Coloring Design Team Designer Challenge – January

January 24, 2017

Hi everyone,

As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we are excited to be bringing back the Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenges. Two weeks ago we had our first challenge for the Die Cut Design Team and this time round it is the Coloring Design Team’s turn to play!

Starting in February our challenges will be held on the first Tuesday of the month for the Die Cut Design Team and the third Tuesday of the month for the Coloring Design Team.

For our January Coloring Designer Challenge the challenge is … Cute Critters. The design team are to include one or more critters on their cards or projects.

The new Stamps by Krista line of stamps by Designer Krista Schneider has 11 stamp sets that include a critter of some type that the Design Team can use for the challenge.

Let’s take a look at what our Coloring Design Team created ….

First up today Kelly Booth has created this colorful card, duplicating the colors of the rainbow on the monkey’s shirt. For her card Kelly used White Soft Finish Cardstock that she decorated using Jungle Cuties Stamp set with coordinating dies, Dream Sentiments Clear Stamps, and the new Smile sentiment die.

Love the rainbow of colors on the leaves on the card created by Elena Anderson. Elena has also used the monkey from the Jungle Cuties Stamp set and the coordinating dies. Elena is ‘Wishing You a Colorful Day’ using the sentiment from the General sentiment Stamp set. Elena has also used Soft Finish Cardstock to create her card.

Anita Kejriwal has created this fun scene using the Jungle Cuties Stamp set and coordinating dies. You can see how Anita stamped some of the leaves on White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut them using the coordinating dies and then used the same die to cut more from green card. Such a fun way to use the dies. The cute rabbit, mushroom and flowers along the bottom of the card are from the Woodland Pals Stamp set. To create the grassy hills Anita used the Fitted Frames 4 – Curvy Ovals. The ‘Hello’ sentiment used here is from the General Sentiments Stamp set.

Karen Nofziger has created this ‘tweet’ birthday (or Bird-day) card using the Bird-day Party Stamp set and coordinating dies. Karen also used the Stitched Circles die set and Fitted Frames 5 – Lace Circles to decorate her card.

Creating scenes is so much easier when you have coordinating dies to die cut your images as shown on this adorable card created by Selma Stevenson.  For her card Selma used the Woodland Pals Stamp set with coordinating dies. To help complete her scene Selma also used the Susan’s Garden Earth & Sky Stencil and the Rainbow Sky die set.

 

Frances Byrne created a fun baby boy card using the Zoo Babies and Jungle Cuties Stamp sets with coordinating dies. After die cutting the images, Frances added them to an accordion card she made using the Gift Card Accordion and Oval Landscape Accordion die sets. Frances also used the new A Way With Words Baby Love die set and the word “Boy” from the Baby Clear Stamp Set.

Tina Guigui Dornbaum has created a fun scene on her card using the Birch Forest Stamp set with coordinating dies and Soft Finish Cardstock. Tina also used the Fitted Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles to create the frame on her card. The sentiment is from the General Sentiments stamp set.

Our final card for our challenge this month has been created by Melanie Smith. Melanie used the Woodland Pals stamp set. She added clouds to her card using the Oval Clouds Frame Edges die set. For the layers of the card Melanie die cut cardstock and designer papers using various sizes of rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles die set. To finish off her card, she added the Smile sentiment to the top left corner.

We hope you enjoyed seeing all the wonderful creations our Coloring Design Team created this month and that they have inspired you to create your own “critter” projects.
