Liebster Blog Award

I was surprised to receive this award from Christine, . Thank you! I am honored

The LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD is used to show appreciation of smaller blogs (under 200 followers) and to help spread readership and joy.
As part of the tradition, the award is to be passed along to five other blogs that have motivated and inspired me.
It comes from the German meaning Dearest or Beloved, but can also mean Favorite.

To accept the Award you must:
1. Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you, and thank them.
2. Post on your blog.
3. Give to five other Bloggers who you appreciate and value.
4. Leave a comment on the five blogs you choose and let them know.
Now comes the hard part. It is very hard to choose just five, but the ladies that I have chosen, are very talented, and I do believe that they most certainly deserve more followers:
1.  Alison -
2.  Regan -
3.  Rachelle -
4.  Robin -
5.  Candy -
Please leave a comment if you accept your award.

Tie One On with Sassy Studio Designs

Happy Friday everyone.  Sassy Studio Designs has another Fabulous Friday Freebie for you on Paper Craft Planet.  As you know, SSD gives away a sassy new image every Friday to all the followers on PCP.  The challenge today is Tie One On.  That means you have to tie something whether it be ribbon, twine, whatever.

I colored the image with Copics.  The stockings were there but I drew on the fishnets.  My sister was my inspiration for that.  Not the way you are thinking!  She had drawn some on one of her projects a few weeks ago.  I added glitter to the shoes and to the flourishes.  The background paper is from Stampin' Up!  I shaded the martini glass and added crystal effects to it for a more glassy look.  I absolutely love the way the olives turned out.  It is the little things that make me happy.

Please head over to PCP and get your freebie now.  It will only be available for 24 hours.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Dimensional Tiddly Inks - Corrosive Challenge #143

Welcome to another awesome Corrosive Challenge Blog challenge.  We are sponsored by Tiddly Inks and the challenge is Another Dimension.  We would like you to add dimension to your project.  This was an easy one for me.  I just about always lift something up somewhere on everything I make.  I love the way it looks.

I started with Cave Folks from Tiddly Inks.  I colored both images with Copics.  I did the female on X-Press paper and the male on shrinky dink paper.  I cut the female out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  I cut the male out along with a bone and shrank them.  I added jump rings and hung them off the bow.  The background paper is actually some left over tissue paper.  The rest of the paper is generic, as is the ribbon. 

Please head over to the Corrosive Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has done for your inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by.

Wonder Regan

Welcome to another Sassy Studio Designs Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge.  Today's challenge is to use Kraft cardstock on your project.  For my project I chose Wonder Regan which is one of the new fan inspired images just released on Saturday.  She was named after the fan who suggested her which happened to be my good friend and fellow DT member Regan.  What a super idea.  I absolutely love this image.

I colored Wonder Regan with Copic markers and cut her out.  I added some Martha Stewart glitter glue (still have lots of issues with it but I am determined to use it up) for a little sparkle.  The base of my card is Kraft cardstock.  The rest of my papers are generic.  I found a wonderful pack of super hero die cuts from Creative Imaginations.  There were so many in the package that I have enough left for at least two scrapbook pages...score!  The clear star is from K&Co.

Please head over to Sassy Studio Designs and check out what the other Design Team members created for your inspiration.  Then join in the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.

SSD FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop

It is now time for the long awaited Sassy Studio Designs FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop.  If you came here from the amazing Wonder Regan's blog, you are on the right track.  If you started here, the full hop list is below so you can get back on track.  As you know, Sassy Studio Designs asked you, the FANS, what images you would like to see.  Everything you see during this hop was inspired by the FANS that suggested them. 

I am happy to present Bonnie of the Nile.  This was suggested by...Bonnie of course.  I think this is my new all-time favorite SSD image.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  The mat behind her is metal and I ran it through my BigShot with and embossing folder.  The background paper is from Heart of Wisdom.  I love Egytian things.  This was so much fun.

Now down to business.  The theme of our FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop is "Who is your celebrity Valentine?"  We will tell you, then you tell us.  If you do, your name will go in the hopper for some free images.  All the details are on the SSD blog.  We will also give away images for commenting on our DT blogs.  Just leave us love as you hop, then tell us on SSD who your celebrity Valentine is.  We are also looking for a guest designer for next month.  Please enter your name on the SSD blog if you are interested.  You get free images, make new friends and have lots of fun.

 Here is my celebrity Valentine:

Yum, yum, yum.  For those of you who don't know him, this is Jared Padalecki from Supernatural.  He is hot, hot, hot!!!!  He also has a beautiful smile.  That is what initially caught my attention.  He is so cute when he smiles, you can't help but smile back.  I thought you might prefer seeing these pictures instead of his smile though.  I would ask you not to tell my hubby about him but he already knows.  Every weekend we watch Supernatural together.  He thinks it is funny as I am just a wee bit too old for Jared. 

Your next stop on the hop is our guest designer for this month and also my sister (no nepotism here, I did not vote), Robin.  It is so much fun having her on the team this month.  Please head over and check out her Valentine.  One more thing before you go.  We will be having a Party Chat with the Design Team at 10:00 pm on SSD blog.  Join us won't you?  Here is the full hop order:

Rebecca - this is me!!!

Strange Love

Hi everyone.  Today's Fabulous Friday Freebie from Sassy Studio Designs is Little Honey Devil Debbie.  If you follow SSD you know that every Friday we give away a free image to all our followers on Paper Craft Planet.  Head on over to PCP and get yours now.  The challenge this week is Strange Love.  That can be a strange sentiment, strange paper, anything non-traditional that expresses love. 

