WWC226 - Dawn's "Masculine" Anything Goes

It's that time of the week again!  Time for a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday where Dawn is our host for a Masculine "Anything Goes".



For my card I've used a Close to my Heart stamp set called "Happy Everything" and coloured the balloons in with Prisma pencils.  I stamped three balloons directly onto my card panel and then popped two up with dimensional tape.

WWC225 - Donna's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello and happy Wednesday.
It's time for a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday and this week Donna is our host with an "All About Occasions" Challenge.
I have made a Christmas card this week instead of my usual birthday card.  I hope to have a good stash of Christmas cards by the end of the year.  Well that is my intention!
I have used a digi stamp from Bugaboo for my card and coloured it in with Prisma pencils.  I cut it out with my scan n cut and adhered it with some foam tape onto a top folding card base.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

AAA Cards Challenge - I'm on the Design Team!

Hello and happy Sunday!  I'm so happy to announce that I am  joining the Design Team over at AAA Cards.
AAA cards is one of my favourite CAS card challenges and I was so excited when Jane contacted me and invited me to join them. 

 

My first challenge as a DT member is a one layer with the optional twist of Black and White.
Our sponsor is STAMPlorations and our Guest Designer is - Nancy (Nananas)
Be sure to check out Nancy's and all the other DT's cards HERE!


I immediately thought of the Boston Terrier stamp from CAS-ual Fridays called Nate & Friday.
This card took me no time at all! One layer and one colour of ink!  I added a touch of grey pencil under my image to ground him and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set.

CAS-ual Fridays Boston Terriers

Hello, I'm up on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today with this cute card I made for a Boston Terrier owner. 
I had previously posted a card on my Instagram page using the Nate & Friday Stamp set and a friend saw it and asked if I could maker her one for her daughter who owns a Boston Terrier.

I stamped one of the gorgeous pups ( I believe it is Nate) in black and cut it out with my scan n cut.  Next I sponged some purple ink over the Modern Petals Stencil onto my card panel and adhered my Boston Terrier using some foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Sayings and added a strip of striped paper.

The Flower Challenge #32



Hello and happy Thursday!  My card today is for The Flower Challenge  which is embossing.
I have a new stamp from Altenew which was begging to be used.
I stamped the floral image from "Weekend Doodles" and coloured it in with my new Set D Altenew alcohol markers.  I love the pinks and greens is this set.  I pulled out a very old "frame" embossing folder from Stampin Up and embossed the middle of my card panel.  I fussy cut out the two flowers from my coloured image and adhered them to the frame with some foam tape.  I bought a huge roll of foam tape from Bunnings for $12.00!!  What a bargain and it is good quality with just the right amount of dimension that I like!

This week Tristan is our host with a Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge.
I'm slowly getting better at making masculine cards thanks to Watercooler Wednesday!
Image may contain: one or more people and text

For my card today I have used the cute "Nate & Friday" stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays.  I stamped my cute little Boston Terrier in black ink and coloured him in with Prisma pencils.  I did some flicking with a black pencil to try to give the effect of short fur. It's a bit hard to tell in the photo.  I used a stencil from Funky Fossil for the background and stamped the sentiment from the same CAS-ual Fridays stamp set.

No photo description available.
