My DT contributions for this week

Quick, quick...

Before the week is completely over, I have to show you the cards I made for "Just Christmas and Birthday Cards" and for "Stamping with Jany" - I am a DT member on both.

On JCBC we are on Week/Challenge #24 and we had to work with a sketch made by our lovely Tanja. She has also generously donated an adorable Magnolia stamp for this week's prize.

Have a look at the sketch...

Isn't it just great? It was great to work with it, I am not sure I've made it the right justice but
I really had fun following the sketch.

Christmas card

Background paper is from Dovecraft - one of their older Christmas packs
The poinsettia stamp is from Anita's Christmas Classics set - stamped it three times and layered the flower. The middle layer (the lighter coloured one) has some clear gloss on it and that's why it looks lighter in the photo. In real life has the same red as the other layers.
The rest of the stuff is from around the house. :)

Birthday card

This is a very quick card, as I am sure you can all tell by looking at it. :D
I had the heat embossed daisy for a long time just waiting patiently in a box and I thought it might make a nice center image for Tanja's layout.
The stamp is from Papermania - it's a big ornamental stamp and I've cut out the flower in the middle and the surrounding circle.
Layered them on turquoise and orange cardstock
and finished the ensemble with a gem.
Punched out the other circles, used some flowers, gems, a bit of ribbon and
a sentiment from Penny Black.
All the DP are free downloads printed at home. :)

My old camera is (again) not feeling very well so I had to scan the cards. Sorry for bad images.


For Stamping with Jany's new MIMI mini-kit (TAC products) presentation - which is on the 3rd week now - I followed one of her sketches. Apart from sending us (the DT members) the mini kit, JAny also makes sketches for us to work with. But we can use other sketches if we so wish.
The sketch I followed this week (Jany's sketch) is this:

I tried to respect it as close as I could. :)

My card

Another scanned image, a bit blurry on the background because of the popped up images.
Jany's mini kit consists of:
  • 6X6 Mimi paper
  • 6X6 Mimi cardstock
  • A2 US White cardstock with stamped images (4 each of cute little skunks)
  • Lime Scrappers Floss
The papers are very very beautiful and the skunk stamps are absolutely adorable. :) Please have a look at the other cards the DT members made - Linda, Jill and Jany.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are all having a great and sunny weekend.

Mada, blogul meu se pare ca a fost invizibil cateva zile. De prea multa senilitate, am modificat ceva setari... In fine, ar trebui sa fie vizibil din nou, ca am revenit la setarile vechi. :)

Tanja said...

I love all of your versions of these great sketches. Brilliant way to layout flowers!!! Your use of colour is always so playful & stunning. I need to use more bright colours; they looks so gorgeous & feel so fun! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration! :O)

Antoinette said...

I love your cards (as always). The sketch you used for the Christmas and Birthday cards is interesting. I may have a go when I get a bit of time. You did a great job in any case. Gotta love your cute skunks!
