Another Guest Design

I am excited to share another guest design project with you today. This is for the challenge blog “Kleuren met Potloden”. I was given the image from All Dressed Up called Crown of Hearts for the challenge. Those of you who follow my blog know that I am learning Procreate. I had drawn this background as part of a Procreate tutorial and thought this would make the perfect background for this little princess.

I removed the white background from the digi and then imported her into my background. I resized her to fit and then placed her on a layer between the layers of the hills and trees. I added another layer and used this to add a shadow under her feet since the sun is shining from behind her. I then exported the completed scene to a .jpg image. 

Once exported I moved the image to my PC and opened it into a 4x5.25 inch rectangle in Silhouette Studio. I then added a quarter inch offset and tried various colors from the background with the eye dropper tool to fill the offset and settled on a shade of orange. I then printed the image out onto Canson C a grain paper and colored the digi with my  Prismacolor colored pencils.

Once completed I cut the image down to size with my paper trimmer and added it to a standard notecard. I completed the card with a die cut sentiment added to the bottom right hand corner.

If you have a project that you have colored with pencils, I would like to invite you to share it with us at the “Kleuren met Potloden”  Challenge blog. You can use any brand of pencils.

Truly one layer

Today is time for my second project for Jan's Digital Stamps Challenge blog for this month and this month I am showing that digital stamps and elements are great to use when creating digital card fronts that can then just be printed on heavyweight cardstock and easily sent in the mail.

Stylish Ovals

I am here today with a very picture heavy post. Spellbinders sent me some goodies to create with, however just after they arrived I was not at home very much. So my projects are rather late in the release. But it is a gorgeous release, one die set more versatile than the other.

My first project is using the Essential Stylish Ovals die set as well as the gorgeous embossing folder from this release. I wanted to show off the embossing folder on this card and so let it shine on center stage. I used the largest oval in the set to create my cardbase with, used a smaller one to cut the panel that I then embossed and finally used the smaller one and one size bigger to cut a frame from holographic cardstock. The sentiment is from another set in this release called Stylish Oval Hello You Floral dies set.

Christmas BINGO

I am back today with a second project, this time one that is completely opposite to my previous one. This one is created with paper and die cuts and does not have anything digital on it. I accepted a position on the Design Team at the new Christmas BINGO Challenge blog. The challenges run for 6 weeks and you can enter any handmade Christmas themed project that uses the featured BINGO card.

Digital card design

Can you believe it that we are now already in May? Believe it a not, it is so and so here I am with my DT project for Jan's Digital Stamps Challenge blog. I am using both the image and a sentiment from the new Patriotic Poppies stamp set (linked below).
