Gosh, Christmas and Valentine’s Day just passed, and Mother’s Day and Easter are fast approaching! Our challenge this week is the create a Mother’s Day Card. I decided to dust off my Cricut machine and using a fabulous Cascade Card design from Dreaming Tree, I created a Mother’s Day card.

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for the addition of something wooden. A year ago, I purchased 50 adorable wooden ladybugs and along with StarStampz - Spring Ladybug Digi Stamp I made a cute general Hello card. I printed the image using my laser printer, then ran the image through my Minc machine using shiny black foil. Next I added colour with my Copic markers. I used B&W dotted paper(MFT) a flourish, stitched circle die (MFT), and Hello sentiment (SSS).

This week at C.R.A.F.T. we are looking for a card with a back to school theme. For my card, I combined School Boy Andy from Pink Gem Designs and the Schoolhouse SVG card from Dreaming Tree. For andy, I printed the digital design with my laserjet computer, coloured him with Copic Markers, fussy cut him out and set aside. Next using the instructions from Dreaming Tree, I used my computer, Design Space, my Cricut Explorer Air, and cut and pasted the school bus card together. The final touch was the add Andy to the front. The inside of the card has a slot for a gift card.

This challenge runs for 2 weeks!

Simply Create Too – Challenge #141 – 8/3 to /8/31 – Create a Bookmark

1 Simply Create 2 DT

 

Our monthly challenge at Simply Create Too! is to create a bookmark. Well, I couldn’t just make a bookmark, I had to make a card with a bookmark, then a separate bookmark to match the same theme. For my project, I used stamps from Honey Bee Stamps - UNDER THE SEA and ZEN OCEAN. I started by stamping the Zen Sea with Versamark Ink, adding black embossing powder then colouring it with TH Oxide Inks. The mermaids were embossed with gold embossing powder and coloured with Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out and set aside. I used an older die and stamp set from Our Daily Bread to make the bookmarks (retired). I also used a you sentiment from SSS and Celebrate die set from Hero Arts.
