I thought it would be fun! I've used the sketch from this week's Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge (#120), created my very talented design team mate Kathy. The sentiment is computer generated using the Bleeding Cowboys font and is a quote from the movie. It's from the scene where she stabs the bad guy! Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found: Union Square. I've used a couple of Martha Stewart punches (drippy goo and branch) and added some flowers, black pearls, and Tim Holtz metal corners along with some glittery black chipboard numbers for the "300".

I hope you will visit both PCP and the SSD blog today to see what the awesome design teams have created for both these wonderful challenges! Remember, the freebie is only available for 24 hours so you'll want to head over to PCP sooner than later.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous freaky Friday!

Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsors Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog



Happy Easter! I hope the Bunny was good to everyone and that there is enough chocolate in your house to make your dentist cringe! Before I head off for Easter dinner with the family, I wanted to tell you quickly about a fabulous Tickled Pink Stamps sponsorship for Paper Sundaes! It is one of their yummy sundae "toppings" bar challenges, and you have some delightful items to choose from - kraft card stock, die cuts, lace, and charms. You must select at least 2 of the 4 to use on your project. I had it in my head that "lace" was "doily" for some reason so I have only used 3 out of 4! Oopsie!! Although the Martha Stewart border punch I used does have a definite lacy feel to it.

For my card I've selected School Pinkette Heidi as my image. She was recently released along with her three classmates - Chloe, Kira, and Jessie! Papers are from the Grade School stack from DCWV. The fish tail pennant element was made with pieces from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I added a few WOC flowers and an apple charm. My layout is the current Mojo Monday sketch (#235).

Be sure to head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what the rest of the {PINK} ladies have created! And play along over at Paper Sundaes for your chance to win a fantastic TPS prize!

Enjoy your holiday, if you celebrate it, and have a lovely day!

Fabulous Freebie Friday



It's not just a good Friday, it's a fabulous Friday! And this one is even more special because we are welcoming our new Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday design team! These gals are crazy creative and totally talented! I like to refer to ourselves as the "Fabettes"! lol Well, okay, not really, but you laughed, right? Head over to our Paper Craft Planet group to meet my team and see what amazing creations they have made using this week's 24 hour free image, "Grecian Gracie".

I haven't crafted all week so I was feeling a little rusty when I started this card, but it didn't take long for my mojo to return. I was especially proud of my addition of the Tim Holtz "Muse" word stick at the very last minute! One of those crafty strokes of genius, if I do say so myself! The sketch is No. 46 from The Deconstructed Sketch. I haven't played along over there in a while, and I love Jen's sketches. Gracie was printed "big head" size and cut with Nesties Labels Seventeen. She was colored with Copics, with just her dress being paper pieced. (Papers are from DCWV, The Rustic Stack.) The border punch I used is one of my favorites and naturally it's from Martha Stewart! I usually pair it with ocean and sea related projects but decided to live a little today! I've also added my usual array of flowers (WOC and Recollections) and pearls as well as a couple of Stampin' Up brads. I also thought it would be fun to cross-promote my crafty friend and fellow Sassy Studio Designs team mate Kathy's Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge (#119), which is "Go For Broke". Loading up on embellies isn't a hard task for me! Please head over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog to see what her super team has come up with to inspire you to play along!

And be sure to pop in to Paper Craft Planet before tomorrow morning to download "Grecian Gracie" because after 24 hours, she's gone! There is still another week left of our "Spring Break: Anything Goes" challenge on PCP, and we'd love for you to join us! **You must use a SSD image for the PCP challenge. See our group for all the details!**

We have lots of exciting things in store for you at Sassy Studio Designs in April so I hope you'll check back often!

Happy Easter weekend and hope you enjoy your day!

Tickled Pink Stamps Pinkette Preview: School Pinkette Kira



Hi! I'm back with another Tickled Pink Stamps School Pinkette preview! Today we are showcasing Kira! I imagine her as the one who makes the school uniform fashionable. She's smart, sweet, and a little bit sassy. And she is front and center of this fabulous Crazy 4 Challenges sketch (C4C130), colored in Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares. Papers are Oxford from Basic Gray, and I couldn't wait to use them! All other embellishments are from my stash (Tim Holtz Type Charms, pleated ribbon, pearl strip, flowers). I used the Tim Holtz File Tab die to add a little interest. I also put a dab of glaze pen on the lenses of her glasses. The gorgeous Picot Circle die is a Spellbinders Nestie!

Please head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what the rest of the amazing {PINKette} ladies have created with this lil darling! And if you leave a comment there, you'll be entered for a chance to win a digi image of your own!

Thanks again for dropping in! Have a fabulous Monday!

Meep!



