Challenge #254 - Crafty Gals Corner #254

Hello, fellow crafters! First off, I have to apologize to those of you who follow me. I'm late in posting, and I'm so very sorry! I've been sick, and then there was a death in the family, and I just plain got behind on things. Thank you for your understanding! So on with the "show"! 

 Here at Crafty Gals Corner, the theme for this month is:

~ Anything Goes ~

 Our wonderful and very generous sponsors for this challenge are:

Colour of Love
Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

A note from Rachelle Anne Miller:
I am an artist & designer living in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia with my husband and three amazing children! I love to create and am especially drawn to all things cute. I've worked on children's books, greeting cards, craft supplies, children's room decor, tech accessories, and more. I love to bring out joy and imagination in my art and create something a little different to inspire and make you smile.

Colour of Love

Isn't she a real cutie?? I had a lot of fun with her....wait....I always say that! Lol! But I really do mean it! I just love digital images!

I used a set of markers that are new to me. They weren't expensive like some brands. These are called "ArtSkills Blendable Markers". They are really good!

So of course I started by printing the image, then colored it with the new markers. I mounted her on Creative Memories papers. Then I simply added a little decoration to it, and she was done! Simple, and yet I think she came out pretty good. 

I sure hope that you will join us for this awesome challenge! Anything Goes is a wide open crafty space full of ideas!

Thank you for stopping by,

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

I love the the fact that we can do anything for this project. So as I sat and pondered about it, what did I do? Ummm...another card! 😂 Here is my card:

Pattie's Creations

As you can see, it wasn't the regular card I normally do. I'm not sure, but I think it's called a 3 panel trifold card. Anyway, it was very fun to do! 

There are a lot of tutorials out there to show how I made my catd (that's how I got it 😂). I did a lot of layering and I used a small heart punch to make the shamrocks. Also, I used my new set of markers by Artskills. I must tell you...they are GOOD markers! I love them!

I hope you will join us in this month's challenge! We love seeing the diversity of cards!

Have a blessed day!

I went with my usual TriBlend Markers (LOVE them), and be tween the image and the designer paper, I used an acetate sheet with stars all over. And then of course, I matted it.

Prize ~ 2 Digital Images

Prize ~ 3 Sets of Digis

Here is my card:

Here I'm using the Three Wise Men from Doctor Digi. I wasn't sure about the colors at first, but I thought they came out really good. 

For this challenge, I used my TriBlend markers, and the my white color pencil for the highlights. I then mounted it on some design paper and added to my white base. I added some rhinestones on top for the stars. 

It's really a basic card, but the colors give it the wow factor it needed. 

I do hope you join us for our last challenge of the year! And Merry Christmas! See you next year!

Crafty Gals Corner #249 - Dots or Stripes

 Hello, fellow crafter! We have a new challenge for this month. But before I go on with that, I have a question. IS THIS YEAR ALMOST OVER ALREADY?? REALLY?? I feel like it just began! So much has happened in my life, that makes this year a whirlwind year. Anyway, on to the project! 

For this month, the theme for this challenge is: 

~ Dots and/or Stripes ~

 Our sponsors for this challenge are: 
(listed in alphabetical order)

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certifcate

* * * * * * * * * *

Prize:  2 digis, 1 pad of digital papers "mini"
and the possibility of being Special Guest DT

I really love the image I got for this month. First, my image:

This little cutie is called Peppermint Mice from Jan's Digi Stamp Shop. First, I took some cardstock and used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to print and cut the image, along with the sentiment. I used my TriColor Markers. I tried to use an off-brand, but it just wouldn't work. So I started over again. 

Once I was done, I cut out more cardstock as a base for the card and used black mica paper from the Paper Temptress shop to use for the layer under the image. These mica/metallic papers are gorgeous! Pictures don't do them justice. 

All I had to do next was to add the image and put some embellished "pearls" on as my dots. Finished!

I hope you will join us for this challenge. Thank you for stopping by!
Many Blessings,
Jeanie Ellis, Scrapbookingmamaw
