ATSM Challenge 69

Hi Everybody,

how time flies, it’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #69 – Addicted to CAS!!!

I know you’ll love this one …

For this week’s DT piece I have used another catty image from our sponsor Nicecrane Designs. It is one from the Funny Cats by Thiele DSL Collection with some really adorable images for some fun cards.

Here it is, my DT piece for this week:

joyful cats

I just love this adorable joyful image, these cats just seem to want to dance off the page. There is so much movement in this image, one doesn’t need to add anything … and I normally love playing with rounded corners or embossing for CAS cards. This time I felt anything else would detract rather than add.

This is a very quick card, I simple printed the image out, cut it to size, coloured it using my promarkers, stamped my sentiment and mat & layered as shown.

Hope that you feel inspired to enter this week’s ‘Addicted to CAS’ challenge at ATSM, please pop over and see all the other creations of the fabulous ATSM DT Team. You can also get a freebie to work with by following this link Nicerane Designs Freebie.

ATSM Challenge 67

Hi Everybody,

how time flies, it’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #67 – Make your Mark!!!

I know you all love colouring in and generally using your markers. I don’t know about you, but I would struggle to survive without them.

Again, our sponsor this week is ….  Nicecrane Designs,

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to spend at their online store. Pop over to the shop and have a look what fabulous images $20 can buy you …

For this week’s DT piece I have used another image from the Fascinating Bessie Gutmann CS set, you ma remember the little girl on the floating leaf ….

Here it is, my DT piece for this week:

Rain

… not that it is raining here at the moment, but it is very cold …

I used some Spectrum Noir markers to add some yellow to the girl’s dress and some shading to the panelling. I also highlighted the ‘rain’ by adding a touch of blue using a watercolour pencil. The red and pink touches were already in the image. I stamped and fuzzy cut the umbrella and cut a little slot with my craft knife ready for layering. I then just added some stamped leaves to the image itself and as a border to some Designer Paper before stamping the sentiments and layering as shown.
