C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 428 – 10th of August – Anything Goes

DTbadge

For this week’s challenge, I decided to try out a couple of dies I have. I started by embossing the background with one of my stash folders. Next I die cut a trellis (by Impression Obsessions) out in black and a garden trellis (by Poppy Stamps)out in white. I liked the different effects of each so I decided on making 2 cards vs one. Next I made 4 purple cone-flowers/stem and leaves made with Elizabeth Craft designs. The sentiment is by Penny Black. I added ribbon and pre-made kraft butterflies from my stash

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 427 – 3rd of August – Colour Combo

 DTbadge

This week we challenge you to make a card using the colors we posted. I decided I would try to match the inks using peg stamps and creating my own images. I made more than one image and used a number of the colors from the challenge. The stamps I used are from Card-io Clear Stamp sets and Majestix Peg Stamps for Papercraft. I used my Hero Art Ink pads, and the sentiments are from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamps.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 426 – 27th of July – Summer

DTbadge

I love summer, and when I think of summer, I think of the Beach. Bugaboo Digi Stamps make a series of adorable Mermaid and fish themed stamp set called, “UNDER THE SEA BIRTHDAY SET“. I made a series of cards utilizing all the cute images. I coloured them with Copic markers and layered them on papers from my stash. The sentiments are from the same set.

Making a Good Thing Better

I purchased these black on off-white note cards from Michael’s, but I just had to tszuj them up with die cut birds, butterflies and dragonflies. I coloured them with Copics, added new sentiments, and inked around the edges with Distress ink. They were 4 cards per pack and only $1.00.

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 “Fun in the Sun.” I designed two different cards for this challenge. Click on the link below to find out more about this fabulous group, The Outlawz Challenges. I made two cards for this challenge. This month’s sponsor is Whimsy Stamps.

Card 1: For my first card,  The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Vintage Sentiments.” This is my “Go To” for digital sentiment stamps. There are 14 general script sentiment stamps with this file. I used an adorable Bugaboo (retired) stamp  called, “Sumduckdive.”. I coloured him with Copics, fussy cut him out and set aside. Next I arranged the layout and using Sun die from MFT - SUN, MOON & STARS, and the wave and fish dies from Marianne Designs - Eline’s Whale and Eline’s Tropical Fish. I assembled the card using glue and dimensionals and added some gem bubbles for the finishing touch.
