Lavinia World Challenge #18

Hello Lavinia World Friends!!


Today is the start of a new challenge on the Lavinia World Challenge Blog:





Ingredients:

White card stock
Watercolor paper
Neenah Solar White paper
Black ink
Sheer Shimmer
Gems

For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the distress inks and my blending brushes and blended the inks onto the paper.  I spritzed it with water and dried it with my heat tool.  I then took some Black ink and the Flower Fairy stamp and stamped her onto the paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Brave and Beloved stamp and added the paper to the card base.  I took a piece of watercolor paper and the Tutti Designs Maple Vine Frame die and cut out the frame and added that on top of the card.  I then took some gems and added them to the flowers.  I took some Sheer Shimmer onto the card.

The theme for Lavinia World Challenges is always "Anything Goes" using a stamped image (sorry no digi stamps, but rather rubber or clear stamps are perfect).  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to Lavinia World.


Now hop on over to the Lavinia World Challenge Blog to see what the talented Design Team have created for this challenge!

Scrapy Land Challenge #130


Hello Blogging Friends!!


Today is the start of a new challenge on the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog ~ Scrapy Land Challenge #130


Here is my card:



Ingredients:

White card stock
Valentine paper
Pink paper
Hot pink paper
Picked Raspberry distress ink

For this A2 card I started with White card stock to make the base of the card.  I took a piece of Valentine paper, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and added that to the base of the card.  I took the Cheapo Dies Heart Doily die and some pink paper and hot pink paper and cut the die out in each color.  I added the Pink Heart Doily die cut to the card.  I took the Hot Pink Heart Doily die cut and I took out the pieces and inlaid them into the Pink Heart Doily on the card.  This is a real quick and easy Valentine's Day card to make!

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.

Please link back to this Scrapy Land Challenge and include the link to this challenge on your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.  (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)


Be sure to hop on over to the Scrapy Land Challenge #130 and see what the Design Team have made to inspire you!

Now it is your turn to create something for this challenge!  You have until  to join in on the Scrapy Land Challenge fun and have a chance of winning a $15 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs

Hello Blogging Friends!


It is my turn today on the Dies R Us Blog and I have this fun Valentine's Day card or you could send it to someone who just needs a hug.




For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of patterned paper, inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink and added that to the base of the card. 



 I took some Pink patterned paper and the Elizabeth Lace Heart die and cut out the heart and added it to the card.  I took some leftover watercolor paper that I had blended some distress oxides on and the Cheapo Dies Butterfly die and cut out the butterfly and added it to the card.  I took the no longer available Die-Versions Curly Hugs word die and some more of the Pink patterned paper and cut out hugs and added it to the top of the card.  Instead you could use the Impression Obsession Hugs die, the Tutti Designs Hugs word dies, the Poppystamps Luscious Script hugs die or even the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs die to make this card.  I attached hugs on the card over the Lace Heart.







Thanks for stopping by!

Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #480 ~ White Space


Hello Blogging Friends,


The theme for January at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges is "Out of your Comfort Zone" and this month we want to challenge you to create layouts you may usually pass over as it may not be within your normal comfort zone.


LM #480 ~ White Space


In the scrapbooking world white space  jon a scrapbook page in not always white.  It can be any color or patterned paper.   The term white space refers to an area devoid of photos, embellishments, journaling and title.  White space provides a resting point for the eye and breathing room for the viewer taking in your photos and journaling.  This is a challenge for me because I like to use up all the space on a page!


Here is my layout:




This is a picture of my oldest daughter Julie at the park posing for a picture.  I love the look on her face in this picture.  I used paper from a Kiwi Lane Bloom paper kit and my Creative Memories big circle for the Custom Cutting System.  I used a Die-Versions font to cut out the title.  


Now hop on back over to the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful scrapbook pages the Design Team have made!  And why not join in on this fun challenge! 

Thanks for stopping by!
