“Hi, I am Desire Fourie from sunny South Africa and am so thrilled to be a guest designer here – thanks for having me.
I used this cute image from Bugaboo called AVA SWING to play with and you can purchase it here. Of course 'S'wing is my interpretation of anything beginning with an 'S'.My design is a centre step card, my favourite card design. The sentiment is a from Create with TLC. The image and sentiment were coloured with H2O water colour pencils and dry chalks. The flower embellishments were created with flower and circle punches and the tutorial for it can be found here on my blog. The design paper are from BasicGrey and the bling and photo turns from my stash.Your can read a bit more about my card over at my blog, DOING LIFE www.desiref.blogspot.com
Bettina said S is for Snail, and S is for Shaped card, also S is for Stars (S for stamps on the mail too)! Good one Bettina. The cute snail image is called Snail Mail.
....and a few more crafty makes from our fabulous Design Team!!
We would love to welcome a new 4 challenge team mate....
Stella is full of Sunshine and Snark! Stella, along with her dogs (from left to right) Stenton, Stewart, and Steel are having a Sunshiny day...or are they? Well, anyone who's anyone knows Stella, and Stella is no slouch! She won't let you get away with S@*#...unless it's her dog's S@*#! Obviously Someone did Something to Send Stella in to a Stellar S@*# fit! I hope it wasn't you!!!
I love everything Stella, especially her Snarkiness! Stella Tidbits - Ray of Sunshine is from Bugaboo, our generous sponsor for this challenge! She was printed on Xpress Paper, colored with Copics, and fussy cut I used Tim Holtz's Rays Layering Stencil and inked it with Mustard Seed Distress Ink to make the background. A strip of green washi tape was added to the bottom. The adorable Puppy brads are from Eyelet Outlet.
Hi, I read a beautiful quote: "Somewhere out there is a swing that misses you. You`re never to old for fun, swing, dance, sing, laugh and act silly" and I love it. We always have to take some time for having fun.
For my project I used "Ava swing" in a gate fold card. The image was colored with Spectrum Noir, Prismacolor pencils and chalks.
Gemma - on sick leave
I went with the obvious... Sunflower. I have decided to make a set of tags, one for each month to decorate my space and this image (Flower name - Sunflower) is the first to be used for this project. More pictures and details on my blog.
This is such a fun challenge, I can find so many Bugaboo images beginning with S for a start, and this one is Sock Monkey Sitting. He is sitting on Happy Birthday also from Bugaboo, and I just realised S stands for Spotty ribbon - from Crafty Ribbons of course, and S stands for for Scallops.
This image is Clown Six, he is on a Shaped panel (with Scallops), and there is more of that Spotty Ribbon, and Sparkly Stickles glitter glue, and Spotty paper. Ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.
Doris - on sick leave too.(Deacon Swing) and the other (Ava Swing) was supplied especially for the challenge! S for Swing...Stripes, shoes, a screw brad, string, silver, sunflowers, (well....they're yellow!) and.... the pale blue back ground behind the swings (PinkPetticoat) has tiny stars on it. There's also some mock stitching, swirls, some stickles glitter and I've used silicone glue!
