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

Click here to go to challenge blog

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.

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. For this challenge, I used a beautiful digi by Eureka Stamps called, “Abstract Flower Digital Stamp”. I printed the images using my laserjet printer and Cannonwatercolour paper.I coloured it with watercolour paints - Finetec MICA WATERCOLOR PEARLESCENT Paint 6, ig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, and Prima watercolour crayons. The Hello die is from Impression Obsessions.

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

DTbadge

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.

Outlawz – Thursday with a Twist – June 22nd*

GuestDesignerBadge2017

*I made the two cards shown below for next week’s challenge, “Anything Goes” but they were accidentally posted for this week’s challenge. The reason I mention this is because they really don’t depict “Fun in the Sun.” They were able to add the correct cards so these are sort of  a bonus. Things happen, sorry for any confusion.  - Myrna

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Anything Goes.”  I designed two different cards for this challenge. Click on the link below to find out more about this fabulous group!The Outlawz ChallengesI made two cards for this challenge.

Card 1: For my first card, I was going for a vintage feel. I used various stamps from Tim Holtz and one of his newer dies called, Dapper.” I used a retired background stamp by JustRite for the card background, brown card stock, dimensional foam tape, and distress inks to add dimension/texture. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Vintage Sentiments.”

Card 2: I wanted to make a more modern, colourful card for my second card. I used a stamp set from Psper Smooches called, “Metropolis.” I coloured the images with Copic Markers.I fussy cut everything out. Next I arranged the cityscape and glued everything to the base card. The final step was adding the sentiment. I used a SU tag punch to cut the sentiment out. I cut a duplicate tag in red, cut it in half, then outlined the sentiment. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments.”
