DICC #28


Hello! It's April 1st, so there is a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge for you! Our newest itinerary is from Patricia Hays. As usual, the challenge is to use at least 3 items off of the list. Here is Patricia's itinerary:


1. humorous or punny sentiment


2. no glitter


3. suitable for a child under 10


4. 2 or more patterned papers


5. sponging



6. masculine



7. clean and simple



8. pearls



9. punched or die cut embellishments

10. brown

I decided to make an Easter card for Phoenix. Shhhhhh!!! Don't tell him! I had this cute bunny boy from The Greeting Farm for, like, ever...so I just had to use this cutie for my cutie. I used #'s 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10.


Isn't he a sweet? He's got hair kinda like Phoenix's to. I used my watercolor markers and Copics to color the image in. I sponged on some Evergreen Bough Distress Ink (yes, with a cosmetic sponge) around the edge of the white circle.

I kept is uber simple...only one patterned paper (which is insane for me!), a cool piece of yarn and 3 rhinestones, because Phoenix loves rhinestones!

Thankfully, I have the girl version of this bunny too...so I better get hopping and color her up for Rhiannon! Please be sure to visit the DICC blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with for this itinerary. I hope you'll play along!

2 quick suggestions, you should also be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog today, as well as the Simply B Stamps Blog. There are some great things happening at both of those places! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I'm glad to be the guest designer at DICC, and it's fun seeing what other stampers are doing with the itinerary.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
