A Day For Daisies: Frame Challenge 9-11-15

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies!  For our new challenge, we are showcasing Frames!

For my Design Team inspiration, I chose one of the new release stamps called,  “Fairy Flower Bouquet Portrait.”  I colored the image with Copic Markers in deep violets and bright greens.

For the frame, I used a die cutting trick of using two dies taped together thereby creating a frame of whatever shape you choose. I then inlayed another piece of the Lawn Fawn pattern paper to add a little more background.  My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  I finished off with some silver metallic thread and white gel pen.

I sure hope you’ll stop by and see all the other designers cards showing their “Frame” creations.  The challenge will run through Thursday, September 24th at Noon.  See you at A Day For Daisies Blog!

We’d also love for you to visit our Facebook Community Page as we’d love to see your cards there too!

Brown Sugar Challenge #163 Make an Easel Card!

It’s Friday! Woohoo!  That means it’s time for a new challenge at Brown Sugar Challenges and today, we are making Easel Cards!  I have to say I love the look of easel cards, but honestly, never made one before.  So, I did what all good crafters do and searched YouTube.  I found a great tutorial at Split Coast Stampers that I pinned on my Pinterest Page so if you need help, check that out.

This weeks challenge is sponsored by Morgan’s Artworld who is offering 3 digital images for our random winners choice.  You have until Thursday September 17th to enter.

For my card today, I’ve used “Fairy Wishes” to showcase my “Easel” card.  I colored this sweet fairy with Copic Markers and used a My Favorite Things circle die and Lifestyle Crafts Scalloped die to frame her.  The paper pad is Basic Grey’s KneeHigh collection and the card is held open with cloud dies also from My Favorite Things.
