I made a fun little graduation card for my friend’s grand daughter, and I thought it would also double as a thank you to her teacher for all her work ensuring that all her class passed to 2016-2017 school year. The owl digis is one by Dilly Beans called, “421 Hooter Framed”. I added the Graduation hat and scroll (a freebie) from Scrappers Delight. That is one reason why I love digi stamps, because you can easily resize them. I coloured the images with Copic markers, fussy cut them out and assembled the card. The inside sentiment says, “Thank you, Miss Johnson for helping me through the year.”

It is that popular wedding season again. We are challenging you to make a wedding card(s) this month. I actually made two different cards, pus a thank you card for the minister.
Card 1 – I used a digi stamp by A Day for Daisies called, “Wedding Veil.” I started by colouring the images with my Copics. It is really hard to notice, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Veil. I cut it out into an oval using my oval dies from MFT. I also cut a large Flourish using another die by MFT. I used a very pretty printed vellum as my background and layered the image and flourish. For the finally touch I added some gemstones.
For Card 2: I used a fun digi from Tiddley Inks called, “You and Me.” I decided to stay fairly neutral so I gray tones with skin and hair colours only. I cut thr image and background oval using my oval dies from MFT. Again I layered coloured vellum over a printed card stock. I used 4 gems to hid to glue dots I used to secure the corners.
Card 3: I made to be given to the minister after the ceremony. I included a small envelop and a slot to hold it inside the card for the donation to the church. For this card I relied on the beauty of the card stock. I cut it to suit the 5×7 card format, mini envelop, slot, and card envelop. The Thank you die is from IO.

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. For my card I used an oval verses a circle and adjusted the sketch to fit a standard A2 card format. I used a digi from Delicious Doodles, called “On the Lookout”. I stop coloured it with my Copics. Next I cut it out using my oval Dienamics from MFT. I cut out some white embossed card stock and layered it according to the sketch.

For my card I used Bugaboo’s Digi Stamp, “WinBird Skate (retired).” I coloured him with Copic markers. I die cut a pair of skates using die from Sizzix. I layered the little bird on the skates and used diagonal striped paper for the background. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
Please join us. The challenge runs all month long.
I am sorry I was a little late posted our current challenge. This challenge is based on a Sketch. I used an adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley Stamps called, “Present Trio.” This stamp is really not a Christmas stamp, but I thought I would improvise. I started with colouring the little bears with my Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out. The sentiment is from a Lawn fawn Christmas based 6 x 6 paper pad. Once I adhered the images and sentiment, I added some die cut snowflakes from Marianne Designs to give the card a more festive feel. The finally touches were adding clear Wink of Stella to the presents, glossy accents to the bears noses, and a few gems.
Our Challenges run two weeks. Please join us, we would love to see your festive creations.
