Challenges & New Releases

Happy Friday!
Today we have a new challenge for you at:

I am also entering this card into:

I used Voodoo Doll 3 from Dilly Beans, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I used a fine-tip red marker to draw in his bloodshot eye.  For the background, I used a steampunk embossing folder, then rubbed the design lightly on some clear embossing ink - sprinkled and melted some silver embossing powder over it and voila - a metal background.  I added brads for the heads of the pinks and used screw brads as accents on the red matting.  This one was a lot of fun to make!  Oh - and I used my Dymo Caption Maker for the text.

Next up - we also have a new challenge for you today at:

I found out an old friend of mine had a baby girl just last month, so I took the opportunity to make a card for her.  I used Jellypark's New Baby & Teddy in Blanket, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  DP is from Authentique and the safety pin brads (from my stash) were attached to a leftover scrap piece of ribbon from Stampin' Up!  Buttons are from my stash.

And last - we have a new release at Jellypark today, as well!  First up is the pretty Gardening Lady:

And next is my favorite, Pirate Boat:

If you click on the name of the stamp, it'll take you to the correct page in the store to purchase it.  Claire always out-does herself with these sweet and whimsical images, doesn't she?  Although we are divided into 2 teams and only required to participate with whichever our assigned team is doing (challenge or new release), I find myself almost always trying to do both.  I just really enjoy working with these images.  Hope you all have a great weekend.  Peace.

  7. That voodoo doll card is awesome. i love how you accented the pins going through the eye, it looks real (as if you were using real pins). Congrats on your top 4 spot.
