Lisa from Our Creative Corner asked me a few weeks agoif Iwanted to bethis week'sguest designer, and I said YES of course.
But Ihad to strugglewith thisweek'schallenge,I must admit.
This weeks theme is Let´s Get Country with a photo for inspiration and to use plaid, such as in ribbon or designer paper. In the endI decidedfor acountry/westernthemedcard.
I had a hard time findingplaidpaper/ribbon,I had noat home andcould notfind anything inmy localscrapbookingstore.So in the endI had to takethe mostsimilarI had at hometo my card.
For the shipboard stars I first heat embossed them with gold embossing pouder. Then I dabbed them with black archival ink, then I painted them with picket fence crackle paint to getthe right look ofrustygold.
I think youalready knowthe manin the picture, Johnny Cash that has touchedmany heartswith his life andhis songs.
I hope you will play along too, check out what the talanted design team over at Our Creative Corner have to show you.
I´m back again with my last project as guest designer for Tuesday Throwdown. I have had so much fun with the images I got to work with, and this week the sponsor is My Grafico a leading digital online store.
The challenge this week is "Fall colors". For my card I used some Dylusions sprays, stencils and stamps. And of course the tree and flower from My Grafico that I colored with Copics and then cut out by hand and added to my card.
I got the gnome from Freubel, and he´s also cut out. The sentiment was writtenon my oldtypewriterthat still works. Greatqualityonthe oldstuff!
I stitched a ribbon at the bottom and added a few Paper pen dots in the middle of the flower.
Oh, I almost forgotten the apple which I made myself, and then gave a layer glossy accents.
That´s it! If you wonders what it says on the inside, it is ...itcan go just as well withpancakes.
Andthen alittlereminder that thecalories thatyou eaton your birthdaydoes not count:)
Pleace be sure to visit the DT members for more inspiration over at Tuesday Throwdown.

Hello friends! Welcome and thanks for stopping by.
I´m back after a super busy weekend, I have notbeen able to finda single minuteso I couldsneak off tocreate something.
It´s time for my third week as a guest designer for Tuesday Throwdown, and this week My Creative Classroom are sponsoring the challenge which has a cutting corners theme for us to follow. One lucky winner will receive a free seat to a class of their choice.
Here´s my take on it, and I have altered a gift box. I used the wonderful Romantic Collection papers from Prima, and metal corners that I first thought about doing something different with, butdecidednot to do it, I actually like them the way they are.
I had plannedto fillit with somegood chocolate,but thetime ranawayso I had totakewhat I had, and that is a BIGmuffin.
The sentiment from Rox Stamps was stamped with coffee archival ink.
The chipboard bird was first painted with alcohol ink, then I mixed clear embossing pouder and a little glitter, then I heated in. For arougher look I painted with white acrylic paint and then sanded the edges.
Chitchat words from Tim Holtz was adhered around theboxlid, and that´s about it I think.
I hope you will play along in this cutting corner challenge, pleace visit them here.
