Hello, If you read my precious post, you know I was playing with my fellow Kards For Kids team members this weekend, we went on a virtual cruise, while playing in challenges and making cards for the kids!
Above is my card for challenge #5 Paris France, we were to make a card with a Paris flair! Bela provided us with the image, designer paper and flowers!
For Challenge #6, we were shown a beautiful picture of Greece and had to make a card using blue, white and a summer theme! I used Sailboat Riley, and Shoreline dp from American Crafts.
For Challenge #7, we were to create a card with florals, using a photo from Venice, Italy as inspiration. I used Window Riley with some glittery designer paper!
and lastly Challenge #8, the 50's shows. We had the image and papers provided, along with the die cut ice cream float. I added some tiny circle punch outs to the top for bubbles and then covered them with stickles.
Hello, The Team Members of Kards For Kids had a fun virtual cruise yesterday, with challenges and prizes from our Awesome leader Bela! Here are my cards for the first 4 challenges!
Above is is the card for challenge #1 Bon Voyage, Bela sent us the image, die cuts and some dp to create with!
Challenge #2 Included the Chef image from Kenny K and the cake die cut. We also had a buffet table photo for inspiration!
Challenge #3 was Sunbathing on Deck which included the stamped image from YNS, designer paper and the die cut lawn chair. I got to practice with copic hair colouring, not too bad for my first time with such a large area!
and Challenge #4, was a photo inspiration challenge with flamenco girls and the colours black, pink, green and red. I love this one, great Teen card!
I Have #5 & 6 done, and still have to work on #7 & 8 so I'll be posting them later!
Hello, this is another card I made for my Niece. She loves Unicorns, so this Unicorn from Bugaboo Stamps was perfect! We also got her a gift card to one of her favorite stores, so I used Kim's Tutorial on SCS to make a Pop-Up gift card holder!
The card base is daffodil delight, with a layer of white embossed with the Love Language EF. The dp is from Heidi Grace-Daisy Dear. I coloured the image with copics, adding gold copic atyou spica to the horn. I also added dazzling diamonds glitter to the mane and tail, and tiny gems to the flowers. The sentiment is from the SU Short &; Sweet set.
Here's a peek at the inside. I used white on the inside and dp for the pop-up part. The sentiment inside is from SU Happiest Birthday Wishes set.
Hello, I made this for my Niece Lauren, she turns 12 on February 13th!
I used the Freshly Made Sketch FMS72. Sorry it's not the best photo, I forgot to take one at home!
I used the Die-namics first place awards ribbon set. The card base is pixie pink with a layer of soft sky and then white on the bottoms embossed with Seeing Spots. The top is glittery dp (?) which I also used to make the ribbon tails.
Hello, it's time for another Challenge from Riley and Company! This weeks challenge is hosted by Kelly, and she's challenging us to show some love, make a Valentine or love card using non-traditional colours, not red or pink!
For my card today, I used Stamping Riley and coloured him with copics. I added a tiny glittery heart to the card he made.
The card base is crumb cake, stamped with the French Script BG stamp, and all edges are sponged with crumb cake.
The tag was made using the Shapeabilities Tag Shape 3 die and white card stock. I embossed it with the woodgrain EF, and then ran the crumb cake ink pad over it.
The hearts were made with a Martha Stewart punch and champagne glimmer paper.
Please join us in our challenge, and upload your creation to the Riley and Company Blog. If you upload to any forums, please use the Keyword RILEY0313.
Hello, well you may have heard the news that Becky and Joycelyn from Totally Stampalicious have decided to close up shop. This certainly can't have been an easy decision, and I sure will miss designing for them.
My name is Laurie, I Live in Ontario, with my Husband and girls. We have a yours, mine & ours family! We each have a Daughter from our 1st marriage & we have a Daughter together!
I have always loved to craft, sew, paint etc. and in 2007 was introduced to cardmaking & papercrafting! Now my sewing machine is dusty & I have a whole new hobby! I am off work on disability, so having a creative outlet is priceless!
This hobby has also helped me learn other things, like how to put pictures on a computer, and post them online, and now...making a blog! So here goes...
