C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 361 – Inspired by a Book

DTbadgeThis week we got our inspiration from a book. I was just reading, “MOLTO GUSTO BY MARIO BATALI’”, and thought The Paper Shelter’s, “Pizza Chef” was perfect for my card design. I started the card by die cutting an “oven” mitt using the largest die from Sellbinder’s -Shapeabilities – Nested Mittens. Next I printed, coloured (with Copics) . and fussy cut out the chef and pizza. Final step was the assemble the card. On the inside I computer generated the sentiment, “I stole a Pizza of my heart!”

Simply Create Too Challenge 103- Use Pink or Red Only


For our current challenge, we are asking you to create a card using Pink or Red Only. Your can also use a base colour. I chose to use a white base with two shades of pink. I just got a new stamp and die set from Stampin’ Up called Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set/Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies. The die set includes a separate large and small flower so I cut them out and layered them on the large floral heart. I decorated the card with a pink ribbon and mini white pearls.

For our Love/Valentine’s/Anniversary Challenge 348, I picked “Love”. I selected a cute little love bird from SamiStamps – called “Be Mine Feathers” . I coloured her in various shades of yellow with Copics, and layered her on paper from my stash. I made two variations  using different “love” themed dies.
