Winner - Digital Delights Blogoversary Hop

Hi! Thanks for everyone who hopped along for the Digital Delights Blogoversary! I just wanted to let you know that my winner of the Cupcake Timmy image is KATIE! Yay! I've sent you an email. If you didn't win, and you've got to have your own Timmy, just head over to Digital Delights and you can get your own.

Mini Book




I had time to put together a mini-book for the challenge at Cuttlebug Spot. Luckily, I had embossed a few sheets of white paper, that I brought with me - otherwise, I would not have been able to play along.
For my pages, I alternated stamping (with great stamps from Layers of Color) and using a punch from Kreaxions.
Challenges:
Cuttlebug Spot - mini-book
OSAAT- black and white plus one
Fussy and Fancy - Pink and black

Another new Maggie card



I have another beach-made creation to share with you. I love this card and promise, I will take good pictures when I get home, but for now, at least I can share it with you. I really love all of the stamps that were in the summer club, and being at the beach, was the perfect inspiration to use them.
I really have fun making easel cards - but I've never tried a shaped one, but I thought an anchor would be perfect. My sparkly punched border was made using one of my Kreaxions punches.
Today is my last full day at the beach - it has been great!
Challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room: 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 die cuts
Crafty Cardmakers: easel card
Alota - glitter and pearls
Bunny Zoe's - summer days
Crafty Pad - vintage

For my card, I used this really cute stamp from Stampavie. My papers are Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey (another line I loooove!)

Fun in the Sun


OK, I'll admit it - I am addicted to making cards! I'm at the beach, without my computer, without most of my crafting supplies, without photo editing software, and yet - I really had to make a card! I saw this great challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites to make a Free-standing pop-up card - and I've never made one! So I had to do it, right? Luckily for me, there is a great local scrapbook store, Carolina Stamper, here in Beaufort, so I was able to add a few neccessities.
Luckily, I did have my Magnoia stamps and some of this gorgeous copper patina hand-dyed silk ribbon and sequin flower from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I've got a couple of other ideas that I want to work on while I'm down here - so you may see a few more goodies pop up. (Besides it's 100 degrees today, so I might want it to cool down a little before I venture out to the pool!)
Challenges:
Magnolia-licious Highlites monthy sketch - Free-standing pop-up card
C.R.A.F.T. - hot and spicy colors
Charisma Cardz - something with a tail
Crafty Ann's - Lazy, hazy days of summer

Magnolia Stamp Lovers- paper piecing
Creative Inspirations - anything goes

Lexi's Creations - paper piecing
Shabby Tea Room - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 diecuts
Bunny Zoe's - summer days

WOW! What a card


OK, so if you don't know a "WOW" card is a white on white card. And it just so happens that today's challenge at Karen's Doodles USA is to make such a card. I love how elegant these cards turn out. It is really a great time to show off textures.

For my card, I used Rock a Bye Baby. I colored her with Copics and added some Flower soft to my lilacs. The embossed butterfly is from a new 12" cuttlebug border folder - and then I just cut it out.

Doesn't this look like a fun technique to try? And we always have winners - so get out those Karen's Doodles!

Mark your calendars!

Do you like fun, games, give-aways and Digital Delights by Louby Lou? Well, who doesn't! Then you need to mark your calendars for July 28th to help us celebrate our one year birthday! I promise, you won't want to miss this one!

Flower Soft Sponsoring CPS!



This week, Flower Soft is pleased to be sponsoring the CPS sketch challenge! This was a really neat sketch to work from. I used papers and stamps from CTMH - Moondoggie line. For the center of the hibiscus, I used my very favorite Ultra Fine Sage Flower Soft. The flower was embossed with red powder, so it's very glossy, and offers a great contrast to the Flower Soft. That fabulous jute ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I hope you get a chance to play along with this challenge. You could win a great prize from the great folks at Flower Soft!

Stamp Something: Something Flowery
