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:

White and Silver Snowflakes

Hi Everybody,

back with my second post of the day.

Since I’m not much use for doing anything else today -got a very bad cold- I might as well share a bit of inspiration 🙂 plus Mynnette left a lovely comment the other day suggesting joining in the blog hop at House of Cards …. what better way to spend the day!!!

Also the Snowflake Challenge is still on at Addicted to CAS … I could play along with both … here are my projects inspired by the Addicted to CAS snowflakes and the photo from a House of Cards:

… first the card I want to enter in both …
