TCCCB – Recycle Something!

Hello, welcome to the mid-month challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is a Recycle Something! I took me awhile to figure out what to do for this one, so don’t be scared to play along. It doesn’t ahve to be something big, just something reused!

The sponsor I’m working with this time is QKR Stampede. Please swing by their website and thank them for supporting Sketch Saturday.

I have saved in my craft room, for too long, this paper bag that I received at a store. I love the vintage print on it, but never got around to creating with it! Today, I used it for both a background piece, and I made paper flowers from it!

TCCCB – Humourous

Hello, welcome to the February 1st challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge theme this fortnight is Humourous. So, grab your puns, jokes and wise crack advice and let’s see ’em!

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is My Stitch Back in Twine. I had the opportunity to play with Bite Me Lips.  This was great because it’s an image I wouldn’t normally pick, but I got to try some new techniques and playing with my gel pen for highlights. It turned out quite well!

To add the funny, I also paired it with a Riley and Company sentiment, which is quite perfect for this image!

TCCCB – Embossing

Hello, welcome to the December 1st challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is Embossing. Wet or dry, it’s your choice! Personally, I’m a fan of dry embossing, but I always admire those fantastic crafters that can work miracles with embossing powder.

The sponsor for this challenge that I get to play with is Rick St. Denis and I’ve chosen his adorable kitten image to play with!

Here is my creation for this challenge. As you can see, I’ve gone with dry embossing on the back background panel, an old Stampin’ Up embossing folder that remains one of my favorites!

Sketch on this card was from this week’s Paper Players sketch (#372). And, since it’s that time of year, I’m also entering this in a couple of Christmas challenges, over at the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge and The Crafty Addicts Anything Goes/Christmas challenge.

TCCCB – For the Boys

Hello, welcome to the September 1st challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is For the Boys. I’m working with the products over at Decosse’s Dynamite Doodles, which are fabulous for your digital projects, or to print and use for your “paper” projects.

Here is my creation for this challenge. I decided to go with the blues and forego an image on this one. The papers from Decosse’s printed wonderfully on my printer and were great to work with! The was fairly easy to cut out and then I layered the sentiment on the top.

This was a Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch. Though I didn’t get to enter it this time, I wanted to provide credit.
