cucake dragon

It’s the anniversary of my fathers 92nd birthday, and  i really miss him , this challenge  seem really appropriate and reminds me of him for he had a favorite dragon ring( kinda like the one on the inspiration cupcake),  plus I have this great  dragon stamp from Stamps Happen Inc.  I stamped then chalked for color then a added  this sentiment(kinda hard to read) ‘ Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,  for you are crunchy and taste good with ketshup’,.

Penny black background

The challenge was to make a Penny black background.  Although it doesn’t make since to have a cat with balloons background at a mouse party….. here it is .  The cat, mice, and sentiment are  from penny black clear sets. The frame is cut from spellbinder nesties and surprise surprise I chalked the marching mice images.

Twine island

The Marks Finest Papers challenge was twine… i thought of sailor knots and sea scenes…but using twine is so bulky…. i guess i need twine practice.  the background is cuttlebuged and  both sentiment and  the island are  Marks Finest Paper stamps from summer mini set  ‘sand between my toes’.   Cute huh?

The design is from Tuesday morning sketches(below) and the theme of  My Time to Craft was delightful dogs and these smARTworks dogs  fit the theme.  I stamped each dog then masked it, then stamped the next on a scrap, die cutcut the dogs and frame with spellbinders nesties.  I added a dog charm and 3 cute paw prints.

Olive garden

I’m trying something I saw at Stampendous booth at the Carson stamp show.. The demonstator used stampendous scene stamps then embossed over the edges… this isn’t embossed just water colored over the edges with twinkling h2o’s… needs more work but i kind of like this attempt .  It’s for Everybody Art challenge – garden, and Party Time Tuesday- Blue Skies and Sunny days.
