GL8 Distressing

Thanks to everyone that played in our bows challenge.  Amazing job.  I can say I can not believe how much talent there is.  Great job to all of you.  This challenge runs for 4 weeks as our DT is taking a break for the holidays.  You have until Jan 8 to play.  We want to see distressing.  Any kind will do.  You do not have to have a Gingerloft image to play.  Top 3 becomes our GDT for the next  challenge and the random winner will win 3 Gingerloft digi stamps of their choice.  So here we go.

My name is Nataliya. I started making cards a year ago, and can't stop now. Before that, i did many different crafts, like; crochet, cross stitching, beads designs. You can see all that in my cards. I really like to make my own flowers, and absolutely crazy about the glitter, and sparkles.
I started my Blog, so i can have some friends, and now i have friends all over the world. I'm designing on four amazing blogs, and i love what i do. We just need more hours a day. LOL

Hi, I’m Jan and I’m really excited to be  Gingerloft’s guest designer for this challenge! 
I live in a very small town in western Arizona along the Colorado River, am a SAHM and love paper crafting.   I’m currently on three design teams, contribute to another challenge blog when I can and work with Operation Write Home.  Luckily my husband is retired and helps out a lot so I can play with paper.  I hope you enjoy making your projects for this week’s challenge as much as I have!

Now finally the reveal of the new Gingerloft DT!!!

Using Sunflower collage

Birdhouses using Landing

Hello, I am The Navy Wife and I live in a small coastal town in Queensland, Australia.  I am a wife to a navy man, a mother to 3 children, and a servant to one cat.

I have been sewing, crafting and card making for over 10 years now.  I enjoy it greatly and find it a passionate way to express what I am feeling and a great escape to give mummy some ‘time out’.  I do find I have somewhat of an obsession for off the page projects including items for home decor.  I love making projects suitable for gifting to friends and family and am always looking for gifting ideas and stepping outside of the box. I colour my images with watercolour pencils and I have a soft spot for non-coloured images as they can express so many feelings when combined with so many different mediums and paper.

I am recently new to the world of blogging and this is my first DT position and I am greatly looking forward to working with the Gingerloft images and the great aspiring design team.  Gingerloft have some stunningly beautiful images with endless project possibilities and having a peak around the Gingerloft Design Team blogs all the girls do some wonderful gorgeous work, I am sure we will all have a blast working together.  You should pop by for a look at their lovely work and give them some *love*. 

The Gingerloft Challenges run every two weeks and Tami, the Design Team and I would love if you played along with us.  There is no requirement of having to use a Gingerloft Image though it would be lovely if you did, and they also offer some pretty freebie images as well, pop over and have a peak.  I look forward to seeing you and your creations there :)

Fair winds and following seas.
The Navy Wife

Hi, I'm Wendy, my body is 58 years old, but in my head I’m still in my twenties. I live with my husband our bossy elderly cat, between us we have 6 children and 5 grandchildren.

I have crafted in some form or other since I was a child and was taught to knit and sew by my mother, my first real knitting apart from the usual scarves and squares was a pair of lemon coloured baby bootees for one of my Brownie badges. Amazing I can remember that after all those years.

When my children were young I was fortunate to work from home as a design assistant to a knitwear designer, collaborating with her on new designs. Once they were grown up I returned to office work and  re-trained in Accountancy, eventually becoming a Company Accountant and continuing to work until four years ago when I had to take early retirement due to worsening ill health. My work and family commitments  hadn't left much time for anything else, except for a little cross stitching and family birthday cards now and then.  At last there was time for crafting again, I used to enjoy dressmaking, knitting, flower arranging, Kumihimo braiding, and jewellery making, but mostly these days I have to stick to cross-stitch and paper-crafting.  

Hi, I'm Lynn and live in Hampton Park, Victoria in Australia. I'm married with no kids, and work as Store Service/Systems Officer for a large retail company. I've been there for almost 15 years.
I love all crafts and have been pretty much doing it all my life. I have a passion for Paper tole (or 3D art) but because it was too time consuming, I decided to make cards, now I am hooked. Although I tend to paper tole some of my cards at times, can't seen to get away from it entirely.
This is my first DT position and it's really exciting to be apart of Gingerloft and the wonderful digi images from their great store.
So, come on down under to my little blog for a visit and stay a while :)
You can usually find me at Lynn's Designer Creations but if I'm not there, leave a comment
and I'll know you've dropped by :)
Hello!  I am Gale and I live on the central Oregon coast.  I have lived here since 1976.  I am an ER nurse, have been since 1990 (ugh)!  I have two full grown kids and a great husband.  I have my own Harley, (husband has one also) and love to ride when the weather permits.
I have been scrapbooking since 2005 when I decided to become a travel nurse.  After 5 years of that, I settled back on the coast.  Since I didn't have all the travel photos to scrap, I started card making in 2009.  This past year I started working with digital images.    How WONDERFUL!  To have any image you want, at any time, in seconds!  I recently found GingerLoft images.  They have wonderful detail and shading.  It makes them both easy and a pleasure to color. 
I hope you will visit my blog "Playing with Paper" .  Browse through my art and leave comments at will!

Carol H GDT Using Winter Tree
You wouldn't know it, but I really only started getting into card crafting in 2009.  Prior to that you would have laughed when you saw my cards that I attempted to make. After finding Split Coast Stampers, I started studying techniques and entered challenges to improve my skills.   I love creating cards and hope to take my paper crafting skills to another level soon with some projects I am planning.
