The CRAFT Challenge for this week is to make a Get Well Soon Card. I am a huge Big Bang Theory fan, and love when Sheldon gets sick and they sing “Soft Kitty”, so I designed my card around that theme. I actually made two cards using three different Dr. Digi Stamps - Schrödinger, Tyson & Topsy, and Tea Cup. The great thing with digi stamps is that you can size them to order, so I made the cats just the right size to fit into the cup. I coloured the cats and cups with Copics and paper pieced one cup as well. The inside of the card has the “Soft Kitty” song.

We tend to make more female cards than male cards. With Father’s Day coming we are challenging you to make either a Father’s Day card, or a card more suitable for a guy. For this challenge I used an adorable stamp by Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps called, Summer Holidays.” I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out and put him aside. Next using a retired map background stamp by JustRite I stamped a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white and kraft card stock. I coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks. I made one card suitable for a Happy Retirement card and the other to wish someone a great holiday.
Please check out this and other fun stamps at Dr. Digi’s, and please support our sponsors who generously supply our great prizes!
Winter is here, so it just makes sense to have a winter challenge. I think winter and automatically I think Christmas. I made a simple card using the Mistletoe digi stamp from Doctor Digi House of Stamps. I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir markers, then added glimmer using Wink of Stella clear. I made three cards, two using the same image size but changed the placement, and the third doing a close-up of the mistletoe.

For the next two weeks our challenge at The Glory of Christmas is “Under the Mistletoe”. I found this adorable little “Mistletoe Sprite” at Aurora Wings. The larger “mistletoe” is from Dr. Digi Stamps. I coloured my images with Copics, glossy accents, and Wink of Stella. I wanted to spotlight the Sprite, so I made her a Christmas ornament using the stitched circle stax by MFT. The background was embossed with a snowflake pattern. I added a few gems and my card was done. I included an inside shot of my card to show my sentiment “Merry Kissmas”.
This challenge runs for 13 days, from September 14th until September 27th. I look forward to seeing all your entries at The Glory of Christmas Challenge at http://thegloryofchristmaschallenge.blogspot.ca/
This week at 52 Christmas Throwdown the challenge was “Wine & Mistletoe”, I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I knew I wanted to use the Birdbrain Wine by From the Heart Stamps, and I added Mistletoe from Dr. Digi Stamps. I made the label of the bottle, my sentiment – computer generated. I coloured the images with Copics. I added a snowflake embossed background in a wine coloured card stock. I also added glitter ribbon and gems for a festive feel.
