When I think of winter, I don’t think cold and snow, I think Christmas. For this week’s card, I made two different cards using the Pattieboops Holiday Bear digi stamp by Pattie’s Creations Digital Stamps.
Card 1 – I hand-coloured the Teddy bear using Copic markers, fussy cut him out, and layered on papers from my stash.
Card 2 – I decided to make a patchwork bear using various patterned papers from my stash. I printed the bear a little larger, and on various patterned papers. I hand cut him out with matching backing to make him into a “shaped” card.
I look forward to see everyone’s creations. Please check out these and other wonderful digis stamp by Pattie’s Creations Digital Stamps. Please support our sponsors, who generously provide our wonderful prizes.
This week, we challenge you to make a “Well Done or Congratulations” card. I used Daffodils Circle Scroll by Pattie’s Creations Digital Images. I opted to make a CAS card design. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and added a Congrats sentiment die cut by Penny Black.

For our challenge this week we have a Shades of Blue” colour challenge. I decided to work a little bit with watercolours (both Distress Markers and Derwent Inktense Pencils) I ended up with three variations. I used Dove with Branch & Doves with Bow by Pattie’s Creations Digital Images.
Card 1: I made the digi to fit the full size of my A2 card. I printed the Dove on a light weight watercolour paper. I pulled various Distress Markers from Gray to Dark blue. I coloured them on an acrylic block, added water, and painted the dove using an aquabrush. I finished the card by layering it on blue card stock, and added Peace die cut from PI.
Card 2: is a little more ethereal. I used my Derwent Pencils for this card. I started by lightly painting water (no colour) flowing from behind the dove. Next I touched my aquabrush to the pencil then blended the colours to the paper edges. I also added a little colour to the wings and bird’s body. While I added another Peace die cut from PI, I think this card would work well as a Sympathy card.
Card 3 I “painted” the complete background to resemble sky. Again I used Distress markers. I didn’t watercolour the ribbon bow – that was Distress marker straight on dry watercolour paper. I thought this card would make a great Wedding or Anniversary Card. I used three dies from Spellbinders - Labels Thirty-Four, A2 Tranquil Moments, and Gold Labels Thirty-Four. I added a blue ribbon to mimic the one the birds are holding.
The challenge runs from January 1st until January 7th, 2015. Hope you will join us
