Merry Moose-mas for TMITA

 At There's Magic in the Air, Gloria  brings us this weeks challenge. She would like to see us use some kind of die cut on our project. For my image, I printed Paper Cupcakes' "Merry Moose-mas" and colored him with copics and sponged around the image after I cut him out with Spellbinders Label 4 die. Also cut a mat in green using same dies. I used a digi sentiment from Raindrop Echo that I cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag die but trimmed off the ends. Assembled the card following the challenge sketch from Critter Sketch Challenge shown below. Used buttons on my card which were part of the CSC.

Entered both challenges mentioned above.

Digi: Paper Cupcakes
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress inks-
         Brushed Corduroy, Tea Dye
Copics
Gold Glitter Pen
Critter Sketch
All Paper  and Buttons from stash  - Red vellum paper was actually saved from a Cadillac Catalog from a few ago. Like to re purpose items. Base card is paper I made with the Marble technique.

The cauldron with bubbling goo, the ghastly green spirit, and the "Poison" word are all from her Cricut cutouts.

Distressed and Soft Tones

This card was made for the sketch challenge For Card Patterns. Used pattern papers from Basic Grey Cappella and a CS from stash for the base. The doily is from a pack I had from Wilton that I distressed with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy and Memento Summer Sky Inks. Also distressed edges of base and mat. I cut out a design with Spellbinders Label 4 from one of the pattern papers and attached beneath the edge of the doily. Sentiment is a digital one from Raindrop Echo Designs that I downloaded from Sentimental Sundays. Finished with a ribbon and bow using the Bow Easy and made from my stash of ribbons.
I like the soft, muted colors of this card.

Challenges:

Say It In Black and White

Say It in Black and White is a challenge at Annabelle Stamps blog. I stamped this lighthouse from Just for Fun Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black on white CS, of course. I cut the image with Spellbinders Labels 4 die and then attached to a textured black mat embossed with CB EF Diamonds. I placed this on a base card of glossy white CS. I made the sentiment using stamps from GKD Fanciful Tags Stamp Set by Nina  and cut it out with Spellbinders Fancy Tags die. Finished with 2 Hero Arts Black Pearls for bling. This would be a good card to enter into a challenge "Make a Card with Something that I Won" since all the items that I used in this card were won by me except for the papers.  Hmmmm, maybe this give someone an idea?
Challenges:
Annabelle Stamps Blog: Say it in black and white
Let's Ink It Up:  Make a scene.
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge:  Use die cuts or punch on your card.

Train Ride from My Dream

 Thursday morning when I woke, I was thinking about a card with a train for a black and white theme.....had I been dreaming about making cards? Any way, I decided I had to make this card but why???
I stamped this train...a stamp form GKD "Life is Good" by Theresa Momber in black on white. I used a sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches to complete the card. Used a sentiment from the same stamp set.
Did some faux stitching around the sentiment ...added a red strip punched with scallop edge and layered on top of a strip of black CS and ribbon. Papers are from GKD. Finished with some stitched buttons. Buttons and ribbon from stash.  Was this the card that I was making in my sleep?  Or was I on a train ride in my dream?

Good for these challenges:
Sweet Sunday Sketches: See sketch on lower right
Sentimental Sunday: Black and white plus one color plus a sentiment
Mark's Finest Papers: Use stitching on your card. Geri's challenge.
Crafty Catz Weekly: Black and White plus one color
One of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of nature is to take a train ride through a scenic area...maybe this is what I was thinking when I used this sentiment with the train.

How Sweet is a Shadow Box?


Inside Card

Yesterday I saw a shadow box card at Selma's Stamping Corner that was just beautiful. I decided that I had to try making one since I had not done one before. Mine is not as elaborate as Selma's but decided to make an easy one for my first try. Thanks for the idea, Selma.
Since Paper Play Challenge has a photo as inspiration for a "Colourful Cupcakes" challenge set by DT Member  Alicia,  I decided to use that as my inspiration for the shadowbox.  I stamped a tiered plate of cupcakes-stamp from Studio G-and colored brightly with Copics and jelli marker. I added sparkle with frosted lace stickles and Sakura glitter pen to the cupcakes. I cut the image with a circle die and attached to center of the inside page. I cut a circle in the middle of the outside paper. I used striped (outside) and pattern (inside) papers with glitter from a scrapbook mat by We R Memory Keepers. I decorated the front with cutout words (letters)  and cupcakes that were part of the scrapbook mat. Attached the 2 pages together which I had already double scored on the sides. 

Challenges:
PaperPlay Challenge: Use photo to the right  as inspiration.
The Pixie Cottage: Theme is to use Something Sweet. What could be Sweeter than a plate of cupcakes?
Cooking it Up with Katie: This week the recipe is: Make Mine a Double (use 2 of something), Add some Letters, Finish with some Glitter
I used a double of double cupcakes, glittered letters, and a heaping of glitter everywhere.
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Use more than one fold-add an extra fold to your card. Used folds on each side of card to create the shadow box.

