I used a scallop edged 6" sq. white card, with a black mat. The stamps I used are all from the same set, which I found in The Works. I used a Ranger Archival ink Sepia to stamp with. I used water colour pencils to colour the beans. I hope you enjoy the challenge and will be showing us your Beverage card.

Dog or Puppy


 Hello, welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday, Billie A has chosen #226 Dog or Puppy.  To see the wonderful inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 

I made a white 6" sq. card. I used black card throughout to back the layering papers. The papers were from an old paper pad, from my stash. I cut up a page to add the Puppy and Fetch ephemera. The puppy is from a set of Puppies from Dreamees crafts. I added a pretty flower,  large sparkly glittery gems and a simple sentiment.

D is for Dancing


hello and welcome. Today we begin a new challenge at Alphabet Challenges, Dawn has chosen                D is for Dancing.  To see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 
For my card, I adore Art Deco, so this challenge gave me an opportunity to make a card for the challenge with an image from a Hunkydory  paper pad Art Deco Paradise. I used a tall tent fold slimline card, a mat of gold Mirri card with a layer of fancy gold paper, to which the image was adhered. The sentiment is a die cut. I look forward to seeing your Dancing cards.

World Bee Day May 20th


 Hello and welcome. Today at Cardz 4 Galz our new challenge, chosen by me, is #225 World Bee Day May 20th. To see the wonderful inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 

For my card I was inspired by a card in the Hobby Art gallery. I began with a 6" sq. card. I stamped in the four corners #save the bees. I used a 4.5 sq. of white card, using stamps from a Hobby Art Bee Friendly set of stamps I decorated the white card. The bee I stamped separately, coloured with Promarkers, fussy cut and added to the card with 3d foam. I added this to a black layer. Enjoy making a card for the Bees Day.  Best wishes.

Stars and or Stripes

 

Hello, welcome to my blog.  I've had a quiet week of blogging, but have been making lots of cards, during my free time. Today we begin a new challenge at Cards 4 Guyz. 

Dawn has chosen for us #347 Stars and or Stripes.

To see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 

I began with a black 6" sq/ card. I knew I wanted to do something modern, during my research on Pinterest I was inspired by a card similar to the one I made. It's simple but so effective. Strips of coloured card with the letters for Happy at the end  looking like paint brushes. I hope you like it.

Florals


Hello and welcome. today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday. Sue J has chosen
 #225 Florals. To see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 
The card above is my clean, precise version. I began with a white 6" sq. card. Added a mat, using a 6" piece of Hunkydory Inky waters Mirri card. Using a page from a Hunkydory Little Square book of Neon, I added a base sheet to gold Mirri. Upon this I fussy cut two more sheets to decoupage the three sections on the window. Adding a small greeting message. 

Not everyone likes clean and precise - so here  is another card with Florals with which I had fun, making it grungy and not neat. 


Whatever your style, I look forward to seeing your card in the challenge.
