Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge – February

Are you a member of the Stampers Delights Delights Facebook Fan Group?  Have you seen the Progressive Challenge?  Join each month to receive the monthly image for free!  This month is Autumn Fox.  She might be an autumn fox, but in February she makes a great valentine!  I love a versatile stamp!  Click below for details:

I used a card from the last time I participated in Kendra’s Card Challenge (sixteen cards with different sketches made from 12 pieces of 6×6 paper) as the card base.  Added a big heart to frame this foxy cutie. She sure was fun to work with.  I can’t wait to see what you do with her!

Woof Means Happy Birthday – Inspiration Challenge #824

It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for the Inspiration Challenge.  As usual, I shopped the sale section of the Inspiration site. I found this skirt that inspired me to use horizontal stripes of DP.

I was going to look for paper that was the same pattern but three different colors until I remembered that I still have some cards left over from Kendra’s Card Challenge and this one was perfect. I need to use them up so I can make my next batch. I love having these card bases all ready to go–just add critters. Here is a cute dog that I just bought recently from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  As always, I made two cards, so I used two of the card bases I had.

We only have until the end of September to enter Kendra’s Card Challenge #3, so we better get going.  Speaking of challenges, I’m also entering:

Happy Panda – Ways to Use It Challenge #852

Thursday means it’s time for the Ways to Use It Challenge.  Cathy’s challenge today is “Some Like it Hot”. I decided to go with hot coffee, because this sweet panda was on my to do list. I swear I’ve used him before, but I cannot find any evidence of that. I still have a stack of cards from “Kendra’s Card Challenge #2”–a great card challenge to use six 6×6 papers to create 14 cards. I made the cards as bases to add critters to gradually.

I chose this one because it has the warmest color background. This is the beginning of a sentiment from Crackerbox & Suzy that says “Money may not buy happiness, but I’d rather cry in a Jaguar than on the bus”. I changed it to say this:

I almost always make two of each card.  As long as I’m making one card, I might as well make two.  That way I can really build up my stash.  For my second card, I had a card base that had a coffee theme on the background.

I also love this sentiment stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy.  Here’s the inside:

I generally have a tough time coloring pandas.  Coloring any animal with black on it’s face is hard.  I think I found a great color combo for this one.  I used BV23, BV25, and BV29.  It produced a black enough feel with a light enough color to not lose his facial features. His cheeks are R20 and R22, dishes are SN GT1 and GT2, coffee and frosting are SN EB5, EB6, and EB7, donut is E31 and E35, shading on white is C0 and C1.

This card is also for the following challenges:
