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.
Please join us October 8th. And check out the great digi stamps and papers at Imagine That. Support our Sponsors. Without them we would not be able to give away our fabulous prizes!
The 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)
This challenge runs from October 4th until October 16th.
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.
