New Challenge at Lia Stampz!

Hey guys!  There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz! This fortnight, we want to see your Child's Birthday projects! 

The winner of the challenge will get the awesome digi called Monkey Rocket (you can get it at Whimsy Stamps here).  For once, I didn't use the winning digi on my project! You'll have to visit Lia Stampz to see the prize. :) I used this digi called Unicorn, instead.  I had a birthday card to make for a friend that loves unicorns! 

Inked the cutie pie with Copics.  Used my new cloud embossing folder from Stampin Up!.  Added some popped up die cuts for background, some paper roses, satin ribbon, dew drops, and leaves from the SU owl punch.  Added a SU sentiment and some dazzling diamonds glitter! Love that stuff on unicorns and fairies! 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

A Custom Card

Once in awhile, I'll get a custom request come through from my Etsy shop.  Love these!  I got a request for an 18th birthday for a grandson who was very handsome, light skinned, black hair, brown eyes, who drives a blue car, and love guitars.  This is what I came up with:

Thought this Kenny K digi was appropriate! Inked him up with Copics.  Some die cutting, punching, twine, and a Stampin Up sentiment and we were good to go!

New Challenge at Lia Stampz - Anything Goes!

Hey guys!  Its everyone's favorite challenge at Lia Stampz this fortnight!  Its Anything Goes!!!

The winner of the challenge will get this awesome digi called Carl (you can get it at Whimsy Stamps here).  

Inked him up with Copics.  You can't really tell, but I colored him entirely in light grays.  I popped him up on some Steampunk Botanica paper and used some Fancy Pants letter stickers to create the ransom note type sentiment.   I had this Meatloaf song stuck in my head for DAAAAYYYYYS! 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!
