I spent the afternoon making cards for fun and challenges. A delightful way to spend a holiday afternoon after a morning watching Peanut playing in a fountain.
This card is made using Create with TLC's "Fish Out of Water" mini kit - I love the cute fish and the great plaid paper. I colored the fish with colored pencils and finished it with glitter glue. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the fish is raised off the card for a 3D effect.
I think this is my fourth post for the day as I get caught up on challenges this weekend : ) This card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge Summer Delights. I used the Short Shorts stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps that I used for the Stampin with the Dragon challenge (below), but I put her outside in a park rather than by the beach.
I really loved the beautiful fairy image that Glitterbabe shared on the I Did It Creations challenge blog. The challenge this week was using your favorite embellishment. I'm new to making cards, so my favorite embellishment is things that are easy. I found these cute stick-on gems in the dollar bin at Michael's today - it doesn't get much easier than that. I colored the image with my new 50 pack of colored pencils.
The challenge this month at RakScraps was Romantic Moms. I loved the colors. I've been working on my own drawings and came up with these two women - a 1920s flapper and a 1960s mod inspired by Funky Things to Draw. So, I changed the theme a little bit to celebrate women.
The two women, the evening gown, and the hand drawn rose will be available as free digistamps over the next few days. Follow my blog to make sure you get all the freebies!
This is the first card that I've made with mixed media - digistamps with paper, ribbons, and flowers. My dad's birthday is coming up this summer and I was inspired by several challenges this week to put this together. The inside says "Happy Birthday, Grandpa!"
I've entered this card in the following challenges:
This week the challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Furry Friends. My sister is celebrating her birthday this weekend and so I used the challenge to make her a birthday card.
This is my first time working on a hybrid card project, so I printed out a few versions to color. The first one is the card for my sister. The second one is Peanut's card for her aunty. The other two are different versions.
The inside reads: "Hope your birthday is doggone good!"
Hello all! I've created this birthday card for the C.R.A.F.T. challenge blog. The papers and elements are from my Denim and Daisies kit (available free on this blog) and the digistamp is a new one I created. You can dowload the stamp (colored and outline version) here.
Hello all! I have created my first digistamp. I'm working on a new kit - Stratford - and I needed a bunny. Since I liked it, I thought you might like it as well. The digistamp download includes the bunny outline (not the colored image) in two formats (png and jpg). If you want the colored image, stay tuned for my next kit!
If you use the image, I'd love to see it (just post the link in the comments). If you like what you see here, please consider following this blog, so you get all the freebies as soon as they're available.
I had a lot of fun with the Going Dotty Challenge on One Stitch at a Time. I love this little puppy stamp from Stitchy Stamps. I had a lot of fun coloring it using Photoshop Elements. I thought this would be a fun card for a friend with nice bright colors.
It's a new week and time for a new challenge at Scrap It With a Song. I chose a line out of the song "Need that picture of you" that reminded me of a photo of my daughter from a few weeks ago. Her dad kept telling me how cute it was when she put her head through the wooden frame to hold up a tree. I have to agree and now we've captured it on [digital] film.
I made my entry in time this time! Challenge #11 is Children. I've used the "Jiggy" stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs. I'm going to use this as a birthday card for my nephew. The paper is from my Pat-a-cake Kit and the Happy Birthday I wrote myself using Photoshop Elements.
I created two digicards using my Sunshine MiniKit. The first uses elements and papers from the kit as well as a digistamp from Stitchy Bear. This would have been my entry for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge #10 Flowers, if I'd made it in time...
The second card uses only elements from the kit and you can download it here. It should be sized to print on Avery Cards, if you wish.
I found that I had a lot of yellow flower pictures, and we were enjoying such lovely weather last week that I was inspired to do a Sunshine Kit. I hope you like it! If you download, please leave a comment. Thanks! Jennifer
