7 Kids College Fund Challenge~ANYTHING GOES

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you've been having a great week so far. Today starts a new challenge at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.

The theme for the next two weeks is:

ANYTHING GOES!

Today, I've used the super adorable Little Darlings Ellie's Birthday from Saturated Canary. She's one of my favorites!! I'm trying out some different coloring paper. This time I used Neenah Solar White Super Smooth Cardstock and stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E13
Hair: E13, E25, E29
Pink: RV02, RV04, RV06
Blue: BG10, BG53, BG55, BG57
Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen

My dps are from Authentique FLOURISH 6x6 Paper Pad. I just recently purchase the gorgeous Wild Rose Studio Corner Flourish Specialty Die and had to use it on this card. It's bigger than I thought, but I LOVE it!! Then I added some Melissa Frances white pearls to the flower centers, which really made the die pop. The beautiful teal burlap flowers are also a new find in the 7 Kids College Fund Store. Both the teal and pink flowers are from Petaloo....fabulous I tell ya!! The oval behind my image was cut out using the Marianne Design Passe Partout Oval Die...LOVE it too!! All of my favorites are pretty much on this card!!

Supply List from the 7 Kids College Fund Store:

We hope to see you playing along with us over the next 2 weeks. Remember to be eligible for the gift certificate and the Top 3, you must use a stamp carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store.

Have a great week!
Hugs,
Rosie

Little Miss Muffet~INSPIRATIONAL POST!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Happy Thursday everyone! Today over at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog we are showcasing DT cards for inspiration. Be sure to check out my DT sisters' cards...they will definitely get your mojo flowing!

Before I get to my card I wanted to share the following photo. A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to a Coloring Retreat in Dallas, TX hosted by Barbara (Forgotten Scraps/LMM), Zoe (Make it Crafty), and Christy (Tiddly Inks). It was an amazing time!! Not only did I learn some new techniques, but I walked away with some new friends. These ladies were all AWESOME and TALENTED in so many ways!! Because it was such a success, there will probably be one next year, WOOT, WOOT! So start saving your money now. You will definitely want to be a part of it! :)

Middle Row (sitting): Courtney, Christy (Tiddly Inks), Barbara (LMM), Peggy, Torrey, and Nicky
Front Row: Zoe (MiC) and Rosie (me)

At the retreat, we were challenge to use our markers to color in a face on one of our Little Miss Muffet stamps. I picked Jr. Hatter Lilith. Originally, her eyes are closed. I added some "open" eyes following Barbara's (Forgotten Scraps) face tutorial. Now this is my first time ever trying this. I can say that Barbara makes it look sooooo easy, but it definitely takes a lot of practice. Hopefully, my next few tries will be better. :)

My card was inspired by the new friends I made!! I used dps from MME and Webster's Pages. The chipboard stickers and the green rhinestones are Studio G from Walmart. The ribbon was from a friend.

 Now, don't forget to head over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog to see more inspiration!

Have a great Thursday!
