For our May Challenge, our Design Team is asking you to design a project using a Digi Stamp. Please also include a link to the digi stamp or the name of digi stamp and the stamp company name. Our challenge runs from May 5-26, 2017.
For my card I used a beautiful digi stamp from Silly Dilly Beans Stamps called, “Owl Will Always lLove You.” I started by printing two digi stamp on my Laser Printer. Next I added gold foil and black foil to the cards using my Minc machine. Next I coloured the image with my Copics Markers. For the final set I attached the image to wood texture kraft card stock, and then the card base.
Card 1 – Using gold foil.
Card 2 – Using black foil.
For our 414th Challenge we are asking you to try to make a 3D Decoupage project. This is one technique I do not do often so it is a challenge to me. My friend, Pearl, purchased a 3D Precut Card kit Cross Cut Out with Candle & Flowers sold through Ecstasy Crafts.
There were enough pieces in the kit to complete 8 different cards. The pieces are all precut so it is just a matter of assembling the 3D images. I used to two laser card card bases, and made to extra cards with black and white card stock. The sentiments are die cuts and stamps from Avery Elle and Verve. I made them all up as sympathy cards.
Please check out and support our weekly sponsor’s websites, who graciously provide our weekly/monthly prizes.
This challenge will last for the whole month of May 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!
Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.
Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.
For my card, I used Bugaboo’s SnowGlobe digis, called “Winter Bird”, Check out their website for other snowglobe designs! I coloured him with Coic markers, cut a pasted him on Christmas themed paper from my stock, added a sentiment sticker from Kaisercraft, and some snowflake stickers.
Please support our sponsor. Bugaboo stamps add new images weekly. They also have great sales and weekly freebies so you can try them out!
Note: Hazel also runs two other challenges -
The CRAFT Design Team is challenging you to create a card based on a book. For this challenge, the book I picked is called, “Grumpy Old Men by David Quantick”. The digi stamp I selected is by Bugaboo Stamps called, “GUS BIRTHDAY – OLD FART.” I love Bugaboo Stamps, but Ihave a soft spot in my heart for Gus and Stella. I coloured Gus with my Copic Marker, and added Glossy Accents to his glasses for that little extra. The stamp comes with the sentiment, but I wanted a slightly different arrangement so I computer generated it to fit with my card design.
Please check out all the great stamps at Bugaboo and support our wonderful sponsors.
We challenge you to make another Christmas card for youe 2017 stash! For this challenge I used another great image from Eureka Stamps - Dog Pile Digital Stamp ES-digi17703. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers. I made two cards using the same image just to show that placement of the image can change to look of the card. I used papers from my stash. The sentiment is from SSS.
