Creative Knockouts Challenge #354- Anything Goes- Di’s Digi Stamps

Hello my crafty friends! It’s time for another challenge over at The Creative Knockouts!

Our theme for this week is: Anything Goes!

Our sponsor is: Di’s Digi Stamps. This week you can win: a $6 voucher to one lucky crafter! The only thing you have to do is to enter this weeks challenge!

This is my card using the image called Sunflower Ted

I love this cute little Teddy Bearl with the sunflower and the little mouse!

This is how I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “Sunflower Ted” on a somewhat thicker paper;
  2. Then I colored it with my watercolor brushes;
  3. I die cutted my image in a square;
  4. I choose a nice piece of pattern paper and placed it on my base card;
  5. I stamped the Dutch Stamp “A specially for you” stamp with versamark ink on white cardstock;
  6. I cutted a banner and mat the sentiment on it;
  7. I placed everything on my card.

With this card I would love to play along in the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiment Designs  – Anything Goes
Digi Choosday Challenge  – Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door – Always Anything Goes

Place to Start June, 2020 Challenge: Create A Shaped Card

Good morning everyone, how are you doing! The month flies by, as usual. Here everything is reasonably under control and life goes on again. There are many discussions going on about whether or not to wear a mouth mask or whether or not to keep it 1.5 meters distance. Anyway. I have to tell you honestly, I use my common sense and I try not to worry too much. In addition, I rely on all those clever minds who are currently working on vaccines to eventually suppress the virus and that we can quickly return to the old normal! In the meantime I am overjoyed with my hobbies and I love to be able to tinker in my craft room!

Today, the first monday of the month, is the start of a new A Place to Start Challenge.

This month the prompt is: Create a shaped card!

So, I have made a Flowerpot Card!

Inside the card there is space for a little note;

I had so much fun making these cards and they are always handy when you need to send out a little friendly note, so that is why I made two of them 🙂

This is how I have made my card:
1. I first break my head how to shape the flower pot, than I made a sketch and a pattern out of that sketch.
2. I cut the pattern out of the cardstock.
3. I die cutted some paper flowers in pink, red and whites.
4. I cut a little rectangle, placed some note paper on it en glued all the flowers at the top.
5. The vintage labels come from the Graphics Fairy Premium Member Website. I thought they would look very cute on the flowerpots and gave them a somewhat vintage look.
6. I added some paper stripes at the top of the flowerpot so it looks like they have a ribbon border.
7. I distressed everything with some distress ink.
8. I stamped the Happy Birthday stamps on the labels.
