The Outlawz Creative Challenge2-Entry 2

Love, love this very pretty image " Holiday Alyssa"! She's a free image created by Sandi and used her for my second entry to The Outlawz Creative Challenge. I paper-pieced her dress and put glittter glue on her hat and the stocking she's holding. The designer paper I used is from DCWV Spring Stack 2009 collection. I punched one edge using ek Success Swirl Edger Puncher. The small letter dots was made using red circled letters from my stash and gluing each of them on round pink bubble stickers. Here's my card:

Enter at least one project with any of the free digis provided by either Anne or Sandi to receive the next set of images.

CDAC Progressive Challenge #7-Entry 2

My second entry to the CDACPC7 is an image "Bailey with Honey Bee" from Sew Many Cards. I used a floral background paper of  DCWV from the Retro Prints Paper Stack. For the borders on the floral bp, I used Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page Cherry Blossom design and glue some yellow crystal gems for each of the floral centers.
 This funny looking bee is handmade by yours truly. I just drew a sketch of the whole bee, cut it from a peach board paper and used brown promarker pen for the stripes on the body. I made the wings from a parchment paper, decorated with glitter glue and attached with PVA glue. For the antennae, I folded a V design thin brown wire and curled the sides. I attached it on the back of the bee with tape. That small googly eyes made him cute, don't you think?

Small Bear Gift-CDACPC 7 Entry 1

I bought this Sizzix Bigz Die Cups Candy a year ago and I think this makes a perfect bag for a small bear gift from Pimboli. The die template includes 2 designs for the sides and a bottom for five and six sides. I used the five bottom for my box which makes a smaller cup. Decorated each side with red board paper and red gingham paper before gluing them all together. After coloring and cutting an image "Apple" from Heart Song Designs , I attached them on each sides with foam tapes. This image is a freebie and my first entry to the Crafter's Digital Arts Center Progressive Challenge Round 7:
Here's a view of the different sides. For the handle, I cut a thin strip of red board paper and red gingham paper and attached with double-sided tape on the inside of the cup.

The Birthday sentiment is from Sending Treasures and is also a freebie for the Progressive Challenge:

The Outlawz Progressive Challenge-Entry 1

Over at The Outlawz, Anne Fenton and Sandi Huggett generously gave away 4 lovely Christmas images to start off the Progressive Challenge. For my first card, I used Anne's Christmas wreath. I made a simple card using blue as my main color scheme. It's the same color I'm using for my house this Christmas so that's what inspired me to incorporate it in my card. Added some small blue balls and glitter glue on the poinsettias for a more festive look. I gave the bird a different hue just to let it stand out. I tried using blue but not very interesting to look at. I hope you like it.

Steampunk Amelia & Shaker Clock

The celebration continues for the 500 followers of Sassy Studio Design Paper Craft Planet Group! For the Progressive Challenge #2, the challenge is to create a project using Steampunk Amelia plus a clock(s) and/or gears.
For my card, I used a vintage clock image from Graphics Fairy and made my own shaker clock. I glued an empty round of small scotch tape on top of the clock image and put some sequins and metal gears. For the cover, I punched a circle a bit bigger than the clock, made a round hole at the center to look like a ring leaving 1/4 inch border to get a view of the clock underneath, covered with transparency and glued this on top of the clock face.
See how the contents inside move when you shake the card. The sentiment I used is from Ginger's House.

CDAC Progressive Challenge #3

It's all about women for my entries in the CDAC Progressive Challenge#3.
My first card is an Oak Fairy from Gurukitty Designs. I find the image very mysterious and I designed a card that made her blend with the leafy background. I can imagine walking into the woods full of falling leaves and looking closely, I find a lovely creature sharing the gentle breeze of the autumn air. Such a wonder to behold!
The leafy background is a freebie from Spyder's Corner which you can find here.
 I think the sentiment from TlcCreations best describes the wonder and mystery of the image.
My second card is an image from Lia Stampz. I made a very simple one with embossed  background. The Texture Template is a recent purchase from a local craftstore. It's from Sizzix Texture Plates Kit #9, a total of 6 very elegant and floral embossing plates. The plate I used is called the Formal Fanfare.

