DS4J Challenge #90 Easter or Spring

Morning Peeps!  It's Wednesday and time for the mid-challenge at DS4J.  This challenge is hosted by Alex.  You have until the 29th to enter this challenge.  It is an easy one for this time of year - Easter or Spring.  I chose to do Easter and use this image called The Empty Cross.  You can find this and a lot of other digis at the online store here.


I used another panel that I had embossed some time ago.  I used Antique Linen distress ink to rub over the embossed parts. The image is colored with Copics.  The twine is from We Are Memory Keepers.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Say It With Words #2

Here is the second card made from the Bo Bunny 6x6 Camp-a-Lot Collection.  For details on what I am doing, see the first blog in this series.  It is labeled Say It With Words #1.

 
Again, I am entering this in Dream Valley Challenges for their Say It With Words Challenge.
 

Say It With Words #1

Say It With Words is the theme for the challenge at Dream Valley Challenges.  I have been making cards using one 6x6 paper pad from Bo Bunny.  I had purchased this pad about a year and a half ago for a special project.  I used a couple sheets and it went in the stack of pads.  The other day, I came across a blog on Operation Write  Home, by Kristie Marcotte that used one pack of 6x6 paper and made at least 25 cards.  Of course, extra paper is needed for the card bases and layering.  So far, I have made 10 cards from my pack and there is enough paper to make at least that many more.  I am going to keep at it until all the cards are done and the pack is finished.  I will post a picture of all of the cards at that time. 

Here is the first card:

 
And the pack it came from:
 
 
For the card base and layers, I used Recollections Kraft paper.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of white scrap from my stash.  I'm not sure where the stamp came from.  I've had it for a long time and don't save the packaging.
 
Stay tuned for more cards as I get them made.

DS4J Sunday Release

DigiStamps4Joy has release some new digis.  Hop on over to the online shop and see them all.  They are really great.  I chose to use Sailboat for my card.

I printed out the background paper from Scrapflair.  The blue layers are Recollections.  The boat is colored with Copics and cut with the print and cut feature on the Silhouette.  I mounted the boat with foam tape and added the sentiment by Technique Tuesday.

My First Attempt

 I finally bit the bullet,  jumped on the band wagon and made a box card.  It was not as difficult as I thought it was going to be.  I cut the image with my Cameo.  I used a piece of yellow SU cardstock for the box and added a sheet of old Bo Bunny paper that I had.  The other pieces are scraps from my scrap bin.

One Sheet Wonder Cards

Using a 12x12 sheet of dp that I would never use in a scrapbook page, I was able to cut pieces to make eight of these One Sheet Wonder cards.  That is a bit of a misnomer because you need other paper for the card bases and trims/embellishments but all of the dp is cut from one sheet.  These I cut 5.5 inches by 3 inches. There was just a little strip of paper left, but it went into the recycle bin.  I used Stampin' Up paper for the bases, Bazzill for the trim and sentiment panel.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I popped the sentiment panel with foam tape.  The sentiment panel was cut with Spellbinders/Xyron die Frame 2.  I'm going to try more of the OSW cards.  There are several examples online.  I just googled it.
