Steampunk Hat Card

https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/269362610/digital-stamp-digi-coloring-hat-stamps?ga_search_query=steampunk+hat&ref=shop_items_search_1
https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JuliaSpiri?ref=l2-shopheader-name
The current sponsor of the Classic Design Team Open Challenge is Julia Spiri. I chose to use the Steampunk Hat for my Design Team inspirational card.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and cut it out leaving a narrow white edge. Using my Cuddlebug Machine, I cut gears from the Sizzix Bigz Gadget Gears die. I rubbed Distress Ink over a piece of paper embossed with Pocket Watches, which I made from the Sizzix embossing folder, also in my Cuddlebug Machine. I cut out 2 watches .

I adhered a gold piece of card stock to a black base card. Next I glued the 3 gears and 2 watches onto the gold card. Finally I adhered the Steampunk Hat to the top of the card.

 I hope this card inspires you to try your luck at the Classic Design Team Open Challenge, where anything goes for those who are design team members.

Happy New Year Card

https://www.zibbet.com/rick1949/rosy-romanza-valentine-girl-digi-stamp
https://www.zibbet.com/rick1949
There's a new challenge at A Snowflakes Promise and it's being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis. I chose Valentine Girl to use for my Design Team Inspirational card. Instead of Valentine's Day she is decked out for a New Year's Eve gala!

I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the outfit using a Prismacolor blender. I cut the girl out leaving a white edge and put soft pads on the back to create a 3D illusion.

I trimmed a die cut sheet from the Recollections pad to fit over a multi colored blue piece of card stock. I adhered the two layers on the top of a blank scalloped edge card.

I printed and cut out a small New Year's tag in the Craft Artist 2 program, which I placed on the card and popped the Valentine Girl on top.

I hope to see your work in the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise!

Did you know that Digistamps4Joy has a lovely paper doll and three so adorable outfits? Penny is so cute and because she is  digital image, she's very versatile. Each outfit is sold separately. You can merger her as I did above with each outfit and color her. In this way you can use her as you would  digi image...maybe for a birthday card. I put Penny in her Kimono and in a lovely scene made in the Craft Artist 2 with the Oriental Blossom digikit.

You can print Penny and her outfits separately, add tabs for the clothing to hang from the doll and then color and cut for traditional paper doll fun. Here I have merged Penny and her cheering outfit to show you, how to work with her. Outfit and doll sold separately.
Instruction sheet
 You could also use the printed cute outfits as a template to design your own fashions. These can be colored or cut from print scrap paper. I used the Penny image to design 2 dresses. It's just another way to use this set.
 Any of these suggestions could of course be adhered to Penny and used as a motif on a card, tag or other type of project. These and many more are yours to choose.

Paper doll fun could be a young persons' first experience in the creative fashion process.

Have fun and show us your designs in the current challenge at Digistamps4Joy.

Steam Punk Sally Card





http://www.disdigistamps.com/


Dis Digistamps is currently sponsoring the challenge at Crafting from the Heart and you can win some pretty wonderful digi stamps, if you participate. Since the Design Team had the chance to pick their images from any artist I chose Steam Punk Sally from Stitchy Bear for my inspirational card.

Here I am practicing my Copic Markers again!
I used the following colors:

E00, E000, E13, E15, E18. E21, E29
BV11, BV08,
V17
B32, B34, B37, B39

I also used a black Micron 01 Pen for some of the fine line details. For the bit of gold I used a metallic Recollections Pen. I embossed a cream colored piece of card stock using the Sizzix Steampunk Embossing folder and rubbed Distressing Ink over the surface with a blending tool. the gears were cut using the Sizzix Gadget Gears die. I used my Cuddlebug Machine for these embellishments. I layered these on a black base card and adhered Sally to the top.

I hope you are planning to join the challenge at Crafting from the Heart, where anything goes!

Santa's Visit Card

http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_97&products_id=795
http://scrappersdelights.com/store/


Check out the current challenge at Scrapper's Delights!

For this one holiday greeting card, I used three Scrapper's Delights digital stamps, including: Room 2, Father Xmas Digi Stamp 5 and Xmas Room1.

