This week we got our inspiration from a book. I was just reading, “MOLTO GUSTO BY MARIO BATALI’”, and thought The Paper Shelter’s, “Pizza Chef” was perfect for my card design. I started the card by die cutting an “oven” mitt using the largest die from Sellbinder’s -Shapeabilities – Nested Mittens. Next I printed, coloured (with Copics) . and fussy cut out the chef and pizza. Final step was the assemble the card. On the inside I computer generated the sentiment, “I stole a Pizza of my heart!”

Our focus for Challenge 83 is Stamp or Digi only. I absolutely love Penny Black’s, “Snow Family”. What says Christmas better than, not one but, three snowmen! I coloured the little family with my Copic Markers using bright and fun colours. I framed them with a coloured red snowflake patterned paper. The sentiment – let it snow – uses one of the die cuts by Penny Black called Joyous Wishes.
Our challenges runs from April 24th until May 5th.

It is never too early to start your Christmas card stash. This week the design team is inspiring you to do just that. I used an adorable stamp from Bugaboo Stamps called Chubby Snowman. I coloured him with my Copic markers, fussy cut him out and set him aside. Next I die cut the background using Papertrey Ink – Cover Plate: Winter Floral Die. I die cut it out in green and sandwiched with red card stock. I popped the snowman o the front using dimensional, and added a sentiment also from PI.

The Design Team is Challenging you to create a card with Stitching (real or faux). I haven’t had my sewing machine out in over 10 years, but I have purchased a number of the new, popular faux stitching dies. My BFF and I are going on one of those Cruise and Crop trips in June, so I had travel on the brain when I designed my card. I used two dies sets to create the illusion of stitching: Simon Says, “BUNDLE OF STITCHED SHAPES Wafer Dies” and MFT, “Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 5″. I cut out the stitched base, then added two stitched luggage tags and a sentiment tag. The sentiment and camera girl are from Taylored Expressions, “Moka Meredith – Traveler”. I coloured her with Copic markers, fussy cut her out and added dimensionals so she would pop off the page. I finished the card by adding three black gems.

For this Challenge, the design team challenges you to make a scene using your stamps, dies, punches, etc. I made a winter scene using two stamp sets: Let it Snow by Avery Elle and Winter Hills Stamp Set by Papertrey Ink.
I started by stamping the blocked house scene, and larger house. I coloured the roofs and front door with my Copic Markers. Next I created the card front. I hand cut a hill template, then sponged light blue ink to create the snow covered hills. Next using the same ink I stamped the snowflakes. I added the tree, snowman, and hand drew the path. I fussy cut out the larger house and attached it to the card front with SU dimensions. I cut out the blocked scene and created a banner. I backed it with light blue card stock and attached to card with dimensions. I added a die cut snowflake I had lying on my desk. Finally I backed the card on the same light blue card stock and taped to card base.
