Mo's Challenge # 170

Lace and Ribbon!

Actually, Mo's Challenge this week is to use either  lace, ribbon, or both on your card or project.
 I chose to use both as I think they go beautifully together.

Isn't this a fun image? She makes me smile just looking at her! Love the look on the
 Boston Terrier's face, too!

Images: "So Funny" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment from TLC

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Tacky tape, Needle and thread,  Cuttlebug 
with Cheery Lynn corner die

Papers: SU! Raspberry, Neenah white, PTI white, SU! DP

Embellishment: Grosgrain ribbon, Ruffled lace, Corduroy brads, Flower brad, Tiny pearl cabochons

Join the fun in Mo's Challenge this week for a chance to win a 
$5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil! She's been drawing up a storm lately, 
so there are a lot of new images available for you to choose from!

It's always nice to have you stop by!

Mo's Challenge #169

 Valentine Boxes

I made these boxes for our granddaughter to give to her classmates on Valentine's Day.
They measure 2 1/2" square and are 1 1/4" deep...just big enough to hold a few candy treats!
They are fairly easy to make, but time-consuming when making 17 of them!
I punched out the different elements, and she decorated them herself.
The directions for the box are here, but I used a 7" square for the top and 6 3/4" square for the bottom of the box.

Paper: Recollections DP

Tools: MS Bird and Heart punches, McGill Envelope punch, Tiny heart punch

Embellishments: Roses from Wild Orchid

 Embossing....Wet or Dry!

Mo's Challenge this week is to make a card or project using 
one of Mo's fabulous images and embossing using either the wet or dry technique.
 I've chosen to use dry embossing on this card.

I love this image and can't believe I haven't used it before! 
The little matching origami box  is one of several I'm making for 
our granddaughter to giveto her classmates on Valentine's Day. 
They will have a few little treats inside.

This is another view which shows a bit of the shine from the Spica pen I used 
to highlight her boa and tiara.

Inside: "Wishing you the best of everything on your special day!"

Images: "Diva" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Spica pens, MS Lace border punch, Cuttlebug with 
embossing folder, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Mambo Melon &Turquoise, Recollections DP, Neenah white,
 PTI white (card base)

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Prima flowers, White mini brads

I hope you'll join us in Mo's Challenge this week for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Store. She has so many great new images for you!

I always love it when you stop in!

Good luck!

Rick's Sparkle and Glitter Challenge

New Beginnings!

The idea for this challenge is anything new...a new design, color combination, technique, etc. , 
or you can do as I did and make a card or project to celebrate someone's new beginning. 
In this case it's a new home.

This card uses Rick St. Dennis' pretty "Three Chimney Cottage", one of several pretty images in a series inspired by the lovely English countryside.

The color combination is a bit off-beat, but I really like it! I picked up the colors I used in the image.

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug with embossing folders And Nestie die,  SU! Ribbon slot punch, Martha Stewart Lace border punch

Papers: SU! Gray, Garden Green, More Mustard, and Vanilla CS, Neenah smooth white (for image)

Embellishments: Satin ribbon

Enter Rick's Challenge for a chance to win!
Prize details are on the Challenge blog!

Thanks for stopping in!
