This will be my final card I make as a member of the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team. It has been a fabulous 4.5 years and I will truly miss working with Jo and her wonderful team. The C.R.A.F.T. challenge this week is to distress our project. I used a SVG digital file simply called Ice Skate card delightful cut by Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I downloaded the project to Cricut Design Space and cut out the pieces. Before assembling the skate I distressed and inked each piece using the Tim Holtz distress blade tool and Distress ink. Vs using the circle holes for the skate, I opted to use my We R Memory Keeping Eyelet punch and used twine laces. I added a Merry tag by Kaisercraft.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT15-19 – April 20th – Theme: Snarky

This week at 52 Christmas Card Challenge we are looking for a Snarky/Funny themed card.  When I think snarky, I automatically think of Bugaboo Digital Stamps! They have some of the funniest characters! I used the stamp, Gus Birthday – Old Fart. I changed his hat from a birthday hat to a Santa hat, coloured the image with my Copics, and created my own sentiment based on a wall hanging I saw this past Christmas at Bouclair’s.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 510 – 18th of April – Recipe

For our CRAFT challenge this week, Jo is inviting everyone to design a card based on a recipe. It must include an image, 2 ribbons, and 3 patterned papers. This challenge was especially fun as I used papers designed by our own Design Team Leader, Jo at Trimgym’s Digistamps, Papers and Images.  For my image, I used a cute mouse and snowflake by Penny Black that I coloured with my Copics.

The CRAFT design team is trying to help you establish your Christmas card stash, so we have another Christmas card challenge. I decided to do something a little non-traditional. I used a fun silhouette digi stamp called, Roping Santa Digital Stamp Q-digi13709 by QKR Stampede. I started by printing the digi using my laserjet printer. Next, with my Minc embossed the image with black foil. Using Distress Ink I blended a sunset background. Finally still using Distress Ink and Versafine ink, and a retired western themed stamp set by the late Waltzingmouse Stamp Co. I stamped the mountain/desert background. The sentiment was from cardstock from my stash.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 508 – 4th of April – Inspired by a Song

Click here to go to challenge blog

The C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for a project inspired by a song. With St. Patrick’s Day just passed, I was listening to the Irish Rovers. One of my favourite songs is their Unicorn Song. Yesterday was my honorary granddaughter’s Fourth birthday. Her theme was “Unicorn Princess”. I racked my brain for ideas because I wanted to make her something extra special. I ended up with a Unicorn Princess paperscape shadowbox. For the base of the picture I used Dreaming Tree’s, For Mom SVG Bundle and added the Unicorn Princess SVG from Printable Cuttable Creatables. All the papers, gems, pearls, were from my stash. The shadow box was picked up when Hobby Lobby had their buy one get one free sale. Everything was cut with my Cricut Explore Air and Design Space. I did cut 4 sets of eyelashes and doubled them up for more dimension. My granddaughter loved it. She loves her bling! Note: It was hard to photograph as the picture was behind glass.
