Hey everyone. I’m back with the second of three layouts to enter into White with 1 Cyber Crop on Facebook. This time the challenge was to use a grid layout with white and blue. There were optional extras too – fill one of the grid sections with journaling or add stamping to your layout, so I added both of those.
I love these photos which were taken in 2013 at my side of the family’s Xmas get together. We pick a day other than Christmas Day that as many people can make and have a pot luck lunch…there are usually around 20 of us which makes up about half of the side of the family. These are a few of the cousins and I love seeing them still have fun playing games even though they are grown up.
Don’t the months fly by…it’s already time for a new challenge at AAA Birthday. This month go all out on your cuteness. Hop on over to the AAA Birthday blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Rachelle as this months guest designer…she had created a fabulous card this month.
Australia has been in my thoughts alot lately due to the wild fires threatening so much of the country. This card is quintessential Aussie to me. It is made using products from the fabulous Uniquely Creative Stamp company .
Used images from two stamp sets – Good Onya for the Kangaroo and Eucalyptus Branch for the eucalyptus. I stamped them on alcohol friendly cardstock (I use a either Spectrum Noir or Hammermill cardstock) and coloured them with copics.
Diecut images with matching dies.
I knew I wanted to have a subtle background so once I had laid out the coloured images on a square card base I was able to work out where I was going to stamp the background leaves.
The branches are then stamped with Altenew Inks.
Once stamped I then adhered the images with dimensional foam tape.
Ink blended three Distress Oxide ink colours – Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold – over Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and cut out Mama ElephantHooray word die.
I scanned the die cut with my Scanncut and created an offset cutting file to create the shadow background. You could also do this my hand. I cut this out of Moonstone vellum and adhered the die cut to the vellum with Glossy Accents.
Hi Everyone, it’s time for the July 2019 challenge at AAA Birthday. Come along and visit our blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Michelle Lupton as this months Guest Designer.
I used an image from one of the challenge sponsors A Day for Daisies – Potted Gerber Daisies and coloured it with Copics.
I created the base to be a sliding window card. I used the outside frame from the Mama Elephant Fancy Door Frame die set, parts of the Sunny StudioSliding Window Die and Memory Box – Stitched Rectangle Layers.
‘Thanks‘ die is from Birch Press which has the coordinating shadow. The word was cut out of white glitter paper and coloured with copics. The shadow was cut out of Lawn Fawn cardstock.
‘For Everything‘ was from the Altenew Inked Rose stamp set.
Tip: If you don’t have the right colour glitter card you can colour white or pearl glitter with copic markers. It will then coordinate with the rest of the card and still sparkle.
