Summer Alphabet Challenge

It's Designer Challenge Day at Elizabeth Craft Designs!  That means there's a ton of fun and crafty inspiration on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  This month, we are celebrating the alphabet.  Fantastic!  And there's a prize.  All you have to do is answer a question on their blog!   Be sure to check it out at their blog for your chance to win!


Here's my alphabet creation:



I love the amazing Elizabeth Craft Designs Blackboard Alphabet.  They are a great size for cardmaking or scrapbooking.  I also used the NEW Party Lanterns dies.  I used adhesive to adhere Cool Diamond Silk Microfine glitter to the white tops of the lanterns.  The opening in the middle was cut with the Adventurous Edges.

That beautiful paper is from the Fly & Scrap 6x6 paper.  My full supplies list is below.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Be YOU

Posting a card today using products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I used the FuN Stitched Hexagon dies along with the Fashions 2 Clear Stamps and Coordinating Dies to create this:


LoVe those hexagons and I wanna own that dress (and be skinny enough to wear it!)  The pattern paper is from the Butterfly Dreams 12x12 Paper Collection.  For the background paper, I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs embossing folder called Lots of Dots.  The dress is colored with Copic markers:  R81, R83, R85, B93, B95, YG03, YG06.

Thanks for stopping by today.  My supplies list is below.

Craftily yours,

Crazy 4 Eclipse Cards

Today is my last post as guest designer for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog!  This weeek's challenge is to do an eclipse card.  This is my first!



The beautiful paper is from Elizabeth Craft Designs - Butterfly Dreams 12x12 collection.  I used their Blackboard Alphabet dies  and the Small Butterfly die.  Pretty.  The eclipse part was easy.  I cut the letters from the background and then cut them again in a teal color and layered the cut outs.  I then used some pop-tape to pop the letters.

Thanks for stopping today!  Hope you join the Eclipse Challenge!

Craftily yours,
