Mid-Month Post for July DS4J Challenge

The 15th of the month marks the mid-point for the DS4J Challenge.  It is always Anything Goes.  Our twist this month is "Add dies/and or punches".  I chose the digi "Lil Gypsy" for my card.  She is drawn by JenLee of Digistamps4Joy.  

Image colored with Promarkers and Copics.  I used Copics for the skin.  I've been taking some coloring classes from Alyce at Kit and Clowder.  I can't seem to master the flicking technique.  The dies I used are Anna Griffin dies.  The roses are her new Floral dies.  I love them.  They were on the 24 hour Crafting Day on HSN.  

I hope you will join us for this challenge.  Thank you for visiting with me today.  

God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Thinking of You

I have had this label saved in My Projects on Design Space for a while.  It has so many little pieces to each element, it took some time to cut.  But I finally got all my paper together and commenced to cutting.  This is the card I made using the label.

The label is in the Make It Now projects in Design Space or Cricut Access as it is called now.  It is called Anna Griffin Flower Crest.  Like I said there were lots of pieces (some of them intricate) but my Explore cut them beautifully.  

Here is another view of the label but this one I flattened in Design Studio , then printed it and cut it.  It was a whole lot easier and saved a tremendous amount of time.  The one on the right is the printed one.  I think I'll be using this feature a lot more.  The bird has 3 layers of cardstock but I don't see why he couldn't be flattened and print then cut.
Thank you for stopping by today.  I love reading the few comments I get.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

613 Avenue Create Challlenge - Add A Rose

Design Team A is responsible for the inspiration for the new 613 Avenue Create Challenge this week. Our theme is Anything Goes with a twist of "Add A Rose".  Our sponsors are "The Stamping Boutique, Eureka Stamp Store, and Melonheadz Illustrating.  I was assigned Melonheadz Illustrating so I chose their digi group called "Floral".  
This rose is part of that collection.  I colored it with Promarkers.  The background is embossed with Cuttlebug folder.  The die cut is an Anna Griffing die.  I love the "classic" look of this card and it would fit in an envelope with ease.  

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I hope you will join in our Challenge this week.  July is the last month 613 Avenue Create will be a weekly challenge.  In August we are going to become a monthly challenge.  

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Butterfly Card - Anna's Layer Cards 2

This is my last card to show you from the cartridge, Anna's Layered Cards 2.  This is a butterfly card.  All the cards on this cartridge come in 5.5" square and 5X7" format.  
These are some of my favorite colors but I also think it would be very pretty to use glitter paper where the lavendar is.  All this one needs is a sentiment and I'll add that when I give it to someone.

God Bless You!!! Peggy
