Stamping Dragons Card Challenge - Is Anything but a Card

Well I'm back with another project for Stamping Dragon Designs and this week's challenge was anything but a Card? With Halloween around the corner I decided to make a Trick or Treat Bag. I so I used my Cricut machine  to cut out the bag using the cartridge called Tags, Bags, Boxes & more. I started off using Chocolate Chip paper that was 12"x 12" and used the real dial which was on and cut at 6 1/4". I then used Basic Grey collection called "Indian Summer" for the rest of my papers.I then wrapped a black netting around that I found at Michael's and then laid on top of that an orange glitter netting again I found at Michael's. I printed out the image called "Pup in Pumpkin"onto shimmery white paper in 2 different sizes. I colored the cute little puppy using my Prismacolor pencils. I then cut him out using scissors and then attached him to a rosette that I made using Tim Holtz's rosette die.To make the handles, I cut out 1" strips of Chocolate Chip paper which I laid down on top of some crochet lace and then used Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon in the middle and on the other side laid some orange satin ribbon down the middle. I attached the handles using orange rhinestone brads.
Here are some pictures of the other sides of the treat bag full of candy. Too bad my son doesn't go out Halloweening anymore, not that this bag would hold much candy.

Side 2 - I used a tag from the Happy Haunting by Graphic 45


Side 3 - I cut out a Spellbinders 'Jack O'Lantern' die and then attached it to double side adhesive and then used orange and black glitter to colored the eyes and mouth.


















Side 4 - I made a tag using the smaller image of the Pup in Pumpkin by using the Nested Pumpkins by Spellbinders using orange metallic paper.Pin It Now!

DDC #32 - How Do You Fold

 Well I'm back with another card for Digi Darla's and this week's theme is "How Do You Fold". I saw this video by Dawn Griffith
http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2012/05/fancy-fold-albumcard-video.html

I cut a piece of Bo Bunny 'Forever Fall' paper 11"X 11". I folded the paper corner to corner so you end up with a large triangle. As you line the paper  up the long side will lie vertical on the score-it board, the point will face right and you will score at 4 1/2". Then you will line the paper up so the long side will lie horizontal and score 5 1/4" and 9 3/4". Then you flip the paper over and score at 3" at each end. These 2 ends are pushed forward to create a diamond fold. I cut 2 pieces (2 1/2" x 4 1/2"left side) of Bo Bunny red double dot and cut another 2 pieces (2"x 4") for the right side. I just used both sides of the Bo Bunny paper for the sides. I then cut a piece of Brown Bo Bunny dot paper for the centre which is 4"x 4 1/2" and 2 - 2" squares for diamond fold. I printed "Life is like a Piano", Sunny Bouquet and the Happy Birthday all from Digi Darla's onto shimmery white paper. I colored the Sunflowers using Prismacolor pencils and added bronze glitter for the centre. I  added some colour to Life is like a Piano using Prismacolor pencils and pumpkin Smooch ink along the edge. With the Happy Birthday I added some Tangerine and Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk to tone down the white paper. I too added some Pumpkin Smooch ink to edge.

Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Inspired by a Photo



october 2ndI'm back with another card challenge for Loves Rubberstamps. This week's challenge is base on this photo which uses different fall words and different colors. I started off using copper metallic paper which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I again went back to S.E. I collection called Homestead 'Weeping Willow' for the first layer. The second layer I used Bo Bunny 'Fall Nature' and for the third layer I used leaf background that was in my stash. I then took a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Collection ColorCore Cardstock by Core'dinations and ran it thru a Cuttlebug folder called 'Autumn Words' and used a Tim Holtz Diffuser Circle on top so it left me a circle with no words on so I can place my image. I used the Urn stamp from the set called 'A Season of Thanks' by Flourishes. I stamped the image using black crafter's ink & colored this image using Prismacolor pencils. I then cut it out using Spellbinders 'Lacey Circles' and sponged the following colours; Tangerine and Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk to tone down the white. I then outline the edge by using Pumpkin and Molasses Smooch ink by Clearsnap as shown. I added some copper flourish ribbon by Michael's in the corners. I made a Chocolate Chip satin ribbon bow and added a maple leaf button tying orange thread in the middle. I place this top of the bow.Pin It Now!

The October Challenge is based on a sketch.












 So here is my card, I used dark blue metallic paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size.

I colored her using Prismacolor pencils and added some pearls in the centre of all the flowers. I cut out the largest pennant using Spellbinders 'Lacey Pennant' using white pine boughs from the collection. I then cut out the largest pennant using Spellbinders 'Nested Pennants' using light blue metallic paper and ran it thru Stampin'Up embossing folder called 'Square Lattice'. I sponged the edges using blue iris Fluid Chalk. I then cut out another pennant using white stripe metallic paper and the second largest pennant by Spellbinders 'Lacey Pennant'. I then cut out 2 scallops using Stampin'Up 'Tasteful Trim' using light blue metallic and light blue glitter paper and added this to base of the design.
