WCMD with MFT #3 By the Numbers

Ok here’s challenge # 3 for My Favorite Things, World Card Making Day challenge.

Challenge 3: BY THE NUMBERS

Create a card that features a number in a prominent way. It can be a die-cut number, a stamped number, or even the representation of a number (five cute frogs for a favorite five-year-old’s birthday, perhaps?)

 

Here is the Silver Anniversary card I made (Pinterest Inspired).  I really like how it turned out.  It allowed me to blow the dust off of some of my older embossing folders.

The inside just says congratulations, Happy Anniversary!

I just embossed the panel and popped it up with pop dots.  I cut the 25 out of glitter paper with my Cricut and then added just a few pearls to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

WCMD with MFT – Challenge #2

Ok, here is challenge #2 for My Favorite Things World Card Making Day challenge.  

 

Challenge 2: DIE-NAMICS DESIGNS

Our noon challenge is all about die cutting. Put your stamps and inks away for a bit because you won’t be needing them for this challenge. Create a card that features 100% die cutting for a chance to win our noon prize.

Enter your card by 10 pm EDT on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Winners will be announced Monday, October 9, 2017.

Ok luckily you don’t have to have MFT products to play along (because for some reason I don’t own any..oh the horror!).

I made a simple thank you card for this one.

The background die is from Taylored Expression and the Thank you I cut 5 times and layered together.  The die is from YNS. I also added some glossy accents to the sentiment.  The DP is just from my stash.

I hope you like it.  I’ll be back later on with challenges 3 & 4 🙂

World Cardmaking Day!

Happy WCMD everyone!

 

This weekend I am playing along with some challenges set up by My Favorite Things!

This is their first challenge:

Challenge 1: ROYGBIV

Let’s kick the day off with COLOR. Your first challenge of the day is to create a card featuring the rainbow — either a literal rainbow or, by simply integrating the colors of the rainbow into your design in any way you see fit.

I really had to think about how I was going to do this one.  So I decided on stamping! I pulled out my Pun Intended set by Stamping UP, because I thought the camera would be perfect to stamp in rainbow colors.

The great thing about this challenge is that you don’t have to use My Favorite Things products to play along (which is good because I don’t own any but would sure like to win one of their gift certificates to the store that they are giving to random challenge participants!).

So without further adieu, here is my card! I really like how it turned out!  I just added a view of the violet sequins to pair up with the orange on this card.

Don’t forget to play along for your chance to win!

KBD #105

Morning all!

Happy Friday and here are the deets on our new challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs!

Our sponsors this week are Fred She Said

and also Just Me Digital Stamps 

Our theme this week is : Kiddy Cards (card for a kid, image of a kid or kid’s things like toys, games, etc)

This is a pretty easy challenge, given that we have halloween coming up, who doesn’t love to see cute kids in costumes, right?  All the details are on the blog!

So I am using an adorable image from Fred She Said.   You know I love precolored digis, so this one is just adorable.  It does also come in a naked (ie b&w, or non colored) format as well.  I think it is Nolan & the Bullfrog

 

dav

I just used some scraps from my bin and added just some twine and a few sequins.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple to highlight the image.  I hope you like it!

 

Please don’t forget you have until 11:55 HST tonight to get your comments in to win some digis in our New Release Blog Hop!

3 digi images of winners choice

and also  Di’s Digi Stamps

Here is my fun halloween card using some pre-colored images from Sparkle & Sprinkle.  I decided to make a shaker card this time, since I had just bought some fun Halloween bits for the inside and it had been awhile since I had made one!

I fussy cut the witch and one of the bats and added it to the front of the shaker card.  The DP is just from my stash and I added a few dots with my Viva Pen.  The shaker mix I just bought at the dollar store and added a few purple sequins.

I hope you will stop by the blog and check out all the great projects the DT has created for you, and link up your own project this week.  As always our challenge is anything goes, so show us what you are working on this week!

Merry & Bright

Hello all! Fresh back from Disneyland which was amazing!  I’m going to be working on my son’s autograph album and a scrap album of the trip so hopefully I will have layouts in the near future to share with you.

For now though, it’s a new challenge day at Penny’s.  Our sponsor this week is Cute as a Button .  This week’s prize is 2 single images from their store.

Taking a break from my autumn cards I created a fun little Christmas card using just supplies that I received in a recent swap.  It was fun to challenge myself to only use what was in the box! For coloring of the image, I just did some basic water coloring and I added a bit of glossy accents to the tree ornaments.  I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us for the challenge, as always the theme is anything goes!
