DTbadge

For this week’s challenge you are to make a card using White and one other colour. I used Black, White, and a light shade of Blue for one card, and Black, White and Red for the other. This week’s sponsor is Eureka Stamps, and they have a diverse line of unmounted and cling mounted images, encompassing over 30 theme areas… from “accents” to “winter” and over 1500 images in between along with over 1000 of these images available in digital (digi) format. I made 4 cards using 2 of their fabulous stamps, Crying Lamb ES-digi13802 and Party Poopers ES-digi14303. For the touch of colour on the images I used my Spectrum Noir Markers.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 410 – 6th of April – Colour Combo

This week’s challenge is  COLOUR COMBO. We challenge you to use all the colours in the challenge above.

For the challenge, I broke out my Spectrum Noir markers. I used a pretty digi called, “Love the Shop” by one of this week’s sponsors,  All Dressed Up. I used all the colours for their outfits, plus additional colours for hair and faces. The sentiment is from SSS.

CR.A.F.T. – Challenge 392 – 1st of December – Colour Combo

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

My Mediterranean Cruise & Crop with Cathie Rigby

I just got back from an amazing holiday! With almost 3 years in the planning, my girlfriend, Pearl, and I took an amazing trip to Europe – Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Tuscany, Roman, Amalfi Coast, Venice, Ravenna, and Kotor. Best trip ever! The beauty about a Cruise and Crop is that you Crop during the sailing days. Our Crop leader, Cathie Rigby did not disappoint! Here are  few of the fun things we made on the cruise.

 Note: I did not discuss the “how to” techniques of these projects out of respect for the teacher. These projects are based on Cathie Rigby’s designs/techniques, taught to us by her in a classroom environment on the Cruise and Crop. Cathie offers retreats, classes, online instruction, and Cruise and Crops. Her next adventure is a cruise from Australia to New Zealand! For details about Cathie and her multiple talents, visit her at her website at Cathie’s Craft Room - http://www.creativecutterroom.com/ . She is a fabulous instructor and I am happy to call her my friend. The classes were small and intimate. We had a great bunch of ladies in the classes, and their friends and families joined us for dinner and some of the shore excursions. As I said before - Best Trip Ever!

Inspiration picture 040216To start the month, the CRAFT Challenge is based on an inspirational picture. I took the inspiration photo quite literally. I used stamps from my own stock. I love the critters from Paper Smooches. I used the bunny from A Little Lovin  and the cat from Chubby Chums  . I coloured them using Copic markers. The fun paper is from my stash, and the sentiment die is Savvy Stamps – Die – Hello Bubble .
