CWWC - Sew Special Card

Hi Friends:  There is a new challenge today over at the Crafting When We Can Challenges Blog, where the current theme is based on this Mood Board - you can use the colors, sewing theme, or both:


Please visit our fabulous sponsor this week, Lemon Shortbread, to see all of their wonderful products!

My creation for this week is a card using the darling image called Babydoll Dress Girl.  I got as close to the color scheme as I could, and incorporated machine stitching, buttons, and a scissors charm to go with the sewing theme.



I hope that you are inspired by my creation and will join us over at the CWWC blog to see the creations of the other design team members and enter for your chance to win a great prize from our sponsor.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great CRAFTY day!

Instructions:
Print image onto smooth white cardstock and color with Spectrum Noir markers.  Use stitched oval die to cut out the image, along with a background oval panel from the patterned paper pack.  Cut background paper to fit A2 card base, machine stitch along the edges, ink edges, and attach to the card base. Wrap baker's twine around a 1/2 inch strip of coordinating paper and attach to the center of the card.  Ink edges of oval panel and use craft foam to mount it to the card center.  Color clear buttons with the Spectrum Noir markers to match the colors in the image, add baker's twine, and attach to the corners.  Make a baker's twine bow to attach the charm to the existing twine along the center of the card.  To finish, stamp sentiment with black ink and attach to the top of the card.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi Friends:  Here's a Brentwood Valentine's Day hug to all of you!  This card uses the Brentwood Owl Whole Lotta Love digital stamp from JessicaLynnOriginal.com.   (Yes, the card is a bit plain and simple - it was donated to Cards from the Heart card drive for children and there were many restrictions on what could be used.)  Have a Happy Valentine's Day!



The image was printed onto plain white cardstock and colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  The background paper is We R Memory Keepers Be My Valentine paper, layered onto an A2 card base.  I used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges of the papers, to add a bit of dimension.

CWWC - Flip It One of a Kind Card

Hi Friends:  There is a new challenge today over at the Crafting When We Can Challenges Blog, where the current theme is Flowers.  I am using flowers in 2 ways:  my digital image that has flowers and I added paper flowers on the bottom of the card.

Please visit our fabulous sponsor this week, Sweet Escape Digis, to see all of their wonderful products!

My creation for this week is a flip card using the lovely Ornaments Flowers on Hair digital image.



Here's a look at the inside of the flip card:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great CRAFTY day!

Process:
I printed the digital image onto smooth white cardstock and colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers, using colors that matched the papers I chose.  I used the Majestics Flip-Its die to create my card base, then used a circles embossing folder and embossing paste colored with Distress Inks on the paper to enhance the texture. I added some sparkly embossing powder and heat set it to add some glimmer to the embossed areas.  I used the coordinating Majestic Framelits dies to cut the image, frame, and sentiment labels, then used brown chalk ink to edge all of the papers. After I adhered the background papers and labels, I added and colored the earring and necklace gems using the same SN markers, then used the clear SN Glitter brush pen on the flowers in her hair. I stamped my sentiment on the smallest die-cut paper and added it to the inside flip of the card.  To finish, I added some paper flowers accented with LSG sprays, some gems around the frame, and some pearl string beads around the flowers.  I love these Flip-It cards - they are so much fun!
