Bunny Wagon – Di’s Digi Stamps

Hello, all you happy Stampers out there!

I am here today sharing a card for a Challenge at The Outlawz. I am so excited to show you my card/entry.

The challenge that I entered was a progressive challenge.

Not know what a progressive challenge is? That is ok, I will explain.

You enter the challenge and you will either have to purchase your first digi stamp or they will provide you with one. In this case, they provided me with a stamp for free. You use the digi stamp in a creation of your own, such as a card or scrapbook page.

You will then add your photo to your blog (like I am doing here) or to any social media and also to the challenge site (you can find challenge blogs all over the internet and even on Facebook).

After the entry has closed and you have uploaded your image before the close date, they will provide you with another image to use for free! Exciting right?!?!? I love them and getting to see how everyone else used the same image.

The image I was provided with was from Di’s Digi Stamps (https://www.disdigistamps.com/) <== Link to Di’s Digi Stamp store

Have a Norse Day |

As I was perusing through some other blogs, I came across this amazing article on the MFT (My Favorite Things) blog. I have provided a link at the very bottom of this post to the original post 🙂 I love how much detail was put on  each card. Needless to say, these are going in my CASE file.

 

Shadow Box Card Directions:

  • Trim 2 pieces of card stock to 5″ x 8 1/4″.
  • Score these pieces on the long side at 1 1/4″ & 7″.
  • Cut an open window in one of the pieces (I used the A2 Rectangle Stax and added a frame from the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames.)
  • Adhere these two pieces together on one side where the side flaps will overlap (this will be the frame of your box.)
  • For the inside strips, cut 3 pieces of card stock to 6 3/8″ long at varying heights to add dimension (I used heights of 1 1/2″, 2″, and 2 1/2″).
  • Score each piece at 3/8″ & 6″.
  • After you are done scoring, you can die cut these pieces with whatever border dies (if any) that you want to use. I used the Grassy Hills Die-namics.

For my final card, I created a fun little Valentine-themed card. I made my card 5″ square and added some square layering panels using Cement Gray and Smooth White Card Stock. I also added a red &amp; white striped patterned paper panel from the Birthday Blowout Paper Pack. I die cut a few fishtail banners using the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX with Wild Cherry Card Stock and vellum

 

.

In the center of my card, I added a stitched white heart using the Stitched Heart STAX. I placed my stamped, cut, and colored Viking on top of the heart with some foam adhesive squares. For my sentiment, I used the newly released From The Heart stamp set. I heat embossed my sentiment onto black cardstock with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and then used one of the dies from the Hearts In A Row – Vertical Die-namics to cut it out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Viking #1:  Skin: E50, E51, E21, E11, Beard: E42, E08, E09, E18, Coat: E21, E23, E27, E29, Shirt: BG11, BG32, BG 49, Pants: N3, N5, N8, Boots: E81, E84, E87, Ax: C1, C3, C5, C7
  • Viking #2:  Skin: E50, E21, E13, Beard: E13, E39, E19, E49, Coat: E40, E41, E43, Shirt: G20, YG25, G17, G28, Pants: E23, E25, E29, Boots: N3, N5, N8, Ax: C0, C2, C5
  • Viking #3:  Skin: E50, E21, E13, Beard: E50, E53, E55, E57, Coat: E13, E39, E19, E49, Shirt: R14, R46, R59, Pants: E40, E43, E44, Boots: E13, E39, E19, E49, Ax: C1, C3, C5

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of sharing these with you today!  I’ll be back at the end of the month to share one more post with you. Have a wonderful day and have fun creating!

Happy Hello

Today’s card is a happy hello. The image is from Craftin’ Desert Divas. I had so much fun creating this card.

CDD happy hello 1
I colored the image with Copic markers 3 separate times. Then fussy cut the elephants head and bird out.

I also cut out the purple balloon from the rest of the image and then I cut out the red balloon and yellow balloon but kept them connected.

I used foam tape and mounted the cut images over the full image to create the card front.
