C.R.A.F.T.-Challenge 332-October 8th – Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving


At CRAFT this week we definitely are thinking about the “fall” season. I make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween cards for all the residents at the Belmont Nursing Home so I opted for a Halloween card. I used 5 of the digital papers from Imagine That! Digistamps – Fabulous Fall for my background design. The mummy character is from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. The sentiment is from PI.

101 Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving Cards

Every year I make 130 Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving Cards for all the residents at the Belmont Long Term Care Facility as a way to Pay it Forward for the wonderful care they provided my mother. I have been making a few cards over the past year, but had the concentrate on making 101 this past week. I try to not make more than 6 cards the same so each resident on the 6 wings of the facilities gets a different card than their roommate or neighbour. All coloured images were done with paper piecing or coloured with Copics.

Here are samples of the different cards I made. Note: If you want details about any of these cards re: stamps used, dies, etc just contact me.

The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 69 – Green and Gold

SidebarglorykleinerThe Glory of Christmas Challenge this week is to create a card using Green and Gold. I opted to use white as my non-color background, so to set off the green and gold.

I cut out the poinsettia (Memory Box) three times, offset each die cut and glue together. Next I cut out two of the pine branches (Impression Obsession). Finally I die cut two fishtail banners (MFT): one in gold, and one in white (which I embossed). I assembled the card and added a sentiment from Paper Smooches. To finish the card I added a gold gem to the flower center. (I coloured the clear gem using my Copic markers)

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 331 – 1st of October – Sketch

This week at CRAFT we are having a Sketch Challenge. For this challenge I used a digi stamp called Wee One Bugs – Ladybug by Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured her with Copic markers, fuzzy cut her out, then layered her on plain and scalloped rectangle die cuts from MFT. I also used 3D ladybugs and ribbon from my stash, heart die cuts from Stampin’ Up, and a sentiment from Impression Obsessions.
