World Wide Design Team Open Challenge

Hi my crafty peeps, I hope everyone had a healthy and happy New Year. It's time for another challenge over at World Wide Open Challenge Design Team blog. Why not hop on over and enjoy the fun?
Here is my latest bit of inspiration...
I love this image of the bride, simply & elegant. Because of that, that's the way I colored her, using Copic markers with simple & neutral colors. I used a few dies from Spellbinders to help frame her, then fussy cut her out & adhered her to the card.

Moving Along with the Times Challenge

Hi to all my crafty peeps, Time to ring in the new year with the first challenge of 2019.... Moving Along with the Times. This time the inspiration is Music.
Below is my project...
I was going through some old photos to scrapbook and this one fit right in with this week's challenge.
Hard to believe I was that young once, and since it's coming up on my 50th birthday, it seemed like a good time to scrapbook this memory.
For added dimension, I ran the large letters through a music embossing folder that I had. The paper is from my stash, and I fussy cut the violin out of another identical piece of paper, so that I could pop dot it up.

Moving Along with the Times Challenge

Hi to all my crafty peeps, Hard to believe that Moving Along with the Times has another challenge happening. Where does the time go? This time the inspiration is Anything But a Card.
Below is my project...
For those of you who know me, I love doing Artist Trading Cards. Once I was introduced to this miniature world of artworks, I was hooked. Plus I found a fabulous way to use up all those bits & baubles that I have left over from my larger paper crafting projects!
This latest ATC is still Christmas themed, but I covered a piece of a puzzle and stamped Santa's face on it.
Then I used left over paper and ephemera from my Christmas cards, to help make this tiny bit of Christmas cheer!!

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge

Hi my crafty peeps, Hard to believe that a month has gone by already and that it's time for another challenge over at World Wide Open Challenge Design Team blog. Why not hop on over and enjoy the fun?
Here is my latest bit of inspiration...
Since we now have a rabbit as one of our fur babies, this stamp seemed appropriate.
I colored her in with Copic markers. I wanted to due more modern Christmas colors, so I had paper that had blue and pinks, and colored her accordingly. The small snowflakes are stickers and I used matching cardstock and a border punch to create the lace looking paper.

Moving Along with the Times Challenge

Hi to all my crafty peeps, Hard to believe that Moving Along with the Times has another challenge happening. Where does the time go? This time the inspiration is Cat or Cats.
Below is my project...
I've been doing more scrapbooking lately and came across these pics of our fur baby, Tabitha. She is our senior citizen now, so I wanted to do a page of her in her younger days.
The brown swirls are rub-ons and I placed the jewels with the help of a circle template. The paper is so old, it came from my stash.

Here is my latest bit of inspiration...
Considering how much I enjoy the Steampunk style, this stamp was right up my alley.
I colored her in with Copic markers. The gears are wood, and I colored them black my with Copics also.
The purple paper came that way, and it was a piece of scrap I had in my stash.

Moving Along with The Times Challenge

Hi to all my crafty peeps, Moving Along with the Times has another challenge happening, this time the inspiration is Halloween.
Below is my card...
The purple paper is actually fabric. It seems to have been starched for a more firm texture and it cut beautifully.

The bat is a punch that I covered with Glossy Accents by Ranger. It gave the punch more character, deepened the black cardstock and added a cool shine..

Another touch is the silver metallic strip. This is actually Washi tape. Now I'm not much of a washi tape fan, like many, but I do like the silver and gold metallic tapes. It works beautifully on Christmas cards!!.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to check out my card. Don't forget to swing by and enter the challenge!!
Happy crafting!
