Welcome to another great challenge at PAPER PLAYTIME! We are so glad you are joining us for our AUGUST STAMPING MONDAY CHALLENGE! Our theme for this challenge is VACATION.

How to play along: Make a project with the theme of VACATION using a Stamped or Digi Image/Sentiment. Easy Peasy! So for all you Cricut Lovers out there – you can still play along by adding a STAMPED sentiment. And for all you DIGI Lovers out there – use any Digi image or STAMPED sentiment on your project.

This to That Tuesday Challenge #2~ The Digi Bistro

Hi everyone!
I am super excited to share my very first project as The Digi Bistro's DT member.

This weeks This to That Tuesday Challenge was to make a Side Step card using one of Cher's super adorable SVG file.
And for the Prize~~ we will be giving away three gift certificates to three lucky winners. The winners will receive gift certificates in the following amounts
1st Prize – $15,
2nd Prize - $10,
and the
3rd Prize $5.
You’ll have a chance to take one of these gift certificates and use it at The Digi Bistro store to purchase any SVG set of your choice.

I chose to make my side step with the Simply Tweet file.
I used a tutorial I found over at Splitcoaststampers and
here is my card!
Cher's files are just LOADED with so many super cute cuts!!
I used lots of scrap paper for my cuts (still trying to unload the mass amount I have)
All my cuts were then inked around the edges using Pigment ink in a variety of matching colors.
I used 2 brads for the sentiment, googly eyes for the birds and pearls for the flowers.
I'm not sure the picture shows this but I painted the butterflies with Creative Inspirations Paint in Winter Frost. This paint adds such a beautiful sparkle to the butterflies.
This was such a fun card to make and I hope you will play along!
Now, I guess you'll want to know how you can become one of our lucky winners? It’s easy – create a step card just like I have done. Remember you must play along to win!

Just For You~ Simple Stampin Up Inspired Cards

Good Morning Bloggers!

I have a quick and very easy Stampin up card set I made to share.
This is not my idea...I actually got it from when I was organizing my stamps and searching for ideas.

I used Stampin Up ink~
Orchid Opulence
Mellow Moss
Real Red
Positively Pink

The Painted Garden Stamp set

My sentiment was a dollar bin find that just fit perfectly :)

Since this was such an easy project I ended up stamping 20 cards in a matter of minutes!!!

Now I have a stash of "just for you" cards for those last minute thank yous and such!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

"Three Times a Charm"~ Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #19

Hi everyone!
It is time for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!
Our fellow DT member Amber~ Staying Crafty chose this weeks challenge....which is
 "Three Times a Charm". We were to create a project using 3 cuts, 3 colors only and 3 of the same embellishments.
When I read the challenge requirement I thought "hey this doesn't sound to difficult" but when I sat down to create I was stumped!
I ended up going through all my stamps and found a dollar bin one that is the inspiration for my card.

Ok so I had this stamp and I knew there was a cut on the Preserves Cartridge with a pear on it but when I looked at the booklet there are 3 cuts per pear so I got out my handy dandy gypsy and began playing with the two base cuts.
I was able after much manipulation weld the bottom layer and the next layer. Tada...all I had to do was cut the top layer out twice and I had my pear cut ~~I actually cheated and made 4 cuts..but don't tell anyone :)
I did pop one of the top layers up to give it some dimension.
Alittle inking around the layers also...I just love how it adds so much more to a cut.
My color choice for this was brown, green and pink. Love those colors together and the pattern paper was perfect for this...brown with pink stripes
I embellished with 3 glittery brads and stamped my sentiment with brown memento ink.

Ok so I hope I have inspired you to create a project for this weeks challenge.
There is a great prize for the winner....
The Nursery Rhymes Cartridge.
Remember you have 2 weeks to enter...plenty of time to create!
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you all over at Whimsical Wednesday!

Have a Fun~Shine Day w/Deacon ~~~ A few Challenges Too :)

Good Morning Bloggers!
I have another card to share today...this one using Deacon Bugs from Bugaboo Stamps.
Isn't he just the cutest?

