Windsurfing

… and rushing to get there

Hi Everyone,

this is my second post for today.

Thanks for all your lovely comments they are very much appreciated.

I just want to share the card I made for the Cardz4Guyz ‘water’ challenge, sadly I was a little too late and the linkup had just closed, here it is anyway …

The little windsurfing penguin is from Create a Smile Stamps. I wanted to keep the card pretty much CAS, for my panel I used Artiste Spraying Inks by docrafts, my sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

Sunday Playtime

Hi Everybody,

back again with a couple of more projects, and yes, hooray! I had more playtime today. Thanks again for your lovely comments, hope you’ll like today’s offering …

first up is a Monster Birthday …

Monster Birthday

… on a simply stamped BG combined with a digi sentiment and fuzzy cut digi monster, courtesy of  Create A Smile Stamps. The stamps used to stamp the BG are Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds and PATCHWORK FRENZY Graphic Squares  both by STAMPlorations, inks (Basic Grey and Tangerine Tango) and old olive card are by Stampin’Up!, white card and metal embellies are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cardz4Guyz– no patterned paper, think this would be a great boy’s birthday card

House of Cards – colour palette , hope that this is still ok despite me having used a touch of purple

Happy Little Stampers – Sketch , slightly changed it, but hope it’s still ok

My next card is one I made using the freebie stamps which had landed on my doormat yesterday, when the postman dropped the newest copy of Papercraft Essentials through the door. I thought it was perfect for the following challenges:

– Addicted to CAS – cuddly

Time out – double the joy, use two of something  – my card features two bears

Christmas Bears

I stamped and coloured my image using a mixture of Promarkers and Tinge Alcohol Markers, rounded some corners, layered on Real Red (Stampin’Up!) and then onto my base card, stamped my sentiment, cut it into a banner, attached it using foam dots and finished off by adding a red gem and twine.

They both have been very easy cards to make. Have fun making yours.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

 

These are the STAMPlorations stamp sets I used for the background in my first card:

Saturday Playtime

Hello Everybody,

It’s Saturday and I finally got some playtime 😀 … and some quick projects to share.

First of all I want to thanks you all for all the lovely comments you left this week, they were very much appreciated. Reading them always gives me a great lift especially when I am busy doing the things that earn me some money, but then we all have to do them ….

I decided to take some inspiration from a couple of challenges for today’s cards:

the first one is being entered into:

Case This Sketch – 

Happy Little Stampers – Sketch , I moved the sentiment, hope this is ok

Cardz4Guyz – no patterned paper, mine is an all stamped card

old type

 

I stamped my BG using the VIGNETTE Old Type stamp set (STAMPlorations) in Crumb Cake (Stampin’Up! ink), I then added some dots in black using the Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds (STAMPlorations), stamped my sentiment from the Graphic Squares set (STAMPlorations) on a strip of white card, slightly distressed the edges using my finger nails simply because I couldn’t find my distress tool … LOL … and edged it with black before attaching is to my card. I then stamped nad fuzzy cut the type writer, adhered it using foam dots and finished off rounding one of the corners.

My next card is being entered into

CASology – Grass, this is where I have to mention that I’m so lucky and blessed to be on Shery’s Design Team for STAMPlorations

Case This Sketch – 

squares grass

 

I used the plain square from the PATCHWORK FRENZY Graphic Squares set to stamp my BG using the generational stamping technique in Bashful Blue (Stampin’Up! ink). I then added some stitching and a sentiment from the same set in Wild Wasabi (SU ink), die cut and added my grass (die from Clearly Besotted Stamps) and finished off by adding some punched daisies and gems. Another quick and easy card for you.

Hope you enjoyed my little offering today, back soon with more inspiration.

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
