Wee Memories Challenge: Pinterest, Etsy Inspired Challenge

Wee Memories Challenge: Pinterest, Etsy Inspired Challenge.  Use a photo from Pinterest or Etsy to inspire a crafty project, and link up to the Wee Memories Challenge. 

Sponsored by May Arts: Ribbon Prize Pack.


I just fell in love with this gorgeous cake I found on Pinterest.  
My fellow design team girl - Laurie issued the Pinterest Challenge too... her challenge is open until Monday, so you can link up to her blog too.  If you are interested in following me on pinterest, you can find me: Wendy Elliot.  I'm semi new, and don't have super full boards, but I'm sure that will change!

My awesome parents will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary in a few weeks... so this card is for them.  I used the DeNami Solid Decorative Crest with white ink and white embossing powder. Used PTI dies to create the 40.  I used the inspiration photo for the ribbon treatment and addition of the flower.  
Hope you get a chance to play along this week!!

Wee Memories Challenge: STAMP IT!

Wee Memories Challenge: Stamp It! -- use stamps on your card/project.
Sponsored by Market Street Stamps.
The lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate. 

Market Street Stamps provided the DT with a stamp set of our choice ---I chose this adorable snail set --- Slow Movin.  Who knew snails could be cute??  I thought the circles on his shell would be perfect to add some buttons and bling to.  He comes with cute sentiments too .... hello there, take it slow, good things come to those who wait, don't be silly!    I hope you get a chance to play along this week, I'm an avid rubber stamper, so I love the challenge!  You have until Friday May 27th to link up your projects.

DeNami Product Challenge: Patterned Paper

DeNami Product Challenge #08 --- Patterned Paper. 
You have until May 26th to join in on the fun -- you could win a $20 DeNami Gift Certificate!!  You just have to incorporate 1 DeNami stamp into your project, and use some patterned paper ---Easy!

I love this pretty Daisy Vines Paper from DeNami, I paired it with the Pink Paisley paper.  I paper pieced Mimi's Umbrella and rain boots with the pink paisley paper also.  I tried to keep it super simple, so the patterned paper wouldn't be covered up. Just added a simple blue bow at the bottom.

DeNami carries lots of patterned paper -- you can find it under the Bella Press section on the website.

Wee Memories Challenge: STICKY!

Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge: Get Sticky. Use stickers or rub ons.
Sponsored by SRM Stickers. 

I chose to use the Sticker Sentiments: Congratulations set. This pink frame was screaming for some attention!! I stuck the [you're a shining star!] sticker straight onto the frame.  The Way to Go sticker was put onto white cardstock and punched out.  I also punched a few stars and layered them with some pretty rhinestones.  Perfect for my little soccer star. This is a 5x7 picture, in case you want to know the size of the stickers.

I must say it is SO nice to be able to resize a digital image, and print it out so quickly.  I chose this gorgeous Summer Fairy to work with.  I couldn't wait to glitter up her wings!!  She is only $3.50 if you love her to go grab her!  I actually colored her in with copics and then went to work hunting down paper and ribbon to match. Oh boy, I don't plan on doing that again! Next time I will decide on patterned paper and THEN color.

This week is also our BLOG HOP.  SO hopefully you've found me from Vera's Blog. If not, you can go to Jenny's Blog and start there!  I am also the end of the hop.....Thanks for hopping along with us today.
