Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge recipe #39

Hi All
Happy Friday:-) This week was the last week of school for my youngest son, bittersweet he did the clap out where the 5th graders walked out the main hall of the school with parents clapping for their last walk through the school:-( he is officially a Middle school boy now..Horror! I had my cry and now we are onto summer vacation!
My card this week is different for me as I used a 5x7 format to compliment the sketch! I love my square cards so this looked weird to me but cute, :-)

On to this weeks sponsor and challenge. This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps.
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps is proud to sponsor this challenge.We offer a variety of images for all occasions.We are happy to offer the winner of this challenge 3 Robyn's Fetish stamps of their choice.

1. Use the sketch
2. Use a Nursery Rhyme theme
3. Add a charm
My card I used papers from Nanas nursery by DCWV , added a few prima flowers and the leaves are from the SU bird punch, I added a random heart charm I had since I didn't have any baby themed charms and thought the heart was cute with this:-) I colored my image with copics and added some fine glitter to the petals! Simple but just perfect for the sketch here!

C4E Recipe#37

Hi Everyone:-)
Did you ever have one of those weeks where you couldn't get moving?? Yup that's been this week for me with a bad cold and no energy!
This weeks Recipe is:
1. Use the sketch above
2. Include some strawberries
3. add some lace
I used my Tilda from last year, in her strawberry outfit:-)and the sentiment is from the same collection.I have tryed a new paper with my Copics this time and like it but I need some more practice with it as I see my copic coloring bled a bit, which I'm not used to with the Neenah paper.. the new paper is from Couture Cardstock, called Detail Blending paper. I placed an order with them and got a few different kinds, so this is the first I experimented with, next will be the one sheet wonder by them. DP is Basic Grey, Bazzill CS. I added a sizzix corner piece, added a piece of lace and ribbon from MM Passport collection. The girlie is colored with Copic's, I added dimensional glaze to her shoes, the strawberry, and the watering can to give a shiny effect, I cut apart the flower of another image and pop dotted it to the petal on the image flower to give it a 3-D effect, and added a hint of fine glitter to the whole flower. the sentiment was cut out using my SU circle punch, and I inked the edge with a no brand chalk ink pad for the green. Please go and have a look at my fellow DT members creations:-) at Crafts 4 Eternity
Here's wishing everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge recipe #36

Good Morning everyone:-) This should have been up last night but I must have caught something when I was away on the class trip with Ryan last week and I have a cold:-(
So Here is this weeks recipe for Crafts 4 Eternity and I had a lot of fun with it and Tilda:-)
Requirements this week are as follows:
1. Use the sketch above
2. Include some flowers
3. Add a flourish!
This weeks prize will be a Guest DT spot for July and Digital stamps from C4E.
My Card is a 5.5x5.5 I used Paper trey ink and Bazzill CS for the base and layers,The DP is from Crate paper Bliss collection:-) Flourish cut outs are an EK success punch, flowers are a few from a gift and the white is from wild orchid crafts, the corner and border punches I used for the large green square are from MS I think it's called crown punch? I used Copics to color my Tilda from Magnolia in and the flourish cuts and long rectangle piece have been spritzed with tattered angels silver, since I didn't want the cream CS so bright behind behind my image. Oh and I turned my sketch sideways for my card!There are also tiny little rhinestones on her flower wreath, and a teeny tiny flower on the top of her dress I found in Target in the dollar spot, I think they might have been nail art for little girls and knew they would come in to use at some point on my cards:-)
Please go see what the other DT members came up with and whip up a card for the challenge:-)