A 3-D Card and Bizzy Bec's Challenge

This week, I'm trying out a new card technique with the use of a 3-D card template. More and more movies are being shown on 3-D, so why not a card? This technique uses miniature templates of different objects like shoes, bags, even a mini store and whatever fancies your imagination. One on-line store I've come across which carries a variety of awesome 3-D templates is Cut and Craft .
For my card, I used Cut and Craft's Small Gazebo and display box template. The download for the template includes illustrations and very easy to follow instructions. You can decorate the gazebo however you like, just make sure to plan the design before assembling. I'm using this template for my entry in the Bizzy Bec's September Challenge which is a Colour Challenge using blue, green and white. The image I used is from Bizzy Bec's Blue Butterfly digi stamps "Once upon a time....Collection" called Roses Roses. They're having a sale now so it's the best time to buy some of their many lovely collections.
Here's my finished card:
I decorated the gazebo with my handmade glittered blue roses, laces of green leaves stickers and wide green ribbon as stair carpet . Here's a close-up view of the lovely image Roses Roses:
The finished card is 6.5"x 8.5" and about 1.5"thick. The template also includes a box template with handle for the card. I think anyone would love to receive a 3-D card and can have it framed later on to always remember you by.

CDAC Progressive Challenge #2

It's Back to School theme for CDAC Freebie Progressive Challenge #2. The challenge details can be found here. Speaking of school, we're also having our highschool reunion this coming Saturday. Already excited to see my former classmates and batchmates. I'm handling the finance committee so I've been busy collecting and issuing funds for the event. Luckily though, I was able to make a card for the challenge. I used a Tortagialla image and made a backpack-shaped card. Here's my card:
I made a simple square tag that looks like a piece of writing paper and attached with a mini circular ring. The font I used for my sentiment is School Script Dashed.

Falloween Cat freebie at D2D

I had time to play at Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge this week with this very cute freebie "Falloween Cat". It's the first week of September, so everyone is welcome to get the freebie. If you want to have a collection of more adorable images, you can join the progressive challenge or visit Designed 2 Delight digital stamps.
It's preparation time again for that fun time of the year-Halloween! I am not much for the scary costumes and decors, but I love making cute Halloween cards and tags with sweet treats for my family and friends. For my card, I combined the Stitched Pumpkin image and Falloween Cat. It's a simple easel card with faux stitching on the frame to complement the stitched pumpkin.
I found some printed buttons on my stash with same color combinations of my card and decorated them with white and black nylon strings. The background paper I used is from a digital halloween paper of Pink Petticoat.
A closer look at the buttons and the nylon strings:

This is how the card looks when folded as a regular card.

CDAC Progressive Challenge

CDAC is having a new freebie progressive challenge. The Progressive Kick-off Challenge is only till today and I hope I could enter mine just in time. They gave away 6 wonderful images from different artists. I printed them all but managed to finish only one. Hopefully I could play with more next time. Find all the details here on how to join.
For my card, I played with the chef image and here's what I came up with:
This is the chef image which I cut and glued on a frame- a freebie from Scrapalicious Times. I can't find the exact post of the freebie. Maybe it's from her previous blog.

Printing a smaller size of the same frame, I made my own sentiment using Cutie Pop font. The program I used is Pages. I am still trying to make this one into a jpeg or png file so I can share it with you. Hopefully I will  be able to save it in a downloadable file for everyone to enjoy.
Using the same size of the smaller frame, I printed and cut a Peach Pie image from Beccy's Place. I made mine an apple pie and glued it on the frame. You can find the image here.

Chrissy, the Christmas Fairy at MPS

Wow, it's been weeks since my last post! I had been busy creating a leaflet design for my cousin's highschool reunion. And because of the unpredictable weather, I was not feeling so well the past few days.

Before I got sick, I won the "Name the Christmas Fairy" at Michelle Perkett Studio's new image. I suggested the name "Chrissy" representing the Christmas Spirit and I was so happy Michelle liked the name. I was able to color her but was not able to finish the card until now. I tried a new card fold technique called "Tri-fold Shutter Card" which involved a lot of measuring and scoring. There are various folds you can make but here's one tutorial you can start with. Here's my card:
I colored her in pink and red hues because I think she represents the true Christmas meaning of love and life. I colored her gorgeous wings with glitter. 
The sentiment is a part of the Snowman with heart image also from Michelle Perkett Studios and the frame is a freebie from Tiffany Doodles.
This is the Snowman with heart image and I added dots similar to the Christmas fairy image. I think it's cute in pink, don't you?
