Way up high

Hi everyone. Things seem to be getting slightly warmer which is a bonus.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #629 is Star Stampz. The theme this week is “Christmas”. 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 from the A4 sheet it was printed on. I edged the rectangle with some creative expressions stamps which are a distressed snowflake border using Weathered Wood distress oxide.

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

  • Digital image from Star Stampz printed onto super smooth card
  • Backing paper from my stash with snowflakes
  • Colouring pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Weathered Wood distress oxide ink
  • Card base – 300gsm

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments. Are you making any Christmas cards in March?

CRAFT challenge #606

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge the sponsor for this challenge is Star Stampz.

I’ve coloured little girl (who seems to be dressing herself rather than a tree) with chameleon pens (YO2, BR4, BR1, NU2, NU00, RD4, NG4, GR4, YG3, PK2, RD5, NU1, RD2, BR3, NU4). In the background I’ve used a stencil and “pumice” distress oxide to create snowflakes. I’ve also cut into the large snowflake behind the topper to make it stick out further.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries, so let’s see what you can do and thank you for stopping by.

CRAFT challenge #598

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge our sponsor this week is Star Stampz and the theme is “First Christmas”.

The Christmas sentiment stamp is one from Stamp Addicts.

#508 CRAFT challenge – inspired by a song

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Star Stampz.

My card this week is inspired by the song “monster” by Eminem featuring Rihanna as this stamp is “monster under the bed” and those are the words in this song. It’s a digistamp I’ve used before which I love.

I’ve water-coloured this digital image with some distress oxide inks. The image has a cute friendly playful monster that I feel makes you want to play and smile so I used the stamped sentiment “you make me smile” to echo this.

#487 CRAFT challenge – use something wooden

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Star Stampz.

I chose the digi stamp “monster under the bed” as it appealed to me. It made me remember when the children were younger watching Monsters Inc. my eldest still wants the cupboard door in the corner of the room closed at night! When I chose the stamp I wasn’t sure what wooden item I’d choose to add, but I found a little wooden tag which I’ve coloured a little to tone it in and stamped on it.

I look forward to seeing your cards!
