Hello, we have a new challenge starting today at Cardz 4 Galz. Doreen has chosen a colour challenge, #182 Shades of Blue. For more information and to see the inspirational creations from the design team, please visit the blog.
As usual I made a 6" sq. card, I used navy card for the matting and layering. The two papers chosen are from a Do - Crafts Papermania paper pad - Blueberry Pie. The image is Forget - me - Not - A Gorguss stamp by Santoro. I coloured the image using both Promarkers and pencils. Embellishments are a piece of cream lace, a striped ribbon into a bow. The die cut flower and a sentiment circle from Dreamees Crafts. I hope you are well and feel drawn to having a go.

Hello, welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. Deb has chosen a technique challenge #305 Distressing. For more information and to see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog.
I have decorated a white 6" sq. card, using all papers from a paper pad - First Edition 'Wild at Heart'. I distressed all the edges with a distressing tool, instead of using scissors. I then blended the edges with Vintage Photo DI. Choosing and arranging the papers was fun, all to display a die cut of the stags. Thanks for looking, I hope you feel inspired to take part in the challenge.

Hello, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday. Debbie has chosen #111 Friendship, we need to see 'friend' in the sentiment. To see the inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog, they all love to receive comments or questions.
For my card, I have kept it simple. A 5 x 7 in. white card. The background is a sheet of white card, which was embossed with a small dot pattern embossing folder. I hunted out my Crimper, haven't used it for years, so I crimped a piece of navy card to fit across the card. The flower stamp is part of a set of stamps with the Creative Stamping #111 magazine. Climbing Flower stamps by Card Making Magic. I lightly coloured with Promarkers. Matted the image onto white and navy card. The 'hello friend' stamp is from my stash. Added a few purple sequins. I hope you enjoy the challenge.

My DT card, above, was created on a Kanban small circle card, which I made into an easel card. The stamp is from a set of stamps - Christmas Gnomes gifted with a Creative Stamping #102 magazine. I coloured him with Promarkers with a little addition of a gold gel pen. Keeping it clean and simple. The easel stopper was created using stamps from the same set and raising them on 3d foam pads. I hope you are feeling challenged to create a Clean and Simple Christmas card, adding another to your Christmas cards being made in advance.
