Crafty Creations Challenge #344

Hello Everyone,
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges.

The sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and their selection of digital images is awesome and the winner of the challenge will receive 4 single digi images

This challenge will run until July 4th, so you have time to get a project made and submitted.

I decided to use a cute image - Birthday Troll

Since I was using the Birthday Troll, 
I decided to add the Balloon Topper for an additional party look and 
to add more fun and celebration to the look 
I used an embossing folder to add fireworks to the added panel behind the Birthday Troll

Next, I added the sentiment and some glitter to finish this card off.

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #60

Hello and welcome back to my blog

Today is the beginning of a new challenge over at Lil Patch of CraftyFriends.

My card today is using  a digital image from Miss Daisy Stamps and I'm using Autumn Wagon.

I know here in the US we are just experiencing summer but you know, time flies and the next season is autumn. {LOL} And it will be here before we know it.

This image is so cool, if you love pumpkins and/or sunflowers, then this could be one of your fave's. It comes with a few sentiments too.

I added a fence and some grass to finish this off.

Turn Over a New Leaf

Hello everyone,

Not sure if you know this but over at Craft-Dee BowZ, all the designers take a turn posting on a Tuesday.  I am scheduled for the 1st Tuesday of each month and that's today.

I don't know about you but I keep seeing cards made with Patchwork dies over on Pinterest and I love this look. I did some digging and the company that offers these dies is in the Netherlands and out of 8 different die sets they have offered in the past, they only have 3 styles left to buy. Since they are on sale I have to assume once they are gone - they are gone for good. (Bummer) So with that in mind, I ordered the 3 styles that are left to get.

So while I wait for these dies to arrive (from the Netherlands so that will take a little while) I just used some circle dies and kind of made my own design

Here is what I came up with.

I added a flower and a butterfly die cut as accents and that is how this card came together.
I just love this patchwork look.

As an accent, I made a smaller triple loop bow using a dotted swiss ribbon.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes it so easy to make your bows the size you need for your cards.

BTW please don't forget that the CDB June Challenge is under way. 
The sponsor this month is Cute As A Button 
and the winner will receive a prize of 3 single digi images of the winners choice

You have time to get your project made and submitted -
 the challenge runs all month.

You could be the June winner. 
The theme is always the same - Anything Goes with a handmade bow.

Ink: Memento - Danube Blue
Dies/Punch Used: Memory Box - Glorious Greber Daisies
