Robyn's Fetish Challenge 155: Easel Cards

Hi Everybody and "Hello" to a new week!

Sure do hope you enjoyed our "What's Cookin' Kitchen Images" Blog Hop
and had a chance to grab some of the delightful new RF designs! (-:

This week, the
Robyn's Fetish Challenge theme is: 
Easel Cards 
and we're being sponsored by
 A Day for Daisies

I just LOVE the whimsical design of Tammy's images and it is always a pleasure to work with her!!

The winner will receive a $12 Certificate to the ADFD Store!

I chose "Butterfly A" for my project this week.

With permission from ADFD, I converted the image to a cutting file that can be used with my Eclips (-:
I imported the digi into my Sure Cuts a Lot software, traced it, flipped it, welded it, then did a "Print and Cut" onto some beautiful papers from the DCWV Heirloom Stack!

I used a Sizzix Embossing Folder for the background, and as you can see, in a few spots, some of the white core of the paper is showing through... I must have had the sandwich not quite right in my Big Kick and it embossed deeply enough to actually tear the paper a little... bit of a bummer, actually!!

The spots on the butterfly are Tim Holtz "Broken China" Distressed Stickles... who know glitter glue could get "distressed"... (-:

Every week, I try something a little "out of the box" and "different" to try to inspire you to play in our Robyn's Fetish Challenges! We welcome ALL paper craft projects and love to see how creative you can be with our Challenge Themes!!

Hopefully, this week, you'll try making an Easel Card and will join our challenge for a chance to WIN!!!

See you next time!

Here are a few challenges I would like to enter:

A Day for Daisies: Your Favorite Technique: I LOVE to go "outside the box" and try new and different things, and I also LOVE my Eclips and try to find new and different ways to use it! (-:

Brown Sugar Challenge Blog: Step or Easel Card. The projects posted by this DT are fascinating and I see a few things I know I'll be trying soon! (-:

Nutcrafters: Shaped Cards: I just found this challenge thru Feline Playful, but they have some cute digis and I'm sure I'll visit again!!

Flutterby Wednesday: Anything Goes with Butterfly or Fairy

Robyn's Fetish What's Cookin' Kitchen Images Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the "What's Cookin' Kitchen Images Blog Hop"

You should have arrived here from SANDRA'S blog

If you've just arrived and would like to start from the beginning,

Over the next 2 days, our team will be treating you
to some adorable new cooking themed images
that you're sure to love!

Make sure you leave a comment at every stop along the hop
and you'll be entered to win!! 

The GRAND PRIZE is the Winner’s choice of THREE 
of the NEW “WHAT’S COOKIN’” KITCHEN digital stamps.

Also, randomly scattered through the hop,
there will be 5 winners that will each receive 
that are on 5 of the DT members’ blogs.

Here is my project:

The name of the image is "Cooking Mouse", so I figured a yellow
(cheese-colored) recipe box was appropriate...

The box is actually in another collection
called Christmas Open House

I colored Miss Mouse with Copics, Sharpies and Prismacolor Pencils.
The papers are all from DCWV... 

Here's a picture with the top on:

The original recipe box file has a cute little handle on top
but I didn't get a chance to put it on before time ran out to get ready for today's hop... if I choose to give this box as a gift, there are a few embellishments I will probably add to the top, just to dress it up a little...
but for today, I really wanted you to see the "Cooking Mouse"
and I hope you'll visit the rest of the hop
to see all the other "What's Cookin' Kitchen Images"!

Now it's time to head on over to SUE'S Blog
to see what crafty goodness she has cooked up!

Here is the complete hop list in case you get lost along the way
or have to take a break and come back!

Robyn's Fetish Challenge 154: Anything Goes

**ETA** Imagine my surprise this morning when my newest Robyn's Fetish Challenge Project was not posted on my blog!!??!! With a little research, I found that I did indeed write up the post and was not losing my mind... I did, however, schedule it for the wrong day!

So, without further adieu... here is the originally scheduled post for your viewing pleasure! (-:

Hope the rest of the day works out a little more on "schedule" (especially nap time, since I didn't get home til almost 2am after work last night!!)

Hello and Howdy, friends!

Today a new challenge starts at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
It's everyone favorite "Anything Goes"
and our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish.

The winner will received 3 images of their choice from the Robyn's Fetish Shop!

I got to play with one of the new images released in the Blog Hop last fall:
Jennie the Scarecrow

While it may be early to start thinking about scarecrows, we are definitely heading into Spring and time to set up our new, fresh, lovely gardens... I colored Jennie in all pastels to make sure you think of spring when you see her! :)

I used Prismacolor Pencils and Sharpie markers for coloring!

I used a "Lever" card style, which is pretty cool in real life. When you open the card, the image flips with the cardstock...

The little flowers and the "Smile" sentiment are Stampin Up Rubons I found in my stash drawer the other day. The flower is a pretty nifty little number from a K & Company booklet... pop them out, layer them up and voila, finished little embellie!

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure you pop on over to the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to take a look at all the lovelies created by the RF Team!!