I colored Devil Debbie with Copics then popped her up with SU dimensionals.  I made this card for my hubby.  If you follow me, you know I have five parrots.  I always try to incorporate a bird on cards I make for him.  I found these cute parrot stickers at Pat Catan's and I just had to use them.  This will be hubby's Valentine from me and our feathered babies.  That is my take on strange love.

Don't forget that we have our FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop Saturday on the main SSD blog (not PCP).  Thanks for stopping by.


Release Day with Betty Munster

Release day for Simply B Stamps has finally arrived!  Whoot Whoot!!!!  The last image left to show you is Betty Munster.  I love love love this image.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  I used more of the DCWV La Creme paper stack that I have been making my current mini album with.  This will be the top part of a waterfall flip section in my book.  I have managed to use each of the 7 images this week in my book.  That was my goal.

Please head over to Simply B Stamps and check out what the rest of the design team has created.  Betty has some specials listed so make sure you read everything so you can save when you order your images. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Chris Munster

Here is Chris Munster from Simply B Stamps.  As you know, Betty likes to do images of her family as different characters.  Today, she turned her hubby Chris into Herman Munster.  So cute.  I colored Chris with copics and added him to this cute little bag I found at the craft store.  I dressed the bag up with papers from DCWV and added a tag inside the bag.  This will be another entry into my current scrapbook.  This new release from Simply B Stamps has given me quite a few things for my scrapbook this week.  It is still far from finished but closer everyday.

Please hop over to SBS and see what the others have done with Chris Munster.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Rio!!!

Welcome back for another awesome preview from Simply B Stamps.  If you came here from the amazing Lelia's blog you are headed in the right direction.  Today is an extra special preview.  This image is Birthday Rio and she is named after Betty's daughter Rio.  Today is Rio's actual birthday so Simply B Stamps is holding a blog hop in Miss Rio's honor.  Happy Birthday Rio!

I colored Birthday Rio with Copics.  I added some glitter glue here and there plus some Diamond Glaze on her glasses.  The ribbon is generic.  I also used MS around the page punches.

Please leave Miss Rio birthday wishes on the Simply B Stamps blog.  I believe she turned 14 today and she is the pride and joy of our Queen Betty.  Your next stop is the super talented Suzi.  Here is the entire hop order in case you stumbled upon this hop accidentally.

Miller Munster

Today Simply B Stamps brings you Miller Munster.  Miller has taken on the persona of Eddie Munster.  I colored him with Copics and added him to a flap in my current scrapbook.  I will be going back and embellishing this more later after I finish the basics of the pages.  I am loving the way it is headed so far.  I wasn't sure these elegant papers would go well with such fun images but I think they balance each other out.  Once the rest of the embellies get on the pages, it should be really nice.

Please head over to Simply B Stamps and check out what the rest of the design team has created.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Confetti London

We have another fabulous preview today.  This is Confetti London from Simply B Stamps.  She looks like she is having a lot of fun.  I cut the image down a bit to fit on my scrapbook page.  I still have some more embellishing to do after I get the book together.  I may have colored this a bit too bright but the extra embellies I put on later will bring it all together I think (I hope).

I used Copics to color London and all the papers are from DCWV.  It is a beautiful pack called La Creme.  As I said the other day, it was my mother's favorite pack of paper.  I hope this mini album will be gorgeous when I am finished. 

Please head over to Simply B Stamps to see what the rest of the design team has created.  Thanks for stopping by.

Love Bites!

This is my kind of challenge.  The Corrosive Challenge is sponsored by Tiddly Inks for this "Love Bites" challenge.  We ask that you create whatever Love Bites means to you.  Being the vampire lover that I am, I went literal with this challenge.  I am using Vamp Me from Tiddly Inks.  Isn't this an awesome image? 

I colored Vamp Me with Copics.  The background paper is from Stampin' Up.  The heart die cuts were made using an embosslit from SU.  This card is perfect for most of the women in my family.  We are all True Blood & Twilight fans.  I am not sure who I will send this too though.  I will have to put some real thought into it. 

Please head over to The Corrosive Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Then join in the challenge.  This is a fun one!

Thanks for stopping by.


Party Lola

Day 2 from Simply B Stamps brings us Party Lola.  She is absolutely adorable.  I started a new mini album yesterday and I plan on putting all of the images from this new SBS release in my book.  I am trying to go out of my comfort zone a bit.  I usually make my colors as intense as possible.  I thought I would try to make Lola a bit softer and use some pastel shades.  I think she came out pretty good but I do miss the bright colors.

Here is a close up of Lola.

You can't really see it well but there is a bow next to her that matches the paper under her.  It doesn't blend in this much when you see it in person.  Please head over to Simply B Stamps and see what the others have created.  Keep coming back.  We have previews all week just before the release.

Thanks for stopping by.

Puglsy Christian

Guess what!  It's time to start previews for another fabulous Simply Betty Stamps release!!!  We are starting it off with Pugsly Christian.  Such a cutie pie.  I colored him with Copics and attached him to a library pocket (I think that is what it is called) for my scrapbook.  The awesome scull embellishment is from Jolee.  Love it!  The designer paper is from DCWV.  It was my mother's favorite paper pack.  I just started this mini while thinking of her.  I am hoping to do a video of it when I am finished.  Sorry the picture is so blurry.  I tried cleaning it up but it still looks a little fuzzy.  I am having issues taking pictures.

Please head over to Simply Betty Stamps and see what the others have created and please come back tomorrow.  There will be more.

Thanks for stopping by.
