Book Elf Card

book elf
Star Stampz
Star Stamps is the current sponsor of the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise. I chose to use Book Elf for my Design Team inspirational card. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and Prismacolor Blender Marker. I placed the colored image in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged it with a background and various elements from several digikits. I finished by adding some text.

I hope my card has inspired you to try your luck at the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise, where the theme is the current season.

I used the Cricut Machine to cut the lettering and printed the fireworks background using the Sparkle Sky digikit and Craft Artist 2.

If your having a bad day maybe  cheerleader card will cheer you up! This might be just the card to make and enter the digistamps4joy challenge.

Lilie for You/ a Re-release Digital Image!

http://digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/
It's time for the new releases at digistamps4joy, but today we are doing something a bit different. We are re-releasing some oldies but goodies. I chose to use Lilie for You for my Design Team inspirational card.

This lovely girl was colored using the following Copic Markers:
E00, E02, E13, E15, E18
YG03, YG61
B000, B00, B02, B05
BV11, V17, RV63
R20, R81, R83
Colorless Blender 0

The grass was cut with a die that came with Elizabeth Craft Designs #780 - Garden Bench. The die cute paper was from a pad by Recollections.

After coloring the girl, she was cut out. The die was used in the Cuttlebug Machine to cut the grass out several times. Silver metallic card stock was adhered to a white base card and the die cut sheet was layered on top. Grass was glued in a row at the bottom of the card and the cut girl was adhered to the top.

Check out the re-released digital images at Digistamps4Joy and see all the new oldies! Wouldn't one of these make a great entry into the challenge at Digistamps4Joy?

Tesla is on time!





http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=89_206

http://scrappersdelights.com/store/


There is a challenge still in progress over at Scrapper's Delights. Again, I chose to design another Steampunk card, for my Design Team Mid Inspirational Card. I used the Cogs and Gears Stand again and also Tesla Steampunk for my card. These were colored using Prismacolor Pencils and a Recollections gold metallic pen.

The two were merged in the Craft Artist 2 program. They were saved, printed out and cut out.

I placed a small piece of card stock in the Sizzix Pocket Watches Embossing folder and put it through the Cuddlebug Machine for the background, which I stained with Distress Ink.

I layered this over  black card stock and white base card, and placed Tesla on her stand at the top.

I hope you enjoyed my card and will try your luck in the challenge at Scrapper's Delights.

Boots on Plaid

Steampunk Boot 1

http://scrappersdelights.com/store/

I'm still in the Steampunk mode and since the Crafty Girlz Challenge is currently just for fun, for this card I used Steampunk Boots -1 by Scrapper's Delights.

The boots were colored using Prismacolor Pencils and metallic Gelly Roll Pens. I cut them out leaving a narrow edge of white. They were adhered to the top of several layers of card stock. The layers were adhered to a white base card.

I hope to see your work at Crafty Girlz where anything goes!

Thanks for visiting, come again!
