White on white at Wags n Whiskers

Hi y’all,

The challenge this week at Wags n Whiskers (WnW) is White on White – no, for a moment there I thought white on white was also WnW (it’s WoW – I know, I’m probably making these acronyoms up).

I love how crisp and elegant white on white can look. But gosh, I have a difficult time photographing white on a white background without it looking washed out.

I used the cute Gemma and Bella Spring Fun from Wags n Whiskers. There is one with a dog on it too – Furry Friends. Too cute!

Anyhow, one random participant will win a Free Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber stamp! You don’t need to use a WnW image on your project to enter the challenge, but if you do, you will be entered into a 2nd drawing for a Free Wags ‘n Whiskers Digital Stamp!! Two chances to win!! If you are in need of a WnW design, click here for Rubber stamps, and here for Digis!

Have fun with your WoW at WnW!! (ha – had to put that somewhere)


Party Animal Resting …

Hello everyone,

I’m glad to be posting again for Crafter’s Companion – this time as a member of the Crafter’s Companion 2012 design team. For my new readers, I was guest designer for the month of December and I enjoyed working with this team so much, Denise and Trena invited me back as part of the regular crew!  Thanks for the opportunity ladies.

This week, I get to work with the newest release, Strawberry Kisses. Such stink’in cute little kitten images – no surprise though if you have seen Popcorn the Bear, Humpfrey the elephant and SWALK – those are my favorite Crafter’s Companion images, but how could you go wrong with any Crafter’s Companion’s images if you are after cute images!!

Well here is my card:

That’s how I felt after our New Years Eve party. This Party Animal image is amazing and oh so fun to color. This is such a super easy card to make – I colored her using alcohol based markers with my light source primarily from the front of her shoe and adhere her to the card base. Then I framed her using a popped up negative diecut and embellished her with some twine.

Check out more Strawberry Kisses inspiration from the rest of my design team over the next few days! You can buy them from Crafter’s Companion today!
