The Stamping Boutique "Spring Oriented (flowers, pastels, etc.)" Challenge

It's that time again to share with you a new challenge from The Stamping Boutique.  This week's challenge is Spring Oriented (flowers, pastels, etc.)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time spend with your family and friends.  Now it's time to get back to being crafty and maybe even break out those new Christmas crafting goodies that were under the tree this year.

I used The Stamping Boutique image "Turtle"

For this card I chose to use the blue and green pastels of spring time.  I also went with the classic spring time sentiment to capture the essence of a spring oriented theme.  I also think that this turtle image from the stamping boutique is super cute and I just needed to pull him out again to use on a card.

So spring on over to The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog and get all the details on how you can participate in this week's challenge. Also see other great cards and projects by the rest of the design team and be inspired to create your own masterpiece.

The Stamping Boutique "Anything but a card" Challenge

Hello All, I am very excited to share with you this next project and challenge from the Stamping Boutique.  I've had this idea for awhile ever since the image "Elephant with Umbrella" was released a few months back.  When looking over the assignments and trying to decide for this week's challenge I knew this was it I could do a baby canvas project.  This is the first project I've been able to make for my upcoming baby other than I few scrapbook pages with ultrasound photos and such. I'm not only excited to share this with you all but also to be able to decorate the nursery with this cute baby canvas!

So without further explanation here is a picture of the project,

For the background I used some blue metallic paint that has a green tint to it. It seems the colour changes depending on the light hitting it.   I printed the image "Elephant with Umbrella" and printed it out pretty big to fit nicely on the canvas.  Then the image itself is coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers. The letters spelling "BABY" I got forever ago at Michael's for $1 I believe and I was finally able to use them and they worked perfectly for this project. 

Take a look at the blog for this week's challenge and find more inspiration from the other members of the design team.  This is a great project to participate in and get crafty in new ways if you're usually just  a card maker.  I know I enjoyed created something that wasn't a card and I'm very happy with how this turned out.   All the information you need is over on the blog.
