Design Team Call for Paper Crafting World

You may remember I was a member of the Design Team for Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut some time ago before life became a bit busy to continue with it.

Melinda, the owner of Paper Crafting World has put out a call for new design team members so I thought I would give it a go again!

I wanted to showcase some of my work from the past couple of years and have gone back through my photos to see what I could find. The biggest problem was what not to include!

This card was made using a lighthouse stamp I bought because I liked the idea of using it in a scene, which I have done here.

I used distress inks to colour the background, giving a nice gradient to reflect the sun setting over the sea. I coloured the lighthouse using copic markers.

The sand dunes are a background stamp designed by my friend in the UK, Sue Law who also designed the mini set from which the seagulls in the sky are included.

The image was layered onto a toning background then bound with jute twine and layered onto the base card.

To make this card, I inked with distress ink and misted a layering stencil then placed it onto the card base to produce a "negative" effect.

The flower stamp is a favourite from Montarga (here in Christchurch) which I coloured with Copic markers, then fussy cut and layered onto a background card stamped with a text background stamp.

I made this Mother's Day card using my Cricut Explore and Design Space. The sentiment and flowers are included in the subscription to Design Space under the Mother's Day Phrases set.

I cut a background piece from cream card then embossed it using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

The card base was also cut using one of the card bases found in Design Studio.

This piece is a wall hanging I made for my son and daughter-in-law for their recent wedding anniversary.

I designed the piece in Design Studio using Regal font B which I split, added lines to both sides then inserted the name. I added their names to the bottom of the hanging along with the date of their wedding.

I cut the piece in vinyl and attached it to an 8" x 10" canvas.

My final piece for this DT call, is one of the mini-albums I have made recently. I posted this one yesterday but I really liked it so here it is again!

The mini album is one of Kathryn Krieger's designs from the Foto Folios 2 set that she designed earlier this year. I used Kaiser"s Mix and Match paper to cover the pages. As this was a gift, I did not put any photos in it as it was designed for the receiver to put photos of their trip to New Zealand into.

I did enjoy being part of Melin's Paper Crafting World Design Team and hopefully, she will consider me again for this current call!
