SUNNY DAY CRAFTING CHALLENGE #26 ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

 Hi There,
There is a new challenge starting today at
SUNNY DAY CRAFTING
The theme is...
ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here is what I used to make my card....
Digital stamp by Flowers, Feathers and Fairies
Digi image colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
with Copic Ciao for skin.
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Against The Grain'
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Feathers Etched Dies
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collection Paper String Solids
Unbranded Nesting Frame Rectangle Die Set
White/blue/brown cardstock paper from my stash.

Using white paper, I made the card. Then I cut to fit the patterned
paper and glued it in the center of the card. Using a frame die, I
ran the digi image through the machine. After cutting blue paper to
frame behind the digi image, I used the next size up frame die and
ran it through the machine. Then I glued the framed image onto the
blue paper frame and glued that onto the center of the card. Using
two die cut feathers, I glued them together and added them at an
angle to the left side of the image. Then using paper string, I made
a bow and glued it onto the feather's stems.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafting,

LETS CRAFT & CREATE CHALLENGE #120 Christmas/New Year

Hello Dear Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
LET'S CRAFT AND CREATE
The theme for this challenge is...
Christmas/New Year
There is a lovely prize to be won too, so come join in the fun!

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here is what I used to make my card...
Digital stamp by Mo's Digital Pencil
Digi image colored with Spectrum Noir Markers,
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils and a white Glaze Gelly Roll Pen.
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Mirabelle'
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits Dies 'Woodlands'
Zots Glue Dots and Beacon Gem-Tac Glue
Red/white ribbon and pearls are from my dear friend Mary.
Unbranded Snowflake die
White/red/green cardstock paper, beads, lace tape and flowers 
from my stash.

Using white paper, I made the card. I glued the green patterned paper in 
the center, then added the striped patterned paper in the center of that. I 
added a strip of red patterned paper on the bottom center. After cutting 
the red and the green patterned paper to frame behind the image, I glued 
the red paper to the back of the image, then glued the snowflake in place 
onto the green paper. Then glued all of them together and added the 
image at a slant onto the side of the card. I then glued the ribbon across 
the bottom of the card, tucking the ends under the green paper. Then 
added the lace tape over the red paper and slightly over the ribbon, then 
tucked in the ends under the green paper. Next I added small pieces of 
a glue dot behind the tree and added it to the side of the card, with the 
trunk behind the ribbon. Then glued the three pearls onto the tree. I 
applied glue to every other bead and added them to the card, over the 
lace and ribbon. After adding a glue dot to the back of each flower I 
placed them below the image and slightly over the beads.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafting,

Hi There,
There is a new challenge starting today at
SUNNY DAY CRAFTING

ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here is what I used to make my card...
Digital stamp by Imagine That Digistamp
Colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils.
Zots Glue Dots
Darice Embossing Essentials Vine Die
Butterfly Die
White/yellow/red cardstock paper and flatback pearl from my stash.

With white paper I made the card. The I glued yellow paper in the center 
of the card, then glued the red paper in the center of the yellow paper. 
Next I glued the vine die cut onto the right side of the card. After fussy 
cutting around the digi image I glued it onto the right side of the card, with 
part of it underneath the vine and part over the vine. After cutting around 
the text, I glued yellow paper to frame behind it. Then glued it slanted 
onto the left side of the card. After gluing a flatback pearl to the butterfly, 
I added a small piece of a zot glue dot to the back and placed it on the 
left side of the card, over the vine.

And that's my DT card.
