Reveal day for the Card Chain Challenge!
I get a kick out of the text print paper- it's from Ann of Green Gables!
This was the first chance I had to play with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics set.
Welcome back to another challenge with Eureka Stamps! This week we've got a color theme for you, and it's one you probably associate with Halloween: purple and orange. I wanted to go in a different direction, so I started out by digging through my stash of patterned papers to see what I could find. I came up with a nice floral print, an orange polka dot and a light peach color. Here's my card:
The sentiment I used is called As You Continually Look from Eureka. I printed it off in purple on peach paper. Some Glossy Accents were added to the centers of the daisies and some hand drawn stitching around my sentiment, along with some subtle inking.
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out-I never would have tried this color combination if it hadn't been for this challenge and that's why I love challenges so much! I really think stepping outside our comfort zone really makes us grow and often times we end up surprising ourselves. So I encourage you to join us at Eureka this week and maybe try something other than a Halloween card using purple and orange together! We'll see you there!
Sketchy Colors: Orange/Purple
Word Art Wednesay: Anything Goes
Eureka and QKR have teamed up to bring you a blog hop! You can get the entire hop list over on the Eureka post-just in case you get lost. We are doing anything goes for our challenge and you have 2 weeks to color up an image from either QKR or Eureka and make a project to join us in this challenge. Remember, for this challenge only, we are REQUIRING that you use either a QKR image or a Eureka image.
I decided to make a bookmark for a friend using this Waterfall Border image from the Eureka store. The back side has a scripture verse on it.
Make sure you comment on each blog along the hop you could be the lucky winner of 2 extra images, just for commenting. Thanks so much for stopping by! Now hop on over to Susanne Rose's blog - http://clayscrapkreativ.blogspot.de/2014/08/qkr-stampede-blog-hop.html.

This is my second project as guest designer for the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog, and this time around our theme is "Scheming Crafters" which means you can use any color scheme that inspires you. This challenge is open until August 3, and is sponsored by:
My color scheme choice was black and white, and I'm using Rose & Thistle Frame by Delicious Doodles (available from Stitchy Bear).
I used only black and white cardstock,Simply adorned with lace and some sewing-I used straight stitching around the frame and a decorative stitch across the black cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you'll join all the scheming crafters over at Love to Scrap!
Welcome to another Eureka challenge: this time it's using lace & pearls.
I always think of tea parties when I think of lace and pearls so I had to do a tea theme!
I'm using Eureka's Tea Cup and Tea Time .
I used Copics, Perfect Pearls and a glitter pen to color the teacup.
The cup is open at the top so I can slip in a tea bag.

This is my last post for Pinspirational Challenges. It's hard to believe I've already been on the team for six months! It's been a lot of fun, but I think it's time to focus on some other projects for a while. On with the challenge...
This is a very sweet picture, and it would have been fun to do something with fairy wings but I'm not sure I'm up to that challenge. I'm not quite sure how to capture the iridescence. If any of you fellow crafters have tips you'd like to share, I'd love to hear!
Our sponsors this week are:
And onto my project...I'm using princess dress card from Creations by AR.
I had to go with springy colors inspired by the picture on this one, so I started off with a blue base for the skirt, adding rows of lace and a stitched hem along the bottom. I chose a floral print for the top from a 6x6 pad from Authentique's Seasons Essentials.(I love that these smaller pads are scaled to a more appropriate size for cards and small projects. I think I've been buying more of those lately than the larger 12x12 sheets.) I used a Martha Stewart punch- Eyelet Lace (or part of it) for the lace details around the neckline and sleeves. Then I added a bit of ribbon, pearls and a bow around the waist, and some pink pearls to the lace. I changed the style of the hat a bit by widening the brim. Then I added a pearl necklace with Perfect Pearls.
I had so much fun with this one that I put together another one...
I love how the lace on the hat turned out on this one.
Then I did another...
Reminds me of playing with paper dolls! I think these will be so cute to use as place cards for a tea party, so that's my plan. Hope you'll get a chance to play along this week at Pinspirational Challenges #104!
