Tropical Santa

Today's challenge features a photo inspiration and a new Freebie Friday image, be sure to get yours here.  


I cut out my sand and water in white card stock and used my distress inks to color the pieces.  The palm tree is a Design Space image (#M39E6F) from Sesame Street Seasons.  I cut the shadow layer from white card stock and used distress inks to ink it the colors needed.  I cut a second layer of the palm leaves at a smaller size and glued only the center so they would add dimension.

I created a cloud stencil by welding a several circles in various sizes together, just like all the stencils scene on the web.  I chose Warm Winter Wishes as my sentiment, since Santa is sitting on the beach.  This will be a great card to send my friends in Florida.

Other Supplies:
CTMH #D1562 Frosted WOTG Stamp Set (retired)

Elf Days of Christmas


Today's challenge is a Bingo Challenge, I chose the bottom left corner to top right corner: Bling, Bugaboo image and sparkle.


I have featured two images on my card,  the little guy peeking out from behind the M is Elf Peeker and the cute little guy sitting on top is Elf004.

For my sparkle I cut out the word Merry from red glitter card stock.  The font I used was Impact, which is free from Dafont.com.  I did manipulate the size a little, so it is a little taller than the original font.

I used my LF Quilted Backdrop, then I added little red dots with my Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry.  The card base is green, so all the little cut outs look like holly leaves.

I added a strip of green glitter washi tape and my Christmas sentiment with a few sequins.  

Other Supplies:
Sunny Studios - Holiday Style stamp set
MFT Dienamics A2 Stitched Rectangles Stax

Challenges:
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #170 - Christmas in July

Winter Shadow Box Card

Today Bugaboo Stamps is kicking off a week of fun and prizes.  Be sure to check it out at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog. Today's challenge is a theme, "Baby, It's Cold Outside."


Saturday, July 21 - Friday, July 27
I am featuring Winter Penguin Skiing and Snowball Penguins.  I fussy cut the second one apart into 3 separate images.


I started by creating a shadow box card in Sure Cuts A Lot 4.  It measures 4"H x2 3/4"Wx2 1/8"D.  The depth  and width will fold down to about 5", so it fits in a 4.25x5.5" envelope.

I used my stitched hillside dies to cut different heights of snow covered hills in white card stock, that has a layer of Wink of Stella and then a little Stickles.  This gives it the glisten of snow on a beautiful sunny day.

My sentiment was written and curved in Design Space, which I flattened for Print Then Cut.  I printed it out on kraft card stock, then used the Hinge Method to cut it out.

Frame It With Flowers

Today's card features an Oldie but Goodie, Floral Doodles 02 at Bugaboo Stamps.


I printed the image on regular paper first to be sure it was the correct size for my card.  Then I printed it on a light pink card stock using my laser printer.

I applied a copper foil with my Minc, then applied Nuvo Glitter Drops in Midnight Sky on all the little dots and a few extra.

The sentiment was stamped with Delicate Metallic Ink in Celestial Copper.  I waited quite awhile, but as you can see, not long enough.  I smudged it when I added more of the sentiment.

Other Supplies Used:
CTMH Exclusive Ink Pad - Outdoor Denim

Challenges:

Join Catch the Bug this Saturday for the Christmas in July event, there will be loads of fun and prizes.

Housewarming Gift

Today's project features  AKV House by Bugaboo Stamps.



I thought a great housewarming gift is a nice bottle of wine.  Especially after all the moving. I personally don't drink wine, so please excuse the bottle I used, it is actually my cooking sherry.

I use a stylus to add the drops in small amounts, then with the very skinny tip, I drag it out to fill the area.  I think this gives the image a little more dimension and adds a lot of interest.

I printed my sentiment with my laser printer and foiled it with a Lime green foil. The inside of the card says, Can I get a woof-woof!  I saw a card at Walmart that inspired this card.

Other Supplies Used:

MFT Die-namics Stitched Basic Edges

Nuvo Crystal Drops - various colors

Wish Big

Hello, today's card features Clyde Birthday by Bugaboo Stamps.



I used Distress Inks in Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed on a piece of card stock before cutting the word "BIG".  I  cut it with my Cricut Explore using the Impact font. 

The background layer was created by splattering several colors all over.  The "wish" sentiment was created with an alphabet stamp set I have.  I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with WOW white embossing powder.  Then cut it out using my rectangle dies.

Supplies Used:
Distress Inks - Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Mustard Seed

Challenges:
Seize the Birthday
Simon Says Anything Goes
