Magical Monday - Dancing Hearts

Good Morning! It's Magical Monday again and this weeks Limited time FREE Image from There's Magic in the Air is Dancing Hearts. The challenge this week is to use BLING on your card. I thought since there's a lot going on in the image, I'd keep the card 'simple' - My bling is the purple Stickles on the shelf. Hope you like it!

Magical Monday - Eldon with Flower

Good Morning... You know I am not writing this in the morning, right?! lol Mornings are NOT a good time for me... especially Mondays. but here's a bright spot for ya :) It's Magical Monday once again at There's Magic in the Air. This week's Limited time FREE Image is Eldon with Flower by Nina May- Isn't he just the cutest? and this week's challenge is to use ribbon~with a bow on your card.... I don't usually use "bows" per say, usually "pretty knots" hahaha - so here's what I came up with
- Here I've printed him out at about 3x3.5" and colored with markers - added a little purple Stickles in the flower center and I lightly sponged the sky in light blue with a holey sponge - I tied the bow and stuck it on with a glue dot ;) Couldn't really decide on a sentiment for the front.. so I just left it blank
Hope you like it & join us in the challenge

Magical Monday - Deco Flower - Embossing Challenge

Gooood morning! This week's Free Limited Edition digital stamp is Deco Flower by Nina May at There's Magic in the Air. Today's challenge was my idea - so today I challenge you to emboss with this image. While I used my Perfect Medium pen to do heat embossing directly on the image after I colored it, you can emboss any part of your card. Dry embossing will be included as well.....so even scoring for decorative effect would be included ~ sky's the limit so as along as it's embossing... it works!



I've actually used both heat & dry embossing.


Here's a close up of the heat embossing I did.... I colored first, so there wouldn't be any white peeping out. I used Tanzanite PearLustre embossing powder - I jut love the way this stuff melts! and for the yellow I used Sparkle n Sprinkle Dandy Dandelion , which is semi-transparent and has glitter in it ;)

So get on over there and pick up this week's image and join us in the challenge!

More Relaxing by Gigi

So here's another card with Gigi ~ she's just too cool - chillin' on her tube. sorry about the kinda same color scheme, but actually I did this one first - before the challenge was issued, I was so excited to play with this image! LOL - and it just worked so well! :)

As always you can click for a larger view. The sentiment is popped up and I tied the ribbons together and fed it through the slot punched hole in the image panel.
