C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 475 – 5th of July – Inspiration Picture

This week’s challenge at CRAFT is based on an inspirational picture of a summer harbour. We are looking for your take on this subject. Whether you show us water, summer fun, boats, etc, I decided to take the challenge quite literally. I just got back from a fabulous vacation in  Newfoundland, Canada. “The Rock” they call the province, is a real hidden gem. The harbour in my photo is from an area/town called Bonavista. It is a picture perfect little community full of wonderful people. I made this card to send to a special little girl I met there. The duck is a fun little Bugaboo digital stamp I coloured with my Copic markers, and the Hello die cut is from MFT.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 139 – For a Male

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month’s challenge falls into Father’s Day. While you do not need to create a Father’s Day card, it must for suitable for a male. I created an adorable little workbench fold out card that will fit easily into an A2 envelope. I got my inspiration from 2 talented ladies on YouTube (links are at the bottom of my blog). I started with cutting out the pattern in black cardstock. I have numerous suitable dies cuts of tools, papers, stamps, embossing folders, etc. Next, I die the pegboard for the back wall of the bench, embossed Aluminium tape for the side walls, cut to fit SSS pre-embossed woodgrain craft paper for the front of the counter, then added the various tools and signs.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge – Lace

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, our challenge is to use lace on our Christmas Card. Well, I have been hearing a lot about these new “Bow” cards and decided to check them out. Wow! they are simply gorgeous. Just Google bow cards for YouTube videos and numerous beautiful examples. I purchased the template from sandrasscrapshop.blogspot.nl *. I also received written permission from Sandra to make and display my card on the 52CCT website. She sent me the bow card template as a PDF file that allows you to use scissors and a SVG file that you can use the various cutting machines. I used my Cricut. *Please note: there are numerous fabulous projects available to purchase at Sandra’s Scrap Shop. I used various Christmas papers, lace, gems, snowflake buttons from my stash to create my Christmas bow card. I used a heavy cardstock to make the actual card attached to the back of the bow, but I think I will also attach a small loop so the person receiving the card can also hang it as a decoration. I hope you like my first attempt. I will be making more!
