The CRAFT Challenge this week is Animals. I used a “Must Have” stamp by DRS called, “Stained Glass.” DSR Designs actually make a number of variations of these stamps and that allow you to make a stained glass effect using them in combination with your other stamps. For more information, please check out their website and this fabulous tutorial. http://www.drsdesigns.com/stained-glass-pine-tree-card/. Also, you can run a search for DRS on my site to see other cards I have made.

For this card, I simply used the stained glass stamp to create a fun background for my deer die cuts. I coloured the background with Copic markers and added the deer, trees, frame, snowflakes, and sentiment.

This week at CRAFT, we are asking you to create a Christmas themed card/project. I am using a delightful little skating called, BUBBLES ICE SKATING by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – March 2018 – Sketch

Once again the 52 CCC design team is looking for a sketch. This one was developed by our talented Fabiola. I, for one, based my card off to the idea of the sketch. I used a rectangle vs a partial circle, a gear vs the star, and a portrait layout vs a horizontal one. For this card I used various Tim Holtz products including: stamps, dies, ink, embellishments, and embossing folders.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 457 – 1st of March – Sketch

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is challenging you to make a card using the sketch above. For my card, I have used Fairy Star Digi Stamp from the DigiStampShop (Digital Paper Craft) I started by colouring the fairy with my Copic markers. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the wings and star, then fussy cut her out, For a more finished look, I coloured the edges of the image with my black marker. To add a little drama, vs using an oval as the sketch indicates, I chose to use a Christmas tree die by Sizzix CHRISTMAS TREE CARD FLIP AND FOLD Thinlits Die Set 662281. The papers and gems are from my stash.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 456 – 22nd of February – Alien/Fantasy


With all the cards I make, I have very little children cards. This week’s challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Alien/ Fantasy is perfect for those “Make Believe” cards. I started with creating a space-themed card. Next, I thought -fantasy – unicorns, and flying elephants.

I started with painting a watercolour sky using Distress Ink Safty Ocean, water, and a waterbrush on watercolour paper. While that was drying, I cut out clouds from the Mama Elephant die set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. Next, I stamped my unicorns by MFT - BB Magical Unicorns, coloured them with Copic markers, added Wink of Stella to their horns, tail, and manes, and finally fussy cut them out. I assembled the card and added the sentiment also from the MFT Stamp set.


For my next card, I created the background using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6, on watercolour paper. I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped and coloured Mama Elephant’s – Space Bears with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and started assembling the card. I added hand drawn stars and air hoses for the space suits, and stamped my sentiments.

For my final card, I used another Mama Elephant stamp set called FLY WITH ME, the matching dies, and Mama Elephant dies set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. I coloured the critters with Copics. I arranged them on the card and stamped the balloons using a stamp set from Clearly Besotted ALL IN ONESIE Clear Stamp.
