Hinge Card 10-2

Recently I told you about some svg card files I downloaded from Diana Tunnicliff.  Diana calls these cards hinge cards.  I uploaded all of these files into Design Space.  Depending on how a file is created, some times you have to adjust them a little to cut them in Design Space.  So I adjusted all these files so  all you will have to do is cut them.  This card is one of those files. The file is located here. Click on the link and it will open in DS and you can save it to your account.
Card Supplies:
Card Base: Hinge Card 10-2 by Diana Tunnicliff.  The DS file is here

Blue China Aperature Card

I have been playing around with the new Design Space 3.  I've been trying to create some DS3 files for different card folds.  Julie Flanagan of the MTC Group on Yahoo has created several card files and shared them with the group.  In addition to MTC files, she saves them as svg files also.  That makes it possible for those of us who have the Cricut Explore to upload them into DS and cut them. I have found that usually these files have perforated lines for score lines, so I change them to a DS score line.  One of the files I created was an Aperature Card. The link is here.

This card features:
DCWV China Blue Paper Stack
Anna Griffin flowers - I cut one of the smaller flowers off and put it behind the cut out. 
Lace Ribbon
This card is very easy to make.  I hope you will download the file and save it to your projects.

Thanks again for visiting.  Hope to see you again soon.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Eleanor Paper Stack by AG

Donna recently received a gift card to Joann's for her birthday.  So last Sunday after church, she and I took off to Joann's to see what we could find.  I love these little jaunts with her.  My favorite find was new paper stacks by Anna Griffin.  I have not seen these anywhere else.  The one I got was named "Eleanor".  This card was made with it.  You know I love all things Anna.
I used a file in Cricut Design Space to cut the various elements of this card.  You can find the file here. I did not use the flowers with the file.  These flowers came from Michael's.  This card can be used for birthday, encouragement, sympathy, etc.

Thank you for your continued support.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

DS4J New Release Sunday-Sheltered

It's new release day at Digistamps4Joy again. These are now available in the DS4J Store.  Be sure to check out the blog to see the inspiration from the Design Team.  I chose "Sheltered" for my card.
"Sheltered" is the digi in the middle of this card.  It's the mouse hiding under the toadstool.  I chose a background image from Make It Crafty to compliment the little mouse.  I colored both of them with copics, then drew in the raindrops. I put CTMH Liquid Glass on the rain to make it look wet.

Thank you for your visit.  Hope to see you again soon.

Conie Fong "Peony Delight"

Conie Fong Art and Designs had a new digi release this week and I couldn't resist getting these beauties. They were called "Peony Delight" and "Peonies in a Jar."  I especially liked Peony Delight and decided to see if I could apply some of my Kit and Clowder coloring lessons to it.  I colored the image with Copics, then tried to create a background for it.  I went a little overboard on my color dimension and the background became a distraction from the image.  I started digging through my paper for a pack of Gradient colors I had purchased a while back.  I cut what I thought was the perfect background and made a 5X6.5" card.  I added sequins and a bow.  I hope you like it.
Thank you for visiting with me today.  I love hearing from you.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Digistamps4Joy Mid-month Challenge Post

Today is the 15th of April, time for Team B's posting some inspiration for the Digistamps4Joy Challenge.  Our theme this month is Anything Goes with a twist of "Inspired By A Song".  I tried to think of a popular song I could represent but then decided on a song that has meant so much to me all my Christian life.  It's an old hymn that tells of the "Amazing Grace" of God.  Where would we be without that Grace extended to us at Calvary.  Easter always re-emphasizes how much God loves us. Thank you, Father, for your wonderful grace and love toward us.  Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross that we might be saved.  Thank you, also, for rising from the dead that we can spend eternity with you.

Here is my card:

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Background paper is gold foil and DCWV Violet Leaf
Image: Freesian Booklet from Digistamps4Joy 
Image colored with Copics.
Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will join in our Inspired by a Song challenge.

God Bless You and I hope you have a wonderful Easter!!  Peggy

    Crafty Cardmakers Challenge-Spring Into Spring

    We start a new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers.  The theme is Spring into Spring.  It is my pleasure to host this challenge.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  It's the time of year flowers and all of nature take on new life and fill the world with beauty.  It's also the time we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  I hope you will join our challenge and show us your beautiful Spring projects.

    My card is a simple card made with Craft Artist 2 Professional software.  I learned about this software from one of FB friends, Carla Brooke.  I pop-dotted some of the flowers and banner with foam adhesives for dimension.  


    I appreciate your visit today.  I'll be looking for your entries in our Spring into Spring Challenge.

    God Bless You !!  Peggy

    Dreaming Tree Paper Sculptures

    I can't wait to show you what I've been working on this week. When I first saw these on FB, I knew this was an svg bundle I would buy and make.  This is a Paper Sculpture Bundle by Dreaming Tree.  This is one of the prettiest items I've seen made by them.
    You can buy the whole set (bundle) for $6.99.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on these.  You can upload the svg files to your Cricut Explore(or whatever cutting machine you have that uses svgs) and cut them out.  Leo of Dreaming Tree has videos of how to assemble them.

    Here they are hanging on my dining area wall.  

    Thank you for dropping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend.  Don't forget to worship at the church of your choice.


    God Bless You!!! Peggy
