Knights & Dragon Cascade Card

Today I am sharing my DT project for Digital Delights by Louby Loo.


DD digi stamps used:  Ready For Battle Sparky, Jubbly Dragon, Knights & Dragons Sentiment Set

Castle Cascade Card svg file from Dreaming Tree 3-d svg

Cardstock & Papers: sturdy cardstock in red, black, light gray, medium gray, gold pearlescent cardstock, gold vellum. Images printed on Spectrum Noir Cardstock by Crafter's Companion.

Markers used: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

My card is large, measuring 11 by 5 3/4 inches. The door drops down and you can add a sentiment inside.

The knights were printed at 3 1/2 and 3 3/4 inches. They were attached to the card with varying thicknesses of foam tape to give the card more dimension. The sentiment is 1 1/4 by 1 7/8 inches and mounted on red cardstock.

Jubbly Dragon was printed at 2 3/4 inches. He was attached to the tower with a piece of foam tape.  (Isn't he cute?)

Fast Food Freddy Gift Box and Slider Card

Hi! Today is new release day at Digital Delights by Louby Loo and I have made a cute little hamburger gift box and a coordinating hamburger slider card. I used "Fast Food Freddy" and the "Fried Sentiment" for my set.

You can find all the new releases here:

Card Recipe

DD stamps used: Fast Food Freddy & Fried Sentiment

Cardstock and Papers: Image printed on Spectrum Noir cardstock from Crafter's Companion, glossy reds are old Scrap in a Snap papers, other print from Nama's Kids from DCWV, others from my stash.

Markers used:  Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Acc./ Embellishments: Box and slider card svg's are from SVG Cutting Files, fries from cricut. Also I used gold bugle beads on the hamburger bun.

I made the box as large as I could using a 12 x 12 inch piece of cardstock. It measures 3 3/8 inches across the top. The image is 3 1/8 inches tall and is attached with foam tape.

I wanted the hamburger card to look like it came from the box, so I sized it at 3 1/4 inches across and 2 1/2 inches tall. Bugle beads were added to the bun to look like sesame seeds. I used cricut design space to attach the sentiment to the slider section of the card. The sentiment slides in and out. The fries are 3 1/2 inches tall.

Bald Eagle Centerpiece

I just love anything patriotic!

Today I am sharing another teepee design, this time a 4th  of July centerpiece created with the KaDoodle Bug Designs file, "CK Bald Eagle." I also used a star and title from cricut.

The eagle is 5 3/4 inches tall. The star is about 7 inches.

The title is 5 3/4 inches across. The completed centerpiece is about 11 inches tall.

Back view

Papers used are from "Americana" from COLORBOK and paper from my stash. I made my base using red tagboard for stability.

If you would like the directions on how to create a teepee card or would like my design space pattern for making a teepee card, go to my June 20th post. (To make a centerpiece the same size as mine you will use 8 inch squares for the base.)

Thanks for stopping by! ~ Shirley
