That Craft Place Challenge



 
Its Sunday and that means it's time for a That Craft Place challenge and the theme this week isAnything Goes or Easter.

I haven't even thought about Easter yet!!!!  So I went for anything goes ...

 I used this amazing Steampunk image, The Artist, drawn by Lisa Cree for Ditzie Digi Designs, and coloured it in using my pens.  I added some teal frantage around the image and distressed the edges.  I used coredinations cardstock and ran them both through gears style embossing folders, before distressing the edges and sanding them off.  I added some organza ribbon, lasercute gears, and some tulle.

All these products are available at Lisa's website - That Craft Place, or on the facebook group.  You can buy lots of gorgeous digital images at the Ditzie Digi Design Etsy shop and some of the images are available as rubber stamp sets too on  Lisa's website - That Craft Place, or on the facebook group.

The first Ditzie Digi Design Challenge



Welcome to the first  Ditzie Digi Design Challenge. We are all really excited to be part of Lisa's DT as she has an amazing shop of digis from gorgeous girls, adorable animals to fab steampunk.  We will be having fortnightly challenges and will all be showcasing Lisa's amazing digis and papers, so I hope you will join in with us.  This fortnight's challenge is Anything Goes.

For this challenge I thought I would use this cute Owl set, Button Belly Owl and make a couple of cards.

Button Belly Owl. 300 dpi png images.

I used both owls and sized them the same size for the two cards.  Both are coloured in using my pens and them I cut them out for a change.

 I kept this layout really simple, simply adding some webbing, and popping the owl onto foam pads, before adding some flat backed pearls.

For this card I layered up the design paper and die cut the fence, before popping the owl onto foam pads and adding her.  The teeny hearts are the bits left from the fence - I just glued them on. 

 You can buy lots of gorgeous digital images at the Ditzie Digi Design Etsy shop and some of the images are available as rubber stamp sets too on  Lisa's website - That Craft Place, or on the facebook group.

That Craft Place Challenge

Its Sunday and that means it's time for a That Craft Place challenge and the theme this week is buttons.  We are also announcing our new DT - some of us girlies have stayed on and we have also added some amazing girls.

I was inspired to create this rainbow card having wasted an hour on pinterest - that place really does steal your life!!!  I doodled in white pen round the cardstock and in black pen round the clouds.  I tied twine through the buttons and stamped the Dream Big sentiment.  It was a really quick and simple card, but I love it :).

A few cards ...

 I have left the Visible image DT, but thought I would share some of the samples that I made from their recent Create and Craft show.  I will share the rest of them another day.


I love DCWV Linen Paper but have never used it for masculine cards.  I stamped the key and cars onto the dp and then coloured Bradley in using my pens.  I stamped the sentiment and added it a quirky angle. 

Challenges: 
Graph it - Male colours
Crafty Catz - boys and their toys

 I do like doing CAS cards and this stamp set lends itself perfectly to very clean and simple.  I stamped the flower parts in distress ink, and added the pearl centre.  I doodles round the edge of the card and then stamped the sentiment.

Challenges:
Charisma Cardz - birthday girls
Fuss n fancy - happy birthday 
Allsorts - pretty in pink

 For this card I scored a diamond pattern in the white cardstock, but it really hasn't chown up in the photo and added pearls to some of the crosses. I coloured the castle in using my pens and then stamped the sentiment.  Finally I added some ribbon and a bow.
Challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - ribbons and bows
Addicted to CAS - Luck (a wedding card)
Daring Cardmakers - fairytale



Challenges:
 Cute Card Thursday - girls, girls, girls
ABC - H is for Hair

All these stamps are available at Visible Image.
