Time to join the team & see what they've all been up to for this week's challenge....

Merja - I've used Dinosaur Egg Hatchlings digi stamp and coloured it with alcohol markers. I created a big egg to background using Stick & Bones Textured Papers 3 set and white cardboard. I also added some brown ink to create some 3D effect. I cut the front part in half, so when you open the upper part of egg, you reveal the sentiment and gift card inside. Sentiment is stamped with Sentimentals stamp set. I love how this turned out ❤️


Jane - I've used the clear stamp set Having A Giraffe, which is an absolute beauty and contains lots of lovely little accent stamps as well as the two main giraffe images. It also has the perfect sentiment for a flap! I printed out the giraffe pattern paper from Sticks & Bones Textured Animal Print Papers and created a tall slimline card.  



Nelly: This card is using the cat stamp in the sweet-birthday-stamp set the cats were coloured using alcohol markers. It has got a secret flap on the front which opens to reveal a fabulous birthday message. the design papers are called birthday-fun-6-x-6-paper-pack don't those kitty's look super cute!!



Ruth:   I've used Fuzzpea as my animal (I know, stretching it a little but I already had it printed in my stash!) and coloured with Promarkers and a touch of sparkly glitter on her horns.  I've used the pink gingham paper from Butterfly Daisy 6x6 papers - sticking them on the reverse of the aperture I've made.  Sentiment stamp is from Perfect Wishes clear acrylic stamp set.  A bit of doodling with a black fineliner pen and my card is complete!




NunziaBella Bear Daisy is a too cute digital stamp and it is a real pleasure to color it. This time I decided, for coloring, to use my pencils and I wanted to accompany the image with a wish taken from Winnie Celebrations 3 digi kit.



Michelle: Have an extraordinary day!  How cute is Earlie Hedgehog Fuzzypuff with her balloon!  I used the pre-coloured image for this card and paired it with the pink dotted paper from the Helga Hippo Paper Heaven 3 pack and it was a perfect match for Earlie! The sentiment is from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiments Bundle.  I added a touch of glitz with some gold foil on the balloon and a bow to help keep the card closed via the flap on it..  


Pam: I've made today's card using Winston Goes Fishing from the Winston Bear Collection and the Checkered matting from the Winnie Celebration 2 - Papers 1 Digi.  I've added two interactive flaps on the card today, when opened shows schools of fish swimming by.  The card is completed with a net-tied twine with an added fish hook charm to bring this fisherman a little extra luck!



Gloria: I edited the Honey Pie digital stamp and Honey Pie Bouquet digital stamp into similar sizes, printed them, and coloured them with Copic markers and colour pencils. Then, I did die cut the images into a square. And I used put the background paper on both sides behind the cover image. I made a flap by sandwiching paper between the background paper and the bouquet image. The sentiment is from Winnie Special moments 1 bundle.


Great projects everyone!

 AnnieFor my project I have made a slim line shaker card. I have three layers using designer/digital papers by Polkadoodles. I have used a fabulous free template for the slim line card which can be downloaded here. I used the Digi Winnie Sunshine Delights paper pack, I printed my papers onto matte photo paper, this gives a lovely result and enhances the colours. I fussy cut the Bella Bear Milkshake and Bella Bear Ladybug digital stamps and coloured them with copics!



Janet - I've used Octavia, called Thinking, for my slimline card this time. I've coloured her with Copic pens. The background papers are from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles paper heaven 5 and Winnie Special moments paper heaven 2. I love lots of layers on my cards.


Judy: I have created a slimline card using Helga Hippo Pretty in Pink Download.
I colored with Prismacolor Pencils. The background paper is from Helga Hippo paper Heaven 1 Download. I have added a butterfly from Helga Hippo Embellies Download. My sentiment is from Rose Budd Craft Download.



Ana: This week I made this cute slimline card. For this card I used digital stamp Honeypie CutiepieI colored the stamp with Promarkers. For the background I used Cloud landscape craft stencil and blended with Distress Ink. Also, I cut five circles, colored them with Distress Inks and made a rainbow.  I used sentiment "Follow your dreams" from Sparkle unicorn digital download bundle. The little hearts are from Donuts about you stamp set. Also, I wrote the worlds  "dreams" on the signpost which is from Mini Winnie Let's Go Clear Stamps & Co-Ordinating Dies.


Kim-Today for my slimline card I used Meribelle Mermaid Swishy Tail which I colored with my copics this was really fun. The background papers are from Mermazing Mermaid Printable papers which makes it so easy to coordinate. The I added the sentiment which came from Winnie Celebrations 3 Sentiments.

WK 17 Craft and Card making challenge

THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST

Have you seen our latest releases in store? 
Make sure you check them out, we have some great offers so don't miss them all!

Time to join the team & see what they've all been up to for this week's challenge....

Nelly This weeks card is made using Rocco special moments and love and kisses stamp set timeless rose collection  for the background I used  feathers wings 6x6 stencil.


