Love To Scrap Challenge #28 Scraplift This

Hi Everyone!
Time for a new challenge at the  Love To Scrap Challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is a little different.  The theme is called Scraplift This.  The challenge is to pull elements from the scrapbook page and use them to create your own project.  You will find the scrapbook page on the blog post for the challenge.

The sponsors for the challenge are:

Fred She Said

Prize: $10 gift certificate
Fred, She Said

Mr. Digi's House of Stamps

Prize: 2 images of choice to winner

For my Design Team Project, I used a soooo sweet image from Fred She Said.  I "lifted" the following items from the Scrapbook page for my card:

The color scheme
rick rack
punched edge
paper flowers
love theme
dragonflies--but I substituted butterflies

Stamps: digital images from Fred She Said-- Real Burd Love and Sentiment (on inside of card) Hearts and Roses Set
Copic Markers: YR68, RV11, RV34,B00, B12, R35, BG75, BG72
CS: White; orange, Bashful Blue and Marina Mist - Stampin' Up and various colors to punch flowers
DP: My Mind's Eye - Dolled Up and Tangerine pads
Spellbinders die Labels 22
Flower, Edge and Decorative label (on inside) Punch - Stampin' Up
Butterfly die: AMuse Studios
Blue Twill Ribbon


  • Print out the digital image on white CS and let the ink dry thoroughly--make sure the ink is dry before coloring
  • Make a card base 4.5" x 6.25" from orange CS
  • Punch a Strip of blue CS with the edge punch and add to bottom
  • Wrap ribbon around the DP and cover card base with DP's

  • Color the Burds with Copic Markers
  • Die cut the image and a piece of Bashful Blue CS
  • Add to card front with dimensional adhesive
  • Tie a bow from the ribbon and glue 

  • Punch flowers from CS
  • Layer the punched flowers and punch a hole through all layers
  • Add a brad to each flower set
  • Die cut the butterflies

  • Add the flowers and butterflies to the card with dimensional adhesive

  • Print out the sentiment for the inside
  • Punch out and add to the inside with a few flowers and butterflies

Really fun challenge!!  Give it a try!! We would love to see your interpretation of the challenge theme.
