C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 473 – 21st of June – Summer

This week the CRAFT Design Team challenges you to make a card for Summer! I started my quest looking for a summer paper and found a perfect one in my Couture Creations – Sea Breeze 6 x 6 paper pack. Next, I stamped an Impression Obsession image called Blue Booby. I think he and the sentiment (from the same set) were perfect. I coloured him with Copics. I fussy cut him out and inked the edge of the cardstock with a black marker.

This week the CRAFT Design Team is challenging you to make a Christmas themed card. For the challenge, I made a wintery scene using Stampin’ Up’s, Polar Bear from Zoo Review Stamp Set. I stamped him on white cardstock and used a B015 Copic marker the draw around him to add some shadow. Next, I cut him out left part of the card stock to remain as snow. I glued him on a patterned paper and used a pre-designed sentiment from Kaiser Craft. In hindsight, I should have edged the polar bear which a black marker so the white card was not noticeable.

The design team at CRAFT challenge you to make a card and add some ribbon and sparkle. I love the dolls that were created by Julie Nutting at Prima Marketing. The little girl I used is called Abby. She was one of my first dollies, and still one of my favourites. I stamped her, coloured her skin and hair with Copic markers, then paper pieced her dress. Next, I added some gems to her belt and a ribbon bows. I glue her on the most sparkly paper by Kaiser craft I had in my stash.

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for a project that focuses on Outdoors Play. I selected an adorable digital stamp called, “Captain Owen” by Paper Nest Dolls. I made two versions of this stamp. I started by printing the image in two different sizes and coloured Owen with my Copic Markers. To embellish the card I used various papers, wooden pieces, die cuts from my stash.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 387 – Use some Silver

CHNC blog button DT

For our weekly challenge at CHNCCC we are looking for silver. I purchased this little reindeer die by Tonic Studios called, Baby Rudolph. I cut him out twice, once with a shiny silver cardstock, then again with a matt silver. I ended up with two paper pieced deer cards. The paper and stickers are from my stash. I have included a close up of both versions of my reindeer.
