Change is in the Air

Big Changes are coming to the Infinite Visions. Over the next few weeks I will be transferring my freebies from here to House of Ratz. I figure it makes more sense to put all my digital art in one place to make it easy to find. Also, I will soon be adding free digi-stamps for card-making and scrapbooking. Keep an eye open......

Digital Tuesday Challenge

This weeks challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenge is "Hop to It". I used my usual magazine backing board for my base, Easter Bunny from Dustin Pike and a tea bag medallion and paper, ribbon,eyelets, stamps and a rhinestone from my stash. Bunny is colored with BIC pens and Prismacolor pencils and then attached with pop-dots for a 3-d effect.

Two Fer One Challenge(s)

This week, I'm doing two challenges that ended up working well using the same entry.
Over at Stamp Something they have a challenge to use a charm in your design. Mine is the brass heart in the upper left hand corner.
At Stampin' for the Weekend, the challenge is to follow a sketch to create your design. The sketch is here on the blog.

My design was too large to make into a card with the supplies I have, so I made a wall hanging. I don't have all the latest toys like personal die cutters, so sometimes my cuts are not quite perfect. I figure that proves its handmade. :) The stamped image is by Stampin' Up!, the gold embossed paper word charm is from Hot Off the Press, the flowers are by Fred, She Said Designs, everything else is just stash. I mounted the piece on comic book baking board, which is acid-free and VERY sturdy.

Digital Tuesday Challenge #18: 'Bling'

This week's challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenge is 'BLING'. I went a bit overboard. :) Santa is a digi-stamp by Dustin Pike and can be found here. I used iridescent glue for his skin and moustache. Everything else is glitter glue. I continued the Santa motif with a tea bag motif accented with a rhinestone. The message came from a freebie at Fred, She Said.

Stampin for the Weekend Challenge #9

This week's challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend is "Alterations". I decided to work a little magic on a fast food item. This is a cup used for fried foods at a local conveinience store:

NOW it is a hangable Halloween decoration that can be filled with candies or dried flowers. I used scrapbooking paper, cardstock, eyelets, ribbon and glitter glue for the transformation.
