Dream Valley Challenge #229 – Christmas in July

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is Crafty Ribbons.

For this card I’ve used stamps from Stamp Addicts – the bird and one of their wavy sentiments. I stamped the bird onto some tan coloured card, then watercolored and added some red and brown distress inks to colour him like a robin since this is a Christmas challenge. The background paper is one from Dovecraft.

Gorjuss 18th

This is a card for a girl at work who is turning 18 this month. I’m hoping she likes it!

I chose a Gorjuss girl with her handbag as the recipient of this card always dresses well and likes her handbags and it’s an appropriate image for someone coming if age.

I used a side stepped card in kraft card for this project and inked the background, the stamped images, the die cuts and coloured the image with the same inks. I used a Dovecraft stamp for the happy birthday. A combination of Kaisercraft “perfume” and Tim Holtz stamps for the background. Then Papermania stamps and dies for the 18TH.
