Dragons Lair Designs July Group Digistamp Challenge

After the frenzied activity to get all 7 challenges done for the Bugaboo Christmas in July event it is a bit calmer in the Craftroom! We are off on holiday next Friday so there are a few loose ends to tie up before we head off, as well as work and painting the new house. Ok maybe it’s not as calm as I would like after all.

The first on the list of ‘Things to get done before going away’ is the Dragons Lair progressive digi stamp challenge. The stamp is free on request from the Dragons Lair Designs Fan Group Facebook Page on the understanding that you make something and post it in the album before the end of the challenge.


Materials used:
Dragons Lair Designs – Free Image (request from Facebook Page)
Dragons Lair Designs – Artistic Expressions Papers and Elements
printer card
X-Press It card
Copic pens
A5 card blank

I decided for this card to use just the one loaf of bread from the digistamp. I printed it on X-Press It card and coloured it with Copic pens before cutting it out.

The background has been made up in Serif CraftArtist 2 using papers and elements from the Artistic Expressions kits. I found the quote on the internet and thought it went well with the loaf of bread. The whole background is printed off as one sheet, hopefully the shadows will give the illusion of depth and dimension.

The loaf of bread has been shaped and stuck into the frame with gel glue.

Making up the background has given me some more practice with the CraftArtist programme. I think I am slowly getting the hang of it just by fiddling about although I feel there is a lot more to discover.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Beautifully colored image, and what an amazing background you created! I have never heard of that program, but you are clearly having fun with it! The sentiment you used is perfect with the image. Sounds like you really need a holiday with all that you have going on. Praying you really get to relax during your time off!

    Lovely card

  3. This is wonderful and very inspiring. We are so blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and we hope you can link with us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Jeremiah 32:17 which says, “‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”

    God bless,
