Private Time - New images from Coosty Creations

Sitting Waiting by Coosty Creations
This is the 2nd week of our Use a Die challenge at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT), and one lucky winner will receive the super-duper September prize pack. StitchyBear's Digi Outlet has hundreds of digital products from many wonderful artists, one of which is Coosty Creations

I really enjoy using Coosty Creations' digis & paper packs (see my past projects here), so I was excited to get a chance to use her newest collection, Sitting Waiting.

My OSAAT teamies CraftyGirl and Anne Lise have also made unique projects using this fun digi collection!

I made a Potty Training Congratulations card... I don't have children, but I know what a frustrating process it can be for child and parent. So it seems like as good an occasion to celebrate as any!

In PhotoShop, I digitally paper-pieced some of the digi paper into the digi stamp image. I then printed it and colored the image with Copics, using the blender-texture technique for the floor. I used some pink flocking on her pretty boots.

Although it's almost impossible to see, I added lace & a blue background to to the window. I painted the toilet with Glossy Accents.

I created the door flap in SCAL and cut it on my Cameo. The door is cut from a shiny Core'Dinations cardstock and embossed with a SU! woodgrain embossing folder. I made a doorknob with a brad & made a little "privacy sign" with a Doodlebug tag die. I hand-wrote the sentiment with a purple glitter pen. The stars are cut/embossed from a toilet paper tube with a PageMakers die. I heat-embossed two of them with hot pink and purple.

I'm entering this card into the following fun Challenges:
Cards Galore Encore September Challenge: Make a Card
CMD-Challenge: Copics
Crafter's Cafe #81: Card for a child
Digi Sketch Challenge: Sketch and/or Theme, Girly (T)
Words 2 Scrap By: To Everything There Is a Season (I know this is a different take on theme, but somehow I think it's very appropriate! It is certainly an important part of growing up!)

Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time,


  1. Funny card! Thank you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Make A Card Challenge #9, Dawn DT Member x

  2. Hi, CG.

    Well, I have to say this is probably the most creative interpretation of this month's W2SB challenge that I have seen. I wouldn't have thought of a potty training card in a million years. But, you are absolutely right about this being such an important milestone. :)

    Thanks for being such a loyal supporter of Words 2 Scrap By! We really appreciate all you have done for us.

  3. This is hilarious! I love your take on the theme - the potty season is a momentous one in a kiddo's life. Thanks for playing along at!!
