Donut Delight

Happy Friday! Again! It seems like I turn around once and it is Friday again. Anyway, I am here with a project to share with you. Somehow I got myself into the Kinda Cute Progressive Challenge last month and so I got this month's image to create with. Wow, look at all those carbs - a donut as big as oneself!!


This is the second cut from the page that I was successful in combining a digi cut file with a background cut file in Silhouette Studio. I printed it out on Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils, all but the sprinkles. I colored them in a pink sparkle gel pen so that they would add a bit of pop to the donut.

A friend of mine was clearing out her closets and had some specialty papers, this corrugated cardstock being one of them. I decided that would work well as a card panel for this project. So I stuck my cutout panel onto it before adhere the panel to a white cardbase.


I added two die cut sentiments from my trading card binder. I made a bunch of sentiments, gluing the word to its shadow and so I can just get one out of the binder when I need one. I tried the reverse options on the two words and I thought it looked quite cute.

Again, I have a downloadable color combo chart for this project. Please just follow my blog before you download it.

Natural Element

Today's project is another joint challenge between myself and BożenA of Art Card Box. It was her turn to call the theme and she chose "Use something from nature". So the card had to have some element on it that was either a part of a plant or for which a plant was used. Well, I live in the desert! Although the world is green here at the moment thanks to the monsoons, that is not the norm. But what we do have all year round are cacti and cacti have thorns and thorns look like unicorn horns. So I could combine nature with the magical - I think that is a win.


Meerkat Christmas

Happy Friday! Today I am here with my contribution to the Imagine That Digistamp September progressive challenge. One of the images we got is this meerkat popping out of his hole with a gift. I decided since his outline was not that complicated, I would give merging two cut files, one for the background and one for the digi, together to create one panel another try.


New Crafty Chefs Challenge

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and so time for a new Crafty Chefs challenge. As I had announced in my previous Crafty Chefs post, we now only have two requirements to enter. This month the requirements are "Add a flower" (can be focal image, embellishment or background) and "Add Gold" (can be embossing, foil, gold cardstock, etc).


Kind and Beautiful

Today is Friday again and so time for another coloring project. This time I am using a Conie Fong image on my card and this is the second experiment that I have done trying to merge a background with a focal image in Silhouette Studio. As I said in my previous post, this needs more practice.


Almost only cardstock

Last week I attended an online card class called "Crushing on Cardstock" and while some techniques were familiar to me, some were new and I enjoyed learning new things and being reminded of ones I knew. So today my project is cardstock, adhesive and a little bit of ink.


Moo-velous!

It is Friday again. How do the weeks (and months) fly by so fast? Anyway, I am playing along with the Imagine That Digistamp's Progressive Challenge and this month the image is called Pretty Calf. It came with some image variations and a few sentiments.
