Sweet Music

Hello! It’s the third Thursday of the month, so time for a new challenge at Imagine That Digi Stamps. For my DT card, I used a pre-colored image and two sentiments from a digi set named Grand Piano. The base is a fold called an “Impossible Card.” It is actually very easy to make. You can find instructions HEREI used patterned papers and gold photo corners from my scrapbook stash to add some elegance to the card.
One added note- The designer/owner of Imagine That, Kris Breach, provides her DTs with a coupon code that allows any friends a discount on their next digi order. If you stop by the shop I know that you'll find lots of digis you'll want to add to your collection. Then, make sure to enter your card into this months challenge with an "Anything Goes" theme for a chance to win a $12 coupon to the Imagine That Digistamp shop, or a Top 3 award which includes 2 free digi sets of your choice and an invite to be our Guest Designer in the next challenge!  You can find the full rules HERE.

I absolutely loved making this card! Am thinking this image from Sheepski Designs named “Ballgown” inspired the Cinderella wanna be in me and this is the result. A diecut background that I upcycled from a birthday card, some scraps of vellum, a bit of ribbon, a strip of acetate, a nice sharp scissors, computer-generated sentiments, a few clear stamps (I picked up the castle, pumpkin coach and glass slipper at a garage sale and don’t know who makes them), and "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" this card appeared! So fun. Am entering it into several challenges, a few need a bit of explanation- Spectember Day 15 (my mixed media is markers plus vellum, acetate for the glass slipper, brushed silver cardstock, ribbon and assorted gems) and Power Poppy (the Ballgown digi image that runs off of the right lower edge of the card is trimmed to fit the card.)

A few years ago I discovered a website named Little Scraps of Heaven. Artist Tricia Moore provides a wonderful free digi and/or paper piecing image every week. You can download this weeks freebie HERE. This cute image named “Little Harvest Bear” was the freebie last September 3-9. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and adhered him to a leafy background made with an upcycled calendar page. The sentiment on the front is from a We Are 3 Digital Sentiment set named "Autumn Sentiments."  The inside sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC. And the wonderful little maple leaves are from an Imagine That digi set named “Autumn.”
