Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you all have been having a good week!! Today is a busy day for me in blogland....this is my second post of the day... If you are here for the Whimsy Weekly Wednesday Give away or would like to win some free stamp samples, scroll down to the next post.  Hurry....this chance it only available for 24 hours!!

Today I have  a couple projects to share with you for a few different challenges.
First, is this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge... This week the team is challenging you to create a card or project with a recipe (3 buttons, 2 designer papers, and 1 ribbon)

Here is my take on this week's challenge:

 For my gift set I used Dreamy Willow with flowers from Whiff of Joy.  The designer paper is from the Prima Sparkling Spring Collections.  The card is cut out with the Spellbinders Labels 20 die. I colored the image with copics and paper pieced the dreses.  I added gold stitching which you can see if you click on the photo.  The buttons are SU Corduroy Baja Breeze buttons.  The panel behind the image is embossed with the SU Lattice Squares folder.  All of the gold paper is gold glitter CS from American Crafts.
I also created a matching easter basket with the same Dreamy Willow with Flowers stamp and Prima Sparkling Spring paper.  The sentiment is computer generated.

  • For more inspiration for the Whiff of Joy Challenge with the "Recipe" challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
    Anne Chelsea,  Gio, Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele To join our challenge, please link your creation here.

    challenges I am entering this creation in:

  • **********************
    My next creation is for both the Creative Belli and the Your Next Stamp Challenge since both challenges involved stitching!!
    This week's Your Next Stamp challenge  hostess is me, myself and I. I am challenging you to use texture on your creations (add felt, lace (but not just lace), dry embossing, stitching, etc.)
    This week's Creative Belli Challenge is Easter related: Bunnies and Eggs
    Here is my creation for these challenges using Your Next Stamps Fhiona's Easter Basket. The image is colored with copics.  Since the challenge over at YNS was texture, I added lots of dry embossing.  The background is embossed with SU Tulip border folder.  The basket on the image is embossed with the Stampin Up Lattice Squares. The dp is Prima Sparkling Spring.
    For more inspiration for the YNS "Texture It" challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
      Karen, Crystal , Kerri ,   Simonne, Beth, Maureen, Jenny, Dana, Diana

      and Wendy 

    We've decided to change the way we do prizes.  From now Karen will be giving away a stamp set to a random winner!  The prize for this challenge is Football Dude.

    Isn't he so fun?!  So why not join us for a chance to win!!
