Whimsical Ink Sorority Challenge Issued by ME!

I'm super excited to tell you all that I'm now hosting the Saturday Challenge over at the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog. There is something going on everyday over at the blog and Saturday just happens to be the day of the challenge.

This week, I'm challenging everyone to make a card with something shiny, shimmery, or blingy. Super easy, huh? You don't have to use Queen Kat Designs Stamps to enter, you can use what you have on hand. If you have Queen Kat Designs stamps, use them and you'll get TWO entries into the drawing. This week, the prize is Nivia. It's the same stamp I used for my card. Link up your entries on the Whimsical Ink blog post HERE.

For my card, I colored Nivia with my Copics and Bic Markits. I added Spica pen to her rhinestones on her head and arms, her stars, and the seashells. The DP is Deja Views Fresh Prints, the purple ribbon is American Crafts, the sheer ribbon under is from Joann Fabrics, and I finished with some bling.

Also, today, I wanted to share the cards that got me my spot on the design team since I haven't posted them yet. We were emailed these watermarked images to create new cards with. The first one features the beautiful Lani. The card is pretty simple. I just colored the image and mat it. I covered a card base with some SU DP. Then I added a couple flowers with some dew drops.

The next card features the Magic Flamingos stamp. I had issues with this card, I won't lie to you. This is actually the second one I made, the other one ended up in the trash. Here, the DP is Sassafrass from the Sunshine and Lollipops pack. The ribbon is May Arts. And that's pretty much it, a simple card.
