More Challenge FUN!!!

I thought why not add some more challenge fun into the mix this week so Your Next Stamp is the proud sponsor of the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! YAY!

The theme for the challenge is ‘Character Counts’ – you need to use a well known cartoon character somewhere on your card or creation πŸ™‚
Well of course I wanted to use a YNS image for this challenge so after trying to make Fairy Fhiona Tinker Bell and the Let It Snow Snowman Frosty I decided to convert Happy as a Reindeer into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!!! FUN!

Also YNS challenge #1 – pink and yellow is going on right now so hop on over to the YNS challenge blog and join in on the fun!!!

With both these challenges you have a chance to win some fabulous Your Next Stamp stamps!!! So go on and start creating and join in!!!

Also remember that YNS limited edition digital stamps are only available until October 31st!!!

Have a wonderful few days! I’ll be back later in the week with a super fab card from Jen del Muro!!! Be sure to check out her Sketch for you to Try!!! I see she has a fun goodie bag prize up for grabs this week!!!

YNS is the proud sponsor of the Pink Elephant Challenge this week so I’d like to encourage everyone to check it out and participate!!!! FUN!!!

Here is my take on the FUN recipe they have for you today. They have asked everyone to create a project that includes dots, use of a punch and a tag. I really like how my card turned out and I am totally addicted to those adorable cookie cutter embellies!!! I used all little stamps from different sets – Merry Christmas, Present, Stocking

Now since I didn’t share any cards for the hop I’d like to share a few of my creations with you today!!!

Windswept Fhiona {all the details are below}

Monster Sign {all the details are below}

Monster Sign Side View

Windswept Fhiona – I just LOVE this stamp!!!!
I stamped Fhiona with Memento black ink on Simply Smooth White Prism cardstock and cut her out with my circle nesties. She colored in with Copics and the leaves are colored in with fine tip Bic markers plus I fun flocked her hat – too cute!! The dp is SEI Playday Flower Shower , the pink cardstock is Prismatics and the brown is Core’dinations the ribbon is Stampin Up.
Monster Sign – this is such a fun stamp!!!
I stamped Monster with Memento black ink on Simply Smooth Prism cardstock and then just cut it out along with all the layers with my trimmer and distressed the edges with scissors. Plus I paper pierced along the black layer but you can’t see it very well in the picture. Monster is colored in with Copics and then I drew a line so the Doodle Bug Spidie Braddie would hang from the sign. The other fun bats and ghosts are Jessie James Buttons. The dp is My Minds Eye – Boo To You! and the cardstock is DCWV white core and Stampin Up.
Enjoy your day!

Summer Fun

Well it was bright and sunny all weekend so I was in the mood to create a summer fun card to share with you today πŸ™‚
The image is Summer Fun Fhiona – isn’t she just darling?

The dp is from our Blossoms and Butterflies collection and the pearls/gems are from the new Prima Marketing collection – I love all the different colors of pearls! The butterfly is made with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and then I added little crystals to make it sparkle πŸ™‚
