Perfect time of year to say Thank You to your favorite Teacher at All Dressed Up!

What with this being May and many
schools closing for summer vacation and many students graduating from all different levels of education, our "Artist in Residence" Wendy Burns, has been busy with this month's new All Dressed Up release images!  The one I was privileged to use is named No 1 Teacher.  It's the perfect way to show a little kindness, gratitude for filling your child with lots of knowledge through the years and say Thank You to that special Teacher. 
Using some brick design paper and some mathematical paper, I created the scene.   I fancy cut around the teacher and her desk assortment-whew that was done very carefully!  To give her some more depth, I raised her up on some dimensional foam dots.
On the inside, I used some black chalkboard paper with designs and a Best Wishes stamp I had in my stash.  Along with the teacher image, Wendy created 2 other Father's Day celebration images that are terrific and an adorable girl with butterflies.  Her images are always such fun to color! 
Remember to pop over and buy them from our Etsy store and don't forget we have two challenges running right now - 

ending on the eve of the 14th 

ending on the last day on the month.

May is Graduation time -Especially over at Paper Nest Dolls!

This new May release image from Paper Nest Dolls is called Grad Avery 2018.  There's also an image with Glasses and one with Noah celebrating.  Great for all those Special cards for friends and family!
I colored her with copics and matted her on a rich red cardstock.  As I didn't want the focus on DP and more on the Image, I kept the background in just appropriate sentiment paper.  I also added some dimensional embellishments that are everywhere in the craft stores now.  On the inside, there's some more brighter colored graduation paper and lots of room to write those good luck wishes.
This is the start of our May Challenge so please check it out and let us see your talent and give us some inspiration!  We can't wait to see your creations!

Springtime over at The Paper Nest Dolls with Ellie!

This week for Paper Nest Dolls, I'm using Ellie with Flowers--perfect for Springtime that will Hopefully come to Illinois soon!
I love this bright blue and yellow combination for my Get Well card-I'm always needing those.  To me this copic colored image is perfectly framed with a denim looking paper and crisp polka-dotted background.
I used a Stampin' Up stamp and yellow mini buttons for accents.   I repeated the dotted paper as the liner inside the card and a circle stamp for a sentiment.
So, as this is a REMINDER to you, come over to our challenge to enter your creation and maybe win a prize!  We'd love to see your projects!

Spring is coming to All Dressed Up!! Introducing some New Design Team members!

 I know here in Illinois, we are still having some chilly weather-How about you?  Well this adorable image from All Dressed Up sure does warm me up-it's named Pretty as a Picture.  And, this is usually the way I am in Spring & Summer, out among the multitude of flowers.  I took a few liberties with her, adding some grass and dirt in the foreground, polka-dots on her dress.  But, she really is an image that could be a CAS card also.
I used a 6.25 square card because I wanted to have room for some extra flowers-but, being digital, you could size her to work with whatever base you wanted. I added some gingham ribbon for a side accent. On the inside I repeated the soft background, added a color close butterfly and a sentiment with an epoxy dot.
If this doesn't make you think of Springtime instead of the cold winterish weather many of us have been having, I don't know what will!
Today on the All Dressed Up site, we are reminding you that we have a challenge going on and we'd love to see all of your creations!  But in addition, We are introducing some wonderfully talented gals to you-they will be joining the Design Team and we are so happy to have them here.  They are very inspiring and I hope that you will check out the blogs of all the DT!
