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.

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

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.”
