happy birthday

Hello, crafty peeps! I have a special kind of project to share with you today, a card I created for the Scrapping4fun Challenges Guest Designer Challenge! Anyone who was a guest designer for Scrapping4fun Challenges this year has been invited to participate. We were allowed to choose our own theme as long as we follow this sketch:

Mojo306Sketch
I love sketches and pretty much followed this one to a ‘T’ (as I usually do) and created a pretty birthday card using five coordinating papers from the BasicGrey Marjolaine paper pad. I also used some silver foil and glitter Washi.

I used a variety of dies to achieve the elements in the sketch, along with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaf charm, and a little bit of bling.

I embellished the inside with leftover strips of paper used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in black ink. The front and inside sentiments are from Inspired by Stamping.

happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week! I’m happy to share that I’m guesting for Scrapping4funChallenges again! One of my projects was featured several weeks ago so I was asked to be a guest designer for Challenge #153 – Thanks / Thanksgiving / Gratitude. Bugaboo is sponsoring so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize!

I created a Thanksgiving card using Bugaboo’s Autumn Jar digital image which I colored with my Studio 71 alcohol markers. I just love this image, and as all Bugaboo images are, it was a pleasure to color!

20191102001a

I cut the image with a stitched mini scallop rectangle die, stamped a sentiment at the top, and layered it on foam and then the background created from three colors and patterns of paper from one of my favorite paper pads. Then I added several dark brown sequins.

20191102002a

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the papers used on the front and then stamped a sentiment.

20191102003a

Here’s one more look… loving how this turned out! This month starts my absolute favorite time of year! ;)

Side Step Tool Box Card

Hi everyone! I’m happy to share that I’m once again guesting for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my art journal spreads was a Featured Creation a few weeks back, so here I am, lol! I’m thrilled to share my GD inspiration project for Challenge #110 – Masculine/Boys. Come play with us! I created a super cute masculine card that could easily be used for a birthday or for Father’s Day, using the Side Step Tool Box Card cut file from the Silhouette store. How flippin’ cute is this?!

2018_02150001a

The base was cut from red, the drawers from red and silver, the peg board from dark brown and the tools from yellow and silver cardstock. And I added a couple flat head screw brads. Oh, what fun!

One final shot showing the step card construction. I’m so smitten with this cut file!

thanks

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m very happy to share that I’m guest designing over at Scrapping4fun Challenges again! One of my cards was featured a few weeks back and the lovely Rachelle asked me to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge, so here I am! And I’m stoked to share my GD project for Challenge #103 – Winter Wonderland!

My inspiration came from the the gorgeous shades of blue in the inspiration photo. I immediately thought of “Winter Blues” and created a glittery blue thank you card. One can never have too many thank you cards in their stash, especially around the holidays. The shoe image I used is called Christmas Heels from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I’ve had it in my stash for several years. I have a (slightly huge) shoe fetish and I have just about every one of Jodie’s shoe images, lol! I love them!

2017_10280004a

I colored the shoe with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut it. I cut a piece of blue glitter paper the size of the card base and cut the bottom off with a stitched scallop edge die to expose the white card base beneath. I used some Inspired by Stamping stamp sets for the front and inside. I stamped the front sentiment in the lower right corner of the card base and added some very light blue Crystal Drops. Super easy and super fun! :D

2017_10280005a

I kept the inside fairly simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. I’m really diggin’ how this turned out, lol!

2017_10280006a

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock, DCWV Glitzy Glitter cardstock
Stamps: Inspired by Stamping Teeny Tiny Greetings and You Are stamp sets
Ink: Spectrum Noir- JG1, JG5, DR5, TB2, TB3, TB4, TB5; Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle Overlay Marker, Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Dies/Punches: My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a great week and you’re having wonderful spring-like weather where you are! I’m happy to say that I’m once again a guestie over at Scrapping4fun Challenges! Another one of my cards was chosen as a Featured Creation a few weeks ago, so here I am! I’m absolutely thrilled to share my inspiration Challenge #90 – Ladies!

I created a very feminine shabby chic Christmas card featuring both tool and ink distressing, smeared grit paste and watered-down Gesso splatters on the front, and stamping on the inside. I had a great time with this!

LeslieTurner-May12-Ladies

All the elements were distressed with tool first and then ink, and then randomly layered on the background.

2017_04300014a

I smeared small amounts of grit paste and splattered watered-down Gesso on the front when I had all the pieces in place.

2017_04300015a

I kept the inside fairly simple with a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.
