Pajama Party Challenge #4

The last challenge of the night was from Geeta, who used "Some Kind of Wonderful" in lieu of "Twilight" to challenge everyone to use some kind of sparkle on their cards.

I was a bit too ambitious and Quickie Glued fine green glitter all over the branches of the Evergreen Branch, which left me also covered in glitter by the end. (If you zoom in on the photo, you can even see a few wayward flecks on the card itself.)

All in all, I enjoyed getting my hands and stamps inky again, so hopefully you'll see some new cards from me again real soon!

Pajama Party Challenge #3

Challenge #3 was all about finding inspiration from this movie poster for "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

More than the focal image, I love the little vignette off to the right, so I focused on that in my card:

Despite not being able to mat the city skyline panel, I think this card is my favorite of the evening's cards.

Pajama Party Challenge #2

The second 30 minute challenge of the evening was based on the movie poster for "Dirty Dancing." The colors on the poster are light pink, dark pink, black and kraft, so the challenge was to use only those colors.

I thought I'd try and change things up with an asymmetrical layout, and I think I like it.

Aaaaand We're Back. . .

No matter how uninspired or tired I'm feeling, there is one thing that can always get me making cards again. . .a good ole A Muse party! Tonight, the gals over at the Lounge hosted a Pajama Party with a movie theme that really got my wheels turning.

The first challenge was based on "Pirates of the Caribbean," and the challenge was to make a card for a kid. My eye immediately wandered over to my little penguin friend, and the sentiment just seemed perfect.

July ATC: Turtles!

Well, I've been busy as a bee with my new graphic design class and haven't had time to stamp much lately. Can you believe that even though it's called graphic design, I have to draw all of my designs by hand??? Crazy! I haven't actually drawn anything for a school assignment for at least 10 years, so it's been a rough learning curve. Nonetheless, I'm enjoying the challenge.

Enough about me, and on to my ATC. Thank goodness for Tracy and her monthly ATC group to motivate and inspire me! I did this turtle-themed one for July using a Denami Designs turtle and a Wordsworth sentiment. I really tried to do some shadowing on the turtles with my Copics, and I used a clear Glaze pen on their shells. Cute and simple, just the way I like it!

See you soon!

Denami Blog Hop!

Hi there, and welcome to my stop on the Denami Blog Hop! You should've just arrived here from Virginia Larsen's blog. If so, welcome! If you're just joining the hop, you may want to start at the Denami Design blog.

The theme of today's hop is Cuddly Critters, and I've got a darling one to share with you. Have you met their cute little mouse? I'll admit, a mouse isn't usually the first critter I want to cuddle with, but once you see Denami's, you'll understand why I just fell in love with the little guy. Wanna see?

I love how easy it is to have him and his friends peeking out from the holes in my hunk of homemade Swiss cheese. Fun!

Be sure to comment to be eligible to win one of those two $20 Denami gift certificates (given to people who comment along the hop), and thanks for stopping by!

Next stop: Laurel Beard's blog.