First I colored Room 2 with Prismacolor Pencils and then cut out the window. I placed a sheet of printed card stock, to show clouds behind the window opening. It was scanned and placed in the Craft Artist 2 program.

Second I colored the Father Xmas Digi Stamp 5 with Prismacolor Pencils and scanned it and placed it in the Craft Artist 2 program, where I merged it with Room 2. I printed the room with Santa once and then printed Santa alone. I cut Santa out and placed soft pads on the back and adhered Santa to the room scene creating a 3D image.

Third I cut away the room part of Xmas Room1, saving the branches and gifts. I colored the branches and gifts with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and placed thicker soft pads on the make. It was adhered to the room scene letting the door show through the branches. The scene was glued to a green mat on a white base card.

There is still time to enter the challenge at Scrapper's Delights. Hope to see your work there!

In Honor of Veteran's Day!

I would like to share with you the two men I know and the experiences they had during WWII. This story was written sometime ago and some of it was printed in a national magazine.Here it is, the whole story!
Two Views of World War II
 by Carla Brooke

For just about as far back as I can remember the camera has always been an important element in any events occurring in my family.  Whether it be my first steps or simply a beautiful panoramic view, my father recorded it for all the world to see and admire.
Before I came along dad had plenty of resources for his camera work, for he was stationed in New Delhi, India, as an Army radioman during World War II.  He was considered quite a shutterbug around his base, always on the look out for that great photograph.  While looking dad acquired a good deal of knowledge of the area and was assigned to drive high-ranking officials throughout the provinces.  Many shots taken on these trips later became award-winning photographs in the years following the war.


I recently discovered that my father was not only a wonderfully talented photographer, but a skilled writer as well.  The evidence of this is in the original copy of a story he wrote while on board a ship returning from World war II and illustrated with his own black and white pictures of the soldiers returning home after 33 days at sea.
Here is the original story by my father, Jack Gutstein.




THE PICTURE THAT GOT AWAY
I and about 700 other G.I.’s, were passing our thirty-third day at sea.  Our ship, The General Bliss, was now steaming serenely through peaceful waters, heading for San Francisco.  The Far East was now but an unpleasant memory.  The dangerous passage through the mine-infested Makassar Straits had become a mere passing incident, as was our stop-over in Guam.  Perhaps, there still lingered some impressions of the havoc wrought by war on Manila and Manila Bay; Corregidor, and Bataan, where the marauding Huks hunted, and were hunted, in those far-off green hills.  Gone were those frustrating hours spent in seeking calmer waters so that an appendectomy might be performed upon one of us.  Fragments of the resentment we felt for the poor chow and the bilge in the water lockers were fast melting in the warmth of the sun.

An air of expectancy, an electrical tension seemed to have charged the atmosphere around us.  The hubbub of voices dwindled slowly into silence.  It was a profound silence, but it spoke volumes as faces turned to look upward toward the crow’s nest.  Feet shuffled, someone coughed, a bell sounded somewhere.  Then the silence closed in again.  Only the gentle lapping of the swells along the sides of the ship punctuated the silence.

Then, land ahead!  The cry crackled and whipped throughout the ship.  It was picked up, relayed and relayed again.  Land ahead!  It traveled from prow to stern and amidship faster than here I can possibly tell about it.
Seven hundred G.I.’s then tore away all restraint.  As if ordered by some prearranged command, we started to climb.  Up and over the forbidden top decks we went.  Over the bridge and into the rigging climbed an eager brown horde.  In minutes every high point of vantage held its’ quota of men.  Again faces turned in unison, this time to peer intently toward the eastern horizon toward land, toward home.

Callously, I brought my camera to bear upon some of the faces around me.  The first face I focused upon disturbed me.  With the second, I found myself lowering the camera gently to my side.  Guiltily I looked about me!  I felt as though I were a trespasser.  As though I were violating the innermost privacy of each of the men I chanced to scrutinize.  On these faces were painted pictures of joy such as I have never before witnessed.  All about me moistened eyes told the story.  Here, campaign-hardened veterans, from the fetid, stinking jungles of Burma, the desert of India and other black holes of the orient, were standing unmasked for all to see.
Gingerly I changed position.  Eagerly, I let my eyes strain forward, my being filled with an explosive mixture of emotions.  Spontaneously, I joined in the wild cheering when we sighted the Golden Gate Bridge.  We were home.

