Wednesday Sketch challenge for The Outlawz. The image is from My Favorite Things

Super Hero

The Saturday Paper a  la Mode challenge at The Outlawz today was "Super Heros".  I decided to take a different approach and make my super hero a firegirl. The image is from My Favorite Things.

Vertio paper

The Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz was "Anything Goes".  I embossed my cardbase and then added the dragonfly. The dragonfly was die cut out of Vertigo paper. I sponged Memento Luxe ink onto the back of it. This paper is really cool. I started with pink ink as a base and then added purple over the entire thing. I then did a few spots of blue and a little more pink.

Metal or Foil

The Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz this past week was to use metal or tin foil on your card. I used heavy duty tin foil and an embossing folder to create my background for this card. I used washi tape for the road. The car is done with decoupage.

Love Letters

The Sunday CAS challenge at The Outlawz was "Love Letters". I used a piece of tinfoil for the background of this card. It was embossed with a Darice embossing folder. The letters were made with Spellbinders Font 1 - Lower case letters. I colored the small heart with a copic marker.

The Saturday Paper A la Mode challenge at The Outlawz was Flowers. I had not used this stamp in a while. These challenges do make me pull out things that I do not frequently use. I colored it with copics and popped the flower up.

Milk Can Flowers

The Friday Alcohol Marker challenge was a color palette this week. I had a hard time deciding what to stamp with the given colors: shades of gray, brick red, turquoise, and dark blue. The stamp I used is from Judith. I added touches of gold to the centers if the flowers with a gold Wink of Stella pen.

Things with Wings

The Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz this week was to make a card featuring Something with wings. I always do butterflies or birds, so I decided to mix it up a bit and do a Bee! He was colored with copics. I used the silver Wink of Stella glitter pen for his wings.

The Sunday CAS challenge this week was to make you own background. I used a stamp with many little cupcakes on it for the background. I colored them all with copics. The sentiment is from Printworks and was just perfect for all the cupcakes.

For a Special Lady

The Saturday Paper A la Mode Challenge at The Outlawz last Saturday was "Special Lady" with the thoughts of making a Mother's Day card. I love to do the layering of images to make a 3-D card.


The Twisted Thursday challenge last week at The Outlawz was to use die cuts and punches. I used labels 4 and labels 4 small from Spellbinders for my die cuts. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the "Boo". The image is a digi that I colored with copics.

Birthday Celebrations

The Monday Greeting challenge was "Flowers". The stamps are from Stampin' Up! and were inked with versacolor inks.

Food for Thought

May 11 was "Eat What You Want Day". So, in honor of that, The Outlawz Alcohol Marker challenge did a "Food for Thought" challenge. The stamps are from Great Impressions. I used versamark on the background and clear embossed it. I fussy cut the chef and popped him up on the ovals.

Tuesday Color Challenge

The color challenge at The Outlawz this past week was to use Blue Lagoon, Navy Blue, and Sunshine Yellow. You needed to add a circle. I inked the butterfly with a pale blue and "kissed" it with a darker blue.

The Saturday Paper Ala Mode challenge at the Outlawz on May 3 was "Family". I thought that these mice were trying to be part of the seagulls family.

Catch a Wave

Last Mondays Greeting challenge at The Outlawz was "beach or water". I think I have a mix of both here. I used a piece of DP from my stash for my waves. The surfing penguin is from Art Impressions. I love my collection of "beach" penguins. The seagulls are from Stampscapes.

May Flowers

The Friday, May 2 challenge at The Outlawz Alcohol Ink challenge was "May Flowers". Again the image is from Lili of the Valley. I, of course, colored it with copics and added a lot of glitter.


I am a bit behind on posting things onto the blog. This was the challenge from The Outlawz on Thursday, May 1. It was a "BINGO" challenge in which you needed to choose the three things that you were going to include on your card. I chose a stamped image, glitter, and patterned paper as my three items. The image is from Lili of the Valley. I used glitter on her dress, the hearts and flowers. The patterned paper also has some glitter in it.

I found a new challenge to do. Actually, I knew it was there, but never did it. This challenge is a weekly sketch from My Favorite Things. It comes out on Wednesdays. I used this MFT stamp and colored it with copics. I had pumpkin border ribbon that I used. The buttons on the top and bottom of the card are Candi that were colored with copics. I added some Glossy Accents to the pumpkins, the heart on her pants and her hair bows.

Graduation Dog

Wednesday sketch challenge from The Outlawz. This is a stamp that has been in my collection for a long time, but that I had never used. I used a Darice embossing folder for the background and a sticker for the words.
