Some inspiration from our fabulous DT
 
Dr. Monika

Here is a romantic card with lovely colours and gorgeous handmade flowers from Little Birdie Crafts. For the background, I have used Lindy's Stamp Gang's magical shakers. I have used flatback pearls from my stash and cute sentiment from Tim Holtz.

Josephine

Some paper embroidery from me, with sticky gems completing the flowers.

Glenda

A romance card using die cuts, a craft flower with a large pearl center and 3 pearls attached to two corners of the card.

Judy

I created this card for a niece's birthday card using a digital image by Norma J. Burnell. I just love her images, so pretty. Once I had coloured my image with copics I added some Prima flowers and pearls to complete the card.

Angela

Made this card using layering stamps by Altenew. The background was Oxide inks and finished with a Bokeh effect. The sentiment stamp was from the same set as the Jelly Fish and I stamped the smallest ones onto the card blank, finishing the design with coloured pearls.

Marlene

I have used a cute stamp from Whimsy Stamps lots of flowers. Coloured with Promarkers

Mary

I matted cardstock from Hunkydory's Midnight Dots to Diamonds papercraft pad onto white card and added pearls to it. The hammerheads were cut using dies and paper from Sweet Design's Water World set. The stamp for the sentiment was from the same collection.

Margaret

This card was created for a dear friend of mine. She loves purples and lilacs so I felt this paper was perfect for her. I have decorated the card with heat embossing, a strip of dp down the center and a diecut and flower. A number of tiny pearls and gems were added to add some bling and pizzaz!!

Have fun with your crafting!!

Jackie

I know, I know.... but you have to start sometime! This is my first Christmas card of the year and I used distress inks to blend the background, a simple stamp and some gems and pearls for baubles.

Maike

I love this cute mermaid by C.C.Designs holding a pearl in her hand and thought she would be perfect for this challenge! The background was made using distress inks and a stencil by My Favorite Things. Happy crafting, Maike

Lin
My card was made with one of Leonie Pujol's gorgeous circus stamps, which I stamped with versafine and embossed with clear powder and then coloured in partially with three different Zig Clean Color brush pens. My gems are in the centre of the main image and around the base of the easel card. More information on my blog

It wasn't hard to find a card for this challenge, as adding a few gems to a card has become one of my favourite things to do.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

#239 It’s A Bug’s Life

Lin is hosting today's challenge, It's A Bug's Life.

We would love to see your creations with Bugs/Insects on. Please don't make it a tiny bug in the corner of your project!!!!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Lin

My bug is a Mechanimals Grasshopper, Eye on the Prize, from SCAD. I made an art journal page to pop him on. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set. Please see my blog for more details.

Josephine

For this I created a background with Distress Ink on watercolour paper. I then used the dragonfly stamp from an issue of Creative Stamper magazine with designs by Crafty Individuals. I embossed the images with white embossing powder. For the central element, I embossed the same image with a dark blue embossing powder on to an offcut of the background and added some green and blue to that with Promarkers.

Glenda

I used a rubber stamp, butterfly punches and a dragonfly die cut. Coloured the image with Prismacolor markers and added some pearls to complete the card face.

Judy

I have been playing with my alcohol Inks and decided it would make a nice background paper for my dragonfly die. I had heard about using Kilz (a primer/sealer) on mixed media paper to seal the paper to be able to use alcohol on it. I also used several colours of Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops on the wings.

Angela

Stamps and stencils were used for this card with Tim Holtz Distress inks. The stamps are by All and Create and Tim Holtz. The stencils are by Crafter's Workshop and Imagination Crafts. A few gems completed the card. Details for making are on my blog. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Margaret

Created the background for my card with Distress Inks, stamps and embossing powders and then layered on a strip of paper, a diecut and a piece of floral lace. Details can be found on my blog. Have a lovely, crafty day!! Marg xx

Mary

I have used Hunkydory's The Lily Pond dragonfly die and the accompanying paper pad and matted the design onto black card. I added some bees cut using a Tattered Lace Peony Pavilion Accents die and a sentiment.

Jo

I wanted the die cut layered butterfly to be the focal point so did some simple matting & layering....added some die cut frosting, some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers & finished with a few faux pearls.

Played with this beautiful 3D embossing folder in a class recently which is just perfect for this latest challenge. Lots more samples over on my blog.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

#238 Here Comes Summer

Chanya is hosting today's challenge, Here Comes Summer. We chose this theme because from today the team are on their Summer break. We will see you back here on 19th August.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Chanya

Hello, today I want to show you a simple card for a man who love travelling. Have a good holiday :)

Josephine

I've used masking, Card-io Majestix stamps, Memento and Distress inks, Pan Pastel and a die from Joanna Sheen to make this card.

Glenda

I used a Stampin' Up stamp from a set titled "Beautiful You, coloured her with Prisma markers,and framed the card with Stampin' Up Pacific Point cardstock. The flower & leaves are from a die and the small banners are from a Stampin' Up punch.

Mary

The image is made using a decoupage sheet from the House Mouse Silly Summer set which was produced by Joanna Sheen. The sunflower paper is a remnant from my stash.

Judy

This card was made using a rubber stamp by Art Impressions called Beach. The image was coloured with Copics, pencil crayon and a Posca pen. I also used real shells, sand and a texture stamp by JRL Designs.

Margaret

It seems a little odd to be creating cards with Summery colours at the moment as, down here in Australia, it is the dead of winter! Must say it was kinda nice though using bright and cheery colours, makes the day seem warmer somehow. Looking forward to seeing all of your Summery creations! Have fun!

Angela

Summer makes me think of Sunflowers so I've used this Woodware stamp. First layer is a mop-up card, the background and the flower a combination of Distress Oxide inks. I finished the flower with Stickles Glitter glue and Glossy Accents. Look forward to seeing what you all come up with too x

Jackie

I've made a picture, for my friend who recently moved to "the seaside". She loves it there, so I hope she loves this too! I used watercolours, and a free stamp set from creative stamping.

Lin
I have used a Pink Ink Designs stamp for my 'Summer' card. These lovely old camper vans remind me of summer holidays. Please see my blog for details.

Dr. Monika
 Hello lovelies, Today I am sharing my Mixed Media Art Page, inspired with our challenge theme "Here Comes Summer". I have used lovely shades of Lindy's Stamp Gang -magical shakers along with mixed media supplies from Prima Marketing Inc, Finnabair and sentiment from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology.

I hope you will love it..I invite you all to read my blog, for an easy and quick step by step tutorial. xoxoxo

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with! Don't forget this is our last challenge until 19th August. Happy Holidays everyone.
