Glitter and Lace ~ DSCB #5

We want to thank everyone who played along with us last weekend, we loved all of your beautiful cards and all the creative ways that you used fabric!

This weeks challenge is to use glitter and lace on your cards! We also have a special treat for you all, a guest designer!  The super talented and always inspiring Sparkle Smith!  She dropped by the lounge to play along and help us out with this weeks challenge.  While she was here, we asked a few questions and want to share her answers with you!   

DS: What is your drink of choice when stamping?

Sparkle:  Hot Water – I get cold really easily and it keeps me warm, lol.

DS: What or who inspires you creatively?

Sparkle:  Amy Sheffer – I love how she layers and embellish all of her cards.

DS: How would you describe your style?

Sparkle: Cutesy and adorable

DS: And finally, What are your top 5 stamping must haves that you could not live without?

Sparkle: Copics, Prima Flowers, Kraft cardstock, Stickles and Pop dots.

Thank you Sparkle for dropping by to play with us and answer our questions!  Now on to our cards for this weeks challenge.  😀

Mardi Gras ~ DSCB #3

Oh my gosh! We are just excited to see you all having a great time with us and the fabulous creations you are making! It’s absolutely fantastic!!

This week’s challenge will put some hair on your chest! LOL
With shrove Tuesday around the corner, what great inspiration for a card other than Mardi Gras!! WAHOOO!! With it’s bold, bright colours and many textures, there’s so much to draw from and it’s a PERFECT Drunken Stampers Challenge fit!! (Unsure about what an inspiration picture challenge is? Click on the Challenges Page for more info!)

For Drunken Stampers Challenge #3 (DSCB3), create a new card using the Mardi Gras picture below for inspiration.

Into the hard stuff??? Well how about a single shot? Then ALSO use 3 different kinds of embellishments from the following only (acetate, beads, brads, buttons, feathers, glitter in any form, Flower Soft, rhinestones, pearls, piercing, flowers, lace, glossy/matte/crackle/sepia Ranger accents, crackle paint, ribbon). (ie. 3 different flowers only count as one embellishment, except for the different Ranger accents)

Or maybe you just want to push your limits further and want a double??? Then instead of using 3 kinds of embellishments use at least 6 from the list above!!

This challenge is entirely up to you! (You can do the inspiration challenge alone or in addition add 3 or 6+ embellishments from the list.)

(FYI, DS trivia…it wasn’t easy to find an interesting Mardi Gras pic that wouldn’t bump the blog into the “age verification required” bracket!! LOL)

For more details about the cards, click on the designer’s name 😀

Peggy’s Mardi Gras Inspired Card:

Peg did the double shot!
German Glass Glitter, Glossy Accents, Flowers, Buttons, Pearls, Ribbon & Piercing

Spike’s Mardi Gras Inspired Card:

Spike did the double shot too!!
Distressed Stickles, White Flower, Glossy Accents, Leaf Ribbon, Matte Accents, Piercing

Everyone is welcome to play however you decide to challenge yourself. This week we have something really special! From all the cards that qualify for the double shot challenge, Peggy and I will decide our most favourite card and the winner will receive the fabulous embellishment package below!!! How cool is that?? All entries to be considered for the prize pack must be listed in Mister Linky by the date and time below and also the card may not be combined with other challenges. (just for this challenge as we’re giving goodies away 😀 ) Here’s the booty of bling!! ($50+ of shiny, sparkly, blingy goodness!!) Spread the joy, shout out and let your friends know!

Happy Stamping!!! Drunken stamping is much more fun with friends!! Come play with us!!

Be My Valentine ~ DSCB #2

We want to thank everyone who came out to celebrate and play along with us last weekend, we loved all of your beautiful cards!

This week we are making Valentines for our sweeties, but that seemed a little to plain so we have added a little twist of metal to make it more interesting!  You can use any type of metal you want from charms to tin foil run through your Cuttlebug!  Just have fun with it, that’s all we care about!  😀