I made this card with a few challenges in mind...
ICopic #43~ Orange and Blue
Totally Stampalicious~ 1 circle, 1 square and 1 rectangle
The Kraft Journal~ Anything Goes

Ok so for my card I used Kraft cardstock for the base of the card.
The pattern paper is from Me and My Big Ideas~ Boy Stack
The Stamp sentiment is from BugBites~ All Year Round
and the image is colored with my copics
These one to be exact :)
The one thing I did not use for this card is my white gel pen! OMG you say...
I know when the card was coming together it did just that! Came together without my pen in sight.
I almost grabbed it but thought to myself...I can do it...I can do it....WITHOUT the white doodles! LOL.
There is always next time right?!?!?

Anyways I am really loving how this turned out and I even learned a new technique...
cutting out a digital image with my SCAL program.
My fellow DT'er Melanie over at In Love with a Bug did an amazing tutorial on this and I have wanted to give it a try....well I did and I LOVE how Deacon turned out...cut in the circle shape!

So there you have it...Hope you like my card and you all
"Have A Fun~Shine Day"

Sending You Birthday Wishes~ Challenge Card and A Halloween Card

Hi everyone!
I had a card all ready to post yesterday and I got too tired so I am posting double today.

The first one I made for two challenges:
The Ribbon Girl~ use ribbon
Birthday Sundaes~All about the Brads

OK so my card is a shape card using George and Basic Shapes Cartridge and welded on my gypsy.
The balloons are from Simply Charmed cut at 3.5" and I used the shadow feature as well.
I added the PKS faces~ Everyday Character and Simple Sallies.
I colored my own ribbon again using my copics and BV08 and R85.
I know the picture is not the greatest but the card base as well as the sentiment mat and ribbon are all purple and are all the same color.
So the sentiment is actually a dollar bin find that seemed to fit too good with my balloons :)
A little twine on the balloons, 3 purple brads, some white gel pen doodles and a paper clip to hold the sentiment and my card is complete!

So here is my second card.
I picked up this cute pumpkin die at the store the other day on clearance and of course had to give it a try :)

Cute little pumpkins....a very simple card using Cloud 9 Season Paper Stack and Fiskars Halloween Night sentiment.
I added more white gel pen doodles on my pumpkins and popped up the middle one for some dimension.

So thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by tomorrow for another Paper Playtime challenge
 and a new Whimsical Wednesday challenge on Wednesday.

Have a GREAT night :)

D2D~Stitched Pumpkin Card w/Bugbite's All Year Round Sentiment

Hi everyone!
I completed another challenge for D2D with this weeks freebie~ stitched pumpkins.

For this card instead of coloring with my copics I decided to do alittle paper piecing.

The paper is from Cloud 9~ Seasonal Stack
Recollections primary color pack and scraps from my stash
The image is from Designed 2 Delight
The sentiment is from Bugbites~ All Year Round.
I also added some foam dimensions to the pumpkin and the leaf...not sure if the picture shows it too well.
Oh yeah the background stamp is from a Stampin Up set that I had (most of the stampin up stamps that I have are not grouped by name so I don't know what set they come from...that's the way I got them)

Well that is all I have for tonight...thanks for stopping by and have a great night!
See you all tomorrow :)

Back to School Gift Bag~~ For a few Challenges :)

Hi everyone!!
I had some free time without the kiddo's around today to get some back to school crafting done.
Usually I have one or both kids asking for stamps to be printed to colored...or can we stamp with your stamps..or what can we make now. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE having them around when I am making cards and such but what could take me 2 hours from start to finish can take me all day :)
So anyways both boys had play dates today so I made a Back to School gift bag.
I made this bag with a few challenges is mind but it is not 100% complete. I am stuck as to what to put on the handles.
I am not good with tying bows so every ribbon I placed on the handles didn't look HELP...suggestions welcomed please!

