52CCT April 2021 Technique Challenge

04 2021 Wk4 Technique

Hello eveyone, we are here at the last challenge for April and this means that our hostess Branka was able to choose between a Technique or Stash Challenge. And we have

Branka has asked us over on the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge to only use stamping on our cards this time around – so no commercially printed papers.

To make this card with no commercially printed papers I decided to make my own 😉 using one of my favourite digital stamps from Bugaboo called “Christmas Tree Word Art” and this stamp makes for a quick make when you use it as a single stamp. Once I printed 2 copies of this page out I went about making a card based on the technique of Triple Time Stamping. Usually you would cut your panels and then temporally stick them together and then do the stamping. I thought that this would be an opportunity to show off this one stamp and maybe show you something different to use your pre-coloured digital images.

But since I was using digital stamps I printed 2 copies of the panel that I had made and then started the cutting using a die set from Paper Rose Studio called “Stitched Rectangle Australian Sized Nesting Dies”. I used the 3rd largest and the 4th smallest dies. Then layered each rectangle onto maroon layering cardstock and stuck each layer together carefully matching up the printed design with the layer below. Then I went through the Crisp Christmas Sentiment Sheets from Paper Rose Studio and found a sentiment that looked right just sitting by itself without a separate layer.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my design team make for the 52CCT Technique Challenge for April. I hope that you will go and visit the other designers blogs and see how they made their cards and then consider coming and joining in on the fun and uploading your makes to our blog. Before you go off and do that though I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

April Technique for 52CCT

Hello everyone, here we are at the end of another set of challenges. We are up to a technique challenge over on the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. This time around the technique is

04 April technique

And if you are wanting some help with this technique here is a video for you to look at. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDlhbw7t8ww

04 Wk4 Technique

And I did another version of this technique – I wanted to show off this “Christmas Cat” digital image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. So I thought framing him with the herringbone would help for him to stand out. The sentiment I printed when I printed off the cat then I used my distress inks to give it a little colour and added some Love from Lizi Peel Offs to give it a little pop.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for the Technique Challenge over at 52CCT. I hope that you will come on over to the blog and see what the other designers have been up to and join in on the fun. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

With everything going on in the world right now … we are pretty well off in this life.

Until my next post,
🙂 Tracy

Wee One Bug

Hello everyone, another card made from one of my images that I have watercoloured but this time around I have added some details with pens afterwards.

10 06 BugBoy

This cute little image is called Wee Little Bug from Bugaboo Digital Images and is still available. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #716 

But I will also be putting this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch the Bug Challenge site.

I kept this card on the simple side because I wanted to let the watercolour image to be the main star. I had a lot of fun both colouring in the image and making up the card as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

If you want to add a little spring to your decor and love peonies as much as I do then you will love these free printable spring peony art in four quotes.

Until next time, enjoy the season you are in,

52CCT April Stash Challenge

Hello Everyone,
Today I am working with the team over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and it is week 4 of the month so we are up to our stash or technique challenge. And our hostess EK has gone with a stash challenge of

04 technique

I am sure that we have a lot of printed papers in our stash just waiting for the “perfect” card to go onto. When I read this challenge I knew the card that I wanted to make and this is what I made

52CCT 04 2019 wk4 Stash

This card is actually made from scraps. I keep all of the large scraps from cutting 6X6 papers down to make cards and I use them to make cards like this. This quilt die really helps me to use up every scrap that I have and this way I get to showcase many different holiday papers.

Thanks for stopping in to look at my design team work for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. I hope that you will come over and play along with our latest challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought.

Purple Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone,
I was able to make a 2nd card for the Stella Says Sketch Challenge but it is also suitable for the Shopping Our Stash Challenge – Fabulous February celebrating everything about February which includes it having Violets and Amethyst all Purple things 🙂

If you have been a visitor of my blog for a while you will know that I love working with sketches. But you may not also realise that I also love Purple as well so this challenge came in perfectly. So this is the card I came up with when I combined the challenges.

Another image that I have had sitting in my container waiting for a card to be right for it. The colouring of the image drove the colour choice that I went with. I had this pack of 1 colour plus white details sitting in my paper pad stash. And this is the sketch from Stella

Stella Says 704

This time the whole card has gone portrait instead of landscape but everything was driven by the digi image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. I used a birthday embossing folder for the top part of the sketch just to give a little interest to this area.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I really appreciate the visits, likes and comments that I receive on my blog posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

So true

Until Next Time,
Tracy B
