Winnie Balloon Days- Paper Piecing


Hello again, 

Today brings us to a new Challenge for Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in our Paper Piecing challenge which I am playing host, we have one lovely sponsor this week Polkadoodles  will be giving the lucky winner a voucher for three digi stamps from their store. 
Prize voucher for 3 digi images from their shop

I have used one of our sponsors super cute digi stamps Polkadoodles Winnie Balloon Days to make my card. I printed the image off twice in draft to decide which size I wanted to use and would work best for my card before printing it onto cardstock to colour and then using the draft copy to tape my patterned papers to that I intended on paper piecing and printing it off again. I created a little scene for Winnie using more pieces of scrap papers from my stash who will know that some of the pieces came from my Christmas paper scrap bag??? Red and green spotty papers are easily used at different times of the year, I also busted through some white scraps to make the fence, clouds and punched flowers. Two clouds and the grassy edges in front of the fence are popped up on foam tape to add some dimension, I added the flowers to the ground after deciding it needed something a little extra to finish the card off.

This challenge is open until June 19th, and you can add your project by using the Linky tool on the Challenge blog here. Please be sure to link your project back to us.

One for the Boys


Hello again, 


Today brings us to a new Challenge for Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in our and show us what you are making, we have lovely sponsor this week Ike’s Art will be giving the lucky winner $20 gift certificate for their store. 




  Prize $20 gift certificate for the store


I have made a card for my neighbour’s son, who will be 18y later this year, they have been here since he was two. I used my Distress Oxide Inks to create a background, having a bit of playtime working out which colours I would use, this panel has Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Broken China. Test stamped on my sample piece and heat embossed with some metallic glitter embossing powder to be sure that was the right colour combo to go with, the stamps are from my mixed bag of stamps from Darkroom Door. I added some die cut and hand punched stars to the panel before adding the sentiment which I heat embossed in black and fussy cut, adding die cut numbers for his age. Sentiment is popped up on some double sided foam tape. When it was all finished and put together I wished that I had thought to add some extra texture by way to some cotton or twine, behind the sentiment, but all was stuck down tight. Some bling added randomly to finish the card.
