Hybrid Layout for Sunny Challenges

It is a sketch challenge this week at Sunny challenge and creations. Instead of the usual card I decided to show a scrapbook layout. Although a physical page, I have used My Digital Studio to create elements of it. The large doily was created in MDS by enlarging one of the stamps in the delicate doilies set and then using my electronic cutter to cut it out. The journal text box was also created in MDS and then printed at home.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Delicate Doilles
Card: tangerine tango, island indigo and whisper white
Ink: gold encore
Accessories: Various size scallop circle punches, venetian romance dsp, gold glimmer brad

The challenge this week at just Add Ink is add a bit of grunge to anything! These cards are great, so easy to do and lots of interest without a lot of embellishments, great for a teenage boy which is where this card is heading to. Isobel's boyfriend is having a birthday party this weekend, her first teenage boy/girl party. I'm only a little worried!

Project Recipe
Stamps: gorgeous grunge and grunge rock (retired)
Card: Bermuda bay, smoky slate and whisper white
Ink: smoky slate, bermuda bay, pacific point and crushed curry
Accessories: linen thread

Gift card holder using Wildflower meadow

I made this for a challenge on one of the many facebook craft groups I have joined. It is a 4x5 inch card which doubles as a gift card holder inside. You can see the extra flap on the inside which holds the gift card. I have used the masking technique on the inside for the flowers.
Project Recipe
Stamps: Wildflower meadow, flower shop and label love
Ink: wild wasabi and strawberry slush
Card: wild wasabi, regal rose (retired) and whisper white
Accessories: Wildflower embossing folder, curly label punch, label punch and self adhesive rhinestones
