C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 417 – 25th of May – Fathers’ Day/Male

DTbadgeWe tend to make more female cards than male cards. With Father’s Day coming we are challenging you to make either a Father’s Day card, or a card more suitable for a guy. For this challenge I used an adorable stamp by Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps called, Summer Holidays.” I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out and put him aside. Next using a retired map background stamp by JustRite I stamped a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white and kraft card stock. I coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks. I made one card suitable for a Happy Retirement card and the other to wish someone a great holiday.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 416 – 18th of May – Christmas

DTbadgeWe are half way through May and all the gardens are running late. While we had a mild winter it was really long! So creating a Christmas card now seems very appropriate! For this week’s challenge, I selected an adorable puppy stamp by Pink Gem Designs called, “Christmas Charlie.” I coloured the puppy using Spectrum Noir markers. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to his hat and scarf, glossy accents to his eyes and nose, and Stickles to his hat’s pom-pom. For the background, I used Tim Holtz’s Sweater embossing folder by Sizzix because the “knit” patterns of the scarf/hat matched.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 412 – 20th of April – Christmas

DTbadgeWe challenge you to make another Christmas card for youe 2017 stash! For this challenge I used another great image from Eureka Stamps - Dog Pile Digital Stamp ES-digi17703. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers. I made two cards using the same image just to show that placement of the image can change to look of the card. I used papers from my stash. The sentiment is from SSS.

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.

For this week’s challenge you are to make a card using White and one other colour. I used Black, White, and a light shade of Blue for one card, and Black, White and Red for the other. This week’s sponsor is Eureka Stamps, and they have a diverse line of unmounted and cling mounted images, encompassing over 30 theme areas… from “accents” to “winter” and over 1500 images in between along with over 1000 of these images available in digital (digi) format. I made 4 cards using 2 of their fabulous stamps, Crying Lamb ES-digi13802 and Party Poopers ES-digi14303. For the touch of colour on the images I used my Spectrum Noir Markers.
