Today I want to share some ATCs that I created for Sunflowers and Dragonflies using the "Beautiful Life Series." These are some beautiful stamps and so worth creating with. This week we challenge you to create ATCs. This challenge will be so much fun. ATCs are beautiful pieces of art measured at 3 1/2 X 2 1/2. They lend themselves to all sorts of possibilities and provide so many options to show off your little beauties.
My ATCs are below:
I used Lottie & her coordinating flourish. I chose to color, shade, and airbrush with copics: E29, E13, E12.
On this ATC, I used Cheyenne and her coordinating flourish. I also used copics: R02, R12, R0000 to color. The background for both Ladies were colored with copics as well.
You have an opportunity to win any two of the the beautiful ladies in the Beautiful Life Series by participating in our challenge and following the challenge requirements. The challenge ends this Friday. Show us what you can do with your own ATCs!!! Good Luck!!!

Love this cupcake!! It is by Sunflowers and Dragonflies and so perfect for Birthdays, Thinking of you, as well as Celebrations. My cupcake layer is a 2 X 2 (Twinchie) with additional coordinating layers. I colored my cupcake with copics and added stickles to dazzle you a little..:) I also added some Basic Grey paper along with some Creme Brulee CTMH embossed cardstock. To make this card pop just a tad, I added some scalloped borders in chocolate. All papers and cardstock were aged with vintage photo distress ink.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Hugs, Karen

I decided to create a card with my inchie using some paper from K and Co. My inchie is a cupcake by Sunflowers and Dragonflies. It is absolutely the most precious little stamp. I colored my cupcake with copics and added some stickles. I then put my cupcake in my little air brushed i'kandee frame and added it to my card.
Don't forget. You get an opportunity to win some goodies if you participate in our challenge. This week the winner of the challenge will get 1 of each 1 1/4 cupcake as shown on our blog.
Thanks for stopping by...:)

One of the most awesome things about our craft is that we get an opportunity to challenge each other daily, weekly, and monthly. Sunflowers and Dragonflies challenges you this week in creating a card using the Faux Stitch technique. The deadline for the challenge is Friday, January 15th. You have an opportunity to win 2 beautiful stamps from the Beautiful Life series.
Faux Stitching adds so much character to cards and lends itself to so many opportunities. I absolutely loved working with this technique this week. My card is shown below.
I chose to use Amber for this technique. The card is an A2 size with layers of Basic Grey papers. I faux stitched around Amber and the layer underneath her. Amber was airbrushed with copic markers for a soft look. I added ribbon and metals to complete the card. Please visit our blog to join in the challenge and to see all of the beautiful work of the design team using the faux stitch technique. Enjoy, Karen

Today, I am sharing a card that I created using the Mahone Bay stamp by Sunflowers and Dragonflies. I coupled the stamp with some La Creme paper by DCWV and some coordinating ribbon. My flower was airbrushed with copic markers YR31, E33, and 100 (Black). I also added some gems and an acrylic tag that was backed with La Creme paper. Enjoy!
