C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 464 – 19th of April – New (Home, Baby, Job, etc)

The C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 464 is all about “NEW” – new baby, new job, new home, New Year’s, etc. I decided to create a card for a new car. I used Bugaboo’s - Gus Tidbits – New Truck. I coloured Gs and his truck with Copic markers and added a little chrome detail, plus glossy accents on his spectacles. This digital stamp also comes with a funny sentiment which I added to the inside of the card. I love Gus and Bugaboo has numerous digital stamps based on this character and his wife.

This week’s C.R.A.F.T. Challenge is Christmas. It is never too early to make Christmas cards. I made up a card using an adorable digital design by The Paper Shelter called, December 26th. I hand coloured Santa using Copic markers, added Stickles to the fur aspects of his outfit, then framed the image using cardstock from my stash. The sentiment was included on the bottom edge of the Christmas paper. For the final touch, I added a few sequins.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 462 – 5th of April – Get well soon

The CRAFT Challenge for this week is to make a Get Well Soon Card. I am a huge Big Bang Theory fan, and love when Sheldon gets sick and they sing “Soft Kitty”, so I designed my card around that theme. I actually made two cards using three different Dr. Digi Stamps -  SchrödingerTyson & Topsy, and Tea Cup. The great thing with digi stamps is that you can size them to order, so I made the cats just the right size to fit into the cup. I coloured the cats and cups with Copics and paper pieced one cup as well. The inside of the card has the “Soft Kitty” song.

For the CRAFT Challenge 261, we are looking for a Shaped Card. I used a SVG file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Explore Air called Teacup Card Set. This set includes 2 different teapot designs, plus envelopes. If you don’t own a Silhouette, Cricut, Brother cutting machine, no worries because the Cutting Cafe also includes the template pattern that allows you to manual cut out the card. I also added a flower I created using one of my dies from Marianne Designs, The sentiment id from SSS.

It is the end of March and “hopefully” Sring is in the air! The CRAFT design team challenges you to make a Spring or Easter card. I think of Spring and I automatically think of flowers.
