Deepest Thanks w/PCS

PCSbanner

I’m over on the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog today!!  This is the DS219- Sublime Digital Stamp set in the Pretty Cute Stamps Shop.  I used the png files to create a scene and then colored up the card!!

 

PrettyCuteStamps-DS219-Sublime-kelA

I FINALLY got my distress inks in and got to play with them on this card for the first time!  I’m pretty happy with how it came out!!  I had printed a couple of these scenes out just in case I messed up, so cut one of them out to make a mask so I could color up the background without coloring up the sub and the fishies!!  And it worked really well too!!  Love it!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

Dare2BArtzy-FlipFlops-Chair-Distressed-kelA

I got to play with the Flip Flops set and it is just amazing.  Being from Hawaii though, we don’t call them flip flops, we call them slippers.  So if you ever come to Hawaii and ask for flip flops or talk about wearing flip flops the local people will know for sure you’re not from around here!!  haha!!  Anywhoo, I went distressed with this one… and I really never do distressed if I can help it.  I blame it on the brand new distress inks sitting on my desk.  No excuse not to use them since they’re already out, right?!?  haha!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your next stop in the hop is going back to Cindy – Dare 2B Artzy blog!

We hope you are inspired all along the way!

Check out all D2BA’s products here!

Happy Hopping!

Bus Stop w/LSB


LemonShortbread-challengeblog-badge300px

It’s time for a new Lemon Shortbread Challenge!!  All of our challenges are Anything Goes and any image is welcome!!  I got to play with Bus Stop Girl and she can be found in the Lemon Shortbread Etsy Store.

LemonShortbread-BusStopGirl-kelA

She is SO CUTE.  And she reminds me of the K-Dramas I watch with my mom… not fully sure why, maybe because she’s at a bus stop!!  haha!!  Anywhoo, I framed her white on white and tried to keep it simple.  I wanted to make it look like a polaroid frame but ended up printing the digi a little too big for that… whoops!!  lol.  But that’s okay, I still love how it came out!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!!

July Challenge w/PCS

07 July

It’s challenge time over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog!!!  The Pretty Cute Stamps Monthly Challenge for July is “By the Sea” and I got to play with this cutie patootie from the Merman set in the “New” section of the shop.

 

PrettyCuteStamps-DS214-Merman-kelA

I colored him up and added him to some super fun paper… I think I’ve had this paper in my scrap pile for a few years!!  I flagged his sentiment strips and then added them to the card too.  The button was just a nice extra embellishment to add some extra color pop!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you come join in the challenge!!
