Scrapy Land - Challenge 127

Hello crafty friends,

Can you believe it's December... I'm not ready for the Holidays, but I am ready for the start of a new challenge.  The start of a new challenge is always fun. 




The card i created for this challenge is full of shine, but it's so hard to capture it in pictures.


I inked blended the background with several different brands/shades of red ink.  I used a circle die cut initially to masks were the angels would be, to keep those areas lighter in order to create halos or glows behind them.  Tip:  don't keep the mask in place during all of your blending in order to get a soft undefined area instead of a bold masked shape.

Once inked, I sprayed Glimmer Mist onto my inked panel and attached the panel onto my card base (4in x 8in). The top and bottom angels were taped flat, the middle angel i pop up with foam tape.

The angels are from Memory Box and they are sold separately.  Gilded Angel Background and Gilded Angel dies.  For my card, I die cut the background from silver glitter card stock and the lacy overlay die from velum for a soft look, but i found it too subtle, so I think white would have been a better choice.



Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 126

Hello crafty friends,



I have two cards using the Brooklyn Alphabet dies by Frantic Stamper.  I love how tall and thin the letters in this alphabet die are. 




I needed two quick Fall cards, so I kept my design simple and I used pattern paper on both my cards, which measure 8in x4in.  If I were to make these cards again, I would make them as 4.25in.x 5.5in, because as much as i love the letter dies, I fee they are too thin to carry these wider cards.   

The letters were die cut from pattern paper backed with double sided score tape and from thin white foam also packed by double sided score tape.  The cute critter on the second card that I used instead of an "A" in the Adorable Skunk by Frantic Stamper, but I colored (distress inks) him as a squirrel.  I can see from the photo, that I forgot to give him eyes, which were going to be dots of brown nuvo drops.


Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 125

Welcome crafty friends,


I recently picked up the Sizzix Winter Tree stamp and die set, because you can never have too many tree dies.  If you think about it, tree dies can be used year-round, for all card themes.  I created a Winter and a Fall card w/the same stamp and die set, just by changing the colors and the background pattern papers.


On my Winter card above, I stamped and die cut using greens.  On the Fall card below, I used reds.



Here are some die sets that would work well for this technique
Memory Box Cosenza Tree Border Background
Impression Obsession Fir Trees
Little B Trees

Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 124

Hello crafty friends,



I have two cards using the same design, just different orientations.


I used the Spiders from Cheery Lynn's Whimsical Spider set, which are sadly not currently available, but these Spiders from Impression Obsession would work just as well.  My card front is a simple ink blended panel w/black paint splashes die cut from the second largest die in the Elizabeth Craft Designs Fitted Rectangle set.

Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 123

Welcome crafty friends,


I'm in full Halloween mode, so my card for challenge #123 is a Halloween theme one.


I used the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider die set to create the main element of my card front.


As you can see, when you pulled the slider piece up, the magic colored image reveals itself.


This is just one of the may ways you can use this die set, which comes with three front shape dies (heart, oval, and the rectangle i used).  The set also comes with a cute sprity hello and banner dies.

If you are looking for a speech bubble die set, then you have to check out this Lawn Fawn one.  It's on my wishlist, so leave one for me :)

Here's a picture of all the components that make the slider on my desk last night.  From top left to right... the main die that cuts the slider base.  The U shaped piece that when added to the inside of the slider base will create the "track" for the slider.   The actual sliding piece w/the tab.  The rectangle  double side stitched die that creates the opening.


If you are looking for an assembly video, here's the one I watched to get a feel on how all the pieces fit together.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2uoKgA2aYM


Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 122

Welcome crafty friends,


Challenge #122 starts today, so join us for a chance to win.


I used the Poppy Stamps Feathertree Frame die as my main element on my card.  I backed the die with velum (colored blue with a Copic marker) and a graphic cloud pattern paper.   The color within the tree's branches come from Nuvo drops... yes, I used Nuvo drops inside the wells from a few of the branches.

The Feathertree frame die is not currently available, but I think two of  the IO's Christmas Tree Cutouts dies would look great with Nuvo drops inside the little circles/triangles. 


Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  One winner... selected randomly will receive a $15 gift code to Scrapy Land.  Top three and honorable mentions will be selected by the Designers.  Until next time... take care.

Scrapy Land - Challenge 121

Welcome crafty friends,


Here's my card for challenge #121:


I used the Mini Picture Frames by Lawn Fawn and the Cats dies by Impression Obsession to create a wall of framed "photos" of my cats... Rusty (Orange Tabby), Bear (mini Panther), Storm (our crazy baby).

LOL, you just never know when your next idea will come from... I got my inspiration for this card from a set of hand towels I recently purchased.
