C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 455 – 15th of February – Mothers’ Day/Female


The CRAFT CHALLENGE this week is to make a Mother’s Day or Female Card. I have a friend who loves everything “Pug”, so when I discovered this stamp by CARABELLE STUDIO called, “To Be or Not To Be”, I just had to make her a card. I started by colouring the dog with Copic markers to match her own little pug. Next, I die cut it out using a double stitched circle die from MFT, selected a paper with picture frames, added glass frames from dies by Taylored Expressions, and finished with adding Glossy Accents to the pug’s glasses.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 454 – 8th of February – Christmas (humorous)


For this week’s Challenge, the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is asking you to make a Christmas card with a twist – add Humour! I have this great Pug stamp from Clearly Besotted called, “BAH HUM-PUG!” I coloured my puppies with Copics, fussy cut them out and arranged on various cardstock from my stash. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 453 – 1st of February – Three of a Kind


This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is challenging you to think of Three of a Kind. For my card, I decided to try out my new Altenew Layering Stamp – Tulip Stamp Set. I love tulips. They are my favorite flowers! With this stamp set, you stamp various coloured inks (Hero Arts/Stampin’ Up) in layers vs hand colouring the image. I used my Misti to help me line up the stamps and I think I did a pretty good job on my first attempt. The grass was created using a Lawn Fawn die.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 452 – 25th of January – Distress your project/Vintage


For the CRAFT Challenge this week, I went more with a vintage card vs distressed. I used an older stamp I have from Stampendous called Snowy Postcard. I created a vignette around the edge of the postcard using three brown tones of distress inks. I also added glitter holly die cuts for that little extra. I pasted the image on Neehan Desert Storm card stock.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 451 – 18th of January – Love/Valentines


For this week’s challenge, I used multiple stamps and dies. The little pug is from Newton’s Nook – Pug Hugs, Flowered Heart is from Concord and 9th – You Are Here. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted – Playful Pooches. I coloured the images with Copic markers, fussy cut the images out and pasted them on the card stock.
