Challenge Submissions

Today I have a couple cards to share with you, they were both created with Sweet Pea Stamps images from the Brigid Ashwood's Phunky Phairies line of stamps.

This first card features the Zam, isn't he wild - he looks like he could really take you for a ride. The detail on these images is great, you can see all sorts of coins and goodies flying from his pockets. This was the inspiration for the embellishments.

 This one was entered into the I{heart} to stamp sketch challenge.

My second card today is Remy, also find on the same plate as Zam. Remy is a bit sweeter, still carries a 'stuffy' as my youngest calls them. He just looks like the kid who picks up stuff of the ground all the time and stuffs it all into his pockets. So why not add embellishments that pick up on the same theme?

This card was entered into the Sketch Saturday challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to the Karen Middleton Blog Hop

I am so glad you decided to stop by today. I have a couple cards to share using the Sweet Pea Stamps featured artist, Karen Middleton.

I used a sweet sisterly/best friend image from plate 113 for my first card. It was colored with copics and the papers/flowers are prima. I love this image so much. It reminds me of my two little girls (when they are getting along), so I tried to capture their coloring. 

I entered it into the Everybody Art Challenge sketch.

This fun image can be found on Plate 112 - isn't it the most adorable picture?

It was also colored with copics, prima printed papers and a webster's pages embellishment. It was entered into the Flourishes sketch challenge.

Currently, all full and half sheets in the Karen Middleton Collection are discounted 25%! All orders placed by July 4th will also be entered into a drawing for a $44.44 gift certificate to the Sweet Pea Stamps store.
Your stops along the way include:
Leave a comment at each of the stops to be entered into a drawing for a $15 gift card to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! The drawing will take place next Tuesday - Have a wonderful 4th of July!
