Recycled

Image
Today's challenge at Pattie's Creations Challenge has a theme of 'Altered OR Recycled'. So for challenge #60, I recycled a tall box that a lubricating oil for my shredder came in. Here's the original box: I wrapped the box in a textured white paper as my base, and to hide all of the black text. I digitally created designer paper using the image 'Rub-a-dub Puppies'. The other image I used is titled 'Candee' (Pattie drew her from a photo of our Yorkipoo, Candee). The background image was left uncolored and printed on a pink cardstock. I typed the words, Pet Shampoo, at the bottom of the background paper. The main image of Candee was punched with a circle punch, and a hot pink scalloped circle diecut was placed under the image. So easy to make, yet so effective!

Inspiration Challenge

Another Plaid creation that I'm really liking! The image 'Thinking of You' is from Pattie's Creations. This will go in the Inspiration Challenge over at CDAC. Here is the Inspiration piece from the challenge: I digitally created the Plaid DP by blending the colors from the Inspiration piece. The plaid was also placed inside the center of the flower at a diagonal. I put some Diamond Glaze on the pollen for a dewy effect. Then I finished it up with gold glitter on the center of the flower petals.

Seasonal Challenge

I'm really happy with the way this Valentine's card came out! The image 'Valentine Bear' is from Pattie's Creations. This will go in the Seasonal Challenge over at CDAC, which calls for anything to do with your season now, or happening in this season. I digitally created the Plaid DP which is also in the body of the bear. The image was diecut with a scalloped circle, then dabbed with a yellow ink. I created the yellow strip of paper with the blue hearts, then digitally added Gavin's name. To finish it up I placed 4 sapphire gemstones at the corners.

Easy as 1-2-3 Challenge

A Valentine's Day card for our great-niece, Cassidy, was so much fun to create. My image, 'Cheerleader Pattieboop' from Pattie's Creations, was digitally colored by me, with matching plaid DP created by me. The challenge over at CDAC, the new and updated Digital Crafters' Group, calls for 1 flower, 2 DP's, and 3 Bling. My 2nd DP is the strip with hearts that falls under the image, that I also created. I'm pretty sure I've got the Bling covered with 2 glittered pom poms and 3 ruby gemstones at the corners, plus one in the center of the flower.

Winter Fun

Image
The Holiday Break is over and we are back to our challenges at Pattie's Creations Challenge! For challenge #59, the theme is 'Fun in the Snow'. The image I chose is titled 'Reindeer in the Snow'. I digitally colored the image and added some special touches of a night sky with stars, and a texture of Blue Spruce on the trees. I also added some glittery puffy paint to the trees and areas of the snow. The snowflake background paper was digitally created, then the text Winter Fun was added using a Snow-capped font. Some snowflake embellies at the corners complete my card.
