  DT: Celebrate

Pin It
Dear scrappers,
This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you another card that I made using the digital image, Pirate Shy from this month's sponsor:

I used supplies from the Hero monthly die/stamps club (inks, stencils, the vellum, and specialty paper) and CTMH papers and inks. I also used some Stamping Up inks.

The stickers are also from CTMH. I used a leftover cardstock, which I had treated using TH solutions to create a faux patina effect and metallic inks. The palm trees were fuzzy cut and the little pirate was colored with watercolor pencils and CTMH blending pen.

For the inside, I used also an sticker sentiment from CTMH.

I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join us in this month's challenge:

  Question of the Week

Pin It

It's that time again!!
Remember.. I want you to answer the question
 in the comment section too!
if you have a question to ask for an upcoming week add that in the comments too, if you ask a question and I use it you will win a prize!!

Here is today's question!!
Do you ever sketch a layout or card before starting?

Angela-I don't...not for any reason other than I'm too lazy for the extra work !

Veronica-I used to sketch my layouts a while ago, but now, my thoughts runs so much quicker than my sketch pad 😂, so I just try to play catch up and let it be what I becomes... 
Marji-Never. I have a really hard time following a sketch. I just lay things out before gluing until I get the look I like. 

Kim- Never. My cards are always an evolution...rarely do they end up being what I had initially pictured in my mind's eye.

Sue-No, I just get to work.

Connie-Actually I have. Many times. It really helps me decide what I am going to create. Especially with my layouts..

Got a question for us...don't be shy, ask us!!

Also, don't forget to enter Connie's Monthly Challenge!!

  Flyin' By

Hello everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.  Today, for my Connie Can Crop design team post, I'm using a digital image by our sponsor this month, Sasayaki Glitter.

This particular image is named Shy in the Sky, and he sure is a cutie.  I opted to use a Z-fold card to showcase him.

To begin, I brought the image into my Silhouette design screen; sized and reversed it.  I traced it, turning it into a print and cut.  The propeller was cut a second time, so I could pop it for added dimension.  I colored him with Copic markers and added a bit of bling by Eyelet Outlet; an Enamel Dot on the propeller and Round Jewels on the wing, darkening them both a bit to match the card stock.  Here's a closer look at him:

The card base and band was cut from Night of Navy card stock, starting with the Pop Up Box Card cut file by Lori Whitlock.  I used the Carried Away Designer Series Paper as the perfect backdrop for this high-flyin' pilot.  For the band, I took the traced outline from the image and welded it for additional support for the image.  The inserts were included with the cut file.

I created a little banner to attached to the back of the plane and the remainder of the sentiment appears when you open the card.

And here's a final look down from the top so you can see how the inserts are placed in the center square.

Before I leave you, I want to remind you about Connie Can Crop's monthly challenge.  This month, the theme is, "It's a Guy Thing".  You can make any sort of a project you want so long as it follows the theme.  One winner, picked at random,  will receive a prize from our sponsor. 

The team will also pick their three favorites...those selected will receive a badge for their blog or social bragging rights!  If you'd like to link up to the challenge or obtain additional details regarding the challenge, just click here.

  YouTube Tuesday-Masculine Card Idea

Pin It
Hi everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with another YouTube video.  I decided to share a video that ties into our monthly challenge, "It's a Guy Thing".

This video uses a nautical image, which is so popular these days.  If you don't have this stamp, there are so many others available, so check your stash to see what you've got!

This video shares so many ideas;  the twisted easel technique, using your dies as stencils, using a stamp positioner, creating a next size label and how to make a nautical, Josephine knot.

I hope you enjoy this video and try this technique...again or for the first time.

And if you make a masculine card, please be sure to enter it in our monthly challenge.  If you'd like to link-up or obtain more information, just click here.

One winner, picked at random, will win a prize from our sponsor, Sasayaki Glitter.

The team will also pick our favorite three who will receive a badge for their blog or social media, plus bragging rights.
