A Prize for a Sponge!!

Hi bloggers, whooohoooo, its prize time at the Drunken Stampers Blog this week. Yep, that's right we have a fabulous sponsor this week to match our terrifically fabulous theme!! This weeks theme is "Are You Sponge Worthy" so we are looking for sponged backgrounds.  The winner will receive 3 digital images of their choice.  One restriction to note however, is that the card must be new and not be entered in any other challenges to be eligible.  So,.......... are you anxious to find out who our sponsor is? (drum roll please....ddddddddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) 

and to tell you more of this fabulous sponsor we are happy to introduce Tracy:
Im Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor Drunken Stampers! My store has been open since September 2009. I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I’ve worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I’m a professional artist and an active member of the Artist’ Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It’s noisy, but I love them all. I’m truly blessed.
“The Stamping Boutique” is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as,
their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.
Now for my card.  I saw this image and couldn't resist!! My plan was to actually show you how to adapt and use images for more than cards by making a little top and jeans set using this image, however, unfortunately my sewing machine is on the blink!!! Darn it! However, as you can see the image is equally cute as an Easter Card.

Well, since jeans were my original plan for this little cutie, I thought I would sponge a jean effect using a sponge (of course) and Distress Ink in Faded Jeans.  The bunny was also sponged using Distress ink in Pumice Stone!!  I have actually not used this technique in a looooooooong time and had forgotten how fun and easy to do.  I really love the effect!

Ok bloggers, now its your turn! Grab your sponges and get too creating gorgeous cards or projects for your chance to win this fabulous prize.  Now be sure to check out my fellow designers blogs for their super inspiring projects and of course visit our sponsors blog for further inspiration.  

Be sure to link your cards before 11:59 pm, Friday 8th April to be eligible for the prize.  You can link your creations by clicking here.  Until next time, thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping/stamping.

Its All About Him!

Hi bloggers, back again with another post for the Drunken Stampers this week.  Challenge# 60 is now underway and this weeks theme is......."All About Him".  Yep that's right all things that celebrate the men in your life.  I can't wait to see the entries for this one.  I have already previewed some of the DT's cards and their projects are STUNNING, so be sure to check them out.  As usual their links are in my side bar.  Now for my card:

Well this was a fun one, however a bit of a challenge for me since I don't often make projects geared towards men.  My task however, was made easier by this super cute stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps.  How cute is he??? I looooove him.   The background paper is also super awesome and terrifically matched to this image and was created by the very talented Cristy Croll owner and creator of all the Tiddly Inks images.  As any of you following my blog will know, I have just started getting into creating dangles and charms and as such I could not resist in making "treasure" to attach to this card.  It has been attached to a "memento" pin which has been secured between layers of the dimensional tape which makes the bottom corner of the card raised.  I was pleased with the final result.  That is it from me today ladies, however don't forget to visit my fellow DT's as their projects are truly inspiring.  Till next time....happy scrapping/stamping.

Computer Issues!

Hi bloggers, just wanted to let everyone know that over the past couple of weeks I have been experiencing major computer issues, crashes and interruptions.  I has been making it very hard for me to post and has caused major delays.  You will also have noticed limited "appearances" at challenge sites and other blogs and this has also been caused by these issues.  I really appreciate your patience and apologise for any delays.  Thanks everyone. :-)
