Outdoor Summer Fun


Hello and welcome, today w begin a new challenge at Make My Monday (MMM).  Heather has chosen #228 Outdoor Summer Fun. To see the design team's inspiration, please visit the blog. 

The great outdoors can mean so many things to so many different people. I love the beach and the countryside, which we love to explore, with a picnic backpack and a camera and we're off. 

All of the stamps I used are with a sheet of stamps included in the Creative Stamping magazine #83. The stamps are from Hunkydory Love of Stamps - Great Outdoors.  I used Distress inks, Versafine Onyx Black and Promarkers. Techniques used include Fussy cutting, using a stamping platform and using 3d foam pads.

Father's Day

 

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today, at Cardz 4 Guyz,  we begin a new challenge, of course, it being so close, we would like to see your creative touch for #349 Father's Day which is June 16th, both UK and USA, as well as many other European countries.  To see the design team's inspiration, please visit the blog.

For my card, it began with a 6" white plain edge card. The background papers are from a set in my stash., with a piece of Swiss Dots embossed card. The stamp is a Fizzy Moon -called All Bout Him.  I coloured all of the image with my alcohol pens - Promarkers. The book was blank, for the creator to add their own title, which makes it more personal. I added a blue and white gingham ribbon and tied bow.

Die - Cut -Christmas

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges. Dawn has chosen #161 Use Dies. To see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. we are currently looking to increase our Design team, please see our DT Call, if you are unsure but would like to give it a try, why not be a guest for a couple of months to see what you think? 

I began with a white scallop edge card. I used a gold piece of Mirri card for the die I introduced it to. I don't know the name or make of the die, I was gifted this and others from a friend who was decluttering.  I added this with 3d foam where I could add it, to a piece of red Hunkydory card. I finally added a few red jewels and a die cut greeting.