Ok so my bag was on I had laying around from the Dollar Store.
I used DCVW~Grade School Paper Stack as well as recollections primary color papers.
The apple was cut from Making the Grade Cartridge~one I have never used and one that is also retired. It was cut at 5 1/2" with both the shadow and top layer. I cut 2 additional apples to change the stem and leaf colors also.
I tried something new today...I used glitter and lots of it for the apple. I had never used glitter like this before and it was both messy and ended up all over the place. I used glue but I know I have read about people using their Xeron machine....mine is just not big enough so I did it the old fashion way!!
My worm is from Create a Critter and he is cut at 3 1/2". I hid the face so I could stamp a PK face on him. Way cute...don't you think?
Oh and the #1 Teacher is also from Making the Grade Cartridge.

So this gift bag is being entered into the following challenges:
Cropstop~ #32 Back to School
Creative Cutter Room~ Back to School
Throwback Thursday~My Creative Time~ #230 Retired Cartridge
Fantabulous Cricut~Challenge Me Monday~ Add a Bug
Die Cutting Diva's~Challenge #27~ Fruits/Vegetable
Craft Junkie Too ~Linky Party #20

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night!

Besties Always

Hi everyone!
I have a quick card to share with is past my bedtime so sorry for the shortness :)
I posted yesterday about coloring my own ribbon...well I did it again!
I just LOVE how it turns out and I have a perfect match for my card.
I used Bugaboo's Deacon for this card and colored him with my copics.
I colored the ribbon with the same blue and green as in the digi.
I totally scrap lifted the flower embellishment idea from Tara over at Homemade Happiness~ I won a bunch of them from her not too long ago and fell in love with them. So I found the cuttlebug dies and made some of my own!
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper~Pinka-licious.

I am entering this into the following Challenges:
More than Favors~ Wacky Wednesday #47 Friendship

I hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by.
Have a GREAT night!!

School Days~ A Shape Card for a few Challenges :)

Hi Everyone!
I have a card to share with you that I made with a couple of challenge in mind.
School is back in session for some....we still have 4 more weeks left till school starts here but all the back to school prep going on, and the numerous challenges out there I though my card would be school geared.

The School House shape card is actually an SVG file that I have had but never used. Usually I make sure I know where it came from to give credit back to the designer but for some reason I have no clue :(

I do have to say that after watching a tutorial yesterday on coloring your own ribbon I had to give it a try and I LOVE how it comes out!!
I used white grosgrain ribbon and my copics. How fun is that!
Now I will always have matching ribbon!!

The little school children are from PDDU which is a cart I have not used in forever! I cut them out at 1.6" and cut their heads off (oh that sounded so bad!) Their faces were stamped with Peachy Keen Simple Sallies.
Since I cut them in white I colored their faces again with my copic marker to look skin toned.

And lastly the sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe~ School Years file.

So I am entering this into the following Challenges:
Scrapbookaholic by Abby~Challenge #11 Back to School
Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge~ Let's Face it Friday~ Shape Card
Paper Cutz Challenge~#103 School Days 1,2,3
Kimberli's Creations~  Using and Old Cart
Celebrate the Occasion~ #25 Back to School
My Sheri Crafts~ #66 Back to School
Queen of My Craftroom~ Back to School
Capture the Moment~ Make it Monday Copic Striped Ribbon

Hope you like my project for today. Thanks for stopping by and see you all tomorrow :)

Birthday Card for Birthday Sundaes: Challenge #21~ Another Bugaboo Image

Hi Everyone!
It is Sunday and usually we have something planned...some sort of job around the house to get done but today is a LAZY day~ at least for me and I have been crafting all day.
Most of what I have been doing is DT work that I cant share at the moment but I did squeeze in some time to make a challenge card.
I know...Halloween is a ways away but I just love this skelekinz~Birthday digi from Bugaboo.
I colored her with my copics (I think my cricut is copics have been getting tons of love lately) and layered her on a new paper stack I just picked up at Joanne's.
Cloud 9 Designs~Seasonal Stack.
The entire pack is Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas paper.
I stamped the "boo" with Fiskars Halloween Night Stamp Set
and the "birthday girl" with MPS Pinka-licious Stamp Set.
I added some homemade skittles and distressed the papers with my Tim Holtz paper distresser.

