By Lori Designs Challenge day!

Hello everyone and Happy St. Patties Day!! Hope you all remembered to wear your green!

It's Thursday again and that means it's time for another great color challenge at "By Lori Designs Challenges"! Our design team have been split up into 2 groups from now on. There will be a Team A and Team B with one of the teams following the color combo that week and the other team having total creative freedom! I'm on Team B and this week we had the chance of creating whatever we would here is my card for this week...

The image I used is from "By Lori Designs" and is called Lollipop Ethan...he can be found here. And Lori just released a bunch of brand new digis that are absolutely adorable, so be sure to check those out too!!


And the Inside...

PAPERS: Plain chocolate brown, sandy brown, golden orange, olive green and white cardstock for the bases. Complete Boy design paper from "My Minds Eye".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is an adorable digi stamp from "By Lori Designs" and the sentiment is handstamped and is from "Kraftin Kimmie Stamps".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Tuxedo black ink from "Memento".
EMBELLISHMENTS: Forest green and sandy brown buttons, olive green corduroy crushed velvet ribbon and square shaped lime green brads and hemp cord.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" with "Quickutz" Retro Squares embossing folder and Dotted Wave border punch from "EKSuccess".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with sandy color thread. Image base panel was 3D foam mounted along with the sentiment.

Lori's digis are just too cute! And you know you just want to play along too! So hop on over to "By Lori Designs" grab a digi and then have a look at all the wonderful creations the team has come up with this week for your inspiration and play along!

  1. This is an awesome card, Tracey! You do such beautiful work. I love all the layers and wonderful design details. Super work on the inside too!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such nice comments. I wanted to tell you that you can use Sizzix dies in your Cuttlebug. That's what I use. For the Bigz dies, you use only the B plate on the bottom and another B plate on the top. For the Sizzlets, you use the same sandwich as you do for the Cuttlebug dies - An A and B plate on the bottom and a B plate on the top. Hope that helps.