Photography isn’t just limited to my side of the family.  My father-in-law, Anthony Brooke Sr., who caught the camera bug from his father, Arthur Brooke (a photographer in World War I), was born in Los Angeles, but grew to his mid-teens on a farm owned by his grandparents in England.  His parents, British subjects, were separated.  The farm is where young Tony became “fascinated by motion pictures and always wanted to be a cameraman,” he told me.

In 1938 my father-in-law rejoined his mother in New York and in 1943 married Marjorie Sugerman.  By the time my husband Anthony Brooke Jr. was born the following year, Tony was in a foxhole in Normandy.  He had been drafted in 1943, just when film director George Stevens began assembling the Special Coverage Unit of the U.S. Army Signal Corps.  As part of  “the Stevens Unit” or “the Hollywood Irregulars,” Tony became part of the small camera teams who moved from army to army covering the major events of the war.   Tony’s unit was based in London and “assigned like any news team.”  On D-Day he recalled, “the roar of thousands of planes overhead, bound for French targets.”



He started shooting the Canadian units at Gold Beach in Normandy, who met with little resistance, compared with the fierce fighting on Omaha Beach.  From there he was on his way to Paris with Gen. George Patton.  Once there he had incurred Patton’s wrath, when Tony replaced a carbine he carried with a pearl-handled pistol.  Patton, a stickler for rules, spotted the pistol and glared at Tony.

On the way to Germany, Tony shot a documentary on the second battle of Dunkirk, where German troops had breached the sea wall, surrounding themselves with water.  Czech troops fighting in the Allied cause surrounded the Germans and Tony filmed the siege until the Germans surrendered.  For this Tony won the Czechoslovakian Medal of Merit.  He went on to film the horror of the Nazi concentration camps and his final assignment was covering the Potsdam Conference, where President Truman, British Prime Minister Churchill and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin were deciding the shape of the post war world.


My father-in-law Tony Brooke won a Bronze Star for having “moved forward with advanced elements of United States troops in order to obtain more spectacular photographic coverage.”  He also got a commendation from Gen. Eisenhower as a member of the Special Motion Picture Coverage Unit.



Back in the States Tony became a union member which won him work as a skilled cameraman.  He worked for many years shooting television commercials and also helped to shoot several major motion pictures, before retiring to Las Cruces, New Mexico.

My husband Anthony Brooke Jr., who was stationed in Alaska during the Vietnam War, is a retired motion picture cameraman, who also shot many, many commercials and movies, now takes pleasure in digital still photography.  Sandy’s photographs have found their way into many newspapers, magazines and several art shows.  Photography continues to be a major focus in my family.

A Paris Cafe Card

http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=908
http://scrappersdelights.com/store/
A new challenge begins today at Scrapper's Delights. I used Paris Cafe for my Design Team inspirational card.

I colored this lovely lady using Copic Markers and placed it in the Craft Artist 2 program. The image was merged with elements from the Craft Scapes Parisan Spring Digikit. The scene was printed once and the digi image was printed once alone and cut out. I placed soft pads on the back of the cut image and placed it on the printed scene giving the lady a 3D illusion.

The printed 3D card was adhered on top of a green mat on a white base card.

I hope my card has inspired you to try your luck in the challenge at Scrapper's Delights, where anything goes.

Three Singing Elves Card Boxes



Box Holds 8 Elf Cards
Flynn
When I saw the first of Mo Manning's Singing elves, I knew right away I had to own all three!

I colored each with Copic Markers, planning where to enhance the images with simple patterns drawn with those markers.
Wynn and Bryn

Bryn
I cut each elf out in two sizes to work with a small set of blank Christmas cards. For some I used my Cuttlebug and cut black lampposts with the Tim Holtz Alterations (Sizzix) die.

Wynn
I adhered the elves and lamppost to the cards and made card stock boxes for 2 collections. Each box holds 8 cards.
Second Box

It was a fun project to work on.
