I made this card for a work colleague - I've used Chopper from Dr Digi - and IT Ian who has experienced many things drop off his bike on the cycle to work! Vintage map used as well which features his start / end point. Funnily enough, he is called Ian and does look a bit like the image (although his 'tash is not as impressive!) And I bet he has an Atari t-shirt too! He was very impressed with the card!
However the Design Team were challenged to use a Design Sheet. The Design sheets on each CD (or download) are such good value and you get sooooo much to work with! The hardest bit is trying to decide which elements to use! I've gone for Work and Play 12 - Geek Scientist - you can buy the sheet on its own or if you want more, buy the download as you get each character with its own design sheet. All I've added is some card candi, glitter glue and glossy accents!
I've simply selected the elements I wanted and cut them out before playing around with the layout and then sticking it all down with foam pads for extra depth.
Good luck with the challenge! I'd like to enter the following:
I've used a decoupage topper from La Pashe - Tinsel Tots and then added them to an embossed background - both are Cuttlebug folders - Swiss Dots and a snowflake pattern. The silver twine is from my stash and I've handwritten the sentiment onto a Sizzix scalloped tag die cut.
The sentiment has been cut with Sizzix sentiments die and I've recycled a tissue box to cut it from. To finish, glitter glue has been added around the edge of the card.
Good luck with the challenge! For more details and how to enter, pop over to Crimbo Crackers
I was asked to make a 40th Birthday card for a male and to include some specifics including sky diving, photography, army and motorbikes ........
So, I've used 'snapshots' of various Dr Digi images - Corporal Clegg - A Dunderton Abroad for the camera and Harley Claus, each image has been coloured with Promarkers and watercolour pencils and I've used some plain blue card I found in my stash (templates are my own for the large numbers) and added some ink daubs and Memory Box die cut clouds.
The Happy Birthday die cuts are from Clearly Besotted - I've cut a few and layered them up.
The Design Team were challenged to use die cuts. I've used the beautiful Bubbleicious Die - the initial die cut is from a paper from Belle Papillon Collection and then inlaid it with another die cut using kraft card, adding half pearls to the 'bubbles'. The oval die was used to add to the centre. Butterfly is also from the Belle Papillon Collection which I've carefully cut out and then added the antenna as a die cut from a Memory Box die.
I've lightly distressed the edges of the paper and added it to an acetate card blank. The butterfly, for extra dimension has had its wings curled slightly.
Ok, so January is all about eating well and not being naughty however this Sundae from Dr is totally calorie free! And even better, this one is the coloured version - I've added some sprinkles (seed beads) and layered it onto a panel recycled from a Graze box (had to be creative with the positioning due to text on the panel!) and then added to a scalloped card blank that I found in my stash when having a 'tidy'.
Liquid pearl dotted edges made with Docrafts liquid pearls - they are thicker dots than Ranger; half pearls from stash.
There is nothing better than a good soak in the bath! And here is Bath Time Deirdery from Dr Digi. I've coloured her with Promarkers, sentiment has been cut with Clearly Besotted dies and the numbers are Sizzix Round-a-Bout.
All papers are from my stash and I've made the floorboards myself.
Happy 2017! We all know a grumpy old man and why not tell them so?! Card is made with one of the sentiments from Dr Digi's Grumpy Sentiments Sheet; I've enlarged it and added some die cut X Cut stars from different silver card - the holographic one used to be a tissue box.
