This month the theme at Gecko Galz is "Autumn". I tried to make three different cards using my favorite images from Gecko Galz. I love the different backgrounds Gecko Galz has. This is only one of them and I have used it in two different cards.
I am really pleased with the chalk background I made on the card. It matches pretty well with the background of the image.
This is one of my favorite images of a bee. I used a woven mesh as a mat under it
I know a number of the other Gecko Galz team members used farm animals for the theme "Country Charm", but I decided to use images of people who were symbolic of the theme. I hope you enjoy seeing the cards I made.
You can't really see it, but I filled the front of this card with little raindrops made from Stckels.
The theme at Gecko Galz this month is Fairy Garden. Here are a few samples. The weird coloring in the main image is due to my printer running out of ink, but it was perfect for my backgrounds. I hope you like what I created.
Here are some Winter Wonderland ideas using the great digitals from Gecko Galz. I hope you like what I have done with these designs. They are part of the Customer Challenge "Let It Snow".
I trimmed the bottom of the front of this card with two different lace borders. The flower resembles a "frozen" flower as I used some cracked glass on top. The little snowman is raised a little with a dimensional dot. Also if you look closely, you will see the snow on the image is also dimensional. I used Liquid Applique to obtain that effect.
This is a very simple card, but if you will look closely you will see that the front is a little unusual because it has aa turned up corner with the image over it revealing the base layer.
This is a very simple card. The main feature is the tinsel trim around the image.
Using a Gecko Galz image again, I made a tag with the word "Believe" stamped on the snowman designer paper. Using these Gecko Galz images is so much fun to use and they are so flexible.
During the month of December the members of the Gecko Galz Design Team are creating Christmas tags. Today is my day.
I knew I wanted a shiny background for my Gecko Galz angel tag so I cut a box that at one time held a bottle of perfume. After cutting it into the shape of a tag, I attached an angel on top of a piece of lace which has been attached at the bottom of the tag.
For this tag I covered a shopping tag with Christmas designer paper that had snowflakes on it. I attached the two Gecko Galz images and stamped a greeting. A piece of ribbon with snowflakes on it competes this tag.
I again covered a regular tag with designer paper.. I added a Christmas sticker and cut the angel image and greeting apart and used only part of the greeting.
Please go and visit Gecko Galz Scrapbooking website to see all the sample tags from the other team members and learn about all the challenges and giveaways.
November at Gecko Galz means thinking ahead to Christmas. The customer challenge this month is "Deck the Halls". I chose to use images from the Christmas Carolers sheet today. I hope these will put you in the Christmas mood.
The free Christmas stamp for this month is below. Enjoy.
