Digital Stamps 4 Joy Challenge #99

Happy Hump Day folks!  Welcome to a new challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  We are so happy to have you join us this week.

Our theme for this week is: Circles

This challenge will run for 2 weeks, until September 2nd.  We would prefer you to use a DS4J image, but it's not required.  In order to win the DT choice prize, you must use one, though.

I used "Mini Mermaid Hugs" image to create my card.


To create my circles, I used my circled dies and my Cuttlebug and randomly placed different size dies on a piece of pink cardstock.  I then backed them with glitter cardstock in green and blue.  I thought they looked like bubbles.

Thank you for joining us for our challenge.  Have a wonderful day and God bless.

Melonheadz Challenge--Back to School

         BACK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGE


Hi everyone.  Welcome back to our new challenge.  Hope y'all had a good couple of weeks.  We had some phenomenal entries into  our last challenge, "Flowers".

Make sure to check the blog to see if you are a winner or Top 3.
Just a quick reminder of the rules---You aren't required to use an image from Melonheadz, but we love it when you do and you can enter as many times as you like.  If you do not use a Melonheadz image, you are limited to 2 entries.

Our challenge runs for about two weeks so you have until August 31st at 11:55 EDT to enter.  The random winner will receive one (1) bundle of your choice from the Melonheadz Etsy Shop.

Our challenge this round is to create a card, scrapbook page or other project that shows "Back to School."  There are lots of cute images that fit this theme in the store and you can even find some freebies on the blog.



When I saw this too cute bundle I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  I enlarged the backpack to 5x6 and made the card base out of it.  I then printed out the sentiment and used foam squares to adhere it to the front.  I like the way it turned out and I think I'm going to put this in my daughter's room for her the night before school starts.

Thank you for stopping by today.   I hope y'all have a great day.  God bless.

MFP's Simple Salutations Challenge #110

Welcome to MFP's Simple Salutation's new challenge.  Our theme this week is "YOUR A DOLL." We want to see your paper doll stamps put to good use.  I wasn't to sure about these stamps when I received my first set as a DT Member, but the more I use them, the more I like them.  I know not everyone has these stamps sets, so if you don't, please use an image showing a doll of some kind.  You can also purchase the paper dolls stamps set here.




I found these cute gemstone snowflakes in my Christmas basket.  I don't have a clue how long ago I bought these, but I did manage to use up some stash making this card.  

The paper's look green, but they are actually a turquoise color.  My camera does some funny things sometimes.

Thank you for joining us today.  Have a wonderful day and God bless.
