Hello, I'm all excited! I just took a post as a 3 month/weekly designer with the team at The Crafty Pad. This is my first time in a DT spot. Now to conquer my weakness....stamps! Our blog is open to all participants but they do love seeing their stamps. Using their stamps will get you placed into a separate drawing to win digi's. Each week we have a Winner and Top 3 for badges. The Winner receives a 10pound voucher with the sponsor of that week. Yep, The Crafty Pad is located in the UK. I must be nearly 5000 miles away. I'll be loading my posts the night before....so you smarty pants know how to use that info right?
Stamps at the Crafty Pad are designed by Debbie and sold under "The Crafty Pad Designs". Check them out if you visit the challenge (just takes a moment).
This week our challenge is: #138 Goodbye Summer, using Autumn colors. My stamp is "Jeremy Popping Round". Out sponsor for this challenge is "Digital Downloads". They have all kinds of goodies for download purchase to enhance your card and scrapbook crafting.
To create my card I started by taking the digi apart on Corel 14. A fab graphics program I started using when I was still working as a graphic designer. After creating components from the original stamp, I added some digi backgrounds and printed out everything on cardstock. They were then cut out and pieced together. The face paper is zigzag sewn, grass layer is taped flat and the image is set on pop up tape. My new thing is shredding ribbon tags and they are set with buttons. A couple apple rhinestones to accent Fall and I have a cute autumn birthday card. I hope you all enjoy it. I wish you peace and happiness, CYA next week with the next Crafty Pad Challenge.
