CGC DT Post – Challenge #172

Hello crafty friends!

Hope you are having a lovely summer!…I can’t believe how hot it is here! (I never thought I would say that for an English summer but…little did I know!). Anyway…without further ado, it is time for another Crafty Girls Corner Challenge! This week’s theme is: “Add a Ribbon/Bow” and, as per usual, you get a chance to win amazing prizes from our super generous sponsors!

The Paper Nest Dolls

Prize ~ The 3 Digital Images used by DT

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Since  August is a wedding season for many and the theme required a ribbon/bow embellishment, I thought to create a wedding card! I used a digital stamp called “Bride 2” by Morgan’s Art World which I colored using Copic markers. To me, this image has a romantic vibe so I kept the color palette relatively pastel and natural. And I really like how it turned out. Then I created a background stamping repeatedly with the Indigo Blu – Script stamp and Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar tones. I added a ribbon in a similar pink color and then I assembled my card. Simple but effective! I didn’t add a sentiment so that I have more options when I decide to use this card (ie personalize it later or use it for a “on your wedding day” occassion or even as a “congratulations on your wedding” card).
Do you ever leave your cards without a sentiment so you can tweak them later, if you don’t currently have a use for them?
With this card I am going to enter the following challenges:

CGC DT Post – Challenge #171

Hello crafty friends!

Happy August!Unbelievable right?!It’s the last month of the summer already!!!Where did the time go?Does anyone else feel that this year is going too fast???

Anyway…as you may have guessed it, it is time for yet another Crafty Girls Corner challenge and the theme is super easy again : TROPICAL COLOURS! Fits the summer mood perfectly,don’t you think?!

And for this challenge our amazing sponsors are:

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Prize: 2 Digital Images

Prize ~ 5 Digital images

This time I created a card using Birthday Cocktail by SheepSki Designs. Such a perfect digi for hot days like these! (It’s been unusually hot lately here in the UK!) I coloured my image using Inktense Percils. Then I die cut this and another panel using unbranded oval-shaped dies. I coloured the second panel pink using Distress Oxides. For the background I lined up on my stamping platform a few sentiments from Newton’s Nook- Cocktail Mixer stamp set and stamped it several times using Hero Arts Inks in various colours. My intention was to create a happy, colourful background to add some interest to my card but also make the main image pop. The main sentiment is from the “All Occasion Sentiments” stamp set by MFT. (Honestly this is one of my most used sets, sooo versatile!) Then because I was feeling that there was something missing from my card, I added a flower from Altenew – Garden Treasure stamp set which I coloured using Prima Marketing Confections Watercolours (Tropicals). Obviously you don’t need so many different mediums for this card…but I like playing with different supplies since I have them (they are no good in the drawers,you know!). Hope you like the outcome and you feel motivated to use all these supplies you always wish to use but never do! 🙂
