Creative Creations Challenge #13 - Shaped Cards

Hello, everyone! Time for another challenge from Creative Creations! This challenge is to create shaped cards; no squares or rectangles allowed! Now I know how easy it is to get in a rut when creating, so take this time to see what fun shapes your cards can take. Check out the ones the DT created over on the CCC Blog and start those creative juices flowing. Also, stop by to check the new additions to the Design Team, past winners of challenges, and what prizes the sponsor (The Paper Nest Dolls) is offering!

Here is my shaped card:

Squeeky Clean Card. The image is Bubble Bat Ellie. She is just darling! She is colored with Copics. I created the soap bottle with my Cricut Expression and the Paper Dolls cartridge. I used some pink ink with a couple of heart stamps to make a pattern in the middle, and added perfect pearls around it. I created the bubble with craft plastic, alcohol inks, and Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by! ~xoxo

SBS Birthday Celebration! ~My Day 1~

Hello, everyone! Simply B Stamps is having it's 3rd Birthday Celebration! Each DT member is showcasing an entire line of stamps for your viewing and creating pleasure! We want to show you all how wonderfully fun SBS is! Check out the SBS blog to see the creations, contests, and prizes being offered!

This is what SBS means to me:

Simply B Stamps Rocks! I remember when I first started scrapbooking a few years ago, I started looking in to stamps to use in my projects. I found a few stamp companies that I liked but none stood out to me or felt more "me" than SBS. The images from SBS are fresh and funky, with a dark twist that speaks to my personality perfectly. SBS has images that are wonderful for any occasion and often bring humor into your projects. I chose to use the Valentine Emo Line for my SBS Birthday celebration projects because they embody the joyful spirit I love so much from SBS. I hope that I have shown the versatility SBS images have and that everyone enjoys the Celebration!

Now as this is a celebration month we are giving away prizes all month long!

Today we are giving away the entire Valentine Emos Celina has used, as well as any other complete EMO line in digi! Whoohoo!

How do you win such a prize?

Here are the details:

Using ANY image SBS or any other create your best Valentine project using the following colors:

Skin tones are also allowed as well as different hair tones; Blonde, brown, black...but your main colors must be the above mentioned!

You have until June 30th to upload your cards. Winners will be announced July 4th.

As I mentioned above, I chose the Valentine Emo line to showcase; and here is my first creation:

This is Cherub Christian. He's probably wondering why he's in this get-up... Lol.

This is the card with its matching envelope.

And this is the back of the card. The sentiment is: Age is Like Underwear... It Creeps Up On You!
I hope you enjoyed today's creation; come back tomorrow for another one! And don't forget to visit the Guest Designer for this month, Carrie, who is also showcasing this week!
