Club Scrap March Artist Team Challenge With Delft Kit

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge. The Challenge this month is to create projects that incorporate the digital kit. I chose to go all the way and use most elements with the digital kit. Before we start if you came from Lisa's Blog you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen from Club Scrap's Blog.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

I printed the digital design backgrounds on white cardstock. I used the colored plain cardstock from the paper kit. The base of the card is using the plain cardstock. All printed design are matted with plain paper and adhered to the card like a regular paper kit. Added some ribbon and crystal nuvo drops for some eye candy.

Once again I printed the design backgrounds on white cardstock and used the plain colored cardstock from the paper kit. I layered it as I would from a paper kit. I diecut the flower and added a crystal nuvo drop to the center.



I love using the digital kit for my Happy Planner. I print the design on a sticker sheet then trim down to size to fit in the rectangles. Easy Peasy!


Thanks for stopping by. Now head on over to Roni's Blog for more exciting projects using the Digital Kit.

Elizabeth Craft Designs Fabulous Florals Coloring Team Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the March Coloring Challenge for Elizabeth Craft Designs. This month's Challenge is Fabulous Florals.

Here is the link to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Coloring Challenge Blog. There is an awesome giveaway to 3 lucky winners. Be sure you leave a comment for a chance to win.

Below are the steps to replicate this card.


  1. Cut base of card with plain cardstock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", then fold in half. Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.
  2. Stamp Flower Power with embossing ink on water color paper. (2 times side by side)
  3. Sprinkle white or clear embossing powder then heat with heat tool.
  4. Using Color Burst sprinkle colors of your choice and then spray generously with water. (if you don't have color burst then use inks of your choice - distress ink is a good substitute, just replace watercolor paper with soft finish cardstock in white) Set aside to dry. Once dry adhere to center of the card.
  5. Diecut border frame with Dotted Scallop Rectangles and Fitted Rectangles Die on plain cardstock. It's best to use masking tape to hold both dies together when cutting. Adhere to center of the card using pop ups.

Club Scrap Delft Kit and Mojo Monday 487 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Today I am I am showing you a card made with Club Scrap's Delft Kit and Mojo Monday 487 Sketch Challenge. I have to say I love using sketches as inspiration because it pushes me from my usual style.

Mojo Monday Sketch #487

Finished card - measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

I used the Digital Delft Kit. I printed the designs on white cardstock. Trimmed and adhered like regular paper kit. I used the Curvy Leaves die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and used my SNC2 for the matting on plain paper. Here's a tip. Cut your shape with the diecut and to have it matted use the SNC as a scan and then place the plain paper on the mat and add a border. I used this for the half circle and small circle. It worked like a charm.



Thanks for stopping by.

Club Scrap March Artist Team Challenge With Succulents Kit

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to another Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge. This month's challenge is to use a set of coordinating stencils. Lower case, Upper case and Numerials. Starting today the alpha stencils are 50% so be sure to grab them. Before we get started if you came from Lisa's Blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog. All product used is from the Succulents Kit unless otherwise stated.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

For this card I used the stencil with my scanncut. It will work with fussy cutting but if you have a cutting machine this can be fun. I outlined the number 5 and 0 in a black marker. I placed it in my scanncut and cut it out without borders. It turned out better than I had hoped. The base of the card is in plain cardstock. I stamped in India Ink black the big flower and also used the scanncut to cut it out this time with a 0.04" border. I cut out the patterned paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered the flower to the center then adhered the patterned paper to the front base of card. I used pop ups to adhere the 50 and then used diamond stickles to add a little sparkle. Next I stamped and scanncut my sentiment and placed it on the 0.



Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

The base of the card is plain cardstock cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" then folded in half. I cut a dark color cardstock 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and adhered to bottom of card leaving the top in lighter cardstock. I cut the patterned paper 3" x 4 1/2" and directly on the patterned paper I used Texture Paste with the Upper Case stencil B. Once it was dry I adhered to the card. I created the word mine and cut it with the scannut. I adhered it slightly on top of the B and added some stickles for some sparkle.

For this card I went mixed media crazy and out of my comfort zone. I knew I wanted to use the canvas tag on my card. I started my using a background stencil with texture paste. As it was drying I sprayed some inks. Then I added a mist of perfect pearls white with water. Once dry I used acrylic black paint and used the numeral 1 to use as a shadow. When that dried I used the numeral 1 with texture paint and colored it with inks. The base of the card is in plain cardstock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" then folded in half. I cut a patterned paper 4" x 5 1/4". I used a cut-a-part and placed it in the upper left corner. Then I added the tag. With the fiber yarn I wrapped it 3 times and tied in front with a knot then adhered to the card. For a finishing touch I heat embossed in silver the sentiment love and used the scannut to cut it and adhered to card. An unconventional Valentine's or Anniversary card but I just love how it turned out. 



That concludes my projects. Be sure to head on over to Anne Marie's Blog to continue seeing awesome projects using the alpha stencils.

Club Scrap Succulents Kit With Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #483

Hi Everyone,

Today I am showing you a card I made with the stunning Succulents Kit from Club Scrap using the Sketch#483 from Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge Blog. I love using sketches because I find it pushes out of our comfort zone. 

Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday #483

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

For my card I chose to matte nearly every layer I put down. I find it helps to separate the colors when multi layering. I used the 12"x12" patterned paper and matted it with the 12"x12" plain paper. I used the ribbon & sentiment from the kit.



Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back on February 22 for the Club Scrap Succulents Blog Hop and Linky Party.
