This week the CRAFT Design Team challenges you to make a card for Summer! I started my quest looking for a summer paper and found a perfect one in my Couture Creations – Sea Breeze 6 x 6 paper pack. Next, I stamped an Impression Obsession image called Blue Booby. I think he and the sentiment (from the same set) were perfect. I coloured him with Copics. I fussy cut him out and inked the edge of the cardstock with a black marker.

It is the end of March and “hopefully” Sring is in the air! The CRAFT design team challenges you to make a Spring or Easter card. I think of Spring and I automatically think of flowers. For this challenge, I used a beautiful digi by Eureka Stamps called, “Abstract Flower Digital Stamp”. I printed the images using my laserjet printer and Cannonwatercolour paper.I coloured it with watercolour paints - Finetec MICA WATERCOLOR PEARLESCENT Paint 6, ig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, and Prima watercolour crayons. The Hello die is from Impression Obsessions.

The first challenge of 2018 is to Upcycle or Use Anything Old!
I did a Crafty Christmas Card Challenge with some card makers from Live, Love, Cards Card Exchange Group. I received a beautifully made card from Carole Thomas from Alberta, Canada and it was too pretty just to throw away so I decided I would recycle it. I am showing her original card first, then my upcycled version.
To make my card, using a circle die, I die cut out the medallion from the center of the card. I also used IO – Pine Branch Die to cut out 2 different coloured card stock and doubled them up for some dimension to my branch. I used an Ornament die so I so I could turn the medallion into a Christmas Ornament hanging from a branch. The sentiment is from Papertry Ink. The final touch was to add a few gems.

For this week’s challenge, I decided to try out a couple of dies I have. I started by embossing the background with one of my stash folders. Next I die cut a trellis (by Impression Obsessions) out in black and a garden trellis (by Poppy Stamps)out in white. I liked the different effects of each so I decided on making 2 cards vs one. Next I made 4 purple cone-flowers/stem and leaves made with Elizabeth Craft designs. The sentiment is by Penny Black. I added ribbon and pre-made kraft butterflies from my stash

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.
