Sleepy bear

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #642 is ADU. The theme this week is “Christmas”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose to do a simple card, but actually feel that it’s gorgeous as it is without the need for dressing it up with any embellishments! I simply used some coloured pencils for the scarf the sled and his ear, and an HB pencil and paper stub to give shade. I then matted this onto red and a pattered background paper on a white card.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image
  • Colouring pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Card base – 300gsm
  • HB pencil
  • Paper blending stub
  • Backing papers
  • Paper trimmer

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.

Shoes….

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #630 is All Dressed Up. The theme this week is “Female”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

For this one coloured the image with pencils, and cut the image out to layer onto a background. I inked the background and layered this under a die cut in black. I think it’s quite striking, but allows the topper to still stand out.

  • Backing paper from my stash inked with distress oxide inks
  • Colouring pencils
  • High tack glue

  • Card base – 300gsm

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.

Winter vibes

We are now into February, where has the last month gone?

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #625 is ,All Dressed Up (ADU) and the theme is Winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • White 6×6” 300gsm base card
  • Pink heavyweight paper
  • Digital image
  • Chameleon pens
  • Die cut snowflakes
  • Snowflake aperture die
  • Text background stamp
  • Distress oxide ink
  • Gems

For this card I stamped the text background stamp onto the base card. I also cut a piece of pink paper to mat onto the base card, and out of this I cut a snowflake aperture. Once I had coloured the digital image with Chameleon pens I cut the deer out. I’ve also distressed the pink paper with text and distress oxide ink to give more of a focus to that panel.

Sparkly penguins!

Christmas isn’t far away now, and I know some of you will be thinking enough already, but actually I feel that after everything everyone has been through it will be nice if we can have a normal Christmas this year.

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #617 is ADU and the theme is Christmas. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

This is more of a contemporary Christmas card with the bright coloured hats and scarves and the dotty base card. I coloured this image with some coloured pencils this time as not everyone has fancy pens or watercolours so now and again it’s nice to show different colouring mediums.

The snow effect was achieved with some fake snow and also some glitter glue so there is some texture as well as sparkle.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • Grey and white polka dot 300gsm A4 sheet folded to make a base card and cut to size
  • All Dressed Up (ADU) penguins digital image
  • Colouring pencils
  • Iridescent glitter glue
  • Fake snow
  • Tacky glue
  • Black card as a mat, slightly larger than the focal image
  • Christmas Wishes sentiment

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.