Jane - I've used Holly Butterfly for my card and she's absolutely gorgeous! I coloured her up using pastel shades and then die cut her using the Ovals die.  The greeting is from Everlasting SentimentsNext I created a background paper using distress inks and the Pretty Butterfly stencil. I also inked through a couple of extra butterflies from the stencil and hand cut them. These I glammed up with iridescent gems and added to the side of the oval die cut. 


 

Merja - At this card I used adorable Sunshine Delight Cheeky image and coloured it with alcohol markers. Then I cut it with Posydoodles Ractangles dies. Background paper is from Winnie Fruit Paper Heaven 2 bundle and text from Winnie Celebrations 2 sentiments kit. I wanted to keep this simple, because I love that butterfly paper ❤️


Ruth:  I've gone for clean and simple card, using some really glittery (but old as the glitter was a bit loose) gold card cut using one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Trio die.  To hide the missing glitter and the fact that it was virtually luminous, I cut three vellum layers and added some AB tiny gemstones to the body (the vellum wasn't stuck down properly when I took the photo so its a bit wonky!)  The little butterflies - Dotted Wings Butterfly - have been cut from better quality white glitter card.  The sentiment is from the Sentimentals 6x6 Paper Pack and it and the layer beneath have been cut with the Squarey Swirly Hearts Die 


Melissa - For today's card/inspiration I have used the Butterfly Trio Die.  It has been coloured with Copic Various Ink (Alcohol Ink) and mounted onto white card.  This was then mounted onto an ink splatted background.  The sentiment is from the Spring Wishes stamp set.


Pam ~ Today I'm showcasing Winston Bear Gardening for our Butterfly challenge. I've colored this sweet image with my Copic markers and used digital papers from the Work Play 10 collection and Winnie Collection 2 for the background. I've added the sentiment from the  Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiment package and finished with a fun coordinating carrot ribbon.  





Nunzia: How much we are happy when we find the Soul Mate. So I wanted to dedicate this card to couple’s engagement using the Tandem ride Winnie. I surrounded it with two layers of patterned papers from Spring Surprise paper pad and added and framed the sentiment chosen among Winnie celebrations 3 and Tags frames 60 Winnie White Christmas. Then I borrowed the butterflies from Bella-bear-daisy to complete the scene.


Michelle:   I wanted to keep my butterfly inspiration card more on the CAS side and keep it all in the same colour family, so to start I did a bit of ink blending to kind of frame this darling girl and the butterflies.  I absolutely adore this sweet Winnie Sunshine Delight Cheeky pre-coloured image that I used and I wanted to have the individual butterflies fluttering away from her, so I cut them out and added them to my ink blended background but only glued them in the middle to give them dimension and make it appear as if they were flying off the card.  I added the pink plaid layer from the Winnie Sunshine Delights 6x6 Paper Pack 2 and the sentiment is from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiments Bundle.  To finish it off I added some glitter to the butterflies, but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo.  I love how everything in the collections co-ordinate so nicely together!

Judy: I have created a slimline card, which has become my favorite design styles,
with an inked background done using a water color technique with Sparkle Pens.
The focal image used is Winnie Mermaid Mermazing - Passing Time, colored with pencils. The sentiment is from Winnie Mermazing Mermaid Quotes Download.
I added some die cuts and glitter dots for embellishment.


AnaOne of my favorite types of card are pop-up box cards. This week I made one pop-up box card with irresistible digital stamp Honeypie Best Friend HugsThe image is colored with Promarkers. For the base of this card I used white cardstock and some papers from Vintage Candy paper pack and one digital paper from Winnie Celebrations 3 paper collection.  The sentiment is from  Lily Bug Love Quotes Bundle kit.




Janet- I've used one of my favourite from the Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles called Float away. I've coloured this with Copics. The background papers are from Winnie Special Moments paper heaven 4. The sentiment s from Winnie Celebrations 3. Then added some embellishments from my stash.




Kim - I have used one of my favorite stamps on this card. I just think she is the sweetest. Lil Miss Sugarpops USA 4th of July.  I colored her up with my copics and just used basic cardstock as this is always a favorite go to when in a hurry. 



Annie:  My card technique is basically a bit of mixed media using the following available in store. I used Distressd Oxides and smooshed them over the background page from my crafting mat. I then added a few Nuvo crystal drops. Distressed Crayons were sponged over the page using water and a sponge to give a smooth effect. Dylusion ink sprays were then sprayed over the page allowing to dry before completing my page. Super red sticky tape was used to adhere the image onto the mixed media page. Helga Heaven 2 paper pack was used to cut my background die with Twiggy and Boots Collection Pack, which were used for a few fussy cut elements. Winnie Sunshine Delight Happy Days is the main image I used and coloured with a combo of copic markers and pencils. Glossy Accents was lightly added to the finished page over some of the stencil.