So there you have it...
I will enter this into the following Challenges:
Birthday Sundae's~ Challenge #21
Catch the Bug Challenge~ Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night!!

A "Fishy" Birthday and a Challenge Reminder

Hi everyone!

Today is my father-in-laws birthday and to celebrate we had him and my mother-in-law over for his favorite meal~pizza and ice cream cake :)

We couldn't just give him his birthday present without a card so my oldest son and I made this card for him
He is a big fisherman~ spending every night out on the water when they are down at their cottage.
He loves to then come and tell my boys all his fish stories which they LOVE!!
He even said if he catches the "BIG" one it will be mounted and hung in the cottage.
To help along with his fishing of course we bought him some more gear.
Hey you never know right?!?!

Well my card is made with all scraps :)
The fish is from Create a Critter and he is on an Action Wobble
I did add some coral in the background which is kinda hard to see all of it in the picture and I had these clear gems that I added to look like bubbles.
Of course I used my gel pen~~I swear I can not live without it!!

We had a blast making this together and "Bajah"~ what my kids call their grandfather  loved his card.

Thats all I have for tonight but before I go please make sure you go over and visit Karen over at
Karen-Kakes-Krafts..... she is having a LO challenge that is only open for a few more days.
The prize~~ a your story bundle :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night :)

Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge #17~~ Humor LOL!!

Morning Bloggers!!

It is time again for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge.
Ready for this one....Challenge #17 is...
"Sense of Humor"
For this challenge you must include something funny, whether a funny photo or image and/or include some wording related to humor such as laugh, giggle, chuckle, funny, hysterical.
You get the picture...right. Lets make the DT laugh :)

So alittle background before I share my LO.
I posted awhile back about going to a birthday party with my son and the party having Nickle City Reptiles as their entertainment.
Not only do the kids LOVE seeing all the animals that Jeff brings...the adults LOVE listening to how funny Jeff is.
I attached a video link so you can see a small glimpse at how funny Jeff is.
He goes around locally and does birthday parties, the fair and school events~~ BUT~~ he also is a pretty regular Late Night with Jimmy Fallon guest.

Cool for my LO I did one of "Rockey" ~  the American Alligator
When Jeff brought Rockey out it was not funny :)
The kids were excited but screamed also. Not many of us get to see an alligator up close.

It just so happened that Rockey was in the mood to perform that day.
Doesn't it look like he is smiling?
The letters were cut with my cricut from Cuttin' Up and I added some white gel pen doodles

This picture cracks me up...LOL.. it really looks like he is laughing :)

Crazy that Jeff was able to put Rockey on his back and tickle him....actually I think he was just rubbing his belly but it looks like he is being tickled.

I added a couple of info circles as my journaling using my 2" circle punch.
I inked around the outside with coffee bean pigment ink.
The rub ons are from DCVW~ Safari Kids

Here is my alligator from Create a Critter. He is too cute not to put on this.
I embossed him with my Tiny Mosaic cuttlebug folder.

So there you have it :)
Do you think this is funny?!?!
Hope so and hope you will join us this week over at Whimsical Wednesdays  for our "Sense of Humor" challenge.

Another Christmas Card~ Knobby Knee Christmas Wagon Bugaboo

Hi Bloggers!
I am on a roll with these super cute Bugaboo Digi's.
Here is another Christmas card I made featuring Knobby Knees Christmas Wagon Digi from Bugaboo.
Isnt he just so cute?!?!?

He was colored with my copics.
I added some stickles to his hat and alittle gel pen doodles. I love the way the gel pen adds just that extra little something :)

I did enter this over at CDAC for BUGWW#12
Bugaboo Wacky Wednesday Challenge #12.
It was my first time over there and entering so hopefully I did it correctly.

So I think my cricut is feeling alittle neglected so hop back tomorrow for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and see you all tomorrow :)
