Corner punches

We have a new challenge over at the Outlawz Crash Your Stash - this month the cue is Corner Punches. Well I have only ever owned one corner punch and I even found it in my stash that is currently being radically downsized.


My card today features this cute image called See Saw by All Dressed Up. I opted for a monochrome overall look with only her skin and her boots showing a pop of color. I printed her out onto Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils, doing the monochrome sections in shades of Warm Grey. Once she was completed, I trimmed the image down and used the corner punch on the bottom two corners. I cut a piece of lime green textured cardstock down to fit the image panel with some space around the sides and used the corner punch again on the bottom two corners.


I ran my cardbase through my embossing machine with a Darice polka dot embossing folder and then adhered the focal panel and the matte to each other and to the cardbase. I cut the word DREAM out of black and black glitter cardstock and adhered each of the letters to each other so that they would be a bit dimensional and then added the word in a whymsical fashion to the base of the card. I completed the card by adding a few pearls in two shades of purple.


Do you have corner punches in your stash? How about crashing them out and joining us in this month's Crash your Stash challenge at the Outlawz.

One fine day...

Today I am sharing my DT inspiration for the second half challenge for this month at Rabisco Challenge. Our sponsor is Knitty Kitty and I got to work with this image called Tail of Two Kitties. When I saw these two cats sitting on the wall, my mind raced back to days in my childhood when cats would turn night into day in the springtime!


I paired the digi with a digital paper from the Marble Magic collection by The Artsy Stamper. I thought it set the perfect visual image of the scene I described in my first  paragraph. Working in Silhouette Studio, I added the digi and the sentiment and then printed it out onto Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper. This time I colored the whole image with gel pens. I decided I wanted a lot of sparkle here. 



I colored the sentiment with a silver stardust pen and then added a line down the center with a white Posca pen. Once I had completed the coloring, I returned the card to the Silhouette and cut it out. I adhered the panel to a cardbase.

We look forward to seeing your projects over at our Rabisco Challenge and you are invited to join us.

The Pupil

Time for a new challenge at the World Wide Open Design Team Challenge blog. This month I got to work with this cute image called The Pupil by Julia Spiri. Is she not sweet sitting on top of her pile of books?


While this card is created in a traditional manner, I did size her in Silhouette Studio so that I could determine her size exactly. I also created the oval around her so that I could shape it better than any of the dies I have in my stash. I printed her out onto Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I left the books uncolored so that they are understood as not yet having been read - thus the little bit of color on the one that she is reading. That red was added with a stardust gel pen.


I returned her to the Silhouette after she was colored and cut the oval out. I created another oval as an offset from the first and cut it out of pink cardstock. I had this lovely pink plaid paper in my stash and I created a cardpanel from it for this card. I added the pink oval matte and added a strip of sparkly champagne colored washi tape across it before adding my focal image to the matte.


I completed my card by cutting the words Read and GROW out of yellow glitter cardstock and placing them on the card.

If you are a member of any design team anywhere in the world, I would like to invite you to share your projects with us at the World Wide Open Design Team Challenge blog.

Magically Progressive

If you follow my blog, you will know that I love to participate in the Outlawz Progressive Challenge. There is a new sponsor every month and the digis are such fun to find in one's email on the first of the month if you have participated in the month before. Well, this time I am Guest Designing for the challenge and here is my card made with the cute Polkadoodles Winnie.


Cuppa Mouse

It is the first of the month already and so time for a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. Our theme is always Anything Goes and this month our sponsor is Limited Runs Digital Stamps. I got to work with this sweet digi called Cuppa Mouse.


The snowman

Time for a new coloring challenge over at Colour Crazy. This time our sponsor is Fred She Said and I got to work with the Hat Tipping Snowman. I thought he looked so happy and polite.


Outlawz Progressive Freebie

As you know, I enjoy playing along with the Outlawz Progressive Challenge and this month the image is kindly provided by Imagine That Digistamp. The image is called Lorie's Mocha for all Seasons and so I decided to go with a Christmas cup, but with a twist in the background.
