This week the CRAFT Design Team challenges you to make a Thank You card. I used a simple technique of die layering. First I found a beautiful background paper then I created the word “Thank” using my large die letters. I taped them together with masking tape, positioned them on my paper and die cut them out. I moved the letters and set them aside. Next, I glued the background paper and the middle of the letter A onto the card backing. I cut out a second set of letters from black foam. I removed the letters and glue them in place on the card. Finally, I glued the die letters I had from the paper on top of the foam. This gives you a dimensional look. I added another die cut You and a purple butterfly. This is a very pretty look with minimal work involved.

I made a fun little graduation card for my friend’s grand daughter, and I thought it would also double as a thank you to her teacher for all her work ensuring that all her class passed to 2016-2017 school year. The owl digis is one by Dilly Beans called, “421 Hooter Framed”. I added the Graduation hat and scroll (a freebie) from Scrappers Delight. That is one reason why I love digi stamps, because you can easily resize them. I coloured the images with Copic markers, fussy cut them out and assembled the card. The inside sentiment says, “Thank you, Miss Johnson for helping me through the year.”

It is that popular wedding season again. We are challenging you to make a wedding card(s) this month. I actually made two different cards, pus a thank you card for the minister.
Card 1 – I used a digi stamp by A Day for Daisies called, “Wedding Veil.” I started by colouring the images with my Copics. It is really hard to notice, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Veil. I cut it out into an oval using my oval dies from MFT. I also cut a large Flourish using another die by MFT. I used a very pretty printed vellum as my background and layered the image and flourish. For the finally touch I added some gemstones.
For Card 2: I used a fun digi from Tiddley Inks called, “You and Me.” I decided to stay fairly neutral so I gray tones with skin and hair colours only. I cut thr image and background oval using my oval dies from MFT. Again I layered coloured vellum over a printed card stock. I used 4 gems to hid to glue dots I used to secure the corners.
Card 3: I made to be given to the minister after the ceremony. I included a small envelop and a slot to hold it inside the card for the donation to the church. For this card I relied on the beauty of the card stock. I cut it to suit the 5×7 card format, mini envelop, slot, and card envelop. The Thank you die is from IO.

The challenge this week is a colour challenge. I used a wonderful digi stamp by Sheep Ski Designs called Freesia Vase. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour the flowers in reds and yellows, the vase in light blue, and used dark and light blue to frame the images. The great thing about digi stamps is that you can resize them. I created 4 cards all using the same stamp but they are all different. The sentiment die cuts are from MFT.
Card 1 – I used the image as is.
Card 2 – I mirrored the image
Card 3 – I zoomed in on the image and only used part of the vase
Card 4- I zoomed in even further, duplicated the image and rotated to fit the corners

This week the Design Team has a Colour Challenge. You can use all or any combination of the colours. I decided to try to incorporate all the colours using a Digistamp – Flowers Dahlias by SLS Lines. I have fallen in love with my Derwent Watercolour Inktense pencils again so I used them to colour the image. The sentiment is found SSS. I used two copies of the stamp, fussy cut them out and arranged them on my A2 card.
