Scrapy Land - Challenge 114

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge 114...



I created two two cards using the Sizzix Cutout Blossom die set by Tim Holtz for this challenge.  You can get the same feel with any cutout or reverse cut die... here are some options:  Frantic Stamper Rose Cutout Border, IO Snowflakes Cutout, FS Reverse Cut Rose


for the top panel of my first card, I started with a wide card stock piece.   I die cut the flowers and kept them in their slots while I inked around them and later splashed w/water.


by keeping the dies in the die cuts I was able to get a perfect white halo around my die cuts.


I added foam tape to my top panel and attached it to my card base over hot pink glitter card stock.  As a finishing touch, i drew stems on my flowers.

On my second card, I die cut one of the flowers in the center of two pattern papers.  I also die cut the same flower from red glitter card stock and fussy cut around the die cut giving myself a small border.  I glued the fussy cut flower over the die cut one.  As a finished touch, i added a thin red glitter card stock "seam" where the two pattern papers met and some glitter sequins. 


I forgot to mention, this time I created a shaker card.

Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  The winners... one selected randomly and one selected by the Design Team will both receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 113

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge #113...


I have a box card to show off today.   There are several good box card dies in the market.  I used a Spellbinders one that's not currently available, but these other two are (Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card and Pink & Main Box Card)


I also used the Frantic Stamper Contemporary Floral Border and Frantic Stamper Stitched Grassy Hill Edgers.   The floral border I cut into sections for my card flaps.  The grass die I placed in the middle sections.   If you need balloon dies, I have this Poppystamps one on my wishlist.

Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  The winners... one selected randomly and one selected by the Design Team will both receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 112

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge 112, craft friends...


Created a simple but not fast Easter card for this challenge using the Tutti Design Tulip Egg die.


I die cut the tulip egg into a per-cut rectangle card panel several times.  I used double sided tape to make attaching all the die cuts onto the watercolor pattern paper easier.  wanting to keep the card simple/clean, i just added Nuvo drops as a finishing touch.

Impression Obsession Challenge - Birthday Wishes

Hello crafty friends,

Birthday Wishes is the theme for the current Impression Obsession Challenge.


 

I created this card for the challenge using the Verbena Blossom, which I stamped several time using masks in order to create a full floral background.   I left a section of my floral panel white, so I could placed my die cut Happy Birthday (from the Greetings Bottom Edgers die set) on it.   I actually die cut the Happy Birthday twice (black card stock and Purple card stock) and stacked them a tiny bit off.   I colored my flowers with watercolor pencils.

Thanks for stopping bye.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 111

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge 111, craft friends...



I created two Easter cards using the Impression Obsession Bunny die set for this challenge.


As you can see the cards are somewhat the same, but different. 


On this card I die cut the bunnies from yellow watercolor pattern paper and one of the Sizzix Garden Greens leaves from green watercolor pattern paper.  I arranged them onto a card panel with a light pink egg stenciled background.   A stamped Happy Easter and pink Nuvo drops finished this card.


This card was a lot quicker to make.  I die cut a panel of pattern paper with the one of the Stitched Rectangle dies by Elizabeth Craft  and next die cut my bunnies from the panel.  I mounted the panel onto a black card base.  A stamped Happy Easter and lime green Nuvo drops finished this card.

Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  The winners... one selected randomly and one selected by the Design Team will both receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Until next time... take care.

Impression Obsession Challenge - Happy Easter

Hello crafty friends,

I'm submitting this card to the Impression Obsession Challenge running until April 2nd.   The theme is Happy Easter.     



This card kind of evolved on it's own.  I started with the stamped egg carrots and added the bunnies around them.  When I was done it looked like a section of an Easter mandala.   

Thanks for stopping bye.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 110

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge 110, craft friends...


Here's the card I made for this challenge using several dies... 



I started this card by die cutting the Rose Cutout Border from a 8x8 sheet of ombre pattern paper and also from black card stock.   I did the same with the Exotic Butterfly die making sure the position of the butterfly and the ombre pattern matched in tone to the Rose Cutout Border section, which it would be mounted onto.  


As a last touch, I added the "hello" word die from a Spellbinders set.  I was going to add a "spring" word die at the bottom of the card, but I couldn't find one... which gives me an excuse to go shopping LOL. 

Exotic Butterfly die is not currently available, but there are several other butterflies available.  I personally love that this one comes with a shadow die.  

Hello die is not currently available, but there are several others here
