DIY Photo Light Box

The theme for this weeks challenge over at Stampin Royalty is ANYTHING but a card. I am guessing that this little project I made would cover the anything part. I decided that I was not very good at taking photos of my finished cards, so I jumped on the ever faithful Pinterest and found a few of these Photo Light boxes. I made this one out of stiff cardboard (Newsagents) and cut three square windows. One on the top and both sides. I then covered the sides with Tracing paper, (that's all I had on hand). There is a sheet of cut down A3 paper stuck on the back of the box, and there you have it. A home made (inexpensive) Photo Light Box. I will let you know how it works out.

Only ever good thoughts

Here is the card I have made for the Stampin Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge this week. There were so many things going on in this picture, it was difficult to decide what sort of card to make. So after a lot of changing and re positioning, I decided that I would go with the ever faithful Stippled Blossoms stamp set and focus on the floral aspect of the picture.

Have a little look at what the girls have some up with using the same picture for their inspiration.

Its your birthday

I have had this little cutie coloured in for a while now, just begging to find the right sketch to use her on. Well, Mojo Monday just happen to have the sketch I was looking for. So here she is, in all her glory. I would like to introduce you to sherry t designs. I love all of these digital images. Incredible artist. I hope I have done Sherry's image justice with this card. I know I love it. This stamp is called Gemmas Secret Crush. Stay tuned and you will see some more images from Sherry, all coloured up and, well, you know the rest. Ha. So having Stampin Royalty as a birthday challenge, I thought I would link up this card, just for fun.

Happy 4th Birthday Stampin Royalty

This week at Stampin Royalty we have a little birthday challenge for you to play along with. I pulled out my old faithful, a Rose is a Rose stamp set from Stampin Up and used the stamp off technique to create this card. I have also used the sentiment from Fifth Avenue Floral. Go over to see what the other girls have come up with, or better still, create your own birthday card and submit it on Stampin Royalty's site. Either way, have fun.