Hello again! Just me again, with my third post for the day. Trying to get caught up with all my crafty stuff. I'm a little late with this one (missed The Sweet Stop sketch challenge (SSS151) completely), but I wanted to share anyway since Beaker is my favorite Muppet! This is the card I made for my best friend's birthday party last weekend. She threw herself a Muppet themed party. We watched the new movie as part of the festivities, of course! Fond memories of childhood! And it was very cool to share them with my small man!

The Beaker image I found online. It is colored with Copics (E11, E21, E00, E23, E25, E27, R20, R43, W4, YG03, YG91, B00, B37, Y32, Y35, YR04, YR07, YR15) and Prismacolor Art Markers (155). I kept my embellishments to a minimum because I wanted the fun chemistry paper (Jillibean Soup - Atomic Soup) to take the spotlight. I am proud to say he was well-received! I was also in charge of the cake. I contacted a local bakery (one I've used several times before for themed cakes) and asked them to work their magic!

Here is the resulting Muppet cake!

Here is a photo of the birthday girl, Michele, with her cake (and her drink)!
Kayne enjoying his cake.
There were also "Rainbow Connection" sugar cookies.

Me and Michele
It was a fun night! There was even an authentic popcorn machine (but I forgot to get a photo of it)! She has the best parties! I guess we'd better start planning for next year soon.... It's the big 4-0! MEEP! And for the record, it's a week later and I'm STILL singing that song: Mahnam Mahnam... Doo Doo Da Doo Doo! :)

Thanks for stopping by (again)! Hope you're enjoying your day!

The Corrosive Challenge #146 - Heavy Metal




April Fool's!!! It's April 1st which is the day notorious for tricks and pranks, but all you'll find here is a new Corrosive Challenge and a fabulous new sponsor! Oh, and perhaps a visit to the Easter Bunny this afternoon since Easter is next weekend, and we haven't gotten around to that yet.

The Corrosive Challenge would like to welcome Dilly Beans Stamps as our sponsor for the month. They have offered up 3 images of choice for our winner. (Artist Megan was also kind enough to provide each member of the design team with an image to work with for which we are very appreciative!) This fortnight the challenge is "Heavy Metal". No headbanging required. Simply use something made out of metal on your project.

My card has two metal embellishments - the ornate frame and the corner, both from Tim Holtz. Here is a close up of the frame.



This awesome image is called 382-Abby Framed from Dilly Beans. She is colored with Copics, and I couldn't resist adding a little bling! The crown is a Martha Stewart punch, topped with tiny rhinestones. Flowers are from my stash as is the remaining bling. Papers are by Recollections, and I loved them because one side said "Keep Calm and Carry On" while the other read "Freak Out. Panic Now." Bwahaha! I can relate to the latter! I think that's why I chose to pair it with the My Favorite Thing's sentiment from their Twisted Threesome set.

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, R85, W6, W8, W10, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97).



My layout is the current sketch from Mojo Monday (#234). I hope you will stop by the Corrosive Challenge blog to see what incredible creations the design team has put together for this challenge. And I hope you'll be inclined to play along too!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- ATCs & Cards with Attitude: #10-Anything Goes
- Cardfairy's Digi Days Challenge: #30-Die Cuts and/or Punches
- Wags 'n Whiskers: #76-Say It With Flowers

Thanks for visiting! I will be back with more TPS posts this week so please come back soon!

Tickled Pink Stamps Pinkette Preview: School Pinkette Chloe



Welcome to the first day of previews for the new Pinkette digis from Tickled Pink Stamps! There are four darling images in all in the School Pinkette line, which will be released on April 5th. Today we are sharing the first cutie with you, and her name is Chloe! Isn't she adorable in her school girl skirt and backpack?! I just love her fab hair cut too!

I used the current sketch from Graphicat Designs sketch challenge (#4) as my layout. Paired with some Basic Gray papers from their Out of Print collection, and embellished with flowers, baker's twine, a rhinestone flourish, and a Tim Holtz muse token, this little sweetie is ready to learn! Or at least take on recess!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E23, E25, E27, W4, W6, W8, W10, R20, R85, BG15).


Please head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to meet the lovely ladies from the newly expanded Pinkette design team and to see all the gorgeous creations they have to share with you! Plus if you leave a comment on the TPS blog you could be the lucky one who wins a copy of this sweet school girl for your very own!

I'm afraid I have been lax with my crafting this week because I had my nose buried in a paperback copy of The Hunger Games, but I will be back later with a new Corrosive Challenge as well as more Pinkette previews!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: #126-Use a Digi Image
- Pattie's Creations Design Challenge: #40-Anything Goes
- Stampin' for the Weekend: #6-Anything Goes

Thanks for popping in and enjoy your day!