Oriental Theme Challenge

Found a new challenge on Saturday from Secret Crafter. This week's challenge is set by Tracie who has chosen a theme of ORIENTAL. Any project as long as it is oriental themed.
My card includes a folded paper kimono made of some unidentified paper from my stash. I layered this on a mat that I embossed with a Sizzix texture plate. Attached this to a mat of textured blue Bazzill CS and then to an ivory base card. I edged the mats with a Pilot Gold Marker Pen before I assembled.  The sentiment was stamped with Fiskars Basic Font Clear Stamps using versamark and embossing with Gold EP.  Sash is a gold mesh Ribbon. I learned this folding technique when I did this a similar card for my stamping group.
 Also entering this at Charisma Cardz Challenge: Add an extra fold to your card, maybe an easel style, gatefold, criss cross style, make a gift box, try some origami, etc.
Used origami folding technique to make kimono.

Who! Who! The Googly Eye Owl

 
Halloween is just around the corner and a lot of challenges were to make projects for that holiday this last week. I combine several challenges for this card beginning with the layout from Critter Sketch.
Stamped the owl ( Jessica Lynn Originals), colored with Copics, drew in the tree branch, sponged behind the owl , added some friends--bat and spider rhinestone brads, and placed on black CS mat. Used orange base card, added a mat of glittery purple CS, attached 3 orange strips of Drippy Goo punched with Martha Stewart Punch, and finished with sentiment on tag and glittery metal brads from Recollection.

Challenges:
Critter Sketch: Sketch shown to the right
For Fun Challenge: Use google eyes for a Halloween Project...WHO, WHO better than an owl with google eyes?

One Stop Craft: Halloween is the theme.

Challenge for Joan's Garden

Joan's Garden always has the most interesting challenges and this week is no exception. Her Challenge: Paper-Flower background paper - preferably Webster Pages, Rosette or paper flower, Stamp - Sentiment - preferably JustRite, Border Punch -preferably Martha Stewart. I do  not have any Webster's Pages...must get some....but I think I found a paper in my stash that works. Made a rosette flower...just winged this.
Here's how the card came together-Started with a base card of GKD PL Smokey Slate and layered with a mat of floral paper from Me & My Big Ideas that I bought eons ago and had been saving. I used a Martha Stewart punch Scallop Dot along the lower edge and embossed with CB EF Diamonds. I made the flower from Gold Parchment paper by cutting with a circle die and pleating. Finished with a Basic Grey Brad and attached with scor tape. Stamped the sentiment from "Say it with Flowers" by Melanie from GKD using Memento ink Potter's Clay. My husband thought this card had an Asian feel....said my flower looks like a parasol.

Also to entered this in Perfectly Placed Pleats Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. •Create a project (card, gift bag, tag, layout, home decor item, mini-book cover, etc.) that incorporates pleats in an innovative way.

A Couple Celebrating Life Together


This card just makes me smile when I look at it. Isn't that why we make cards...to make people smile... and my husband smiled all day on our anniversary after he opened this card that I made just for him.
I used a Meljens digital image "Teddy Bear Couple"  that I won from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.  I merged the digi  image onto a photo taken several years ago of a special spot in our yard of a bench where we love to sit together. This was done through the magic of  Photoshop. The photo on the right was made during Halloween.
I then printed the scene and colored the digi with Copics. Completed the card with a sticker and edged with a gold marker which partly covered the sentiment. Oops. Used a gold metallic mat from DCWV and attached to base card. This area in the yard has more mature trees and plants now...just as we are now more mature ( a nicer way to say we getting older).

Just happened to come across a challenge that fits this card...could not resist it.
Challenges to enter:
Digi Doodle Shop: These are my Peeps-use any type of image (Stamp, photo, etc.) of a Person and/or People. It can be someone you know, or not at all.
Teddy Stampers: Fall colors....there are fall colors in trees and background.
There's Magic in the Air: Frame it Out

Double Owls for Halloween

I made this card in 2 slightly different Versions. Can you find the differences?  I used a new stamp that my husband selected when we stopped at a nearby stamp store, Cottage Stampers  in Hartville, OH. I buy more when my DH is along because he sees things that interest him that I might not buy and ...best of all he pays for my purchases. Any way, back to my card. This stamp is from Northwoods and I saw a sample card at the shop that I tried to CASE. I stamped with Versamark on a white glossy CS and embossed with black EP. I then sponged with yellows, reds, and blues til I got the effect that I wanted. I trimmed the image and mounted on purple CS ( may be Bazzill, not sure).  I added 2 ribbons on one and used one ribbon and a stripe of flock on the other. Added a strip of double sided tape and sprinkled on Doodlebug Crush Velvet flock.  Attached to base card of Black CS.

Challenges to enter:
Let's Ink It Up: Use Halloween colors.
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Scary Creatures-use any cute Halloween image or scary.
City Crafter Challenge:  Make a card/project that has something with 'Wings'. I used owl and bats.
The Creative Cottage Challenge: Make something for Halloween
