Bloobel Progressive Challenge - July 2017


It's time for the next instalment of the Bloobel Stamps Progressive Challenge and this month we have to create a scene with this fun Diver. I have added the Scaredy Crab and one of the funky garden plants {GM George} as a freaky bit of seaweed to create my scene.  A fun little sentiment - "The things you see under the sea" - finishes off the design.

Anyone for Tennis?? PLUS a Fur Colouring Tutorial


July is the month for the Wimbledon Grand Slam tennis tournament so of course Teddy Bo has to practice, practice, practice. This adorable image is from Teddy Bo and is from the July Bundle but will be available as a single in August. I'm a bit concerned he's playing on a court with a chicken wire net, AND he's broken his tennis racquet - but at least he looks the part and maybe, just maybe, he'll manage to win a point or 2.

I was also asked to do a quick tutorial for the DT over at Teddy Bo Towers on how to colour fluffy fur. Now I'm no expert, and my "fur" ends up being fairly course - but here is a step by step guide for you using one of my favourite combos - of course you can use ANY colour combo you wish.

Summer Fun in La-La Land


It's Summer Fun time in La-La Land - I wish it was here in Melbourne too - it's the middle of Winter here LOL. My daughter recently came home from a trip to Bali and her photos inspired my layout today - although I am wishing I was there in the photos and not on the "other side".

A Tutorial for La-La Land Crafts - Standing Joy Fold Card


Today I have a little tutorial for a card fold I've used many times, the joy fold, but this time I've turned it 90 degrees to make it a Standing Joy Fold Card for a bit of added fun.

Here's what you'll need...

 Paper Doll Marci {Happy} plus sentiment

PLUS...
Corner Punch
Brad
Flowers
White, yellow and green card
Patterned Papers
Rhinestone




Cut your white card to 11" x 5.5" and score at 2 3/4" and 5.5". Concertina fold as shown. Use your corner punch on all of the corners which will face towards the top of the finished card {use the photo as a guide}. Cut patterned papers to fit and mat with yellow card before attaching to the card base. Fold into shape.


Die cut the largest Stitched Tag in craft chipboard and attach to the card front, at an angle like mine if you wish.


Die cut the smallest Double Stitched Cirlces in patterned paper and mat with a yellow die cut Pierced Scalloped Circles in yellow. Use the brad to attach it to the back of the card, positioning it so it holds the card together when the Stitched Tag is tucked under it. Decorate as desired or use my card as inspiration.


Side view to show the fold better.


And to neaten up the back I covered the brad legs with another die cut Pierced Scalloped Circle.

 I hope you enjoyed this new take on a old fold and give it a go yourself.

Red, White and Blue in La-La Land

 

This week in La-La Land we are using red, white and blue on our cards as an optional choice on out Anything Goes projects. Obviously I chose to use them - LOL. I don't like to add too many embellishments onto card with male images, but since Luka is carrying a rose I figured I could add a few extra flowers - he may be giving this to a female famly member or friend.

Simply Betty Stamps Progressive Challenge - July 2017


 It's time for the next installment of the Simply Betty Stamps' 2017 Progressive Challenge. This month we were given this gorgeous American Independence Day image called Fireworks Beauty to use and the challenge is to use this recipe on our projects....

1 Designer paper (minimum)
Stars and stripes anywhere on the project besides the image of courseUse ribbon or twine

MUST USE THE SENTIMENT {mine is tucked inside the card}

I created a star shaped card on my Cameo and - because I'm not American - I chose some striped paper in funky colours to use instead of a more traditional red, white and blue. I mirrored the colours throughout the image and covered the star that said "4th" with a lovely lime green rose. I know have a birthday card that will be perfect to give to a friend who has a July birthday. 

You can see all of the inspiration, rules and entries in the July Album in the SBS Facebook Fan Group.
