I challenged myself to make a card with strictly SU products. This is the first time that I used everything SU even including glue at home. I got this retired set recently and just love it. The blue is a 5 x 5 square card. The sketch fits Sketch Saturdays challenge. I just loved this layout.
The stars are from a Simply Scrappin kit. I used Vanilla brads in the corner of the image.

I have a new camera and still learning on how to use it. The saying is Thinking of you which is a Studio G stamp along with the flower. The base is White Crepe from Paper Temptress. I love that the paper is already textured so it makes for a quick card. I had this image already colored which added to the quickness. The diamonds are Pez A Bling. Marti has new Pez A Bling colors and mixtures. Head on over to her blog to see the fantastic new colors and get a chance to win a bag of these fantastic embellishments. The saying is on a nestabilite tag that I inked the edges with Studio G ink and the saying and flowers are stamped with Studio G ink. The DP is retired SU.

I got this cute image awhile ago and just hadn't had time to ink it up. Isn't she adorable? I think so eespecially with all that glitter. The photo makes paper look like it is cream but it is a light green. The image is Evee with her Pterodactyl. I colored her with SU markers and then added purple stickles and eucylyptous stickles to her dress and to her friend. The bone in her hair has Ice Stickles. The heart is grunge board painted with DI Dusty Concord and then added purple stickles. The sketch is for the first challenge from Jessica Lynn Originals. I stamped the small images from a couple different JLO stamps with DI Dusty Concord. This card fits Tuesday Morning Sketches color challenge which was to use Elagent Eggplant, Certainly Celery, Kraft. Since I don't have SU paper to match, I used Dark Purple, Light Green Basis and Kraft from Paper Temptress. The last challenge was Pile it On's challenge to use 3 of something.

This card was for last weeks There She Goes challenge. Butterfly Happiness is the stamp set I used. I stamped the butterfly in Distress Ink Shabby Shutters then put crystal effects in the center and added some purple glitter. The word frame is from Oriental Trading. The butterflies on the side were stamped with Distress Ink Dusty Concord on Basis Tan. The base behind the scene is Cappuccino/ Grape Double Sided Sorbet. I cuttlebuged the paper than sanded so you can see the second color. I distressed the edges. SU white satin ribbon is the final touch.

Sassy Studio is having a Sweet Treat Release party tomorrow. All the different time zones are on the blog. The pre-release challenge was to use this cupcake image and add bling and a 3d element. I printed the cupcake on Cryogen White Iridescent which has a shimmer. I then colored the cupcake with Twinkling H2Os to add more sparkle. I put brown liquid applique on the top then heated it. I added Twinkling H2Os on top to give it more sparkle. The flower is double popped up. The saying is a Studio G. OK, I forgot the 3-D part of the challenge so I added this peek a boo treat holder. The directions are on SCS. The base is Sparkle Vermilion and the squares are Columns Brown. I had this miniature cupcake done exactly like the large on the card.
Here if you click on the photo, you can see the shimmer on paper that the cupcake is on.
Sparkle Vermilion, Columns Brown, Basis Red, Pike Brown Text paper, Cryogen White Iridescent are from Paper Temptress

Project Tuesday this week was to create a treat holder for a water bottle. The directions for it are here. I used Basis Blue for the base. Then layered Blue Crepe. The side border is 1" and 1/2" circles stamped with Faded Blue Jean Distress Ink. I fight 6 small kit kats in this treat box.
Pez A Doodle has grunge board, Distress Inks and Distress Paint for fantastic prices. If you haven't tried them, you should. I have found that Distress Inks are my favorites to use on all projects. Now go to my other DT sisters and see there beautiful projects. The links are on my left side bar.

This is my DD, Katie's card showing Princess Priya. Katie colored the image using Twinkling H2O's. The papers are from my stash. The brackets are from a retired SU Simply Scrappin kit. Katie used a butterfly that I had made using grungeboard and Distress Inks Shabby Shutters and Dusty Concord. Katie put Pez A Blings in the center of the butterfly and in the corner.
One last thing go visit all the other DT's to see there wonderful creations and to see the other 2 stamps being released. All the links are on the left side bar.

Ok, I hope you won't get tired of seeing the new Pez A Doodle stamps. Today I am showing you Princess Pryia. I stamped her with Memento Black ink. I stamped the leaves of the tree 3 more times and after coloring them cut them out and layered them on top of the tree. The picture below shows the layering.
Head on over to my fellow Pez A Doodle DTs and see the wonderful creations using the Nestie stamps. The links are on my side bar. These are stamps made to fit Nestabillites but you can use them alone if you don't have the Nesties. I hope to show you later next week the project I have done with one of these fantastic stamps. Marti has all the new stamps up on her blog so you can see all the extra stamps that go with the main image.

This image is called Harvest Dance. The colors for this card and images is out of my comfort zone. I prefer colors that are bright and cheery. I used Circle Circus from SU on the tan and green paper. I used Pez A Blings in the corners.

The new Studio G challenge on Paper Craft Planet Studio G Group is a sketch. I used Curved Rectangles Nestabillities to make the card using Sparkle Card stock. I used a 12 x 12 sheet to be able to use the largest die. I got two cards pus enough to make a slightly smaller card. The layer under the cupcakes is Pez A Bling. I used a variety of colors to go with this wonderful ribbon. The small cupcakes hide an extra ink mark. I used Champange Stickles and Diamond Stickles on top of the cupcake tops. The cupcake base was cut using Labels 2. The DP is SU. The blue is Sorbet Double Duty Blue Ice/Cappucino. I embosed the paper with Swirls embossing folder. I then sanded the paper so you can see a little bit of the brown. (click on the picture to make the picture bigger.
