Simply Create Too – Challenge #129 – Wedding July 7-28, 2017


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.

The Outlawz Challenges

I made two cards for this challenge. Both Skating themes, both totally different.

Card 1: For my first card I used an adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps, called “Winbird Skate”. I coloured him with my Copic markers and layered him on red and black card stock. For some added fun, I used red Stickles for snowflakes and the heart tattoo on his rump. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“. There are 11 fun sentiments and 4 Christmas stamps.

Next I fussy cut them out and put aside. Next using scraps of card stock, I made a snowy background, complete with frozen lake. I arranged my little critters and for the final detail added clear Stickles. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“. There are 11 fun sentiments and 4 Christmas stamps.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Technique – Shaker Card

 CCT - Design For Badge

One of my favorite card techniques is making a shaker card. I don’t make them as often as I should because they require lots of time and I have issues with getting them proper glued together. I purchased a fun village snowglobe thinlite die set by Tim Holtz called Snowglobe. When I started on this project the dies looked simple enough…NOT! There seemed liked a thousand little pieces, and vs cutting them out in various coloured card stock, I decided to cut them all out in white Neenah 80lb card stock and either ink or use my Spectrum Noir markers. This “simple” card took me over three hours to make! But it did turn out very nice. I am sure if I was to do it again, I could shave at least an hour off my time. The sentiment is from MFT, and the Stitched Snowflakes are from SSS. The  sequins are from Taylored Expressions.
