Challenge 9 - Animal antics (Wiper card)

Hello everyone...my (Diane) turn to set the challenge this time. Our sponsor this time around is Digital Delights By Looby Lou.

Up for grabs is a $5 voucher to spend in store, and that will go to the best entrant as judged by the design team.

As usual the top three will also be invited to join us as Guest Designers in a future challenge, and will be issued with digi images from our sponsor to use for that challenge.

Now then all you need to know now is the theme I have set. The theme is Animal Antics, and for the cardmakers among you I want to see your animal antics on a WIPER CARD. You can of course enter a scrapbook page or 3D project, but I must be able to see an animal antic connection.

Here are our ideas to get you started:-

Guest Designer
Linda used Scrubbie Sue and Floaty from Digital Delights on her cheerful summer card. The embossed layered sun is great.

As soon as I saw the instructions and pictures of a wiper card I knew I had to make one with a horse and pop up horse shoe! I haven't added a sentiment yet, but it could be any occasion really and there could be a tiny sentiment in the middle of the horse shoe too. The horse is stamped and is Inkadinkado A Horse of Course.

I used Cupcake Timmy from Digital delights coloured in promarkers and embellished with gold glitter glue on this birthday card for my nephew. The sentiment is also from Digital Delights and the balloons are a clip art image. The background papers are from Nana's kids set and I added gold peel offs and some bright celebration related stickers to finish this off.

I used a Timmy Cup cake as well, on the front of my tiger print card. I've 3d-ed him and coloured him with Promarkers and on the pop up I've used Tim The Tiger I've never seen a Tiger eating cake, but there's always a first time for anything!

I have gone with one of my personal favourite images this time around, from Digistamp Boutique and my papers are from Pink Petticoat wild roses. Try as I might I could not get a photo without glare on the pop up part of my wiper card. it is a silver mirror card scalloped oval with best wishes on it and some of the flowers from the image. This is an animal antic I see every summer. My lovely Westie just cant stand to see flowers in pots, she always pulls them out and then plays with the pot, running around the garden with it on her face until she crashes into something.

Please add a link to your blog post (not your blog) using the biggest blue froggy at the top of the collection, the other one (at the bottom) doesn't do anything that we can tell, and please comment after you have linked. Don't forget to mention Quirky and add a link back to here (please read the rules and if you realised you haven't followed the rules and won't be included in the top three, and you want your entry removed to try again - please email us using the link in the side bar).

Have Fun - The Quirky Crafts Challenge Design Team.
