More cards from our DT and a FUN ANNOUNCEMENT!

Today I have some cards for you from our Design Team!


The one that says "happy mother's day" is the one I have redone, both digi's are by AiFactory, and there paper was form My Mind's eye.

I made a layout using the digi paper from AiFactory, and the quote is from AiFactory, I think I got them all for May.... I really enjoy using the paper.

This little birdhouse was my favorite. Thanks!


Showing us how she used two images from Aifactory selection of digital stamps. I just colored them and cut the leaves so the sign looks like it’s behind it.


I used regular Card Stock on this card, with some embossing folders from Parvo Craft and Copic markers to color in the digital image from Aifactory. This card was apart of the Scrappers Card Challenge's group on Scrappers Delight!

Also just a quick reminder to our followers and members next month is going to be really fun!! Our Sponsor Bugaboo Stamps will be giving away

More Projects:

I have wonderful projects to share with you from Andria over at: Iona-Rose Designs
She has done a lovely job putting these two project together for our Design Team at Scrappers Delight.

This is my second Design Team project for Scrappers Delight. Aprils Sponsors wer the wonderful Aifactory.
I took my inspiration for this card from the "Quote Garden" website with the following quote...

"Dancing is like dreaming with your feet"
I have distressed the edges of the papers and card to create a shabby chic feel and added pearls and roses. The mirry card I used to mount the image was purple, but I heat embossed the edges and it has blended the colour and created a holographic purple/pink feel.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and stickled part of her tutu and ribbons. I felt a sentiment on the front would be too much, so I've decorated the inside of the card and added it to the insert.
I've really enjoyed working with this image.


Card - White hammer, pink (papermill shop) and purple mirry card (create and craft).
Stamp - Aifactory (digi stamp).
Promarkers - pink carnation, blossom, dusky pink, satin, blush, cool grey1,2,3,4,5, black.
Extras - Roses (wild orchard), pearls (stash), Cotton candy stickles (Stash).
Design papers - My Minds Eye.

I am hoping my card covers the criteria for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz Challenge #17 - Girly Card with flowers.
Quixotic Challenges # 23 - How Distressing (edges of papers and cards have been roughed up with scissors).

This is for our May DT projects for Scrappers Delight, using this adorable image from the Aifactory. I just looked at the image and thought it was crying out to be used on a "New Home" card.

I don't have any sentiment stamps that are suitable for new home cards, so I hand wrote this one, it reads "Home Tweet Home".

The image was colored with my trusty promarkers and I cut it out and attatched it to the card with foam pads, adding a swirly flourish of gems to the bottom corner.

I added an embossed panel using a paisley embossing folder, to represent bird feathers swirling in the breeze. I have also highlighted some of the edges of the lemon card with lemon glitter.


Card - Lemon, White (papermill shop).
Design Papers - Basic Grey.
Promarkers - Pastel pink, coral, blossom, pink carnation, vanilla, saffron, gold, sandstone, cinnamon, lime green, pear, cool grey 1, 4 & 5(Joanna Sheen).
