New challenge at A & T Digital Designs

Well it's that time again for this fortnights sketch challenge at A & T Digital Designs however we are doing another "Bingo" challenge instead of a sketch.

This would have been my last design for them but I have been lucky enough to been kept on as one of their Design Team members for the next 4 months. It has been a great experience and I have meet some lovely ladies who are very talented and I would like to wish them all the best for their future ventures.

So this is the "Bingo" picture that had to be used either vertically, horizontally or diagonally

This is my creation for the above challenge and I have used the top 3 squares horizontally.

The supplies I have used are flowers from WOC, Kaiser pearls, Kraft cs, Spellbinders nestabilities, liquid pearls & Stickles. I've used The Bees Knees Digital Papers and stamp and Bee-Hive stamp.

The Copics I have used are

I would like to wish everyone good luck and I hope that everyone comes along and joins in the fun and you will also have the chance to win some great goodies.

Crop Day with Scrapsidaisy

Well I finally got to go to our local crop day in Tuncurry last Sunday which made a nice change as I haven't been able to make one for the last couple of months due to work commitments. I packed 4 kits with me (thinking big) but only managed to actually get one completed and one more started.

I used a range of pp's, & chipboard embellishments by Bella which I also made my girlfriends Leane and Rhonda purchase and put a challenge forward that we were to all get done on the day.

They are a beautiful vintage style of pp's and embellishments and they where great to work with, also added some Kaiser flowers, SU ribbon, some lace, Prima bird house & bling and also used a SU ink.

This is actually the first LO I've done in a very long time as I've been concentrating on my DT commitments with A & T Digital Designs and creating cards.

While catching up with Leisa from Scrapsidaisy who I also design for I was given 2 more DT kits to work on which I'm really looking forward to doing as I've actually missed scrappin. Hopefully will also get back into our weekly crop night at Leane's place, always great to catch up with the girls for some scrappin, dinner and always a laugh.

I hope everyone has a great week but I'll be back here tomorrow night with the new challenge for A & T Digital Designs.

Something A Little Different

Well I decided to make a welcome home card for some special people who have been away for 3 months on an overseas holiday. I thought a card in the shape of a luggage travel tag would be something a little unique, I have made ATC's before in this style and was very happy with the outcome so I thought why not do a card. Was originally just going to make your standard 6 x 6 square card but was unable to get my hands on a digital RV or Motorhome stamp so decided to think outside the box.

For a change I've actually only done a little bit of stamping and no colouring so I think I will enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - "Anything Goes"
Bearly Mine - "Shaped Cards"

I normally wouldn't enter this card into the challenge at Bearly Mine as I haven't used any of their beautiful digital papers but I thought that it fit the category of the challenge.

Well I've Done IT Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So just like last time, I've been too busy creating and working to update my blog which I do apologise for but these things do happen and I'm sure everyone gets in the same boat from time to time.

Now for the final challenge to catch up on this one I've also created a tag for as I haven't been 100% this weekend with a pinched nerve in my shoulder which has made it very difficult to get anything done so a tag was nice and quick. I've also use Ashee again as I already had a couple of images printed.

This challenge is "FLOURISHES & SWIRLS" this one will be commencing tonight and running for the fortnight as alwasy.

I've used Kaiser pp's and the small tag at the bottom, lace, ribbon and fringe, Heidi Swapp felt butterfly, SU punch for the leaves, Wild Orchid Crafts & I Am Roses flowers, Spellbinders flourish die and Zva Creative pearl mini flourish. I've also used white gel pen for the dots, Kindy Glitz on the wings & white Liquie Applique on the mushroom for something a little different.

The next challenge I will be uploading is our current sketch challenge and this is the image we had to use.

This is the card that I've created using the above sketch.

The image I've used for this card is ASHEE, I've also used a Martha Stewart punch, MFT mini pennants & Spellbinders Dies, Basic Grey & generic alpha stickers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Kaiser pp's. I've also used Kindy Glitz on the wings, white gel pen for the small dots and Pearl Liquid Pearls on the mushroom.

The Copics I've used are:

This is the first of 3 lots of challenges at A & T Digital Desgins that I will be uploading and firstly it will be the "LACE" challenge and I decided to make a tag for something a little different.

I used 3 different types of lace in this design, 2 on the bottom and one as the tie on the top. I've used by one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders, Kaiser & Wild Orchid Crafts flowers & I Am Roses flower stamens, Maya Roads pin & Tim Holtz ticket. I've also used Tim Holtz distress inks around the edges of the tag.

The Copics I've used are:

The digital image I have used is ISLA and she is available along with all the other Faeiries and new digital stamps at A & T Digital Designs Shop.

Playing Catch UP

Well yet again life has got in the way of me keeping my Blog up to date so I thought I would upload the last 3 challenges at A & T Digital Designs before the next one starts this coming Tuesday.

So almost 3 weeks ago the was our sketch challenge week and and for something a little different it was done as a BINGO challenge in lieu of using a sketch.

This was the Bingo categories that had to be used either across, down or diagonally across the square:

So this was my card using the above Lace, Ribbon & Brads.

The Copics I've used are:

So now onto the last fortnight's challenge which was "BIRTHDAY" themed and I've done something a little different as I already had this image coloured and was in a little bit of a rush due to coming back after 3 nights away in Port Macquarie for my Uncle's funeral.

I've used one of Anita's new skull images and and tried to dress it up a little for a birthday card, I guess if someone was having a themed party it would be appropriate.

The Copics I've used for this one are:

So that's it for that challenge, last week was the sketch challenge and this was the sketch:

The following is my card for the above sketch and yet again I've used my red combo as I just love it and especially with the mushroom digital pattern papers also available at A & T Digital Designs.

The Copics I've used are:

So that brings me up to date so far with my challenge committments at the moment, currently working on the next challenge for this coming Tuesday and hope to be on schedule for once, has been a long quick year so far.

Will be back later to upload a card I recently made for a very good friends special birthday.

Hope you will come and have a look sometime soon.
