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 we have a sketch challenge. Our sponsor for this challenge is DRS Designs. They have the coolest set of stained glass stamps that allow you to convert your regular stamps into “faux” stained glass panels. For my card I am using Large Stained Glass – 1133P, but they also have an arched, oval, and small rectangle versions. For the flower pattern, I used Delicious Doodles – Apple Blossom. For my other examples, I used three different flower digis from A Day of Daisies. Vs me trying to tell you how do use this stamp, I will refer you to a YouTube Video by the Frugal Crafter – Lindsay Weirich - Stained Glass Look With Any Stamp. To color my images I used Derwent Watercolour Pencils on Neenah Solar White 80lb paper.
Please join us for this fun challenge, and check out the wonderful stamps at DSR Designs
This week’s challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I used an adorable stamp by DRS Designs called Jenny Giraffe – 859G. I hand coloured the image with Copic markers, fussy cut it out and layered on pastel papers from my stash. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and Rolled Rose by MFT.
This challenge runs from November 5th until November 11th. Please join us. Also please support our great sponsors that provide us with our great prizes.
I was getting low on my baby cards, so I coloured up some “baby” designs in blue, pink, yellow, green, and lilac. I started by pulling some blue card stocks and made three baby boy cards. I handcoloured the baby images with Copics.
