Tropical Summer at D2d

Busy, busy week for me but I do hope I could post this in time for the Progressive Challenge at Delightful Inspiration.  It's a "Tropical Summer" image for this week's freebie. See more lovely images at Designed to Delight digital stamps store and join the challenges if you want to have a collection of their wonderful images.
The flower image is really familiar with me 'cause I used to play with this when I was about 8. We call this flower  in the Philippines (with the stamen),  "Gumamela". My neighbor friends and I even tasted the nectar and surprisingly it tastes sweet. The curious child in me. lol. Good thing it's not poisonous. Maybe that's why the bees like to hang around with this lovely bloom. Anyway here's my card:

Fresh Cut Freebie at D2D

It's been raining here in our place for about a week now. But so glad I'll have a bit of a bright aura through this card I made with Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge freebie called " Fresh Cut". If you weren't able to play last week, you can still get this lovely image along with other fun images at
Designed2Delight digital stamps store. I want to enter this also for this week's creative challenge which is a fun color combination of Orange + Pink + Neutrals only. Here's my card:
I decoupaged the flowers and hearts of the fresh cut image and framed it with a ruffled frame from Sans Designs. I did the same with the flowers and leaves of the frame.
The sentiment is a freebie also from Designed2Delight at their facebook page. I used a frame from Scrapalicious Times.

Mary, Mary freebie at D2D

The lovable Miss Mary is the freebie this week at Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge. If you weren't able to play last week, you can still get her at Designed2Delight digital stamps store. And if you want to have a collection of their cute stamps, join the fun at the Delightful Inspiration challenges.
For Mary, I made a Tent Card in various orange color hues. I haven't made a card with this color yet and I think I made a one cheerful card. Hope I could brighten someone's day with this one.
I drew some water sprinkles with colored pencil and added some glitter. The flowers were made using Marianne Design Creatables LR 0111 and put orange crystal gems at the centers. Mary's dress was paper-pieced with the same print as the background paper- Daisy bouquet set from Pink Petticoat.

 The lovely sentiment is a freebie from When the scrap hits the fun:
Hope you like it.

D2D Spring Fence Freebie & Pop-up Card

I am so pleased with how my project for Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge came out! I was able to make a pop-up card for this week's freebie-Spring Fence. This image completed my collection of lovely garden images of Designed2Delight digital stamps. 
For the card front, I used Marianne Design Die LR0111 and embossed a rounded square for the center. I slightly colored the embossed images with chalk. I then added a yellow satin ribbon and 3 yellow crystal gems. The sentiment is from Scrapalicious Times.
Inside, I printed Fluffly Cloud images on upper part and Fairy Dots on the lower portion as background. Both designer papers are from Pink Petticoat.
The sentiment is from Whenthescraphitsthefun
I printed the images-Caring Kaela and Spring Fence on a white board paper, colored them and cut separately. I then assembled the pop-up support and attached the images.

Bingo Challenge at MPS

Last week, I took advantage of the sale at Michelle Perkett Studio and bought some really lovely images! I love the details of her images and today I've used the 3 graces ballerinas for this week's Bingo Challenge. The challenge is to choose a line or all of the given items as "ingredients" for your card. Here are the ingredients:
For my card, I used glitter, flowers and 2 backing papers. I went a little overboard and also used scallops, ribbon, a string of faux pearls and a brad. Here is the colored 3 graces ballerinas:
I didn't do any paper-piecing this time, because I just love to color these girls. But I did decoupage the dress of the middle girl just to add layers of the laces underneath. I had fun applying colors on their petticoats and even put a little make-up on their faces. You can guess I'm not a very professional make-up artist. lol.
The backing papers I used were from Pink Petticoat's Ribbon Stripes set and Perfect Papers Collection. The ribbon frame around the ballerinas was a freebie from Lindsay's  Stamp Stuff and you can get it here.

The sentiment is a freebie from Elegant WordArt  and the frame I used is a downloaded clipart:

Here's a clearer view of the whole sentiment:
Other Challenges Entered:
Bugaboo Stamps-June Anything Goes Challenge

Flower Freebie at D2D

The uniqueness of this weeks' freebie image for the Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge is what inspired me to make this card design. It's a flower image with floral images at its center. This and other wonderful images are available at Designed2Delight digital stamps.
I created overlapping bunches of flowers using the same image but different sizes and added just a hint of color using chalks. I colored the centers with a darker shade. For the main image I paper-pieced 2 images using patterned paper from Pink Petticoat with the second piece glued only on the middle part to give the petals a little lift. For the flower's center, I added glitter glue and attached with foam adhesives.
The sentiment is a freebie from Scrapalicious Times:

 Materials used:
Cream board paper
Pink Petticoat Little Swirls
Dovecraft decorative chalks
Lilac crystal gems
Glitter glue
Promarkers: Amethyst, Lilac,Vanilla
Tria Pens:G159
