I haven't had a chance to colour up this super cute Pure Innocence Dashing By girl and thought she would be perfect for this card! I pulled out my Peerless Watercolours to make the water coloured background on the Distress Water Color paper. I used the Horizontal and Vertical Stitched Strips Die-nmaics

I also inked up the Winter Waves Background Stamp and stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Thanks Snow Much Stamp set in Black Licorice Cardstock cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. I embellished with Hemp cord and a smattering of Gold sparkly Gumdrops.

I finished off the inside of my card too....I stamped the Pure Innocence Warm Winter girl and coloured her with my Copics and fussy cut her out. I tucked her in behind the sentiment panel with the Layered Labels Die-namics and stamped and embossed another sentiment from the Pure Innocence Thanks Snow Much Stamp set. I cut a few hearts with the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for the Colour Throwdown # 377 and the MFTWSC # 265

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Girly and SugarPea Designs SugarSketch # 36...Take Note

Hello stampin' friends! I am back with a SugarPea Designs card that I made for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Girly and the SPD SugarSketch # 36! You still have time to join us! You have until January -25th at 8 AM CDT to share your girly creations with us!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

A few of the Curtain Call Crew gals are here to provide some more inspiration for you!

I followed the SugarPea Designs SugarSketch # 36 and substituted the large circle with the Notebook Journal Card Sugar Cuts and took a few other liberties with the sketch but I think it still works ;)

I used a Teresa Collins 6X6 Family Stories paper pad from my stash and inked up this sweet little girl from the SugarPea Designs Take Note Stamp set. I coloured her with my Copics, paper pieced her dress and fussy cut her out and popped her up on the Notebook Journal Card.

I stamped a sentiment from the Take Note Stamp set on the pierced fishtail flag from the Gift Tag Sugar Cuts and layered it over the smallest circle from the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Sugar Cuts. I also die-cut the cute little paper clip from Notebook Journal Card Sugar Cuts. I embellished with a sprinkling of Your Next Stamp Gumdrops and some Hemp cord.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Girly & Reverse Confetti SKYTT # 32...LOVE Life

Hello stampin' friends! I have some exciting news...I'm thrilled to join the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Crew...Whoo hoo!!! The Curtain Call Challenge is one of my all-time favourite challenges to play along with and I'm SO honoured and  SO excited to have a regular gig with the CCIC Crew!!!

So, without further ado, Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Girly 

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be the Guest Designer in an upcoming Challenge!

I used the Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try # 32 for my card!

I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Kraft, Nightshift Blue, Brick Red, Sno Cone and Bubblegum!

I was inspired by many of the items found in the inspiration photo that we have for the Curtain Call - Girly and incorporated them into this card. 

I coloured up the adorable little cat from the Reverse Confetti Too Cute to Spook Stamp set  (clearly, this stamp set is not just for Halloween) as my take on the cute little knit kitten toque. I added a little bow  that I stamped, coloured and fussy cut from the Reverse Confetti Puppy Love Stamp set and adhered it to the kitty to make her a little more "girly". I searched through my extensive stash of patterned paper to find a pretty floral pattern like the one on the notebook in the inspiration photo...this BasicGrey Lucile 6X6 Paper was perfect and I added in some BasicGrey Clippings 6X6 papers too!  I used my Reverse Confetti Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts to reflect the round compact in the inspiration photo.

I also found some brown crocheted trim in my stash, similar to the brown lace trim in the inspiration photo and I embellished with some YNS sparkly gold Gumdrops picking up on the gold bow on the little gift box in the pic. Finally, I stamped this inspirational sentiment with MFT Nightshift Premium Dye Ink from the Reverse Confetti Posted Notes Sentiments Stamp set to mimic the text on the cell-phone case in the inspiration photo.
