Altered Christmas Ornament with Spectrum Noirs

Hey everyone!
I've got a fun project for you today.
I've altered a wood die-cut Christmas ornaments with 
my Spectrum Noir markers from Crafter's Companion.

I used shades EB1, EB2, EB5 and EB7.

So quick and easy to do and I think it turned out so cute!

Bebunni's Balloons

Happy weekend, y'all!
Hope you have something special to celebrate,
even if it's just the fact that there's no work tomorrow.

But if you don't have a reason, I'll happily give you one --
today is Bebunni release day at Crafter's Companion!
Isn't he adorable?

I chose the set Bebunni Celebration for my sample.
I colored him with my NEW redesigned Spectrum Noir pens
in shades IB1, PP1, PP2, PP3, PP5, CR8, CR11, OR1, and OR2

Can't resist this cutie? 
The line contains a total of 8 different stamp sets,
each one as cute as the last, and there's even a CD Rom
chock full of printable goodies.

I hope you like him as much as I do!

Bundle of Joy

Hey everyone!
Today I've got a sneak peek for ya! 
Crafter's Companion will soon be releasing 
a brand-new line called Bebunni that includes six sets
and features an adorable stuffed bunny rabbit, 
who looks a lot like the stuffed bunny my oldest son 
has slept with since he was 6 months old. 
(He just turned 12, and still sleeps with it, but don't tell!
You'll cramp his style. Shhh!) ;)

This cute little guy was just begging to be paper-pieced,
which gave him some nice texture.
He'll be traveling to Germany to congratulate my
sister-in-law who became a mother last month
when my nephew Paul was born.
I'll be sending a package with some sweet baby goodies,
so this card will get tucked inside.

By the way, have you played along with us at 
The blog has been giving us some trouble this month,
so the challenge is on a brief hiatus while we sort out the kinks,
but to make up for it, we'll be having TWO challenges next month,
so you'll definitely want to play along.
Two challenges = two opportunities to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Have an amazing day!

Lawnscaping Challenge #68

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!

We are being sponsored by the amazing folks
at Lawn Fawn who have generously donated a 
FREE stamp set of the winner's choice.

This week is all about INSPIRATION, or
 if you've jumped onto the craze like I have, PINSPIRATION.
And if you're not following me on Pinterest, you should!
Click on the icon in the sidebar if you'd like to.

On to my card.

Here is my Pinspiration:

And here is my card:

I drew from the color palette, but also the critters and icons
such as leaves, squirrels, acorns, and birds.
I even stamped and colored the owl, but he ended up being
too big and out of balance so I'll save him for something else.

I used Critters In The Burbs, Critters In The Forest, 
Blissful Botanicals, and Harvest Season.

I hope you like it!

Please head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
and check out the other designers amazing work
and don't forget to play along!

Have an awesome day!

Holiday Twinkle Postcard and a GIVEAWAY!

Hello there!
Today I'm excited to be sharing with you another
brand-new release from Crafter's Companion.
This line is called Stamp-It Australia "Twinkle"
and has four awesome sets full of vintagy holiday images.

For my card, I used the Christmas Happiness set,
with this cool reindeer and tree postcard stamp.
I distressed the edges and bent a corner to give it
that beat-up, been-through-the-mail-and-survived kinda look.

I added some black satin ribbon and a couple of snowflake buttons
but didn't have any red gems to use for my centers. 
So I simply pulled out my CR8 Spectrum Noir marker
and colored over some pink ones. Easy peasy!

I hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse into the
Stamp-It Australia "Twinkle" line and will check out 
the entire line in the store.

And by the way, Sunday is the last day to enter my 
1,000+ subscriber YouTube GIVEAWAY.
I'm drawing two winners for two awesome prizes!

Have an awesome weekend!
